Service was friendly and helpful. The ambiance was upscale and historic (with vintage stained glass) and fit our anniversary celebration. The Seared Sea Scallops and Prime Rib Bacon appetizer was amazing except for the over-fried sweet potato chip. The lobster burger (lobster tail on a burger) was different but it worked. We were worried the meat might overwhelm the lobster... More

With each visit, we have received the best in quality of entrees and attentive, professional service. As a Durango local, we dine at Eolus at least six times per year and have found a wonderful variety in menu and the food exceptional.

Best food and service we have experienced in town. The staff was attentive, friendly, and helpful. The food was excellent with fresh local ingredients and we could tell. All around great meal. We can't wait to go back.

Eolus has a private room on the second floor with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. There is also a private restroom and bar area that are included with the space. I received many #BestSteakEver comments from my guests and the set drink menu was a hit. The chef owner was very attentive and the manager/ bar manager were beyond... More

This is a well capitalized joint with trained staff. However, the menu is off-putting with endless food-art and very few items that seem familiar. The sushi is good, but too large to be an appetizer. The hangar steak is a wonderful entree, but I don't want to precede it with a 'designer' salad with beets or grapes. It's just difficult... More

We had the hamachi volcano roll and the surf and turf. Everything was fantastic. The staff was professional and fast and the food was decadent. We will be back!

Good food, good atmosphere, attentive staff. A bit on the pricey side but definitely a nice place to eat.

My experience here was not great, the calamari app was very salty and not of very good quality. Service was ok but again nothing special. I would go to Seasons before I went back to this place

My wife and I visit Eolus regularly and we always have great food and service. This time we brought 6 of our friends and the experience was just as good. Chris the owner/chef is awesome even coming out to talk with guests at the end of the evening. Definitely one of the top three restaurants in Durango if not the... More

One of Durango's higher-end restaurants but worth every penny for a fancy night out. I still dream of the goat-cheese stuffed squash blossoms. So good!
