Visited Estes Park on President Day, Sunday. For lunch we had shrimp scampi and risotto stuffed ravioli with heirloom tomatoes and an excellent Italian wine. This restaurant is situated near the river and Riverwalk so I recommend arriving early or make a reservation for a window seat. I can hardly wait to return in the summer and hopefully be seated...

We made reservations. We were seated on time, rapid courteous wait staff who made a great recommendation for me. You got salad and garlic bread with your entree. The food was delicious and I thought reasonably priced. We were very happy with our night.

We had a wonderful experience here. Live music but not loud and just so relaxing. The food was great and friendly service. Would definitely sit outside if the weather is nice.

We love this place! Great location, right on the river in downtown Estes. The atmosphere is like dining in your Aunt's mansion with good food, good service. Also like it for lunch-good portions--eat by the window and watch the people walk by.

My wife and I found Mama Rose's after our usual Mexican restaurant decided to close for the day. How fortuitous. This excellent, cozy restaurant is along the path beside the stream, tucked into some aspens. Its decor and good staff welcome guests. There's a menu posted outside for convenience. Our server, Heather, was one of the best we have had.... More

The food wasn't spectacular, it was okay for the price, the appetizer was very good, but the pasta was mediocre. It was supposed to be a romantic dinner for me and my boyfriend but it was deeply disturbed by a group of drunk and loud women that practically annoyed all guests. I would not go back.

Had dinner at Mama Rose's last night - we had Chicken Marsala and wine by the glass. The meal was wonderful, beautifully cooked and seasoned and reasonably priced. Service and ambience was great - overall a very enjoyable experience. Will return.
