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.

I've been 3 or 4 times and each time is a different experience. My first visit was wonderful. Great pasta, great meatball, great service. Second visit food was cold and ignored by waiter. The last time was awful, we left after being seated and left for 15 minutes

Visited with my family on Thanksgiving weekend. Everything was of good quality. Located downtown and easily accessible. One of my top choices in the area.

Our waiter remembered us from visiting before! Took very good care of us and we enjoyed our family meal in a semi elegant atmosphere! Thank you for a great experience again.

I was with 2 other people and all 3 of us thought it was great. Try the Mushroom ravioli, it was wonderful!
