Enjoyed our evening at Twin Owls. Good service and nice rustic atmosphere. Casual —reservations a must and request the main room as the side room is non-descript.

I went here with high expectations, boy was I disappointed. The chef should be working in a truck stop, however, I have had better steaks there. The Rib eye was cut a little thicker than paper thin, even the waiter seemed embarrassed. Are you kidding?...More

I assure you that I wrote an authentic review of my experience at your restaurant. I am sorry for the typo in the review. I did not catch the word "are" before I hit submit. However, as I said in my review, the hostess the night we were there (as soon as you opened that day so that we would miss the dinner rush hour) WAS rude to us. As I said, this was a few years ago. At the time, there was a business on Moraine Ave called "The Bistro" that was in an old gas station or perhaps it used to be a convenience store. It was before you reach Mary's Lake Road, on the right hand side as you head toward the National Park. At any rate, we didn't wish to have that kind of atmosphere for our anniversary dinner. You may perhaps ask around about The Bistro so that you know that there WAS a restaurant in that kind of building. I think they later moved to St. Vrain, and now they appear to be out of business. So, I have no idea why you would say that it isn't an authentic review. Perhaps your hostess was having a bad night, I don't know. I can only review what happened to me.
