We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was here and the ambiance was fantastic too. Don't miss the upstairs patio and live music in the evenings. Surprising find at a park and we appreciated a sit down restaurant after the cafeteria style breakfast and lunch!

My family stayed at the Farview Lodge at Mesa verde. Dining choices were pretty slim. We'd been on a family road trip for a few days and decided to give the Metate Room a try. The food was really tasty and unique. Fair prices, too, considering we were next to nowhere. Our waiter, Colby Stanton, was terrific. Our second night, when deciding where to eat, the kids persuaded us that we should go see Colby again. The hostess told us he was working the lounge but we were welcome to head up there to eat dinner. The unexpected bonus was musician Tim Guidotti playing his guitar and singing everything from John Denver to Supertramp with Pink Floyd thrown in. He took requests and our daughter joined him at the mic for a Neil Diamond favorite. Colby was crazy busy but still had time to interact with our kids and gave us a second night of great service. Colby and Tim teamed up to give our family a very memorable experience at a unique venue with a fantastic view. Definitely order their cheese stuffed cannoli dessert. Yum.

Was the bread a bit overplayed? Too salty if you ask me and the tortillas tasted store bought. The waiter introduces you to the bread so i feel bad dissing a food friend to whom I have been formally introduced. Entrees were great.

We ate there 2 nights. One of the meals in particular was excellent. We went back a 2nd night and it was good also.

My companion and I had dinner during our stay at Mesa Verde at the Metate Room. It's rather expensive but a decent restaurant with some interesting choices. I had a pork medallions entree which was OK but not spectacular. My companion had the quail entree and she enjoyed it very much. Overall, the Metate Room was nice, but not my most memorable recent dining experience.
