The Bistro at Marshdale - Evergreen Colorado

For our anniversary dinner we wanted to do something out of the normal.  The lovely ladies at the Highland Haven Inn suggested The Bistro as a great spot for a celebration dinner and we took the recommendation. 

We got dressed up and headed just out of town and found this cozy yet elegant restaurant.  The Bistro is a renovated {but not too renovated} lodge turned Bistro.  The Bistro serves great European Cuisine.  A mix between Italian and French selections.

The atmosphere was great.  We ate at candle light, enjoyed our wine and listened to a lovely piano player.  I felt comfortable in this "fancy" setting, unlike other High End restaurants we felt like we could fit in here.  Fancy but not snobby!  Perfection if you ask me. 

The Bistro prides themselves at fresh food. 

I present to you, the delicious bread and oil and balsamic for dipping.  Oh, so good! 

We enjoyed this bread a lot, pretty sure we had 3 helpings!  Ooops!! 

Next we shared the Caprese Salad.  Wow!  The tomatoes were so sweet and the Mozzarella was to die for.  My only critique...more Basil Pesto please! 

For dinner I went out of my comfort zone.  I had the House Smoked Pork Short Ribs with Horseradish BBQ sauce.  It came with a large portion and selection of steamed veggies and for aditional side I chose the creamy polenta.  The plate was giant!  It was so good!  The meat literally fell off the bone, which is perfect for me because I have an issue with eating meat off a bone. {weird I know!}

Jeremy had a Pasta dish.  The Bistro Smoked Salmon with Penne pasta in a Vodka Cream Garlic Sauce.  I didn't try this, I'm not a fish eater, but Jeremy said it was a great dish and was HUGE too.  The amount of food that you get for your meal is impressive.  The prices aren't bad either. 

We would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Evergreen or Conifer Colorado.  Perfect for a night out in a Mountain town. 

Reservations are recommended!  This place is pretty small and gets very busy during peak hours!
