    I was a little nervous when I saw the two previous reviews here, posted after we booked the venue, but I think they were totally unfair... or at least wildly different from our experience. This venue is GORGEOUS. Jessica was so much help--our coordinator raved about her too! And above all, the food was FANTASTIC. We had such a great time and our guests were enraptured by the ceremony venue, which has a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains. Get married here!!!

    The View Restaurant in Estes Park, Colorado is one of my favorite settings for a wedding and reception with its wall of windows overlooking the green mountain town below. I have eaten there several times and have always been very impressed with the delicious food. One of the gems in Estes Park.
