Excellent food! So refreshing to have owner/manager/executive chef help to make dinner selections. From start to finish our meal was outstanding!

Sari does not take accountability for her unacceptable business morale, The cupcakes were good but dry. The owner/ manager/ executive chef did not do anything when I had an issue. VERY bad customer service.

I can't begin to describe how wonderful this restaurant at Tamarron Lodge is! We have been visiting The Yellow Carrot each time we visit Durango (monthly) and have had wonderful meals. I highly recommend this restaurant for a casual but excellent meal!

Great tasting and creative food. I and my wife enjoyed dishes the likes of which we'd not experienced elsewhere in Durango. We enjoyed both unique (and nicely spiced) offerings, as well as delicious twists on the more traditional. The service is personalized and the bar both friendly and relaxing. We've been two nights in a row, and are hoping to... More

Durango's Yellow Carrot specializes in gourmet take out with a limited daily selection of delicious choices, including vegetarian and gluten-free. It's a good idea to call ahead to see what's on offer. This is the perfect place to stop for something to take to a pot luck supper or dinner at home when you just don't want to cook. It's... More

We've made a semi-annual tradition of purchasing 9-12 of the Yellow Carrot's giant, beautifully decorated cupcakes to place on a platter for birthdays in place of cakes. They have so many flavors that its fun to quarter them and let people try multiple flavors. Our daughters get a kick out of the pretty decorations. The basil limeade, the wonderfully seasoned,...

They did a great job with my son's wedding. Their food is really good. We had a potato bar. Which was delicious. The only thing I would change is to label what was at the food bar. They also did the flowers and cake which were absolutely beautiful. The cake was also delicious. .
