La Marmotte is a classy restaurant that has a comfortable atmosphere. With many food choices, there is never a shortage on the types of food you can try when you visit. Mostly all of the food prepared in the restaurant uses fresh ingredients from the local farms in the area. The wait staff can recommend wine pairings to go with the dish that you choose to order, and the food comes fast and hot. With many specials each night, you can try something different each time you visit. Roasted Idaho Buffalo Tenderloin is the favorite on the list of something new to try, or at least it was during our visit. After a day on the slopes, you want to sit back and relax and La Marmotte has the food that can hit the spot.
What They’re Known for: Having an interchangeable menu depending on the season and what is currently fresh on the market. The chef working at the restaurant is a world renowned chef (Mark Reggiannini) who has worked for top five star restaurants throughout the country.
What to Watch for: The wait staff seems to be busy, so if you’re looking for that extra level of attention and immediate response, you may be disappointed. Still, more often than not, the food makes up for it.
