Review of Fontenot in Winter Park, Co.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Fontenots Seafood & Grill in Winter Park, Co.  The restaurant was nicely decorated.  Our waiter was polite and efficient. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious.  I had their special, salmon with a prawn sauce.  The entree was served with equally good mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables.  While the entrees are a good size they aren’t overly big.  However, I would recommend ordering either off the appetizer menu or just an entree.

The entree was served with a wonderful soup, black bean and chicken.  The soup was filling and hot.  There are several great appetizers; including prawns and southern fried green tomatoes.  Do expect to pay at least $50 if both of you order entrees.  If you are staying in Winter Park use coupons to your advantage.  My husband and I were able to get two free draft beers with our coupons.

Tip #1 – Unless you are planning to share or doing some heavy duty hiking the next day, avoid the pasta.  Pasta entrees tend to have a lot of cream and a big portion.

Tip #2 – Take into account everything you’ll be eating.  Take into consideration the bread your waiter will bring and the soup or salad.

Tip # 3 – Skip the appetizer.  You can always order appetizers later.  But chances are you’ll feel full with the entree.  We tend to order based on how hungry we think we are.  The only problem is this means we tend to order too much.
