Went for the 3 courses for $39 bucks, but didn't really want anything that was on special. So we had the Kobe beef sirloin. Great dish, prepared perfectly, add a great glass off wine and a salad and a great wait staff. Perfect evening.

Fantastic cuisine, lots of additional touches for our anniversary celebration, wonderful attention paid to our children, and a beautiful setting! We couldn't ask for more. Thank you, Lucas!

Really nice restaurant. Great location in Vail village. Request a table on the patio during the summer. Food is great. We go for the fresh shucked oysters but sometimes they run out early. Staff is friendly and attentive. Great place to meet friends.

Ironically we have stayed at the Cascade Resort 5 years in a row and until this year had not eaten at the restaurant there, The Atwater. I am very glad we finally decided to try it, it is a terrific restaurant with delicious food, stylish ambiance and excellent service. We brought our two teenage boys with us for a nice... More

The restaurant at vail cascade hotel and spa is nice and friendly and most importantly has great food. We went there the night we arrived to the hotel, we were all tired and didn't feel like looking for a kids friendly restaurant. We know this restaurant is one of the best in vail but weren't sure if it will be... More

Food here was very good with exceptional service from the staff but a bit on the pricy side. Would eat there again because of the quality of the food.

I enjoyed the terrace overlooking the mountain while I ate some wonderful French toast. The service was great and so was the view.

My husband and I hosted a family reunion in Cascade Village this week. We planned a dinner for 23 at Atwater. We worked with Lauren, the restaurant manager, so that everything would go smoothly when we arrived for dinner. We were feeding people from 83 years old to 5 years old. We pre-ordered several of their delicious small plates (shrimp... More
