A fun weekend in Vail, CO

My husband and I had a late dinner with the best outdoor seating overlooking the pool and Gore Creek. The food was absolutely delicious and Lucas, our server, was very personable and professional. We would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience!

We decided to eat here because it was close to our hotel and we had just arrived from Florida. Being two hours ahead, we arrived early and were probably the first patrons there. Doug was our waiter, and he couldn't have been nicer. We were celebrating our 35 wedding anniversary and the staff was very nice to mention it. My... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. We came in late for dinner and you would never know we were keeping them. The service was above and beyond....the food was superb. Our table had the pork shoulder, noodle bowl, a pizza and the red drum fish. Can't wait to return. They also can adapt almost anything on the menu... More

Had a mixed experience here. I ordered the 6oz 7x Kobe beef and it was terrible!! Very tough and hard to cut even with a serrated knife, and the flavor was so-so. Should be able to cut this with a fork! My wife had the red drum which she said was good. She also had the cherry pie for dessert,... More

The Atwater has good food at a fair price and the atmosphere is fine. Outdoor dining is special. A drink by the fire pit is also very pleasant. But the service so slow it turned us off. It is near where we live so will try it again, hopefully with better service.

Comfortable restaurant, some locations have a nice view of running water, located inside the Vail Cascade Hotel. Attentive, international waitstaff. Nicely done buffet breakfast for around $20. Bitterman you heavily geared towards meat. A variety of items, however, and a variety of prices from moderate to expensive. Good wine list. Good choice if you are staying at the Vail Cascade.

Came here for an anniversary dinner and while the food was actually quite good, the service was horrific!! Was told there was a wedding event earlier in evening but that a later reservation would be fine..... Definitely not the case!! There seemed to be ample servers and the restaurant was half empty when we arrived, but all of the staff,... More

I was celebrating a big birthday with all my family in Vail. We were capping off a wonderful week with our family dinner at The Atwater Grill at Vail Cascade Resort. All I can say is that it was one big disaster after another! First, our waiter, who I don't think was really a waiter, was terrible. I believe he... More

My husband & I found this gem in the Cascade resort. We had a table outside overlooking the Gore. The wine selection was great - I had a very nice Zin and my husband had the Cabernet & both were tasty. We both ordered the smaller portion of the 7X Colorado Kobe. I didn't want either of the sauces -... More
