If you can sit outside and enjoy the views of the Holy Cross Wilderness, you will have the best of experiences. The food was fresh and well prepared -- a welcome step up from the "pub food" offered at most of the restaurants. Dining room is small, but food is worth sampling.

The name and the menu of Bistro 14 gave us the impression that it would have a lot nicer of an ambiance than it had. It was a very casual atmosphere. I guess this should have been a given since it is next to a ski lift, but nonetheless. The food was fantastic. We both ordered burgers and I would... More

The food was tasty but overpriced. I ordered Beet Salad which was a regular size bowl $11. We ordered the Crab Dip appetizer $14., it was very good. When our check came, we had been charged twice for every item on the tab. Plus they add in 18% gratuity on all checks without telling us

Several of us went up the gondola in Lionshead to have lunch after visiting the Vail Arts Festival. It was 1:30 when we arrived. We decided it was too windy outside so went inside at Bistro 14. There were several tables full outside but no more than 5 out of 20+ tables were occupied inside. We received our drink order... More

Food choice limited. And ok, not terrible,but not worth the expensive price tag. Service extremely slow. Took far too long to have lunch. Glad I'm not visiting this place again.

Last night of our holiday in Vail. Hoping for something special. By chance a Tuesday evening, and 2 mains ( entrees) for the price of one. Uninspiring menu ie quick cook / pre prepared. Nacho starter - good. Main course x 2 trout. Put on table whilst we still eating the starters. Tasted awful, and no more than 2 mouthfuls... More

Cool atmosphere- great mountaintop dining experience for family. Food was good, but not great. Cocktails were terrific. Beer selection was poor because they were out of most choices.

Vail is renowned for having great food. I never went to dinner at bistro 14 because of all the other options in town. I have now changed my mind The food is amazing. Tonight we had the duck salad which is a meal In itself. The ahi was fabulous. The trout totally amazing. And being a Tuesday 50% off all... More

Situated at the top of the Lionshead Gondola this is a gem of a find. Although there is a limited menu the quality of food was superb and the service excellent. There is also a very good children's menu for the young ones in your group. While not cheap, compared to the rest of Vail Mountain it is excellent value... More
