Our family of nine went to an afternoon movie at Cinebistro. We didn't order "food", just snacks so can't comment on burgers. With 6 kids we were disappointed they did not have kid sized drinks, only choice was 32 oz. which is too much for the kids. After inquiring though, they agreed to split... read more

I used to visit Cinebistro and was always impressed with the food and service. The service is still okay, but the food is disappointing. Not a fan of the new concept at all.

CineBistro used to be a great bistro/theater in the heart of Vail Village. Movies were current and seats very comfortable. Food service at your seat in the theater was one of the main draws, with a very delicious menu. However, recent changes mean that the menu is now basically just a burger bar. There is no more in seat service... More

This movie theater has a great atmosphere but they have changed their services and food. The menu is no longer a full menu. This is pretty much a HORRIBLE burger bar! My burger tasted like fishy uncooked meat.... I wasted my money when I could of spent half that price for a great burger. Their prices are way overpriced. I... More

I don't really write reviews, but...really? Just a burger bar?? We bought the movie tickets, then found out they no longer offer a full menu or, well, service. I wish we had known. I can go to the Riverwalk theater, hit Zino before, and have better food for waaaaay less, AND have someone ask me for my order. Bad choice... More

This place used to be great, the food was amazing. We would come, have a bottle of wine (yes they do have a premium bar), some appetizers and desserts and enjoy a movie. We still got our bottle of wine, but the fact we had to pair it with a terrible burger that took about 3 minutes to cook, kind... More

Used to love coming here for a good bite and a movie, now it's not worth the premium for their lack of food. Went from a full menu to just burgers, overpriced burgers at that. Save a few bucks, and hit up red box.

They have taken the full menu and servers away and are now only offering a 'Burger Bar' where you fill out what you want on a piece of paper and they give you a buzzer that has a loud voice to alert you when your burger is ready. When it's ready, you go to the bar, take your tray, (along... More

This is a great experience if you're not caught off guard by the prices. The food is great, the atmosphere really comfortable, and in the center of a world class ski resort.

I was a little skeptical walking in given some of the other reviews. I couldn't have found them further from the truth. 1.) The gripe about the ticket prices being too high: Yes, you pay more for your movie tickets, but I would happily do that to have luxury seats, service, and clean bathrooms like you get at Cinebistro.
