Caught this fantastic restaurant at the end of the ski season. How lucky were we when it was buy one entree get one free. My husband started with the smoked trout appetizer- fantastic. A wonderful lady was sitting next to us and recommended the short ribs, served with white polenta. Unbelievable. She even shared her kale. While my pork chop... More

This used to be one of my favorite places but this summer it was awful. Hopefully it was a blip in an otherwise long run of good food.

Was highly recommended and for good reason. Extremely well prepared food, excellent service and a very creative menu. I would have given it a five rating were it not for the noise. That was the only distraction from an otherwise perfect meal.

Our party of 6 all agreed that this was the most over rated dining experience that we had while in Vail...very small servings. The salads are quite small...the trout was probably the best. The braised short ribs were average...I would suggest going elsewhere for fine dining

The menu had a pretty good selection. I like that 90% of the food is organic and found it pleasant that dishes with gluten were marked, rather than the other way around. I had the swordfish and it was very good. The conversation with the bartender was good and light.

Four of us, including a 9 and 12 year old. Enjoyed their fair lady drink-gin with muddled cucumber and touch of strawberry. They bring out paper thin bread and a thicker grainy seed kind that was delicious with their bean dip. Kids loved it too. Service was very helpful. I had trout and it had a nice crunchy exterior with... More
