The place was nice and warm and cozy. The Food was absolutely delicious. I did not leave one bite in the plate. The salad, the entree and the dessert were all a pleasure to the palate. Strongly recommend it. The service was superb. The menu is not huge but the items are really amazing

Everything was excellent. The food was delicious (the duck leg, salmon and brussel sprouts were highlights). The service was fantastic... MarJean, the manager, made our visit very special and looked out for our every need. I would definitely go back, and I highly recommend it for a great meal in Vail.
