Nice sit down restaurant in heart of Vail Village

Great steakhouse atmosphere in Vail Village. Would highly recommend for an evening dinner where you want to dress up. Walking distance to most of the properties in Vail Village and Lionshead, or just a quick shuttle ride to. Great steak and pasta dishes.

My onion soup wasn't to die for, too sweet for my taste, not worth the calories so I didn't finish it. My filet mignon was delicious as was the scalloped potatoes that came with it. One of my friends had lamb and commented that it was really good but two that had trout commented that it was tasteless. Not many... More

We were referred to this restaurant from the owners of a bicycle store from whom we rented mountain bikes for day. After riding the two mountains all day, we were eager to enjoy a delicious meal alongside the beautiful river next to it. Upon arriving at the restaurant, my wife stood waiting in the lobby by the hostess' window for... More

Steak is served with style and substance here, but one gets the sense other options are equally solid, so overall another recommended diner in Vail.

Surf or turf? Went because of the previous reviews. Dated décor in a good location. Unfortunately, the menu could use some updating too. If you sit by a limited window seat, you might be a little more forgiving but for the prices you pay, you would expect a little more. The service, however, was excellent.

This past weekend the restaurant was having a special of 50% off all entree's. So myself and a few coworkers went out to enjoy ourselves. After a bottle of wine to start off dinner, we tried almost every appetizer they had available. Unfortunately they ran out of a few things but we made due! I loved the sausage wrapped in... More
