This is a great restaurant. The food was so fresh, good quality and yummy with great service. I was surprised seeing as it's inland and better than many of the places we tried whilst we were in san francisco. You need to make a reservation as it can get quite busy. .

We eat here at least twice every time we visit Vail. The seafood is excellent, and we love the scallops, oysters and seafood pasta with choice of sauces. It is by no means inexpensive but this is Vail and you will get consistently good fish cooked perfectly. It is a busy place, reservations are a must.

Not what it's touted as. They were not overbooked or even full on a Friday night. There was a mistake in the reservation by 15 minutes (on our part) and they cancelled the reservation. OK, they were able to seat us immediately so being off by 15 minutes wasn't a problem. Took them 10+ minutes to offer a drink and... More

If I could eat there every day of my life I would! The food is delicious, the wine selection is good and the service is great! I recommend you order the tuna tacos, the warm Alaskan king crab legs and of course the sea bass with noodles! For dessert we ordered the brownie and it was very good! Bon Appetite!

Been coming to Vail for several years and never seem to get here. Made my reservation midday for that evening. Unfortunately we were here during spring break so the filled up. Could only get 730p time. They honored it immediately the time when we arrived. We shared the pureed broccoli cheddar soup and really enjoyed it. Portions were huge and... More

We loved our dinner at the Montauk seafood grille. When you have. 4 yr old dinner can be a challenging event. This restaurant makes it easy by proving white paper table clothes and crayons. My son was quiet and busy the entire time and the food was excellent. We would definately return for dinner.

Progressive drink menu, fish as fresh as you'd get on the coast, pick your preparation. Will not disappoint.

We went there 10 years ago. It was excellent and we decided to go back during this past ski vacation on 3/11/2015. It was very disappointed. I categorize the food as average the best or more like an expansive diner food. We ordered calamari as appetizer. The batter was so thick that it was like eating fried dough. I order... More

In the land of hungry skiers it is hard to find healthy food, but this restaurant has many excellent choices. I had grilled prawns with green beans and hot slaw. My partner had the miso salmon, both very good! Dessert was Spanish flan light delicate and the brad pudding creamy and rich as it should be. this is some of... More
