Lord Gore is our go to restaurant to eat at before the ballet or concerts during the Vail Valley summer festival. During the week the restaurant is closed so we eat in the bar at the hotel instead. They are very different dining experiences, but both excellent. The parking is very close for the performances.

We were excited to try Lord Gore because of all the great reviews about the game dishes on the menu. We were very disappointed that there was no elk, no bison, not even any lamb offered on the menu. Two of us decided on the sea bass and only ate a third of it because it was so dry. One... More

I appreciate you taking the time to let us know we fell short of your expectations. First, I would like to apologize for the lack of game meats on our menu. During the summer months we change our menu items to feature more of fresh fish, farmed vegetables and local meats. I apologize that you found the sea bass to... More

The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere is quite, warm and comfortable. There was a unusual smell to the dining room though. Not unappetizing but not a food smell either.

We actually ended up at The Lord Gore because we were staying at the Lodge and had a cranky baby on our hands and were all just too pooped to go out. What a fantastic decision! From the moment we arrived everyone from the hostess Bree who sat us to the waiter Chris who took care of us was incredibly... More

We ordered the elk and the bison and both dishes were excellent (the elk slightly better than the bison). Presentation, flavor, and quality of all ingredients was very good. Service was attentive and solid and they had a nice wine list. Atmosphere was nice as well. All in all a great restaurant. More restaurants in the area should have game... More

With the demise of the famous Tyrolean restaurant several years ago, the Lord Gore has become the 'go to' place for those seeking game-inspired cuisine. Some may be put off by the the condo setting of the Manor Vail Lodge, but once you're inside everything feels special. While the menu has a nice variety capable of satisfying a variety of... More

Lord Gore, located about five minutes east of Vail village, is the perfect restaurant for anyone looking for an exceptional meal in Vail. Our waiter Chris was the perfect mix of professionalism and character. The chef and owner visited every table while we were there.
