Great Breakfast!

They offer more, but that was our breakfast spot. Great food and wonderful service, as well as brought some things to the room for us.

Only brekky was consumed here. One gets the sense there was an abundance of family pride that helped ensure that the quality was commensurate with the rates.

First off, this is an hotel restaurant in the States. Just keep that in mind. While they're great in London, it's different here. Pros: Large selection of items to choose from, around $40 pp. Eggs served so many ways I can't remember. Salmon plentiful. Omelette station Great view of the creek nextdoor. Excellent service, wait staff Bread was fresh Cons:... More

Whether you want to pick from the super fresh buffet or order something from the Kitchen, the breakfast area was the perfect place to start the day. The staff was meticulous and appropriately professional. 3 different newspapers were available for reading and the entire room is open to the Valley's morning sunlight. Literally a sunroom, if the weather is right,... More

I've eaten at Ludwig's prior to this visit and I must say that my last visit was better. The last visit i had opted for the breakfast buffet and was able to order made to order eggs at no additional charge. This time we opted for the buffet but the made to order eggs were an additional $7. The buffet... More

We had breakfast there, once our hotel`s restaurant was closed and it was wonderful! It was snowing and the view from the restaurant windows was gorgeous! The food was outstanding, with delicious blueberries, raspberries that we usually don`t have in our hometown. Various types of bread, eggs, bacon, sausages and really delicious chocolate croissants! Hot tea, juices and coffee are... More

I was disappointed in Ludwigs...for the money I expected the food to be better and the service to be better. I had the bream (a type of fish) and it was fishy. I should have sent it back but was in a big group and did not want to make a scene. The restaurant itself is nice although we faced... More

Just loved this place. The best restaurant in Vail. Total gluten free fine dining awesomeness. My compliments to the chef. We turned up not realising how fine dining the place was... Dressed in our ski gear, oops! Staff accommodated us, made us feel relaxed. Amazing wine list, amazing food. Just amazing.

Even though I normally don't eat gluten-free, I found the food to be excellent and the staff and the general manager to be very helpful. Will definitely be coming back.

My husband and I purchased a Travel Zoo voucher for Ludwigs for a 3 course meal and it was one of the best we have ever had. Excellent service, excellent food and excellent atmosphere. There was only 1 or 2 items on the full menu that were not covered under the voucher so this was definitely worth it. The wait... More
