Good German/Austrian fare, Vail prices

Nice and intimate setting, good German/Austrian food and attentive service. The lunch (served until 4 p.m.) has much better prices than dinner; and enough to offer; worth it -- for Vail standards. They also have some non-German dishes like a good appetizer fondue, escargots, and tiramisu.

We came in for dessert-- we walked in a the waiter was laying down in the booth eating with his girlfriend or who ever-- we ordered two desserts-- they were ok.. perhaps a little stale-- we ordered some drinks too-- they pretty much acted like we were just a bother and we couldn't eat fast enough to get out of...

What a great little alpine restaurant! We had lunch here several times throughout the week. The Kaëspätzle, while probably not your healthiest lunch option, was AMAZING! Bartender Jeff was personable and very helpful with regards to the local area/attractions. Very nice outdoor seating area, good for people watching in Vail Village!

Alpenrose is absolutely wonderful. The patio is great and food is excellent. We go there twice a month and are never disappointed. Waiters are top notch.

There was no hostess at all we had a reservation and when we arrived there was no one to sit us, we stayed there just standing and a waiter saw us and guided us to our table and then we waited again for a waiter or waitress to approach which took about 10 minutes, then the waiter's service was really...

GREAT selection of beers. Several sizes from which to choose! Porch is "happening" and a great place to people watch. Apres ski hangout gets crowded and the staff gets overwhelmed. On a busy day, be prepared to WAIT! It IS, however, worth the wait. Authentic cuisine and atmosphere transports you from Vail to Germany in a heartbeat!

The Alpenrose is a top spot to experience Vail's scenery and immerse in the "Alps" atmosphere of Colorado. Its old world charm, menu and bakery makes this restaurant a favorite of ours when we ski Vail each winter. Our family celebrated a special event here this Christmas season and we had a five star dinner with each of us savoring... More

Alpenrose is located very close to a bus stop, so getting there is quite easy--if you pass the huge metal moose, you've gone too far! if you enjoy a more peaceful dining environment, request seating upstairs away from the bar area. Our server was very friendly, attentive, and accommodating. We ordered the büdnerteller (charcuterie board), split pea soup, osso buco,... More

Three adults and two children had a very nice meal here. A large variety of options to suit everyone's tastes. Good children's menu. Very nice wine list with German and Austrian whites represented well. Fair prices for Vail. Negative was the beer menu on which most of the draught beers were not available and switched out without something verbally explained.... More
