“Nice dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Our reservation had requested a window table, but they brought us to a table along the wall, even though there were at least two window tables open. We asked the hostess for a window table and they did move us, however, not honoring reservation requests when they are available is unacceptable. The decor is forgettable, and nothing very impressive! It is not a romantic setting, so don't expect it. Despite these drawbacks, the food and service were very good. It is expensive, as expected for a Ritz restaurant, but the food makes it worth returning for a visit.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stay at the Ritz and typically eat here at least 3 times for dinner during our stay- either in the bar or dining room. The food is always fantastic and service is wonderful. The signature dishes are great - for you tuna cone fans, they are off the menu but feel free to place an order - they are still available nightly.

“Skip it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

With such great fine dining alternatives in the Beaver Creek / Vail area this is a restaurant to skip. Although their risotto and gnocchi appetizers were 5 stars the rest of the meal was not memorable. No one in our party of 5 was impressed with their entree. Prices are expected to be high in this restaurant and the decor, ambiance delivers, unfortunately, the food did not. It was not bad, but at these prices you expect amazing food and it just wasn't. In addition to that, it took at least 25 minutes for our entree to arrive after we were done with the appetizers.

“Lunch was extremely busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Our service was slow and not great. However food came out piping hot and was delicious, which helps make up for missing bartender/server. I will go back to give a try another time.

“Fantastic meal and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Ate here on 12/28/12 with our family. We are foodies who eat in NYC frequently.

Service was first class and friendly. Menu choices were excellent with something for everyone.

First course was excellent - steak tartare, gnocchi, and risotto with while alba truffles (shaved by chef at table). Main courses - interesting combination of flavors without being too fancy - Colorado lamb chops, seared tuna, chicken and weiner schnitzel. Every plate was cleaned. Dessert choices were also interesting and we enjoyed cookies, chocolate purse and pear/ apple cobbler.

Wine list was good but expensive. Sommelier was helpful. Meal was expensive - consistent with what you expect in LA, Vegas or NYC.

Restaurant decor was nice and not too loud.

We lucked out meeting Wolfgang Puck who took the time to schmooze with every table.

We look forward to eating here again next time we visit Vail or Beaver Creek.
