“Great Fine Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Decided to make reservations here for our anniversary since it was a more upscale place which is usually not my style. The food and atmosphere was great. I could see some viewing this place as somewhat "snooty" but we were treated fine, and overall it was a great experience.

“A good experience............”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Sween Basil is a nice restaurant, our first experience. The food menu was a little limited but we each found a good dinner selection. The wait staff was pleasant. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate it at 7.5. I could recommend to others.

“Just the Cure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Went to Vail for a girls weekend. Had a great time, maybe too much of a great time, and this restaurant was just the cure before we headed back down to Denver. Staff were great. Roasted veg soup was delicious. Four of us had the lamb salad. I think the server described it as out of this world and he did not exaggerate. Two had the burger and said it was delicious. Wish we had gone there for dinner on the Saturday night as well. Will definitely go back again. There is a reason it is the #1 rated restaurant in Vail.
