I am giving 3 stars because between the time I booked a reservation and the time we dined, the entire menu changed and we were not notified. I made a reservation based off of the previous menu and was very surprised when we were seated...and informed it was a prixe fixed menu and was a fondue experience. The website now reflects this, but it didn't at the time I booked. Our server was excellent, very nice and attentive. The place is very quaint and we have no complaints about the service or ambiance. The salads were very good. The fondue included steak, chicken and sausage, 2 cheeses, and vegetables. The quantities of meat were quite small. Some type of seasoning would be a nice addition. The lemon gelato was delicious. Overall we enjoyed the experience, but not sure the amount of food is worth the price.More

We stopped here for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. The decor was very rustic and German themed from the glassware to the staff’s clothing. The beer and pretzel was presented in a unique way. Delicious!

Haven't been here for a couple years. Stopped in for lunch, got a table outside from a very nice host. Had bratwurst, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and cheese soup. It was all superb! We loved the outfits that the staff was wearing. We have a second...home here and we will definitely be back many times.,More

Charming Swiss-Austrian-Alpine atmosphere for dinner, hidden away upstairs chock full of old wood, waitresses in Tracht, It was strange to travel during the COVID pandemic; for safety, we were asked to sit side by side on a quaint comfortable bench so that we wouldn't be...within 6 feet of diners at the next table. Delicious Rosti, Kaiserschmarren. We were surprised to find these authentic dishes in the US.More

Travel to Bavaria without every leaving the US. What a wonderful way to cap off our first trip to Vail! Food and service are top notch and the atmosphere is charming! We started with the cheese fondue with veggies and bread and moved into our...delicious entrees... two had the short ribs which just melt in your mouth. The third in our party enjoyed the salmon. We will definitely return on our next visit to Vail!More

Wonderful meal and service, even in these times of Covid. Make your reservation before you get to Vail because reservations are hard to come by. Pork shank is as good as any I have had in Germany and Austria. Worth the price and that is...hard to say in Vail (See my review of the Swiss Chalet).More

We had an amazing dinner at Almresi restuarant. Everything that we ate was excellent from the pretzle to the kaiser schmeron. The spaetzle and schnitzle and port loin and short ribs were all amazing! Great dinner, great service. Warm and inviting environment.

Good service, good food, good decor and authentic dishes from Austria. I had the tomato soup and the schnitzel and all was great ! The presentation of the dishes is very original. I was expecting for them to offer the goulash, but they don’t offer...it.More

I got married that day and all I wanted was some nice dinner with my family and friends. We were only 5 people, it was so hard getting reservations even over a week in advance anywhere nice in Vail so we ended up choosing Almresi...because my husband worked there before and told me food was amazing. The host was super nice, we got a tiny table in a corner. We shared all the food because earlier we had some appetizers in our reception and we weren’t that hungry. Food overall was amazing. We ordered the käsefondue, (cheese fondue) which like always delicious but I liked the one they have at Alpenrose more because it comes in a hollow bread which it’s amazing. Then we had the BROTZEITBRETT, (its a pretzel with some charcuterie and cheese) very good quality , I would say it is to share between 2/3 people the most. Then we had the SCHWEIZER RÖSTI (rosti potatoe pancake and smoked salmon) this one super good, also if you are gonna share be between 2/3 people the most, the portion is not that big. And then we shared the SCHWEINSHAXE (pork shank) it was really good it pulls apart, it comes with potatoes a d sauerkraut, I would just have liked if the pork shank was a little more roasted/crispy on the outside and the sides on separates plates because the pork when you pull it apart would get mixed with everything. Then we had the SCHMORBRATEN (short rib and spaetzles) I loved this one. We had my favorite wine, Villa Wolf. And they gave us complimentary shots of a rosemary liquor tasted like and a strudel. Overall the dining experience was nice, food amazing, service was good. I definitely recommend this place but for a normal night not a wedding dinner that’s all.More

My wife and I recently went on a river cruise across Germany. We had many great meals at the towns and villages we visited. Since then, we visited Vail Colorado for a romantic get away. We dined one evening at Almrise and enjoyed a several...course meal that rivaled any dining experience along the Rhine and Main rivers. Every course was outstanding and very authentic. The service was very hospitable and transported us back to Europe. Highly recommend this charming restaurant.More

With many choices in Vail, for some reason we decided to go for German food. Since Pepi’s was full, we decided to eat at Almresi. The decor and ambience was great. We were very happy with the menu,....till we got the food. For 30+ we...could do much better in American restaurant. We are very familiar with German food and have chosen what we are use to and like. However to our dismay, food was very poor in quality and taste. We ordered red house wine with out asking for the price, our mistake....15$ per glass, not even good tasting, very sour. When we ask the lovely waitress if this was a house wine, she didn’t know, but answered that it was the least expensive one. After spending over 100$ for two, left with empty filling and stomach. So if one is looking for the decor of the place, this one is for you. However don’t waist your money if you would like to have a good meal. Trust me, this is nothing authentic about their food. Very disappointing.More
