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

Pork shank was outta this world. My wife had the potato pancakes with salmon and they were ridiculously good. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Our server, Ethan, was excellent and went out of his way to make our dinner great. We will be...back.More

Almresi is by far the most authentic European Restaurant I have been in the United States. Usually I never right reviews but after this dinner I even signed up for Tripadvisor to do it! This place is hands down the best restaurant that I have...been to in the Vail/Copper/Breck area. My girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere to have a special dinner and we definitely found it. Let me tell you, the reviews are right. This place is amazing. They have a sophisticated and delicious take on German food served in a fun, light, classy atmosphere. From the minute we walked in, the host and servers were welcoming and friendly. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and colorful. Even the outfits the servers wear, which would be kitschy anywhere else, fit in perfectly here and complete the atmosphere. It is alpine and Colorado-y and refined at the same time. Every table is set a little differently, so your dining experience feels special. Now on to the food and drinks. I started with the glüwein, which was a amazing baked apple mulled wine. My girlfriend ordered the short ribs, and I ordered the Porkshank. The pork shank I got was the best I have ever had. I could literally cut it with my butter knife. From the flavor of the shank to the amazing Sauerkraut and outstanding mashed potatoes it was cooked to perfection! Not to mention, it was the biggest Porkshank I've ever seen. My girlfriend's short ribs were also pull-apart tender. The sides were all generously portioned and delicious. From the Decor to the really amazing food to extreme knowledgeable and friendly Staff, Almresi is just a next level of Hospitality which the other German/Swiss/Austrian restaurants in town could try to learn something from. Come here. You will not be disappointed.More

This place could use a visit. Absolutely disgusted. We went here just for a few drinks over the holidays. After being seated, we ordered 3 drinks and one diet coke. We sat and waited a bit and then our server brings a pretzel to our...table to which we responded, thanks. We assumed this was complimentary, like bread or something but considering some of us were gluten free, we said nothing and just continued with our conversation leaving the pretzel on the table. Our drinks finally arrived(minus the diet coke) to which our server decided to come back with plates. Mind you, we hadn't actually ordered any food and it had been at least 20 min with the pretzel on the table untouched. We asked the server what the plates were for to which he responded: the pretzel. We told him we didn't need plates because we didn't want to eat the pretzel. This is where the biggest issue is. He said oh shoot I brought it to the wrong table, PICKS IT UP AND GIVES IT TO THE TABLE NEXT TO US!!! This is against health code, moral code, and just plain wrong. The server then told them sorry for the wait and asked if it was cold. THEY ATE IT and said yea it's cold and the server offered to bring them another. We told the guys next to us that it had been sitting on our table for 20 min and that it was indeed untouched but this is STILL unacceptable. This is a repulsive business practice. Make sure you watch your food come out of the kitchen and that it didn't come off someone else's table or better yet out of someone else's mouth. My advice, there's much better in vail that are current on their health code practices. Oh and now I should mention, We finally got the diet coke about 10 min before we left after asking for it.More
