It was open seating so I chose a spot inside near a window as I thought it would rain outside. The patio views are pretty spectacular. You have a view of the mountain with the ski slopes. It took a while for somebody to come...More

They were a bit understaffed, but did their best. Food was good. The Mole was really tasty, I recommend trying it. The value for Vail was great. You can afford to take the family. Love the patio

The food was very good but members of the staff were talking (negatively) at the bar about some of the customers at the tables outside on the patio. Easy fix for Management.More

Hi PaisleyCo, Glad you were able to join us for Happy Hour. Definitely the best way to end a day of adventuring outdoors. Looking forward to seeing you for Happy Hour again soon.

We came for a late breakfast. The food was very good and everyone was satisfied. The only negative was our waitress seemed somewhat put out that we were there. I’d go again to see if this is a consistent vibe.More

Excellent guacamole....one of the best. Great salsa but if you don't like cilantro beware. Great spot for a brew or three.. outside seating with nice mountain view

Thanks for the review! Did you know that there is a genetic predisposition to liking cilantro? That is why some people love cilantro while others report that it tastes like soap! Glad to hear you enjoyed our guac, outdoor seating, and our salsa.

Delicious carnitas tacos. 2 for $5 at Happy Hour. Lance was our waiter and was charming. Will try brunch this week.

Hi Claudia, Thanks for the review! Have you had a chance to come in for brunch yet?

The avocado tacos are really good. Also, the service and outdoor patio are wonderful. Just like everything else in Vail it was a bit overpriced but at least it was good food.

While in Vail we find it hard to find food quality to match the prices (most tout 4/5 stars and prices reflect that but not the quality and taste of the food). Sabor procides great scenery, friendly staff and well priced food that is tasty....More
