This restaurant and bar is always hopping after 3 pm. Great food and drinks. Lots of sun and activity. Familys seem to gravitate to the bar for lunch and snacks after skiing.

We held our wedding reception at the Larkspur over this past Labor day weekend. The staff was organized and so responsive to all our questions and requests over our entire planning process. The set up was absolutely perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised when all of our décor had been perfectly handled by the Larkspur staff - when our helper... More

The Board of Governors on which I sit met for a gala dinner at the Larkspur during a recent visit to Vail, Colorado. My wife and daughter accompanied me on this dinner and we all found it a perfectly marvelous dinner venue! We will certainly visit again!

With its huge terrace and spacious dining and bar areas, Larkspur is a fine choice for large receptions or sit-down dinners. Service was excellent. At the event we attended the hors d'oeuvres were very good, as was the buffet dinner (though the large "sandwiches" on sliced rolls were a bit gloppy and awkward to eat).

We had a private dinner event here. They were fantastic! From bar service to table service to dinner and dessert they performed exceptionally! They are right at the base of Gold Peak. But out of the way but well worth it!

The Larkspur is truly an amazing wedding experience, they offer the entire package. Not only did our wedding turn out perfect from the decor to the food but we had best in class service and accommodations from Isabel Piaggi. Our wedding was June 18th, 2016 at the Larkspur. We had our ceremony outside on the Larkspur lawn. The mountains in... More

My husband and I recently attended an evening event here. It was a buffet (which my husband normally hated) --but it was so well done that it changed his mind. The food was absolutely delicious. Beautifully displayed and full of taste. My husband is a hobby chef and is very picky. He was very impressed with everything. Service was excellent... More

AMAZINGGG!!! We hosted over 60 GoPro Ambassadors at Larkpur and not only was the food delicious but I didn't have to worry about a single thing, we were able to connect to the TV's for AV needs and there was a microphone for speeches. It was an absolute blast!

Had an absolutely amazing lunch at Larkspur. It was a beautiful day so we sat on the patio, which is directly at the base of the hill. Our server, Mansfield was such a character with outstanding recommendations and was extremely attentive. The margarita cocktail was on point and a great way to end a full day of skiing. We shared...

My mother and I went here for lunch on a day we wanted to skip skiing but still be on the slopes! This was the perfect spot, right at the bottom of the golden peak lift! I had the tomato soup and Caesar salad, my mother had truffle fries and the other soup offered that day that I can't remember... More
