The food we had for lunch was outstanding. We went back for dinner and we were disappointed. Mediocre meal and unfriendly waitress.

I’ve been going here since the 1990s. The menu has evolved. A bit overrated though everything is good. I like it’s sister behind it (Mountain Standard) even better.

We started with the lobster ravioli and then the salmon and halibut. Both were very good. The drinks where very good and strong. The best place we ate in Vail.
