Very busy on a Friday night. However, they were able to accommodate us. The wine and dinners were absolutely wonderful. The waitstaff was outstanding. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. Definitely a must to come to.

Situated in Lionshead and near parking this is the place to go for seafood in the Vail area. Nice selection of appetizers, ceviche was a special for the evening and big enough to feed several.fine salads and multiple choices for main courses. They offer many varieties of fresh fish, grilled or baked, excellent crab claws and lobster, and a selection... More

This is a very fresh and bright little restaurant in Lionshead Village in Vail. It was very clean and everyone we interacted with was friendly. We each had various things on the menu that were all tasty and enjoyable. I had a salad and a large bowl of their homemade Manhattan clam chowder. The wine list is a nice compliment... More

Very much enjoyed eating here. The food was fresh and good, the waiter was pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere is vibrant but noisy. It is an expensive restaurant.

High quality food, and service is on point. Special thanks to Bill and Chelsea. Tried bay scallop ceviche, calamari, halibut, and jambalaya. All delcious. Only down side is the very high cost.

Fresh seafood! King crab and tuna were incredible! The staff was great and service was exactly what to expect from a top tier restaurant. Sit at the bar and get to know the bartender for local knowledge.

Cuisine is one of the better offerings here in Liionshead. Good for a quaint date night atmosphere. Nicer attire than the usual athletic wear which is fine in many places around here. Enjoy!

Well... Food in Vail is not as good as the ski or the great outdoor activities during summer... And honestly I wonder why... This is probably one of the best restaurants in the villages of both Vail and Lionshead, but I believe it could be much better. The seafood is nice, the preparation was ok. My seafood pasta came with... More

After a recent trip to Vail, I wondered if this might be the excuse for poor service and mediocre food. Although overall, the seafood was good. (My scallops were cooked to perfection.) However, I have serious concerns about a white-table cloth establishment claiming to be upper crust (pricey), when there are issues of cleanliness (chairs, menus, etc.) and the wait... More

Ate here during our latest trip out here and enjoyed it. The service was great and so was the food. We had the grilled ruby trout with crispy smashed potatoes and the daily fresh vegetables. The sand pie dessert is amazing. It's a little pricey but then again you are in Vail.

Thank Steve B
