Two of the pizzas for my kids' friends were supposed to come with no pesto, but it did and they didn't eat the pizza. I ordered through the magazine where... More

We ate at Blu's our first night in Vail. Located in East Vail, this little, out of the way, restaurant has a very nice ambience. It is well worth the drive from the center part of town. Both our host and our server were friendly and made us feel at home. The food selection was excellent and our choices were... More

If you are looking for precious, this isn't the place. The food is hearty, savory and ample. What no one in town can touch is the wine list. The value is unbelievable. Most bottles that should be aged are over 5 years old, with plenty over 10 and a few even older. The prices are more than fair. In a... More

Better than average food, service and convience if living or lodging in east Vail. The atmosphere is charming although a bit dated. Not 5 stars but well worth a visit after a long day of skiing or outdoor adventures.

This restaurant is part of the Vail Racquet Club, is a cozy and comfortable place, with great food and service. It's in East Vail, and may be a bit difficult to find, but is worth the effort.
