“Beautiful Restaurant, Great Food, Solid Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Had a delightful dinner here. Started with the waiter suggesting and having us sample a few wines by the glass. Then we moved on to a really unique Scallop crude with a vanilla brûlée and jalapeño slices. Totally unique, and delicious.

The fried olive appetizer was kind of one note. The Caesar salads were fresh and nice, but not memorable.

The stars were the entrees. The lobster tail with green chile, basil butter, and gnocchi was fabulous. The gnocchi had an amazing roasted garlic, earthy taste and was simply fantastic. The espresso lamb was cooked perfectly, and the sweet potato dumplings were great. The broccolini was cut very small and. I felt detracted from an otherwise superb dish. That being said, it was still excellent. And the potato flatbread with buratta, truffle oil, and Rosemary was huge and really tasty.

Too full for desert, but the meal was great.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

We started out by ordering a wine they were out of and the waiter (without us asking) expertly suggested another one which was very good at the appropriate price point. The meal continued well with an appetizer of croquettes and consistently good service. For entrees my wife had the espresso lamb which was excellent and I had the gnocchi and lobster. The lobster wasn't particularly flavorful and was slightly tough but was still good and the homemade gnocchi was great. For dessert we had the pot de crème which came somewhat deconstructed with a great presentation and flavor. Prices were very reasonable for what you received (and given that it’s Vail). Atmosphere was very nice with an attractive wine cellar in the middle of the restaurant that you could watch the staff climb up to get bottles.

“Great atmosphere, poor service and food value”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere was more what u would expect in Manhattan instead of vail but nice for something different. We waited forever to get a drink. The food, even for tapas, was skimpy for the price. While the salmon cudo was tasty the lobster entree was chewy and tasteless. Would not recommend!

“Better than the rating would indicate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

I was staying at the sebastian (where this is located) and ate here one night in January. It was much better than I expected and better than many of the other meals I had when I was in town for 3 weeks. The risotto was excellent and my steak was perfect. I quite like the atmosphere, but the only downside is that although I had booked as a single, I was directed to the bar. This wasn't a problem in the end as the place was pretty empty, but it would have been if the place had been full. Still - it didn't stop me giving it one of my rare 5 stars.
