Description: From the creators of the legendary Sweet Basil in Vail Colorado, comes a fresh, innovative new restaurant. Aptly named Mountain Standard, this rustic and relaxed tavern aims to set a new standard in the Vail valley by using an ancient form of cooking.The majority of Mountain Standard’s menu is prepared via the most primal cooking method: over an open and live wood fire. The only restaurant in the valley to devote themselves to this age-old way of cooking, the food at this exciting new restaurant has rustic, bold and honest flavors, focusing on the purest ingredients in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond.Service, like the cuisine, has that perfect balance of providing a first class dining experience with a more casual vibe. There is no smoke and mirrors here – no fuss – just simple, honest, from the heart service and cooking. The beauty of the creek side location is mirrored by the high energy vibe of this dynamic restaurant.It is this energy, outstanding service, and hand crafted food that enables Mountain Standard to offer a truly unique dining experience, approachable and enjoyable to everyone.

Great dinner at Mountain Standard. The sea scallops were great. Service was very good. Nice selection of beer and wine.

We ate lunch here today and it was so delicious I couldn't wait to give them a great review. The service was great and the food was even better. We had the olives, grilled octopus and onion rings as our appetizers, the kale and Caesar salad for our entrees and split the pecan tart for dessert. All were so delicious that our plates were completely clean. Will definitely return... Maybe tomorrow.

We were looking forward to eating here....but wow we blinked and missed it. Sat down starters arrived in about a minute and before they were even finished they were putting the entrees in front of us....so here we are with a nice table over looking the street a bottle of wine and out in less than an hour. Kids screaming and carrying on having their own tables.Utter bedlam. Food may have been nice but who would know need to have time to enjoy it!!!
