Reviewed December 3, 2013

We ate several items from their tasters menu and were definitely not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed every item that came out. We plan to go back next time we're in Vail.

“Sweet Basil lives up to the reviews”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Our best meal in Vail by far. We had dinner at this restaurant and both food and service were very good. Great kids menu too with real food entrees, not your typical kid options. Portions were small but sufficient and allowed room for really nice deserts. Overall a great restaurant in Vail that does live up to all the reviews!

“Couples dining experience. ”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

The Concierge at the Ritz recommended this restaurant for a romantic dinner. My husband and I were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was exemplary. For appetizers, we had a Caesar salad and the tuna sashimi. For entrees, we had the lamb and scallops. All the dishes were tastefully presented and cooked perfectly. I would recommend calling ahead for reservations, because this restaurant is popular amongst the locals as well.
