Sweet Basil is in the top five restaurants in Vail--depending on your taste, in the same league as Left Bank and Kelly Liken (and far better than Terra Bistro and La Tour).
Food: Excellent. Every appetizer and entree was seasoned and presented properly. Even minor details (hot and cold plates) were attended to.
Service: Outstanding. Obviously the owners/managers pay very close attention to the staff and their training. Our server knew the menu and the details of every item--down to how it was seasoned.
Wine: Outstanding. Great selection (magnum of 2003 Lynch Bages is hard to find at a decent price) and pricing. Recognizable labels across all price ranges.
Ambience: They make you feel welcome in a bustling and fun environment. I was concerned when they opened another restaurant down stairs--but handled well. This place has been in Vail for years, but presents very fresh and clean.
General: One of my favorites in the US--and one of the best in Vail.
