Diner Reviews
  • "Nothing special - menu is limited - but almost like a Denny's - not at all like Vail"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our visit to Bistro Fourteen. The restaurant was not too busy when we were seated and we got a window seat to watch the sunset while we ate. Service was great and prices were better than any place I've been to in Vail with similar quality food. If you go during one of their special nights, you can really get a good bargain. We really enjoyed our visit and plan to go back again the next time we're in Vail."

  • "Friendly service. Nacho starter very good. Problem arises when you tried to 'exotic up' otherwise good food. Trout main had so much flavoring it no longer tasted of trout. Indeed it was inedible, as was some rice looking accompaniment. Keep it simple. You are trying too hard. Both meals returned uneaten. Deserts disappointing too, once again trying to be 'haute cuisine' in little taster tubs. Out of 4 tables nearby, 3 tables sent something back to the kitchen. The waitresses standard catchphrase was ' what can I do to make this better' Final irk was there was a special on this night. ie one entree course free. Gratuity automatically included at 18% , PLUS gratuity on the free entree, brought gratuity to 25% of the bill."

  • "Fun evening snowshoeing from the top of Gondola 1 over to the top of the Lionshead Gondola for dinner at Bistro 14. The tuna is super!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "It's got really good food, at reasonable prices (for Vail!), and you can bring your kids. the service is attentive like a fancy place, but the overall vibe is more casual."

  • "Views, Views, Views!, We had a late dinner not very crowded, as we were seated and started on our first cocktail (great by the way) several families came in, yes with kids (thankfully they were all very well behaved, yet still were being kids) we were seated somewhat close but were still unaffected by their presence. Our server (an English woman) was on her game, very charming (of course she's English) knew her stuff, checked on us etc. Food was decent flavourfull, somewhat expected, healthy portions, (don't get the out the Restaurant bathroom thing) will definitely go back when next in Vail. Money well spent. Hope you think so too. Cheers."

  • "We ate lunch there twice in the last week. The ambience is good, the wait staff are on the ball. The first time we did not have a reservation but were lucky to get a table. We had a reservation the second time. I would recommend getting a reservation early in the morning or the day before. The food was prepared nicely and was quite good. Tendency is to linger and avoid more skiing as the location is comfortable. Deserts were consumed on the second visit and were decadent."

  • "Bistro Fourteen has a unique location, on top of Lift One at Vail Mountain. We took the (enclosed) gondola in time to arrive just prior to sunset and took some great photos outdoors before heading inside. Our server was excellent - personable and knowledgable with just the right amount of humor and good natured kidding with our group. Their entrees, especially the trout and the lamb, were outstanding and well presented and their mini desserts were delicious!! Gondola is the only means of transportation and makes it a very special mountaintop experience."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "My low score for service was due to the fact that out of 8 diners in our party, one was left without food until the rest of us had finished half their meal. Unacceptable in my opinion. The food (once delivered) was delicious. Fun location."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "The gondola ride up while the sun was setting was just beautiful! Dinner was delicious and the prices are quite reasonable for eating at the top of the mountain."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "For a mountaintop restaurant at the top of a ski lift, the food was outstanding. Made a reservation for the family for convenience as we had an aggressive agenda trying to do a lot on the mountain in only a few days and was very happy with the result. (There is a tubing hill, zip line and snowmobiling course right next to the ski lift as well.) I hesitantly ordered the tuna which was sushi quality and absolutely delicious. They gave our 3 kids (9,7,3) some free apps and desert and all our food was good. Recommended if you want to maximize time having fun on the mountain rather than heading back to town, and yet still get a gourmet meal."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was EXCELLENT. The rack of lamb was as good as I have had anywhere and my wife enjoyed her choice which was sesame crusted tuna. I am not normally a desert eater but couldn't resist the offering."

  • "We were in town for Valentines weekend and wanted to try some place new and exciting. We had a great time taking the gondola up, enjoyed the great views. We were sat a little earlier than our reservation; it was about 10 minutes before the waiter came over to us. He swapped our wines, took our dinner order and then never came back. Three other waiters had to help us get more water, the dessert menu, and the check. When we told the hostess she said sorry but he has a lot of big tops (he had two). Overall the food was fantastic, but the service was not at all impressive."

  • "Food was mediocre at best. Caesar salad was overdressed and lettuce was flat. Ordered kids chicken fingers and asked of they were seasoned and was told no. They came out and not only was it all bread and no chicken, there were huge black pepper flakes throughout the breading. Two kids meals $20 and my kids wouldn't touch them. Very disappointing for Vail."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were pleasantly surprised with quality of food. There were 6 of us and we enjoyed every single dish. Our server was just great and made us feel at home. We were at Bistro Fourteen for dinner and lunch and they were both fantastic."

  • "We chose the 14 because there was no overpriced prixe fixe menu on V Day and it had availability. The hostess was all smiles, waitress Devlin was not.The meal peaked at the soup du jour. We order pork belly & Ahi app. Ahi was delicious but two tiny slices inadequate, the pork belly was weak, more resembled BBQ pork slices, I told the waitress this is not Pork Belly and she replied " Well it is just bacon" REALLY? My wife ordered soup n Duck salad, myself Chick Pot Pie. In a moment dinner was served....Guys, at least pretend you made it fresh!. Soup excellent Duck salad bowl drowning in dressing,wilty lettuce, 0 Prezo. CPP their sig dish peaked at Prezo in porcelain dish. Chick & veg gravy with puff pastry top. V.R. should be embarrassed."

  • "We were skiing and our friends weren't.. they took an enjoyable bahn ride to the top of the mountain where we had met them for a fantastic lunch with gorgeous scenery at the top of Vail! Just doesn't get more relaxing."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Although not really a secret, Bistro Fourteen is the best deal on Vail mountain for lunch. Reasonable prices (in fact even cheaper than cafeteria prices for kids) and sit-down service plus the ability to reserve a table, make this our family go-to lunch place. The food is also reliably excellent. My only reservation in writing this review is that it might be harder to get into for lunch!"

  • "Casual and relaxing atmosphere. Great for kids as well. Good meal after a few hours at Adventure Ride."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Our evening was wonderful. I do think a little extra thought could go in to warming the atmosphere of the place up a little bit. A little dim lights would be nice along with maybe some soft music playing to cut the conversation noise a bit. I just think the food id wonderful for the price. I just think the interior needs a little beefing up to vail standards."

  • "We eat at bistro 14 each year on our annual ski trip to vail. It is a perfect spot for lunch before your last run. While the food is good, it was not as good as we remembered. The burger was good but not outstanding. The starter nachos needed a big more heat (ask for jalapeños). The chicken pot pie and onion soup are still fabulous. The service is fast and friendly. Worth a lunch while your on the mountain. You won't be disappointed."

  • "This is a great place to take a break from snowboarding to grab a nice lunch. The menu is great for gluten free people too. That have a wide selection of choices so nobody will go hungry. I wouldn't recommend eating here for dinner as there are many more restaurants I prefer down the mountain. Overal I would try this place again!"

  • "Unpretentious sit-down dining on the slopes of Vail Mountain. Great menu, reasonable pricing and fabulous service from Sid."

  • "Excellent staff ! Great food! Really enjoyed ourselves. Fun taking the gondola up the mountain for dinner! Would definitely recommend"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "I expected more than just on mountain dining. Yes better than the usual cafeteria style food but far from anything that i would return for."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Outstanding food, excellent service, great view, and reasonably priced. Have been to all what Vail can offer, and can highly recommend this one."

  • "This is at the top of the Vail gondola. You do pay to ride up but it's a beautiful view and they give you dining coupons to use for dinner or drinks at the top. Food is good, not too pricey."
    Dined on 8/16/2013
  • "Actually, due to the on-line pictures, I thought 14 was the more elegant restaurant upstairs. After all table clothes and candles eludes to something more than a casual bistrl. If I had wanted a bistro I would have rated this place higher. With that being said, our wait person was excellent and she was Julie on the spot for all our needs! Guess that is how they are tought down under in Melbourne !"

  • "This is a great restaurant at the top of the Eagle Bahn gondola at Vail Ski Area. Whether you want to take a break from skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, it would be great place to eat on the mountain. Even better is taking a ride back up the mountain following your activities for a nice relaxing or romantic dinner. Great food, good wine list are a real plus. One note, you do need a lift ticket to get there. Also, it's a little cooler than down in Vail so bring a jacket."

  • "We chose Bistro 14 because we had out of town guests who we wanted to show the view, and we needed a restaurant that was handicap accessible. Unfortunately, our table had just about no view. The indoor seating might as well be anywhere. Very strange. The out-of-towners still enjoyed the novelty of riding the gondola to lunch. Our waitress was very good, and the food was very good--for the casual restaurant that it is. I had the flank steak sandwich, and it was excellent."

  • "We did have a group of 10...but for as expensive as it was and as few people were in the place, expected quicker food service. At times our waitress was MIA..? We never had enough water for the number of people in our group :/. The food..I had the trout and would suggest that to anyone, but The risotto...was sticky instead of creamy. My sons chicken and nieces....had a film on it, like it had been sitting under a heat lamp. The pork chops were done to perfection, and the kids food was great...love the little appetizer for them and desert. stunning views and great pictures area! Not sure if we would eat there again, but at least we had great company...my family from Wisconsin :)"

  • "If your looking for cheaper fare, this would be it. Reasonably priced for Vail mountain. Food was a bit substandard - trout was good, but potatoes were undercooked. The Monte Cristo was not actually a Monte Cristo - it didn't appear to have been deep fried, just served on Texas toast. Felt a bit ripped off after the meal."

  • "Set atop Vail, this place is a great spot to unwind after a day of family fun on the slopes. We were there on a Thursday night and they have a great special - Two 3-course meals for $50 and kids got there own for $10. For Vail and the view, it was a deal. Food was of great quality. Wait staff was hustling all night and service was timely. However, I thought that a busser or two would help keep the plates from piling up on the tables. Dining room had lots of windows, so the view was available from just about every table. Dinner time was good for watching the sunset. Family friendly, so kids and noise level were high. Also look into other nights for specials. Monday was a 2-for-1 night i think."

  • "Great spot - much less expensive than other Vail "cafeteria style" restaurants, with full sit-down service, ability to make reservations and much better food. Excellent kids menus too ($10 for 3 courses)."

  • "We decided to dine here for a change of pace from Vail village. Made a reservation, and got there with no trouble even though you need to take the gondola up (beautiful, quiet ride). Wait staff was efficient and friendly. Food was very good and reasonably priced for the area. Would definitely go back!"

  • "Sydney was our waiter. He is fabulous!! We felt very well attended. There was a very relaxed and personal air to the place. The food was excellent and elegant - Beautifully presented. We had trout, onion soup & salad - then a toffee Carmel tart for dessert. Sydney helped us feel welcome as if we were having a fine dinner in the home of a gracious friend. Other than the fact that we had on our ski pants and our snowshoes were stacked against the wall, it felt like a very elegant evening out. I highly recommend this restaurant and staff."
