We have gone here several times since its close to our home but even if it wasn't we would still go over. The outdoor area by the hugh fire pit is wonderful and the service is great.

Fantastic service, excellent food
This location is a bit west of the main part of Vail, but still on the right side of the freeway. The restaurant is inside of a resort (Vail Cascade) but it feels like a free-standing restaurant. It is actually beneficial because just outside of the restaurant is a great cocktail spot in front of a huge fireplace where you could have a drink before sitting down. The pork shank was fall-off-the-bone tender and made unique with a dollop of fall-friendly cheese, peppers and herbs. The fish dishes were also outstanding, done to order and to perfection. Don't miss the foccacia appetizer with homemade pear preserves. An exceptional value was the $33 for 3 prix fixe menu -- one appetizer, one main course, and either a salad or dessert.

Best service of my life
I spent a night in Vail with my girlfriend for her birthday at the hotel that houses this restaurant. Our server Ivan was incredible. Not only did he comp her entire meal ($50 lamb chop plate), he brought us free champagne, and a piece of chocolate cake on the house. I couldn't believe it. The food and wine were also excellent but the real star here was our server Ivan.
