    We always attempt to get to Lancelot when we are in the Vail Valley. We often opt for the Sea Bass, this evening we tried to Prime Rib. Absolutely fantastic! The service was perfect and I would recommend this restaurant for a great dining experience!

    I have been to Vail many times and never tried this restaurant. I did on the recommendation of a Vail concierge. The restaurant specialty is prime rib and that is what we all had. The meat was cooked perfectly and everything was absolutely delicious from appetizer to dessert. On the night we went, the meal was not only outstanding, but quite a bargain. They ran an early bird special and if you ordered a bottle of wine with your meal, the entrees were buy one get the lesser priced entree free. There are some very fancy upscale restaurants in Vail, but this one had wonderful food at a resonable price.

    On our 3rd night in Vail, I was pleasantly surprised to find how good the restaurant was all around after not being happy with my meals the first 2 nights out. I've seen this restaurant for YEARS and this year we decided to give it a try. It's a great atmosphere, perfect for couples, families andndwfth young children. We would DEFINITELY come back next year and I am sorry it took us so long to try out this restaurant. Great service, food,o wine and dessert Sorry for the typos. I can't seem to figure out how to delete the letters that does not belong in this review.

    If you're looking for a perfectly-prepared steak or prime rib in Vail, this is the place. Old school but some updated appetizers and salads, also some fish. Yummy!

    Staff is friendly and professional. Menu has a nice range of choices. Food presentation is very good. Prime rib has been a featured item for many years, so I My only negative comment would be that the prime rib was ordered medium rare by two of our party and served at a brown-colored medium.
