    Balata has the BEST view in the valley! The service is very attentive......not sure what to say about the food. Average.........Everyone enjoyed their dinner but it is the lovely deck and spectacular views that made our evening! Not much on the wine list and we ended up ordering from the Pub Menu....good ribs and fish and chips. Too....Balata is part of a country club and has a fun view of the golf course.

    We found Balalta as delightful as ever. This is a private country club with a great restaurant that is open to the public. They make all of their guests feel like members, and that is special. The food is excellent, servcie responsive and polite, and moderatly priced for the Vail Valley. I would actually say it is a bargain. We will be back every time we are in Vail.
    Special Features:
    fit for foodies, great for outdoor dining, neighborhood gem, romantic, special occasion, scenic view, great for lunch, hot spot
