    This is a must-do when dining in the Vail Valley. It is our very favorite restaurant there! Although it is not inexpensive, the presentations of dishes are gorgeous, the portions are large, the service is very friendly and attentive, and it is simply an extremely pleasant experience. We can't wait to go back!

    The atmosphere is relaxed. Piano music from the bar floated in through the dining room. The service was patient and attentive. The food was outstanding. The lamb was moist and tender and nearly fell off the bone - and I never knew a pork chop could taste so good.

    From the understated elegance of the dining room, to the efficient and professional staff, our evening at GMG was wonderful. All appetizers were expertly executed and simply amazing. A special highlight was the warm lobster mascarpone cheese "stack". Entrees were also fantastic. The venison was expertly prepared and was paired beautifully with home-made sausage. Both orders of beef tenderloin were fork-tender and were cooked perfectly. The only disappointment of the evening was the bread pudding we shared for dessert. It's not that it was bad, it's just that I make far better bread pudding than than that and I'm not a pastry chef. Finally, special recognition should go to the expansive wine list and the extremely helpful som

THE TASTE WAS JUST AS FISHY. ALTHOUGH THE SCALLOPS WERE REMOVED FROM THE BILL, I FIND THIS TYPE OF FAILURE TO BE UNACCEPTABLE FOR A RESTAURANT OF THIS CATEGORY.

    This restaurant was highly touted but we were disappointed with our dinner experience. The host was far from welcoming when we arrived for our reservation. Once seated, the service was slower than expected. The soup of the day was quite bland, but better after salted/peppered. The beef steak my husband ordered was good, however, the rack of lamb recommended by the waitress was a poor choice. It was a very fatty piece of meat. When asked by the waitress how our dinner was, we brought this to her attention. She commented that she would "let the kitchen know". No apolgy. We never heard another thing about it. This restaurant performed far below our expectations.

    The Grouse Mountain Grill has consistently great fine dining in Beaver Creek. The service is excellent, and the food is always good. The location in the Pines Lodge is a little bit out of the way, but well worth the trip. During the busy 2008 holiday season, our family enjoyed an excellent lamb shank special, with meat that practically fell right off the bone. We will be returning to the Grouse Mountain Grill.

    Very special Thanksgiving dinner. The adults liked it very much, but a little too different for young kids. The turkey was a hit however. Maybe would suggest making sure there is enough kid friendly food to keep them calm while we are enjoying our wonderful meals.

    GMGrill has an amazing view over all of Beaver Creek (BC) Villiage and the ski mountain, and is always ranked number 1 or 2 in BC. Tony the host is the best, giving the most pleasant and personal service one ever wanted. The pre-6pm special was unbelievable, as we got a 20oz steak with app and dessert for under $30, we would have shared one if we knew it would have been that big! The outdoors is georgeous, but it happen to rain the night we were there, so it had a romantic mist over the Villiage. I have eaten there many times over the past 10 years, and will go back every chance I can.

    Service was excellent. From hostess, somelier,to waiter all were welcoming and knowledgeable. We were a group of 6 (2 kids). Would have preferrred not to sit in the bar but perhaps that's where they put larger groups. Comments on the food: 2 diners had the long bean salad with yuzu sauce, said it was bland. The salad with blue cheese and the asparagus soup were perfection. The Duck entree was ordered by 2 diners. One said it was one of the best they've had but another said it was tasty but not warm enough. Venison 2 ways, the sausage was too dry. My Veal dish was good but lacked excitement. Definitely appreciate the kids menu. Having a view is a plus. Piano player was a nice touch.
