    This was our second family dinner at Grouse Mountain Grill and it dd not disappoint. We all ordered different appetizers and main dishes. All were excellent. But, most notable were the desserts. Apparently they have a new pastry chef and he/she delivers top quality. We had the apple bread pudding, flour-less chocolate cake, and the carrot cake. All were very impressive. The ice cream that came with them was also among the best I have had. This is a pricey restaurant, but it delivers the goods; worth going if you can afford it.

    We are from NYC, and have high eating standards, and we enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was even better. Smart though extensive wine list that would make anyone happy, and we really enjoyed our meal, esp the appetizers - lobster marscapone, kale salad. We were only in vail for a couple days, and were so impressed by the excellent food that we had the whole vacation.

    From the moment we sat down until we left, everything was pure perfection. The waiters were very attentive and friendly, made great recommendations. The food was outstanding, my favorite was the lobster & mascarpone appetizer. They provided a delicious children's menu. The atmosphere was very pleasant. We definitely come back next year.

  • Worst Dining Experience EVER!
    JBNMD
    Dined on 2/13/2014
    We have dined most everywhere at Beaver Creek and the Vail Valley over 23 years, including a number of times at Grouse Mountain Grill. This was the worst dining experience EVER! The food was terrible: lobster marscapone was gloppy and tasted like canned crab mixed with melted ricotta. The beet salad was bitter and tasteless. The eggplant agnoletti was inedible -- salted to Dead Sea levels and unattractive beyond belief. The "crispy" duck breast -- the chef's favorite -- was so tough and fibrous, I could barely cut it. The meat was coated with soft fat that easily could have been crisped on an infrared burner, but wasn't, making the eating experience even worse. Fair service at a restaurant that is easily the most expensive in Beaver Creek.

    The grill always manages to find an interesting way to refine a classic dish or present a menu item that is so intriguing you can't help but order it. The menu ranges from Colorado specials from local sources of Elk, bison, and trout to Classic European. It is a must stop and dine site in the Beaver Creek area and worth a diversion if need be!

    the place is missing something, it looks good but not like a AAA first class place, and the food is not good at all, my lamb was dry and cold, is an average place but not an outstanding, is not worth taking the car out to go. I think the chef who originally designed the plates is no longer working there or they do not review the quality anymore. I dont know but I wont be coming again.

    On a very snowy night we took the restaurant shuttle and then dial-a-coach to The Pines which is where the restaurant is. The food was superb as was the service.

    Grouse Mountain Grill is expensive and worth every penny. After being warmly greeted, we were shown to a romantic window table. When we asked for entree suggestions our terrific waiter, Elliot, guided us to an exceptional meal. Two types of fabulous freshly baked bread and three types of butter accompany every meal. I adored my beef and my husband had their famous pretzel covered park chops- absolutely amazing. I can unreservedly recommend this place!

    This is our favorite restaurant in Beaver Creek! The service is wonderful and the food fabulous. The food is presented beautifully and is delicious. We had the duck breast and the pork chop from the menu. Our entrees were thoroughly enjoyed. We shared the chocolate layer cake, which was decadent and a marshmallow ice cream, which was also delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. The wine and food are somewhat pricey, but worth it! We hope you try the Grouse Mountain Grill when you visit the area!

I can't remember the last time I've left a restaurant without being able to think of a single aspect or plate that could have been improved. I will work hard in life to afford a return visit.

    We used to frequent Grouse Mtn. Grill 3-4 times a year when in Vail. With our favorite manager leaving and menu changes eliminating some of our favorite dishes, we had not been in at least a year. Since our last visit the dining room underwent a major renovation creating a much warmer dining area, but it is very loud and has a "hotel restaurant" feel rather than the unique (but chilly) former ambiance. The food was great with our party choosing a variety of dishes such as duck, rabbit, elk and trout that were all beautiful in flavor and appearance. The wine list was very pricy though, and the sommelier made suggestions priced well beyond what we told him that we wanted to spend. Overall it was a pleasant evening, but very pricy!

    While most restaurants in Beaver Creek have become lazy and content to serve mediocre food due to the massive amount of tourist, there are still a few really good ones. Grouse Mountain Grill is one them. Probably the best in BC. Nice touch with the wine list on an ipad. Dinner was fantastic, start to finish. Great atmosphere and I really enjoyed having desert in the bar while listening to not overly loud live music. Had a great time!

    Very welcoming and professional staff. They paid attention to every detail but it was still a very relaxed experience. For starters, the Cavatelli with regional meat was wonderful and they had excellent oysters with a tangy light dip. Our party of eight gave me an opportunity to sample several entrees. Chef has outstanding sense of how to cook meat and fish--all cooked to perfection with terrific rubs and sauces. I would also say the desert chef is also very talented. They have a super cool iPad app for their expansive wine list, but call over the Somalia unless you are an expert. He was very patient and recommended excellent wine pairings.
