Wonderful spot -looking at the ski
slopes. The chief comes out to meet you! Delicious food and great price for the area. My favorite spot in Vail to eat."

We have been to Vail often but
have never gone to Lord Gore. I expected another overpriced menu of mediocre food. We were pleasantly surprided at the quality of the food and service. It is on our list to return next year."

We had a great evening here...the
food was great (try the gnocchi! And great meat including elk and the scallops were delicious). Great service too - our waiter, Chris de Jäger, was one of the best we've experienced in a long time. One of our best meals in Vail, along with Terra Bistro. Enjoy!"

A couple of suggestions that would
get them to where they want to go. The chef and the help are great. Interior decorating: Heavy red drapes framing the windows. Swords and sheilds on the walls Animal heads on the walls Candles on all the tables, and some big ones around the fireplace Crown molding on the ceiling It wouldn't take much but it would get you where you want to go. Also, Heat up the plates you are going to be using beforehand! It is impossible to keep the food hot from the stove to the customer otherwise! Mexican restaurants do it all the time: store the plates you are going to be using to serve on that night in the oven, get them as hot as possible. Use a towel to serve and warn the customer that the plate is hot!"

We were making a last minute
reservation on a Friday night during the ski season and it was hard to get any reservation for larger group. We ended up making a reservation here at Lord Gore as I had been wanting to try it again as I hadn't eaten here in over 15 years. The food and service was remarkably good. The server knew the menu well and gave us great recommendations. Everyone enjoyed their food. The only real issue is the decor leaves little to be desired. The views are huge if you eat early enough or have a full moon to light up the slopes. This is a true hidden gem given that the food and service is the most important. I highly recommend you try it if you never have before. ."

Excellent seclection of
alternative meats,(bison, elk) and salads. Elegantly prepared."
Dined on 3/15/2014
Wonderful for a special ocassion.
A smallish menu done well. The dinners are offered in small and large size. Service was prompt, but not intrusive. Executive chef and line chef both briefly visited. The room is fully carpeted with wood paneling, for a warm and quiet atmosphere. Western view of ski slope, but the room heats up as the sun is setting."

This long time underrated Vail
establishment is out of the main village but worth the short in-town bus ride"
Dined on 3/6/2014
We were very pleased with our
meal. We did have some concerns before dinning that it was in a large hotel. Don't worry! Everything was great. I had the lamb and my wife the bison. She wished she had the larger serving. Wait staff was good. I would go back again."
Dined on 3/6/2014
The Lord Gore was good, but not
great. The restaurant, or really, the dinning room is located in the Manor Vail Lodge, just to the east of Vail Village. The food was good with the elk being the best. The service was also very good. The dinning room is very quiet if you get there early though. The restaurant is really more of a banquet room or private club room in the hotel, rather than a fun to visit restaurant. Tthere are a number of more fun dining options in Vail, Avon and Edwards. There's really very little reason to go here if you're not staying at the lodge."
Dined on 3/1/2014
The decor is tired. The food and
presentation was very ordinary. I was surprised at the rating from open table. It certainly was not a 4 plus star restaurant by any means."
Dined on 2/27/2014
Reminded me of run of the mill
Country Club experience- food was OK, service was non-existent unless asked for (and it was not busy) and decor was nice, just nothing inspired. Did not appear that anyone was running the floor or the servers. We struggled to get our menus, decided to order main course with first drinks as were not sure when server would be back, finally got food, ate, did not see server again until we had to hunt him down to ask for bill."
Dined on 2/20/2014
We ate here 2 out of 5 nights in
Vail. The food is delicious and the wine list is good and well priced. It is like eating in a private club. It is easy to control portion size since the entrees come in two sizes. Service is very attentive. It will now be a regular stop for us when visiting Vail."

Great Food, impeccable service and
an evening to remember!"
Dined on 2/14/2014
Been to Vail many times. Great
experience in intimate setting. Food quality best in town. Should have #1 trip advisor rank."
Dined on 2/8/2014
I have nothing but praise for this
restaurant experience. We were seated before a 2 story window, looking out onto lighted pine trees, with the added bonus of a serendipitous fireworks display for the Chinese New Year. And frankly the fireworks were fitting, because the meal was equally spectacular. Our meals included the pear and beet salads, gnocchi, and lamb; each was outstanding. The service was impeccable, and the chef came out to meet us and ask of our experience. 5 stars for all-around fine dining at a fair price. We'll be back."
Dined on 2/1/2014
This restaurant is a hidden gem in
the Manor Vail resort. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was cozy with the huge fireplace and the waiter, Chris, was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely go there again."
Dined on 1/18/2014
We got there and were seated right
away. The wine list was variable and great. It was a small quiet quaint place with a spectacular view of Vail mountain. The food was absolutely amazing the Gnocchi was the best dish. The food was mountain variety with a selection of many meats. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent, would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some really good mountain food!"
Dined on 1/17/2014
This goes in my top 10 meals to
date! The short ribs were the best I've ever had. Service was perfect. The waiter checked with us on timing for everything so we were not rushed. The chef came out to discuss the dishes and give recommendations. The pictures do not do this justice! It was a beautiful small intimate dining room with great views of the snow cabs working the mountain at night. The apple turnover dessert was incredible. The menu was small which is a good sign that the quality will be high and without a doubt it was. You need to try this place. I'd go back to Vail just to eat here again."
Dined on 1/1/2014
The lamb and bison was absolutely
exceptional. I didn't think anything could get better than that until we ordered the apple tart. It was so delicious. The service was wonderful. A great place for a nice dinner date or special occasion."
Dined on 1/4/2014
I was looking forward to some
great Colorado cuisine (elk, bison, etc) and was not disappointed. The food was wonderful! The restaurant was much smaller than I expected but very warm and intimate (with a roaring fire in the fireplace). We came with our 10-year old son who was exhausted from a day of skiing and they even pulled up a few chairs together so he was able to quietely sleep while the adults indulged. I would highly recommend the foie gras and baked brie to start and each of the elk, bison and lamb were wonderful."
Dined on 1/3/2014
Great place for a romantic
Christmas dinner with my wife, excellent service by our waiter Chris D. Beautiful view out the huge windows facing the mountain, we will be back."

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT
AT ALL, THE FOOD WAS REALLY BAD. I HAVE BEEN COMING TO VAIL FOR MANY YEARS NOW AND LORD GORE USED TO BE A VERY NICE PLACE TO DINE. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD, I REMEMBER THE STAKE TARTAR AND THE CEASAR SALAD THEY USED TO PREPAR ON THE TABLE, THE CHATEAUBRIAND WAS DELICIOUS! EVERYTHING WAS VERY GOOD AND NOW THE FOOD REALLY DISAPPOINTED US."
Dined on 12/28/2013

Plump Pillows of Potato Pasta
Perfection! The gnocchi was my appetizer and I am still dreaming about it. Also loved the elk entrée. The space reminds me of a hunting club. High ceilings, tall windows, wood paneled. We ate at night so the view of the Golden Peak area was limited but I can imagine it's gorgeous with some daylight. Very good service and some reasonably priced wine selections. We would definitely come back."
Dined on 12/14/2013
Our server, Chris de Jager, really
made our dinner at Lord Gore a true treat. He was charming and friendly--just excellent. I was also impressed to be visited by the chef, table-side. The wine special (50% off) was neat--we tried a wine we normally not order. Our pre-dinner cocktails in the Fitz were fun (live music)."

We went to the Lord Gore for
Thanksgiving Dinner this year. The buffet of food was delicious."
Dined on 11/28/2013
Having eaten at Lord Gore before,
we were not disappointed at the service or the meal. The steak tartar was absolutely wonderful and the trout dish very good. We will return!"
