We have come to 8100 three years in a row for both breakfast and dinner. Every time the meals were great, service was attentive, and we never felt rushed.

We were married in Vail and had our wedding dinner at 8100 in 2015. For our first anniversary we returned to 8100 and had another amazing meal. Service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. We will continue to dine at 8100 every year for our anniversary, the staff made us feel special. Thank you!

Since we live in the area and have the opportunity to eat here often, I know that the service can be much better, and usually is. However, our experience this time was terrible. Our server was very friendly but from the time we placed our order to the time it was delivered was about 75 minutes. Her explanation was that the kitchen was overwhelmed with orders. Not really a good excuse for such a high end and large dining room. We were skiing and this was more of a break than desired, but all in all I still like 8100 and will return. My guess is that they were short staffed since the holiday guests were pretty much gone, and the staff was tired. (just a thought)

Made a reservation for NYE. Neither Open Table nor the restaurant's website indicated they would be serving a pre-fixe menu, so we thought the regular menu would be available. Service was incredibly bad. We ordered a bottle of wine and it took 30 minutes before we were served any wine. The first bottle we ordered was not available, but it took the sommelier a long time to locate and serve our next selection. The main entrees were pretty decent, but the soup, salad and first courses were really quite poor and the dessert wasn't any better. The table next to us spent a good 10 minutes complaining about their service, so it must have been pretty rampant. The total for four people with a $65 bottle of wine for the night was $977 (including gratuities). There was a $75 beverage service fee (separate from the regular gratuity) which I have never seen before. Was that $75 fee for our $65 bottle of wine that took 30 minutes to be served? The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek should be embarrassed to charge almost $1,000 for four people for very mediocre food and service - even on a higher cost premium holiday night!

I stayed at the Park Hyatt for a week while vacationing in Beaver Creek. I'm hesitant to give a good rating because my experiences varied each time and I probably ate at this restaurant 5 times during my trip. Sometimes the service was not great, I found the breakfast buffet to be over priced for what it was honestly also not a lot of veg options at any time (breakfast/lunch/dinner). However on Christmas they had a buffet that was excellent but $125 a person - the chef made me a special non diary dessert that was incredible. So while it wasn't always perfect it was pretty good and I would eat there again just expect to wait, be surrounded by noisy children and if your vegetarian/vegan eat a block of tofu and sides.

The prices were almost 50% higher then what we saw in the online menu. For example the elk was $32 online but $54 in the restaurant I believe. The appetizers were $9 each instead of the $5 each online. Was just not happy about the prices almost doubled. Anyone who wants to go there, expect the prices to be twice as much of what you see online.

We were very disappointed in the quality and taste of the food. Three of us for dinner, with all having different appetizers and entrees, and all were poor. The wedge salad was dry with little dressing, the french onion soup had little taste, the Ruby Red trout was a thin portion with skin on, with little flavor. The muscles were small and the broth was uninviting!
Overall, a total bust for a wonderful hotel!!!

Very fresh and flavorful dishes that were reasonably priced. The ruby red trout was fantastic and the server split the order into two beautiful portions, very healthy and tasty! Do try the roasted pepper appetizer, simply delightful! This place gets rambunctious during the ski season, so going in the off season was a treat, very romantic. Our server, Sam, was very personable and delightful! Mahalo from Hawaii

My Filet was charred on the otside and looked like it was cooked medium like I ordered it but was dry. My tea glass and our water glasses were never refilled during the meal. The waiter did not explain what came with the meal and caused us to duplicate our side items.

Overall very disappointed with a restaurant of this quality in an upscale hotel.

We live in Beaver Creek and after several bad experiences at this restaurant thought we would give it another try. Well that was a huge mistake as after waiting outside for a table for 15 minutes and looking around, seeing that most other patrons were looking around for the servers and barely anybody had any food. We decided to move on to another more reliable restaurant in the village. It is a shame that 8100 and their management "just don't get it" it's also a shame that I wasted my time by trying to give this spot another try as we enjoy the out door views. I guess we have finally learned our lesson that they don't train any of their employees properly or give them the proper support and guidance and therefore that's why this restaurant is awful and off our list.

We have a home in Beaver Creek and frequently dine at 8100. The patio has great views and umbrellas to provide shade. It seems that service is always a problem. Waiter saw us sitting at our table and could not get menus or water for 10 minutes. After that, basically had to ask other wait staff for refill of our water. Management no where to be seen. 8100 could be a very good restaurant if it were not for the poor service.

We had the privilege of meeting Chef Christian at this lovely restaurant two years ago while attending a private function that he catered; he is amazingly talented! We are repeat, happy customers over the years and they offer an excellent variety of wonderful drinks, salads, homemade soups and specialty dishes. The lunch buffet, which we enjoy apres-ski, is the best deal…recently the barbecued ribs, chicken, salads, desserts exceeded our expectations. We ate at the outdoor mountainside patio seated on comfy sofas enjoying the beautiful view. Dinner time is family time no matter how late….parents and kids filter in even at 10:00 PM which can be a bit disruptive but we sat at a quieter table a few nights ago by the gas fireplace which was nice; the veal w. pasta entree and the halibut entree were very enjoyable. The service is superb with multiple servers accommodating your every need. The Park Hyatt is conveniently located in the center of the Village and this restaurant is definitely worth a try.

 (Denver)·Dined on March 7, 2015

Beautiful location and comfortable surroundings for sure. Unfortunately, the chef seemed way too dependent on hot sauce or bite as a way to add color to the food. For each of our four meals (3 different entrees) the meat itself was wonderful and well prepared. However, the sauces and the accompanying grilled vegetables were way too spicy for the entree. Admittedly, we are not used to hot or overly spicy food, but nothing in the menu or the waiter's remarks would have led us to suspect how spicy these side items and sauces would be. If you don't like your tomatoes to burn your mouth, our suggestion is to make sure you ask the chef to leave off the hot spices or sauces.

Hotel recommended restaurant so we made a reservation through Open Table. Service was slow and staff somewhat inexperienced for the rating level of 8100. Food was bland and my husbands steak was very tough. We ordered wine by the glass and found out pour was very small (about 1/3 of glass for having to pay $15-$19/glass. Very disappointed. We were very much looking forward to a nice dinner.

This was not our choice but was the only place with availability and close. It's the Park Hyatt restaurant. Had the lamb pasta - pasta was thick and chewy. Wine list (by the glass) could have been larger. Service was good and fast which is what we needed with a kid who had broken his wrist that day on the slopes.

We have dined here at lunch many times in the past. We ate here 3 times on our most recent trip to Beaver Creek. Both the food and service have gone down considerably in quality. Cold food, appetizers and mains served at the same time, incorrect orders all occured during our visits...sort of inexcusable at this price point.

Beware- when we booked this table it did not state that the restaurant had a special pre fixe menu for New Year's for $175. We were actually trying to avoid a this very thing. Ended up getting a call the day before NYE notifying us of pricing/meal, it was too late to make alternate reservation. The meal was just fine but definitely not special. You could not see the fireworks from the location, it was freezing in the restaurant due to people running in & out all night. Suggestion, try this spot on a regular evening for a comfortable easy meal.

We've dined here many times and had pleasant experiences. Today was horrific, from the check in at the hostess station taking 15 minutes to the awful, awful, awful service to the mediocre food. My suggestions: when someone doesn't have a reservation do not talk to them for ten plus minutes while a gigantic line is forming at the hostess station. Also, this is a resort town that has the same pattern every year of high traffic over the winter holidays, be ready for it. It took over 20 minutes to get water for the table and over 30 minutes to get a beer. Yesterday may have been our last visit to 8100.

It was disappointing .. i was looking for layers of cake with cream cheese frosting in between .. what i got was a flat piece of cake with no frosting .. i would have sent it back but i got it to go .. i am sure that the other desserts on the menu are amazing .. we will dine at the 8100 again.

We had dinner at the 8100 and the restaurant lives up to Hyatt's and Beaver Creek's reputation for dining excellence. The wine menu is extensive. The ambiance in the restaurant was cozy with a fire place in the center of the dining room. The appetizers were very good including fresh oysters from Washington State. The entrees were prepared and presented in a manner consistent with the fine quality dining experience you would expect.

The six employees standing at the host stand when we checked in were all confused and took several minutes to seat us even though the restaurant was empty. Our waiter was in the weeds all night. He forgot to put in our main courses so our food took forever. Once the food arrived, it was very good. The waiter never offered dessert or coffee. It's unacceptable considering the cost. It does not take a lot to provide good service. Is the waiter trained? There were 3 suit-managers walking around but they never touched our table. Why are they being paid? If I were the chef, I would strangle the front house staff as they make the chef look really bad.

This is a great restaurant if you want a nice dinner, but you're a bit tired from the day's activities. It has a beautiful contemporary bar at the base of the mountain.

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed our entire meal. We happened to be dining during Restaurant Week and were able to enjoy a 3 course meal. Each course was unique, excellently prepared, and had a great combination of flavors and textures. Would definitely return. Plus the view is amazing. I recommend arriving early and enjoying a drink on the patio looking on Beaver Creek Mountain.
