Atwater on Gore Creek - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We had a delicious and wonderful dining experience. It started out right with free valet parking and then we were seated at a table with a wonderful view. The service was exceptional, and we really appreciated all the suggestions. The food was fresh, well prepared, and delicious. This turned out to be a memorable dinner for me and my family. We will be back!
An interesting menu ranging from complex to quick and easy items including some pizzas. You can find something for everyone. Made a big deal about their Kobe steak so I gave it a try, but thought it was undistinguished and certainly less tasty than a good rib-eye or strip steak. Service was a bit slow and waiter seemed to be handling too many table to keep up.
There's a few different areas to sit in. Up front which is a bit noisy from the bar with booths but the music was good. Then there's a room off to the side, quieter a bit more intimate. And then the larger room in the back. We were up front with a reservation but never requested a particular place. When we were seated we asked to be in other rooms but they declined, even with open tables and a reservation from this site. Therefore the ambiance wasn't as nice as I would have liked for the cost.
The food at Atwater is consistenly delicious but the service has varied greatly. The service during our most recent visit needed improvement! The server seemed so hurried that she did not actually listen to what was being ordered so one drink and one dinner had to be sent back because she got the order wrong. Once dinner was served the server disappeared. We had to grab another server and ask for our bill and to go containers.
We have dined here in the past. There have been quite a few menu changes over the years. The food is good with a variety of styles and flavors. My husband had the salmon which was served with polenta. The polenta was rather hard. I had a butternut squash spinach salad for an entree which was a nice mixture of tastes and texture. Another in our party had the pork shank and another the strip steak. Everything was well prepared. Our service was alright, but considering that the restaurant was almost empty, it was not impressive. There is an extensive beer list. When asked if the tap list above the bar was accurate, our waitress said it was. After we placed our drink order, she said that the beer we wanted wasn't on tap. We were never offered dessert. You can take a shuttle to the restaurant from Lionshead Village that will take you to the Cascade resort.
Very large space, close parking free (unusual for Vail). Not very busy so we were a little concerned when we were seated, but food was surprisingly good. Sandwiches and apps reasonably priced, entrees a little pricey but prepared as we ordered it, sauce and sides very good, not just generic hotel fare. Would be a good place if you had a family where some wanted basic and some wanted a more upscale meal.
Service was outstanding, very knowledgeable about the menu and additional specials, very kid friendly as well. Food was very good, kids Mac and cheese was homemade, not that boxed stuff you get at some restaurants. I ordered the Kobe beef, very tasty and cooked to my liking.
Went here with my girlfriend on our little get away and everything about it was amazing! Especially their Colorado Kobe. The server was very professional and helpful with picking out items since this was my girlfriend and my first time there. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody and I will definitely go back myself.
Dined here our first night at Vail Cascade. Traditional pub food - burgers, sandwiches, pizza. Limited items were able to be used on the 3 course dinner for $39 so that we did not utilize that option. The burger was good. Ate here for a late breakfast the following morning. The staff couldn't wait to close up. I had to ask for some of the buffet items to be replenished.
Our waiter kept disappearing on us meaning that we waited over an hour for each course and we finally had to order our included dessert course with the hostess. There was a soccer tournament going on near the hotel so I can't blame them too much but it was still a little annoying having little kids running around in swim suits while we're trying to have a nice dinner, and the staff did nothing to stop them.
Food was outstanding, but no rolls/bread included (had to pay for focaccia bread, which was good). We arrived early on a Monday evening, so this may be why the restaurant was fairly empty. Sat outside by the flowing Gore Creek (great sounds) and large fire pits (terrific ambience). Received personalized service and food was excellent. The very large bar area (far enough away not to hear) was really hopping. We've heard a developer has recently bought this upscale resort in Vail Cascade Village and is planning major renovations. Hope they don't change the menu!
Went for an anniversary dinner, they treated us like royalty. From a Happy Anniversary glass of champagne on the house, to the chef coming out from the kitchen to offer some vegan specialties to my wife, to perfect timing on table visits to make sure everything was OK. Food was lovely and delicious, but the overall experience was hard to beat. The ambiance would be softened with a few flowers at the table, but that's a tiny quibble. They even brought us a big plate of sorbet (again, on the house) for dessert.
Service was polite but inattentive. The food was really poor. Charcuterie plate included hard salami you could buy at any super market deli. My kids would have loved it, but I was looking for something a bit more upscale. I had the beef ribs. Finding meat on the boneswas a considerable challenge. The slaw was tasteless. The greens so sour that they really weren't edible. Mac and cheese was several steps up from Kraft dinner and the best thing on the plate by default.
My wife had the Kobe steak. It was cooked appropriately but accompanied by vegetables that had the consistency marking previously frozen.
It was the most expensive terrible meal I've had.
Located in vail cascade resort. Sat outside on th patio, beautiful view of the creek and mountain with houses on the mountain..
Food is good we ordered pizza mussels and tiramisu and a bottle of wine, nothing was bad.
Server was new but he passed his test a day before and did a good job.
Would go there again.
We have had this on our 'to go to' list for quite some time now, and since we were staying across the street we saw the opportunity to go and made a quick reservation. We were not disappointed. Excellent atmosphere, friendly staff, and while we were there they were having a 3 course special that was really very good.
Nice bar area while you wait if you need to, and right off the main drag in the Village.
Despite the restaurant's description as a craft brewery haven we were steered heavily towards the wine list. We ignored this push and had a delightful beercentric meal. We enjoyed duck breast and were served promptly. The waiter's suggestions were perfect including an off the menu dessert of framboise lambic over vanilla ice cream. What more could you ask for than a beer float!
Our entrees were delicious. The Caesar salad and butternut squash soup however were lacking. Sever seemed knowledgeable which was nice. Wine by bottle was lacking a little but we did end up finding a bottle that suited our needs. Overall a pleasant experience.
