 (Little Rock)·Dined on February 9, 2015

I have been to this restaurant in the past, but the menu has been updated and there is also a variety of craft beers that are available. The menu includes some beer and food pairings if that is something that interests you. We started our meal with an order of mussels and some barbecue lamb meatballs. Both appetizers were enough for our party of four to share, and they were delicious. As entrees we each had something different; a smoked pork shank, salmon, diver scallops, and roasted cauliflower ravioli in a butternut cream sauce. Portions were large and everything was beautifully presented and well prepared. The restaurant is expensive, but I think it is comparable to many other restaurants in the Vail area. Service was good; but when the restaurant became crowded, we had difficulty getting our waiter's attention for the final check.

As a foodie, I am very discriminating. I do not like to pay lots of $ for average food. The food was memorable! I can't wait to go back. The service was very attentive.

Food was excellent. It was hot and great presentation. Ambience fit the menu. Our waiter wasn't what you would expect at this type of restuarant. However, the supporting wait staff was very good. They made up for a lot of his issues.

 (Pittsburgh)·Dined on January 10, 2015

Under experienced wait staff. Poorly put together food.
Caesar salad was poor. Wet lettuce? are you kidding me. Did not spin lettuce dry and served a dressing that was not creamy at all but more oil and vinegar based. Pumpkin farro risotto that: A. Was so dry it became paste like on my plate within 10 minutes and B. had WAY TO MUCH GARLIC. Not just a little too much but so much I can not believe who ever made it tasted it and thought to themselves " yes this is pretty good".
2 plates that we specifically made changes to, no pistachios to came to the table loaded with plenty of them.
Poor dinner service. They need help in the back and the front

 (Houston)·Dined on January 4, 2015

Just got into Vail and was able to get an early reservation for three. Started with the mussells since I had read about them. They didn't disappoint. Lots of flavor and very tender! Even my kids enjoyed them and had never had mussels before. I had the pumpkin tortellini. My daughter had the turkey burger and fries and my son had the barbecue chicken pizza. We all were thrilled with our choices. Good service and nice atmosphere. I would definitely go back.

The food was excellent, however our server was very unattentive. For this price, I would have expected more from him than simply taking our order. He seemed to be in a rush and in turn, neglected our table throughout the night.

Very romantic dinner - first time at this restaurant. Everything was lovely - the only question we had was why we were the only ones there?? It was very surprising given the great food and service. Will go back next time we're in the valley!

The location of this restaurant (inside a hotel) means you will have families and potential crowds. Make a reservation in advance (through open table). The service was excellent and friendly, food was good and the location is perfect for taking an after dinner walk along the river. There is a nice bar area outside the restaurant if you do need to wait for a while.

We are staying at the Cascade Hotel and this is their restaurant. The food was very good with generous portions. I had the sea bass both nights we went, and my wife's pork shank was delicious and falling off the bone. The fish was expertly cooked and flavorful. My only suggestion would be that the restaurant could be laid out/organized/decorated differently to give it a more elegant look. Then it would match the chef's presentation.

We were greeted by a very friendly hostess that asked if the evening was a special event. We modestly noted that it was an anniversary night. The wait staff was very helpful with my wife's gluten free dietary needs. Several quality options existed for her. Prices were what we expected for a quality restaurant in Vail. We were treated with a special and complimentary dessert for our occasion.

One note is that we learned that this restaurant is about 1.5 to 2 miles down valley from Vail Village. A separate shuttle service connects Vail Village and Vail Cascade Complex. Ask the reservationist for guidance. It is not directly serviced by the main Village bus.

This was a quiet and relaxing venue with an excellent view of the Vail mountainside. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. The salmon sandwich on gluten free bread was excellent, as was the pub burger. Cooked perfectly. The chipotle maple aioli accompanying the sweet potato fries was superb. Also enjoyed the flour less chocolate cake.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an upscale but casual dining experience. The menu is varied and friendly to vegetarian and gluten sensitive diets, and the staff is accommodating and willing to help with dietary needs.
