 (Denver)·Dined on February 12, 2015

We first noticed Bistro 14 in our Eagle Point condo's restaurant book. The menu and prices looked pretty good for Vail, so we decided to try it out for dinner. I had never noticed it when skiing, but it turns out its in the building at the top of the Lions Head Gondola. We parked at the Lions Head parking garage which is free at night and walked over to the Gondola. Nice ride on the Gondola to the restaurant with a wonderful view of Vail and city lights in both directions. Dinner was very good. It wasn't too crowded. Dessert was a great surprise. Prices were very reasonable and you could sample several desserts for under $10. They were small but enough to give all 4 of use a couple of bites. All the desserts were really good. I am putting Bistro 14 on my list to try for lunch on my next trip.

They gondola ride adds fun to the dinner outing. Sydney our server was hysterical and made the meal! Tuna was best I had in Vail valley and the desserts were fabulous and beautifully presented. Not as fancy decor as you'd hope but overall a great time and reasonable price for the experience

Great place for non-skiers to meet skiers for lunch with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Food was excellent! We enjoyed the chicken pot pie, flank steak sandwich, and tenderloin. Something for each of us.

The views are beautiful and this is the only reason that you would eat here in the evenings. The ahi tuna salad was decent, but I was very disappointed by the portion of the tuna that accompanied the salad. There was only 5 or 6 thinly sliced pieces, so very little protein to make it a meal. The beet salad looked like it had canned beets. For the price of the salads, I was disappointed with the portions and quality.

The one really great point of the restaurant is that it has a good kids' menu. For $10, the kids started with a carrot and fruit plate, then had spaghetti with cheese and a hamburger as their entree (respectively), and then dessert with ice cream+brownie. This worked out well for us.

First, you have to pay $20 per person to ride the gondola to the top of the mountain. Food was disappointing. really no view from the restaurant but the outdoors area around it was very good. Dining area resembled a cafeteria and service matched. Food was bland.

Great place to dine in evening before sunset to catch sun as it goes behind mountains.
Also fun for lunch after hike or other mountain activity

We really enjoyed our visit to Bistro Fourteen. The restaurant was not too busy when we were seated and we got a window seat to watch the sunset while we ate.

Service was great and prices were better than any place I've been to in Vail with similar quality food. If you go during one of their special nights, you can really get a good bargain.

We really enjoyed our visit and plan to go back again the next time we're in Vail.

 (Kent)·Dined on April 1, 2014

Friendly service. Nacho starter very good. Problem arises when you tried to 'exotic up' otherwise good food. Trout main had so much flavoring it no longer tasted of trout. Indeed it was inedible, as was some rice looking accompaniment. Keep it simple. You are trying too hard. Both meals returned uneaten.
Deserts disappointing too, once again trying to be 'haute cuisine' in little taster tubs.
Out of 4 tables nearby, 3 tables sent something back to the kitchen. The waitresses standard catchphrase was ' what can I do to make this better'
Final irk was there was a special on this night. ie one entree course free. Gratuity automatically included at 18% , PLUS gratuity on the free entree, brought gratuity to 25% of the bill.

We ate lunch there twice in the last week. The ambience is good, the wait staff are on the ball. The first time we did not have a reservation but were lucky to get a table. We had a reservation the second time. I would recommend getting a reservation early in the morning or the day before. The food was prepared nicely and was quite good. Tendency is to linger and avoid more skiing as the location is comfortable. Deserts were consumed on the second visit and were decadent.

Views, Views, Views!, We had a late dinner not very crowded, as we were seated and started on our first cocktail (great by the way) several families came in, yes with kids (thankfully they were all very well behaved, yet still were being kids) we were seated somewhat close but were still unaffected by their presence. Our server (an English woman) was on her game, very charming (of course she's English) knew her stuff, checked on us etc. Food was decent flavourfull, somewhat expected, healthy portions, (don't get the out the Restaurant bathroom thing) will definitely go back when next in Vail. Money well spent. Hope you think so too. Cheers.

Bistro Fourteen has a unique location, on top of Lift One at Vail Mountain. We took the (enclosed) gondola in time to arrive just prior to sunset and took some great photos outdoors before heading inside. Our server was excellent - personable and knowledgable with just the right amount of humor and good natured kidding with our group. Their entrees, especially the trout and the lamb, were outstanding and well presented and their mini desserts were delicious!! Gondola is the only means of transportation and makes it a very special mountaintop experience.

My low score for service was due to the fact that out of 8 diners in our party, one was left without food until the rest of us had finished half their meal. Unacceptable in my opinion. The food (once delivered) was delicious. Fun location.

We were in town for Valentines weekend and wanted to try some place new and exciting. We had a great time taking the gondola up, enjoyed the great views.

We were sat a little earlier than our reservation; it was about 10 minutes before the waiter came over to us. He swapped our wines, took our dinner order and then never came back. Three other waiters had to help us get more water, the dessert menu, and the check. When we told the hostess she said sorry but he has a lot of big tops (he had two).

Overall the food was fantastic, but the service was not at all impressive.

Food was mediocre at best. Caesar salad was overdressed and lettuce was flat. Ordered kids chicken fingers and asked of they were seasoned and was told no. They came out and not only was it all bread and no chicken, there were huge black pepper flakes throughout the breading. Two kids meals $20 and my kids wouldn't touch them. Very disappointing for Vail.

We chose the 14 because there was no overpriced prixe fixe menu on V Day and it had availability. The hostess was all smiles, waitress Devlin was not.The meal peaked at the soup du jour. We order pork belly & Ahi app. Ahi was delicious but two tiny slices inadequate, the pork belly was weak, more resembled BBQ pork slices, I told the waitress this is not Pork Belly and she replied " Well it is just bacon" REALLY? My wife ordered soup n Duck salad, myself Chick Pot Pie. In a moment dinner was served....Guys, at least pretend you made it fresh!. Soup excellent Duck salad bowl drowning in dressing,wilty lettuce, 0 Prezo. CPP their sig dish peaked at Prezo in porcelain dish. Chick & veg gravy with puff pastry top. V.R. should be embarrassed.

 (Key West)·Dined on February 14, 2014

For a mountaintop restaurant at the top of a ski lift, the food was outstanding. Made a reservation for the family for convenience as we had an aggressive agenda trying to do a lot on the mountain in only a few days and was very happy with the result. (There is a tubing hill, zip line and snowmobiling course right next to the ski lift as well.) I hesitantly ordered the tuna which was sushi quality and absolutely delicious. They gave our 3 kids (9,7,3) some free apps and desert and all our food was good. Recommended if you want to maximize time having fun on the mountain rather than heading back to town, and yet still get a gourmet meal.

Although not really a secret, Bistro Fourteen is the best deal on Vail mountain for lunch. Reasonable prices (in fact even cheaper than cafeteria prices for kids) and sit-down service plus the ability to reserve a table, make this our family go-to lunch place. The food is also reliably excellent. My only reservation in writing this review is that it might be harder to get into for lunch!

We eat at bistro 14 each year on our annual ski trip to vail. It is a perfect spot for lunch before your last run. While the food is good, it was not as good as we remembered. The burger was good but not outstanding. The starter nachos needed a big more heat (ask for jalapeños). The chicken pot pie and onion soup are still fabulous. The service is fast and friendly. Worth a lunch while your on the mountain. You won't be disappointed.

Our evening was wonderful. I do think a little extra thought could go in to warming the atmosphere of the place up a little bit. A little dim lights would be nice along with maybe some soft music playing to cut the conversation noise a bit. I just think the food id wonderful for the price. I just think the interior needs a little beefing up to vail standards.

Actually, due to the on-line pictures, I thought 14 was the more elegant restaurant upstairs. After all table clothes and candles eludes to something more than a casual bistrl. If I had wanted a bistro I would have rated this place higher.

With that being said, our wait person was excellent and she was Julie on the spot for all our needs! Guess that is how they are tought down under in Melbourne !
