They cancelled our reservation because the power to the gondola went out. Though Vail Mountain was able to to bring guests up the mountain to the Game Creek Club for dinner. They left a very unfriendly voicemail and didn't even offer to reschedule or give us other dining options. Just poor customer service overall.

Nice, informal restaurant with good food and friendly service. Great views of the mountain and it's fun to ride the gondola to and from dinner. We took our granddaughter, age 8, and she also loved it. Good for kids and adults.

Vail resorts needs to change the menu for this restaurant. The food is mediocre. We went on a Thursday when the entrees were BOGO. Bill was still expensive relative to the quality of the dishes.

Twelve friends met for dinner after a long day of skiing....food was amazing, the view was spectacular and service was superb. There wasn't a wait, which was a nice change from restaurants in the village.

Great fun with friends. A lot of laughter, very nice waiter, great view.

Food was HORRIBLE. I had pasta that not only tasted like it came out of a Ragu jar, but was cold.

We had a great lunch although they were out of one of the appetizers that we really wanted to try. Waitress was very nice. Even brought my daughter a bag of candy since she couldn't eat the desserts due to peanut allergy. French onion soup was good. Husband had turkey pot-pie which he really enjoyed. Daughter had rigatoni from kids menu and liked it very much.

We visited as a family and enjoyed riding the gondola to the restaurant and the amazing views over the mountain - we also had fun heading back down in the dark and the views of the stars are unbelievable. The restaurant it's self is casual and very family friendly. The food was good and there were more options than in other family restaurants we visited but the quality wasn't amazing for the price. The beer and wine options were good.

For fine dining, go to Larkspur or The 10th. Actually Two Elks food is better than this, though it's cafeteria and this is sit-down. Shrimp PoBoy is mostly bread, shrimp bland. Good peel-on french fries. Chicken tacos are very dry, guac ok but not super fresh. No Champagne by the glass. Best thing is carafes of ice water waiting on the table, and convenient location inside the main building across and slightly uphill from Pride Express lift.

Nice mountain restaurant with interesting menu. Many choices. Very good soups and mussels.
It is especially worth going up there for dinner on Thursday where they have a 2 for 1 entre.

I went there for years because of the exceptional Ahi tuna entree and I was disapponited with the substitute. The waiter told us the dish was "moved" by the chef to another restaurant of theirs. Now I feel the food is just good, not exceptional or very good.

Had a great time with my wife and two young kiddos. The only negative of the night was it took us getting up after 10-15m to get a waiter to come to our table to get our drink order. Other than that, the food was delicious and the evening was fantastic. This is a must for anyone traveling to Vail. Great food and drinks for the entire family

Beautiful ride up the gondola to a ski-in restaurant. Very attentive staff and good variety in the menu. Good for lunch while skiing, or for non-skiers, good for after ski hours, when the gondola is free.

8 of us ate, 2 had to send food back because it was undercooked and cold. They microwaved both meals, so when returned, they were uneatable. Service (Maxwell) started out really well and then disappeared, which is strange as the restaurant wasn't half full. For lunch, when skiing, it's ok.

The Bistro has a great setting with spectacular views of the mountains. I expected better quality for the food considering the menu prices, plus the cost of Gondola ride to get up there.
I would recommend for drinks and skip the food.

We ate here after our hike up and down mid-mountain. It is loud and anywhere from families to couples were dining here for lunch the day we ate there. The service was slow, drinks arrived fairly quickly but it took forever to get our burgers and sandwiches. It was a great place to eat after hiking and considering we were hot and sweaty, we would eat there again if in the same situation.

Food and service were great. We especially enjoyed the Two for Tuesday deal. One minor complaint: menu said 18% gratuity added for parties of six or more. We were two and nevertheless had the 18% automatically added. We were pleased enough with the service that there was no need to complain, but Bistro Fourteen should resolve this discrepancy.
