The Charter building and black diamond bistro is in real need of a facelift. Food was ok but absolutely no charm or ambiance. Dirty windows and needs a paint job, would not recommend .

Service was not great. Long stretches without contact from the server. Table beside us left because nobody came to take their order. Elevated ski lodge food, but definitely not worth the price tag.

Delicious halibut - I all but licked my plate clean. My husband had the bison and also enjoyed it very much. Beautiful setting sitting outside on the balcony. It was a lovely evening and most delicious meal.

We think the bar seating here is one of the valley’s best-kept secrets. Gorgeous views and casual vibe. Friendly wait staff and bartender and the food is awesome. Lots of gluten-free options. We never visit without a trip here for their chicken dish. Other great steak and fish selections. Pasta. Appetizers. Good pizza too.

The meal was absolutely delicious. In our party, we had the salmon, the halibut, the crabcakes and the BBQ pork steak. Everyone ranted and raved about how good their meals were. The staff was fantastic as well. We will be back!

Had a server who was training. Halibut dry and over cooked. Wine was mediocre. Ordered a ceasar to share and it was brought on 1 plate. Trainer did bring an additional plate. Service was rushed. Have dined here previously but this is probably the last time.

Is the chef choosing to experiment? Some dishes are good however the Lasagna could 100% win a contest for the worlds worst attempt at Lasagna.

I would give it 5 stars but the price was unusually high. $400 for 4 adults and two young children is a bit more than we expected. We will go back because we liked the food and service.

Family get together on ski vacation. This was our favorite dining experience of all during a week of skiing. We have already recommended it to other friends who go to Vail/Beaver Creek somewhat regularly. Andrew took very good care of us and anticipated our every need. He also made some great recommendations (Braised Short Rib - fabulous!, Espresso Martini was yummy, Brownie Sundae for dessert).

Interesting beer selection. Delicious appetizer with ricotta, candied carrots, salad, fennel. Dried Angus steak excellent.

Short ribs of beef a bit too fatty (fat permeated the beef) for my liking.

Unfortunately we split a meal but the food wasn’t split in the kitchen. We were handed a plate to split ourselves. The pork was tender but had a good bit of inedible fat in it! The noise level was high. There’s no soft surfaces to absorb the sound. Overall not a great meal.

The food was good but definitely not great. Our server was very nice and pleasant but we were rushed through the meal and found that VERY disappointing. Our entire dinner lasted one hour which is not what we expect from fine dining. We didn't even have the opportunity to finish our bottle of wine.....

Pork steak was unbelievably delicious accompanied by a killer potato dish and Brussel sprouts that went great with the BBQ sauce. The roasted chicken was almost equally good with a great combo of mushrooms and olives

A more casual setting (no table cloth), but very comfortable. Great service by Tom. We enjoyed Minestrone Soup (outstanding), Mahi Mahi on Lentils (wonderful) and NY Steak (perfectly prepared).
