We’ve eaten here several times for the years of skiing Beaver Creek. Have always had a positive enough experience to keep coming back. Except maybe this time. Service was good and the ambiance remains wonderful. The food was a huge disappointment. The hamburger was over cooked and dry. The truffle fries were soggy. Not what I expect from a lunch for two that costs $100!

The taste of the food was great but I ordered the tacos and the waitress asked if I wanted avocado on the three small tacos. So I did she never told me how much extra it would be. We got the bill and she added $12 for a few slices of avocado ridiculous. To add bacon to a sandwich it was $3. My advice don’t add avocado.

The Ritz Carlton - Bachelor Gulch is a beautiful building and fits the area well. We went for a Saturday dinner. Food was mixed, the burgers were very average, not worth the price. Over peppered and under dressed, kinda meh. Chile and nachos were a hit.

Two minor complaints, the music was overly loud and the room very HOT!

We were comfortable eating at Buffaloes, it followed all the need COVID guidelines, properly spaced tables etc. However, we were appalled by the bar however, it looked like 2 years ago, unmasked people, piled upon each other.

We were very disappointed. The restaurant was very understaffed and our server was overwhelmed. My $58.00 steak was served lukewarm at best. We had to ask for steak knives. A grain bowl served to my adult daughter was in her words "tasteless". This is a place for a beer and soft pretzel at the end of the day. It is a not a place for an expensive dinner.

The woman working the hostess stand was incredibly rude and uncommunicative. There were a number of seats inside and when we asked to sit there (rather than in the 10 degree outdoor area) she said they were all taken - when they weren’t (I doubt she even checked). Those tables were empty from when we sat until when we left. Too rude of service to be paying that much for lunch.

My trout was small and dry. Our waitress was so nice and we enjoyed our drinks. My husband really enjoyed the beef burgundy so not a bad experience. Too bad the trout was so disappointing. There was live music fighting with the piped in music so that should have been coordinated as well.

Stayed at the resort for 3 nights and spent most of our time at buffalos! The food & service is amazing! Highly recommend the cast iron nachos- we got them twice! Also special shout-out to Juan the manager and Tracy the server! They were both fantastic and provided superb service during our visits. Very professional and friendly.. no detail went unnoticed thanks to the two of them! Sad to leave but can’t wait to return!!

We have eaten at this restaurant since it opened and this was a terrible experience on all levels. Food was not good, overpriced 32.00 for a salad with chicken, and chili that was half a bowl that lacked taste. We understand everything can be blamed on COVID, but the RITZ...its unacceptable at any price. Our lunch for 4 of us was 200.00, and it add insult to injury the parking fee is 200.00 if your picking up skiers. They have ruined the Vail Valley experience.

The night started with complimentary valet parking, followed by a kind escort to our table. We were served our drinks fast and efficiently and the quality was great. Best glass of wine I’ve ever had. Our appetizer came out fast, and our entrees were to die for. The noise level was perfect, the lighting dim but not too dim, the service kind and professional, and the food was amazing.

Our server was a new employee from Florida, wonderful woman. But there was this Ritz employee, a man in a diner jacket, who came to tell us to put our masks on right as our drinks were arriving. Sort or ruined the whole occasion. We had our masks on until we were already seated knowing our food was on it's way. Wouldn't recommend this spot.
