It was very relaxing sitting by the creek. Service was great. It came highly recommended by a local but my entree wasn’t the best (the gnocchi was a little too dense or maybe over cooked, and I thought an odd mix of flavors). I would not order it again. Other entrees like the short rib were better, according to my family. More

Discover Vail

There's no place for a cozy winter getaway quite like Vail. After a day of skiing, the town's many bistros, lounges and bars offer plenty to do whether you want to wind down or spend the night out with friends. Vail takes much of its culinary influence from other mountain destinations, most notably the Alps, featuring numerous French, Italian and even Swiss restaurants. This town's reputation as a flourishing destination for skiers brings a surprising amount of variety to the area. At the local Japanese and Thai restaurants, you can taste almost every corner of the world. Vail also offers a number of Mexican restaurants for those who want some spicy chile-flavored cuisine to warm up from the cold of the Rocky Mountain slopes.
