Steakhouse
As Four Seasons Vail’s signature restaurant, we want FLAME to focus more on “fun dining” rather than traditional fine dining. Locally sourced and seasonally inspired dishes combined with unique steak cuts and tableside experiences provide guests with an interactive dining adventure you can’t get just anywhere.

    We went here for our anniversary and had an absolutely amazing experience. We accidentally stayed past closing and they didn't even warn us, just continued with their excellent service all around. Food was delicious, attention to detail was great, mountain views were fabulous. Javier was a fantastic waiter!

    This was NOT a very good experience. Okay food, nice but slow service (one hour from seating to appetizer), and a very dull atmosphere. Upstairs was hopping, maybe we should’ve eaten in the bar! With all the choices in Vail this will not be on our list of returns.

    The room was freezing. Our table of five were too cold and we even asked to turn the a/c down. They said they would but didn’t. We wore our down vests and jackets throughout the meal.

    The service was what one expect from an "exceptional" restaurant. The food, however, was lacking. We understand that it is the shoulder season in Vail but I have never had anyone return a steak for lacking flavor which is what the couple joining us chose to do. I had the duck, which one expect to be exceptional as it is not served everywhere, but it was average by any standard. My wife had dover sole which was a little over cooked. Given the pricing this was not what i expected, it will be a long while before we dine at the Flame.

    We had a lovely evening with no pressure to rush. We had a delicious meal and our waiter, Javier, was wonderful and funny. It would be worth your while to sit in his section! The octopus, the strip steak and the filet were all prepared perfectly to our order. Topped off with the chocolate expresso cake....delicious. It was a relaxing atmosphere that allowed us to really enjoy each course. We had a fabulous time and cannot recommend Flame enough. Five stars!

    What an amazing dinner! Celebrating our anniversary and the staff really made me feel special! I have never celebrated something like this so I was just in awe. Our server Nina was so kind and awesome. She really made our night special. We live out here and had never made it over here to eat but will definitely be coming back.

    We went for our birthdays, and our experience was fabulous. The white asparagus soup was out of this world. The combination of flavors makes this a must-order for anyone. The steak was perfect, and we complemented it with the risotto and quinoa vegetarian dish. Our waiter was top-notch!

Our filet’s we perfectly prepared! I recommend the espresso cake for dessert! Great ambiance!

    Service uneven. Wine list very inaccurate, showed many wines didn’t carry and wrong vintages. Did better as night went on. Tried hard to make up for issues at beginning. Octopus great but rest of food not up to level of prices. They need to do better for such a premium-priced place.

    Gorgeous views, amazing service, food and cocktails. We each had the prime NY strip and the truffle fries that aren't on the menu. Ask for them, they're the best! The macaroni and cheese with fruit received two thumbs up for our daughter as well.

    My husband and I both agreed we had the best cocktails and entrees of our life! Dessert was up there, too! Our meals (bison ribeye and pork chop) were cooked perfectly. The cocktails (Manhattan and Botanist) were worth the price tag. We had incredible service - no complaints at all. Highly recommend!!

    The food was perfect. The cocktails were not well made, not terrible, but not Four Seasons quality. Service was pleasant but understaffed, no one around when you needed help. Forgot to deliver a dessert, took it off the bill and delivered late. As expected Four Seasons staff was horrified at the error. Over all a nice meal, can’t wait for service to get back to normal. Wine list seemed limited, not sure if there was a larger list but the one presented was surprisingly short for by the bottle choices.

    The food was pretty good, however, it is very overpriced. The half chicken is $45 and, while seasoned well, it was a bit dry. And half chicken is all you get, no side dishes. The $50 10 oz strip was cooked nicely and tasted good, but you can get the same for another $30 at a nice steakhouse. And their staffing is low. It took too long to order and to get served.

    Chef Simon is outstanding and personable, too. His culinary skill is unmatched and his table side explanation and hello made the evening that much more special. We’ve always loved Flame and the Four Seasons Vail, however the property and cuisine have been significantly elevated over the last 3 years. 10/10 would recommend!!

    Been coming to Vail forever and never knew of Flame. Fortunately almost all the restaurants are closed this mud season, except for Flame. Our waitress was Nina, and she was amazing, best service we have had in a long time. The Sous Chef, Veronica, heard it was our first time there, so she came out with a special concoction she made. A candle made of beef fat and spices. It had a wick in it, she lit it with a chefs torch. It melted slowly and we used it for our bread instead of butter. It was so great! Steaks were amazing and cooked perfectly. Total evening was perfect! Will definitely make Flame one of our regular stops!

    We visited on Mother’s Day Brunch. The selection was terrible. If you didn’t like seafood 3/5 options and you didn’t want steak for breakfast you were stuck with ordering $90 pancakes. I expected so much more from the Four Seasons. Absolutely terrible.
