    We had a wonderful dinner last night! Kostiantyn was outstanding! He kept our glasses full, bellies full and our table neat. We loved the castle feel and the food was great! Our reservation was at 7:30 and they got us to our table little before our time. Thank you!

    Lancelot is always one of our favorite restaurants when we come to Vail each year. It is consistently delicious with a wonderful ambiance and excellent service. Our server this time was Kostiantyn, who was very attentive, efficient, and eager to make our experience the best possible. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    I love the relaxed feel of this place. Very cozy. The French onion soup and prime rib were both delicious. Others in our party really enjoyed the filet and Colorado fish with chickpeas. Server was friendly and attentive. Would definitely return next time we’re in Vail.

    Everything was great. Atmosphere, food and the service. Shout out to Ken for making our evening extra memorable. Only thing I would say is it’s a little on the loud/lively side so if you’re looking for something intimate this may not be the best venue. For us it was just right.

    A dinner at Lancelot is always something we look forward to. Their prime rib stands on top compared to any other restaurants we've visited. The Chili Garlic Shrimp appetizer is a relatively new discovery for me, and it's fantastic. And their owner and staff are wonderful. We come to Vail for the skiing, but if we stopped skiing, we might have to come to Vail just to visit Lancelot.

    We live locally in Vail and often forget about the popular tourist restaurants, but Lancelot is such a solid gem! It’s been in Vail forever (1969?) and for good reason. You know when you go to a restaurant and it’s just a well oiled machine. Lancelot is dialed in. From the moment we walked in, the hostess was friendly, the manager (I assume manager) welcomed us and our server was top notch. The food is 10/10. It’s a perfect old school vibe.

    I had a solo date night with myself as my husband was staying in Steadman Clinic after a scheduled surgery. I made an early reservation and the hostess gave me a lovely table. My server was very competent , considerate, and cool about my leisurely meal. By chance they had received a few Chilean Sea Bass as a Special which, I ordered. I must say it was one of the best quality Sea Bass filets (FRESH) I have ever eaten; also cooked to perfection. They also have a nice selection of wines and after dinner drinks. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special dining experience. It’s very popular; everything is good; reservations a must in order to get in!

    The service given by the entire team, especially the host, was wonderful. All three different entrees were appreciated by the diners. I especially enjoyed the Colorado striped bass The Apple streudel is the best I’ve eaten. Naturally the dining area was full. Therefore, the noise level is high but expected with a happy, pleased crowd.

    I’ve been coming to Lancelot for over 30 years and the best word to describe them is consistent. Their prime rib is always perfect. We also had their bread, spinach salad special, caesar salad, Lancelot cuts of prime rib, crème brûlée, and brownie with ice cream. Everything was delicious. In the past, I’ve had their wiener schnitzel and veal ambrosia, which are also excellent. You won’t be disappointed. The service is always excellent and their pricing is very reasonable for Vail and what they’re serving.

    Lancelot is a Vail classic. You feel like you’re in Austria atmosphere-wise, but the menu is very American and very good. Our waiter, Ken, was absolutely wonderful and steered us in the right direction. We really enjoyed our meal there and will definitely return…
