Tapas / Small Plates
Set in the heart of Vail Village, just off the pedestrian corridor, Leonora offers an inviting dining experience inspired by the French Alps, Spanish Pyrenees and our own Colorado Rockies. Using only the finest fresh, local and organic ingredients, the menu is designed as a tapas experience, one where diners embark with shareable small plates, progressing to larger plates which revere alpine flavors including Colorado lamb pops, local steaks and more. Flavorful dishes are simply prepared and thoughtfully paired with wines from around the world. Our sommelier's handpicked selections are sourced from traditional and unexpected places, each selected to complement Executive Chef Kevin Erving’s playful yet sophisticated menu. Reservations highly recommended.

    My friends and I had brunch at Leonora and it was the most wonderful experience. Dillion, our waiter, was so kind and attentive and made it the most lovely day! Jeff the manager gave us so many good recommendations for our stay in Vail. The entire staff was so genuine and we felt so cared for. You can’t beat the staff and the incredible food here. It’s a must do for brunch when visiting Vail. I can’t wait to go back! 10/10 recommend !!!!!

    We went for breakfast. My husband had the Tuscan skillet and he said the flavor composition was unbelievable and could be one of the best breakfasts he has ever had! I had the smoke salmon on a bagel with a spicy bloody mary. Overall very yummy and we enjoyed talking to the nice people that waited on us.

    Sadly, the food is not what it once was. This was one of my favorite spots in Vail. However, they have a new chef and the best parts of the former menu are no more. The charcuterie board was a huge disappointment and looked more like leftovers thrown on a plate. I hope it will return to fine dining experience it once was.

    LeonoraResponded on September 28, 2022Hi I’m sorry you were disappointed with your experience.

    We were first greeted by the host who could not find menus?!!! We were then seated outside next to the outdoor pool, which provided a nice background noise of screaming children. The service was slow and the food was overpriced and uninteresting. The only redeeming item was the old fashioned. So, if anything stop for a drink or just pass on by….

    Leonora was amazing. The staff was incredible- Lance and their GM were so friendly and welcoming. We had our 15 month old and they bent over backwards to accommodate us. We had the pork belly (not to be missed!), ceviche, poke, Brussels and the 18oz bone in Buffalo ribeye. The kids mac and cheese was also excellent. Drinks were on point. I cannot say enough good things about this meal. Don't miss this if in Vail!

    The food was absolutely delicious- some of the best we've had in Vail, but the staff is what really made our experience extra special! The Sommelier Garrett was knowledgeable and friendly- we enjoyed great wines and cocktails at a reasonable price! Our server Will was very attentive and made us feel comfortable and welcome throughout our experience. They had a unique kids menu that made our 6 year old daughter feel "extra fancy" and allowed her to have her own culinary experience (something that is rare when it comes to kid's menus)! We will absolutely be dining at Leonora again! They really went the extra mile with both food and service! Highly recommend!!

    We went for Mother’s Day brunch. Unfortunately the host didn’t explain brunch included bottomless mimosas and he also didn’t offer us a high chair or booster seat despite our reservation requesting one. Not a great welcome but everything after was nice. Didn’t learn mimosas were included until we got the check. Oh well. Great food. Waitstaff was attentive and helpful.
