Yikes - not good at Cordillera. Restaurant was merely adequate. Food just so so. Service fine

Great location very poor execution. We were seated by a GM who was barking orders to servers. Our server was woefully inexperienced and overwhelmed. A salad was delivered that no one ordered. Someone placed it in the middle of the table expecting us to sort out whose it was. The food was very average and in some cases cold. Against our better judgement, we ordered dessert with two tables left in the dining area. After almost 1/2 hour, our melted ice cream came and then we had to track down our server to get a bill. We have been traveling in the Vail Valley for 15 years. It will be a venue to which we will never return.

Service was terrible. The waitress was very inexperienced. The food was only average. I would expect more for Cordillera.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived at our reservation time they told us they couldn't serve any food for 45 mins due to a wedding. I can't imagine this was unplanned. I was starving and had to ask for peanuts or something! Plus they made us pay for drinks while we waited on them! The service was slow, it took us 1.5 hours to get to dessert. We were the only table the entire night. The meals were too big and so so! We sent back our green chili as it was too salty. The ice cream was freezer burnt. Over all this was a poor experience. Only nice part was the views. Clearly they do not have a manager that cares!

My wife and I have a home in Beaver Creek and have the opportunity to dine at numerous high end restaurants in the Vail Valley. We like Mirador for its outstanding views, great service, food, and reasonably priced wine list. The wait staff is very friendly and not stuffy like a lot of the Vail Valley restaurants.

You will have to drive to Cordillera, but it is worth it to be dining in a mountain top restaurant.

AMAZING!! The view, the food, the service, easily the most memorable dining experience of our Beaver Creek trip. Everyone agreed this was their new fav and we will definitely add it to our yearly trip.

Our entrees took a long time to come out and we had to ask for the house bread. The food was really good but just know that it will be a 2 hour dinner.

My family had dinner during the holidays at Mirador. We tried for a 6 pm reservation and were unable to get that time, so we settled for 6:30. What surprised us was the nearly empty restaurant upon our arrival. The waitress was pleasant and did an adequate job, though she seemed inexperienced. The menu was somewhat limited. I had the roasted cauliflower & quinoa which was delicious. My husband and son's girlfriend both had salads, to which they added chicken. It was strange to have grilled chicken arrive on a separate plate, but they said it was good. My sons had the bass, which was overwhelmingly average. The resort was beautiful & off the beaten path. I would have preferred to be there in daylight to appreciate the views. We'd like to try it another day for brunch.

Food was excellent and staff very nice. We had the crab and avocado cocktail and pork belly for appetizers and entree of th Colorado striped bass ciopinno. Good portions and just delicious.

We were there for our anniversary which happens to be in the off season (September). There were very few guests the night we dined, but there were even fewer staff. The food was good and the staff was friendly and helpful, but things moved very slowly. Luckily we were not in a hurry and didn't mind the wait especially since we had a table facing the south towards the mountains. The Fall colors were just starting and the setting was beautiful. They were well aware of their problem with staff and apologized several times. Prices were reasonable too for a nice restaurant.

Place is very nice with good views , food ok but limited choice , I would say that you will probably find better food in the valley but the trip is worthwhile.

We stayed at the Lodge at Cordillera in Edwards, CO for an extended weekend getaway. Our dinner at the Mirador was Sunday evening, 8/9/15. We had a window table overlooking the valley below and the high peaks beyond. Fantastic setting. My wife had the beef special and I had salmon. Both meals were quite lovely and served hot. Our waiter, Shawn, was excellent and very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. Dining there was a little odd for us on this occasion in that we were the only ones in the restaurant for much of our meal. Perhaps that is an artifact of Sunday evening as many weekenders vacate on Sunday. By the way, we also had Sunday brunch at the Mirador and it was very good - - standard brunch fare but done nicely. Breakfast our last morning was topnotch. I had the crab cakes benedict which was extremely good.

We were here for our anniversary dinner, and had a reservation for 7:00. We were seated right away at a beautiful window table and our server was very attentive... at first. Then it seemed as though we were completely forgotten. We kept having to ask other servers for help in getting our server to attend to us. We were served our main course at almost 9:30! The worst part was that there was no explanation, and no apology. We are not picky or complaining types, and I always understand if there's a problem in the kitchen or whatever, but there was no excuse for this.
I will say that the food was excellent... when it finally arrived.

Went here for a special getaway weekend and we were not impressed at all by the restaurant. The quality of the food and service was extremely poor and the restaurant needs to refurbished... quite old.

Good ambiance, great food, super view but few patrons. It appears that the management tries to make up for the lack of diners by severe staff cuts ( one waiter for the entire restaurant).

While the single waiter tried very hard (and did an excellent job ), to survive this restaurant needs to add staff and start marketing all of its good points.

We were so looking forward to enjoying what once was fine dining in a grand, but cozy dining room. We were one of only a few tables in the outdated dining room, so the large, empty atmosphere filled with pop music was odd. Communication with other tables regarding the choice of menus (lunch or dinner) was confusing and then not accommodating, the food timing was off, the rib eyes were cooked perfectly and were very tasty, however the lamb looked to be incredible, however the preparation of breading, oil and then overcooked delivery was disappointing at best - overall the dining experience was just poor and awkward.

In summary, our impression of the Lodge at Cordiellra is that most of the staff feels very put out and that they really are doing guests a favor by servicing them. My guess is this is a result of poor management, under-staffing, lack of leadership, poor employee treatment and of course improper investment in maintaining and updating the property.

Good food and service. A nice place to go to have a quiet meal. The views are breathtaking. Wine list just changed so more options available with different labels than you'll see elsewhere. Shawn knows his wines and his suggestions were right on target.
