Only thing we didn’t like was the chocolate wedge of ice cream. It was just ice cream. The snapper and salad and a grilled cheese appetizer was unbelievable.

Had a fabulous Anniversary dinner here! Even though it is "off season", the restaurant was very busy! We were seated and they brought us a complimentary glass of prosecco. The service was wonderful, everything was timed right! We started out with fresh oysters on the half shell. Then my husband and I shared a Cowboy Tomahawk rib eye and a 1/2lb of King crab legs. It was a amazing dinner!! Could not have been a better Anniversary dinner, thanks to the staff!!!

Everything was just 'ok'. I had the grilled scallops which were actually very good, but the plate and presentation looked like it was from a cafeteria. The bread (that I had to ask for) was also very good. Sides were average. Ambiance average. Whole thing was meh.

Amazing food..Arancini was really rich and a great ap to share. Had the Ribeye and it was perfectly prepared. Great job managing Covid restrictions well. Expensive but it's Vail..so pretty normal pricing.

Loved the atmosphere. Seafood was very fresh. Good trick getting that freshness to Vail. Closest ocean is quite a distance.

The restaurant was very nice in regards to atmosphere unfortunately, the halibut was over cooked. Everything else was excellent. The waiter was average, some what slow to bring things to us. I noticed this waiter was much more attentive to the table to the left of us, giving them water checking back with them quite often compared to us. I even had to ask for more water.

Outstanding meal! Special occasion to get to know son's new girlfriend. Started with delicious oyster shooters and it got better and better from there. The scallops melted in your mouth and the crab legs were huge. The steak was prepared to the perfect temp. We even stuffed ourselves with a decadent dessert. Highly recommend!! You will not be dissapointed in anything.

Montauk is absolutely worth every penny. As locals we don't always go out to the higher end restaurants, but we were amazed and will go back as soon as we can. Romantic, beautiful ambiance and lighting, just enough quietness to enjoy your privacy. I would like to go back and have that Sea Scallop Carbonara again. And again! The Halibut is so buttery. A perfectly cooked fish. Highly recommend for couples, special occasions and an evening out. Thank you to Teva, our waiter, who took great care of us.

As a whole good restaurant for seafood in Vail. We have visited when in Vail over 20 years, making it a landmark restaurant. Had a great cioppino as it was the special and recommended by our waiter.

My wife had very good selection of seafood, and I good Manhattan -- both very expensive, but that is Vail.

I had a mediocre crab appetizer salad with little stringy crab.

The restaurant is one of the only choices for seafood in Vail.

My significant other loves seafood, so I chose Montauk after reviewing the menu. Was not disappointed in the least! Sometimes, we are a bit skeptical about visiting a seafood restaurant that isn't near the coast, but we were pleasantly surprised by Montauk Grill. The Mussels were excellent, fresh as ever and bursting with flavor. We were lucky enough to have a "low country boil" as the special, which we enjoyed thoroughly with the Alaskan King crab. There were a couple times that I commented how they must have a top quality chef running the establishment! Enjoy!
