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!

The crusted Halibut may well be the best piece of fish I have ever eaten. Our family of three had an amazing meal with each one of us believing we had the best entree, truth is everyone was incredible starting with the Halibut, the BBQ Salmon and the seared Ahi.

Amazing food, great service and ambiance!
After reading all the great reviews, we decided to make reservations for Montauk, and it was the best dinner and experience while in Vail.
We had Maine Lobster Arancini as our starter and I was in love... all the flavors on this appetizer were exquisite!
Our entrees didn’t disappoint either, my halibut was to die for!
Our server was amazing as well, he offer great recommendations and was very pleasant and friendly.
Colorado is a beautiful state with wonderful restaurants and many options, Montauk Seafood Grill is definitely one of them! It is must if you are visiting Vail. Highly recommend it!

This is our second visit as we had dined here last year when we were staying in Vail. We were able to sit outside as the weather was very nice. We all had a crab or fish dish which was very good. Great service and a good location.

I had the halibut and my wife had the scallops- both were excellent. Beautiful filet of halibut Panco crusted and cooked perfectly. Mussels as appetizer were good but not great. Recommend the outdoor seating for good people watching.

We loved Montauk! The service, the food, the wine. It was outstanding. We had a long weekend in Vail and first time going to Montauk. The seafood was outstanding. The crab legs were some of the best we have had. A wonderful evening. Helena our server was fantastic and a real pro.
