Great service and great food. Would be willing to call it one of the best landlocked seafood places I’ve been to.

We had a great dinner at Montauk Seafood Grill. It was actually the best restaurant/meal of our entire week in Vail. From the appetizer to the desserts, everything was fresh, delicious and well made. The waitress was very friendly and catered to all our needs. The ambience was great. They did a very good job spacing tables to keep people distant due to COVID. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were celebrating 2 family birthdays, though we didn’t need a particular occasion to eat at Montauk. As expected, our food was fabulous (filet, scallops, Chilean sea bass, seafood tower). Even our cocktails were fantastic. Paulina, our server, was amazing!!!

The food was ok, but not to our expectations. The tuna “signature dish” with veggies was less than impressive especially the vegetables.

If you want good seafood, this place did that well. Several types of oysters were offered, of which two USA based varieties were sampled. Followed by a bowl of mussels and broth with a cut loaf of fresh bread - yummy! Finished with a dinner of sea scallops from Maine and lots of fresh veggies topped with caviar. Very satisfying meal for in the middle of an alpine land.

Delicious food and very nice environment. Service was given only three stars because when entrées and dessert plates were both empty the plates were left on the table for 15-20 minutes and I had to request them to be removed. More attentive wine service would also be appreciated.

Reviews showed this to be a higher end and priced restaurant with $$$. My wife’s steak was ordered medium rare and came medium plus. My Chilean sea bass was over cooked as well. Not acceptable

Scallops cooked really well but unfortunately rather sandy. The pasta dish was perfectly cooked- al dente and crunchy veg but unfortunately the sand was a bit hard to get past.

The crusted halibut special - good quality and well cooked- was nice but could have done with a bit more flavor to the crust. The potato mash underneath was underwhelming and a bit too sweet.

Loved the warm rosemary bread- definitely recommend. But not so fond of the sweet butter - personal preference.

Portions were good size but would have preferred smaller portions and more flavor.

Nice yummy cocktails but the tequila jalapeño one was a bit too sweet also.

Service was very nice for a high end restaurant. Food came quickly. Did not feel rushed.

Scheduled a 4pm reservation for after our last day of skiing at Vail. We we were the first ones there and were seated right away next to the window. For my wife, daughter and I, ordered mussels app, arugula salad, Rib eye special medium rare, and chicken tenders for daughter. The rib eye was ok, a bit tough at parts. Arugula salad and mussels were excellent. Our waitress was excellent.

Rushed waiters goal is to turn tables. Food delivered before eating appetizers. Bill placed on the table, then asked if we would like dessert. In & out of this presumed high-end dining establishment in under 40 minutes. Won’t return.
