While I have eaten at Northside for breakfast, brunch and at their grab N Go location, this was my first dinner experience. My guests were under the impression that is was a basic burger place based on the super casual exterior and interior. While I am a fan of the food I was a little surprised by the menu as well. While the atmosphere is a bit "domestic", the menu is NOT low-class. The service is also on par, if not better, than fancier settings. Our waiter (pardon I forgot his name) and the rest of the staff was at the top of their game and left nothing to be desired.

The food! Okay, so the price point might seem a bit high based on what you see around you but it is WORTH it. My party had the house trout specialty, the salmon, the Caesar salad with chicken (huge portion!), and Jim's Pesto gnocchi. Each guest raved about their dish and it was hard to decide who had the best choice. The trout was boneless and superb, the Salmon fresh and savory, the gnocchi inspirational, and the salad was a feast in itself.

Drinks: The wine selections, and our servers knowledge of their wines was impeccable. When I couldn't decide on a red he suggested tastings to help me pick. Brilliant! The cocktails were nice and they know to use a single large ice cube! They do have happy hour specials for drinks at the table but if you want a real treat, sit at the bar and enjoy happy hour drinks AND food.

My guest could not stop raving and when they came out with a dessert to celebrate a birthday it was the icing on top of the cake, literally. Their triple chocolate cake is amazing.

Donuts: They make them fresh onsite for breakfast and if there are any left when you get there for lunch/dinner, take some home. Soo good!

Vail is still pretty strict on COVID rules so I would recommend a reservation so you don't get disappointed.

We had dinner on April 12, 2021. The food was really excellent. We shared a tuna tartare appetizer that was fresh and delicious. My friends and I all had the Prime Rib. Cooked perfectly and served with mashed potatoes and very tasty veggies. We passed on dessert, but took home a few donuts (yum). All in all a great meal. Great service. A real local gem!

First time dining at Northside Kitchen in Avon and loved it. Casual and friendly service, great atmosphere, excellent food. Gave us several complimentary donuts so kids have christened it their new favorite place on earth. We will be back once I muster the willpower to resist the cronut.

This is hands down the best Avon restaurant. If you have allergies to soybean, you can dine here with no risk. We ordered the elk & ox bolognese and the gnocchi with short rib. The portions are huge, and the flavor is amazing for both! They also serve you fresh bread throughout the entire meal. The dirty martini hindrix with extra olives was made with perfection. I ordered the Patron reposado from their aged barrel. Patron ships it to them in the barrel.

The customer service is probably the only thing that can compete with their food. They treat you like you’re part of the family when you walk in. You will love every second of dining here. We will becoming back here anytime we stay in Avon.

You MUST get the the gnocchi! Do not avoid it! We will try the halibut next. I heard it is the best halibut in the mountains. The food is better here than at the Ritz (WYLD) in my opinion. The prices are extremely reasonable and fair. You’ll enjoy every moment you’re there. You might walk out a bit over weight because you won’t stop eating for enjoyment.

I highly recommend this place! The trout was outstanding, the pesto gnocchi was out of this world and don’t be afraid to try the Elk and Ox Pasta Bolognese. I asked the server if it was going to be “gamey” and he assured me, not at all. Well, it wasn’t gamey, the flavors were great and I would order it again in a minute. Though we don’t go out much because of the pandemic, we took a chance and actually felt rather safe. The protocols were followed to a T and we were very happy we tried it.
