    Personally it was my second time at Pepe's and it did not disappoint. The French onion soup is suburb. The venison loin was so tender and flavorful. The generational family favorite wienerschnitzel was delicious as always. Great service and just a wonderful relaxing experience.

    Enjoyed our dinner at Pepi's very much. The ceasar salad, goulash soup, Idaho trout and the strudel were excellent. Although we were on the enclosed patio, it was quite warm and enjoyable.

    Wonderful menu with Austrian specialties. Great service and ambiance. The Beef Stroganoff and Trout filet were outstanding. Come hungry as portions are generous and every side dish was exceptional.

    Waitress was rude and virtually absent. Never once asked us how the meal was or followed up with us for anything. Couldn’t even get her to refill our water and at the end of the meal she literally threw the tab on the table and walked away.

    We had a reservation for patio dining. Once the hostess was done playing with her tablet she seated us. Food and wine were good. The only problem we had was with the check. One item was incorrect. After asking about the item he told us that the computer shows the wrong item, but the price was correct (which turned out was not correct).

    Pepi's is an Austrian restaurant with wonderful food. The French onion soup was pretty good. We especially enjoyed the Jagerschnitzel (my husband had pork and I had veal) with a truly delicious mushroom sauce and good spatzle and red cabbage. We were seated on the patio with a great view of the walking mall in Vail, and it was enjoyable people watching. A very nice experience for a lovely September day....

    Worst jagerschntzel I've ever had - soggy, no breading, no flavor. Trout had no flavor. Seemed like everything was premade and under heat lamps. The rolls were hard as a rock.

    We have always made Pepi's a favorite stop for meals while staying in Vail. 28 years of eating there. Especially loved visiting with Pepi when he was still living. However, this time was a huge disappointment. scheduled to go back for lunch later this week but will probably cancel.

    The Wiener Schnitzel is outstanding. Paired it with the Laurent Perrier split. The Laurent Perrier is hands down the best split for the money. Great service. Very cool people-watching on the outdoor terrace. Killer chocolate mousse. Felt like I was in Europe living large.

    Have been to Pepi's a couple times befor, when in Vail and was very pleased. But this visit was a big disappointment. I ordered the Weiner Schnitzel and it was mostly breading with veal you could read through. Was supposed to be a special birthday dinner.
