Pepi’s is the best. A Vail tradition that never disappoints. The food is outstanding, and so is the service. You can’t go wrong with any of their specialties. However, I have to order something that comes with red cabbage and spatzle. It wouldn’t be a meal at Pepi’s without those sides. I look forward to returning on my next trip to Vail!

Everything was great except for the food. I ordered French onion soup and beef stroganoff. The soup tasted like someone dumped a container of salt in it. The beef was overly salted and tough as a rock. Would not go back here.

Make reservations for the dining room. It is very different from the bar out front. Bar is loud and raucous, but then they take to you the dining room behind a closed door and it is very nice and quiet for dinner.

No meat in the schnitzel but plenty of breading! For the $100 bill we had to also listen to the extremely loud apres ski craziness on the other side of the restaurant! Won’t go back!

The caribou was amazing. All the food was amazing.

The ambiance in the dining room is starkly different from the bar. Don't let the noise in the bar deter you from trying this.

I never give reviews but want to warn others. We hought we would be eating in the bar area with the live music. This is a separate restaurant from there. The hostess was rude- calling the patrons animals. Food was overpriced, heavy, salty and pretty hard to get down. Waitresses were in German costumes. So silly.

Pepi's is not what it used to be. Still good, but not comparable to some of the other alpine-inspired restaurants in Vail. The food is okay-ish, some of it better, some of it bland. The cozy ambiance makes up for it a little bit, but overall it could all be a bit better.

Excellent food: French onion soup, suburb. Rack of Lamb, exceptional. Stroganoff, authentic Germanic and delicious. Service: just right, attentive to the right degree. Atmosphere: Once you get through the energetic and noisy bar, the dining room is a quiet haven, nicely appointed. Comfortable with touches of the home country, but no overdone. We'll definitely return.

Best meal we've had in a long time. The tuna crudo was excellent, onion soup excellent, veal excellent, wine excellent. A+. We loved the atmosphere in this place too. We had dinner reservations at 7:30pm on Saturday night. There was live music in the bar when we arrived so we grabbed a beer, it was awesome. Then our table was ready in less than 10 min. The aroma from the food in the restaurant area was outstanding. It was cozy and a bit noisy from all the folks talking at dinner but we like this. Great food, comfortable, and lively. Can't wait to go back.

Pepi’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Vail. I love the style of the premises and the deliciousness of the cuisine. I recommend the duck and the venison. Leave room for dessert because the apple strudel is a must-have!

Everything was awesome. We are locals and just wanted to join a little hustle and bustle in the village. Always enjoy ourselves at Pepsi!

(FYI- your hostess could use a chill pill. Very abrupt- not to us but her overall vibe was rattled). Still, it was all GOOD.

If you need dairy free food don’t go here, there is virtually nothing without dairy save the split pea soup and a salad.

Pepi’s is a ‘must-do’ for us every ski trip. Wonderful authentic Austrian/German food. Try the brotwurst at lunch or the beef stroganoff at dinner. The waitresses are attentive, the service is timely, good central location.
