the food was excellent; the service was great; the jager schnitzel and wiener schnitzel were great.
the only problem is the very obnoxious live music from the bar bleeds over into the dinning room

I've been coming to Vail for past 20 years and make it a point to go to Pepi's every visit. Perfect place to have a hearty dinner after a day of skiing.

We four had a great experience at Pepi’s, in all respects. Our lovely server Diana was terrific, all the food was wonderful and we felt like we were back in St Anton. Highly recommended.

Very, very good food, nice atmosphere. However, the service was a little off. We were served our salad before our waitress took our drink order. It was a little disjointed but the food was fantastic so it wasn't a big deal, just a little odd. Would go back for sure.

Delicious food and very nice, quaint Bavarian style atmosphere. Kids menu is limited though and $15 for a bowl of plain spaghetti is a bit much. Salmon and Truffle Gnocchi we’re both to die for.

Another wonderful meal at Pepi’s although the guitar player in the bar is so loud he interferes with conversation in the dining room. Once he stopped playing the meal was wonderful!

We. were seated at a table near the door to the bar which meant constant traffic by wait staff in and out of this very noisy and busy bar scene. Even taking into account that it was a very busy night, we found service to be unfriendly and that we were being rushed. Second course was brought when we were not yet finished with the first, with the comment that the chef could not hold that food any longer. Altogether this was an unsatisfactory experience standing in contrast to earlier very pleasant ones.

Enjoyed our post-snowshoe lunch at Pepi's just before Christmas. Great festive atmosphere with great people watching out the windows. Cozy atmosphere with attentive wait staff and wonderful german fare. Highly recommend the Spatzle and the french onion soup. Generous portions, so share unless you have a ravenous appetite.

We drive to Pepi's from Denver at least twice a year. Talk about delicious! The French Onion soup is definitely one of the best in the state, the Jager Schnitzel was so tender with amazing mushroom gravy and the spaetzle was perfect. A new entree, the Veal Sheika, with tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach with wild rice is now one of our favorites! Really nice wine selection and tried a new white wine, The Prisioner Blindfold, which was inexpensive but perfect with our meal. Pepi's is definitely one of the very best German restaurants in Colorado!

This is a nice little gem of a restaurant. The food is Austrian, the drinks are priced fairly, waitstaff was great. The ambiance was comfortable and attractive. We enjoyed a nice meal for a fair price during restaurant week 2018. All the complaints about waitstaff I read online seem to have been addressed.

Pepi's is a staple German restaurant in Vail. Great menu selection, excellent quality food and desserts, and a wonderful wine list. Their service is next to none as well, as, even when busy, their servers do a great job attending to guests needs. The ambience of the restaurant is also charming and quaint, reminiscent of old world german cottage-inns. While it is pricey, it is definitely worth splurging on if you're looking for one fancy meal in fail.
