Excellent service, warm and friendly waitstaff, incredible cuisine, and romantic ambiance. Great place to celebrate in Vail. We dined as a family in the Antler room, and they were just as professional with our kids as the other patrons.

The only negative is the hostess and waitresses. They don't make you feel welcome.

Pepi's was recommended to us by friends, and I have to admit the bar portions with the live music is a great place to have a drink in Vail, as for the dinning in the dinning room is is fine but nothing to want me make a detour to go back.

Nice enough, but strudel should NEVER be reheated in a microwave causing soggy pastry and uneven temperature throughout

Sadly, not up to the standard we have expected from Pepi’s over the years. May be it was just an off night.

One and done for this tourist trap:
Our server was nice but the hostesses were rude. Food was not good & it was overpriced. Furthermore, we were seated at a table right next to an over decorated door and the decorations snagged my husband's brand new sweater.

I had been at least 15 years since my last visit to Pepi's!
Had lunch with relatives while attending a wedding wekend and could not have been more pleased with the service and atmosphere.
Very authentic as I lived in Germany for seven years.
Returned for dinner and the Wild dish of quail, venison, and elk was special! Highly recommended!

We have enjoyed dining at Pepe's for many years, but this last visit was a true disappointment. The meal was completely under seasoned and bland (and it's not easy to add salt and pepper to a schnitzel after it has been cooked) overcooked and dry. The traditional "parsley potatoes" on the menu were replaced with what can only be described as "home fries". Gulasch soup was tasty, but the rest of the meal was no where near the quality of years past. That just may have been our last dinner at Pepe's. Sad, but far too many places to choose from to return for mediocre food.

The schnitzel was very thin but portion size was generous. Apple strudel was tasty. The traffic in and out of the bar area where live music was playing was distracting.

Raw meat! Pepi’s is supposed to specialize in the preparation of game. We ordered the caribou medium and got one raw and one well done chop each. When we brought this to the attention of the waitress, she offered to bring one chop back to have it further cooked. The returned chop looked like it had been microwaved as it was now well done. I brought this situation to the manager who said he would “ see what he could do”. The waitress returned to offer a free dessert. Considering the entrees were $42 each, this was no where near appropriate for dinners we couldn’t eat. When we were given the bill, 15% was deducted from each entree...an insult to say the least. We paid the bill and left without further comment....no point as these people were clueless abour customer service.
