Best restaurant in Vail. Authentic Tyrol cuisine beautifully prepared and served in restaurant brimming in ambience of the region. The wine list reinforces the menu with unusual and delicious Tyrol selections. Dont miss it.

We dined at several places during our 7 day stay. This was by far our favorite. Overall experience was great. Food was exceptional. Ambiance: Beautifully decorated modern rustic with a European flair. Staff were friendly, professional and courteous. Really a fabulous place to eat and spend a couple of hours.

We loved our Almresi experience. Didn't really know what to expect when we booked the reservation, but my wife and I thought the food and service were both outstanding. It was easily the most pleasant dining surprise of our entire trip to Vail. Would book their again without hesitation and recommend friends to do so as well.

Grown son and nephew visiting for first time. Husband and I had been in fall. Loved it then. This is the winter, busy ski season. Very sorry to say the service was pretty poor. Very nice guy, but inexperienced. Had to flag people down for many things. Table not cleared before next course, asking for flatware, many times no one was to be found. I had to get up to ask for things. It was a Saturday night! Would’ve expected top service in Vail, peak season, and at a nice restaurant. Of course, the bill has to be paid no matter and it was expensive! Expensive is fine as long as you receive quality service and food. We did not convey to our guests, but we were disappointed. We will be going back to Pepi’s again (competitor in Vail) with future guests. Always consistent there.

Everything was great, except we felt rushed to drink, eat, and leave. In and out in 45 minutes ~ main course arrived right on top of appetizers ~ not as relaxed as we like.

Expectations were high given wonderful reviews at TripAdvisor, but we found Almresi just a bit underwhelming. The layout of the dining area was less than desirable. One side of the table had comfy chairs, the other side had a hard wooden bench, on which you had to really lean forward to eat properly at the table. The middle of the dining area was set for large group dining and the group was *loud* partly because the attendees were spaced too far apart from each other across the large table to adequately hear each other without shouting. (Add wine and spirits, and you get the idea.) Our table and others were located around the periphery, but not conducive to a romantic dining experience with quiet conversation. Service was satisfactory provided by people who had happy faces, but did not look like they really enjoyed their jobs. On a more positive note, the pork shank entree was great!

We always make a point to reserve a table at Almresi, and love the food. The only reason I withheld a star is I wish they would expand the wine list. Austria has numerous great producers - especially in Wachau - that offer great values but I think there was only one Riesling on the menu. A small point in otherwise wonderful experience.

We managed to get a reservation at Almresi at a reasonable time (5:30 pm for dinner) about two weeks in advance. We knew Almresi was very popular, and we were looking forward to our first visit. While we had a perfectly acceptable dining experience, we left feeling that this restaurant is overrated, overpriced, and a bit too much of a theme park. Some of the food items were delicious, like the spaetzle, the pasta, the cheese fondue, and the chocolate fondue. Some of the other food items such as the salads, the schnitzel, and the carrots and celery that came with the cheese fondue were decidedly underwhelming. Also, with both fondues, there was plenty of cheese and chocolate, but insufficient dipping items... we had to ask for more on both occasions. The few wines they offered were very expensive, the least expensive bottle being $65. I doubt we will return, as there are plenty of other fine restaurant options in and around Vail that serve consistently delicious meals (and wines) at better prices, and don't require a minimum of a two week advance reservation.

We overall enjoyed the experience. Great atmosphere and service. The meal was somewhat mixed. Cheese fondue app was good, so was salad and the salmon/potato dish. Schnitzel was disappointing [seemed premade and heated up]. I grew up skiing in Europe so I know what it is supposed to taste like. Would return now that we know what to order/what not to order.

The chairs in the "cow section" are very uncomfortable and need to be replaced. The chairs are too low and provide no back support unless you want to lean way back and not be involved in conversation.
