We lived in Germany for six years and this is hands down the best German food we've ever had outside of Germany - right down to the Apfelstrudel for dessert! The wait staff and cooks are all authentic Germans, the atmosphere is very much like a local German pub, and the food is amazing! We're hoping that they will add Sauerbraten to the menu before our next visit!

We went here for an anniversary dinner and Almresi did not disappoint! I have never had German food before and this place was the perfect introduction. We sat outside by the creek which was the perfect scenery. We had a German Pinot noir that was fantastic and went well with the fondue app. Get the short ribs! It was so so good! This place is bomb and if I ever go to Vail again, I’ll be sure to visit Almresi!

The experience at Almresi was wonderful. Service was prompt and friendly, but not overbearing. And the food also was terrific - we had the pretzel and a flatbread to start the meal, pork shank and short rib entrees, and the apple strudel dessert (don’t ask me to write the Austrian/German names!). It was a wonderful experience, and we will be back the next time we’re in Vail.

This is hard, because the food was amazing and everyone we interacted with was absolutely lovely and welcoming. However, it was an extremely busy night during Oktoberfest weekend. We were seated on the cozy, romantic back patio, which was very private. Unfortunately, this meant we were frequently forgotten (as was another couple seated near us). We went 40 minutes after receiving our entree before we saw a server again. I'd like to try again in the future, as really the food an ambiance was great, the service was just really lacking this evening.

Our original reservation was for a party of four. We had two additional friends ready to join us at the last minute. The wonderful owner was able to make arrangements for us so that our party of six could enjoy dinner together. The food was outstanding, the service excellent, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. We cannot thank the owner and staff enough for providing us with such a special evening! We look forward to our next visit!

The food was fantastic (short rib was the most tender piece of meat I've had in a LONG time). And the atmosphere...bringing my dad and mom back when they visit - they are German-Austrian foodies.

We ate the scheinehaxe. The meat was very tender. We think you should cook the fat on the pork until crispy and serve it this way. This would give the pork more flavor. Cook it like they do in Germany. The rot kraut and gravy were delicious.

Wonderful find in Vail! We had the fondue, the potatoe pancake with smoked salmon,,, and the short ribs with spaetzle and cabbage, all on the waitress’ recommendation. Service was excellent and our waitress was extremely friendly and energetic. Our food came out perfectly timed and every bite was delicious! Food was generously portioned and moderately priced for being in a high-priced tourist location. All of the staff were from Austria or Germany and were dressed in traditional garb which really added to the experience – made you feel like you were actually in Austria! One of our best meals of the trip! Highest recommendation!
