    They would not serve my date a drink because she only had a copy of her ID on her phone, and the manager was somewhat rude about it.

    The service was outstanding and the food was good. We were seated on the porch - enclosed with space heaters, but it was still freezing out there. Food got cold too quickly to be enjoyed, which was disappointing. Unless you are a polar bear - would recommend sitting inside!

    The food was decent and the servers were nice, but everything is so rushed. We ordered our food and it was on the table within 5 minutes- schnitzel can’t be prepared in 5 minutes so everything must be pre-made. Overall we were really disappointed in what we thought would be a great dinner out. Not worth the price for the experience you get.

    Food was delicious, though expensive like everywhere in vail. Wait staff was doing great and very nice, especially as it was obvious that there were fewer of them covering the tables than ideal. The pork shank was out of this world. Quite the experience, would recommend!

    Food quality has declined in the past few years, while prices have skyrocketed (ala Vail). New ownership? There is no flexibility in the orders now. No substitutions we were told. Wienerschnitzel meals came out about 5 minutes after order, and must have been advance prepared, awaiting orders. Spätzle was not the quality of past years. Many of the old Alpenrose German style desserts are also gone now. We ordered apple strudel to go afterwards (pretty good), with whipped cream for an extra $3.00. It was about three Tablespoons in a little container.

    This is the second time we have eaten here in about six weeks. Both times, our waitress informed us that they were out of certain items on the menu. They were always items we were interested in ordering which was a bit disappointing. Their goulash and potato soup, for example, must be popular items so they should just increase how much they make of these things. The menu is not that large so when they are out of things, it really limits what you can order. Our reservation was for 6:45PM so it was not as if it was really late which would explain why they might be out of certain things.

    Great experience! The restaurant is really charming. We had a pretzel and potato cheese balls for appetizers which were both excellent. Wheat beer on tap to go with them. We had cheese soup, sauerkraut, and carpaccio for dinner, and they were delicious. And although we were pretty full by then, we had apple strudel. Everything was just delicious. We had a great waiter (from Austria) who was very attentive, friendly, and made great recommendations. Can't recommend the restaurant enough! Make a reservation and sit outside if possible!

    We had to sit outside in Sep. A little chilly and we knew but they should have heaters, they do offer blankets which helps a little. Service was good at first but then started to get a little busy and we had to flag our waitress to order. Food came out VERY quickly. Beautiful presentation but seemed pre-made and got cold quickly. Not the best food. Our biggest issue came luckily toward the end. A couple walking by the restaurant stopped to smoke weed. No one asked them to leave or not smoke there so it became unbearable and we had to rush out leaving our food unfinished. The restaurant itself is so lovely and cute but our meal was ruined and unfortunately less then ideal.

    We were celebrating my 24th birthday! Loved the theme, the hostess and most staff were great, but our waitress ignored our table? We ordered appetizers, asked for some salt and pepper, and it took us about 20 minutes to get it. She would make eye contact with us, and then look away real quick. We tried to get her attention to order our entrees and she told us, “sorry, I didn’t know you wanted more food” and I just thought that was odd with it being the dinner hour and we started with one appetizer! The spatzle was cold, so I’m not sure if our dishes were forgotten about because it seemed like they were forgotten since we had to ask 40 minutes later where our entrees were, but the pesto pasta was delicious!

    Outstanding Vail restaurant for many years. We had another great Bavarian dinner last night. We were able to sit at the outdoor sitting area for Vail’s Octoberfest. The reception hostess was Bianca who is a perfect hostess for Alpenrose. She helped to make our Wedding Anniversary dinner a special occasion. Kudos to Bianca. Alpenrose is our favorite Vail restaurant.
