Excellent food as always, But beware prices have gone up around 30%... I think I would’ve preferred to know there was a Covid mark up ahead of time... Even an 8 ounce filet was around $63 whereas before it was 45 to 50.

Creative menu with high quality food. I've heard they are converting to more of a steakhouse focused establishment. If the Steak Frites is any indication of the type of steak and chops they'll be serving then A+!!

This restaurant is taking zero steps to promote social distancing. Every table in the restaurant is being used and the space between us and neighboring tables was under 3ft.

Fall Line does not follow any Covid guidelines. My table was less than three feet from the table on both sides. People were packed into bar there was absolutely no social distancing between people. Hopefully I don't get sick!

First the good news: They were open during Mud Season. That's about all I can say. The food was below average, with the lobster roll being especially bad. It's also overpriced, even for Vail.

As for dining during COVID, this is not the place. We showed up early and were seating with not too many people around, but by the time we finished, it was a normal packed restaurant. The table next to us was 2ft. away at best and there was plenty of other space in an empty part of the restaurant. Just seems like something that could have easily been avoided, but was poorly managed.

You are making a mistake if you can't find a better option than this place.

Unfortunately this was our worst experience in Vail. This place is super cozy and adorable. I am a very laid back customer as my husband and I have both waited tables. I rarely get frustrated but this service was some of the worst I’ve ever seen. Rooms forever to even put in drink orders and food took over 50 minutes to get our food. We arrived at 7:15, saw server around 7:35, ordered around 745 and food arrived at 8:35. Approximate capacity was probably 30% so they weren’t even busy. Server was very lackadaisical and never once apologized for the terrible service. Two out of four of us were celebrating our birthday dinner and we all walked out super disappointed by this event! We started asking around town, and seemed to be well known for similar complaints

We had a horrible experience at fall Line. The service was absolutely awful. The manager was rude. It took 40 minutes to get our drinks. Not one person in our party finished their entree because the food was gross. Only thing we enjoyed was a cheese board. Overall a huge waste of money for mediocre food and some of the worst service I’ve ever experienced. I would never eat here again.

Fall Line Kitchen and Cocktails paved the way for our after-ride meal. The cheese plate paired with Prosecco was fantastic, and enough cheese, fruit, and crackers for at least 2, maybe even 4. Waiting for arrival of main entree was longer than anticipated with bison burger and fries excellent and half-chicken good but spicy. The noise level on the patio was driven by pedestrians on cobble-stone traffic and live music at bar across the way. Excellent, attentive service. Clean restrooms.

Some discomfort with lack of 6 foot physical distancing with table arrangements and bar overflow that restricted easy access to restroom.

Where to begin? Amazing food, drinks, and service. If you want to try cool funky cocktails, this is the place for you!

Cheese plate was terrific, autumn squash soup and fried Brussels sprouts are to die for!

Great value as well for central Vail. Will definitely return soon.

We went to dinner here last night as we had dined here a few years ago and thought the food was decent. Unfortunately last night the food was not up to par. Our apps (cheese board and marinated olives) were tasty but the main course (lobster roll & steak frites) was not good. The fries were way over salted, the steak was chewy and the lobster roll was mainly bread. It was not your traditional lobster roll with mayo but had a side of melted butter to dip it in. Had it not been for the patio seating & live music we got to hear next door it would have been even less enjoyable.
