    New restaurant with lovely service, great view and nice food. It is in the Manor Vail and is a hidden gem until people discover it.

    I am shocked that we were the only ones dining at 6pm. We were blown away by the excellent food, the beautiful new decor and the attentive service. Spicy margarita was yummy! We are from Chicago and eat alot of good meats… the Elk loin was the best piece of meat that my husband has ever eaten. My pork chop was cooked perfectly and seasoned right- served with delicious polenta and jam. My children shared the kids flat iron steak (10oz) and unlike other restaurants that treat children’s menu as a joke, they were served with a perfectly grilled medium steak. Overall this is a hidden gem and I highly highly recommend it.

    Solid, new, restaurant. Good service. Atmosphere nice. Liked the idea you can get sharable entrees. Always seem to eat too much at Apres...then hard to eat a full dinner. Liked the idea we could order 3 entrees for the 4 of us. Ordered the flat iron steak and the elk loin. Both were good. Also they do a nice wedge salad

    Ridge + River is such an upgrade from the restaurant that was in Manor Vail before. The remodeled dining room is very pretty and the huge windows give a lovely view of the mountains. Our server was just right -- helpful, attentive but not annoying. I had just the special asparagus soup and a salad because we had had a big lunch and the soup was especially excellent. My friend also enjoyed her meal. The menu had a nice variety. Manor Vail is off the beaten path a bit but well worth a few minutes walk. Try it out. They've really upped their game.

    Food was fabulous! But they need to dim the lights and turn down the music a bit.

    Lovely atmosphere, & mountain view with fireplace perfect for food lovers. Comfortable seating & chance to really talk without a lot of noise. Service was exceptional. Sommelier on hand for wine recommendations with an extensive list & great house choices . All the food was elegantly presented & very tasty . Pork chops were exceptional with a wonderful polenta & asparagus. Wild tuna with a chipotle broth was delicious & different. We also enjoyed the generous sized salads & I loved the fresh beet & orange salad with fennel & goat cheese but the wedge & Caesar were also great. We were excited on this new find!

    Wonderful food with great variety in the menu. They even had a good kids menu if you are dining with littles. Everything was cooked to perfection and had wonderful flavor. Fine display of local Colorado ingredients. Great wine list that isn’t too overpriced. The dining room feels a bit stark but the food and spacing of the tables made our table still feel intimate. Great off the beaten path dining experience!
