    The Fitz is a quiet spot that is about a 10 minute walk out of Vail Village. It is not central to the village or close to anything else. When we arrived, 3 gas cylinders were out and they could not heat the patio. Someone eventually change out a cylinder and they were able to turn on a heater. The had said they had run out of the wine we chose and also our second choice, however found our original choice. The shared starters were good and we ordered a salad and mains.However, as soon as our salad arrived, our mains also arrived. Timing was not great. Food was overall tasty but would likely not return because of location and service.

    I am gluten free, asked for no croutons in my salad. Half way through I discover an errant crouton under the lettuce. I pointed it out to the server who didn’t seem to understand that this contamination could have been a big problem for someone with celiac. It represents a very sloppy kitchen and I won’t return.

    We made reservations for our anniversary. When we showed up three people walked right by us and did not even acknowledge that we were there waiting at the hostess table. When my husband finally fled somebody down she gave me just a minute finger and somebody else came over. They never once acknowledged it was our anniversary but did seat us at a nice table. We had to flag down someone to actually take our order. He was very polite but obviously rushed. Food came out quickly and was decent, I would give the food for stars. We had the flag down someone again to get our bill, no one ever check to see how things were once our food arrived. The location is absolutely beautiful, but there are so many tables jam together that you could hear everybody’s conversations around you. Definitely an OK place if you’re not in a hurry, you’re not celebrating anything special, and you just want alcohol and good munchies.

    The food was mediocre at best and really overpriced. The portions were small and expensive and my entree didn’t have anything that was listed in the menu description of the dish. The music was sad and dreary. Would not recommend.

    Truly a tale of two cities. Food and drinks were great but service was awful. We waited 40 minutes and our server to check on us. Went to the front and complained and still took 10 minutes.

    The Fitz delivers a positive experience! Parking for the GRFA is great. I am willing to pay $20, get 20% off dinner, and a short, pretty walk to the amphitheater. Food is very good, well prepared. For the past 2 dinners , Catalin was our server. Although new to the country and The Fitz, he was delightful and efficient. I'll be back!

    We enjoyed returning to a nice pre-concert restaurant with an excellent menu. It was especially nice to chat with your new Manager. The main complaint is the horrible and uber- loud “music.” It was difficult to talk at our table. On concert nights especially, the musical direction should be soft and mature. Classic Jazz would work well.

    This place is great for families or a low key dinner. We had the steak frites and I think there are better spots in Vail to have a steak. The queso birria was amazing! Great kids menu. Great cocktails and wine! Service was awesome as well!

    Servers where sitting inside chit chatting had to get up multiple times to ask for things. We’re out of some items and weren’t told until we tried to order them. Spicy Mayo on a dish referred to as “dragon sauce”. Salad dressing was watery and relatively flavorless. A decent spot for a bite but nothing was great

    The Fitz offers a fun and diverse menu at very reasonable prices. A bit off the beaten path at the Manor Vail, east of Town, its a delightfully quiet setting. To make matters better, the service was perfect: attentive and appropriately understated!

    We were seated in the restaurant side and it was perfect. The fireplace was lit, scenery was beautiful, and we ended up having it all to ourselves for most of our dinner. We started with crab cakes, and got duck and a lobster roll to share for our entree - highly recommend all of it! The drinks were also fantastic and great service.

    Beautiful deck. Food was average. Mostly disappointed that my salad was poor. The greens were bitter and my chicken was undercooked. I was still hungry when we left. Also, they didn't have a popular brand of alcohol that I ordered. Otherwise it was good.

    Great outdoor setting. Food was good but not great. Good value because at least they didn’t over charge you for the quality. 6 people under $200 is incredibly difficult to achieve in Vail. They could up their bar high-end liquor selection and offer a few additional items that were healthier and less “chain” restaurant tasting.

    Food was merely ok, soup and grilled cheese was the best, unfortunately we had a bad experience as all the meat sauce was spilled all over my daughter, and she got really upset by that, server did the minimum to apologize to her, and the other team members just looked from the side. I was amazed by the lack of interest of the other server to help on a big party table like us. But when the check was ready she was fast enough to get it in no time. Place was nearly empty and food took long and service was not what I was expecting. Don’t think I’ll come back.

    So clearly just not the best presentation nor sophistication in culinary artistry. You can tell they want to appear profound and edgy yet fall very short IMO. I will say the steak with bearnaise sauce was quite good though. The fish just blew to high heaven and how do you screw up potatoes au-gratin?

    Great spot for classic American fare (steaks, chops, fish). Food consistent and good - but not a "foodie joint" Bar menu is very good. But most important - our server Jess was five-star all-world friendly and helpful. Would go again.
