What a hidden gem! Came here for dinner on a Friday night and we are already looking forward to a return visit. Dining out during a pandemic is always a gamble, but we hit the jackpot at The Fitz! We had no concerns over cleanliness, and social distancing and masks were enforced. The waitstaff was knowledgeable, attentive, and went above and beyond- our waiter even brought back an at-home recipe recommendation from the chef after I expressed how much I enjoyed the couscous that is served with the salmon. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts and cheese curds before dinner and both were phenomenal- and the cheese curds were a huge portion! For entrees, we were torn between nearly everything on the list- which rarely happens. After a recommendation from our server we decided with the salmon and the lamb, and did not regret it one bit. Both dishes were excellent and full of flavor- chef Kenny knows his stuff! Overall, between the delicious food and drink (with quite the extensive whiskey list!), the clear safety precautions taken, the five-star service from the staff, and the relaxed yet lively atmosphere, I think it is safe to say we have a new favorite restaurant in Vail.

The Fitz was a great spaced out patio area and dog friendly. Great food, drinks and service and felt very safe during COVID times as it is more of a private space off of the main village area.

The Fitz was a great choice for our dinner as Chef Kenny always does a great job. Service was outstanding and the ahi tuna nachos started us off perfectly. The salmon, shrimp, chicken and burger dishes we ordered hit the spot. We will be back!

This was our first stop for dinner after arriving in Vail. By the time I started looking there were few reservations available. Glad we found The Fitz and could get a table on the patio outside overlooking the creek. The food was exceptional and the service equally good. Definitely a do over.

Great patio dinner, while I've had a place in Vail since 1981, somehow I hadn't discovered the Fitz. It was delicious, high quality and had excellent service. Patio above the creek was delightful. Fitz Fashioned was one of the best old fashioned's I've had in Vail. Certainly will be back.

On a visit to Vail. Service was impeccable - And food was sublime. Add to that a view of the mountains with hummingbirds flitting around the flower planters along the balcony edge. Can’t really have a more idyllic experience. Enjoy!

We ate an early dinner with our 4 year old and our server was very nice and attentive. Cocktails (fitz-fashioned) and appetizers were spot on especially the Brussels sprouts. The entrees were just okay while my salmon was expertly cooked my asparagus so tough I could barely bite through it! We ordered the children's chicken sandwich which was was I guess cajun?? Still not sure what the spice rub was suppose to be but still way too many spices for a child's menu offering IMHO. Lastly my husband enjoyed his chicken karaage(sp?) salad however, the chicken was not cooked well and he felt like may have been microwaved but enjoyed the veggies and the dressing. All in all it was nice to outside with cocktails and nibbles and next time that is exactly what we would order.

The ambience on this patio is serene. The food was very good; the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because my husband’s steak was a little over done but that happens at a lot of places.
