We enjoy eating at Northside whenever we are in the Vail valley. Food is consistently good. The menu is large and the service is always good. Daily fresh breads, donuts and baked goodies are available in the morning and breakfast before skiing is a great option.

They called us the day before and said they had had some trouble in the kitchen and the kitchen would not be open for dinner that evening.....so we went elsewhere.

I have been to the Northside Kitchen 3 times in the last month, it is just not as good as it has been.
Service could use improvement. Food presentation is not as nice. I love the tuna appetizer, this summer it was on a long dish with a nice presentation. This past time chips were piled on a round dish with the tuna on top....little effort went in to plating . Wine prices are excessive.....unless someone wants to pat $21.00 for a 9 ounce pour of MEIOMI. I told the waiter it was too high, you can buy the bottle at Costco for $17...he said I should go to Costco . Maybe I’ll go some where else for dinner.

Food was so-so, and waiter (although sweet!) didn’t know what haricots verts were. Prime rib tasted like it had freezer burn, and fish wasn’t fresh.

As a party of seven on a Sunday evening, we were surprised after we ordered that the kitchen was out of prime rib. Three of our party needed to change their order. For desert, four of our party had to change their order after already placing their order. Both showed a lack of communication between the kitchen and the server. In addition, the asparagus was not properly cooked. End result, what we did have was tasty and well presented. We were disappointed, given the above separated us from over $350.00 for the meal. Will we come back? Likely. Atmosphere is fine for casual/business casual and the food was, for the most part, above average.

Great little “sleeper” restaurant for dinner. Food was first class. Cloth table clothes, fresh flowers and wait staff dressed professionally. Always a great place for breakfast and lunch, but equally as good for dinner!

This is the 3rd time we had dinner at Northside and would always rate the experience as good. The last time we had dinner there this past weekend my soup was cold and the Halibut was very dry. It was not a busy night either. Our friends from out of town thought it was just ok. Simple meals should be delicious.

This was our first time trying Northside Kitchen - we've been enjoying burgers next door for years and decided to make NK part of my husband's birthday vacation this year. Overall we enjoyed our food but our server did make the experience less enjoyable. When he arrived at our table, he did not tell us about the specials or ask us if we had been in before but instead asked us if we were ready to order. He seemed to rush us through our nice night out. I did enjoy the salmon but my husband's medium filet came out rare and when we sent it back it came back medium rare. Our server never came back to ask if it was better the second time but simply brought the check. Normally we would have called over a manager but since we were celebrating we decided to just cut our losses and keep the mood light. For a $100 meal, this experience was a bit of a let down. We will try it again but it will be awhile.

Food and service were excellent. I liked that you had a choice of a 6 oz glass or a 9 oz glass of wine and they had a great variety of wine available by the glass and their bottle prices were very moderately priced.

this restaurant wa s a big surprise. Dinners are 39.95for a three course meal with a few upgrades. this was a great deal for the money. Many choices for pleasure who do not eat meal. the portions were good size.the halibut was outstanding and a huge portion. The lamb shank was a C+. Order the pork chop instead. Typical of Colorado restaurants the wine list was B- and overpriced . In a state that does allow you to bring wine in you usually gat taken with price. All in all would go back tomorrow.

Found Northside Kitchen on open table. We've had places in Vail area for the past 10 years, but we had never been here before. The reviews were great so decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Food was excellent, brought timely, and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We took advantage of their 3 course special. Both of us had the caesar salad. I had the pistachio encrusted lamb chops, and my husband had the lamb shank. Portions were very generous so we had leftovers to take home. Yum!! Great wine list as well. Both of us had desert. Very enjoyable evening.

This was our second meal at Northside. The staff is truly hospital—they make dining out so enjoyable! I like be food preparations that are special and there are many options that are prepared quite well. They do have a kids menu and a brief list of well balanced seasonal cocktails. You will not regret choosing Northside!
