Tapas / Small Plates
Set in the heart of Vail Village, just off the pedestrian corridor, Leonora offers an inviting dining experience inspired by the French Alps, Spanish Pyrenees and our own Colorado Rockies. Using only the finest fresh, local and organic ingredients, the menu is designed as a tapas experience, one where diners embark with shareable small plates, progressing to larger plates which revere alpine flavors including Colorado lamb pops, local steaks and more. Flavorful dishes are simply prepared and thoughtfully paired with wines from around the world. Our sommelier's handpicked selections are sourced from traditional and unexpected places, each selected to complement Executive Chef Kevin Erving’s playful yet sophisticated menu. Reservations highly recommended.

    Leonora was amazing. The staff was incredible- Lance and their GM were so friendly and welcoming. We had our 15 month old and they bent over backwards to accommodate us. We had the pork belly (not to be missed!), ceviche, poke, Brussels and the 18oz bone in Buffalo ribeye. The kids mac and cheese was also excellent. Drinks were on point. I cannot say enough good things about this meal. Don't miss this if in Vail!

    The food was absolutely delicious- some of the best we've had in Vail, but the staff is what really made our experience extra special! The Sommelier Garrett was knowledgeable and friendly- we enjoyed great wines and cocktails at a reasonable price! Our server Will was very attentive and made us feel comfortable and welcome throughout our experience. They had a unique kids menu that made our 6 year old daughter feel "extra fancy" and allowed her to have her own culinary experience (something that is rare when it comes to kid's menus)! We will absolutely be dining at Leonora again! They really went the extra mile with both food and service! Highly recommend!!

    We went for Mother’s Day brunch. Unfortunately the host didn’t explain brunch included bottomless mimosas and he also didn’t offer us a high chair or booster seat despite our reservation requesting one. Not a great welcome but everything after was nice. Didn’t learn mimosas were included until we got the check. Oh well. Great food. Waitstaff was attentive and helpful.

    LeonoraResponded on May 12, 2022Thank you very much for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that the start to your meal didn't meet expectations but we are pleased to know that the rest of the morning went well. I will share your comments with the team and hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

    The Leonora offers guests a unique and delicious take for tapas dining. We found each of our dishes--albondigas, shrimp, and hummus-- masterfully prepared with just the right amount of spices to move the dish to an extraordinary level. The service is good, and the circular layout is pretty and eye-catching, but the creativity of the chef is what makes Leonora worth visiting again and again.

    We’ve been to Leonora a number of times but last night was disappointing. Love their tapas menu but they offered less interesting choices and the quality was not up to previous visits. Will return in the summer where hopefully we can forget about last night.

    Sort of a local favorite - secret spot - the tapas style is a great way to nosh w/friends and try some different preparations. The entree selection is very good - good steak, fish & pastas. Highlight might be the wine tower and what's inside! The sommelier is very knowledgable and provided us w/2 excellent varietals that we would have missed had we not asked for his help.

    Leonora is a great place for small plates. It's a casual bar setting with really good food. Caesar Salad is great... a bit of a different twist on it with saffron in the dressing. Shishito peppers and octopus are both excellent appetizers. Elk Chop is really done well, and the Churros are amazing for dessert.

    The food was adequate but not outstanding by any means. We ordered lamb lollipop (nothing special), meatballs (too much sauce and ketchupy), shishito peppers (lots of aioli), chorizo reminded me of old El Paso. This place has potential but I feel they are in a rut. Service was excellent!
