Sweet Basil is right on the pedestrian mall in Vail Village. Lot's of restaurants around, but this is a special one: Waiter was very attentive, explained specials well, chilled our wine! Varied menu, reasonably priced, remember we are in Vail Village. We also visited their sister restaurant, Mountain Standard and it was great, too, overlooking Gore Creek.

One of the best restaurants in Colorado. Exceptional service. Exceptional food. Bar area where you enter is very active and very loud, and the dining area is also very active and always busy. But those are the signs of great establishments. We were there for their 40-year anniversary. East to see why this restaurant has been around for so long.

Made reservations in advance and requested a specific windowside table when I stopped by in person earlier in the day. However, table request was not accommodated. Food was very good and portions were ok but not huge. Reasonable prices for Vail. Excellent tableside service.
