This restaurant is on the mountain in Vail. With a reservation we were treated rudely by all FIVE hosts and hostesses. In particular James, who stood staring at his computer, told us we could not be seated by the window as he had another party for the table who had not arrived. When we would not relent stating we were there with a reservation, he finally let us sit by the window. It was a beautiful bluebird day so it was important to us to enjoy the view. Within minutes, the two tables on either side of us by the windows emptied and remained so for the next hour of our lunch. The food was fine, nothing to write about. The servers were very nice, attentive and pleasant once you get beyond the hosts. It was not very crowded at all, so I can only imagine what a horror show it would become when busy.

Still excellent after years. Have tried most of the menu and never had anything bad. Tomato/red pepper soup (heavy on the pepper flavor) very good. Papardelle, flatbreads are excellent. Good fries, burgers. Risotto is decent, crab cake sandwich a bit too heavy on bread. Ginger whipped cream makes the doughnut dessert. Moet by the glass. Beautiful, high-ceilinged dining room with great views of Mid-Vail, large coat room with slippers to wear. Most staff very nice, a bit confusing as to who is the primary server sometimes.

You would never, ever go there if it weren't for the mid-vail location and slippers. Nonetheless, it is in mid-vail and they do have slippers. Food is adequate, service defines arrogant and condescending, prices outrageous but, they are in mid-vail and they do have slippers. Will admit that they have a nice bloody.

The dining experience was very enjoyable starting with slippers if you don't want to wear your ski boots. Every dish was delicious, from the appetizers to the main course to deserts, and the presentation was outstanding. Our waiter, Kyle was great! The views of the Gore mountain range topped off the whole experience for us. It was easy to make reservations online, which we were glad to have done.

I have been here many times but this was the most disappointing. Lettuce of salad was wilted, mozzarella was over the hill and unappetizing. Carpaccio was expensive, tiny and just so so.

Fantastic spot for mid-day refreshing. Service is truly remarkable. Pricey, but well worth it for fantastic food, gorgeous views , and very attentive service. Not for everyday lunch on the mountain. But a must go to at least once during a trip.

I always enjoy eating at The Tenth. I always try to eat there at least once when I am in town skiing at Vail. Located at mid-Vail, The Tenth provides a calming and nourishing reprieve from a hard day on the slopes. I had the special, a short rib sandwich with their own barbeque sauce, and a delicious house cole slaw, rendered with just the right amount of shredded brussel sprouts. And for dessert we shared the butternut squash doughnuts, with heavy whipped cream flavored with real maple syrup. It was absolutely superb. And of course, our waitress Kathleen was simply wonderful, she had waited on us last year, and we were delighted to have her wait on us again this year.

The 10th has amazing service, food and views. We are greeted by name and the service is fast. The menu has many favorites and there is always something new. Everything I have tried is amazing. Today's favorites from our group were the onion and mushroom soup, pot pie, bloody Mary's and of course the truffle fries. I highly recommend it.

The staff of The 10th provided me with a wonderful birthday celebration of Cava sparkling wine, birthday cake, etc. This was on top of the wonderful service and food. What a beautiful gesture! It was totally unexpected and much appreciated. Steve and Nick took excellent care of my wife and myself. The hostess put us in the best table.
All in all I would say The 10th is a 10 in my book!

Great 1st time at 10th. We're able to get in earlier than our reservation which was great since skis are off and ready for lunch. Beautiful setting of course at Mid-Vail. Views glorious.
Food delicious-service great. Good recommendations from our server. Salad and flatbread delicious 😋
A bit pricey $100 lunch for 2 with starter and only 1 beer.
Worth it in the end. We went for the experience and it was 5-star.

My son and I were super tired from several days of skiing at Vail and Beaver Creek, so we decided to take a long lunch. We made reservations, which is a must, and arrived a few minutes early to take advantage of taking our boots off and changing to slippers. The 10th is suprisingly large, it is not an intimate restaurant, but it does have terrific views from all sides. We thoroughly enjoyed our casual lunch fare, including truffle fries, onion soup and an antipasto flatbread. The prices are a bit high, but the service is very attentive, the location is prime and the comfort is sublime.

Early lunch with my wife during a day of skiing. Great location (close to gondola & Mid-Vail chairs). Great menu; good value for a sit down restaurant. Service was excellent. Reservation recommended; pretty busy over the lunch hour. Recommend the Chili &Flatbreads.

We have been going to the 10th since it opened. The service, food, and ambiance are what kept us coming back. We were there for a 50th birthday with a large group. The waitress was the absolute WORST. She was unattentive, brought us the wrong food, and charged us for things we didn't order. I believe it was because the gratuity was included. Such a disappointment.

Family of 5 (kids 11, 9 and 8) ate for lunch with reservations the week between Christmas and New Years. The ambiance was stellar, especially compared to trying to find 5 seats and go through a line anywhere else on the mountain. The latter experience feels worse than Disney world. We were seated with a view, great bar tender, kids meals include dessert. I got the Cobb salad with bass-delicious and small; perfect. My husband got the elk chili, also small and excellent. Meal was proceeded with bread and we ordered the awesome truffle fries to start. Book way in advance and if you are eating on the mountain each day--book here every day. Vail is too crowded to eat peacefully on the mountain with out a reservation. This meal took almost 2 hours, which is the only real negative. Service very slow.

LOVED LOVED LOVED having lunch at the 10th during a day of skiing! It was my birthday that day and the staff went out of there way to not only make me feel special, but our whole party as well! The soups were delicious, the bisque had at least a whole tail of lobster chunks, if not more. I've had truffle fries everywhere, and these by far were the best I have ever had. My husband and I split the Pot Pie and it was so delicious, and large enough for both of us. The high point is putting on slippers after a morning of ski boots, and the VIEW! It is expensive, but something you should enjoy if you are skiing on Vail Mountain!!!

This is a must do for lunch for Vail first timers! After a morning of skiing (not well I might add) it was nice to be welcomed to remove all your snowy ski gear and boots and slip into some comfy slippers courtesy of the 10th. We had a wonderful view of the mountain while we ate. I started out with their house-made hot chocolate...so good!

Have eaten here a few times, and was happy to bring my date to impress her.

Her meal was fantastic. As for me, I am now eating Gluten Free and I would say there were some challenges...the kitchen provided basket of bread which was pre-packaged UDI bread and not homemade which was expected from such a nice restaurant. Further, I was excited to order the truffle flatbread on a GF crust. Unfortunately, it was terrible...completely overcooked, brown, brittle, and very hard/sharp to chew. Cannot believe I paid $18 for that.

Mediocre food did not justify the very high price. Soup was brought at same time as entrees, so food was cold. Many dogs at other tables. Side of fruit was 3 not very good slices of watermelon. Veggie sandwich was uninspired. Asked if I could have either of 2 vegetarian entrees without yellow squash and waiter said no. For 2 of us, spent $76.00 plus $34 for the lift ride, and the food was on a par with a hospital cafeteria.

The scene on at the top of the gondola is amazing. Unfortunately, the food and service wasn't the same. Unlike the winter experience we had, this was disappointing. The hostess seemed agitated. The menu (for the summer) seemed limited compared to the ski season and the service stretched. Maybe someone didn't show up?

Very expensive as you must buy a lift ticket for each person eating at the restaurant. However, the view is breathtaking and certainly worth the trip up the mountain. Food is only fair although we thought the flatbread options very good. Wagyu hamburger very poor, very expensive, and question whether really the high grade beef. Service people very pleasant but not overly skilled. We sat inside and must say, the addition of the outside deck detracted from our glorious mountain view.
