The Fitz Bar & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We had a great meal at The Fitz. We were expecting casual, and this place is cool. The brussel sprouts were off the charts good, the sous vide wings were amazing and my burger was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend catching a meal here when you are in Vail.
My husband and I dined at The Fitz for New Years Eve. I made a reservation months in advance and was called about 2 weeks before NYE by the restaurant to collect my deposit for a prefix dinner for $125. At that point it was going to be hard to find another reservation so I kept this reservation and paid the $125/person. The dinner was sub-par. Very basic salad, appetizer, and main dish. I had "lemon thyme" chicken.. which came in a beef au jus sauce. Very strange and unappetizing. They served one option for dessert... a chocolate cake that tasted like it has been dropped in a sink. Almost every table we saw bussed had full slices of chocolate cake left. Maybe that should have been a clue that dessert was NOT working for them. Our waitress was fairly useless and didn't even say hello when she approached our table initially. However, she got a $50 tip because the restaurant included a 20% gratuity on our bill. Needless to say paying over $300 for a disappointing dinner for two was not a GREAT end to our 2017.
I would NOT suggest the Fitz for a special occasion. Maybe their normal menu is better, but for a small restaurant it should be necessary to set a prefix for a holiday.
We loved The Fitz Bar & Restaurant! The dining room was beautiful and had a lovely view of the mountain and holiday lights outside. Service was terrific and my family enjoyed their meals. We went early so it was pretty quiet. We enjoyed the Brussels sprout app, halibut, chicken breast entree and my kids loved their kids’ steak and chicken tenders. Would go back next time in Vail!
Was awesome! Somewhat off the beaten path over in Manor Vail but well worth the 5-10 minute walk. The patio overlooking Ford Park and Gore Creek is wonderful place for summer dining. The hand crafted cocktails were amazing and the food was very very good. We had the heirloom tomato bruschetta, English pea salad and chicken. Everything was delicious and on point with their farm to table offerings. I would easily pick this location over Mountain Standard.
Early reservation at 5 in order to get to concert at 6. Not crowded, but service slow. Slow to get drink order, very slow to get food order. But it all worked out and the food and service, after the slow start, was great. Appetizer was hummus, enough for 2 and delicious! It was served in a totally unexpected way, and was extremely flavorful. We both had burgers, cooked exactly as ordered and also delicious. We will definitely go back.
Ive eaten here a few times over the last 2 weeks-It is close to Bravo,our classical music festival here in Vail, convenient. They had a VERY OFF night and can't handle a crowd. We had our apps brought to us-and it was burnt, then they brought our app out again, and it was the wrong one! I had to get up and look for someone who was managing the restaurant.We finally got the right one after 45 minutes. Then dinner finally showed up, salad with salmon, which was totally raw in the center.......when we sat down, we specifically said we had 1 1/2 hours to eat and walk out to make the show...we ended up running to get there on time. Oh, once we found the manager, he was nice, but the waitress want so nice! The comped the appetizer.
It was an aggravating dining experience
Restaurant was a little quiet but so was most of Vail due to time of season. Food was very good, waitress was very good and very accommodating to our 3 kids and us. Loved the decor and the view is unbeatable. Would definitely return and would check out the bar area.
Second time dining here with family. What a hidden gem! Easy parking in Manor Vail Lot just outside the restaurant. We came back for the yummy wings and this time had delicious onion rings too - both with homemade pickles. One of us had the steak special which was delicious and we had two of the salads on the menu and they were yummy. The atmosphere is comfy and nice ski- vibe with cool videos on giant screens and mellow music playing. Last year there was a live guitarist. Our server Payton was attentive and super delightful . We will gladly return when we are back in Vail.
The Fitz truly is a hidden gem in Vail. Located in the Manor Vail Lodge, the dining room is cozy with a giant fireplace, you feel right at home. In warmer weather, there is a great outdoor seating area as well. Everything was amazing from the wings and fried mozzarella to the burgers and pork shank. House-crafted cocktails were delicious - some fun twists on classics. Decent wine list, but small. Prices were pretty standard and comparable to other restaurants of the same caliber in Vail. As locals, we will definitely be recommending the Fitz to friends and visitors and will be returning ourselves again soon! Thanks for a great evening!
A very convenient nice restaurant to go to especially if you are staying in Manor Vail. I enjoyed a beet salad with steak and my husband had sea bass. We were a little surprised at our check, however, when they charged us $8 for bread! It was not on the menu as a side item. I asked the waitress if we could have some bread. She said yes but did not say anything about a charge for it. We assumed that most restaruants serve free with meals. I guess not.
Excellent restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner. It was cozy and romantic! The food was superb and the waitress was very helpful and attentive! The setting was at the foot of a ski slope in Vail, Colorado and gave us the feeling of being close to the action! In all, it was a wonderful night!
