Great burger on a pretzel bun, yummy Bloody Mary, good service even though there was a private party going on. Don't think they ever checked me in however because I never got my points.

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.

We selected The Fitz while on vacation for dinner. It was a delightful experience. The menu is not large, but all of the entrees sounded very creative and enticing. The butternut squash ravioli was the absolute best I've ever had.

One of the best views in Vail, paired with modern comfort food. The chef creates a menu of classics with a twist. It's the last bus stop in Vail, off the beaten path and despite the great food and drinks, not crowded.

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!

The restaurant was half full on a Wednesday night around 8:00 pm. It took 15 minutes to get menus. Although the waitress was very nice, we sat for another 15 minutes and did not see her, or any other staff. We gave up and left.

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!

Taryn was a rock star! She was the host and the wait staff was slammed with a large party. She absolutely took over and gave us incredible service and suggestions for food and wine. The wait staff was great when they could break away and check on us as well. Food was very innovative and we enjoyed our evening very much. I can't compliment Taryn enough. To the owner of Fitz...you did well with that hire. She's going to shine!

Great spot. Our server was friendly and helpful- her recommendations were perfect. The brussel sprouts were delicious, enough to be a meal. Generous portion of dry rub wings. Good pub burger. Nice wine selection... We were there for a quiet birthday dinner. It was everything we could have hoped for. We plan to come back!
