The Fitz is a great spot to dine near Golden Peak. It is a little out of the way located at Manor Vail on Vail Valley Drive. The food and service were both amazing! Take the time to check it out, you won't be disappointed.
Meal was above average, not outstanding. We had burgers for the entree. The appetizers were the best part...Brussels sprouts and a superfood salad. The service was underwhelming. Waitress was nice, but she disappeared from the dining area for extended periods of time. The restaurant wasn't very crowded and it's a small venue anyway. Based on the food, I would try this place again. Hopefully, the service issue was isolated with the individual waitress.
We stopped here on Christmas night. We were looking for a place where we could celebrate the day with some top-quality food, but where it would also be ok for our kids to be in their comfy car clothes. This couldn't have been more perfect for us. A great bar menu and some interesting entrees made my husband and I feel the meal was up to the occasion, and as for the kids, well, my son said it was the best burger he's had in Colorado. The staff was so friendly and welcoming to us, even though we were late customers on a holiday, and so overall it was truly a great experience. We'll definitely be back on our next I-70 journey!
Pleasantly surprised to see the renovated Fitz Bar and Restaurant. Very cool industrial modern spaces. They need just a bit of art or rugs and better lighting to warm the place up. Food is high end pub food. New menu with burgers and salads (same menu for bar and restaurant). The old Fitz quesadilla was not on the menu (please bring that back for the kids). Service was quite rushed and the timing was slightly off for food delivery. I have a feeling the wait staff was working the bar AND the restaurant. We received 4 out of the 5 meals we ordered, and the server did not return to check on us. We finally went up to the bar and asked for the missing meal (which had been forgotten) and they delivered and comp'd it so that was nice. I would definitely go back there and give it another try.
We vacation in Vail often and generally stick to a short list of restaurants we've cultivated over the years. We found The Fitz on Open Table, and with no reviews, took a chance...so glad we did! The food was fabulous...fresh, cooked to perfection, & well presented. Started with the beet and goat cheese salad and the burrata flat bread....the 2 alone would have been a meal. We then followed with the grilled cheese with date spread...delicious...and the grilled chicken sandwich...also great. For dessert we enjoyed the carrot cake served in a jar. The Fitz is a newly renovated, attractive space in Manor Vail, located near Golden Peak, and easily accessible using the in town bus. Choose to dine either in the large bar area with table seating or the dining room with mountain views. TVs are available in both spaces. It opens at 3 pm for apres ski and continue service through the dinner hour. We will be returning. Highly recommend.
