Up The Creek Ratings and Reviews
It was a busy Saturday night so there was a bit of a wait but the staff handled it well. Our server, Jesse, was excellent, and, despite the busy restaurant, remembered the birthday at our table without being reminded. Very nice! Try to get a table away from the front door to avoid cold drafts.
We go to Vail every year and Up the Creek is our most frequented restaurant. We went twice this visit. The scallops are to die for and the last time we went I had the short rib. Delicious! I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorite salad is the Arugula with pears. Definitely add this restaurant to your list of musts.
Great cocktails! The entire meal was remarkable. We tried the arugula, beet and organic salads - all on point. We followed up with the braised short rib, trout and salmon; again all winners. Year after year we have up the creek on our list of places to dine during our annual trip to Vail - never disappoints.
A delicious menu with a gorgeous setting on Gore Creek. We had the soup of the day, an arugula salad, and mains of lamb chops and elk - both cooked to perfection and with creative complements. I had the elk, which was on a bed of risotto and brussel sprouts. Oh, did I mention their cocktails and wine?!? I had the ginger beet martini which is to die for, not too sweet. They also have a fantastic and well rounded wine list. Their dessert choices were mouth watering, but we behaved ourselves and shared three delicious scoops of lemon sorbet, vanilla ice cream and salted caramel ice cream (OK, almost behaved ourselves)
Longtime favorite. Perfect for an intimate dinner for two or a larger gathering with friends. The entees can be a bit on the heavy side - but a bowl of chicken tortilla soup and a crisp salad are perfect for a lighter meal. We always get the peach cobbler for dessert. Enjoy!
