We had dinner on a Friday night. Place is really nice at great location. Service was very good and wine list is good (not many options but good). Food was a bit disappointing. 5 people at our party ordered different entrees and the gnocchi was the only one really flavorful. Coq au vin had almost no sauce.

We dined at Vintage on New Year's Day 2018. The restaurant was very quiet, which suited us just fine. They took our coats as we entered and showed us to the table. The food was French and fairly traditional in names of dishes, but there was a twist to the execution!

I had escargot (snails), followed by seared scallops. My wife had Boeuf Bourginon. The escargot I usually have are cooked and then placed in large shells in a dish containing melted garlic butter. This was the escargot without the shells but in a sort of garlic mayonnaise. It was lovely.

For the main courses, mine was very good, but my wife's was exceptional. Not a stew, but more a new interpretation of the dish. The meat was a single chunk, about the size of a fist, and then there were dashes of gravy and vegetables around it. It all tasted beautiful.

I followed by a small Creme Brulee, which was small and just right.

We had a bottle of Fleurie wine, which was $56 and about the cheapest in the house. There were plenty for several hundred $'s.

We arrived about 7 minutes early and were told that we could not be seated until exactly 7pm so we headed to the bar. It took about 10 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us even though the bar seats were mostly vacant. We ordered a bottle of wine and it appeared about 5 minutes later so that was good. At about 7:20 the hostess said she could finally seat us....we decided to just stay at the bar. It took forever to get our food but we noticed that the young woman who sat down next to us had wine and a meal in about 5 minutes. The bartender companied twice about how busy he was. Seriously, don't you hate when someone in the service industry makes their problem your problem?? After all that we thought "well if the food is awesome than that will compensate for the poor service". Alas, the food was fair. My husband liked his pork salad and wagyu steak. I thought my pear salad was mediocre and the beef bourguignon which was supposed to be their house specialty was fair. So many great restaurants in Vail...not gonna go back to Vintage.

We had a horrible dinner at Vintage. It didn’t help that because of a large group was there we had to wait for an hour for our appetizers. The cheese and meat board was very good and the onion soup was good as well. The main course was super disappointing, $50 for cold soggy fries, tiny piece of meat and watery bearnaise sauce. My wife had scallops which were well cooked but rest of the dish didn’t make any sense. Overall, I would not go again or recommend to a friend.

Location was great. Food was fantastic. Service was outstanding. The only issue we had was being charged for a dab of whip cream after we had already gotten our bill and the tab was nearly $500. They took our bill back and added $4 more to it. What was a great Christmas Eve dinner turned into an okay dinner. We had planned on leaving a 30% tip, but after that we cut it back to 20%.

The main courses were outstanding. We had the beef bourguignon and the mussels. Both were great.The bison tartare was ok, but not great. Less taste than regular tartare and served too cold which detracts from the flavor. We had a side of mushrooms which was average. We did have a very reasonably priced bottle of red wine which was quite good. Service very good, and the place has a really nice ambience.

We went there for a date night in Vail, Daniel our bartender also ended up being our waiter and was nothing Short of fantastic. The food was amazing-better than other restaurants we had eaten in Vail on that weekend which cost twice as much-and the handcrafted cocktails were mind blowing. We are from Boulder and live in a very foodie town, so you might say we are a bit picky. I would recommend vintage without hesitation to anyone.

Difficult call unfortunately. Had brunch there one day while they were busy and we had a good waiter, tasty Bloody Marys and a very nice brunch. The huckleberry French toast is especially good. The poached eggs on the meat and potato smash Benedict were cooked solid. But overall, not a bad experience so we booked a table for 4 and invited Friends to join us the next evening. Only a few tables occupied. Service was not good. They were out of the two best selections on the menu and had we know this we might not have bothered. Our waitress seemed barely interested. The food was okay but nothing to brag about. Granted it was early November and many places were closed BUT this place didn’t make any effort to make a good impression. I guess I give it a 4 overall for brunch and barely a 2 for dinner. I would NOT recommend.

We decided to go out on Sunday night and thought we would give Vintage a try. Boy, are we sorry that it was our first visit. It was one of the most delightful meals we have had in Vail, and we cannot wait to go back. (Since becoming empty nesters, we moved to Vail full time and dine out a fair amount.)

Located in the former Kelly Lieken space at the roundabout at Vail Road and the Frontage Road easily accessible walking from Vail Village or Lionshead as well as onsite guest parking. Unique in Vail as a facsimile of a true French Bistro with the standard fare of genre from steak frites to frogs legs escargot. Yet less traditional available as well including fish and vegetarian oriented dishes.

While there are multiple French restaurants in the Vail Valley, most are more formal (as formal as Vail can be) where as Vintage provides a more casual vibe with its limited menu yet bountiful enough that most diners will be satisfied.

Excellent cocktail menu again with some truly French inspired concoctions not usually found outside of major cities. Decent beer and wine selection as well.

Apps are varied from the traditional French as mentioned to more standard fare including a delectable looking Charcuterie which seems to be popular and can easily be shared by 3-4 persons.

The steak frites was a true rendition of the traditional dish using a hanger cut which while tougher is more flavorful as the cut is adjacent to organs within the cow. The frites true French including variations including truffle. Sauces are available as well including sauce bernasie.

Again the location is easily accessible yet is not in the heart of Vail Village yet that is part of the appeal. While at the round-about you also feel somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of the Vail core and welcoming especially during busy weekends and high season.

It was good - but not great. Coffee was good; cocktails were creative. Service was fine. The chicken and pancakes were TASTY!! But don't ask for syrup... $3 extra for a spoonful (really?). The BLT Benedict was drowned in avocado cream sauce. The Salmon Benedict was way too salty. The 'smashbrowns' were just odd. So, some good some not good. Glad we tried it. May return for drinks - and the chicken and pancakes.

We were just walking about to find a place and saw this quaint comfortable but elegant busy restaurant. What a wonderful surprise - every course of our meal just got better and better; absolutely delicious! The proprietor was genuine as well as the servers - this is now my favorite go-to place. Oh, and the cocktails and wine list is nicely selected - found my "hard to find" favorite wine right on the list - someone else has good taste. Ha! If you haven't been here in awhile - give it another try (they have a new chef and he is superb). We are glad we discovered it for dinner.
