We are locals and have had dinner here several times a year. Vista has the best ambiance in the Valley. Mickey's piano music coupled with tables that are not crammed together gives the best dining experience. It's worth the drive from anywhere. Staff is friendly and helpful.

My husband and another couple went here for dinner while on vacation! The minute we walked in we were greeted by a lovely hostess who took our coats. We sat at the bar for a wine before dinner and the bartender couldn’t have been more friendly. We then were sat next to a roaring fireplace which was so nice. Our waitress was fabulous. Total attention to detail. Food was fabulous! We will go back next time we are in that area. Highly recommend!

The Vista is truly one of the best experiences in the entire Vail Valley. The food is absolutely fantastic, the ambiance is just right and the piano music is such a refreshing change from the usual music feeds that we can all get on our phones anymore. Hopefully the Vista will remain an established institution for dining in Arrowhead.

Not impressed . The service was slow and the food was not prepared correctly. I had salmon that was over cooked and my sons steak was chewy and fatty. Fairly expensive restaurant but not worth it.

My wife and I ate at Vista for Christmas dinner. We have dined here 3 times before, and always enjoyed the great food and great service. The dining room is very comfortable, and relatively quiet, although there is usually live piano music and singing by a long time local.

I had the chicken pot pie, which is very good and quite large. It was tasty, but could have had a thicker sauce. My wife tried the braised lamb shank and loved it. It was served with a large wedge of goat cheese polenta and Brussel sprouts (a bit under cooked for her liking). Dessert was a sampler of the homemade donuts and an apple tatin with gelato...both delicious. All in all, a great meal with great service.

Vista is also excellent for lunch, and the outdoor dining patio is a hit. It’s on a golf course, so a great location for summer patio dining, Very large sandwiches (I recall having a nice club sandwich this past summer). This place is worth the somewhat out of the way location. In my mind, much better than many of the over-hyped restaurants in Vail and Beaver Creek.

Vista was recommended by our friends - we hadnt been in a while, thinking in error that the menu was mostly steak house. We were pleasantly surprised by a menu long on seafood and the ability to craft a meal to your liking. Service was very good - really the only miscue was that the food servers didnt know who had ordered what - as well as knowledgeable and professional. One particularly complex order was handled perfectly. Quality of the seafood was excellent, portions well-sized, prepared just right. We will definitely be back soon.

We arrived at 5:30 for an early dinner and got a 25% discount on the entrees(nice touch). The food was very tasty. Several of us had the braised short-ribs which were presented well and flavored well. Service was good and the valet parking came in handy since it was raining that evening. Very nice view across the valley. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

The Vista is the restaurant st The Country Club of the Rockies in Avon Colorado( near Beaver Creek, Edwards and Vail) . It is open to the public. Reservations are highly recommended. Sitting inside or outside on the large terrace, you will have an unsurpassed view of the mountains all around. The menu is varied with many seasonal items. We were there twice in August and had delicious entrees of fresh local trout and Colorado Lamb. Excellent service was evident both times. I highly recommend Vista for a wonderful dining experience.

We've lived in the area around this venue for years and it has seen its ups and downs. Our most recent experience started out very poorly with a very overwhelmed frenetic waitress. However, she recovered, but it was a huge turn off to the start of the evening. The food was outstanding with the panzanella buratta colorado tomato salad being the star. My trout was outstanding and my husband pleased with his halibut. We will go back, but perhaps we will get lucky with a less harried waitress.

Vistas never disappoints. Love sitting outside on the patio, tons of flowers, the creek and the green golf course. Darryl and his team are absolutely the best. They don't hover but are there if you need anything. The food is great and we love sharing appetizers so we get to try more. Can't wait to go back.
