    First, we thoroughly enjoyed our server, Chelsea. She was genuine, smart, funny, energetic, and attentive. I wanted to take her home to be the daughter I never had. We sat just inside the building next to the patio with windows open to the outside patio. Nice breeze without the hot sun. Clam chowder was good but not the best we've ever had. The sourdough bread was excellent - crispy crust, soft and tasty inside. My husband ordered the special - red snapper. It was overdone and dry and bland. I had the crusted halibut with mashed potatoes. It was really, really good. The bartender was happy to make the dessert cocktail I wanted, even though it was not on the menu. Even for Vail, which is notoriously overpriced, the meal was more expensive than it was worth.

    The food was absolutely perfect. Service was prompt, but perfunctory. We were treated like tourists in a tourist town, and they effectively tried to hustle us along throughout the meal. This was not appreciated given we were quiet, polite, and knew what we were doing. It is also a very expensive restaurant and as such, more warm and welcoming service should be a given. The management and service team could benefit from spending some time with their Mountain Standard colleagues. Not only is their food on a par with Montauk, the overall experience is exceptional and arguably the best in Vail. Thank you.

    Loved everysingle thing and cannot believe I have missed this place for the last 35 years it’s been here. The halibut was amazing, the caviar, oysters, gazpacho and wedge were absolutely delish!!! Our server was so kind and accommodating. She moved us inside right before the sky unleashed and we ended dinner with sorbet and a rainbow☺️

    Vacationing in Vail area. Wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was top quality and simply prepared. Yes it’s expensive but so is everything in this location that is not burgers or pizza. We were grateful for sides including fresh, perfectly cooked vegetables as well.
