Fancy and expensive for a mid mountain restaurant, but delicious. Fantastic views and courteous, ever-present staff. The room to store your ski gear, including the option to trade your boots for slippers, was as welcome and comforting as the pot pie. Make sure to make a reservation well ahead of time, as it fills up during peak hours. More

German | Vail, Mountains

The only caveat: You've got to like Austrian food, because that's what this place serves. Start with a shot boot of ZIRBENSCHNAPS to get warmed up, followed by a large glass of Austrian wine. Continue warming up with a soup, such as the beef broth-based RINDFLEISCH SCHÖBERLN. From there, you can't go wrong, as the Schnitzel, Spatzle, duck legs (KNUSPRIGE ENTENKEULE), or anything else you order. Don't forget to wrap things up with APFELSTRUDEL, featuring apples sent from Austria. Of course. More

Pepi's is always dependable for a nice lunch or dinner. It is close to the mountain, so convenient to come down, eat, and return to skiing. Our lunch was great. Only suggestion that I would make is to serve warm bread. The bread was ice cold on a cold day. Service was great. We had the crabcakes and a pastrami sandwich. More

Really loved our night out at the Terra Bistro. Great staff that were very attentive. Crab cake for an app was delicious (just wish there were two to share). My husband and I had the pork dish and the filet - both were excellent, full of flavor and just the right amount. We finished off with a chocolate molten cake....yum! More

Food is good, not great, the appetizer menu didn’t have anything appealing to me. I realize that is a personal preference and may have been great for someone else. Our server was great. The flatbread was delicious. Pad Thai is what I had and I just didn’t love it. More

It is difficult to find this very attractive restaurant, but once there it’s nice. However, the menu was extremely limited. The food is served in very generous portions and very good. So what food they do, they do very well. Half-priced bottles of wine was a bonus. More

Discover Vail

There's no place for a cozy winter getaway quite like Vail. After a day of skiing, the town's many bistros, lounges and bars offer plenty to do whether you want to wind down or spend the night out with friends. Vail takes much of its culinary influence from other mountain destinations, most notably the Alps, featuring numerous French, Italian and even Swiss restaurants. This town's reputation as a flourishing destination for skiers brings a surprising amount of variety to the area. At the local Japanese and Thai restaurants, you can taste almost every corner of the world. Vail also offers a number of Mexican restaurants for those who want some spicy chile-flavored cuisine to warm up from the cold of the Rocky Mountain slopes.
