Lovely restaurant and delicious cuts, friendly staff
As to better eating options in Vail there are not too many and so between Flame and Elway's I guess Flame is better. The regular rib-eye at $72 was disgusting, the bison rib-eye much better. I would go back but only because there are not too many options.
A lot of kids running around.
Charged for bread. Overpriced for what you get
This is the best steak restaurant in Vail village!! And Chef Marcus is terrific!
Brunch buffet was amazing
OMG this place is incredible. My wife wanted to go to a steakhouse for her birthday. Boy, this place does not disappoint. A place that can make a really great steak is hard to find and we're often underwhelmed. We split the 24oz aged T-bone, which was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. It was probably the best steak I've ever had. Also the lobster bisque appetizer and the brussel sprouts, lobster mashed potatoes and bacon wrapped asparagus sides were amazing. Flame is part of the Four Seasons Hotel so it's not cheap, but they certainly deliver on an amazing food and experience.
Disappointing. Expected excellence but didn’t happen. Cameron was great, the bread was fine but then it went downhill. The octopus was warm, not hot and slimy on one side. My wife’s risotto, for $24 was hot, but less than a half cup lost on a large bowl. I ordered the venison chops medium rare as I always do. As a hunter I know about cooking venison. The char on one side was very tasty, but the other side was a bit raw, difficult to cut with the steak knife, and if it wasn’t so dark in there I would have sent it back. It wasn’t hot either. My wife is a vegetarian so she had mixed vegetables and they were beautifully colored but cold. The price was high which I expect in Vail. But the overall experience was poor.
Steak house expensive
Ask to sit in Cameron’s section. He’s the best. If you like steak, this is the place to go.
The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very relaxed. You can take your time to study the menu and the winelist (no hectic as in other Vail restaurants). Friendly and very good service.
Excellent food. Indoor a bit old fashioned. Noise level was a bit high. Very friendly waitresses. Would go there again!
Fantastic meal! I’d highly recommend the 7x Ranch steaks!
Amazing food.. Filet Mignon was excellent, and my daughter had the wagyu flat iron steak which was SO flavorful.. Beautiful elegant atmosphere.. And the busser "Rica" provided us with the most amazing service & attitude, she really made our night. Flame will be on our list every time we visit Vail.
Excellent service and fabulous steaks and scallops!
The most delicious meal we’ve had all week. Steak is outstanding. Service is impeccable. Love it and can’t wait to go back next time we’re here.
Very average. Steaks were not cooked to order and both of us had to send it back. Service was not attentive considering it was not enough busy.
Fantastic food and amazing service. With the trip over from Beaver Creek.
The salad was served 20 minutes late, and the steak was rushed to the table when we were not finished with the salad. The steak was served lukewarm since it was cooked and waited too long for us to finish the salad. That was very disappointing having a piece of lukewarm steak in a top class steak house in Vail.
The special ordered soufflé took 25 minutes of prep time which is not unusual. However the soufflé tasted more like a dense chocolate cake than a true soufflé! The 2 decaf cappuccino were served lukewarm as well!
We did our best to convince ourselves that my wife’s birthday celebration was great & we had a great time. At the end, we knew we may not come back to this place again. There are just too many great places to eat such as Almeresi, Left Banks, La tour, just to name a few.
Our server was excellent and none of these was her fault. The place is best suited for business dinners and I would not recommend it for an intimate date night.
Vail definitely has some fine dining and I've been to all of them. This is always a must for our group every year! Show up early and have a drink at Remedy Bar the floor above. A +++++
when our reservation went from 7 to 8 people they gave us a hard time to pop out an extra chair. Which by the way we had a space for. But after that, the rest of our evening went really well. The food was very good and the service was great. Some of our favorites were the brussel sprouts and the bacon goat cheese potatoes.
Honestly one of the best meals I had in vail!
Excellent food; expensive prices (they even charge extra for bread!), good service, cold and austere men’s club, old English atmosphere
We had the 40 ounce wagu beef ribeye. It was tender, flavorful, and delicious. We had not simply a meal, but a dining experience. The legendary flame hot chocolate is not to be missed. All of the sides were terrific. We had the donuts for dessert and they were terrific. We also had the apple crisp and that was delicious as well. It was a memorable meal, A five-star experience from start to finish. The only area I think they could improve upon is the bread. Some people may love it but I did not. Their cocktail menu was also a bit skimpy. Many excellent steak restaurants have a large variety of martinis and or specialty cocktails. I feel that adds to the overall experience. In spite of those two minor shortcomings, I would gladly eat there again.
Great time. Overpriced and the steak options for filets were limited. Service was “ok” and the restaurant was really dark. Great restaurant, just needs a little more direction.
Excellent service, Tatiana was knowledgeable about the food , its preparation and the portion size . Food preparation and quality very good. wine list properly priced .Oversll flame’s experience was top rate .
First not great experience. Food was undercooked with very little apology. We will be back but not if this level of experience continues. For this price point you have to be 100% dialed in and they were 60. That’s a D, people. Step it back up.
Nice atmosphere food was ok considering the ratings & stars given... although I suggested Pittsburgh for my file mignon...it did not come out as requested..for the Expense of this establishment.. there are many others locally where foods better & less expensive.. waitress was friendly
They seemed to be under-staffed. They were nice t attentive and we had long periods without service, The expensive steaks weren’t so good to justify the price.
Flame is always top notch. The food and service never disappoint.
Our second time here food and all is great will keep returning when in town
Always terrific food, service and ambiance. Much more than an outstanding steak house! We also enjoy the convenience of valet parking in Vail.
Waiter was horrible
The food was incredible! One of the best meals we’ve had in our life! The steaks are amazing and the appetizers we tried were also delicious. Expensive but worth every penny. We tried all the restaurants that are a “must” in vail and this one and swiss chalet were by far the best ones. Highly recommended
Great steak and service!
Nice bloody stakes, but a bit overpriced from my pow. We takes filet mignon $110 for 8oz and NY $150 for 18oz. It was perfectly cooked to medium rare, but not awesome as you can expect knowing the price. Broad (for Vail) list of french wines to whom it may concern. We choose Chateau Cantemerle 2014 from Haut-Medoc region which cost us $130. Thanks Flame for nice evening experience.
Best steaks in Vail! Nice service from a caring staff. A local favorite!
This had always been one of our favorite restaurants in the valley. Quality of the food and skill of preparation has fallen and the prices have doubled. Very disappointing. We ordered a $300 ribeye, medium-rare, to share. Carved table-side, it was completely raw. They took the slices back and re-fired them returning with gray, unappetizing, completely over-cooked, well done slices. Inexcusable for the price. The appetizers and sides were ok at best. As I said, beyond disappointing. We won’t be back.
