Cozy, fun, unique atmosphere with good service and authentic food where the servers dressed in Austrian attire and spoke with Austrian accents making you feel like you get to experience something unique and different....a nice change from many of the places we typically go to enjoy American, Mexican, or Italian type meals.

Above all, the ambiance is what makes Almresi. They have gone to a great deal of effort to make things quite authentic - twine ties around the cocktail glasses, the etched wine glasses, effort to recruit Austrian servers, etc. I have dined there several times and each has been outstanding. This time we had the hutessen - the witches hat which is a lot of fun as always. Also enjoyed our server Maria.

I am very familiar with how the Austrian/German cuisine tastes. Almresi has made it too American Austrian. The staff and ambient is very nice, not the food though.

Such a fun and nuanced gem in Vail! Atmosphere was my favorite part. Everyone who works there wears an adorable traditional Austrian outfit. And it was really fun to try traditional Austrian cuisine (something I'd assume I wouldn't find so tasty, but I was happily surprised!) The Gnocchi dish was out of this world. It's very hard to get a reservation, so be sure to plan ahead. Highly recommend for a cozy, fun night in Vail.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner after skiing at Almresi. We made reservations days in advance after reading reviews. It's a small restaurant, but with a warm ambience and tastefully decorations with materials imported from Germany. Our waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. We had the fondue starter, followed by the sauerbraten for myself and the bone-in ribeye for my husband (both of which was cooked perfectly!). My only complaint was I couldn't eat the red cabbage side the meal came with due to a food allergy and they offered me a side of potatoes that I was charged $8 for. They mentioned a few times that the owners are opening another restaurant in town this week.
