Lovely setting for an afternoon lunch with friends. Food was a bit of a disappointment, and a bit short of most reviews. Highlight was the truffle fries appetizer. Flatbreads and hamburger that followed were just average - nothing special. Worth the trip for the views but don’t expect the food to be special.

We took my parents up to celebrate their 60th anniversary and we were treated like royalty! The staff is amazing - service and food were impeccable! Special thanks to Karen (?) who provided some free passes for my parents to ride the gondola up! So appreciated that and all the special touches that made our lunch so special. Will definitely be back to have a drink on the gorgeous deck!

After being seated we waited over 20 minutes without anyone acknowledging we were there. We finally had to walk up and ask the hostess if anyone was planning to serve us. After some excuses as to why we were ignored we ordered a bottle of wine. The wine steward chose to do a no-look pour and dump a third of the bottle onto the table. The manager gave us 20% off the bottle and a couple free desserts. We had been there before and knew what to expect price wise but hoped the setting and great food would be worth it. The setting was great as usual. The food was so so and lacked flavor, nothing was exceptional. Kids meals are $27 for a small serving of applesauce, a huge bowl of carbs and a scoop of ice cream. The other rub is the scenic gondola charge for our non-skiing family members. Normally a $44 ticket until you say you're eating at the 10th which changes the ticket price to $55 with a $20 credit off the bill if you remember to give them your lift ticket when the bill comes. Overall it ain't worth it.

We went for the view and a quick nite to eat on a non-skiing day and ended up being completely surprised with an all afternoon outstanding dining experience. We drank several local craft beers, signature hot chocolate and lemonade cocktails that were delicious. The newly added Croque Monsieur flatbread rivals anything from the countryside of France. We had the luxury of being there during the slow season and being able to move freely from the back patio to indoors easily. The view is stunning and well worth the gondola trip up. If the sun is shining they provide complimentary sunscreen and if the temperature is low you can cozy up to the fireplace. We did both! The service was great and the food and drinks were too... we will definitely be back next time we are in Vail.... but would never try to repeat this super relaxing experience during peak season!

OK here it goes. I am reluctantly recommending the 10th as a great spot to take a break in your ski day to relax and take off your boots and enjoy the provided slippers ( if you can find one in your size as the larger ones are often hard to find) I ate at the 10th twice this past weekend and had very similar experiences. The Menu is limited and I think they overreach, attempting dishes the would be hard to execute well even in the best of conditions let alone at Mid- Vail. They should simplify the menu and do it well instead. The service is spotty unless you are with a Vail Ski Instructor in which case they are very attentive as I observed on both days. I had to ask for bread both days and had to walk over to the bus station for missing flatware as well. The lone bright spot was being served a complimentary dessert for a birthday being observed for a member of our party. The low point was another member becoming ill later in the day after sampling the beef carpaccio. Enjoy the 10th for its view, not the food.

We came to the Tenth based on recommendations from a friend and our ski instructor. We knew it was pricey but trusted these recommendations. We were underwhelmed to say the least. Totally not worth the extra time in our ski day, nor does the quality of the food come close to being worth the prices. The kids meal is a joke!!! A bowl of macaroni noodles with butter is $27! We added grilled chicken putting the total at $36 for the kids meal. I guess the included applesauce and dessert are what command the high price. My husbands burger was average at best, the slaw was terrible and not fresh, the butternut squash soup was ho-hum and the salad was bland. Service also bad and slow - we waited over ten minutes for the cookies (part of kids meal) to come. (Forget any actual fruit or veggie options on the kids menu - all carbs and sugar.). This place is a tourist trap - we will know for future visits to save our splurges for the better quality restaurants in town and stick with the chili and salad in the other lunch places on the mountain. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the hostess was joy friendly and forgot to check us in. So we waited until about ten minutes after our reservation time, checked in again to learn she had forgotten the first time we spoke with her.

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.

My husband (63) and I (58) were having lunch after skiing with our friends’s children age 37 and 35. The waitress would not serve a drink to El because she did not have her license. That would have been acceptable, but she had to add fuel to fire and bring over manager to make sure we knew they knew she could not drink at table. I thought it very rude of our already rude server. Her tip reflected our being watched over entire meal. By the way food is just passable

We usually love having lunch here when we go skiing. Usually it’s excellent. This most recent time we waited a long time for our food. There was some kind of mix up with the order. They gave us complementary desserts which was nice but we lost about a half hour of skiing because of the long wait. The food is wonderful and so is the place. This most recent visit was frustrating.

Food is very good considering it is being cooked on top of a Mountain. Because of its location you can probably charge whatever you want and therefore $30 for a decent Hamburger but not Amazing. However it is an Ideal location for a very good lunch on the Mountain. Also to their credit the Service was excellent.

The food is good, the ambiance is excellent but the biggest problem was how long it took to get seated and served. Even with a reservation made several days in advance, we had to wait 15-20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. I guess the thing that The 10th needs to remember is that they aren't a restaurant down in town but are a slope-side restaurant serving skiers that expect to continue skiing after their meal (well.. after lunch). Certainly some of the patrons were happy spending 90 minutes of their ski day in the restaurant and if that is what they want to do, then The 10th is the place for them. But the staff also needs to be ready and able to seat and serve their skiing guests a bit more promptly so that they can get back on the hill, particularly considering how fabulous a ski hill Vail is.
