The 20 Essential Vail Restaurants

From a hot box of fresh doughnuts in the morning to dinner at a strip mall Northern Italian restaurant, here’s where to eat while adventuring in Vail Valley

View as Map

One of Colorado’s best-known and most massive ski resorts, Vail looks like a storybook version of a mountain town, where European-style cafes line cobblestone streets, with vistas of towering evergreen trees in the distance. While most visitors head to Vail for outdoor adventures, it’s also a choice destination for luxury hotels and sprawling second homes. Vail Village itself offers a lively dining scene, featuring a mix of gourmet gems and laid-back local haunts. But those heading to the Gore Range of the Rocky Mountains should also keep in mind that the Vail Valley encompasses the nearby towns of Minturn, Avon, Beaver Creek, and Edwards, which dot I-70 and collectively boast some of the best alpine dining options anywhere at altitude.

Update July 2021: Eagle County has officially lifted all local health orders around COVID-19, but ever-changing statewide orders remain in place. Individual businesses will still have the authority to enforce mask wearing at their own discretion. Vail Resorts expects the summer season to be back in full swing, with a busy calendar of concerts and festivals making a much-anticipated return.

The following is an updated take on the Vail Valley dining scene, highlighting beloved, locally owned bistros and elevated, enduring classics — all of which should be applauded (and amply tipped) for surviving the devastating effects of the pandemic.

Note: The inclusion of restaurants offering dine-in service should not be taken as an endorsement for dining inside. Studies indicate a lower exposure risk to COVID-19 outdoors, but the level of risk is contingent on social distancing and other safety guidelines. Check with each restaurant for up-to-date information on dining offerings. For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Eagle County website or official state resources.

Just off of I-70 (the main drag of the Eagle-Vail corridor) and situated in a strip mall (also where you’ll find the only cannabis dispensaries in the area) lies an Italian eatery beloved by longtime locals and perfect for date nights. Once inside, you’ll forget your surroundings thanks to dim lights, a bottle of Chianti, and classic regional cuisine from Northern Italy, including petti di pollo alle fragole, gnocchi principessa, and vongole en brodo. Ending the evening with a mini cannoli is also a must.

You might mistake Vail Village for Paris inside this French bistro, which serves traditional brasserie fare complete with poisson en papillote (seasonal fish baked in parchment), escargot, beef bourguignon, and steak frites. The walls, adorned with posters and antiques, make an Instagram-worthy backdrop for the equally attractive food, especially if you order the decadent Champagne brunch (available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.).

The valley has a handful of fresh sushi options (including splurge-worthy Matsuhisa and more affordable quality at Joy), but Osaki’s is the spot to seek out for one epic Japanese dinner.

This family-owned European restaurant and patisserie has been a charmer since 1974.

Wood-roasted bone marrow, a grilled tiger-prawn Caesar salad, and blackened Texas redfish are among the hearty menu options, with classic raw-bar items also available.

This cozy, chic spot is worth seeking out for a drink before or after dinner — although the kitchen crew, veterans of the now-closed Restaurant Kelly Liken, prepare small plates that make a perfectly solid meal. In addition to its excellent wine list (50 pours by the glass), Root & Flower serves draft beers and craft cocktails. Drinkers should work their way through the multiple liquid menus, divvied up into categories like “underappreciated & misunderstood,” “pretty & pink,” “slow & serious,” and “rustic & complex.”
