When you go somewhere that you are paying top dollar for meals, then the first 2 things that should be consistent are food quality and service. The ambiance is always important, but if one of the first 2 are missing then ambiance means nothing. We had a family gathering of 12, 4 of us from the area and 8 relatives... More

We loved our waiter, Lucas W. , as he didn't mind at all that we just wanted appetizers instead of a full dinner. The mussels for me and the pork belly wraps for my husband were both delicious and filling. The view from the patio of Gore Creek is beautiful. It is a little off the beaten path of Vail,... More

We had a very romantic dinner by the fire last night. The meal was superb. From the fresh bread and jam to the tender fillet... The crème brûlée was just perfect too! 5 stars for sure!!

We had a wonderful dinner on the patio near the creek. The food was wonderful and plentiful. I had the chicken & my husband had the Ravioli. Both were excellent. The chocolate cake was a chocolate lover's dream. The service excellent. Our server Lucas was delightful. We will definitely be back next time we are in Vail.

My husband and I went to atwater for our anniversary dinner. We sat outside and could see the mountains and hear the creek. The food was great and the service was excellent. Our main server was ELSA. She was so attentive and wanted to make sure the night was special!

We had a very nice meal but the kitchen seemed a little unorganized. One of our dishes was wrong but was quickly corrected and we were served a complimentary dessert. Overall very good
