With amazing service and excellent food our meal here exceeded our expectations. Came early on a Friday night and it was just starting to fill up pretty fast when we were leaving.

This place is definitely good. Most places that you find around are burger joints and this one definitely has a good selection. Don't forget to order a margarita!!! I'm from Texas and we have some really good margaritas, but this one is definitely up there.

This was a nice restaurant. I enjoyed my meal. The one thing that I would say is if you do not like/are allergic to nuts this is not the place to go. I am not a nut fan and every item had nuts.

I would doubt it if they could handle a large group. It is a very busy restaurant in a tight space.

From the creators of the legendary Sweet Basil in Vail Colorado, comes a fresh, innovative new restaurant. Aptly named Mountain Standard, this rustic and relaxed tavern aims to set a new standard in the Vail valley by using an ancient form of cooking.The majority of Mountain Standard’s menu is prepared via the most primal cooking method: over an open and live wood fire. The only restaurant in the valley to devote themselves to this age-old way of cooking, the food at this exciting new restaurant has rustic, bold and honest flavors, focusing on the purest ingredients in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond.Service, like the cuisine, has that perfect balance of providing a first class dining experience with a more casual vibe. There is no smoke and mirrors here – no fuss – just simple, honest, from the heart service and cooking. The beauty of the creek side location is mirrored by the high energy vibe of this dynamic restaurant.It is this energy, outstanding service, and hand crafted food that enables Mountain Standard to offer a truly unique dining experience, approachable and enjoyable to everyone.
