Went here for dinner 4 days ago and was not impressed at all. Had a vodka house cocktail with pear infused vodka and cucumber which is usually a nice refreshing combination but not so the way they prepared it. Who ever heard of serving a martini in a highball glass W/ICE?? Hated it! For dinner we had the scallops and... More

We visited Larkspur with a group of four. Our table selected the chefs tasting menu. Overall food was good. Not overly memorable but nicely prepared and served. Some of the staff seemed like they were training so the service was so-so. The head waitress however was excellent. She and the chef went out of their way to accommodate our friend... More

Parking is an issue, but the food is great and the building that it is in is beautiful. The market items are expensive, but less than you would expect to pay on Vail Mountain.

Four of us enjoyed a fine meal at Larkspur on the day after Thanksgiving. The dining room was probably only half full at this dead time in the resort. Come Christmas and thereafter for a few months and it will be packed. Service was excellent, relaxed and no one had to rush or press. First courses of Caesar salad, Tempura... More

We had a very large group go to dinner here for our last night together, and in the next room over there was also a wedding party. The staff was wonderful and took care of everyone fantastically. Our servers were so friendly and attentive, and the food was fantastic! The shrimp polenta appetizer is AMAZING, and the Larkburger was perfectly... More

Right now this restaurant is offering a specially priced meal for $39 per person ... plus 25% off a bottle of wine (up to $100). There is a good selection of choices. We enjoyed oysters Rockefeller served on bacon jam, slightly curried swordfish over a selection of beans, and a 2-course artisanal cheese plate. Truly a delicious meal from beginning... More

Totally the wrong attitude. A large group of us booked out this restaurant early one evening. There were approximately 200 of us and they did a running buffet of meat, fish etc. There was nothing wrong with the food. However, there was nothing particularly impressive about it either. We had heard a lot of recommendations for this restaurant before we... More

The food was extremely good and creative. There weren't a lot of people in Vail when we were there, and the restaurant wasn't very busy, but we enjoyed everything we had.
