Best tomato soup in Vail. Great burger; skinny fries get cold too soon. Accommodating staff. Lovely dining room with comfortable booths. Ski-in @ Golden Peak. Good Champagne by the glass, good espresso. Could do without the open kitchen staff guy singing (badly) loudly.....I suspect his co-workers could too!

We had dinner last night for my birthday and we had a party of 12. The service was so slow and our waiter seemed very confused. The food was wonderful!!! Since they have gone to two nights a week for dinner, the staff needs more training!!!

Right at the base of Golden Peak, had a wonderful salad, and a warm and tasty soup sitting right at the bar. Best way to end the day. Thanks Luther for a great late lunch!

Many thanks to Austin, our server, for coordinating an excellent dinner experience for my family and friends (6 total). Throughout each course, from beginning to end, Austin delivered a consistently high level of service that complimented creative and delicious menu offerings, in addition to a truly impressive wine list. The NY strip,lobster ravioli and pork chop were each wonderful tasting... More

My family's favorite dinner meal in Vail was at Larkspur. The ambiance is warm and spiffy, without feeling stuffy, and the food, from shoestring fries to intricate salmon preparation, could not have been better. The tables are nicely spaced and many are round (or oval) which I consider a bonus. Best of all, our waiter was friendly and made us... More

This place is a good option for Lunch after a Ski break. Located at the bottom of Golden Peak, serving good food options that are certainly far better than most quick lunch places. Would totally recommend to any skier that appreciates better lunch options.

Larkspur dining room is truly impressive. We had dinner with our good friends there last week. Everything that we ate was excellent and delicious. Gluten free is not a problem. The atmosphere was great- nice but not too fancy, Dim lights, mountain look.The service was impeccable, staff was so naturally and genuinely friendly and helpful it was a real pleasure... More

This restaurant and bar is always hopping after 3 pm. Great food and drinks. Lots of sun and activity. Familys seem to gravitate to the bar for lunch and snacks after skiing.

We held our wedding reception at the Larkspur over this past Labor day weekend. The staff was organized and so responsive to all our questions and requests over our entire planning process. The set up was absolutely perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised when all of our décor had been perfectly handled by the Larkspur staff - when our helper... More

The Board of Governors on which I sit met for a gala dinner at the Larkspur during a recent visit to Vail, Colorado. My wife and daughter accompanied me on this dinner and we all found it a perfectly marvelous dinner venue! We will certainly visit again!
