Description: 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.

Always great for lunch overlooking the Eagle river. Great apps, try the onion rings. I always have “the wedge” but everything is great. So enjoy.

On our first day in Vail we wanted to sit outside with a great view and we were glad to try Mountain Standard. My husband had a halibut special and I had wagyu beef open face meatloaf sandwich. We loved them both! Nice but small outside patio with views of the creek and great for people watching! We would go again!

Very nice place! Went there for lunch. Had chicken liver mousse and compressed Summer melon salat. Absolutely delicious!

The menu and ambience were really nice for this establishment. The pork shank dish I had for dinner was delicious and filling and they had some great wines on their wine list.
But all that being said, their homemade choco-taco dessert was so, so good and would be enough to make me return on every trip to Vail.
