Our friends had gotten reservations for NYE dinner. They were staying in Lionshead and we were staying in Vail Village at Tivoli. We walked over. It was a 20 minute walk (maybe a bit longer) that we enjoyed taking. The wait staff was very friendly and we ordered oysters and lobster mac and cheese to start. We got 2 orders... More

We enjoyed our meal at Montauk. Good fresh seafood and a lively atmosphere. A must is the Sand Pie dessert!

Everything was perfect from start to finish. A warm and friendly greeting from the hostess, our server was on top of everything and the owner came by multiple times making sure everything was perfect which it was. Very well done Montauk!

We went here on a local friend's recommendation and were not disappointed! The food was delicious and the staff was educated on the menu and wine list - they were very personable and fun! The feel of the restaurant was homey and classy. The owner of the restaurant even stopped by our table to see how our experience was going... More

Just a wonderful place to dine. Enjoyed the Raw Bar very much. The Seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly as was the steak my wife ordered. Our waitress knew her stuff and was very friendly and informative. Definitely will come back next time we are in Vail.

The worst service and the worst food!!!. Uneducated owner with very bad manners and actitud. Food is not worth the effort. Better eat a pizza and beer. I am very disappointed!!! Will never even consider it!

My family was looking forward to trying this restaurant based on the good reviews. We started with calamari, which was over cooked and tasted like it had been fried in overused oil. The two fish dishes our family ordered were dry and the buttermilk mashed potatoes were blah. Crab legs were good. Overall, the dinner was very average and overpriced.

We love to dine at Montauk Seafood Grill every year, The food is fresh and well prepared. The Lobster Mac and Cheese appetizer is to die for. I ordered the Snapper and it was perfect. Husband had the Ribeye and it was wonderful. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list is excellent.

We arrived little early and hostess made best effort to seat us right away. Waiting staff were attentive and knowledge. Atmosphere and decor was very nice. Broad menu. Some items ordered were great, some were good and all tasted fresh - I would come here again.

Thank Lauras D
