Maybe I just happen to go on a bad day. The jazz band had not yet started. There was no real atmosphere and service was not pleasant.

Just enjoyed a wonderful meal at Larkspur. Service was stellar, and the food was delicious. My peers definitely made the best choice by ordering the sweetbreads. Sooo tasty! Sommelier picked some very tasty, reasonably priced bottles for us. Cocktails were ok, but I'm a manhattan snob and rarely are they ever up to standard unless I make them myself (ha!). In a group of 9, enjoying plenty of wine and cocktails, we each ate 3 courses for just over $100 a head. Not too shabby in Vail.

My usually haunt in Vail is Kelly Liken. Larkspur was a friend's choice, and I'll definitely return!

At the base of Golden Peak, this is a great spot for Apres Ski, or a fine dining experience worth the free bus ride to get there if you stay in town or a bit further afield. Delicious bar food, dinners and desserts!

Went here on multiple recommendations both local and tourists. Chef restaurant with open kitchen and seasonal menu based on a quasi-farm to table theme. The night we went it was truffle season so there were several items featuring truffles. Service was friendly and accommodating. Sometimes a little spotty but overall pretty good. Everyone tried hard. We had four meals, only one person was really satisfied and one was really unhappy with his meal. Chef may go a little overboard to test food combinations, but it's really hit or miss. We're up for trying anything but raw celery bits in pappardelle and cream sauce really didn't work for any of us. There were other combos as well that were a bit baffling, but I think this is a case of a chef trying to hard.

Given the heavy price tag on virtually everything on the menu, expectations were high as well -- especially given the double whammy that in addition to the price of Larkspur, it is in Golden Peak and not all that convenient to visit in the evenings (nothing going on at Golden Peak in the eves).

So when we ranked our favorite restaurants from this recent trip to Vail, Larkspur came in pretty low -- especially given the price. For a better value, more fun and more traditional Colorado ambiance and cuisine, we recommend Russell's which in Vail Village.
