Sweet Basil Review

The decor may be understated—dark-wood chairs and buff-colored walls—but the contemporary cuisine is anything but. The freshest seasonal ingredients available are used, so the menu changes about once a month. You might find grilled Muscovy duck breast with pistachio salsa verde and smoked-cherry gastrique, or Berkshire pok rib eye with tapioca corn pudding and chanterelle mushrooms. Pair these entrées with one of the hundreds of wines from the restaurant's expansive cellar. Leave room for the luscious desserts.

    Still the best

    Fodor's doesn't list all of the good-to-great restaurants in Vail. Omitting Kelly Liken is ridiculous...

    Nevertheless, I think Sweet Basil is still the best. They've also opened a more casual option (Mountain Standard) on the floor below on the creek side.

    Sweet Basil Review

    This place was the best dinner we've ever had!! The flavors were spot on. The service was friendly and professional. I love the hip feel of the bar. Great hang spot for the uber-wealthy. The highlight of our vacation.

    Best diner in Vail!

    Everyone we met in Vail said we just HAD to go to Sweet Basel. So we did.
    The food was amaizing!! My fav dish was the buttermilk battered deep fried quail. -so good-
    The staff was friendly, the decor was beautiful and the food was awesome! Well worth every penny.
