Fodor's Expert Review Flame

$$$$ Vail American Fodor's Choice

For a high-end restaurant in the high-end Four Seasons Vail hotel, this modern mountain steak house provides an appropriately high-end dining experience with surprisingly informal, family-friendly service. Small bites like the spicy tuna tacos or elk corn dogs served with house-made ketchup and aioli are perfect for sharing, which is highly encouraged, but the emphasis is on big here. Big windows and a big patio with mountain views; a new bar with a big (165-inch) TV; and big bites. Order any piece of meat—there are 17 cuts, including the exclusive, Colorado-raised, pure Wagyu beef—and you'll appreciate why the chef dry-ages his meat a second 28 days after buying it. The flavor and tenderness is unmatched. Be sure to leave room for some decadent sides, perhaps crispy brussels sprouts kimchi or Maine lobster mashed potatoes.
