2. You Can Dine Amongst the Spectacular Mountain Setting

Vail mountain restaurants pride themselves on offering both sensational food and spectacular views to match. Here at Larkspur, our 5,500-square foot venue is nestled into a corner of Vail Valley at the base of Golden Peak, so the views that surround the grounds make a beautiful backdrop wherever you look.

Best of all, our dining choices make the most of the Colorado setting. You can choose to dine out on our sunny outdoor patio and dine amongst the stunning scenery of Vail Mountain. The fresh Colorado air and the bordering forest of aspen trees will make any outdoor dining experience a time to remember. 

Alternatively, our mountainside outdoor patio offers guests panoramic views of the Golden Peak. Dining alfresco on our mountainside patio has never felt so wonderful when the sun begins to set and our outdoor lights light up. It’s a dining backdrop that’s literally as pretty as a picture. 

3. Unwind With a Delicious Cocktail 

Our Vail dining guide doesn’t end with just tasty food. Quench your thirst with an aperitif  and watch the sun set over Vail’s breathtaking mountains. Here at Larkspur, you can relish the rest of the evening in the right way by joining us in our elegant bar that makes good use of the gorgeous outdoors. The space boasts sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and has direct access to the patio through infinity doors. We simply had to bring the outside in! 

Whether the clock has struck cocktail hour or you simply fancy an after-dinner nightcap, unwinding after your Vail dining experience is an absolute must.
