    Food was just ok, and should have been much better at that venue and price point. Gnocchi was more like mash potato dumplings than firm pasta. Buffalo was overly salty and excessively rich in the sauce. Striped bass was a small fillet with too many added ingredients. Flavor was ok, but not up to par with 5 star rating. Scallops were more like a single scallop cut into 4 pieces, again with nothing special out of the combination of ingredients paired with it. One adult and two kids $360. Single glass of Cab and the Pellegrino was the best part of the dining experience.

    Came here for brunch and was so impressed with the selection, quality of the items, and the notation of numerous gluten free options. Our server Mary was exceptional! She helped answer my many questions about the ingredient due to my dietary restrictions and was so friendly! The views of the greenhouse overlooking the pool and gorgeous snow made everything complete. Thank you for an amazing brunch experience!

    Our only complaint every year is how warm it gets in the restaurant. The solarium acts as a greenhouse, so be prepared to be warm. Other than that, it’s a great experience.

    We did not dine here after all. We had wanted to order off the menu for breakfast and they were only offering a brunch buffet at $46 per person. No where in the Open Table app or on the Ludwig’s website or menu did it say we could only eat from the buffet. The menu has an incredible selection of breakfast entrees. We were disappointed.

    We always love brunch at Ludwig’s. But, the tables were so close together that people returning from the buffet as well as waitstaff pouring drinks repeatedly nudged our chairs. It was quite disturbing. Fewer tables and umbrellas please!

    For some reason they never seem to manage the queue to get in and the tables. Same in winter time. There's a massive queue and I waited 15 min. to get the table making us late for the reservation. When seated we could see lots of empty tables. Kept going on while we sat and ate, massive queue and lots of empty tables. Seems like poor management and it starts off the day in negative way. Besides that, we still love the breakfast buffet and the waiters are lovely and sweet. There's absolutely nothing to fault as soon as you get your table.

    There was no order off the menu option, thus, everyone dining had to choose the buffet which was $50 per person. This was explained as we checked in for our reservation. Know this going in. Very $$$ for breakfast

    Disappointing. Service slow, apologies were Germanic as if it was our fault for being part of a busy evening. Nice touches (great salads) were offset by a couple of menu choices we regretted (the gnocchi is actually not a pasta dish) and vegetarian menu choices visible on the online menu which we checked for our guests were not available. This is a beautiful space but they really take their Vail vacation audience for granted. Since we are locals we will not be back soon

    Food is excellent and value is reasonable for resort dining Unfortunately we were seated at the table near the door, which was very busy with crowds brushing by - although we reached out in advance to request a specific table We also had to wait 30 minutes from seating until we were served our beverage Our waiter was very personable and the meal service picked up after the initial delay
