    Really enjoyed the meal. Very authentic. Veal goulash and pork shank were excellent. And don’t skip the pretzels. Service was incredibly quick and very friendly staff. Looking forward to next visit!

    We always have a good experience at Alpenrose. I love the ambiance and decor. Food is delicious and the presentation is lovely. Portions are very generous! We brought some out of town guests for dinner and they loved the whole experience. They have declared it their new favorite Vail restaurant.

    Considering the overpriced tourist trap that Vail Colorado is, the food here is actually reasonably priced. The food quality was pretty good; though, not really on par with what I would expect to eat in Europe. Service was slow and absent-minded. We were visited by four separate waitresses, one of whom forgot to bring a refill of my drink. Time in and out was approximately 75 minutes for a party of two. If you want cocktails, the prices are pretty outrageous. Expect to spend north of $15 per cocktail. The beer was also expensive; however, not outrageous in my opinion.

    Very good service, and nice ambience, but the food was disappointing. The pretzel appetizer was excellent. But the spaetzel that came with the Schnitzel was bad - just no other word for it. And there was too much of it relative to the Schnitzel. The pork dumpling soup was also disappointing, as were the desserts. But we failed to order the blueberry cheesecake, the only dessert recommended by our server.

    Absolute must-visit. Such a fun ambiance, great service and great food. Feels like you open a door from Vail straight into the Swiss alps. The decor is warm and inviting, the service is helpful, hospitable and attentive, and the food is authentic without being overly heavy. Will definitely come back whenever I am in Vail!

    All the blogs and TikTok pages were right-- this place has delicious delicious food. Booked with my friend group of 7 and among us we tried half the menu -- rum mulled wine, spiced spiked cider, spaetzel, gnocchi, fondue, and more all delish. I'm usually wary of a restaurant that is decorated too cute because it usually means the food isn't as good but it wasnt the case here. Love love loved it and can't wait to be back.

    Although we had a lovely meal at this restaurant, we let the staff know beforehand that we had a birthday celebration. There was a miscommunication with the staff and I had to remind the staff in front of the birthday person that we had asked for a celebration. We also waited about 10 minutes to greet our waitress. Additionally, we had a plate come out 5 minutes after the rest of the table did, and waited about 15 minutes for another round of drinks.

    Exceptionally long wait after being seated before our server came to the table - with no acknowledgement of us just sitting there. Service continued to be very slow throughout the evening. Food was tasty overall, although the cheese fondue was not very authentic.

    The restaurant is so cute, the chandeliers with pretzels, the cozy tables & chairs with pillows & blankets, the curtains. I loved the ambiance! The Feuerzangenbowle (mulled wine with sugar cube) was a fun interactive drink. The cheese fondue for two appetizer was delicious and came in a cute heart shaped dish. The schnitzel was good, but the spätzle was a little pasty and bland. The schnapps was undrinkable, I couldn't take more than two sips of it. Definitely not like the schnapps I had in Austria. Service was okay, I feel like there were a few lulls, but it was a busy dinner service.
