Mirabelle Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was terrific, but the waiter could not have cared less about our experience. He actually walked away when we tried to quickly place a drink order. Had he taken our initial order, he'd probably have gotten us to have more than one drink. In an expensive restaurant, when trying to have a lovely evening, it's incredibly unfortunate to find that the conversation is about the disinterested waitstaff.
Mirabelle has the finest food in the Vail Valley thanks to its chef-owner, and a marvelous friendly ambiance inspired by his wife Natalie. The only disappointment was our waiter who was curt and unfriendly (2nd time we have had him) so out of keeping with the rest of the fantastic staff.
This is a wonderful restaurant and unique amongst many great dining establishments in the Vail/Beaver Creek area. Situated in a historic farm house away from the resort vibe, Mirabelle offers a wonderful laid back but elegant experience and a fabulous menu and wine list. This is my favorite restaurant in the Valley!
Excellent food. And service. The daily four course fixed price option of two appetizers , main course of elk, and desert was great (as usual)! The appetizers were unique and tasted wonderful, and the elk with a great complementing sauce was perfectly prepared
Our wedding anniversary, which was advised upon booking and very nicely acknowledged
by the staff, with a surprise special dessert at the end.
Our waiter (AJ) was very informed about the menu choices and the appropriate wine selection,
and a delight to work with throughout the evening.
Prices are high, but this is Beaver Creek, and in this case, we really got what we paid for.
Portions were a bit on the small side. this place is overpriced for the quality of food served. My wife and I both started with the Lobster bisque. it was a good sized bowl and very good. The soup was a bigger portion than the entrée. If not for having the soup I would have left hungry.
We were looking forward to Mirabelle based on the menu and the reviews. The wine list was fine, the service was good. Very nice place, cozy and comfortable.
The food was mixed however. The meat was outstanding, soup was very good, great cheese plate and desserts. However, the fish dishes were average at best, very bland, a bit fishy.
The meat eaters among us had a five star experience, the seafood fanatics not so much (hence the 4 rating averaging the two).
Not sure what to recommend here; maybe go for the meat, and if you want fish, try somewhere else.
We have been wanting to try this Beaver Creek staple for years. It has been there was years so it must be good. Not so on this visit. The decor is very nice (it's like being in your grandmas house). Our waiter was somewhat smug. Halibut cheeks are a rare offering, but were slightly over/cooked and dry. The Monkfish was fine but not memorable. The Asian vegetables were good. All in all, this pricey spot was not worth our visit.
Friday night dinner. The lobster bisque was very good. The filet mignons were also good and cooked exactly as requested. The elk was over cooked & not very good & the two fish entrees were terrible. Halibut cheeks as well as the monkfish were tasteless which is unacceptable, especially at these prices.
Our final night on our 3rd visit to Beaver Creek. We had not eaten at Mirabelle's on previous occasions and were delighted with this choice for our special last night. The menu was interesting - there is a lot of repetition around the Beave but not so at Mirabelles . The wine list was comprehensive and well presented ie in easy to find among a grand list! Quiet atmosphere, happy service who set a nice pace for the dinner ( felt rushed in other places ) . The food was inventive full of texture style and taste - local ingredients , international flavour. Will definitely add to our own list and recommend to friends
Awesome food, great atmosphere, but.... the soup was a reasonable size, my salad was smaller than most garnishes I've gotten at other restaurants. The main course was outstanding, but it was so small I had to stop at Burger King after dinner for a whopper. I was starving ! I did ask for the biggest thing on the menu, because I was so hungry and while it was delicious I definitely could have eaten six of what they put on my plate.... the soup was more substantial than the entree.
Mirabelle has long stood at the top of the list of great restaurants in the Avon/Beaver Creek complex. It is located right at the entrance gate to Beaver Creek and has its own convenient parking on site.
Ambience and service are excellent. For my dinner I chose the foie gras and it was superb. The portion was remarkably generous and exquisite to taste. It was served with a lovely glass of Sauterne, a traditional and excellent accompaniment. For the main course I had the Dover sole sautéed in a classic light butter herb sauce. It was perfection. Thought I was in London. My dining partner had the Colorado rack of lamb and it too was superb. Again potion was quite generous.
We finished off by sharing the chocolate lava cake served with pistachio ice cream. It was a rich, sumptuous moist cake with a luscious semiliquid center. Wonderful.
This is an expensive restaurant but you do get a dining experience that justifies the price. My compliments to owners Nathalie and Daniel Joly on maintaining the high standards of Mirabelle.
Quieter atmosphere than many other of the restaurants in the area, and no young children when we were there. We all had Rack of Lamb which was for the most part quite good (one of the chops was very fatty). Appetizers were very different - fun to try new things. Desserts were very good
Have been dining in Beaver Creek for 15 years and have finally decided to visit Mirabelle. It was overall a very pleasant dining experience. We enjoyed the historic significance of the space, it was warm and cozy inside with a lovely entrance/porch. Only real disadvantage was the distance from the Village itself - getting the shuttle was easy enough, it is just that we prefer to walk to and from (or at least one way) which was not possible at Mirabelle. The food was absolutely delicious and very glad we went - not certain we would visit again though.
Resting on its laurels. Nice enough atmosphere but the food was lackluster at best. Even the amuse buche was bland. The "highly recommended" Dover sole was overcooked and blah, not enough sauce and too thick and bland anyway. Onion soup described as classic was not - which would be fine but it was thin, boring, lacking onion flavor and with dull of chunks of mysterious mushy root vegetables. With a chewy cheese crisp on top instead of melted gruyere. Overpriced menu and wine list, and for the restaurant supposedly the most renowned in Beaver Creek, this was the most boring and blandest food. Even the ice creams were all freezer burnt - and we had three flavors - which is pathetic.
Lovely French themed restaurant in Beaver Creek with marvelous cuisine selections. Thoughtful and knowledgeable wait staff, great wine selection, fantastic desserts and genuine ambience made for a wonderful evening. The chef is obviously highly skilled and experienced and the entire operation appeared pleasant and wholly professional. We will be back. Oh, and ask for Cris as a waiter.
Even though I've lived in the Vail Valley for years, I never knew that the little farmhouse just inside the Beaver Creek entrance gates was a restaurant! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and could not have asked for a more romantic setting. Mirabelle is a Francophile gem masquerading as a cowboy's dream. The picturesque farmhouse is situated against a mountain backdrop, snuggled into the pines and aspens and feels like you're miles away - you'd never guess you were only a few minutes from two world class ski resorts! We were in no hurry so we had drinks in the lounge and snuggled up to the fire. (The seating area is well appointed with comfy loveseats and chairs, furry wraps and blankets, and views of the snowfields just outside.) The bartender made what may be the best Cosmo I've ever had and my husband was very happy with his Manhattan.
When I made the reservation, I requested a cozy table for two and that 's just what we got. We were seated at a lovely table by the window where we could see the snowfall. We chose the asparagus soup and lobster with pork belly for starters and the blue crab spring rolls for the second. Our entrees were out of this world - the roasted elk with blackberry and the halibut cheeks were both phenomenal and completely unexpected. I'm usually a little hesitant to order wild game because of the potentially too gamey flavor but the chef cooked the elk perfectly and the tart/sweet of the blackberry complimented the meat wonderfully. My husband is a fisherman so it's always a treat for him to find halibut cheeks which he lovingly refers to as the best part of the fish.
Our evening was capped off with a beautiful complimentary dessert tray! The chef selected a trio of molten chocolate lava cake, pistachio ice cream, and creme' brulee, each bite more decadent than the previous one.
If you're looking for something different for a special occasion you will love the ambiance and cuisine of Mirabelle. I can't wait to go back!
I've been to Mirabelle a few times but it has been about 10 or 15 years since our last visit. The character of the restaurant, the warmth just as I remembered makes the place very inviting. Perfect for a date or special occasion. The service was okay despite being seated about 20 minutes after our reservation. We ordered drinks at the bar while we waited, the bartender was struggling. Didn't know how to make a manhattan and was about 10 drinks behind. The wine sommelier was excellent and very helpful. I remember the food being better. There were some good dishes, the sweet breads, the ravioli, the foie gras. The entrees, lamb and lobster were just okay and forgettable. Despite the decrease in execution, the atmosphere is worth a visit.
We have come to this Restaurant for years . It has always been our favorite on the Mountain . The last time we had sub par service but cam back because anyone can have a bad night. However this time we brought another couple and was appalled. We ordered wine by the glass and a beer, each had different wine so he poured my wife's wine and had less then a teaspoon in bottle . He went and brought back another bottle and started to pour it on top of the other wine . I asked for a different glass which he made a snarky remark about but did get a different glass and poured what would be the end of that bottle about 1 oz . He went and got a different bottle which he opened and she finally got a glass of wine! He then ask me to hold my beer glass at an angle so he could poor my beer! He took a horrible attitude with us ,so I asked for the manager was very kind and understanding and moved us to a different section. The server there was good and knowledgeable. How ever the the food was sub par I asked the waiter to taste the the toasted Parmesan wafer which was scorched he did and said " oh I wish I hadn't tasted that it is terrible"
My wife's fish was dry and tasted poorly.
I paid over 470 dollars for a sub par meal and had several issues at the very least these difficulties should,have been acknowledged!
The owners are very nice people which I'm sorry that we will not be able to patronize them again ! Because of the issues?
The food is very good, which you would expect at this level restaurant. What was a bit dissapointing is that each course of our chefs tasting menu (with wine pairing) came within a minute or two of the last. We could not help but feel rushed, being pressed through 4 courses within an hour of arrival. Things improved after we expressed that issue to management, so all ended well. We finished our wine, and the souffle was the best we ever tasted.
Mirabelle has been refurbished since I last ate there 4 years ago and the atmosphere is much more welcoming and authentic. The food was outstanding and I would definitely recommend for foodies! This will be a regular for me now and I'm so glad I gave it another try. The food was always good but with the renovations and improved ambience it rates top of my list for the Vail Valley. Give it a try!
Our annual ski trek to the Vail Valley wouldn't be complete without dinning at Mirabelles. The Chefs Tasting Menu is always a pleasure and the ability to order individual aItems a la carte is a great notion other restaurants should adopt. For gourmet meals, superb service, and old world ambience you can't do better in the Rockies! We will continue to return in every trip - and likely more than once!
Situated in the cutest little ranch house just inside the gates to BC Village. Service, ambiance, and appetizers were spot on. Excellent wine list. Entrees left a little to be desired. As far as fine dining in a ski town goes - it's about as good as it gets.
Note to parents, please leave the kids at home for those who want to have a romantic evening - there are plenty of other good restaurants around with more kid friendly menus. You don't need to commandeer the best one in town, or better yet - find a sitter!
