Larkspur did an amazing job for our wedding reception. The location is beautiful and offers a variety of options for the ceremony and reception. They are comprehensive in the services they provide to include food, beverage/drink, cake, accessories for wedding (i.e dance floor), etc. The food was amazing and everybody at our wedding could not stop talking about how good it was. The cake was perfect and they worked with our florist to decorate the cake to our liking. The staff were absolutely professional and ensured all of our needs were met. We were so happy to have our wedding here and were able to enjoy every second of the night! More...

I've had the privilege of working with The Larkspur on several weddings and events over the years. Their food is outstanding, the location is perfect and the staff is always kind and professional. I whole-heartedly recommend them!

Really good food and a nice alternative to dinning on the slopes during ski season

Our waiter Thomas was awesome. We were trying to catch a shuttle and he got us our meal, drinks and check on the double. Food and drinks were great too.

The 5 onion soup was good, but not as good as the lobster BLT. The onion soup was a little bland. Very fresh, and served piping hot. The lobster was VERY tender and as a whole it was worth every penny. More...

The Lark burger rocks! Or is it that after a great day of skiing tastes fantastic? Well, if you are in Golden Peak at the end of the day, go and find out!

Larkspur is one of the best options for group event venues in Vail! The food quality is phenomenal, views are superb, and the entire team of catering & culinary is responsive and professional. Many of our groups at Manor Vail hold off-site events at their very convenient location across the street at Golden Peak. We have heard nothing but rave reviews and continue to recommend Larkspur to our clients and guests!

We LOVE working at Larkspur! Not only is it the perfect venue to be married, but the staff is so wonderful to work with. They are great at communicating information and helping our team when we are onsite setting up for a wedding or event. We highly recommend Larkspur for your wedding! More...

I honestly feel like a review isn’t even enough to describe The Larkspur. Everything completely exceeded our expectations and the staff was absolutely amazing. The Larkspur took the stress completely out of planning a wedding. We had a smaller wedding-about 40 people, and I wanted something more “laid back”. We only utilized the restaurant and bar area for the reception and it was perfect. The all inclusiveness was also something I was looking for.

We got married mid-October, knowing that it was a possibility it could snow-and it sure did! It was perfect for us. They offered to move us inside, but I was dead set on having it outside, and all of the guests loved it too! We were lucky enough to get the beauty of both the fall colors and snow.

Our guests are still RAVING about the food a month later. We also opted for the s’mores bar which was a big hit too.

Thank you for making our big day so seamless and special. Every single person individually did something that was completely above and beyond our expectations.

After hosting a rehearsal dinner, welcome party and a farewell brunch for our son's wedding in July 2018 we were very happy with Larkspur Events and Dining! We thought the food was terrific and Larkspur's ability to stay within our budget and estimate how much people would eat and drink was very accurate. I would use Larkspur again, everything from the quality of the food, to the professional service and the organization of the events was top notch! More...

Always a wonderful experience dining at Larkspur. I have had a waiter named Dan the past few times I’ve brought clients there and he has been absolutely incredible. Very attentive, knowledgeable, and has elevated the experience of vacationing in Vail. I have always enjoyed my time at Larkspur very much. Highly recommend it! More...

Have been going here every year we are at Golden Peak for 5 years now. Nice menu for kids and adults. Loved the Lobster and Rocket Club and French Onion Soup yesterday after a morning of skiing. Daniel was a great server. Larkspur never disappoints! More...

Ryan and I met in Vail, were engaged in Vail, and decided it would only be perfectly fitting to get married in Vail! As we started to talk about choosing a venue, we decided that the context of our wedding weekend needed to be “inclusive.” We were looking for a partner who could make our 100 guests feel like they were gathering for a special family dinner, while also elevating the “party mode” experience. Moreover, since I would be planning everything on my own, I was looking for a thoughtful, helpful, and organized team. From our first meeting, we knew we would be in the best of hands with Larkspur! Isabel and the Larkspur family made the planning process easy and fun. At our tasting, we were able to sit down with Chef Bill to share our ideas for a custom designed cake to match our invitations, and our wish was his command (and it turned out picture perfect)! And the food…oh my gosh THE FOOD! We chose the Creekstone Farms Strip Loin and the Ahi Persillade for our seated dinner entrees, and absolutely loved every bite! Our friends and family are still raving (over a month later) about our wedding being “one of the best meals they’ve ever had!” Perhaps the best part about Larkspur is the way the evening flowed together. From the beautiful ceremony lawn with sweeping views of the Gore Range, to the cocktail bar and patio, and finishing the evening in the versatile and open great room with the dance floor, it was as if we had four events in one. All in all, our wedding day was perfect, and it could not have been possible without the love and hospitality provided by our friends at Larkspur!! More...

We hired Larkspur for a next day brunch for our September wedding. I was so burnt out from planning the rest of the wedding, that I didn't want to make any further decisions. Their events coordinator contacted me to make menu selections, but planned the rest of the event on their own. The patio was beautiful, and the food was amazing! Everyone raved about the brunch, and the staff was so nice and friendly. I was so happy we went with them for our brunch. More...

GORGEOUS VENUE, AMAZING FOOD, PERFECT WEDDING!

We couldn't be happier with our wedding at the Larkspur. We spent tons of time researching wedding venues in Vail Valley before we chose the Larkspur, and it was the right decision. The staff was absolutely professional, competent, and so much fun to work with. They were ahead of us at every step of the planning process, and every small detail of our wedding day was flawlessly executed. We just showed up and enjoyed the evening. Even without flowers and candlelight, the venue is gorgeous and elegant. Most importantly, our guests are still talking about the OUTRAGEOUSLY DELICIOUS food and great drinks. :) Don't be fooled by their very reasonable pricing--it doesn't get any better than this for a Colorado mountain wedding. Thanks Larkspur! More...

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Larkspur and it was the perfect venue for us! Outdoor wedding ceremony and inside dance party! (The great room was perfect for that.) The restaurant for dinner was absolutely beautiful, modern, classy, and best of all the chef's pride themselves on their food. We had specific dietary requests for our wedding (vegan & gluten free) and they were so excited to create a menu that was delicious that accommodated our request. Everyone LOVED the food, and set us a part from other weddings they attended! From start to finish we had the best time planning our wedding with the Larkspur team. And they truly delivered on our vision. Did I mention we had a "fried bar" for our late night snacks?! Two types of french fires, fried pickles, onion rings and an assortment of v/gf dipping sauces!! :) Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Larkspur. Highly recommend! More...

We didn't have the ceremony at Larkspur, just the reception dinner after the wedding. It was spectacular. The food, service and beauty of the venue were all outstanding. So many people think "beach" when they are looking for a destination wedding... but the lovely European village of Vail, nestled at the foot of the mountains, was stunning. Larkspur made the bride and groom's dream wedding a reality. It was stunning. More...

Our wedding at Larkspur was truly a dream. We were married in the technical "offseason" (first weekend in May) but it was sunny and 70 degrees and a beautiful weekend for us. Every single staff member at Larkspur went above and beyond for our special day. Isabel was also so wonderful to work with. She did not overlook any details and brought everything together so seamlessly. Our friends and family are still raving about the amazing food, drinks, desserts, and killer background view during our ceremony on the West Lawn. Our wedding in Vail was a destination wedding, and Larkspur was the best choice for that hands down. They handled food, beverages, ceremony chairs, and several other details. It was very "all-inclusive" so to say, which made destination planning such a breeze (and fun!). Highly highly recommend hosting your wedding (or any event really) here! Could not be happier with how things turned out. More...

The Larkspur exceeded all expectations for our rehearsal dinner. We worked with Isabel before the event to make sure everything was ready including a large menu selection to pick from and drinks as well. Isabel was fantastic throughout the process - responsive, helpful and patient with us as we made our decisions.

Once we got to the Larkspur for the event, we were blown away by how nice everything was. They went above and beyond to make sure our event was top notch. The food was fantastic and the service was superb.

I cannot recommend the Larkspur enough and will definitely come back here if I ever host a large event in Vail again.

The staff is professional, experienced and knowledgeable. Consider time of year, time of event and back up plan for weather changes and be willing to flow with Plan B. Larkspur will accommodate you and your guests as the event transpires. Food and Service were 5 Star. More...

Larkspur made planning our wedding incredibly easy and the event turned out even better than I expected!!! The staff was extremely helpful with all our questions and concerns leading up to the big day. They made it very easy to coordinate as they were able to supply almost everything so we had no outside vendors except flowers, DJ, and photographer!!! Since they did not have an event the day prior to the wedding we were able to set everything up the day before which was a huge stress removed from the wedding day. The food was beyond delicious!!! We had multiple guest tell us it was the best wedding food they have ever had!! As well, we had Larkspur do our cake. It came out even better then picture we provided and was delicious!!!!! Overall, we had an amazing experience with Larkspur and would recommend that they are anyone’s short list for a Vail wedding!! More...

My wedding exceeded all of my expectations and it would not have been as perfect without Larkspur. Isabel and the rest of the Larkspur staff were so attentive, friendly and detail oriented. The venue is beautiful, the food is exceptional, and all of my guests were blown away by the experience at Larkspur. I would highly recommend having an event at Larkspur! More...

We found Larkspur and Isabel, our contact person, to be extremely helpful in helping us know what to do and how to do it. If we needed a personal opinion about almost everything we really counted on what Isabel said. I felt like Isabel was almost like a family member helping us make it look just great but being respectful of the money we were spending. The food was perfect, the service was too and Isabel was personally making sure everyone got where they needed to on time. She was certainly behind the scenes making it all come off without any problems. Thank you Larkspur for a really superb wedding!! More...

We had our wedding reception at the Larkspur on labor day weekend 2016. Everything was excellent@

Extremely organized and so responsive to all our questions and requests over our entire planning process.

The set up was absolutely perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised when all of our décor had been perfectly handled by the Larkspur staff - when our helper arrived to help with set up, she learned she had virtually nothing to do.

The food was absolutely spectacular. From the gorgeous presentation and taste of the table pickles to the amazingly delicious entrees (lamb and the Petaluma chicken) to the gorgeous chocolate wedding cake, we could not have been happier. The food was inventive, beautiful and expertly prepared.

Everyone complemented the amazing views from our dinner on the lawn. It was truly an unforgettable location and experience for us and for our guests.

When the sun went down, the donuts and coffee in the bar area were a highlight for everyone (especially our kids!!) and the cozy atmosphere you created in the bar area to wind things down was awesome.

Every person we spoke to on your staff from our initial conversations and visit to the end of the night was friendly and attentive. You truly have an awesome team in place.

Everything was absolutely impeccable and we are truly appreciative and thankful for everything you did to make our day perfect. You exceeded expectations in every way. We spend a lot of time in Vail and we considered just about every venue between Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek and Keystone. I am confident that we absolutely made the right choice. Thank you for so perfectly executing our vision of a casually elegant, but very special dinner with our closest family and friends. We will never forget our amazing day, and we thank you for making it so special. We look forward to visiting you again during the winter season! - Erica and Mike Porach

The Larkspur is such a gorgeous venue it requires very little in the way of added decor. The room absolutely glows with the golden accents. The staff is outstanding (especially Isabel!) and the food was (according to all the guests) the "best" wedding food they'd ever had. The outdoor ceremony site is breathtaking. Best wedding ever!

We were planning the rehearsal dinner at Larkspur from Boston! We needed guidance and support. Isabel took us under her wing immediately. We made every decision over the phone. In each conversation Isabel patiently listened to our concerns, graciously answered all our questions, and gently made suggestions when she knew we were having trouble deciding. Not only did Isabel help us plan food and drink, she carefully planned the layout of the room and took care of ordering the table flowers. As soon as we met Isabel, on the morning of the rehearsal dinner, we knew everything would be perfect. We also wish to thank the bar and wait staff. Each individual took great care of our guests. Our family and friends could not say enough about them. Additionally, we would commend the chefs!! The meal was outstanding!!
Finally, the layout at Larkspur is so inviting. For our July event, we began on the patio, with the beautiful views for cocktails, mingled into the bar area for more greetings and conversation, and then on warm and inviting private dining area. We loved our experience at Larkspur. Our advice...book now!! Thank you Isabel!

I dined with my boyfriend at Larkspur last Sunday night, the last night of our vacation in Vail. I can honestly say that we had a wonderful experience. From the elegantly prepared food, the extensive wine list, the excellent service, and the relaxed atmosphere, this restaurant has it all. The food was so delicious! This will be one of our best memories of Vail and I highly recommend it to everyone! More...

This restaurant was the best experience I had in Vail on my most recent visit. The interior is cool and inviting, the server was the best I have EVER had, and I made a point to tell the managers of his abilities. The food was tasty and the wine list was impeccable. Not everyone can afford $1000 bottles and the selection was broad and user friendly. While the restaurant was jammed we never felt neglected nor rushed. I am waiting until I can return again.

A fabulous restaurant with very contemporary feel. Dined at Christmas with a tasting menu with wine tasting for each course. Food was innovative, perfectly prepared. Server was young & had a bit of an attitude, but everyone else was fantastic, particularly the wine steward who was terrific and knowledgeable. All in all, a superior dining experience in a town where there are many good experiences. More...
