This restaurant is a bit out-of-the-way for Aspen as it is at the Aspen Meadows in the West End. It's worth the trip out to the West End to have an excellent meal in a beautiful environment!

We had 12 people for my wife's 77th birthday and everything was wonderful. The dining room is very inclusive and well set up. The food was as good as we have had lately. especially the radish salad and the short ribs. The staff was welcoming and attentive.

It doesn't deserve more appreciation after not fresh oysters, very salty bouillabaisse, dry lamb osso bucco,. But pastry work was above Standard, try creme brulee And apple pie despite the fact that pastry chef herself was not present.

The food was exceptionally well cooked and seasoned perfectly. The first two courses were great, sadly the main dish reached the table only luke warm. The flavor was great what I had, sadly I was not given the opportunity to experience the chefs talents at the peak because the server was apparently preoccupied with something else. I will likely give... More

While we stayed at the Meadows, we were having only breakfast at the Resort...eating in town for other meals... Breakfasts were great - a huge buffet was always available, as were a la carte items. Service was attentive and personable. Prices reasonable (certainly for Aspen!!).

The most delicious and lovely meal I have had in Aspen. The view alone is incredible but the food is detailed and carefully prepared gourmet approach. The staff was also perfectly professional...a rarity in Aspen.

I would highly recommend eating here. The atmosphere right when you walked in was great! Such lovely decor. It felt very comfortable yet private. Service was very professional yet friendly. The server clearly knew what she was doing and always made sure we had everything we needed. My favorite part however was by far the food. Everything on the plate... More

Delightful dinner. All three courses were absolutely delicious! Menu has a great selection. Service was fantastic. Watching the sunset from the table was unbelievable. One of the best restaurants in Aspen hands down!

Eat lunch outside for quiet meal, fine service, great fish tacos and burgers, among other things. Come early; it fills up quickly. Not cheap, but quality counts.
