This was our best dinner in Aspen and we had several very good ones. The dining room is small, quiet and romantic as opposed to the bustling restaurants in town. The provide a free shuttle from town.

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!

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.

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.

Hello Sherry, No we do not have a designated dress code. Our guests have been known to come in jeans or a suit, whichever occasion one is celebrating.

It depends on the kids & their tastes & experiences. Platos itself will not have an issue with children. It is very nice, but it is Aspen so you see a little bit of everything. Gluten free...I'd only be guessing. Sorry.
