Ellina was a wonderful experience. We started with a delicious tuna tartar and bruchetta, and then had the to die for lamb chops! Finally there chocolate cake was a killer dessert. Overall wonderful food and staff.

I will never recommend anybody to go to this place. The temperature outside was -10c, we went in and they told us to wait 10 minutes for our table to be ready. They even ask us to take out our coats and leave them at the Coat Room. 5 minutes later they said our loud: "party of 6, you don't... More

Our concierge at the Jerome sent us to dine at Ellina. Unfortunately, our experience wasn't great. For me this falls into one of those trendy, too cool for school restaurants. Hey I'm all for being hip and beating your own drum, but then you'd better live up to the hype. We were greeted nicely by the hostess but it kinda... More

Ellina was incredible. Over the past 7 weeks, I've eaten at about 15 restaurants in Aspen. Ellina was (by far) the best. The ambiance, the staff, the service, and the food..all terrific. Highly, highly recommend.

We sat upstairs outside on a chilly night w our dogs. They were dog friendly, made no bones about them sitting w us, which was great. Had some delicious appetizer of soup and octopus and shared a special of mushroom ravioli. And a delicious bottle of wine. Very welcoming, turned on heaters for us and got us blankets to keep...

We took advantage of the 30% off-season menu prices and everything but one dish was excellent (french cut chicken was amazing as was the braised short rib from the bar menu but we were disappointed with the chicken milanese). Wish we could have found room at the bar as it had the great spirit of young locals who know each... More

Ellina was on our radar for a recent trip to Aspen. Liked it so much we went a second time! From the street you have no idea what lies below. After a walk down the stairs you are greeted by aa very sexy looking space with excellent lighting and decor. We sat at the bar and enjoyed some of the... More
