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

Our family ate at Ellina this past weekend (Oct 2016). We all loved the atmosphere. Each person got a different food item. All were praised as being wonderful. We went off-season, so the menu was small. The waiter said the menu was to expand once the ski season started. We will definitely go back. Highly recommended.

We wanted to try somewhere we hadn't ever been, and saw Ellina featured in the summer edition of Eat. Parking wasn't difficult post-Labor Day, and it was a beautiful evening to walk around town before our early dinner. Reservations were not necessary in this off-season, and we ate outside. Our servers were well-timed, well-trained, and unobtrusive. We started with pork... More

Its been sometime since we were here, however TA prompted me to review. We used to come here often, but have had to stay away as a result of our last experience. We sat at the bar with friends who are in the booze business and were familiar with the staff. This usually makes for a great time. We drank... More

I went to Ellina with a fellow participant at a conference. We shared a bottle of wine and I had the Colorado lamb chops. The food was Ok, cooked right but, in light of the above average prices, nothing special. The service was good insofar as the waiter was knowledgeable about wines and provided a good substitute for the wine... More
