Fantastic Flavors!

We had a great eating experience. I tried several things I don't usually order because they sounded so unique. It was all fantastic!

Plato's is truly an exceptional dining experience. The service was attentive and went above and beyond. And the food spoke for itself--amazing! The Kalbi style shortrib and onion soubise were unbelievable. We will absolutely be back to check out the inventive and delicious menu and to enjoy the wonderful service. Finally found a place in Aspen worth every penny!

Staff was super. Food was appropriately overpriced for Aspen . Our food was good but not spectacular . Our scallop starter was excellent but my duck was a little rubbery. My friend said his food was "ok" generally . Staff was fun, friendly and very attentive. Not a bad choice at all, but I won't rush back .

Everyone had fish dishes and they were all fantastic. The branzino was among the best I have eaten anywhere. The beet carpaccio was also excellent and beautifully presented. The wine list was small but had excellent choices, both by the glass and the bottle. Another plus was that the restaurant was quiet and made conversation easy. If you want to... More

First of all, the Aspen Meadows resort is and will always be a classic.. The restaurant, Plato's never disappoints and I've been coming for years.

Had an amazing dinner at Plato's. The service was beyond amazing. Thomas, our server, was extremely knowledgable about everything on the menu and answered all of our questions.

Platos offered some of the best food I've seen around aspen in a while. We had the pleasure of meeting chef Aaron during our dining experience and he personally told us about the dish and made sure we were satisfied. Some of the highlights of our meal included a house made ricotta spread, venison tartare, and a braised short rib... More

We visited Plato's after Xmas - everything was excellent, from the food to the service. When our meal was finished, our table could not make a decision on what dessert we wanted, so the server let us try a sample of each, and they were all great.
