We had dinner at Plato's last night and it was a celebration of sorts for a college freshman heading off to school this week. The menu choices were outstanding and the food was professionally prepared and appealing to the eye. Everything tasted amazing from the wine through the appetizers, entrees and desserts. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

The only thing this place has going is the setting -- if you don't mind the location outside of town. The views are absolutely stunning although the building is a little sterile and stark. The food is very disappointing and expensive. The service was frankly downright unprofessional. Our waitress didn't know what she was doing. What a disappointment as this... More

The food,service, and hospitality at Plato's restaurant is #1. I've been in the restaurant business for over 30 years and can say i would be proud to be a part of Plato's team. The best food I think I have ever had. The staff was friendly and provided exceptional service.

This restaurant is part of the Aspen Meadows complex where a lot of "think tank" type events are held; it is close by the Aspen Music Festival Grounds. This restaurant is open to the public and is worth going a tiny bit away from the main part of Aspen to visit. The setting is great, the food is wonderful (the... More

The dining room is attractive and suggested better results. Our waitress was less knowledgeable about the dishes than we would have liked. My main dish, the rack of lamb, was very good but the sides were not well heated.

This is one of the best restaurants in the country. Every dish over several courses for our party of 6 was stellar. The originality of the menu, the precision of the preparation and the artful presentation tell you this is rarefied country. Service, ambiance, and heavenly view made for a night to remember. The Avalanche bloomer stole the first course... More
