I love the ever changing menu. In the summertime Plato's sources most of their ingredients from local, organic farms and butchers. They are always cooking what's seasonal. The view is also really spectacular.

I was lucky enough to experience a wine dinner at Plato's recently. The meal was spectacular, the I still dream of the duck cassoulet that started the dinner. They paired every course beautifully with an amazing Michael David wine, including two varietals from their Inkblot series. I don't know that I could have asked for more. Service was stellar, the...

if we define Aspen as a refined but intimate venue, where the beauty of the landscapes combined with luxury and sophistication but the permanent feeling of relaxed and intimate atmosphere makes a unique destination, Plato's Restaurant at Aspen Meadows represents the best of this town. I visited the best restaurants in New York, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Mexico city, and... More

The restaurant had a $120 per person menu. Most people at our table enjoyed the quality of the food. Service was good. Not many people there so it was intimate.

Having gone to dinner as a celebration for the holidays, our family was blown away by Plato's. The cuisine is top notch, and the Chef obviously knows what he's doing. The service is smooth, friendly, and professional, and the venue is breath taking. With full bellies, we were saddened when our meal was over, but vowed to make Plato's a... More

The ingredients for my dish were white beans, lobster sausage, and fish. They could have put more beans and the lobster sausage was mixed with a cheap ingredient so they could have included more. The fish was one inch wide and three inches long. Too small for $23. My husband and son enjoyed their steaks, but $42 was more than... More

Everything was just amazing. Our Yorkie Einstein enjoyed the walking trails and especially the babbling brook where he unexpectedly got a mini bath.

We were looking for a place for my wife to invite me to dinner, the excuse being my last birthday that occurred a couple of months beforehand. We read about Plato's and decided to drive up in the morning to see the place and if it was romantic enough, to come for dinner. It was, so we made a reservation.... More

Being in the West End of Aspen Plato's is not in the core downtown dining area. But if you're looking for great food and a stunning al fresco experience try Plato's and chef Todd Slossberg's wonderful menu.
