Amazing dining experience!

The atmosphere is lovely and I especially love dining in the summertime on the outdoor deck with the gorgeous view. The menu is surprising and delightful every season.

Our waitress TJ was professional and recommended a variety of delicious dishes. I tried items that are not my usual fare and was not disappointed once. The Brussel Sprouts and steak were amazing.

From the Bauhaus Art Movement inspired building overlooking Aspen mountains on the grounds of the Aspen Meadows Resort (home of the internationally famous Aspen Institute), to the imaginative menu of perfectly served food and drink, our Plato's evening was magical and it will certainly be our destination whenever in Aspen.

We were fortunate enough to dine at Plato's on our last night of a week-long stay in Aspen. Plato's was far and away the best of the six incredible Aspen restaurants we dined in during our ski vacation. There were five adults at our table and we all shared. We really enjoyed the oxtail ravioli and grass-fed marrow as appetizers.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Platos. Our server was friendly, polite, knowledgable and available (but didn't hover)! She recommended a very affordable wine that was delicious and a great pairing for our game hen! The flavors were great--just enough and not too much of the jalenpeno in the mushrooms. The ambiance was perfect and I know there is... More

My wife and I came into eat at Plato's and had an incredible evening. To start we loved the Diver Scallops, it was my first time trying scallops and they were awesome. The smoked soy on top was the perfect touch. We then had the Oxtail Ravioli and were blown away by the flavor combos. For our main course, my... More

Thank you for choosing Plato's Restaurant. I am pleased you tried something you hadn't tried before and loved the scallops. That attests to the caliber of Chef Aaron's food. Everything he creates, lends itself to those who may not have tasted a particular item or dish and found how delicious it truly can be. I hope to see both of... More

I had an early dinner at Plato's and the staff are super kind to accommodate the schedule and arrange the shuttle to pick me up in town. I arrived just before getting dark and the view surrounding the restaurant is beautiful even in winter time. I'd imagine it will be gorgeous in summer time on the meadow. The dinner was... More

Had a reservation for 7 pm for 4 adults, 1 child, and 1 infant. Arrived and had cocktails at the Hefner Lounge - in front of a cozy fire where our nephew could even toast marshmallows while we sipped... Christy was the BT - warm, engaging, and offered several choices when I was undecided. When we were escorted into the... More
