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

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. He was also very informative when helping us chose a bottle of wine. The chef also came to our table several times and checked up on us, which is such a rarity... More

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. We were even honored to have Chef Aaron come to our table and... More

Our family enjoyed an outstanding five course meal at Plato's. Each plate was exceptionally prepared and presented.....the food cooked to perfection. Chef Schmude even took the time to meet and greet us and to explain the dishes that we ordered. Service was excellent! A memorable evening of fine dining and atmosphere.
