Excellent service with a breathtaking view and a choice of dinning inside or out on the patio. I had the halibut dinner that was amazing with sliced potatoes on the top for a perfect texture. Overall great experience and would go there again!

Break away from the everyday tourist eateries in downtown Aspen and head 2 minutes west to Plato's. Located at the Aspen Meadows Resort, Plato's is peaceful, upscale, cozy and a true culinary delight you don't want to miss! Upon arrival, Bonnie spoiled us with attention like we were the only guests there. Then we were mesmerized by the floor to... More

The restaurant has a very stark, Scandinavian feel with widely spaced tables and an unbeatable view over the Roaring Fork Valley. The food is always creative and well prepared. Interesting mixed drinks are on tap. You often run into a celebrity of someone of note attending one of the Aspen Festivals. Although a bit out of town, its a great... More

First time in Aspen and we were looking for an upscale restaurant to have a nice dinner with a view. Plato's exceeded every expectation. We sat outside, the weather was perfect and the tables are set up to block the sun if you wish. We had the scallops which were cooked perfectly with a delicious sauce. Next the steak tartar... More

Morning breakfast was a delicious omelette -- made to order with the ingredients you select. It was served with a small bit of bibb lettuce and tomato -- which went perfect. Burgers are excellent there too.

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
