Terrific food and service at this resort restaurant

I am normally not inclined to eat at a resort restaurant, but Plato's takes "hotel food" to an extraordinary level. Great food - breakfast, lunch and dinner with wonderful hospitality. Steaks, seafood, and "game" selections were all wonderful. The only negative - inside ambiance, and this place has... read more

Thank you for appreciating our efforts to provide exceptional food in a hotel setting. Our Bauhaus décor is very clean and simple in its design, and not necessarily to everyone's taste. Yet, for those who appreciate the architecture it is a beautiful space. Please, let us know when you return and we will try our best to exceed your expectations. More

Stayed at the Aspen Medows and had lunch and dinner here and was very impressed! This is worth the trip if you are staying anywhere near by! The scallops, crispy egg salad, and salmon were all perfection, and finished with the chocolate dessert,,,,delicious! Our lunch of salmon Caesar salad was also outstanding!

We have been wanting to try Platos for a long time. Just never worked out. Finally made it there and we were so happy to have ventured out of town. The experience was amazing!!

Restaurant came highly recommended by our concierge. the views are truly spectacular. Our server Ryan was great and saved the night from copmplete disaster! I ordered a wild game carpaccio as an appetizer, and when I cut into it is was nearly frozen. Obviously prepared much earlier and put in the fridge! He took it back and gave an oyster... More

We had excellent service, delicious food and a great table on the patio on a warm night. This restaurant is out of the mainstream of Aspen proper, so makes for a peaceful evening where you can enjoy the scenery and conversation! I recommend it!

We chose Platos based on excellent Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately, despite the views, we weren't overly impressed. The food was average - French onion soup too salty, sea bass a little dry, and my husband didn't care for his veal. The chocolate dessert was good. Service was friendly but somewhat lacking . . . our plates sat empty for awhile,... More

We thought it was just ok as far as the overall experience. The service was very good. We were there after dark so did not get to see the great views. The decor is nice.

This was my first time back at Plato's in some time and the food, while great before, is somehow even better. While in Aspen for the week my family dined all over Aspen and nothing compared to Plato's. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing.
