This is one of the best restaurants in the country. Every dish over several courses for our party of 6 was stellar. The originality of the menu, the precision of the preparation and the artful presentation tell you this is rarefied country. Service, ambiance, and heavenly view made for a night to remember. The Avalanche bloomer stole the first course... More

Truly a place that you could recommend to anyone who loves food and wine. Literally everything ordered by those in our party of six was a home run. Best view in Aspen. Best service. In my opinion, AaronSchmude is a new super-star among chefs. He has put together a talented team. Although some at our table expressed concern that too... More

If you're looking for a superior dining experience in Aspen, look no further than Plato's at the Aspen Meadows Resort. Not only is the setting unforgettable, but Chef Schmude and his staff have crafted a delectable menu that includes, among other wonderful creations an Onion Soubise with Pedro Ximenez that takes rich and delicious to new heights. My husband had... More

We had excellent service on a recent trip to Plato's and the place is beautiful, but the food was good, not great. The pork and bass dishes were fabulous; the chicken, salmon and burger; however, were only good. We had had better similar dishes elsewhere. Our waiter Tom took very good care of us and we had a lovely evening... More

I came to Aspen for the weekend to visit my daughter who has been living there for the summer. She did some research and decided to make us reservations for dinner at Plato's restaurant which is connected to Aspen Meadows Resort. I couldn't have been happier with our experience. We were immediately greeted by a cheerful hostess who made us... More

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
