Quintessential Aspen Meal

Beautiful Aspen Cuisine in a gorgeous room filled with beautiful Aspen people. Quality service and great food. Smooth and Savvy floor manager Jim did a great job of getting us a table upgrade.

Great atmosphere. You probably will see the who's who of Aspen dining here but I've got to tell you the food was not that special. Prices are high (it is Aspen) so unless you're in the mood for fancy you could probably find a very comparable meal at a much less expensive restaurant.

The food was amazing! I had the Tofu Enchilada and I have never had a vegetarian enchilada this good. The atmosphere was very good and I loved sitting on the top deck and looking right at the mountain. The service was excellent!

Fabulous food. I had lamb and it was perfectly prepared and very tender and tasty. Of course, Colorado lamb is pretty hard to beat so I think I played it safe. But the service was fantastic, drinks were very good, and it has a nice ambiance. I would return.

Always their standard bar menu with some additional choices. Can't beat the quality and the value. Great wines by the glass and the Knob Creek Old Fashion is tops!

The restaurant is fantastic for a romantic meal. The restaurant is a little dark. The food is well decorated, nicely presented and very delicious. Our waiter is very knowledgable and very alert of our every need without us asking. We will come back again when we visit next.

We just returned from a lovely dinner. My husband had the chicken and I had the Trout. We started with the arugula salad with pears. Everything was tasty but after our almost two hour dinner I had diarrhea in the restroom and could barely make it back to our hotel within five blocks because it happened again. This is very...

There are many fine restaurants in Aspen, and many more that try to be. Pinons succeeds all around. Service, food presentation, and taste were all outstanding. The sole special was excellent, the salad was crisp and tasty, coffee was very good as was the dessert we all shared. It was so good we barely noticed the server who effortlessly facilitated...

The service was excellent but the food was not that good. I tasted one soup (special of the day - white asparagus soup with crab), one appetizer (Crispy Oysters with creme fraiche and caviar), and one main (special of the day - gnocchi with rabbit). The soup was EXCELLENT; the oysters were OK (I guess that by the time they... More

Pinons is a fine dining restaurant and it certainly lives up to its reputation. I would recommend for a special occasion - anniversary, birthday etc. or if you are looking for a sophisticated dining experience. There is a great bar menu available if you are scared of the Aspen prices - $35 for 2 courses. Totally worth it. The service... More
