Pricey old school restuarant

We picked this restaurant after reviewing a few highly rated restaurants in Aspen to celebrate our Anniversary. We skied all day so wanted an early reservation at 6:45 which was accepted the night before and we were seated on arrival. The restaurant provides for a quiet dinner location as the sound levels are very acceptable to carry a quiet conversation.... More

We went here on friend's recommendations and were not disappointed. We arrived a little early, no troubles, and were seated at the bar. Small, very busy but no view. Interior decoration is plain though the food is the outstanding feature. Staff helpful and the wind list is extensive though the sommelier did not make an appearance on the night we... More

located on a second floor in aspen it seems to be small and crowded (and it kind of is). the thing is that the food is very good and it is always full! Fantasticly decorated with very big photographs that almost seem alive and although a little uncomfortable (we prefer bigger spaces and high dealings) the experience was good. Great... More

Food is of course, very good. but the price is just too high. Wine is well selected but again way over marked up. i guess that is why in all dozen or more years I have been coming to aspen this was only the 2nd time we have eaten there.

Pinons always delivers consistent food and incredible service. The host is warm and gracious making you feel at home when you walk through the door. The wine steward is knowledgable and friendly with great suggestions every time. The service is always attentive and never rushed. From the bread to the bread pudding the food is delicious!! Great place as always!

Four of us had dinner at Pinon's last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The mushroom soup was the best I have ever tasted. And, the entrees were excellent -- trout, chicken and the veal chop. The key lime pie was also delicious. The service was first class and there were affordable wines on the wine list. We will be back... More

During my recent visit to Aspen for New Years, we ate at Pinons for our last dinner in town. Unknowingly, we had saved the best for last! The service is outstanding, the ambiance pleasant and the food spectacular. I cannot say enough about this restaurant.

Pinons has a nice $35 prix-fixe bar menu, but it isn't as well-developed as some others in the area. The pork tenderloin is nothing special, nor is the scallop ravioli in lobster marsala. Frankly, the best part of our meal was the bread basket, which featured an outstanding fruit-studded pumpernickel.

Always GREAT, never disappoints!! Freddy salad is always good and the rack of lamb yummy! We have been going for almost 30 years, and will continue to put Pinions always at the top of our list of favorites!!
