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!

“An escape from the ordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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 ceiling views of beautiful Aspen. Each course we ordered was prepared with the freshest ingredients. The creativity of presentation made you hesitate to admire before consuming. Highly recommend the day boat scallops and daily oysters if they happen to have them as your beginnings. The Colorado rack of lamb was a coffee and lavender crusted French lamb rack that I chose to have prepared "chefs choice". Halibut and salmon was the freshest fish we ate all week. Mouth watering and full of flavor. Hats off to Chef Aaron and Mat. Can't wait to come back!

“Starkly Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

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 experience.

TIP: Go before sunset and watch the sky change as night comes over the Roaring Fork Valley.

“Beautiful setting excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

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 which had a beautiful presentation and excellent unique flavors. Last was the Halibut, again cooked perfectly. The service was friendly and attentive. Duffey was great and he made sure we had an excellent experience. We will come back and will recommend to our friends.

“Nice setting and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

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.
