Quietly removed from the center of town in a magnificent setting, the grounds and facility are outstanding. Plato's restaurant is very understated but should not be underrated. Outside dining under the umbrella provided a perfect view of the mountains and quiet space away from it all. Lunch was delicious. We split a club sandwich and salad with a side of... More

We happened to be in Aspen over our anniversary, so chose Plato's for our special dinner. It is a lovely spot, with a small dining room and very attentive staff. Limited menu is fine (and apparently changes regularly so no point in reeling off what we ordered). REALLY pricey, even for Aspen

We had a variety from the menu- Crabcakes, Squash Blossoms, Diver Scallops, and Ricotta for starters- Halibut, Filet, Lamb, Chef Burger, Chicken, and kiddos had spaghetti and burgers for our main-(nice touch with the young adult menu)...

We ate there several times last summer after attending a music festival concert. The first time, there was a large event on the patio so we ate in the bar. The burgers were to our liking, fries excellent. Wine pours very generous. All good. The 2nd time we ate there, we were served on the patio. Had the same exact... More

Great location, view. Food can be hit or miss. When it is a hit, it is a home run out of the park! It just depends on the staff, which is mostly transient seasonal. Some of the best meals are made when the Swiss Hotelier students are in for their work practical. Take your chances and you might be pleasantly... More

It was a great restaurant for what it was the only negative thing I could say is there was just a little bit too much time in between courses. The staff was very friendly, the location was good. I believe they did a good job with the ambience. It was not that busy and I don't know if it's just... More

Ah, you've been with us in the summer. Yes, Davis Deck is surely a treat. When the weather warms up and the foliage pops out, there is no better patio deck in Aspen, other then the top of Aspen Mountain. Thank you for your visit. More

That is by far my favorite restaurant. It may be a little off the beaten path but it is worth it. The food and the service were all amazing. One of the best dinning experiences I have ever had in my entire life. Highly recommend it to any person who is looking for an amazing meal anytime of the year.... More
