We were in town for a wedding and just stumbled on this place. Great location, was a sunny day and the square was full of people. Food was very good, service good too. Reasonably priced for Aspen. Great outdoor seating.

Food was excellent - albeit pricey - highly recommend the brocollini and scallops. Service was not very good - had to wait VERY long for our food (I think the waiter forgot about us).

We ate here last night for the first time, and really enjoyed it. Since food in Aspen is generally good, we look for a lovely ambiance (preferably outdoors) and interesting, but not weird, food combinations. The pizza & pasta (homemade) were really good, as were the salads. Sorbets were also homemade. All in all, a very good meal. The added bonus is the excellent location next to the fountain with great people watching and live classical music from Aspen Music School students.

The service was horrible. Waited for 45 minutes for apps and found out that our waiter forgot to order them. Asked for bread and butter got 4 pieces of bread and we were 5 at the table. Never got the butter. Waited for our drinks and water for 30 minutes. Our waiter did not even "attempt to make up" for the lack of service. Will NOt be returning

It was a hot day and the setting for Above the Salt was perfect. Trees for shade and then umbrellas over the tables. I'm sure the restaurant pays a fortune for this location so it is a little pricey.

We had the scallops (4 large), the Italian paninni and the shrimp pasta. All very nicely presented and very tasty, particularly the scallops. Service was friendly and prompt.

Aspen and Vail have the advantage of not being very high in elevation so outdoor seating thrives in the summer. Some other resorts are too high to support much outdoor dining.
