Diner Reviews
  • "To celebrate my fiance's birthday, we dined outdoors at bb's, which has a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains. The server, Chris, was exceptional; he was able to make recommentations, all with the right touch of humor and class. The menu was unique and the food had perfect layers of flavors that added to the overall experience. I highly recommend bb's for foodies and people who are looking for something different - you will not be disappointed."

  • "The food at bb's is always delicious, and I have sampled many entrees over the years. The staff is friendly and efficient whether you're eating inside or out on the spacious deck. It's fun and intimate, and a great place to have a party. They often change the menu items depending on the season, and always have fresh fish choices with inventive preparations. This is a local favorite that visitors would be lucky to find!"

  • "Great service, but not sure the menu does the entres justice. Lobster pasta was fantastic. Roasted chicken was outstanding. The salmon on the pureed peas was good, but would have been better with a more substantial side. Great service."

  • "We wanted to have a nice dinner before a drive back to Denver after a great July 4th weekend. Unfortunately the food really came up short. Two of us got the special clam/lobster bake and it was a border line disaster. The lobster bisque soup was completely flavorless. The main course of lobster and clams was ok but nothing special. The dessert was terrible. It was billed as a blueberry cobbler and tasted more like a dry blueberry muffin. I saw other diners sending it back. We also ordered creme brûlée and sent that back because it was awful. Our waitress said she would take it off the bill and didn't."

  • "I went there because it had been well-reviewed and was surprised that the food was not better. The staff were very nice and it was gret to eat outdoors. They also didn't have the things they listed as having on the menu-twice that happened. It was fine."

  • "This is one of those terrific Aspen restaurants that serves excellent food in a relaxed and attractive environment. We had a great experience."

  • "Had a wonderful time. Food was very good and somewhat unusual and inventive. Server was terrific. Had a nice outdoor table with great views. "

  • "Having changed their menu from a traditional appetizer Soup or Salad and entree to a set of tapas dishes while preserving some of the best dishes from the original menu makes BB'S a place to go for sharing a nice evening with a group of people or just a pleasant evening with your spouse or significant other."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "b.b.'s menu is primarily small plates and samplings. It's best for sharing dishes with friends. There's a good variety. We shared the roasted sardines, pierogies 3 ways, kale and sprouts salad (delicious), and shrimp toast. A great way to get a number of different tastes and cuisines at one time."

  • "My wife and I were attending a late night jazz concert so we were looking for a place to have a light meal and a glass of wine. We had never eaten at BB's even though we are long time Aspen locals. What a find! The tapas were outstanding and the wine list extensive. It was one of the best meals we have enjoyed in a long time. We will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The new tasting menu is refreshingly tasty, some new additions that really fill the bill. The staff is spot on wine selecting, and the waiter was helpful with how much to order. Everything was fresh and flavorful, and we did linger as long as we wanted at the table. Good place to have conversation and enjoy your food at reasonable pace."

  • "Everything is excellent from the many appetizers to desserts. This is one of the best restaurants I. Aspen. The atmosphere is cozy and very chic."

  • "We had heard that the menu had changed to tapas at BBs. We had been in the past yrs with old menu and liked it and not being a big fan of tappas we weren't sure. We had a large group of people who like to try new new food but also have favorites. Ordering was abit of a circus but our waitstaff was patient ,easy going and attentive. The food was great as usual.Nice size portions although some dishes were such favorites of the whole table we had to order seconds.When we did they came out very quickly. I'm not sure we would have enjoyed this as much if we were just a couple.Half the fun was ordering so many dishes. We will be back next year on our annual trek to Aspen"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Everything is small plates and the 6 of us shared about 15 wonderful dishes. All excellent and a great variety. We especially loved the lamb meatballs, the roasted oysters, the flatbread with chorizo , the salmon cones, and the boudin. Oh and desserts were fabulous. Service was excellent. You can't go wrong. It can get pricey, like many fine Aspen restaurants, but bb's belongs with the top restaurants on town."

  • "Went 3x last year and LOVED it. Menu changed this season and it's horrible! 7 adults and we all ordered the same thing because it was only decent item on menu. Food was still excellent but menu needs to go back to previous. Service very nice and accommodating. Did I mention how bad the new menu is!!!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Creative tapas menu. Decent wine list. Prices high by Aspen standards--not a hot spot for dinner. Almost empty on Friday night is never a good sign. But the food was fun, well prepared, creative although portions were small even by the "small plate" standards. Why the techno music was blaring was somewhat disconcerting but the service was great. We had a bottle of wine on special three plates and a desert and somehow bill was $200. We have been there for lunch in the summer and sat outside and it was great. Hope they make some price and portions adjustments and build a clientele."

  • "Attentive service with a unique menu. We met Executive Chef Katie (who was on Food Network's Iron Chef) and she sent out surprises between courses. We tried the perogies 3 ways, roasted oysters and the lamb meatballs - all were amazing! The spare ribs were too spicy for my taste, but my husband loved them. Wait staff was very good. Nice experience. We have been at Jose Andres tapas restaurant in Las Vegas a few times - and this place has better service and food!"
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "The menu was a bit difficult to figure out. Most of the dishes are small plates meant for sharing. There is a limited amount of entrees. Entrees consist of just one item (e.g. salmon). No sides come with the entree so all sides are an extra cost. Unless you order a number of dishes, you'll probably leave a bit hungry."

  • "Imaginative menu, great presentation and everything was delicious-highly recommend!"

  • "Well worth a visit to sample creative and innovative cuisine with a small, but very interesting wine list."

  • "Enjoyed ourselves very much. Love the small plates concept. Excellent wine list. Want to come back and try the outside seating."

  • "This is a great spot in Aspen that I recently discovered. It has more of a tapas style menu sampling several different cuisines across the country and world. Try the lamb meatballs!"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Was always my favorite on Aspen. Looking forward to scallops, risotto etc. they have changed the menu. Only 5 normal entrees & lots of small plates trying to be too exotic"
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "The new small plate menu is great for sharing and generating more conversation at the dinner table!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We loved the food here. Every dish was fresh, creative and delicious. The service was good - and our server used to be a chef, so he was great about describing he dishes and their preparation."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Sat through an 8 course meal that was delicious with every plate. Staff was extremely attentive and offered to hold our food so we could watch the fireworks from their back deck. The restaurant was on the smaller side, but accommodated at least one large group, a smaller group or two, and multiple couples that night."

  • "The quality of the good is not great considering the price ... Don't take the flatbread: it's terrible!"

  • "Attractive stylish restaurant. Fun to share creative and tasty food and small plates. Nice and accommodating service."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "I think I understand what the owners/chef are trying to achieve. Problem is that the dishes are, in our opinion, poorly conceived and poorly executed. For example, they managed to ruin what might have been perfectly reasonable beef tartar with an entirely inappropriate honey mustard sauce. Huh? Another example: They managed to smoother braised short rib meat with some kind of heavy cream sauce which swamped the flavor of the beef, and then to make matters worse, overcooked the whole affair and wound up with the first dried out short ribs I've ever had."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "and the food was hit and miss. The green Papaya salad had no green Papaya that we could detect. The staff suggested that it was green Papaya "inspired". The beet salad and kale salad were nice, but the Calamari was soggy. The service was just friendly but not overly efficient."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "6-course Christmas Dinner was outstanding! Deconstructed beef wellington the BEST I have ever had! Creative Executive Chef is clearly a rising star!"

  • "What's not to like about Element 47? In my opinion, this is the BEST restaurant in Aspen. Brilliant chef, wine team is smart and personable, serving staff are exceptionally attentive. I love the new decor, modern and classy. Not to be missed if you want an excellent dinner in Aspen."
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Excellent experience all around. The chef is amazingly talented and creative. The salmon with forbidden rice is like a piece of heaven. Our waiter, Ray, spent the time to go over nuances on the menu that we would have never known about otherwise. So, even with the "hot spot" action around us, we felt as if we were the only ones being served. Excellent!"

  • "Wife and I had a lovely dining experience on the outdoor terrace with a string quartet playing memorable songs in the courtyard below. Enjoyed the eve very much, including the summer rain storm that was well-diverted by their colorful and strong awnings and umbrellas. The roast chicken was absolutely the best I have had in 50+ years of dining out. Kudos to the chef and staff!"
    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "This is by far my favorite restaurant in Aspen, and as a chef that's saying a lot. The food is all well-seasoned and creative. These guys clearly know what they are doing. Brunch is the most popular, but the real excitement comes at dinner. Perfectly cooked proteins and balanced sides make for an exquisite culinary delight."

  • "We dined a BB's on our summer trip to Aspen. It was our favorite restaurant. Service was attentive and the menu was creative, fresh and delicous. This will be our first stop back when we return."
    Dined on 7/10/2013
  • "The place is excellent, although one can sense an arrogance about not accepting requests for accommodations on the menu. The new onset of classical music being played outside dramatically enhances the atmosphere. Incidentally, the sweet potato fries during Happy Hour are fantastic!!!"
