A word from Prospect
Hotel Jerome's longstanding tradition of culinary excellence is showcased in a variety of restaurant options, each reflecting innovative, locally inspired menus that incorporate the freshest organic, natural and seasonal ingredients —a time-honored trademark of Auberge Resort restaurants.

At the helm is Executive Chef, Rob Zack, who began his career at Aspen's Hotel Jerome nearly 20 years ago. He is vital in recreating new menus, inspired cuisine and unique restaurant experiences throughout the hotel as part of the renovation project.

With that said we are proud to introduce the latest addition to Aspen's renowned restaurant scene – Prospect, the fine dining culinary epicenter of the hotel. The Living Roomis also a new, relaxing and comfortable spot for small plates and cocktails. And the infamous JBar is still a cornerstone of Aspen's social fabric.

    We had dinner in this beautiful restaurant with our daughter and grand-daughter. We don't usually take young children to this type of restaurant, but the staff was completely accommodating with crayons, kid cups and flexibility in bringing her food. They made it easy for her, so everyone could enjoy our meal. The food was outstanding, the staff was terrific and atmosphere to write home about.

    The food at Prospect is outstanding. Good ingredients, thoughtfully and creatively prepared (but not over the top). Indoors is very quiet if you want a place where you can hear one another talk, and outside is quite pretty. Excellent wine list.

    Prospect is not to be missed. The service and the food were excellent. Unfortunately, in Aspen, there is rarely good service. We are from New Orleans, so we know what fine dining service should be and this was the only restaurant that provided that level of service. The menu was diverse with fresh and healthy options. Be sure to order the Green Pea Hummus - I even asked for the recipe! The waiter was able to recommend pairing wines for each course and his choices were perfect. Wish I could go again tonight.

    Sitting outside on a summer evening in Aspen is special, there are so few that are warm enough. Luckily we had one and it was sublime. The outdoor dining at the Prospect (Hotel Jerome) is well appointed and elegant. It's just off Main St in Aspen, which is the busiest street in this little town, but far enough in their garden to be romantic and apart from the street noise. The gardens are green and lush. The food is very good and well presented. Not large portions, but adequate, order an appetizer or a salad or you may leave hungry. The prices are moderate and fair for Aspen. The menu is wide and should appeal to everyone, vegetarians alike. Everything was excellent and delicious, good service too. To me 5 stars means perfect and rare.

    Arrived and was seated. A waiter eventually arrived. He seemed distracted and irratated. He reluctantly asked us if we wanted a drink. I inquired about a specific tequila. Again he seemed annoyed and just stared at us. He offered no help. He left with a scowl on his face. He eventually returned with a drink list and just threw it down on the table and abruptly left. My girlfriend and I looked at each other in disbelief !! That was it, we got up and left. We will never return !!!

    5 for dinner on a Sunday after a concert. Patio was lovely and almost empty...strange. Delicious cornbread gratis, spinach/ artichoke dip tasty. Lobster salad perfect...trout was too pink, too large- was it farm raised? And too fried..not an ideal preparation. Carrot " cupcake" and chocolate mousse cake to share were very tasty. Lovely wine list, friendly knowledgable staff.

    the outdoor setting and looking up at the mountain was beautiful but having to repour your own wine (repeatedly) while the waiter is sitting there talking to you is a bit ridiculous. the timing of the service was poor. One of the waitresses didn't understand a special request I made for my soup. It had to be sent back. I believe the party at the table next to us actually left without even paying their bill as their experience with the service was so abysmal. I would still recommend dining there for the ambiance and historical nature of the location:as the food itself was very good.

    We went to Prospect last Saturday night at 6pm and the food was great but the service was absolutely terrible. We were told that the kitchen was going to get slammed in a bit, so we should get out appetizer and salads together, then the entree and do it as a 2 course dinner -- because Tony Bennett was performing at 8:30 pm -- we were not going to the show. We agreed to this but during our first course out entree showed up in the middle and proceeded to get cold while we finished our salads. We informed a staff person (manager?) when he finally came over to fill my empty water glass (empty for quite some time) and he said it was because of Tony Bennett performing. No taking it back and keeping it warm. The waiter also misdescribed the Syrah.

    As a vegetarian, I greatly appreciate when a chef puts forth the effort to make a creative dish that I can eat (rather than just offering me pasta). The vegetarian options (which change throughout the year) are always creative and delicious. They have a great wine list with a super helpful som! They even have gluten free options on the dessert menu!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 1/2/2014
    We dined here on Jan 2nd. Ridiculously poor service. Nice staff, just not professional. Maybe the "D-Team" was in due to the holiday week?? This is primetime for Aspen. Odd. The staff seemed chronically confused. Waiters wandered the room aimlessly with food, with no idea for whom it was intended. This happened so many times, it became a joke. Our cream of squash soup was lukewarm, which we were told was "intentional" and the way the chef likes it. We were told if we wanted warmer soup, they would make an exception and warm it up for us. Thanks. Entrees were ok. Everything else was so poor that we won't be back. Too many superb options in Aspen, it will take more than free valet parking on a cold night to save this mess of a place.

    The dining room of the Jerome hotel had great expectations and I knew it could accommodate My extended family. A big plus But they're offerings fell short of being great food I had the corn bread pancakes w/ bacon flavored jam First the pancakes were way too heavy and the bacon aired jam hard to take The sign up for reservation was convenient and wonderful But no one read the fact I brought three vegetarians I. My group. One of my vegetarians was served a meat meal and they had to take it back If they read my reservation and took it to heart they wouldn't have to give credit On the wrong meal served which is fix after the fact.

    Wow,Auberge Resorts has made an impact. The new design of the room is beautiful. The menu offers many wonderful choices, not to mention a terrific bread basket. The pork chop was the best we have had in a month of dining in Aspen. The ribeye @ $49.00 was too small but good. The burrata with roasted beets, needed more roasted beets. For dessert, the 7 layer chocolate and salted caramel cake was delicious. The service staff is a work in progress. we had a waitress who took notes on orders and got them wrong, then, could not be found when we had another request, so we flagged down another server to place our dessert order- who told us he would pass our order along, as it was not his job! We are sure Auberge will up the training .

    We went with friends, hoping to dine on the patio - which is beautiful!! But, alas, it was raining so we had to sit inside. Turned out to be a totally delightful experience! The ambiance was perfect, beautiful decor, lovely lighting, comfy seating and very friendly and helpful service. The wine sommelier was fanantastic! She helped us pick out a wine, and luckily for me she said if we don't like it we will try again - because I didn't like it. So, we tried again and the 2nd time was a charm!! The food was delicious, amazing and interesting. My husband and I both had the salmon - perfection!! My friend had the rib-eye. I don't eat meat, but had a bite and asked for another bite - so delicious! Finally, COCONUT CREAM PIE!!! WHOA!

    While the re-modeled and much improved inside dining room in the Hotel Jerome is very elegant, we chose to eat outside at one of their round umbrella tables since it was a lovely evening. Waiter was pleasant, but neglected to tell us about two changes to the accompaniments for one entree (menu said fries) and one dessert (menu said pineapple on the side, not the carmelized bananas that came with it). We began with the mini mason jar of bacon pimento cheese with flatbread which was very good. My spouse had the beef which was excellent and i had the local trout, also nicely prepared. Prices are high (many in Aspen are), but I would return for a special occasion.
