The food was exceptional.
The food was exceptional. The pace was great. The waiter could have been a little more friendly. However, it may well be he was overly busy due to the March break crowd. Overall it was a great experience and I would come back.

Saw the owner/chef leaving as we sat down and. The food was really off ......steak and pork loin sauce indistinguishable. Service was great/. I will come back but think the shop needs to think about team/ consistency

My favorite Aspen restaurant
We've been coming to Pinons for years. Freddy's Salad, Herb – encrusted Trout, and Chocolate Bread Pudding are my favorite meal. Don't leave Aspen without a visit to Pinons.

Great food, slow kitchen
Always wonderful food and a great atmosphere. I've been many times and I'm always impressed. This last visit, however, the kitchen took over an hour to bring our meals. The waitress kept apologizing saying our meals were about to come up but they did not materialize. The only explanation was that they were very busy and everyone showed up at once. At the prices charged, the management should make sure that the kitchen can appropriately handle the food orders.

Top notch food in one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Aspen that still feels like you're in the American west.

Great, as usual...
A favorite place in Aspen... I loved my salad with the beets and goat cheese, and the halibut was wonderful. I do have to say my husband's steak was good but not great. Everything else created a great dining experience looking out onto Ajax mountain!

An excellent restaurant. Even
An excellent restaurant. Even though they were busy, the food and service was still outstanding. Members of our group ordered either the Sea Bass and the Halibut. Both were cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The Freddy salad is the best salad anywhere provided you enjoy bacon. To get things started, we shared an order of Crispy Oysters which were very good and we will order again.

Been going there for twenty years and it never disappoints- as good as always- the specials are always worth trying-

Wonderful dinner and even better service. On a nice night, nothing beats dining on the patio. A really interesting wine list only adds to the experience.

A Lovely Experience
We certainly enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. The view was spectacular from our outdoor vantage point. We arrived at 6:30pm and would have preferred to have eaten later, but were told that there was no other availability that evening. We were amused that many tables remained open throughout the evening, so we could have eaten later. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our meals. I ordered the Dover Sole and the asparagus soup and my friend ordered the beet salad and lamb chops. We ordered a bottle of wine to accompany the meal and felt that the sommelier was less than enthused over our selection (was only $66). We finished the evening with a fabulous dessert (toffee, chocolate) and shared a chocolate martini. We will return someday.

This is a "$$$$" restaurant
This is a "$$$$" restaurant in every sense - expensive but with the service and quality you expect for the considerable cost.

Pinon's delivers on every level.........food, service and atmosphere! My wife and I had an amazing dinner and can not wait to get back. This is one of my favorite restaurants hands down!

Expertly prepared meal
We had dinner here the one night we stayed in Aspen and were delighted with both the meal and the service. Likely the best mushroom soup I've ever had. The onion rings were also worth every extra calorie.

Expensive, but delicious!
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding (well timed and helpful with suggestions). I would definitely return to this restaurant when I come to Aspen. The menu prices were higher than I had expected (maybe that is Aspen pricing). The portion were big and easily sharable. The special "soup of the day" was a mixed cream of mushroom and it was excellent; not much cream just a lot of mushrooms.

Haven't been to Pinion's in some time(not by choice) and was glad to see they still had some of their classics on the menu(ex: Crispy Oysters). Enjoyed a great bottle of wine and appreciated the recommendation from the sommelier. Our food was excellent, as was the service. The entire experience was enjoyable. Pinion's can be expensive, but it's worth it. Have been a fan for 20 years now and they're still one of the best, if not the best, restaurants in Aspen.

A Great Restaurant
We dined on the patio which is quite nice with views of Aspen mountain. We were hosting guests from the east coast so we wanted a special dinner. Pinion's delivered and everyone enjoyed the food and service which was outstanding in every respect. One of the finest restaurants anywhere.

Cause for celebration
Our family of 7 had dinner at Pinon to celebrate our 30th anniversary and my daughter's birthday. The food was fantastic, especially the pasta bolognaise and the sole. You must try the onion rings- they melt in your mouth! At the end of the meal, 2 beautifully presented desserts arrived, one for each occasion. We were delighted iwth the whole experience. Thank you, Pinon!

Enjoyed evening wiith. friends
The food was above average. The service was efficient and accomodating, but a bit stiff and not friendly. The exception was the wine steward who recommended an excellent Pinot Noir. The vegetarian in our group found the menu options limited. But the waitperson did make a couple of suggestions not on the meu. The bill was roughly $100 per person. But all in our group enjoyed their meal and the evening.

Lovely wine, great food. It was a slow night but there was a good vibe.

A very memorable and enjoyable meal. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Aspen.

Busy but good.
We didn't expect Pinion's to be so busy, at the end of season, but the place was absolutely packed. Surprisingly, the service didn't suffer too much and our food came out on time and at the right temperature. We were definitely impressed with how the staff managed to service so many diners, at the same time, without missing a beat. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our wine and cocktails.

The prototypical Aspen experience
Pricey, and worth it. Delicate, subtle flavor blends in the food and service beyond compare.
