Please don't ring the kids
Only one problem-we expected a romantic dinner and were seated next to a family with two very small and very annoying
Children. This despite many other empty tables .
Otherwise, food service and decor were superlative.

Wonderful restaurant with
Wonderful restaurant with great food and exceptional service. We loved Katie and all of the staff. Everyone was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is elegant without being pretentious. Loved the large chairs and pillows. The peanut butter pretzel cake was awesome. I had read a review about being seated next to noisy families, but the restaurant is very spacious and has great acoustics. Much better than so many noisy places that require you to shout to your table mate.

Food was Excellent!
Make sure you try the shrimp and grits. The chef is from New Orleans and he brings that style to the food. Our meal was so good I wish I could go every weekend. Try it out if you are in town. :)

Best food in Aspen Area
This place is a little slice of heaven!
We have been going to aspen for years and all of the
Restaurants have been good but we haven't found
One that has been great- well that has FINALLY changed!
8K really is phenomenal, Will Nolan lives up to his name and
Everything on the menu was great and we tried it all! The wine list was also top notch and not overpriced like most in aspen.
He went out of his way to make our evening perfect for my husbands
Birthday. Thanks to the staff and everyone there! We will be back!

Amazing Dining Experience
The food was creative and fantastic; the server (Katie?) was personable, helpful and attentive; and the atmosphere is romantic and vibrant. We will head back every time we are in the Snowmass/Aspen area!

Wish we'd gone earlier in the week.
We spent a week in Snowmass and canceled a reservation on Sunday. I made another reservation for our last night. If we had gone earlier, we would have had more meals there. The restaurant and view were stunning. Our server (Kate) was professional, helpful, and fun. We had a specialty barrel-aged Manhattan that was a fabulous cocktail. We shared appetizers - they were enough for three of us to each have a taste, which was plenty considering the generous entree sizes. The deviled egg and "PB&J" surprise were both outstanding. At dinner we had elk, the stuffed bacon cheeseburger, and halibut. They were flexible with sides. The best thing was the desserts - ice cream bar with salted caramel and cheesecake. Too few characters to describe. Yum!

Fine Snowmass Dining
We had previously been a bit "ho-hum" about the menu at this fine-looking restaurant since it opened. But the new menu makes it a true shining start in the roaring fork valley. All four of us loved our courses. I started with an oyster shooter (I could have had a half dozen) and a deviled egg. Outstanding. My entree was a special- smoked pork ribeye (yes, ribeye, on the bone) with a terrific BBQ sauce, all on top of sweet potato purée.
We' ve been to a lot of restaurants from Carbondale to Aspen, and highly recommend this one.

Our favorite restaurant in Snowmass
We go to 8K every time we come to town. They are always so accommodating for my hard to please family of 5. It's a little pricey but worth every penny. Order the spicy edamame. It's not on the menu anymore but they'll still make it!

Fine dining with a phenomenal view
We love Eight K, it has all the elegance and quality you expect from an Aspen restaurant and the comfort and comfortable attitude you expect at Snowmass plus that view. That view is the flip side of the Snowmass ski area which is equally spectacular in summer as winter, with gorgeous peaks and glorious greens. Hard to imagine anything more beautiful or better background to a meal. The menu is great with a lot of variety, a great selection of local ingredients, well prepared and elegantly served. The “cochon de lait” andouille-stuffed smoked pork loin and pan-roasted alaskan halibut were superb, the jambalaya-stuffed mississippi quail a treat, as was everything we tasted. The wine list was odd, but there were bottles worth finding.

My only complaint is that
My only complaint is that even after I specifically asked the waitress to space our dinner and appetizers, we were still given no more than 4-5 minutes between courses.
