    One of the few reliable places to get a tasty meal in Snowmass Village--menu doesn't seem to change too much; some dishes are more reliable (duck) than others (elk). Were out of anchovies but didn't inform us until we asked about the missing anchovies on our Caesar salads. Otherwise attentive service, but not overly so. Great selection on their kids' menu, with real meals (grilled fish or chicken with broccoli and mashed potatoes) rather than just standard kid fare like pizza and chicken fingers.

    Enjoyable and tasty. I have seen reviews about poor front of house and wait-staff and noisy environment but at least when we were there (with a booking, obviously) service was prompt, courteous and friendly. Restaurant was noisy, but not excessive. A good option. Not particularly cheap, but certainly not excessive.

    3stoogessVIP
    Dined on 2/23/2011
    Nice presentations, escargot appetizer was a hit, sans shell, served on butter drenched bread with sprinkled goat? cheese. At our group, one ordered chicken (very good); another ahi salad (very good); children split fish (good portion very good); other had fish (very good); These were comments made by individuals ordering dishes. Only weak review was my own. I ordered the duck (which I regarded as fair, crispy fried leg and thigh hindquarter. Though generous portions, ended up tasting dry, and the smothering of heavy sweet-ish sauce did not help to disguise poorly conceived dish. Disclaimer: I love duck and often order it if it is on menu at fine resaurants. Very popular restaurant in Snowmass, service was attentive.

    This restaurant was recommended to us, and we dined here the first night in Snowmass. The service and atmosphere were great, but the food was horrible! We are now on our last day in Aspen, and are disappointed that we wasted a dinner here, as we've enjoyed so many other great meals in our week in Aspen/Snowmass.

    THe duck was greatly overcooked on top of blue cheese mashed potatoes. The blue cheese was very overpowering to where I couldn't eat any of the mashed potatoes. Others in our party had trout which they liked. THe asparagus soup was bland. Just an average restaurant at best.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 1/29/2011
    Artisan is situated at the Stonebridge Inn, a short walk from Snowmass Village Mall. The decor and atmosphere are attractive, with an upbeat apres ski atmosphere, and the service was pleasant and attentive. However, we found the menu options to be rather rich and over elaborate. We choose the Ono special, which was OK - plenty of garlic - but nothing to jump up and down about. With two fish plates, a shared appetizer and a medium-priced bottle of white wine, our bill came to more than $160. This just seemed a lot to shell out for what was really an average meal. In our opinion, better food - and much better value - can be found at Garnish, at Timberline up the hill.

    Our entrees were very good. The desserts are also very good, and they're tiny -- just the right size for a small treat. However, they're a bit challenging to eat out of the shot glasses they come in. It might be better to find a different way to serve them. Overall, this is a very nice place for dinner in Snowmass.

    We woke up at the Stonebridge Inn hopeful there would be a halfway decent place to eat somewhere nearby. Thank goodness we didn't have to go far. The Artisan surpassed our expectations at every turn. Let's start with the shuttle driver, Ray, who told us his son, Cody, works breakfast. I wasn't surprised to find that Cody was just as friendly and accomodating as his father. He took care of us many mornings, and we spoke about the nearby mountains and how to get around easily without spending a wad. The breakfast buffet was filling and tasty, a perfect way to start off a snow day! Dinner got even better, with items like local caught trout and superb steak, we never had to leave the building, except to hit the slopes of course!

    after ordering multiple courses and bottles if wine, as we waited for our check, we were told that we'd overstayed our welcome. apparently we'd also been pointed out to a waiting party, who glared at my friend as she left, reminding the hostess that we'd had no indication we were to hurry an that in fact, we were waiting for the check when scolded. we're grown-ups--let us know if there's a problem. as always, the pace of service determines when we leave, and did in this case. i was embarrassed in front of out-of-town visitors, and canceled remaining reservations at this restaurant.

    This is a wonderful find. Ther servers are attentive without being intrusive. Everyone is welcoming and knowledgable. The breakfast buffet is a great value at $14.95 (kids are ridiculously cheap) complete with an omelet and waffle station. Dinner was delightful from beginning to end. Amanda was a fabulous server. I highly recommend the Caesar (FOR GARLIC LOVERS!) and the Elk, Duck, Ribeye, Venison Meatloaf...all to die for. The small bites on the appetizer menu are amazing. The duck pate was worth savoring, and the tuna tartare was exceptionally flavorful. It's wonderful to see a chef utilizing local ingredients at the peak of freshness, and a service staff that respects his vision. I can't wait to come back.

    We had a wonderful experience at The Artisan. We ordered several apps to share and were thrilled with the variety of options to satisfy everyone's tastes. The escargot was particularly divine, as were the smoked salmon galette, carpaccio and toast with toppings. We were seated in an alcove near the fireplace, which was cozy and intimate. Our group also enjoyed several entrees. The duck, shrimp risotto and trout were all full of flavor and devoured with smiles on our faces. Thank you for a memorable dining experience. We will be back!

My girlfriend had the duck, in drunken cherry jus, with maytag bleu cheese mashed potatoes...soooo good, we sat on the patio and had a great view, it got a bit chilly out and the manager Todd was super accommodating and found us an indoor table right away, last but not least is the hand selected wine list...there was a wine to pair with eveything on the menu!! Truly an outstanding experience.

    Terrible! Went to the Artisan for a nice summer bday dinner. Ended up getting sat next to one of the worst families in the Aspen area. The service wasn't great, but this family made it a point to make fun of the waitstaff like a group of middle schoolers. It was sad and completely ruined the dining experience. That aside, when we asked the manager if we could be moved, we were denied. That also aside, the food was subpar at best for the price. Much like many resort restaurants, so many factors have to be right to make it a great dining experience and this was no different.

In the summer the outdoor dining and views are great, during the winter it is a cozy dining experience indoors. The food and service has been consisently excellent every time. This is one of our favorite places to dine in Snowmass and perhaps Aspen. The food is creative and well prepared, the prices are reasonable, and we always remark after each meal that we will have to make a point to comeback again next season. Keep up the great work!

    As a Snowmass local I have eaten at most every restaurant option in Snowmass Village and Aspen. And for my money the Artisan is one of the best around. The bar atmosphere is fun and relaxed, a locals favorite; and the dining room is perfect for nice dinners and special occasions. Bar sandwiches are affordable and delicious. My favorite is the Cuban. Entree highlights include the deservedly ballyhooed Trout, the ridiculously filling duck, and the new meatloaf item. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the braised short ribs, either in app or entree size. So good! Definitely worth checking out if you are in Snowmass Village for any ammount of time.
