    I am a local concierge and we had an excellent celebration night at Steakhouse No. 316. We shared the tomahawk rib eye. It was well seasoned and had a nice char on the outside. They broil their meats in a Peter Luger broiler at 1600 degrees. If you have been to Peter Lugers in NYC...you know what I mean. The sides were excellent (garlic spinach and loaded twice baked). We finished with bread pudding. My boyfriend is not wild about bread pudding and boy did this bread pudding change his mind. If bread pudding could change your life, this would. I was speechless when I tried it. Great drinks (they mix a good dirty martini), great service, love the open beams in the front of the house. We will be back. I will send our guests there.

    Excellent food and service. There were three of us... I had the Kobe Flat Iron steak and it was was wonderful! My husband had the Prime NY Strip and my son had the Prime Cowboy Ribeye... almost as delicious as mine. The salads and side were very good too. It is a little noisy, but did not interfere with our conversation. Only complaint was the tables are slightly crowded... more like a European restaurant... but not really a big issue. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely return again. This is a pricey restaurant... but you are in Aspen after all!

    Enjoyed the atmosphere for our Anniversary. Food was good. Flat iron steak excellent and prepared as asked. Service was questionable for such a high dollar place. Had to get up and find someone to take our drink order 10-15 mins after being seated. Then they switched waiters, then food served with yet another person. Tables a bit too close to each other. Other than that, good experience.

    My reservation was for 8pm and I was walking home by 9:15. When presented with my cocktail the server immediately wanted to take our dinner order, not allowing anytime to sit and enjoy my martini and converse with friends. Once we ordered, the steaks and sides were literally on our table in less than 12 minutes. The desserts were good.

    The service was great, helpful with suggestions and parings. The oysters were amazing! The steak was prepared perfectly and there was not an ounce of food left when we were finished. The sauteed mushrooms complimented the sirloin perfectly. My boyfriend has been raving that he will always remember the "best steak of his life at Steakhouse 316!" Will certainly come back next time we are in Aspen.

    Steak House No 316 is a small, cozy place but that doesn't mean it doesn't make you feel like you're in a major city steakhouse. The decor, the ambience, the service and the quality of the menu are all very good. The only thing I was not very comfortable with, is that a huge steak was oddly prepared too fast. The inside was nicely cooked but the outside was NOT. That makes me wonder how they cook the steaks. The bread pudding was awesome! maybe too big, but still worth the try. The terrace is small and a bit uncomfortable, and the view is not worth it, better try the inside.

    Our meal was good on all levels, but when I'm spending $45 on a steak that doesn't even include a side, I don't want good, I want my mind to be blown. Our drinks were excellent. The mussels and frites were tasty and the wedge salad we had were both enjoyable and our server was kind enough to split the salad for us. This was the one and only time our server went through an exceptional service motion unprompted. Service was never once bad and we were absolutely taken care of, but there was no warmth or conversation from our server. We are foodies that like to geek out on what a restaurant has to offer and appreciate a touch of thought from our server... especially when we tea it up for him. Just expected more.

    Love this place and am a regular when in town. My only beef (ha!!) would be with the wine list which is pretty stupidly expensive. You shouldn't HAVE to spend $150 to get a bottle of Cab you recognise but the wine list gives you very few decent options below this price point.

    Cocktails were very good. Wine by the glass somewhat limited but some acceptable options. Wine list good. Steak and sides were outstanding. My wife and I rarely eat beef any more but when we do we appreciate high quality and correct preparation. These guys hit the mark across the board. The sides were also great--standards with a twist. One of the most enjoyable evenings out we have had in a long time. The decor however was very nice but a little too dark--we had difficult reading the menus and that whole bordello motif is a bit much. This place used to be a family friendly Mexican restaurant years ago. Despite the lighting issue if you like a good steak this place is highly recommended and a real step up from the other Aspen steak houses.

    Really great meal. Good wine list, helpful sommelier. Two of the best steaks we've had -- bone in filet and new york strip. Sides were good, but not fantastic -- twice baked potato and beets with blue cheese -- would give 4.5 stars for food. Dessert was a huge bread pudding. Probably unnecessarily huge, even if it were 1/2 the size I would still have called it huge, and too much to eat.

    We were a party of 4, and all the food that we ordered was outstanding. Our problem was completely with the service, or the lack of it. We were seated for quite a while before our waiter came by the first time. It was then another 10-15 minutes before he returned to take our order and we had to flag someone down to get him. We had ordered two salads to be be split (so that each got a half salad). The waitstaff brought out 3 and then walked away to fill another tables water, and generally mill around. The fourth salad came out several minutes later while we all just sat and waited. No explanation given as to the delay. when the waiter did come by (which was not often), very little eye contact, as if avoiding us.

    We recently spent four nights in Aspen and went to dinner at well reviewed restaurants each night. This was by far the best restaurant experience of the trip. The bar, bartender, and wait staff were friendly, prompt, professional, and personable. The food was absolutely wonderful. Three of us ordered steaks and they were all cooked perfectly. The various butters offered was a nice touch. I had the blue cheese/bone marrow butter. This was mind blowing melted on my prime rib eye. My wife had the risotto and raved about it. Being from New Orleans we couldn't resist ordering the bread pudding. It was the best I've had outside of New Orleans and better than anything I've had outside of Commander's Palace. If you go to Aspen, eat here!

    This might be one of the best steaks I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection. The appetizers were good - nothing too special. The sides along with the steaks were also good. A couple people got fish in our group of eight, and they definitely regretted not getting a steak after trying ours. Definitely recommend! The wine list was rather extensive, so we asked the sommelier for some assistance. She did a great job recommending a couple bottles for our group.

    We recently returned from a trip to NYC. We dined at two iconic New York City restaurants: Jean Georges and Keen's Chophouse. I had steak at both restaurants and neither compared to the New York Strip I had at Steak House 316! This is no exaggeration! Not only was the food better, but the service and ambience were superior as well. We really are spoiled here in Aspen! While expensive, our dinner at S.H.316 was a bargain compared to the restaurants we visited in NYC. Enjoyed the new artwork. Love this restaurant! I've heard Steak House 316 described as a "New York City Steakhouse in the Mountains". I don't agree with that depiction; 316 is an awsome Mountain Steak House in Aspen, Colorado.

    Steaks are supposed to be their specialty and honestly I was a bit disappointed. The risotto was incredible so high marks there but the buffalo ribeye, while flavorful was just too thin for a ribeye. My wife's filet was average at best. The wine list was fantastic and we tried an Italian wine that for the price was certainly a disappointment. The Sommelier attempted to be helpful and for that I appreciated the thoughts, but the wine she chose did not hold up well to the ribeye or the filet. Simply too soft. We enjoyed the service, we enjoyed the risotto , the rest was simply average. MIR

    I'd made reservations for 6:00. We arrived at 5:30 and apologized for being early. Apparently my attire wasn't quite up to snuff; my wife saw the hostess/sommelier roll her eyes. I thought my jeans, button-down short sleeved shirt and boots were, if not Aspen-stylish, at least adequate. Evidently not. Despite the arrogance, we had a great meal. The crab cakes were as good as any we've had. The 8-ounce filet with the cognac peppercorn demi and the 6-ounce lobster tail with the roasted wild mushrooms were both outstanding. Good wine list, too. The Ridge Zinfandel I chose was a terrific match for the peppery filet. With the exception of the greeting, the service was faultless. There's only one thing this place needs: a new sommelier.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Located right in the heart of Aspen, Steak House No. 316 has delicious food and unique mixed drinks. The various cuts of meat are all cocked and served in skillets which gives them a crispy outer coating and a juicy center. I had a lamb chop special. The lamb was very tasty with none of the after taste that lamb sometimes possesses. My husband and daughter both had different cuts of steak which were tender and rich tasting. The side dishes were large enough to share. The bread was warm and homemade--whole grain and white. We were way too full for dessert although the ones we saw looked delicious. We ate outside which was very pleasant. Expect to spend a lot of money but it is worth every cent and after all you are in Aspen.

    Since this is "rated" as one of the best restaurants in Aspen, we decided to visit it. Horrible from the start. The Air Conditioner must have been set at 80 degrees. The Waiter never let us know what the evenings specials were. I would have rather had the Bison Rib eye that he explained to next table, than the totally over cooked $54 beef rib eye. It had to have been better. The grilled Artichoke and Tuna tartar were good, but, not for the price. The Spinach side was the best item we had that evening. The wait staff and servers were not very friendly at all. Next visit to Aspen, I will spend my $480 for a party of 4 somewhere else

    We were in Aspen for our 40th wedding anniversary. I saw this restaurant on OpenTable and decided to give it a try for this special occasion. What a good choice it turned out to be. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent and the prices were unbelievably low for what we expect in a top Aspen restaurant. I highly recommend Steakhouse 316 to anybody looking for a great place in Aspen. Like everywhere in Aspen, parking is a problem. If you are staying downtown, walk.
