The Wild Fig
Great food, good value for AspenWent with my wife and 12 year old twins. We were the first group in the restaurant but it quickly filled up. The food was excellent and the service attentive but not over the top. We had a very nice meal and we thought that it was good value for Aspen3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. We had theExcellent food. We had the tagliatelle, the risotto, lamb shank and the whole fish. Started with the big charcuterie board. All of the food was very well prepared and presented. My one issue is that, for a resort location, this was not particularly kid friendly. Not only were there no kid options on the menu but the atmosphere/attitude seemed to be one of just tolerating rather than welcome children. This is unusual for the Aspen/Snowmass area, which sees a lot of families on vacation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur only negative: went atOur only negative: went at 6:15. Was not busy. There were 2 of us & they stuck us in a tiny table by a door. Would not stay next time in such a cramped table when they were not at all full at that hour.
Food was delicious & the manager steered us to a good bottle of wine that was not expensive.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was excellent.Our experience was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food was excellent. I had the special branzino. with lobster risotto and red pepper sauce. Fabulous and perfect portion size. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the service was excellent and everyone was so friendly. Very typical of our experience in aspen with one glaring exception which unfortunately was with their sister restaurant 316. They didn't have our reservation in their computer which I made over a month ago even though they did have my information in their system from my visit to aspen 5 yrs ago. Mistakes happen but the maitre de or manager was totally rude loud and unbelievably uncooperative. She definitely needs a course in customer service.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
