About

It’s been called Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind.” The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason our hotel has enjoyed the rare 5-Star, 5-Diamond ranking for so long. In 2015, element 47 received its first 5-Star Restaurant Award. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you’ll be greeted with warmth, not formality. There is no dress code -- "Aspen casual" is ideal attire. We are pleased to accommodate diners with any food allergies, intolerances and dietary restrictions. You’ll find the ambience – ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, José Lerma – as fine as the dining.

Salmon was not cooked through. Fries were frozen in middle. Steak was under cooked. Service was good but food didn't even come close to the atmosphere. Wonder if the fact it was closing up for the season the next day influenced the quality. Either way, will not return.

Glad we were able to find a last minute reservation. Don't count on it happening again, but it's spring. Everything was really great. The wine list is pretty steep. Service and food were top notch.

Formal dining, extensive wine list, Somm helped pick a magnum of Burgundy (which the Burgundy wines were on 25% discount) and the back room for a party of 8 was perfect! Not cheap, but not outrageously expensive. A special occasion for sure. Pasta w sweetbreads was great, hanger steak was even better

We were so disappointed. We have eaten here many times and so this was an exception. The service was fabulous as always, but we ordered the special five course tasting menu and two of the five courses were totally inedible because they were so salty -- and we usually love salt. Something must have gone terribly wrong in the kitchen. It was an expensive mistake too at $95 per person. The first two courses - spring salad and the "razor clams" were very good (although the clam dish was really a pasta dish with chopped clams on the top). Dessert very disappointing with some sort of raspberry gelatin ribbons and tasteless supposedly chocolate logs that looked like vienna sausages, but the main problem was the way too salty sweetbreads and tenderloin beef (they ran out of the pork that was supposed to be the fourth course). I hope this was just a one time problem on March 21st. We will go back and order off the menu next time!

Was very unimpressed with this signature restaurant at Little Nell in Aspen.
More casual than I would have expected for Aspen casual; VERY Overpriced wines: French Bordeaux 25% off and still over 250/bottle ! Poor US Napa selections . Food unimpressive : they need a new chef; obviously a tourist trap

Everything is always amazing, but the pasta on the Indulgence Menu might be the best pasta dish I've ever had.

Best restaurant in Aspen. Get the Tasting Menu. You will not be disappointed. But please be aware: A glass of wine averages $30!

Very good meal although entree menu quite limited. Pricey. A bit stuffy. Not an Aspen authentic experience. Very modern contemporary decor. Incredible wine list.

Wonderful evening at Element 47, with the chef's indulgence menu. My wife and I both thought the food was just outstanding as well as the service of our hosts.

We will be back!

Our wait staff was knowledgeable, professional and fun. A hand written b-day card was left on the table for my husbands birthday which was awesome. Elegant with an edgy feel.

Excellent restaurant, with impeccable service. We went with friends and celebrated two birthdays, mine and one of the friends. Element 47 was a perfect place to celebrate and put candles on our dessert. The evening was memorably enjoyable.
