Excellent food and prompt, courteous service. Beautiful dining area with mountain views, including a gorgeous sunset. We will definitely return and recommend the experience to others.

Gone downhill from a couple of years ago when it was great. Food mediocre, not creative, over-sauced, often over-salted.

Excellent food, very nice waiter, fair prices for such a very nice restaurant. Beautiful view. Not noisy at all. Would definitely be excited to go there again!

One of the only quiet rooms left in Aspen plus great outdoor dining on the terrace. Started with a tasty duck prosciutto salad and had scallops for the main course. Both attractive and tasty. The chocolate cake for dessert a a bit disappointing but overall we were pleased with the meal and service.

Excellent service. Very personal but still discrete. Cocktails and wine were fabulous. Dinner was delicious, topped all the restaurants we went to that week. Appreciated the complimentary shuttle back to downtown.

Plato's is in our view one of the very best restaurants in Aspen. Located in the Aspen Meadows Resort adjacent to the Aspen Institute, about 10 minutes from the Gondola (and I think that you can pick up their shuttle at Belly Up and the Jerome Hotel and one more location in town), everyone there is incredibly friendly, with none of the stuffiness that you get at the "hot" "high end" eateries in town. We usually eat there a few times while we're in Aspen, and we have never had a bad meal, or a bad experience. Last night, after attending a violin concert by Simone Porter at the Aspen Institute's beautiful Harris Concert Hall, the hotel picked us up at the front door for the short drive to the resort, where our table had been held waiting even though we were a little late (due to well-deserved encores). We shared a raviolo appetizer from their winter menu - fantastic; and Cindy had the venison [perfect] and I had the sea trout [excellent].

Very quiet with an excellent view of the stars and crescent moon.

Food was delicious but two of us who had the short rib were surprised that it was not served hot enough.

Platos is usually a very good restaurant... but on this occasion the food presentation and quality was below par

We drove thru a snowstorm, it was well worth it. The food was creative, beautifully displayed and delicious. We would do it again

Food is very good, although the portion size does not give much value for the price. Service is good, though not "fine dining" quality. Overall a good place to go for good food, it's nice to break away from the downtown and enjoy the view this restaurant has.

Simply, the best restaurant in Aspen. The quality and inventiveness of the dishes on the menu is astonishing.

A little bummer that we we're not able to try their dessert but overall it was really delicious. They have great customer service as well. Definitely will come back in the future if ever we're in town. We loved the experience going to Plato's.

Open Table's categories do not include "great food" as a reason for recommending. But it is in fact great food, beautiful view, and friendly ambience.
