                                                        I went to Betula for my birthday and it was amazing. The service and staff were fabulous, the food was great. We had the sea bass ribs and I can’t stop thinking about it. One of my girlfriends called in and sent us drinks and dessert and the chocolate tart/cake on the menu was perfection. Highly recommend! :)

                                                        The service was excellent. We were not rushed and the restaurant staff was very attentive to our table. We were seated in the lounge and enjoyed the DJ and ambiance of the room which was opened up to the outdoor seating area. Food was excellent.

                                                        I was attracted to Betula because of the entrée of Colorado Lamb Chops, which is one of my favorite choices. Much to my surprise the order arrived with only two chops rather than the usual four. While thick, juicy and tasty, I was really taken aback that at a price of $66 there were only two chops. I asked the server if this was the norm in Aspen and was told it was. We were offered free coffee in response to my complaint. It is a shame, because the restaurant was a gem in terms of ambiance, service and quality.

                                                        Presentation of food was very lackluster. I’m used to much more beautiful looking dishes at a lower price point both in Chicago and SanFrancisco. One dish was overdone and returned but did get taken off of the bill. Server was great.

                                                        We were in visiting Aspen for the week and love Betula! Although hesitant to go with our 18 month old, every associate at the restaurant was so thoughtful when it came to the comfort level for our daughter. We did not once feel like a burden or unwelcome. Not to mention the food is divine, the ambiance is perfect, and the service was excellent! We will continue to make this a must every trip!

                                                        Betula Aspen was a very nice experience of high quality service, ambiance, and creative cuisine. Great wine list. We started with Ceviche Bonito, soup of the day, and burrata with snow peas. Rack of lamb and Peking Duck followed. A great place. Don’t miss it.

                                                        A beautiful restaurant, wonderful staff. Great menu but the small kitchen I suspect made our requests for medium to medium rare main courses all over cooked.

                                                        Betula is our favorite restaurant in Aspen. The ambiance, food, and service is incredible.

                                                        Food was OK. Certainly not a value for the price point. A place to be seen, food could be better.

                                                        Food, service and wine list were outstanding. I honestly don't think you'd be disappointed by anything you ordered. The kids menu options were thoughtful and healthy. Only downside for us was the music. It was loud and somehow out of sync with the fine dining experience. Having said that, it didn't seem to bother the other diners at all. We'll definitely be returning.

                                                        Not worth the price tag. We ordered the special NY Strip and for a $110 steak, it was at least 50% fat and frankly it wasn't edible. We also got the Burrata which the waiter cleared before we finished it. All around a mediocre restaurant and not worth the hype or the price tag.

                                                        The meal and service were perfect, true fine dining mixed with great service in a lovely setting. I only gave 4 out of 5 due to the price of the wine which is pretty high in my opinion. I have been told by another establishment this is par for Aspen but be prepared. Having said that, the bottle of Chablis we chose was excellent and overall we had a really excellent experience.

                                                        My wife and I went to Betula on our 40th anniversary Aspen trip! We sat outdoors with the beautiful view of the mountains. The fire pit next to us was very nice. My wife had the salmon which was excellent. I had the duck foie gras and the rack of lamb. Both were very good. We didn’t have room for dessert but what the heck, we ordered the apple Napoleon. We made the right choice. Do not leave this restaurant before trying it. Unbelievably good.

                                                        Loved our first time here! Wish we could have gotten more bread to go with our burrata, steak was also over cooked but nonetheless everything tasted great! The whole staff & Som was very friendly and helpful - loved the ambiance. Can’t wait to go again!

                                                        Music could be lower so that people could hear each other. Otherwise great.
