    Very chic! Loved the menus. Food was exactly as expected, great! Robust flavors and excellent service. Location is prime! Right next door to the gondola and walking distance for all the best shopping. Staff was delightful!

    The flavor profiles on every dish was off. It was particularly noticeable when the mixed vegetables, which was essentially a mix of potatoes and onions didn’t even taste like vegetable. In addition, we couldn’t understand the waiter’s explanation of any dish. We had recommended to a number of folks to go to this restaurant based on our experiences last year. Never again. 2 appetizers, one side and dessert -$137.

    We were a party of 12. While they accommodated our large group in two reservations to sit together, and our server was amazing… the hostess was very rude. As we were packing to leave, she began to rush us. Spoke to me very condescendingly as if I didn’t know what time it was. The manager offered champagne as an apology for our experience but we don’t drink. The food is a bit over priced and the kitchen was slow but that was expected given our size group.

    It took 30 minutes for someone to even ask for our waters and another 30 minutes for the staff to even notice no one helped our table. The food was so average for the price point. They messed up 3 drinks and 2 food orders. The portion sizes are all over the place and we were guided incorrectly with the amount of people we had. The manager was rude didn’t even care no one helped us and they messed up so much of our order. I never leave a review but this probably was the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant and the food is so average and the service was actually terrible….

    It has a great view but I had a few issues first I couldn’t find the entrance and of all the staff there nobody could help me, once I got my food the fries were soggy, the cubanos really dry and they didn’t have any Diet Coke. The only thing I would recommend is the dessert, it was the best part.

    This place is really nice but I think the management is very poor and if they dont step up their game it won't last. The food is yummy but they run out of their popular dishes all the time. Also the waiters are not trained on what the menu has. It seems like is not been run very professionally.

    They were out of the sushi roll and the famous skull dessert(which was only reason we brought our kids). We ordered the seafood tower and found a bug in the ice. They did not charge us, but no manager came over. However, our server was excellent about the situation. Prob not going back soon.

    Ambiance was beautiful. Service was friendly but rushed. Our entrees arrived while eating appetizer. Hadn’t even finished first drink. At these prices, would like a little more time to enjoy drinks, ambiance and company. We were out of the restaurant in one hour. They were closing the next day for 2 months. I think the staff was just ready to be done. Overpriced.

    Make reservations for our 23rd anniversary base off some review from Yelp. Other than environment, nothing this place have to offer. I will make simply put as follow after spend almost $200 for dinner at this place. 1. Menu very limited and even when my wife ordered a trout dish the waitress later come out said they are out. Can’t belief it. 2. Everything come out very very extremely salty. I order braised rib barely can’t finished a second piece of meet out of three. 3. Music, I thought such place odd to have some smooth easy music but no yeak. 4. Can’t belief there is no soups on the menu period. 5. Lastly, NOT worth even it was $60 meals. Please take your money somewhere else so much for yelp’s review.

    We started with appetizers and cocktails outside, then moved inside for a lovely dinner with a great view of the mountain from behind the impressive interior bar. The staff in particular were responsive and always nearby without being hovering. The restaurant and bar decor were great, the music was lively but not too intrusive, and the cocktails were interesting and tasty! Highly recommended and we'll definitely go back when we're in Aspen again!
