We had a very nice dinner. I enjoyed the the French onion soup and the saffron scallops. My wife loved the salade chevre chaud. We will definitely go back when we are in Aspen.
Thank you for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us! Our French onion soup has actually been labeled “best to be found in US ski country” by one of the major ski publications in the country! We look forward to your visit the next time you are in town!
The service and food quality are tops. Everything on the menu at this restaurant is appealing. The covered outside seating area is quaint and perfect for any type of weather in the summer. The only drawback is the priciness, but overall it's a great experience.
Dear Elizabeth, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience at our cozy, one-of-a-kind bistro! We believe in providing a memorable dining experience that cannot be found anywhere else in Aspen – we hope that our prices (most of them very accommodating by Aspen standards) were justified by the overall experience. We sincerely hope you choose to dine with us again soon!
Love the menu, love every entree and appetizer, love the staff’s great attitude and the wine list if good as well. Between dining inside or in the “chalet” out on the curb or under the umbrella’s on the patio, they will treat your right, serve you great food and great cocktails as well as some great wine deals. Everyone who worked with us there was fantastic. We have already been back for happy hour and will be back many more times.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review! We are thrilled to hear that you had an enjoyable dining experience at our establishment. We pride ourselves on familiar, friendly service and are pleased to hear that this was your experience! Our French & Austrian co-owners created the design of the restaurant to be a truly authentic mountain chalet experience with a french flare! We look forward to your next visit!
We had a wonderful time having lunch here. The fondu was perfect & delicious. Highly recommend the charcuterie and roasted broccoli along with the traditional bread and apples. It’s a fondu take on the meat & cheese board. We paired it with cold, bubbly champagne. Perfect lunch date with my main squeeze in Aspen.
Dear Lauren, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience at our cosy, French, one-of-a-kind bistro! The fondue is a wonderful concoction of melted Gruyere & Emmental with a hint of garlic, white wine and kirsch! Our Fondue represents the sharing of warmth, food and good times and hope that this was your experience! Please visit us again soon!
Felt like we were in Paris! Charming restaurant with lots of energy. Food was great especially the goat cheese salad. Our waiter was delightful.
Very good lunch with son and his new bride.
Another bathroom would be nice
Fantastic food with intimate service.
I absolutely loved this restaurant. The only issue was - I booked a reservation through OpenTable and was never notified that it was pre-fix only for $120 per person. Make sure to double check on something like this (was a lot pricier than we anticipated). But the ambiance is AMAZING, I would definitely go back!
We had an early dinner before 6pm because we had a show. This allowed us to escape the $120 fixed price per person.
Food and service were good
One of the best restaurants in Aspen. Inventive food and really well-executed. Highly recommended.
The only time I could reserve was 6:45. I don’t like eating that early but the only other choice was after 9. The restaurant was nearly empty the whole time we were there. We left about 8:45 and many open tables. Was wondering if you set aside seating for walk ins. It was all fine but ambiance was very different than the last time I visited. Too quiet and too early.
One of my favorite places in Aspen Colorado. The patio is beautifully decked out and very inviting.
We are thrilled to hear that you had an enjoyable dining experience at our establishment! The French & Austrian co-owners created and designed the cozy bistro themselves, reminiscent of a mountain chalet with a french flare! We look forward to your next visit!
We ordered cheese fondue as our appetizer and our meals were served first.
It’s one of our favorite spots….just didn’t like having the fixed price which was the only option unless you were at the bar. But there are only 4 bar seats. So it was $120 per person for 3 courses. So it was hard to justify it you only wanted an appetizer and a salad.
We love this restaurant! 😀
I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant, it was truly an experience. First-class from start to finish and the ambiance is fabulous. We will be back!
Dear Margie, thank you for your kind words! We are delighted that you had a wonderful dining experience with us at our one-of-a-kind European styled bistro! We look forward to seeing you at our establishment again soon!
Best food around
Ambience was magical and food was fantastic! Highly recommend!
We were a group of seven people. The escargot is a must have just for the sauce. They should really make a soup from it or sell it in containers to take home. The fondue, French onion soup and mussels were delicious. I would not recommend the classic crepe. It is dry and nothing special, it needs a sauce. The fried egg on top makes you feel like you are eating a basic breakfast and is not necessary. I would recommend the scallops, short ribs, filet and Nirvana crepe. For dessert, the crepe Suzette has a very strong orange flavor, agreed to by four people in our group. I wish I would have ordered the Midnight in Paris instead. I would go back to this restaurant. I loved the room down stairs and the service was excellent. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Aspen.
Dear Dana, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us and would choose to join us again in the future! We are continuously looking for ways to improve our dishes and will definitely take you positive feedback into account! We truly look forward to seeing you again during your next visit to Aspen!
So great. Had issues with flies though. It was hot out and flies were bothersome outside
Food and wine was excellent, Angela was an amazing help with menu and wine
We had a reservation but they gave us a terrible table that was very uncomfortable and located right next to the kitchen. They took in a walk in before us and gave them a really lovely table. And then it turned out they only had a price fix menu that was a minimum of $120 per person without drinks which has not been advertised on the website. We decided to leave.
Great atmosphere in a great location. Service is European so just enjoy and don’t get in a hurry. Fondue and summer salad was pretty good.
Great food as always! We will be back again. Loved the French onion soup.
This was a really bad experience. The food was really poor and the wine was undrinkable all at an incredibly high price. The service staff was really nice and helpful but unfortunately could not make up for the abysmal cuisine and drink.
Great service, nice staff, food was delicious. The mussels were outstanding. such an adorable restaurant.
We made a mistake on our reservation and the hostess was so nice and accommodated us at the different time. Atmosphere inside is amazing and the crepes are next level!!
We loved their little outside booths. It was adorable with great atmosphere. The food was very good with much more generous portions than we were expecting. Our server was Ariel and she was fantastic. Would recommend for a night out with a special person.
Friendly staff. Some dishes excellent while others were mediocre. Be careful when ordering wine this establishment marks up wine at 4X retail! I brought this to the managers attention and she said I’ll pass your concerns on to the ownership.
Made a reservation for dinner (credit card required) and THEN found out that each person would be $120, plus wine, for a 3 course tasting menu. No other choices... no cancellations allowed within 24 hours... food was OK, by no means spectacular. Server was very good. Just not impressed with the value of the meal...
Wonderful, quaint dining experience with superb service.
Great food! Great service!
Everything here is wonderful !!! The location, ambiance
, service and especially the food was fantastic. I’m a huge fan of steak tartare and have had it all over the world. The steak tartare here is top tanked with what I’ve had in France and Switzerland.
My husband has had gnocchi all over world as well. This was his favorite !
I cannot wait to return again abs try their dinner
Absolutely outstanding food and ambiance. Drago made our experience in Aspen stellar with his service and local recommendations. Cannot speak highly enough of this place!
If you’re a burger lover like myself, you do not want to pass this place up! It’s a must every time I’m in town. Haven’t been for dinner, but would highly recommend sitting outdoors for lunch. Enjoy!
Amazing food, just always a bit expensive, but we know that going in.
