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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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...
