Unfortunately we did mot have the best experience. The service was terrible, our waitress was nice but lacked in service. We had to ask multiple times for water, she did mot clear our dirty plates even with taking multiple glances at our table when walking by.

When we arrived we were told that the shrimp plate was sold out soy husband ordered the duck, after he ordered the waitress came tp tell us that was sold out now too so he ordered the steak which the waitress said was 16oz but the menu says 8oz. He asked for the seal to be medium rare. It came well done. So we just sent it back and did mot ask for a replacement. By that time he was fed up with the whole experience. I also asked for the dressing on the salad to come on the side. Guess what the salad came with dressing. We were very sad with our whole experience.

It was a pleasant evening and we sat on the deck, which is quiet and serene. First time for dinner, and it was terrific—creative, nicely executed, everything done with flair. Main-dish prices might seem high, but portions are huge; expect to take home leftovers, or just share a main and start with some of the delicious appetizers.

As the restaurant is in the Airport Business Center, I was not expecting much ambience but I was very wrong. The large bank of windows and white walls made the space feel very open and inviting. I loved the grey placemats on the grey slate tables with the perfectly mismatched plates. The servers were attentive and continually refilled our lavendar glasses. The music was at the right level and who doesn't love Eric Clapton.

We started with the ribs and the elote corn. Both were amazing. I'll be honest though the one thing I thought was that the elote was a bit overpriced for one piece of corn cut into 3/4 pieces. For mains, we had jerk chicken, lobster salad and chicken friend rice, all of which were great. The truffled yucca fries are the bomb. You have to order them! And we finished, with the beignets, which were so light and fluffy with vanilla and chocolate sauces.

And as a bonus, the chef gifted my daughter a fresh from the oven, croissant and it was to die for. I love a chef who makes an appearance:) We will be back, sooner than later! Can't believe we haven't been in sooner! YUMMY! Highly recommend. Go immediately!

Very memorable evening. We loved everything that we ordered, and the flavors, spices, can't be found anywhere else. Mawa is culinary genius. It's would be worth going back to Aspen just to dine at Mawa's Kitchen. Lastly, our server JT was so knowledgeable and delightful that she truly enhanced our dining experience.

After reading all the positive reviews, I was disappointed with this restaurant. Ambience: This restaurant isn't in the downtown area of Aspen - it's in a "business center" across from the airport which I didn't realize when I booked the reservation but by then it was too late to cancel (there's a $70 cancellation charge per guest). They don't misrepresent their location, but I'd expect more value than what you get. At least it's easy to get a parking spot. The inside of the restaurant was frigid (thermostat said 68) so we ended up putting our ski jackets back on to eat (luckily the staff turned up the heat for us). Food: was ok. We went near the end of the ski season and they were out of several items. I had the "Little Gem" salad with chicken added. Part of the lettuce on the salad was too tough to eat - it was the heart of the plant and looked like it might have been all they had available so I got stuck with it. The Wagyu Beef Top Sirloin that my wife ordered was fair. The mac n cheese and salmon were good.

Mawa's is amazing.

I was skeptical when I first looked at the menu because they serve multiple different cuisines (japanese, african, mexican, american, etc). The chefs execute each dish flawlessly. Mawa's offers something for everyone... Even your vegan friends.

Can't beat the value. I've have paid far to much $$$ for mediocre meals in downtown aspen. Mawa's is high quality food that I wouldn't feel empowered to cook myself.

Can't wait to come back!

Mawa’s kitchen was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. I ordered the jerk chicken bowl and it was absolutely to die for. The staff were friendly and attentive, and gave us a free slice of carrot cake for my boyfriend’s birthday. Don’t let the location fool you - it is out of the way of downtown Aspen but absolutely worth visiting. I will be going here anytime I am in Aspen!

Beautiful new dining room. Each dish was prepared with care. They were all gorgeous. The colors, the flavors! I recommend the hummus, Meatballs in tomato sauce with pesto (fresh color and flavors), Carnitas (there was a rainbow of color with this dish), Ramen is always a favorite and lastly, Polenta w/ grilled vegetables. Always fresh, always amazing. A must each visit!

Nice, covered outdoor seating area for dining in a very unassuming area of town. Danielle and David were wonderful servers, and the food was high quality and delicious. I’d go back just to get the chicken soup, but all the dishes we got were fantastic. We didn’t get dessert, but wish we had. We were too full. We’ll go back the next time we’re in the area.
