Pinons has been located in downtown Aspen,across the street from the historic Hotel Jerome since February of 1988 and has been locally owned and operated since then.The dining room, which seats 130,recently re-decorated in a mountain contemporary style,evokes the casual sophistication that has come to symbolize Aspen. The windows frame picturesque Aspen Mountain. The cuisine has been described as traditional American influenced heavily by local products and current trends. Pinons has received many renowned awards but cherishes most the recognition by locals as the most coveted reservation in town. The intention is to create an experience that is unique yet comfortable; create food that is creative yet approachable. You will want to go for a special occasion and for a night out with friends to have a bite in the bar and chat with the locals. You don't leave Pinons disappointed - quite the contrary. The intention is to exceed expectations. Pinons is a must for any visit to Aspen.

We did the private cabana and it was awesome! So charmingly decorated, plus had a Bluetooth speaker for us to crank on our own music. Great service and food was good.

Upon entering a man greeted us and took our reservation information. He left to check on our table we assumed. A tall blond woman then asked us for the same info again. Upon informing her we already did this process she rudely excused us and proceeded to seat two groups behind us. The man in the plaid shirt returned and realized he had forgotten about us. Just lots of uncomfortable mismanagement and standing around the entry.

The carrots on the Dover sole were so hard that my butter knife could not penetrate them at all. I had to request a steak knife.

Ordered tuna tacos, ribeye and pork tenderloin followed by chocolate bread pudding. Everything was superb: food, service and attention to detail. Pricing makes it a special event only for us, but we have been many times and always love it.

Had to knock them down as the restaurant was jam packed and they must have been ignoring local COVID protocols.

Our beef filets were so tough they could not be cut with the steak knife. Nobody ever asked us how our food was. They simply cleared our plates and brought desert menus.

Can not thank Rob (the owner) and the team at Pinions enough. The entire experience was exceptional. If you have the chance, book the private snow globe cabana and enjoy a private experience under the stars. The restaurant is busy but they team handles it with 5-star hospitality. Champagne, wine and Steaks were perfection.

I would have a hard time selecting the better of the food or the service.

For main courses we had Trout with Crab and Buffalo Tenderloin. Both were perfectly prepared. Accompaniments were spot on. Flavor balance was perfect.

Wine list is incomparable and the knowledgeable Sommelier was well informed, helpful, and entirely approachable.

Waiter knew the menu, ingredients, and preparations.

Really cannot say enough good about this restaurant.

Pinons was lovely! We had a nice table in the corner with a view of Aspen mountain. The tables were spaced out comfortably and it felt very safe. The waitstaff were all attentive, meal was delicious and the wine was perfect. Every aspect was perfect, and it was well worth the cost!

Long standing Aspen restaurant, now a little dated. Food was good, not outstanding. Nice wine list, pricing about Aspen standard. Still gave great service.

Daughter moving away

In having my master card for 22 years, I have never lost it.

The waiter managed to lose my card between me paying and bringing the check back for me to sign at the table with no card. I never left the table.
I called the next day and they acted like it was my error. They completely lost my credit card.

Pinons is always such a special treat! Never disappoints. Food, ambiance, service - hard to decide which is better. We don't go out much during Covid but this is one place we feel very safe and comfortable - they are doing an excellent job during such a hard time. Wine list is exceptional! Such a wonderful evening!!

Dining out in Aspen during a pandemic with a party of eight and several children. That’s a tough ask but Pinions served us well and we had a night to remember. A real treat. The food was wonderful and the staff were friendly and professional with our children. Our wine recommendation from the Sommelier was spot on. Our best meal in Aspen so far. Despite our rowdy bunch (thankfully they let us use their private tent. We thanked them for this as did the rest of their guests!) I’m happy to report that Pinions is still standing and ready to welcome you for some fine dining. Cheers!

I have been coming to Pinions for more years than I care to mention as had my business partner who was with me but no more. The place was a joke with their pre fixe $150 menu where I got a crab cake, salad and not that great of an entrée. Its really sad to see but I will head to Jimmy or Steak 316 or so many other places and will say goodbye Pinions. They also added upcharges for little things and tacked on a 20% tip without telling us. It was upwards of $1,500 for 6 people and not even close to being worth it. Also almost everyone's food was undercooked.
