No mention of special occasion from any staff even though it was documented on reservation.
65.00 for Dover sole and small potion of rice, little veggies.
Beet salad and we had to ask for beets to go with it.
Food tasted good but nothing over the top.
Don’t think I’ll be running back or telling friends and Im a local.

The food was wonderful but we were rushed through the whole meal. Things were served so fast that we finished dinner in slightly over and hour. In addition, there were empty tables so there wasn’t even a rude business purpose to this bad service. Finally, they brought the check with the dessert. Insulting.

Waiter never came back to check on us! After food was ordered the waiter NEVER came back! Not once to check on us or ask if we would like another drink. It was busy, but we had to wait 10-15 minutes after our food was done to get the bus person to find our waiter to give us our check. Our waiter still did not bring us the check. another waiter, unrelated to our table brought it over. Shockingly bad service and basically no attention to the customer once our order was placed.

Chicken was raw in the middle and had to be sent back. Wine was not poured into the glass properly, and plates were not served/taken away appropriately. I do not feel that the quality of food (nor the level of service) reflects the rating of this restaurant. Would not go back.

My husband and I celebrated my recent milestone birthday at Pinon’s at the recommendation of friends. What a lovely evening it was! We were warmly greeted by Tim, the manager, and our waitstaff provided perfect service throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband had pork that was beautifully prepared. Rob, the owner, stopped by for a chat and to wish me a happy birthday. We were wined and dined by everyone at Pinon’s, and will undoubtedly visit again when next we’re in Aspen. Highly recommend!

My expensive lamb chops were not prime and definitely not worth the price tag! However, My husband did love the veal chop! As for the service, I believe our waiter was dead from the neck up. At these prices, a little attentiveness would have been appreciated. This restaurant may be living off it's reputation and not present day reality!

While the food was delicious, I find it objectionable to be charged a split fee of $8, given that two dishes were ordered, in addition to a glass of wine, and none of these items were inexpensive. I made the mistake of using the word "split" regarding the entree and, by golly, they tacked on an extra $8 on top of the price (already $52) of the entree, without even itemizing that fee on the check. I can't imagine that the $8 is more significant to this restaurant than maintaining goodwill. Live and learn.

Sorry to say from the moment we walked in the service was unfriendly and bordering on rude. Our server was indifferent to us. The food was excellent so cheers to the chef. That's apparently what keeps them in business.

Not my first time at Pinions, which I always have considered one of the top 2-3 restaurants in Aspen. This latest visit affirmed my opinion. Outstanding and creative menu, delicious food and first rate service. Also, amazing wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. It boasts a very comfortable and warm ambience. The halibut and pasta special (seafood ravioli) were to die for.

The trout was exceptional. Very extensive wine selection. We split the iceberg salad and it was a perfect size and delicious. My husband loved his filet...perfectly cooked with delicious mashed potatoes. The service was fantastic once we told them after about 10 minutes we haven't seen a waiter. Service was friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

A little disappointed---despite notating that we are celebrating my wife's birthday when we booked the table on Opentable, that was not noted. Luckily, I was able to "remind them" discretely, when my wife stepped out briefly.
Food was good. Wine list good. Saved the night
