Decent ambience. Poor food. . The steak was chewy and the tuna appetizer was really foul tasting. The chicken salad was dry and tasteless.

We've eaten at The Artisan in the bar several times; however, this was our first time eating in the dining room-big mistake! Our server was inattentive and the dining room wasn't even busy! We had to ask other servers and the bus boy for more water, order additional drinks, and check on our dinner (which took a very long time). Stick to the bar area to enjoy the good food and much better service.

We dined at The Artisan and had a wonderful meal, as usual. The menu is creative and has a good variety of choices. The service is OK but the food more than makes up for that. It can get a little noisy due to it's proximity to the bar, but it's not too bad. We enjoy eating here every year when we stay at the hotel it's part of. The breakfast omelet bar is quite good too!

Good food the first night we ate at the restaurant- the ruby trout was fantastic. The second evening when we took a friend there- they ran out of the trout . We were very disappointed since this is not a special but part of their regular menu. We ordered the duck and scallops and they were not as good!

I was visiting Aspen/Snowmass with friends and Artisan was recommended as a great spot for groups.

The service was good and the space itself was nice -- roaring fire and cozy interiors. The food was pretty good, too. I had short ribs, which were tasty, but the accompanying polenta was overpowering.

My fellow diners were relatively happy with their food. The overall vibe was a bit sedate for our group of 30-somethings.

We had a great caprese salad-burrata and wonderful heirloom tomatoes. I think it was the most delicious I've ever had. Our friends had a scallop dish--they said these were the best scallops in the region. We had a steak dish--it tasted great and all the accompaniments had a lot of flavor. I had to take a doggy bag home.

We fully enjoyed our meal at the Artisan. We went for an early dinner so it was quiet, but I can imagine the restaurant to have more energy at peak times. Nice big windows to show off the surrounding trees make for pleasant dining environment. My husband ordered the soup of the day and said it was probably the best soup he had ever had! Everyone in our party thought their meal was delicious. The only disappointment was that we weren't able to make it back for a second visit during our stay in Snowmass! We will definitely have to return next time!

Doc Eason, the Magician, was not only the highlight of our evening at the Artisan -- and he is genuinely great -- but really was the only thing to recommend the restaurant which, while lively, was overwhelmed by an only partially full room, resulting in very poor service and only ok food -- which will not cut it in Aspen/Snowmass, where the cuisine is so good.

Hands down, THE white tablecloth restaurant in Snowmass. Thoughtful, but not particularly large, menu. It's a hotel restaurant so it has to cover a lot of options. Great ingredients.

The Artisan staff is outstanding. My reservation was at 10:00 AM, and they called at 8:30 AM to remind me that their breakfast ends at 10:00 AM. Regardless of the time transfer, they sat us at 10:07 AM and still served us breakfast. The custom omelets were amazing, and the service was great. We did not look for any condiment for a second before one was being rushed to our table.

Had a great dinner while on a Snowmass ski vacation, party of 8 with 4 kids, 2 under 8. Terrific food (caesar salad with white anchovies was solid, hangar steaks were perfectly done, and braised short ribs were melt in mouth) and great atmosphere -- service was great, too, and everyone (kids included) left happy. Really happy place that would work for a special occasion for 2 up to a large family party, Would highly recommend.

The atmosphere is intimate, warm and embracing, perfect after a "hard" day throwing yourself down the snow covered mountains, trying to keep up with your teenager! Every bite of everything we ordered was a flavorful sensation and divinely enjoyed by each of us, including the Maine Lobster Pot Pie, Truffle fries, Flat Iron Steak--that chimichurri sauce is tantalizing!, grilled Artichoke, apple tart a la mode! Can't wait to return and try a few other things! The wine complemented perfectly! Thank you!!

This is a regular spot when in Snowmass, one of the more gourmet dining spots in the Village. The trout is always delicious. The wait staff were very accommodating of splitting checks, entrees etc for our group of 8 one night last week. Was also here with a friend and staff was quite attentive. Food was beautifully presented and delicious.
