Cute little place with very good service, an impressive menu and a wine list that's ridiculously unaffordable for the average bear. The best dish we had was the Veal Loin Scaloppine, which was done in the Piccata style: Generous meat portion with a tangy light brown , lemon caper butter sauce, delicious potato purée and garlic spinach. A steal at $30. Next best was the Fig Salad, with very fresh field greens, a crispy slice of pancetta and mild blue cheese crumbles. After some searching, we found four little pieces of port-marinated figs. A touch more generosity might be in order. Finally, the Lobster Ravioli dish was interesting. Unfortunately, the ravioli flavor was overwhelmed by the hearty mushroom sauce.
If you stick to a couple of glasses of wine and pick your dishes judiciously, this can be a reasonably priced dinner.

Food delicious, service great, but we had a gift card they would not allow us to tip on, so we had to give an additional credit card even though they already had our money.

My party of three all got different entrées and appetizers and every single item was extremely bland. The service was seriously lacking too. Our server barely checked in on us during the entire dinner. We were looking forward to dining here and were very disappointed !

Tables for two are not at all cozy. All the better situated tables are for four or larger parties which does not make sense since larger parities are louder. The parties for two are out in the middle of the room with no privacy. Food and service is great, too bad it's not that great to take a date.

The bartender Amy took good care of me. This is a great place to dine at the bar and order ANYTHING with fresh figs. I enjoyed the burrata with fresh figs ( without the prosciutto )— large portion large enough for two as app or even one as a main.
The branzino ( whole but decapitated $45) with a side of fresh spinach was wonderful.
Don’t look for “ bargains” in Aspen. They don’t exist

We celebrated our anniversary here and enjoyed every second from stepping into The Wild Fig for dinner, to leaving at the end of the night. The cocktails are incredible, the whole fish was fabulous, and the service was friendly, engaging, and timely. I highly recommend The Wild Fig!

Excellent food, good atmosphere, friendly and professional service in a fairly tight setting. We thoroughly enjoyed the fig salad, Spanish fish stew stew and puff pastry for dessert. Staff was friendly and professional. bartender made excellent Blantons perfect Manhattans. Good vibe is cool and lively. The only thing that kept this restaurant from obtaining five stars is the closeness of the tables. I think that if management would reduce seating bike two tables The restaurant would be rated five stars and one of the finest that Aspen has to offer

Don't miss the Chocolate Tartufo for dessert. It's so good we went back a second night just for this dish! It's a sphere of ice cream with a thick coating of dark chocolate sitting on a puddle of salted caramel sauce -- oh my!

Wild Fig is our favorite restaurant in Aspen! The ambiance, inside or out, is inviting and warm. The patio offers a lovely, intimate dining setting with views of beautiful Aspen. Indoor seating is equally inviting with cozy tables and booths. We always enjoy the food at Wild Fig. There are multiple fish choices and delicious homemade pastas.
Steven, our waiter, was friendly, attentive and funny. Loved the service.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at The Wild Fig. After doing extensive restaurant research, we had a better than expected meal. The Fig salad was a gem, the spicy shrimp very much so 🌶 the videographer @ the next table was a cool cat! Our waiter was so-so. All in all, quite a memorable, romantic and yummy meal.

My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday. The entrance into the restaurant is quite awkward, as you have to weave through seated guests on the patio to get to the host stand inside. Once greeted by the hostess, we had the option of sitting on the patio directly beside another couple or inside at a table next to the bar and right beside the kitchen in a heavily trafficked area. We opted to sit at our own table inside. Please note: we made reservations. We both ordered the rhubarb gin and tonic which were relatively sweet and unexpected. Our server was good for the most part, although he urged us to order to more expensive menu items when asking for his requests instead of catering our tastes to what the most enjoyable food option would be for us. We ordered the octopus and chorizo to start which was just alright. No real flavor. The octopus was relatively tender but again, lacked flavor. We also ordered the French onion soup, which was delicious, but it’s also an easily executed menu item. For our main courses, we ordered the seafood fettuccine and nightly risotto. The nightly risotto was delicious with beef and mushrooms, however, the chili vodka cream sauce served with the fettuccine is not at all spicy or hot. It too lacked flavor. A lobster tail complete in the shell comes with that dish which was a surprise. We ordered a bottle of Etude with dinner which was delicious and the woman pouring wine was one of the highlights of our dining experience at the Wild Fig. For dessert, we ordered to cheesecake mousse which was delicious. Our service wasn’t terrible but my boyfriend and I both concluded that we aren’t taken very seriously by our server given how young we were. We didn’t feel like a priority and it seemed as though this is the type of place that enjoys turning tables and doesn’t appreciate customers who like to dine slowly and enjoy the overall experience. When we revisit Aspen, we will likely dine somewhere else.

An evening out with my mother... what a nice combination of delicious cuisine, great service and charming surroundings. We’ll be back! We particularly enjoyed all the ways figs were introduced into the dishes. Delicious even though I’ve never really loved figs. And the wine selection is impressive...

The food was pretty disappointing, especially after all the buzz. My pasta dish was sad - no flavor, oily, asparagus was flavorless, I ate very little of it. A friend's pork chops were very good, as was the wine. Most other things were only so-so. Suggestion: Wild Fig frites need aioli instead of (or along with) ketchup.

Party of 4 on Saturday evening. Promptly seated and attended to with menus and drink orders. An order of truffle fries didn't arrive with appetizers, when we brought it to waiters attention after main's arrived, just cancelled. Also, one main was to be split with both having sauces on the side, one standard and one non-seafood. Both arrived with seafood sauce on the protein and non-seafood extra sauce on side. Addressed fairly quickly. Also, one entree was ordered with absolutely no sodium added, and it was - not good for someone on low sodium diet.

Having said that, the flavors and quality of food was top notch.

Staff was friendly, but for these prices expect a higher level of attention to detail for what is ordered.
