I love the ever changing menu. In the summertime Plato's sources most of their ingredients from local, organic farms and butchers. They are always cooking what's seasonal. The view is also really spectacular.

The food, the service, the view, the drinks! It's all great and I love being here! Last time I was here the night couldn't have been better! The food was incredible, the staff was attentive, the wine list was phenomenal! I really love Plato's and will continue dining here so long as I live in this town! Hands down the best view at sunset in the entire valley, which is quite a statement!

I was lucky enough to experience a wine dinner at Plato's recently. The meal was spectacular, the I still dream of the duck cassoulet that started the dinner. They paired every course beautifully with an amazing Michael David wine, including two varietals from their Inkblot series. I don't know that I could have asked for more. Service was stellar, the team was on top of our every need. The food was divine, every dish embraced the intricacies of the wines they paired with it. Plato's is hands down the place not to miss when dining in Aspen, between the view, the food, and the service, the entire experience is remarkable!

if we define Aspen as a refined but intimate venue, where the beauty of the landscapes combined with luxury and sophistication but the permanent feeling of relaxed and intimate atmosphere makes a unique destination, Plato's Restaurant at Aspen Meadows represents the best of this town.
I visited the best restaurants in New York, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Mexico city, and Plato’s has nothing to envy them all; the service was excellent, the quality and freshness of the ingredients was supreme, all this in combination with the incredible chef skills made the most unforgettable dinner experience.
I can assure that this is a hidden gem and a must if you visit Aspen

The restaurant had a $120 per person menu. Most people at our table enjoyed the quality of the food. Service was good. Not many people there so it was intimate.
