Lunch outside among wild flowers, and the sound of a waterfall added to the great time. Food was delicious!

Great setting, great food, high prices. This is about 12 miles away from aspen at the end of a valley. Worth the trip.

Lovely setting in the mountains about 40 minutes away from Aspen. Everything is good but the pricing may be erratic. Watch out for hidden costs like adding salmon to your salad for an extra $29. The food is fresh and well prepared.

Call the restaurant. Like many places in Aspen, they are seasonal. A lot of places close mid to end of October until December.
