Great wine service, a delicious crab appetizer, good roast duck brought our hopes up. But dry fois gras mousse, too sweet squash soup, fried quail, jello like chocolate mousse and the $400 per person cost had us yearning for Bouley.

My wife, three children and I unanimously vote that our best meal this holiday season was at Element 47. Joe was a fantastic waiter and the food was stupendous. We started with the grilled octopus, crab cakes and onion soup. All were excellent. Entrees included venison, duck, chicken, and squid ink pasta with lobster and uni. Each was better that... More

This is our go-to special occasion restaurant in Aspen. The staff are amazing (even with many new faces this season) and he food is always perfectly prepared and delicious. We were honored to try the "Pressed Duck" for two during our last visit ... finished table side, making it very retro-posh! Extensive wine list with very helpful somms. Always look... More

We went during happy hour and sat at the bar- not very comfortable, and very pricey. The best part was the free bar snacks, the sharing plates/appetizers were weird and not good. The "spring rolls" were actually egg rolls, deep fried to the extent that you couldn't taste the filling.

I am staying at the Little Nell for 3 nights and decided to try the hotel restaurant, Latitude 47, on my first night. Aspen has a very competitive high end dining scene so I was very interested to see what this restaurant had to offer. I also read that they have one of the world's greatest wine lists which was...

We ate at the bar with our pup. The bartender was incredibly helpful with menu items and ingredients and even brought our dog a peanut butter biscuit. Everything from the spare rib rolls to the salads and burgers were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Others may feel differently, but prices and portions met our expectations. Will definitely return to... More

As one of Fodor's best restaurants in Aspen, we went to Element 47 for my brother's 50th birthday. The food is pricey and the location was at the Little Nell which kinda made you think this place was going to be great. It SUCKED. All five of us got the $47 special which has a starter, dinner and dessert. Their... More

The food was fantastic, I had salmon and my husband had hanger steak. I also had the corn chowder which was so good and served with fresh hot bread! For dessert we had the creme brûlée, perfect!

Trust me....just go and don't think about what you are spending. You will have one of your finest meals ever (breakfast, lunch or dinner!). The Little Nell's staff is familiar with each item on the menu, and how to pair it with the right wines or cocktails. During the shoulder seasons, element47 offers a wonderful special in the restaurant (usually... More

It's been called Aspen's "finest spot to wine, dine and unwind." The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine -for breakfast, lunch, apres and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason we have enjoyed the rare 5-Star, 5-Diamond ranking for so long. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you'll be greeted with warmth, not formality. You'll find the ambience - ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, Jose Lerma - as fine as the dining.
