The restaurant is tucked away and you'll miss it if you're not looking for it. We booked a late reservation, I am glad I was able to talk my cousins into checking this place out. It was a little crowded from larger crowds but the ambiance was nice. The drinks were nice and not watered down. The staff was friendly... More

This was our second visit within a week to Ellina's. We went back specifically to reconnect at the bar with bartender Kelly, and enjoy great food and atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed calamari, pasta, short ribs, chicken Milanese.....with great conversation and vibe. Highly recommend getting a bar side seat, and enjoy the experience!

We dined at Ellina on our first night in Aspen. The food and service was excellent, but the restaurant was packed. Ordinarily, the noise of a crowded restaurant isn't a deal-breaker, but there were two factors that made the dining experience less-than-perfect: 1) The restaurant's dining room is subterranean and the ceilings are fairly low, resulting in amplification of the...

Hi Don R- Thank you for dining with us at Ellina! Yes, we do start the evening off with the heaters on, especially lately when temps have dropped to low single digits and even below zero this past week. We are more than happy to turn heaters off and are able to flow cooler air into the space when guests... More

Ellina was a wonderful experience. We started with a delicious tuna tartar and bruchetta, and then had the to die for lamb chops! Finally there chocolate cake was a killer dessert. Overall wonderful food and staff.

I will never recommend anybody to go to this place. The temperature outside was -10c, we went in and they told us to wait 10 minutes for our table to be ready. They even ask us to take out our coats and leave them at the Coat Room. 5 minutes later they said our loud: "party of 6, you don't... More

Our concierge at the Jerome sent us to dine at Ellina. Unfortunately, our experience wasn't great. For me this falls into one of those trendy, too cool for school restaurants. Hey I'm all for being hip and beating your own drum, but then you'd better live up to the hype. We were greeted nicely by the hostess but it kinda... More

Ellina was incredible. Over the past 7 weeks, I've eaten at about 15 restaurants in Aspen. Ellina was (by far) the best. The ambiance, the staff, the service, and the food..all terrific. Highly, highly recommend.
