An Aspen classic with great food, great service, and great staff. I recommend the bar menu program, you'll get the best of Pinons at about 1/3 the cost.

We had a romantic dinner - two appetizers (seafood pasta and duck quesadilla) for her and salad and lamb for me. The wine listing is huge but varied in price and selection and the Somm is very helpful (and I know wines). Lovely St Joseph; very reasonable.Very attentive but not intrusive staff. Dessert was a great Creme brulee (best my... More

I had the tofu & squash enchiladas and my husband had the rack of lamb; and we both had an amazing mushroom soup. Both our main courses were delicious and memorable.

Pinions is an elegant place for a nice dinner, very well presented quality food . I recommend as an appetizer the crab cake or the scallops, as a main dish the rack of lamb or the Sole. For dessert the chocolate bread pudding.

Pinons is one of our favorite restaurants in Aspen. Beautiful view of the mountains from this second story restaurant, Great food (have the Colorado rainbow trout!) and impeccable staff. Good atmosphere- you can't go wrong!

Our first trip to Aspen and a frequent visitor recommended Pinon's. The restaurant is casual but sophisticated. The service was attentive and knowledgable. Everyone in our party tried a different dish and the stand outs were the Tomato Soup and the Veal Chop. The soup was a special that day but the stuffed veal is on the menu and was... More

We've been in Aspen for years. tried lots of restaurants. mostly, they come and go, or just die a slow death. Pinons is the exception. food is always great- prepared exactly the way I want it ( and i'm pretty picky) fresh and of the highest quality. the staff is unfailingly professional, ambience is cozy and welcoming. This past week,... More

This restaurant thought of every detail. The service from the minute one walks in the door, the menu, the excellent food, the attentive but not overbearing service throughout dinner, and the decor were all excellent. We noticed two gentlemen discretely cruising and observing making sure that everything was being done as they wished. The attention to detail was clear throughout... More

We have eaten here off and on for several years. The service is very good and the buffalo was also very good. Two people in our group felt that the halibut was nothing to rave about. Twenty dollars for a bowl of mushroom soup seemed a bit much although they liked the taste and texture. Just beware when no price... More

We go to Aspen several times a year, but this was the first time We've had the pleasure of dining at Pinon's. It will definitely not be the last, as we both agree it was among (if not THE) best meals we have had in Aspen. We started with the crispy oysters with caviar, then I had a very perfect... More
