Everything was delicious, but the egg yolk ravioli stands out! A great appetizer. Everyone went above and beyond to offer wine pairings, food suggestions and just to make sure we were okay. Great atmosphere for our last night in Aspen. The Valrhona Sphere was a fun, delicious dessert.

A wonderful restaurant for fine foods and a variety of libations in the Little Nell Hotel. In Winter there is a large after-ski social environment, but the "living room" off of the lobby, is always filled with wall to wall BEUTIFUL people, &, if one is interested in people watching, this is the place to be and socilize.

We got engaged in Aspen in Jan 2016 and dined at Element 47 that evening. It was such a wonderful experience we decided to go back for our wedding! We were just married in a small ceremony (only us and our two children) and arranged for a private room at Element 47. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. They... More

This elegantly appointed, small, galley style restaurant is well situated in the Little Nell Hotel at the base of Aspen Mountain. The clamor from the adjacent bar, including competing music, causes it to be fairly noisy. The waiters/waitresses and maitre'd are friendly. Try not to be seated by the door to the kitchen, (where we were seated), as the tight... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a recent ski trip to Snowmass. We stayed in the Snowmass Village. It was easy to get here using the free shuttle bus service from Snowmass Village to the Ruby Park Transit Center in downtown Aspen (about 30 to 40 minute ride because of multiple stops). It is just a short walk... More

I had very high expectations from Element 47. I had heard great things about Element 47 and I've been a fan of Little Nell since the '80s. And I used to love Montagna.

Description
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.
