This French bistro has it all. Amazing food. Great service. Wonderful atmosphere. The frog's legs are divine. The duck is superb. The chocolate pot de creme is a personal favorite for dessert. Always at the top of my list when I visit Aspen.

This has been a pricey yet reliable place for dinner in Aspen for a long time. This visit was not good. First impression: Seemingly overwhelmed and rude hostess, despite the place being halfway empty on a Saturday night in January! The food didn’t cheer us...More

Despite the sympathy of the staff members the food was nothing especial for the price it was charged. Terrible presentation and taste just OK. Once again, the staff member were very kind.

This place is so quaint. The walls are covered in wood wine boxes and it is very cozy. The food smells great. Fondue, crepes, coq au vin is all good and resonably priced. The wine is very expensive so have a cocktail at another place...More
