We’ve enjoyed many wonderful dinners at Flemings. We prefer it over Del Frisco’s because of service and consistent quality.

Terrific food and service. Our reservation was made 3 weeks in advance but we were delayed in being seated. The host did apologize and provided a complimentary appetizer which was great.

A favorite of locals and guests alike, Jing (formerly Asie) features a unique menu of modern Asian fusion, contemporary sushi, sashimi, and raw bar dishes. Fresh ingredients, creative cuisine, and an inviting atmosphere that inspire warmth and happiness. Jing delivers an authentic Asian experience right in the heart of downtown Aspen.

Beloved for his original approach to Asian dining, Chef Frank Lu’s techniques and artistry are showcased in signature dishes such as the roasted Peking duck, Maine Lobster Mapo Tofu, tomahawk steak, and spicy ginger-miso crispy whole fish.

If interested, you should reserve these signature dishes ahead of time, as we often run out: Peking duck, 13 - flavor fresh whole lobster, Kobe beef Tomahawk, and whole fish.

Food and service were excellent! Our party had a wide variety of menu selections and enjoyed each of them. The filet and deviled eggs were exceptional. Our server, Jaclin, guided us with our selections, and her easy going, friendly demeanor was a bonus to our evening!

02/21/2024. Party of 5, one in a wheelchair that they accommodated very nicely. The host was very sweet and helped me surprise my niece and it went off perfect. I should have got names, but I didn't remember to do that. He was outstanding in my book. The waitress was very well versed on menu and helped us with everything with kindness and knowledge. She was the best. Again, no name but look it up and praise them both. Then the food, Dear Lord it was amazing. We will be back and praise you to anyone who will listen. Peace and Love Folks.
