    Great restaurant tucked away in a commercial building across from the airport. This is a chef-owned business and the eponymous Mawa came by to greet us. The food was delicious and generously portioned. The description read French by way of Africa. The restaurant was celebrating Black History Month and had bunch of specials representing Black cuisine in America. Everything was well executed and delicious.

    The food was pretty good but definitely didn’t seem like it was worth the price even for Aspen. The cancellation policy is crazy. I wouldn’t recommend getting a reservation unless it is peak season and going to be super busy.

    First let me say that I read a lot of reviews before coming here and noted the extraordinary amount of raves which led me to make a reservation. Here are the pros and cons the way I see it: PROS: lovely atmosphere/ambience- but one thing - although I enjoyed the music, it was much too female focused, perhaps zero seven or Sia would be a nice compromise; excellent service - but it shouldn't have been anything less since we were the only ones dining at that time, aside from a family that had left 5 min. after we were seated; the food was excellent - we got the curry and duck shepherd's pie, wonderful spices in both dishes and the flourless chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream has to be, hands down, one of the most decadent desserts we've ever had. Now for the CONS: I was quite cold throughout, enough so that I had to put my down coat back on. It was very drafty - turned out most of the heat was in the ladies room; although we really did like our cherry Negronis - made with Luxardo liquor, for the price where was the luxardo cherry?? and what the most disappointing factor was that the food was extremely overpriced - this I had read about but ignored. I had read that this was a locals eatery - I sure don't know how the locals can afford to come here........

    Superb food - accompaniments as wonderful as entrees. Friendly, attentive, and charming service. Ambience very slightly degraded by the present commercial/office park location but I doubt this operation will have to stay there long. Most highly recommended!

    Atmosphere is not fancy. Dining room is very bare bones. But the food is outstanding. Very healthy, creative dishes with a French flair. We love going to Mawa's any time for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner. Entrees are tasty with very generous portions. Very nice wine selection as well. Always leave full and satisfied. One not of caution: If you go there for dinner on a cold night, dress warm. Dining room is very cold and drafty.

    We had my wife's Birthday dinner at Mawa's, and it was outstanding. Food was excellent, and our server was very attentive and friendly. The menu selection was especially impressive, with novel combinations of great flavors (we had the Patcones, followed by Vegan Curry Bowl and Archie Parmentier (duck shepherd's pie). And the pumpkin cheesecake was a great way to finish!

    Our dinner at MaWa's Kitchens ranks right up with some of the very best restaurants we have dined at. The food was spectacular-- the greens in the salad tasted as if they had been picked out back, washed and served; the truffle Mac and Cheese was hot, spicy and addictive, the chicken was hot, tasty and tender (just too much of it), and I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about the vegetable side dishes. Wine list was perfect for us and the chocolate flourless cake was beyond delicious. The only thing was how difficult it was to find MaWa's in the Airport Business Center in the dark. Took us quite awhile as we wound around and around the unnamed streets. With the help of the staff of MaWa's we were able to arrrive on time. So very worth it.

    One of the best meals I’ve ever had in Aspen with lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. The dining room is beautifully decorated, and the staff were all very friendly. Mawa came around to talk with every party in the restaurant, and they even gave us each a freshly-made chocolate-covered strawberry with our dessert! it was definitely worth the trip!

    2 of 3 cocktails were not good. 1 of starters never received; 1 was fair; 1 was very good Amish chicken was unremarkable and needed salt, ratatouille was substandard NY strip was dry, tough , overcooked and grainy…turns out it was supposedly bison. Menu made no mention of bison and kitchen does not know how to cook bison. Was expecting more from a $65 steak. Apparently had happened to several others but issue had not been corrected. Even though they did not charge us for bison/“NY strip”, it is difficult to think about returning.

    Incredible dinner with old friends visiting from out of town. Our meal and the ambience of the outside dining was just perfect. My wife and I have frequented Mawa's for several years; we've had wonderful breakfasts and lunches countless times. This was our first dinner, and we're wondering why we waited so long. We think what Mawa and Daniel have done with this restaurant is soooo good.
