The AAA Diamond Program

The Experiences You Expect

AAA Diamond Designations are among the most well-known and respected distinctions in the global travel industry.

AAA Diamond Designations for restaurants represent a combination of the overall food, service, décor and ambiance offered by the establishment. The descriptive ratings are assigned exclusively to establishments that meet and uphold AAA’s rigorous approval standards.

A Five Diamond restaurant offers leading-edge cuisine, ingredients and preparation with extraordinary service and surroundings. 0.2% of reviewed restaurants earn this designation.

A Four Diamond restaurant offer distinctive fine dining well-served amid upscale ambience. 2.3% of reviewed restaurants earn this designation.

Congratulations to all of Colorado's Five & Four Diamond Designated Restaurants!
