Great French Bistro feel in the heart of Aspen

Great spot if you love traditional French Bistro style food. The restaurant was crowded & noisy (which I like) so maybe thats not for everyone. A delightful treat was the fresh hot French baguette presented at the table in a brown paper bag (straight from the boulangerie perhaps!). The food was... read more

We go to Aspen every year to ski and we visit Rustique each time but unfortunately this year it was disappointing. We were seated by the kitchen. The place was packed and really loud.We felt like sardines in a pack. Three tables with uneven heights were put together for our group of 9 which made the wine and water glasses... More

Great French food, wine and service in a cosy and authentic atmosphere. The French onion soup and rabbit were delicious.

Our group of 26 took the wine cellar room for dinner. The owner and general manager took care of us personally. Highly recommend this place for your group or team.

Rustique is my favorite place to eat in Aspen! Best truffle fries and Mac and cheese! Salmon is also fantastic! The lighting and ambience is on point, they even have extra reading glasses. Definitely a must to check out.

This is the most down to earth restaurant we could find in Aspen. Not over the top but food and service that is spot on. Far and away better than any other place we ate on this trip to Aspen. The Roasted Chicken was KILLLLERRRR! I always judge a great restaurant by a good roasted Chicken. My wife had the... More

Rustique continues to win on all levels. We like to sit at the bar and they serve very well made, well priced and delicious french bistro standards. The bartender and all front of house are excellent, friendly and professional they make you feel like a local or it's your special night. I would recommend coming during happy hour and sitting...

What a great variety on the menu. I had the duck which is not my usual choice. It was absolutely amazing. Large portion; couldn't even finish it. Both my 19 y/o sons had the pot au pouf..something like that and they were amazed with the flavor I had a bite and it was falling apart as I picked it up... More

The variety of items available on the menu seems, at first glance, to be limited. This is deceiving, as is seems as if each dish is completely and totally distinct from the other. So, while small in number, the choices really are quite extensive. The variety of French-inspired items (including the unusual but delicious frogs legs and sweetbreads!!) is really,... More
