Super solid! Great French food!

Went for a birthday dinner and was easily accommodated. The Mac and cheese (award winning) was stellar. The Brussels sprouts are to die for. The duck confit was perfectly done and my blackberry smash cocktail was perfectly balanced. They have a great secluded patio but inside is beautiful as well... read more

Went for a birthday dinner and was easily accommodated. The Mac and cheese (award winning) was stellar. The Brussels sprouts are to die for. The duck confit was perfectly done and my blackberry smash cocktail was perfectly balanced. They have a great secluded patio but inside is beautiful as well. Service is attentive and awesome. Can't wait to go back.

Incredible dining experience! Authentic, delicious French cuisine served in a lovely, quaint French setting. Don't forget to use their large group room in the wine cellar for your business meeting.

Our dinner here was one of the best meals we had in Aspen. Both my husband and I had the Steak au Poivre, which was tender and perfectly cooked. We also had Caesar salads (good, but missing the anchovies) and french onion soup. For dessert my husband had the profiteroles and I had the creme brulee. We were with a... More

Katie our hostess was fabulous seating us, offering suggestions, and checking in on us for our visit. Steve at the bar served up some memorable cocktails and treated us to some special après-dinner aperitifs. Lucius served up item after item that was more delicious than the previous. We chose to order a couple handfuls of 'a-la-carte' small plates, and what... More

We had friends in town and wanted to have a lovely evening on an Aspen patio with delicious food. Both were had at Rustique. I savored every bite of my Halibut entree.

Wife was under the weather so I went to an old favorite Rustique Bistro. Ate by bar had some often eat Calamari I can remember no tentacles! The salmon tartare was amazing with home made chips as a bonus! The hot homemade bread in a bag was special! Will be back with my wife soon!

I have never been disappointed with Rustique. The food from top to bottom is fantastic. We always make reservations and by the end of the day double the amount of people coming - they always accommodate us! It is rare you can sit down with 10 people and every single person raves about the food they ordered. The atmosphere is... More

This place is great! The real deal! The pate is better than I had in France. Great, friendly staff. Nice wine variety. French onion soup is so rich.
