However, even with a reservation, our experience started with our server telling us he was very busy and will TRY to get to us as soon as possible.

From the French onion soup to the short ribs everything was delicious. The wine list is exceptional. If you are in Aspen eat at Rustique Bistro you won't be disappointed.

We had made a reservation through the website about a month in advance. The restaurant called a few days ahead to confirm. The service was great with friendly, knowledgeable waiters. The food was very good, at our table we had steak, duck, calves liver and a pork loin special, everyone was happy.

We ate here on Saturday night and the aspect that sticks out the most is how rushed the dining experience was. It honestly over-shadowed the entire dinner. It puzzles me why they rushed the dinner - I noticed that it was not just our party but it impacted all the tables around us. In terms of the food -- that... More

Our family was greatly looking forward to returning to one of our favorite restaurants in Aspen, Rustique. We were a table of five and each of us ordered different appetizers and entrées off of the prix fixed menu. For the most part, the flavors and textures were a real disappointment. With regard to appetizers: my husband's Caesar salad was missing... More

I am a chef working for my company in Aspen this week and I was at Rustique last Monday night for their half price menu. I ordered the foie gras which is normally priced at $26. My portion was so small that I finished it in two bites. That is not very good value for money at $13. Give Rustique... More
