Gaspar's is a small cozy restaurant on New London's Bank street. Serving high quality food at fair prices for lunch and dinner, join us for our sunday Brunch.At Gaspar's, we serve only the best meats, whether you're looking for a NY strip or a suculant Ribeye it's always USDA "Prime." Each one of our steaks has been hand picked to be the best. If you're looking for fresh seafood, you've found the right place. Being so close to the water has more than one advatage, among these are the fresh locally caught seafood, like our Stonington Sea Scallops. We support the "Farm to Table" movement not only in vegetables but also the seafood we offer. We have a wide selection of both beer and wine. Our top shelf liquor selection is second to none. We have 24 premium Tequilas on deck, our Scotch selection represents the regions of Scotland in 3 different ages, and Vodka drinkers we have what you're looking for. Come taste our signature drinks, then let our chefs take your tastebuds to a new level.

I just ordered from Gaspers for take out for the first time. I heard about their paleo menu so I check them out online. The Web site was nice and easy to navigate to the different menus. I choose the pale spinach salad with a maple balsamic dressing and I added chicken to it. The chicken was moist and seasoned... More

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary at Gaspers in New London, CT. It is our"go to" restaurant for special occasions, and again,it did not disappoint. Our food was excellent and our waiter was attentive. He noticed that my husband's steak was just a tiny bit overdone, not even worth complaining about. At the end our our meal, he... More

We arrived on a Saturday without a reservation. While there was an "event" in process in the bar area, we were seated without hesitation. Our server was, relatively, prompt with our drink order and taking our dinner order. We skipped the appetizers; and we waited quite a bit for our entrees. I ordered scallops. The were prepared to perfection and... More

Went for lunch this past Sunday and found out they were only serving a $20/plate Sunday Brunch that included a cocktail, an entree and a buffet (arrived too late for that). Everyone's meal was great. Service was equally great - friendly server. I'd go back!

Having eaten at Gaspar's dozens of times, I felt it was time for a review. The short review: Great food, excellent service, creative menu, clean and comfortable atmosphere. The longer version: Lisa is my favorite bartender and server of all time. She is attentive, knowledgeable, and a joy to be around. The menu is always changing, and the specials board... More

I have only ever been here for drinks and snacks but have been more than satisfied with the quality of both. Prices are extremely reasonable, and the appetizers are tasty and artistically presented. Particularly yummy are their occasional sushi offerings.

We had the good fortune to stumble on Gaspar's on our way to Groton. This was well worth a side trip. The food was great and the white linen table cloths and napkins were outstanding. When they played Edith Piaf I just melted. Go and enjoy !!

Wow - our friends introduced us to this easy-to-get-to restaurant right on Bank Street...they enjoy eating out often and are particular about quality and atmosphere. They raved about Gaspar's and wow were they right. Everything from the drinks to the dishes had some unique aspect or ingredient that made them stand out. My espresso martini was dynamite and my wife's... More
