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.

Captain Scott across the street would of been a better choice for the lobster bisque both on price and quality. Letting them know about the temperature of my bisque was probably a bad idea.

To start our food adventure, we truly enjoyed a calamari appetizer and a chicken appetizer. Then on to oysters on a half shell. They were fresh and meaty. The menu is full of creative cuisine. Beef, chicken, pasta, seafood and a surprise item, sushi rolls. We decided to have 3 different sushi rolls. One more delectable than the next. We... More

We're locals who eat at Gaspar's about once a month, mostly for the interesting variations and food combinations usually on offer. For example, last night the crab cakes came with a little squeeze plunger to inject lemon sauce into the cakes. Several tried-and-true offerings are delicious: Braised short ribs; spinach & bacon salad with gorgonzola. Service is usually adequate, though... More

Delicious food, great service from Shaun and the ambience was vibrant. We're from Manhattan so we know a good place when we find one.

Customer Service is Fantastic (Giovanni) yet I have only had an excellent dining experience 50% of the time. Tonight escargot as an app which would have been perfect except for the Palm full of salt in the dish. I will keep trying... New to the area.

Excellent dinner! We are visiting and looked up restaurants in New London. Came very close to picking a place on the water but the reviews for Gaspar's were so good, and the menu looked so interesting, that we decided to try it. WOW - we are so glad we came.
