We three girlfriends enjoyed a delicious and very fresh lunch of blackened salmon wrap accompanied by a spring mix salad. Our waitress ,Venus , was very friendly, charming, accommodating, and efficient! She even took our photo at the table. We agreed that this dining experience and the surrounding ambiance was the perfect celebration for one of our milestone birthdays. We... More

We were driving through and looking for a nice place for food and little wine. This place delivered. Nice people. They took care of our little daughter and were nice when we requested to sit outside because of a sleeping kid in the car that we could keep an eye on. Food was good and so was service. Enjoy.

Gaspar's is definitely one of the best restaurants in downtown New London. The food is very good. The couple things holding this place back from five stars are the limited menu and the mediocre service. In their defense, they definitely seem to be working on improving the service, and have mastered what is on their small menu. I would return... More

The blackened shrimp bisque was phenomenal & that's an understatement. I also ordered the lobster quesadillas. Couldn't stop eating. The service was awesome especially Lisa at the bar. At last, a restaurant that also understands its wine by the glass should be as good in quality as its food (as in the pinot gris for those of us who know... More

My husband asked the hotel receptionist, "if you only had one day left to live where would you go to dinner" - she made a great choice sending us to Gaspars! I had tuna that had literally just come off the boat and it was absolutely fabulous. Creative chef, very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere. My husband loves calamari and had... More

My ladies group met here for dinner on a Tuesday night. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we would get a free bottle of house wine with every two entrees ordered on Monday through Wednesday nights. The prices are reasonable and the food was delicious. I ordered a grilled shrimp dish with risotto that was delicious. Some of the... More

Well, my wife and I read some decent reviews prior to our visit and were looking forward to a good meal. As we were seated we noticed a fresh mouse poop on our table. There were clean linens on the table and we were very surprised. Unfortunately we had lost our appetite and left promptly.

Service was not good. Four of us - and the service was quite slow, but then they brought one person's food much later than the others. One of us ordered a second glass of wine to be brought with the meal, and had to ask four times to get it. We told them we were in a bit of a... More

Had a lovely meal on the patio last week. We each had a special - the tenderloin in gorgonzola cream sauce was out of this world (my choice) and the seafood stew brimmed with lobster and many other goodies. Portions are generous, the service was excellent. We'll definitely be back!

My biggest gripe with this place is the menu. It's just not balanced. The appetizer offerings are limited and there are many items repeated. Lobster twice, salmon twice, risotto few times and also with the special. That being said, the food we did order came out hot, fresh, and other than lacking in salt(- (Just keep salt on the table!!!!)... More
