We were two couples on a last minute Friday night visit to New London, Ct , and looking for a good meal. We did some searching and happened upon Gaspars right on a Bank Street. The cosy place was not crowded on this Friday evening which often makes one wonder why not. We went on in and and were seated... More

My mother and I went to Gaspar's for dinner and we were blown away!! We had been there once before for drinks but this time we got food as well and I cannot express in words how impressed we were! First of all, we ordered the Key Lime martini; I've had this drink at other restaurants several times but this... More

My partner and I just enjoyed a nice relaxing evening at Gaspar's in New London on Bank Street. The owner had the adorable chef bring out a nice cup of lobster bisque prior to our entree. Could not have been more lobster in there. Then our amazing entree of braised short ribs came out. The presentation alone was impressive. My... More

First off this place has an excellent staff who are attentive and friendly. I cant eat shellfish and am not a big fish person in general which limits me on the menu but every time I get a steak or the rack of lamb i forget my days problems. They have a great selection of drinks and a wonderful bar... More

We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner with 24 guests at Gaspar's under the direction of their new chef, Eric. Kudos, chef!! The entrees were uniformly excellent, the dessert was superb, and the service by Lisa and the other wait staff were friendly, informative, and highly professional. We highly recommend Gaspar's to anyone looking for an inventive, fresh menu at a... More

Gaspers was chosen to have a small birthday celebration! Our blackened salmon sandwich with salad was out of this world! Our wonderful waitress, Venus, catered to all our special needs such as presenting the BD cake and taking photos for us! Looking forward to going back to Gaspers

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
