Good quality food in a pleasant atmosphere with good service. Selections are a little pricey. One of the better upscale restaurants in Old Saybrook

We had the most perfectly cooked scallops with wonderful couscous that makes my mouth water as I write. The staff was delightful and I can't think of a better way we could have spent our Anniversary lunch while visiting New England. If you go to Old Saybrook Aspen Restaurant is worth a visit.

Lovely setting, really nice staff, wonderful food. Went at the last minute on a Saturday evening and it turned out to be a great choice. Can't wait to go back.

Went to Aspen for a late lunch with a friend on a Saturday afternoon. I had the lobster salad sandwich without the roll and a side of salad greens. The lobster salad was exquisite with very little mayonnaise and just the right amount of seasonings. My friend had the fish and chips that looked equally as good.

We've been dining here for a couple of years & we're never disappointed. The menu changes with the seasons, the food is Farm to Table. Wine list is good, & we get to try wines normally out of our budget on Weds when all bottles are 50% off!

By big city standards just a nice place to eat. Ambience a little cold. Easy parking and plentiful parking. Market salad very good, delicious. Shrimp, fig flatbread just okay. Chicken panini good. Service good.

I was part of a party of six. We ordered several small plates, big plates and desserts. Everything, and i mean everything, was delicious. Well presented, and a reasonable portion. I am not a fan of huge portions that you must take home part of. All six of us scored the restaurant "a home run."

A group of six close friends, looking for good food and conversation, came here for the first time on one's recommendation. Well, weren't we just pleased with her choice. Very nice atmosphere, simple and tasteful, very pleasant wait staff, and more. We took our time chatting and enjoyed every morsel, beginning to end. A couple of beef and mushroom bruschetta... More

We are not very adventurous people and decided to give a shot. The value for your portion is very good and the food is absolutely worth the price. Though, I wish there was more of a menu variety, the desserts are TO DIE FOR. I could eat the brulee for days and still want more. Service is excellent and we... More
