We were looking for a nice place to have lunch in Merrillville. The weather was a little muggy so were hoping we could find a place where we could sit down to cool off and if the place was not too expensive that would be a bonus. When I came across this place on trip advisor and open table, the... read more

Not for us! We received a gift certificate for Asparagus from friends who enjoy dining here. I had heard so many great things about the restaurant from others and read about it in the local newspaper, my wife and I were quite eager to go. Once I opened the menu, I knew we were in the wrong place for our... More

Had a great dinner at Asparagus last night. Pulled the name off of Tripadvisor due to recommendations and our fellow diners were spot on. Green mango salad and calamari tempura for starters. The food was fresh and artfully presented. The portions were large enough to have been a small dinner. Entrees included sea bass and lemongrass shrimp and scallops. Again... More

I have been to Merrillville on business three times this year and Aspargus was recommended on our first trip. We made a point of going back two more times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. The wait staff are very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed the saffron grouper twice and a stir fry dish on another... More

Romantic and cozy atmosphere. Coconut Soup with tofu rocks! Selections for any taste, full bar including wine list, attentive staff, worth the drive.

Having gone here before, we decided to return, particularly since we knew they advertised live jazz on the 3rd Saturday of the month. We called almost a week in advance and had a detailed conversation about our reservation (i.e., live music? what time starts? who is playing? can get a reservation in the bar area? time?) We specifically requested a... More
