The food here was delicious. A little pricey for what it was though. The service seemed generally pretty disorganized, especially around checking in people and taking reservations. The division of labor wasn't clear and it seemed they struggled with the basic task of checking in people and taking them to their tables. Also a couple guys came who had thought... More

My family and I enjoyed our recent dinner at Rustique. The restaurant has a very homey feel which was great as we brought our one year old daughter (and saw several other kids there as well). Our server was jovial and ontop of his game, and I had some of the best octopus I have ever had. The chicken entree... More

This place was a great find. The food, service, and people where all great. This inside was very nice, and homey. The bar was fun to sit and have a pre-dinner drink. Food was also very tasty.

The food was very dissapointing. My husband ordered the shrimp with risotto, he did not expect to have this dish smothered in a red sauce . Why bother to make risotto if you cannot taste it. Plus the cost, $40.00 for 5 shrimp is high even by Aspen standards. I ordered the Calves Liver, usually one of my favorite dishes... More

Cute place that focuses mainly on French-inspired cuisine. Nice atmosphere and very good service from hostess, waiters and sommelier. The food though is at best fair. Nothing was overly inspirational, and some of the items, such as the french fries served with the flat-iron steak, were not hot and actually a bit soggy. A couple of my party had the... More

This is a great place to stop by the bar or sit down with family and friends to have a delicious French dinner. We tried a good selection from the kitchen, onion soup, soufflé, the glazed pork chop, but personally the ribeye "special" was phenomenal. Two-thumbs up.

After a long work day, Rustique gave me everything and more I wanted and needed. I choose to go with 3 small plates: the frog legs, escargot, and cheese soufflé. Thinking outside the normal dining box of your tropical salad and piece of meat, I was overly satisfied. Sam,my server was kind and attentive. Val, the hostess and I believe... More
