We had two very good meals in this restaurant. One time we went for lunch. My wife had a reuben sandwich which she said was delicious. I had a cheeseburger which was also very good. Then one evening, we had a spicy calamari appetizer as an appetizer which was quite good. My wife enjoyed a piece of salmon and I... More

Really good attentive service and a nice menu selection. There were 4 of us. Two perfectly prepared burgers, 1 order of Stonington scallops and nicely adorned pork chops. Will definitely be going back.

I look two colleagues here for lunch based on my past visits. We were driving to a meeting in Boston and needed a nice restaurant en route. The menu and service were as lovely as I remembered. They were impressed by the choices and flavors and could not stop talking about it. Cannot wait to return.

We had a delicious meal to celebrate my 40th birthday. The appetizers were wonderful (beet salad and zucchini tempura), as were the main dishes (salmon and vegetarian pasta). Our server was very welcoming and the dining room is beautiful. We can't wait to return!

We had dinner here on a Thursday night, hopeful because the menu online looked so interesting and the reviews seemed good. It was, however, disappointing. Our waiter didn't make us feel taken care of; for example he never checked back to see if we wanted more wine. I tried the wild boar ragout; I didn't enjoy it, but if that... More

I keep going back to Aspen because of the service, food and atsmosphere! My last visit was for my daughter 21st birthday party. Having dined at Aspen several times before, I found it to be intimate enough for our party of 12 and big enough for us to celebrate. The drink menu (a variety of great martinis) set the tone...

ate there on a Saturday night- restaurant was full when we arrived at 8:15 - people eat earlier than in NYC- service was very quick- maybe a little too quick for a leisurely Saturday night-- food was very good with a nice choice

On Sunday, August 7th, my husband and I had dinner at Aspen. The restaurant is upscale, but not snooty. We were seated by the window and had a nice view. Our server was excellent! She didn't rush our order and allowed us the time to talk and enjoy our rare dining experience as we had requested. We both ordered salads... More
