we had a comical experience with our waitress/waiter/busser/manager. Too long to get into it. But our order couldn't have been more screwed up. LOUD

I've been going to Aspen for many years. Their food is always exceptional and we love the ambiance. The service has always been excellent and very friendly. I have an eight year old son and in his words....'Aspen has the best of everything! THIS PLACE ROCKS THE
WHOLE TOWN!!'

We eat here frequently - great local place with upscale interesting food and quiet surroundings. Nice for a couple or friends. Appetizer and entree portions nice size - we frequently share so that we can have room for the fries which are great. Staff very friendly. Nice for a place to get a drink as well. Good place for business or "ladies lunch".

We had heard mixed reviews regarding Aspen, so were not sure about it. However we went last night with colleagues and had a great meal. It was a Tuesday, so the place was empty, but that made the service excellent.
We split a couple appetizers, the crab cakes and calamari were very good. I tried the scallops, and with the bread brought to our table, did not need to order an additional side dish. The scallops were perfect, not overcooked, large and flavorful. It was a light and refreshing dish, the cucumbers were different but I enjoyed it. It was a nice change from the traditional heavy garlicy creamy scallop dish loaded with butter that is often served at local restaurants. Creme brulee was a perfect end.

I always know when I go to Aspen my meal will be good value and very flavorful. Everything they serve is so tasty, and creative. You can always try something new at Aspen.
