“wonderful is the best word to describe it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

I'm not sure what it was; the atmosphere, the service, the food, but the whole dining experience was one of the best I have had. Simply, in every sense of the word, wonderful. Everything was subtly perfect, attentive but not intrusive, interesting but not too eclectic ("a new take on a traditional New England favorite" were words not used, thankfully) menu. We were there for dinner and couldn't have been happier. There was no attempt to "wow you", but just really good food, a complete and tasty wine list, and a generally great experience all around. I would highly recommend it.

Great addition to Old Saybrook! Food is fresh, drinks are trendy and the menu changes with the season. Staff is knowledgable and accommodating! A must if you are in the area!

“Very Nice Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Food was fresh and tasty. The house salad was one of the best I've had in a long time. The entrees were well prepared and attractively presented. The menu has familiar dishes with just the right twist to make them unique. Service was attentive. Would like to go back for dinner

“Shop and then have a delicious lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

This place is great for the shoppers. The restaurant is housed in the one of the buildings of the Saybrook Country Barn at the foot of Main Street in Old Saybrook, a fun shopping place for furniture, accessories and seasonal decorations. Right outside the restaurant is a very nice ladies clothing store in the same building. There are stores up and down Main Street within walking distance. Aspen has an varied menu and the restaurant is nicely appointed. Have been there for lunch many times and haven't been disappointed yet. Great salads, flatbreads, fish and chips, hamburgers, among other choices. Open for lunch and dinner.
