My wife's salmon was cooked to perfection. My Korean Noodle Bowl was outstanding. Nice ambience and attentive service. Prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

At the Saybrook Counrty Barn, we went to Aspen for lunch. Five adults and a baby. The staff was attentive and very nice. We arrived rightvat opening and after ordering the service was a bit slow. We shared apps, a salad and the pork dumplings. Both were good but the dumplings were not as spicy as anticipated. Three of us... More

I was looking for a new restaurant that had something special to offer, and I found it! Aspen is the best new restaurant I've been to in years... Went for lunch, and could not have been happier. I had the butternut squash bisque (best I've ever had) and a curried chicken kebob with coconut rice. Absolutely fresh and very flavorful.... More

The service was great, the truffle fries were awesome and the hangar steak was nicely done. I would not suggest the green pasta dish.

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
