Simply GreatAsparagus has an extensive and eclectic menu that ensures you'll find something you'd like to try. Every entree we've had has been excellent. The decor is elegant and inviting. I highly recommend this establishment.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMa hitWe've been to this restaurant multiple times now and have never been disappointed. The back room however, is noisier and less cozy, than the other other rooms. The dessert was delicious but skimpy on portion for the cost. My 11 & 13 year old daughters love it. Leftovers are always a treat. When we went on Mothers day, which was my daughter's birthday celebration, we had indicated that when making poo it reservations. They did not acknowledge the birthday at all.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGo ToI always know what to expect at Asparagus. We went there the day before Mother's Day to avoid the crowds and as usual the food and service were excellent. It's our go-to place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfine DiningLOVE this restaurant. Food always wonderful and service great. Martini's best in area...
would recommend this restaurant to anybody, one of my favorites.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy and deliciousWe went for Sunday supper to treat my mother for Mother's Day. Quiet, tastefully decorated restaurant that is bright with a simple elegance. Extensive menu has wide variety of Thai, Vietnamese, French-influenced dishes covering all courses from appetizer to dessert. Appetizers and entrees were good-sized - enough to be filling, or to order and share. Everything we ordered was delightfully unique and absolutely delicious. There are definitely some "safe" dishes and some "adventurous" ones. Even dessert had a unique Asian flavor to some classics. Wonderful! Relaxing! Attentive service.

What a spectacular find to have a first-rate restaurant in Merrillville. The food was exceptional -- cooked to perfection with subtle variations between each course. For appetizers the spring rolls with crab were fresh and crisp. The calamari rings were firm yet not rubbery. Dipping sauces are spicy but not excessively so. Entrees are generous, tasty and cooked to perfection. Most deserts can be shared. Nice wine and drink list. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. In total it was a great dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took friends for theirWe took friends for their anniversary. Our waitress was highly informative & helpful.
All 4 meals were fantastic. This was our 3rd visit to Asparagus ... and will not be the last!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAsparagus is a place thatAsparagus is a place that everyone needs to try. I have been there numerous times but this last dinner was with friends that had never been there and they could not say enough good things about the food. The unique spices and wonderful tastes will keep you coming back. My absolute favorite is the Cashew Pineapple Chicken dish. My husband's favorite is the Lamb, it melts off the bone.
A must try! Our server Joe was very attentive and a delight!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good service. My partyVery good service. My party and I sampled a number of the specialty rolls which were very good. Food was nicely presented. A nice, upscale restaurant in a geographical area that does not have very many.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHeels & Highballs ReviewThe Heels and High Balls group met to review Asparagus and loved it.
What we loved:
The server was very friendly and helped to navigate the menu so everyone found options they enjoyed.
Menu selections were full of flavor and in filling portions. Each was well plated for a neat and clean presentation.
Glasses remained full as table service remained attentive in the warm and inviting ambiance of the bar area and small group dinning room.
What we didn't like:
The menu was overflowing with options to the point of becoming overwhelming.
Very high drink prices made more than one out of the question.
The group found Asparagus very enjoyable. We can see this as a go to spot for a nice date night away from the kids.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and as always the service was fantastic. The waiters really know the menu well and make great suggestions. On a normal day its nice and quiet there but on every other saturday there is live music which I like but some people may want to make note of and come a different day.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants in north west Indiana - order anything and you will probably love it!
