Had a great time there onHad a great time there on Mother's Day. Great food, relaxing meal, great service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Mother's Day findI waited for the last minute to make a reservation for Mother's Day (bad daughter) so my expectations were not high in finding a quiet spot with an assortment of plates for different tastes. I was delightfully surprised by our late lunch at Aspen Restaurant! Not only was the dining exquisite, but the pace was leisurely, the wait staff friendly and attentive, and the reservations were staggered so there was not an overwhelming crowd seating all at the same time.
There was a special menu for the holiday in addition to the regular menu which was also a welcome surprise.
We will be sure to make another trip to this delightful dining spot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReservation not readyAlthough we had made an 8 PM reservation, we were not seated until 8:20 PM.

Everything was superb especially the lobster bolognese. The only improvement I would have liked to see was an offer to refill my iced tea.

Always very good food and service, although expensive. On popular eat-out nights it can be noisy (Friday, Saturday..), especially with the bar right there next to the dining room, but on an off night (Sunday) it is pleasantly quiet.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice meal, excellentA very nice meal, excellent recommendations by our server made for a perfect evening with friends.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great lunch on a Sunday.Had a great lunch on a Sunday.
