Diner Reviews
  • "I had been to ASC for dinner and after-work outings, finding the ambiance nice and food interesting. I had a midtown breakfast meeting and decided to have it at ASC - big mistake. Despite OpenTable allowing me to make a reservation, the restaurant was not operational when we arrived, and they did not know about OpenTable's existence. Breakfast amounted to a standard hotel buffet of slightly warmed-over pancakes, scrambled eggs, and stale pastries. I should have been more thorough in checking the menu listing considering the restaurant is connected to a hotel. The last insult was that the crew was vacuuming and washing down the floors with bleach during our entire one-hour stay - noisy and smelly."

  • "I was surprised when we arrived at the minimalist but pleasant decor with an Aspen theme (antlers on the ceiling, bleached white trees behind glass for walls, a video fireplace, plain wood tables, and a wood floor). But, the service was professional, and the food was very nice. The menu is limited so we had the Sirloin steak which is frequently very tough. Here, the sirloin dish we ordered was presented with the steak SLICED. it was seasoned and tasty. and it wasn't a challenge to eat. Unfortunately, the fries that came with it were soggy."

  • "Met up with four friends for a quick bite to eat. I recommended this place because I often go for lunch and the location is great. Although the lunch service may be a little slow, the food is delish, the ambiance unique, and usually worth it. However, I think they had one waitress for the entire room and she struggled to provide adequate service. It was a Friday night- they should have had another wait staff person working! Although the food was delish- the steak taco's are divine!- the service was not. We were there for over two and a half hours- definitely not the quick bite we were looking for."

  • "I was expecting something much different than what I received. The food was average at best and they did not know the first thing about cocktails. How do you butcher an Old Fashioned???!!! I will not return. It was not a bad dining experience it just was not up to par. This is NYC, you have to be A+ all the time."

  • "Aspen social has great food in a unique atmosphere. Stand out dishes are the macaroni and cheese, steak tacos, and the lasagna is to die for. We were there with a party of four and everyone enjoyed it. Waitress was lovely. My only small negative remark is the dessert menu was quite limited. Only three items and no chocolate. We took a 15 minute walk to Serendipity III because for my party skipping dessert just will not suffice. Overall gorgeous décor, service, ambience, classic food prepared right, we will come back. "

  • "We had dinner here, prior to an evening performance on Broadway. The service was friendly and good, albeit a bit slow at times... especially considering there weren't many guests at the time, as we dined at 5:30 PM. The decor was intriguing, made to suggest a hunting lodge out west. The specialty cocktails were delicious, and the food was great. We were out in plenty of time for our show. We'd go back again, and recommend it to other theater-goers."

  • "We were going to see a show so I thought this would be a cool place to stop in for dinner. For being 1 of 5 tables in the restaurant on a Friday evening I expected more of an "experience". We ordered two cocktails and the pork tostados to start. We finished the tostados (they were tasty, but very, very tough) several minutes before we received our cocktails. Our entrees arrived- good, but not great. My trout had some bones left in it...eek! Of course, our server wouldn't know because he never asked us how our food was, nor if we would care for another cocktail... and dessert, that wasn't even a thought either. The only question we were asked, "Are you finished, sir?". "

  • "We arrived for dinner at 5:30 for a 7pm curtain and had a nice simpler all. Terrific service. Bar was very loud and everyone looked to be having fun when we left. Guacamole was very good and burgers were also prepared correctly and tasty. "

  • "The restaurant was mostly empty yet the food took a very long time. Our service was way below par, although the food was good it took about 40 minutes just to get tortilla chips, which was our appetizer. "

  • "We were there for sunday brunch before a theatre matinee and the place was pretty empty-- but all there were taking advantage of the $25 brunch including all you can drink mimosa or bloody marys-- all very tasty! My burger was too well done but accompanied by a lovely salad and my husband's BLT and fries were fine. It's a handy place to know about if you're in the area and like interesting interiors!."

  • "We were staying at the hotel and gave this a try for dinner. Bartenders are cheery and helpful. We were one of the few there for dinner on a weeknight, and though the server was friendly enough our meals took forever to arrive (we waited over 45 minutes for the entrees, and the place was practically empty!) Went back the next night only for drinks - a nice atmosphere, and our drinks came readily (a bit pricey, but it's NYC). Not sure I'd go for dinner again, particularly with that kind of wait..."

  • "Our group had theatre tickets and we looked for a place nearby for lunch. The staff was very accommodating with our changing needs (more people added to the reservation, time change). The menu had something for everyone in our group. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. We would definitely return and recommend to others. "

  • "Overall the food was just okay. The hamburgers are notable; they are thick and juicy… But, the bar scene is loud. I thought we could have an early dinner and then go off to see a play, but the bar was just too noisy for us to talk. Not memorable for food--just okay. "

  • "I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this place. I'm not sure how it is on weekends or evenings, but for lunch on a Wednesday, it was great! Our waiter was outstanding. The ambiance really takes you out of the city and makes you feel like you're in a ski lodge. A very snazzy ski lodge that is. All the seating areas are really cozy and have a fun vibe. There was three of us and we started off with a drink (drinks were good, but a tad pricey) and the guac which was really tasty. We all had lunch and enjoyed it, we will be back again!"

  • "Although lunch meanu is very limited, my salmon/barley/asparagus dish was yummy - no complaints. Portion sizes are on a small side (healthy side) - you will not br bringing leftovers home as there will be none left. The bread pudding was quite good -but very small (3 bites max) - and I like my desert bigger (since I consider them once in a blue moon treats). Cool, unique decor. Bathrooms are located in the hotel lobby - that's a minus."

  • "We went V-day weekend. the lighing wis beautiful. Reviews raved about the fondu and it was great!. My fiance ordered a burger medium rare. It was well done and very dry. I ordered the skirt stake and same think. The places was dead and our waiter was never to be found."

  • "Great deal! Only $25 for a decent entree and unlimited mimosas or bloody mary's for two hours. Lively, but not rowdy. Very cool interior. Also a lounge at night. Make reservations ahead of time!"

  • "We went to aspen social club for brunch on Sunday 3/2 for my mothers birthday. We were a group of 4. They give you a 2 hour limit but the mimosas kept coming during that 2 hr time frame. The food was very good. Service was excellent very nice and attentive. We were also given birthday shots on the house :) I would definitely recommend ASC for brunch to Friends."

  • "Food was cold and pretty bland. Nothing special. The only thing that kept us from leaving was the unlimited mimosas. They were always on top of refilling our table carafe. You can find a better deal -- with better quality food -- elswhere."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "For $25 you can pick an entree and get unlimited mimosas or bloody Mary's at brunch (2 hour limit). We whiled away a good 2 hours with good food and jugs of mimosas which were very forthcoming. Food is good, not out of this world but very tasty. Wait staff polite and attentive. Would def return."

  • "I do not recommend this restaurant. My pomegranate cosmopolitan tasted like Robitussin. The salmon tartare clearly was not fresh--- so there was the compensation of tons of guacamole and seasoning on the fish. Then, a just Ok, completely ordinary Caesar salad, like what I can get at the grocery salad bar. I took a friend out to dinner, and I was disappointed. Even the ambience was hokey. The idea of "Aspen" does not mesh with my experience at this place. The rainbow lights and mirrored night club feel just made dinner feel hectic and weird. Plan ahead and make a reservation at a better restaurant nearby!!"

  • "The decor is the best - great design, no kitch. We went on a Sunday and they ONLY had brunch, which was good. I wanted a regular menu but it was the $25 Prix Fixe or nothing, which was a disappointment. The food was quite good (I got an omelette, hard to mess that up...), however, everything else was GREAT!"

  • "We came early and restaurant was pretty quiet. Server was not very attentive. Took 5 minutes just to come by and ask for drink order. We ordered only soft drinks and it took another 5 minutes. Food came out pretty fast as was good. Took some time to get server's attention to ask for check. There were only 2 other tables in entire area."

  • "Great to grab a quick bite and/or cocktail after the theater. Great decor, drinks were good, food was good. Not a life changing dining experience but the location and moderate pricing in midtown/ time square cannot be beat. You won't be disappointed. If going out as a couple, you might want to leave before they turn into a nightclub at 11pm, as it becomes extremely loud and nearly impossible to carry a conversation over the PA system and wave of 20-something's. I would come back, but I'd also leave at 10:45 = )"

They sat us even though the group was incomplete, which I really appreciated since it was snowing and cold outside. I will return another night for dinner because if did see something's on the menu that I would like to try."

  • "Hard to really say if I would recommend it. The place itself is a visual feast. The food was great. HOWEVER - one dinner was not served until we were all done. On waiter cleared some napkins before we were done, they took our desserts plates before we were served and did not understand when we asked them to leave them. We ordered two sides that did not get delivered and they overcooked the hanger steak. When we asked for refills or to order additional food, they were really slow. Tables were not half full. Not busy enough for a decent excuse. We did not bother to say anything but the waiter brought out a s'mores dessert for the table as an effort to smooth things over. It was tasteless."

The wait staff was very attentive and we all enjoyed our meal. It is a really nice spot in the midst of Times Square, I hope it is more crowded during the week. I would definitely go back!"

  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and have always loved it. (Actually, the menu has changed somewhat and I miss some of those appetizers…) This time the service was terrible. I was embarrassed as I raved about this place to the friend I brought with me. The food was okay - not as good as before, but okay. All in all, I'm not sure I'd recommend this restaurant to a friend."
