Asparagus is a dining experience! The menu is thorough. The food is extremely tasteful the vegetables and fish and meats are fresh. The shrimp eggrolls as appetizers were exquisite. If you were a curry fan please try the chicken pineapple curry. The best in the region!

The food was great and the service was excellent. The food may be a little pricy for a dinner portion, but I always end up taking some home. So, it is worth it. The tempura green beans and almond beef are a couple of my favorites.

My wife and I celebrated our 10yr anniversary here recently and we could not have been happier with the service we recieved! Our great friend Courtney works here, she took extra special care of us for our special occasion! We wouldn't have wanted to celebrate our anni anywhere else! Special occasions, or just a bite, and drinks with friends, Asparagus never disappoints! Thnx again Courtney!

I always enjoy my dining experience at Asparagus. It's the perfect place for a business lunch or a quiet dinner with friends. The food is amazing and the servings are generous. My personal go-to is the Pineapple Shrimp Curry; perfect flavor and spice.

Always love coming to Asparagus! Food is great, atmosphere is great, and service is great! Only one disappointment this time...and not a biggie. I always order a ginger pear martini and this was the first time it did not come with the little slivers of ginger on top.

Always love eating at Asparagus! The food and atmosphere are wonderful. Unfortunately, service was extremely slow - it was Saturday evening and crowded, but no one should wait over 25 minutes for their first drink to be served at the table!

We have 3 children and it’s hard for us to get away. We made a reservation through the website for 6:30pm with bar seating preferred. Once we arrived at the restaurant we were shuffled off to the normal dinning area. I asked the hostess about our bar request and she indicated it was overlooked and we would have to wait for a table to open up. After about 45 minutes of waiting the hostess asked if we wanted to sit at the bar to continue our wait for a table. We figured this was a gesture to show gratitude for waiting. That was not the case. The bar was over worked and we were treated as the people who show up without a reservation and expect expedited seating. We waited until around 7:30pm at the bar and is I approached the hostess desk to request a manager Because of the wait, a server passing by said he would be with us in a few minutes. We were seated and it wasn’t for another half hour our drink, appetizer, food order were taken. It’s now after 8pm and we needed to leave to pick up our children. Once the food arrived we briefly ate and asked for boxes. Around 8:30 pm our tab came out around $130 with no price adjustments for inconveniences. The food has always been great but the service was terrible Saturday evening. Over the years we have dined here over a dozen times. This is our first issue and hope it’s the last. Please reach out and help us understand the failure we experienced. The industry is hard to manage but we would like a response. Thank you.

Asparagus delights every time! The pork shank is absolutely "to die for". The shrimp and scallops were delicious. Our daughter loved the pineapple curry. The tofu Satay was unremarkable. There was a couple of large groups so the dining room was a little loud.

The service was great as usual. We had an order of ribs which were absolutely delicious!! The other order was the lamb. Unfortunately not what we expected. The taste was good but they were unbelievably tough. We will definitely go back, but won't order the lamb.

We were a party of six. Seated in a back room with another very large, noisy, group. We had wanted to sit in the dining room area which had a better ambiance. Wallpaper was tearing off the wall in the back room. Just didn't look clean or well maintained. We were celebrating my mom's birthday and it was so loud we could hardly visit. There was cold air blowing out of the vents directly on our table (Nov). We asked to have the heat increased. They did for a few minutes and then the cold air started again. The older guests had their coats on the entire meal. And couldn't wait to leave because they were so cold. The food was delivered very quickly and was very good. However, our wait staff only came to check on use a few times over 2 hours. We needed to ask for drink refills and waited with empty glasses. Waited for a long time for the bill and then to have the card returned.

This restuarant was recommended and we were all very disappointed. Especially considering it was a Monday night.

Everything was wonderful. We try to go at least once a year. The serving sizes are huge but we like leftovers. I would recommend a small plate option.

Great food, the lemongrass beef appetizer was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Food came out quick for a busy Saturday evening. They corrected our order without hesitation when we questioned it; which also came back fast. Drinks were outstanding; I recomend the Hennessy martini. There was a jazz band playing in the bar area where we were sitting which was pretty awesome. Atmosphere is hard to beat, and the service was great. Can't wait to get back!
