The waiter we had only came back twice over the course of an hour and a half or so, he didn't seem to be very busy, we weren't in the bar and there were only two other tables that another waitress had. Not the best.
My favorite restaurant in North West Indiana. The food has so many flavors, cocktails are high-quality and very tasty. I recommend for anybody, just love this place.
Extensive menu with proteins to cover any persons needs. Excellent service and perfectly crafted cocktails. the appetizers are creative and beautifully presented. Every entrée was cooked to perfection and delicious. This is a wonderful restaurant.
I have been to Asparagus multiple times and they never disappoint. Even the pickiest of eater should find something they like on their extensive menu. Service is always very good as well.
Very elegant space with excellent food. Our server Samantha was great!
Unfortunately the drunken noodles were extremely salty and had to be sent back. I ordered the Hawaiian or pineapple fried rice with shrimp and it was OK. The shrimp crispy egg rolls were delicious.
Great food and drinks!
Food was fantastic and the drink choices very plentiful. Staff does a great job with recommendations and assisting with any food allergies
I have not been to Asparagus for months, but needed a meeting place for a client from Chicago. Asparagus worked out perfectly! Food was every bit as good as I remember, and the wait staff as attentive as ever. My go-to dish there is the red curry, and once again outstanding.
Excellent meal. Very fresh vegetables delicious!!!
Sam our waitress was amazing
Wonderful food! I highly recommend Asparagus. My only complaint was a child screaming. Not Asparagus fault; the little kid was just tired of being at dinner.
Delicious food, amazing service, great atmosphere. Perfect place for a date night or special occasion. Nutty Chicken was amazing, and really loved the cream cheese and crab rolls appetizer too.
This was my first time at Asparagus. We were celebrating my wifes birthday. The experience was great, food was great and the staff was awesome.
Our waiter was excellent and the food and service was very good. Looked like the bar area had much more ambience than the dining area. Was very cold but our waiter did get it turned down for us. A bit pricey for the region. It overall we had a nice dinner.
Food was great, staff super friendly! Very pricey though!
Never disappoints. Went during lunch and had lunch special. As always, was wonderful. The green bean appetizer was the best!
Excellent! Asparagus always delivers excellent food. The ambiance is great especially in the bar area. A hidden gem in bleak Merrillville.
Went out with family in a group of 6. Everyone ordered something different. The menu is extensive. The food was perfectly prepared and the service by Nick was great! All of us would recommend it in a heartbeat. The only slight disappointment was a couple of the cocktails were not exceptional but we would rate as just good.
You can always count on Asparagus for a wonderful meal with outstanding service.
I truly enjoyed my Birthday celebration and felt really good to be back in a normal setting in regards to the pandemic. Thank you
The food never disappoints and there is so many wonderful dishes to choose from.
Our first time visiting Asparagus and everything from the martinis, appetizers to dinner was fantastic!
Food was amazing, as always! Drinks are outrageously priced, so we will stick with water from now on and go elsewhere for cocktails!
Nice little gem in Northwest Indiana that is Vegan friendly. They can make almost anything on the menu Vegan. Great atmosphere and great food
Food was fantastic as usual. Waitress went out of her way to to make sure our experience was great
We've frequented this place's sister site Siam Marina in Tinley Park (even when it was located in Calumet City) and we've enjoyed the experience every time. Excellent food, atmosphere and service on each visit. The owner even comes out to check on customers on occasion... very pleasant. The only thing I would add to Asparagus is that I thought the setting was even cozier. All in all a good choice for dining.
Food was excellent. I will be back
Asparagus never disappoints. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
Outstanding service and great food as usual! Our favorite restaurant by far
Wonderful experience. Great service and great food and drinks.
The service, decorum, preparation and presentation of food was great. The building structure itself was impressive. My wife and I totally enjoyed the whole experience. Staff was attentive and courteous. There is also a private room for family or business events. We will definitely be going back again!
Service was a bit slow and there were a few things (took nearly 15 minutes for a server to come, no refills on drinks) that were a bit annoying but overall the device was acceptable. The food itself was amazing and would definitely go back.
We came for my husbands birthday and it was great as usual. The precautions they are taking to Social distance and keep things sanitary is great. 👍🏽
Everything was great! A must go if you’re in the area or even if you’re willing travel. It won’t disappoint.
The food was great! The drinks were just okay! We had crab and cream cheese spring roll, shrimp and celery wrapped in bacon spring rolls, Asian spareribs, pad tai and Asparagus fried rice. All was really yummy!!!
We used to visit Asparagus regularly, but sadly we will never go back. They refuse to list prices on their menu now, which is annoying. The waiter told us (with a snobby attitude) that the prices are based on "pick your protein" options - fine, but there aren't even base prices! I ordered lemon chicken, which was described as chicken with a lemon sauce and mushrooms. It was served as a soup, even though it was not supposed to be a soup. The mushrooms were too hard to bite into and had a bad flavor. It was so gross that I couldn't force myself to eat it. I sent it back and ordered Pad Thai instead, which was alright but did not taste authentic. I don't know what happened to Asparagus, but the staff is quite rude now and the food is just mediocre.
We ate in the bar area which I think has a better vibe than the main restaurant. This is one of the best Thai (mainly) based restaurants that I've ever had the pleasure to eat at. The menu is extensive and varied and I've never had a bad dish here. The mixture of flavors is exquisite and is always cooked perfectly. An additional plus is that the specialty cocktails are FANTASTIC! One of our favorite go-to restaurants, however, don't expect typical Thai food take out type of prices. I would consider this moderately expensive but if you are looking for a stellar meal and service, the price is worth it. Two thumbs up!
MANNNNNNNN THIS PLACE IS AMMMMMAAAZZZZZINNNNG! THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AS WELL!
Asparagus never fails to deliver. One of my favorites in NWI. The manager Kate is wonderful. She came and checked on our table. Matt our server was attentive without being overly so. Just right. The food was amazing and the Moscow Mule delicious. Thank you so much for a first nite out in months!
