The Amber Lounge is a fabulous venue to host special events.

I have been to the restaurant several times and have had a good meal with good service. Unfortunately this last experience was rather disappointing. Several minor things during the meal but the most annoying was when my dinner entrée was thrown out instead of boxed up to take home as I had requested. When I inquired about it I was made to feel as if I were somehow to blame. I seriously doubt whether we will be going back .

Very nice restaurant. Eclectic menu with good healthy choices in addition to some great out of the ordinary options . The lobster bolognese was delicious and a nice size portion. My husband had the pork chop and it was a good 1” chop with apples, fall vegetables and a mashed sweet potato.

Very good value here. We had a very nice lunch and the selections were all in the $15-20 range. Beautiful dining room. Property is close to a busy intersection , so the view from our table wasn't the best part of the experience. Servers were very helpful.

The food was excellent! The ambiance was similar to Liv's Oyster Bar and Fresh Salt, but it was extremely loud.

My husband and I went to Aspen on a Friday night before a show at the Kate. We shared the mussels to start, which were perfectly cooked and seasoned. I had the scallops, which were delicious. My husband had the filet, which he also thoroughly enjoyed. Excellent service and quality food.

Great food and service: however, the no-go for me was the crammed seating in the dining area which is also in the same room as the bar. Much too noisy to hear my wife on the other side of the table. We had to raise our voices in order to be heard. I will not return, which is unfortunate since everything else was very good.

We all thoroughly enjoyed Aspen. It's a beautiful restaurant and all of the food is delicious. Highly recommend to all....(I would consider our entire group of six critical diners and everyone was thrilled with Aspen!)
