Service and food was excellent....................
Cozy atmosphere, a bit noisy but it was a full house. The service was outstanding the food, Osso Buco and Scallops was not only perfectly cooked and delicious, it was presented beautifully. The appetizer was a flat bread with duck confit and beacon jam among other ingredients, was out of this world in both presentation and flavor.
Very reasonably priced for the spectacular food and service.
Overall experience was average. Somewhat disappointing because Aspen was recommended to us - very strongly - as an outstanding restaurant. I will be hesitant to recommend Aspen to a friend. If I do, it is with reticence and let him/her ultimately decide for themselves.
We have consistently excellent experiences at Aspen - it's our go-to spot for family celebrations. Comfortable atmosphere, fantastic waitstaff, and fabulous food!
Eaten at Aspen many times snd have never been disappointed…great food, great service!
Great service. Food was very good too. Nice, enjoyable night for our family.
The service was attentive. The food and attention to detail was magnificent. The atmosphere and energy of the restaurants was celebratory.
Loud and felt a bit rushed.
Fantastic food and service. An excellent place to visit for a celebration!
Food was delicious, staff was friendly and the service was overall very good no complaints! Will go back
We enjoyed NYE dining at the Aspen. I loved the lobster bisque with chunks of lobster & a hint of sherry. The short ribs were fork tender! Hubby also devoured his salmon and Junior’s cheesecake dessert. My only advice would be to add some background music and maybe space tables a bit further apart because the high ceilings make the noise level a bit much.
First class all the way - food - sevice - atmosphere - no noise issues - clean - great selection - selection- professional staff - 5 stars !!
Wonderful food, service and ambiance! An excellent spot to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The clam chowder, the shrimp dumplings, veal osso bucco, and lobster bolognese were standouts. The sticky toffee pudding is a must have. An excellent meal all around. We will be back again!
Superb, extremely helpful service, although a bit overtaxed that night. Imaginative menu with all courses very well prepared.
A new restaurant find for us in Old Saybrook. Lively atmosphere with great food and service (Kate our server was as wonderful).
We definitely will be back.
Always such a wonderful meal and service at Aspen. The staff made our Christmas Eve very special.
Perfect for Christmas Eve. Regular menus which I favor. Christine was so pleasant and cheerful. Food and service consistently good. Love the bread pudding desert.
The service was especially well done the food was terrific and I felt like a very intimate environment.
Excellent service and food!! Caitlin was a great server- provided great service throughout the meal!
Wonderful celebration. Food was delicious as always. We had the tuna, and the octopus appetizers. Stonington scallops with lobster on sticky rice was delicious. Husband loved his salmon entree. Wine was properly chilled. Joseph M. was a professional, polished server, as well as fun personality.
Aspen is consistently one of our favorite places to gather for family celebrations. The service and food are both fantastic! It's a social atmosphere without being loud - comfortable for at-table conversations. We're already planning to return next month.
The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The food looked good but lacked in flavor. Not sure if it’s because we got there later in the evening but it was just ok.
Seevice qas geeat as well as the food a bit on the pricey side but the level of the food makes it a decent value.
Great service and food
Wonderful, accommodating staff, nice atmosphere and excellent food. A very pleasant dining experience! will be back soon!
Our server was lovely, menu average, but not exciting. the canned music was so loud it ruined our lunch. decor left us cold. too bad.
Continues to be one of the best restaurants in the area.
Good food and service! One of our favorite restaurants!
Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Aspen is one of our favorite date night restaurants. The food and ambiance is always great.
As always, the food was delicious and the staff are awesome!
We had a wonderful lunch. Have been there many times. The good and service are wonderful!
Classy restaurant. Food is always good and prepared with style. Staff is very friendly
From the moment that we entered the restaurant to the time that we left (after 2-1/2 hours), the service was top notch. The host took great care in reserving a table by a window for our special dinner with friends. The waiter, Joe, was fun, engaging, and super attentive. The food was delicious, well presented, and the lighter portions left room for desserts and coffee. When the room is full, the sound is bit loud. But, it made for a festive environment.
My wife really enjoyed her steak and trimmings.
On the other hand, while the cut of my tuna was wonderful, the so-called wasabi was too cream, not tasteful and presented all over the plate. The potatoes and bok choy were unseasoned/plain to a fault and lacked any taste.
Additionally, the appetizer, chicken egg rolls were very good, but lacked a non-creamy soy-type alternative dipping sauce. The dessert was rich and delicious, but poorly presented and lacking in real whipped cream.
This is just my own opinion. I would come again, but ask for many modifications or completely change my order.
Date… With my wife of 48 years. About Joe, the waiter: Knowledgeable & PATIENT. He is going to CT waiter heaven.
Great tenderloin and osso bucco. Joe was great.
Restaurant was crowded and noisy. Food was excellent as always. Our waitress was very accommodating, knowledgeable about the food and very pleasant. Service was a little slow, probably due to the large Saturday night crowd. Overall I still give Aspen 5 stars due to the high quality of the food. Everyone in our group raved about their dishes.
