Descending under 'seemingly falling' leaves ensconced in glass, to the lower level is the 50-seat Amber Lounge, an intimate setting featuring a curved mahogany bar, a large organic stone fireplace and textured walls softly lit with slender alabaster panels. The Amber Lounge is a fabulous venue to host special events.

It was our anniversary and they seated us in a cosy corner table. We started with fried oysters and a grilled hearts of Romaine salad. For entrees my wife ordered the Stonington scallops and I had Lobster Bolognese, both were mouth watering. So good.......... Can't wait to go back!

We went on Christmas Eve. I wasn't sure what food or service would be like on a holiday but both were excellent. It was a great experience!

We had such a nice evening on Christmas Eve 2016 that we decided to go to Aspen again this year (2017) and we were not disappointed. Menu includes something for everyone.

Aspen is reliably good. All three of us enjoyed our dinners very much. The gluten-free dishes noted on the menu make Aspen a very good place for those who, through choice or necessity, want to avoid gluten. We ordered a dessert for the table that was just ok--the gluten-free options are not noted or as plentiful as the main menu. However, we will continue to frequent Aspen for its other excellent offerings.

Service was terrible! We had a reservation. Sat for 15 minutes before anyone even came to take our drink order. Waiter said that we weren’t his table. Never got better. Was 35th wedding anniversary.
