    Excellent food (taste and plating) though our entrees took a little long to make their appearance. Phenomenal cocktails.

    Aster is the best place to eat in Midland. You can always count on a great dinner and great service. Our entire family loves Aster. We always go for the oysters and the awesome entree’s.

    I don’t write reviews but this was bad. My ribeye came cut fully open in half (as if the chef checked the temperature like at home), it was overcooked, no flavor, juices obviously running out, came with some fried baby potatoes, not patatas bravas like advertised, and was a bad cut of meat. And it was $40 which was absurd. We were so excited to try this “French fine dining” and my partner described his plate as a glorified rotisserie chicken instead of a coq au vin. The dining lighting was terrible, seat placement was strange, and it was just a very unenjoyable experience given how much they charge. We won’t be returning. Also, we did not order the burger but many around us did and the buns looked like they were freshly smushed from a Kroger grocery bag. I feel terrible leaving a review like this but it was truly a bad experience.

    The hostess was super helpful in getting our reservation changed from 630 to 700 to accommodate a meeting that went long (7 of us). It was super warm and humid in the restaurant, which made us all a bit uncomfortable. There weren't enough menus, so we shared, no big deal. The sound level was really, really loud- I couldn't really hear my tablemates, so there was a lot of talking just to the person next to me. Two of the beers on the list of 6 were out, so that was a bummer. The wait staff was very pleasant and quick to help us. It did seem to take a while to get our food, but it was a busy night and we had a big group. Not everyone loved their food, which is why my rating was lower. I'm not convinced any of us will be back.

    We had the burger/fries special, hush puppies and chicken wings appetizers. The food was fantastic, our server was attentive and always there for a drink refill or whatever we needed. Would definitely recommend.

    I had the beet salad and the mussels in the curry sauce. Both were excellent.
