Asparagus is one of our favorite restaurants. That is why we chose it for our anniversary dinner. The beef lover dish with a Thai Vietnamese twist was outstanding. Service was very attentive.

Appetizer (chicken Satay) was delicious and delightful. Both main dishes were of very ample size and well presented. The ingredients seemed top notch and perfectly prepared. The problem was that the sauces(Which were excellent at first taste) quickly came to be overwhelming and too salty. We ate in the bar area, which is beautiful. The service was friendly and agreeable.

We had not eaten inside at Asparagus since before the pandemic. The food did not disappoint, the waitress wore a mask which we appreciated.

The restaurant is made up of at least three rooms. The front left took is there meeting dining area and is rather open spaces with a banquet room feel. The front right room is the bar and that has a beautiful ambience with low lighting and high tables with candles. The back room is a banquet room and very open and spacious but no lt much to satisfy the eye.

When we checked in for our reservation, we looked into the bar room with the nice ambience and requested a table there, as there were three open. The hostess then said there were no tables available there. Excuse me but we have reservations and there are empty tables...... The hostess walked us to the back room with no ambience and have us a corner to sit at......

Everything was amazing and the menu had so many interesting items I’ll definitely go back to see if I can try a few more! Our server was the kindest gentleman and took such great care! Highly recommend stopping by for a meal only reason I gave the ambiance a 4/5 was that the dining room away from the bar area was still quite bright but no problem for me honestly they’ve done a good job obscuring the light from leeching into the bar

Extremely friendly and attentive service. They also were very patient as my wife and I don’t get away from the kids very often so we wanted to sit and talk awhile and take our time with our meal :-). The food was absolutely delicious, both my Seafood Penang and my wife’s Nutty Chicken, and we would highly recommend them!

Glad we had reservations (6:30pm Thur) because it was packed and they were turning people away. Acoustics in the dining room amplified the talking and made it nearly impossible to have a conversation—very noisy. Service, especially taking our order and waiting to get our bill, very slow. Drunken noodles very good but the duck extremely dry. When we mentioned it to our server, she said she hears that complaint a lot but yet didn’t suggest another option when we ordered it.

I don't know if it was an off night or not, but I was very disappointed in my meal. It was so salty (not only mine), it was impossible to enjoy. I did mention it to our server, but nothing came of it. I have enjoyed eating there in the past, so I don't know what happened.

I am so sorry about that! We have had such a hard time getting our catfish, calamari & our pork shanks (along with random items) in from our vendors. I was hoping this doesn't last too long so we haven't taken off the menu yet since these are all some of the favorites!

There are very few restaurants in the 219 area code that provide you with excellent food and beverages at a reasonable price.
Asparagus is the leader in my opinion.
Customer service, diverse and delicious menu - including both appetizers/small plates and Entrees and a cocktail menu that is both creative as well as flavorful.
I would recommend Asparagus for an after work drink; a date night dinner; a group gathering (there's two nicely sized rooms for parties - we used the small one in the lounge for our daughter's college graduation celebration seating around 15 people) or just to order and take out - you will not be disappointed with your selection (but you may be envious of your partner's dish!).

The onion rings on the scale of tempura or not cooked all the way. And the scallops were actually cool or colder. We let the manager know and it was taken off the bill. Otherwise very enjoyable evening with other food and cocktails

Asparagus is a delicious place to eat dinner. I’ve been there many times and I’ve never had a bad meal and our server was amazing. And the portions are huge you will always bring home a doggy bag. And the atmosphere is very nice in there but be prepared it is expensive but it’s definitely worth every bit of the price you pay to eat there.

Great food, great drinks, and great atmosphere. There was a large group that was going into the part room that hung out in the bar that was very loud and disruptive. Luckily they did not stand there for more than 20 minutes. Highly recommend!
