We always get the same thing for lunch. Market Salad with seared scallops added on. Scallops are always big and grilled just right. The warm bread slices are a nice touch.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Roasted Salmon with Miso Butter, quinoa and grilled veggies entree. And, the perfect ending was the Hazelnut Brûlée. Awesome lunch!!

Outdoor dining was disappointing. Just a few tables outside the entrance to the restaurant. I miss the tent which was lovely.
The menu is great, food was delicious and our server attentive and wonderful.

This was our second time eating lunch outside on the porch, which was really very nice. It was chilly, but we dressed warmly and the cold just made it more fun. The food was very high quality and the service was on point. Really great to have Aspen on our dinning list.

We were two couples on a short holiday in Old Saybrook. Aspen was recommended by some on line postings. We were very happy with everything at Aspen. All of our meals were well prepared (strip steak, lobster peppadali and ahi tuna. Ambiance was very nice with social distancing observed. Our server, Catherine, was absolutely great. Her recommendations were spot on in addition to her being a very pleasant young lady. We all Iive 3 hours away but if I’m ever in the area again, a stop at Aspen is a must. The food, price value and service made it a very pleasant dining experience.

We were looking for a restaurant on our way home from a visit to a Stonington vineyard and happened to read good reviews on this restaurant. We decided to give it a try and we are so happy we did. Our party of 4 each got something different which we all loved our meals, but the best was the raspberry chocolate desert. Can’t wait for a return visit to try more of their entrees.

Interesting appetizers. Definitely recommend ordering many to share. The main dishes were good, but some - we were a party of 4 - a bit bland. Wait staff were terrific: friendly and attentive.
