Our server was wonderful. Ambience might have been good but the heat was out and it was very cold. The food was decent, and very rich. This is a good place to share a dish. The Risotto was ok, so was the Coq au vin. I was expecting more given the reviews. It is possible it was just an off... More

During our recent "return to Aspen", we ate out each evening. In the "off" season (October/November) many restaurants are closed. Rustique was open when we visited and the ambiance was quite nice. Their prix fixte menu system was interesting and offered significant tasty-sounding options. Our meal was a mixed bag - my flank steak, marinated too little, cooked a bit... More

W enjoyed another wonderful meal while visiting Aspen this September. As usual, the food was delicious and the service perfect. MUST have the onion soup!! The best I've had anywhere! The maitre D' was charming and his wine suggestion was right on.

Steak au Poivre high quality rib eye and perfectly cooked; Beef “Pot au Feu” was good. Nice wine list and excellent service from being greeted to the wait staff. Wonderful treat.

Cozy place with great food. Pleasantly surprised that it was not too crazily priced, by Aspen standards. We also has the bonus of being there on one of their fall 30% off nights. We tried a variety of food amongst us, with no complaints. The trout was delicious, as were the truffle pommes frites. Spinach salad and the soufflé were... More

I was really looking forward to Rustique because I've enjoyed it in the past and they are known to have excellent Sweetbreads, which are the cow's thymus glands and wonderful if sauteed properly without too much flour. We did find a spectacular Cotes du Rhone for only $54 (quite a feat in Aspen), but the food just didn't live up... More

Had dinner last night. Everything from start to finish was on point! Had the cheese soufflé and pot au feu, both were fantastic. I was solo, so I sat at the bar and was welcomed by the bartender,Sammy. Sammy was amazing and he had the whole bar enthralled and entertained as he poured creative cocktails and regaled us all with... More
