My buddy and I went here after reading it was midtown’s #1 sports bar online. We came for the Bruins-Leafs game which was put on 3 TVs (that I saw from our table). We asked to get the sound and were told that the sound only goes on for the Yankee game from the bartender. I’m sorry, but a playoff game that at least 7 patrons (including two Leafs fans in gear) are there for when nobody is into the Yankee game is lame. It’s a sports bar and you’d rather have Fly Like An Eagle playing? Come on.

Also the food was just ok. There are too many menus (we weren’t given the bar menu which didn’t have those items on any other menu we were given) and only the filet sliders we got were decent. The pizza was limp and the cheese slid off. The chicken pot pie had a square piece of crust that didn’t cover the dish like 99% of chicken pot pies. And the chicken looked too processed in its cube form.

The one area that this place excelled was the service. We got our drinks quickly and we were always asked if we needed anything. Very prompt and friendly service.

A gathering with long-time friends, we had such an enjoyable evening on 4/15/19. Staff are warm & friendly - thank you Sully, Connie & Tanya. Food is delicious. They have the BEST music adding to the delightful ambiance. My heart is heavy, thinking this awesome local place will be no more. Best wishes to Patrick & his fantabulous crew. Thank you.

We were a group of five ladies in to watch a playoff football game. We had a table placed right in front a a huge TV.... and our team won. We enjoyed food and drinks all night. Our server was fabulous, an Irish but I have forgotten her name. Great time had by all! We will be back!

Worst service from Bartender our party of 4 has ever had. Food was fair but she acted like we were bothering her...she was on her phone most of the time and this was a sports playoff day in a sports bar. Had to go into dining room to ask for salt n pepper, even napkins. First time we ever left less than 20% tip. Never again.

Great spot but on the noisy side, even on a quiet Tuesday. Around 10 pm the lights dimmed and the volume of the music kicked up perceptibly.

Very much a sports bar feel with a restaurant attached. The food was fine enough but definitely not memorable. Would definitely go back for a couple beers, bar food, and a yankee game. As a sit-down dinner area there are much better options in the area.

I frequently stay at nearby hotels when I am in NYC. If I am not having a meal with a client, I like to go here because it is handy, the meals are simple , and it is a relatively quick meal. Also, one is not uncomfortable being a single person. There are numerous televisions showing sporting events, but but there is no audio or on screen text which is a bit disconcerting.

I don’t like leaving negative reviews, but brunch at Ashton’s Alley was a disappointing experience.
Firstly, the brunch special was advertised as $26.95 for entree & unlimited drinks both on the restaurant’s website, as well as Yelp / other sources. Upon arriving we were told that the promotion was old & now it was $15 for drinks plus an entree ($20 for buffalo chicken salad!) I tried to argue but to no avail.
Second, after agreeing to the bottomless drink option, I was incredibly disappointed to discover that the mimosas were 90% OJ — I told the waiter it was too much OJ & too little champagne, but instead of bringing me a new drink he brought over the bottle of champagne & poured literally 2 drops of champagne into the top of my glass (I had only taken a sip). While he did make an effort to keep our glasses full following this encounter, I just found it bizarre & poor customer service — especially being that we were 1 of 3 tables in the entire place.
Finally, the maître’d had a serious attitude. Unfriendly an unapproachable. Was visibly annoyed when I asked to sit at a booth instead of table (despite there being no one in the restaurant). Overall I was super frustrated with this experience. It’s a shame Bc I previously attended a happy hour here and had a great experience. Hopefully brunch will improve.
