Don’t know how this place got such high reviews. The food sucked and this place was dead. Very expensive for garbage. Don’t go.

We had a very nice dinner in the outside seating area of this neighborhood sports bar. This location allowed us to talk but still see the game on TV when we wanted. The spinach dip with tortilla chips (appetizer) was outstanding and the burgers were very good. Service was friendly.

Went with ten people to watch MLB playoffs. Sat outside with great view of large inside TV’s. Started out by myself and informed hostess ,Brie, that more people would be coming over time. She couldn’t have been more accommodating. Service was excellent. Terrific venue for watching a sporting event on a beautiful evening. Better than most sports bars in midtown.

We were probably the only tourist there. We felt we discovered a "neighborhood gem." Great atmosphere, food and drink for watching the NBA final. Wish I could remember our waiter's name. He also was a gem.

My boyfriend and I headed here for a quick bite after work. We learned that Happy Hour was only for beers (which we didn't drink that much). Our reservation was for 6:30 so we were able to seat right away. The food was good, and the place really lit up right before the NBA finals game came on. Overall it was a great night!

Went here for mother's day with my daughter who is also a mother. We had massages prior to arriving to Ashton's. My veggie omelet was great and my daughter's California wrap was great too. We had a great time.

Considering how many great places there are on every street of Manhattan, i would not go back to this place. It was an 80 degree day and it was unbearable sitting inside... Early in the season and management has not turned AC on yet. We moved closer to outside and it was ok... Food was very mediocre... Absolutely nothing special. I usually love sweet potato fries and theirs had way too much starch coating (used to make fries crispy sometimes) it took away from natural flavor. Kobe burger tasted very good... But its a burger... Like i said very average place. We did not have alcoholic drinks so i cant comment on that. Free soda refills were appreciated. TV was also great to watch a Yankee game.

Meal was good! However burger is usually served with French fries. I substituted fresh vegetables and had to pay $4 more even though the price for side of fresh vegetables or French fries are are the same price. There should not be a substitute fee if price is same.

Good midtown bar for a weekday sporting event... if you just need to grab a drink and some better-than-normal bar food after work (March Madness, NBA, NHL, etc.) in the midtown area, this is a solid choice.

We went here with a large group to watch NCAA basketball and NCAA wrestling, as Ashton's has dozens of big screen TVs. The noise level was appropriate for a sports bar during the tournament, same for ambience.
Service was incredibly spotty, however, with two waiters manning the floor and one bartender. A hostess was on the floor but did not participate in anything other than seating guests. At one point, we asked that 1 television be turned to ESPN and so we could watch NCAA Wrestling finals, and were given a bit of attitude about the request. Meanwhile most of the other patrons had left the restaurant after the finish of a college basketball game. Just seemed strange that a sports bar staff member treated our request as though we asked to put on a soap opera or something non-sporty. Whatever.
Would not return here unless absolutely necessary … It is a loud, casual sports bar in midtown, but their food and service should step up a notch to make people want to come back.

My fiancee and I went there to get a late dinner since it was near our hotel. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, and the food wasn't terrible but it was only average and was the same quality if I was to make it. The price did not match the quality. The atmosphere was a little odd as well, since it was somewhat sports bar themed, but only half the televisions had sports on them and not much sports decor was up. I favor more heavily on customer service so I wold return, but only for a drink and maybe an appetizer next time.

Ashton's is a bar feel, yet it manages to convert to an upscale sports bar. I really like the atmosphere. The place is so big and depending on the time you get there, it can be noisy, but never so much that shouting has to be resorted to in order to be heard. The food is delicious. The service is excellent.

There were so many tvs with all the sports I wanted to watch for the day. The bottomless 2 hour mimosas were good, if a bit weak if you personally asked me.

Our server was amazing and really kept our glasses full though and the food came out quickly.

We made reservations via Open Table for 11:15am and showed up on time only for the hostess to tell us they don't open until 11:30am.
They was no hospitality.
It took 30 minutes for someone to ask if we would like water and another 30 minutes to order a coffee.
The service extremely poor...and food was very disappointing.
