Asri is always fun. The waitstaff is very prof essional, and the food is good. We have learned that it is more cost effective to avoid the unpriced special on the menu insert.

The restaurant was very nice and in a great location of the Gas lamp district. The service was very slow and took almost an hour to get food to the table once ordered. Risotto was a little undercooked, but the fish was excellent. The servers were very nice and kept drinks refilled.
