The food was out of this world. We had the hummus, pickled vegetables, Israeli salad with falafel and halumi cheese. We happily overate!

We arrived at 5:30 for a 5:45 reservation. At 6:15 the waitress told us that we’d need to leave by 7:15 for their next reservation. We had 9 people and were planning on enjoying a long night. Worse yet, when we finally left at 7:30 there was no other reservation.

Great staff, ambiance, and the food was delish. Excellent customer service! Hostess proactively notified us of patio conditions (we booked patio table for a day with high temp of 9 degrees) so we could assess whether to re-book for a different day or to book table inside. What a thoughtful thing to do!

This was a very NOT relaxing dining experience! We felt very rushed because of their 90 minute time limit for guests. I understand that they are trying to maximize their revenue, but our waitress didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert or anything else, she just brought the bill when our 90 minutes was up. She was practically RUNNING from table to table. It felt very rushed throughout as she kept asking if we are ready to order when we only had a minute or two to look over the menu etc. etc. Overall, the food is good but the portions are quite small. And it is very very loud. And that was only at 25% capacity!

We had reservations for 5 p.m. and were told that we had to complete dinner within an hour and a half. An hour and a half was consumed waiting for our meal to be served. Though our waiter was personable, he spent a lot of time socializing with guests at other tables. While the concept is good, and the food is reasonably good, the very slow and poor service detracts from any positives. A 20% gratuity is automatically included in the bill, and there is space for leaving an additional "tip". Having waited tables while attending law school, I always leave a minimum gratuity of 20% because I think the wait staff deserves it for reasonable service. But I'd prefer that the discretion be left to me regarding how much to tip. Had the food fare and service been reasonable, I would have no problem with a 20% gratuity. But the service was so poor, I felt it unreasonable for the restaurant to presume that a 20% was reasonable. It wasn't. Though disappointing because we are always looking for new good places to dine, we won't be returning. We were told that management is considering opening two new restaurants. Good luck!!!!

Everything we ate was fantastic. Started with the humus and wood fired pita and our main dishes were the Zatar chicken and 14 hour short rib. Flavors you dream about and the service was outstanding. Great job and we will be back!

Went for a Saturday lunch on a friends reccomendation. I was pleasantly surprised by the quirky modern Moroccan decor and the simple, clean - Elegantly spiced food! They have things on the menu you cannot get anywhere else on Denver.

everything perfect. the service, the dining area, the cocktails, the food. between the 5 of us, we were able to try most areas of the menu and found not a thing we did not like. of note, they even paid attention to the Open table note stating that this was a belated birthday celebration.

Their pita comes out piping hot, so good but be careful! The food and service overall were really good. I would put this place on par with Safta but better priced. In regards to COVID, they do have a patio with heaters and the tables are 6 feet apart but they have built up plexiglass walls likely to keep in the heat and while I am sure it is compliant with the COVID regulations I like to offer that information up as it is not entirely an open-air patio.

Ambience was poor due to covid-19. Wine list limited, but good selections. Would have liked to see more lsraeli and Lebanese selections instead of italy.

My lamb was good, but the falafels were over fried and almost as hard as golf balls. Took them home and they were better warned after a night in the frig.

We love this restaurant. The food is amazing, great flavors and perfectly cooked. The lamb kofte, falafel and halloumi cheese salad are all standouts. They also have a great cocktail and wine list. Ash’Kara is one of the best Mediterranean/middle eastern restaurants in Denver and definitely worth several visits.
