If you are a hipster and you are willing to spend horrendous amounts of money on small amounts of food then you will love that place. We just wanted to try a new place and we also had a promotional offer but the experience was disappointing and we probably won't be back. Don't get me wrong, the food was delicious and the ambiance is great and the service staff can't be blamed for the prices and amounts of food you are getting. Its just the kind of place it is. What bothers me the most is the server that practically stopped serving us once she realized that we are not going to spend $40+ on drinks and $50+ a person on food. She barely said goodbye to us. Funny how cheery she was with the neighborhs table even though she wasn't the one drinking all the wine 😂
I never write reviews but this place was that good! Can be a little pricey for what you get, but if you order smart it's worth every penny. I personally enjoyed doing a lot of smaller plates to try a bit of everything as opposed to paying $ for the larger portioned options. Will definitely be back!
Everything about this restaurant is amazing. Friendly staff, attentive yet not intrusive service. It feels as though you are a guest in someone’s home with a come as you are vibe. Everything from the decor to the seating choices reflect this feeling of welcome and comfort. The food is delicious. We had the hummus with the Bulgarian marinated feta, falafel, babaganoush, and the whole fish. The flavor in every dish was enhanced by the wood fired pita bread. It would be a shame if I failed to mention the cocktails. We had the Ash’Kara old fashioned and it was delicious, smooth, and not overpowering. I am extremely satisfied with my experience here and will definitely recommend them to my friends and colleagues.
Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had and my boyfriend agrees. Hummus with mushrooms was fantastic, pastrami on the bone was delectable. A little pricey for the small plates but worth every penny. We haven’t stopped talking about it and can’t wait to go back!
Amazing experience. Food and drinks are authentic and delicious. One of my top new favorites!
I'd heard good things about the restaurant and we were excited to try it as I love Mediterranean food. Sadly, it was a very disappointing experience and we won't be back.
Love the decor and atmosphere, so had high hopes, but the service was sub-par, and the cocktails were unbalanced — as were the flavors of the food.
The exception was the hummus and lamb, which were wonderful although the hummus portion was very small (and $15 with a few wood-fired mushrooms). There is potential here but needs MUCH more attention and oversight from management. (Listening??) Feels like a lot of show to me. The staff was aloof and uninspired. Our order came out wrong and took 20 minutes to revive the correct small plate. They did remove this from the bill, as they should have done.
Maybe we'll try again in six months for drinks with hopes that all will improve.
Food was really good. Service was not so good and wine was a problem, taps didn't work, ordered a bottle... it was warm. Ended up waiting a really long time just to get a sub par drink. Really too bad. Food is the hard part and it was delicious.
Some of the best food I’ve had in Denver. Loved everything about the experience.
Great way to socialize, lots of vegan choices, great new flavors
Food was delicious, but service was slow.
Great flavors, lovely decor, but it’s the “$20 hummus place” and that’s a bit spendy for what it is.
Favorite spot in Denver! I’ve been 3 times now and it never disappoints.
Only if you are not pressed for time. Our reservation was for a hightop and they tried to seat us in a booth in the back corner by the kitchen. The service was very, very slow. Waiting 10-15 minutes for anyone to even take an order. We had to ask for service several times and remind the server of items we had ordered. The food was very good. We still had an enjoyable evening. Hopefully, this was a fluke in their service.
Fabulous food. It is pricey because portions are small so you do have to order a lot. Love the decor and staff are quite knowledgeable on every item of the menu. Will definitely return
Great food and ambiance!
Everything was delicious. We arrived during happy hour, and were able to try several things on the hh menu along with cocktails. It was a great way to sample dishes. Can't wait to go back.
Food was pretty good. Hummus was fantastic and the pita was like a fluffy pillow. The sauce with the falafel and the sauce with the lamb were both underwhelming and could’ve been more flavorful, but the falafel and lamb itself were both so good! Service was friendly but sparse. We saw our server maybe once after checking on us when we got our food. We would’ve ordered more cocktails but she never came back around.
Great menu with tons of vegetarian options. Perfect for a light dinner party
Food is delicious! Great portion sizes, fabulous flavors.
Always a great place
Outstanding food and service!! Friendliest staff - both front of house and kitchen. Very attentive and generous!!!
Fabulous food, customer service, cocktails, all so great. We’ll be back soon for sure but as a smaller group. It is extremely loud in the space and there is no way to have a conversation with a group larger than 4.
Could be great for a family, kids and adults can enjoy the food and using fingers to eat most items.
Highly recommend this place for any occasion.
My first time here. A treasure found! The staff was friendly! We had our waitress help us choose some small dishes to compliment the main course. We started with hummus and ended with lamb and a whole sea bass! It was prepared well and tasted better than what I imagine it to be. I am new to this type of cuisine, it was excellent! The outdoor seating was so much fun! Just the right amount of people and noise, great ambiance. I will come back! Thank you for such a great experience. I really enjoyed branching out and trying all the dishes.
Food was fantastic and the staff was very sweet and accommodating!!!
Ash’Kara is incredible. My friend grew up on a Mediterranean cuisine and we both agreed this was one of the best meals we’ve had in Denver. Every single thing we ordered was perfect and a unique cuisine delight. (And we ordered a lot) Thank you, Ash’Kara!
Ash'Kara never fails. The server let me know that they were understaffed for the evening upon welcoming us (which I thought was very thoughtful) and ensured that he would be working harder to make sure we were taken care of. He did exactly that. Carl checked in regularly, provided exceptional service, and the food came quickly and was fresh. The drinks were crafted to perfection and the food was absolutely incredible - per usual. The ambiance and total feel of the restaurant was perfect for a date night or evening out with friends and family.
Amazing food and great setting. Took a while to get drinks but our waiter was great and can’t wait to go back
The lamb was amazing!
Delish food, great drinks and amazing patio. Servers were all friendly and welcoming! Definitely going back!
Our experience at Ash'Kara was wonderful. The food was stunning and delicious. The service was warm, professional and attentive. We would recommend it without any hesitation.
The food is simply amazing. This is the 4th time we have been back since January
Get the lamb
We all loved everything about that evening- we will dine here again 😁
Amazing food! Love all of the gluten free options.
The prices really are very reasonable for the quality of food you will get, and the quality is absolutely wonderful. Everything was so, so good. I haven't had pita and hummus that good since my last trip to the middle east.
Busy happening place. Great food, great service. If you're looking for something different, I highly recommend this place.
the pita here was amazing. great service, great food!
Not a bad thing on the menu!
Joined friends and shared quite a few plates. Great food and fun. Nice wine list for something a bit different 🙃
Great ambiance and amazing food! We definitely will be back!
