Service awful. Great hostess. Server hardly noticed us with only one other table in the restaurant. Food 10/10. Will be ordering takeout/deliver for sure.

Food was great as usual, but disappointed that we had to leave our table after 1.5 hours considering restaurants are back at 100% capacity. Seems very greedy and ruins the experience.

Wonderful restaurant. The food is great, fresh and delicious - especially if you are a vegetarian. There are many vegetarian/ vegan options. It is LoHi Denver, so parking is rarely an issue. And they have a parking lot. Service is great as are the creative cocktails.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing dinner! It was the perfect way to end our vacation. The waitress was the sweetest and went out of her way to make the evening special. I would recommend this place. The food is so cheap for the value also.

Ash'Kara blew me away. Everything we ate was delicious and the service as outstanding. We were celebrating my mom's birthday - and the restaurant went above and beyond to treat her. Highly recommend the carrots, hummus + mushroom conserva and octopus. I consider it my new favorite restaurant!

We arrived early enough (before 5:30) to take advantage of 'Happy Hour' offerings. That's a great value. We ordered items from both the Happy Hour menu and the dinner menu resulting in nice variety of dishes.
We opted to have our items brought to the table 'when ready' (as opposed to all at one time). That was also a good choice. Everything arrived hot off the grill (or right out of the oven) and we enjoyed a constant stream of delicious food.
The wait staff used a 'team' approach resulting in excellent service.

I highly recommend Ash'Kara for Mideastern fare.

Issac was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations for food and drinks. He was able to pace the kitchen to fire our selections in steady progression which elevated our experience. I don’t know what they do to make the roasted chicken so amazing but I’ve never had a chicken dish melt in my mouth before! Highly recommend the falafel, carrots and chicken dish.

We brought some out of town guests for our “fancy” meal while they were in town. We got a bottle of wine (and some special attention from the bar manager to describe it to us) and had a sampling of the smaller plates. Everything paired well together and was just right for 4 to share. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an upscale meal that you couldn’t get anywhere else.

Lovely late night snack at this lively spot. The hummus was delicious and so was their Bulgarian feta. The fries were definitely a bit old and I got served the wrong glass of wine but the ambiance was awesome, the server was sweet and lively and i chalk up what happened to the fact that we arrived on the late side. I’d definitely go again!

Great food and service. Noisy room. Thankfully, the hostess seated us in a relatively quiet corner.

Cocktails were well prepared and we had them along with house olives.

Labneh and the house made pita were excellent. The pita is all puffed up as it is served out of the oven.

We then split the eggplant tagine. Also excellent.

The baklava was the best ever—we travel extensively and thus know something about baklava. Be prepared to be blown away.

A side comment on the world in which we live:
Why do twenty-somethings who sit two feet apart from each other feel that it’s important to yell at each other by way of having a conversation? Do they think they are not being heard?

What a great spot! The food we ordered was all delicious (hummus & pita, Spanish octopus, and short rib), our cocktails were fantastic (the papaya mule), and the service was exceptional - Kind and professional, but laid back and funny as well. The restaurant itself is fun and modern. We can't wait to go back!

I love this place on a normal night out, but last night we had the worst experience I’ve had dining in Denver. Our waitress paid little to no attention to our table of 6. It took over an hour for our food to get to our table (at which point our time limit at the table was up) and we even had to send back a dish of the falafel because they were hard as rocks.

They got rid of their mint mule which was by far their best drink as well. But I will say that the hummus is still the best you’ll find in Denver.

Really disappointed with last nights service and it was my friends first time going so I know they won’t be back.

I had their hummus and pita as an appetizer, and boy oh boy, that could easily be the best hummus I've ever had. Outstanding service from the staff, and a beautiful ambiance. Would recommend to anyone that loves delicious Mediterranean food.

The food was exquisite and our waiter, Carl, couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful There was nothing negative about the entire experience except for the fact that I was cold! We had lunch and the restaurant was quite chilly so I ate with my coat on! It was a small price to pay for such a delicious meal and great service.

it was a lovely experience with awesome food! the only thing i would change was our seating. we crammed 7 people in the corner booth near wood burning oven and it was too tight for all of us. 5 or 6 should be the limit there no matter what size kids you have. (we had 5 adults 2 preteens) .
get all of the appetizers and limit the entrees- save a little money and still get quality food!
