My husbands expectations were not high, considering it is in a strip mall. We were happily surprised with the ambiance as soon as we walked in the door. The menu was amazing and we will be back to try more of the items.

Great experience. First time here and we tried the soecial weekly menu - Cuban week. The pork chops were tender and spicy, but not the flavor I was expecting. It wasn’t bad, just not what I expected. The ambience was amazing. Great place for good laughs, good food (crab artichoke dip/calamari/bread pudding), and good times.

Mother's Day. Reservations made for 5:45pm. Did not get seated until 6:15pm because "two 8-tops just came in". So, why did I make reservations?
Then, as my kids are screaming and we just want to finally sit down, we are given a talk about their Covid policies, and our dining needs to be done "within an hour and a half". So welcoming! I hope our time didn't start when my reservations were for!
Seems like they are still getting their footing. Food was fair. Service was OK, as we were sat by the bar, so our server was doubling as the bartender.

I’ve been to Ashling Kitchen & Bar numerous times and have always been blown away by the food and customer service but was especially blown away with the level of professionalism they had when we had brunch there on Mother’s Day. I would highly recommend Ashling Kitchen & Bar!

Mother’s Day dinner . I had never been there but have seen it during my travels. But I never knew anything about but online online menu looked great. I was pleasantly surprised with the cool ambience and music. The staff was very friendly and very attentive. I look forward to going there again to dine or or just sit at the bar.

This was our first visit to Ashling and it was excellent. Our server, Lindsay, was so sweet and helpful and spent time telling us the back story of the owners. The specials were of Cuban orientation and the 2 dishes we had were phenomenal. The calamari was also excellent; crispy not greasy with lots of fresh flavors. We will return.

Very polite waiter. Food was plated too long before served because some items arrived cold or lukewarm. The restaurant is not enforcing a mask policy when not seated at your table which is unsafe. Other customers besides me and my family were also in shock. I literally saw employees hugging unmasked regulars. Very disappointing. I can’t return.

Went out for 90’s Moms Night out on Friday night. We had a great time, great food, and great music! Sitting so close to the speaker made it a little hard to hear the table conversation but overall a great time! I hope you guys do this again!

As we were never seated I cannot speak to food quality or value. So the only choice I could make was poor for those categories.

We had made reservations and was looking forward to having a nice evening celebrating our 32nd anniversary. Upon arrival the only table they had was on the bar side of the restaurant which is essentially a sports bar. We were not interested in all the sports broadcasts on all the TV screens and asked to be reseated in another section without the level of noise to make conversation easy. There were no other tables available and we waited for a short while and finally left. It didn’t seem that the hostess was real sympathetic to our desire and implied that the available table met the requirement of the reservation. She knew it was our anniversary BTW as it was on the reservation.

I have really enjoyed the curbside experience with Ashling, and I can say that I was also pleased with my first indoor experience. Our food came quickly and was delicious! I really like the Shrimp and Grits as well as the No Meat for Your Burger. This restaurant has a great ambiance as well.

Love going to this chic local restaurant in Crofton MD. It’s truly one of a kind. Their menu is eclectic and delicious. I usually get the Salmon with bacon jam and Parmesan risotto and my husband always gets their fish and chips. They always have great specials and last night I enjoyed one of their Cuban dishes ... as good as you’d get in Miami !

Asking Kitchen is still finding its footing. Excellent service and an imaginative food and drinks menu. But the dishes tend to be heavy and salty with unbalanced seasoning.

Overall the establishment is a nice place. However, the food was a little salty. We had gumbo, salmon, and Mac and cheese.

Gumbo- salty
Mac and cheese-way to much cheese for a child. ( very rich in flavor for a toddler)
Salmon-very sweet. Overloaded with sauce couldn’t taste the salmon.

When we came in for our reservation we were told they only booked guests to eat at a table for 2 hours maximum. (A bit rudely) It took an extremely long time to get our appetizers and then our food and dessert. It's not the best practice to tell your customers they have a time limit and then do a poor job of serving food promptly.

The food was good, so I will go back again but if the service continues to be poor, that will be my last visit.

The menu does not give clear descriptions. I ordered the shrimp and grits and asked the bartender if it had meat. They said no. After eating I had to spit out ham. I have not eaten anything but fish for almost three years so I was concerned. I asked to speak the manager. The manager was in eyesight and continued to avoid coming to speak to us. After 5 minutes the cook came out with a nonchalant response to my concern. Then when I told him he could not help. The manager still did not come over. I asked again for the 4th time and after 15 mins to have him come over. He came over and was rude and disrespectful and then kicked us out the restaurant while my friend was eating. We never got rude with him just said we will give a review. I have even said I had a great experience the day before. But I will never ever be back.

Many of menu item were unavailable and the server took to long to take our order.

The table next to use had there food before we did and the appetizer came out the same time our was delivered to the table.

The snapper tasted like vinegar was poured over top of it.

For an appetizer, we ordered fried green tomatoes. "We don't have any tomatoes." We ordered a crab pretzel and it had absolutely no taste. We asked them to please lower the volume of the music so that we could hear each other talking. After 3 requests, they did lower the music. One of our entre orders was a Shepherd's Pie. "We don't have any Shepherd's Pie." Upon being seated, we should have been advised of all items that were not available. The entres we received tasted ok, but the menu is very ordinary. I have no intention of returning or making a favorable recommendation to friends.

The food and drinks are consistently good but during my last visit they were out of quite a few dishes. Wait staff was mediocre and though I had a reservation it took awhile before being seated.
