We tried this spot for the first time last night, and it was amazing - definitely exceeded expectations (which were high to begin with given it's rating on OpenTable!).

Server took a bit to get to us initially (it was very busy and only waited a few minutes) but once she did, we had an excellent experience. The Manhattan was well-made, and the crab and artichoke dip was really, really good.

My wife's Steak Frites were great tasting and the portion sizes were fantastic - love those truffle fries! My chicken and waffles was also fantastic, and the pecan brown sugar butter was a perfect compliment to the waffles. The chicken batter was the only part that wasn't a 10/10 (was still an 8/10) but the overall experience was wonderful, and we will absolutely be back.

I'm just sad we didn't realize it was here until now! I 100% recommend you try this place out if you haven't, you won't be disappointed!

I am pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant in my area that has the sort of vibe Ashling does. Every time we visit, I try something new. It's just that type of restaurant where you know whatever you order, it will be good.

Most recently, I had the French Dip. Typically, I don't care for ordering sandwiches at a restaurant but I was feeling frisky. I am so glad I tried something different. First off, the portion size was phenomenal. Secondly, the prime rib was so delicate and juicy. The jus was super tasty, and the cheese was the perfect elasticity. I opted to have the parmesan truffle fries. They complimented the sandwich perfectly. The cocktails are also a delight. I regularly order the 19th Hole and the Cucumber cocktails.

For someone moving from DC proper to a suburb in Anne Arundel County, I feel like we really lucked out having Ashling in our neighborhood.

Our waitress Danielle was a gem and attentive, helpful. Great food and drinks - the lemon drop was straight alcohol and less lemon - could have been more of a balance - but was certainly drinkable.

The food was good but not fantastic. I mean, the burger was ridiculous, but the other stuff was just good.
The main issue, however, was the noise. It was close to impossible to have a conversation without yelling. Like, our group didn't talk much because it was such a challenge.
Also, my daughter had apple juice. We were charged $4 for each refill. That is not super classy.

Our server was great and our food tasted decent. However, when we found a long, black hair in our food, the chef was extremely rude. The charge for that item was waived, but the chef’s attitude and lack of customer service skills left a bad taste in our mouths. This was our second time going there and we are unlikely to return.

My husband and I visiting Ashling Kitchen & Bar for our anniversary dinner. Even though this is in a storefront/shopping center, the interior is very cute and welcoming. Our server was very nice and attentive, but didn't hover. We enjoyed our food and drinks. Together we had the fried green tomatoes, wings, street tacos w/blackened salmon, and seafood gumbo. My husband's biggest complaint was that the gumbo wasn't his favorite (definitely not better than his haha) and he couldn't find the crawfish that were advertised. Overall, we had a very good experience and we'd return!

Our waiter was a bit rude on more than one occasion. We ordered a lot of small plates and then opted for an entree. We got the Rasta pasta which was not good. We told them and he just left the food there and said we don’t take back food . .. just awkward.

A nice original restaurant in Crofton. Appreciate the variety on the menu and the fact that this is not a chain. It was a bit loud and echoing, but clean and tables well spaced. My street tacos were delicious and a generous portion. Will definitely be back.

Six women who hadn't gotten together since COVID started met for dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was wonderful and plentiful. 2 of us had Salmon BLT's that were terrific, one had a chicken sandwich she loved, 2 had grain bowls that were huge and flavorful. Going to try the shrimp and grits next time which the manager said were top notch. Service was excellent. A class act. Will definitely be back!

Service was very bad. Do not order anything that you may not like because they do not return or exchange any food. Would not recommend the calamari at all. We called for the manager and he never came, instead kept relaying messages thru our waiter even though we seen him on the floor doing nothing. Entree was ok. But the staff is not accommodating at all.

This was our third time there and this time we brought friends. But I must say I was a little disappointed in the service. First of all, every time we asked about a substitute, we were told the restaurant either did not have or would not substitute an ingredient, one of which was simple broccoli. My friend asked for gravy on the side and her meal came with the gravy incorporated in the dish. It took an extremely long time to get our drinks, and then later the meal. Overall, our server seemed either too lazy to make the changes we wanted or did not know enough about the menu. I'm hoping they were just having a bad night because the other two times we were there, we enjoyed our experience.
Even though I checked I would recommend them to a friend, I'm really not sure.

First off this comes as a true disappointment after having an amazing experience my first visit about a month or so ago. We went for the “Brazilian” week as we enjoyed Morocco so much we wanted to give it another try. I ordered one of the special entrees that was being offered but should’ve definitely went with my initial choice. Upon first glance everything looked fine so I was just excited and dug in. First bite of the steak was very bland and fatty. Now I dont mind a good fatty steak as I eat ribeye steak as preference all the time so this was very different. So I thought I’d give another piece another chance and other than the chimchurri seasoning I tasted nothing. I had to spit the steak out as it was hard to chew and swallow without it getting stuck in my throat.At this point I’m underwhelmed at what was going on with my plate and lost desire to continue. The asparagus was bland and whatever else they made up for a starch. I’m not one to complain about my meal as I hate having to send something back but this was no good. I explained to my waiter what happened and she gave her unwarranted opinion that fatty steak was good steak.... Young lady I’ve ate at some of the best steak houses and know good steak when I taste it! So she goes on to say” well what would you like to do” and gave me two options to either box it up for later or order something else. And my first thought was if I said it wasn’t good why would you think I’d take it home in hopes of a miracle. But you know what I’ll play that game and I just ordered what I should have in the first place. So I had to ask her to take my plate away because she wasn’t going to apparently. She walks away and maybe two minutes later she brings out my same plate! She says to me “my manager(who never came to the table to discuss this) said there’s nothing wrong with my food and I will still have to pay for it and wasn’t willing to complain the meal! Lord today what is wrong with people?!
