    The timing of dinner was horrible. My wife and I ordered soups. My French onion soup came out five minutes before her cream of crab. Then, our entrées showed up halfway through our soup. So, by the time we were ready for our entrées, they were lukewarm. Then, our serve, approached us halfway through dinner, asking about dessert. There is a fine line between being attentive and pushy.

    I was with a party of 4 and 2 of 4 were satisfied with their dish. I had the Arnold Palmer Chicken. I must say it was the worst chicken I've ever tasted. The bread pudding on the other hand was very delicious. One guest had the Fish and Chips which she found good but unremarkable. Service was good and the staff was very friendly. I'm thinking of giving it another chance but I'm not rushing to do it.

    As always, the atmosphere and the service were excellent. However, the food this time was disappointing. The special was crab cakes with two sides - I chose smoked Gouda grits and rainbow carrots. The crab cakes were short on crab and seasoning; the grits were way overcooked. Next time I go there, I will choose salmon, a tried and true.

    We’ve been before and like this establishment. However, Valentines Day everything was off. My husband and I order from the valentines menu. He got the NY strip and I got the rock fish. The steak was overcooked & the rockfish was so bland. We were excited for our meal & it completely let us down.

    Overall 4 stars. I was excited to try the food and wasn’t disappointed. I had the crispy Brussels sprouts and the mushroom risotto. Both delicious and generously portioned. In our group, we also had the pot pie that looked amazing but was giving a so-so review by the eater who also said it wasn’t hot, and the tacos both looked and tasted great, but were very messy. The main drawbacks were that hostess was having some difficulties and made things awkward for 10 mins (wouldn’t tell us what the issue was - so after 5 mins we wandered over to the bar), and then she ended sitting us in the back with a large number of large parties. The service by Nicholas was pretty good for someone who had way too many tables/people. We ended up passing on dessert. The only dessert drink options were 4 variations of an espresso martini. They had changed out the hostess by the time we left and the main dining room had a nice ambiance, so definitely willing to give it another try in the future.

    The ambiance was great especially in the Ashling star room, customer service was amazing. The food tasted great I had a Rasta pasta and my friend had the salmon tacos we both enjoyed it . Only thing is that I wish we could have ordered from the happy hour menu deal but it’s only reserved for people at the bar 🙃 not a standard table. But all in all great food find !!

    My friends and I used to love Ashling Kitchen. It’s the spot we typically opt for on this side of town, but every time we’ve(l’ve) come lately the experience has decreased. There’s only happy hour at the bar, but the drinks take a very long time to come(15 minutes). They were good, but they ran out of Jamison(which caused one of my friends to stop drinking, which always affects the group). We usually get the brussels sprouts but after sending them back twice last time we opted for calamari which was so chewy we couldn’t eat it. The fried green tomatoes were good as always. My usual southern chicken sandwich was missing the fried onions on both orders(no one mentioned why). Overall our waitress was okay, but also very short at times. We decided as a group last night we weren’t coming back, which is disappointing.

    Expensive food and service for the quality. Plus a mouse entered the restaurant and scurried to the back room. The staff was able to catch the mouse with brooms and dustpan. Nothing was said to us, no apology, nothing. The whole restaurant was in commotion over seeing the mouse running the length of the restaurant. Not going back.
