I made a reservation at Ashling Kitchen for my wife's 40th birthday. They did not disappoint! When I made the reservation I checked the box that it was for a special occasion and when we were seated, my wife was presented with a personalized Happy 40th Birthday menu. Our meals were amazing -- especially the fried green tomatoes and steak frites. We love Ashling and will definitely be back again!

It was really crowded which made me very uncomfortable. However the food was delicious. We tried a few cocktails . The margarita was great, the recommended 19th hole was a definitely a miss. I would define go back and do outdoor seating

After discovering Ashlings a few months ago, we’ve been dining here at least twice a week! The food is outstanding - I’ll get to that in a bit. The service is great here, and it starts from the top down. The owner, Elise, is very kind and warm. Diane has been absolutely great to our family each visit, and checks in throughout each meal to make sure we have everything we need. While every server we’ve had has been polite and attentive, we’ve really been impressed with Todd and his service. Onto the food...my goodness it’s just fantastic. The Irish Whiskey glazed salmon is our favorite, especially paired with the risotto. The burgers are the best in town, the meatloaf rocks, the wings are always outstanding and we almost always split a French Onion soup! In short, we can’t recommend Ashlings enough!

We started with French Onion Soup and ordered two dinners off of the specials list, Curry Lamb Stew and Jerk Chicken. These spicy (even the FOS) and flavorful dishes are not for the faint of heart, but if you like spicy deliciousness, this is the place. Creative interpretations of some classic menu items (like the FOS), and lots of creative originals, including a variety of small plate apps, salads, sandwiches and premium burgers. A real gem.

What a wonderful restaurant! I dined here yesterday and my experience was wonderful from the time I walked in until I left. My party had the pleasure of having Jeff for our server and he was so great! An amazing personality, knowledgeable, friendly and had the perfect timing as to when to check up on the table. The decor is also beautiful. New, pops of greenery and industrial chic!

Now for the drinks, I enjoyed the Red Sangria and it was great! Not too sweet and it had a kick!

For the food, I had the crab cake sandwich with sweet potato fries. It was so delicious! Very little filling, the remo sauce was tasty and the fries were fresh and crispy. My best friends as the gumbo (minus crawfish) and it was tasty! Perfectly spiced. We also had dessert. She had the bread pudding and I chose the key lime pie. I wasn't a fan of the meringue topping on the pie so I requested to have the sorbet instead.

All in all, the food and experience were both top notch and we both plan on making this one of our go to spots!

Tried this place out for the first time. It's a nice "hidden" gem. The location is unexpected as I've passed this restaurant many times without knowing it was there. I went in to try a dish I saw from the online menu and decided to try something on the weekly special menu. The food was delicious and the portions were appropriate for the price. The only negative was the service was a bit slow. I think they could use another server or two, as the restaurant is small but outside of that I enjoyed my experience here and I will be coming back. I would suggest making a reservation and worth noting the establishment has very limited evening hours.

Our first time at Ashling Kitchen. Went for Easter dinner special. My wife and I were careful to choose different entries and sides that we might get to taste a greater variety. Everything was excellent. The pork loin with apple chutney was incredible. Wife loved the herb crusted lamb. Candied yams, southern style green beans, honey glazed carrots and garlic mashed potatoes all very good. Finished with slices of carrot and Smith Island chocolate cakes - neither disappointed.
The restaurant is very nicely appointed. The service was great. I think we were welcomed by the entire staff. Am looking forward to returning and trying what appears to be interesting entre options.

Food was very good. They really play up the fact that the owner catered and traveled with celebrities. Which is cool I guess, but the big map of all of the places she's been seems a little tacky. The pictures in the hallway to the restrooms is sufficient for "her" celebrity status I'd say. But the food was very good (salmon) and the menu is solid. Maybe a tad pricey. Also noticed that they charge $1 per person for covid fee. Not a big deal but seemed odd.

We had a lovely time. We were seated at a table near the bar and window. Music was way too loud. We had an excellent waiter. Hostess needs customer service training. Food was excellent except two of us who got the meatloaf felt the gravy was too salty. Meatloaf itself was delicious. Rest of the meals were very good.

We love this place and is now one of our faves to dine at. Everything about Ashlings is amazing! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious! We love the ambiance but noise level in the back is a bit loud. We were celebrating our almost 16 year old son who just finished 4 years of high school in 3 years and is now ready for graduation in June. We are extremely proud of our son.

The food is excellent. The service was fantastic. Beautiful ambience. A very nice date night for hubby and I. It is a bit pricey (we got two sandwiches, bread pudding for dessert, and soft drinks - total with tip: $60) but it was worth every bite.

Great place! Best kept secret in the area. It's in the perfect location tucked away from busier, larger shopping complexes. Customer service was outstanding! We were greeted and served with a smile and received prompt attention and responses to questions regarding our meal choices. The atmosphere was just right, considering the social distancing requirements. The food was well prepared and the specialty cocktails were great too. I look forward to experiencing the chef's creations over the Spring and Summer months. I will definitely return again soon.
