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.
Great place to dine...cozy setting & friendly staff. The owner is very nice and the food was delicious...
This was my first time dining in and enjoyed everything. The drinks were super cute and taste delicious. Service was 10/10. Good was great, I will most definitely will be back.
Ashling is definitely a hidden gem. My family and I went for dinner and it was delicious. There was a variety of items on the menu I wanted to try so I am definitely going back. The waiter was great and the music was a vibe.
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.
Excellent! Some of the best food in the area!
Great Food and drinks, will definitely dine there agai! Yes
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.
I loved the decor and the ambiance. Our waiter was wonderful and the food was delicious and well presented.
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.
I love the restaurant. Have been going there since they opened.
We had an amazing time and the food was great! One of the best dining experience I've had since pre-covid.
We happily returned to Ashling Kitchen better than I remembered from my last visit. I do miss their cute menus, but I hope they will bring them back when it is safe to do so.
Saeed, the owner, was very hospitable. He stopped by our table to check on us and shared some amazing stories about how Ashling came to be. Really enjoyed ourselves!
Had a wonderful dinner here on 3/10 and all six of us loved our food, and 3 of the 6 are very picky! This will be a regular for us!
Awesome food at a fair price! Servers are very attentive. The food was served hot.... with great flavors.
This was my second time to Ashling Kitchen and everything was perfect once more. The food here is amazing and innovative and the Ashling signature cocktail is delicious. They were quite busy, but the server was very kind and did a good job. I appreciated the manager coming by to check in on how things were going. The ambiance of the restaurant is good as well - I like how it isn't too loud. I also like how they offer a seasonal special menu, the Beef Wellington offered in December was amazing. We will definitely be coming back to Ashling Kitchen again.
First time visit for my family. We had the crab dip, shrimp tempura and Brussels for apps. All were delicious. For meals we had kids pasta, shrimp scampi, pot roast, ashling burger and steak frites. All were delicious except the burger did not live up to the price tag.
Service was wonderfully attentive. Manager came to the table more than once. They had a private function coming in that evening and it appeared they planned out the reservation very well in order to accommodate everyone.
I will definitely be returning with my family. Highly recommend for date nights, family dinners, and the private dining area looked fantastic as well.
When I walked in, I was asked by the hostess if we had a reservation. I did not. She responded in a snotty tone “we haven’t taken walk in’s in 2 months”. The restaurant looked dead so i asked if they had any availability for a reservation. She again responded in a snotty tone “no, we are booked for the evening”. That’s when I decided to check on Open Table. I was able reserve a table within the half hour. The hostess was obviously not thrilled to see us back. She sat us in the corner. There were plenty of other tables available. When a server finally arrived at our table she apologized and said the hostess never told her that we were sat in her section. Other than that the drinks and food were great.
Overall nice. Enjoyed what they did to the old space. Food was good. Ordered a Pork Porterhouse. It was not the cut that was advertised. It was a thick chop that was butterflied, not a porter. After dinner cordial was not served in proper glassware. The glassware is just a training opportunity, but the cut of meat was a bait and switch, intentional or not, or lack of knowledge in the kitchen. No issue with the chop (although it was butterflied), but change the menu to pork “chop”.
Danielle was a fantastic server - very friendly and knowledgeable. The hostess discreetly took temps and all parties were spaced out throughout the restaurant comfortably. The food was delicious! We had the shrimp and grits, roasted brussels sprouts and the rigatoni Bolognese with bonus leftovers for the next day! The Baltimore Mule and margarita were fantastic too!
A go-to for us.
The service was slow which was surprising considering the restaurant wasn’t busy. We ordered three appetizers, three entrees, an extra side of truffle mac and cheese, one cocktail, a glass of wine and a soft drink. We tried and didn’t like the truffle mac and cheese and sent it back. The manager told us that they were not going to remove the $6.00 truffle mac and cheese because it had nothing to do with the kitchen. We said we didn’t eat it because we didn’t like it. He proceeded to let us know that other tables like it and we had to pay for it. I have never experienced such horrible customer service before. I asked then manager if he was willing to lose three customers and potentially more because of his unwillingness to remove a $6.00 truffle mac and cheese. Apparently he is okay with the bad review and word of mouth. I will never return and would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
service with Todd was above what was expected! Will return to this hidden gem that we probably would not know about if not for the pandemic an open table.
My husband and I had such a wonderful time at Ashling. We had been to their food truck and were really excited to eat at the restaurant. The ambiance was on point- it was trendy without trying too hard. Candles at every table aided in the romantic ambiance. The food was sooo good- we had the Brussels sprouts to share, the vegan burger, margherita pizza and banana bread pudding for dessert. Our waiter, Todd, was great- highly efficient which is great in COVID times. We’ll absolutely be back soon.
The meatloaf was delicious! And our server was very attentive. I would come back to try more menu items.
The atmosphere was great. i got a poutine which was great. Being also from Quebec I have eaten that many times.
When I first went there I loved it. But these last few times I ordered a burger and fries either I did not get enough fries to this time where my burger was not seasoned at all it was very bland and my husband ordered wings and his was entirely too salty. I’m not sure if it changed management or cooks but I will not be returning.
Very crowded for Covid precautions. Server seemed overwhelmed. Food came with sauce (fish tacos) despite order to hold it. Overall pleasant experience evening but fell short of our expectations.
This is my first time at Ashling Kitchen, I have been recommended by many clients and my boss! Friday I decided to take my friend out for a going away dinner with my husband and my other coworker, at first our server was amazing he talked us up quite a bit. He was explaining all these different entrées and telling us that certain Ones were better than the other and then we had asked him about one of the ones he said wasn’t so good, So my husband was interested in the surf and turf, Let me just say for $40 it was not worth it it was terrible the fillet was thinner than a pancake and he couldn’t even eat the crab cake it was so fried on the outside and taste of like macaroni and cheese on the inside we were very disappointed. I didn’t think any of our food was worth it It didn’t have taste and it was COLD!! Later when we were finishing our drinks we felt rushed. I had walked to the bathroom and as I was walking back three young girls were talking about us and how they wish we would leave already... as well as the server we felt very uncomfortable and that we shouldn’t be there so we just got up and left and left our drinks! I will never go back to this place especially spending $200!
Excellent service!!!! The food was remarkable, will be back soon.....
Very good restaurant. Dinner was pleasant. A few good and delicious plates that evening, a few excessively salted and overcooked that same evening. A little more over all effort and Ashling Kitchen & Bar may become excellent 5 of 5. Today the best I can give is 4 out of 5.
Great atmosphere. Very clean. Waiters and waitresses are very good and attentive to your needs. Had their Valentine Dinner special. Yum.
The shrimp tempura, wings and drinks were amazing.
Never judge a book by it's cover! You might pass by this hidden gem daily, but trust me, it's worth the stop! The pasta dishes were delicious, they had amazing music, and the service was outstanding. It was the best Valentine's Day dinner we've had yet! Will definitely be back.
Always looking for a new restaurant in southern Maryland and the 45 min. drive from Calvert County to Ashling was so worth it! The romantic industrial ambiance made me feel like I was escaping to downtown Manhattan. The crab soup, fried green tomatoes as well as our main courses were outstanding, and our waiter friendly and efficient. We will definitely return!
We enjoyed a combination of the regular menu and the special Lentine’s Day menu. Everything was delicious. Only downside was our oysters weren’t shucked properly so they were hard to eat.
Food tasted very nice, but seemed a little overpriced for what was received. Also, the waitress we had was distracted and non-attentive to what we needed. We went on the evening of February 10th. Due to limited seating it would seem better service would be provided. I may give them another try at some point but it will be a while.
Time restrictions made it less hospitable than pre-covid
