    Extremely slow service. Waitress was completely completely unattentive and food took forever. She charged us a 20% tip which is very likely because she gave such terrible service. Unfortunately a new experience for four people at the table and I doubt they will ever return to this restaurant. I’ve been here before and I have in the past had much better experiences, but sitting at the bar, I really do not like their policy of not splitting checks. It is not 1995 and it does not reflect customer service either.

    Ambiance was great. Food was generally good. Pita and dips were great. Carrot dish was great. Falafel was good but kind of dry and needed more sauce. Lamb skewers were amazing. The Tangine chicken dish was decent but unbalanced. Server was attentive but wish he would have helped clean the table between meal courses because it was getting a bit messy. Overall would come back.

    My husband and I have been meaning to eat here for a while and boy was it worth the wait!! We did the feast to get a sampling of the menu. The olives were my favorite mezze. We loved the falafel and all the dips. We had the chicken tajine and the chicken was a bit dry but the sauce was so flavorful. The baklava and butterscotch pudding put us over the top. Great overall.

    Five stars isn’t enough, everything from start to finish was fantastic. We went for Denver Restaurant Week and all four courses were perfect. The dessert was one of the best I’ve ever had. The halloumi was also another star of the night.

    Great food, poor service. For the price point that they are charging and including a 20% gratuity by default the service should be much better. Seems to be an ongoing issue with this restaurant group as we’ve had similarly bad service at their other restaurants.

    We loved the food, although the cauliflower was a bit over-cooked; we weren't charged for the cauliflower. The baklava was excellent. The room was a bit cool and the ambient noise a bit loud. But we'll definitely come back The service was excellent.

    We got their Valentine’s Day tasting menu, which was fantastic. At $55/person, we got four courses and plenty of food. The food was delicious!! The salmon paired with tahini sauce was unbeatable—unctuous and filling. The service was great, and we had such a great overall experience.

    Food took exceptionally long to come out and then both mains were cold. The potatoes and other garnish were piping hot so obviously an issue sequencing different elements. Disappointing on Valentines day to pay $40 dollars for a cold steak and fish -- I'm partially here because of a Michelin rating so I have a higher expectation. The preparation and flavor of the food was excellent and unique, it was really just the serving temp. Also want to fairly point out that the server / host recognized our frustration and and comped our appetizers which is the correct move so that's why it's still a recommend. Probably just an off night at a really good restaurant.

    4th time here, had high expectations after coming back 2 years later. Quality of the food seems to have plummeted. Prices increased. It was rather disappointing and very mediocre experience. How do you manage burning falafel? We tried cutting into the falafel and it literally shot off the plate into the booth seat behind us, it was hilarious. I’ve had good times here, but it seems the whole experience of what used to be Ash’Kara has died. RIP.

    We ordered the tasting menu to get a good feel for what the chef thought was best. Every bite was delicious! Started with a trio of baba ghanoush, hummus and labneh paired with pita, lahvosh, pickled veggies, and castelvetrano olives. The combination of the pickled cucumbers and labneh was my favorite! A sweet and tangy surprise that was well balanced. The second course consisted of latkes with duck bacon, falafel with smoked tomato tahini, and salad of greens, grapes and a vinaigrette. Latkes were the winner of this round! Perfectly crispy on the outside and buttery soft inside. The duck bacon was delicious and added the perfect amount of salt to bring the flavors together. By this time we were satisfied and didn’t need another course, but 2 more to go. This tasting really was an incredible amount of food for the price! Dinner consisted of wood fired carrots, za’atar roasted chicken and shiro bucatini. Again, amazing flavors and we enjoyed every bite! Final course: Apple cider sorbet and baklava. We took our baklava to go, and enjoyed the cider sorbet with coffee and mint tea. Sweet, tangy and smooth with bits of caramel - it was light and a delicious way to finish off the meal. Service was amazing. Our waiter gave great recommendations to start, and warned us of the amount of food to come with the tasting menu. He was thoughtful about packing up the leftovers for each course and storing them in the back. We left with almost an entire grocery bag full of leftovers and will continue enjoying it through the weekend! We will definitely go back. Ash’Kara earns its bib gourmand. Bravo!
