    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.

    Amazing food and service! A little pricey but well worth it. We ordered the salmon (which was perfectly cooked), the Denver Steak, hummus with fresh from the oven pita bread, and the baklava. All fantastic. Highly recommend Ash 'Kara!

    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!

    Having read that this was Michelin Star eatery, my expectations were high. The service was very slow and the food was honestly just ok. The portions were underwhelming and I ordered a dish that included hummus but was not offered any pita bread to eat it with. Not sure Ill go back.

    My partner & I celebrated our anniversary at Ash'Kara & had a fantastic experience! The food & drinks were incredible! So fresh, colorful, & delicious. We ordered cocktails/wine, appetizers, an entrée to share, multiple sides, & a dessert and devoured everything. The service was prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. Our bill at the end was reasonable for the amount & quality of the food we enjoyed. The restaurant was cute, clean, & not too loud or busy. Overall, we're looking forward to returning!

    We are first time diners and chose Ash’Kara based on Michelin recommendation. The server was very conscientious about advising us on dishes to avoid based on a diner having a nut allergy. This was much appreciated. Our meal was fantastic and service excellent. We will be back.

    We had a fantastic experience at Ash'Kara! We ended up getting the Feast and it truly was. Every course included generous servings of creative, diverse foods. We ended up absolutely stuffed and content with plenty of delightful leftovers. Our favorites were the roasted carrots (I'm not even crazy about carrots, WHAT), the latkes, and both desserts (a pear sorbet and baklava with date syrup.) However, all told we tried probably a dozen different things and loved everything. The service was warm and attentive - our server was so kind and made our experience great. The restaurant itself is a bit lively so if you're looking for somewhere quiet, this is not that, but we still could converse easily. All in all, this was a top-notch experience and we will definitely return soon.

    I wasn’t overly impressed. Everything came alone so you had to order pita separately which we ended up running out of. We kind of felt for the price it should come with that. Really pricey for what it is. For example the carrots were $20 which seems excessive for carrots. The service was pretty slow overall. They do add a 20% tip. We had a group and everyone was pretty underwhelmed and thought it was overpriced. Two had been there before and mentioned it had changed and prices had gone up. I do not think I would ever go back.

    I had really high hopes for this place. Sadly, the experience didn't really live up to my expectations. The good: the hummus here is something special. It was so delicious, especially with the fresh pita. I had the lamb, which was flavorful and tender. The decor and ambiance were lovely, and it was a very calming atmosphere. The meh: My partner had the roasted squash, which he didn't love because the skins were still on and pretty bitter. He also said the actual squash didn't have a lot of flavor. The bad: the service was pretty embarrassing for them. Our first server seemed really unhappy to have us as a table, and even though we got there during the last 15 minutes of happy hour, she avoided our table until it was 4:59. It just took so long for everything to happen (the restaurant was pretty empty at the time). We asked for more pita bread and it took 15 minutes to get to our table. My friends brought a cake for my birthday, and we were told the cake-cutting fee was $2.50. Not bad at all, right? She neglected to tell us it was 2.50 A PERSON. We were just there for so long waiting for food and the bill. By the end I was just ready to be out of there. I guess I would only recommend this place to someone who isn't bothered by bad service and wants really, really good hummus.
