My husband and I had walked all over Manhattan today as part of our three day visit to the city. We were looking for a nice place to get some good food and a drink. Ashley's Alley surpassed our expectations in every way. The food, drink and atmosphere were perfect. The menu has everything and is quickly served. The staff was warm and friendly. I've never written a review but had to for this establishment. We're going back tomorrow!

This place never fails to disappoint. Seriously. This place is perfect for you if you like: 1. Food straight off the Sysco Foods truck. 2. Inattentive service (no cheese on a cheeseburger, for example). 3. To pay more for snoozy, 1990's chain restaurant decor. 4. To be consistently underwhelmed. Otherwise, run, run away! The only nice thing I can say about the food here (and I've ended up eating here a lot) is that it's never given me food poisoning. Some options around here: For lunch at your desk: -Market Cafe on 53rd, between 3rd & Lex. Their turkey burger will make you cry. -Pompano Taqueria in the downstairs atrium of 805 Third Ave. For lunch out: -Social Eatz. -Bangkok Grand Palace over on 1st Ave. Walk a little further; reward yourself with Mango Sticky Rice for dessert. Can you tell I don't like this place? Do yourself a favor and go anywhere else.

Went on a whim and was totally surprised with the quality. Very comfortable both at the bar and the restaurant. Everything ordered came out nicely presented - from the flatbread appetizer to the steak, pasta and burger. The dining is more upscale - especially for a sportsbar. Would definitely recommend and return.

I stumbled upon this place a few moths ago and have been going back regularly. The food is always great, bartenders are always friendly and the staff very at-tentative. If you are a big brunch person this is also a good spot! $23 gets you unlimited drinks for 2 hours a meal and coffee.

This place looks great, however the food and service are subpar. I had the Fish and Chips. Fries were cold and stale, tasted re-heated. I can't believe deep fried cheap fish would cost over $20. I mean I expected the works, and I got a tiny side of tarter sauce and some old leafy garnish. Budweiser for $7? This place is a joke. THe bartender didn't even know what a Rob Roy is, pass!

What a great bar/restaurant in midtown, huge outdoor space, waitstaff, bartenders & managers. I had friends staying in the Waldorf Hotel on a business trip, I suggested Ashtons Alley to them as it is near the hotel. I walked in and was greated straight away,told the manager I was waiting on 4 friends she said she would find me when my guests arrived as the bar was crowded, nice after work crowd I went to the bar had a drink the barstaff were amazing. Even with a full bar they still had time to smile and make you feel welcome my friends joined me at the bar and we had a great time. We then decided to sit outside on the patio, what a great patio, never seen one this big in Midtown, we ordered crabcakes, flat bread, calamari for appetizers and I had a Cajun Rib Eye Steak for my entree at $26.00 it was a steal, my friends had swordfish, veal chop & peach scallop skewer. The wait staff and manager were so helpfull and nice. I have found my new hangout.

I went to Ashtons Alley on a recommendation from my hotel where I was staying. I was so impressed the food was out of this world. Service was wonderful. Overall a great experience.
