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.
