Exceptional as always. The chef is creative, the food is delicious, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Best restaurant in the area in my opinion.
This was our first time trying Ahso and unfortunately it will be the last. We waited over ten minutes to get a waiter at our table and it took 25 minutes to get our 1 appetizer. The waiter never came to ask about drink refills or if the appetizer was any good. Another waiter stopped by to get our entree orders (4 basic tacos) and after 20 minutes he told us he?d check on the status of the order only to proceed to the bar and start serving drinks. After a few minutes I flagged him down, he looked at me and looked away. All the while, people next to us who came after us had already been served their tacos and were done with their appetizer and meal by this time. At this point I went up to the hostess stand and asked her to cancel our order and give us the check for the app and drinks. Mind you, it wasn?t crowded or busy to the point where our waiter couldn?t stop by at least once to tell us where our meals were. I don?t have a problem with new learning staff, busy times, or order mix ups. I?m always cognizant of the times we are living in and try to lead with compassion but this experience left me feeling dismissed and invisible. What I have a problem with is complete disregard of me as a brown woman by the two male waiters(twice) with no explanation as to why it was taking too long. My experience with Brambleton restaurants has been mediocre at best and this one adds to that list.
We visited AhSo for the first (and definitely not last) time today. We are fairly new to the area and are so glad to have found this amazing restaurant in our neighborhood. From the food and drinks to the ambiance and service-everything was great. My husband and I had the wine pairing dinner and we loved every course. We found that the wines paired perfectly with each course. We dined with our 9 year old and he was equally impressed with his meal. We cannot wait to return!
I had the opportunity to dine here a few days ago 5-17-22 (Taco Tuesday). Upon arrival, we were seated. We waited slightly longer than 5 minutes for a server when there were servers just walking around. This irritated me, I spoke with the Manager. He had someone take care of us. When the server arrived, he was Excellent...Now, the food..we ordered tacos, duck wings and chips and salsa. The salsa was a lacking a little flavor, the duck wings were very good and so were the tacos. All things considered, the food was good with the exception of the Salsa. The Manager did adjust the check to compensate for the delay in service. I would revisit this establishment.
The food was well prepared. The atmosphere was quiet and the waiter was knowledgeable about the menu. We went on taco Tuesday and while small the taco ingredients were high quality. The crust on my wife's wahoo fish filet was a little salty without the puree. If you aren't a heavy salt user which my wife and I are not it may be a bit much. Cocktails were perfect. The waiter stated The King of Rock and Roll dessert was fabulous after I chose it. After eating the plate of peanut butter ice cream with brulee bananas and marshmallow fluff then candied bacon and chocolate sauce on the outside of the plate I agreed. Dessert would make me return solely for it alone. Sadly I didn't photograph it and it disappeared from my plate quickly.
We absolutely enjoyed this place and the superb food. Definitely going back. The waiter was so fast, friendly, and just kind of exceptional. When we left, the manager/owner? apologized for being shortstaffed and we were like 'What?'. I have never gotten this kind of service when fully staffed. Make reservations, they are busy and booked.
Love this restaurant! Five of us went here for a birthday celebration and reserved the Chef's Counter. This was an absolutely amazing experience! Jason, the owner AND chef, answered every question we had and made the experience truly special. The meal was phenomenal and my photos DO NOT do the appearance or plating justice at all. Phil the bartender attended our every need, and the meal concluded with a hand written menu of everything we ate. These were small plates well paced and tailored to our needs as one in our party does not eat red meat. If you are looking for somewhere to go for a special evening try Jason's Chef's Counter, and if you just want a great meal, go here any night. Thank you again for an amazing evening!
By far one of my favorite spots. Chef Jason is always working on the next masterpiece of cooking that will leave you wanting more. Drinks are great and there?s always something new to try on the menu. Staff is friendly and really know their stuff and love what they do. Must try!
