Get cozy and stay awhile at the Ashmont Grill
Theres something innately appealing about a restaurant that has milk and hot dogs on the menu alongside more upscale offerings such as espresso, grilled squid with spicy aioli, and a flourless chocolate torte. It says: We want you to be c...

Ashmont Grill Reviews and Information - restaurant reviews and dining recommendations - Boston.com

It's hip, it's diverse, it's in Dorchester
The story of Ashmont Grill, the new shining star in a gritty part of the city, reads like a made-for-TV movie. Chris Douglass, the respected chef-owner of Icarus, the upscale South End restaurant, decides to open a place in the Dorchester nei...

Beware! Went once, havent been back. Its overpriced trendy food. The wait staff are the investors incompetent relatives. Although Im an Ashmont Hill resident, I travel over to CF Donavans for dinner and drinks - not as pretentious and gr...

The Ashmont grill is certainly the in-place to go in the Ashmont Hill area, and the look and feel of the place is great. However, the food is overpriced and not that great. Fifteen dollars for a slice of vegetabl...

Dorchester has been in need of a restaurant of this type and quality, especially in the Ashmont area. The food quality, selection and presentation is excellent. Prices are a little high by the end of an evening, but it is wor...

We were excited it finally opened and went in the 2nd or 3rd week it was opened. Service was beyond POOR. They couldnt/wouldnt accommodate (after a 1hour + wait) a request for a salad without cheese on it. After almost 2 ho...

I think its amazing that all the reviews by customers are iffy at best and the restaurant reviewers gush about the place. We went to the Ashmont Grill last night and I have to agree with the CUSTOMER reviews and question th...

The quality of the food was good. Unfortunately the value was not. The prices are too high and the portions are too small. A $145 bill for three people (before tip) was much higher than the food warranted. I...

This place has a ton of potential, but still has a lot of kinks to work out. The outdoor patio with the firepit is nice, as long as you dont mind smelling like you were at a campfire by the ...

I have to say that I agree with the critics and not the negative reviews. My husband and I just had breakfast at the Ashmont this morning. The space is quite beautiful, the service was very warm, efficient and friendly, and...

I have been to AG 5 times now. Food quality is very uneven. Some are excellent (esp. the blackboard specials) while others are totally tasteless. I was served chicken wings that were both unforgivably bland and raw at the bone. T...

The food is overpriced, skimpy in portion and the staff is so rude and/or unimformed about the menu, it makes you wonder why you went out in the first place. They should stop patting themselves on the back for trying to gentr...

This place is horrible! We ordered a pizza that arrived practically raw. When we mentioned that to the waitress, she curtly told us to order the pizza well done next time. There wont be a next time. The food is below...

Well WITH regard to price and ambience my friends and I went to teh Ashmont Grill. I cannot even fathom how they can describe themselves as moderately priced. All Entrees are served ala catre (sans sides) and when you finally do...

I live in Adams Village and take some offense at the description of the neighborhood as scary. Though its not the best neighborhood in Dorchester, its far from being either dangerous or scary. SCARY is that after a one year...

We dined at the Ashmont Grill once. It was passable. The review by the poster MRJ below makes me think that employees of the restaurant are posting here though. A bit over the top. The Ashmont Grille WAS a bit p...

The idea that this is supposed to be a friendly neighborhood restaurant is an absolute joke. The service is rude from beginning to end. The food is mediocre and over priced. We had a bad experience with a rude hostess a...

Ashmont Grill, Boston - Restaurant Reviews - TripAdvisor
We've been going to the Ashmont Grill for several years now, on average once a month to every other month. It's menu changes seasonally and we love that it focuses on local and organic ingredients! The staff has had low turn-over, and it's nice to see the same faces who are always pleasant. That say...

Ashmont Grill - Boston Magazine
Like any food lover, Chris Douglass, of Icarus fame, is always on the hunt for the perfect local restaurant. You know the kind: friendly, inexpensive, reliable, close to home. But he could never find that sort of place in his Dorchester neighborhood. So he opened one himself. The Ashmont Grill is a ...

Ashmont Grill - Boston Area Restaurants - Zagat Survey
Since I live in the neighborhood, I take offense to WolfieMan's comments. Every neighborhood can be dangerous at night. Have your eyes open, but that goes without saying in the city! Parking along Ashmont, Dot Ave and Talbot Ave is plentiful - you won't be walking more than a block at most. The food...

Ashmont Grill Restaurant Dorchester Ctr. Boston MA Reviews Gayot
Call it Icarus Lite. Or, better, Icarus: The Sequel---in which our winged hero opts against flight altogether and just kicks back with a beer and some munchies. Such is the concept of this American bar-and-grill in Dorchester, a labor of love from chef Chris Douglass, otherwise known as the owner of...

Ashmont Grill - Open Guide to Boston: the free Boston guide
Although The Ashmont Grill bills itself as a neighborhood bar, the style of food -- and certainly the prices -- makes it hard to believe the neighborhood they're thinking of is Dorchester. Everything is served a la carte, so the prices seem reasonable at first. However, a burger and fries will cost ...

We eat here 3-5 times a month and have since it opened. Not complicated food, but good bistro quality, with a commitment on local sourcing and organic choices. We find the mac and cheese, fish and shellfish, and hangar steak are reliable choices. Nice urban vibe, great outdoor patio area in season, ...
