Generally the meal was OK but no coffee available at the end of the meal and when we presented a voucher at checkout it wasn't accepted.

My last review was in October 2014, and was pretty critical. Dined here again with friends, who persuaded me that my previous experience was not typical. They were right to a certain extent - but it couldn't have been much worse than two years ago. This time, my food was adequate in terms of taste and quantity - but had... More

Fantastic food, every time I've been here the food has been great, the service is fast and the staff a very friendly, the decor is relaxed, whether you are out for a casual evening or a formal dinner ASK will not disappoint, I would really recommend the butterfly garlic prawns as a starter for prawn lovers, it's the best !!!

Visited here last week with my partner and four children. The restaurant itself has been redecorated since my last visit and not sure it is really in keeping – the walls were really busy with bold, clashing paper and the rest of the décor was a bit eclectic but did not quite hit the mark. Having said that it was... More

I feel that Ask in Watford is one of the nicest places for a civilised meal. The environment is good for couples and there are large tables for groups. It is quiet, so you can actually have a conversation over your dinner. Staff were helpful and did not push us to leave. I was catching up with a friend I... More

Having lived in Watford for two years I was surprised I hadn't made my way to ASK Italian before. However, after my visit I was left pondering a key question; why hadn't I heard of it before? The food was very delicious; rich and creamy just like Italian food should be. The garlic bread was mouth watering and they had... More

We had an early dinner at Ask this evening with the kids. Service was good. Did find that gap between staters and mains wasnt long enough. Kind of had the feeling that we were being a little rushed. However kids enjoyed their food. Quality was good and fresh. Nice wine and prosecco. Restaurant wasnt really busy for a saurday. Waitress... More

We called in on the off chance of getting a quick bite to eat. We were greeted by a friendly young man, who was only to happy to accommodate us.. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, even closing a patio door as it was near our table, and we were getting quite chilly. The meal was flavoursome, with our son... More

We went on a Thursday late lunchtime, they were still fairly busy but only had two waiters serving. Service was fairly quick, but the dough balls came without dip, and the waiters were too busy to attract their attention. The food was nice, although menu misleading when it states 'a touch of chilli' and I needed creme fraiche to cool... More

I dined alone and had the friendliest waiters. Ordered the prawn starter and the mushroom risotto main which I had previously shared and realised the portions are hugely generous. The restaurant was lovely, calm but busy with families and friends and a generally young set of customers.
