“No apologies for reviewing again - its the best”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I reviewed ASK in Warwick about a year ago ("not exactly a delight") and then again six months ago ("Much better"), but no apologies for reviewing again - its the best!
Compared with much more expensive restaurants in and around Warwick, ASK is now the best for quality of food (consistently good) and service (in spite of new staff). We had prawns (starter) and risotto (mains) - excellently cooked (risotto had good balances - chicken vs mushroom, herbs vs garlic, touch of cream and nicely seasoned - even the right degree of 'bite' to the rice).
Staff were a bit under pressure, but coped well - there was a mistake over the wine which was graciously put right (no fuss, no trouble).
All in all, an excellent night out!

“Good quality chain Italian food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Have been to a few Ask restaurants and find this of the same good quality of food. The staff are generally attentive but it can be hard to get attention if the place is busy. The front of the restaurant is quieter than the back, which if like me you find it difficult to here in noisy environments is a better place to be seated. In summary good food at a fair price in a nice environment.

“Food not bad, service very mixed”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had planned to visit Ask on one of our two nights in the area, as we had eaten there before and had a good meal with good service.

The first night (Saturday), there appeared to be no real organisation and some confusion with the waiting staff when faced with potential diners. We were told (after a wait of several minutes in the entrance) that we would have to wait 45 minutes to place our order if we wanted to eat now (despite the restaurant being only half full!), but things should be quieter later in the evening so we were advised to return later. As we needed to eat there and then, we decided to look elsewhere on that night.

On the second evening (Sunday), things were much quieter and the service and food was good. One of the party needed a gluten free meal, and they originally had selected an item off the menu that seemed to be gluten free - when it was brought out and appeared to contain a sauce that had gluten in, it was no problem at all for a replacement meal to be brought out without the sauce.

The food was about the same as you'd get from any Ask - reasonable quality for an okay price.

Overall - not bad but avoid on busy nights.

“A tip for all restaurateurs”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

One of our meals was very good unfortunately the other (chicken) was well short of being cooked.
To their credit the staff dealt with this issue very well and were genuinely apologetic.
Thanks to the staff I would use again.
