Brought friends for first visit last night and not as good as we had come to expect. Blood orange salad was tiny (for $12) and extremely salty, Brussel sprouts undercooked and I noticed that our guests had left food on their plates, not a good sign. We're looking forward to the sister restaurant coming to Rozzie, please keep the quality... More

We went back to visit (this used to be our neighborhood restaurant when we lived in Boston) and it was just as great as ever. Yellowfin tuna, jerk mahi mahi, mezze platter, and the chicken special were all fabulous. You can't go wrong here!

My husband called and made a reservation for 6 people and the reservation was not recorded. My husband's clients arrived first and the reservation was not done but the host sat them right away at a nice corner table. Beyond that little mistake, everything else was really, really good. Drinks, appetizers, meal and desserts. The service was great with a... More

They use house ground beef which makes it possible to have as rare as you like it. And not to mention Thursday's are buck a shuck oysters, shrimp cocktail and clams.

We went here spur of the moment late Saturday afternoon. We missed the crowd and got to enjoy chatting with the bartenders. Andrew is fantastic. We had a great meal - made all from locally sourced ingredients.

Ashmont Grill serves a great lunch. The salads, burgers and fries were excellent as was the soup. Our server was slow and inattentive but the food was good. Recommended if you are in Dorchester.

This is my usual go to spot when I want to impress - took my sister-in-law for brunch on Sunday and for the most part we were pretty laid back and there was only three of us. The server was present that's about the most I can say about his service. I recall someone said after he greeted the table... More

A neat area and it has the potential to be a great place. Wait staff is very friendly but not too efficient. The food was good especially the salmon salad. The caesar salad with chicken was only okay.

The burger was well made with a distinct taste of grill, and the cranberry cider was excellent! Environment was average. Near T-station!

Ashmont grill reminds me so much of my favourite restaurant in Dublin, Union 8.. It's a wonderfully friendly and reliable place with excellent food. I love the burgers there and the specials are very imaginative... Ashmont Grill is a Dot guaranteed good night out! I live between Boston and Dublin & constantly compare the two cities. I wish we had... More
