    My boyfriend and I came here to try something new and it did not disappoint! He said he would come back just to get a table full of the shrimp wontons. Our server was excellent and attentive; the drinks were creative and delicious; and the food was incredibly good! We are even considering having our rehearsal dinner here because we liked it so much!

    Their ping pong and dining table rules make no sense. Reserved a table outside but in order to play ping pong (the whole point of going) we had to close out that table to move to another table in order to be able to play in another area rather than just having the table for us to play at. Was very inconvenient and didn’t make any sense other than to create confusion for us and the waiters/servers

    Ace Eat ServeResponded 5 days agoAppreciate you taking the time to give us some feedback on your experience! I apologize about any miscommunication and confusion on our end when it came to your reservation. We do have the indoor ping pong tables available to reserve on OpenTable, but I will definitely look into clarifying the verbiage for less confusion in the future!

    We got kicked off the ping pong table even though there were open ones. We ordered the daily fried rice special but they were out so we were offered a different fried rice and we’re brought something completely different to her was NOT fried rice. Our server fixed it but I personally felt it shouldn’t have been on the bill. Also she couldn’t follow instructions very well and as she never seemed to be listening.

    Our waitress was absolutely amazing, I wish I knew her name. But the food was great as well. We had the 2 different style wings (Korean and dragon) as well as the bao trio and it was all delicious. The wings had a lot of meat on them. The only downside is there weren’t many vegan options for the one vegan in our group.

    Ace Eat ServeResponded on September 18, 2022I'm so glad you enjoyed the bao buns and wings--the lucky dragon wings are my absolute favorite! I totally understand the let down when it came to the variety for the vegan guest in your group. Thank you so much for the feedback, Amy! I will share this with our staff--it is important to us that we get to know our guests and be able to confidently direct them to the yummy options that we do have available for them. Hope to see you again soon!

    Not worth your time unless you enjoy ping pong. WAY over priced food and drinks. Just do yourself a favor and order Asian takeout and stay home. It’ll taste better and save you money. Win win. Jake was cool tho.

    It was our first time here at AES and we will definitely be back!! The host and servers were very friendly and had amazing recommendations We started with the wings which were marinated with perfection. Like seriously, I’ve never had wings that good before! We got the Phat Wagyu Noodles with beef and the Kimchi Fried Rice for our main dishes. Talk about flavor!! It was sooooo soooo goood!!! We ended our stay with fortune cookies and the fried banana egg roll dessert. It was delicious and we will most definitely be back!!

    Unfortunately we had a negative experience with our server. After serving our table 2 Thai teas, we asked for a third. The third was NOT a Thai iced tea-it was Thai tea with ice-nothing else. I nicely told our server who said, “okay I will comp that for you.” Then no additional Thai tea was served….I said, I would like another Thai tea-not “a comp” without a replacement-this was for my daughter who would not drink it. Apparently that was too much to ask. Our server became short, reluctantly brought us another one and then presented our bill stating, “your hour is almost up, here is your check.” Are you kidding-we were a party of 7 which states in Opentable longer than 1 hour. Next thing I know, manager involved and a new server shows up. My family had a wonderful time, my interaction with the manager was fine-but it is soooooo unfortunate that one server can play such a negative role.

    Service was wonderful. Fun concept. Great patio. Food is hit or miss. Seems simplified for unadventurous eaters. Hits: potstickers, shrimp wontons, brussel sprouts and shishito peppers, wings, pickled cucumbers. Misses: kimchi, xiao long bao, pork bao.

    Adults enjoyed the food, kids not so much. Recommended by a friend to enjoy ping pong and was in walking to distance to hotel. Reserved table, but arrived to a private party in the ping pong area. Definitely recommend calling ahead to double check on the ping pong availability.

    The dining area is uncomfortably noisy. Hard to have a conversation without screaming. I tried to make a reservation for a Peking Duck dinner but the manager did not respond to my calls or emails. Service was mediocre. Food was well prepared, but too pricey. Will not return.

    We had a great time at Ace’s first drag brunch! We needed to change our reservation and also had multiple mobility devices to accommodate. The staff didn’t bat an eye and made sure we had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and even though they were just, the service was on point! We had been to Ace before but not for brunch. We will definitely be back!

    Had a really fun time at Ace Eat and Serve for our daughters 10th birthday. The food was different than what we normally eat but we knew that ahead of time and even our picky 6-year-old enjoyed the meal. I liked that were didn't have to check out anything for ping pong, kids could play while we watched and then we all played as a family. A little expensive but what isn't these days. Server was really attentive and knowledgeable. Would go back just for the naked wings alone!

    The food was fabulous, the wait staff was perfect, but the music when we got there was loud and the singer not very good, which made the loudness even less pleasant. As soon as the singer finished, we loved the rest of the evening. We would go back in a heart beat. The covered patio was awesome too.

    Ordered the Brussels and Shishito appetizer. It look an hour to come out, it came out with the food… def should have came before bc It was cold and there was one shishito. I was annoyed. I ordered the salad and there was I kid you not 2.5 cups of apricots. It just wasn’t good and our server was slacking hard.. rarely brought us water. The Aperol sprits were not made correctly. Don’t get me wrong I normally love ace but this was the worse I’ve seen it.
