would it be ok to ask my best friend what she thought if we started dating or should I just tell her I like her and would like to date her but not jeopardize the friendship? She just now started asking me to refill her drink when we are at family dinner or get her more food. I just can't tell if it's because she likes me or not.

You should just tell her that you're interested in her. Actually no.
It's better not to tell her. Show her that you like her.0

Be careful asking a friend about dating if you haven't gotten clear signs from them that they are interested. I asked a close friend (we had lived in a house together in college) about dating, and while at first she seemed receptive to the idea, she ended up changing her mind and our friendship ended up being pretty strained for a long time.
If it is something you want to pursue, I would say your better bet would be to start getting a little flirty with her (compliment her looks, mix in appropriate flirty touches, etc.) and see how she responds. If she seems to like it and plays along, you're probably good to ask her. If she doesn't seem to like it or calls you out for acting differently, then back off and know she isn't interested in anything more. It'll save you some heartache and maybe a friendship.1
