There's a new (Summer, 2014) chef at the Peerless, and to pervert Bob Dylan's lyrics, "the last one now will later be first." We had put the Peerless off our list a few years ago because the food was pricey and just "Ech." This year the Peerless is on the top of our fine dining list. The tastes on the... More

I wanted to give all excellently, but the waiter made too many errors...big ones. My daughter asked for a suggestion for a dry white wine. The waiter said the white by the glass was available by the bottle and very good...it was way too sweet! My daughter's boyfriend ordered the short ribs, but was served the lamb. At 9:00, he... More

The Peerless has just hired a chef from Hawaii. Excellent food with an Hawaiian flavor. Recommend the sampler with two sliders, chicken wings, hummus and pita bread or the short ribs. Fresh Hawaiian Fish flown in daily. One of the downsides is the noise. The bar is in the restaurant and it has a very popular Happy Hour. The noise... More

We really wanted to like this restaurant. We sat outside and it was lovely. Unfortunately, our waiter had a bit of an attitude. We ordered from a really nice variety of small plates. We did enjoy the meal though.

Great wine selection, unique menu - good for vegetarians & carnivores alike. I've returned here a number of times; I've never been disappointed.

We had dinner one night during a visit to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival at Peerless on Fourth Street. We ate on the restaurant’s patio, enjoying every minute of it. My husband had Washington state oysters—they are smaller than Chesapeake or Normandy oysters, a chilled melon soup, and a golden beet salad. The beets, with general consensus from the others had...

This restaurant is supposed to be the most upscale restaurant in Ashland. Sadly, the help doesn't help that reputation. Our waiter had greasy hair, bad teeth and three days of stubble. He was overworked, and overwhelmed! He made a mistake on our bill. In addition the cook didn't listen to our request that the salmon be cooked well. It was... More

Probably the best meal we've had in our many years visiting Ashland. Just a block and a half off of Main Street in an area of cute shops, about 10 minutes from the theaters. We sat inside looking out on their large outdoor garden seating area (it was raining). Warm, elegant dining room. Their menu is very flexible: lots of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Peerless Restaurant. The day was warm and the garden area was perfect with enough shade from umbrellas to make it comfortable. We were never rushed and enjoyed a long evening in the fresh air. The perfect place to be. The menu had an excellent variety of meals, including the small plates that my husband... More

Few vegetarian choices...but the food/value ratio is very low. Waitstaff was good, but front of the house could care less - and I was there with a party of 5. Try another restaurant and save your $ from this place.
