Second Visit

This was our second visit to John Ash & Co. While it was very nice it did not compare to the outstanding meal that made us return. Maybe our table inside did not measure up to the outside vineyard view table of our last visit. Or perhaps the tasting menu was not as enticing. Or it could have... read more

Conveniently on hotel grounds. Great service. Halibut was delicious and perfectly cooked. My husband had special of lamb and that equally good. Calamari was not crispy so a bit of a let down but the burrata cheese was yummy and interesting served with pine nuts, asparagus and golden raisins. Peaches were local served with house made gelato and sponge cake... More

I have loved this restaurant for 20 plus years. The food on the most recent visit was superb. Five of us had different entrees that we all raved about. It seemed to me that the portions were more generous compared to years past, which was a nice bonus. The side dishes and appetizers did not disappoint, either. We ordered one... More

We eat here all three nights that we stayed at Vintners Inn and enjoyed the small plates and the wine list was very good. One night I had the New York steak and the quality was poor, it was not tender and over priced for the quality, one of our friends had the same steak and it was the same.... More

We were a party of four for a dinner to celebrate my BD. I have long been a fan of this restaurant, following it to its present site from Montgomery Village in the 80's. The food continues to be one of the best in Sonoma County. Beautiful setting, nice interior, did I mention the food? There are menu choices for... More

We went the other night with 2 other couples. Its a beautiful restaurant with abundant outdoor seating. The bar was packed and looked like fun (we'll keep that in mind for future). Service was outstanding. Food was very good. I had the duck with Foie Gras on top. The foie gras was very good and the duck prepared medium rare... More

Been there a few times over the years, and the ambiance as good as ever, service fine, but the food missed the "kick it up a notch" factor. It was good, but the wow was missing this time. I'll be going back on my next trip, and hope that this "average" rating is just an aberration.

This restaurant was recommended as the best in the area. As the menu does have some quality choices, the food was not overly impressive or remarkable. As someone who travels often and enjoys dining out, this restaurant had great expectations but did not even compare to some hometown finer restaurants. The interior is gorgeous and the setting would be nice... More

The salmon was exceptionally tasty. I am not a fan of salmon and I liked it. The peach and Brown sugar dessert was unbelievable.
