We come to John Ash & Co once a year for our anniversary. The staff, service, view, ambiance, and food are impeccable. My husband always enjoys a perfectly cooked steak here, and whatever pasta, appetizer, or soup I choose is phenomenal. The last time we were here, they had a cream of celery and apple soup that I made myself... More

The best deal is the happy hour. Wine and Sparkling for $4 a glass...and a decent pour to boot. And the bar food is exceptional. We had calamari (several orders), fish tacos, French fries and the mushroom ravioli. I let my wife drive us home.

We've lived in Sonoma County for over 25 years. The choice of restaurants is astonishing, with much of the credit due to John Ash & Co. In the many years since this restaurant set the bar high, many have surpassed it. Though the restaurant looks terrific, the food is disappointing for the price. Four of us dined there, and each...

I went with three fiends and we all had a great time, a good meal and a pleasant experience in a wonderful dining room. Our meals were very good but not great. All were very good, but none had that breakout exceptional title. Well prepared, tasty and good quality. I would go back again. Overall we had a good time,... More

I really hate to post negative material but I was asked by trip advisor to complete my post. We went on May 10 for a birthday. I was satisfied with my salmon and was definitely looking forward to the first wild king of the season. My husband ordered calamari appetiser and he said it was so greasy he took acid... More

The food was fab, even a simple burger was super. We loved it so much we came more than once . Drinks can be a little on the expensive side.

This is a mixed place to me. Some wild differences in the different aspects of this establishment. I'll break it out. Staff - Excellent can't say enough good about the waiters and waitresses and sommelier. They were fun, comfortable, helpful and just great. Speed - Horrible waited to the point of suffering for course changes and would not see food... More

which is a real shame. I was doing a 65+ mile bike ride the next day so I did a little carb loading indulgence. Gnocchi, anyone? Mine tasted great initially, but after the first bite or so the only thing I could taste was the butter it was drenched in. My main dish is forgettable--literally, I have forgotten what I... More

John Ash & Co and the Front Room are the best place to celebrate everything! We love the Avocado Fries and the Calamari with Thai Basil Dipping Sauce- always start every meal or happy hour there with these two items. There are always fresh products right from their gardens which takes the farm to table concept to the next level.... More

Seated in a noisy room of LOUD talkers, staff relocated us and the rest of the evening was delightful. Food was wonderful and delicious. Treated to a beautiful sunset added to a wonderful experience.
