Went on a Sunday; great burger and Fries for a great price. Happy hour beverages at a reasonable cost. Service is excellent and friendly and the room is very comfortable. On nice days, you could be outside on the patio. the flowers and outside gardening is beautiful.

Had reservation for a group of 10. Were seated right away but from that on it went downhill. Had to wait to order our food and between appetizer and entree we had to wait over an hour!! Waiters excuse was: "we are very busy" Not what you expect from a fine dinning restaurant.

Food is great for carnivores not so great for vegan or vegitarian. Great bar and awesome happy hour. The oysters are wonderful as well as the filet mignon. A local Cabernet or Pinot noir is always a wonderful companion to your meal and the wait staff is very qualified to point you in the right direction.

Ever changing menu, impressive cuisine, nothing better in Santa Rosa than John Ash. I simply love the atmosphere, service and everything about our dining experience at John Ash.

This restaurant & bar has a truly elegant atmosphere- one of only a very few in Sonoma County. The service is impeccable, and our servers (Limber & Jose) are first-class professionals. The lighting is good, and the noise level is never too high. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner. Perhaps some soft background music could be added to... More

Went there with a group of friends after a day of wine tasting. Expensive for the quality of food. Kitchen service was horrible. We were seated at 715 but did not get to place our order until 30 minutes later. 1 hour and 45 minutes later we complained to the manager about not getting served. She never followed up with...

In the San Francisco area one can be very spoiled and become jaded considering the abundance of great local food. This was an lovely restaurant--beautiful décor, roaring fire, nice menu and wine list. Maybe not fabulous...considering the company it keeps but very good indeed. If you are in the area and are looking for something a bit special and dependable... More

A beautiful restaurant, especially at Christmas time. Their happy hour menu is delightful! The fish tacos and Rosemary nuts are so good! Just recently had dinner there and I have to say I was a bit disappointed with what I ordered.
