If I had to pick 3 places in Santa Rosa to eat all the time it would be John Ash, Monti's, and El Coqui. All very different places. Great bar - always excellent service. One night is free appetizers (I believe Thursday - but check online) and not the all you can eat "trough" kind, but the kind where they... More

John Ash & Co. is located on the Vintners Inn property in Santa Rosa. We finally got a chance to dine with them. We made a late (8:30) dinner reservation via Open Table on a Tuesday night for the immediately following Saturday. We were seated on their enclosed patio, which was very chilly the night we were there. We asked... More

We have been going here for years, and it never gets old. Always something interesting from the kitchen from Thomas (Chef), reasonable wines (for a high end restaurant), great bar and atmosphere. I had the special Pork Cheeks and my wife had the short ribs, both were excellent. The patio area seating looking out on to some vineyards is so... More

John Ash & Co have been in business since the 1980's and I've dined there many times over the years. Just went again yesterday for dinner and was impressed - as always. The atmosphere is comfortable, the bar is beautiful and there's outdoor seating when the weather is warm. We had a friendly and professional server and the food was... More

We had a lovely dinner in this Zagat rated restaurant in Santa Rosa. The food was very good and not overly expensive considering the quality. It helped that we received a $50 gift certificate because we stayed at the Vinters Inn as the result of a,special. Indoor/outdoor dining in a,beautiful garden completed the charm. Nice and reasonably priced wine list... More

John Ash is an old standby in Sonoma County for good food, but they can be a bit overpriced. In the last few years the owners spent a lot on refurbishing their bar, The Front Room (Kuleto designed it) and it is really a beautiful place to come for an after work drink and appetizers. They have a wonderful happy... More

Overall this place was excellent. Food service and ambience were incredible. The only negative I had was the wine pairing recommendations were only ok. Will definitely return again and recommend.

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.
