Gorgeous Dining Room, Beautiful Views and Oh the Food!

We combined a dinner at the beautiful John Ash Restaurant with a mini staycation at Vintners Inn and Wells Fargo Center. We were warmly greeted upon arrival. Despite the fact that most of the diners had 6 PM reservations in order to catch an 8 PM Dianna Krall show - the service was perfect - not... read more

We have eaten here a few times and even stayed at the Vintners Inn and this was my worse experience. I know it's high end but By no means did it feel that way last night (8/15/15) and Maybe using a Living Social coupon had something to do with it. We even added the wine pairing ($35/pp extra) and the... More

My family and I have been dining at John Ash since it opened in Montgomery Village. It's at the top of our list for special occasions, with excellent food, service and ambience. Last night we joined the restaurant in celebrating their 35th anniversary. They have a special 3-course menu this week for $35, which is a great value. Our dinner... 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

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 been the... 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
