The Peerless can be experienced in our relaxing dining room, friendly & intimate bar (Happy Hour from 5-6:00 Tues-Sat)or alfresco in our enchanting gardens. Our dinner menu features an array of small plates, as well as steaks, seafood and vegetarian entrees that capture the favors of the seasons and essence of the Pacific Northwest.

“Like an old home!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

An old favorite when we visit Ashland ; inside or outside food and service is good! We found the restaurant quite by accident more than 10 years ago.The plays in Ashland have always been great and so was the dining.We even cycled the countryside on our tandem bicycle a couple of times.

“A gem with...easy parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

One of the most fun, well-managed, delicious restaurants in Ashland. Great service, superb food and a very pleasant atmosphere made for a memorable night for the three of us. Mark, the manager, stepped up when it got busy and acted as waiter, sommolier and tour guide. Check out his suite of wine half-bottles. Very, very impressive (try the 2010 Woodward Canyon cab. Excellent!)

The garden setting was wonderful and the location, away from the hubub of downtown, is perfect. Parking? Right across the street.

We'll be back.

“Even on Rainy Evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We love the Peerless on a nice summer's eve. The patio is terrific, but even on a rainy day the deck was nice. Had many of the small plates and shared with our friends. Everyone enjoyed! The Oreo house made gelato was to die for!!!

“Could be name "Faultless"...so good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Was there a few years ago for wedding dinner. Superb then but dining on the lawn on a warm Summer evening is unsurpassed as you drink cocktails and enjoy their small plates. My pan seared steak was perfect as my dining companions enjoyed a filet and shrimp.

Excellent service.

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences in Oregon or elsewhere.

“Ruined my birthday!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Despite having made a reservation days in advance, had to wait 20 minutes for our table..... because people were busy eating dinner at our reserved table.

In less pricey restaurants, when I've made reservations, they RESERVED the table and made sure it was for me at the reserved time.

Then we had to wait another 25 minutes just to see our waiter.

The real "clincher" was the attitude. This was a birthday celebration and the waiter delivered a single candle stuck on an empty plate....WOW!

One bad decision after another.

I would absolutely NOT recommend this restaurant.
