Lovely setting, interesting plates

We had a relaxing pre-theatre dinner here. We sat inside with a nice view of the gardens. The service was prompt, and our dinner choices were delicious. Extravagant desserts.

Set in the heritage Hotel, there are tables both inside and out in the garden; choose depending on the weather. Inside has a/c, outside can be hot in the setting sun. Food overall is excellent quality, well presented, very good service by knowledgable staff. Focus on local ingredients; excellent Oregon wine list

A special Ashland experience. They get you fed slowly and nicely and get you out the door on time for the play. We ate inside, but the outdoors was very, very lovely - I'd insist on it next time. And I'd go when there wasn't a play making me rush.

We celebrated Thanksgiving this year at Peerless in Ashland, Oregon and would recommend it in a heartbeat. There was a fire in the fireplace, a full bar that served marvelous drinks of all kinds, and a really nice Thanksgiving dinner served with generous attention by our server. The restaurant was busy but never noisy so we were easily able to... More

Peerless is our first choice for any celebration. Hands down our family always says, "Peerless!" The food is impeccable and the service, well, the staff here treat everyone like they are the most special guest there. Cocktails are stunning and wine library the best.

The restaurant was suggested by a local guide who had not led us wrong with his other recommendations. We were delighted with our visit. It was relatively quiet which was a pleasant change from other restaurants in the area. The menu selections were imaginative and well executed. The waiter was professional and was able to discuss the menu options. Even... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Peerless Restaurant last June. There were four of us, and each thought the meal and service were outstanding. It’s fairly expensive, but worth it for a nice dinner out before a play or for a special occasion. My husband and I attend the OSF every year and plan to include one dinner at... More
