We arrived in Sonoma County late yesterday day afternoon without a place to eat. We checked nearby restaurants and was able to get a reservation at this highly rated restaurant. The restaurant was beautiful. Sad to say our meal was less than satisfactory. Service was very good, so the server did not suffer. First, the good - the heirloom tomato... More

We arrived 45 minutes before our reserved time and they seated us with no hesitation . All four of us loved our entrees, including salmon, filet, lamb, and veal scallopini special. All were perfectly cooked and well sized proportions. Dessert also didn't disappoint.

Food was exceptional in elegant, but not stuffy atmosphere. Diverse menu with unusual selections (things we couldn't make at home) that were prepared perfectly. Liked the fixed price menu options too. We would go back and bring family or friends.

I noticed that my last review was written exactly three years ago. Since we visited October 10, I thought an update would be helpful. All I can say is wow! Jose was the perfect server and provided the perfect balance between the over enthusiastic and the laconic. Dealing with him was a pleasure. We wanted two glasses of the Carneros... More

There is no other setting like the one at John Ash. The food is carefully thought out and prepared using the best local ingredients. The wait staff is knowledgable and provides just the right amount of attention. For a special treat, don't forget dessert.

Laid back and warm atmosphere captured me and kept me wanting more. the food was very good and the staff attentive and professional. I still have my after dinner splash in my hand and thinking "that was really good."

We were staying in Healdsburg and decided to take advantage of the Travelzoo offer of $50 off $125 dinner. We were peasantly surprised. The dinner, service, and the setting were all excellent. Alan was our server and he came up with excellet suggestions.

We went to eat here before going to the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. I was so pleasantly surprised to find a full bar and a wide selection of wine, and fabulous food. We were fortunate to order lobster bites done escargot style for an appetizer, it was delicious!! Their menu varies, so you never know what great things... More

Great food, excellent wine list. We have dined here multiple times and always have been pleased. We particularly like rooms on their porch overlooking the vineyard (enclosed in cool months).
