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 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).

I hadn't been to John Ash in about 20 years. We decided to go to celebrate our anniversary. We had a table out on the patio with a lovely view of the surrounding vineyards. It was a very warm, muggy evening, so it was a bit warm outside for me, but others were wearing jackets and sweaters. Our waiter was... More

Since 1978, my wife and I have been fans of John Ash, and we take visitors here to show off as well as pick it for a special... More

I only gave this a 3 star because the table next to us, there were 8 people, was so loud that we could not hear ourselves talk. They looked to have come from money. They were drinking and were being very loud and the staff did not try to assist us. It was a Thursday and there were not very... More
