This restaurant is a great place for a special night out.

I did not expect to find such a nice restaurant located on a side street one block up from Main Street in downtown Ashland. We were just looking for a place to eat but saw the good reviews in Trip Advisor and since it was in walking distance thought we would give it a try.

The building is an old farm house and is charming. The service was attentive and very good. We started with a gnocchi appetizer and the butternut sqash soup- both were fantastic. My companion always orders a filet, and said it was one of the best they ever had. I had the lamb chop and it was very good too. The wine list is extensive and they have received awards from the Wine Spectator magazine.

All in all, a great, but unexpected meal and a nice way to end the day.

This used to be our favorite place to go with our friends. We went often to their wine bar and often to eat in their dining room, front porch, and garden. However, things have changed. Now we go only very rarely and only if someone else suggests it. The manager has just not very nice to us, and the food fluctuates. It is a wonderful setting, though, especially the front porch and the garden in summer.

The "Lambburger" was awesome, my wife's "Little Wellingtons" were perfect, the ambience "Edwardian Chique", the service attentive, knowlegeable and fast. A wedding photo session was underway in the garden, providing great entertainment from our window table in the bistro. Found a delightful Sancerre at a great price. Happiness rules! A great dinner in Ashland.

We had an excellent meal here before the theater. It's an Inn as well, so it's in a charming building.

We chose this restaurant because of the awards it had gotten from Wine Spectator, and we believed we would be getting a spectacular dinner with incredible wine, a highlight of our trip. Unfortunately, the restaurant underperforms. The positive aspect of it was that we had a very tasty scallop entree that was very enjoyable -- beautifully prepared and presented. However, the appetizers -- one a grilled artichoke with dungeness crab -- were lackluster. Wine is always an individual preference, but between my husband and I, we did tasting flights of all of most of the white and all of the red wines presented by the glass, and found none of them very good. The service was not that great -- it was peremptory (we were in and out in about 1 hour 15 when we had hoped for a dinner to linger over), and the waiter did not seemed very interested in us or our experience. It may be that our disappointment was due to the size of our expectation, but in general, I would not got out of my way to find this restaurant again.
