Delicious food, the halibut and 3 whipped types of butter were outstanding. Loved our Rose by the glass. Excellent service. Definitely a special occasion restaurant because not inexpensive. The garden bar setting looked lovely—want to sit there next time. A big group of around 15 young adults were in the garden, having a raucous time. Not to be an old grump, but it was a bit too loud and annoying—did not seem to fit the setting.

About the restaurant
Just minutes from Ashland, Medford and Jacksonville, our winery and tasting room are set magnificently on the forested foothills of Southern Oregon overlooking the Rogue Valley with views of Table Rocks and Mt McLoughlin in the backdrop.

We offer several seating areas each just steps away from the vines as you enjoy our award-winning wine. We produce Burgundian-style Pinot noirs and Chardonnays along with Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah, Zinfandel and Port-style wines.

You will experience a wide variety of culinary options prepared using the freshest seasonally available ingredients from our local farming and artisan community to complement your wine tasting experience.

The result is delicious! You’ll feel like you have been transported to Tuscany or Burgundy, or both!

-Please note that all reservations are for a two hour timeframe. We look forward to serving you soon!-

About the restaurant
Hearsay’s modern take on American cuisine and cocktails combines with the distinct atmosphere and music of the 1930s to create a space that is warm, inviting, and unlike any other in Southern Oregon. Situated just below the beloved Oregon Cabaret Theatre and a three-minute walk from the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Garden seating is based upon availability at the time of your reservation.  If requested, and not available we will place you in the dining room or lounge. Please note: pets not allowed in the garden. Thank you!

About the restaurant
We believe in living a clean, natural and organic lifestyle mirroring that of the old world, where people eat only local foods. Most of our ingredients are certified organic and we source from local farmers to promote sustainability. We want to showcase how fertile the Southern Oregon valley is and the amazing bounty available from local farmers.

We're excited to share our wine and food knowledge with Southern Oregon. We want to educate anyone willing to learn on wines of the world as well as how they compare to local wines. We will strive to constantly create new menu items and wine pairings.

Our waiter, Edward, described dishes we were considering with clarity and, I might say, tantalizing detail. The food was exceptional. We did ask for the music to be reduced - just a bit. What a great outing.

About the restaurant
Our family first arrived in America from Italy in 1927 by way of Ellis Island. I'm inspired by the traditional approach my Nona took to cooking in our kitchen growing up.

Simple dishes, the absolute best ingredients available, and a lot of love. I hope that comes through in every dish we serve at Pomodori, because is it what my Nona would want.
