During this unprecedented times, it was a very nice dining experience at John Ash& Co.
All Covid protocols are being filled; we felt very safe during our visit.
The dining room and beautiful bar are closed, but the patio and exterior grounds are beautiful and being well used.
Our service was both professional and attentive.
We dined on freshly baked ParkerHouse rolls, baked Oysters with Parmesan Custard, Sweet Corn Soup, King Salmon with Blackberries and Grilled Pork Chop with Bourbon Peaches. Nice Chocolate Truffles were complimentary st the end of the evening.
If you are in the Santa Rosa area, you will enjoy an great evening here.

My husband and I eat out very often using Open Table because I always trust the quality of the restaurants they feature. This time it was a disaster!
First of all, the seating. We were given a table under an awning close to the exit of the restaurant with a lot of draft. I asked for a different table and was given a table on the lawn, close to their "pergola". I wished they had sat us their because it was very cold out in the open. There were other people seated there, but I didn't ask to seat there, thinking that since we had made a reservation, rather late, it was on a first come basis.
Our waiter, Thomas greeted us and brought us the bottle of wine my husband ordered and took our appetizer selection and left the table. At first I thought he wanted to give us time to relax before taking our entree order. That was nice, but he didn't come back. I was not only cold but hungry at the same time. So, my husband and I thought we would skip the entrees even though I wanted to order the scallops. I was so cold and the only thing I was thinking was to order a soup, but Thomas was nowhere by our table, so I flagged down another waiter and asked him to bring us 2 corn soup. Well Thomas must have realized he had ignored us and brought 2 soup spoons. He never apologized to us.
Being still hungry and cold, I ordered a strawberry shortbread and a cup of hot tea.
Very disappointed with the shortbread that was tasteless. It should have been sweeter. the strawberries were not very perfumed either.
The Maitre d/manager never came around to ask if we were happy. He might have been able to save our evening.
I can't remember having such a bad experience in an Open Table restaurant.
We will not come back.

Perfect outdoor setup for the current situation. Also - the beautiful setting was working in harmony with the lovely weather. The staff is always friendly, professional, and attentive. Last and definitely not least - they prepare both delicious food and tasty cocktails! It is always a pleasure to dine at John Ash. We’ll be back!

Love Happy Hour!!! You can’t go wrong with any of the food, but our favorites are the Fish Tacos!!! We had them everywhere, even at Tom Keller’s restaurant in Yountville, and they don’t come close to John Ash’s Fish Tacos!! My go to cocktail is the Rosemary Drop!! So glad you guys have outdoor dining!!Thank You🤗🌮🍹

Everything was first rate and emphasized safety. Our waiter(s) were great, the food was perfect, and the seating was wonderful.
The only sour note ws while we were leaving, a large group of 25ish year old partiers were entering with no masks on at least 50% of them. We were on our way out the door, but this group had made it past the front desk not wearing masks, and didn't appear to have masks to wear either.

My wife and I had dinner there with her sister and brother-in-law. The food was extremely delicious, and the service was very good. There are both unique and familiar menu selections, and the chef does a great job combining ingredients with the right herbs, spices and sauces. The menu selection presentations are photographic. Super Yummy too! The grounds are beautiful and the adjacent vineyards makes you feel like you're in Europe; enjoying casual fine dining, great wine and a very comfortable atmosphere/ambiance!
The pork chop & steak are delicious, but they also had great vegetable & pasta options, and an excellent variety of starters.

As always the food was fantastic and service was impeccable. Can’t recall our waiters name but he’s been our server many times during previous visits and he is FANTASTIC!! It’s alway a delight to spend time at JohnAsh and the outside garden seating has been a real plus to an already positive experience. Please keep it going even after this pandemic ends. We can’t say enough about how delightful the entire experience is. Many thanks!

John Ash was a wonderful place to celebrate my Birthday. The food is amazing and the Service is Fast and Friendly and Professional. They always know when to bring your next course. Never to early, never to late. They gave a nice Birthday surprise with mini Creme Brulee and strawberries.
