John Ash & Co.
We were celebrating our second wedding anniversary! This was such a treat! Everything was just what I wanted. They sat us in a beautiful room with glass doors. The view was stunning and dining room was elegant. I was very pleased with the service and the hospitality—full disclosure, I’m not always easy to please. They were wonderful! The food was amazing. Everything was to die for! I couldn’t have been more happy. Then to top it off, before the cheese and dessert course that we ordered, they brought a special anniversary treat—mini creme brûlée. What a treat the entire evening was!
Enjoyed the quiet. Service was great and not chatty! Very pretty and very classic.
Very good service, Our reservation was for later but they got us in faster and better view,great food
It was quintessential John Ash. Another wonderful evening!
The owners want to position this place as a high level restaurant. What we noticed is that it misses the main principles - good service, good food, and then good prices. The food was mediocre at best. The price level is definitely way higher than it should for the service and meal provided. First we were seated in the way that passing by people would almost hit the table. Service was very slow (took them about 7 minutes to offer water). The food is not good. Would not recommend this place to others.
We are just so lucky to have such a quality resort, and a fabulous restaurant in our sweet Santa Rosa. This is one of our regular spots, as well as the place we celebrate everything and take company. The restaurant is beautiful, with their own garden and literally in front of a vineyard. It feels like a place you have been before and somewhere you don't want to leave. This is a take-your-time kind of dining experience.
This time we just needed some reprieve from all the stress of the week, so we decided to treat ourselves to a little John Ash & Co.
We arrived, and were enthusiastically greeted by the hostess with an authentic, welcoming smile.
We sat inside as a result of the air quality from the fires, and were seated at a lovely corner table.
Josh, our wonderful server promptly checked in and we started with one of their specialty cocktails, Top Manhattans-they were perfect!
Amuse bouche was presented, bread served, and we can never pass up the oysters here: they are Always fresh, buttery, and delicious. Next, we had salads: I always get the roasted beet salad with vegan cheese that is amazing! My husband had the butter salad that melted in his mouth.
Next, our entrees of scallops and the vegan curry followed: both were delicious. The seafood here is consistently fresh and yummy.
Finally, we shared the cheesecake and a brandy.
This restaurant has a team of exemplary professional chefs, the pastry chef is creative without losing sight of how to make dessert worth waiting for!
Thank you John Ash & Co.
The service was outstanding but I was slightly disappointed in the food and the portions for the price. My wife ordered scallops and there were 3 on the plate, that's really not enough. I ordered the spare ribs and they were great and a little lacking on the amount.
An outstanding dining experience. The room was beautiful, the service both friendly and attentive, and the food consistently inventive and flavorful. Recommend it highly!
One of the nicest places in Sonoma County. My most recent visit was with out of town guests who really enjoyed the place and the food. The location is also a plus as it is central and a mere three minutes from Hwy 101...easy to find and ample parking in front of the restaurant. Magnificent covered outdoor dining area and very nice views throughout the place. Warm, comfortable, nice service and very good food.
I’m away for work for a few months and my wife and I decided to have a “virtual date”. We both chose a nice restaurant in our respective locations and we used FaceTime to make it feel like we were physically together. I explained my plan to the restaurant via the notes box on the OpenTable app and when I arrived, everything was just as I had requested! The food was great and the ambiance was amazing! Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating and they didn’t make me feel weird for my request. Special thanks to the hostess (didn’t get her name) and my waiter, Josh!
this has been my all time favorite for special occasions for over 20 years. was there celebrating my 61st bday! fun and wonderful night!!
Excellent food, olive crusted swordfish was so very good. Beef carpaccio was also excellent.
We arrived early for our reservation and decided to wait In the bar and enjoy a cocktail and apps. The service was fabulous and my vodka gimlet was the best. The bartender says the lemon drop is their signature drink and that too was delicious. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic dinner. We enjoyed a rib eye and veal, wedge salad, lobster bisque, cheesecake all were excellent. Thanks for a great birthday diner celebration for my husband.
The presentation of the food needs more attention. The dish ware is old and outdated. Hard to enjoy a meal when the plate is too small and crowded and food spilling over.
My Fiancé and I loved everything about this restaurant. The food was amazing! I ordered the Beef Fillet and 3 scallops, I received the beef fillet that was cooked medium rare as requested but super charred on the bottom and 3 prawns. The waiter quickly went back and replaced the prawns with scallops and I was fine eating the steak as is. My Fiancé ordered the Brick Chicken and we both loved it! The sides were all delicious! Will highly recommend to any one dining in the Santa Rosa area!
The food was well prepared and served with a bot of flair. A bid pricy but well worth the cost for a nice meal in a very nice restaurant.
John Ash is always a winner in our opinion. We can never find anything to complain about ) not that we want to) except; the noise level at times becomes overwhelming but usually only in the Front Room and this time in the dining room. Initially we failed to notice a table set for 10 people when we were seated next to it. Always a danger sign. Should have been asked to be seated far away from it. They lived up to 10 people making noise! The American way. Not John Ash's fault. We long for nice restaurants in Europe. People keep their voices down and everyone can hear each other which results in an enjoyable experience. J.A. Our favorite restaurant in Sonoma County.
John Ash offered a nice combination of delicious food, solid service and an impressive wine list. All of this combined for a very good, but perhaps short of exceptional, dining experience.
Excellent service and location.
We had a very nice evening
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food and service! We were pleasantly surprised based on other reviews.
Excellent food, attentive service and a beautiful view of the vineyard, definitely the place to go for a special occasion!
Very nice dinner
Food was excellent
A great way to spend our 30th wedding anniversary
Our party of eight had a wonderful evening at John Ash. Very good food, each dish was perfect. Our waiter was a real treasure and we thoroughly enjoyed his service. A very relaxed meal ina beautiful setting.
Thanks John Ash
We had cocktails in the bar before dinner. Mia Cara was delicous. For dinner we had the fig appetizer special - it was delicious, of course, figs and goat cheese couldn't be bad. The main course was shrimp and scallops - and it was great. Two of my favorite foods. We had a special dessert - carmel bread pudding for the table, and even though we were all full, we managed to finish it!
(I think my first may have not sent)
Beautiful setting, inspired food and great service!
Every time we eat at John Ash we know we will have an excellent dining experience. This time was no different. Always look forward to having a fantastic meal at John Ash.
We chose John Ash for our 5th Anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. From the beginning with hostess, Kayla, and our whisky sipper in the front room to amazing dessert and sparkling wine it was a very nice evening. We would definitely choose there for another celebration.
As alway, John Ash delivered excellent food, attentive and professional service by Josh and team. This is a great place to celebrate, whether a special occasion or just to celebrate life!
We started with oysters, then had a cheese plate-divine!
Fresh bread was regularly replenished, salads were perfectly prepared vegetables from their garden to meet a perfect cram to table experience.
Corn soup with lobster was simply divine, and the drinks were creative and delicious
John Ash Rocks
We were fortunate enough to have our favorite waiter Steve this evening. Everything was perfect. We’ll be back.
It was the perfect location to celebrate a double anniversary and a birthday. Food was delicious and staff was wonderful. Highly recommended for those special occasions or for any occasion 😊
from the amuse bouche delight to the also complimentary chocolate truffles and everything in between, John Ash is always fabulous. We had oysters, cheese plate, chili rellenos, risotto, and the vegan beet salad: all were simply perfection on the palate.
Enjoyed excellent food and service by Josh. Very professional. Food was tasty and beautifully presented.
Top class restaurant in an exclusive location. Excellent food and lovely atmosphere. Each course is a surprise!
Delicious entrees, great wine list and attentive service.
This was our second time visiting your establishment. My husband enjoyed the speciality entree - a bone in prime rib - over all good although it was a little on the fatty side. I enjoyed the salmon. Unfortunately, it didn’t agree with me and I woke up 6 hours later running to the restroom where I spent most of early part of the morning.
It was somewhat annoying closing out our check, because our server nor the MOD didnt know how to properly process our Travelzoo voucher. It literally took us 45 minutes to finally leave after we finished dinner.
Overall, a nice experience but most likely won’t be returning. The food is ok and the ambiance is nice but definitely on the pricey side which is why we only can come when we have a Travelzoo voucher.
This restaurant has been an all-time favorite and it never disappoints. It’s always an amazing culinary experience. If we didn’t live on the east coast we would visit John Ash & Co. every month.
Beautiful dinner spot for the start of our anniversary vacation. No regrets. Would definitely go back.
Always wonderful food was terrific .everything was great"
My husband and I had dinner on Sunday night. The chef's tasting menu was wonderful and we enjoyed the wine parings. The service was exceptional and they checked with us to make sure they were not rushing us through the courses or the wine. We will definitely dine at John Ash & Co. again.
