Nestled next to Vintners Resort in Santa Rosa, John Ash & Co. was the first Sonoma County restaurant to introduce the concept of cooking with seasonal, locally sourced foods and produce while pairing exceptional recipes with wines from the region.

Today, John Ash & Co. remains an icon for a romantic, fine dining restaurant with Executive Chef Thomas Schmidt continuing the standards of cooking excellence enjoyed by locals and guests alike. Chef Tom’s extensive wine knowledge provides the perfect foundation for creating innovative recipes that complement the restaurant’s extensive, award-winning wine list.

And because Chef Tom and his staff believe in making exceptional food and wine fun and approachable, even those who are new to choosing wines will feel right at home. Join us for dinner at our Santa Rosa restaurant and experience wine country dining at its best.

    Food was not very flavorful at all. Waitstaff was wonderful though. Overall a pleasant experience, but not somewhere I’d seek out again.

    Nice to get out - food is not "farm-to-table" at all. I cook way better. Why cover perfectly delicious shrimp and scallops with some kind of sauce that wasn't even that great. Let the real food come out. Everyone is trying to come up with all these over-the-top sauces that frankly can be simplied.

    It was an overall the best dinner I have had in a long time! Everything on the charcuterie was delicious. The perfect size for 6 people. I really enjoyed the house made crackers and chorizo. We shared a strawberry green salad and we ate every bite of it. Very fresh ingredients. My main course was the pasta with peas and cream sauce. It was one of the best pastas I’ve ever had! It was very simple but done perfectly! I did add on prawns to my dish for an additional cost. ($15) I really didn’t even need to order the prawns, the dish would have been just as good without. Dessert I had the lemon chiffon, out of this world good. I also finished the evening with an espresso martini, the best I have ever had. The only complaint I have is the price. We were enjoying ourselves so much the bill came and we were in a bit of sticker shock. It was Father’s Day though so at least we could justify it. I highly recommend if your looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion, I almost forgot to mention it is a relaxing atmosphere.

    Meal and service was fantastic. Unfortunately we sat next to someone who was a loud storyteller. It made the overall experience less than good. Disappointing that someone is not smart enough to realize how loud and obnoxious they are in a public area.

    Great service, taking care of the bottle I requested be at the table when we arrived. Great food, had some starts and the chefs rafting menu. Pork medallions had amazing flavor. Panacota dessert was also a highlight. Sat in the indoor back patio area and it was nice to look out over the vineyard
