Food was pretty good; setting on their patio was nice right next to the vineyard.

Service left a LOT to be desired. Had to ask for water refills more than once, which is a definite no go when you are paying these prices. Someone OUGHT to come by and check on you periodically. And maybe SOMEONE ought to come by and offer to refill the water occasionally.
Lots of great food AND service available in wine country at this price point, so I do not think we will be returning here.

We had a wonderful time at John Ash! The ambiance on the back patio/garden was perfect. The staff was warm and welcoming, even with stringent COVID protocols in place. We order primarily off of the bar menu and shared the dished. The Burrata, Lamb Meatballs, and Salmon terrines were excellent, but the home made Tater Tot's were the show stopped. They were outstanding and a perfect blend of creativeness and comfort food. We finished with the Pear Cake which was also outstanding. Overall an incredible experience, well done John Ash!

Group get together, fabulous setting outside & attentive staff. Appetizers amazing! However a large # of guests arrived in the midst of our dinner. This resulted in a pile up of plates & glasses & empty water glasses. We are in new y uncharted waters & grateful for the opportunity to dine here. Many thanks-

The garden seating was lovely! They’ve created a pretty ambience via the individual canopies and the twinkle lights. Every dish was delicious!! The wine pairings were perfect and the service was absolutely wonderful!! Happy 40th Anniversary John Ash! We’ve enjoyed this lovely restaurant for MANY celebrations over the years and you’ve outdone yourself on this one! Cheers!

Have loved this place for the food at a wedding and Mothers Day. This was very disappointing. Beginning salad was like a mediocre home chef with lettuce that had some brown and my wife's pear was brown on the meat side. Had a simple single piece of cheese. The Beef Wellington was cooked very nicely, medium rare, but it came with carrots that created a plate that was all the same color and not interesting or particularly flavorful.

This a beautiful restaurant with lots of lovely outdoor seating in wine country. The food was good, well prepared and interesting, but all of it was way to salty. Drinks and wine were great. We came early and the service was slow long before they filled up. By the time we were done with our meal we waited at least half an hour, on top of the time we spent eating without anyone checking in with us and asking about desert or letting us ask for a check. Clearly they’re understaffed. Finally we left money on the table and left with no check, and no dessert. Too bad because I’d like to sit there again, but not eat too salty food and spend so much waiting for service.

3:30 pm dining with roses and grapevines every where, very beautiful! Ordered too much food our favorite was the vegan cauliflower dish and the crazy good homemade tater tots. All the dishes we ordered were good! The dessert which was a pear cake with ice cream was so good it was dream worthy! I haven’t been here for quite a while because of covid and other circumstances but I’m coming back soon! The service was outstanding and sitting there with a glass of sparkling wine I felt like all was good with the world at that moment! Thank you for the experience!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at 6:30. We were seated on time. Our table was outside, which was perfect. The weather was amazingly fabulous for mid-October. Service (Eric) was great! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I met a friend at The Front Room for Happy Hour. I learned a few weeks ago that COVID restrictions allow you to make a reservation these days-- no more dropping in and hoping for a table-- which I love!

The seating is all outdoors in a lawn area behind the restaurant that is gorgeous! I love to see them using this space!! Surrounded by vineyards, and with table spaced at least 6-feet apart, we felt very safe, yet very normal.

My friend and I each had a glass of Champagne and an order of Truffle Fries, and it was perfect. The service was excellent, and we noticed their staff would thoroughly clean and sanitize each table as it was turned.

This is a perfect spot to enjoy a wine country dining experience. Just be sure to plan ahead a little and make a reservation.

The view was great, the food was okay, and the service was okay. A bit overpriced for the food you get and we had to ask for refills on our drinks, they seemed a bit understaffed.

Great Happy Hour - happens EVERY day from 3-5. Reservations recommended especially on Friday and Saturday. Good food and drink choices. They were a little understaffed when we arrived at 3, but service improved later. Great outdoor setting with social distancing measures in place.

Food was good but I wouldn’t say it was good value for the price. Kale salad was best I ever had but main dish of brick chicken was average. Maybe our circumstances of evacuating the wildfires skewed our taste buds. Gorgeous restaurant!
