Great food and service. Wine waiter was excellent and found us a reasonably priced wine that exactly fitted the description we had given him.
Waiter was patient and gave us plenty of time between courses. Food came perfectly prepared and had not been sitting waiting.
Scallops were sensational. Veal excellent. Perfect for a special event.
Slow service fish one piece over done an small portion. 2 hundred dollars with tip. Not worth it
Aside from our gas heater going out and my feet were freezing, and some sarcastic comments made by our server, everything else was perfect. Plus, no one could get the gas heater turned back on. Wait time to be greeted was a bit long; nevertheless, I will be returning.
Our spot was quite noisy when we first arrived; otherwise the ambiance would have been 5 stars instead of 4. Overall this remains a great place for dinner. The food was, as usual, outstanding.
The restaurant was beautiful as always. Lively ambiance. Service was prompt but not overbearing.
Our dining experience rocked! We arrived a bit early so we’re seated in bar area. Noted very casual attire from wine tasting patrons. Bar orders took 15 min. for delivery, but enjoyed well crafted cocktail and wine suggestions were great.
Dining room was so comfortably appointed with cozy fire place blazing. Service was excellent. Food so good!
Loved lobster “escargot style” appetizer, sea bass, and lamb trio. Experience was refined but really fun.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. We decided on the pre-selected menu. I had New York strip and my wife had the Sea Bass. I noticed this was the first time we finished each course with nothing left on both plates. Portion control was perfect. We didn't leave hungry and we didn't over eat. One minor serving mistake was made when our entree's arrived before the soup. Worth mentioning, but didn't subtract from a great experience.
Excellent space, nice bar vibe, menu was very appealing - but my Cassoulet was flat in flavor; even after I asked the server why it was in "quotes" on the menu and was assured it was a classic preparation. Not, based on my previous dining experiences.
Wife had stuffed squash, very tasty.
Foie gras trio was excellent, as was the service.
Wine country prices and service, but the execution on certain dishes needs improvement.
Still good, but not as great as it once was. May be better for visitors.
Very dark when seated. Hard time reading menu. Wait staff was excellent and attentive. Drink order took quite a long time however food came quickly. Beet salad excellent. Food presentation beautiful.
It has turned into our valentine day to go place over the years with its special offering. Food and service always what you would expect from a restaurant of this type. The decorations for valentines in the dining area were great. Big lull between our first two servings and our main entree. Server sort of intimated the kitchen was busy all at once. Not a real big deal as we were enjoying the evening but the vegetables that went with my dish were a little over done for my liking. Overall, if not traveling we will be back next year.
We went for Valentines Day and couldn’t have been more pleased. They decorated all the tables with Valentines balloons so it looked very festive. They had a special Valentines Menu which was great. I had the salmon and it was delicious and my husband had the duck, which was also delicious. This is actually the second time we have had dinner there and we love this place. They also have a fantastic happy hour!
Dining at John ash on Valentine’s Day evening felt like a real fairy tale moment of ‘and they lived happily ever after.” Everything was perfect as usual and we can hardly wait to come back
Absolutely amazing!! Nice added touches for Valentine’s, except the balloons were a bit tacky (everywhere you looked).
Outstanding. Great ambiance. Quiet, unlike many restaurants today.
It was our Valentines dinner one day ahead. Lovely meal.
We chose to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day early and chose John Ash as we hadn’t been there in a long time. The evening got off to a poor start when despite our reservation the front desk staff didn’t know where to seat us. Once seated we had to move to a quieter table. A lot of large loud groups to avoid. Once settled our waiter and the bussers were excellent.
The food was excellent also. Well prepared dishes served at their moment. The wine list however was thin in variety and promoted the owner’s label too much.
We will go again but won’t be rushing.
We have been living in Santa Rosa for 23 years and John Ash still has the best of everything you want for a wonderful relaxing evening. The food is always first rate. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

The food was good, we had the 4 course meal with wine paring. I had the fish on tray, the fish was cooked perfectly however the dish had sweet potato puree and a sweet vinaigrette so the dish was much to sweet. The service was excellent and the room was beautiful.
WE had a wonderful evening with good friends. Great service, great food and wonderful ambiance. Can't wait to go back.
Romantic setting, great food, and service. We all loved it. Our new favorite Santa Rosa restaurant.
Great service. Friendly and attentive staff. Enjoyed all courses on the tasting menu.
Beautiful restaurant with warm, romantic atmosphere. Food a tiny bit overpriced but fabulous. Wine list was terrific, but mostly expensive choices. Very little mid-range options. We will definitely return.
Restaurant was very pleasant with EXCELLENT service. The menu items are a little limited but overall, very good food.
As always a good dining experience. The ambiance is always inviting and cozy.
Great service and good food at good value
We always enjoy our dinners at John Ash - great food ,excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. Always a treat .
We had an delicious meal..service was good and attentive. We will come again
after an hour wait for our main course, the food was somewhat warm. Disappointing since we eat there several times a year and everything is usually perfect.
John Ash is always a wonderful experience. Great food, great service. The small tastes at the beginning and end are a nice touch. Request the outside, enclosed patio if you want more quiet. In the winter, they have heaters that do the job. Post-fires, this place is hopping as so many other options are no more.
