We were travelling from WA to CA, and this just stood out on Opentable. I'm so glad I went! Probably one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. I highly recommend! Great tasting food. Our waiter Chad was awesome. Great experience and stop for a long day of travel.

Our first visit to Peerless on a gift certificate. Food is very expensive for what you get. Paid $16 for 2 very small crabcakes. My husband's hamburger was no better than one from a much lower cost restaurant. My french onion soup was authentic and tasty. Service was attentive.

We just love this restaurant and celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here every year. You just can't find a better steak, roasted chicken, and special little vegetable twists anywhere, not to mention the finest sweet vermouth ever, the Campano Antica! Peerless is definitely peerless in Ashland!

The waiter was excellent. . .the best we have had there. He was very observant of our needs and went beyond the call of duty to please us. There were no surprises and he was aware of our needs as old folks!! Keep Him!

nicely prepared dinner and pleasant service but not what I would call an inspired menu.

Eaten at Peerless several times and never been disappointed. Great food, nice inviting space inside and fantastic outside space; great service.

We're not upscale types so when my wife and I went to Peerless for Christmas Eve we were expecting to spend more than we usually can on a meal. Maybe we didn't have expensive clothes and they picked up on that as we got shoved into a cubby hole fit tightly between two tables and across from a nice wide open table for two in a window. We did have reservations too. That other table sat open for most of our stay. The meal was great, we both enjoyed our selections very much. The waiter was friendly and helped pick out some nice choices of wine. But, he did not comeback to see how everything was until we were about done with our meals. We made the best of it being Christmas Eve and we always feel fortunate to have what we have, but we were short changed on what was a very expensive meal for us. Since we just moved here we'll give the restaurant another go. It is a nice place so hopefully we'll be treated better and given a nicer table the next go around.

This is an excellent restaurant for a first class dinner in Ashland.
The food is good with a lot of unique selections and an excellent wine list.

Yummy wonderful dinner this week. Waiter was professional and efficient. We started with cocktails (excellent) and the harissa roasted cauliflower. It was excellent. We then shared the frisee and beet salad... I would not order that again... nothing special and dressing was too sweet. I had the lamb shank, cooked perfectly... and my husband had the hanger steak... again, lovely and cooked perfectly with great flavor. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going again.

We had a very enjoyable meal. The service was attentive. The food was properly prepared and delicious. The peerless is not an inexpensive restaurant, but you can see and taste the quality of the chef's skills in both the ingredients used and their preparation.

Southern Oregon does not really have a lot of fine dining establishments. I am happy to say that the Peerless deserves to be included in the short list of those that do deserve to be called Fine Dining.

Wonderful food, awesome staff...took my girl on a date here. Impressed her with reservations lol but she absolutely loved it. The delicious food was fantastic. Our waiter was super nice. The low level music I gave me the perfect opportunity to ask my girl to dance with me.(we were the last two couples in the place) Out waiter absolutely loved that!! We had the best seat in the house....right next to the fireplace! Would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone!!
