We chose Hearsay because of the lovely garden and great food and we were not disappointed! I had the scallops starter - 5 large scallops so could be a main dish! My husband had the special gazpacho - yummy! He had the halibut fish and chips - the aioli was so wonderful I got the recipe! I had the cumin halibut with corn hash - also perfectly cooked and so tasty! Each got a nice wine by glass. The garden was lovely and tables well separated- we felt safe. All server/wait staff wore masks. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our meals of a hamburger and the pesto pasta. They were tasty and hot.
The salad I had was so so...not much taste, probably due to the bland salad dressing. Very fresh though and well presented.
Our server, I believer her name was Sarrin? Not sure, but it sounded like that. She was the best. Very good personality to be a wait person. Happy and eager for her customers to be satisfied. We really enjoyed her.

Wonderful outdoor patio, and gracious and nice service.
Ate there twice within 1 week. Delicious salad and soup.
One minor concern, both the Scallops and the Mussels
were over salted. It is easier to add salt at our table,
and prefer the chef to use less.

Wow! The service here was impeccable. We loved our server and hostess. Our server even wrote down reccs for wine tasting the next day! It felt very safe in the beautiful garden. The halibut and brussel sprouts were wonderful

We made reservations on Saturday night and got to sit outside in the most beautiful garden! The food was delicious as well as the drinks! Would recommend to anyone (service was a little slow but COVID related so to be expected)

We sat in the lovely tiered garden and almost felt like we were eating alone. Food was outstanding, our server was excellent, and ambiance on a warm summer night was wonderful. We can't wait to eat there again!

Fantastic Ambience, I felt like I was in the middle of a Movie, and Marlon Brando would be sitting over in the corner. Service was great! Great place to grab a drink at a fancy bar or sit outside in a garden. The possibilities are endless!!!

Great outside garden dining. Outstanding service. The cocktails were great, the charcuterie was amazing - the burger and pesto pasta were fresh and original preparations. Would love to go back and enjoy the lounge environment when these crazy times pass.

We love Hearsay. There are many great restaurants in our area but Hearsay is special. They have the nicest outdoor dining space and really good food. In particular, we like the owner, Julie. She is always so welcoming, it's like going to eat at a friend's place. The Happy Hour menu is super, as well as the regular menu. We always enjoy taking friends to Hearsay for the first time or repeat visits.

Treat yourself to an incredible experience at Hearsay, where it does not get any better in Ashland! A standout in a community of flavorful, fresh PNW fare, exceptional service, and inside AND garden seating, this is a local fave! We've had it all--the craft cocktails, steak, seafood, veggie, gluten-free...the small plates are fun to share with friends at Happy Hour. The staff sticks around! That says a lot about the owners! If you're lucky enough to have DeShawn as your server or bartender, and you're feeling creative, trust him to pick you a dish or drink. His knowledge, service, and authenticity is everything!!!

We'll be back. Again and again! As we've been since Hearsay's been open.

Initially our party of 4 was taken to a table that happened to be next to a very raucous table of 6. We asked to be reseated in a quieter location and were immediately accommodated by an extremely responsive staff, who apologized and served us a complimentary Prosecco.

I would highly recommend Hearsay. The food was exceptional. Service was ok. I just think our server needs more experience in a fine dining restaurant. Giving a “thumbs up” signal was not what I was expecting. The ambience was lovely and the gentleman playing the piano was delightful. I would most definitely plan return visit.

The menu has mostly items that we are not interested in so we chose the hamburger. It was good.
It seems that it would be good to have a couple of mainstream items on the menu also.
Waiter was ok. It took a long time to get our drinks.

I always recommend Hearsay. Everyone loves it. We sit here in small town Ashland....but honestly you could be in Manhattan, without the NYC prices. The added touch of the piano player only adds to the wonderful ambiance......his music is just perfect for dinner music that doesn’t interrupt conversations. I can’t say enough about the cordial and friendly staff. Great wine list and bartender great at drink recommendations. Whether we pop in after a play or movie for HAPPY HOUR or come with friends for a special dinner......we are NEVER disappointed. By far my favorite “go to” place in a town that offers many fabulous restaurants to choose from. Thank you everyone!
