This was our second visit to their garden while traveling through Oregon. A terrific Avenue with good food and service. We will surely be back.

small menu, but should have had items on the menu available (no oysters) maybe a substitute if not able to get oysters?

Hearsay is one of the top three restaurants in Ashland. Their menu in the time of Covid is somewhat pared down yet still creative and thoughtful. Wine prices seem a bargain by restaurant standards. Choose the outdoor garden if available.

As always, our evening at Hearsay did not disappoint! We highly recommend the roasted brussel sprout starter! The Roasted Poblano & Jalapeno Cheese Grits with Grilled Shrimp
was a wonderful mix of flavour and texture. The Columbia River Steelhead Maque Choux was a light and tasty entree!

Hearsay is a gem among local restaurants in any year. Now, in early 2021, as the Covid pandemic still has us in its clutches, the restaurant is doing a wonderful job of keeping diners safe and happy. The outdoor space is not only an attractive "secret garden", it is designed so that tables are not too close together, for diners' comfort. Indoors, it's atmosphere is charming, like an art gallery or night club, with live piano music a plus. The menu when we recently visited offered some very spicy dishes with a sort of Creole vibe, tasty and a bit unusual, with small plates and appetizers as starters. Loved the seared brussel sprouts! All was well prepared. We love taking out of town guests to Hearsay for the ambience, the food, the good service.

We were visiting Ashland for just one night (passing through on our way from Portland to the Bay Area) and came here for dinner. We're so glad that we did! Everything was amazing: the food, the service and the beautiful patio. We'll definitely come back next time we're in the area and highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice dining experience in Ashland.

It felt so good to finally be back at Hearsay since last Fall. The new dinner menu is great and our meal was perfect, beginning with drinks from the new cocktail menu. We shared small plates and appetizers: Kumamoto oysters on the half shell, blacked shrimp cocktail, a small salad that included apples and strawberries, grilled Pacific oysters, and Cajun Steelhead fish and chips. Everything was very tasty. I am not sure how we managed to have room for dessert, but we did. The passion fruit and lime Bavarian was an outstanding ending - light but flavorful. The outside seating in the beautiful garden was socially distanced and comfortable. We can't wait to go back.

The menu could use more dishes without bell peppers in them. A lot of older folks can't handle bell peppers the way they use to and they cause stomach problems.

First time there....blown away by beauty of main dining room...wall art outstanding...added lots to ambience. Serving staff very attentive/cheerful.
Selection more than adequate, Good price/value. Minor negative was lively room acoustics & rather loud party nearby for some of our dining experience.

We only wish we lived closer to be able to eat there more often! Always a wonderful meal, very creatively prepared, great flavors! The wine list has all price ranges, and our waiters over the past several years have always been spot-on with their recommendations! The staff is always welcoming and efficient, and nothing can beat the ambiance! We just love it and have recommended it to many friends.
