    We had an excellent dinner with my folks last evening. Every thing we ordered was superb - goat cheese and seared tuna apps, salads (the beet and the Wedge), burger, ribs, tenderloin, and then deserts. some of us ordered the shrubs and others had wine. we loved the ambiance, the piano player, and the food was on point! every single bite :) Our server was kind and attentive (but not in our face every 5 minutes) - we all adored him! We'll be back for sure next time we visit Ashland. highly recommend!!

    Truly fine dining in a beautiful and unique room. Service was excellent with a combination of a server assisted by food runners. Food is decidedly upscale, well prepared, and the pace was perfect; no rush and no lag. Together with Larks at the Ashland Springs Hotel, just around the corner, a great two evenings in Ashland.

    Had a lovely dinner—good drinks, fresh bread, endive salad ( delicious and creative). Then we had sirloin steak with delicious mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts. No room for dessert—just a lovely evening with piano music in the background.

    The food was beyond delicious and the staff was very attentive even though they were quite harried by a large (loud) group. Dessert was difficult; too hard a choice and not really enough room, but some sacrifices are worth it! Great place and now we’re wondering why we waited so long to try it.

    Wonderful paintings on the wall and a great long bar set the tone. The food is excellent and the service could not be better. Unlike several other restaurants in Ashland who have a time frame for your dinner, Hearsay allows you to set the pace of your meal.

    Even on a busy Valentine's Day dinner evening the service was prompt, the server was knowledgeable, and everything went smoothly. The fettuccine was as good as it can be, and the scallop appetizer had a superb sauce.

    Outstanding service, beautiful restaurant and some the most well cooked, flavorful and well presented food we’ve had. We got there early, but were welcomed the bar and our table was ready on time. The piano set a wonderful mood, complimented by the lovely decor. The beef tenderloin and the chicken milanse were outstanding.

    Love the atmosphere. Wait staff were really friendly and wonderful and kept the water glasses full! We all enjoyed our dinner - caesar salad, seared pork belly (almost a meal in itself!), endive salad, clam linguini, Hearsay burger (great fries) and chicken milanese. All were wonderful! It's been a while since coming here, but we'll make it back sooner for sure!

    Comfortable, quiet piano bar lounge with FANTASTIC food. My only complaint is that the fried brussel sprouts were a bit too salty. The wait staff is exceptional, the ambiance is divine, and the food is, on the whole, outstanding. We used to have a different favorite restaurant in town, but that might be changing.

    Food and place great--only 2 concerns: the fish taco sauce was too spicy--need to tell people that or offer a mild version and a spicy version. Second, turn down the music so we can talk more easily.

    Best meal ever! My husband had the Brussels Sprouts and Caesar salad, I had the creamy southwestern soup, bread, & the Beet Salad. Everything was excellent; the southwestern soup is a favorite of mine with this one being the best I’ve ever tasted. When we come back to Ashland, we’ll try the entrees. Highly recommended.
