So disappointed in our visit. Walked into restaurant and no one was to be found except for seated guests in two rooms. After about five minutes, our polite host/server arrived. We were seated immediately and offered water. "Bread" arrived and while it was welcome, the basket was four muffins, two corn bread and two banana nut. Lovely for breakfast, but wrong for lunch. The killer for us was that our food was so off and different than what we had expected, it ruined our trip from DC to Paris. The two soups we started with were fine, not exceptional in any way. One of use ordered a sandwich (BLC) and the other ordered the schnitzel. Sandwich fine with excellent fries. Schnitzel was inedible -- limp, cold, tough and totally without flavor. Served over very mustardy, hot potato salad. Thank heaven for the fresh salad served on the plate. When the server finally inquired about our lunch and was told about the schnitzel, he was most apologetic and ultimately removed the item from our bill. He also offered that the executive chef was on vacation. Ugh! Don't know if we will venture back for a second outing.
OMG, what a wonderful place to eat. The service was outstanding.
Our 25th anniversary
Great visit! Everything was outstanding especially the food.
Wow! This dinner was so very worth the wait - every time I check they are booking 2 months out - and I know this was the best meal my husband and I have ever had. The plating was beautiful with every course while the temperatures and flavors were perfect as well! Duck fat muffins = amazing! Excellent dining experience and highly recommended!
The outdoor patio is covered and has fans and is lovely. The food was fantastic, as was the service. Definately coming back!!
My husband and I have been going to the Ashby Inn nearly every year for the past 30 years. We love going in late summer to enjoy the outdoor air and beautiful views. Last night we had a lovely server who was pleasant and professional and knowledgeable without hovering. We will continue to go back every year with pleasure and anticipation.
Beef cooked delightfully. Soups and potato garnishes have a flowing smoothie as to them. Some sauces could do with less reduction to have more subtle flavors, particularly those with sweet notes in them. Breakfasts are reliably prepared no matter what the selection and speak to how eggs, pastry, potatoes, and meats should be respected and served.
Perfect birthday dinner!
Thank you for the wonderful review, David. We're so happy to hear that you had a great Birthday dinner experience. Cheers!
This was our 1st visit & it will not be our last. Next time we'll definitely bring friends. Our salad, appetizer & entrees were simply amazing. I don't write reviews but couldn't help myself this time. My wife & I shared the salmon & filet for our entree. They both were so full of flavor I couldn't do it just by trying to describe them. Just try this place & you'll definitely get the rewards for choosing it. You'll see what I mean when you go.
Dinner was phenomenal. We came for my boyfriend's 30th bday dinner. Our waitress Elizabeth took great care of us. Highly recommend if you want a romantic delicious meal!
The food was absolutely delicious, the service was definitely top notch, every detail was taken care of without even asking, very accommodating and professional staff. Rusty and Brandon made our visit even more special. They were both extremely attentive. The customer service at The Ashby is like no other. The pleasure was most definitely OURS!
Lovely place, food good, but menu could be a bit more creative.
We enjoyed an amazingly good brunch - perfectly prepared dishes, fine selection of wines, exceptional service - all in an amazing bucolic setting. Thank you for setting such a nice table, literally, for catching up with old friends.
I had a wonderful time! Thank you! Food was great so is the service
The food was outstanding.
Fabulous food and service
A wonderful overall experience for my special birthday dinner!
A beautiful view, wonderful server and the food was spectacular.
My mother and I have dined here several times over the years, and we're thrilled to see the Ashby has returned to its glory.
A perfect summer day and a perfect place for lunch.
Good work, everyone!
Our party of 4 had bunch on Sunday on the outdoor patio. The tables were nicely distanced from one another. The service was professional, maybe a bit slow at times, but we were enjoying the ambiance and conversation, so that was not a problem. We all started with the carrot, apple, ginger cold soup, which we all agreed was excellent. Two of our party had the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and home fries. We both agreed these were the best eggs Benedict we have had in a long time, if not ever. The poached eggs were perfectly cooked with runny yolks. The English muffins were perfectly buttered and toasted, making what is normally not a very interesting part of the dish very tasty. The home fries were very crispy on the outside, but light and creamy on the inside. The dish also came with a small side salad, which was also excellent. The other members of our party had the wild mushroom omelet and the braised beef short ribs. They reported both dishes to also be excellent. Ashby Inn has a full bar and a nice wine list. While we were there, a heavy rainstorm came through. The ambiance of eating under the covering while listening to the rain was wonderful. This was our first time to Ashby Inn, we will definitely be back. Next time for dinner.
Food rivals that of any high end DC restaurant if not better. Stunning location with views of valley between the mountains. Quick professional and pleasant service. Can’t recommend highly enough.
The room with the booths and outdoor area are both great. The other rooms are rather sterile, open, and lackluster. They provide NO conversational privacy. Personally, I would almost prefer dumpy and loud. The decor does not measure up to the food. Go for the food.
Food was excellent. There was a nice range of offerings.
Great place to stay with stellar service and food. Dinner menu contains some creative dishes which were all fantastic. If you can sit outside ñ, its a must.
Wonderful service and fabulous food! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and could not have chosen a better place🍸
Very welcoming staff, lovely menu options, great service /attentiveness to detail, and good, nicely presented dishes in a charming setting.
Amazing place. Historic atmosphere, great food, helpful service, and a wonderful sommelier named John. We also stayed overnight in the School House, their additional property next door. We are definitely going back!
Thank you the fantastic review. We are delighted you enjoyed our historic atmosphere, delicious food, and exceptional service. John, our Sommelier, will be thrilled to hear he did a remarkable job. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Outstanding food. In fact, the best steak I've ever eaten in a resaurant.
Thank you for the terrific review. We are thrilled you enjoyed our delicious steak. We hope you join us again soon for another tasty entree!
This is our third time dining at The Ashby Inn, and twice during COVID. We also stayed at the inn during our last two visits. It's a very special place and the food is wonderful. Highly recommend.

The view was beautiful, the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We had a lovely, relaxing brunch before hiking at Sky Meadows park. I am recommending the Ashby in to all of my friends and we look forward to returning, soon!
Absolutely some of the finest food we have ever eaten. Top knotch in every respect.
This was our third visit to The Ashby Inn and Restaurant, where we were guests at the Inn and have now had five (5) wonderful dinners at their suburb restaurant. The first time was inside last Dec. The next four dinners were outside at their covered terrace open to the outside with spectacular views to the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Even with observing the safety protocols of the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the service was top notch and the ambiance of this setting was very relaxed and special. They have about twelve tables on their terrace for 2-4 people each so it is very small and low key. John, the Sommelier was very knowledgeable, especially of the local/regional Virginia wines, which we wanted to try. As others have noted, the Chef here does an excellent job with all of the appetizers and entrees that we have tried, especially with the house favorite of Dover Sole. We agree with others who have voted The Ashby Inn and Restaurant as one of the top restaurants (and B&B Inn’s) in northern Virginia. We look forward to our next return enjoyable visit and delicious meals….
My husband and I decided on the tasting menu which included four courses. The ambience and service were both outstanding and the food was delicious. Highly recommend for special occasions
Thank you so much for the excellent review. We are thrilled you and your husband enjoyed the delicious tasting menu at The Ashby Inn. Our staff will be delighted to know they provided outstanding service and superb food. Please join us again soon for another day in Paris!
