We are never disappointed when we're lucky enough to find ourselves going to the Inn for a special occasion (in this case Easter brunch). Food, perfect. Service, exceptional (we love Bonnie but the entire team is excellent). We're sure some in DC might find it a bit of a trip "just" to dine but it's worth it !!!

The main course was a bit underwhelming. Other courses were good, though dessert was not that special either. Need to do a little more to improve the food if they are going to continue to charge such high prices. Atmosphere and service are up to par for a restaurant of this pretension.

What a wonderful experience, a very special night.
We were welcomed warmly when we walked in .
Our server Nolan and the Sommelier Stuart were very knowledgeable and attentive.
The tasting menu is the way to go, we both had the Chef’s tasting and it was fantastic. Six Perfectly portioned works of culinary art, with perfectly paired wines for each course.
Chef Andrew did a fantastic job the food was perfect.
We will return again soon.

I had been wanting to try the Ashby Inn for several years, and my wife and I are both glad that we finally did. The place is absolutely beautiful. A lot of history and character. The Amuse Bouche and little extras between courses were all very nice. Services was very good, but felt like it took a long time to get dessert course and to get the check at the end of the meal. Food overall was all amazing, taste wise and visually, but a few components in a dish or two that seemed slightly out of place. All in all, a great experience with wonderful food and comfortable but elegant environment.

The staff at Ashby really took care of us. We went to celebrate a milestone birthday and they greeted our party as such from the moment we walked through the door. The dishes for each course were promptly delivered and exquisite. The small bites and palette cleansers in-between courses were also delicious. Chef Tom goes over the top with presentation. Each dish was a beautiful work of art both visually and consumptionally. The combination of surprising ingredients worked in harmony and each piece was wonderfully cooked and prepared. I highly recommend this place for when you need to celebrate that special occasion. Bravo to Chef Tom and sous Chef Andrew! Thank you so much!

I have wanted to try this restaurant for some time and having friends from out of town visiting was a perfect excuse. The food was wonderful and making it even more memorable was the entire staff -- especially the Sommelier, Stuart, who made perfect recommendations and regaled us with his in depth knowledge of the history of the area. I am looking forward to returning again soon.

The food was good but the service very slow - we decided because of a big private party in house. It was one hour from the time of our arrival to the service of the first course. The wait staff tried to ameliorate this delay by offering two sets of amuse bouche, more rolls than we could possibly eat, and finally sending us off with little bags of granola. All appreciated, but more rapid service would have been better!

We love The Ashby Inn, the food is Amazing but even more importantly the People make us feel so welcome. Manager Carlos took very good care of us and Chef Thomas amazed us with the sight and taste of the food Especially the Duck which I am still raving about. Stuart Brennan always knows what wine to pair with the food and our dear friend Nolan spent as much time with us as she could. We know she has other folks to look after but we wish she could sit down and join us for conversation , we adore her! Be Back Soon!!

It was a rainy day so we sat inside for brunch. Always made to feel welcome here. I was happy with a split of Hillenger brut rose while we enjoyed the warm bread & honey-butter sprinkled with sea salt. When we read the menu & were intrigued by the smoked olive oil ingredient, the chef sent over a sample & more bread. We both loved our appetizers. I had the endive salad while hubby tried the Black Forest ham dish. His entrée was Shrimp & Grits (a big hit) & I chose Fish & Chips w/ smashed peas. I wish the chef would add more herbs (especially mint) to the peas for a more complex flavor. Great tartar sauce & crispy chips. My dessert was a deconstructed Crème Brulee called "Burnt Cream". Beautiful as well as delicious. Barry did not enjoy his Caramel & Chocolate Cremeaux as much. As if the chef read his mind, he sent over a bowl of Sticky Toffee Pudding ala mode. Very sweet & yummy. It sealed our resolve to skip dinner that night! We love their Cappuccino w/ rock candy on a stick (which I always take home for the grand kids). Can't wait for Spring so that we can have a table on the patio overlooking the garden. But it was lovely to sit in the parlor in front of a fire.

We visited the Ashby Inn 10 - 15 years ago. It was impressive then, but is still better now.

Note: No rating is given for noise level, because there were only 2 other diners on the evening we were there. We do not like a noisy place, so the level was perfect for us.

Magnificent! We had the Vegetarian tasting menu. It i perhaps the most notable menu in the greater Washington DC area, and even further, and that includes even some of the more famous 'country' inns in the Virginia horse country. Truely world class. For this menu and presentation, one could and should travel far. And the option to stay the night, at a reasonable cost, after taking the superb matched wine flight, makes this an even more compelling candidate for consideration as the finest dining experience. (Certainly this is the case for the vegetarian, I heard great things about the 'regular' tasting menu, but we did not partake.)

We had a date on a Thursday night at the Ashby and were blown away by the experience. I am vegan and my boyfriend is vegetarian. We let the restaurant know ahead of time and they went above and beyond to cater to us! The manager, Carlos, made sure to talk to us about our dietary restrictions and was very accommodating so we chose to try the tasting menu. Every single dish was incredible. Chef Tom absolutely conveys his skill and love of food in every plate. All of the components on each dish were creative and complimented each other wonderfully. Not a single detail was overlooked. Even our dessert course was made especially for us- blood orange “custard” with cranberry sorbet. Our server, Nolan, was world-class and extremely professional; and the sommelier, Stuart, was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly! This was truly extraordinary and we are so grateful for the experience.

I had dinner last night at the Ashby Inn. It was AMAZING. I actually think I should say that I “experienced” dinner at the Ashby Inn since it was so much more than eating great food. From the moment the first course arrived I knew I was in for a treat. Every plate was a work of art and our knowledgeable server carefully introduced us to each one. By the time she had finished, my fork was trembling with anticipation, and I was too. The lovely and cozy atmosphere on a winter’s night and the smooth professionalism of the staff just added to the perfection. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I was clearly on the receiving end of a coordinated masterpiece, from the artistry of the chef and the care of the sommelier to the beautifully synchronized arrival and departure of the plates! I’ll be back.
