I've been a few times now to the Ashby Inn, and each time the food has been wonderful. Definitely worth the drive out to Paris, VA!

Chef Tom Whitaker, and the exceptional Ashby Inn staff, always make your visit special. The creative and delicious food is inspiring! Stuart, the Sommelier, was knowledgeable and clearly loves his work. I highly recommend the tasting menu.

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.

I was hesitant to book on Christmas Eve. We ate there many years ago and it was great. New owners apparently have kept things going. It was a nice evening with attentive service, we’ll prepared and presented dishes, albeit small proportions.

Quality not quantity - which is just what I like. Spare me the large portions of mediocre tasting dishes. Give me something I can’t make at home please.

Charming accommodations, rich with historic features. Out of the way but a great place for a special dinning experience.
