We went with friends for dinner had had a decent experience. My foie gras starter was excellent as was my wife's carpaccio. Her duck confit was quite good, but my "famous" lamb trio was very disappointing. The shank bit was dry, over cooked, and tasteless. The chop and sausage were better, but not particularly good. The polenta and a sort... More

We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at John Ash. While there were delicious menu options, we chose the traditional turkey dinner option, and It Was Fabulous! What a beautiful restaurant!

My partner and I arrived in Sonoma late on a Sunday evening. The staff at the restaurant was wonderful and acted like we arrived at 7pm and never rushed us throughout the meal although we were the last patrons in the place. We both had the chef's tasting menu paired with wines. It was excellent and I loved the pairings.The... More

Loved this restaurant! It is a little hard to find as the GPS announces that you have reached your destination and all you see is a dark power plant. Have faith, the restaurant has an entrance off Barnes Road and it worth the treasure hunt to find it. It is a beautiful venue with both indoor and outdoor seating with... More

Went for a birthday dinner and the service (Alan) was great The dinner started with complimentary salmon tartare--probably the worse part of the dinner--a little too much oil, needed a bit more salt. We choose the prime rib special ($47) and the taster's menu with wine pairings. If I were to quibble with the wine pairings, I would say that... More

Restaurant was beautiful and the setting is just gorgeous! Food was very, very good and the service was top notch. One of the best meals we had the entire time we were in California. Would highly recommend! We sat in the glass room at the back of the restaurant and bar area overlooking the gardens and vineyard. So very relaxing!
