I've been told about this place a few times and have not really had interest until a few friends decided to go. Amazing experience. First off, the food was great. The staff was also great. To me service and food comes hand in hand. Sometimes you get good food but not so good wait staff. Or you get so so... More

Date night! Always a good time with my partner in crime, but something seems off at this site. Not sure if it's because we're locals and spoiled foodies, but just missed the mark. Easy to get to, a wee pricey, but decent sized portions and it was good....just not great. We will have to check out their HH one of... More

We went for New Year Eve dinner, which is also our 5 year anniversary. The waitress was nice but the whole atmosphere was horrible and their service was poorly executed. I don't know if they were overbooked or short staffed. We were there for 3 and 1/2 hours for only a four course meal. They did not sit us until... More

We enjoyed everything about our experience at John Ash. The service wine and food were spot on. We shared calamari I had the duck which I have not had for years. It was so tender that I did not even use my knife. I hope we get a chance to go back.

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!

The food was delicious off of the happy hour menu. Though I was sad to no get a taste of the duck leg. Ambiance is comfy in the bar... More

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
