This is the perennial top pick for Wine Country cuisine in Sonoma County. Co-located with the Vintners Inn, it provides a meorable base for special occasion visits. Superb, somewhat edgy menu, exceptionally well-prepared.

Having been going to this restaurant for many years, in the past it was arguably the best restaurant in Santa Rosa when John Ash himself still prepared his wonderful dishes. It still is a great place to enjoy happy hour and have a delightful meal...More
