Morning Glory Restaurant

Reviewed By mguelker - Bellingham, WA

Our first visit to Morning Glory! We loved it! Great coffee, wonderful food options for breakfast and lunch. We tried the kale risotto cake and hash browns and the Mediterranean omelette with sliced tomatoes. Wonderful!

The interior of this quaint little cottage is just precious. Quintessential Ashland!

Amuse Restaurant

We seek the finest ingredients, utilizing organic, small-producer items. Shaded outdoor dining in summer months. Voted Best New, Oregon 2002 by Northwest Palate.

Reviewed By pkras - Ashland, Oregon

This was my second trip to Amuse, but my feeling was the same: they have perfectly well cooked food and provide a sophisticated setting. But the menu is limited, the food is unexciting, the price is high and the place really isn't all that much fun. Our waiter didn't make us feel very welcome at the early sitting -- he was impatient with the elderly people in my party. I'd recommend New Sammy's . Larks and Alchemy well ahead of Amuse.

I came by myself to Larks Home Kitchen and sat at the bar for an amazing 4 course meal that included a salad. burger and two lovely glasses of wine.

The bar tender brought the wrong salad initially and apologized profusely for doing so. Then brought the right one. Delicious!

I moved through all the courses effortlessly to get me to an 8pm curtain at the Elizabethan Theater and the staff and food were amazing.

This place is owned by the same company that runs the Luna Cafe at Ashland Hills Hotel and Suites which is my "got to" Ashland hotel for my twice yearly visits to see and experience the outstanding theater.

You must stop by and experience this restaurant before the show in Ashland. Amazing food and service awaits you.

Alchemy Restaurant and Bar

Sept 1st, 2015 - Just named one of the Top 100 Restaurants for Foodies by OpenTable. We are a small fine dining restaurant that strives to use local ingredients to transmute our food, cocktails and dining experience into memorable evenings. We feature an award winning wine list with Certified Sommelier on staff to help, and inventive craft cocktails to wow the palate.

Reviewed By STOC1173 - Albuquerque, NM

We left depressed. The clientele seemed to be mostly locals, so given the benefit of doubt we may have hit a bad night. The waitress was clueless and never looked at my wife. I could hear other tables easier than her explaining the specials. The parpadelle pasta was great. The duck breast, not so much. The meals had little artistic presentation and included nothing else but the described entree. No potatoes or veggies with the steaks, etc. Very extensive wine menu. Good desserts. We're not going back, ever.

Liquid Assets Wine Bar

Reviewed By TravelTrekker1 - San Mateo, CA

Nice ambiance and adequate service, but the food is mediocre. There are only 5 entrees offered -- a burger, scallop dish, risotto, mushroom dish, and a beef dish. Our group had a salmon salad, which was reportedly tasteless and had not much salmon, the sweet corn risotto ($24), which had hardly any corn, a small scallop, and not much taste, and the mushroom carbonara ($24), which reportedly was pretty good. The portions were quite small, especially considering the prices. Wine was offered by the glass at $8 - $18 per glass. Beer is $6 - $9 per glass. Go there to drink but not to eat.

I found this restaurant in a ranking of top 5 restaurants in Ashland. So I went away from all my other favorites and took a chance and some friends to Peerless. From the moment you step in you are wondering what type of restaurant is this? The bar area is dark and looks dated, the back area is a travelers country house of eccentric. Now I understand fusion but this is more con-fusion than decor or taste. The restaurant is a mix of Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern and country chic. The menu is much the same. I must point out I have never had bad service in Ashland EVER until this night at Peerless. Our waitress was aggressive and very cocky, it was not amusing. In fact is was a bit insulting for what we paid. The prices in this restaurant are WAY too high for the service and taste. I was actually embarrassed I brought my friends here because I could immediately think of 5 other restaurants I'd rather dined at and not be treated so poorly.
The restaurant did fill quickly but I don't know why. Everyone has a favorite spot or we all get in ruts when dining. I love to break out of that idea and try something new. This time is backfired and we all had weird stomach issues to add insult to injury the next day. Maybe they should change the name to "Perilous".

Met a friend at Greenleaf today. Ordered Eggs Benedict Florentine. Wow!! The eggs were perfectly booked and placed on a bed of sauteed spinach, mushroom, onions and garlic. I requested to leave out the English muffin, even though I was offered a gluten-free version. A generous side of grilled potatoes accompanied this dish and I just have to say it was totally delicious!! And a deal!!

Traditional thin crust pizza that I love. The crust is chewy and crunchy just like I love from back east. I always get the cheese pizza and I have also tried with other meat toppings. Always good! They serve by the slice or whole pizzas if you have a family. Atmosphere is casual and fun!!

Every season we return to Brothers. I understand they are under new owners. Same great menu and staff. We shared a Greek scramble, with artichokes, olives, spinach and feta. The hash browns were good, but as always, I wish they had home fries. I am sure they would be delicious here. The side bowl of fruit was large, and everything was ripe. Blueberries and strawberries were a nice touch this late in the season. The savory scone was a little dry. This was plenty of food for two and we left satisfied.

Caldera Brewery & Restaurant

Full bar. Family friendly restaurant with attached brewery. 45 Caldera Beers on tap. Fireplace. Outdoor heaters. Amazing views. Great food.

Reviewed By tvdon - Avon

Caldera Tap House is one of two microbrewery restaurants in downtown Ashland. This is not a review of the brewery facility that is located south of town on I5. It’s the pub located in downtown. Cool “Rathskeller” atmosphere. Friendly bar with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Good pub menu, and excellent beer. Flights get you five 4oz beers to sample. And they have a laundry list of brews to choose from. Our fav was the Mosaic IPA. Had a BLT, and she had soup and salad. Tasty, fresh ingredients. Friendly service and reasonable prices. Nice place to have a pint or two.
