We went with8 friends for a birthday celebration. We were seated in a room to ourselves with a quiet and beautiful setting. This is owned by a couple. Charlene has been cooking for 40 years. Each meal was fantastic. They sent gazpacho on the house. Bernie gave wine recommendations and made sure everything was perfect. I am from the Bay Area and this rivaled all our restaurants at a more reasonable price. Only wished I lived closer to frequent this amazing restaurant more often.

This place has personality. It's fun and funky. The burger will change your life. Good service. $15 fixed menu for lunch with several good options.

I am in my car at the restaurant discussing with my SO our wonderful shared meal. Arctic char, chicken breast, wonderful local viognier, and two fabulous desserts.

Meeting Vernon was a highlight. What a delightful restaurant owner who combines high customer first personality with outstanding culinary delights prepared by his wife.

Thank you for a very memorable evening.

Vernon is not going to continue this landmark forever. 29 years is more than anyone can expect. Cherish it while it remains the iconic Ashland-Medford dining experience, with care and attention to every detail.

Everyone has their favorite restaurant in Ashland. This is mine for several reasons:
1. The food is always creative, nothing run-of-the-mill. It is usually savory in the bistro tradition. The menu is always widely varied, if not extensive. The ingredients are as fresh as can be imagined. And, the preparation is meticulous and loving.

2. The place is charming, particularly the older section, with small semi-private rooms, excellent sound control, and quaint, homey decor. It is just plain comfortable.

3. Vernon's (he the proprietor) wine list is extensive (note the "t" rather than a "p". Rely on his choice: it will be a terrific pairing with your food, and it won't break the bank.

4. Lunch at New Sammy's is the best value in town. Prix fixe is very reasonable, the portions are just right, and the room in the new section in which lunch is usually served is warm, cozy and a complement to the meal.
