Probably the best meal we've had in our many years visiting Ashland. Just a block and a half off of Main Street in an area of cute shops, about 10 minutes from the theaters. We sat inside looking out on their large outdoor garden seating area (it was raining). Warm, elegant dining room. Their menu is very flexible: lots of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Peerless Restaurant. The day was warm and the garden area was perfect with enough shade from umbrellas to make it comfortable. We were never rushed and enjoyed a long evening in the fresh air. The perfect place to be. The menu had an excellent variety of meals, including the small plates that my husband... More

Few vegetarian choices...but the food/value ratio is very low. Waitstaff was good, but front of the house could care less - and I was there with a party of 5. Try another restaurant and save your $ from this place.

great food, wait staff, and ambiance at its best. We enjoy dining in Ashland, and among the best of the best (Amuse, Thai Pepper, Cucina), Peerless always delivers a fine evening. When the weather is warm, ask for a table on the deck or in the garden. Excellent food, drinks, wine list.

The atmosphere and service were wonderful, and we lingered a long time. We did not feel rushed, even though it was a Saturday night. The food was very good, but not outstanding. The most interesting part of the menu is called Small Plates, and we ordered several of those, including Green Bean Fries, Chimichurri Prawn Skewer, and Calamari. All were... More

Great ambiance, service, and food! The prosecco wasn't bad, either. Nothing more to say, other than it's a place I'd recommend to friends and visitors.

Our dinner and breakfast were among the most delightful we have ever had in Ashland. Dinner was sumptuous, ranging from salad nicoise to mushroom bisque--as good as our meals in Paris last year. The food is artful, mindful, tasteful--you could expect nothing more thoughtful and delicious. HIgh marks on food: above average marks on decor and service.

We have had several meals at the Peerless, and we have been happy with the service and the choices. My wife and relatives had a halibut dish that was really excellent. We have fish all the time and know the difference. We had very good service, Prices slightly on the high side, but not excessive.

All of the tapa's we tried we're outstanding. They did not get my drink request correct twice, but we're very apologetic about it, and took it off the bill. Overall a good experience for a date night.

This expensive restraunt with lovely ambience has been my all-time food favorite as well. Until last night. The menu has drastically changed: burgers, steak, chicken. Boring salads and sides that you could get at a chain cafe, but still expensive. The beauty of the food here in the past was that it was artful, unique, fresh; now it is boring... More
