3 nights in early February, 2006.
Bistro Ralph...Inattentive service - we had to flag down the server several times for various things. Food was good, but nothing special. I supect they have lost their edge.
Zin ... Casual and fun, with a nice, reasonably priced wine list. Great ribs and roast chicken - both went well with our Zinfandel ( Dark Horse - worth ordering just to read the label.) Pleasant and professional server who knew the wine list well.
John Ash & Co. ... Leather seating, and low lighting in the bar - made us want to stay there for hours, but that would have taken away from our time in the excellent restaurant. Terrific oysters with 3 sauces for dipping - all of which were new to me. a long time oyster lover. Good wine list that won't hurt you too badly. Excellent service and food to match. First rate in every way.
