The Ashby Inn
Our party of 4 had bunch on Sunday on the outdoor patio. The tables were nicely distanced from one another. The service was professional, maybe a bit slow at times, but we were enjoying the ambiance and conversation, so that was not a problem. We all started with the carrot, apple, ginger cold soup, which we all agreed was excellent. Two of our party had the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and home fries. We both agreed these were the best eggs Benedict we have had in a long time, if not ever. The poached eggs were perfectly cooked with runny yolks. The English muffins were perfectly buttered and toasted, making what is normally not a very interesting part of the dish very tasty. The home fries were very crispy on the outside, but light and creamy on the inside. The dish also came with a small side salad, which was also excellent. The other members of our party had the wild mushroom omelet and the braised beef short ribs. They reported both dishes to also be excellent. Ashby Inn has a full bar and a nice wine list. While we were there, a heavy rainstorm came through. The ambiance of eating under the covering while listening to the rain was wonderful. This was our first time to Ashby Inn, we will definitely be back. Next time for dinner.
Food rivals that of any high end DC restaurant if not better. Stunning location with views of valley between the mountains. Quick professional and pleasant service. Can’t recommend highly enough.
The room with the booths and outdoor area are both great. The other rooms are rather sterile, open, and lackluster. They provide NO conversational privacy. Personally, I would almost prefer dumpy and loud. The decor does not measure up to the food. Go for the food.
Food was excellent. There was a nice range of offerings.
Great place to stay with stellar service and food. Dinner menu contains some creative dishes which were all fantastic. If you can sit outside ñ, its a must.
Wonderful service and fabulous food! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and could not have chosen a better place🍸
Very welcoming staff, lovely menu options, great service /attentiveness to detail, and good, nicely presented dishes in a charming setting.
Amazing place. Historic atmosphere, great food, helpful service, and a wonderful sommelier named John. We also stayed overnight in the School House, their additional property next door. We are definitely going back!
Thank you the fantastic review. We are delighted you enjoyed our historic atmosphere, delicious food, and exceptional service. John, our Sommelier, will be thrilled to hear he did a remarkable job. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Outstanding food. In fact, the best steak I've ever eaten in a resaurant.
Thank you for the terrific review. We are thrilled you enjoyed our delicious steak. We hope you join us again soon for another tasty entree!
This is our third time dining at The Ashby Inn, and twice during COVID. We also stayed at the inn during our last two visits. It's a very special place and the food is wonderful. Highly recommend.

The view was beautiful, the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We had a lovely, relaxing brunch before hiking at Sky Meadows park. I am recommending the Ashby in to all of my friends and we look forward to returning, soon!
Absolutely some of the finest food we have ever eaten. Top knotch in every respect.
This was our third visit to The Ashby Inn and Restaurant, where we were guests at the Inn and have now had five (5) wonderful dinners at their suburb restaurant. The first time was inside last Dec. The next four dinners were outside at their covered terrace open to the outside with spectacular views to the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Even with observing the safety protocols of the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the service was top notch and the ambiance of this setting was very relaxed and special. They have about twelve tables on their terrace for 2-4 people each so it is very small and low key. John, the Sommelier was very knowledgeable, especially of the local/regional Virginia wines, which we wanted to try. As others have noted, the Chef here does an excellent job with all of the appetizers and entrees that we have tried, especially with the house favorite of Dover Sole. We agree with others who have voted The Ashby Inn and Restaurant as one of the top restaurants (and B&B Inn’s) in northern Virginia. We look forward to our next return enjoyable visit and delicious meals….
My husband and I decided on the tasting menu which included four courses. The ambience and service were both outstanding and the food was delicious. Highly recommend for special occasions

Outstanding in every regard!
Thank you for the amazing review. We are thrilled you had an outstanding time at The Ashby Inn. We hope you join us again soon!
Nicely nestled into a quiet country setting with beautiful views. We had dinner for four and sat outside on the patio. Although the menu was limited, the selection was broad. Our entrees were duck, filet mignon, crab cakes and scallops. All were prepared to perfection. We had a few drinks from the full bar including Macallan 18. The wine selection was fair but only came by the glass (I like getting a bottle). The deserts were great as well. This was a special birthday ocassion and it did not disappoint. I would highly recommend and plan to visit again.
Just another wonderful dining experience at The Ashby Inn. We had wonderful selections off the main menu with the sommelier creating some wonderful pairings for us. Never a bad experience from the kitchen to the bar to the beautiful outdoor surroundings. Thank you for making our anniversary another wonderful experience.
This is the 5th or 6th time I have dined at the Ashby Inn. The entire experience is impeccable, but the food is the star. Every bite is well thought out, the right temperature and texture, and a pleasure for the palate.
A great place for a wonderful weekend away. Highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review! We are thrilled to hear that you had an excellent experience on your weekend getaway. We hope that you join us again soon!
Service and food are always fantastic. Beautiful setting with great care given to social distancing and cleanliness.
Thank you for the terrific review. We are happy you enjoyed your dinning experience at the Ashby Inn. Please join us again soon for another day in Paris!
The outdoor dining space is very socially distanced. Lovely lighting and excellent service. The crab cakes were a highlight as was the peach cobbler, blackberry mint sorbet, pear salad, Dover sole, really everything. Great wines suggested by sommelier. We were so happy to have a fine dining experience for the first time in months. Highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this amazing review! We are pleased you enjoyed each dinning course at the Ashby Inn as well as our delicious wine. We hope you join us again for another evening in Paris!
Lovely setting with outdoor seating. However, restaurant had a tough time accommodating a garlic allergy so could not have any appetizer except a green salad. The duck entree unfortunately was overcooked even though I asked for medium rare. The saving grace was the delightful chocolate bomb for dessert.
The Ashby is consistently excellent. The fresh seasonal selection of menu items and service (Rusty), plus the setting and scenery, make for the best of experiences.
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy that you enjoy dinning at the Ashby Inn. We will continue to offer outdoor seating on our covered terrace with space heaters throughout. We would love to have you join us again, please come out and see the fall foliage during the most beautiful time of the year in Paris.
Quaint setting overlooking the inn garden and foothills, quite patio dining. Excellent attentive staff. Appetizer and desert were the stars of the dining experience. While the entrees were a bit off, the presentations were outstanding.
Easily one of the 3 best dining experiences in greater DC area. Creative, seasonal dishes. Tasting menu is always worth doing.
Excellent food and the wine was fabulous. We also had fantastic service!
Fabulous outdoor backdrop, like Austria in Virginia. My guest and I thought the blueberry muffins we literally the best we had ever eaten. The music was too loud, but quickly adjusted upon request. The service was excellent. Most definitely will return! A real gem!
I always love the Ashby! This is the first time we've been to a restaurant since March (due to Covid) and I was a little nervous. We felt completely safe! We ate outside on the patio with the fans on. Tables were about 10 feet apart (plenty of room to stay socially distant). The food was fabulous and the service flawless (as usual).
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience. Please come back and join us again soon :)
Although they ran out of one of the menu items we really wanted, everything else about our lunch visit was fantastic. The items we did order were great, and particularly enjoyed the chilled carrot soup. The patio seating had wonderful views and we liked our server as well.
We enjoyed an excellent relaxing meal on the outdoor patio. The service was outstanding and safety protocols were in place due to the pandemic. We would highly recommend that people enjoy this lovely restaurant!
Great food, great service - we have been coming here for years and will keep coming back! Love the Ashby!
