    This is a delightful place to have a quiet romantic evening. They have separate rooms for groups. It is a historic inn with low light, great service, and excellent food. The ravioli/shrimp appetizer is outstanding but too much for one person. Rack of Lamb was done perfectly and Crab cakes are always worth it. Seared Halibut special was also outstanding. We splurged with Bananas Foster which was also a hit.

    We've always enjoyed the General Warren Inn for special occasions since it is a pricey restaurant but this special they ran was phenominal. Our reservation was for 5:30 to take advantage of the special pricing. $26 per person for the Prie Fixe menu. We thought that the portions would be reduced since the price was reduced. Well, believe me they did not reduce anything. As a matter of fact, I don't remember the portions being as large as they were. The meal was fantastic!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/24/2009
    This was the most overpriced horrible meal I have ever had. When everything on the menu turned out to have mushrooms in in it, I ordered off the "first course" menu instead. My butternut squash ravioli's came out in the smallest bowl and they tasted burnt and un-edible. The waitress forgot to bring me my drink after about ten minutes and then rudely processed our gift card, cash and credit card payment at the end of the meal. She announced very loudly that she did not understand what to do with all the items in the checkbook. Really? take the gift card and the cash off the meal, then charge the rest - I will never return to this cold, overpriced horrible restaurant ever. I do not recommend.

    We had a group of six for dinner on a Friday evening. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere, and the excellent service. Particularly surprising was the portion, quality and reasonable cost of the Prix Fixe dinner. I had the Pepper encrusted, seared Tuna which was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the General Warren Inn.

    This is one of the few restaurants that still do tableside service. My husband and I enjoyed the Caesar salad prepared tableside - with egg yolk - as we used to enjoy years ago. It was tasty and fresh, and we were none the worse for the fresh egg taken from the refrigerator just before being used in our salad. We also enjoyed the chautebriand cut tableside and served with freshly prepared vegetables. The presentation was beautiful and the meat was melt in your mouth delicious. Do not pass up the coconut custard pie for dessert. It was the best we have tasted anywhere! When we said we would share it, the kitchen divided it for us and presented it on two plates with all the proper accoutrements. Service was friendly and efficient.

    My fiance and I were interested in having our wedding here but had never eaten their food. Well, we showed up to check the food out and had terrible service from a pretentious waitress. I watched her treat her co-workers like second-class citizens. She practically ignored us so that she could wait on a larger group (clearly in it for the tip). I had to ask for a refill of my drink three times before I actually got it (with no appology for the wait). The service was so poor that it ruined the experience completely and we're looking into other options for our wedding. The food was bland and not interesting at all. I have had better service AND flavors at cheap chains...I wonder if Denny's does weddings??? haha

    General Warren Inne was a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere warm and inviting. Service was a bit slow, as there seemed to be only two members of the wait staff. Perhaps they were short staffed that evening. At any rate, the slow service is forgiven--we would definitely dine there again. The beef wellington was amazing.

    A wonderful dining experience. Be prepared to spend a little more money than usual, but it's worth it. You certainly want to miss out on the appetizers or desserts. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive (thankfully not overly attentive like at some fancier restaurants). The atmosphere is lovely. Also, since its is dressy casual, you don't have to get decked out to have a five star meal.

    The General Warren Inne is a charming place - a great choice for a romantic dinner and a special occasion. You really can't go wrong. The food was very good, with the highlights being the scallop entree and the coconut cream pie. The service was good but our server seemed a bit more attentive to the larger parties of what seemed like more established patrons. The atmosphere was warm. The fireplaces lend a glow to each room. Of all the dining areas, the one we were in was my least favorite just due to the high ceilings. But these are nits - if you want a consistently superb evening out with a spouse, date, or couples, this is the place to go. Overall, the bill seemed reasonable, too.

    Consistently extraordinary for the more than 20 years I've been coming to this wonderful restaurant. Many classics on the menu -- chateaubriand, beef wellington -- that are prepared superbly, and their crabcakes are so good I'm starting to drool as I write this. If you're looking for nouvelle cuisine at the latest hot spot, this isn't your place. But if your focus is on the best quality ingredients and precise preparation, and on the value of a well-maintained tradition of excellence, this is your place. The charming ambiance and friendly yet professional wait staff (some of whom have been there for more than 20 years -- that means so much) add to the enjoyment of this exceptional and unique restaurant.

    The food is always good at the General Warren Inne, and the dining room is pleasant and attractive. Usually the service is excellent; this time only, my small group had a waitress who was efficient enough, but she was too obviously wearing the attitude that we were a great trial to her, and if she had her way she wouldn't bother. the only other problem?--they charge a bit much for Scotch. they had a Macallan 12 at $18. There are still good restaurants in the area where you can get it for $12 or even a bit less. I don't know about the rest of their bar prices. But, above all, excellent food.

    Food overall was excellent. Service was excellent (Gwen and Kirk). Peppercorn steak was too spicy hot - could be toned down a little. Shrimp cocktail was unremarkable - not a good value for the price. Seafood paella was wonderful. We were seated next to a group of 8 that were a bit noisy. You might consider separating large groups from tables for 2-4. I don't mean to sound negative - it's just my opinion. I would go back. There are menu items I'd like to try.
