Alex's Washington Gardens
Walleye special was liked by one diner and not the other. Service was fine and drinks were good.
This is clearly a neighborhood hub. The staff greeted many guests by name. The service was excellent and the food was good. The soft shell crabs and eggplant parmesan specials were outstanding.
Best salmon I’ve had in a long time. Great bread & salad. Loved every part of it.
The food is always good and never disappoints
We love the food at Washington Gardens! The staff is very accommodating and the service is great.
Our family has been a Washington Gardens customer since my wife was a child through our marriage which included all of the prior ownerships. Last Saturday was the most disappointing visit we have ever had. The new ownership has kept the delicious flavors which have experienced over the years but it should not have been an over two hour experience. Having to call over the manager on two occasions to get our salads and finally to have our entrees served is inexcusable. I will continue to watch the reviews before we return.
Outstanding restaurant. Big pours
New owners...very friendly by the way...and same old food...WHICH IS A GOOD THING! Loving the soft shell crab, as always, and the halibut with artichoke and mushroom was great, also.
Great pizza and whitefish. Beth was an amazing waitress tonight.
It's good we had reservations as it was crowded and it was raining. We were sitting in the bar area and it was especially noisy. The restaurant has new owners but the food is the same. Service was slow but we weren't rushed.
Best restaurant ever!!!
Can count on great food consistently!
We have always found it to be our go to place. They make an effort to get to know you. The food seems to be uniformly good.
Washington Garden is my favorite restaurant! The food is terrific, the service is great and the ambience is wonderful!
One of the old time favorites on the North Shore. They have a new owner (Ben) who has kept the menu and employees the same. Reservations highly recommended. Great place.
Great food and great service!
AMAZING FOOD GREAT SERVICE FRIENDLY STAFF CANT WAIT TO GO BACK
We are longtime devotees of Washington Garden, dating back to the Alex/Bill era and then the wonderful Jim years.
Under new ownership, it remains top notch.
Excellent menu, wonderful thin-crust pizza, and a truly extraordinary wait staff.
Be sure to make a reservation so you are not disappointed.
Washington Gardens is the real deal.
My suggestion is to NEVER sit at Table 9. The noise level is terrible. My friend and I love Washington Garden but if I am ever put at that table again, I will leave. Not enjoyable not being able to hold a conversation because of the noise of the kitchen. We do plan on returning because we like the restaurant.
Thank you Alex's Washington Gardens. You provided an ideal ambience and menu for a meal with my family. We had four adults and two children and everyone had a great time. We loved the pizza, ravioli and the cannolis. We will be back soon!
Always great service. Great food. And goid value. Staff from hostess, to server, to buser all do their jobs with smiles. Server was very informed. Super menu and great bar.
Food was delicious and service was wonderful. Had a marvelous time
New ownership at this established eatery. Staff is friendly and warm. Service is prompt. Food is excellent. Will return.
Food continues to be the key. Service was off this night. Seemed understaffed. We'll be back.
One of My All Time Favs
Great as Always...
Too The New Owners ...
Jim sends weekly emails for WG...full of wit and charm and love of his family business...which shows in the family recipes served at the restaurant. Event though it is a bit noisy...it is SO WORTH going to AWG! Highly recommend.
Pizza is the best ever! There is something for everyone. Love it.
I had the teriyaki salmon and it was swimming in the sauce. Way too much of it. My husband had the veal parm and it was not tender. The ambiance was nice and they gave us a quieter table because of a hearing problem. Overall, I would try again. The salad was very good.
Taken Mom out.
Food was delicious as always
Fresh season for Walleye Pike which was prepared using the original recipe of 37 years ago. It was absolutely delicious. One of our favorite “go-to’s”!
Love Washington Gardens, but on this visit the service fell way below what I’m accustomed to at this great neighborhood place. This review reflects only my most recent visit. Usually, the place is terrific.
One of my favorite places! Great for all occasions.
As always, great food, however service was a bit disappointing.
We love this restaurant but service was really slow tonight and they were not busy.
Food and service were superb!
Our daughter was visiting from NYC and always enjoys returning to AWG, as do we. Started with The calamari appetizer. Nicely fried and lightly breaded with a tasty cocktail sauce. For entrees, daughter enjoyed a salad with grilled shrimp while my wife and I had chicken Parmesan. Combine with a delightful Two Sisters Cabernet, a slice of scrumptious chocolate cake to share for dessert, and a wonderful server like Beth; you have the Rx for a very satisfying evening.
Service can be hurried food is decent although not as authentic and old-school as you would expect definitely way too many items on the menu probably about 100 too many
pizza is amazing other entrées can be hit or miss
food and atmosphere is good. they need one additional server during evening dinner times
