Joshua Wilton House
Noise level and music selection not appropriate for "fine dining"!!!
Our table was ready for us upon arrival. All of the staff were most friendly and courteous. The decor and ambiance were most pleasant. The food was excellent. The service was attentive, but not rushed. We had a nice, leisurely, celebratory meal.
Always a wonderful dinner in a beautiful setting! Look forward to our return.
Our second visit to Joshua Wilton house was just as great as our first visit. Excellent service and food along with a beautiful environment. This made for an excellent dining experience.
Limited menu but food was excellent. Good service. Have been there before several times had 3 courses. Steak tartare. Gnocchi and filet mignon. And dessert creme brûlée berry dish.
We came to the Joshua Wilton House to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. All three courses were superb. Our server, Mary, was very well informed about the menu and daily specials. She is both friendly and professional and made our dinner very enjoyable on a special occasion.
Just fabulous as always!
Bartender was great , very nice & attentive .
Disappointed right away that you were out of the rack of lamb... Was looking forward to it. Will try again but felt overall a little underwhelmed ?
We’ve been enjoying this gem for years. It’s even the venue where my parents rehearsal dinner was! Totally spectacular and always unique!
Great food, great service. The date night menu is the best kept secret in Harrisonburg. The front room is too quiet. Everyone can hear each other's conversation.
A very nice experience.
Food was nicely prepared and service spot on. Not far from a 5 star rating.
This is a charming place for dinner. My two companions' main dishes were excellent; my salmon was so-so. My principal complaint is that for a restaurant this high-scale, they should have citronella candles or some other method of deterring the mosquitoes for outside diners. They provided us with bug spray but it was far too late and we were not the only table of diners being attacked by mosquitoes.
It was our first opportunity to enjoy the Joshua Wilton House. Everything about it, made this a special evening. We look forward to coming back on our next visit to Harrisonburg.
Such a romantic evening. Lights could’ve been turned down to increase the ambiance and set a more romanic tone but otherwise it was awesome!!
This restaurant is one of the best meals I have ever had. Classic and creative for both the culinary options and cocktails. A great experience for a nice evening out or special occasion.
My stay at Joshua Wilton was superb, as usual!
I've stayed there at least 4 times previously.
Special attractions: the beds are very comfy, and the dinner
was truly a gourmet treat!
We celebrated our 42 wedding anniversary. Wonderful food and service will defiantly return.
This always a winner. If you’re looking for fine dining in Harrisonburg, look no further. Great food, great companion, nice wine list, as well as Jake and Bill. What more could you ask for on a Saturday night?
Great food in a wonderful setting. A very nice wine list and great service made our dinner wonderful. Highly recommend.
Best dining experience of the year including Hilton Head Island, SC, and Jekyll Island, GA. Thank you.
Our new #1 restaurant in Harrisonburg! Excellent service, great food and enjoyable atmosphere in garden area. Wished us Happy Anniversary in chocolate script on our dessert plate. Nice touch!! We’ll be back and a hearty recommendation for anyone looking for a quality dining experience.
Wife and I went out for our Anniversary. Best Old Fashion I every had. Food and service OUTSTANDING. The only small missed detail dining room could use some high and low cleaning.
The atmosphere, food and service are flawless at Joshua Wilton. Lovely location for an enjoyable meal.
My wife and I came here as part of a weekend getaway and we loved it. The food was fantastic, the staff was wonderful, and there is a nice lounge and bar to have a drink or two before or after dinner, if you like. We'll definitely be returning.
A perfect dining experience! We chose the mid-week “date night” menu which included an appetizer, entree and shared desert. With a bottle of wine, the bill was $100 for first class service and food with wonderful ambiance. We will return!
As to our Date Night Tuesday (Anniversary), the best parts were the beginning and the end. In the English club cozy bar we had Sidecars, the best at least since Harry’s Bar in Paris. Our bartender was knowledgeable and charming. We shared a dessert—Crème Brulée—again, as good as any iteration we have had in a long time and we were pleased the sugar had been torched to candy glass.
As to dinner, I had the (so hard to find on this side of the pond) Steak Tartare for an appetizer and Duck Breast for the entree, while my husband opted for the PEI Mussels followed by Sea Scallops. It was all quite good, but his may have been a somewhat better choice given that the beef and the duck were both, in and of themselves, a little blander than I would have liked. The presentation of all the food was excellent. We also shared a bottle a Sauvignon Blanc, which we thought a good value, but I wish we had gone with the Prosecco.
The food was outstanding;. I enjoyed the special cucumber gazpacho that was the best and so refreshing for a summer evening as a starter. Service was excellent and we felt welcomed into a celebratory and intimate space. Look forward to the next time I can celebrate a special evening there.
Awesome place with awesome food , service, ambiance. Totally recommend to my friends and others.
Joshua Wilton has been our top choice to celebrate special occasions for 30 years! It never disappoints and continues to provide an exceptional culinary experience. We love that they keep the menu and atmosphere updated and competitive with today's culinary trends. We now enjoy their date night specials every Tuesday. Why wait for a special occasion?
We had a wonderful “date night” special that is offered on Tuesdays. The food was delicious! We both had the $35 3-course special and split a dessert. The mussels were delicious and the sea scallops were beautifully presented and yummy, too. The chocolate dessert was decadent so we were happy it was small and we split it! Will definitely be back.
We had our Wedding reception here 31 years ago. We just celebrated that. Fantastic for 31 years!
Great food and atmosphere. Service is very attentive but not hovering. Steak was cooked to perfection and the chef's fish special was a wonderful combination of flavors. The restaurant and bar also have an excellent wine selection. Highly recommend this restaurant if you want an amazing meal.
My husband and I chose Joshua Wilton House to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. The service was excellent, with both the waitstaff and hosts consistently making sure everything was to our satisfaction. Our meal was excellent, and even included local ingredients. I was very impressed with the wine selection, as well. Joshua Wilton House is an excellent choice for an upscale, yet down-to-earth, dining experience.
Are experience was top notch. The food well prepared, and the service was attentive
Best dinner in a year.
Excellent food; friendly service but slow. Overall a delightful evening
The food was very tasty and presented well. Portion sizes were good and prepared to perfection. Waitress was helpful and made informative recommendations base on conversations of likes. Would definitely visit again.
The food was amazing. I had the sockeye salmon and was so impressed. The waiters are very knowledgeable and the wine was good enough that we joined the wine club!
Service was attentive but hurried as the dining room got busy
Wonderful evening. The food was prepared to perfection. The service was professional and not overbearing. The attention to detail unmatched. Thank you for a great evening. We shall return and recommend to many others.
