we have dined at the GW many times and have always enjoyed the food and service.However the kitchen this evening was not on point. They overcooked my wife's filet twice at which point we were done.They did not charge her for her meal, however the evening was over.

Our entire experience at The General Warren Inn was phenomenal. We've searched high and low for a wedding venue that feels right, needless to say we have been less than thrilled (for one reason or another) up until now. The Spring House Terrace's romantic ambiance, incredible food and impeccable service is remarkable. We can't wait for our upcoming wedding. Thank you Tim for being so hospitable at the drop of a hat!

The service is very good and the place is lively. The sauces were over-salted, the roasted potatoes were mush, and the beef wellington crust was way under-baked. Good wine selection, great dessert.

Thank you so much to the manager and waitress who helped me navigate my handicapped friend into the restaurant and seated, and then into my car after dinner. I hadn't been able to get my friend out of the house for months after she suffered a disastrous fall and I wasn't sure I could handle her difficulties. The staff at General Warren went beyond the call of duty in helping me. Aside from that, the meal was excellent: I loved the snapper soup and the beef Wellington; the latter has been a favorite of mine but is rarely offered in restaurants. My friend enjoyed the halibut. Again, my appreciation to the manager and waitress for their incredible kindness.

General Warren is lovely, the setting is perfect for a special dinner. The downstairs and side "sun room" are especially attractive. Unfortunately our server left a lot to be desired. Even before we had settled into our seats or looked at the menu, she was at the table asking what we wanted to drink. We asked for a few minutes to decide; when she returned she told us the specials and started to walk away until we called back to order drinks. Cocktails arrived one by one (for a party of 4), 3 drinks were so haphazardly put on the table they spilled on menu and table. Server did not notice or comment. On the upside, the food was good as usual. The trout entrée especially received positive comments. We all had been at General Warren on other occasions and will probably be back again and hope we get a different server.

The General Warren Inn was very good, the service need a little work but wasn't terrible. The food was very good, Snapper and French Onion soups were excellent, my wife ordered the 8 oz. filet and it was a little chard on the outside the inside was at the correct red/pinkness. Although some people might like the chard exterior of the steak she does not.

Overall we were happy with the meal and would recommend this restaurant.

Came here for my parents 50th anniversary. The ambiance was great. Food was hit or miss, some entrees were very good while others were oily and not as tasty. Our server was extremely good and accommodating to our children. My main complaint is that I had called in advance to let the restaurant know it was a special occasion, but they did not mention/mark it in any way.

I am flabbergasted. Expected exquisite everything from this restaurant. So far from getting that. When I reserved, requested quiet table because of profound hearing loss and need to use strong hearing aids. When we waited to be seated, Maitre’D (owner, fairly sure) made snide comment about how he doesn’t want to have a quiet table on a Saturday night. Strike 1. Our server had table of 10 and was unable to give us the attention we would normally expect. My friend and I both ordered filet mignon. Both medium well. Hers was fine. My was was medium at best. No one came back to check. 10 minutes passed. I had to get up and go into a hallway to tell my server. Strike 2. Meat taken away. My friend finished her meal and 20 minutes later my meat was returned as a charred mass that was inedible. Strike 3. I took two bites and that was it. Meantime potatoes were ice cold and so were green beans. Had to flag down server again. Told her I never waste meat (which is a precious gift from an animal) but the filet was inedible. Strike 5. She offered another dish which I declined. No manager ever appeared to apologize. In fact, she suggested I call tomorrow to complain. I said I would not be doing that. If a fine dining restaurant owner does not see fit to apologize when food was ill-cooked why would I call the next day. Strike 6. The valet parking gentlemen were very polite. I can recommend GWI if you’re just looking for a place to park your car.
