General Warren outdid themselves again! The food was wonderful. They did a great job with Covid restrictions. We were warm and comfortable outside dining. Our server Gwen was the best! Thank you for a great New Year’s Eve.

I had reserved a bubble but when I got there they said I didn’t call to confirm. I didn’t know I had to call . I confirmed twice online and was never told I needed to call. So the main reason for going was foe naught. The food was average and definitely not worth the price. Mine had so many peppercorns that that was all I tasted. My husbands halibut was so salty it overtook the taste of the dish. My cheesecake was dry and old. You can tell that they are closing for “renovations”. I won’t be back even if they do reopen.

We celebrated our Golden Anniversary last evening. Despite the frigid temperatures, the enclosed globe was comfortable. The space heaters were effective and provided warmth though we were appropriately dressed for outdoor dining. A beautiful evening to celebrate the occasion.
Thank you , General Warren Inn , for you continued excellence.

We were greeted by the owner, Patrick, upon our arrival for dinner FRI 12/11/2020. Our server, Jeff, was terrific - - friendly, polite, proper; made the dinner even that much more enjoyable. Our food and beverages were delicious - - everything arrived timely and as we ordered. And the atmosphere was seasonal in this historic building (indoor dining). An absolutely terrific evening!

This is the worst review I have ever written, and it’s for one of my favorite restaurants! To note, not only have I dined at GW for over 20 years, since the pandemic I have supported them through frequent dining and numerous recommendations to friends.
I met two friends for an early supper in their outside tent. Yes it was a cold day but several previous dining experiences taught us that GW was more then capable of providing comfortable outside dining in cold weather. Upon arrival, the tent did not have its heaters on and was uncomfortably chilly. When we inquired about why the heaters weren’t turned on in time to make it a nice place to be we were told that they didn’t want to waste propane and were trying to conserve it. Needless to say, the three of us were sorely disappointed with this attitude, especially since all of us have championed this restaurant during this difficult year.
While we are now faced with another shutdown, and our dining options are even more limited, we shall think twice before returning.
This review breaks my heart since I love their food and ambiance. It’s a good reminder that it’s the people that are most important to the success of any business.

We have been going to the General Warren Inne for over 40 years. It has always been an excellent fine dining experience, and last Saturday night was no exception. The prices are very reasonable, and the server was fantastic. We had appetizers, filet entrees and desert with two beers, and glass of wine and a bottle of wine for a little over $200.00. For fine dining, that's a great value. We highly recommend it.

Also, their rooms are very nice for an over night mini vacation.

Service was excellent. The ambience was amazing. The outdoor dining in the igloo was awesome. They have done an incredible job making the most inviting experience in
the midst of a really difficult time for all. The food was very good. The scallops and filet were cooked just right. Do not care for polenta would rather have had risotto. The nightly gnocchi with braised pork special was different, not a favorite. The cannoli cake dessert was delicious. Wine selection was excellent. Loved the covered deck/bar area too. Would definitely go back. A lot to enjoy. A fantastic birthday dinner.

We were disappointed that we couldn't dine in the older, main rooms. There was a wedding at the time. I would have chosen another date if I had known; missed the "country" ambience .
