Absolutely wonderful!
Our delightful Ariana took great care of us. When my wife wanted a customized drink, Ariana not only was happy to help, she made a couple of suggestions, and then followed up! It was wonderful from arrival to departure.
They wait staff clearly enjoy each other, and it shows. A happy dining experience starts with happy staff, and when the maître d'hôtel departs with an “I Love You All”, with universal staff smiles and waves...you have something very special.

Seemed overly packed for a county in high risk during COVID. Also not enough staff to serve as many customers as there were.

Well this was our umpteenth time eating here but this time for my wife’s birthday. We have to tell you that we were so happy with the overall experience. The wine was over the top and those Brussel sprouts were absolutely amazing. Never had anything tike that before. We are coming back just for those:). Also that fish, sturgeon, wow, never had it but it is on the A list now.

Finally, from check in and all the way through service we were treated top notch. We felt so safe eating here we will be back again.

Thank you.

I would highly recommend making reservations, we were able to be seated shortly after our reservation time. The food was exceptional, the Brussel sprouts were delicious. Hayley was our server and she was sooo delightful and made amazing drinks.

The location is great and plenty of parking, we were very happy with our experience and will be back.

We loved the outdoor patio dining -- it was perfect with heaters and a fire at our table to keep us nice and warm on a winter evening.

Overall our experience was nice, however, the price of the special Bloody Mary we all ordered had gone up. Also, we felt like we were being rushed out since they were trying to keep up with business. We would’ve ordered food, but two different wait staff came through to clear off our table.

We visited for Valentines Day dinner. Our server was perfect; just the right combination of friendliness and helpfulness while not at all intrusive or overzealous. She timed her check-in's well, was helpful in answering questions and and suggestions, and was always cheerful and courteous. The food and cocktails were top-notch. The steak was cooked perfectly and actually tasted like steak, the buffalo cauliflower was great as an appetizer, the Ahi tuna carpaccio was fantastic as a first course, and the toffee caramel cake was sublime. I thought pricing was perhaps a tad on the high side, but not unreasonable or out of expectations for Bend. Overall, we had a fantastic experience.

The only fault I found during my recent dining experience was that the hazel nuts on
my chocolate desert were soggy - they should have been toasted and crispy/crunchy.
I would recommend and order again what I selected.

We went for a socially distanced Saturday brunch on the patio. Fabulous egg dishes including a huge breakfast burrito with green chile and fennel sausage. Huge portions...great service and plenty of space heaters to keep you comfortable. Highly recommend Washington Dining & Cocktails. We were finishing up Dry January so cocktails will wait until our next visit. We have always had a great Food and Beverage Experience @ WASH.

Service was amazing. Everyone was so nice! Outside seating was set up well, food came quickly. We all ordered different things and all was amazing, except the burger I ordered. The patty was like a ball of meat on a giant bun, so my burger was mostly bread and delicious cheese sauce. Overall would go back just might not get the burger again. Chicken was delicious! I would still recommend!

Washing restaurant continues to be a star in these Pandemic days. As restaurants struggle to stay in business, Washington is fortunate with their location. They have a nice outdoor patio which is fairly private and shut off from the street noise. But what makes them special is the quality of the food (executive Chef from Drake) and the friendly, efficient and warm service of their staff.

New Year's Eve Dinner with my girlfriend was excellent. Service was very attentive and our dinner's were prepared perfectly (sockeye and tenderloin/lobster). The manager even checked on us which is always a nice touch! Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I decided that we needed a break and The Washington is one of our favorite restaurants in Bend. We like how it feels kind of like you are at home.

We had 10,000 Opentable points to use so why not. Use them or lose them.

Our wait person was great. She was friendly and efficient under the current circumstances. Everyone had masks on and you could tell the establishment was well sanitized.

Of course the food was amazing. Salmon, Kale salad and Brussels sprouts. They never over cook the salmon here which can be a problem.

Thanks again for a fun time.
