Meeting a friend we haven't caught up with in years and needed quiet. Was lace at a table where noise was minimal. Mo waiting time with reservation. Waitress attentive and personable. Had top[ notch dinner of Halibut. Sauce superb. Heavy rain kept us there longer than anticipated and that was fine! Key lime pie could be a little more limey but I still ate it all.

Good food. But where was the air conditioning? It was incredibly hot and uncomfortable for such a nice restaurant. We couldn’t figure out why it was so warm. As a result, we have no plans to go back soon.

The food was very good but there were house flies flying around from all of the open doors (presumably) going in and out to service the tables outside. This was a major distraction and likely unhealthy.

This post is based on Sunday brunch, offered either as a full buffet (non-alcoholic drinks included) or off- the menu. But for the great cost of the buffet, it's always our choice. While service was a bit slow to refill drinks, clear plates, that was a first time situation and everything else, food, quality, value-for-money was still outstanding. One of the best such buffets around but some of their daily specials, and regular menu, offer just as strong a deal so if you can't make it on a Sunday morning don't let that stop you.

steak and pork chops were both over cooked compared to what we ordered. Same thing happened to the table next to us, so stay away from meat unless you like well done. Waitress gave us a bit of a discount, but still had to deal with tough and dry food. Other than the meat issue, the meal was good. Band had no energy

Good local Denver restaurant tucked away in a place you would have never thought of. . .possibly especially if you grew up within 5 miles of the place!

We were in such a good mood going in. I’ve been a waitress- I totally get it. The 24$ seafood ravioli wasn’t cooked all the way and I saw the waitress probably a total of a minute through the 2 hour dinner. Didn’t know that dining out can actually ruin a good night.

We thoroughly enjoyed the two times we ate here. Salads were great, spritzes were nice in the heat, fresh fish special was delish and service was perfect. But the best part is they have a lovely, covered outdoor area with misters that is dog friendly so we could dine with our dogs.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. However, the process for ordering an omelette can and should be examine. The current process is:
1. collect an order slip from the omelette station
2. fill out the order slip, find one's serving and hand the ordering slip to server
3. server complete ordering slip and hand it to the cook at the omelette station
4. omelette is prepared, server bring omelette to table, guest then return to the buffett station to collect sides to go with the omelette if they desire to have it hot.
Suggest tailoring the process for ordering an omelette. For example, have the ordering slip on the table or have the server hand it to the guests who desire to order an omelette when taking drink orders and handing out table menu.

Not sure I'd recommend. Food was good, but we received the wrong bill that was double our own. Since no paper receipt was allowed, we could not check our order/bill to see if it was correct. We might have been billed more than what we ordered, but we'll never know. The technology might be good for the owners and servers, but not for the customers.

We love to drive down from Castle Pines and bike around Washington Park… After our ride we always head over to Washington Park Grille. Great casual neighborhood environment and delicious food and drink!

Lunch outside is great. Mostly quiet and easy to have a conversation. Salmon/kale salad was very good. Beer was cold, but the best part was that on a 90 degree day, it was cool outside. They water mist/fan cooling system was absolutely perfect. Parking was surprisingly easy with a less than one-minute walk to the restaurant.

Went here for a birthday lunch...FYI, they don’t do anything for birthdays unless you’re on their mailing list. My friend ordered a dish and requested no shrimp. It came with shrimp anyway and had to be sent back. I tried to order a sandwich from the specials menu, and even though it was early and not at all busy, I was told the sandwich was scratched from the menu (would have been nice to know that right away, rather than when ready to order). I ended up getting a different sandwich, a turkey panini, which was not good...thick, fatty slabs of turkey rather than thinly sliced. The Caesar salad was good but a bit too much dressing. Our waiter didn’t ask once how the food was and only came back to the table to ask if we wanted a dessert menu. Overall, not a good experience. Won’t be back.

I had a business dinner here and Rebecca, our server, did an excellent job of taking care of us. She was attentive but not over bearing and managed to provide the service we needed despite the fact that she was also handling a table of 12. As always, the food was excellent.

The rack of lamb was the best and perfectly cooked. The daily ravioli special was superb. We always enjoy our meals at WPG and have been for many years.

The service and seating were good for a busy evening. The recommendation of the lam chops was good. My wife got the seafood pasta per recommendation, too much sauce too few clams too much pasta. In addition it was late , they brought out the wrong dish. But overall, a good night.

Food took way too long, once it arrived my daughter’s dish was prepared incorrectly. It took another 20 minutes for her correct meal to arrive. My wife and I waited to finish our meal with our daughter. The food was then cold. We ate on patio and the waitress had too many tables. Not a good experience tonight.

Overall the food and service was very good, the only thing that caught my attention was how our server already plugged in the 20% tip for our four-top without giving my Dad a chance to select the tip himself. Something to note, even if he had already planned to tip 20%, it seemed weird that the server had already selected it.

There were almost no vegetarian options. The service was outstanding and we got a table almost right away. But, my daughter and I had very limited options because we are not meat eaters.

Quaint neighborhood fine dining with a solid menu, fair prices, and good wine list. We ate out on the patio and enjoyed a nice dinner with great weather. The ribeye steak was just OK, but the appetizers and desserts were of high quality. Our server, Morgan, was pleasant and attentive. I was visiting family from out of town but wouldn't hesitate a return visit on a future trip!

ALAS ALAS... bringing more family members to the grille has been an endeavor performed over many years...we keep returning because of quality food and service...we arrived Friday for our 1:00pm time,
noted that 3 other tables were empying, leaving one other table occupied and ours. For some reason, it
took 15 minutes to place our HUGE order of 2 salads and 2 burgers...after 20 minutes of waiting I chased
down the waiter who said he didn't know of the delay, but after another 10 minutes, our order was brought to the table...2 salads and 2 burgers...My burger was so VERY WELL DONE that it was extremely dificult to cut with the sharp knife.We won't return, at least for quite some time because of the very poor
quality of service and perhaps lack of concern from the kitchen! We know a problem exists once in a while
but this is no excuse. A factual 40 minute wait...Very Very Sad...David & Rita Cawlfield

I hadn't been to Wash Park Grill for Sunday brunch and was surprised to see a huge buffet as an option. Everything looked great! I opted for an omelet that was a tad overdone but still good. Loved being able to sit out outside and enjoy the wonderful weather.

Brunch was very good. a quite varied and extensive list of foods in the buffet. All was either warm or cold as was supposed to be. Table service was good and quick.
