Thank you for changing our table after it was clear 8 very energetic young women were sitting near us and we were all of a certain age that wanted to hear each other talk! Moved to a booth and the sound and conversation was fine...still energetic and a busy Saturday evening but that's OK.

We enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch at WPG. The wild mushroom ravioli special was wonderful and especially appreciated that we could order half sized portions. The ravioli was only lukewarm but that was our only complaint. We enjoyed a "tiramisu" type of dessert with ice cream, crushed espresso beans and a yummy coffee syrup.

The food was excellent, love the new menu. We had a little snafu with the initial service but it was immediately corrected and the rest of the service was excellent. My only complaint the restaurant was cold. There was not one table where someone was not wearing their coat through the entire meal. Really detracted from what would have been a beautiful evening.

We waited 10-15 minutes before seeing our waitress...
Then another 5-6 minutes for our drinks. When I received my Sprite it was flat so waited another 10 minutes.
Food came out n not hot just warm.... not sure if chicken was done or not so I didn’t finish it.
Will not be returning or referring to this place.
I was very very disappointed !!!

I have been to Wash Park Grill years ago for cocktails with friends. I had an important busy and social lunch. We sat outside on the patio on a gorgeous fall day. The hostess and service was great and very friendly and prompt. The special was a wild mushroom ravioli. It was amazingly fresh with an incredible sauce. Server offered generous amounts of cheese and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and colleagues. Great Job!!

I have eaten at Wash Park Grille many times. It is always excellent. My twin sister and I were having an early birthday dinner. We both ordered the pork chops. The pork chop was juicy, tender, and delicious. The apple and bacon side was yummy, and the polenta was outstanding. We had a great server, Rocco, who made reccomendations, was friendly, and attentive.

Wash Park Grille has always been one of our favorite local restaurants. The neighborhood is fun and eclectic. The menu reflects that. Great Eggs Benedict. We requested a quiet(er) spot and were seated in the last booth away from the crowd. Very nice.

We had a wonderful time! The seared tuna appetizer was very good but spicy and only 4 pieces. So not worth the price. We also had the flatbread with pricutto which was delicious. I had the camponelle which was full of flavor! Great server too.
