Whitehouse-Crawford Ratings and Reviews
Your restaurant was first recommended to us by the Marcus Whitman Hotel next door. After going once to your restaurant we have made sure that whenever in town, we will make reservations there. This last time we brought someone from out of town with us. Great service, will go beyond.
We started with the fried onion rings which were perfect. Then both of us had the beef tenderloin and it was done to perfection - medium rare for us, along with a wonderful local Syrah. I requested vegetables rather than the potatoes and the veggies were perfect. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert but they have amazing, out of the ordinary desserts! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.
Perhaps we weren't there st the right time! We were seated earlier than our reservation which was nice.
We all ordered mojitos as we had been on a wine/vineyard tour that day. Drinks came. I took one drink and on the non-sugared glass rim realized? No simple syrup had been added to the recipe. I've never had a mojitos without simple syrup added. They brought us all a jigger of simple syrup.
Menu was very limited. I figured that as I'd been on-line to look.
Two people had salmon. Very little taste & it was white! Not sure what kind of salmon it was.
The BEST thing was the squash soup (highly recommend) the $8 onion appetizer (very yummy) even a member of the group who doesn't like onions loved this!
The $43 filet with mashed potatoes was the best entree & dessert rocked!
I'd like to hope I can try this spot again. I had so many folks say they loved it!
I would recommend it to anyone as their experience could be totally different.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here this past Saturday night. Our server, Michael, upon learning this was our first visit to Whitehouse-Crawford, explained the tasting menu and was very helpful with our wine selections--his recommendations were perfect! Service was excellent, as was the food. My squash blossom soup was extraordinary, and Bob said the calamari was cooked exactly as it should be. The King salmon was quite different from other types of salmon I have had but quite tasty. Bob's tenderloin steak cut like butter--yumm! We never felt rushed nor were we neglected. We definitely will be back!
Within 5 minutes of entering Whitehouse-Crawford, I fully understood and experienced the word 'content'. Right off the bat, the ambiance was on point, meaning the music perfectly complemented the environment, the service was top notch, the food and drinks were out of this world delicious, and the overall vibe of the place made you feel like you were the only party/group in the the whole establishment. Kudos to the chefs, the managers, the waiting staff, and the bartenders for making my experience one that I will never forget. Cheers to all that you do at Whitehouse-Crawford and here's to the many more visits to come! :-)
This last visit was our 4th. We do not live in Walla Walla and when we're there we plan on eating at WC. It was a quiet night and the manager's attention was lovely. But our meals were less than warm. The waitress said "all meals are picked up immediately. We declined manager credit as we ate our meal. My steak dinner was delicious. My spouse's salmon was called marbled but was pink salmon which is an Alaska Spring salmon run. Or else it was Columbia River far upstream. It was horrid. And the accompanying vegies were a weird sweet combo. We both think that the meal was over priced for the quality and service. We were very disappointed.
service was iffy - rushed away with the food order without taking the wine order which was off putting.
Menu - nice and simple but would have preferred one more focused on local produce.
not as smart as it used to be - man there in shorts and a singlet !
Other than that a good night but hard to get over the above points
Walla Walla has a restaurant scene that is all above what you would expect, but it is because of the wine industry. This is one of those very nice restaurants. The food is very good, the service is superb and the ambience is very nice. The menu varies and is always quite good.
Every thing was excellent
Warm spinach salad
Steamed buns with pork
Japanese style fried chicken
One of the best meals I have ever had, perfectly prepared and seasoned, elegant but unfussy. The service was great. I would drive to Walla Walla, from Seattle, to eat here again.
Five of us had a Friday night dinner here. Our table was set up and waiting when we arrived. The restaurant is large, warehouse height ceilings, open kitchen, good lighting, comfortable and old iron works. Service began well but it slackened off somewhat, plus a technical mishap in the kitchen slowed the meal, with apologies. The food was creative, original, and done well. Crispy onions should be shared with everyone at the table! A popular place and friendly. Recommended as one of the best in town and I would agree. I shall never forget being introduced to Barolo Chinato!
We were with friends in Walla Walla and Whitehouse-Crawford was a very short walk from our hotel. It ended up being a wonderful find. I had the greens tacos which were outstanding. It was one of the best vegetarian meals I've ever had. My husband had the salmon which was made to his specifications. His side dishes were equally delicious including the vegetables that were cooked to tender-crisp doneness. Our friends were well satisfied with their meals, too. The pace of the service left us ample time to visit without interruption, which was just what we were looking for. The wine list was filled with excellent vintages and labels. It was the best meal we had while in Walla Walla. After dinner, we enjoyed viewing the historic photographs and reading the history of the building, which is on the historic registry. If you want good food, quiet ambience, knowledgeable servers, plenty of time to eat and visit, and history, this is the place.
Great service, fantastic food, and my guests loved every minute of it! You truly have a wonderful dining experience with WHC, which is a family favorite. Everything from the appetizers through the salad, entrée, and dessert was wonderful-- and all accompanied with truly wonderful service.
We had not been to this restaurant in a number of years and wanted to return to enjoy it once again. In fact, it was a focus of our short trip to Walla Walla, WA. We had made a 6:15 P.M. dinner reservation and upon arrival were seated promptly. The restaurant is a single large open room with high ceilings that resulted in a slightly elevated noise level, but not enough to limit casual conversation. The tables were covered with nice starched white linen table cloths, adding to the ambiance of the restaurant. Our table was located adjacent to a wall of windows that allowed viewing the wine making equipment and barrels in the adjacent winery. Service was prompt and our waitress was very friendly and courteous. We chose the cheeses and crackers appetizer. This was made up of three cheeses and some homemade crackers--very tasty and a great way to start dinner. I had the Japanese Fried Chicken for dinner. It was very flavorful and tasty and presented boneless with some peppers and beans. The chicken was breaded and was not at all greasy. My wife chose the pork loin. It was nicely done, juicy and tender. We both enjoyed our entrees very much.
Great restaurant, amazing food. Needs a dedicated host/hostess. Would have liked being asked for a seating preference since the restaurant was mostly open. Servers changed several times during meal. Wasn't checked on after main course service until nearly complete. Slow to notice and refill empty drinks.
This restaurant is in a historical building that has been refurbished into a restaurant. The bar area is a bit small considering the size of the restaurant, but it was very busy the night we were there. My husband and started our with some of the restaurant's signature cocktails which were great. The menu is very limited with an emphasis on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. My husband had a tuna entrees and I had pork tenderloin with a sweet cherry sauce. Everything was perfectly cooked. The chefs are visible in the dining room and you can actually sit at a bar area and watch your meal being prepared. If you would like bread with your meal, you will need to ask for it, but when it arrives, it is absolutely delicious. We did not have room for dessert. Service was excellent.
My husband and I ate at Whitehouse Crawford for our last dinner during our visit to Walla Walla. It had been recommended by our innkeeper and by a couple of people with whom we spoke during Walla Walla area wine tastings. We were pleased with our decision to eat there. James provided expert service and we enjoyed all our meal selections -- fried onions, soup of the evening, spinach salad with smoked trout, taco greens, Japanese fried chicken, and house made sorbet and ice cream for dessert. An outstanding experience in all respects.
White Hall Crawford is a very special place. There is great attention to detail and quality. They offer very creative and healthy choices. Each dish is prepared with obvious attention to detail and quality. The setting is relaxing and unique and the service is with energy and flair.
