Whitehouse-Crawford Ratings and Reviews
I had an excellent vegetarian “greens taco”. I can’t beginner to describe how much I loved it!! My husband had the salmon....excellent! We love the atmosphere here; they were very busy but accommodating when the fourth person in our party was a little late for our reservation.
We went for our anniversary and we were disappointed. The staff seemed poorly trained. The tuna was so overdone it was mostly inedible. Our cheese plate was frigid and warmed up just to time to be whisked away by the waitress before we finished it. This restaurant looks like it should be classy and delicious but it missed the mark on both of those. We witnessed another customer chewing out the manager over poor service. Our meal was overpriced and we can't recommend this to anyone.
The ambiance is nice, and the history of the building is fascinating. Other plusses: The fried sweet onion appetizer was delicious, and the cocktails were quite good. Unfortunately, our entrees were just so-so, especially considering the prices. The pork chop was overcooked and unremarkable. The Japanese fried chicken was pretty tasty, but it's fried chicken. Hard to mess that up, and available for much cheaper elsewhere.
When in the region, fine dining is part of the wine and dine experience.
We had high hopes, and the setting, ambience and service is very good and compares to good restaurant in big cities. Unfortunately the food was very poor. Starters were good, and original using regional products like onions, salads, etc. The main courses were also nicely presented but the pork chop was dry and bland, the chicken over cooked and dry, and the wagyu beef over cooked (well done, but requested medium rare). This really put a damper on the evening. Further more the service, while, good, was clearly rushed, to get the second seating for the evening in. We will not go back. I assume enough people pass through for the "once in a blue moon wine thing" and hence such experience may not affect their business.
WE HAD EATEN AT THIS RESTAURANT ON A PREVIOUS VISIT TO WALLA WALLA. SO OUR IMPRESSION GOING IN WAS VERY GOOD. UNFORTUNATELY ON THIS EVENING WE WERE VERY STUNNED AND DISAPPOINTED IN OUR DINING EXPERIANCE. TO START, OUR APPETIZER AND SALADS WERE VERY GOOD. HOWEVER, SERVICE WAS VERY SLOW AND ERRATIC. IT SEEMED THE RESTAURANT WAS SHORT STAFFED. OUR MAIN ENTREES WERE A TOTAL DISASTER. MY WIFE ORDERED SALMON. AFTER OVER 30 MINUTES FROM FINISHING MY SALAD THE MANAGER LET US KNOW THAT THEY WERE OUT OF SALMON AND WANTED TO SUBSTITUTE HER FISH WITH AHI TUNA. FINE. THEN WE SAT AND WAITED. AFTER GETTING OUR SERVERS ATTENTION TO ORDER ANOTHER GLASS OF WINE EACH WE ACTUALLY FINISHED THAT SECOND GLASS BEFORE OUR ENTREES ARRIVED AND WE WERE JUST SIPPING! WHEN OUR ENTREES FINALLY WERE DELIVERED MY FOOD WAS COLD. THE LAMB WAS TOUGH AND DRY AS MY MEAL WAS OBVIOUSLY PREPARED WELL IN ADVANCE OF BEING TOLD THEY WERE OUT OF SALMON FOR MY WIFE'S MEAL. THEY SLATHERED SAUCES ON THE LAMB TO COVER THEIR MISTAKE. MY WIFE'S AHI TUNA WAS OVER-COOKED AND PREPARED AS YOU MIGHT PREPARE THE SALMON DINNER. AS STATED WE WERE JUST STUNNED. OUR SERVER APPROACHED OUR TABLE SEVERAL MINUTES AFTER THE FOOD ARRIVED AND ASKED HOW THINGS WERE GOING. I SUGGESTED THAT MY MEAL WAS COLD AND NOT VERY GOOD. HE DID MENTION THAT THEY COULD REMAKE MY MEAL BUT BY THAT TIME IT WAS GETTING LATE AS WE HAD ALREADY BEEN AT THE RESTAURANT FOR OVER 2 HOURS. WE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME. WE WILL BE VERY RELUCTANT TO RETURN TO THIS RESTAURANT ON FUTURE TRIPS TO WALLA WALLA, WA.
I reserved a table here for our anniversary. We were both looking forward to this dining experience as I hadn't been there in years and she had never been. Let me start by saying that the service was top notch. That being said, my pregnant wife ordered an Asian fried chicken dish that was served raw inside, not once, but twice. They were very good about removing it from the bill and offering free drinks and desserts, however, we will not be returning to this establishment.
We've eaten at Whitehouse-Crawford several times. This last meal and service was the best we've had. Our last experience was not great, but this time they redeemed themselves. From the pacing of the meal to the quality of the food, all top notch. This is the most unique and special event dining in Walla Walla. We will return.
I have to say that the food experience on our last visit wasn't quite in the same league as it had been on previous visits (the last one about a couple of years ago). It started with the menu, which seems to have shrunk in size and, more obviously, ambition. The starters (squash blossom soup, tomato-melon salad) were very good, but the entrees weren't on the same level. While the ingredients were all top notch, the supposedly medium rare salmon was essentially sashimi with a sear on it; fortunately, we like sashimi... but the kitchen clearly dropped the ball here. The lamb chops, also supposed to be medium rare, were also very rare, and the dish was lukewarm by the time it hit the table. A friend who joined us later ordered the chicken, and it looked like it came with the same or very similar side of (admittedly expertly cooked) run-of-the-mill vegetables in a mayonnaise-based sauce as the fish. Not very ambitious, we definitely had come to expect more. The restaurant's main dining room was not overly busy, but there was a large party in a separate room (next to the winery); this may help explain the gaps in execution. All in all, it was not bad, don't get me wrong, but in order to be more in line with the beautiful ambiance and the price level, the menu and the kitchen clearly could use some work.
So disappointed in our dining experience. We had a reservation, were seated late, and were pretty much ignored our entire service. We were a larger party so we knew we would have gratuity added to our meal and it felt that's how our service was reflected. Once we made our orders it took almost an hour just to get soup and salad. We were never asked how our food was, how it tasted or if there was anything we needed. We were given our bills before we were even asked if we wanted dessert. The food was flavorful, seasoned well except the onion strings were a bit salty. They did split everything we ordered which was thoughtful but overall I don't think I can recommend this restaurant which is disappointing since I did research and was recommended this restaurant by locals when we were wine tasting today.
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!
