    Food was okay, we had the porterhouse for two with a potato and asparagus. I really expected a little more since it was voted the best steakhouse in 2022. Service is what really killed the experience. The server had no real personality. Every question I asked , I got a blank stare. We spent most of the night just confused , especially since this was our first time and we drove a good distance I wish he would have actually took a little more time providing a better experience.

    My fiancé and I had a lovely time. The food was delicious. Their bananas foster was quite literally the best dessert I’ve ever had. Our waiter was amazing and topped off the great experience. Was also pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t too, too formal of a place. Looking forward to going back!

    A wonderful choice for dinner every night and special occasions. The food and menu selections are outstanding. An unusual array of fish and seafood dishes where the talent and creativity of the chef is apparent in every dish. I had the delicious Thai Cioppino which took me straight back to the flavors of Bangkok with a generous portion of clams, mussels, lobster tail and fish. My husband had the steak which he loved and friends the Ahi tuna which they said was the best they ever had. Our waiter Webster was attentive and helpful throughout the meal. It was particularly nice that the heated closed in patio gave us the social distancing we still prefer during these times.

    This is our 4th time @ Washington Prime, and it met our expectations. We were four people for a very late lunch. Two had filet mignon, one short-ribs and one the tomahawk veal chop. All were perfectly cooked and presented. We shared four sides but three would have been plenty. Among the desserts, the bananas foster was the standout. This is an expensive restaurant, but it always delivers a top quality experience. Highly recommended.

    Best steak in the state! The steak was incredibly tender and flavorful. We had 2 veggie side dishes that were so delicately prepared and fresh-not drowned in butter, cream, or tons of spices. The cocktail list was fascinating and the wait staff incredibly professional and engaging. We will be back!

    Not a place for Xmas eve. Service with Winston was delightful, however, the “patio” left much to be desired, especially warmth. I was told it was decorated, and was expecting a warm, festive, inviting ambience. Far from it. It was cold and lifeless.

    Expected a fine holiday dining experience but limited menu with poor selections, chewy cuts of meat, grey potatoes and marginal service made for a very disappointing meal. There was only one steak choice on the pre-fixe menu and it was tough and hard to cut or chew. Server made several mistakes. All in all for 1200 dollars we were left extremely unsatisfied.

    LOVE THIS PLACE!! Jillian is the best waitress! So friendly, makes our dining experience 10x better every time we go and always gives us the best recommendations! The food here is absolutely to die for. Must haves along with their delicious steak are the broccoli, truffle mashed potatoes, and the crispy masa oysters. Always our go-to special occasion spot.

    All of our dishes were prepared well and our server made sure to accommodate our dietary concerns. Her Thai Cioppino was a nice tasty twist on the Italian fish stew, I had the Bone in Veal Milanese which 1) was huge! And 2) took me back to Cologne Germany where I had yummy Wienerschnitzel. We finished with a delicious Bananas Foster cake. Well done WP, we will be back!

    I made a reservation a week prior to dining and while the online system did state that our party would be seated in the heated patio, there was plenty of room to seat us inside. The patio is nice but right on the road, the traffic and horns were loud. Maybe the reservations should start inside for the people that planned far enough in advance. Then as reservations come in, they work their way to the outside and walk-ins are seated outside. The service was top notch, couldn't have had a better experience in that regard. The food as well, was fabulous!
