Contemporary American
The Zagat Survey says, "There's much to like about this Washington Park Italian-New American: "good food", a "great patio" & "cheerful" service & ambiance."
An upscale age-diverse crowd mingles at this popular neighborhood restaurant & gathering place east of Wash Park.
A covered strip on the south and west side with heat and misters makes for convivial outdoor seating (you just might see a neighbor). A beautiful lounge is off to the side. 11 beers on tap, 15 in bottles and an excellent wine list at the elegant U-shaped bar. A roomy & elegant banquet room with its own patio and a presentation compatible 80” HDTV complete this restaurant for every occasion.
Dinners are mid-priced, with a nice selection of grilled seafood & steaks & several fancy pasta dishes. The lunch offerings include sandwiches, pizza, salads & pasta.

    The food was good. We had the chargrilled oysters. We were pleasantly surprised by how good they were. We also tried some of the specials. I had the king salmon. It was over cooked but otherwise a very tasty presentation. I would definitely go back.

    There were flies everywhere and when we asked if they could help get rid of them or move us to a different table, they put a long sticky tape strip right above our table/food. The food was not good, nor was it worth waiting forever for and dealing with the bug situation.

    Menu is old and tired. Doesn’t change and needs an update. The ahi tuna salad was expensive, small, and the tuna was dry and overcooked.

    Server seemed impatient and she didn’t ask how our meals were. Not impressed with the halibut special, saturated in butter, over cooked, very large asparagus which isn’t tasty as most people know. Server said the fritters were sold out, yet I received one and my other diner didn’t. Not a lot of freshness for my taste and little pleasure talk with our server. Thumbs down

    Nothing to write home about. Service was non existent the first 15 mins after being seated not even water. Appetizers were good but the entrees were average and the steak overdone. When you wait so long for your food who wants to wait for them to cook it to the right temperature. Save the hassle of finding a parking spot go somewhere else.

    Recently visited Wash Park Grill for lunch. Hadn't been there since I moved years ago and I was NOT disappointed. Pleasant/comfortable surroundings where you can actually have a conversation and be heard. We chose to be seated inside but there were lovely outside options available. 3 of us all ordered different things and all 3 were excellent. Our server was friendly and helpful--just a bit slow getting our food. This is a great alternative to Cherry Creek and I will definitely return.

    No complaints on the food everything was very good. The waitstaff was Not attentive at all. It was a slow night. The restaurant was pretty empty inside. It seem like the wait staff disappeared for most of our meal never really checking back to see how everything was. Maybe they did one time. It seemed understaffed which I guess is a sign of the Times. Hopefully fingers crossed you can get more staff hired. Thank you

    In town for Softball tournament and we always look for local neighborhoods to try. Found WPG. Definitely not disappointed. Arrived earlier than reservations but was seated immediately. Service was excellent and the food suggestions were spot on. We had Bison spare ribs, Colorado chicken piccata and Italian penne. Everything was cooked to perfection and made for a very enjoyable dinner. We will be returning when we are back in the area again.

    We have eaten at Washington Park Grille several times, but this was a terrible experience. I had made Father’s Day reservations for my husband and I and we were immediately seated on a lovely outdoor patio. A server came over and asked for out drink order. After serving our drinks, we never saw her again! After sitting an hour a different server was helping people at the next table who had come in after us. I said, do you think you could help us, our server disappeared. She was very accommodating and said she would take over the service for out table. She took our order, and I asked if they had any bread and butter since we were both pretty hungry at this point. She said they had flatbread and/or garlic bread which they had on the menu. No complimentary bread. When our food arrived after another half hour wait, it was mediocre. I had overly salted onion soup and a grilled chicken sandwich and my husband had a salmon omelet. The food was no more than a C+. The server was embarrassed by our waiting time and gave us our meal for 50% off. We weren’t concerned about the cost, we had hoped for an enjoyable Fathers Day celebratory brunch which didn’t happen.

    Waited an 1hr and 20mins for food to arrive, everyone around us who arrived after us finished before us. Our food arrived. My salad was overly dressed and the lettuce had started to wilt. I assume it had been sat for a while. My husbands burger came, requested medium rare, came well done. By this point we just wanted to leave. The service didn’t really make up for it, our waitress was apologetic that it was late. But it took us asking another member of the team to follow up on our order. Disappointing, I thought this would be a great place for Father’s Day.

    Father day brunch; son is allergic to walnuts and had to make his waffles 3 times before remembering to leave walnuts off. Mistakes happen, but we had to wait a VERY long time before our meal came. Would think manager would come by and apologize, maybe comp a meal or provide an app or something to keep us happy, but no such luck. We tried to keep kids entertained, but it was a long wait for all of us. Most likely won’t be returning in the future. Unfortunate as we used to like this place

    Service was terrible, fish was marginal, waiters and bus service need to be trained on basic dining service. Would NOT recommend it, unless the staff is replaced on the floor and the kitchen.
