The Inn at Little Washington
The late Craig Claiborne of The New York Times called it “the most magnificent inn I’ve ever seen, in this country or Europe, where I had the most fantastic meal of my life”. Patrick’s approach to cooking, while paying homage to the lawmakers of Classical French Cuisine, reflects a belief in “the cuisine of today”, healthy, eclectic, imaginative, unrestricted by ethnic boundaries and always growing.

It was great but I have been waiting to go for so long that I built up expectations in my head that could not be met. It was truly amazing and I will be back.
Food, wine, service all were perfect. Friends have been raving about Inn at Little Washington for years, and it did not disappoint. I'd tell you about each dish, but they will be different when you come. It is pricey, but one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
This place is an EXPERIENCE. It's not just a restaurant. Everything works together to make it an incredible experience, from the super friendly staff, prompt service, attention to detail, exquisite cuisine, artistic touches, the chef's story, the wine list, ... and on and on. Words fail me. Just go. You won't regret it.
Way overpriced! I travel all over the world quite frequently and have experienced numerous Michelin star restaurants. Spending 1k on a 2 hour dinner that is set in a “grandmas house” atmosphere was disappointing. Food was mediocre and I am boggled by what all the hype is about this establishment.
Excellent food and service. Strongly Recommend.
I had an accident with my dessert and I apologized for the mishap to our server. Our server did not respond to my apology which I would have expected. Our 25th Anniversary personalized menu had a mistake in my Husband's name. When I received my phone call to confirm our reservation I tried to spell my Husband's unusual name and she stated it was not necessary. We were not told about the special treat of popcorn that could be served while in the lounge area.
Got this reservation for my parents 55th Anniversary. In short, they are going to be talking about the wonderful experience for the rest of their lives! The staff at the Inn did an absolutely superb job of making them feel special. The food was world class and the atmosphere was everything that is advertised. Yes, it is expensive, but worth every penny. I really appreciate how easy the staff made it to organize this dinner and get the details right. Cannot provide enough positive feedback about how well this very important event worked out. Thanks so much from the entire family!
Very special occasion, excellent food and service. Very very expensive!
Outstanding experience! Well worth the very expensive dinner. Entire staff bends over backwards to make the dinner guests feel welcome. Loved the place!!!
Simply extraordinary. My husband and I go every year for our anniversary. After 15 years, it never disappoints. Every year, we remember all over again how much we live the food, the ambiance, the overall experience.
As always the food and service were top notch. We did the wine pairing with the gastronaut menu. Every course was delicious, and great pairings except wasn't too crazy about pairing a sweet white port with the goose liver. A little on the heavy side. The perfect portion size allows you to savor every course! It's always a treat eating there.
Truly amazing experience, creative delicious food impeccable service and super charming Inn. If that wasn’t enough we were invited to meet Patrick O’Connell in the kitchen. Such a complete evening.
Amazing food experience. Pricey but the best meal I have had.
Experience !!! Fantastic
Fabulous. Just fabulous.
It’s rare that you eat a meal and every part of it exceeds expectations. The Inn at Little Washington is definitely deserving of its reviews. We will be back!
Every single thing about the Inn was delightful! We were served by the very charming Jessie, who was knowledgeable, sweet, funny, and just lovely. Jess - one of the managers was also very kind and checked in on us as well as providing a special treat at the end of the night.
We sat with a view of the garden and each course was delectable. My favorites were the potato crisp canoli and the Alaskan halibut, but really - every single dish was creative and tantalizing to our palettes. My wife felt very celebrated and this will be an extremely memorable milestone celebration for her new coaching business. Thanks to everyone at the Inn and of course Chef Patrick for creating an unforgettable dining experience.
It’s been about 7 years since I was there last. The Inn still has outstanding food and service. Be ready for dinner to take 2.5 hours. Many course of small tastey dishes.
I will say I like the old menu format better. Halibat is my favorite fish, but the first course was raw oysters. No way. Was nicer when you could pick each course.
Fabulous in every way. Great staff, rooms and food.
It was amazing! My favorite restaurant so far, great ambience, food and service. Even it’s pricy but Worth it
Superb! Best in USA
It exceeded all our expectations. Go to this restaurant and spend the night in town. It is worth the price. Best meal for both of us and we lived at ate in Manhatten for many years. You will not be disappointed.
From cocktails in the sitting room, to the cheese cart with Cameron’s hilarious jokes, to all of the different courses to dessert, everything was amazing!!! We even toured the exquisite kitchen after dinner and met Chef Patrick. We were amazed from start to finish by the ambience, food, service and whole experience. It’s not a matter of if we will be back, it’s a matter of when!
Terrific! The walk around the grounds is also well worth it. I am already looking forward to my next visit!
By far the best and most amazing dining experience we’ve ever had. The food - the wine - the detail - the service - the ambiance. When a $1000 dinner is a great value, they are doing something outstanding. Just an unforgettable experience.
Outstanding service. A unique dining experience. Food is the best you’ll ever have. Atmosphere romantic.
Probably the best meal my wife and I have ever eaten.
The best and most unique meal we’ve ever had.
We visited the Inn to celebrate our neice’s Engagement. Her parents had never been so they joined us. The food was outstanding as usual, and the service is always top grade. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable in particular the sommelier who recommended two terrific choices we all enjoyed. We will absolutely return.
The Inn is an amazing experience. The service is excellent - they make you feel at home and the wait staff while young were eager to please. The food as always isn't food as much a work of art not only in its presentation but in the combinations of flavors and textures - just amazing how he does it. We have been several times and are always ready to go back
Walker took care of us like we were family! What a special experience!
The experience was perfect in every way. Great food, excellent service and overall lovely experience. The best!!
Best dinner we have ever had plate for plate.
Very slow service. Waited an hour before 1st course.
The best dining experience I have had in my 25 years of traveling and working in 14 countries. Flavors of food / dishes showcase the star in each course. I enjoyed the variety of special serving dishes. Casually, I asked for recipe for minted English pea soup and received a customized recipe to meet my dietary needs. Chef O’Connell met and spoke with me. Jess provided a tour of the kitchen which is conducted like an orchestra and exudes Zen. Alejandro treated me as if I were a queen. I couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience and food. Thank you with all my heart!
Everything was sheer perfection.
The best restaurant that I've even had the pleasure of visiting. Everything was fantastic
Where are my Open Table points ?
Wonderful experience for our Ten years of marriage! Excellent service, nice to see a woman sommelier. Especially love the cheese cart and 4 amuse bouche before dinner! Wonderful!
Consistently amazing experience. Feel very fortunate to be able to go!
