we are regular customers but due to covid have not been there since summer. we were celebrating our 39th anniversary (as we do each year there)
I ordered the new england clam chowder... was shocked that there was bacon in the soup? not sure why meat would be put into a normally meat free item.
The service was extremely slow..... there was a very long time frame between getting drinks, app, dinner and dessert. so were there a lot longer than we wanted to... only due to covid... also observed a couple at the bar area walking around WITHOUT masks... nobody approached them and request they put one on...... Hoping if we come back again soon, these situations will improve. thanks for your time.

Although it’s dinner, I always call it a date. Washington House bent over backwards during this Pandemic. Thank you to all the staff for being sensitive to the needs at hand. The food is always delicious from apps to dessert. It’s comfort food with a creative twist.

If they ever go back to outdoor dining they need to figure out the heating situation and or consider putting up a tent. The heaters they use were not appropriate for the outdoor experience

Responded on January 4, 2021

Thank you for your feedback, Jon. While we do offer limited outdoor dining, we do realize that it is mighty cold out now! We will try to devise a warmer space somehow-We have a few ideas still to try! However, as of Monday, January 4th, indoor dining is once again allowed! We have plenty of space inside to spread out guests and keep you safely distanced from those not in your “bubble.”

Due to state requirements we enjoyed our lunch outdoors. The weather cooperated with a sunny day and Mid 40s temperature along with a comforting heater. The service was great along with New England clam chowder, shrimp and crab cakes and a Cubano sandwich. All were excellent!
This was our first time at Washington House but will not be our last.

Hostess was helpful. We were going to be seated in a lovely outside tent. It had 3 sides so would not be safe due to COVID. She agreed to seat us on patio which would be safe! She allowed us to stay and dine there.

Our waiter, Dylan was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the interesting history of the Washington House as well as the menu items. We tried a dessert after he described it to us and it was fabulous. Then he told me, the dessert would be free because I was celebrating my birthday. We had a great lunch at the Washington House.

Service and food was just mediocre. It wasn’t exciting and the service wasn’t great. I had a great experience there in the past but this visit didn’t meet my expectations. I was disappointed. I won’t rush back.
