Consistently very good food with a great variety of choices. Wait staff is always friendly
and accommodating. It's absolutely "The" place to go for special occasions or when going to the theatre.

Service was terrible. We waited for food for almost an hour. We got bread right before they brought out food. Atmosphere needs updating. I would never go back.

It was a busy night and the wait staff may have been short; service was a bit slower than normal. It took awhile to get our food, and when we did it was apparent that my meal had been sitting waiting for my wife’s to be prepared: my plate was very warm, where her’s was not, and my duck had become a bit overdone. Not terrible, but not what we’ve come to expect from The Washington House.

Prix fixe dinner for Valentines Day was well done. Many entree choices and delicious starters and desserts complimented the meal. Attentive staff and reasonably priced. Next door to the Sellersville Theater so perfect selection.

Wasn't sure how to answer the noise level rating above. The noise level was fine and I was able to have an easy conversation with my date.

Great food and good value. The ambiance is intimate, fairly quiet and nicely lit.

We came for dinner prior to a show next door at the theater. As always, the meal was great and the service was stellar!

Always a pleasure to dine here. The seasonal menu always has quality items on it and all are impeccably prepared. A fine list of beers, wines and cocktails are also available. Right next door the the Sellersville Theater Sonora a perfect place pre-show also.

We went there on a Thursday night before a music show next door at the Sellersville Theater. Service was prompt and attentive. When I asked about the Australian red wine I was given a sample to try (it was great!). The beer list was very extensive. There was a special menu of cajun food to go with the Beausolei concert that night. So cool! The surf and turf was fried catfish with steak and grits. Delicious! We also shared some items from the regular menu. The arugula salad had candied pecans, fresh blueberries and strawberries and these amazing fried feta balls. The rice and spinach balls did not disappoint. We ended the meal sharing the caramel pecan pie. The waitress and other servers were pleasant and they got us out in plenty of time to get next door for the concert.

The staff was welcoming and the atmosphere was cozy and casual. The food was fantastic and prices are reasonable. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto which was awesome! And my date had the lamb which was fabulous! The carrot cake to dessert was to die for! Definitely a great stop before attending a show at the theater next door. I would be sure to make reservations as there was definitely a full house. But for as crowded as it was the service did not suffer, excellent service!

Fabulous food. A tad pricey but to be fair-expected for a fine dining restaurant such as this. Thanks for a delicious evening!
