My husband and I were celebrating a special anniversary. We did let the restaurant know when making the reservation. I cannot even tell you our waitress’ name as she never shared it with us. Between appetizers and entrees, our plates were not cleared. No bread was brought to our table. Our food was brought out by other servers. One of our dishes was supposed to have cauliflower rice in place of mashed potato. We had to ask the busboy to rectify the mistake. All that been said about the shoddy service, our food was delicious. Juicy lamb chop appetizers followed by equally delicious entrees. Such a shame about the service.

Six of us went for high tea as a birthday celebration. WE were a little disappointed. The teas were awful, and felt the amount of food and quality for that price just was not there.

It was a very lovely dining experience. The food was delicious and the ambiance was just beautiful. We only had one minor problem with our order but it was quickly fixed and our waitress was so kind about the mix-up. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and just a wonderful place to go and enjoy the food and friends.

The two meals my wife and I selected were not up to par. The glazed Pork Chop was under cooked and very fatty. The Prime Rib had minimum flavor, tough, and fatty. The two fish meals taken by our guests were outstanding' Thanks for small favors.

I will come back to this place when the weather is warmer. The outside area really looked inviting. The inside is nice, the tables were a little tight. Menu was pretty good and the food was tasty, a little pricey and the place felt a little old lady like.

Excellent menu with good choices for Restaurant Week. And, large portions - which is not always the case with others in RW. Wonderful, fresh, large mussels. Perfectly done chicken schnitzel. And, with a balmy, warm night outside, you can't do any better.

Sunday brunch, the food choices, quality and preparation were all very good. The Inn is a unique place, beautiful old colonial Inn with great ambiance. Staff was friendly, helpful and cheerful. Actually I am always surprised their prices are so reasonable, 4 adults with a few extra beverages ordered had the buffet for less than $30 each. I only wish my stomach was bigger!!!

The food and the service was excellent. The old-world charm of the restaurant is very appealing. The wait staff were very pleasant and gave attention to assisting with the description of various items, but did not intrude on our meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone without reservation.

This is definitely where the old WASPY ladies who lunch go. There is no money like old money and this place is a throw-back to when America was classy. Lovely interiors and exteriors, famous American location. Lovely chargers at each table. Nothing is tacky every square inch is well appointed. Its a must go to place.

We can always count on the Washington Crossing Inn for high quality food and service. The meal was top notch and the service was attentive without being too intrusive. The ambiance was cozy and elegant. On this chilly early spring evening, there were fires in every fireplace. It is a special place and we will continue to return.

We had a great experience at the Inn. We had gone for my Mom's Birthday and we had a great time. Our waitress was very attentive and plates were cleared on a consistent basis. We had chosen the Sunday Buffet for this visit. It was a fairly long walk to get our food but it didn't disappoint. We will definitely be back for Afternoon Tea!

My wife and I have eaten outside at the Washington Crossing Inn many times during the summer and have always enjoyed it. On a whim, we decided to try the inside while our daughter was home for her Spring break. The food was very good, as usual. The three of us shared the rock shrimp special appetizer and their signature salad. For dinner my daughter had the Filet Mignon, my wife had the Chicken Schnitzel, and I had the halibut. All were excellent, served hot, and the portions were good.

The restaurant itself was relatively "dead" that evening, so it was quiet and hard not to hear everyone else's conversations. This was not what we were expecting or looking for. Also, we found the interior to be a bit dated or stuffy. So, the ambiance was basically not to our liking.

However, if you are looking for a quiet, older, inn-type dining experience, then this is an excellent choice. And regardless of what you're looking for, the food and service are always very good. Personally however, we will stick to the outside on warm summer nights -- it's a lot more festive, and the food is still great.

Nice dining experience for a family of four (2 teens). A bit on the pricey side but the food was good. Beet salad and green salad were excellent, crab avocado special appetizer were under seasoned, two steak/mashed potato dinners were v. good. Cooked to right temp, potatoes were nicely seasoned, asparagus nicely roasted. My son enjoyed the salmon. The pepper sauce was under seasoned and didn't have enough bite. Desserts were quite good - lemon molten cake, chocolate dome... well liked by both kids. Waitress was very attentive as was busser.

I had made reservations for brunch on Sunday. When we arrived, there were plenty of tables available to sit at. We were seated right next to the kitchen, next to a table of 7 and every table in the room was full. It was very loud and we could not hear ourselves talk to each other. Our waitress offered coffee to every other table except for ours. I had to flag her down in order to get coffee, twice. Other tables dishes were cleared from their tables, but not ours. While I was seated in the doorway of the kitchen, my chair was kicked by the staff, 6 times. Very annoying. There was also a major draft that hit me while I was sitting there. I am disappointed because the food and ambience are very nice. The staff treated us like we were not even there and there were plenty of other tables we could have been sat at.

The hostess sat us at a nice and warm spot near the fireplace and clearly went over the menu along with the evening's specials. Meagan took our orders promptly and confirmed with the chef that a special cut of meat was available that night. The entrees came out immediately after the fresh salads and were perfectly prepared.
