I do appreciate the investment in the so-called outdoor, but really enclosed, dinning area. And the food and drinks were good.
Our concerns were that not one service person was wearing a mask and many did not speak English. My questions; are they properly documented if they are not citizens, how do we as customers know they are vaccinated as no one wore masks, and where is any manager walking around to engage with the customers.
As always, food was fantastic. Drinks were amazing. Love the outdoor tent setup, it is beautiful!
1st time to the restaurant. Nice ambience, excellent service and food.
Had a wonderful time at Washington House, Service was great with our waiter being very attentive . Food was excellent and there were no surprises. Tuesday bottles of wine are 50% off so that was an added bonus.
Seated promptly. Wait staff was very apologetic about wait times for food...even though we didn't complain (we are well aware the industry is short staffed), nor did we think the wait times were long. Live music was great and tables were spaced wonderfully. Oysters were fresh and at $1 each (on Wednesdays and Thursdays) you can't beat it! Beers and wine we chose were great. Apps and entrées were good, but not mind blowing. Overall, good experience and we would return.
Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service and an eclectic menu that never disappoints.
Great food, ambiance was amazing outside ! Live band towards the later part of the evening!
Great place for dinner...gets a bit hot in the tent depending on the temperature that night.
Overall, we had a great night! We loved the outdoor tent and the live music. Service was excellent and the sangria was yummy. Only the food was average and very oversalted. Nevertheless, we had a lovely anniversary dinner and would return with friends.
Covid is over but Washington House still won't let us eat inside. Sitting in the tent on a 90 degree night was miserable. I won't be back until they open the main building and turn on the ac! Food and service were great but sweating over the food is disgusting
Delicious lunch. 👏
Everything was great except the flies that kept bothering us. Maybe they should invest in some type of pest control.
Very nice evening. Food was delicious and service impeccable.
Attentive staff and the tent was very comfortable even with the downpour and warmer temperature. A very pleasant casual dinner.
Enjoyed Everything! Food & Service was wonderful!
The "outside room" at the Washington House is fantastic. However, we were there in the middle of a very violent rainstorm last night and spent part of the meal trying to stay dry. Still, the outdoor room is lovely and accommodates a multitude of groups with picnic tables & benches, tables and chairs, and hightops. Attentive staff and delicious food. We will return!
We are a little disappointed in our experience last night. We usually love going to Washington House but this time the service was poor and the food was off. Not sure if it’s because they were busy and understaffed but it was a bit disappointing. We came to celebrate my moms birthday and wanted to bring her here for awhile so we made reservations over a month ago for a large party. We never received some of the items we asked for like refills on drinks and avocado fries that were still on our bill come the end of the meal. The risotto that we normally love was sooooooo over salted and that is comming from someone who loves salt lol. We requested for three desserts and a candle and the candle/spoons never came. As we waited for the spoons the ice cream melted everywhere and my mom who’s birthday it was had to sit and wait for both the spoons and the candle. Overall the experience was pretty bad especially since we brought family to see a place they have never been.
Hope that this was a one off as we typically do love this restaurant.
Ambience was lively and fun with live music. Service was excellent - our server was friendly and helpful, food was served in just the right amount of time. Cocktails were delicious and the food was exceptional. We had a great time!
Beautiful outdoor tent and excellent service/food. We enjoy dining at Washington House Restaurant.
Chicken was rather … rubbery. Service was awesome!! Time to really rethink the menu.
Great food and service. A little hot in the tent but i think they did the best they could on such a hot day.
My wife enjoyed her crab cakes. My niece enjoyed her haddock. I liked my filet mignon, however the filet was overdone and tough. We will return. Enjoyed our visit. Appreciated the smaller menu. It shows what the kitchen does it does well.
We took our kids here for a graduation dinner and were very please. We had never been before. The food was excellent and the servers delightful. We were out on the patio so the noise level was low. Cannot speak for the main dining room.
I loved Washington House even before the pandemic, and the outdoor space they have built in response to COVID has just deepened my affections. There is such a great vibe to now accompany the outstanding food and delicious cocktails. The wait staff is at their best in this new setting. Any occasion--dinner with an old friend, 65th birthday, confirmation dinner-- is appropriate for you to book here.
We love the food and ambiance of Washington House! Best tuna around and great fries!!! Delicious drinks as well and great live music!
Outside dining had great ambience. Waiter was friendly & food was delicious. My cocktail was superb. Will definitely come back again!
1. Restaurant failed to advise seating was an “outside” structure with “fans” and tent covering… absurd!
2. “Ambiance” was terrible.
3. We were seated in a cafeteria type setting which was overrun with ants…literally.
4. NO ONE came to table to greet us, provide menus or take drink order.
Outstanding evening. Besides the great Grilled Apple salad and the Crab Cake entree, the peach sangria and Mango cheesecake were great bookends to the meal.
We had a lovely time and a very good meal. We ate outside in the tented area which was lovely. Our waiter however was disinterested and his service was perfunctory. After we were served, he only checked back when we were done to see if we wanted dessert.
We had an excellent experience
Outdoor area is beautiful. We had such a lovely time. Strongly recommend!
Great food and ambiance.
The new open air building is a nicer setup than others. I was turned off though by the toilet trailer. I didn't use it so I can't speak to it's condition. We liked the apps a bit better than the entrees, which where not cheap. But I would go back to try the burger and check out the live music.
Found the tent restaurant very noisy. Hard to have a conversation. Food quality was average-nothing exciting
The food was outstanding! We brought friends for the first time and when we left they mentioned to us that they want to return. Loved the atmosphere, music and flavor of the meals. Can't wait till we can bring them inside to see the bar and the other dining area we are so fond of.
Awesome! Thanks so much.
Good food, good service. Excellent hostess. Great ambience!
I usually sit on the front patio at the Washington House but today we sat in the large temp building in the back. The building is very well designed with lots of open 'windows' and ceiling fans. I had The Martha (like a Cobb salad) and a salmon tartare with avocados and they were both very good. My friend had a salad and the fish tacos. She enjoyed them. Would definitely recommend this place and we'll be back.
Lovely to hear!
Great ambience. Cocktails were great. Ordered a variety of appetizers and entrees to share, everything was delicious.
Food was fantastic...crab cakes and fish and chips. Fresh and hot! The outdoor seating was protected but open. Lots of space between tables. We had a great night out.
Amazing as always. They renovated the seating area outside. Excellent entertainment
