Just a fabulous restaurant with wonderful food and wine choices and a staff that are kind and professional.
The dinner was excellent and our waiter, Sean was super as well, very prompt and made several suggestions that were excellent. The restaurant even brought out a nice cake with a candle and wrote in choclate on the plate Happy Anniversay ! Very, very classy ! We really enjoy the food and the atmosphere. We cannot wait to go back. Thank you Sean!
Wonderful evening at the Washington Inn
We brought our friends who have a home in
Nantucket and they loved the Inn
Great night, as always
Overall a good experience. However the ambiance was odd due to the streaming background music choice of 60-70’s soft rock ( which we like ) but did not expect in this setting.
Excellent and pleasant service. A top quality restaurant.
Consistently excellent food and service.
The prefix menu is a great deal. Food was delicious.
We went to celebrate my son's 24th birthday. Our server was wonderful - attentive but not hovering. WI often does interesting cocktails with local beach plum fruit and mine was delicious. This lovely historic building has a contemporary attitude in its menu and I would highly recommend. Best bronzino (with crispy skin) I have had.
Service was superior. Dessert was excellent. The pork chop special was tops!
My wife and I celebrated our 44 th wedding anniversary, and had a great meal at the Washington Inn. I had the short ribs and my wife had filet mignon. Our meals were delicious. The service was spot on, and the ambience was warm and inviting.
the food was absolutely wonderful and our waiter was outstanding!!!
One of the best restuarants I have ever been to. Super impressed. Thank you Cape May Restaurant Week! Look forward to going again. Thank you for an awesome experience.
Food is always amazing, service is great, it is usually very busy and tables are close together but a great overall restaurant.
Loved your place. We had a wonderful time. The crab cakes were delicious even heated up the next day.
We enjoyed the seafood cioppino and crab cakes for our Restaurant Week entrees. Both were excellent. The cioppino provided plenty of fresh seafood in a very delicious and uniquely seasoned broth and the crab cakes were some of the best we've enjoyed. The service was perfect. We look forward to returning for another fantastic dining experience.
Food and service is always good! The bar menu is great too. Love the bananas foster and the cookies and cream cheesecake 😋 Actually I love all the desserts!
Service from waiter and bus boy was very poor. Boarderline disrespectful.
We enjoyed the restaurant week menu with its seasonal choices and the lovely atmosphere. The window boxes filled with mums and pumpkins made such a beautiful setting!
This restaurant never disappoints us, great food and the service is excellent!
This is one of our favorite dining locations in Cape May! There are lots of great restaurants in our town and we dine at most of them regularly.
This was the first time we experienced a menu during Restaurant Weekend. Everything about our evening was over the top. We ate a 3 course meal that was so delicious ! My husband had the Grilled Spanish Octopus and I had a Kale,Butternut Squash and Radicchio Salad for appetizers. Both were very tasty. Entrees ordered were Local Seafood Cioppino and Washington Inn Crab Cakes. They were both absolutely scrumptious and very well prepared. We had for dessert Triple Chocolate Cake and Cookies and Cream Cheesecake. They melted in your mouth and tasted heavenly.
We love our waitress, Sonata, who we request when dining here. She takes very good care of us to make sure everything is perfect for a wonderful evening.
We highly recommend dining here to celebrate any occasion if you are in Cape May. You will not be disappointed.
Very comfortable setting, staff friendly, food delicious.
The food as good but not as incredible as I have heard. The red wine braised short was delicious. The crab cakes were just regular crab cakes, nothing different. I had the octopus which was good but I have had more tender octopus for way less money. Service was attentive and they seated us quickly.
Never ever disappoints! From the wait staff, wine list, appetizers and dinner....you will never feel rushed!
The service was excellent and the food was better. Nothing rushed, personal attention, good insight into the dishes, well described, hardly spilled the very full martini. Just a terrific night. My wife was glad we went - ‘nuf said.
We dine at Washington Inn each time we visit Cape May. The menu has standard favorites plus wonderful seasonal dishes. The service is exceptional. It is great for special occasions.
The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. Our server sensed that my wife and I didn't want to rush through dinner. She asked about the pace of the meal and provided exactly what we wanted. When she told us about the specials, she included the price. I really appreciate this b/c so few restaurants do this anymore.
Awesome rolls and olive bread! Shrimp bisque was very good, as was branzino, Crabcakes were good but too much breading.
Excellent and always has been. One of my favs for decades.
Food was excellent a bit pricey for the portions. I dont mind spending a good buck for diner but hate when I leave a place looking for more food. Overall good food, good atmosphere.
My fiancé and I went to the Washington Inn for dinner the night we got engaged. We really enjoyed the ambiance, the bar, and the food selection, but our server was a bit inattentive. He was a very pleasant fellow, but seemed interested in chatting with other guests. Other than that, we had a good experience.
The Washington Inn never disappoints. Service is stellar and the food is always fantastic. I had the lobster tail with shrimp and risotto. It was expensive but delicious! My husband had the branzino and he thought it was excellent. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
We're from North Jersey, but whenever we are in Cape May -- at least once a year -- we make a pilgrimage to Washington Inn. The food is consistently excellent.
We were soooo disappointed with this last visit to Washington Inn. In the past it has been a favorite but it might be awhile until we come there again! The service was terrible! The waiter was rushing around, inattentive, and overly apologetic. When he saw out appetizers had not arrived at one point, he told us he yelled at someone about it - which made us feel uncomfortable. Our meal was cold, water was not filled, and we gave up on dessert because we sat there too long with the menus!
Holds true to its reputation. Made my celebration very special and a night to remember.
This was one of the worst dining experiences my wife and I have had. The service was awful, which was confusing as the restaurant was not very crowded. We were sat in a corner and basically forgot about. We spent at least 30 minutes with empty plates, no water and empty drinks during every course. The food was “ok” at best. We ordered the brussel sprouts and burrata salad as our appetizers and these were very tasty. The main course however was very weak. My wife and I both ordered steaks both of which came out medium well even though we both ordered medium rare. Beyond that they were not very good anyway. This meal was not cheap and we walked away hungry and unsatisfied. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Always good food and service. I make it to cape may a few times a year.
Fine dining atmosphere. Great food! Would definitely come here again.
Wonderful! Have a lovely time! Food was delicious! Waitress was great too,
In my opinion this was the finest restaurant in Cape May and one of the finest anywhere. They have too few hours for dining, and one of their signature dishes, lobster bisque, the best anywhere, is now off the menu. Very disappointing. The wait staff was great, particularly Natalie, but all were great. But for the price, especially being from NY, I can get (the remaining) food on their menu, just as good, at many places. Imo, the time for the inn has come and gone. A shame.
They are always wonderful but tonite was especially good! Great choices!
