Great food and service!
Absolutely wonderful dinner.
What an awesome place went to capemay for weekend and was told to go to the inn , and was not disappointed , what a very romantic and cool house restaurant. It was my anniversary of three years where’s my wife I have no complaints everything was great. Even our very cool European Romanian waitress, very professional and had a great sense of humor.Gabriella thank you so much for giving us a great anniversary dinner. Food was spectacular the desserts were unlike anything I’ve ever eaten. And the prices were very reasonable.
Food was good but our waitress was rude. Still we like the restaurant.
Got there early, had a drink and App at the bar. Got call for our reservation and our coats had been taken earlier. Dinner was excellent and our waiter , Miles was as well. Enjoyable evening.
Our server was friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and a great advocate for the Inn. A professional.
Always enjoy our time at Washington Inn! Great service and outstanding food!
Outstanding dinner, I had the tomahawk pork chop and it was one of the best I’ve had. Service exceptional!
The Washington Inn never disappoints. From the great bar for pre-dinner cocktails to the warm and beautiful dining rooms, to (of course) the wonderful food, it's hard to find a better dining experience. Short ribs over potato gnocchi were rich and savory and the 6 hour braised lamb shank special was sooo flavorful and perfect for a cold fall evening. Thanks again, gang. Hope to see you again, soon.
Great food, lovely ambience, and the service was amazing given that many places have slow service due to staffing shortages these days. Meals aren't cheap, but well worth the price for a special occasion meal!
Mediterranean branzino with roasted fennel& fingerling potatoes
chocolate mousse tower
The gnocchi was like a gummy bear, Short rib was great.
An amazing meal! I've been coming to Cape May for 20+ years and this dinner was by far one of the top standouts over that time period. It was a busy Saturday Night in November, and we arrived a bit early for our reservation, so we grabbed a drink at the bar to wait. The hostess found us right around our actual reservation time, and seated us as a great table in a side room.
We started with the burrata appetizer which was perfectly portioned for two to share, before moving on to the main course. I had the beef short ribs and it was easily the star of the show. Flavorful and tender, it melted in the mouth and paired perfectly with the fluffy gnocchi. My girlfriend had the crab cakes which featured a unique but delicious breading, with a delicious apple slaw on the side. To finish the evening, we split the chocolate mousse cake, which was light yet decadent. I also indulged in a Washington Inn coffee (Jamaican + Irish), and I highly recommend it!
Overall, the service and ambiance were fabulous, which made for a well-rounded fall evening out in Cape May. Well done, Washington Inn!
Great restaurant, amazing food and ambience, the owner is excellent and extremely knowledgeable in wine selections
We have going here for many years, and loves it. But, they were off this Sat. night that we attended. The server did ck. back after our dinner arrived, but a little too soon. No one in our party had started to eat. There was only 1 problem with one entree. The NY on special was raw, or, what is considered Blue. He had ordered medium rare. The other issue was, we were served NO bread. We assumed that they forgot, so we inquired to another server. He said that because a lot of people are gluten intolerant, they only serve bread if you ask for it, AND, that you/we would be charged $5! I can't believe that the Washington Inn, which we LOVED, would skimp like that, to say the least. I don't think that we will be back. There are other very well established, fine dining venues that would accommodate us in the manner that has always been their standard, and ours.
We are sorry that it has come to this.
Great place for anniversary dinner
Brought first time visitors to Cape May to Washington Inn. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food and outstanding service.
I’ve been to Peter Shields and it was good but this was better and I can’t wait to return- food presentation was awesome/ what I expect from cape May
Food and service were amazing. Kit was our server and she was fun and helpful. All of her recommendations were on point.
Kit was great and informative. Washington In. Is our fav restaurant in Cape May. Worth the wait for reservations. Anytime of year, awesome!!
The ambience is very nice for a special evening. We were celebrating seeing friends we had not seen for two years. The wait staff was very attentive and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. The food was delicious.
My seafood risotto a normal menu item was not very fresh , very "fishy" smell and a very bad tasting clam and a lot of small shells in the broth. Wife's steak special was a little expensive at almost $60.
The restaurant was very nice and the service was very good
Fine dining within the Inn. Our entrées of Short Rib/potato gnocchi and Porkchop/roasted potato were delicious. Good pairings. Bread was $5 extra. Overall, a solid restaurant turning out tasty dishes. Lovely setting.
Great. Room was too hot.
This dinner was fabulous! The setting and food were just perfect!
We have been eating here for years. Last night’s dinner one of best. I had branzino and my husband crab cakes. Finished with Bananas Foster.
Waitress Yenny was lovely.
Daniel was excellent. He overheard my husband and I wish each other a happy anniversary-low and behold at the end of dinner we had a "Happy Anniversary" surprise dessert. A very nice touch-we appreciated it.
Great restaurant. Good food and drinks. The service was also terrific
Excellent food and service! Stacey was lovely and very attentive. She took care to explain things and help us with our selections, due to food allergies. We hope to come back soon.
Amazing as always! Loved our server, loved our food. The steak was incredible, mushroom soup was awesome, loved everything about our experience :)
Celebrating a retirement
Very nice experience. The waitress (Stacy) was excellent. The food was tasty and a nice presentation. Would highly recommend the Washington Inn for special occasions, the prices were a little high.
Our experience was amazing all due to the best server Stacey she was so great and awesome with our kiddos highly recommend
We love the Washington Inn! We have been dining here for 17 years and will continue to return year after year. Always, an overall 5-Star experience.
I had a open table reservation and the hostess marked me as a no show!!
Came back again after dining here the week prior. Menu was pared down as we head into off season. We were not offered the chefs tasting mini app even though everyone around us was offered it. Entrees were great as were desserts. Alot of dining rooms to cater to many people's tastes. Valet parking a plus.
Kit was our service and she was wonderful. Thank you for another great meal!
Everything was perfect! Exceptional meal and venue!
