Celebrating the holidays
The service was beyond compare. The menu and quality of food was excellent. We highly recommend dining here when in Cape May
We love to go to your restaurant. It is difficult sometimes to get a reservation and great when we do. We love your staff.
Good more incredible and creative then ever.. desserts amazing and presentation is , well, let’s say it speaks for itself.. makes the dish look quite appealing and anxious to eat…
Can’t go wrong here. Food, service and wine selection are the best. Kudos Washington Inn!
2nd time here, never disappoints! For us it’s a special occasion place not for kids. Food and cocktails and wine excellent. Service exceptional, attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend.
This is my go to restaurant for anything special. My husband and I frequent this place at least 3x a month .Unfortunately, this time was a bit of a let down.
For the price, our food just wasn’t on point like recent visits. I had hyped up everyone and felt disappointed as we left. Server was great !
We are never disappointed coming to the Washington Inn. The food is delicious and the wait staff are awesome and friendly. Definitely worth the extra money especially for special occasions. We had the filet and swordfish. Cooked to perfection.
It was fabulous!
Everything about the Washington Inn was excellent. Delicious food, with plenty of choices. And great service.
The food was excellent and the drinks were delicious. We were in what appeared to be an old porch which could have been a little better decorated.
Beautiful location. Lovely rooms. Great service. We have gone here for years. They used to have a wonderful little bread basket with different types of delicious small breads, served gratis when you ordered . They now have a "focaccia" bread basket on the appetizer menu for $5 that is similar to what I would call texas toast, served with a bowl of oil, and no gratis (or even orderable) other bread basket at all. Disappointing. We used to love the olive bread in the old basket. Otherwise the food was good - I had lamb shank special - huge and delish. My husband had short ribs over pasta - he enjoyed it. Overall a 4/5 for me because of the anticipated bread and the disappointment that it no longer is a thing there.
Excellent service, food & drinks
Our first time here. Amazing staff !! The crab cake was light and delicious, highly recommend ordering !! We also had the pork chop, the beef short rib and the filet. We were well attended to. I would definitely go back again !!
Beautifully decorated for the holidays! Food .. so delicious! Crab cakes amazing!
Great spot in Cape May! Cost ambiance, quick, friendly service and amazing food! Would recommend the cioppino and huge crab cakes! Also their wine list is huge and 20% off on thursdays. Highly recommend.
Food was delicious! Our waiter. Daniel was attentive! My pet peeve was paying $5.00 for 4 slicess of bread!!
Great food and service . No better Cape May ambiance. Only negative is that unlike most Cape May restaurants, it is not BYOB. Final bill ends up much higher then the competition as a result.
First time back to the Washington Inn in awhile. Everything was excellent…food, service,etc. despite being busy. They are consistently good.
Our favorite place, we love the staff and food.
Birthday celebration. Excellent service by Shaina. Delicious food. Pork chops tender, mushroom soup tasty, salad dressing excellent, lamb and cavatelli app was excellent. Dessert perfect.
Great meal, excellent service, lovely atmosphere!
The food was delicious, the restaurant is beautiful and the staff was very friendly.
Everything was so delicious! Casey our server was excellent! Bartender was spot on with my mint and lemon vodka martini 🤩 will definitely be back!
Best restaurant in Cape May, in my honest opinion. Never had a bad meal and the specials are always 🔥.
Amazing food and service as always! Love Washington Inn! ❤️
Robin and Rachel are amazing at their jobs: friendly, helpful, informative, and generally great at their jobs. Great service, great lamb dishes and wines. great evening!
Exquisite food and service in a warm holiday atmosphere. We'd gotten a gift cert for the restaurant (one of seemingly few open in Cape May in off season). It was packed on a Friday night. I can't say enough about the service - each server we encountered was genuine, polite, concerned about our having a good experience and we interacted with about 5-6 people during our dinner.
Smallish menu but each item we had was fabulous starting with the burrata appetizer. I nearly licked the plate. My partner had the lamb special; I had the swordfish special which was topped with a bit of lobster salad. The swordfish was perfectly cooked - flavorful on the outside and oh so moist on the inside. We rounded out the evening with bananas foster and a pineapple tart - both were wonderful. We both had one of the specialty drinks - I'm not much of a drinker but drank all of my pear martini - yum.
I would add that portions are perfectly sized - not overbearing so I took food home but just enough to satiate me.
Highly recommend for special dinners.
Great experience! Wonderful staff and food.
Our server Cassie was wonderful…. The food was amazing,especially the Bronzino,which she recommended.. consensus’s at the table was best meal in a long time. Thank you for your hospitality!

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.
