Jenny was our server she was excellent as always
Outstanding food, top notch. Fantastic meal from apps, to entree, to dessert.
Dinner & service are always the best. Recommended to us several years ago & always a must when we visit Cape May.
Everything was great (food, service, ambiance) Surprised that serving staff were not wearing masks but maybe that is a NJ option at present. We were seated at a nice table and not too close to others and that worked out perfectly. What a nice way to start 2022!
Food was great and the staff was nice. They gave us a cute sorbet to celebrate our anniversary!
Amazing! We can’t wait to go back!
Food was great! Also the service was fantastic!!! We really enjoyed ourselves.
Beautiful, elegant fantastic restaurant with professional staff.
What a wonderful experience. Made our New Years Eve
I know that it New Years but lobster tail was billed as a Maine Tail but tasted like a previously frozen warm water tail. We were also billed for 2 bottles of wine yet only had one. No bread was ever offered. Lastly we had to ask for coffee after we received our check. We love the Washington Inn but this meal was a disappointment.
Hands down the best overall dining experience we ever had. Absolutely flawless!
Great food and an excellent wine selection matched by outstanding service.
The service was amazing! The food was so good. We dined for New Years Eve and they did a great job. Everyone was so nice!
Always a fantastic experience at the Washington Inn, great staff, incredible food
Delicious food. Wonderful meal. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.
We go to the inn every time we visit cape may this time was disappointing. Our servicer was very nice food was good as always however we were rushed as if we were in a dinner there was no down time between courses I except to take at least two hours to dine not this time I understand stand table turnover however for the price you spend and the type of place the inn is is it two much to ask for at least a relaxing meal
Everything was delicious from the cocktails to the apps (octopus and mushroom soup) to the entree (grouper and lamb) and the cheesecake for dessert. Service was outstanding. The valet parking helps as well! Over all a wonderful meal!
So glad to see Vegan options.
The appetizers were very good but then our entrees of crab cakes were the worst we've ever had! No crab meat in them, all filler, more like eating a potato knish! They were good in the summer but if they run out of crab meat take them off the menu!
Overall experience was awesome. I'll be back again.
Everything was wonderful, mushroom soup spectacular, served by multiple people, entire experience most pleasurable.
Food was incredible, the service exceptional and the ambiance was perfect! Great restaurant!
My wife and I are in cape may for a beautiful 10-yr anniversary celebration (1yr late bc of Covid). We love the Washington Inn and dine here when we visit Cape May annually. Food and ambiance is second to none! Always have a great server, although Jenny was lacking a bit last night. Wasn’t overly attentive with checking in. But loved the meal and our time together.
Always delicious and the service is impeccable! I always enjoy eating here and have yet to be disappointed.

Outstanding food, ambiance and service!!! Love this place!!!!
The Washington Inn is our favorite restaurant in Cape May. It is a high end establishment with gourmet cuisine and a fabulous wine list. The atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. The staff, from the wine connoisseur to the servers, valet guys, bartenders and anyone we’ve met are amazing and service is impeccable. The owner, if you are lucky to get him out for a moment, is wonderful. The food is beautifully plated and delicious. We have had many items on the menu and a variety of specials and have always had a consistent, well prepared meal that is delightful and exceeded our expectations. The first thing I do when I know we are visiting Cape May again, which is several times a year, is make a reservation to dine there. We’ve never just walked in and tried to get a seat at the bar because we wouldn’t want to chance not getting in but would do that if the occasion arose. The bar is cozy, quaint and fun. I can’t say enough great things about this gem. Good luck getting in!
Wonderful place. Great food drinks and decorations
A bit slow
