I had the Delaware bay oysters ... flavorless. My husbands NY strip was cold and rare he ordered medium rare. His sides were three halves of fingerling potatoes that were called duck fat fingerlings and broccoli rabe and some red peppers on top. The meal was cold disjointed and poorly executed for 46.00
I had the branzino which was hot and prepared well however my sides were cold as well. A half of a plum tomato and small amount of potatoes.
The waiter was very apologetic for our wait which really didn’t bother us but we did appreciate his concern.
30th Anniversary. Thank you it was a wonderful evening.
During my annual sister’s weekend in Cape May to enjoy the kick off to the Christmas season we decided this year to try Washington Inn for dinner. It was as a choice well worth the price Godfrey, our waiter, took such good care of us. When we could not decide on a bottle of wine he sent the sommelier over and she picked out the perfect bottle within our price range. The food was delicious, atmosphere perfect to put you in the Christmas 🎄 spirit! Highly recommend.
Lovely dinner with excellent fresh fish well prepared
A trip to Cape May is not complete without dinner at the Inn! If asked to tell you my favorite part about dining here, I don't know if I would chose the food, the wine, the atmosphere, the service or the history of the restaurant (okay.. it would be the food! Thank you Chef Adam!) The menu offers a wonderful selection of old favorites and innovative specials. Their wine selection is extensive, but don't be intimidated! Their wait staff are incredibly knowledgable and more than happy to offer their recommendations. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Our favorite restaurant in Cape May!!
The food is always wonderful and all the rooms are lovely.
What a wonderful night! Great service from entire staff. And to cap it off - we ordered dessert to share. I forgot that I even mentioned on the Open Table reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. The Inn picked up on this note on the reservation and brought our dessert with candle and "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around the outside of the plate. This really made a very nice impression on us and on the surrounding tables as it was a total surprise. Thank you for standing out for excellent service along with an excellent seafood dinner.
Up the expected standards
Lovely meal. High standards in service and quality.
Setting the standard for white linen dining in Cape May, the Inn never disappoints as all culinary elements converge into one amazingly memorable dining experience. This is our ‘go to’ place for special occasions as it is truly a special restaurant that never misses a beat in delivering impressive service, ambiance, and cuisine.
The vegan entrée was absolutely delicious as were the sides of mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and brussels sprouts.
Celebrated Thanksgiving Giving at the inn. It was perfect ! Delicious food and attentive service!
Enjoy in Washington Inn. Likely the best restaurant in CM. Bravo!
team service at it's best... we had a lovely night, they even wrote happy anniversary on our dessert plate.
the food was delicious and we had a great experience, the noise level is a little high in the garden seating area
Exquisite off season dinner.
Just fabulous. If you want a high class dining experience. The Washington in is the place.
They are always top notch.
Haven’t been to the Washington Inn for a few years as we moved from the area. My steak was excellent but my sides were strange. The bitter broccoli rabe did nothing to enhance the steak nor did the mound of jar red peppers. I don’t mind trying different things but a nice baked potato choice or decent vege would have taken this steak dinner over the top for me. I did get the arugula salad as an appetizer, some wilting and under dressed unfortunately.
Will try again but will ask for substitutes.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Washington Inn. The staff welcomed us and many wished us a happy anniversary. Our server was Godfrey. He was very pleasant and accommodating. Our meal was excellent. This was our first time and we will definitely return.
amazing environment, unbelievable food, can't wait to get back there!
Not as good as expected.
I’ve never been disappointed here. Of course, I prefer BYOB, however the wine choices were good. Service....EXCELLENT!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Cape May! Such an outstanding wine menu and amazing food! Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cape May!
Excellent food, pleasant servers, great service, good wine selection.
We enjoy arriving early and sitting in bar area. Plenty of waiters to help get drinks and apps. Relax a bit then seat on reservation time. Great menu because different types of foods and all delicious. Helpful wait staff. Always enjoy our time there.
Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Our meal was very good. I had the crab cakes my husband had the Short Rib. Both dishes were excellent. The atmosphere was very pleasant. A little noisy. But the nicest part was our exceptional server Margo. He was incredible.
We were very well treated as we had asked for a nice table to celebrate our 52nd anniversary. They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on our dessert plate.
We had a wonderful meal at the Washington Inn for our 1 year anniversary. The food, the service, and the ambiance were all fantastic. Thank you for a special night!
The service was outstanding, the food delicious, the portions were generous, and the ambiance intimate. Great dinner! We will definitely dine there again.
Went for my parents 50th wedding anniversary! Outstanding service and dinner!! Kal, our server was just amazing , we have not had service like that in a long time. Can’t wait to go back!! Thank you for a very great evening!
The Restaurant Week Menu had great value an selection.
My husband and I have been coming here for 30 years and have always had an amazing experience.
We Were a group of five and dined during the fall restaurant week menu and everything was excellent from beginning to end. Our Server Mel was great with answering any questions that our group had. The food is Top notch from first course through my chocolate dessert and coffee ice cream, oh so good
Gabby our waitress was professional and personable!! Food was amazing....
Service and food was excellent
We celebrated our anniversary, which fell during restaurant week. We had a wonderful dinner, wine, and impeccable service by Gabriella. She mentioned our anniversary when we arrived, and the dessert was served on a plate that had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate around the edge. Nice touch!
We used the resraraunt weekend as our first time to the Washington Inn. We will definitely be back. Food was well prepared and plated nocely, tasty and more than filling. Crab cakes were exceptional, light, and seasoned well.
We will be back. Food was very good. service excellent. the hostess was amazing, handling athe crowd in a professional and organized manner and it was crazy busy
Went for a birthday dinner showed up 10 mins early for reservation and had to wait about 20 mins to be seated. Bar was super loud and crowded. Dinner took over 2 hours. Service was really not good for such an expensive restaurant. Our empty dinner plates sat in front of us for 15 mins. Took forever to get water refilled etc. And main course took a really long time. Food was excellent they just need to work on service.
