This was a great experience for our first dinner out since the pandemic started. We had a wonderful table for 2 in the back. The food was delicious, the staff very attentive and masks were worn appropriately. Couldn’t ask for anything more for our 1st dinner out in a while.

I had a great time. My friends and I choose Washington Prime as a last minute place to celebrate my birthday. We were there for a short amount of time and yet I couldn’t have been more happy with the choice. The staff was great, they even sang happy birthday to me along with my friends. Thanks for an amazing time

I held a small business dinner on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was quiet, complied with the Covid-19 restrictions, and the service was great. The food, especially the steak, was absolutely incredible. Would love to come back again, and I will definitely be considering Washington Prime for future business events as well.

We had some friends meet us from the New Haven area! We introduced them to Washington Prime as a intro to the food scene in South Norwalk! We all left very impressed with the food and atmosphere. My husband and I frequent Washington Prime and we’ve yet to have anything off the menu that was delightful! We also love the service and attention to detail every staff member provides. Great over all experience if your looking for a nice evening or meal out.

Washington Prime is a great place to eat brunch or dinner for any occasion. Very welcoming manager and staff. Food is really good. Very efficient and friendly service.
We had a booth for 4 which was extremely covid conscious, more than 6ft from any other patrons. Nice atmosphere. Right across the street from the water and the Maritime Aquarium.

I can't say enough about how terrific Washington Prime is-- the food is exquisite, only to be topped by the very attentive service we received from our great waiter. The Manager was also very attentive and gracious. My sons had the signatures steaks which they raved about and I had amazing Ahi Tuna. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I always love the regular menu. Now the fall menu gives us even more options! But I have to say the lemon sole- this weekend’s special - was the bomb! Once again the chef rocket the specials! Plus I feel so comfortable the way everyone who works there takes all the necessary precautions with regard to Covid. That are also watchful of customers who may forget to follow the rules!

We were here for a 70th birthday dinner. They were following all COVID protocols well. We were seated for our reservation right away. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We all ordered different types of steak. The steaks were all delicious and each cooked perfectly. Will be returning for sure!

Great time celebrating a family birthday. Since we were a larger group in these covid days, we were seated in the wine room with another larger group. We all felt very comfortable there. Service was attentive and the food was delicious. We ordered several apps which were all so tasty and beautifully presented. As for our main meals everyone ordered steaks which were all cooked perfectly and deliciously seasoned. This included 2 orders or the porterhouse for 2 which cut like butter and were so flavorful. We had such a great evening and highly recommend Washington Prime for delicious food, pleasant ambiance and a fun night out in SoNo.
