My favorite restaurant especially for my birthday celebration. Prices are quite high. Wish they would run specials or 2 fers. Glad they are open for business!

We had to wait two months for a restaurant meal and Washington Prime did not disappoint. Excellent steak! Outside dining was fine just needed a heat lamp or two! Service was excellent as usual.

First time out for Phase 1 of CT restaurants reopening. Everything was perfect. Quick temperatures at the door, QR Scan Code that pops menu up on your phone for touchless ordering. Everything sanitized. Perfect reopening.

Filet was very good, cooked perfectly. Oscar style was very good, so were the Brussel sprouts. Mac and cheese wasn’t as good as the rest. It’s a fairly expensive steakhouse so the expectations are high. I’d definitely come back, specifically for the steak.

Fell in Love Again.
We scheduled an impromptu dinner and were blown away by both the impeccable, attentive service and the flawless food execution. And the bartender nailed our special-order cocktails.
Details:
Masa oysters were crisp and juicy, nestled in a tasty remoulade.
Tony’s oysters were roasted to tender perfection.
Burrata and beet salad was fresh, and the burger came exactly as ordered.
We will definitely be back.

After finding a crab - yes, a crab - in one of my oysters, I kindly sent them back and asked for the check. I was told “This happens all the time!” by the manager and that “They’re fresh! This happens sometimes, but they’re fresh!” Although Washington Prime was unable to pay close enough attention while shucking their oysters to begin with to ensure their customers don’t accidentally ingest a crab, they WERE able to pay close enough attention to count how many oysters we ate that night - 17 out of the 24 total we ordered - and proceed to charge us for those 17 on our check. And to not even take off the $7 beer we also ordered.
If their poor customer service and cheapness is any indication, I’d say Wash Prime isn’t doing so well - maybe because they serve oysters with crabs in them “all the time”? - and shouldn’t be your next choice for a night out.

I am big fan of WP, love their regular menu, and their happy hour is a great deal. Good variety of choices for food and drinks in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Service is always good with friendly and helpful servers. Nice greeting by the hosts and managers. Place is a joy and glad it's stuck around.

Came here for a business meal for the first time on recommendation from the hotel. Nice decor, excellent service, great music. Halibut special I had was delicious, my guests all had steak and couldn't have been happier. Solid Manhattan and wine list selection. Will definitely return when I'm back in town.

Everyone enjoyed their meals. The beef Wellington was very good and lived up to its billing. Other entrees enjoyed were the lamb chops, pasta and the meatloaf. Food was tasty and prepared well. The service was good and our waiter was very attentive. Although the restaurant was full, it wasn’t as loud as I expected. Washington Prime is a great choice for steak fans. It is a little pricy so more Appropriate for special occasions than an ordinary evening out.

Host was great, very attentive, showed us to the bar where are friends were having a drink before we were seated. Although the bar menu for mixed drinks looked very good, we decided not to order a cocktail as my sister who had arrived before us ordered a cocktail and she was not happy with it at all. Sent it back once but it wasn’t any better the second time. So we ordered glasses of wine and were told by the bartender that the choice for white was a CA Hess or a New Zealand, very limited but we ordered two glasses of the CA white. When we were seated it turns out that the selection of wine by the glass was much more extensive, which was annoying to discover after the fact. This is an upscale busy restaurant but the bar service was definitely disappointing. They should work on improving that part of the restaurant. The booth we were seated was wonderful and the service was excellent. We ordered a combination of fish, beef and lamb, all selections were excellent as well as the deviled eggs, calamari and wedge salad. We split an ice cream cookie for dessert, very yummy. We will return but hope the bar improves.

This was my second time going to Washington Prime - my first experience was great - this Saturday night, however, was a different story - our reservations were for 6:30pm and it looked like everyone was seated at the same time. My girlfriends and I were seated in the middle of the room with waiters and bus people flying about with a party of 12 people right next to us - too cramped. Also, we literally had to wait 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order - I had to flag down the bus person to find our waiter. Not good, especially when patrons are paying the prices that Washington Prime charges. Everything was fine until dessert, when we ordered the creme brulee and the flourless chocolate cake - the creme brulee came, but not the cake which was delivered about 20 minutes later and we returned it. I don't know if the restaurant was just short-staffed that night or what the story was, but I'm not sure I would highly recommend it to anyone at this point. The food was fantastic but the service was terrible.

If you don’t mind spending big bucks for a high quality steak go to Washington Prime. Every thing from apps, bottle of wine, steaks, to dessert was top notch. We will be back for the next special occasion!!

We have eaten here a few times. The steaks were excellent which confirms why they have received a number of awards. The artichoke appetizer is incredible. Their sides are huge and are great to share including the baked potato. Their desserts were also excellent. We all shared the desserts so we had a great tasting. It is a bit noisy if you are sitting close to the bar so you may want to request a booth or a quieter area if the noise bothers you.

Good food. Good service but wish that the bartender is a little flexible; He couldn't give me a better martini. I wanted a sweet martini vs just plain.
