We had a group of friends get together at Washington Place for a Saturday night dinner. Service was very good (one of the couples at our table knew the waitress, which certainly helped). I had the steak frites. Although cooked to the correct temperature, the meat was somewhat chewy. Fries were very good. Another person at our table had a... More

Our last minute decision to dine here on a rainy Saturday night was rewarded with a delicious meal and flawless service. The free valet parking and being offered several different options when choosing our table was a welcoming touch. Our server Lisa was attentive and very helpful. We shared the small plate of Shrimp and Grits as an appetizer and... More

We'd had 2 wonderful dinners in Cleveland and really didn't think we'd top them. But Trip Advisor reviews told me about an amazing deal at Washington Place that we couldn't resist since we were dining on a Wednesday night - an app, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for $40. So we walked over from our hotel. The garden... More

My favorite restaurant in Cleveland. The menu has lots to choose from and the wait staff are friendly and accommodating. They eliminate the question of how you want a burger or steak by showing you a color chart. Their patio is bucolic and romantic.

On Wednesdays, Washington Place offers a special where you get an appetizer, two entrees, and a bottle of wine for $40. That's a great deal any way you slice it. Food was excellent, but the portions were pretty small. The quality of wines they offer as part of their special was good. They were also offering a special $2 brownie/ice... More

The calamari was incredible. Tender, lightly breaded, enough for two. The pasta of the day was also flavorful but light, not over done, fresh vegetables. The staff were very courteous and attentive. Be sure to try the lemon olive oil cake.

The restaurant is really beautiful. Four of us had reservations for dinner. We were seated on the back porch with windows all around, and I really liked the table. The bar area is in the front of the restaurant where you come in, and that was very nice and modern. We were seated almost immediately. The wait staff was very... More

I was caught by surprise at this restaurant. I arrived in snowy Cleveland on a late Sunday afternoon for a business event the following day. Thankfully, I asked the hotel front desk for a good place close to our location, and she recommended Washington Place Bistro. I sat in the bar area, that was nicely done with good views of... More

My husband and I and three other couples made reservations here for New Year's Eve. The service was excellent, we had a nice round table, which we all enjoyed. Everyone was very courteous, helpful and friendly. We liked the atmosphere - very hip and cool, not what I would expect the normal to be in Little Italy. As far as... More
