Washington Place is an upscale restaurant for the inn that is also located in the building. The restaurant is on the small side, but it was not hard to get a table on Saturday in the enclosed porch at the back of the restaurant. There are a bunch of interesting craft cocktails on the menu. They are tasty and quite... More

This is a good, consistent dining experience. They have the best hamburgers, but we have also had other menu items and we were not disappointed. However, we have to say that the servers are probably the most professional and best trained that we have ever come across. And, not just in Cleveland but in most of our travels I don't... More

This is our second time within the last six months to eat at this restaurant. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, again. We started with the mussels appetizer, plenty of mussels served in a delicious white wine broth (a meal in itself, we shared the dish). Next, we both ordered their beet salad served with baby greens in... More

We came here for Sunday Brunch because of the decent review on Trip Advisor. The food was almost laughably bad. I was shocked when my chicken and waffles was placed in front of me. Just a plain ole rubbery waffle with what looked like 3 little turds on top. It was 3 little chicken nuggets on top tasted/looked burned bc... More

A really neat little place in Little Italy area. Modern decor. The restaurant is inside a big house that also has an inn. Sunday brunch was very good. A nice selection of entrees. The pierogis were excellent.

My husband and I visited Washington Place last night to celebrate our 30th anniversary. I didn't notify anyone of our "special day". From the time we entered the restaurant to walking out the door, we were very well taken care of by the staff. Our waiter was solicitous, but didn't hover over us. The food was delicious. Very we'll prepared,... More

The service was very good and the location is perfect. The food was very good but not a 5 star but I would suggest this restaurant to anyone who wants a romantic setting with very good food.

Always excellent food when we dine here. There is parking available at the restaurant, which is a huge convenience in the Little Italy district). You can choose valet parking if you desire. The bar is fully stocked, and there are choices for seating (fully enclosed & insulated patio with large windows or one of the interior rooms). The meals were... More

We were very disappointed with the brunch. We decided to have a brunch there after visiting institutions in University Circle. We found the food to be poor to average. I had the eggs benedict. It was the poorest rendition of eggs benedict I can remember. The muffin had burnt edges, the ham was tasteless and fatty, and the tasteless cheddar... More
