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

A terrific non-Italian restaurant in Little Italy. Excellent by-the-glass wine list. Unusual menu options. Very fresh ingredients. Save room for dessert. The open kitchen is really fun. Complimentary valet parking. Make reservations on the weekend.

I saw this featured on Unique Eats so we had to try it. Hubs is the finicky skeptic and I'm the open-minded foodie. We both loved this place. Complimentary valet parking. I have a beef with restaurants that lack parking and charge a fortune for the valet (and the meal). Washington Place does this right. The valets were friendly and... More

What a joy to eat at this restaurant. Free valet parking. Great atmosphere. Great service. I liked this restaurant because it was cozy, intimate, and devoid of loud noises. We chose to eat inside but had a great view of the patio area. The server was friendly and attentive to our needs and made some good recommendations. I had the... More

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.
