We enjoyed our whole experience. The staff is amazingly friendly and accommodating. Expert service. Expertly prepared meals. We enjoyed afternoon tea, the 9 course dinner, overnight stay and breakfast the next morning as part of an offered package. Ask for a tour of the kitchen...stunning. Listen for the Gregorian chants playing.

Now I know what all the fuss was about. Bring your appetite and a large credit limit, but well worth it!

The Inn is absolutely beautiful. The service impeccable. The staff amazing. Having been here 3 times before (all 15 to 20 years ago), I didn't find the food as amazing as my other visits. I would have given it 2 Michelin stars in the past. First, I am not fond of set menus (but they would let you swap out... More

Absolutely over the top FABULOUS -- 9 pm seating perfect actually! The menu is a culinary tour that is tremendous - you will not be disappointed! Worth the trip - and the price - stay at the Foster Harris house right down the street so you can enjoy the entire night, feel completely spoiled, but not break the bank!

Thank you for choosing to be with us on your birthday. We appreciate your kind comments. Of course we would rather have you stay with us for the night and you would find that our room rates are quite modest on days of the week when we are less busy. In addition to welcome cocktails, afternoon tea and breakfast, we... More

An outstanding experience! “Experience” is the right word to describe a meal at the Inn at Little Washington, from beginning to end. Even though we self-parked we were greeted by the Valet and escorted inside. The maître d’ met us in the lobby, oriented us on the facility, offered us a choice of tables, and escorted us to our seats.... More

Patrick O'Connell has impeccable standards for food and service, which shines through in all of the dishes. I had the classics menu and my husband had the Autumn menu, both of which were equal parts creative and delicious. I forgot to tell the waiter about my dislike of cucumbers, but honestly, it didn't matter because the flavor combinations were so... More

I had the privilege of dining here on a business dinner and this restaurant is truly special.

Hard to get better than this. Full stop. From the moment you pull up, the service, the food, the creativity, the presentation, the warmth of Inn and the staff. This restaurant is extraordinary.

Stayed one night & dined there - it transforms you to another world. Tea is wonderful & the dinner menus are out of this world fabulous. Each suite is named for a famous contributor to American cuisine. Service is impeccable.
