Great special occasion meal for 15th wedding anniversary

Our meal was delicious and worth the trek. We found the decor bizarre and not to our taste, but everything else was spot on. Might do it again for another anniversary or birthday meal.

Never imagined I'd use "magnificent" to describe a dining experience but it's the only adjective that works for this review. Every staffer we encountered was pleasant and appeared to love what they do-from the valet all the way through. From the moment you arrive, no detail is overlooked. We had reserved a few months prior and they ask if it's... More

Though we have lived in Northern Virginia for more than 30 years, and eaten at many 3 Stars around the globe, we had never traveled 90 minutes to eat at the Inn at Little Washington. Shame on us. The Restaurant is superb as is The Inn. Patrick O'Connell runs a first class operation. Dinner was one of three "fixed" seven... More

We just visited the Inn for the fifth time for our anniversary. We had dinner in the kitchen at one of the chef's tables and we also stayed overnight, as always. It's not difficult to keep writing amazing things about this establishment. I must say though, that the chef's table is a dramatic and fabulous event unto itself. We are... More

I don't get it. Why are there so few reviews for this place? There should be thousands, at least by west coast standards. My wife & I dined here with four friends in June and paid a bit of a surcharge to eat at a table in the kitchen. It was worth it, but certainly not necessary to fully enjoy... More

After 12 travels from Europe to DC over the last 15 years I finally made it out to the Little Inn, thanks to local friends who also long desired to visit. Traffic out of DC on a Friday was terrible, the drive took one and a half hour more than expected, and we barely made it, with a near 20... More

I don't think I could say anything wonderful that hasn't been said. One of the best meals of my life.

Not even sure where to begin on this review! Coming here has been on my husband's bucket list. Making this happen was insured by a gift certificate from our daughter. I think I'd actually rather start by describing the breakfasts that are included in the Inn's stay cost. In a word-- wow. One starts with a "flight of juices". Literally... More

To celebrate a recent birthday, we chose the I@LW for dinner...a place we have eaten and lodged in the past. If anything, it was better than previous visits (and that is a tremendously high bar). The service was impeccable, the food excellent, and the experience (as always) memorable. As a final highlight, we were given a tour of Patrick O'Connell's... More
