There's not much to be said about the Inn that hasn't already been posted. It's hard to believe this establishment is able to live up the extraordinarily high expectations of new visitors, but it did. The total experience was nothing less than sensational. I've never been so well-cared for during a dining experience. The Inn at Little Washington is an... More

One, if not the, best meals I have ever had. The service is impeccable and the food is out of this world. My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary there and had a truly exceptional dining experience.

I have loved this place since I proposed to my wife here and then celebrated our anniversary by staying overnight. The food is excellent, and although the room is pricey, it was worth every penny!

It was my 70th birthday celebration at the Chef and owner pulled out all of the stops. A wonderful cocktail in the cozy bar followed by a escort into the Beautiful and spotlessly clean kitchen by a group of altar boys with incense burners. Then the unbelievable 7 course dinner with paired wines. Marvelous, heavenly and relaxing 2 hour experience... More

As we have dined across North America our expectations for this "Bucket List" Meal were quite high. Upon arrival we was greeted by a very jovial seer-suckered Valet. The Reception Staff adjusted our table, as we had an unexpected extra guest, with ease and we were served and waited upon with flawless perfection throughout the entire meal. The wait staff's...

My wife and I stayed at the Inn and had dinner there for our anniversary. It broke our previous record for most expensive restaurant meal, but you go there for not only the food, but the entire experience. Dinner was about three hours of relaxation and pampering. Every course was beautifully prepared and presented, and we didn't walk out hungry.... More
