What more can be said about this restaurant. I know the price is high or should I say very high but the food, the service, and everything else is so close to perfection it is so worth the price.

This is the place to go when you want the best. The wows keep coming, from the perfectly attentive service to the innovative menu and charming ambiance. Presentation is beautiful without looking "tweezered." There's a complete tasting menu for vegetarians. They gilded the lily by giving us little boxes of the Inn in miniature, filled with tiny cookies and candies,... More

The moment you walk in you know you are in for a treat! The decor is beautiful and our table was private and yet not tucked away. The food really is spectacular… and that is why they get the ratings…the meal was just a taste sensation. We look forward to going back!

My wife and I had the good fortunate to have dinner at the Inn at Little Washington with my four other couples. I have had dinner in large groups in expensive restaurants with mixed results so I was a little worried about the quality of the service. I had no need to worry and the experience was first rate.

The inn at Little Washington lives up to its reputation in ever way. Food, wine and service were exceptional. Make sure you ask for a tour of the kitchen - it is remarkable.

After hearing about the Inn at Little Washington for years I was finally able to dine there. It is everything I expected and more. The bar was high and they just kept jumping over it! I cannot point to even one area where they lacked; not service, atmosphere, food quality, taste or creativity. This is the PERFECT place for that... More

Our dinner at Inn at Little Washington was not just a dining experience, it was an event. The dining room was absolutely beautiful, the service was first class. We tried the "Gastronaut" tasting menu which was 8 small plates of delicious food. I loved every minute of being there. They even offer a tour of the kitchen, where you can... More

The Inn at Little Washington was absolutely beautiful! The food was magnificent: high tea with scrumptious crumpets; a 7-course dinner with pan-sauteed lobster in tomato butter, aged Guda mac and cheese with Virginia Ham, caviar and crab on toast, minted split pea soup, and oh…the deserts! Our party had the “7 Deadly Sins,” which were miniatures of all their best... More

We lived in Maryland for over a dozen years; and throughout that time, we constantly heard the praises sung of the amazing restaurant at The Inn at Little Washington. Deciding it was worth the splurge, we went for a special birthday dinner. Seriously? This is the place that has been earning such raves for years? I feel like the only... More
