The food and wine are fantastic - as is the service. I didn't like the fact that the latest we could eat was 7:45.

There was nothing I didn't like about it but there was everything that I did like! The drive there alone was fabulous! The Inn is so fantastic that I wish I could live there! We were treated like royalty from the time we walked in to the time we left!

Whilst on holiday my wife & I had the pleasure of having a meal with friends at The Inn @ Little Washington. It was one of the best nights from start to finish. The meals were second to none. Again the cheese board awesome. Wines all paired with each meal. Overall a marvellous experience.

Like most other reviews of the food at the Inn, the food was amazing. My wife and I had 3 other couples (all great friends) dine with us for my wife's birthday. I think we all considered it to be the best and most interesting meal we have ever eaten. Service was impeccable. We were greeted outside as we arrived,... More

From Flossie the Cheese Cow to special menus commemorating our anniversary to the car waiting for us as we walked out the door to obviously the food, this place was Spot On. Highlight of the food: Tuna "filet mignon" topped with foie gras... who would have thought? Beyond excellent and such a unique pairing! What wasn't great? We stayed in... More

We appreciate your nice review and comments, and understand your disappointment in not seeing the kitchen. While we accommodate kitchen tours for house guests and diners who express an interest, it is not our intent to invite all dinner guests into the kitchen nightly, as the resulting large volume of visitors would overwhelm what is our only, working kitchen.

Best to inquire and see if you can get a package which would include dinner, lodging, parking and breakfast. The dinner by itself is expensive, yet worth the cost. Hotel accommodations are exceptional, we stayed in the Inn. The Inn has adjacent properties; however, the main inn is the way to go if you plan in advance. Hotel is a... More

For that special occasion--when you want to enjoy artfully presented dishes that surprise your palate, when you accept to be seduced by a wine that might be outside your normal price range, and when you want to lean back to enjoy carefully timed, sophisticated service--this is where you should go.

Everything you hope this place will be. The atmosphere, ambiance, food, service...is top. My recommendation is to stay at a local B&B in town so you can make a full experience out of visiting this part of Virginia. An experience not to be missed.

Seems an odd title, but summarizes the experiences: the moment we sat down, the host and a waiter synchronized filling our water glasses to the second, and throughout the mean, they set the standard for excellent service. Needless to say, the food matched the service and ambiance. I made a secret reservation for our 25th wedding anniversary, and we arrived... More
