Lovely way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary

We had a fabulous dinner on the porch. Great service and wonderful atmosphere! Would come here again for sure.

We made reservations at Whistling Swan for my birthday. We had a lovely table out on the porch and our meal was wonderful. The wine list is extensive and our waiter was very helpful. Never disappointed!

This restaurant is somewhere between "down home" and upscale. The chef definitely knows what he (she?) is doing as every dish was excellently prepared and served. I'm giving the place 4 stars instead of 5 because it has no bar (serves only wine and beer) and a very limited menu. There were only 6 entrees to choose from, one of... More

Excellent in every way. Do not hesitate to eat dinner here and/or to stay here and enjoy the included and delicious light breakfast buffet, or just have a beer in the bar. Lovely, warm, attentive management.

Our greeter and server were excellent. There are cloth tablecloths and ambience is a step more elegant than most DC restaurants. Dinner included a type of Wisconsin Ginger Beer from Viroqua and Arugula salad for me and husband and mixed greens for son. Both were excellent-very fresh, attractively dressed. We were given shot glasses of a palate cleanser which I... More

The ambience is lovely, wait staff, superb and the FOOD- amazing! I had the pork chop- biggest I've ever seen, had to take 1/2 home. Partner had the scallops. Each bite was a treat. For dessert, try the donut ice cream sundae- but split it between 2 people. In the summertime, if it's hot out, ask for a table inside.... More

We had an excellent meal for our special occasion visit. We were seated immediately. The service was excellent. I had appraised the restaurant of my wife's food allergy when I made the reservations. Our waiter was informed in advance, brought up the topic when handing us the menus, had checked the ingredients of every dish and advised my wife on... More

We really liked this restaurant. We showed up without reservation and, after a day of outdoor fun, looking and smelling definitely on the casual side of the other customers. Still we got friendly reception and very competent service. The dining room is really inviting with high ceiling, big windows and tastefully set tables. The menu definitely shows chef's willingness to... More

This is the one restaurant that my husband and I MUST visit every time we go to DC which is at least twice a year. No matter how many nights we are staying one night is dedicated to Whistling Swan no matter if our stay is short or long. Every meal we have had has been cooked to perfection and... More

We were advised by the hotel we were staying in to dine at the Whistling Swan - we did not have reservations, and when we walked in the woman made us feel like they were doing us a favor by letting us dine in their establishment. This is an upscale restaurant with prices to go with it. The food was... More
