What's not to love?

The building is fascinating, the food is unusual and the service is exceptional. The string onion appetizer is just as addictive as described by a staff member at one of the wineries we visited earlier in the day. The Chinese buns are melt in your mouth good. But the halibut, oh the halibut. So... read more

Loved the old building and history. The food...AMAZING. It's on the fancy side but worth the money. Our server Blake was so wonderful to us.

Wow. Not only did this restaurant have perfect ambiance, but the food was great. Our waiter, Blaze, is worth the wait to get him, too, if you can. What a great guy and he made our dining experience so fun! My friend had the halibut and she described it as fabulous with a few expletives mixed in. I had the... More

Delicious, all the way around, best meal yet in WW! Ambience is great, sit at the chef's counter, so you can watch these folks cook!! The filet cooked in the brick oven was amazing. Service was excellent and wine selection impressive.

Located inside a former lumber mill/factory, the setting is intriguing, with lots of brick and old wood and. But the food is what you're there for, and it is special, featuring local and regional sources for produce and meats. Places like this make me wish I had a larger capacity, as I really wanted to try the pork bun appetizer... More

Want a fine dining experience you will remember for years to come? Try the Whitehouse Crawford. Their menu is diverse and very rich--all of the dishes were excellent. I had the pork and it was just one of the best tasting dishes ever! The location itself is gorgeous and the staff are all incredibly friendly. Cannot wait to go back!

Mary @ Inn at Abeja made us reservations and goodness were we happy she did. This place was an old factory that has been converted into commercial space housing the restaurant in addition to other businesses, a winery among them. It seems trite to say that this place is a Walla Walla original but when you dine in a restaurant... More

The airy, light interior of this historic structure is the perfect compliment to wonderful local food and wine. I had an emmer farro porridge that served as a wonderful vehicle for a variety of local herbs. The halibut was fresh, flown in that day. The burger is an obvious local favorite, accompanied by very finely shredded Walla Walla sweet onions.... More

Two years ago we fell in love with Walla Walla and this restaurant. Returning on a Wednesday night, we could see it is still popular. The service was good, although our waiter tended to look only at my husband while talking to us. The food was artfully presented, fresh and excellent tasting. The wine list is extensive and we were... More

I am limited on time here. But this restaurant was all that I expected. Service, food, wine were outstanding. If anything could be better, the seats by the window separating the winery get drafty.
