This restaurant needs no explanation--it is well known and well regarded. The food and service are outstanding, as are the prices! It is a great place for a special occasion. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

Ummed and ached about whether to go for dinner whilst staying at the White Moose Inn (see review) only because of the expected cost (Australian dollar is in a sad state) but glad we did. Not only is the restaurant, inn and gardens a pleasure to wander through the dining room offers that little bit of theatre that is so... More

Though my wife and I did not stay at the Inn, we were afforded the opportunity to take afternoon tea at the restaurant this weekend. We have experienced dozens of teas across the U.S., and the quality of the service at the Inn at Little Washington was supreme. If you enjoy afternoon tea, I highly recommend you visit the Inn....

This is a carefully orchestrated experience, every detail of food and service planned to be exquisite. It's not a place for picky eaters or those who want a large plate of something. There are so many fabulous little "bonus" dishes that emerge, beautiful to look at and an adventure to eat. We found every offering delicious. The lamb carpaccio was... More

Dining at the Inn is a fantastic experience. This was our sixth visit and it lived up to the great experiences of our prior dinners. The menu now gave multiple small portion choices for four courses. Each course we tried was exceptional. I had caviar with crab, lamb loin carpaccio, peppered kingfish, and duck breast. All were fantastic and the... More

We didn't get a chance to dine, but spent a lovely hour in the Monkey Bar with some delightful cocktails and nibbles. It's a fascinating space, and the team running the restaurant and bar are impeccable. We hope to get back for the full dinner experience soon.

The superlatives are inadequate. The ILW is a flawless experience from start to finish: atmosphere, decor, presentation, menu, drinks, wine, everything. I'm not a food critic or a foodie: you can read the professionals' opinions elsewhere. I'll offer a few thoughts if you are not sure if it's worth the splurge. What I didn't read about in advance, and perhaps... More

Outstanding, pinnacle-type dining experience for special occasions. All options were presented beautifully, they were delicious and inventive as well. Wine selection was outstanding. We recommend the cheese-cart option for dessert, as the Inn staff make it's presentation very entertaining. Also, request a tour of the kitchen ahead of time. The facilities and operations are impressive to observe.

The gold standard. Exceptional service, beautiful presentation, and most importantly, delicious, flavorful, wonderful food! Wine pairings you won't think of, fusions of texture and taste that are unique, invention and attention to detail. Each course a treat for all the senses. Everyone should go here at least once so they will have the standard to evaluate any other restaurant.

We celebrated our anniversary, again, at the Inn. This is our third visit in seven years, and as per previous ones, a reinforcement in our conviction that it is not worth the cost, in spite of the superlative cuisine and service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with views to a gorgeous French-inspired garden. The menus were personalized for our evening... More
