The food was incredible--both in taste and appearance--there's no doubting that, and that's why I have to give all 5 stars. However, I was just surprised at the lack of attention to detail by the staff--server & food runners--as I had to remind them about a food restriction of mine multiple times.

Dinner at the Inn at Little Washington is an experience not to be forgotten. From the time you enter the building you are treated as a long awaited guest. A review really cannot do justice to the food. Everything is exceedingly fresh. The recipes are very creative (Caesar salad ice cream) and all the food is beautifully presented. Two outstanding...

Several months ago, a close friend decided to rent an apartment in DC for the month of November to be near her daughter. She asked me to visit her for a few days and I said yes and offered to plan some special events for us. Since she has been talking about her wish to dine at the Inn at... More

What can you say about this wonderful gem that hasn't already been said. It is an evening of service and surprises. The combined flavors are all so unexpected. The decor sets the stage for what is indeed "some enchanted evening!" There can be no better place for celebrating a special occasion.

We did not eat at the restaurant, but briefly chatted with the gals in charge of the gardens. The fresh vegetables grown organically looked magnificent. We were invited to see the gardens, walk around and to ask the girls any questions. Despite having their lunches in hand, these gals were very friendly, and patiently answered my questions. I can't wait... More

What a magnificent meal! We took friends out we had not seen in several years and wanted it to be a special evening. I had no idea of the other world I was entering, when we stepped inside the Inn's restaurant. Greeted by name we were seated right away and handed personalized menus (which we were given to take home... More

My wife and I first visited The Inn two years after it opened. They hadn't built the sleeping quarters yet. Over the next 35 years, we've returned several times. Last week (two weeks after they were awarded two stars in the new Michelin Guide for DC) we took friends from Georgia. As always , it was superb. The place really... More

I was excited to visit this restaurant, especially since it had just received two stars this year. Expectation was high but the experience did not meet the expectation. Pros: Valet took your key and asked what name is the reservation under. The valet guy then walks you in to let the receptionist know your party had arrived. This is how... More
