I have wanted to go to The Inn at Little Washington for years, having heard so much about it. I was afraid that this restaurant would not live up to my expectations, as they were very high indeed. I need not have worried. From the moment we stepped in to the Inn to the time we left, there was not... More

With our kids both away at camp, my husband and I took advantage of our relative freedom and drove down to Washington, VA to stay at Inn at Little Washington. The Inn is in a VERY quiet town without much to do, but it's such a lovely place that you don't really need anything else. From the moment we arrived,... More

Perhaps the most telling example of how good our meal was involved a conversation we had two weeks later when I asked my wife, “What we were doing two weeks ago tonight?” Without a blink of hesitation she replied, “Eating at The Inn at little Washington.” Then we both smiled as we recalled one of the most wonderful meals of...

A beautifully choreographed ballet of food from the starting amusement bites to the flourishing finish. We were fortunate to have a table in the kitchen and could see some of the prep. It feels like hyperbole, but the food was delicious and the service was impeccable and the experience is a work of art. I do not exagerate!

The Inn is all that it is said to be. The food is delicious, service friendly and yet professional and the venue an experience in itself. It is expensive but worth the price for a special occasion

We just finished dinner celebrating my husband's 40th. The meal was exquisite. Come early to have a cocktail at the bar. And consider ordering some of the vegetarian dishes -- the mushroom "meatloaf" was amazing. Of course, this was quite possibly the most expensive meal I have ever had. Even w/o alcohol, you should expect to pay at least $500... More

We went here for our 20 wedding anniversary for dinner. Amazing. We did the full monty and paired our dinner with their recommended wines. $350 pp but worth the whole experience at least once in you life!

If ever you are in the DC area and want to have a really special dining experience, this is the place to go. I have never been to a restaurant this high end that is so casual about everything else. There is no official dress code - their only concern is to spoil you. Southern hospitality from the time you... More

Dinner at The Inn at Little Washington is not so much a meal as an experience. From the minute you pull up at the front of the restaurant, you are treated like royalty. Everyone welcomes you as if you are a long-awaited guest. When they confirm your reservation on the phone, they will ask if you are celebrating a special... More
