We had been there before but some time ago and were greeted with the same excellent food and service. The chef is also the owner and supervised the preparation and presentation of every dish, most impressive. 4 of us had different entrees and we all enjoyed it. The chef came to visit the table briefly and answered some culinary questions... More

No need to reserve a table in the diningroom as the bar scene is where it's at. And, after a day of drinking wine, a special cocktail made by the famous bartender Robertsen is all you need. He is a mixologist that knows how to make really interesting drinks and yet the balance of flavors is delightful. Just reading what... More

We took a local friend's recommendation for one of his favourite restaurants, Whitehouse-Crawford. Dating back to 1880, the site of this restaurant was originally a planing mill and furniture company. Destroyed by fire in late 1903, it was rebuilt in brick and continued as a planing mill and furniture factory until it was sold to the City of Walla Walla... More

The wait staff was awesome and the food perfect. We were recommended the restaurant by one of the tasting rooms, and we were not disappointed. Although we did not do it, you may bring your own bottle of wine here and simply enjoy the food and atmosphere. We drank their house wine and found it excellent!

Lots of servers - not a a lot of service. The food was okay (steak was very good). We were very rushed (which seemed to be a theme - see my review of Saffron). Arrived early, and were told we could have a drink by the fire (we were hoping there was a bar - which we later saw!!!!). we... More

I've reviewed Whitehouse-Crawford before ("The-the Tip-tip Top-top Walla-walla Restau-rant") and just had a large family meal using their private event dining room. So I'll just say again, there are many fine restaurants in Walla Walla, and some I eat at more often because this is more expensive, but when I have out of town family coming and I want to... More

I love this Restaurant! The food is excellent, good drinks, great wine list and the service is excellent! I love that you can sit up at the dining bar and watch the chefs cook or just eat in the dining room! Good ambience!

On weekends be sure to have a reservation or be prepared to wait. They don't have an extensive menu but we dined there two nights in a row and everything was excellent.The steak you could cut with a fork and the sauce was delicious!

Got off to a really bad start, our table was not ready, instead they wanted to seat us at the Chef's Counter. Had to wait about 15 minutes for a table - this was on a week night and we had reservations. Our server took our drink order and then disappeared. When she finally reappeared she informed us that they... More

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere - bring a camera and get some great shots by the fireplace before you are seated for dinner. The food and service were top-notch.
