We recently had a chance to eat in the kitchen at the Chefs table. This place is amazing. From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave it is truly the perfect dining experience. The staff treats you like family in their home. The service is perfect. The food is out of this world. I have eaten in their dining room before and the place to sit is truly the kitchen so you can watch all the action. The second we walked into the kitchen. the staff stopped what they were doing and stood at attention as the sous chef welcomed us to their home. The wine list is unbelievable as is the menu. Again, the staff goes out of their way to make sure you have the best experience you have ever had anywhere and they succeed, The food is local, fresh and true farm to table! It is also creative and amazing, see the pictures. If you are ever given the chance to eat here, TAKE IT!!!!

Four of us had a lovely dinner on a Wednesday evening. Every aspect of the experience was perfect. We especially enjoyed that the service was a nice combination of professionalism, friendliness, and humor. Three of us had the Here and Now menu, and one had The Good Earth (vegetarian) menu. Each course was interesting and delicious. Since we had begun our evening in the bar with cocktails, each couple shared a wine pairing. (The servings are generous.) For most of us, the prices are high, but, for an occasional splurge, the Inn at Little Washington is an excellent choice.

We have celebrated many very special occasions at the Inn and always been very satisfied. This weekend we splurged and spent 2 nights so we could really indulge ourselves.

The Inn is certainly not casual but it never feels stuffy or formal. Every detail from the uniforms of the staff, the decor and overall atmosphere is meant to enhance your experience.

Our Norman House Garden Suite (room 16) was perfect for our two day stay. We took advantage of the spacious living room to enjoy afternoon snacks and wine with our friends. We utilized the beautiful garden patio during the day to relax and after dinner for wine with our friends.

Dinner was excellent both nights. The Inn has an exceptional wine list but also a very fair corkage policy where they waive the corkage fee for a bottle of wine if you also purchase a bottle of wine from their list.

I am certain we will return

Kathy and I were pleased that we managed a dinner reservation, 17 June 2017, at 5:30 pm. From 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm, we were regaled with a genuine welcome by the persons at the front of the Inn, overwhelmed by the courtesies of the wait staff, delighted by the amazing 7-course dinner, and the recipients of just a splendid evening. We relaxed with after dinner coffee in the garden and surprised that a maitre 'd came out to ensure we were pleased with the ambience, environment and the quality of the service. If you wish to be spoiled completely, then the Inn is the place to have a special evening.

What can I say, a lot of things in D.C. tend to be overly hyped and this was one thing that lived up to expectations. Do the wine pairing menu and let yourself be carried along on a culinary journey, just go with it. You will be there for hours, so just relax and enjoy. This is a perfect special occasion event.
