Friends and colleagues had suggested the Inn and Little Washington for years. I initially made a reservation for an early dinner. A colleague recommended staying overnight since the roads to Little Washington are not well lit at night and I planned to have a multi course meal with wine pairings. Fortunately, a member of The Inn called to confirm my...

I booked our stay on the Inn’s Internet site. I specified that it was my wife’s birthday. I received confirming emails and a phone call. From the time we arrived we were treated like special guests. It was refreshing how attentive and detail oriented the staff were. Once we arrived, our car and belongings were whisked away and we were...

My husband surprised me with dinner for our wedding anniversary. Although it took almost 2 hours to drive from DC (commuter traffic) it was so worth it. The restaurant is charming and the staff expects you - everyone greets you by name and treats you like a friend. I love how everyone had a specialty and could speak knowledgeably about...

I had been looking forward to staying here and having dinner at this acclaimed restaurant for a long time. My husband and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.

The meal was very good but I cannot understand how the $500 plus tab for two after tip could ever be justified. I live near Toronto and we are blessed with many excellent restaurants. I have been spoiled by several which serve the same calibre food at half the price.

Although we visited the restaurant 5 years ago, I had to write something to describe our experience which is still lingering. With that said, still remembering a dining experience after so much time should validate the quality of this impeccable establishment. The service is phenomenal.

Everything you've heard about the food at The Inn at Little Washington is true and then some. Yes, it is pricy but the outstanding quality of food will leave you breathless. Eat dish was presented like artwork on a plate or bowl. The wait staff was wonderful and very attentive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the small town of Washington, Virginia, The Inn at Little Washington is the only Double Forbes Five Star, Double AAA Five Diamond property in the Washington metro area. The Inn's eighteen bedrooms and suites are sumptuous hideaways created by Joyce Evans, a London stage and set designer, for whom The Inn has become a life's work. Many of the furnishings were purchased in England, numbered and shipped to Virginia to be assembled on site like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The Inn offers a range of accommodations from well-appointed rooms to luxurious, two story suites many with balconies and garden views. The Inn's dining rooms are pure fantasy - a wondrous cocoon of luxury. Rose-colored, silk lampshades float above each table creating a private, romantic world below. Chef/Proprietor Patrick O'Connell's creations arrive as if served by invisible hands, course after course more dazzling than the last. From the award-winning 14,000 bottle wine cellar, which includes the finest offerings from Bordeaux, Burgundy, California and Virginia, the Sommelier plays matchmaker between you, your dinner and the wine. ... more   less
