Best soft shell crab!!! Great eggplant parmagiana...in fact, the food is always outstanding. I LOVE Washington Gardens! It is one of my favorite restaurants and rivals any and all downtown venues!
Washington Gardens is a classic! The food is fabulous, and a good value. The waitstaff functions like a well-oiled machine and service is top-notch.
Amazing food! Love Washington Gardens! Best Pizza ever!
We had a great dinner, the food was spectacular, service was perfect, felt relaxed, they didn't rush us.
It was a perfect evening, will definitely go back. Mimi's Salmon melted in my mouth.
Service is always great - Server is wonderful, sorry I don’t remember her name
We have been going to this restaurant for many, many years. We have never had a bad meal or bad service. We like it because the ambiance has always been the same, and it has a warm, homey feel to it. The food is always great and everything is fresh and homemade.
Food was very good as usual. Our waitress was very friendly but slow. Tight squeeze and the people next to us weren’t happy about being so close.
This is our favorite restaurant to go to usually for special occasions. The frog legs are my family's favorite. The service is always excellent!!!
We always love Washington Gardens because the food is so consistent. This night however, my dinner was really not very good & I order it almost every time I am there. Hoping this was just a fluke.
trreated me very nicely on my birthday which I apprecaite
Haven't been here in many years. Found it much better than I remembered. Fun atmosphere and good food.
I’ve been going to Washington Gardens restaurant ever since I was a very small child.
I grew up in H.P. I’m no longer residing there but I keep on going! !!
Everything was great! We love coming here. Never disappointed.
thanks for another wonderful meal! great job by all
Great food and service.
Great pizza. Nice bartender. I'll be back.
It was great as always but I did not receive my open table points
If you like Old School Italian, this is the place for you. Great food, great relaxed feel. Locals really go there. order a 10" or 12" pizza as an appetizer. Lamb Shank Osso Buco was great, 4 types of Veal dishes, plenty of Pasta, Chicken and fish to choose from. When i say Old School, i mean Old school, you still get Soup or Salad with your Entree. A must try if your North Shore or Northwest.
love this place, as do our friends. Always great food and great service.
Pizza and salad - always fantastic. Great place to feel at home with great service, good food and friendly staff.
Great as always
First time at this place ! Food was very good! Restaurant is long and narrow and booths are small but we enjoyed the food and the service was very good!
Soft shell crabs, pizza, and beer! What could be better!
Best Italian restaurant in Highwood. Generous wine pours. Friendly staff. Best house salad I've had. Varied complete menu. Osso Buco is a highlight.
Our family dined at AWG on Mother’s Day and although the restaurant was packed, the kitchen and servers did there usual excellent work. Started with the soft shell crab appetizer, one deep fried and the other pan fried. Both were wonderful, but next time I’ll go with the deep fried.
Our four dinners, three chicken entries and a salad with grilled shrimp, were delicious. The ranch dressing is the best anywhere.
The only difficult aspect of dining at AWG is choosing an entree. Everything, pizza, pasta, steak, seafood, and chicken, are fantastic. The chocolate brownie sundae we shared for dessert was the proper ending to a wonderful Mother’s Day evening.
The staff are ALL amazing. Always very welcoming. The food is ALWAYS amazing.. if you blink you will miss it because its entrance is TINY but dont be fooled... inside is AMAZINGLY cozy.
Great local eatery that's been there for many, many years. We go at least once a month and have never less than a great meal and a great time. Highly recommended.
Very very busy. When I went there ! The food was good but the place was very short staffed . I will be going back the menu has a lot to offer!
The food, service and ambiance is perfect at Washington Gardens, which is why my wife and I celebrated our anniversary there 2 years in a row. My birthday, and other special occasions, as well as just dinner out, have always been perfect and enjoyable at this very special restaurant.
Our favorite Italian restaurant ,
Consistently great service and
delicious varied menu. The fresh
seafood is outstanding.
Alex’s Washington Gardens never disappoints! The food is fresh, flavorful and outstanding. What a value! The sauce is spectacular and the pasta is cooked perfectly. If up for something simple, the pizza cannot be beat. I do not know of a more welcoming, friendly neighborhood place on the North Shore. But please, do not request a booth in the bar. That is MY favorite spot!
The food was delicious and plentiful. The service was superb!
We had an excellent experience. It has the feel of a traditional neighborhood Italian restaurant with a broad menu and exceptional service. Friendly, warm, cozy. One of the jewels of Highwood.
Throw back in a good way. Food was good although on the basic side—just the way the clientele want it. Pizza is the best thin crust we’ve had since moving here 15 years ago. We went on a Saturday night and it was packed with regulars. Our table of 50 something’s was on the younger side but everyone in the restaurant seemed lively and the bar was full. Veal dishes were good.
Terrific Italian dishes, old school.Pizza is the best, everything fresh and good
Beth is the best waitress ever and Victor always greets us like old friends! Outstanding meal every time!
We are regulars. Great menu. Outstanding service
Our choices never disappoint
We’ll be back
Chicken Pomodoro and Pollo Basilico both tasted great! Never a disappointment.
Wonderful food & service as always. Our Favorite restaurant.
Food and Service has to be good to keep going back...three weeks in a row. The special family recipe for red sauce perfectly seasoned. Oftentimes, tomato sauce is acidic...AWG recipe is full flavored, well balanced and goes with any protein selection. I've had it with their meatballs, salmon, chicken...whatever selection ...it is delicious. Ample portions. Maria has luckily been our server for the last three weeks...she is pleasant, accommodating, sweet personality offering menu suggestions .
