This is a consistently solid restaurant, with good pasta dishes and great thin pizza. The snarky waitress thought she was being clever, but it wasn't working for us. We'd mentioned on Open Table that we were celebrating our anniversary, but they obviously didn't look at it.
We enjoyed dining at Alex’s Washington Garden on Monday night. This was our second visit this month. The food is excellent. I had the Hay and Straw pasta as recommended by my hair stylist who also enjoys eating there. We will return soon,
The food was great but the host at the door was most unpleasant. I had erred on my reservation and made it on Open Table for Friday night rather than Saturday night! I was most apologetic but he was horribly rude both on the phone and when we got there! He also had a fight with one of the patrons while we were there! This was very uncomfortable. He definitely needs to learn host manners if he is going to work the phone and the entry stand.
Washington Gardens has good food consistently. Their emails keep you up to date on specials, which is nice. The staff is always friendly and attentive. I’ve been going there happily for decades! My only suggestion is that they update the decor. That hasn’t changed in decades either!
The ravioli al forno that is suppose to imitate Willy’s *My Favorite Inn* is not doing the job. My husband could barely eat it. The marinara sauce is delicious. The place needs a face lift. It’s old and dingy. I think there is mold by the booths near the bar on the wood. Basically the old clientele continues to visit and its a thriving business.
Washington Gardens has amazing food.
Washington Gardens never disappoints. Best pizza in town by far. Service, food and ambience are outstanding.
The very best on the North Shore, great food and service.
consistently great, our favorite restaurant and staff !
Always great food and service at Washington Gardens.
Always a wonderful experience. Great food and service.
Great local restaurant. Always good service and consistently good food.
From the food to the service to the ambiance is always excellent. One of my favorite spots in highwood.
May have been short of waitstaff as service was extremely slow.
really good reliable food at a nice price and friendly people
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.
Pizza was outstanding
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.
