Alex's Washington Gardens
We go to Washington Gardens frequently. However tonight was an abomination. The server was not listening and pointed out to us several times that she had larger tables and couldn’t remember everything. Also it took the hostess 10 minutes to even ask about our reservation. Completely turned off by this experience!!
Food was delicious as always!
It’s been a little off lately , the pizza is still the best , but the rest is really lacking , I had a lot of cork floating in my red wine it took them 30 mins to replace it and my shrimp Dijon was horrible , the shrimp tasted like iodine and to salty and the crumbs were burnt . So bad we’re going to pass on this place for awhile , also the need to paint and update near the bathroom
We always can count on a very good meal at Washington Gardens. We enjoyed eggplant Parmesan (not on the menu but usually available), shrimp and lobster with pasta, pizza and mussels. The host and staff are very attentive. We will return!
We loved it!
Best pizza ever!
Our daughter was visiting from NYC and asked if we could make a reservation while she was here. She didn’t need to ask twice!
Pizza, pasta, seafood, steaks, AWG has it all and it’s all delicious. Combine with friendly service and generous libations you have a wonderful dining experience we never tire of.
We visit Washington Gardens monthly. Never ever disappointed.
Outstanding service and a wonderful menu.
Pizza (thin crust) is unquestionably the very best west of New Jersey.
Always welcoming and it is great to have a place where they know your name.
It was a busy Monday , 2 large party groups, and the
staff was very attentive, service is always great, as are the delicious menu items. We enjoyed the veal scallopine and chicken sofia.
Just wanted a good dinner locally. My friend and I split salmon and eggplant parm. Good food. Good service.
Always enjoyed Washington Gardens and the food is generally good. However, on this visit the whitefish de johnge was awful. I would remove it from the menu. The fish was totally overcooked, soggy with no structure, and the garlic covering was an uneven mess.
Came in for pizza, soup, and salad prior to HP basketball game. In addition to a range of outstanding dinner entrees, AWG has delicious thin crust pizza too.
Beth is a great server. Food is always great! And Carlos makes the most amazing salads!
Great service and food!
Old fashioned was not good sent back for a different higher shelf but still no good
NYE dinner - food outstanding, service superb! This is our #1 place for dinner on the North Shore.
This is a good dining spot like many older places in the Chicago area it is a step or three above a hole the walk. It had good service and a good noise level but it was early on New Years Eve so noise could have worse later.
Washington Gardens is the real deal. Neighborhood dining in a friendly and homey environment. From your welcome until the final goodbye the folks could not be more genuinely friendly and accommodating. Both of our meals were delicious and satisfying. No skimping on anything. Seafood, pasta and chicken cooked to perfection. Washington Gardens is our go to spot and we always bring our of town guests here for a real treat! The best!
We've eaten at Washington gardens every month or so for many years and the food quality remains consistently good. Our favorite place in Highwood or anywhere on the North Shore!
Outstanding service and superb dishes
Pizza is thin crust that would qualify it as New Jersey style😀
We stop in frequently and we are never disappointed
Always make a reservation
Always good food and kind staff.
Lobe this place
Staff was friendly and very accodmodating about getting food exactly as desired and ordered. The food was great!
Tiny place for great Italian food. Can be very loud in back room if busy, but the food is worth it! Try the pizza and chicken pomadoro!!
My sister and brother-in-law were in town and wanted to dine at AWG, so we gladly visited for the second time in five days. You can never tire of the wonderful service and variety of delectable entrees. We hope to return again soon.
This was our second visit and the food was great. They had the choir come in from Highland Park High School to sing Christmas songs. The menu is long and the service and quality of food makes a great choice for Italian food.
AWG is my comfort food and beverage spot in the north suburbs. Consistently delicious food, great libations, and friendly service.
waitress was repeatedly rude and unpleasant distroyed evening for all we usually love place
Large portions of classic Italian entrees; "suburban pour" on tasty wines; friendly and attentive service. Only complaint -- seating in booths in the bar area is chilly on a winter night. Ask for the main dining room. Otherwise, we love this place!!!
I've been coming here since I was a kid. It's a special, cozy little restaurant that my family knows and loves! Thanks for yet another lovely meal over the holidays!
We have been going to Washington Gardens for 40 years. We always like the food. It was very noisy..much more so than I remember. Service always good, especially Beth.
Great food and service. Pizza is the best! Friendly place that makes you feel like family.
Still my favorite restaurant ! I could eat here every night!!!
Service was. Worse than awful and the food was bad. Usually we like it but this time was really bad
It was my wife’s birthday. We love this place-consistent food quality, friendly staff and cozy atmosphere.
It was very quiet in the restaurant- not a good place to take young kids, even on a Sunday at 5:30p!
We love Washington Garden. Our favorite restaurant
We had one of the specials and it was lukewarm. I dont often send food back but I did. Came back the same temperature and waitress said she was getting yelled at and couldnt make it any hotter. Ridiculous
