Overall good. The only real area for improvement was that it took about 20-30 min before anyone came by to get even our drink order. Once we were noticed things improved but we sat for a while. More

American | Washington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

The Inn at Little Washington is celebrating its 40th year and it remains one of the finest restaurants in the United States; if not the world. Fabulous service; outstanding creative menu; super wine list and a few surprises along the way. There are three four course menu's to choose from, but you can mix/match from each. Service is even better than what you would expect in a restaurant of this quality that is world renown. And Patrick O'Connell's creative cooking is just wonderful. Worth a visit. More

Mia's Italian Kitchen is Rooted in Family

The inspiration came from one of the partner’s unique relationship with his great-grandmother – she didn’t speak a word of English, so they communicated through food. Originally from Naples, Italy, she used easy, simple, raw ingredients - an approach that Mia’s will carry over in our own menu, which will include house-made pasta, Italian sandwiches, charcuterie, and square pizzas.More
