outdoor seating is lovely, as it is all in the shade, unlike the other side of the street, where, even with an umbrella, you cannot be completely in the shade. Tap beer good; salmon excellent, onion rings excellent. Three of us are vegan, so, even though this is a steak restaurant, they found something to eat.

It's always amazing to me that the food and service at Washington Prime is so consistently good/ excellent. I frequent restaurants pre covid and have not had as good of an experience as I do on a regular basis at Washington Prime!

We had an incredible brunch on Saturday at noon when the restaurant opened. The servers were very friendly and attentive. On a sunny hot day, they arranged a perfect table under a shady umbrella that covered all six of us. All restaurant personnel wore masks courteously. And the food was INCREDIBLE! Fresh Norwalk Oysters, perfect filet mignon, a chicken and waffle recipe that takes the dish to a gourmet level, and more. Worth the price tag!

They did a really good job with both food and service. The outdoor seating was very nice. They also were taking a lot of precautions with COVID-19, which we all appreciated. They checked our temperature at the door! Will definitely go back.

Given the challenges of outdoor dining exclusively in the age of COVID-19 restrictions, everything was well done . Service was slow in the beginning but improved over the course of the meal.

I have been to Washington Prime countless times, every time we have an amazing experience. The staff are always welcoming, kind and knowledgeable of the menu/restaurant. I wish i could give them 10 stars! With everything going on right now with COVID, they've done a beautiful job with the outdoor setup, even in a major rainstorm we stayed perfectly dry under the tent. I feel safe, sanitary and well cared for.
Thank you for all that your team does! Will always be back!

Washington Prime has figured out how to make our new normal work with style! The outdoor dining is elegant and fun at the same time. We could always count on great food and great service and that has not changed. It is so great to get out and dine again!

We had to wait two months for a restaurant meal and Washington Prime did not disappoint. Excellent steak! Outside dining was fine just needed a heat lamp or two! Service was excellent as usual.

Filet was very good, cooked perfectly. Oscar style was very good, so were the Brussel sprouts. Mac and cheese wasn’t as good as the rest. It’s a fairly expensive steakhouse so the expectations are high. I’d definitely come back, specifically for the steak.

Fell in Love Again.
We scheduled an impromptu dinner and were blown away by both the impeccable, attentive service and the flawless food execution. And the bartender nailed our special-order cocktails.
Details:
Masa oysters were crisp and juicy, nestled in a tasty remoulade.
Tony’s oysters were roasted to tender perfection.
Burrata and beet salad was fresh, and the burger came exactly as ordered.
We will definitely be back.
