Contemporary American
The Zagat Survey says, "There's much to like about this Washington Park Italian-New American: "good food", a "great patio" & "cheerful" service & ambiance."
An upscale age-diverse crowd mingles at this popular neighborhood restaurant & gathering place east of Wash Park.
A covered strip on the south and west side with heat and misters makes for convivial outdoor seating (you just might see a neighbor). A beautiful lounge is off to the side. 11 beers on tap, 15 in bottles and an excellent wine list at the elegant U-shaped bar. A roomy & elegant banquet room with its own patio and a presentation compatible 80” HDTV complete this restaurant for every occasion.
Dinners are mid-priced, with a nice selection of grilled seafood & steaks & several fancy pasta dishes. The lunch offerings include sandwiches, pizza, salads & pasta.

    Drinks were made poor. French onion soup needed salt, salads were bland. Steak was $50 and just okay. Totally for 3 of us having one drink each and dinner was $300. Ridiculous and over rated.

    This is a charming venue! The service is top notch! Abby and Riley did an excellent job serving in the live music room! The food was so delicious! Perfect for sharing on date night or with friends! The drinks are tasty and refreshing. I recommend the Upside Down Pineapple drink as a sweet, delicious dessert beverage. The cheese plate is also an excellent choice to nom on throughout a live music show. We saw an excellent brother duo, The Aber Brothers, perform an acoustic set of popular songs throughout the decades. The intermission included a bagpipe player to celebrate St Patrick’s Day! 🍀 Truly the most lovely time! Thank you so much! 10/10 would recommend Washington Park Grille. 😊

    Seated immediately. Menu is a nice mix of dishes. Wine menu is diverse. Wine ordered was what I expected. Price was fair. Food was just average, nothing more. Price was high given the quality and quantity. Servers were efficient but not didn’t add to the experience. Ambiance is great that is why I return. Enjoyed the entertainment in lounge after dinner.

    Several dishes were not warm when served. They brought out entrees before appetizers, tuna entre ordered med rare, came out well done, pork chop had the texture of shoe leather. Have dined here several times. All previous times were very good. Last night was a complete failure by WPG.

    Booth was better than a table, next time we sit at bar. A round table with super loud young women…i did not want to embarrass them but i almost said something to them:-) Order not accurate waiter was gracious. Perhaps if we arrived at 11 on weekend the loud ones have not arrived yet

    Great service, lovely place, great Restaurant Week menu options. The salads were large and creative. I had the pork chop which was wonderfully prepared, tasty smashed potatoes, and a lovely petite syrah. My boyfriend has the stuffed chicken breast and loved it. Also had really great side of roasted potatoes. We both had tiramisu, with was just right. Great dinner!

    Washington Park Grille is a great neighborhood restaurant - small, comfortable, not ostentatious. The menu offerings for restaurant week were excellent. Of course, we upgraded two items and ordered wine, so our tab was way more than the pre-set price. Would recommend this eatery to others.

    Seated promptly on a 5:30 Tuesday reservation during Restaurant Week. Enjoyed the salad course. Bolongese was well prepared, but, the grilled Trout serving was small and overcooked. Polenta accompanying the trout was crunchy. The strawberry cake was tasty, but I was surprised by the amount of whipped cream layered in it...more like a torte. Service was good. With one glass of wine each and our total tab with tax, tip, and kitchen fee hit $100. On street parking within a block was easy on a Tuesday.

    Excellent food and service as usual. Really appreciate the arrangements my server made for me at my request. The Denver restaurant week becomes more of a joke though... Portions are so small that there is no way you can actually get even half-full off the pre-built menu. But I don't blame restaurants for that - inflation was crazy. It's probably time to double the price for it so that the establishments can offer something reasonable. With that said the food was still delicious!

    I love this restaurant. This was my second visit and the food was fresh and tasty. We went with two friends and enjoyed cocktails, wine. The food is locally sourced and they say no hormones or antibiotics are used in meats so that’s important to me. I need to find out if the produce is organic, I don’t want any pesticides. Nice ambiance and music Thurs, Friday and Saturday not sure about Saturday. Yummy food and lively atmosphere.

    Not a 4-star rating -- if I could give a half of a star, it would be a 4.5. This is a wonderful little neighborhood place. The food was spot-on for all of us - nicely cooked & seasoned, beautifully plated & served. The servers did a great job in working around a beer tap issue at the bar, and the bartender mixed a solid Manhattan. My only complaint - and it isn't even really a complaint: the music shifted from quiet jazz to more raucous pop in the middle of dinner, which is fine, but it makes conversation a little more difficult, especially when seated close to another table and with one of our number being elderly. Would 100% recommend Washington Park Grille to everyone.

    Brunch on Sunday, Feb. 19: Four diners, one enjoyed their salad, the burger was OK, but both Benedicts were poor quality. The regular Benedict was not good and my crab Benedict was really bad. Had I been blindfolded I would not have recognized it as crab. The crab had a strange brown color, the eggs had a weird orange colored streaks on it, the underlying ciabatta bread very soggy. My fruit cup looked as if it had been cut the previous week. Very disappointing.

    Unfortunately, not a great experience. When we first walked in, we had a reservation but were told that they were a bit behind so we waited about 15 minutes for our table. While we were waiting we saw a couple leave and complain they were leaving because they hadn’t gotten served any food in an hour. When we were ready to be seated we were told the kitchen was behind about 30 minutes. (It would’ve been nice to know that when we first walked in while waiting for our table.) Once we sat down, the food actually wasn’t really delayed. We did have one drink that didn’t taste very good. When we asked for something different we were told that the original drink could not be comped because the manager had said they had already comped too much for the night for other customers (keep in mind it was literally 7:30pm so not even late). Kind of frustrating that because the food/drinks were not being made well that night and so many people had been comped, we ended up paying for a drink we didn’t like nor drank. Food and service was average otherwise. Likely will not come back.

Let me rewind and mention the Hostess stand, what a remarkable group of young ladies! Kind, engaging, and genuinely warm! Dinner was amazing, we all loved it, my rare tuna entree was the best I’ve ever had. So big props! Super happy spending when it is worth it- ITS WORTH IT

    WPG has gone way downhill in the last six months. The brunch buffet is gone and it’s been replaced with a lackluster menu and mediocre food. We won’t be returning.
