    The $23.00 buffalo burger was overcooked, despite the server verifying my request before she left the table with our orders. Ironically, the cheese was not melted, and the bun was dry and flavorless. The bacon was extremely overcooked, to the extent it was tasteless. Washington Park Grill does not hand cut their potatoes for frying , choosing to order frozen fries instead.

    We miss the weekly Sunday buffet brunch that they had prior to Covid so we took advantage of the special Easter offering. Everything was delicious (and as my bathroom scale told me the next day, I tried a lot). Service was very good and we were very happy to have gone. I don’t like the mandatory fees springing up, something that has been settled with hotel chains but now restaurants need a correction. Let me decide who and how much to tip, usually 22-25% or build it into the price. Not limited to Wash Park Grille and everything else was really great.

    The WPG always has a lunch menu that pleases. I have my favorites: French Onion Soup, Angus Burger, Lobster Club, Cobb Salad . . . ANY of the pastas . . . . Service is always great, and I've never felt rushed to get out at a certain time. My friends and I always enjoy the atmosphere, our food, and our time to catch up with conversation at The Wash Park Grille.

    Wash Park Grille always serves a good meal. Our salads were delicious as were the sweet potato fries. The Reuben was very yummy, but there was a small piece of the meat that was hard to bite through and chew. Definitely a place to which we will return.

    Dining here is pleasurable. The daily specials are spectacular. Service is spot on. One recommendation to consider: We dined on this past Sunday evening with a pianist as a new feature. The pianist had a great voice and talent but a bit too loud for a dining room. The microphone was not necessary for the acoustics in the dining room. Music in a dining room should be played in the background. *please move the piano in the lounge area* Otherwise, entrees and service were excellent!

    Sat us 30 min late even though we had a reservation. Did not try to accommodate us by stating there at least was an area to sit and drink while we waited. Ordered drinks appetizers food they brought the food before the appetizers and the hostess was a little beat with an attitude. Should do a better job of working with your clientele when it’s your fault

    The Crab Benedict was not cooked properly per request. The grapefruit mimosa had no fizz. We were seated close to an outside door so several of us wore our coats through the meal. We had heard brunch was exceptional but will not be returning. Over priced brunch for what we got.
