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.

    Normally love washboard grill, but disappointed this time I ordered chicken piccata, and there was a pork inside the chicken. Complete surprise. The dish was not interesting chicken was dry and chewy. I had to order a small piece of grilled chicken without any pork separately.

    Our server, Allison, was phenomenal and patient with our group of 5 older ladies. She was attentive, and helped with suggestions for drinks. She gave us plenty of time to decide on our entrees and was very friendly. She did a great job offering to divide the bill accurately 5 ways. Please thank her for being so kind and patient with us as we spent time catching up after the busy holidays.

    It was a nice experience! Loved the food. Jasmine rice wasn’t quite jasmine rice, a bit disappointed that they used what seemed like boil in a bag rice. But the ahi tuna was incredible and the drinks were good.

    Mediocre experience. Went there for an early NYE dinner. Ambience very much felt like a bar and grill type of place, but the menu attempted to be elevated. Our server was fantastic, but the kitchen must have been extremely behind. We waited for almost an hour and a half before we ever got our meal. I ordered the lobster pasta which was ok. I think there were more tomato chunks than actual lobster. Boyfriend ordered the pork chop and it was one of the toughest pieces of meat either of us have had. Not cooked well at all. For the price points that they are charging, we expected more and were very disappointed. The value was not worth the cost. Didn’t hate it, but won’t be going back anytime soon.

    We hadn't been to Wash Park Grille in a couple of years and were very impressed with the food and the service. Everything we ordered was excellent - the porcini pappardelle bolognese, Italian campanele, New York strip steak, and wasabi seared tuna entrée. Our waitress was attentive and friendly and our cocktails were all mixed well. We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and are planning a return visit very soon!

    A very busy Saturday night but they were able to accommodate our request for a somewhat quiet table. Service was excellent. Food was good except our two Caesar salads were wilted and no sign of mini Gem lettuce, which I buy regularly. Maybe it was chopped too much and sat in dressing too long. Would only order it again with dressing on the side. Other than that, we had a very nice evening.

    Fried calamari was over fried and chewy. NY strip steak was not juicy enough and placed on the mash potatoes which makes it mushy and it was also too salty. Lobster whatever special dish is also way too salty. The waitress barely understood English. The bill came with food+drinks+3% kitchen whatever fee+tax and when you leave 15% on the top the manager comes to your table, pulls a chair, sits with you (without asking) then starts -very loudly so other tables can hear- yelling at you what was wrong so you left 15% tip etc. to embarrass you. Such a s bad experience! Food is not better than a sports bar food. Service sucks! Manager don’t have manners! Also, why should I tip 20%+ on the top of existing 3% kitchen whatever fee(!) and state sales tax! Also, make sure to check your credit card statement few days later, just in case.

    5:30pm reservation on a Friday. The table wait staff throughout were professional and very pleasant. Service was marred however by delays in delivering ordered cocktails and the wine wasn’t served until dinner entrees were nearly finished. One of the cocktails was served in a glass with lipstick on it . That guest took a few sips and then noticed that the glass wasn’t clean. That guest does not wear lipstick. The wine “pours” were very skimpy. Perhaps the bar staff was lean that night. The short-ribs were overcooked - meat was mushy and the gravy sauce was like pudding.

    Since most restaurants seem to be chains anymore, this is our favorite local restaurant. It’s in a fun location, the menu is varied and the prices are very reasonable. It is a tad noisy but it almost adds to the casual, neighborhood vibe. We’ve been there many times and never left disappointed.
