Being relatively new to the area, this was our first time at General Warren. We were thrilled to have an evening with a quiet ambience and very good food. Will definitely return very soon.

Wonderful food and lovely service- outdoor space is great.
Only negative is the staff was smoking on the other side of the fence. Cigars and cigarettes and it kept wafting into the area out back making it nauseating at times.
Would encourage your staff to not smoke or smoke elsewhere

We enjoyed a delicious Easter dinner in the front tent. Service was attentive and the pace was relaxed. The General Warren had obviously appropriately staggered the reservations to avoid a frenzy atmosphere on this busy day. This restaurant never fails to serve a wonderful experience and superb meal.

We had a delightful table and an outstanding server. The filet was perfect. Although the crab/risotto dish was a bit too spicy for me, I think the problem was my low tolerance rather than a chef problem. The desserts were outstanding. We enjoyed every last crumb.

This restaurant goes back to before the Revolutionary War, and its ambiance reflects that. Plus the food and its preparation are indicative of that era. The food and presentation are excellent. Drinks are cold. wine selection is excellent and not too expensive. In a time when fine dining is not in vogue, for those who love it, the General Warren does it best. We have been going there for almost 50 years and still love it. The clientele covers all ages, and everyone has a good time. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, friendly and conversational without being intrusive - the perfect blend.

You will love it.

Eat outside in the back for most authentic experience. Then, relax on the bench afterwards to enjoy the stars.

We haven't been @ General Warren for quite some time and we were nicely surprised. This is beautiful restaurant with rich history and settled in beautiful park-like place. There were 6 of us and we had a wonderful time. The restaurant took all the COVID precautions, tables were pushed apart and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. The menu is interesting, we all ordered different things and everyone was extremely satisfied. The service (Gwen was our waiter) and ambience was additional plus. We will definitely be back sooner.

Food was nothing special; ambiance was mediocre. Outdoor dining in the bar area is very casual and not too special. May not return.

Somethings just weren't as good as we have had in the past. Limited menu did not have a lot of dinner choices. Probably due to covid but we'll give it another chance later in the year.

Food and service were excellent. Probably would’ve enjoyed sitting outside more but the forecast was cold so opted for indoor and just a little formal for me.

Historic Inn (1745) with fine dining, comfortable surroundings and an outstanding staff of servers, and hospitality personnel. Well suited for outdoor dining, and the inside dining is also spacious and airy. We go there for a few days of getting away from the city and enjoying the countryside.

The General Warren never disappoints. The food and ambience are always fabulous. Our Server Nancy, who we have had on other occasions, is a delight. Nancy is a true professional and makes dining at the General Warren the icing on the cake.

There were only two other couples there when we arrived. We were the last to leave but Gwen, our waitress, did not in any way rush us. She had to be dying to get out of there. It was a great night and a birthday surprise for a friend.
