    The General Warren Inn is always a delight! Excellent drinks, food and service in a very comfortable colonial atmosphere. We especially love it during the Fall and Winter when the fireplaces are blazing. This is our go to restaurant for upscale dining.

    Meeting old friends tonight at the General Warren, as the merry season begins, reminds one of all that remains to be cherished. I met Jen, the gifted bar~tendress and hold, in deep pockets, the highest regard for her 28-year history in service to the "House"; as well as her speed-skating efforts to serve all in a manner, deserving. She is lightning quick in spirit and candor and knows the cocktails, specialities and secret pours of nearly every dear client who crosses the Inn's threshold. Any woman who has been serving society and the Inn's patrons for nearly three decades, deserves accolades beyond an Oscar. It is a tender reveal to witness the humility, grace and humor required to elevate the pillars of such an establishment. Patrick, the extraordinary proprietor, George, lovely host and Jack, the finest server, along with all of the staff, are wonderfully cordial and kind; the experience of dining here evokes iconic pleasures. I must mention the exquisite STEAK FRITES and Rosé offered, soothed my senses and reduced my levels of stress from a roar to a gentle purr. I shall be returning again and again for rejuvenation of spirit and spark to keep Winter's shadow distant.

    We had a wonderful time at the GWI! The only issue was the clash of the two forms of music being played at the same time. We sat at a table just inside the entrance to the main dining room - the live guitar being played in the bar area competed with the holiday tunes coming from the speakers in the dining room… I suggest one or the other :), not both.

    The waiter was excellent , he was very courteous and accommodating. The ambiance does not disappoint and I like the fact it is quiet unlike other restaurants. The food was very good but there was a disconnect on portions some people didn’t much or any of certain things. Most of us ordered the turkey dinner. There was a disconnect with consistency. Overall very enjoyable. Thank you.

    The bistro steak was delicious, as was the Cabernet. The service was excellent. I had a great experience with my husband and parents there. My mom was a little disturbed by the sort of loud table nearby. There was plenty of room around the restaurant but for some reason all the guests were seated in the same area. That’s my only complaint.

    General Warren Inn is an old friend that gets better with age. Everything about last evening's dinner was handled perfectly (even the medium-rare Beef Wellington). Happily, the Inn had a robust group of diners spread across the spacious yet intimate dining rooms.

It did not need the tampenade atop, good just alone. I look forward to their Franklin Mint after dinner drink each time I visit. Gwen wat most attentive and pleasant as always!

    Overall great place with a very affordable dinner package for overnight guests. $95 for 3 courses from the full menu. Catherine whom we met at arrival was inviting including offering us an upgrade to our room at no additional cost. Please remember crème brûlée needs carmelized sugar on top! Otherwise it simply a bowl of custard.

    We were greeted with a happy anniversary after providing our name, were quickly seated in a quiet part of the restaurant which works for me as I'm hard of hearing. The waiter took our order and promptly returned with our drinks. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the soft music playing in the background was just loud enough to hear but quiet enough so when talking you didn't have to compete.

    We had a lovely dinner. I thought the choices were very good and while I chose and very much enjoyed my Wellington, everything looked very good. I have to say, the service was excellent. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. The only thing I think they need to address are the mixed drinks. The ice melts very quickly and dilutes the otherwise flavorful drink. A better ice makers would be beneficial.
