I arrived with a colleague without a reservation as we'd come into Princeton town from a business meeting just outside. Initially they struggled to find us a table but after we played the "we've come all the way from England" card they found one. We ate inside but there's also an extensive outside terrace area. Food and service were both... More

We frequently dine at Witherspoon; their food is excellent and their service is usually very good; but tonight was an off night for the service. The server was new to us and we may try to avoid them in the future and request one of the servers we have had before. Two of us had a chicken breast special with... More

A noon time arrival on a Monday allowed us a choice of seats and a relaxing meal followed. Attentive server kept a careful watch on our table for three. I had crabcakes which was the perfect size for lunch and among my companions choices was a cob salad (wow!) which looked superb and received accolades. The other diner with us... More

Witherspoon Grill is competently run, no - surprises steak house with a stylish flare. Foodies will be bored, but if you're in the mood for a nice steak or steak salad, it has a great location in central princeton on the nice square by the library. I suggest a nice T-bone followed by a trip across Witherspoon street to the... More

We dined here with our in-laws on a Wednesday evening around 7 o'clock. The restaurant was very crowded and extremely loud. So if you're hoping to have a nice conversation with your dinner companions you might want to sit outside. It was too chilly the evening for us to use that option. Cocktails and food were very good, service friendly... More

We have visited Witherspoon Grill several times over the years & have yet to be disappointed. The food is very good & the service is great. We sat at an outdoor table with an umbrella on a breezy, sunny & warm Spring day. I ordered the sirloin tip sandwich served on an onion roll with an aioli sauce. The steak... More

The staff was excellent and very capable at handling my wife's dietary restrictions. Both our meals were perfectly prepared, I had the filet and my wife had the salmon.
