Kirwan’s on the Wharf: what do users think?


Abhinav: Food: 3/5 Ambience:4/5 Service: 3.5 /5 The patio of this place on the wharf is pretty cool. We went there just because of that. The food was very mediocre for the prices they charge. We went around 9:15am, we had to ask for the menu twice, ask the waiter to bring cutlet after food was served. We were give only one menu card for a table of three. I guess the waiter was tired for the day but nevertheless expected better than that.

Kyle D: Cool place at the Wharf. Nice atmosphere, however the food was just okay. I’ve had better fish and chips before (the breading fell off the fish and didn’t seem to be seasoned as well as it could). The crab cake appetizer was very good, however.

Travis Alvarado: Service was good and location wasn't bad at all with seating outside, indoors on two floors. Lighting on the inside was a little dark for my taste after the sun went down. The food was great. The Flat Bread Pizza, and Fish and Chips seemed to be what everyone was getting besides all the drinks. Overall I enjoyed it and would go back again for the food and staff.

Antoinette Levon: Service was good. Cocktails were tasty. Food was ok. The Mushroom Soup was really good. But the Caesar Salad lacked dressing and some of the lettuce was brown and old. The gnocchi and squash dish was ok as well. The Pot Pie tasted like it needed something. was a bit bland. Overall it will do if you are hungry and want a drink before our concert. Next time we will try somewhere else.

* dnainsb: Really nice Irish pub located directly on the wharf. It has covered outdoor seating that it is beautiful. The food is classic English pub food. For example Shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, fish and chips, the menu is quite large if English pub food is not what you're looking for. There's a lot of alternatives. It's a really great place right on the wharf.

Paul LaVigne: Kirwans on the wharf is located right at the waterfront and is a good place to go if you have a hankering for Irish pub food. The location is excellent, and the interior is decorated very nicely, but the back room Bar area was exceedingly warm. That would be ok on a cool evening, however it was 90+ degrees when we went in and they’re looking to get relief from the heat. The bartender/waitress who served us was very nice and did a great job of making us feel comfortable. The food was superb as well. I had the bacon and cabbage meal which consisted of pork loin, bacon, cabbage and I opted for the sweet potato fries. It was one of the best pub meals I’ve had. My wife had the lamb burger with colcannon mash. She said it was the best burger and mashed potato dish she’s ever had.

catch_hug: Great for beers and a quick bite. Waiters seem all very good trained and attentive. Food was spiced dezent and authentically, even though the tuna poke (wich btw is not what you are serving) was way too much sesame. Local craft beers on tap, try the sour.

Sam D: Stopped here to avoid the humid day. Great atmosphere and cool a/c. I grabbed a Chicken Pot Pie and it was the best crispy crust and chicken was on point. Highly recommend 10/10

Elizabeth T.: We stopped in here for a few drinks after a free concert and we’re happy with the prices considering the area. We stayed for a few appetizers and I honestly wasn’t that impressed. It did it’s job with curbing my hunger but it was enough for us to choose to go somewhere else for dinner. They sat us quickly and the waitress was very attentive to our needs and brought out the food quickly.

Thao Huynh: Great views and service! The seafood tasted fresh, but it just felt like it needed some more flavor. The drinks were honestly not that great but they look good. Bathrooms look cool but there needs to be more light. For the prices, food quality could have been better, but our server was amazing.

The Brighton: what do users think?


Kelly Hyer: Different take on food and drinks! Open seating, order everything at the bar. Pay ahead. You get a table # and food brought out to you. I hand a house made summer shandy and it was delicious. Kids liked their fish+chips and chicken tenders. My veggie burger was fab as well.

Brandon DePalo: Good food, great service, good atmosphere. We stopped here for lunch and drinks. The drinks were good (a bit weak, but tasty). Food was good. I had the chicken curry and it was great, and a perfect portion for lunch. My wife had the fish and chips and there was only 2 little fish pieces. Prices are typical for DC, expensive.
Response: Thanks for the feedback Brandon! We will definitely let our chef know about the portions on the fish n chips.

Malcolm Rouse - West: With incredible lighting the Brighton is the perfect place for a meal. The custom blender burger is one of the best burgers I've had in year's. It's juicy with a nice texture and chew. The wings are as delicious as they are beautiful. I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Response: Thanks for the review Malcolm!

Caleb Newman: Cocktails are a bit pricey and the lack of a happy hour is disappointing. Atmosphere is good with a great location for river and people-watching. The crab dip is a must-try and the pairing of naan chips is excellent. Good service and polite staff!
Response: Thanks Caleb!

Chrissie Powell: Yummy food, great music and awesome service. Our bartender, Quinn was amazing—it was packed on St Patty’s Day weekend (Saturday) but he was so attentive and friendly. The hostess was great too. Great vegetarian options!

Mo Love: This was my first time at this restaurant and my last. The server was great, but the food was absolutely horrible. I had the Vegan Burger. The avocados were mushy, the burger was horrible and the lettuce, tomatoes and pickle looked like they had seen better days. My aunt had the Chicken Ceasar and the chicken was dry. We took 2 bites of our food and pushed the plates to the side. I do not recommend this restaurant.
Response: Hi Mo. Thank you for leaving this review. We will definitely let our chefs know about your experience.

Crystal BelleAmie: The only place we found on the Wharf for dine-in eating. The food was par for bar food. We had to order food at the bar and was given a number to take back to the table, then the food was brought to us. Service was lackluster. Bathrooms were almost as hot and steamy as it was outside. Probs won't be back anytime soon.

Joseph Puryear: Great atmosphere and vibe but I waited an hour for my burger which I never ended up getting. I followed up multiple times and was told they'd "look into it and get it for me". Finally gave up after an hour since my whole party had eaten and was just sitting waiting for me.
Response: Hi Joseph! So sorry about your experience! If you would please message us we would love to make it up to you. Thank you for your feedback!

Dimitry Pomika: It was testy, good staff, but after Malbec and ape role shpritz 4 hr vomited… so i dont know what’s going on here?!

Trudy Hall: Sat at the bar after an event at The Anthem. Nice, friendly service. Very loud, very busy. Sitting over looking the water with the garage doors open was a treat. Didn't eat food but beer & cocktails were fine. Young crowd.

Froggy Bottom Pub: what do users think?


Ann Faust: We came here during a quick visit to DC on a Saturday afternoon. The pub food I ordered (Fish & chips) was very nice. Proper fish pieces were hand-battered and fried crisp. One of my kids had the PHÒ and it was unexpectedly wonderful. Simple noodles and meat but the broth were exceptionally good. Moses was the gentleman who served our food. I say he was also a 5-star server, quick, witty and nice. I would definitely like to come back when we are around.
Response: Thank you so much for the great review . We are so glad you had a nice lunch served by Moses . I make sure to let Moses and kitchen staff know about your comment . Hope to see you again in the near future . Best . Hien

M planetmike: At first glance, this looks like any bar/ restaurant in DC. The selections of fried edibles like hot wings, burgers, etc... seems to confirm this. And there is the long bar with Guinness on tap which are also familiar sights in so many other bars. Before you turn to exit to look for a more unique place, or take comfort with it's familiarity, look more closely at their menu. There is a section dedicated to Vietnamese dishes. We tried some and found them delicious! Vietnamese food at Froggy Bottom Pub? These words shouldn't be in the same sentence let alone in the same place. Located at the corner of K Street an 21st Street, this is worth the walk from either GW Metro or Farragut North Metro.

Jessica Martin: Got Pho Froggy to go (go in and ask to order takeout) and it was delicious and fresh. Best part was the kind and considerate service, though. I’d like to go back during their happy hour, since it looks like they have really cool cocktails and I felt a comfortable vibe the time I spent there. Also they clearly mark gluten free (and other allergen) items on their menu, which is always very much appreciated.
Response: Hello Jessica. Thank you so much for great review . I am so glad you enjoyed the Pho and will let my staffs know about your review. Please come for happy hour and I like to meet you. Best. Hien.

Daniel Ruiz-Rossi: Excellent. Really good Chicken Pho. The búfalo wings were fantastic too. It was my first time there. I didn’t feel like drinking tonight but it seems they have really good beers as well. Just give it a try! It’s good.

Cliff Stone: Owners are Vietnamese - two of the nicest and sweetest people you'll ever find. Their little pug was cute too! Traditional food was outstanding. 5-STARS

Cindy Thompson: Variety and quality of food was incredible! We had a great time visiting with the owners while we waited for our food. Service was kind of slow, but they were brand new and she was trying hard! Overall a great experience and we'll be back.

Tina: Unexpected and great place, an odd combination of Vietnamese fair and pub food...everything was delicious. They had a private event when we went but we were able to sit outside, we got Cobb salad, pho and butter pasta (for our little guy). Service was awesome and food was good and reasonably priced. Will definitely go back.
Response: Good afternoon , thank you so much for the great review . We are appreciated your support and understanding . We are glad you had a pleasant time with us and I will certainly let my staff know about your compliment , Hope to see you again . Best . Hien

Joe Weaver: I had the Pho Froggy and it was excellent. Some other members of my party tried traditional tavern fare like cheesesteaks, and it was also great. The place has a nice vibe. The service was fast, friendly, and they got everything right even with a couple of us showing up late. Decent beer selection and good prices for the area. Only minor complaints I would register, and not enough to knock off a star, but I do perceive these reviews as an opportunity to give the owner feedback if they read it, so here goes... 1) the place was slightly warmer than my preference, not egregiously so, but just slightly. We were sitting in the front on a 90 degree day. 2) again, just my preference, but the stools at the high-top tables in the front do not have seat backs. I prefer seat backs for comfort. I would absolutely stop here again if I am in the area.
Response: Thank you for the great review . I’m glad everyone had a good experience with us . I will fix the chair and in-house temperature when you are here . Best . Hien

Francisco Lavorre: Ducked in with the wife for a quick drink and bite as it was the closest place to our hotel that wasn't five-star expensive. Reasonable prices and surprisingly good house beer, wife got a key lime martini that knocked our socks off. Ordered a pizza with low expectations but, again, pleasantly surprised with the depth of flavor. Could've found the same pie for twice the price at a high-end pizzeria. Only thing keeping this hidden gem from five stars was the atmosphere. I don't right much care what music you play in your place of business, as long as it's not blasting; and this was DEAFENING. Not even dancing music, which would've been strange enough in a bar that's obviously not a club, but some kind of electronic alt-folk hybrid. The seconds we had between songs were bliss, and an overworked yet unshakably pleasant server gave us much more time than we needed (outing less than thirty minutes turned into over an hour). If the owners read this, your food and drinks are spot on. Please make it so people dining don't have to yell their conversations.

Katie: My son and I were on a quick trip to DC, and our last meal before leaving the next day was at Froggy Bottom. It was hands down, BY FAR the best meal we had our entire trip in DC. If we had discovered Froggy Bottom when we'd first arrived, we would have visited several times. The first thing my son told my other kids when we got home was about how much we enjoyed our dinner at FB. The owner was there during our dinner, and she was so incredibly sweet. My son is a pretty picky eater, but I convinced him to try my spring roll. He loved it so much that he refused to give the rest of it back. Our server was excellent. We are already planning another trip to DC, and we will certainly be visiting Froggy Bottom when we return!

Across the Pond: what do users think?


Mark Darwin: Low key bar with a great selection of beers on tap. Didn’t try the food, but the options looked good.

Gina Elliott: I had my fathers 60th birthday here. The booking of the event was easy and the menu that was provided was great. The waiters and bartenders were quick and friendly. We had a chance to meet the owner while we were there and he was friendly and appreciative. I Love to support local business and I’m glad to have them in the city.

Amanda Casillas-Gallegos: Delicious Fish and Chips. Thick and great tasting!! Also tried the Cornish beef and macaroni w/cheese. Tried their Mango Beer, my son tried a Guinness and we LOVED IT!! Be careful menu does not show pricing!!

Jessica Flowers: Nice place for a drink in the late afternoon/early evening. I was easily able to get a seat at the bar for a couple of drinks and listen to the guys behind the bar talk about Derry Girls. Still couldn't find anything about season 4, but nice place. I can't believe I never tried it when I lived on Connecticut Ave a few years ago.

Jasmine Kaidbey: Watched the caps game here and will definitely be back. Very friendly and welcoming staff, prompt service, nice game atmosphere. Menu offers lots of options beyond the quality of your average sports bar. Glad to have tried it out!

Joshua Worthey: Great bar with great atmosphere and great food. We descended upon this place this last weekend. They didn't realize the convention was happening but overcame the issues as they piled on. This will be my go to when in DC from now on. Smaller place so not too crazy or loud.

Peter Pellegrino: Across the Pond is an awesome place! Service was spectacular and the food was authentic and out of this world. They always have so many options for sporting events on the tv’s. Their live music is always good and the speaker system sounds amazing.

Patrick Savoia: Came here for F1. Had no race specials and their brunch specials ended at 1pm. The food itself was passable at best and my cheese fries were clearly sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. A table next to us never even get their food after waiting nearly 90 minutes.
Response: Patrick, Thank you for your feedback. You happened to come into Across the Pond under irregular circumstances. We had cook no-show yesterday and by the time we were able to get another cook to come into work, the kitchen already had 25-30 tickets of food orders. Unfortunately, it took most of race for the kitchen to get caught up with orders. We have over 4.5 stars for our food and I’m happy to offer you a discount on your next meal to show you why we have such great reviews for our food. Thank you, ATP managment

Jim Laurenson: An oasis in the storm! Literally, it was storming and I was on my bike, so I Googled the nearest pub and found this excellent pub. Didn't look like much from the outside, but I persevered, found lots of nice people -- both guests and employees -- had a couple of excellent brews, and onion rings to die for!

Rita S: Drinks were inexpensive, fills up quickly when games are on so get there early

Boardwalk Bar & Arcade: what do users think?


Moshi B: Visit this place today and it was decent! I don’t suggest taking your kids here because it’s not much of a selection of games for kids. This is like an adult place to chill maybe off the late night. The menu is Bobby Basic. Hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels, cotton candy and corn dogs. Felt like I was at a carnival. All the drinks are damn near on tap. The best thing was the fish tacos. They were seasoned very well but just wasn’t enough. The serving was for a child. I don’t know their hours but this is like the after after spot. Like if you don’t want the night to end and don’t want to bring them back to your spot.

Hilda Kroll: Opened just a few weeks ago, it's still a work in progress. Everything is shiny and new and the staff is really nice. The food is just okay right now, but very affordable compared to most other restaurants on the waterfront. My Carnival Cuban, however, was really good and spicy and loaded with meat. A good option for those on a budget.

Martin M: Went to check out this new “trendy” bar yesterday and it was just that…..a trend. I do appreciate the idea they went for but I don’t feel it will be sustainable in the high end area. The bar staff was nice and I didn’t try the food because we had dinner prior to coming but it looked fun and carnival like. There is a few games spread out in what looks like they were just trying to fill space. The decor is cute and had lots of TVs which will be great for sports. I know this is just my opinion but with such a beautiful space on the wharf I feel like a better concepts could have been utilized.

Corey R: Not a bad spot to stop in and let the kids entertain themselves. Food menu is basic... so don't plan on getting a good meal here. The corn dogs taste microwaved.... so sorry folks... the basic food isn't even done right. The drinks aren't bad... they have cocktails on tap here. Try the flight if you can't decide which one you want. Just meh.

Carmine Giattino: Cool place to stop by, have a few drinks and play some arcade games. They have a good selection of beers. Friendly staff.

Fredo X: I'm a bit of an arcade conissuer and I'd suggest this place take the arcade part out of their name. The fortune telling machine didn't deliver a fortune. When we got there, the skee ball was being worked on sadly. These aren't the reasons I gave this place 3 stars though. Two of the biggest gripes I had with this place was that most of the cabinets weren't authentic, for example, the 20th anniversary cab for Galaga and Ms Pacman was gutted to be used for a mediocre multicade. The other was that Street Fighter Championship edition was being used instead of the standard Turbo edition. The bar aspect of this place is sweet though, I love the beer menu, and the staff was quick, hospital and efficient, can't say anything for the food though as i didn't try any.

Giuliana Porco: I would highly recommend this location for hosting events. We held a birthday party for roughly 15 people and the venue was perfect. The tables are large enough to provide ample space for mingling. Also, the staff was attentive and took great care of our party. The arcade games were an added bonus, and they were relatively cheap. Great for a casual large group gathering!

Samantha Elizabeth: Boardwalk Bar & Arcade is a beach-theme bar with arcade games located on the Wharf. I came here for a birthday party and we had a table reserved for 20 people. You had to get a game card if you wanted to play games. The claw machines were rigged. I'll admit that ordering from QR code was a bit confusing and it was easy to order on someone's tab within the party. It was nice that they have happy hour on the weekends. Our party enjoyed both food and drinks. The Cotton Candy Collins was rather disappointing as it didn't really taste like cotton candy or was served with cotton candy. My favorite drink was the Nutty Palmer, which consisted of bourbon, peach, lemon, and black tea shaken and served over the rocks. I decided to get the Soft Baked Pretzel and Corn Dog. The Pretzel was served with honey mustard and beer cheese dipping sauces while the Corn Dog was served with honey mustard and ketchup. Between the two food items, I enjoyed the Corn Dog more.

Victoria Nguyen: I've been to the Boardwalk Bar and Arcade a number of times now, and hosted two large socials here. Both events have been a success thanks to the ease in working with the Better Hospitality Group team. They're so accommodating with our needs and requests, and the day-of staff are super nice and friendly, and patient with us. I highly recommend you come here to beat the heat with some fun games and frozen drinks, as well as for any socials or large gatherings you need a venue for.

Leah Frelinghuysen: I hosted a party for 25 people today. The service was terrible. We waited forever for the servers to clear between courses and they were so unhappy to be there. We waited for drinks. Ordering and getting drinks in an expedient manner is so basic. The Sprite tasted like water. Nothing was working at 11am when the restaurant is supposed to open. At 11:45am, the sodas still tasted like water or some fashion of a drink that was nothing like what we ordered. I don't know why they advertise that they accommodate private events when clearly they don't have competent staff to do so. The food is also very average. The corn dogs were disgusting. The batter not fully cooked around the hot dogs. Sugary. Why would anyone go here?

Freddie's Beach Bar: what do users think?


Alfred Jones: Excellent time! Everyone there was friendly and nice, what a wonderful time. The bartender was great - the flashing flamingo is hilarious as a drink and I love it. There is a 24 hour diner right down the way as well for the after drinking munchies so it has a great location.

Jacob Blandford: Very fun bar/restaurant. The food is good and the service is great! Go for a show and enjoy the entertainment. There is a $5 cover but it is worth it.

Sangeeta Rao: Every time I come here I feel at home. So welcomed and so accepted, Freddie’s has been there for me in so many ways I don’t even know where to start. From drag bingo on Wednesday, to weekend brunch, to a happy hour (4-7pm) cocktail with friends after a long week, Freddie’s is there and will never disappoint! This LGBTQ+ and straight friendly bar also has fun karaoke and trivia nights. Everyone who works here is an absolute gem and have great intuition about split checks and orders even when you’re in a big group. I personally enjoy the nachos or fried shrimp and the prince inspired purple rain cocktail. Freddie, the owner, is also an incredible person and pillar of the community. Located not too far from the pentagon, this establishment provided a safe space for all service members and has always provided a fun and inviting environment regardless of lifestyle. He regularly hosts fundraisers and events for student scholarships and local LGBTQ+ support groups like AGLA (Arlington-Alexandria Gay Lesbian Alliance). There is nothing more exhilarating than winning one of the raffle drawings at one of these Freddie’s events, so I highly recommend you check out when the next one is!

Benjamin W.: A fun welcoming place for people of all backgrounds. 5 stars for the atmosphere. Where else can you find drag bingo, karaoke, and a place open until 1:30 am on a Wednesday? I'd say they could improve their mixed drink quality, though they get points for style and the prices are very reasonable for both food and beverages. Maybe a bougie drink of the week with top shelf ingredients? In any case, have a drink or two at Freddie's, save a bit of cash, have some fun. The inside has no shortage of interesting decor as well...

Angella Morrison: Second time visiting and this time around didn’t go so well, we were asked to leave because they needed the table… After driving from NYC FOR my bestie birthday we where disappointed for sure.

Nicolas Davila: Freddie’s is a vibrant and inclusive place, with a great brunch, great prices, and a fantastic friendly staff. Our server James was extremely attentive and friendly, he made us want to keep coming back. They have Karaoke every night which we’ll surely be back to try out after such a good experience.

Gaelle Claude: Such a cute bar!!! Freddie’s Beach Bar has a great ambiance. I actually stumbled upon it while working in Virginia and funny enough they were having an event so I stuck around for that. This is a LGBTQ restaurant — just throwing that out there. On Wednesdays they have Drag Bingo, which is one of the events I was referring to, it was pretty fun. If interested, you need to rsvp a week in advance. The staff there is super nice and friendly. I made it for happy hour too! Lucky day over all lol. I ordered a piña colada and blue cheese burger. The food was good and so was that cocktails.

James Leach: Wow! Had Sunday brunch with my husband, Daughter and our nanny this morning at Freddie’s. Staff was great, food was off the chart and experience was 10/10! The donuts with ham and cheese are a huge hit!!! Thanks for making the day!

Michael: Hands down the best Drag Brunch in the DC/NoVa area. No one can compete with Destiny B Childs! I have seen this show many times, and each time is different! Perfect for a get together or a getaway! Great staff and atmosphere.

William West Hopper (DC Car Guy): Nice spot for a drink or a meal. Not a crazy place very relaxed. More like a neighborhood bar.

The Dubliner Restaurant: what do users think?


H: I have never had a sublime turkey burger until I went here. Half a pound patties on toasted brioche buns with a side of thick cut fries. Great spot to hit a spot for pub food. The fries were a tad overly seasoned for my taste but I was thoroughly impressed by the burger of the day and the bison burger. Okay service. Restaurant is connected to a hotel in the back. Outdoor patio seating available. Nice atmosphere even though music was a bit too loud at times to converse.

Samar Al Kobrossy: Great place! The food is tasty and flavorful. The portions are big. The decoration is amazing. The waiters are attentive and can give you tips on how to navigate your way around the city. You can sit down, relax, and enjoy your food while listening to some beautiful Irish songs.

Kelly Hyer: Great local choice. Fabulous service and really great food. When in an Irish spot, must have the fish and chips. Seasoned fries- yum. Sooo good, highly recommend. Pretzel stix appetizer delish. Nice kids options too 👌 🌭 🍟

Brett Daviau: Breakfast was great. Salmon bagel with all the fixings. Poor server was trying her best to handle the whole shop by herself. Hope she can get some help. Delicious.

Thomas Suckow: The Monte Cristo sandwich was very delicious, the waitress said it was her mother's favorite and I can understand why. The meat was tender and cut easily with a fork despite the number of layers. Corn beef and hash was the best my wife ever had.

Bobbi DeAnda: AMAZING SERVICE!!! Food was ok, but the service was amazing. So friendly. So fast. So responsive. I actually left my sunglasses and someone ran them out to me!!! The French fries are AMAZINGGGGGG, but the rest of the food was just ok. Fish and chips, fish ok. Burger, ehh. I ordered the burger medium and it was well done. Probably a great spot for drinks and snacks, but wouldn’t go for lunch again. For drinks and French fries, YES!

Edward O'Beirne: Decent menu, good quality food, worth going again. Service was lackluster, possibly an element of understaffed but the place was nearly empty on a Friday afternoon 1pm. Greek salad with salmon was enjoyed. Philly cheesesteak about average. Cold beers. Nice outdoor seating view. Not first choice but would return.

Yvonne: From out of town and the Dubliner was our choice for dinner one night as it was close to our hotel. The service was meh, the place was quaint. The menu is small; however fish & chips were an option, I asked the waiter for his opinion between that and the Irish beef stew. He immediately said fish & chips. Three small strips of dry fish lightly breaded and lacking flavor, at least the fries were good, as was the pickle. I couldn't imagine what the stew was like if the fish was a better option. The salmon pastrami was said to be "ok" by my hubby. For the price of the food and the quality, it wasn't worth it to us, as we have enjoyed Irish pubs and this place doesn't hold a candle to any of them.

craig mossinger: This is an absolute must for lunch! Service is quick and friendly! Fish n chips and the Irish Rueben are phenomenal.

Steve Meier: Great place, and of course what do you order at an Irish Resturant? Fish & Chips and it was probably the best I have ever had. Some of my coworkers were Shepherd Pie fans and a couple others were more traditional and had a Chicken Sandwich. The common theme was everyone was happy with their meal.

Marshall's Bar & Grille: what do users think?


Thomas G: Cool local bar with a good vibe. A few TVs with sports games. Friendly staff.

Joe Joemer: Excellent prices, a fantastic environment, and a truly unique bartender. That kind of service is unavailable anywhere.

Nathan Hunt: Slow but the bartender was very welcoming and awesome. Good place to hangout. Great place to have meetings and socialize. Look for James...

Jonathan Ferguson: Head a great time here with friends on our last night in DC. Awesome service by James!

CHRISTOPHER CHEN: Don't visit the bar unless you know Keith. Keith is considered one of the last great social bar keepers. His conversation, wit, and worldliness makes him a great asset. Also the Indian food is fabulous.

Stefano Annoscia: Great prices, amazing atmosphere, and the bartender is one of a kind. You don’t get that type of service anywhere else.

Georgij Alekseev: Great place! Great prices! Try it out
Response: Glad you had a great time!

Kyle Hood: Love this place as always. It's the best neighborhood bar. They have a special beer all night (just ask) and extremely reasonable prices for DC. You dont have to work hard to befriend the crowd. Good music and cool bartenders (Faruk, James and Richard) will help you out.

Behind the Bar with JR: Best local dive bar in Foggy Bottom/Georgetown. Bartenders are funny and personable, patrons are chill, sports are always on, great indian food + fried food.
Response: Thanks JR! That's what we try to be!

Christian Adams: It's okay for a last-minute thing. Just be aware he only will allow one person's card to be on tap and won't split the bill.

The Pub & The People: what do users think?


Ethan Z: Great Restaurant!! This Restaurant is in the city area and offers indoor and outside seating!! The menu is rather small but the food and drinks were great!! The wait staff were friendly and professional!! The restaurant was also clean and well presented. The bathrooms are coolly decorated too with people sending pictures in of there family pets in to be featured on the wall. Overall great!

Becky Gomez: Such a great spot for a lonely, taveling vegetarian! 😂 Bar service was superb and a delightful vibe. Great beer selection. Perfect shishitos 🌶️ and tempura cauliflower!

AJ Hendricks: Pub and the People is our favorite outdoor spot in Bloomingdale. The beers they have on tap are great, and the food (specifically, the Black Bean burger and "The Heidi" Fried Chicken sandwich) is very solid. The tempura cauliflower sauce is also amazing. Matt, the manager, is very friendly and just a welcoming face to see when you come in. This radiates through the whole staff. The happy hour specials are awesome, and run for most of the day on the weekends. Enjoy!

Parker Kelley: Very great experience here ! We’ve passed this place numerous times and I’ve always said I wanted to try it. So, we finally did ! I ordered the Heidi chicken sandwich which was very tasteful. It came with a side of fries which were also very good. The service was great - 3 or 4 people continuously came to check on us. I’d definitely eat here again.

Bobbi DeAnda: Such a great brunch spot! The outdoor patio is pup friendly (and the bathroom inside is a must see for dog lovers haha). The biscuits and gravy with fried chicken was TO DIE FOR. So yummy! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

Callum Wayman: A great local pub for people in Eckington and Bloomingdale. The pub offers a great selection of beers, wine, and cocktails as well as an excellent food menu (try the tempura cauliflower, chicken sandwich, and the fries). In the winter they offer group seating around large fire pits for small gatherings. I found that to be a huge boon when trying to gather friends outdoors while being mindful of COVID during the winter. The staff are nice and helpful.

Amy Burdon: Had dinner and played trivia - food menu was fairly short but with lots of tasty items - I enjoyed the curry wings and gazpacho. Staff were friendly, happy hour drinks were a good deal. All positives!

India Lindsay: Very friendly, cute neighborhood joint. Food and drinks are all pretty good. The wait staff are so friendly and laid back. It's a great spot for a casual drink after work or meeting up with a few friends in an easy-going atmosphere

Daniel Albert: Not sure what happened to this place. The drinks we got were fine, but the food was pretty subpar. Got the Cuban sandwich and the fries that came with it were way too peppered and salty. The food used to be great here. The vibe is still good - cozy and perfect for winter time.

Sanderson Tattersall: OK, I've reviewed a lot of restaurants, and this one was a chance encounter. Trip to DC, Air BNB nearby, popped in on our last night. Very cool decor, loved the shelving behind the bar with the books and booze mixed, industrial chic. Waitress was great, bartender was great, food was even better. My family of four all got different burgers and sandwiches and all were fantastic. Taps were pretty stellar and they had my favorite Great Lakes Brewing Co. beer, the Elliot Ness. My only regret is not actually living in the area so I can go back. TLDR definitely recommended. Get your A in here.

Union Pub: what do users think?


Jameelah Lewis: So I came all the way from Vegas to have a great time with friends, and we made plans to eat at union pub. The atmosphere was nice, but unfortunately the dining experience differed. We had a party of 8 and they couldn't get anyone's order to the right place and they forgot to bring out requested items. This is not a fan fave and I recommend that you save your coins if you can or try something else!!!

Nickie Bishop: It’s a nice place to stop as there a great patio area and it’s close to activities. We got there on a Saturday when it opened so the service was fine. The food was disappointing. Ordered from the brunch menu - the cheesy French toast was terrible! Flavorless, crusty, cold and barely any cheese. Otherwise the menu was the usual bar food which seemed fine. Hubby had the burger and said it was “OK”. We were here a few years ago on a week day and it had a great lunchtime vibe!

Alexis Green: I ordered buffalo wings and sweet potato fries for pickup. It took about 15-20 minutes. I get there, and they tell me they're out of sweet potatoe fries. So they gave me regular fries instead. I was okay with that. However, when I checked my food, I saw they gave me barbecue wings. They took the food back to the kitchen, came back 2 minutes later and said my order was fixed. I check the food, and the "buffalo" wings looked really dark. The chicken looked different from before, but lighting made it hard to really tell. After coming home to better lighting, and taking a bite, I realized they really did toss the barbecue wings in buffalo sauce. Even the fries still had barbecue residue on them. I may have gotten my money back, but that was a lot time wasted on disappointment.

Richard Mahaffey: Another very nice venue and very popular happy hour gathering place. Patriots are very friendly and happy. Also employees appear to be happy and seem to love their job and the people that come there...

Alex Lafond: Came here alone one night after work for a beer and food, entered through the patio where the was a sign that said "wait here to be seated". So I did. I sat there for 10 minutes while the bartender walked past me 5 or 6 times before acknowledging I was there. When he did, his first words to me were "Can I help you?" in a snotty tone. I replied yeah sign says wait to be sat, and he rolled his eyes and said "Sit wherever you want". Waitress only came over after 10 minutes to take food and drink order. After everything came out, only saw her again when she said, "Would you like the check?". Only reason this review is getting a 2 star and not 1 is because the food was actually ok and not absolute trash. During my time, the bartender just openly complained about anything and everything and was just not an over all pleasant person. I have been back one time since, didn't get any attitude, but service was slow as hell. Likely won't be coming back unless I have no other option or am really hungry and dont want to wait.

Ren Jax: Any place with sweet potato fries is already thumbs up for me. Aside from that, the staff was present, and friendly. The food was seasoned just right, and I loved the portions served. We sat on the patio around lunchtime, which looked like it was used for extra storage space in some sections. A little crowded, the tables and chairs could probably be arranged to better utilize the space, or just use less of them in the space.

Gus Nordhielm: Unbelievably aggressive and condescending manager. She spoke to my partner in an incredibly demeaning manner and refused us service when I asked her not to speak to us that way.

Xenon Booth: Great outdoor space for those not ready for indoor mingling yet. Remember to pack your proof of vaccination and photo ID (not on phone). Drinks are reasonably priced though service was a little slow.

Emily Smith: Definitely check out Union Pub! The bartenders were so sweet and the food was just awesome. Really great atmosphere both outside and in the back at the bar. Check it out asap!

Jason Dubar: We were in the area and needed to escape the heat and find a nice drink to cool off with. So, finding good reviews for Union Pub, we decided to give it a try. I ordered a local beer and my fiance wanted one of their mixed drinks they offer - they were out of the ingredients. Ok, no problem. She ordered a different mixed drink - nope, out of those too. Feeling defeated, she ordered a beer, which the bartender said was good...it was not, but it helped beat the heat. We did not try their food, which must be good, as there was a good sized crowd seated outside.

Public Bar Live: what do users think?


Alexandra Spataro: This place is so fun and lots of different beverages to pick from! Going during the day Saturday was a good choice! It seemed like a couple events were going on where people were celebrating something and getting bottle service so that made the place have even more energy (bubbles, signs every couple of minutes, DJ, beach ball thrown, etc). Only con is that the rooftop deck is not stiletto friendly, ladies you WILL get your heel stuck between the planks; you have been warned. Cheers!

Aziza Nabila: Love this bar! We had so much fun on the rooftop on Saturday. It’s definitely a vibe and one of the BEST HOT SPOTS in the city. The staff was so friendly and service was great! Get a VIP table so you don’t have to wait in line. The bottle girls are the best and know how to party. Tables sell out super quick so reserve them early or they’ll put you on their waiting list.

JW: Empty dance floor inside and bouncer at the door was rude - required individual masks for each party despite NO ONE having masks on inside. Place had an empty dance floor on Saturday night (10-11 pm). We went to Mayflower instead and had a much better time. Get some new bouncers if you want to have any business.

Erick Gonzalez: Great venue with a small yet pleasant rooftop. The music is excellent and was played at the right volume. The bartenders and the staff were very polite. I would say that it's growing as one of my favorite spots in the area for taking out friends and enjoying a night out.

Shannon Clark: My mom and I enjoyed a night out on the Rooftop while my daughter attended a local concert. Everyone was so polite and friendly. The bartenders were awesome and so was the female security guard that helped me to safely escort my mom down the stairs. The music kept us dancing and the wings were delicious. We were only in town for the weekend from North Carolina, but if we come back I'd like to turn-up again at Public Bar Live!
Response: Thank you for the lovely review Shannon. We hope to see you all again soon.

Diana Bermudez: Good place for games but gets super, super packed. Try to reserve a table if you can.
Response: Thank you for your review Diana and we would like set you up with a table for all your needs thought the night. If that’s not something you’re interested in we would love your input on what you’re more interested in. DM us for more.

nohemi garcia: Been there on Sunday , mix music.🎶 not a big place. But you can Dance and have fun. Prices on drinks are fair enough. 🍸 bartenders working hard there and provide great service.

Lisa M: Got completely scammed by this place and our whole friend group got robbed while inside the club. We got a VIP table and it was not worth it at all. Would never recommend this place to anyone. Music was mediocre and there were way too many people to do anything but stand still. There are much better places to go in dc. This was our first time going and it will definitely be the last. We ordered some bottles then immediately got kicked out and they let tons of random people in our sections. This place SUCKSSSSSSS.

Omar Hamad: This is a fraudulent establishment. To say they have a lack of internal coordination and customer service would be generous. They need an organizational facelift with new and somewhat competent management who can at least give the appearance of relatively caring about their customers. Do yourself a favor and take your business elsewhere.

Juan Varela: Music and vibes are incredible. One of the best spots to party in DC. Lee and Mariah are two of the best I’ve met in the hospitality industry in any city! Wish there were more places like this in DC and more people at bars and clubs like Lee and Mariah!!

Clare & Don's Beach Shack: what do users think?


Mischa: Interesting beach-themed restaurant with very nice and interesting decor. The food was okay (had the alligator tail), but was a bit pricey for what it was. The beer selection was okay, too, but could be better. Fairly decent place overall.

Jessa 4Peace: Had dinner there yesterday evening. The weather was great so the fact that they had so much shaded outdoor space to dine was wonderful. We enjoyed the live music as well. Really added to the fun, laid back ambiance. Our food was tasty and very fresh. The menu had lots of options! I am giving 4 stars rather than 5 because you pay extra for guacamole and sour cream...which is fine except that it was too small a portion for the tacos I ordered. I also had 2 cocktails ($10 a pop) and they were very light on the liquor. Other than that, I really enjoyed my experience and will definitely visit again!

delma trevino: Whole Ocean plate, Admiral's feast, fish and chips plate. We're delicious! Just a little hotter on temp on the admirals plate would be nice. Service was great! Visiting from San Antonio first time eating there will definitely go back!
Response: Thanks Delma! Those gulf shrimp are probably the same ones you eat in TX!

Maddy A: Decent food but nice ambience! For a seafood place the seafood is not the best - the fish was dry, the shrimp was okay, and the oysters were just bad (definitely don’t order them). But it’s in northern VA and the prices are equivalent to an actual beach shack so you can’t expect more. However, the place has a nice environment and reminds you of being at the beach! Great for being outdoors and having drinks with friends. Also the hush puppies and fried Oreos (not on the menu) are amazing! Fun place to go to but counterintuitively I would not order seafood here.

P S: What an awesome place! We live 10 min away, and had never been. Delicious food and even better service. Not pictured are the hush puppies which were delicious!!! Can't wait to return! Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon!

Chris Sheft: Great hang out, Fair beer selection with some local choices and good food, entertainment. Loki, casual.

Kelly T: been a couple times. food has always been decent. drinks and ice cream are great! seems like this time they were short staffed, but I also hear COVID is running thru the service industry- so be patient!!!
Response: Kelly... true that! Thank you for being patient. We're still trying to catch up a bit, but I think our team is up to the task!!

Barb Bee: What a fun place! I felt like I was a kid in the late 60's again. I would have given only 4 stars because the parking is challenging...but, their veggies chili was so delicious, I added back the star 😁
Response: Thanks Barb! See ya soon! Sorry about the parking. The construction is rough! However, I've been telling people to go straight to the Kaiser Lot. It's right across the street and always has a space!

Kat Fred: The atmosphere is really fun and I bet it’s even more so with the live music! Unfortunately my blackened mahi-mahi was chewy instead of flaky and the side salad with the house lime dressing was not very good at all. The lettuce was cut so thinly & there weren’t any other veggies to speak of in it. Service was friendly and quick, so though the food was lacking it was still a neat place to hangout for drinks.

mark tactay: Attentive friendly staff serving surf and turf meals or bites, on open air tables under tent, the sky or cool dining area. Nice view above Broad St Falls Chrich.
Response: Lol. That view is short lived, but we'll take it while we have it!!

Tiki On 18th: what do users think?


Jared Cortes: This place was amazing! Service was outstanding. Victor was our waiter and he did a great job! Food came fast and was very good. We ordered a couple of drinks and all of them were good!! You will see some reviews saying this is bar food or it's expensive. They are wrong. You definitely get what pay for. Tip is 20% and is already included. This place is a must if you are in DC!

Wesley “djweso” Oman: We had a great experience here. Fantastic service. Bartender and wait staff were excellent. Drinks were tasty and so was the food. The drinks menu is interesting and has lots of information on it, a mix of newer and classic tiki cocktails plus it changes seasonally. Food is Filipino and has some unique takes plus you can order from the sports bar downstairs. The decor is modern and tropical.

Ed: Came for a frozen drink but I was really surprised by the food, it was delicious. The pina colada was pretty good too although small. Overall good experience! Would deff try again on an evening. Make sure you have a reservation for rooftop seating.

byron subero: Tiki and Filipino mix with awesome drinks. Ube waffle with chicken. Oh and you can buy the special glass!

Aaron Ardillo: Just stopped in for drinks and a small plate with my girlfriend. We got the Zombie and the Bolo cocktails and the pork lumpia for a snack. Best lumpia I have ever had. Bartender was super friendly and attentive as well!

Nino Arobelidze: Such a cute spot in D.C. if you’re there during the cold months, try out their holiday and winter specific drinks like Paw Paw’s Cocoa (served hot -Bourbon, Cocoa Powder and Tiki Coco Loco). Very photographable

A Rivera: Very satisfying. Not a lot of authentic Filipino food around, but felt like I was in Manila with Tiki on 18th. Might come up as pricey, but I’ll say not everyday you find good Filipino food in DMV so it’s worth a penny. xo

Nathan Santos: Busy night life when I went. Slightly on the pricier side however that I can understand comes from the area which they are in. I had a Mai Tai and their Java bowl (Pork) both were very good. Not necessarily a MUST VISIT however it is definitely one of my favorite Filipino restaurants in the DC area. I expect myself to eat here again in the future.

Nikolas G: What a fun bar. Loved the outdoor area, the tropical drinks were fun and the decor on the inside is very fun while some how being classy. Strong recommend for the pork lumpia, the tenders are ok, and the punch bowls get a decent recommend. Our server Jasmin was so friendly and smiley and I really made our night.

leonard sims: So I came to DC and they had a mask mandate. My friend and I were sitting outside and he needed to use the restroom and as he was getting ready to enter he forgot to put on his mask. The server was polite and he he put it on. Way to go to the staff. People may not agree with the mandate but if you come here you will get great service and the rules are followed so you know the food is excellent
Response: Thank you for the feedback. Glad you had a great visit. Please come back soon!

Natalia Mednikov: There are straightforward American-style food. This restaurant is best known for its huge old-school oyster bar—think lots of dark wood, brass fixtures, and big mirrors. That oysters was fantastic and fresh. We’ve enjoyed also cheese sampler, fried calamari and baked oysters. Everything they do is absolutely delicious. The service was very fast and friendly. We were happy to choose this great restaurant to end our busy day in Washington, D.C.

Tiberiu Hrihorciuc: Loved the experience! Tasted a dozen oysters and each one was more delicious than the other. Wine is very fairly priced. Saw it more expensive in some New York wine discount stores. The fish was such a huge portion when they split it in two plates we told them that we did not order 2 plates but to our surprise that was a full plate. If you get a chance to go to happy hours for oysters don't hesitate!
Response: Thank you, Tiberiu!

Aditya Karandikar: Had an awesome time here as a late night/ early next day stop. The food was quite nice and fairly refined, especially at such a late hour! The atmosphere was popping as well which made it more enjoyable. Service was very friendly and they had great oysters. Fresh complimentary bread never hurts either…

Sam M: This place is one of the more famous restaurants in DC. I visited this spot during brunch and it was packed. I would definitely recommend making a reservation for both weekend dinner and brunch services. I started with New England clam chowder and some salad dish. For entrees, I got eggs benedict and catfish. All the dishes I ordered were pretty good. But, I definitely enjoyed their desserts more even though I was pretty full before it. Their key lime pie and salted caramel bread pudding were both amazing! Staffs were very accommodating and attentive during the whole service. I’m planning to visit this restaurant and will get some oysters and burgers next time. I heard they are pretty good. I definitely recommend this place to celebrate any special occasions.

Suzi Figueroa: Wow, wow and wow! A friend recommended this establishment to me when I asked for dining recommendations for my upcoming DC trip. I am so glad I listened. The warm and inviting ambiance matched the service. And the food? Oh my goodness. Delicious. My SO ordered meatloaf. Who knew meatloaf could take on a such an extraordinary presentation.
Response: Suzi, Thank you for visiting Old Ebbitt Grill and leaving a great review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience and we hope to have you back again the next time you're in town.

Mary H: What a DC institution. I've been here numerous times taking "out of town" guests but always failed to write a review... This place is busy and crowded... so make a reservation. Service is attentive and friendly. Try to get a seat in the atrium, much nicer and brighter. *turkey club-generous portions of turkey. It was good and the fries were nice and hot. *salad greens- tasty, I wanted something light. *calamari-nice and crispy. They have a good selection on their menu, we just weren't that hungry. It's kinda the place to go when you visit DC.
Response: Thank you, Mary!

Amy Workman: If you're worried that this a nice place turned tourist trap that cuts corners, worry not. We had a fantastic experience and the food was superb. Our server was in his 9th year here and I wished he could've just sat and talked with us all night. They were wonderfully accommodating and welcoming of our kids, which you definitely can't say about a lot of places. Some places know that if the kids are happy the parents are more than happy to get another round and more dishes. And then when we're sans-kids someday, we'll definitely be back to sit at one of the beautiful bars. We had the walrus raw bar which was perfect for us never having had raw oysters. They did a little of each kind they had that night and I had no idea oysters could taste so different. We had the mussels, kids mac and cheese, and sausage pasta dish. The pasta was house made and the sauce creamy and spicy. So good. After dinner we walked it off around the White House. I've spent much more at restaurants and not gotten half as much food or nearly as good as service, so even though it was our most expensive meal in DC it was also our best value. Definitely a must-go in DC.

Elaine Viegas: AMAZING! There is no other word to describe it. Since we arrived until we paid the service was perfect. I couldn’t be more happy for their food, service and kindness on my birthdays lunch. We didn’t mention that it was my birthday but they saw on my profile and as soon as I arrived they asked to confirm and no only brought my desert with a candle and a cute chocolate happy birthday place on the top. Our server was amazing, she arrived singing happy birthday, was very classy and really surprised me. Thank you for the excellence in your service. BTW the food it’s top quality, my oysters and shrimps were fresh abs really tasteful.

Jelena M: Great food, great price, great service! The waiter we had was so nice, knowledgeable, and friendly! The calamari was very good, but watch out for the spicy peppers in it . My salad was yummy! I usually never order salads, but I am glad I did as the dressing was citrusy and refreshing! They also give warm bread and butter while you wait 😍
Response: Jelena, Thank you for stopping by Old Ebbitt Grill and leaving a great review! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you back again soon!

Matthew Hanna: This was a pretty cool place to eat. It is so old but very nice inside. Lots of preserved animals I didn't expect to see like sea turtles, walrus and more. The food was great and I really liked the drinks. You can still visit and get a really good burger and fries for like $18 or you can go all out and pay $100+ for a super delicious entree. Either way the alcohol is good.

Duffy's Irish Pub (Dupont Circle NW): what do users think?


M.: Great place to watch a rugby match. Wish they had more than 1 TV outside but whatever, you get to make friends. Local teams also hang out here, and it was fun to meet some other players. Would recommend. Food was also well beyond typical pub food and was in fact quite good.

SM Smith: Eli was hospitable the other night, but his “boss” or manager so hyperactive tonight. Yelled at an older man who mistakenly lit a cigarette. When I asked about the whereabouts of Eli, got angry and ego-centric that he was Eli’s boss, and that he had sent him home earlier, blah blah. Who cares dude? Just be a top notch friendly bartender, not a rude dude. You need to seriously chill. This place could be great, but needs some ego check. Was fine earlier in the week food-wise and service-wise before anti-customer service reps came in to swing their experience and ego against easy customers. Hire new people to make your vibe right.

John Evans: Great experience at a long time DC restaurant relocated to my neighborhood. Loved the fish and chips recommended. This is the new West End spot for casual dining, beers, drinks and sports TV everywhere. Happy Hour prices for food and drinks. Wings!!

BigMaMaSaiyan: I LOVE the Buffalo wings. The bleu cheese dressing is fresh and full of cheese. These alone are worth the trip. Good service and even better drinks make it a fabulous date night.

bigman250: I went to this place on the recommendation of my friends for their good food.. I got an attitude from the guy taking order. I asked him he was having a bad night. he said no. I am a black American, the only one in the restaurant, he was not accommodating at all. I ordered a ruben and fries and a Guinness while I waited he acted like I was bothering him with my request. I told him if he did not want my business I would go else where. I know when I am disrespected after my order was filled. If you are a POC, do not go to this place unless you want to be disrespected. The Rueben was not that good too.

john hammond: The menu was pretty much what you would expect --- basically fried. But, suprisingly, it includes a number of Central American dishes. The deal breaker was the insouciance of the management and server. Never again.

April Thomas: This Pub is exactly what you want to fall into whether you have been here before. Great atmosphere and you can't get better "family ' feel. Love you guys~when you come to Phoenix, let us know!

Parker Kelley: We googled this place and saw it was noted for the best wings in DC! We had to try it ! I got the fried chicken burger which was good, but wasn’t the best I’ve ever had. My fiancé got the wings with hot barbecue & Buffalo hot - he says they were 10/10. We were expecting the wings to be tossed in the sauce instead the sauce was poured on top, however, it didn’t take away from the flavor ! The atmosphere was great & we came on Tuesday trivia night. Would definitely recommend it to others for the wings !

Martin Brennan: Great little bar excellent food and service.Richard and his Staff are amazing and the bar captures a great friendly atmosphere. Well worth a visit. Definitely will visit again in the future.

Jen Putnam: I LOVE DUFFY'S!!!!! Great rugby bar! Fantastic atmosphere and Ruchard is the best bar tender! (Nolan is ok too. 😉)

CIRCA at Foggy Bottom: what do users think?


Krystal Styles: My family and I came here for dinner before going to a musical at the Kennedy Center, since it is within walking distance. The food was excellent and the customer service was great. I had the Shotgun Shrimp for an appetizer and the Wild Mushroom Ravioli for my entree'. Both were delicious and I would order these dishes if I came back again. For dessert I had the Key Lime Pie and it was just ok. I have had better elsewhere and probably wouldn't get it again, but it definitely wasn't bad. Overall, my family and I enjoyed our experience and we would go back again if in the area.
Response: Hi Krystal, Thank you so much for dining with us and providing your feedback! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your meals. I apologize that our Key Lime Pie wasn't your favorite. I am hopeful that you will enjoy other desserts of ours during your next visit. Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Kelly Crenshaw: We were going to another spot and one of my group said "what about here" as we came out of metro. They had a large party cancel so we were able to get in. Everything was great. Food was fantastic and we all were happy leaving. The mac and cheese might be there best I have ever had. I been thinking about and I can not remember a better bowl of mac and cheese... it was that good.
Response: Hi Kelly! Thanks so much for dining with us and providing your feedback. I am happy that you stumbled upon us and even happier that your group enjoyed everything - especially the mac and cheese. I hope that you will find us again in the future! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

andrew: Super cute place for brunch. My friend made a reservation for Sunday at 11am which is also when they open. It's a lovely place and prices are standard for this type of restaurant. We each started with a hot coffee and and then ordered our meals. I had the Fried Chicken Sandwich, served with sweet potato fries. Fried chicken was hot and crispy and the fries were fresh and crunchy. Exactly what i needed. My friend had the Avocado Toast, which looked really good but i didn't not try it. Service was fast and friendly. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating. We were seated outside and the weather was perfect. Located next to Whole Foods. I believe it's just street parking, but Whole Foods has a parking garage and it's free for the first 90 minutes.

Noah Wahquahboshkuk: CIRCA has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The jambalaya didn't really taste like a classic jambalaya but their spin was pretty tasty! The noodles used were great but could have been more plentiful in comparison to the proteins. The Austin Cabernet was amazing. Will make my way back soon.

Jessica R: We decided to come here on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We came for more of a late lunch/early dinner and even though we did not have reservations they still were able to seat us. They did have to seat us in their outdoor area, which was a little chilly but perfectly fine. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The food was great! I got the blackened chicken mango salad and my mom got the barbecue chicken flatbread. Both were very good
Response: Hi Jessica, We are so glad that you found us and even happier to hear that you enjoyed your experience! Hopefully we can host you inside next time! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Ed Tracy: Wow! First visit and it was quite memorable. Jambalaya entree Most Excellent. The chef worked some magic to get the best of the shrimp into the sauce. Butterflying the shrimp was also great for bit size. Brussels sprouts app, Most Excellent. Maybe best I've ever had. We got the bacon on the side. Crispy yet surrounded by soft blue cheese and a slightly sweet vinaigrette sauce. Vegetarian wife loved it too. Pumpkin ravioli were really good, a bit too sweet for my taste. Mash potatoes were good. Ask for table bread and butter. OMG, their house herb butter is fluffy and delicious. Also loved their custom concoction drinks. The Black Manhattan and the Maple Old Fashioned were smooth and delish! (the Maple OF is girl-friendly)
Response: Hi Ed, We are so happy you found us and enjoyed your first dining experience! Thank you for your support; we look forward to hosting you next time. Cheers! Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Lori Kusterer-Farley: Great dining experience for our family ! Foodie place ! Loved the outdoor tent with heaters. Burger, wings and shrimp salad were amazing! Would definitely return ! Walking distance to a DuPont circle.

Ron Milkowski: Stopped in for a quick drink. Great bartender. Seems like a college crowd. Would definitely be back for dinner. Recommended.
Response: Hi Ron! Thanks for stopping in! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our bartender. We are looking forward to your next visit for dinner! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Jessica Morales: This lovely corner is perfect, the menu is not big, but it has a good selection of different options. We had as an appetizer tuna poke nachos, the flavor combination and the fresh tuna was so delicious, and as a entree jambalaya, the spicy was on point and the penne pasta cooked to perfection, my husband ordered a braised short rib, the meat was so tender, the mash potatoes has this smooth texture so perfect. Thank you Michael, great service.
Response: Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for your rating! We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with us. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon. Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Tran Kim-Senior: My husband and I came here with some friends before going to a show at the Kennedy Center. The food was good--he had rainbow trout and I had blackened salmon and our friends each had burgers. The ambiance is energetic and on the louder side which was fine for our purposes but if you're looking for a romantic, more quiet ambiance, I wouldn't recommend this spot. The bar menu looked good and varied though we're not big drinkers so we can't provide any feedback on the drinks. There was also a nice patio if you're looking for good outdoor seating.
Response: Hi Tran, Thank you so much for dining with us and providing your feedback. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your experience. We hope that you will visit us again soon! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Del Mar: what do users think?


Genesis Marrero: I was truly impressed with this dining experience. We flew to DC for my birthday week and had my birthday dinner here. Luis served us and he was definitely one of the best servers we have ever had wait on us (and we are huge foodies so that is saying something). He was so attentive and just knew exactly how to guide the dining experience based on what the guests is wanting out of their night whether they know specifically or not. We let him take the wheel with all of the knowledgeable recommendations and we were so happy from start to finish. We came back for our last meal in DC and again, Amber served us, and again we were not disappointed. She was so sweet and also had wonderful recommendations and made sure all of our needs were met before we said goodbye and hopped on a flight. Luckily Luis was also there and he remembered us which made us happy because he was also so memorable for us. He was so nice and sent us our new favorite drink that he enlightened us to - the carajillo. I don’t think you could go wrong with a single thing on this menu. The rest of the staff was also very efficient and everything just seemed to flow so smoothly with the teamwork here. I can’t wait to go back someday!

R: This was my first time going to Del Mar and the food was phenomenal! We went as a group of 8 to celebrate a birthday. It was my first time trying octopus and it was really good. The parking in the garage was $45 since I stay for 4+ hours which was a downside for the night so it might be better to find street parking.

Dondré: I rented an igloo and I took my family here for my Mother's birthday and my experience was incredible. The bubbles aka the igloos are nice and incredibly warm. The service is five stars absolutely fantastic, the waiter was nice and patient explaining the family style ordering style. The whole restaurant is extremely nice and well decorated it's like a huge mansion. Lastly this is not a cheap restaurant by any means, but the experience is worth it.

Jack Jiang: It's a bit pricy, but the food and service are worth the penny you spent! I love how the chef perfectly blends flavors together (like pepper+crab+uni sauce). The Sangria Roja cocktail is also a highlight, mixing the richness of wine and the sweet/sour touch of fruits/flowers - one of the best cocktails I've had in a while! Would recommend to everyone

J. Ivy Smith: Food was AMAZING! This should get. Michelin Star. There paella is the best I have had. I want to say there paella and cheesecake is similar to José Andre. Service was excellent and our waiter reminded us of actor John Mulaney. I def recommend this place and def Michelin Star worthy.

Black Star Dust: Absolutely stunning place. Great service. Top tier experience. Everything was a ten. The Seafood Paella is delicious. Highly recommend that dish. It comes in different sizes for sharing. It was my bday so they brought out gratis champagne and this cheesecake that was literally the one of the most delicious desserts to grace the planet. Don’t even get me started on the churros! Amazing! I also did come in with a VIP who goes there regularly so that surely may have enhanced the experience to 10 stars!!

Jo Han: If you are looking for high quality food and drinks then this is the place to be. I love their octopus and eggplants with drinks. There are so many selections but if you want to eat a lot then I'll go for paella. If you are going for drinks and chat then small plates are awesome and very flavorful. We come here multiple times when we come near here and never had bad experiences. Service is great too. So when you are at wharf then come by and try this place =)

Eli Samuel Bermudez: Beautiful restaurant, beautiful location and delicious food. Only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because is very expensive. Maybe ridiculously expensive for the food. Still a great experience for me and my wife for our anniversary !

Alya's Aura: The food was SO delicious and of course the service was top notch. Our waiter (I believe his name is Michael) was so nice and helpful and made some great recommendations. I definitely suggest leaving space for dessert because their little dulce de leche dark chocolate cakes with the horchata ice cream was beyond amazing! The perfect end to a great meal 👌🏾

Daisy Gutierrez: Food was good. Not great but good. The service was great! This wine was my fave. A little overpriced only because I feel at those prices the food should taste better. They have a great selection though! I had the seafood paella it lacked flavor. My friend had some green rice thing, neither of us raved about our main courses. The patatas bravas are good but could use more of the brava sauce.

The Rooftop at The Ven at Embassy Row: what do users think?


farida popal: I was there on Saturday the 25th. We wanted to go to the rooftop bar. As soon we were at main entrance, the door man greeted us and guide us. When we went to the bar the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were a bet pricey and bar food was great! I’ll defiantly go again.

chrisy edme: The stay was wonderful! The staff at the front desk are amazing ! Specially Lyle at the front desk, he was just a sweetheart to us. We booked our stay prior to them implementing the daily amenity fee. He waived it off of our stay and informed us that he will be more than happy to still provide the perks ! We received some sent sachet of jasmine and lavender which were amazing :) In addition to that he provided us with late check out because our flight was later in the afternoon. He also gave us some great tips of how to get around since it was our first time in DC. Also my room was provided with daily housekeeping and my housekeeper was just a sweetheart too but forgot her name unfortunately. My only Con was the bathroom size, as it was super small and there was no ventilation.

Kimberly “ ” Watson: Excellent! Love the space! The art exhibit in the hotel was wonderful!

D Nguyễn: This bar on the top of the hotel with a pool has a nice view of the city. Not that DC has much of a skyline. The pool is nice to relax after a day of exploring the museums. We went during the day for a couple drinks during Pride. We also came back in the evening before dinner for pre-drinks. It wasn't crowded. A couple people in the pool. The bar as a selection of food and cocktails. The bar service was friendly. Drinks are about what I expect from a hotel roof bar.

Don Robinson: The bartender said it was a "soft opening" for the season. The drinks were very limited. No regular Red Bull (but lots of flavors of Red Bull), no Coke- only Pepsi, and not diet, and many other limitations. He gave us a free drink because he started to make the Jack and diet Pepsi but couldn't finish when he realized no diet Pepsi. The service was very good, and presumably they will have more options when they "really" open. The rooftop area was pretty basic, as I expected from the reviews, but the views of the city were nice. You could hear a little of the street music from Dupoint occasionally. This is not a destination, but was a great hour stopover between dinner and our Improv comedy show.

Neil Osment: Our review is split between the cocktail bar and the rooftop bar.....because the rooftop is actually closed for the season!! Not very helpful that this fact isn't advertised on Google or TripAdvisor by the hotel. However, the cocktail bar is very good, and Jorge (The Guru from Peru!!) is excellent. Friday evening (10/20/17 USA not GMT!) in the main bar was lively, vibrant and a great place to be 😊

jo n: Visited on a Saturday late afternoon. When the bartender was asked about happy hour he claimed there wasn't one. Although the sign at the hotel lobby clearly stated there was one from 4-7pm. Based on quality, the drinks are super overpriced. The rooftop itself is small, an okay view. Don't waste your time visiting.

Reuben Wauyo: This is a beautiful venue and would seem to be all great but terrible customer service. Called for a reservation and information on restaurant and was referred to main line. To which someone picked up after I waited on hold, heard me then hung up. This is the most disrespectful and frustrating thing I can think of when trying to get things set for events. Calling back no one picks up and I have now been calling main line for 30 minutes to be assisted and again no one to answers. You would have to be crazy to work with these guys on anything important for you will receive absolutely no clarification or answers on any questions you have. I was very surprised to even see positive reviews at all. I really hope it’s an isolated event, but if I can help anyone else not deal with my issue I’ll be glad to steer you away and onto another location. I will update with location and name after my reservation is set with our new venue. Also to be noted, not even the central main line can reach these guys and are unwilling to even try. I believe we’ve definitely dodged a bullet.

Walter Hunt: Friendly staff , great location, very accommodating

Ariel Abramson: Nice view and plenty of seats, but they close early and there isn't much of a drink selection. My beer selection tapped out the keg but the nice bar server gave it to me at no charge.

Amanda Cymore: The "Nevis" shrimp tacos were ridiculously fresh with so many bright flavors! I also got an order of Street Corn but should've gotten two because it disappeared so fast. Worth the trip...will definitely be back! 🍤🌮🌽

Brian Copes: Went here on an evening date and it was nice experience. Food - honestly the individual tacos are a bit over priced for myself but they sounded delicious off of the menu. My date and I had the burritos and they were tasty. I had the shrimp burrito and it was so good. Big fresh shrimp and nice bits of zucchini crunch too. Fresh ingredients and a fancy small salad too! Service - super respectful staff and fairly quick service too. No complaints. Vibe/Aesthetic - California surf shake vibe. It just felt casual, fun and nautical to me. I would go back for the fresh food but I would not try the tacos because of the prices were high in my opinion.

James Walker: Love the fresh ingredients, in the Martinique Burrito, partcularly liked their yellow rice, and large shrimps. The side salad's dressing was so good, not even sure what kind, but made a memory. My first time, used a favorable review to order, this item.

Ashley Chambers (Foxy): This placed came highly recommended. During my first visit I ordered carry out for a Tahiti Salad and to my surprise, when I went to eat it, it was missing most of it’s ingredients. No shrimp or bean sprouts. This is what I looked forward to the most. For as long as I waited, you would think quality control would be better. For an $18 salad I was quite disappointed.

Nate B: We really enjoyed this place. We had the queso and chips, Berrian tacos, and a salad bowl. All were very good. Service was great. I would definitely recommend this place.

Christopher Lew: Grabbed this togo as we were walking around the wharf cherry blossom festival - the Bloomaroo. We ordered the negril tacos (blackened mahi mahi) and added on a birria taco just to try. A little on the pricer side (18 dollars for 3 tacos), but easy to eat on the go, and portion size was just the right amount to get us to dinner! Wish they had indicated in the menu that it came with rice, but that was also a welcome surprise! I preferred the flavor kick of the negril a bit more. The negril had a complex flavor profile with spicy, sour, and savory along with the creaminess that came from the avocado! It was delicious! The birria needed more spice and it looked like the shell hadn't been fried in birria oil, but it was crispy! Overall, pretty decent, and quick service. Also lovely decor! I loved all the license plates of different states (not american)!

Zara Ahmad-Post: I got the grilled shrimp tacos, they were decent and came with a good amount of shrimp. Good flavors overall. The rice wasn’t great, and I think the place is generally overpriced. Coming from the southwest I feel weird paying 20 bucks for a corona and two shrimp tacos. The atmosphere is good though and the staff were friendly. Food came out quickly despite the place being packed.

Michael King: Had the Andros burrito as a bowl, it was outstanding. Flavors are all on point. High recommend this place!

Nathan Toombs: Great food and variety, we had carne asada tacos and a fish burrito, along with some elote on the side, definitely too much food for the two of us!

3DPrintingGuru: Great atmosphere and food. The frozen drinks where really great too! Also allergy friendly so that’s amazing.

J Macgowens: If you're looking for dive bars then this is a super dive bar. This is the place you want to be. Beer and shots beer and shots, at a true bar all you need are beer and shots. That's just what you get here. This place is heaven for those who want a great bar atmosphere, good people, good drinks (shots & beer), friendly and personable staff and awesome decor.

david fegan: Tom and Chaz are a father son duo rivaled only by Carl and eddy winslow. What they lack in the hairline department they make up for in clean family friendly jokes. Truly inspirational. Christmas all year round

Christopher Phillips: Best dive bar on east DC. Never let this place go.

Keith Delk: Cheap drinks at the expense of rude bartenders who don't know how to communicate properly with people who use ASL.

Carl-Martin Nelson: Feels like a small town bar in a big city. Simple, fun, and easy. Highly recommend.

Manuel Nunez: Great place to hang w old friends in the DCHC scene!

Hailey Johnson: We were waiting for a spot at Toki upstairs and got some drinks here. The bartender was super cool, everyone was laid back. My friend and I really loved the atmosphere here. If we're ever in D.C. again, we would definitely go back.

Helen McCulley: As long as you know what you are getting into, you will be good. It is a dive, little grungy, little gruff, and at times completely ridiculous. But the beer is cold, the music is great, and people are coming there for one reason - to drink. A classic goto spot on H Street. Love this place. That said, the staff makes the night - and one long time bartender is just not good. He's too slow and his music selections and personality just don't do it for me. If the place looks like a rocking good time when you look in, he's not there. He's the opposite of a draw.

Sean Dougherty: Best dive bar in east DC.

James Black: Do not come expecting a posh drinking adventure fueled by fancy bartenders and cool specialty cocktails. This is a bar. For people that want to drink. Super casual. Neighborhood bar feel. Your tab won't break you. Plenty of food spots in and around it in H St, this isnt one of them. Eat there. Drink here. In any order you please.
