Unconventional Diner: what do users think?


Zeyu Hu: Went to Unconventional Diner for both brunch and dinner and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint at all. Brunch: Got three different items to share for brunch, and each was unique in its own way but complimented each other so well. The shrimp and grits were perfect. The BBQ shrimp had an amazing smokey smell which really made it stand out. The biscuits were also amazing, nice and crispy and the house made sausage was great. The blueberry pancakes were the fluffiest I’ve ever had, a great sweet treat to end the meal. Dinner: Came back for dinner a week later and it blew me out of the water again. As the name suggests, the menu has a large variety and when the waiter tells you you can’t go wrong with anything, they ain’t lying. We got such a variety of food - from French to southern, Chinese stir fry to Cuban. It just all works so well. Bottom line: A must visit if you are in DC. The best wait staff and service. But remember to book ahead!

Claire Mizutani: Went out to dinner with my family and a friend from school. Great food! I really enjoyed the mezze and the Mac n cheese. Speedy service and great labeling on the menu for those with dietary restrictions. I wish that the outdoor seating area had heaters but now that the weather is getting warmer that may be less of an issue

Christopher Guarin: Was in town to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival. We made a point to stop in for some brunch before walking all over town. We were definitely not disappointed. Everything we tried was delicious! From the drinks, to the Everything Lox, and Chicken and Waffles....every bite was amazing. We will be back for more on our next trip!

Eric Lee: Got the cheeseburger and fried chicken. Both were phenomenal. Simple dishes but everything was cooked and seasoned so well. Price for these dishes were affordable. Great vibe as well, pretty large space. Will be back to try more!

Queen Melissa: Wonderful for family outing , a date and friends brunch. Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness was good. The customer service and server was really nice. My kids loved everything and they are usually picky eaters. This was my first time eating shrimps and grits all I can say it was amazing. Overall,we were a satisfied family and will be back again.

Ben Multak: Unconventional diner dishes but delicious flavors. Everything I’ve tried here has hit and the restaurant itself is a well oiled machine. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area. Really enjoyed the Crab Fritters and Fried Chicken

Sirius Fidelity: This was one of my favorite food places on my trip. The place was a pretty good size, clean, and bright. There also appeared to be outside dining as well. I ordered the kid size portion of the Blueberry Lavender Pancakes as pictured, and the Shrimp and Grits. Nothing short of amazing. Prices were reasonable and the portion sizes good. I highly recommend this place.

Christal Young: I love a place that has vegan as well as non-vegan options. This place was so good, I came back two days in a row. Their kale nachos were just superb and their cauliflower salad with falafel was also delicious and filling. The colors and ambiance are also nicely done. There are several dining spaces, including indoor and outside seating, each with its own vibe.

ReCreate Artworks: I found this gem about a 20 minute walk north of the mall. I cannot recommend it enough. There was plenty of seats, the staff was quick and efficient, and the restaurant itself was stunning. It makes you feel luxurious without having the price tag that usually comes with it. It’s very affordable but the quality of food is beyond the price. I got a double shot of espresso and the Brussel Sprouts with Fried Egg. 10/10.

Chunhee Hong: We had buttermilk pancake, corned beef hash, cappuccino and rise & shine. All delicious! The customer service and server were really nice. Overall,we were satisfied and will be back again to try other menu!

Ted's Bulletin: what do users think?


Arash Tavakoli: I had one of my best dining experiences in this place. The breakfast is easily enough for two people. The staff are super welcoming. Try their tarts and that tastes like heaven. Been very happy with the pancakes and hey they bring you a whole container of coffee. I also really liked that when we ordered one breakfast for two, they put it in two different plates. Thoughtful! So enjoy!

Calvin Thumma: My wife and I went here after a recommendation from a co-worker of mine. The area we are from has a number very good bistro and brunch locations but this meal blew them out of the water. My French toast was by far the best I’ve ever had, the bacon was crisp, potatoes were perfect and the eggs yummy. My wife’s meal was equally delicious, she order eggs, potatoes, toast and sausage. Nicole was our server and made sure every was perfect and never left our drinks get close to empty

Paul LaVigne: Enjoyed the bakery treats we had the other day so much we came back for brunch. Be sure to call ahead for reservations as this is a very busy place with longer wait times. The food was excellent. I do recommend you come and enjoy this place when you’re in town

Angelica Norman-Beltran: Walked past this restaurant on my way home and decided to stop and have dinner. I'm so glad I did. My waitress was very nice and sociable. I ordered their Lavender Mule from the cocktail menu, Loaded Tater tots to start and decided to go with Avocado toast for my dinner, and finished everything off with their seasonal Cherry Blossom Churros. Every thing tasted amazing, I'd caution on using too much of the ranch sauce on the tater tots. It added an extra salt flavor that my mouth didn't like, use it sparingly. The Avocado toast was worth it the price. The poached eggs were made perfectly and there was a lot more avocado than I expected so that was a pleasant surprise. (Note it can be spicy with they peppers they use). All in all I'm happy I found this place while on a walk. I'll need to stop by again and try out a nother dish!

Jessica Zheng: Pretty good brunch location! For drinks, we just got a caramel iced coffee and a vanilla milkshake. Coffee was okay, didn’t really taste the caramel flavor at all. For our meals- I got the Big Mark Breakfast. The sausage was very tasty but the eggs and hash brown were pretty bland, I ended up using dipping them in ketchup. Boyfriend got the salmon toast, that was surprisingly tasty! I was just weirded about eating raw salmon as my first meal of the day but it caught me by surprise!

Tilak Kalaria: Absolutely spectacular dining experience at Tex’s Bulletin for brunch. Service was awesome in this spot with a great ambience and location in DC. The food was excellent too so much to choose from. Their avacado toast has such great attention to detail. The S’mores tart was special! To better enhance our awesome experience someone kind patron paid for my party of 5’s brunch!! Highly recommend Ted’s!!

Amanda Pokrzywa: Friendly service, great atmosphere, insanely delicious food! Highly recommend the BBQ & Bacon Bloody Mary! There's something special about their homemade tarts. The Huevos Rancheros hit all the flavor profiles I was looking for.

Fiorella Hidalgo: Went to get the special cherry blossom dessert during the Cherry Blossom Festival! Smoked Salmon Benedict is one of the best I ever had before! (I like it better than Kramer’s!). It took a while to get seated on a Sunday morning, so try to make a reservation in advance!

Hannah: Okay. I’m excited to review this place as an avid brunch food lover. To begin: we were told that the wait time was 40mjn and given a buzzer. Great. No problem, totally understand. To be fair, we hadn’t made reservations that morning. We wait 50min. They then tell us to wait another 30 minutes. My pregnant and hungry friend got it changed to 20min. Still. Once inside, the vibes were great. Our server was fast and attentive. Huge food portions and cute decor. Definitely not worth the weird waiting times, but will definitely make reservations next time!

Jacob Grice: Breakfast was awesome!!! Staff was super nice, restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was uplifting and calming at the same time. Food was very good and filling , you must try the cheese cake!! Defiantly will be back again!!

Old Ebbitt Grill: what do users think?


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.

Le Diplomate: what do users think?


Thang Phu: Highly recommended! We stopped by for a late afternoon food one day and was amazed at how fantastic the food is. It was all so good, especially their desserts. I have travelled to multiple regions in France and I can attest the food here tastes the closest to food in France. They even have a wine carafe on the menu, just like France. I wished I lived near here so I could go treat myself now and then.
Response: Thank you for such a complimentary review, Thang. We’re excited that you found our food and service to be five-star worthy. We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future at Le Diplomate.

mike wittenburg: Five Stars for the food and the atmosphere. Visited on a busy Saturday evening and got a table without a reservation, amazing. So much seating available. Indoor and outdoor seating. Went with a couple of friends and the drinks and food were fabulous. Tuna dish is a small serving. Trout was great and the muscles were awesome. Apple dessert and vanilla creme brulee delicious. Definitely a popular spot. And the bread... So much bread... Good variety of bread to choose from. Enjoy!
Response: mike, we’re pleased to know you had a great experience at Le Diplomate. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Feel free to follow us @lediplomatedc to keep in touch on Instagram!

Cindy Yang: Service: 3/5 Food: 4/5 Got a reservation and got seated immediately. We were running late and was trying to call but they don't answer phone calls. Fortunately our table was kept with a grace period. Recommend warm shrimp salad (the shrimp is very fresh), steak, escargot, and the duck. French onion soup is a must. We also ordered fries with added truffle but the truffle is flavorless so strongly recommend against adding it the entree.
Response: Thank you so much for the feedback, Cindy. We are always looking to improve and greatly appreciate the 4-stars. We hope we can earn that extra star on your next visit!

Daae Katsicoyannis: The meal was incredible. I recommend going with friends and sharing everything. The service was also impeccable. You can tell that all ingredients at this restaurant are fresh and of excellent quality. It’s rare to find such an approachable restaurant of this league. I would recommend to anyone.
Response: Daae, we’re pleased to know you had a great experience at Le Diplomate. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Feel free to follow us @lediplomatedc to keep in touch on Instagram!

brian perkins: Loved this place for a few reasons. Let’s start with the bread. Why can’t all restaurants serve great, fresh, delicious bread? Because it’s not easy. I pictured the empty escargot plate because after dipping the bread in the garlic sauce it was game over. Add onion soup, superb steak frites, profiteroles to die for and you have a neighborhood gem. Not to mention the wait staff gives treats to dogs being walked by the restaurants. How great is that?!
Response: Thank you for such a complimentary review, brian. We’re excited that you found our food and service to be five-star worthy. We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future at Le Diplomate.

Rob: The food and ambiance are always great. However, on multiple occasions, I’ve felt that the service is not what you’d expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Last time I felt a bit rushed and the service, while attentive, was curt. When our entrees arrived, a waiter couldn’t fully reach to place my friend’s plate in front of him. Rather then walk around the table (there was space), the waiter placed it on the table and gave the plate a quick flick of the wrist to push it over. It’s a small example but I think captures a similar sentiment seen in other reviews about the service.
Response: Rob, we're happy to know you had a positive experience at Le Diplomate and appreciate your feedback on how we can improve. Hopefully, we have another opportunity to serve you in the future so we can earn that last star!

Karissa Warren: Had an awesome food experience on New Years! Was a little disappointed they didn’t have their usual pastry assortment but every single item we got was delicious!! We really came for the pastries and croissants but were blown away by the food! If you want an authentic French croissant, they’ve got you covered! We will definitely be back!
Response: Karissa, 5-star experiences are what we strive for day in and day out here at Le Diplomate. Thank you for the great feedback and we'll hopefully see you again soon!

Dee Ketterman: We’ve eaten here twice and love the food and decor. The feel of the restaurant more resembles an upscale bar with delicious food, as most people are standing and drinking rather than eating. I’d like to try sitting at the bar because I think it’d be a better experience to fit the atmosphere over a low table with people standing all around. The mushroom tart is fantastic and the French onion soup is the best I’ve ever had! The service was dressed appropriately but less attentive than expected, most likely because of how busy it seems to get. Regardless, I really like the food and hope to visit again soon.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent visit to Le Diplomate, Dee. Our staff works incredibly hard to ensure our guests have the best dining experience. We hope to see you back very soon and to earn that extra star!

Heivi Herne: They call themselves a Spanish restaurant. The interior is nice. Restaurant is spacious. There are different rooms with tables. There are also tables to sit outside. The service wasn't not very fast. I ordered one cocktail. It wasn't very good. The funny thing was that they brought bread, bread and margarine as a snack. I have been to Spain a lot of times and eaten there. There is no such snack there. I think that this place is overpriced

Bibiana Oe: Very cute upscale dining experience! The waiter had many recommendations that were appealing. The bread with the butter is amazing! Ordered assorted oysters, mushroom tart, beef bourguignon, mussels and frites, and the profiteroles. Loved everything and it was good portions! Recommend for a lovely cozy dining in experience since the bar and inside of the restaurant is super unique!
Response: We're happy to know you had a positive experience at Le Diplomate and appreciate your feedback on how we can improve. Hopefully, we have another opportunity to serve you in the future so we can earn that last star!

Mazi DC - New American Cuisine: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: A really nice place for lunch. The service was great and my friend and I really enjoyed our food. My lamb burger was large, juicy, and delicious and my friend enjoyed her Mediterranean salad. Nice and clean, tables not too close together, so we felt very comfortable dining in. And beautiful fresh flowers at every table.
Response: Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos and your review, Hilda! We're delighted to see that you liked the food and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Providing quality food and services in a safe environment to our customers is what we aim for! Thanks again for your kind words!

Chioma O: Went to Mazi with some friends for a birthday dinner. Ambience and service was quite good. I ordered a Bourbon Mule which I have had before ...the taste was a bit off so I wasn't a huge fan. However the lamb burger I had was delicious and my friends also enjoyed their meals particularly the lamb chops. Price is a bit high for meal sizes but if you want to splurge a bit...its a good night out
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us, Chioma!

K Scott: Cute place and I enjoyed the food, went here last night for New Year’s Eve with my daughter and her dad. We enjoyed our selves staff were really nice. Lamb chops were really really great. My little sister told me come here after going for her birthday a few months ago.
Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience!

Emily C.: This restaurant just cross street from the hotel where we stay, so convenient. The waitress and waiter were friendly, Loved the food, cooked just right, perfect taste.
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us, Emily!

Keshia Wideman: First time experiencing the Mazzi. I must say the food chicken kabob, and honey feta cheese was superb, but yes but, the waiter was not welcoming, or really pleasant at all. The owner/ manager I believe was very pleasant, and explanatory of our concerns. We celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday here tonight. Definitely a nice ambience, just in my opinion the waiters could be more pleasant to casual guest of mixed aged people.
Response: Thank you so much for giving us a shot, and even more for leaving us your review, Keshia! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your meal while dinign with us and we appreciate your feedback regarding the service, as it is comments like this we learn from and use to improve. We really hope to see you again soon!

Anna: Ok but a bit underwhelming. We started with brussels, good but heavy, and mushrooms, which would be better with something. Bowl of mashrooms was a bit weird. Then we moved to cesar salad with chicken and a NY strip. Nothing to complain about, but just very regular food.
Response: Thank you for your review, Anna!

Tim Shea: I had the grilled Salmon with rice and mixed veggies which was very good. They have a med style menu. The staff was friendly and the food arrived quickly. I'll check it out next time I'm in town.
Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner here, Tim! Thanks for checking us out and taking the time to share. Hope to see you again if you're ever back in town!

Marina Figueroa: Love the ambiance. Food was delicious as well as the wine. Service was also exceptional.
Response: Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and your kind words, Marina!

Andrea Smith: They accommodated our group of 45 well. We super appreciate the deliciousness of the food, attentiveness, and great service. A group that size is hard but they delivered consistent and delicious meals to all.
Response: We are grateful that you took the time out to leave us this review, Andrea. We put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience while dining with us!

David Manalan: We were staying nearby, and stopped in at lunchtime to get out of the heat and relax with food and beverage. The hamburgers we ordered were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We were intrigued by the menu so we returned for dinner- outdoors. Chicken Kabobs and the Wine Roasted half chicken were absolutely wonderful. We returned for a number of additional meals, and the wait staff and owner not only recognized us, they welcomed us as though we were old friends. A definite 5 star place.
Response: Many thanks for choosing to dine with us again and again, David! We are delighted to learn that you were pleased with the dishes you tried! Hospitality is a source of great pride for us and we are glad that reflected to your visit! Thanks again for your kind words!

Founding Farmers DC: what do users think?


Erica Anstey: We had a fabulous experience here. It's a very fun atmosphere and the food was delicious. I had the crazy corn chicken salad and it might be my most favorite salad ever. My husband had the southwest chicken salad and my daughter had the chicken and waffles. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our waitress, Camilla, was fantastic and has a great personality. Everyone working there seemed like they were having a good time.
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Erica! I am glad that you and your family enjoyed their dining experience. Please dine with us again! -Xenia

Tyler Davis: Quality food and drinks! Stopped by while out and about visiting DC with the family. Short walk from several metro stations. Reserved a table during lunchtime the morning we went and was seated minutes after we showed up. Staff was attentive and my drink was never empty. Reasonable prices for the quality food you get considering the location and love the bar menu. Was recommended this place by several people and it was quickly apparent why. Will definitely visit again next time we are in DC!
Response: Awesome! Thank you so much! -Jessica

Konstantinos Rizakos: We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The hosts and servers were polite and effective, albeit the food and drinks took a while to come out. Everything was very very tasty. The meat in particular. Try the prime rib, and the pork chops - but you may want to ask that they cook less than you usually like because ours were slightly over cooked.
Response: Thank you so much for the glowing review! Please come back soon! -Jessica

Kimberly Giang: Omg so yummy. Visited DC for the first time and found this restaurant for breakfast. It definitely did not disappoint! It was so yummy we came back the next morning. We reserved a table online and good thing we did because it gets crowded fast. Our table was ready when we arrived and all of the staff was very friendly. Food came out fast. The French toast was so unique and tasted amazing. I loved the Eggs Benedict and how crispy the hash browns were! Definitely would come back!
Response: Thank you so much for the glowing review!! So glad you enjoyed your first dining experience with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica

Francess Kargbo: I've gone to Founding Farmers for brunch previously, but I'm glad to say I prefer their supper menu. The chicken was well seasoned and juicy. The green beans were fresh, and I substituted mashed potatoes for the honey scotch carrots as the side. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. I definitely suggest this restaurant as a dinner option; you will like it.

WooDo Jedi: Good service! Our server was outstanding. (Front hostess and host didn’t make us feel welcome though - we felt like cattle coming through the door). Our orders came our timely and had that flavor profile that spoke of home. We would definitely return here!
Response: Though the welcome was not warm, we are thrilled you enjoyed the meal and service! We look forward to your next visit and giving you a great experience from start to finish! -Tiffany

Peter Shaw: Great food and coffee, albeit slightly over priced. The beignets were very very good. Personally don't think the egg scramble was worth ordering. Service was good but the food came out rather slowly. Waited a good 45 min for food to come out.
Response: Hi, Peter. I am very sorry you waited so long for your breakfast order. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you again! :) -Kerry

Frankie Painter: This is our 3rd time here and WOW, everything we’ve ever ordered has been amazing! We always start with the honey cornbread and this time I got Scallops Meunière with butternut squash risotto and my husband got catfish with grits and green beans. My scallops were cooked to perfection - they cut like butter. The atmosphere here is warm and cozy but lively, although there were way less people this time because of social distancing restrictions. Our waiter was super! We had to show an ID and proof of vaccination. Highly, highly recommend!!
Response: Thank you so much for the amazing review, Frankie! We are so thrilled to read that you and your husband enjoyed your visit with us! We aim to give you a great experience on your 4th visit also! Thank you so much for dining with us! -Najjah :)

Ying Liang: Friend took me here for dinner when I visited DC. We went on a late weekday evening. Definitely call for reservations ahead of time because it was incredibly crowded. I’m not sure how long we would’ve had to wait if we didn’t plan for that. Our waitress was very nice, food took a while, probably because it was so busy! So plan some time to catch up and relax. It was sort of dark and loud but the restaurant still had nice ambiance. I got the chicken and waffles… and oh my goodness, it was the best fried chicken and the best waffles I’ve ever had. So freaking good. The green beans were crunchy/fresh and the mac and cheese was decent. Not sure what sauce it came with but I was enjoying it! I would probably try to get here for early brunch next time instead. Definitely recommend you stop by if you get the chance.
Response: Thank you so much for the glowing review. Please come back soon! -Jessica

Goose Prevot: Stumbled upon this restaurant while walking over towards the Lincoln Memorial. The atmosphere was awesome. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I liked that the craft cocktail spirits were distilled by the restaurant. We were able to purchase a bottle to take home as well. The food was very tasty. It is a definite try if you are around the area.
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad you enjoyed everything. Please come back soon!- Amber

Lucian Jessel: Brunch was absolutely amazing, and the patio seating was gorgeous! All of the servers were incredibly friendly and helpful. I also absolutely love that gluten free options not only exist, but also are clearly labeled. The gluten free brownie sundae was especially amazing - the texture and flavor were spot on. Pricing is also excellent - it was much cheaper than I expected, especially in regards to the quality/quantity of food and the fact that it's in DC. 10/10, would recommend!

Michelle Diane: Yummy brunch spot with a great outdoor dining set up- it was spacious and had heating lamps. Service was amazing and food was bomb. FYI, the portions are big and certainly shareable (especially the breakfast pizza!) we weren't able to finish it all!

Jo Kim: My Manager set up a Holiday team gathering for a mixology class here. We started out w a rose and made 3 drinks w tastings in between. It was very informational and the timing between cocktails were spot on. The instructor was fantastic and very generous on the liquor. I personally wasn’t a fan on the drink with Chartreuse but the history she told us, behind the liquor was fun/interesting to learn. The food in between were delicious that we stayed for full plates of food after. Service was spot on and food were great.

abdiel blas: Very relaxing atmosphere with open minded people. Great spot for breakfast! Staff were a little busy because it was a packed house but did their best to serve us in a timely manner. Would recommend!

Tiffany W: I really liked my fish and mashed potatoes. My friend ate the porkchop and did not like it. I also ate a piece and I did not like it either. I think the pork chop was really big but not cooked through enough for our liking. The server was cool, drinks were good (bloody mary & peach old fashion)and the atmosphere was nice. I would come back for happy hour.

Fei stetzwa: Marcus, our server: punctual, courteous, charming, and handsome. For that reason alone we'd return. The food and drinks were tasty, well presented and affordable.

Scotty Leach: One of my favorite affordable breakfast spots near Logan Circle. Reliable, fast, and the food is wonderful. I generally order the Huevos rancheros and a mocha to go with it, which fills me up and brings me joy. The outdoor seating is really nice too - I went on a first date here and being outdoors on a warm weekday morning made it feel more intimate somehow. Anyway - the place is usually packed and yet the food still comes quick. Those cooks are amazing. Bottom line: Highly recommended.

Jorden Van Etten: Went here for brunch on my birthday. Had the bottomless mimosas and pancakes. Such a great experience. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. I enjoyed this place so much. The food was so great and i got a free banana split sundae for my bday

Kevin Livingston: Pork belly appetizer was good. Fish and chips were excellent! I will ask that our server please forgive me, because I do not remember his name, but he was very nice and seemed very pleased to take our order. Thank so much, sir. Loved the decor and the atmosphere. Most important; clean restroom 🚻.

Linden Yee: This place is awesome! The happy hour is so reasonably priced with $5 rail spirits and cheap appetizers. I really liked the chicken lettuce wraps. Breakfast has also been solid too. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the staff is always really friendly.

Kiffa Shirley: An amazing foodie experience. The personal experience from ALL the staff from the moment we walked in made for the start of an truly special anniversary dinning experience. Well worth the $$$. Jackets are not required for gentlemen, but I was also one of the very few without. The food was delicious and the photos don’t do them Justice. The neighboring tables were engaging and open for menu suggestions back and forth. And I think we saw a notable or too if your into the DC scene.

Andras Heczey: This is an outstanding restaurant within the heart of Washington DC. The venue was renovated during the pandemic, has a brand new interior with nice noise dampening ceiling panels which certainly keep the ambiance. Service is exceptional with knowledgeable waiting staff. The food is Italian inspired modern dishes including refined selection of pastas, octopus with apple puree, perfectly prepared beef tenderloin, squid ink infused risotto with grilled calamari etc. Their wine list is dominated by an Italian selection complimented with Californian wines. From their deserts, the panna cotta is exceptional. Not cheap, but for this experience, it is worth it.

Naile Ruiz: 10/10 Service is solid, the waiters are very attentive and want to make sure you're always content. The dry-aged ribeye was delicious, the sauce was full of flavor. I wish it would have had more of the potato puree to add to the steak, but overall really enjoyed my dish. Inside decor is very pretty. Great location!

Stefan Tobler: A wonderful dining experience, excellent service and atmosphere. Food is delicious, you can’t go wrong with whatever you choose. A memorable spot, highly recommended.

Gregory Leung: This was the best meal in recent memory. Risotto squid ink and grilled calamari was sublime. Roasted cauliflower amazing. Jay was fabulously knowledgeable about the wine and food selection. Truly an impressive and memorable evening.

Scott Matus: Needed a place to go for a pre-show meal and TOSCA did not disappoint. Everything from the food to the service and ambiance was excellent. The grilled Bronzino was especially delicious and perfectly cooked.

John Whyman: Took a chance on the short rib Agnolotti pasta dish and it was way better than expected. ☆☆☆☆☆ Tasty. Rich. Can't say enough good things about it. Tosca is the greatest restaurant in DC. ☆☆☆☆

Michelle Alcanter: Great service, great food, great portion! Overall very pleasant experience. The ribeye steak was fantastic, very tender with a great onion sauce. I also like the half pasta portion so that you have room to try other things!

Grace Vi: Ate here, at the bar, on our last evening in DC. It was a nice end to a great visit. Tosca is run like a tight ship. The food was exquisite; the wine selected by our waiter was excellent. The Garganelli was divine. Craving it as I'm writing about it now! Thank you to the staff for such attentive and friendly service. We felt pampered. We shall return!!

Agustina Fainguersch: Absolutely one of the best meals I have ever had. We ordered the prosciutto appetizer, the spaghetti, the agnolotti, and the tiramisu. Left absolutely satisfied with the food and service.

Blue Duck Tavern: what do users think?


Jennifer 怡慧 Lin: Came to DC for the cherry blossoms and to celebrate our anniversary. So glad we were able to get a reservation on a Saturday night. We loved everything we ordered, the beef rib was so flavorful but tender, the striped bass is light but fresh and the texture of the fish was so soft, the side order of cauliflower has great flavor and with a crispy outside, almost greens beans blended really well with the mushroom. We also got an apple pie as dessert, the pie crust is extremely thin but flaky, the apple filling is tangy but remains a very good texture (not overly soft). We couldn't finish it so took it back to our hotel and ate it the next morning, it still tasted really good! The whole experience sitting right in front of the open kitchen was really cool, we were able to see the chef dedicatedly finishing every dish before serving it. We really enjoyed our visit at the Blue Duck Tavern and we're impressed by the quality of each dish here.

Michelle Wiciak: Absolutely phenomenal. This place has the best duck ever. Honestly, everything we had was amazing--from the charcuterie board to the horseradish potatoes to the chocolate peanut butter cake. A well-rounded meal. Not to mention, our waiter did an excellent job at recommending our wine selection and paired beautifully with our dishes. Just an amazing experience and will come back when we are in the city again.

Tilak Kalaria: Blue Duck Tavern in the Park Hyatt is an amazing dining experience. The ambience and the service match the excellent cocktails, wine, and cuisine. You truly get what you pay for and you do pay don’t get me wrong but WoW everything tastes excellent and the service team’s attention to detail elevates the experience. The bone marrow and the duck were my favourite dishes to name a couple. Intriguingly delicious was their house bread with olives! Excellent dining experience that is worth the price. Cheers.

Kim Nguyen: Wow. We were so impressed with the quality of the food here. It’s my first time in DC and after a bit of researching for fine dining restaurant, we decided to try Blue Duck Tavern. I was able to make a last minute reservation for 2 at 8:30pm. Their bone marrow and duck breast were so bomb. The service was amazing as well. Highly recommend!

Jerry’s Adventure: Service, value, flavor it hits all the marks The short ribs were tender and melts in your mouth. And with a smoky flavor 👌 the egg 🥚 is cooked perfectly as it gives a creamy texture to the dish. The biscuit holds up with good structure, but it’s flavor may not be as accentuated as it can be (mostly herbs) and can use a gravy. Pancakes were fluffy as expected and presentation is beautiful 😌 Overall a must go in DC area

Jim Baker: Went here on a recommendation from a friend, and while the food was very good and the service was attentive, we just weren't as blown away as we expected, especially at the price point. The short rib hash was a just little low on flavor and the Pork Belly Benedict seemed a little clumsy with how the pickled vegetables, basically a lot of carrots, were assembled together. Again, others might completely disagree with this, so go and try and make up your own mind, it just won't become a staple for us.

Michael B: This was a very nice restaurant. But honestly, none of the food was that memorable. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere was nice, but for this price point I expect to die and go to heaven. I just wasn't feeling it. Nothing was wrong, but I wasn't blown away.

Vivian Cheng: Went for lunch. Food is solid, well-executed. We had the cured ocean trout (delicious!) and the kale salad (perfect) with two entrees. Crab cakes are large and delicious. Well seasoned, paired with a salad. I had the confit duck leg. Flavorful, succulent, with a beautiful crispy skin. Sadly, we were too full for dessert. Well-worth a visit.

Tamila Torab Eghdami: It was my first time eating duck. The food was absolutely delicious! 😋 The service was amazing. Too bad we didn’t have time to go back for the second time but next time I’m in Washington definitely we’ll go back. We also tried their apple pie with tea and it was the best apple pie I ever had in my whole life. This restaurant worth your money and time!

Amer Alsamman: Went for our anniversary. The staff were curtious, and friendly. Our waiter went above and beyond to make make our experience great The apple pie was amazing. I had the beef rib which was good but had more fat veins than expected.

Miguel Curiel: Elegant experience, tasty food. Went in for brunch and place is 1) more beautiful than expected and 2) cheaper than expected. Great pick if you want to go have a nice talk + meal in somewhere iconic, fancy and affordable. Highly recommended that you reserve beforehand.
Response: We're glad you enjoyed your visit to The Greenhouse!

Athena Press: The Green House at the Jeffersom Hotel. OMG. if.you'd like the feeling of being catered to as the upper crust was in the late 1800's and early 1900's, this is DA PLACE, in Washington DC. My cumpliments to the Chef, in making an extraordinary experience out of a simple burger including fresh, juicy, quality sirloin cooked to.perfection. Mimosas, strong freshly brewed coffee, impeccable and warm service, and exquisitely manicured ambiance made the cut for my "11, Above the Mondane" review. My numbers (10 is top) Reception: 11. (got.the coat, led us to the table, made two tourists feel at home and special) Servers and buzz boy; 11 Food quality: 11 Food quantity: just right. 10 Decor and ambiance: 11 (inspiring1800's decadence) Cleanness 11 Bathrooms:11 (Omg!!!!) Location; 11 (Nearby National Geographic museum, at The Jefferson Hotel) Parking: in DC?? Why, when there is that subway. DO NOT miss this place if you are in the area.

jay english: I've been searching for a good Chicken & Waffles joint & was surprised to find it at this restaurant. Chicken was seasoned very well and has an awesome crisp, satisfies the sweet/savory craving with a nice crunch.
Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to The Greenhouse!

Kiana Yeganeh: The Greenhouse is a beautiful restaurant located in an even more beautiful hotel. The service, however, is mediocre. My boyfriend and I checked in for our brunch reservation 10 minutes early and we were told to have a seat in the lobby until our name was called. 20 minutes later, we still had not been called, so I walked up to the host's desk and reminded them of our now-past reservation. We were seated immediately, without an apology for the delay. It is likely the host forgot about our reservation, and that happens, but waiting service inside the restaurant was also bad. Our waiter barely spoke to us the whole time we were there, and we did not feel welcome at all. The food was average; the plating was disappointing. For a restaurant that looks this good on the outside, the quality of food and service was definitely a letdown. I hope other patrons have a better dining experience at The Greenhouse.

Mark Blanchard: Delicious brunch and beautiful restaurant. Classy high end touches all around.
Response: Thank you!

Caitlyn George: Extremely accommodating. We walked here with the kids from our hotel excited to try a new restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with how kind the staff were to squeeze us in. We will absolutely be sure to make reservations next time now that we know. The staff were friendly and offered special surprises for the kids upon sitting. Made them feel so special. This is a brunch that makes you feel upscale and special. The beakfast foods and drinks are highest quality, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We enjoyed every moment and will absolutely return! The kids loved it and enjoyed feeling fancy for the morning and insist that we go back.
Response: Thank you for your kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed your dining experience at The Greenhouse and hope we can welcome you back again in the future!

G Dalmeida: A return to quiet elegance... The Greenhouse is fine dining for Brunch or Lunch. It felt so nice to enjoy a brunch that wasn’t rushed, or had me waiting 45+minutes to be seated. From the fine China to the very attentive staff and quiet ambiance The Greenhouse at the Jefferson Hotel will briefly make you feel as though you aren’t in Washington, DC but maybe a lovely summer home of a friend overlooking the river. The meal I selected was rather simple and traditional waffles with fresh fruit. They were prepared well not too crunch and definitely not to soft. Too much cream butter and a glaze over the strawberries were the only things I found lacking. But everything else was just perfect . Plenty of hot coffee served in slightly larger cups and a beautiful table sitting. I would recommend The Greenhouse to anyone who appreciates a slightly old school style dining experience. It made me glad I was up on all things Emily Post. (aka dining etiquette).
Response: Thank you for the kind words. We’re glad you enjoyed brunch with us!

Aditya Parikh: Lunch… Food: ***, Service: ****, Ambiance: *****, Value: **. Nice environment, but I won’t be back for lunch. It just isn’t good enough to justify the price when there are better establishments in DC. Might try dinner or breakfast sometime to give them a fair shot.

Sheneze Jones: Good food and great service!

Michelle Wiciak: The food was excellent, although the corned beef hash was extremely salty. I loved the smoked salmon rangoons, and thought it was the highlight of the meal. The biscuits and gravy were also stellar too, and that dish was HUGE. I enjoyed the banana cream pie, but thought the crust was too thick. The only downside was that the place was a bit too loud music-wise and our server seemed disinterested in serving us

Alex teufel: This was the most pleasant restaurant experience I’ve ever had. I am from out of town.First off, they asked if there was any food allergies before taking orders and bringing food, and as a person with a food allergy this was super cool, and something more restaurants should do! Tiffany was a phenomenal waitress, best server I’ve ever had. Polite, and thoughtful staff, short wait, GREAT food. 10/10 recommend!!

Deana Bushell: The Strawberry lemonade was delish...the fried pickles were the perfect starter for our meal.Also had the Chicken Parmesan with a side of Brussel Sprouts with blue cheese and bacon. More than I could eat and very tasty. Great local place with a wonderful atmosphere.

Noah Vaughan: Great place. I've gone by a few times but the wait was always too long (reservations highly encouraged!) so was excited to get in there today. Had the tamarind coated wings to start and they were amazing. Lunch was steak and a Cesar salad, both really good. My only complaint is that I was only a bite or two into my appetizer when my meal and salad arrived. I finished my wings, are my salad, and the steak and fries were cold by the time I got to them. Still good, but would have been even better warm.

Sarah: Delicious entree meals and really the main sell. 5 star for food, 3 star waitress. Will definitely be back for the entree meals because the cooks know what they are doing! I was very excited for the pop tarts but filling is only within the very center of them and it would have been ten times better taste-wise if it was served warm. Service was extremely slow and our waitress did not refill our water glasses and we had to wait an extremely long time to get our bill to leave. Food (excluding dessert) and environment great, but service may need some improvement especially since it was not very busy and we still waited a long time for waitress to come back to the table to ask about dessert and then again to get the bill (1.5 hours for two people to eat).

Charlotte Meindersma (Charlotte's Law): We had a Ted’s tart, which was really good. The dough is soft shortbread cookie like. Fresh iced tea was good. And we tried the loaded tots. Outside seating is really nice. Not all servers are as friendly as we’d hoped for, the girl who helped us most was very helpful and friendly.

Michelle Owen: Fabulous eatery situated in East Market Washington DC...fabulous interior featuring art deco decor. At the back dining g area are many booths, you can even watch old movies from an old projector. The service was terrific, the food excellent and the vibe friendly and happy. The menu was great, not too big, not too small. The coffee was excellent as was my Peach Bellini. It's true...the cinnamon rolls are "as big as ya head".

Amreen Shafiuddin: seemed like a small cafe from outside but they have a indoor seating place for brunch !!! looked like a upscale place.. people were posh there !!! the room had ample sunlight and it was all lit.. the tables were big enough for 6 people to sit comfortably. Our server was sweet and friendly.. people even clicked our photos without us asking for help !!! the food was amazing.. i would give it 15/10… we ordered 5 different dishes.. none disappointed… The big mark breakfast was super filling.. avocado toast was presented well and quite filling as to was on the lighter fair.. the stand out dishes were the Country fried chicken and Grilled salmon !!! omg amazing flavours !!! soooo yummm !! definitely coming back here for eating this again !!!

Cory Schwab: Delicious breakfast! And the homemade pop tart was a nice surprise. Coffee could have been a little stronger but still tasted good!

Scott T: Great general breakfast fare. I had eggs, bacon, gluten free toast, and hash browns. She had avocado toast. Both were excellent, but that's not why you are reading this review. We came here for the homemade pop tarts and they were excellent. They would have been better warm, but because of a lawsuit, that is no longer allowed. The table next to us got the massive cinnamon roll and we decided to get one as well. (Back story, I have a mild wheat allergy which often makes my stomach hurt when I eat wheat. I didn't learn of this until 2021 and had eaten wheat all my life and thought the pain was normal. So I generally avoid wheat, but on certain occasions, will eat it and deal.) The cinnamon roll was the star of the show. It was huge, 4 adults could easily share this. From the photo, you can see my plan... work to the middle. They serve the roll without the icing/sauce and pour it on at the table. Every bite was fabulous, but the middle, oh my the middle, was insanely good. It was so warm and soft, covered in tasty goodness, by far the best roll I've ever eaten. When in DC, take a detour to one of these restaurants locations and grab a pop tart and a cinnamon roll, you won't be disappointed.

Ryan Arnt: I found this place about 20 years ago. I love german food and drinks and they do a very good job. The Hunter's Schnitzel, sausage plate, red cabbage cucumber salad are all great. Kind of a hole in the wall place but I always enjoy eating here on every trip to DC.

WABBA: A good around tasty menu, with well cooked traditional meals including Pork or Chicken Snitzel. Fair priced drinks 🍸 adds to the enjoyable experience. A good dinner choice 1 night whilst you're here in Washington DC.

Vasyl Zhepikov: Hands down the best german food in US. 🇩🇪 It is not cheap imitation , but really good authentic food. Hand made sauercraft. 🤤 On pics: Sausage combo with authentic mustard. Baked brie with jam and fruits. And of course German beer. The interior is the most pleasing to say the least.

Landis Rojas: My first time here! I felt very comfortable. Also I forgot to take food pictures because the german food it was super tasty! The service is super good and attentive. Yo need a reservation in this restaurant and you really feel in s German restaurant! I really Recommend it!

Devin Nguyen: I enjoy Old Europe restaurant for its service, antique atmosphere, and certified-authentic German food! As someone who has visited Germany and Austria, I can confirm that the food is cooked according to traditional German flavors and preparation. The images I have included illustrate the restaurant’s quality and art of German culture and cuisine. My experience at this family-owned business makes me feel as if I entered a time capsule into history.

Mohan Sun: This is one of the best German restaurants in town - excellent food, great beers, and friendly owner and staff. Back before Covid, there was this old gentlemen in suspenders that would always play piano on weekends. That’s always one of my fondest memories. I had my birthday celebrations there a couple of times and they were always a blast. This restaurant veteran opened its doors in 1948 serving local customers, so please come and support them! Plus, you really can’t go wrong with a schnitzel and boot of beer!

K K: Wow! Why haven't I been going here every week? Great food, elevated flavors, friendly service, nice German beer list, bus boy that plays showtimes on the piano...c'mon you can't find this anywhere else in DC! Treated me like a king for Father's day. Wish they had a patio... but that is minor. What a hidden secret.
Response: Hi K K, thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. Please come back and visit us soon!

Sam Chin: A long time local business with good authentic food and warm atmosphere. Amazing steins, cuckoo clock, and crests. They actually speak German and are good people. Support local!!

Darren H: I have been going to this place for about 18 years and love it. The desserts have recently gotten better. I always complained that the Sacher Torte was a tad dry, but this no longer seems to be the case. The appetizers, beer, and dinner are all so good that I have a hard time ordering sometimes.

Rinat Hadashi: We ate dinner: April treat, potato pancakes and schnitzel. Beverage and wine. Paid 92$.The food was tasty and very beautifully placed on the plate. The service was super nice and helpful.Recommended!

Valerie Laub: Absolutely wonderful! The new location is great and the inside is very nice with fun artwork. We celebrated Mother’s Day and had an excellent meal and our server, Miguel was so friendly and accommodating! He made the experience great. The food was delicious and the favorites were the filet & lobster tail, lobster mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts! For dessert, the cheesecake was amazing! We will be back for the next celebration!

Yauchin Lam: I proposed to my girlfriend here and it was the best service here. The steaks were good, the waiters was a good person, the wine was good, and the soup too. After I propose, we got really good tasting desert. Be prepared to spend money, but it is worth the price. I hope to go there again for our future wedding anniversary.

Beebea H: My daughter made a lunch reservation for 4 at the Capital Grille for lunch. We arrived slightly before our time and were seated immediately. Our server, Joharra (I hope I got that right) came over and told us the menu specials and took our drink order. She was friendly and professional. Throughout our meal she came at all the right times. She definitely helped make our time there more pleasant! Soon afterward we gave our drink order, and our bread selection w/butter was brought to the table. The bread was nice and warm, the butter was fresh with salt lightly sprinkled on top. It was very good. Our drinks came soon afterwards, and Joharra took our orders. I ordered the Seared Salmon with Avocado, Mango and Tomato Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette. My fiancé ordered the Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Roasted Garlic, white wine and lemon butter and he also ordered Potatoes Au Gratin as a side. My daughter ordered a special that had steak and a salad, and her boyfriend ordered the Signature Cheeseburger. We ordered calamari for the table as an app. We also ordered 2 crème brûlée , and an espresso flourless cake for dessert. Everything came very promptly. First the calamari. The flavor of the calamari was very good. Whatever it’s breaded with had a nice flavor that complimented the calamari. However, some of the larger clusters of tentacles were somewhat underdone. The breading wasn’t crisp in those clusters, and it had a bit of a wet, unappealing feel in those spots. All of the rings were done perfectly though and they were lightly crisp. My salmon was tasty, but a little overcooked for my taste. I like my salmon cooked to medium with a moist middle so it melts in your mouth. The accompanying salad was really good and perfectly dressed. I don’t like too much dressing and usually ask for it on the side. But this was perfect. My fiancé enjoyed his salmon and his au gratin potatoes, very much. My daughter’s boyfriend enjoyed his burger and said it was done the way he likes it. My daughter had asked for her steak medium rare (the server confirmed deep pink inside with medium pink throughout and my daughter agreed), but I think her steak came more medium or medium well. She seemed to enjoy it regardless and enjoyed the salad too. The desserts were very good. The espresso cake seemed a little too dense at first, but I think it was just a bit cold… we were seated outside (it was very hot that day) and after about 10 minutes the cake was much smoother. A much nicer texture. The espresso flavor was prominent and amazing. The crème brûlées had a rich vanilla flavor and a very satisfying crack when you broke the top, but didn’t have the soft-set, ‘barely holding its shape’ texture it should have. This was almost a custard-like flan, but still very good. Overall we were happy with our meals at the Capital Grille, and the service was perfection, as was the company and atmosphere. We had a wonderful time. I would go back any time we’re in DC. (Just discovered I put this review under the wrong Capital Grille so this is late getting up)

Gentle John: We just had one of the best lunches in a long time. The lobster salad was the best. Outstanding service. Great atmosphere for a business meeting or happy hour. Try it!

Racquelle White: Honestly one of the fanciest restaurants in DC. Not only is the cuisine impeccable, they also have incredible service and a healthy wine cellar. I'd recommend for a fancy date, or celebratory dinner. Price is worth the expense. My only complaint is that I wish it was just a bit more lit because the lights are extremely dim.

Natalia Mednikov: The Capital Grille in Washington is my favorite steakhouse that belongs to this chain. I love everything; location, atmosphere, design, service, food, wine list. You have won my heart and if anyone asks for recommendations I will always be the first to recommend you!

Hannah Grimsley: My boyfriend and I came here last night for his birthday and they truly went above and beyond to make a memorable experience for us. The service was amazing and the food was immaculate. I got the lamb chops and he got the 14oz steak. We will definitely be coming back soon !

Charlie Carroll: This restaurant was absolutely amazing! We went here after getting a tour of the capitol building. I got the Lobster Salad which tasted wonderful. After that I got the cheesecake which was the best I’ve ever had before. I suggest you go here if you want a nicely decorated restaurant with wonderful food.

Mike: My wife and I went here for the first time this past Saturday as our last dinner out before leaving D.C. Francisco made some excellent recommendations and really made our dinner one that we will fondly remember.

Dani Brooks: Came to The Capital Grille for a late lunch after attending the Japanese Street Festival. Man on man was this an experience! The drinks and food were delicious and the service was outstanding. Our waiter, Nathan, was fantastic! The steak was cooked perfectly and the soup I ordered, lobster bisque, was amazing. I would highly recommend eating here if you’re ever in Washington D.C.

BLT Steak D.C.: what do users think?


Jennifer Baxter: Everything from ambiance, service and food - all exquisite. The filet mignon,(not in the pic) melts in the mouth. It was a pleasurable dining experience that we had. We will definitely be back.

Yongdo Lee: Food is top notch. I came for steak but was pleasantly overwhelmed by the fine dining quality of the dishes. However, I did go in for porterhouse steak, which I've been advised to order later (after finishing the appetizer) and been told that they were out of them. That was ok, inventory management is not easy. However as we were walking out of the restaurant, we saw other tables enjoying their porterhouse. Surprise! I'll definitely come back for the food (kudos to the chef) but hope to be able to improve the rating on my next visit.

jasprit Singh: Hi guys. Just tried BLT steak house for a formal business dinner. The restaurant was quiet impressive. Staff was friendly. Ambiance was good. There food was very good and they serve a very nice table bread too. Prices were in the higher range as expected from at a good steakhouse. The only reason they will not get a 5 Star rating is because they were not carrying any Single Malt whiskey above 12 years, generally a 18 year single malt is expected at a high end restaurant. The several round of alcohol that were ordered to the table were messed up and sent back twice. On the whole a great experience and if you are willing to spend top dollars for a good steak I would recommend you try it out.

Ed Weaver: Great atmosphere, delicious food, and exceptional staff. I would have given this 5 stars, but my aged bone in ribeye was a bit dry and over charred for my taste.

DeJuan Price: I wanted to love BLT. I did not. It’s unfortunate because the food was tasty — and more or less consistent with other fine dining steakhouses I’ve been to. However, I was sorely disappointed by the quality of the service. Our waiter seemed to disregard us and was very disconnected from our table and our needs. He never introduced himself; he rushed through answers to questions, made no note of specials or recommendations, and averted eye contact for most of the service. Similarly, the manager was happy to speak to and check in with other guests and patrons but never came to our table. He spent over an hour talking to one guest and never glanced in our direction. I want to believe it was not discriminatory, but for the cost — the level of service to Black patrons in my experience was lacking. Though I enjoyed the food - I will not be going back. Tonight was supposed to be a celebration for a younger cousin and provide her exposure to a high-quality dining experience - it did not meet my expectations or accomplish this goal.

Domenick Grieshaber: Everything was great from start to finish. Service was second to none. More importantly, It’s not just about eating it’s about your dining experience. Marco and his staff made us feel like family. They anticipated our every need. It’s hard to get good service these days, Marco and his staff were on point!

Betty: Food was great. No complaints there but our service was terrible. Our server Lajuan was not attentive. Took us absolutely forever to order dessert. And almost 30 minutes to receive the bill after everyone was clearly done, looking around, waiting. We were here for some birthdays and the table next to us got a special experience where as he just dropped our desserts with a candle and left. Also had some major attitude.

J Mac: The Yorkshire Pudding and Rack of Lamb were FABULOUS. Those foods paired with the locally bewed Hazy IPA made for a marvelous combination that I will certainly recommend and enjoy again. The service was outstanding, even in the face of a crowded "special event".

Chrissy Doe: I love this place and we go here often enough. I was super excited to go after they renovated. The food was amazing as usual and our server was excellent. However, the America wagyu ribeye I ordered medium rare came out medium-med well. I did not return it because we had an even afterwards and I’m just not a return food sort of person. I will go here again, but to spend 90+ on a steak that’s over cooked felt like a waste. Everything else was exceptional as usual.

Jillian Woods: My friend and I just ate here with her 6 month old in tow and we could not have had better, friendlier service. Lajuan was our server and he went above and beyond, catering to our needs before we even had to ask. Thank you BLT for an outstanding experience!

Sandeep Wilkhu: Excellent experienceWe sat in the bar because we did not have reservations. But our waitress Addison was so very excellent she made it an excellent experience. I would go back to the bar seating.

Charli Knows How To Eat: A very good friend of mine treated me to this very fancy dining experience. It was so amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for special events or celebrations. It is quite expensive however the service is great and the food is even better. I convinced my date that I’d like my own steak however I did not know they give you such large portions which is a first to see in a upscale restaurant like this. Nonetheless it was so tender and evenly cooked I ate every single piece !

raymond burgos: The service and hospitality are on par with the best in the world with amiable and capable staff. The presentation and food are excellent. The decor is well-suited to a high-end establishment and will make you break into a smile as soon as you walk in. The portions are good, not more significant portions - this is a tasting restaurant. Quality over quantity!

Kyana Shelton: Ambiance was stunning. Very classy and modern I love the simplicity of the place. Valet is cash only! Bread for the table was delicious. I ordered the shrimp scampi and my boyfriend ordered the chicken parmesan both a 10/10. My shrimp scampi was a small portion but besides that I had no complaints and actually left feeling pretty full. Can't remember the name of the wine I had but I believe our waiter said it had a hint of oyster. Overall, amazing experience with a sophisticated look I will be back!

Des KF: My boyfriend and I had reservations for this restaurant for my birthday. When we arrived we walked in and was greeted by the hostess and she sat us. The tables were super close to one another which was the only downfall. Tim was our waiter and he was so nice and attentive. We started with drinks and I got the Spritz and Giggles, it was weak but it was tasty. For my entrée I got the king crab with squid ink pasta and that was good. My boyfriend got the shrimp scampi pasta and he really enjoyed it. Tim gave us a cheesecake because we waited for a while to get drinks and that was so nice and it was so tasty. I also slid in that it was my birthday and he gave me a small, cute dessert to sing happy birthday. I really enjoyed my time, the ambiance was great and so was the food and service.

Lin Dinh: dim, upbeat ambiance with upscale cocktails— perfect spot for a bourgeois night out. plates were tapas size but the perfect portions. the mushroom pizza was by far the best pizza I’ve ever had. the short ribs were also superb. love it here!

MADDART: It was my first time dining here. I ordered a New York strip which was about 16 ounces.(a lot bigger than I expected from an upscale restaurant. It was cooked perfectly and had lots of flavor. The server was a bit forgetful about a couple requests I had made for pepper and silverware. I had to ask several times. Other than that the setting was great and I enjoyed my time there.

H. Ibdah: Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere. We went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The waiter was theatrically impressive. The food was outstanding. We tried many dishes, I only took a photo of the main courses. I highly recommend the octopus for a starter. For the main we had the lobster pasta, meatballs, steak and side dishes. Great for romantic dinners and for outing with friends.

john Dickerson: Reservation required, proof of covid vaccination with ID valet available $20. Service was outstanding John was our waiter, and he did a great job everything was swift and on time. The food was delicious, for appetizers we Truffled Garlic Bread Parmigiano-reggiano, 1/2 dozen half Shell oyster, truffle and parmesan cheese pizza, Big Eye Tuna Bruschetta Basil Aioli garlic toast, the main was Lobster Fra DiavolobCalabrian chili & tomato and Short Rib Bolognese Pappardelle, Rosemary. For dessert we had Tiramisu Whipped mascarpone & coffee.

Imani: The decor was nice. We liked our dishes but were not a fan of how soft the meatballs were. The plates were also small. We started off with a spritz for our drinks but sent it back because it was very sweet. We ordered a Paloma instead which was very delicious. The reasons for the star decrease was the hostess. We asked if we could move our table and she tried to explain the seating arrangements but made a condescending remark by saying “does that make sense” with a slight attitude which was very noticeable by the both of us.

Zaytinya by José Andrés: what do users think?


Tilak Kalaria: Had an excellent experience at Zaytinya by Jose Andres. The food was very tasteful and unique. The cocktails were delicious and so was the wine. The menu was expansive so our large group decided on a tasting menu and it was awesome. The tasting menu was vast for the price, we got to try a little big of everything and it all tasted great. Service was slow at the beginning but after we got our first round of drinks the attention to detail picked up. I would normally comment on the dishes I really enjoy but I tried so many things it would be hard to choose. Definitely a spot to check out for some Mediterranean cuisine and I highly recommend it.

Maria Rock: Wow! 🎶 Everything was fantastic. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed such a wonderful meal. We had a reservation for an afternoon lunch. Upon arrival, we were greeted and seated immediately. The wait staff was courteous and efficient. We let our daughter, Julia, order for our table; everything she suggested was delicious and cooked to perfection. The pacing of the dishes was nice as well; a few dishes were brought out at a time. We weren’t rushed and plates were cleared away between courses. We were there just over an hour and even had dessert. I can’t wait to go again. ✨

Julia Cheung: Food is really fresh and the portions are decent. But it’s a crowded and loud restaurant and when we got to the table for four, which we had reserved, I couldn’t even fit into my seat and I’m not overweight. They had to shift the table for me. Then the food just didn’t fit onto the table top. Since it’s small plates, I would expect there to be more space for all the small plates to fit. The vibe and decor is pretty cool, but I just expected a more polished experience for the price. That said, the food is really well flavored and fresh and I would go back if I were looking for a convenient happy hour place or just needed to meet up with someone. But not for a special occasion.

Yuntian Lu: The food was absolutely amazing! We ordered several small plates and my favorite were the seared halloumi and the taramosalata (cured carp roe spread - trust me, you will think this is ice cream if no one tells you this is fish egg in the first place). Although the portion was small, they were not pricey and we were able to try many different options. The server was very friendly and made recommendations for our first visit. I’d definitely come back and recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in cuisines around the Mediterranean region.

Alicia Bentley: Delicious outdoor lunch during Restaurant Week! Plenty of heaters. Very attentive service staff. They were great with my gluten-free friend. The only issue was the water spilling off the side of the tent, but that didn't affect everyone sitting outside. Only the unlucky few near the edge! Highly recommended.

Gene Farberov: Great restaurant, always packed, reservation recommended. The food is really good its a mixed Greek, Lebanese and some other country kitchen by a celeb chef. The food was really good, the presentation and the taste is a must try for sure. We got good service and really liked our waiter, he made some recommendations on the cocktails which we enjoyed. I will be back on my next trip to Washington DC.

Djordjiana Buric: Mediterranean restaurant by famous Jose Andres, with authentic music in an open high ceiling beautiful space. Food has special spices and therefore different tastes. Warm tin bread with dipping in olive oil to start. Ship with garlic , octopus is delicious so is the chicken soup not traditional taste but different with lemon and egg. Great to try all these completely different tastes. Service is kind but a bit slow so make sure you are not in a rush. Once ordered food comes quickly.

Lyl Rose: I’m a huge fan of JA and determined to eat at every restaurant he has if possible. This was the third I’ve tried when visiting DC. Definitely did not disappoint! Everything top notch. Nice non alcoholic beverage selection. Fresh ingredients in unique dishes bursting with flavor and richness. Can’t go wrong. Service was great. Decent portions and reasonably priced. Easy to eat too much! One day I’ll save room for dessert.

Genesis Christina: This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Washington DC, my fiance and I were so fortunate to stumble across this place. We tried the tasting menu and it was so amazing that we went back on our last day to try more entrees. The service is unmatched and the servers make some great recommendations. Definitely would recommend this cute spot!

Nik Lathia: Wonderful restaurant! The food was fantastic start to finish. We loved all the mezze dishes and the kebab meats were so well done. The Pides were also delicious. We tried multiple cocktails and they were all very good. My favorite dessert was the chocolate rose. Our server was very polite and friendly as well. Can't wait to come back for round two!

San Lorenzo: what do users think?


Allie Bluhm-Whitley: We had a fantastic dinner at San Lorenzo! The service was fantastic and extremely caring. We were unable to get a table during our reservation time, which was already not a problem because they have a lovely bar to eat at, but the manager Christina took special care of us because of the inconvenience. The food was spectacular and dessert was perfect. I can’t wait to return!

M Trev: Fantastic!! Easy to walk past but you'll regret it if you do. Easy to reserve on OpenTable and a true Italian gem! Full bar, flawless service and food - every time. Everything is authentic from.the rustic crusty breads to the handmade pastas. A great place for a quiet dinner. Consider taking Uber as parking isn’t great in this part of town.

Greg Young: Dinner with friends in from NYC, did not disappoint. Intimate space and delicious food. You could not avoid a delicious choice on the menu—we tried the veal, rabbit ragu pappardelle and halibut entrees and had calamari and squash blossoms starters. So very good.
Response: Greg, thank you so much!

Dawson Brunswick: San Lorenzo and its staff were great. The truffle mushroom tortellini was absolutely amazing. The portion size was just right for lunch. There was a nice crowd at lunch time, but I was able to be seated right away and the service was very timely. Would definitely return when in the area.

Philip Pena: If you’re looking for great food, phenomenal service, nice vibes, look no further. I admit, the outside facade looks kind of questionable but once you get inside, it’s gorgeous, the staff are beyond friendly - I received multiple free dishes (I was moving into the neighborhood and got free desert) — also do yourself a favor and get SQUASH BLOSSOMS. Unreal. Carrot and ginger soup was the weirdest creation I’ve ever heard but the most delectable, light, tasty, soup my lips have ever had the privilege of interacting with. — SAN LORENZO is best Italian in Shaw. Don’t walk, RUN!

Simoní Schmidt: Adorable restaurant! The food is amazing, a little bit overpriced, but very tasty. The service is very good! Bianca was super kind and adorable! We had Bruschetta, Pappardelli and Tortelli. And for dessert, Bianca suggested us a great cheesecake!

Rachel S: San Lorenzo is a gem of a restaurant. Every time I dine here I am reminded how lucky I am to live so close to this place! The lunch sandwiches were a wonderful treat during my work from home days, and I was pleased to see them on the menu when I last went in for a business lunch. I have never had a bad meal here. The bread, pasta, fish, desserts, drinks, and everything else are lovely. Do your self a favor and book a table for a quiet and delicious meal in the heart of DC.

Wood Privacy: I had been looking forward to coming here for quite a while and finally decided to make a reservation. The Good: The peach Gespacho special appetizer was lovely for a hot summer evening as was the Fiori Di Zucca appetizer. My wife ordered a special veal ravioli, which was lovely. Also nice was the wine selection. The Bad: The Pappardelle pasta was nothing to rave about after tasting my wife's pasta. I made the mistake of ordering the special lamb chops. Just two of them mind you. Not only were they some of the toughest, most tasteless lamb chops I've ever eaten, they charged me $60 for them! I couldn't believe it when I saw the check! Needless to say this place is mediocre for the price. I live around the corner and will never return. One and done. Maybe $30 for the two lamb chops and I would have considered giving repeat business but now they'll never get another dime out of me as a matter of principle. There are plenty of places in DC that offer better Italian food and far better value. But if you want to throw your money away for mediocre food, then sure, dine here!

D G: Phenomenal food! Called to make a reservation for 8 on a busy Saturday night, around 2 weeks before said dinner. Christina from San Lorenzo was super helpful in talking through the food options and what the dinner would entail. Everything we ate was amazing, and because it was a fixed priced course, had plenty of food for everyone. Top notch Italian food in a funny little spot.

Hong Lin: My friend and I had an amazing time at this restaurant! Our bartender, Emily, was attentive and gave us wonderful recommendations. The mango & passionfruit cheesecake was amazing, and the truffle tortelli and lobster risotto were also lovely.

Catherine Ekman: French toast has chicken served right on top Of it. Mushy and lack of flavor in French toast. Chicken is tender but also flat flavor. Onion rings are burnt and lack flavor. Looks like the kind you buy frozen and fry. Soda machine broken. Milkshake was delightful, sweet and creamy! All of the tables are peeling finish on wood tops. The bench seat upholstery is cracked and peeling. All the vents in the top of the dining room are fuzzy with dusty ick. The waitress and host are very nice. Too bad the food isn’t as stellar as it could be, such a good trendy location and updated historic location.
Response: Hi Cathrine! I'm sorry to hear you were dissatisfied with your meal. We are always working to improve our menus, and new items are added regularly. I hope you'll give us another try in the future!

Regina Hogan: Willy at The Diner was so awesome! Excellent customer service. The fish tacos and cherry blossom shake were amazing! Got a table outside in the shade. Very satisfied, will definitely be back!
Response: Thank you so much, Regina :-). Glad to hear you enjoyed everything!

Greg Page: I'm a professional hitman and a hearty, nutritious meal is an important part of my regimen. Right up there with cleaning my gun. Anyway, I always stop by The Diner for some good eats and some friendly banter with my fellow hitmen colleagues. Great crowd; nobody likes hanging around with a bunch of stiffs. I always order the Monte Cristo, because who doesn't love a ham and cheese sandwich on French Toast? Yum. Anyway, the waitstaff is great and I love the old style booths. Lots of privacy, which is important in my line of work. 👍

Megan Bennett: Went to this place while visiting DC with my boyfriend. The food was amazing and the service was even better! Our waitress (wish I could remember her name) was awesome and very accommodating. Will definitely visit again when I’m in DC!

Pandora White: It was amazing. I went at a crowded time on a Saturday. I managed to snag a seat at the bar. The portions are nice. The price is amazing. The service fast. I recommend this.

Fernando Martinez: One of my go to spots when I'm hungry. It's smack dab in the middle of #AdamsMorgan which is a area in Washington DC where you can find all types of great food. This area is known for its international mixture which is awesome in so many ways.
Response: Thanks, Fernando!

Des KF: On the way into DC my boyfriend and I wanted to stop at this spot for lunch. When we arrived it took a little time to find parking. When we walked in they told us we can sit anywhere. Emmanuel was our server and he was good. We started with cocktails and I got the Bonecrusher and it was tasty. For my meal I got the chicken sandwich and it was so good! The aoli was very tasty that they added. My boyfriend got the Diner Royale and he enjoyed his meal. The bill came to about $52. We enjoyed and would return.
Response: Thanks, Des!

Levnon: Not a bad place to grab a bite. They got a good selection for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Quality is good, and so is the service.
Response: Thanks, Levnon!

Paula Ramirez: This place never disappoints me! The food is so delicious! I ordered the Ponderosa omelette and it was just perfect! We ordered the migas and wow so delicious! We also ordered a burger and it was cooked to perfection! If you want to enjoy great food at a reasonable price here in DC you def need to stop by the Diner!
Response: Thanks, Paula!

Barb O: Just terrific! Exactly what you look for in a diner… quick service, (thank you Tamika!) delicious and plentiful food at a good price, friendly staff.

The Capital Burger: what do users think?


Chris Dalton: Had an excellent experience. Hostess was friendly and realized I was a party of 1 and let me know the bar was open seating. Bartender was amazing, welcomed me to the establishment and went over the menu with me as I was a first time patron. I ordered the capitol burger with truffle fries. I don't eat pickles, but their house pickles are amazing. A little on the pricey side but well worth it. If you are looking for a gourmet burger with a fun/upscale atmosphere this is your spot. They also have a wide selection of whiskeys, bourbons and scotchs. Would highly recommend.

Kelly Lee: Great atmosphere but pricey food. Burgers were soso, appetizers were more delicious. My server wasn't attentive either. I'm only giving it 4 stars because of the atmosphere at the restaurant. They have variety of drinks menu. Other than burger, its only salad and other sandwiches. Pickles were delicious by the way.

Laetitia Monnier: Really good burger ! I’m not usually a fan of burger but these gourmet burgers are just to die for !! The patty is so juicy and so big ! And the truffle Parmesan fries are just incredible (and yes you can actually taste the truffle) ! Their milkshakes are delicious too and can’t wait to go back and try their boozy shakes. Our waiter was amazing too. He was super nice and super helpful. He helped us choose the best options for our burgers and he made our time quiet enjoyable !

Jenni James: This is an awesome place just located up the street from Capital Arena and Chinatown. The burgers are amazing. A great place for both non-alcoholic and other drinks. I had the homemade Grapfruit Soda. I loved the atmosphere. I would say a great place for older kids as it draws a more older crowd.

Frankie Painter: I was craving a delicious burger but didn’t want to walk far since it was freezing. This place was phenomenal! First of all, they bring you their special pickles to munch on while you wait (how awesome and unique is that) and then —- the most amazingly juicy, perfectly cooked burger arrives! It was so delicious that I forgot to take a photo but mine had bacon and Gorgonzola cheese, lettuce and tomato. My husband loved his as well. Our waitress was super attentive and friendly. We did have to show ID and proof of vaccination to dine in. SO WORTH IT!!!

Syerra Carigo: I visited with my nephew last week after the car show. This restaurant is literally right across the street from the DC convention center. It was pretty packed when we arrived but we were still seated right away. There’s not much social distancing going on inside as the tables are right near each other, but they do check your vaccination card for those (12?) and over. All the staff were hospitable! This place definitely has good vibes! My burger and drink were amazing, I have no complaints! My 6 year old nephew did lol. He ordered a kids burger and it’s literally a slider. Not 2, not 3, 1 burger slider and some fruit or fries. I ended up taking him somewhere else afterwards as he was still hungry. Other than that, I have no complaints. The food is great, the facility is clean, and the staff were great! I’d definitely return!

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Enjoyed a really great lunch here today. I started with their clam chowder which was really well balanced in terms of flavors and not too heavy. I then had a kale salad with a light vinaigrette to cleanse my palette (and guilt) for what was to come next. The Capital burger, the restaurant's eponymous featured dish, is superb. It's a French onion-style take on a classic burger: caramelized onions, Wisconsin Grand Cru Gruyère, and shallot aioli on an overly generous 8 oz patty. Last, I had to try a taste of one of their spiked shakes. I let it be the dealer's choice and they served me a delicious Irish whiskey shake, made with Jameson's, Kahlua, Bailey's, and Kona dust. It was definitely worth the try, quite heavenly but surprisingly not too sweet. Service was great, very polished and friendly. Decor was nice too. Their bathroom needs work though.. Definitely recommended, even if for the burger alone.

Danny Holstein: Hearty foods with decent, healthy-ish options. Don't bother with breakfast though, way over-priced for what you get. The burgers are priced for the area, not a bargain, but I care more for quality than "value". The burgers are juicy and messy, and that's what makes them delicious! A salad is a normal option to fries and a perfect compliment to the juicy burger - the avocado was a special request on my part, though I recommend you ask for it too. Waitstaff are eager and competent, if young and inexperienced. I'd give them 5 stars but for their breakfast.

Ma D: Very nice place. The burger is awesome. Stuff is so polite. I like ower guy with beard who took our order. Cracking a good jokes. He offered to bring separate bills. Such a good as I don't need share equal as I order less hahaha. Anyway good place to have a good food.

Rebeca Martinez: Fantastic burgers! We ordered three different burgers all were so different, but great. Although it was a bit pricey so worth it. Service was super. When we visit the city again definitely going to revisit Capital Burgers.

BlackSalt: what do users think?


Anna S: Always delectable! I have been to BlackSalt on many occasions, and the service is always fantastic. This visit was no different from my previous visits. It is the experience you expect with fine dining. From the oysters, to my entree of red snapper with truffle sauce, the food could not have been better! (And I didn’t think I would like the truffle sauce at all! I was so glad I was wrong.) I will, of course, be back again.

JustHereForTheKarma: This was hands down the best seafood I've had in the metro area, it's pricey, but definitely worth it. Only downside was the waiter service was next to non-existent, but the was only one waiter for a while, so that can be forgiven. The folks cleaning up the tables were super fast though, so it was more a matter of putting the order in and dessert ordering. Still worth it.

Christina: Wonderful seafood place! Fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked. We’re just visiting from overseas but would definitely come back if we lived in the area.

Joyce Y: First day in DC , we were hungry and excited to try this place. The oyster selection is good and I would come for oysters alone! The dishes are decent too but my seabass tasted very different from any other seabass I’ve had. The texture was so firm that I felt it was a disappointment. We didn’t like the menu selection for the entree but they pretty much did whatever fish my kids asked for, very flexible with us.

cesarnews4: Customer service at its best. This place has it all. Amazing food, great atmosphere, attention to detail, clean and cozy. My wife loves this place. I made a reservation for her birthday. The restaurant printed out a special menu with the date and a line saying “happy birthday” for our table .. Customized menus for us. How special is that??? After COVID many restaurants lost customer service , attention to detail. It seems like most restaurants are running short staff and it shows on the service level. NOT BLACKSALT This place has it together. Another example. When they brought our food, the ladies on the table get their plate 1st , then everyone else after. We noticed those details. That’s why they deserve 5 starts . Simply put, quality with taste. I highly recommend it . Plus the food is amazing

A. Manka: Well executed food with great flavor! Also received teamwork approach who met our needs and made our experience smooth and relaxing. We have been coming for years.

Meme Smith: It was nice last min plan, first time having Caviar. Would had been nice to know the key notes of the Caviar before I had ordered....the drink was not great I had ordered Cocgnac cocktail that was ruined with a lemon. But over all it was nice I would try it again

David Hosey: Friendly atmosphere. Food was decent but the petit tower wasn’t as fresh as we would have hoped. Overall good experience

Floyd Le Vere II: Best tuna I ever had in my 42 years. Who knew peanut sauce went with mangos and noodles?? Dear God, praise this place, and me, so I can come BACK!

Steve O: The host was great and our waitress started off as a little cold but, then we found out she was the only one there. The calamari was Grrrreeeeaaaattt, especially the bread it was served on
