Sequoia DC: what do users think?


Ashley Emtcheu: The food is delicious, the place is decorated beautiful with Christmas decorations besides its classy and upscale look. Wasn't able to try a drink I was recommended to try by the server but overall great experience. Place is located in a great location which is great if your wanting to get great photos with friends/family. Parking Garage is 2 minutes away in walking distance to this restaurant which is very convenient. 👍🏾

Zuleirys Santana Rodriguez: Amazing customer service! The outdoor dining is just soo extremely gorgeous, spacious and clean in every way. You have a lovely view of the water, the Sweden Embassy, and just the river! The food was just next level, specially the octopus that was cooked to perfection and I will certainly have it again when I come back to bring my boyfriend.

IamJoedie S: This was my first time and the experience was awesome. We came for a birthday dinner. A party of 12 arriving at 5 PM on a Sunday. We had two servers they were on top of everything. There was never a moment a glass was empty. Food service was quick hot and absolutely delicious. I had the steak was absolutely surprise when the potato came out with macaroni and cheese…must order if, no when you come. If you’re looking for a sexy restaurant to have a brunch, lunch and or dinner this is definitely the spot it overlooks the water great date spot. I will definitely come back again. Next time for the brunch. I hear that it is phenomenal. Come. Eat. Drink. Enjoy!

jen w: I gave this 3 stars because of a couple reasons first we had a reservation Saturday at 1:30 pm for their tapas brunch. They were super slow getting our food to us at the beginning. We ordered two rounds of food before the waitress came back and told us it was last call. We were barely there an hour. There is a 2 hour limit, I feel that if they have reservations till a certain hour they should allow the two hour minimum for people. It’s 64.95 per person they aren’t doing a favor for anyone. Next we chose to sit inside and it was obnoxiously loud. There was a group of people that were talking and screaming to each other, while I’m glad they were having a good time management should have asked them to simmer down because all the rest of us could to was watch them because u couldn’t talk for the noise. Having said all that, the food was very good. We opted for Bellinis and Mimosas. They were very good. The waiters walked around with carafes of Champagne and refilled you. My glass never got empty. I would go back here but make an earlier reservation and in cooler weather where I could it on the patio so I don’t have to deal with the noise.

Renee McCracken: Mother's Day Brunch at Sequoia has now become our new tradition. The food was excellently prepared and the service was outstanding. The entertainment was a great addition to our experience. I did have one hiccup during our time there but it was promptly handled and it was like it never happened. I love Sequoia and will definitely recommend and return.

Vy H.: Came here recently Saturday night for a private holiday event—had a great time! The restaurant is huge and beautifully decorated to fit the Christmas/Holiday theme. We had open bar—they have a huge selection of liquor! Food was decent—the hors d'oeuvres were delicious, the main dishes were just okay. Staff are all pretty friendly. There’s a coat check room downstairs when you enter, and an elevator if you don’t want to walk up all the stairs.

John Varkey: We came for an anniversary dinner. The hostesses were a bit surly and disinterested but our waiter was great. The views are fabulous. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the lobster scampi. They were both fabulous but according to my wife the lobster had the edge. We went for a nice stroll along the water and around Georgetown after dinner. A very nice evening was had.

Kat B: Loved this place so much. My partner and I came here for our anniversary, not only was the view beautiful but the energy/service of the staff was amazing . The food was spectacular, definitely get the burrata if they have it ! We were pretty full but still made room for dessert and an espresso which was also delicious . Definitely recommend for a date night/ celebration . Prices were in line with the portions/ambiance .

Crystal Sings: Beautiful simply Beautiful 💜My daughter and I brought my mom to last Saturday’s brunch for her 80th birthday and we really enjoyed the service, food, and ambiance of the restaurant. George, our waiter was awesome and made our experience so memorable! Thank you George!

elizabeth rose: Visiting from florida and this restaurant was highly recommended by locals and im delighted i took their advice! The atmosphere was great, very inviting and scenic, indoor and outdoor seating offered with a nice view of the river. food was really good and exceeded expectations and the server Dominique went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our experience :)

The Lafayette: what do users think?


Laura Xu Chen: Second time back in DC for a weekend and we are in Hay Adams again after 10 years. The food never disappoints and in fact everything was superb! Rack of lamb and Crab gnocchi were excellent. You have to order the soufflé! The ambiance was fine dining yet the wait staff are so warm and pleasant! We stayed for a 3 hour dinner and it was a beautiful and elegant experience

Adam Galazka: Amazing restaurant located in the Hay Adams hotel. Reservations were done via Google and confirmed by the restaurant a couple days in advance. Table was ready 45 minutes in advance. Their customer service from initial greeting through the whole dinner was amazing. Very good wine menu and you also have a cocktail menu as well. We tried a mushroom soup and octopus for appetizers. Ordered chicken breast and bronzini for main course. For our dessert we had creme Brule. Everything was amazing and tasty. We will definitely come back.

波。真秀ᶘ oᴥoᶅ: We went to the Lafayette for breakfast. Our waiter, Emmanuel, was extremely friendly, humorous and attentive. The French Toast came with hot maple syrup and the Lafayette Eggs Royale were accompanied by hollandaise sauce, which blended well with the rich salmon and eggs.

Shawni McGraw: We decided on this restaurant to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary because of the spectacular views and ambience. When we found out that the view we were seeking was not available, the manager went above and beyond to get a private tour of just that view. He wanted our day to be special and he did just that. The food was fabulous and everyone is so customer focused. The mood was romantic with the live piano player and decor. I highly recommend this restaurant for your special day.

CRPARK LLC: Fine dining at its best. After graduation dinner with great down town DC vibe. Service was superior and the environment, on point.

Jenovie Yoka: The food was really good and tasty. The prices are also fair but I did not like the service at all. Furthermore, it was simply awful! The servers that had us that night( a man and a lady) were just not professional and welcoming at all. The were working like they were forced to take care of us. We reserved the private room for a special occasion (my sister engagement) and those two servers made us have a very bad experience. Especially the lady when it can to the moment to pay the restaurant bill. In the other hand the meals and the drinks were simply amazing!

Michael O'Reilly: **FUTURE VISITORS: THEY NO LONGER DO ROOFTOP DINING** This is a fantastic restaurant in a fantastic hotel, but they no longer do anything on the roof. The roof is now reserved for events and such, which is truly disappointing. What’s the point in going anymore? The ambience of the restaurant is nice, but not nice enough to justify going. The food is great, but there are better, cheaper options throughout DC. It is all fairly expensive as well, and for what? One of the main reasons to go was for the wonderful view, but if I no longer have access to that, then the Lafayette is no longer a #1 choice.

Stacy: Good but too expensive. The servers were all so friendly and helpful. It was unbelievably fancy. You are clearly paying for the experience.

Eduardo Rukos: Beautiful & very well executed French inspired menu with a lot of highlights. The staff was amazing and the desserts are pieces of art.

Mark Blanchard: Hands down the most beautiful venue in DC (at least when it was up on the top floor through the pandemic). Great food, great view from the top floor, and friendly staff.

Seasons: what do users think?


Pooja Varma: This place is amazing, the hotel is beautiful and the food is just as impressive. Fresh and tasty and great service! I would highly recommend stopping by Seasons for lunch if you are able to. Shared a quick lunch with my brother but I will definitely make time to be back again soon!

Fernando Catala: I have been going to brunch to the Four Seasons in Georgetown for years now, the best buffet in DC second to none. Expensive? Yes, but worth every penny, excellent food quality, superb service, and very nice vibe. Today we celebrated Mother’s Day with my wife, kids and two other families, party of eleven. Regrettably, the experience was far from what we have been accustomed to before. For starters coming down the stairs to the lower level where the brunch is served, we found that the serving stations were set up in what had previously been the lounge area outside the dining room. Here, traffic from all directions converged in what looked like a food fair in a cheap hotel. People like us arriving, others leaving, the majority roaming around trying to decide what to get from the much more limited options presented for the occasion, and do I dare to mention the comings and goings to the restrooms located almost like an integral part of the offering right there next to the food stations. Totally distasteful. Enter the dining room and you will only see a couple of food stations and lots of crumbled tables very close to one another. Obviously a very busy scene where priority was given to headcount and bottom line over quality. The dessert room remained located where it was before, but consistent with what we saw with the food, it lacked many of the wonderful choices previously displayed. A very poor experience overall, will not repeat. One thing they continue to consistently do is to charge a very steep price per person. I am no longer able to justify paying these prices for such a lame excuse for a luxury brunch.

Bita Motesharrei: Way Overpriced. Food wasn’t impressive. $34 hamburger and they bring you sprite in a can. $28 chicken tasted burnt. Salad had a smoky dressy also $26! When I told the waiter he brought me a small Cesar. 14$ truffle fries was burnt and he told me those black pieces were truffles, they were burnt! Not happy. Will not go back there.

Andrew Flittner: What a great experience! A wonderful place to have brunch with friends. There's a TV on one side so you don't miss any sports. There's a nice patio. The food is amazing. This is a perfect place for a very nice brunch. I would suggest making reservations for big holidays and events as I'm sure it fills up quickly. The dessert room.... (That's right they have a whole room for desserts) is on point. Wow! I have attached pictures of our trip. Make sure you see the Audemars wall clock.

Brian Sharnick: The food at Seasons does not disappoint. The brunch is phenomenal and the options are amazing. The service and staff are some of the best in the industry. They are incredibly attentive and don’t let your drinks run dry and are there as soon as you need them. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

Sam Y.: Amazing spot for breakfast and for spotting celebrities.

Yolanda Stevenson: Very much over priced ….won’t be back I could have door dashed for all that… I see why I never heard of it

Art Hahn: The Sunday brunch was a disappointment. I was sure this was a safe bet but was so wrong. The service was great but it was really hot and the food buffet was sad. It was 85 degrees and at first it seemed okay that the windows were all open. Unfortunately it became very hot and humid. At the least, I would have expected the air conditioning to remain on to counter the outdoor heat. The buffet only had 3 types of pastries!! It was like the choices at a cheap hotel continental breakfast. There was no fresh bread choices for toast; no bagels; and the only bread was some small slices of toasted white bread which was really crunchy. The salad bar was good but had less things to choose from than any I have seen in some time. The deserts were good but the flan was made with Ricotta cheese which is basically a short-cut. For the $100+ price per person, I expected much more. There are so many really good high-end places I considered but unfortunately made the wrong choice.

e j: Extremely overrated, especially for the price. There are many other brunch spots I’d recommend for a special occasion before this one. Took my parents there for their 50th anniversary. Selection was limited and they sat us 20 minutes late for our reservation. The buffet setup is inelegant and it’s difficult to maneuver around to the various stations because of how the dining room is set up. Many desserts were no longer available by the time we got to that point in our meal, which was disappointing because my mom lives for dessert. I contacted the Four Seasons over a month ago about our experience and have yet to receive a response. The only reason I give two is because the dessert setup was quite beautiful.

Brenda Green: A friend of mine and I go up once a month to have our hair refreshed at GEORGE, the salon that is next to the Four Seasons. We leave extra early in the morning so that we can enjoy breakfast at SEASONS. It is more than a treat for us, it is healing. The food is fine, the pork sausages are my favorite, but it is the symphony of the decor and staff and food that make it so enjoyable. Mohammed is usually our waiter and he is genuinely personable and always a pleasure . I can't say enough about him though the whole staff go out of their way to be superb from the moment that you walk in the door.

Firefly: what do users think?


Sadhana G: Went to this beautiful place for brunch on a Sunday. The food was a whole new level of excitement! Presentation and quality of the food and the good ambience set the right tone for the weekend. But the only setback was the price. We had an Egg frittata, chicken and waffles and Egg Benedict-crab ( the chef special) and it cost us 70$. A great place to grab finger food in a cute setting !

Garner Marshall: Excellent breakfast spot. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Parking is pretty scarce around the area. Staff is excellent. Good is delicious. Music is diverse. Location is convenient. This is going to be one of my new favorite breakfast spots.

Steven Power: Wonderful location and the food is pretty good. The prices are very high. Brunch for two with no drinks besides one cup of black coffee was $50 for one order of French Toast, one Avocado Toast, and a side of fruit. The service was good overall, but one small thing annoyed me somewhat. We were there for Saturday brunch so I ordered a cup of black coffee right when the waitress first came over. The coffee, which they charged $5 for, finally came a minute before our food. I drank it quickly, thinking that for $5 for a tiny cup, a refill would be in order. No such luck. I don't know if asking for a refill would have taken another 20 minutes and cost another $5, but at that point in the meal, I didn't bother. Overall, a solid 5-stars. The location and ambiance outside are really great.

Mariia Sarlayan: Wonderful food, amazing service, beautiful interior, pleasant vibe. A bit pricey for brunch but worth it. I wish more tables outside had umbrellas for shades but even then the experience was memorable.
Response: Mariia, We are definitely wowwed by your amazing review and grateful for your comments. I hope we'll see you again soon, for another memorable experience! Please be safe and well until then. Sincerely, Anastasiia Firefly General Manager

Kim S: The food, service, and ambiance were excellent! My only disappointment was that they weren't open for dinner Sundays because we were looking forward to going back.

Linden Yee: Solid brunch, overall recommend. The eggs on the benedict were pretty undercooked but the flavors were good, and the chicken and waffles were really well seasoned. Service was pretty slow, and the staff seemed to be up against a lot. While the waiter was great, they appeared to be the only one working the entire restaurant.

Khadija Khan: The restaurant has changed a lot since the last time I was here! Really friendly staff and nice ambiance! My favorite was the peanut butter and jelly French toast with the jalapeño honey! It’s an Interesting combo but I really liked it. Our server recommended a really yummy mocktail! The food was a little pricey so I’m not sure if I’ll be visiting again any time soon, but the dishes were innovative and delicious.
Response: Khadija, Thank you for the great review and the photos you shared from your recent visit at Firefly. Love to hear the our food and service left a great impression. I do hope you'll come abck again soon. Warmest Regards, Anastasiia, General Manager, Firefly

idcwhatcoloritis: This had to be an off night cause the place was interesting. The old arcade games were cool and our waitress did her best with a terrible situation. Two of our three meals were barely warm at best and cold at worst. The other was basically frozen salmon from a grocery store on what looked like Couscous but was actually rice some how. They nuked our food in the microwave and brought it back out. The vegan burger both smelled and tasted like fish. Completely inedible. All in all, the food was terrible all around. The only plus to this experience was the owner who took both meals off our bill and bought us a round of shots to make up for it after there POS system went down. We saw at least 10 plates go back to the kitchen while we were there. I don’t think this is normal cause most of the people there seemed like regulars and were super confused by there food. I think it was an off night but I don’t think any of my group will be returning.
Response: Greetings, Thank you for your feedback I just would like to double check, is this review for Firefly Restaurant located at 1310 New Hampshire Ave NW Washington DC. We don’t have old arcade games at our restaurant. Thank you Anastasiia Hehelska Restaurant GM

Lisa Mayberry: Cute little place for brunch out of the way in a hotel down New Hampshire Street. Outside patio seating is nice for a cool day with the umbrella up.
Response: Lisa, Thank you for your recent visit to Firefly and the excellent review. We could not agree more, the Terrace is a great place to relax, people watch and enjoy one (or two) of our amazing cocktails. Please come back soon! Sincerely, Anastasiia Firefly General Manager

S P: Everything about this restaurant Amazing and I mean everything! I went once and I can't stop going back I tell everyone to go best chicken and waffles I have ever had! Drink and beautiful and delicious

The Occidental: what do users think?


Al Ectric: Everything is really excellent about this location: the service, the decor, the history, you name it, just top notch. However, the food 🥘 with all honesty was average. The quality, taste, an flavor were okay with both the half chicken platter and the salmon platter we ordered. Not worth the price. They were cooked/served without salt and I don’t care what secret recipe you have, if you don’t use salt when you cook, might as well head to the nearest senior living buffet (no offense). But hey, I guess you’re only there for a piece of history and service.

Hilda Kroll: A nice, quiet place to have lunch and a challenge to remember the names of the famous people whose portraits are hanging everywhere. The short rib grilled cheese sandwich had lots of tender meat and was oozing with cheddar and Bel paese cheese. What made it unique and special was the radicchio-citrus marmalade. Reasonably priced with great service thanks to Chanel.
Response: Hilda, giving our guests a five-star experience is something that with continually strive for. Thank you for dining with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

antoinette rodney: Food was good. Pleasantly surprised by the cornbread. I was expecting the usual starter bread. The cornbread was served in an iron skillet so it stayed warm longer! I had the pasta special which was pasta made on site with lobster and clams. It was not heavy at all! I also had the Occidental salad which was also light and good. Normally with a meal this size I walk out of the restaurant feeling like I had a ton of bricks in my stomach because I was so full but not here. Decor is interesting. Many pictures on the walls of influential people in Washington. Waiter was attentive!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent dining experience at Occidental Grill & Seafood. Our staff works incredibly hard to ensure our guests have the best dining experience. We hope to see you back very soon.

Khoi Nguyen: Came here for lunch with some coworkers. We had some oysters, angus burger, crab cake sandwich and the fried green tomato BLT. Everything here was delicious. Oysters were so good we had to order another dozen. The burgers and sandwiches are a must order. The crunch from the thick cut bacon and fried tomato in the BLT was definitely the highlight. The crab sandwich was cooked perfectly and the added water crest added some great texture. This is a great place to people watch. The outside patio is perfect when the sun is out. Food and ambience here is great. If you want seafood and American food this is one of the best spots around the mall.
Response: Your review of The Occidental is flattering. Thank you for the kind feedback and recommendation.

Raquel Gitch: The atmosphere is great. We enjoyed looking at the photos and guessing who everyone was. All 6 of us enjoyed delicious meals, we tried everyone's plates and my halibut was the winner then the truffle fries were a close second.
Response: Raquel, thank you for such a wonderful review. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another 5-star meal.

YT White: My team visited for lunch during DC Restaurant Week, the food at the Occidental was really good and we all had something different. The best part of our visit was the service, hands down Ashley is one of the best servers in the area!! Her knowledge of wines (and their appropriate glasses) really scored big with me. She was patient answering our many questions about the menu items and remained kind even when overwhelmed by the group's excitement and enthusiasm. The entire team of servers were professional and etiquette and they all helped to create a wonderful team outing. I look forward to another opportunity to dine here soon. 🍴
Response: Thank you for dining with us and for your great review. We understand that you have many choices here in Washington, and are thrilled you chose to dine with us.

Andy Ho: Slight bit of wait but that's alright. Restaurant is split into two sections, one formal dining and the other the bar. Stopped at the bar side and ordered wine. Has a decent wine selection and the price is ok. Portion for the ahi tuna was a little too small. Burger was fine but by then was too full to finish the whole plate.

Liam Amiri: Great location, very nice staff and a very peaceful place. But the food wasn't that great. I ordered the Amish chicken sandwich and it was a very average gas station kinda club sandwich :) for real! My friend ordered the Salmon and he wasn't very happy either... I hope they work on the food taste and quality cause this restaurant is a beautiful place.

Janine Beatty: The food and ambiance was great. I sat outside on a beautiful day. The service was ok, but not as attentive as I would expect from this type of restaurant. The waitress assumed I wasn't going to order because I asked if happy hour food was served at tables. She also passed me multiple times to check on other tables. I wouldn't say she was rude, just didn't seem to think I needed the same level of service.
Response: Thank you for choosing to dine at Occidental and for sharing your feedback. It saddens us tremendously to learn of the shortcomings you experienced during your recent visit. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and frustration that resulted from this experience. We are committed to giving quality service to all our guests, and in this instance we indeed failed to execute that to the standards we wish you and all our guests to experience. We hope that you will visit us again and that we can redeem your faith in Occidental Grill & Seafood.

Karen L: We took advantage of restaurant week to revisit an old friend, the Occidental. The food is still great. The seating arrangement does not crowd the room and allows for conversation. We enjoyed all the dishes we had as they were interesting and well done. Will definitely put the Occidental back on the list for lunch rotations given our pleasant dining experience. If the ice cream cookie sandwich is on the menu, get it! the cookie was fab! (My fantastic Grilled Point Judith Calamari Salad is pictured: Beet Yogurt, Barley Chips, Apricot -Harissa Coulis, Summer Mixed Greens, Shaved Daikon Radish)

Deborah Altman: A wonderful place for a special occasion. Outdoor patio dining added to the ambiance. Food, wine and service were all wonderful. Did an excellent job with gluten and dairy free. Server asked if cross contamination was an issue. I greatly appreciated that. We will be back!
Response: Thanks for joining us at St. Anselm, Deborah! We’re glad that you had a 5-star experience and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to follow us @stanselmdc to keep in touch on Instagram!

andrew: Super cute place, spacious and fun! Had dinner here with some friends on a Friday night. We made reservations for 630pm and was seated inside at one of their booths. We started off with biscuits, cooked Oysters, deviled eggs, and giant prawn as our appetizers. The biscuits are a must order item. They’re fresh and warm, and comes with a side of polenta spread. Every bite melts in your mouth. The Oysters were good and had a nice flavor. You couldn’t “taste” the sea. Both the prawn and deviled eggs were pretty standard. A bit boring and standard in taste. I had the steak as my main course, along with a side of broccoli and baked potatoes. Steak was medium and full of flavor in every bite. The broccoli was just okay, and worked as a side going along with something that had more flavor. The baked potatoes are much like fries, seasoned with herbs. There’s plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, but i still recommend making a reservation. They have some great large, private booth areas outside to accommodate guests during the pandemic. I sure hope they get to keep it all up for a while. Parking can be tough in the area on busy nights and weekends, but the Union Market parking lot should work. Service was fast and friendly.
Response: andrew, 5-star experiences are what we strive for day in and day out here at St. Anselm. Thank you for the great feedback and we'll hopefully see you again soon!

Evita Pass: I took my nephew here for his post-prom brunch and we loved it. He had the Bodega breakfast sandwich and I had steak and eggs which had a perfectly cooked medium steak that came with a side of their deliciously crispy potatoes. Get the heritage bacon when you order becasue it's thick salty goodness is worth it!!!
Response: Thanks for joining us at St. Anselm, Evita! We’re glad that you had a 5-star experience and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to follow us @stanselmdc to keep in touch on Instagram!

Mike Ragsdale: Incredible steak in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Feels like a neighborhood bar where I wish I was a regular, yet packs the punch of a 5 star steakhouse in the menu and wine list. The grilled mushrooms are the best I've ever had, and I don't like mushrooms.
Response: Mike, thank you for such a wonderful review. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience at St. Anselm. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another 5-star experience!

Cyriac Edappully: The service and our server were excellent. However the food was just okay. Came here with high expectations after going to La diplomat. The ribeye was good but not great. We also tried the skate wing which was something we've never tried before. Unfortunately we could only taste the seasoning on the skate wing. So I couldn't really say how it's supposed to really taste like. The Bobo chicken was also just okay. Same goes for the New York strip. The best dishes there were probably the lamb steak and the biscuits. The sides were also quite good.

Bryan Webb: Delicious food in a relaxing yet lively atmosphere. Everything we had was perfectly prepared and highlighted the protein while pairing it with unique sauces. Excellent local beer selection.
Response: Thank you for such a complimentary review, Bryan. 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 St. Anselm.

Melanie Smith: Consistently great food. We love bringing friends from out of town because we always know the food will be outstanding! Everything on the menu is a home run… but we especially love: Ax Handle steak, salmon collar, the biscuits and pimento cheese, and pan fried potatoes. Reservations highly recommended- especially on weekends. They also have outdoor seating.
Response: We seriously have the best guests out there! Thank you so much for the shout out, Melanie. We greatly appreciate the 5 stars and look forward to seeing you again!

Jean Ng: The atmosphere is great. Lots of outdoor booth tables and inside decor is a mashed up of someone’s luxury cabin with a touch of industrial. While the decor is interesting and the service was good, the food was just ok. I read that other patrons was raving about the butcher’s steak but mine came out a little chewy although cooked to my request of medium rare. We both find that the pan fried potato was a little too herby for our taste. One thing for sure we both love the rich ice cream cake that put a sweet note in the end of our meal. I do believe in second chance, we will be back next time. Theres some dishes I would like to try like the baby iceberg and ax handle ribeye.

Bobbi DeAnda: Oh my gosh. So glad we went to this place! Such a cool vibe. We were able to get in with no reservation - sitting at the chefs counter - which totally worked for us. Our server was very attentive and the service was very quick! The food…OH MY GOSH! That ribeye is up there with one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Such a fun date night. We will be back! Also, each plate is unique and you get a postcard with the check!
Response: Courtney, 5-star experiences are what we strive for day in and day out here at St. Anselm. Thank you for the great feedback and we'll hopefully see you again soon!

ESB NYC: Cool place in Union Market. Kind of an old school steak house with a modern vibe. Excellent service. I had the draft Vieux Carré cocktail, $14, pretty tasty. We shared the blue crab deviled eggs ($14) and the oyster appetizer at $19 for 6 cooked oysters. My husband had the butcher steak which was $34 and flavorful but pretty tough. I had the rockfish entree (also $34), nice piece of fish in a mussel cream sauce. A little fishy for my taste (freshwater fish) from the Potomac, lol?! We shared the fried mashed potatoes and creamed spinach sides. We shared the ice cream cake dessert, I think it was $11. Tasty but just a little rich after a fairly heavy meal. All in all, expensive but pretty good.
Response: ESB, thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent experience at St. Anselm. We're happy to learn your visit was an enjoyable one and we look forward to welcoming you back soon and earning that last star.

Mastro's Steakhouse: what do users think?


John Darden: The steaks were cooked just right. Our waiter was polite and make our evening more enjoyable. The lobster mash potatoes had plenty of lobster meat; however, it was oily. If you like lemon drops then you should definitely try theirs because of the taste and presentation. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were huge. We had added crab meat to one of the steaks; however, we felt as though the restaurant could have included more meat relative to the cost of the dish but it was good. You can pay your bill using your phone. That was a nice touch (no need to wait for someone to come back to you) We plan on coming back.
Response: Hello, we appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6263boU0Z

Ariel Aviles: Mastro's was a great surprise for our DC trip. Super fancy decor, low light and superb service. Appetizers where on point (shrimps, burrata), steak was perfect and the wine selection impressive! Highly recommended.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Mary McKay: We couldn’t have chosen a better establishment to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. From the food to the service, everything was exceptional. The service size of everything is huge! You could definitely share every course and spend half the money…or if your like us, we enjoy the left overs the best day 😍.
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. Your satisfaction is our priority, and as affirmed by your review, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. We sure hope to see you again soon!

Jaela Ford: This review is strictly for the waitress named Nicole. We would have given 5 stars if she did not taint our experience in the beginning. We were told by the hostess that she would be our “wonderful” waitress. She also came over to bring us menus and ask our water preference as if she was our waitress. However, for some odd reason the waiter was switched. When she was acting as our waitress, she was extremely short when answering our questions & seemed as though she did not want to be bothered. She also never introduced herself. We had to ask our new waiter for her name. There was absolutely nothing positive about her. It was as if she had pre judged us just because we were a table of young black women. Thankfully, our new waiter Phillip came over and saved the night. He was super welcoming and helpful. He answered all of our questions with a smile. His customer service was top tier! The drinks and food were also amazing! Thank you Phillip!
Response: Hi Jaela. Thank you for choosing to dine with us, as we know you could have chosen anywhere to enjoy your meal. We are always looking for ways to improve, and would appreciate any feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. http://ms.spr.ly/6260wuAhs

Junaid O: Definitely one of the best restaurants in DC. Went to Mastro's for my cousins birthday dinner, reserved the private room downstairs(check with the team for availability). We got there about an hour and a half before closing, yet they were very patient with us. The shrimp cocktail and Woodford Manhattan were excellent. Tried some of the other appetizers from the table and everything tested pretty well. For the main course I had the Rack of Lamb, didn't disappoint at all. Dessert was no different as well, the butter cake was the highlight for sure. Highly recommend!

Jennifer Driggers Driggers Group Real Estate: Our family ate here for New Year's Eve 2021 on our trip to D.C. We thoroughly enjoyed the food the atmosphere and the service. The Wagyu steak was definitely worth the money. The lobster mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes were great along with the Bacon and sau'teed shrimp appetizers. For desert definitely must try the warm butter cake. Wish we had a Mastro's closer to home. We will definitely go back!!

Sage Williams: First time experience and I loved it. Live music, calming atmosphere, amazing service and food.This is an upscale establishment where you are expected to wear slacks as a man. Please be aware all items are "a la carte"

Rosalind Manning: Wonderful evening celebrating a special mom and daughter event. Not one thing could have been improved upon. Thank you for a great experience.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Mark Blanchard: Food was great, but service was a little slow. It took more than 20 minutes for out server to acknowledge us and get us a beverage. The table next to us was annoying. It was 4 people Facetiming someone the entire time we were there, and on speaker. I'm all about sharing memories with loved ones, but use earphones please! It's rude to other customers otherwise. The restaurant also made a mistake on our bill but later corrected it. Overall a good experience, but could be better given the price.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Steven Bazemore: Absolute perfection, outstanding service & sexy Ambience. Best steakhouse I’ve had so far pricey but great experience cost. It was worth every cent.

Farmers & Distillers: what do users think?


Marisa Ramon: This was a really cute place to have a both creative and comfy buffet brunch on the weekend. They had a wide range of breakfast and lunch options. Everything was cooked well, the areas were kept clean, and didn't seem to sit long. Their dessert buffet was delicious and cute. Guests were respectful and wore masks at the buffet. As busy as it was, it was a nice dining experience. The espresso machine was broken and $4 for plain coffee seems like too much however everything else was great. They serve brunch until technically 2pm however it's not a hard time as they still serve buffet a little after for the late comers. The $30 brunch buffet cost might be a little high if you are running low on time so I would suggest arriving early and making the most of the experience. Also, it's very popular so I recommend making a reservation as well.

Courtenay O'Connell: We were staying at Hampton across the street, and decided to try their happy hour at F&D. Prices were good. Staff was excellent & really hustling. We didn’t have to wait long for food and drink. The spicy pork riblets were just okay - not much meat. He really wanted the hot dog ($6) and tater tots ($4), but they didn’t have them. Huge disappointment. I enjoyed my shrimp spring roll & Margarita (wanted it sweeter, though). The Margarita packed a punch! Or I’m a lightweight. Or both! I would have tried the other Spring Rolls, but hubby wanted something more to eat, and nothing on the menu appealed to him. Oh, well. Can’t please everyone.
Response: We hope you all will return sometime to explore more of our great menu! -Tiffany

Corey: A bit high end but the prices reflect the quality. We stopped here for dinner Saturday the 18th around 730. Our server Justin was great providing suggestions for cocktails (made with their own liquor) and food. We ended up doing appetizers for dinner and drinking a few rounds of delicious cocktails favorites included the bread platter, the barrel aged old fashioned and the bourbon maple smash. After it was all over we wished we had ordered from their excellent dinner options and hope to come back and try more of their excellent food.
Response: Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica

Bobbi DeAnda: Love this place! My husband and I went here for our anniversary and then again for his birthday! It’s definitely a treat. The half pound Louie is AMAZING! Drinks are pricey but tasty. The food is SOOOO good. Will definitely be back for special occasions!
Response: Thank you so much for the amazing review and celebrating your anniversary and your husbands birthday with us! We look forward to having you join us again! We can not wait to serve you! :) -Najjah

Weekend Warrior: Overall it was a positive experience. I thought the burger was good as was the tequila with egg whites. We reserved the outside area with the plastic around it and on the website it was $20 per person. It did come with the popcorn, but we DID NOT get the flights of whiskey which was promised on the website. I'm guessing the owner realized this because he gave us the desserts for free after we ordered them, but never mentioned the flights himself.

Simple Life Keekee: The restaurant overall decor is the BOMB, so clean and the workers are so informative and The drink I attempted to drink was their Strawberry and ginger Margarita (You have to love Ginger) overall the drink was good and I loved it. The crab and Artichoke dip was good wasn’t hot like in favor but was good. the burger was good as well need a little more seasoning however it was a 9/10 recommendation

Teresa Simmons: Incredible food and service. Interesting menu choices, very unique. Loved the cherry blossom dessert. The noodles in the cumin lamb dish were so good. Large variety of wonderful cocktails too!! Definitely get the dumplings appetizer, it is so good!
Response: Thank you so much, Teresa! You named all of our favorites too! :) -Kerry

Harry Irvine: Had brunch on a Saturday around noon, place was packed. Gotta make reservations ahead of time if you don't wanna wait 30 minutes. The brunch buffet was great, especially when the food came out fresh. Some dishes were better than others, but its a buffet so just get what you like. Value is okay, drinks is where they'll get you. One and done epitomizes this place!
Response: Thank you, Harry! We hope you will return soon for another great brunch! -Tiffany

Arn Heggers: Service has always been stellar, no question. The food was good, but for the price point, there is a higher expectation. The bread on my Reuben was dry and the meat was slightly overcooked, giving it a very chewy texture. Fries were cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of saltiness. Overall, it was a good diner experience.

M Lopez: This restaurant was highly recommended by friends, and I made sure to make reservations in advance. Was our 1st stop in DC, unfortunately it was a huge disappointment for us. Dinner started well, we were seated fast, ordered a drink, and bread basket which arrived fairly quickly, but after that, our food took more than 30 minutes, waitress never acknowledged us again and when the food finally came, she only said that the kitchen was busy, nothing more. Menu stated the pasta was homemade, not impressed. Fried green tomatoes were awful and their signature dish, fried chicken with mac and cheese was ok, Bojangles is better and much less expensive, lol. The only good thing was the drink and the corn bread.
Response: Oh no! I am so sorry we failed to impress this time. I know our team can do better and the dishes you mentioned- are so good! I would love to have you come back so that we can turn this around. Please email me at Hospitality@FRG.farm with a copy of your review, date dined, and location. -Kerry

SUCCOTASH: what do users think?


Rachel Murphy: Ordered the taste of the south. The food was overall pretty good, plentiful and the sampler was a nice way to try many things. Full orders at other tables looked very large. Sadly the overall experience was not great and I’d probably not return. A couple small things combined were disappointing. A raw piece of chicken replaced with a piece way over cooked (clearly the kitchen was mad) - we never ever send food back but raw chicken we did. The manager seemed to place blame on us (a lucky chicken vein). I have a shellfish allergy and asked if possible to get a scoop of the grits(without shrimp) just to taste and that was ignored. Wasn’t looking to substitute but it would have been nice (or told not possible if the shrimp was cooked in). Then a 4 top was placed at a table next to us when the restaurant was fairly empty with many open tables in the same server section. In covid times seemed odd. Plenty of brunch places in dc so I’ll try others instead of returning

Dominique: Came here for dinner while visiting a friend in the DMV area. The ambiance is nice. It's large with ample seating. It's dim-lit giving that romantic vibe. My friend and I both ordered the Belle's Punch to start. It has both vodka and bourbon, but the mango-flavored vodka, ginger and mint mask the alcohol. We got the cornbread cakes to start. We could have skipped it. They were small donut hole-sized. Wasn't like traditional cornbread and we weren't really a fan. The rest of the meal was great though. I ordered the shrimp and grits which was truly delicious. Loved the shrimp in it. It was cooked perfectly and all the flavors of the meal came together really well. My friend got the chicken and waffles with the largest pieces of fried chicken I've ever seen. My other friend ordered the Dirty chicken which had honey gochujang so it was pretty spicy. There was no sides that came with it, but the portion size was gigantic. She thought it was delicious, but couldn't really handle the heat. Overall, the meal was good, but the service left something to be desired. Perhaps the server was having a bad day, but we had to prompt him to come by first to take our orders and then throughout the whole meal down to getting the check. The issue was that with the other tables he was far more attentive. That definitely shouldn't deter anyone from going here. The meal was great and it's worth coming here for the food.

Bwalya: Was looking for a brunch place in a pinch and was referred here by a friend. This place was perfect! Service was exemplary from the moment we walked through the door to when our server returned our cards. She was humorous, patient, and extremely helpful. The drinks were great and the food was worth traversing DC for, I'll be back for sure 👍🏿

Aaron Renshaw: Had a great time here. Lots of care taken with both menu and bar options. Everything we had was top notch and ample portions. Cocktails were great and our bartender, Rafael, was fantastic! This will absolutely be on my list for a return visit when I'm back to DC

Miracle Reason: Absolutely loved this place! I went with my cousin for her birthday.The restaurant itself is a vibe - Beautiful seating/ decor, perfect for a classy dinner. Service was amazing shout out to Kayla who took great care of us. Drinks were delicious. Had my 1st proper whiskey sour with egg white. She had the cactus rose, a tequila drink. For starters we had Wings and the fried green tomato salad- Amazing, ESPECIALLY the wings. I had the chicken and waffles and when I say that was probably the best waffle & syrup I have ever had I'm not over exaggerating. The chicken was nice and crispy. She had the shrimp and grits which was very flavorful. I highly recommend.

Brenna Belletti: Delicious food & drinks at a great price point. The other reviews are correct on here about the service, it's extremely slow. We had to ask to pack up the rest of our order so that we wouldn't miss our show at Ford's theater even though we gave ourselves a few hours for dinner! We got the taste of the south courses dinner so that we could try a little bit of everything and it was fantastic!

K R: Succotash kinda sucked…. The atmosphere was great, our waiter Mike was patient and kind and we loved his service! When it came to the food it was disappointing- sticky buns: dry, waffles: hard, hang over special: salty, with gravy on a fried egg instead of the biscuit… why?… If you’re coming for food lower your expectations. If you’re coming to feel sophisticated yet comfy you’re in the right spot. I also noticed the people next to us not finish their food. Worth noting.

Bryan Mroz: Went on a Friday evening. It was full but we had reservations and we were seated quickly. Service was a bit slow but our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was perfect. We had Shrimp and Grits and Catfish. Great ambiance. There was love music mostly soul and jazz.

Vin D Sr.: Amazing menu and a fine meal. Staff was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere! Chicken and waffles outstanding as was the smoked steak! Sides were awesome too! So good we had to take a few orders to go! Highly recommend. Make a rez to secure a table at this hot spot.

Chris Taylor: Amazing space with comfy booths. They had live music which was a nice touch. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was good, I enjoyed some food came as starters. Loved the milk punch cocktail and the honey old fashioned. A good spot.

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!

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab: what do users think?


Teresa Simmons: Amazing food, impeccable service. The ambiance is so relaxing and lovely. A true gem in DC. Oysters Rockefeller was so good, best I have had in years!! The sangria was flavorful and refreshing. We can't wait to visit on our next trip to DC!!! The chocolate fudge pie was decadent and delicious! This was just 1/2 a slice, more than enough to share!!!

Alexander Staufenberg: My parent took me here for their anniversary dinner. I was sort of nervous about the vegetarian options — but I was very pleased with stuffed mushrooms, the potatoes lyonnaise and the steamed asparagus. The portions are very generous. After hearing we were celebrating an anniversary the house gave us a complimentary brownie with ice cream and whipped cream. It was divine.

Konstantin: Great restaurant. Atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and food is really good. Oysters were fresh and fried chicken was simply delicious. This place is very popular so reservation is recommended there.

Luke L'sk: The one seafood restaurant that is repeatedly being recommended as we search online for dinner it is located very close to the White House so if you're tourism then may as well go there for a night view of the front of the president's home. if you're driving to have a file a talking for $20 right in the front so that you don't have to worry about finding a location to park your vehicle. I would highly recommend that you make reservation a few days ahead as there is hardly any space for time slot when I was booking my reservation; we were seated very quickly after entering the restaurant. It is a large selection for drinks on cocktail and wine. Maturity of the food selection is based on Seafood. We chose to have some raw oyster as well as a sample of the seafood selection for appetizer with entree as the seafood pasta and a flounder on the market price list. We had some question on the wine selection, the supervisor or the manager on the floor came to advise and give us the recommendation for the wine that we would like to have, he was very knowledgeable. Our waiter Kurt is splendid, he was very friendly and attentive, making sure our needs are met. It was a lovely dining experience to spend my friend's birthday dinner there. it was a nice touch that Kurt could gave us a complimentary ice cream brownie with a candle to blow for his birthday wish of the night

James Marable: Had the filet & lobster tail both were cooked perfectly. The lobster Mac could benefit from the addition of a more bold cheese to add flavor as it was somewhat bland. Service was great and loved that they kept my sparkling water on ice! I also had the crab bisque but it lacked crab, it was mostly onions/shallots (nothing like the crab bisque as Jeff Ruby’s in the Midwest).

Swastika Nohara: The best stone crab there is! My favorite was crab stuffed shrimp because it was creamy and delicious! Perfectly seasoned and crunchy at the same time. Creamed spinach and broccolini was also nice. We spent 156 USD for those meals as seen on my photos.

Maryam Sherbaf: We went to Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone crab for our anniversary. The service is excellent, atmosphere is nice , the restaurant is pretty packed. The food is good but it’s a bit overrated and overpriced.

Allison Williams: Wow this place is gorgeous, really nice ambiance, I want to start there. The food is delicious and fresh as well. It is pricey so if your going and you have a party of more than 2, expected to spend like 100$ a person. The drinks were good but not strong enough for me. It was my birthday and my first time there and I enjoyed every moment.

Melissa Flaminio: Our waiter Jeffrey was fantastic. We were looking for a good seafood spot close to our hotel that we could celebrate my recent graduation and it totally hit the spot. Got the seafood pasta and the crab was buttery with citrus, and the little slices of asparagus was top notch. Loved it and definitely worth the trip

Tarek Paige: It was my husband and I 24th anniversary a magical night at Joe's, it doesn't matter what you order the food and Service are Superb and all the desserts are made in house I suggest that you make a reservation valet parking Is available, Joe's is a great place you won't be disappointed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Liz R: Finally made it for brunch here. I've been wanting to check it out for a while. More of a fine dining experience. Less laid back. Appears that customer service is prized very high here. Food was good - smaller servings than necessary. Nice ambience.
Response: Hello Liz, Thank you very much for the detailed review. We look forward to seeing you again. Appreciatively, Alan

Kathy Moore: Fantastic service and a nicely designed setting made our visit memorable. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food was delicious and beautifully pretended. Would like to see more appetizers that are less like side dishes you'd have with dinner. The ladies bathroom gave me a couple of chuckles.

Julleny Wain: Food was really good but pricey. They do have unlimited mimosas if you do the all you can eat which is $50 per person. The portions as small buy again its all you can eat. The chicken and waffles was amazing, they have a waffles station, omelet station.

Alita brown: I came here for the Christmas dinner. I’m giving it a 3 because the service was good. Unfortunately the food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. $70 buffet style. The meat was absolutely dry and tasteless. I tried both the salmon and chicken , but couldn’t bare to eat either. The sides were good but not worth $70. I don’t think I’ll ever have this type of dining experience over the holidays. I will cook my own.
Response: Hello Alita, My sincere apologies on your experience with us on Christmas Day, I wanted to learn more if you could please send me an email at Justin@prghospitality.com I would most diffidently like to invite you back in. Thank you for your feedback and for helping us improve. Thanks

Hyun Kwak: I had a burger with fries along with sparkling water. the quality of service was ok. the burger was great but the fries were not that fresh. I still give them 4 stars. they have a happy hour menu, but the prices were not too different from the full menu. so, please check both menus even if you go there during their HH. happy dining! :)
Response: Hello Hyun, we will work on making sure our fries are fresh and hot. I apologize and hope to see you again. Be Well, Alan

Amy Rosenquist: The food at this place was absolutely delicious! We ordered an omelet, avocado toast, chicken & waffles, and chocolate chip pancake. The mimosas are small but they have a “bottomless” option if you’re looking to have a goooooood time ;) We sat outside and the umbrellas didn’t do much while the sun was still rising, but once it was overhead it was much shadier!

M B: Bottomless brunch offered a variety of foods and consistent pours throughout the duration of our 2-hr table reservation. Some dishes were less impressive than others, but the pricing and overall experience were unbeatable.
Response: Hello MB Thank you for the great review. We appreciate your business. Kindly, Alan Owner

Jason Wallach: Went there for lunch. Excellent food, but a little slow on the delivery if you are trying to grab a "quick" bite, so be sure to tell the staff if you need speedy food delivery. I ordered the pumpkin soup to start, and it was smooth, rich, and sweet with a dollop of olive oil ricotta that added a fantastic touch of savory saltiness. The portion size was not very large, but the soup was very good. For my lunch entree, I ordered the mushroom risotto. Although the portion size was not large, the risotto was exceptional and very filling. It had blue cheese crumbles all over it, some other cheeses that left strings hanging from my chin, and something like honey that added some sweetness to everything. I cannot wait to return for happy hour or dinner to try their cocktails.
Response: Hello Jason, We thank you for your review. We will work harder at getting the food out to our customers as expeditiously as we can. Appreciatively, Alan Owner Teddy & The Bully Bar

Christopher Kenneth Young Jr: Good service. Thank you Olivia. Food could’ve tasted better for brunch. Lots of small portions during brunch, if the portions were larger, we would’ve ordered less plates. I don’t recommend going for brunch with parties more than six - can be very hectic. If you want an unlimited brunch, I would recommend this place.
Response: Hello Christopher, I am glad Olivia was able to deliver the service that we are always aiming for. I also appreciate your honest feedback in regards to the food and the portions. I would really like to know more about your experience so that I can correct these issues. You can e-mail me at justin@prghospitality.com. Thanks again.

C Simpson: The restaurant atmosphere was beautiful. The brunch options were great. However the food was just okay. George, the manager, was great at accommodating our group and making sure that we were all taken care of. The servers appeared to be overwhelmed .
Response: Good morning, I am sorry that your experience was not up to your expectations. We work hard to provide the highest level of service and food that we can. If there is something we can do for you to make this better, please let me know at alanpopovsky@prghospitality.com

Tracey Robinson: So we went here for our 4 year anniversary because I'm a seafood lover and when I tell you my Lobster was so fresh and so well prepared (shout out to the chef)! the waiter that we had wasn't as great but the food was so good you kind of forget about her forgetting everything. My margarita that I ordered was different it came with a hot pepper in it but it was still good and strong I guess that's a thing in DC because a couple of restaurants I went to had peppers in the margarita.

Jason Jonathan: Coming here with my partner during our trip to D.C., and it was one of our best decision. Our waitress, Jessica, was very friendly. We ordered the stuffed salmon and their top sirloin, both of which were very tender and reasonably seasoned. Somehow we love their mashed potatoes very much! It's smooth and creamy, perfect!
Response: It was a pleasure serving you! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We hope you'll come and see us again soon!

Tiffany Smith: Went here with a friend and everything was outstanding; from our waiter (only wish I could recall his name) to our dessert. The wine list was exceptional, the oysters were delicious as was the Seabass that I had and the lobsters that my friend had. We even finished up with some cheesecake. Service was A++

Warman Hall: I got the chance to visit while I was in Washington DC for a conference. The other folks in the group wanted to try this place. I'm very glad we went. The steak was outstanding! While the stalks of asparagus I ordered were larger than I was used to getting it was perfectly cooked. I was told to try the lobster bisque and it was one of the best choices I made on the whole trip. I highly recommend this for a special night out for anyone in the area.
Response: Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!

Craig GroveRealtor: Had an excellent experience. Our waiter AJ was super friendly and made great suggestions. He made us feel extremely comfortable and laugh. The steak and sides were delicious. Highly recommended! Ask for AJ!

Monique Jackson King: I had a long travel day and was really happy to finally sit and enjoy a meal! I came in and when the hostess (African-American woman with blonde hair in a bun) walked up, she didn’t say hello or ask how many would be dining. She looked at me awkwardly for a moment and I then asked to be seated. She told me they weren’t taking any more walk in guests (the dining room had available seating). She didn’t offer an alternative. I asked her if the bar was open and she asked another host, or host manager, who was standing there. I seated myself and enjoyed my meal, but was disappointed in that being my first “greeting.” It lacked hospitality and professionalism. The server at the bar was great and made up for the earlier experience.
Response: We are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6269b6G3W

Courtney B: My first time here and I loved it! It was a friends 35th birthday, they gave the 5 of us a private booth, that we could close the curtain for more privacy if needed. Bella our sever was amazing from start to finish. I got the crab and shrimp stuffed salmon and it was really good with the lobster bisque mashed potatoes! I will definitely be back!
Response: It was a pleasure serving you! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We hope you'll come and see us again soon!

Dani Elle: Very good food. Cosmo drink was one of the best I've ever had. Service was attentive but slow (the norm post-COVID in my experience) so be prepared for a leisurely meal. I'll be back!

Phillip Bulger: Food was good, but not great value for price. Service could have been better, a few orders for a group of 10 were missed. Steak needed to be sent back. Overall still a good experience.

SuJin Choi: Made a dinner reservation for 5:30pm through opentable, we had to wait for the waiter to sit us at 5:50pm and the restaurant was clearly empty and even made few eye contacts with a few of the servers walking around in the back). The woman's restroom ran out of soap and had an odd odor. At a time with the COVID19 going around, you would think a restaurant would stock up on soap for their customers. We ordered the fried calamari and arugula salad. Fourth of the calamari was fried veggies/jalapenos. The lobster tails were alright. We got the C.A.B NY strip with bone in at medium rare but it came closer to medium/medium well and some burnt edges. Truffle fries tasted like normal fries. Nothing too special and truffle about it. Not sure if I'll make another visit (at least at this location).

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.

Coach Aundre Blasingame: The service from the hostess to the servers was beyond exceptional. They were willing to clear tables that they weren't serving. We asked a different server for a to go box...she took our dirty plates and brought us boxes back to pack our food (She didn't just pass it our server.) Food was good. Chocolate chip cookies were 🔥. Great atmosphere. Worth it for the time it takes to prepare scratch food. The Fishers Fryer and Bourbon Sour in the picture.
Response: Wow! Thank you so much, Coach! We appreciate your feedback and kindness! :) -Kerry

Ardavan Tookaloo: It is a very cozy restaurant and bar. There is option to seat inside or outside with heaters for winter. Servers are so nice and friendly. The atmosphere is good. The food is fresh and tasty. Drinks are good too. Just remember it is always crowded and packed. Even if you make a reservation you might still wait for another 45 minutes and that’s what has happened to us however the hostess was so kind and offered us a couple starters on the house to cover for the delay. Update: the more I go here the more I love it, specially the crews and managers! They are the best! Last time/night we were there late to celebrate a birthday and we ordered burgers with fries, after 15 min our waiter came back to us informing us they are out and offered us free desert to make up for it! The food is great as always but these kinds of attitudes and kindness is something we love and respect. Thank you guys we had a great night with great deserts! The chocolate ice cream which I believe is home made is a must to try! Super delicious!
Response: Thank you, Ardavan! We are thrilled that we have been able to turn around your previous impression! Also, we appreciate you dining with us and look forward to your next visit! -Tiffany

Kenzi LA Toy: A beautiful environment, the ambience was amazing. The server informative, but the orders compromised and wrong. I ordered the Honey Pot Chicken with fries as ah replacement but had the remind the server of my request because I received the original order with grits. Once I did get my fries there was hair added to my order. It was irritating! They finally brought out my fries and ah manager. The manager comp. Us dessert but part of the dessert order was wrong. All in all, in patience and understanding we had ah great time! Please note - everything here is made fresh. So ordering a soda means canned and no free refills! Just saying... #ᑕᕼOOᔕEᕼᗩᑭᑭY !
Response: Thank you for your feedback, Kenzi! I am glad the manager took care of the issues during this experience and I hope we will knock it out of the park the next time you join us! :) -Kerry

byron subero: This was on tiktok for brunch but I decided to try them out prior to. They didn't disappoint in service, food portion, drinks and delicious food all around. Everything fresh and allot to choose from. I wanted to try 3/4 of the drink and food menu! As you can see the inside is relaxing home on the modern day farm vibe.
Response: Thank you so much for dining with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed everything, and look forward to your next visit! -Tiffany

Kent Brackin: Great food and drinks. Everything seems to come with a mint topping so if thats not your thing might want pay extra care to the menu. There was plenty of seating when we went for brunch but i would suggesting making a reservation because it started to fill up over the two hours we were there. Breakfast stops promptly at 11 AM so make sure you plan according if you want try their amazing waffles! Bathrooms only have 3 urinials/1 toilet for male and two for the females so a line can quickly form trying to go. Waitresses/waiters seem really knowledgeable about the menu items but sometimes their response time can be less than ideal especially once the restaurant starts to feel up, but overall o had a great experience and look forward to going again!

Sun Family: We made advance reservations to have brunch at this beautiful restaurant in the Georgetown neighborhood. Make sure to book early! We were seated rather promptly but server took a while to show up at our table. We did not wait and got started at the buffet. The spread is amazing and make sure to pace yourself as you collect your food. I loved the fried chicken, the amazing artichoke and crab dip, their breakfast items, pulled pork, prime rib and ham, as well as the lovely spread of desserts! They came around with fried coconut shrimp and sushi.You can also request it if you don't see the server around. The hot chocolate was supposedly very good, according to the kiddos. I did not post any food photos because, there are way too many on their review site. Would definitely visit again!
Response: Amazing! We are thrilled you all enjoyed your brunch experience! We look forward to you all dining with us again soon! -Tiffany

Tina Marbury: The atmosphere was pleasant and the decor was admirable. The server arrived with a smile and an eagerness to assist and please our first visit here. The food although amazingly plated arrived tepid and bland. However, the alcoholic drink served was very good.
Response: Thank you for sharing, Tina! We hope to have you return to give us another try. We would love the opportunity to guide you to a meal you will truly enjoy! -Tiffany

Y Li: This is a nice and vibrant American restaurant. We opted for the outdoor lunch. Highly recommend the Mussel Pot in White Wine & Garlic, serviced w. their specialty rustic white boule bread, fluffy and lightly chewy, perfect balance dipping in the wine sauce. Shrimp fries and biscuits are tasty. Our lady server was warm and considerately brought one extra pot of hot water for the green tea pot to be shared.
Response: Thank you for your review, Y Li! Eating outdoors is always a great experience with the view and fresh air! Please come again! -Xenia

Jessica R: I was really excited to eat here based on several recommendations. However, I was a bit disappointed. We had breakfast here on a Friday morning and it wasn’t very busy when we got there. We still had to wait awhile on a table which we were okay with. I got the chicken and waffles and I felt as though for the price I was paying the piece of chicken was rather small and I maybe received a teaspoon of gravy. The chicken was also mostly breading and not a lot of meat. I also didn’t get any butter for my waffles and the waffles were just room temperature at best. The service was rather slow throughout the meal and unfortunately when you are waiting on something for your food (like the butter), then your food gets cold. I also got a Bloody Mary which was mediocre and slightly watered down, but I am kind of picky about my Bloody Mary’s so it was just one I didn’t like as much as others I’ve had. I am still giving three stars because my mom enjoyed her meal and didn’t have any complaints about her food. She just did the “build your meal” option and thought it was good.
Response: Hi, Jessica. I am very sorry to hear we delivered a less than stellar experience to you Monday morning. I do hope you will try us again and let us deliver a much better experience. -Kerry

TexCat: WONDERFUL lunch here. This is a great spot. Trendy restaurant with a cool vibe. Great service. Wonderful food and drinks. Ordered the mussels in wine and garlic sauce. Truly one of the best dish of mussels I’ve ever had! The accompanying bread was marvelous also! Couldn’t resist the bread pudding 😋 Highly recommend
Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your visit with us! Please join us again soon! :) -Kerry

Richard Holst: Elegant and delicious. Everything is gears towards an excellent experience. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. The restaurant has many quiet and corners with the perfect atmosphere. It is well organized and very clean, every inch has amazing details. The food and drink selection is extensive and everything we had was prepared to perfection. The views of the water are amazing and there are plenty of things to walk to in the area. We will be back here often.

Keana Williams: This was an enjoyable food experience from the appetizer breads and jelly, to the Prawn appetizer dish all the way to the lightest and fluffiest pancakes I possibly have ever had! No extra syrup needed!!! Not to mention, the bottomless Mimosas (or other drinks) weren't that bad either... I'm sure you will enjoy this place, just make sure you bring your check book! 😄😄

Dario Camilo Barros Viñas: 5 stars for real in every aspect. It has both a very fancy area indoor and a fancy yet relaxed area in the patio. The service was amazing, the food was superb, the cocktails were delicious and generous. Canver the manager was very kind and served us the calamari complementary make us feel even better served! I didn’t know the Branzino taste this good until I tried it here. We were only two so we couldn’t try more plates but do yourself a favor and try Fiola Mare!

Christopher Gillespie: All about the dining experience here, they go above and beyond. Did the bottomless brunch with amazing views. Brunch at this level of execution will be very tough to match. The blue fin ahi could be best bites of 2022 to date. The scallop crudo was melt in the mouth. Worth the price of admission.

Pe Lin (Cilibluebird): A five star seafood restaurant that deserves the five star. Great for special events minimum 50 USD per per person, but well deserved. Hakan was our server and he made this experience exceptional. Pasta’s are excellent. Georgetown next to water. Outside seating is great in the evenings of hot summers.

Roz Manning: Fabulous venue for our intimate wedding dinner with family. The Mermaid Room and adjoining patio were perfect. The appetizers were delicious, dinner was delectable and service superb.

Vannora Hawkins: We dined here for my husband's birthday. The food, service and ambience was A+. He got the Wagyu and it was cooked to perfection. My branzino was light, flaky and simply delicious. The oysters were AMAZING! The Brussels Sprouts is a must try! After trying to decide over 8 restaurants, we were glad we ended up at Fiola Mare.

Mike: Easter brunch was amazing. Staff, as always, is fantastic.Intro: watercress soup and the other dish white asparagus.Mains: blue crab omelette and Australian lamb.Glad to see that a packed restaurant. Make reservations!

Alemselam Tekeba: So delicious food. Everything is gears towards an excellent experience. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. The restaurant don’t have an Apple Pay, since me and my wife use’s almost everywhere and one additional thing wore if you don’t have an ID card you can’t be served alcohol even if we look adults we felt uncomfortable but we used other credit cards to pay and we cancel my wife’s wine order. The views of the water are amazing and there are plenty of things to walk to in the area.

Tash M: Had a private dinner here and it was an exceptional experience. The food was lovely, so was the service. Special thanks to Darina for being so attentive and providing an especially memorable experience.

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse: what do users think?


Vy H.: LOVE THIS PLACE!! My work company had our holiday lunch gathering here recently! The restaurant has a nice and fancy vibe, and surprisingly was packed for a weekday lunch. Their salad bar is awesome—with a huge selection of choices. Their meats (that come around your table) is so delicious and well flavored. In addition, staff is very friendly and attentive. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have the chocolate cake as a dessert option for our meal, but the cheesecake with strawberry sauce was really good!

Kevin Amaya: Went here for a company brunch and was blown away! If excellent service, high quality food and drinks in a comfortable and relaxing setting then this place should be in your top places to visit. You won't be disappointed with the selection of different foods to choose from.

Joseph Middleton: Went for my first time ever at Fogo with my siblings to celebrate the end of a trip together. This dinner was one of the highlights of our vacation. Our waiter as well as the entire waitstaff and all of the gaucho chefs were wonderful, knowledgeable, and professional and made the experience all that much more enjoyable. The selection of meats rotated through regularly and the market table had a great selection of fruit, salads, and other delicious food. The side dishes we were brought were delicious. We were celebrating my sister's graduation and the staff went above and beyond to make it special. I cannot speak highly enough of this dinner. It's truly an excellent experience and was a memorable one for my siblings and I.

JennyLovesGogi 제럽고 (제니럽스고기): Especially, the lamb was fantastic.They provide fresh salad, salmon, soup, and fruits at the self corner.And they gave us a fantastic cheesecake for our birthday! 💯💯Thank you for nice food and service!

Morgan: Fantastic service. The employees here really work well as a team. The food is always great. I took my boyfriend here when we first started dating and he loved it. Took him again along with my grandparents, who were in town visiting… I didn’t tell our server, but we were also celebrating my grandma being cancer-free. Our server went out of his way to give my grandma a free dessert that said “Welcome to DC” (see picture)… That was really nice. Thanks for many great experiences.

Steffon Greatness: Danie Magalhes & Staff are super accommodating. They understand customer service. Daniel kept a smile on his face as if he wanted to be at work. The Service, QUICK, Efficient, & Friendly. It’s as if they want you to ask question. 🤣 The Food, Fresh, Hot, Tasty❗️I’ve been to hole in the wall Brazilian spots and I’ve been to Texas de Brazil… the food tastes better thank all of those I’ve experienced. Pro Tip, They get busy quick, they have a full dining area. Tables fit 2, 4 & round tables that must fit about 8. They fill up pretty quick. (And this was a Thursday) Try the bottom steak & lamb. It’s the best. I wasn’t a fan of the beer marinated chicken however it wasn’t bad. Last thing get the soda in the picture it’s AMAZING. I want a case of them lol. *** Please mark this helpful if it helped you***

Naturally E: The food and service was top notch! I really enjoyed all of the selections & the quality of the meat. The market table was my favorite! Soooo many options to choose from. The drinks were fantastic! Surprisingly, they have Happy Hour all day! Our server, Ryan, was ahhhmazing! He was super cool! Really enjoyed our meal.

John Kurton: Great place for meat lovers. Great quality meats and good size cuts just kept on coming. The salad bar was great too. Some how even managed to find room for dessert.
Response: So happy to hear this, John! Thank you very much for the support - we can't wait to serve you again.

Jesse Campo: I don't know why I'd never been here before, but I'll certainly be back. Got super lucky with a reservation being available last minute. I'd recommend getting a reservation if you're coming for dinner, especially on a weekend. We still ended up waiting about 15 mins for our table, but it was well worth it. The food is amazing, and it's pretty much all you can eat high quality meats and salad bar (with delicious sides)! I didn't expect there to be so many different meats. I was seriously impressed with it all. It came to about $80 per person after tip - not cheap, but definitely worth it. If you haven't been here and you're looking for an awesome meal, get a reservation and go! Make sure you're hungry and don't waste *too* much time at the salad bar - ha.

Autumn Bishop: We went for the first time for my birthday, everything was amazing. Our server Denzel was overall a 10/10 super attentive even though it was crazy busy he made sure our needs were met and even offered to have specific meats brought to us if we hadn’t tried them yet. He also had great recommendations and accommodations. The food was all fantastic. We will be definitely coming back the next time we are in DC !!

St. Regis Bar: what do users think?


Aditya Karandikar: Drinks are good and they have some food as well. The ambiance is as one would expect at the St. Regis. Service is fine, no wow factor, and overall it’s a nice place for a drink and snack on the pricier side of things.

David Salcido: The ambiance is great but it was a little weird having a bunch of dogs in such a small place and the service was bad. Getting a seat is very difficult on a Friday night since it is so small. The service at the bar could have been better. We sat for a good 30 minutes in between drinks before we could get the bartender to come back. One of them was just doing dishes the whole time which was awkward.

dilianna bustillos: The Abraham Lincoln cocktail surprised me. I didn't have high expectations but the drink was perfect. The bartender was very nice and the ambiance was refined and intimate.

Tofig Karimov: The restaurant's service is appalling. For the entire restaurant, there was only one waitress. The hotel, which has a 4.6-star rating, should provide far better service than this. They don't know how to properly pour wine. A good hotel should feature a separate dinner restaurant and a brunch restaurant. I would not suggest this product.

Dennis Mema: Drinks were delicious, and charcuterie board was excellent, but was disappointed in the simplicity of our meals. Ordered sandwiches costing an average of $25 and got the same sandwich, if not worse, that I could order for a third the price at a dive bar down the street.

Robert Cardoni: Comfortable setting for drinks .. bring the checkbook - prices are high!

S Z: Great and delicious food, friendly service!

Surang Sa: The best bar ever I love to hangout with the people and lovely bartenders, she super nice and friendly with good drink I never ever had. I alway have a great time with this bar.

Susan FG: Bar and hotel are beautiful, service and drinks are fantastic as in previous visits. The bartender, Diego is awesome!

Sarah Gray: Love that they have clever non-alcoholic cocktails!

The Greenhouse: what do users think?


Melissa Luke: The food is great, but the experience is what wow’d me the most! Wonderful ambiance, very cozy and not pretentious, and they give you a tiny upholstered foot stool for your purse!! We had tons of fun.

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!
