Dirty Habit: what do users think?


Olivia M. Wilson: Went to Dirty Habit for brunch and it was good! The fruit was really fresh and the potatoes were crisp. However, the service was decent and they only have bar seats available. Maybe that’s because we arrived an hour before they closed for the afternoon. Either way, the food made up for it. I would definitely like to try their dinner menu.
Response: Hi Olivia — Thank you so much for the kind words and for the feedback! We take all feedback seriously, so we’ll be sure to discuss ways to make our service more efficient. We're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please let us know. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Austin Graff: Located in Penn Quarter close to the Chinatown Metro Station, Dirty Habit makes for a great date night or group dinner. It's a spacious restaurant with several beautifully-decorated dining rooms, bars and a heated outdoor patio. Here's my wife and my experience going on a February Saturday evening: 1) Food: The food menu is organized first courses, mains and sides. My wife and I love little courses so we each ordered our own French onion soup and then split the beets four ways, watermelon tartare, burrata, crudo and whipped butter potatoes. For dessert, they brought over the churros and an innovative banana split. All the food was excellent and well presented, but th watermelon tartate takes the cake. It's entirely vegan and the flavor combination is out of this world. 2) Drink: They have a full cocktails, beer and wine menu. If you don't have the wine, you can bring your own if you call ahead. (They'll charge a corkage fee.) Off the menu, they make mocktails if you tell them what flavors you like. My wife's citrus mocktail was well made. I ordered the Amazonian and it was excellent with the coconut whip. 3) Service: Our service was on point. We were seated the moment we arrived for our 8:30 p.m. reservation and our server was efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable on the menu. 4) Experience: From the service to the atmosphere to the food, it was a great dining experience. They follow all pandemic protocols. Despite being full of all kinds of people, we felt far enough away and covid-safe. 5) Parking: This can be a challenge being in downtown, but we found street parking for $3 by the Rice Bar along 9th Street NW near Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Blvknative: Going to dirty habit for Valentines Day was top tier! The ambience was everything I was expecting! The deal as far as food and drinks were top of the line! Truly a captivating experience for my company and I.

Shannon A. McGhee: Top tier restaurant/ bar atmosphere. Food was very delicious. We had a private party in one there spaces. Food and alcohol was served. The staff were more than exceptional. Everything was jaw dropping that night. The bars was fully stocked, the outdoor seating Area was a magical scene setting the tone for the evening. I'll be back as this has become my favorite spot now. See ya soon.

Heather Walker: Amazing beautiful place, food was great. Our server unfortunately wasn't the friendliest or most attentive. Prices are pretty high for what you get. 20% Gratuity was taken out automatically.
Response: Hi Heather — Thanks for stopping by, and we appreciate the kind words! But we’re sorry to hear there were certain aspects that we didn’t deliver on. We’ve noted your comments for the next team meeting, but if there’s anything more you’d like to mention or talk to someone about, please email stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.com and she’ll be happy to help!

Katlin B.: Best French onion soup I ever had! The vibe is trendy and the crowd is very eclectic. The food and drinks were amazing! Will return for soup. Thanks to the awesome host and staff! There is also a nice outdoor area as well.

Christina Hollimon: My husband took me here for their valentine's day special. It was a 4 course menu. 95$ a person and the food was subpar. I ordered filet mignon medium and it came out rare twice. We frequent placed of this caliber and don't expect to pay this amount for a under cooked steak three times, including the one they sent me home with. The soup and tuna tar tar dish were subpar as well. Honestly while I appreciate my hubby's efforts we were both disappointed with the food for the 360 dollars spent after tax and tip. The 2 stars is for the service

Aisha C: I will never spend money at this restaurant again. Absolutely ruined my NYE experience with sub par service and below average food. My group of 4 opted to do the NYE 3 course meal with a wine/cocktail pairing and it was a complete mess. Service was 1/10 as the waiter had to come back to "double check" our order minutes after writing it down. Every single order came out incorrect and we found ourselves super disappointed and unamused by the 2nd course. I had to call the manager who listened to our complaints and rewrote our order for a third time and even still the orders came out wrong!! At this point our night was ruined and already downhill but we were given purfuse apologies and a measly comp of our 2 of 4 cocktails and a water ($100 value) The bill was still around $600 including a 20% automatic gratuity forthe 4 of us and it was absolutely not worth it for the horrible service, mispaired food, incorrect drinks, and condescending waiter (who later apologized) we had to endure. Though managers really did try their best to restart our experience it was extremely disappointing for the seeming high end meal experience they advertised. Definitely not how I intended to spend my last meal of the year and definitely won't be back.

c clark: Good food, classy spot that I felt not dressed to par. I had just got in town and had on nike shorts and t shirt. But it was cool. Service was great. I'd definitely go back again
Response: Hi C Clark — Thanks so much for the kind words, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Lamina Richardson: I was a little disappointed when i visited dirty habit. It’s aesthetically pleasing but i wasn’t impressed with the food. I got the district chicken and the black rice that’s paired with it was very gritty. The dish was also paired with okra and string beans. The veggies weren’t sautéed at all and had no flavor. They literally tasted like microwaved veggies that were previously frozen. The chicken was actually good but the parings sucked so it wasn’t filling. Nice atmosphere though. Really good espresso martini! If i go again it would only be for drinks.
Response: Hi Lamina — Thank you for the kind words as well as the feedback. We hope you had a fun time overall, and we'll be taking your comments about the district chicken into our next meeting with the kitchen team. We take all feedback very seriously and we're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please contact stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.c o m and we'll be happy to continue the conversation. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

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

Madhatter: what do users think?


Tariro Chimhandamba: I really liked the Alice in wonderland vibe. We were seated immediately. They had a Wednesday drink special. The food was good definitely would recommend this place for people looking for great food stop in DC.

Jeffery Montgomery: Nice, popular brunch spot. Hangover Bowl was a very filling and hearty portion of food. The decor was "Alice in Wonderland" theme, the other guests all seemed friendly. Would recommend for a nice dive bar with friends for a hot meal with cold drinks.

Halimat Oduye: Madhatter was truly amazing! Top tier experience, our group hosted a Women's History Month Brunch. Missy (Manager) was amazing, she created a menu with our organizations name on it which made our experience wonderful. Hannah was our server and she was kind, responsive, funny, charming. I can't say enough, thank you for making our event so special.

Ryan: Wonderful service at the bar. Delicious good and good cocktails. Great location

Jas L.: I want to start by first saying I usually do not write reviews, especially the bad ones but after this experience, I felt it was necessary. First, the food, it was unseasoned and unappealing. I ordered the crab benedict, BIG MISTAKE. It was literally bland crabmeat on top of an english muffin with the poached egg, it wasn't even in a "crab cake" form. My boyfriend ordered the steak and eggs, another mistake. The steak was bland and tasteless, the "toast" was rock hard, and the brunch potatoes were unseasoned. The mimosas were fairly priced for bottomless, but they too, were disappointing. The juice was watered down and full of pulp with barely any champagne. Then to top it off, the bartender, Freddie got into a loud argument with my boyfriend when my boyfriend asked him for plastic cups for our table because ours were dirty or had gnats in them, yikes. Lastly, our server, we had many missing pieces to our orders and our checks were wrong and had to be corrected twice. Not sure if it was a comprehension issue or a staffing issue as our server was the only one working the dining room during our visit. I hope to visit again soon because I always heard good reviews but I will not return for brunch.

Un Utilisateur Google: Tried the Thursday 1$ beer offer. And even if it tasted like water, the atmosphere was incredible. Kind staff. HUGE shoutout to the DJ that despite playing only old and new HITS music, mixed them perfectly to never let the dance floor down. Total blast 💥

Alok Sinha: Stopped by here for a quick lunch. It was a middle of the weekday so there wasn't many people but I enjoyed my time here. I had the chicken parmesan lunch special and it was delicious. The price was fair, and the staff were fast and friendly. Would recommend stopping by here if you are in the area.

Usman Ahmed: I purchased 2 bottles of corona at the upstairs bar and the total came to $18. I wanted to socialize so I asked the bartender what his name was. He responded “I don’t give my name out to people who don’t tip”. The rest of the staff is usually friendly so I was surprised. Their boss is not paying them enough and it translates to poor customer service if you do not pay their wages yourself. This is not the great depression anymore. Pay your workers living wages

Hannah Collins: food was good! atmosphere and cocktails were lacking. my partner and I both had sandwiches and onion rings, pretty tasty. the vibe was very odd - the bar seemed ok but we went in the dining room where we were the only guests and it was oddly upscale compared to the bar area. the cocktails were lame, we didn’t have the mad hatter hat maybe that would have been better, i had a frozen margarita which was ok. my number one issue was that it was very dirty. my cup was dirty. the water glass was positively stuck to the table. the paintings have obviously never been wiped down.

Jéssica Bittencourt: The place is great, they play all kinds of music and me and my friends would love to go there. Their hat drink is delicious and pretty big and fair. It’s really worth it.

Blue Duck Tavern: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Old Ebbitt Grill: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

byron subero: This restaurant was great! The maitre d was very nice and informative about the restaurant and the art work. Food was delicious and the drinks was amazing. The peach moonshine was fantastic. Definitely need to go back to try their brunch.
Response: Hello Byron, Sorry for the delay but thank you so much for your review. Be Well, Alan Proprietor

Amanda Long: We stopped for dinner because it was close by, but it was a wonderful experience. We had 2 appetizers and 3 entrées, and loved all of it. The steak was perfectly cooked, and we couldn't have asked for better service (thanks Karen!). We'll be sure to come back next time we're in the area!
Response: Hi Amanda, Thanks for the great review. We are lucky to have customers like you. Appreciatively, Alan Owner

Klara Cheung: Downtown DC and there's there's street parking around. Cute little place, masks are required indoors but there's a cute outdoor sitting area. For those who get a lot of mosquito bites, make sure you spray up before you go! Good service and great food. We ordered the House Cut Fries which came with 4 different sauces which were all very good. Fries were also very good and well seasoned. I ordered the Cornmeal Fried Softshell Crab Bahn MI Sandwich. The Crab was a great size and really crispy and the Bahn mi was very flavorful. I ordered the Gettysburg Cooler for a drink which was very refreshing. Definitely recommend it here!

Faith Mitchell: Enjoyed brunch at Lincoln yesterday morning. Loved the vibes as the restaurant is cute and they play good music. It is very clean and I felt comfortable enjoying a meal here. The menu had a lot of options and $50 for bottomless mimosas and food is a great deal. Definitely had some unique flavor combinations that we surprisingly enjoyed. The service was a bit slow as we waited for awhile to be served and didn’t get checked on as much as we would have liked. However, everyone was nice including the manager and, when we did get a server, we were well taken care of. Would go back.
Response: Hi Faith, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your business and hope to see you soon. Kindly, Alan Owner Lincoln Restaurant

Gina S: Cool place to visit due to it being linked to the historical figuer Honest Abe. Small space, a bit of a wait, but the menu offers good southern/homestyle food. I wasn't wowed, but my appetite was satisfied.

Mikayla Ramirez: Nice atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Great food. Decent price.

Nonie Fields: My friend and I stopped by the Lincoln yesterday for lunch. The food was amazing and the ambiance and decor was aesthetically pleasing. Our server Brandy took great care of us she made our experience a million times better. I definitely will be back to try the dinner & brunch menu!
Response: Hi Nonie, Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate you dining with us. Kindly, Alan Owner

Bobby A: Got there for "Happy Hour". They have a wonderful appetizer selection as well as wines, beers, and cocktails. We enjoyed glasses of wine, beer. And a couple of scotches! The deli platter was good as was the fish taco. The romaine ceaser was really tops! Excellent waiter though they were busy. We sat outside but the inside is very nice. Also, clean restroom. Will come back.
Response: Hello Bobby, Thank you for the kind review and your business. Appreciatively, Alan Owner

Madison Garcia: I went to Lincoln last Sunday for their Pride brunch with a group of girlfriends and had such a fun time! The bartender, Nico, served us and gave us the best experience. The drinks were great and he was so fun and friendly. The food was delicious and the service made our time there even better. I will definitely be going back soon!
Response: Hello Madison, Thank you for the kind review. I will pass it along to Nico. I appreciate your support. Appreciatively, Alan

Patrick Baber: Delicious brunch and incredible staff. Highly recommend. Cool vibe and decor as well.
Response: Hello Patrick, Thank you for your kind review. We greatly appreciate your business. Respectfully, Alan Owner

Stable DC: what do users think?


Bobbi DeAnda: Great service and food is pretty good. The fondue is tasty but only comes with bread - getting other sides is extra (and you can’t get a mix of them - like a side of a bowl of potatoes or a bowl of apples or a bowl of pickles) and would have liked more variety. We purchased some extra - the apples and potatoes - the potatoes were a little hard and completely flavorless (needed some salt in my opinion) - still tasted too plain even in the cheese. The table is a little small to not feel cramped. Overall, it was a good experience but we probably won’t go back. For dinner in the $$$ range, I would expect to leave with a fully satisfied belly!

Melissa Antul: Excellent service. I love that you had your own little curtained "room". Covid updates actually made this very cool, so you have a lot of privacy. We had the Raclette brunch. It is quite an experience and also a ton of food. There were 4 of us and we had left over everything! There must have been at least a pound of cheese and a basketball size bucket of potatoes. This was a new experience for me and fun to try something different. You get to cook your own cheese in your own little pan. I like their spice mix...not sure what's in it, but it was good. The little pickles had a very interesting flavor-?fennel. Pickled onions & cabbage to add on. Almost forgot the yummy salad with a wide variety of greens and nice vinaigrette that you get to start off.

Lucky Charm: Delicious food! Decent service. Love the barn house seating area that allows you to enjoy a private dining experience with family and friends. The reason that I'm giving it four stars rather than five is because the waiter forgot to serve one of our drinks towards the end, and the portion of the seared scallops seemed relatively small compared to the other dishes. If the group hadn't ordered appetizers, I may have been hungry at the end. My only other critical feedback is diversifying the cheese board appetizer. I recall being a bit surprised that only one type of cheese was served. Switzerland is known for it's selection of cheese and I would have like to tried other options as well. I came for the experience and curiosity of trying food from another culture. For a fine dining restaurant, I expected a bit more. Overall, I liked the presentation and concept of the food and dining experience. And, I appreciate having a Swiss restaurant in town. It's a great place to enjoy a nice Swiss meal!

Andrew Harper: Dinner was delicious, we really enjoyed the cheese! We were lucky enough to snag an indoor chalet which felt very private and cozy. I had the lavender martinita, and the lavender was so fragrant and tasty with the tequila. For food, we did the raclette which I highly recommend. It comes with several things to pour your cheese over, but my personal favorite was the Italian speck ham which was an add-on for just over $10 - but totally worth it. My only feedback is that our service was very very slow and our waiter seemed distracted, so we had to keep grabbing another waiter after waiting for things we asked for for a while or when we had been waiting for the check for quite some time. But otherwise, a wonderful dining experience 🙂🧀

joyride4324: The food was delicious and the staff were welcoming and friendly! The best part was the cheese appetizers from Switzerland. It was explained that they came from cows in the alps! Soooo good. I’d like to try the fondu the next time I come!

Megan Ulu-Lani Boyanton: Such a wonderful Saturday brunch experience. We didn’t need a reservation to get an outdoor table around noon, which is a plus for spontaneous eaters. The owner and wait staff are lovely and personable. The food is delicious, and we’ll be back for dinner soon!

Polina Antipova: Our Swiss friends recommended this restaurant for dinner as a Swiss dining experience. I’ve never tried Swiss food before but I liked it here.

Oceanie De Silva: Sunday brunch! Cute little cabins to give you the Swiss feel! Tasty swiss food!! Enjoyed our Sunday brunch

Dan Sullivan: Had a wonderful time here for my girlfriend's birthday. Everything we tried tasted great. The private chalet was awesome. Staff was friendly and great. For DC - price was great. We'll definitely be back!

Amanda Donaldson: This was my first fondue experience and I really enjoyed it! The cheese was delicious. I enjoyed the atmosphere and decor, including the little Swiss history tidbits on the wall in the restroom. The staff was very polite and friendly.

Crimson DC: what do users think?


Tahoma Lewis: Love the casual atmosphere! Our server was polite and attentive. The food was good. The pickled deviled eggs were esthetically pleasing and delicious. I had never had them before, and was not disappointed.

Arielle H: I have only had experience on the rooftop. We actually stumbled upon it one day. We walked in looking to just sit at the bar and one of the employees said why don’t you check out the rooftop and we said heck yeah! The views are great, the service is fairly fast, and the drinks were even better. - Will definitely be returning in the midst of summer.

Jenna DeFosse: Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience here. The service was extremely slow. Had to wait one hour for food! I have never had such a poor experience at a restaurant, this was very unfortunate. We just sat waiting and waiting for food…It was incredibly hard to flag someone down so after waiting one hour went up to someone and asked how much longer for the food. We deduced that the order was never put in originally because the food then arrived 20 mins later. Other patrons seemed to be having similar experiences. Food not coming, other customers left because food was taking so long. They seemed short staffed but the service was not good. It was expensive for these sub-par burgers. I’ve heard the rooftop bar is nice, so I’ll hold out for that.

S. K. Hill: Finally, I was able to visit Crimson and I loved it. From the awe-inspiring rooftop view of downtown DC to the very cool Whiskey Bar on the lower level, Crimson hit the ball out of the park. I loved their old-bay wings, kettle chips and ciders (apple and pineapple). It is in a great location in Chinatown. I will definitely come back here again and again. Easily FIVE STARS.

Nikkicole8890: I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for my trip to DC and we visited the rooftop bar while we were here! We loved the views and the drinks were good! He ordered a charcuterie board for us to share and it was amazing aside from the hunk of hard Parmesan they served us (it would'vemade more sense if it were Gouda or Munster)... they didn't give us any utensils originally so I had to go to the bar and ask and they only had plasticware which it was almost impossible to cut through the hard block of parmesan cheese we were served.. so that's why I took a star off. Otherwise, our experience and the ambiance was amazing!

BA R: Chinatown in D.C. Lucky for us the only place opened after 9 P.M on a Tuesday night. Great ambience. Good food. And they have a Whiskey Bar downstairs w/ live music. 10/10 we’ll be back.

Matthew Copper: When other dining establishments in the neighborhood had at least an hour wait, we stumbled upon Crimson. The seated us quickly and the service and food was wonderful! Will definitely be returning!!

Jack Kelly: A very busy venue with an exceptionally odd policy of confiscating water bottles of patrons in case they contained alcohol. I have been to countless bars, clubs, restaurants, taprooms and so on and have never ever encountered such a bizarre policy. We were a small group (4 adults) joining a small group (4-5 adults again) plus an infant which made the confiscation even more bizarre. The elevators are more protected than Fort Knox. The top floor was closed for a private event, but the host accidentally pressed the top floor button. She asked us to step out of the elevator (reminder, with infant so it was more of a nuisance than just adults) so the elevator could run up to the exclusive top floor party empty (because we weren’t even allowed near it let alone ride the elevator directly up and directly down). When it returned the host had to swipe her card and press the correct button to send it down to the basement. Again, countless bars, restaurants, venues and heck even corporate offices and have never experience something like that. Two truly bizarre incidents that soured an otherwise pleasant venue which leaves me with no desire to return and no reason to recommend to others. The food is good but the service messy and slow.

Lavada Walker: Well well well, how I just stumbled upon Brunch on The View. I was very undecided between Shrimp and Grits or the Brioche French Toast. I decided to go with the Shrimp and Grits, Wow!!!! It was sooooo darn good. If you want some good eats and drinks with a beautiful view hit up Crimson Saturday and Sunday 12pm-3pm

Dhruv Jaiswal: Great whiskey bar in the heart of DC ! A must try if you love whiskeys, they have all kinds of collections from all sorts for regions in the country and world ! The food is great as well ! Do try out the place and the rooftop in the great weather

Hard Rock Cafe: what do users think?


Kelvin Ofula: A typical Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of DC. Strategically positioned. Loved the interior deco and their food. The staff were once again as amazing as always and very helpful. The lady at the souvenir shop was very very helpful and friendly. I loved every single bit here. The ambiance was great and so was the music. Hard Rock is just pure positive vibrations and I always try to visit one when in an area with one. I would totally recommend.
Response: Thank you for the thoughtful 5 star review Kelvin! We hope to welcome you back to the Washington DC cafe soon!

Matt Daniel: A classic Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of DC. A great layout within what appears to be a old fashioned restaurant or bar. The rock n roll decor is seamlessly integrated into the Art Deco along the walls. The staff were very hospitable and I recommend making a reservation as you can ask for better seating up stairs or in the back. There was one tv above the bar featuring music videos of various famous rock n roll bands. The pricing was reasonable for the area and the options for food were good with large portions. I’d recommend to stop by if you haven’t been, hope this helps!
Response: Thank you for the thoughtful 5 star review Matan! We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!

Yogis Dogie: Nice place to visit in DC. Extremely busy but very nicely decorated. Unfortunately the food is very mediocre. Looks great, tastes bland and almost always served cool or cold. The hamburgers have an odd seasoning in them that can be off putting. Fries are good but the portion is pretty small (in relation to the price). The gift shop is well stocked. The rewards program changes its guidelines too frequently and dumps points out too often to be useful. Basically, it’s a nice place to visit, but one visit is plenty.
Response: Dear Yogis, Thank you for visiting HRC DC and taking the time to provide your feedback! Please accept my apologizes for not delivering a 5 star experience, if there is ever anything we can do to assist on your next visit please do not hesitate to reach out to the management team at Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Adam: It's just your typical Hard Rock Cafe. Good food and drinks. No wait. Our waiter, Terry, was very attentive and polite. Great place to grab a bite when touring DC. *please note* you get more onion rings than pictured!
Response: Hello Adam, Thank you so much for your recent review of the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington D.C. We appreciate the 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

Bailey Alexander: This was my third time eating at this particular Hard Rock Cafe! This location really stands out. It’s in the heart of the city so it’s really nice to tour monuments an things and then ride electric scooters to here and park them. Then you can relax and unwind, ride scooters back around to tour more things in DC. The food is always very flavorful and good. The drinks are always perfect. This location has an excellent modern style with lots of arts and things on the walls. I highly recommend checking this place out while in DC.
Response: Hello Bailey Alexander, Thank you so much for the 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

David Arrimadas: Very good Hard Rock restaurant. I have been in lot of them all over the world and this is a very good one. I love the open kitchen concept and the kindness of all the staff. The brownie is delicious and soooo big. Difficult to finish it even when sharing!
Response: Hello David Arrimadas, Thank you so much for your 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

WorldofDaph: I try to go to hard rock in every city I visit and usually it is a pleasant experience but not today. I came to this location and sat down in the bar area waiting 10-15 minutes for someone to take a drink order. Considering how tired and hungry I was I had no energy to even leave. One of he waitresses at the bar looked at me and my fiancé multiple times and never came over. She was behind the bar scratching her back under her shirt and didn’t even wash her hands. When she finally came to our table she pulled out her cellphone to text someone. Having been a service manager in restaurant for years I was completely dumbfounded at the disrespect. I’m a pretty mild mannered fair person but this Waitress was awful. I will say the kitchen staff was doing a great job. They were pushing food out but the servers just weren’t running food which caused it to just sit in the window. The receipt said the waitress name was Sara. All I know is Sara needs to be demoted to hostess or let go. Upon leaving I brought these things to the managers attention but I could tell she didn’t really care. She offered to give me her card. That’s won’t do much at all. I watch the manager stand on the expo line and watch plates die in the window. Saturdays can be quite tough and she was probably tired and over it herself. All in all I will never return to this location.
Response: Hello WorldofDaph, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent visit. What you experienced is absolutely not the type of authentic Hard Rock atmosphere we strive to provide. I apologize that your concerns were not addressed when you brought them to the attention of the manager on duty, we will make sure they are addressed immediately. If you have the time to discuss your experience in further detail you can reach our management team at: Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com I do appreciate your recognition of the Kitchen Staff and will happily share your praise with them! I hope that we can connect further on email. Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

gary becker: We had a party of 16 people. We went to Hard Rock Cafe because my previous experience at other HRCs was exceptional. Great customer service, but not at this location. We only had one server that rarely attended to our table. Drinks were empty most of the time. I asked 4 times for artificial sweetener and still never got it. I asked 3 times for a ice tea refill and it was refilled only once. Others in our party had the same experience. Tables around us were messy with food on the floor around us from previous customers and it was never tended to. The experience was so disappointing that I spoke with the manager on shift. All she said was that every restaurant was under staffed and service everywhere was impacted. Rather than take responsibility, she only verbalized excuses. Without even attempting to make the situation right. My hamburger was satisfactory, but the French frys were ice cold. I informed our waiter and all he did was say that due to our party size, some food had to sit awhile while waiting for other orders to be filled. Absolutely ZERO customer service. I even apologized to each member of our party for the poor experience they received because it was that bad. Saddens me that a HRC would allow it's service to get to this degraded level. Update: Connected with Sara Lester, Hard Rock Café Sales and Marketing Manager. Sara reassured me that all the issues I brought to her attention would be immediately addressed. As with any business or organization. There will be times a product fails or a process / service does not meet expectations. It happens to everyone. But what they do next is what really matters. Sara detailed the steps they would take to correct the situation to ensure future customers receive “Best In Class” service and food. Sara has regained our confidence in Hard Rock Café and we look forward to our next visit.
Response: Dear Gary, I really appreciate you taking the time to share about your experience. This is not the level of service Hard Rock aims to deliver. The details you shared will be very helpful in coaching our team to improve so that this does not happen again. Are you still in the DC area? I would like to invite you back as my VIP guests so that I can ensure you receive the service you deserve. Please feel free to reach out to me at Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Arthur Hurlburt: We would give it five stars but we ate so much that it upset our stomachs. I suppose I can't blame them for that! The burgers are good, the chicken fingers are better. They are real chicken, battered beautifully. Very, very good. Their t-shirts are pricey, but that's too be expected. The brownie sundae was amazing! Big enough to share.
Response: Hello Arthur Hurlburt! Thank you for your feedback! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

Rachel Cook: We had a very large group with reservations. They were not prepared. Some of the staff was great, but others were not. The food, for those who actually got food, was mediocre. If this continues, the DC Hard Rock will suffer the same fate as others around the country...permanently closed. It is disappointing 😞
Response: Dear Rachel, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I hope that you can accept my apologizes for not being prepared and delivering a 5 star experience. I am glad that there were a few staff members that were great. We are grateful for your patronage and will continue to strive for improvement so we can better tend to your group on the next visit. Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Le Diplomate: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Calico: what do users think?


Natasha Shokouhi: A group of us came in one rainy Saturday for my girlfriend's post birthday brunch that we had in the neighborhood. Located in the trendy and popular Blagden Alley. This bar has both an indoor and outdoor space with their own separate bars. They have a cute patio space that is great for hanging out. Unfortunately, the weather didn't permit us to utilize this great space! They have a fun cocktail and bar menu. I love the adult juice boxes! We didn't order any food, but the food menu looked good. Next time around, I will have to try the eggplant parmigiana sticks. Service is excellent. Comfortable and chill space. Prices are reasonable for what it is.

Rachele Clegg: I was super excited to try this spot for cocktails and was extra disappointed. My friends and I ordered one round of drinks and all three of them were downright terrible. There are so many other spots in Blagden and the surrounding neighborhood that are better than this. The one saving grace was the service — 10/10 even though the place was completely packed out and even their door guy left a great impression. Hoping to return once the cocktail menu is revamped!!

Ken Whittaker: Nice space to kick it with a group. Outdoor and indoor area more than ample with bars. The outdoor space is very comfortable as the night cools. Add a DJ, band, or whatever and it's a good time. Cool things: Adult "Capri Suns" Separate indoor and outdoor bars Attentive and fast bartending The weather could enhance or depress the night... or both.

cassandra bierworth: Fun place to hang out with friends. Ordering drinks was super easy using the QR code and they were super tasty. Loved sitting under the lights in the bird cage section!

Lydia L: Love the atmosphere here, the friendly staff, and the tomato pie (though, all the food is good.)

Ryan Brubaker: Very hipster. Great food. Hard to find restaurant off of an alley. But the alley is very well-lit and safe. The food is made from scratch and unique. Check out the tots and the meatloaf pictures I provided here. They were both amazing. Did I mention the place is hipster? Even the wine glass fits the bearded hipster that handed it to me. :-)

Nina R: Went here for the first time for drinks w my new coworkers and can I just say, Billy the bartenders service was out of this world he’s so friendly and nice and conversational, it was really nice to feel so welcomed into the city and also enjoy the great outdoor atmosphere. Thank you!

Michael B: This place is super cute! Generally really nice atmosphere, good service and good crowd. I had the grain bowl and really did not enjoy it. Other reviews say food is great so perhaps it just wasn't to my taste. Was also disappointed they didn't have all the beers on draft listed. For these reasons I felt a dock in rating was needed.

Stephanie Carter: Really fun bar / restaurant! Cocktails are a bit sweet, but beer is good and vibe is on point. They have really cute outdoor and indoor areas with ivy growing all over the place. Have a solid happy hour special, but it gets really crowded on even weekdays if the weather is nice! Food was okay, but pretty affordable and def worth it for this unique experience!

Laura Carlson: i basically live here. indoor and outdoor space, super friendly bartenders and great drinks. good for whatever, from big gatherings to a date ✨

Hi-Lawn: what do users think?


Matthew Hanna: The tent is so nice and warm and the roof top looks great. If I wasn't so cold I would have done the fire pit tables outside. I like the drinks; especially the hot cidercar. Mmmm...

David Story: Great location to hang out. The view is awesome. The bartenders there were very friendly and helpful for tourists like myself just passing through. It was kid friendly until 7PM(I believe. May have been 8PM). There isn't a lot to do but there are some picnic tables with canopies and there was a dj playing tunes.

NYALA WALKER: TERRIFIC ATMOSPHERE & GREAT VIEWS!! However, there is little variety in terms of food and what they do offer (fish burger 🍔 and lobster roll with chips) is just okay! Service was slow and the ordering app was a bit tricky! You also have to drink the alcohol they sell on the rooftop (sneak in your own booz if possible!! My advice would be SKIP Hi Lawn Just enjoy the general seating on the rooftop and get food from Union Market downstairs!

Ruth McDermott: DJ was good and bar staff lovely. However, $17 for one plastic cup of wine was a rip off! Will not be going back. Better off spending your $15 getting to Georgetown.

Binky T: Not bad. Good vibez nice atmosphere. They had places to sit which was nice. The reason why I gave it four stars is for the food. I would recommend eating somewhere else unless you are okay with paying $10 and up for a hotdog.

Jay T: Most of their drinks were sold out at 8pm on a Saturday, forced service charge, and they kicked us out because a group had “dibs” on the table, despite having been away from the table for 30 minutes. There are much better places near Union Market.

Mohammad Islam: Good rooftop restaurant for hangout with family.

Parker Kelley: Very cute and aesthetic place to visit. It wasn’t very busy when we went, but definitely seemed like it would be a great place to go during the day on a weekend.

Dacian Reece-Stremțan: Fun place to hang out with friends and have a cup of wine. The food ordering process is different than getting a drink, which for a first time visitor can be weird. The outdoor chess set is fun to use, but it is missing the extra queens and two squares. Overall we had a good time there. Would definitely go again.

Keely Norris: Really nice bartender. Wish I would’ve gotten their name (buzzed hair, tall) that let us know gratuity was included but deserved an extra tip anyway. Drinks are a little pricey but what you’d expect for a rooftop bar in DC. We had 4 different ones and they were all good though! Plenty of space and good music too.

Chicken + Whiskey: what do users think?


Ameen Karim: Went on a Saturday night and a decent time. I did not try the food, but the drinks and "speakeasy" was a great twist. Drinks are kinda pricy but that's expected with the area and the the bar in the back gets really packed at night. A live DJ was on sight, music was loud, bartenders where on their game, and the place was packed. 4/5 because they should figure out their vibe. You have a bouncer at the door of the speakeasy but then there's no dancing there. Overall nice experience
Response: Thanks for the review Ameen!

Madhusha Sarathchandra: Not worth the money you spend.... First time I have been here. First of all, menu was a little confusing. Took us a few mins to figure it out. Then they got my order wrong. Asked for a wrap and they made a wrap but nit the one I asked for and didnt notice it untill I pay for it. I have tried a lot of pollo chicken places around and I cant rank the food taste in the top when compare it with other Pollo resturants. Thats why I said this place is not worth the money. Then the sides. Got the Yuca as side and they served 5 pieces(counted) of yuca for $4. Whiskey and beer including cocktails is a nice touch. I wonder how they have this kmuch higher ratings. Surprising.... 2 stars for the cleanliness and quick service. Would not visit again and not recommending....
Response: Thanks for the review Madhusha. Please reach out to a manager at the store and we will try to rectify your bad experience with us!

Marcus R.: This spot surprised me. I was walking by, and happened to see this out of the corner of my eye. My left-eye--R.I.P. As an out of towner, it was worth a visit. The food was good. Better than most spots that serve Spanish-style food, as this location put the effort in both presentation AND taste.
Response: Thank you so much for the review Marcus!

Victor: I ordered the quarter chicken meal which comes with two sides. I came for lunch take out, it was pretty quiet here. The chicken was not warm and the rice was not as moist. I did like the seasonings on the rice and yuca. The sauce here is a 5/5. The sauce is what got me through this meal.
Response: Sorry to hear about your experience Victor! Please call the store and ask to speak to a manager. We will be happy to give you another meal.

Lucy Ruderman: Really tasty chicken, sides, and sauces. Everything we tried was delicious and I feel like you can’t go wrong. Two of us shared a half chicken (comes with two sides) plus a third side and felt like that was enough.
Response: Thanks for the review Lucy !!

Amy Chai: We went on a Thursday happy hour and it was very very dead, just us and another couple, but i liked a calmer vibe. the bar is located at the back of the chicken restaurant (thru a walk in freezer door) which has amazing food. the bar itself is pretty small but the decorations and lights are so cute.
Response: We appreciate the review Amy!

David Login: Overall GOOD experience and great drinks. Environment in the back has cool mood lighting and mixed drinks are legit. Good social mix of girls and guys. Bartenders were fun and approachable. Only four out of five stars because it gets easily hot and crowded.
Response: Thanks David!

dipika: I'm a vegetarian and I love Chicken + Whiskey. Their sides (of which most are veg-friendly) are actually tasty and filling on their own. Their drink menu is a big overpriced, but feel worth it for the cool atmosphere of ordering from the sidewalk window and enjoying them on the streatery benches. The portions are pretty big too, which makes this a great spot for big group dining.
Response: Thank you for the feedback Dipika!

A Sullivan: Was excited to try this spot and read good reviews. I ate 2 forkfuls of the chicken and I was done. It wasn’t hot or flavorful. The black beans and rice tasted old. It just didn’t meet my expectations at all, very disappointed. I won’t be going back or recommending.
Response: Amelia, thank you for feedback. Our apologies for your bad experience. Please give the store a call and speak to a manager we want to make this right.

Jaymee McGraw: The food is delicious! The chicken is moist tender and flavorful. The soupa was just the right amount of spicy and had amazing flavors. I love cilantro and if I was a local I would be a regular at this restaurant.
Response: Thank you Jaymee!

Estadio: what do users think?


Hanna Ozbeki: came here for brunch and it was great! we did tapas style and it worked out for us even with the larger plates. we got the brussels sprouts, caluflower, patatas bravas , arugula salad, chorizo hash and hanger steak and eggs the star of the brunch were the steak and eggs everything else was good, but the patatas braves were not my favorite compared to everything else on the table service was great! quick, respectful, and mindful of our requests!

Da-Wang Wu: Some dishes are good (e.g., cauliflowers, shishito peppers, shrimps, cheesecake, churros), but others are just okay (e.g., steaks with blue cheese, fried potatoes, mussels). Since it’s tapas style, it’s better to order dishes by batch vs. all at once. Outdoor dining space is available. It can be a bit pricy for a casual Friday dinner.

Shalini: Perfect place for the first in person meeting with my team! The food here is fantastic. I loved the Bomba rice which is a rich but not too heavy and has umami-ness from the mushroom, truffle and manchego cheese. The corn was my next on my list of favorites followed by shishito peppers (decadent pepper aioli on the side), crispy cauliflower which was good. The churros were amazing- they were served with dark chocolate sprinkled with sea salt on the side, were perfectly crispy on the outside soft on the inside and not cloyingly sweet. Good service and recommendations as well!

Genesis Christina: First time eating here and YOU have to go, the ambiance is so welcoming and warm. The food is to die for! Great prices and you are able to try so many different plates because of the sizes! If you are looking for smaller plates snacks you have to go here. If you are a fan of butternut squash, you need to try their butternut squash soup! The customer service was also amazing, our waitress was so sweet and accommodating. 100% recommend!

Martha M. Castro: Food is on point. Food is spectacular and fresh, with plates for every taste. Service is very friendly and very helpful. Drinks exceeded expectations.

Emily Crisan: Amazing food, drinks, and atmosphere! Do yourself a favor and get the grilled octopus and the braised short rib! Wonderful dinner and will definitely be back!

Colvin Will Do It: This is such a great restaurant!! The little portions are how I think American portions should be as well. I took my wife out to eat a great dinner and we were not disappointed. It was expensive but we knew that walking in.

Kaylun Draughn: Food and service were impressive. We ordered the octopus, mussels, arugula salad, duck, and crispy pork belly. Everything was cooked to perfection and came out pretty quickly. The churros were good but crispier than I typically like. I can’t wait to go back!

Jacob Fitzpatrick: Estadio has an outstanding menu that is small enough to navigate, but large enough to find something for all tastes. The unique tapas range from vegetarian flavors to unusual meats - but all with roots to Spain (and Basque Country). The vibe is hip and fun, but not overpowering or too loud. A definite DC gem!

Brandon Richardson: Yummy Tapas place. Indoor and outdoor seating. Mask required. The crispy cauliflower and chicken tapas were great! Well seasoned and delicious!

1789 Restaurant & Bar: what do users think?


Stefan Tobler: Absolutely superb. Delicious food, excellent service, warm and cozy dining room. We were a bit under dressed, definitely a sports coat kind of restaurant. If you are looking for a nice meal this is a place I would go back too. Great job 1789.

Andrew Bogdan: Had an excellent time grabbing dinner here! The food was absolutely amazing, and the art on the walls was fun to look at and made for great conversation. I ordered the eggplant and butternut squash soup. It was literally the best soup I have ever had in my life, absolutely amazing. The wine list was excellent as well. Really recommend for a private romantic date night!

Georgia Hensley: We had such a great experience visiting 1789. The food was delicious, the waiters were pleasant and the manager was so knowledgeable. He knew all the history and even about the Exorcist house and steps directly across the street. We enjoyed short ribs and sirloin, my brother in law had the halibut, we also tried the lobster and the octopus starters. They were so good. They even called our cab for us. We will def. return on our next visit to Georgetown. 1789 is located at 126 36 St.NW 20007

Norma Del Carmen: Last night in Georgetown and we wanted to try this Michelin star restaurant as a treat To end our thanksgiving weekend and 1789 Restaurant did not disappoint, it blew our tastes buds away! The butter squash soup we started out with was so amazing that we knew the rest of the dishes would get better and better. Be sure to take a video of how they present the soup…it happened so fast, great presentation. I had the brioche halibut and My tastebuds were just in heaven. Our bellies were full but we still wanted to enjoy the evening w deserts and it did not disappoint as well! Service was excellent ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ And the food was delivered quick. This is my new favorite restaurant in Georgetown by far and looking forward to coming back again!
Response: Thank you so much, Norma! We appreciate your positive feedback about your experience. We take pride in serving our customers and hope to see you again soon!

Gabriela Frank: One of the best fine dining experiences available in DC. Do not hesitate to visit for one of the best dining experiences of your life! Every single bite did not disappoint and you just can't go wrong with whatever you order. We started with the first round of drinks (Cardamom Bee's Knees & Brown Butter Old Fashioned) and knew in that moment we would be in for a special treat. We split the Ravioli dish, which had exceptionally seasoned mushrooms you could almost mistake them for beef. We ordered the Halibut and Duck dishes for main courses and every aspect of the dish was just pure slices of heaven on a fork. To top it off, we finished with the chocolate dessert and wished we had more room to eat more and drink more! High recommend for someone celebrating a special occasion, or want to impress someone with exceptional fine dining.

Tucker Jones: Excellent food and fabulous service. Such a great dining experience, one of the best in DC!! Desserts topped off an amazing dinner snd they were off the charts!
Response: Thank you, Tucker!

Wendy Reynolds: Great food in this restaurant. Staff was very polite and cooperative.
Response: Thank you so much, Wendy! We hope to see you again soon.

Marilyn Breedlove: For over 20 years I have enjoyed the 1789 restaurant. It had been about a year since I had dined here last. I'm very sorry to say they are not what they once were. My husband and I took my daughter for her 21st birthday dinner. At the end of the meal my husband and I agreed it was the worst $400 meal we had ever had. The plates looked lovely.. The best part of my meal was the bread and the very delicious butternut squash soup. The menu said sea scallops. And I was served bay scallops. The sauteed mushrooms were completely uncooked.

Katie Greener: Food was amazing and perfectly portioned! So much that we had to take home leftovers! Wonderful date night spot. Drinks were phenomenal as well…combinations complimented each other so nicely. We ended our meal with sharing the cheesecake with some coffee and couldn’t have been more satisfied.
Response: Thank you, Katie!

Ines R: This restaurant is located in Georgetown a couple of blocks up the hill from the main M street. The restaurant is quaint with low beamed ceilings and cobblestone floors. The walls were covered in hand drawn pictures of the Washington monument and other historical figures. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu. I had mine with the wine pairing for $165. Without the wine pairing it was $105. The food was good however I can't say it was great. None of the dishes really wowed me that is the reason for the 4 rating. I expected the food to wow. On several dishes I had to add salt and pepper. My favorite part of the meal was the ice cream topped with gold flakes. The wine pairings were very good. I would go again but I would order from the main menu versus the tasting menu. The service was impeccable!!!! From the valet to the servers. This is a romantic restaurant, a place for an intimate dining experience.

Filomena Ristorante: what do users think?


Patrick Young: I loved their Easter decorations! They really went all out and the decorations are more classic too and remind me of better times! Their bread appetizer with olive oil is very tasty and the wait service was impeccable. The waiter misheard my original order, but they quickly corrected it and got me my correct dish. Both of our dishes were delicious and had plenty of sauce. The dessert was scrumptious too! All of these were a reasonable price as well. If you are going out for a date, I highly recommend this place! It’s so far my favorite Italian restaurant in DC!

DC Explorer: Got delivery from this place after hearing good things and it didn't disappoint. The salad and foccocia are a meal themselves. The entrees are big enough to feed two people (entree pictured is half eaten). Pretty yummy Italian food, great quality, nice sauce. My favorite Italian place in DC is still the now defunct Dino's, but this place does a fine job.

A Smith: We've been here twice this month and loved it. The first time we didn't make reservations but they let us eat at the bar which was quite nice and the bartenders were awesome. Today is my birthday so we made reservations. It was quite busy but the service was still amazing. I'm quite picky as a New Yorker and someone who lived in Italy but I give this place 5 stars for the food, atmosphere, and service. A must see!

Jessica Lopez: The restaurant goes all out with seasonal decorations, this time around Easter time. It was a bit strange seeing so many bunnies but at the same time the over decorating is what many Italian grandmas do! Service was decent, not the best. Portions are huge so definitely recommend sharing especially because of the prices. The bread service with the olive oil and spices was delicious, raviolis were great and the eclair was so delicious and creamy, it tasted like profiteroles actually. Definitely recommend coming back.

Princess Good: I will eat at this restaurant every time I'm able to get to the area. I live out of state. The service was perfect, food was hot and delicious, and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. The bread is amazing!! One of my friends had chicken parmesan with a side of pasta, the other had a salad. I had rigatoni with chicken. We all enjoyed our food! Oh and the meatball appetizer is worth every bit of $16 although it only comes with two meatballs.

Laura Ruiz: My husband and me went to Georgetown to celebrate my birthday. We couldn’t make a reservation for dinner, however, we walked in around 3:30 and after a 5 minutes wait we had a table. The experience in this place was unforgettable. It started with three different kinds of homemade bread, follow for fresh appetizers, flavorful entrees, homemade amaretto and finally the best cannoli that we ever had.

Anthony Stewart: Spacious, friendly and really amazing fare. The host was magnanimous and his larger-than-life personality makes one feel welcome and as though the food will be authentically Italian, and the staff do not disappoint. The bread and pesto were brilliant, as were the stuffed mushroom starters. The main courses tasted amazing and arrived at our table in good time, allowing us the opportunity to experience how the meal tasted at all stages of temperature. Really great experience and one that makes one want to return again and again (and I’ll be happy to oblige). Unfortunately, a cupcake bakery not too far away got the better of our appetites before we dined at Filomena, so dessert was not on our menu for the afternoon’s meal, but next time! 5/5 well-deserved stars!

Larry Smith: First time visit. Filomena from the front looked small, but the doors opened to a wonderful dinning experience. The food was fantastic and large portions. I'm an eater and had trouble finding room to put the last bite. I finished it off with the biggest piece of strawberry cheesecake I've ever had in a commercial setting. Great overall experience. I will return.

Gerri Goh: We sat down to very American Italian meal of fried calamari, bruschetta (not pictured), burrata caprese, octopus salad, shrimp in lemon garlic butter sauce, slow-braised beef brisket stuffed ravioli, cremini mushrooms and pine nuts in an unctuous sauce of browned butter and veal stock with cream, cheese ravioli with meatballs, and rigatoni pasta in vodka sauce with grilled chicken. We finished all the appetisers but had to do a takeaway for the pastas. It was a tasty and well-executed meal. It was also very rich, heavy and unfortunately left us with no room for the tempting desserts on display. Filomena was an overall good dining experience - dining where A-list celebrities have dined, the service is top-notch, the food is good and the restaurant gives you Godfather feels; it is however for me a once for the adventure and maybe never again sort of restaurant (unless it's someone's choice for a meal in future) .

Inma Guerrero: We loved this crazy place. Uber decorated with Christmas things and on the expensive side. The pasta plates are huge, I guess you are supposed to share them and the chocolate cake super decadent. Great service too!

Darla Lehnert: It was a hidden gem. The private cabanas with outside heaters are super cool. the ability to svan a QR Code and have your drinks brought to you in just a min or two as well as Cali Burger and another food truck to choose from. I went on a Tbursday to play Drag Queen Bingo and had the best time. The show was fantastic and the Bingo games were hilarious. The prizes were shots and flare the girls brought for everyone.

India Lindsay: A solid day drinking spot to spend the day. Brightly decorated with fun colors. Have 2 food trucks on site. Plenty of seating. We went on a rainy evening and they had enough covered areas to seat everyone. Cocktails are all fairly sweet and about $14. I asked the bartender to half the simple syrup and they were very friendly and accompanying.

Caleb Anderson: I've been here multiple times and still love coming! It's a great place to meet up with friends or a date, especially if you plan on staying for a while. The selection is great and the option of your beer coming in a liter stein adds to the vibe!

Dianne Maglaque: Went on a Saturday afternoon, and it was packed! We were able to find seating after a few laps around the place. We had a great time and even a plus is that they are dog friendly. The brats from CaliBurger were amazing as well.

William Gant: probably one of the best beer gardens of the DMV. Great selection of beers and they also have wine and cocktails for those who don't like the brew. Lost of space to spread out and relax, and it doesn't sound like bee hive like the other infamous beer garden a bit north, and you don't have to yell at your friend when you are talking. They have a great food truck that makes really good classic burgers and fries. They also have cabans you can reserve for private parties.

Wyatt Benson: As my first time to a biergarten, this was impressive though a bit haphazard owing to its pop-up origins. Drinks were varied and good, service was prompt, food was excellent. Try and reserve a cabana ahead of time for the best experience.

Austin von Heeringen: Crystal and Katrina put on the best Sunday drag show in the DC area. It’s hands down the best part of this establishment. Sad to hear they are only once a month instead of every Sunday this summer. 10/10 recommend.

Christine West: Great outdoor space with really great food truck options rotating through! And So. Many. Dogs!

Louis Caponi: Sunday’s Kiki at Wundergarten with Crystal Edge and Katrina "The Hurricane" Colby is my FAVORITE drag show in DC! This outdoor beer garden is a gorgeous event venue that's typically empty unless there's a soccer game or Drag Queens. Even during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kiki provided a safe space for lip sync numbers, sense of community, love, sass, and bingo! (Super clean new bathrooms too)

Junaid O: Great selections of beer and yummy hot dogs. Perfect for covid restrictions, you order online and they get your orders quick. They are dog friendly and even have a dog beer :) you'll probably get to pet some cute dogs. Highly recommend!

Equinox Restaurant: what do users think?


Weekend Warrior: Overall it was a great dining experience. The restaurant wasn't overly loud and it had an intimate vibe. We felt secluded enough in our table. The service was a bit slow to start, we waited over 20 min just to get our drink orders in. But then it picked up and we got our 5 course sampler and it was great. Some of the best food I've had.

Joshua Wiley: Went here for one of my many birthday dinners. As a new vegetarian this place definitely had a menu with me in mind. I was stuffed when I left. We had the menu with five courses and enjoyed every single one of them. Amazing. Would definitely go again, don’t know the price because i didn’t pay. 😇

Archana Raju: This place has been on my must try restaurants list forever, and finally made it on my birthday. We tried the five course meal. While each dish was carefully thought through and well presented, I think the beet salad didn’t really work (it was bitter) and grilled eggplant was a bit bland. Though I don’t typically enjoy mushrooms as much, I was blown by the Hen of mushrooms dish, and absolute winner. Overall, I would recommend this place!

Sunny Sanghani: Enjoyed the vegan brunch menu; lots of food and all tasted great.

Angela Su: We came for restaurant week and it was a great deal! Loved the plant based options. We had to wait 15 min for our table after we arrived on time for our reservation but it was worth it once we were seated. The mushroom dish was delicious and the portions for all courses were huge. Definitely ended the meal full and satisfied.

Henry Jones: A friend of my family told me ages ago to eat sometime at Equinox. I finally did this evening and am so glad. I had the truffled macaroni and cheese to begin, which was served in a mini cast iron vessel and tasted of cheese and herbs in a way that I could never achieve at home. Then I had the fennel-spiced Mediterranean turbot filet. The staff were very proud of the turbot—one saw it as he walked past and said, “oh you ordered the turbot,” with a big smile. If I were on the staff of a place that served food like this, I would be very proud, too. The turbot was meaty, slightly flaky, and golden on top. It was served on a bed of spinach, a carrot, roasted heart of palm, and braised endive, and there was an orange sauce. It was garnished with fried rings which I think were potatoes and there were red berries, too. I was there for an early dinner, having planned for a long afternoon at the National Gallery followed by early dinner before the final leg of a train trip from NYC to Virginia. The staff made sure the timing was right for me to get to the train and that I knew how to get to Union Station. What thoughtful people and exquisite food. I can hardly wait to eat at Equinox again.

Marlon Young: Vegan (plant-based) food isn't difficult to find in DC. However, it is a daunting to task to have an enjoyable fine dining experience as a vegan. Equinox delivered! The plant-based dish options weren't insulting, glorified salads. The flavor profiles of my selections were indicators of the THOUGHTFULNESS Chef Todd puts into ALL of his creations. The price point wasn't a concern because I went expecting to spend around $85-$100 per person. I spent that and got every penny worth in service, ambiance, and especially FOOD. It was the ideal dinner to wrap up a date night full of miniature golf and art museums. We will be back to try the Vegan Brunch, suggested to us by the bartender (who doubled as our phenomenal server).

Celal Gulluoglu: Fine dining? Please first repair the failing of the bathroom. Service was below average. They were carrying the beverage with their bare hands and holding the soup bowls on top of the bowls. Not even under it. Automatically added gratuity which is not written at anywhere. Full price charge for the kids under 10 years old? Tasting brunch menu was definitely not worth the price. Desserts were horrible. They were literally sliced protein bar, store bought mini cupcakes and coconut bites and they call it Brandi’s assorted desserts. Felt like scammed. Will never return 👎

The Girls: The zero-waste concept sounds great but didn’t see it happening within the menu. The apps and first courses were better than the main dishes. The dust devil drink is fab. Oddly, many of the plants were plastic. And the chairs stored in the ladies’ room makes it NOT wheelchair accessible. The kind and attentive servers were grand.

Meghan Joyce: Mother's day brunch was delicious. Vegan food with full flavor and fresh ingredients. Service was attentive and friendly. They were able to accommodate a nut allergy with no problem. We even got a photo with Chef Todd. Will definitely return!

Gravitas: what do users think?


Kerry Carlson: What a great dining experience. Our server was super helpful with cocktail and wine advice. The online menu shows a 3 and 5 course option, but we were only shown the 5-course option and had to ask for the 3-course option. It's "pre-theatre" and only available in the first hour of service, though we were there for longer; we arrived in the 5 o'clock hour. Cocktails were gorgeous and delicious, though super, super pricey (one was $28). The food was tasty, and I appreciated that it leaned heavily on local and fresh. Parking is tough, and signs are badly marked and inconsistent, so give yourself some time to figure that out. They have a private room in the upper level.

Saud Anam: Underwhelming. Poor pacing - 5 course meal took about 3 hours. Good service, extremely slow kitchen. For the Michelin star and the price, food expected should be better. Other similarly priced and recognized restaurants delivered better food and experience. Bill including 5 course tasting menu, caviar course, drinks for 2 people - $610 including tip. At 305 per person, the food and experience should be stellar, not poorly paced and mediocre.

abigail snoznik: Wonderful dinner! We had the tasting menu with wine pairing and added caviar course, and everything was delicious. I especially loved the Crispy Sweetbreads and Maine Lobster. For a cocktail try the Where There's Smoke, There's Fire- it was amazing! Highly recommend.

Andrew Platou: Last Thursday evening, I had one of the most memorable dining experiences ever, and certainly the best in the last ten years of eating out a LOT all over the country. Gravitas DC's Chef's counter, with it's 15+ courses is certainly a splurge, but if anything is splurge worthy, this IS it. Watching the "ballet" in the kitchen is always fun, but sitting adjacent to the pass and watching the finishing and expediting of the regular menu (wow!) was a new and treasured experience. I've posted a few photo's, but they hardly capture the beauty, precision, creativity, and utter deliciousness within each and every course. Looking back, the highest praise that I can give is that when the chef's asked my favorites, it was honestly impossible to say, as I wanted to have all of them again and again and again. It was pretty cool seeing the honeycomb (pic) as part of our cheese course. I am already anticipating a return to Gravitas in the not too distant future.

Silvia Noelia: The service was exquisite!! 💕 Celebrated my dad’s birthday at Gravitas and we received impeccable attention with our waiter and everyone else who was part of our food service! The food was delightful and I would recommend anyone to try their 3 or 5 course meal at Gravitas! Angelo was awesome and everyone made us feel welcomed! Thank you Gravitas for making my dads day special!

Nicholas Miles: my friend brought me here to celebrate my bday. the place is beautiful. the service was fine. my cocktail was delicious. however, i wasn’t overly impressed by the meal in general.

Katherine Lu (Ljumeg): The only thing impressed me was that I had a shell in my dish that I found it in my mouth. [see pic 7] I told the mixologist about the shell he said he was sorry about that. He would check the kitchen. That was it. So I guess a apology is enough for a shell which should not be in your dish and might hurt you in a Michelin restaurant? I had this dinner last month, I try to understand why this happened like this, think should I write it down here? yap after a month still feel unbelievable.

Maxine Segarnick Keefe: My husband and I arrived on time for our reservation in the main dining room. We then sat for over 20 minutes without anyone stopping at our table. I was baffled to wait this long for a server to welcome us or take drink orders -- especially at a Michelin starred restaurant. Eventually, a waiter came by and asked how we were doing and seemed genuinely surprised that no one had helped us yet. I understand restaurants get busy (tables were almost full), but this is not the service I would expect at this price point and with a star. Disappointing start. The service was better once we placed our orders, and the staff was friendly. The food was very tasty and creative, but we walked away feeling less than full -- I have felt fuller and much better cared for at other similarly priced and recognized restaurants in the area.

Caleb Blackiston: Really nice tasting menu at $150. Nice atmosphere as well. Had a wonderful server that really made the night. I didn't get his name, but he had a pony tail. Thanks, Pony tail guy.

Lily Pitha: The food was fantastic and imaginative. From the first course to the last everything was delicious. The wait staff were completely perfect. We had the special experience of sitting at the kitchen and getting a menu chosen by the chefs. In addition to the great food we also saw how the kitchen ran and time and effort put into plating and presentation. Would absolutely recommend!

Roofers Union: what do users think?


Jesse P: We went on a Friday night when it was very busy at surrounding restaurants and bars. To my surprise we got in immediately and sat right away. We had a nice window seat and could look down and see the street and nightlife. The online ordering system was easy to navigate. After ordering drinks, they were almost instantly brought out. The food soon came and was piping hot. The burger was delicious and cooked to the perfect medium rare. Great vibes and service. Huge drink selection including draft beer.

james firsick: Staff kicked myself and my girlfriend out after one drink. Her drink was too strong and spit some out due to that and we we’re promptly escorted out for no reason. Drinks are very mediocre and over priced. Your money can be spent much better in DC.

Anica Landreneau: Everything you loved about the Reef without the aquariums. I have great memories of the rooftop bar from when i moved to DC 17 years ago. The roof is still one of the greatest spots in Adams Morgan for a drink with a view.

Jed Barnes: Their food and atmosphere were good. Their online ordering system was not. It's super anti social to be out with friends and constantly going back to your phone. They also expect a standard gratuity for providing less then half the service, which is ridiculous.

Michael William Majorczak: Amazing Place. Sunday Brunch. It’s called a Hot Mess. Man was it good. Fried Egg over a boneless chicken thigh over potatoes with sausage gravy!The Bloody Mary was excellent and an awesome beer menu with some great craft sour Beers.

Danny Donovan: Cant really comment on Roofer's Union as a whole but stopped in on a Thursday night for a few drinks and eats. We decided to sit in the rooftop lounge area which is covered and heated and has a bathroom of it's own. From what the bartender stated, the menu on the rooftop differs just a bit from the main bar/dining area a floor below. But since we just ordered wings etc. it was perfect. Nice selection of beer too. Had fun and would most certainly visit again

Sharon Kotovsky: Excellent food - always! Fun place to hang out with friends on the rooftop bar in Adam's Morgan. Service is friendly, bartenders are great, and you will leave very happy!
Response: Thank you Sharon! Come see us again soon!

L B: 75 minute time limit is insane even with COVID. 120 minutes is reasonable for limit. Also, food and drinks all came in plastic and one-use plastic silverware/paper plates was not ok for the high prices. It’s also very poor for the environment. Additionally, requiring one food item per guest is not reasonable as some guests could just get two drinks for the same price.

Julia Sellers: Went to Roofer’s Union for brunch. My two friends did bottomless and I got a coffee. Our server come by often to refill my friends drinks, but not once asked me or refilled my coffee and left us waiting for him for about 15 minutes after we got the checks. The eggs Benedict was good, but the brunch menu is pretty limiting unless you want everything fried and greasy. They also ran out of OJ- a cardinal sin for a Sunday brunch in DC. Probably not returning any time soon.

Peter Fernandez: Hip 2nd floor place in Adams Morgan. Very bright with great views of the neighborhood out of floor to ceiling windows. Service is friendly and prompt. Bloody Marys were tasty, food was very good.
