Mount Desert Island Ice Cream: what do users think?


Jacqueline Telljohann: My husband and I were looking for desert and found this spot just down the street from where we are housesitting. We split a flight with: - Blueberry Sour Cream Crumble - Real Strawberry - Butterbeer - Bay of Figs My favorite flavors were Strawberry and Blueberry Sour Cream Crumble. You could tell the strawberry ice cream was actually made with strawberries. The Butterbeer wasn't as flavorful as I was expecting. If you like unique ice cream flavors, this spot is worth checking out.

Elizabeth Dou: The best ice cream place in the area! Super clean inside with friendly staff. Lots of fun flavors including the standard chocolate and vanilla. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful. The lemon berry poppy seed was a unique flavor that tasted amazing. There is a small outdoor seating area with a benches next door.

Bradley Farster: My daughter and I love this place! They have some very creative flavors, and their recipes have natural ingredients and flavorings. Their maple walnut is amazing, and my daughter loves the gluten-free/dairy-free blueberry basil sorbet. Be sure to check it out if you are in the area!

Jessica Long: Went there last night. We got the salted caramel, which was a little too salty. We got the coffee, which was good to me, but too bitter to my girlfriend. We got the pralines and cream, which we thought was the best. We got the pretzel and toffee, which needed more toffee to pretzel ratio and not just dark chocolate. It was weird that the single allowed for 1.5 flavors, but the double couldn’t accommodate 3 flavors with 1 full scoop and two half scoops. Hence why we got some many flavors because I had to upgrade to the triple. We got one other flavor, but unsure what it was. There is a long line at night, but they didn’t cut us off, which was nice. There’s are to sit outside the shop, which was also nice.

Stephanie G: Truly fantastic. My spouse, who is obsessed with trying different flavors of ice cream, declared the Blueberry Sour Cream ice cream the best he's ever had. I had the cucumber lime sorbet which had fresh chunks of the titular flavors in it and was amazing. A gem of Mount Pleasant.

Alicia D: A balance between some staples and a rotation in of new flavors keep me coming back. The cones are fresh, but they may run out of the waffle cone in the evening. The first time I went, I was disappointed by the tiny scoop size, but since then, they have been more generous with the scoop. I forget to take a picture every time, but the pictures from the other reviews reflect what I have had and seen.

Amy Chiou: You can get two flavors in a single which is just so fun. I loved their buttermint which I paired with cookies and cream for a wonderful combination. My friend said her strawberry paired with lemon was fantastic. We may have gone two days in a row...

Megan Miller: Bay of Figs is my favorite ice cream flavor on the planet. I live in Colorado and I’ve tried to reproduce it at home with no luck. It’s smooth, creamy, sweet, bitter. So. Good.

J C: Came on a friday night and they didnt have waffle cones??? Besides that the ice cream was pretty average. I did not like the Kulf(?) flavor. The blueberry one was good. Im highly critical of Jeni’s and Jeni’s is better than this.

J Acharya: Very fun creative flavors! Highly recommend getting the blueberry sour cream crumble!

Hershey's Ice Cream: what do users think?


Scott O'Brien: Good ice cream selection. Friendly service. Good ice cream. Good location.

Selim Yaman: The servers, especially the Afghan-Turkish young lady, were so helpful! Thank you!

Kevin Lanes: I ordered a banana shake, was told I had to pay an additional .75 for the banana.. cool.. not really but ok… the shake was TERRIBLE!! An $8.00 glass of milk with bananas in it. I’ve gone to another Hershey location and had an amazing banana shake. This dude clearly has no idea what he’s doing. Idk why I even paid for it.. SMH

Atory: I first felt a little hesitant ordering one at here as this place seemed old, but while I was ordering and waiting for my ice cream, i saw super clean floor and counter top. I didn’t even see any dust at the corners of everything. Also staff was very friendly. My Ice cream was also good.

Vlad Tomsa: Horribly tasting espresso as well as a butchered latte at extremely expensive prices. Think fancy coffee shop prices with fast food quality, to avoid. Didn't taste the ice-cream but it looked to be of poor quality too.

Michael Shallal: After spending $32 I asked for a washroom they pointed to the Starbucks across the street. 🤨
Response: it is not about how much you spend if we do not have we try to help you to find the closes place dose have a washroom.

Brenda Vasquez: Smoothies aren’t sweet at all. Watered down and overpriced. Also who charges 75 cents for whip cream???

Sunil Puri: Terrible service. Overpriced. No tasting of ice cream

David Parrett: The chocolate peanut butter ice cream here is my favorite.

Misha Pazdera: The best place after a day trip in DC. Super place near Crescent Trail and C&O Cannal. We are frequent guests here and we will definitely be back. The staff is nice and helpful.

Larry's Homemade Ice Cream: what do users think?


Audrey Osburn: Larry’s is awesome! Wonderfully homemade ice cream without so many of the additional ingredients/preservatives/emulsifiers that big companies use. Not to mention Larry himself was there! He’s a gentleman and made my boyfriend I feel welcome and made us laugh. Great atmosphere and ice cream here.
Response: Thank you for coming to Larry's and for your sweet review❣️ We are so pleased you enjoyed your Homemade Ice Cream❣️

Lloyd Spencer: My vanilla chocolate chip ice cream cone with a perfect ending to a very long day. Homemade ice cream that is very creamy and actually made by the owner.👍👍
Response: Thank you for your sweet review! We're so happy you enjoyed your ice cream cone!

Nate B: This place was great. The ice cream was really good. Service was fantastic. It is a little hidden gem that has been there over 30 years. I would definitely recommend this place.
Response: Thank you for your Sweet review! We think you're a gem too!

Sophronia Vachon: This place truly is a hidden gem! The ice cream was delicious and not too sugary, prices were reasonable for the part of town (near Dupont Circle). But the best part is the owner Larry! He has a sarcastic sense of humor and had us laughing the entire time. I think some people mistake his humor for rudeness, but we loved it.
Response: Thanks for your sweet stars and sweet review!

Eamon Kostopulos: Larry is a just man who has been put on this Earth to do one thing, serve delicious ice cream. His loving but firm attitude is purely for efficiency. If you have had a bad experience at this place it is purely because you didn’t live up to Larry’s standards. The ice cream is top notch in DC and I can easily say I will be going again.
Response: Thank you, finally someone who understands Larry! We are, so please you had a great experience and will be coming back. Can't wait to see you again❣️

Lacey LeCroy: Best ice cream. It has that homemade creamy flavor. The strawberry cheesecake flavor is amazing. My son says it is the best vanilla he has ever had. And Larry is a funny guy too.
Response: Thank you for your sweet review! We're very happy your little man loved his Vanilla ice cream!

Frazier Gray: Was not impressed. Larry's was recommended, but found the older guy (presumably the owner) to be a bit crass and too familiar with foul language. Moreover, you have allllll these delicious sounding flavors, but cannot taste any of them before paying $5.91 for one scoop + 1.99 for a waffle cone + 10% tax (times 2) + milkshakes $9.10 + tax (times 2)... for $37. PLEASE Stop citing COVID as the reason that you cannot give samples (even Rita's give samples now, along with other creameries), when you are not even wearing masks and no visible COVID protocols in place...just sounds like a cost saving measure that is not being passed on to the customers.

Holly Gross: Just wrapping up our trip in DC and stopped by for ice cream. Excellent selection and so tasty! Larry kept us entertained too. Funny guy!
Response: Thank you for your sweet review and visiting Larry's during your trip into DC!

MATIAS STIPICEVIC ETCHEGARAY: The worst experience I’ve ever had in Washington DC. Larry was rude, disrespectful and denigrated my family because we are Latin. Absolutely shameful and disgusted by his attention. I don’t recommend this place at all. You can buy ice cream from CVS a block from here and its way better and overall will be a happier experience. Don’t come to this place.

David Goldstein: Been here before and prices were much higher than they should be, but ok it’s DuPont. Came in tonight and the gentleman behind the counter had such a rude tone and just came across grouchy. If you’re going to charge over $6 for a cookie bar the service better be top notch. There are other places more worth your dollars than this one.
Response: Hello Mr.Goldstein, It's a shame you feel that way Sir. The cookie you refer to is called the Incredible Cookie. It is a 5 layer brownie that has been made by us since 1984, nearly 40 yrs. We are one of the institutions whch have survived more than two resetions, roits and now covid. We are not rich enough to use cheap ingredients and sell mediocre goods. When asked if it is any good, in reference to products we've sold for so long, we usually always answer back with sarcastic humor. Lawrence J Cenkci Owner

Ben & Jerry’s: what do users think?


Brian Copes: Disclosure- I’m not an ice cream regular eater, but I did have it so here’s my take. Menu - honestly, I wanted a white chocolate flavor but I didn’t see that listed on the menu. I had the strawberry cheesecake (small cup) and it was tasty! Real cheesecake and fresh strawberries too. The staff was super patient with me reading the huge menu. My date got very berry sorbet that was fresh and tasty. I’ll be getting that next time. It’s a nice location for a quick cool treat to help with the summer heat. I would go back to this location again. I say try them out yourself.
Response: Thanks so much! White Chocolate! What a great idea! Thanks for the review!

Lucette Mercer: Ok. I’m a B&J’s fan, almost a groupie. So I was thrilled to see the sign and didn’t mind the line. So it sucked that my only choice was to get my fave Cherry Garcia in the pre-packed pint, but chocolate is a worthy replacement…Then I screwed up and added chocolate sprinkles. They were a bit off. I mean, it was good chocolate ice cream, but it didn’t quite live up to B&J’s. Folks were working hard and pretty efficiently but I also was a little a bit grossed out by the non-service dog in the line and the freezer case (see 3rd pic).
Response: Thanks for the stars! Sorry we missed some! Case was being repaired all good now! and we really cant challenge folks that have "service animals". We kinda have to let that ride. Come try us again and we will get the other two! Thanks

Matthew Fauske: Big fan of using Groupons here. Did that again today and it doesn’t disappoint. Waffle cone Sunday with m&ms, whipped cream and hot fudge and a nice cold brew coffee brownie ice cream.

Shrey Sanger: The ice cream flavour selection is pretty limited and the flavours available in the tubs and as scoops are different. Not ideal, but still ok. But the staff is the absolute worst. One guy serving was probably high and in no state to work. Asked us if we were ready three times in thirty seconds. Then his colleague came over and harassed us. Really bad experience. Get your ice-cream elsewhere.

Logan Hobbs: Super dank, get a Krazy kone for ur cream too

brett hadley: I love I've cream... I haven't had Ben and Jerry in a long time. Well... It was a disappointment. This place doesn't hold a candle to Handel’s. I guess we are spoiled in California. But for the price... I had much higher expectations. This place was expensive and the portions tiny. Would not recommend at all. Cheaper to buy a pint at the store.

Sean Murphy: The line here can get a bit long during peak tourist times (especially later at night), but the staff was always friendly and fast. The flavors were plentiful and served with a smile. I’ll always go with Chunky Monkey, but it’s nice to have options.

Jessica Long: They provided good service at the end of the night staying open a little after closing time to provide us with ice cream! Only downer was that all the flavors listed were not available. But otherwise, we were glad to get what we could!
Response: Super! always trying to keep in everyone's favorites! We try to keep it all in stock but sometimes all the flavors are not available for us to order through B&J's

Veronica Soto: Super friendly employees! The only thing I wished for was that they had Rocky Road so I got a simple 2 scoops of chocolate and vanilla in a cone instead, and it was delicious regardless. Wait time was quick; it’s a bit pricey though which I expected because it’s located in such a nice area. There’s also a nice photo op with cow statues that you can sit on at the storefront.
Response: Way to improvise! Maybe we will work on that flavor for next year!

Maylinn On Route: Very helpfull man behind the counter. We purchased icecream via a Groupon deal and he made sure we were served in a very neat way. Amazing icecream. We will be back!

Southwest Soda Pop Shop: what do users think?


Kristy Kairos: Mango ice cream was incredibly good. Lemonade drink to die for. Proud to say it’s black business owned. Great for your sweet tooth needs. Will be going back again.

Kris: Amazing shop! Staff is super friendly ! Not only is the ice cream options amazing the food options are good! Definitely recommend

Nick Webster: Southwest Soda Pop Shop is a cute outdoor ice cream and soda stand. Serving soft serve and scoop ice creams , floats, and sodas. A wonderful stop on the north end of the newly opened DC Wharf. Look closely for the shop since there is still a lot of construction. It is located on Maine Ave directly in front of the Seafood Market. There is ample bench seating under a shaded awning. It will be even nicer to visit once the construction is completed.

Shenita Y White: Best soft serve ice cream ever! It is so smooth and creamy with just the right amount of sweetness and vanilla! I had vanilla in a medium cup (but wish I gotten the large). There’s always tomorrow! Sorry about the photo, it was basically gone by the time I thought to take a picture.

Dondré: This is a great outdoor quick ice cream shop. The staff is cool and the smoothie I ordered was good. They offer all kinds of ice cream, banana splits, milk shakes, smoothies and more. They have ice cream sandwhiches made of real cookies and your choice of ice-cream flavor.

Udim Isang: Have to support black businesses!! I would say the customer crevice could've been a little better and I did not like waiting for an hour in the heat, but when I got to the front and recieved my ice cream, I was a happy camper. Ill just come back in the fall/winter when they ones are a little shorter lol

Ryan Connor: Cashier was rude. "I don't see why everyone thinks I need to take their credit cards..." because customers can't see the card slot in the sun glare? Get a better attitude cashier!

Roniqua Jeffries: So good! A must stop ice cream shop at the wharf on the fresh seafood side. Pictured is the cherry blossom ice cream sandwich on sugar cookies. Ask about their secret menu. This is a walk up shop with no indoor seating. There are some pub tables outside. On my last visit they were selling hotdogs and half smokes as well as ice cream.

Margie Nguyen: Waited in line for about 20 minutes around 2:00 on a Saturday. Very nice people and great treats! Can’t wait to come back and try other flavors! Wanted to come out to support a local black owned family business!

Raiana Berman: Heard some great reviews and always ready to support a B.O.B., I decided to try it out for myself a few weeks ago. My friend got a chipwich and really enjoyed it. I ordered the cake explosion and immediately saw a hair baked into the brownie sitting right on top. The line to address this was over 30 min wait so I threw it out and took a loss. Customer service could be better and possibly more seating to accommodate all the customers in their long line.

Sequoia DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mark Blanchard: Samples galore! The staff really loves it when you try samples. They encourage it, and they're super nice. Best gelato in the dmv area. They have a large number of flavors, traditional flavors as well as unique and original ones. Can't wait to go back! Need a few more trips there.
Response: Thank you. 🙏🏻

A.J. Carlson: Fantastic gelato, especially the sorbet. Had a mind-opening, out-of-body experience with the passion fruit sorbet. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you for the visit and the feedback. We are preparing new amazing flavors. Please stop by again. Dolci Gelati

Heidi Liou: The lady working was so kind and let me sample a lot of flavors! I ended up going with one scoop fig marscapone and another scoop of birthday cake. Loved the vibe of the store even, but you have to get lucky to snag the indoor seating (fits 2 people). They did bring out outdoor seating as well (two tables, two chairs for each table).
Response: Please visit us again. Now that we can accommodate more customers inside, we added more tables and chairs. 🙏🏻

Saint Eloise: I have been here before. Today I got the blueberry mint, almond coconut, and strawberry something. It was great per usual.
Response: So glad you think so! Thank you for taking the time to review 😃

Christina Redden: The dark chocolate was hella dark and delicious! I also had the honey/marscapone/fig and it was unique and amazingly good too! The staff was happy, helpful, and patient as we made the incredibly difficult choice between flavors. They also had these adorable mini-cones and frozen dog treats!!!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Coco Wander: BEST CANNOLIS IN DC. Hands down. and don't even get me started on the gelato. the FLAVORS. oh boy...... Really put a smile on my masked up face. The staff also made my group feel so welcome and were so patient with our excitement. I was so impressed by this place.
Response: So glad to hear that!! Thank you SO much for your feedback

Conor O'Reilly: When I came in I was immediately asked if I wanted to try a sample! I had a sample of the banana and praline which was delicious. Ultimately I ended up getting a small cup of the tiramisu gelato which I loved. I noticed they have a ton of vegan options which is awesome! They also have an espresso machine so I'll definitely be back to try a latte!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Raymond Jordan: We visited Dolci Gelati at DC Zoo in early April. The ice cream topped funnel cakes were a must have for us adults as the zoo was closing. The baby girl wanted the Italian Ice. Great way to end our day trip ! Thank You
Response: Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate it very much. Please come back to visit us in the near future. Dolci Gelati Team.

Yer Yang: Great flavors and variety. The espresso was potent, which I loved! The chocolate was rich and creamy. The white chocolate raspberry was delicious too. We got the macaroons and the lemon was not fresh. Unlike the other two, it was very chewy and tough. For that reason, I rate this place a 4-star.
Response: 🙏🏻

Adesh Saxena: Great locally crafted Gelato to Die for. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Croissants are baked fresh. Now they also sell dry pasta, olive oils and balsamic 00 pizza flour Imported from Italy..
Response: Thank you.🙏🏻

Lulabelle's Sweet Shop: what do users think?


Y Dzi: Staff is notably nice and friendly. The Honey Graham ice cream is going to make you lose your mind (if you like graham cracker crust)! The Jasmine Blueberry ice cream is very good. There are other options such as coffee, tea, snacks, and fun merchandise to pick up. It is a nice place to stop for a 'pick-me-up' and a sweet topping to a good day (or a rescue from a difficult day). If you are in the neighborhood, make a stop before you head to your destination, it's worth it!

leo v: A fun place for grownups and kids. A quaint Petworth fixture with tons of sweets (and few savory) choices. The ice cream is Taharka, which is local and good. There are donuts, cupcakes and good hot and ice coffee (which reminds me of Qualia's...yum) to go with it...and a ton more. They often have granola, which they bake there... that is also one of my faves. This place can do no wrong!

Jessica Long: I had the single scoop of coffee Oreo and pistachio with the combo colorful sprinkles. It was very tasty. I would say a regular sized compostable spoon would be nicer than a wooden sample spoon.

Bianca S: What a cute place! The decor is adorable and the ice cream is delicious. I loved the peanut butter which I am normally not a fan of and the watermelon. The watermelon was very refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day. I also had a iced dirty chai which I thoroughly enjoyed! They also have lots of cute nick nacks and sweets throughout out the store which are reasonably priced.

Stephanie King: Stopped in for a ice cream and the flavors looked delicious. Caramel crunch was perfect for the hot weather

Danny Kim: The icecream is extremely flavorful, and is one of the better ice creams I have had. The taste is rich, and you can absolutely taste the flavor. The shop is small and colorful with a few chairs around. I would probably not get it with Banana Sprinkles, only because you don't taste the Sprinkles as well since the icecream flavor is really overpowering.
Response: Thank you for the review!

Tom Hertz: Great pastry. Try the pistachio ice cream. Great meats and cheeses. Not cheap, however...

Ellen Conover: This is such a sweet neighborhood ice, cream place. While flavor selection is limited, what the have is tasty. The staff is friendly and they always have fun merch to peruse while you wait or eat. Very glad they made it through the pandemic & are happy to see them open their doors again.

Paul Krysiak: Cute place , amazing ice cream, do yourself a favor and treat yourself 😁

Kelly G: Super cute shop. Ice cream is delicious!! And at a reasonable price (for dc standards). Unique small business, nice staff.. i’ll definately be back.. yummm😊🍦 🍨

Roof Terrace Restaurant: what do users think?


Jeff Luttrell: RTR is a pretty good place for dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. The restaurant has the classic aesthetic of the Kennedy Center with beautiful views from the terrace outside the restaurant. The staff were friendly enough though our waiter didn't talk with us too much. Food service was quick which is to be expected for those going to performances. The quality of the food is okay. All of our entrees were hot but just okay taste wise. Pretty good selection for vegetarians and the fish choices are nice too! We'll come back and try it again as we go to the KC often.

Ron Milkowski: I have never been to the Kennedy Center and had no idea that there even was a restaurant. What a very nice dining experience. Santo our waiter was very knowledgeable with the food and drinks. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Even if you are not going to an event I highly recommend checking it out.

Anusha Chatterjee: Wonderful bar service! The food was so good. Had the tuna carpaccio and the salmon. Both were absolutely perfect! Lovely seasonal Cocktails. Perfect stop before or after the show. The bar has the full menu, so no reservations were needed. Lovely intimate vibe.

Craig Herrick: We’ve been here a number of times over the years though this was the first visit in two years. The Terrace has upped their game. My lamb chops and wife’s fillet would go over well in any finer local venue. The service was prompt and professional and based around our show time. Terrace maintains most of its vintage (60’s) vibe which is what I like about it.

Stu: Read some negative reviews before going to the Roof Terrace restaurant, and had some concerns. I will say that this was a lovely place and a rather elegant atmosphere. The food was fine- especially the seasoned fries. Delicious! We each had a fish dish, which at nearly forty dollars each I found to be drastically overpriced. Even at ten dollars less it would have been overpriced. Yet the meals were tasty, though not very filing. They came with the tiniest bit of vegetables. The service was excellent, and my concerns about inattentive service or being rushed were proven false. In all, it is a very nice place to go that is the ultimate in convenience if you are going to a Kennedy Center performance. But you pay for that convenience in very high restaurant prices. Would I return? Probably, but this is not a place I'd be able to afford very often.

Myrna Linzy: Very good. Waitress was very good in helping me with which meal. Picked my drinks. Awesome place.

Catina Carter: The food and service was outstanding. Wonderful place to have a beautiful experience of class. The views were wonderful as well.

Mary Robinson: Wonderful dinner before a show. Cant beat the views! Professional service throughout the meal.

Veronica Coleman: Wonderful evening at the Kennedy Center and dining at the Roof Terrace Restaurant. Great food. Great music.

Phil Cooke: Great setting at the Kennedy Center, ideal for pre show dinner. Service was excellent; overall, food was very good. Our party of four got fish, with the bass being the best, by far. Others, trout and salmon, were just okay. It is a little pricey, but the setting, service and convenience make it worth it.

Founding Farmers DC: what do users think?


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

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

Jon Schemanske: Really fresh, delicious breakfast! We tried the waffle, pancake, and egg scramble. Obviously made in house - really delicious. Pancakes and waffles were exceptional. Egg scramble was very savory. The coffee is way better than your average breakfast place. Service was quick and friendly. Recommended!
Response: Thank you so much, Jon! -Najjah :)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

India Gate Restaurant & Bar: what do users think?


Mairelys Concepción (Mai): Do not go! The food is average for what it costs, bad service, the waitress was rude, the cook, or owner, I don't know, he wanted to charge us twice for the proposal when it was only one bill. In short, a bad place that is not worth it.

santa kafley: This is the worst restaurant in the world. What a disgusting food they serve their customers? Please don't go to this restaurant, I got sick with their food.

Janet Gonzalez: My friend and I had food poisoning from this place on our last night at DC. Everything we ordered had no taste. Tandoori chicken was not half chicken as described on menu but 4 drumsticks - tasted old and salty. The rice, bread, samosa all had old taste ( something that’s been sitting out for a while). I kept hearing the microwave in the background. Do not go there.

James Bradford: I came here specifically because they advertised a lunch buffet between 11 and 2. When I arrived I saw a buffet set up in the corner but it didn't look like it was actually in use. I asked the waitress what was going on and she said if I wanted buffet she would just bring me food and as I had already walked all the way over here I conceded. she then proceeded to bring me three small bowls of a selection of Indian food items that were not of my choosing as well as rice and naan. so unlike an actual Buffet where you would be able to pick and choose the items you want to try, it seems you are stuck with eating whatever it is they drag out for you. I had to pay $5 extra for vegetable samosas which was an item I actually wanted but had no way of knowing whether or not it would be included. the food is not bad it's just mediocre and to be perfectly honest they seem very annoyed when you ask to replenish anything you finished which is of course the opposite of the point of a buffet. I will never come back here. My total cost with the buffet samosas and one iced tea and tax was around $21

Katina Harkins: The owners were very friendly, the rice was fluffy, and the chana was very flavorful. It was very empty the weekday that I visited during lunch. If you want to avoid a crowd at lunch and enjoy Indian food, I recommend India Gate.

Nandkishore Prakash: Vegetable Biriyani was colorless, odorless, tasteless and useless. It is what nitrogen in the air is to your lungs. Hardly a hint of vegetable or spice or texture. Straw-colored, anemic, cooked and salted rice masquerading as a Vegetable Biriyani with a small piece of plain potato or nearly invisible cardamom presumably letting it keep its title of 'Biriyani'

Federico Benavides: Do yourself a favor and avoid this "restaurant". The worst service, bad food and no heating. It is even a bit expensive. Don't recommend it at all - terrible.

DCHockey80: I'm typically pretty forgiving and not one to leave a scathing review for a restaurant, but would agree with the person whose comment in the reviews below suggested it would be better to scavenge from a McDonald's dumpster. This was the worst, most overpriced Indian food I've ever experienced. My partner and I dropped at least $40 for tasteless, watery food that was nowhere near authentic Indian. We never waste food, but had to leave half of our food that evening. I have no clue how they've stayed in business. Disgraceful!

Shireen Brathwaite: Tastes like homemade Indian food. I love this place. Just read a bunch of the other reviews on here. A few additional comments: this food is not super rich, thick or buttery which, to be honest, I get annoyed by most Indian restaurants. That stuff feels so unhealthy whereas this food tastes light, delicious, and flavorful without all the extra unhealthy stuff. That's why it feels more like food you would eat in someone's home as opposed to a restaurant. It's nice.

Shawn Dietz: Food was cold , owner is a real piece of work , this is not a place where u get Indian food , disgusting!

Capitol Bistro: what do users think?


Denise Walker: Very disappointing. The service was good, however it was extremely expensive. For one slice of toast and half an avocado it was 15.00. I was outraged. It was 21.00 for a Caesar salad with one thin slice of grilled chicken. I don’t mind paying for good food, but I couldn’t get passed the 15 dollar avocado toast and the puny Caesar salad. If you are going to serve food, go all the way and do it right.

Kelly Behlen: The fancy placard out front says 10pm. "Are you closed?" "Yeah, we closed." "Your sign right here says you're open until 10, and it's 8pm." "Don't pay any attention to the times on there. Order online." "If I wanted to pay $10 more just for not having to literally take an elevator down from my room, sure." Their hours are a lie, so don't plan this unless you call.

Stergios Manakos: We waited at list 30min. for a table. We ordered 1 greek salad, 1 Caesar salad and 1 salmon dinner. . Greek salad was the worst ever. Cucumber cut into small cubes they include 1 grape tomato cut into four pieces and few crumbs of feta cheese (mostly was Cucumber salad). I didn't enjoyed at all. I only took one bite that's all. We asked for another Caesar salad instead but they refused us. Salmon dinner was thin slice of salmon with maybe two tablespoon of corn. Bill came to $85 They just didn't care. You be the judge

Paul Zhang: I have breakfast over here. It was very nice. I choice breakfast buffet. Breakfast buffet time 06:30-10:30. The food was delicious 😋! It’s very nice convenient restaurant! A lot of people come here ate breakfast!!! Good service!!! Flavorful salads. Home - made soups. Traditional bistro entree’s with imaginative twists. Desserts 🍨 and wines to savor.👍👍👍👍👍

Bob B: I repeated a meal I had a couple years back. French Onion soup and Crab Cakes. Good but not as good as last time. Broth was beefy but salty. Crab Cakes were a bit mealy with filler. I asked for extra Old Bay on the side to account for the lack of it in the cakes. That helped as I like my Old Bay after 30 years in Baltimore. Service was upscale and so was the price. I'll try it again next time perhaps.

Milana K: Good breakfast! Sweet employeesFood was fresh and was a good variety

P C: Good restuarant in the Holiday Inn - Capitol. Food is good. Try the salmon. There is also a bar area. Good prices and large menu

Dustan D: Breakfast Buffet was excellent, service was amazing, made to order omelets and otherwise great selection. Was a bit pricey at $17 per person

Vickie Credeur: Breakfast was extremely overpriced, we had pancakes and juice/coffee for 3 and was over $70

Clydine Stanley: This place is so disorganized. 😡😡😡😡 All we got sorry this sorry that. Not enough workers or we were just plain being ignored.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SUCCOTASH: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Magic Gourd Restaurant: what do users think?


Carson Robb: I got egg drop soup, steamed pork dumplings, and the orange chicken. The soup and the chicken were great (know that you have to pay $2 extra for white meat). The dumplings did not fit my fancy. The breading almost tasted raw. For reference, my total was $33.48. Not unfairly priced 👍

Rachel Huynh: Good food. On the day we came, somehow the whole restaurant only had 1 waitress and 2 runners. Poor the waitress she gotta do everything from serving food, taking order, bringing beverages, making table etc... We were on the rush so we almost canceled our order. The waitress immediately took actions: with lightning speed food was served and surprisingly, with very good quality. My parents kept asking to come back.

Don Hardy: Very friendly staff! Food was not amazing, but was good, and cheap comparatively to the surrounding area. They also have a nice lunch special that they have just started. I suggest asking them about it if you're around and want a quick, cheap, and satisfying lunch.

Marissa Bacino: Came here before a show at the Kennedy Center. Dated interior, but the food is great. Fairly quick, lots to chose from. We ordered: pork dumplings, crab Rangoon. Mongolian beef, triple delight, Thai basil chicken and the boiled fish. All was really good, I wish I lived closer to DC, this would be a regular spot.

Anna Tarnavchyk: Not bad food. Old school style interior.The reason of 3 ⭐ because the check that we received was not very clear. Just hand writing one and I feel like 18% service fee was already added, but all manually.

George Haws: Mapo Tofu is authentic. Ginger, garlic, scallions and doubanjiang. Angry red chillies swimming in red broth. Delicious.

Kamal S Ravi: Friendly staff and very good food. My default option for chinese food in DC now.

Emil Potersnak: Service was excellent, staff very friendly. Food was fantastic. I highly recommend this spot.

Lisa Heilbronn: DanDan noodles delicious as always, spicier than I remember. Good service.

hao zhang: The best Chinese food near school, staff are super friendly and food was good.

Chick-fil-A: what do users think?


Munera A: First time trying the famous chick-fill-A! , it was good not my type of food though

Kiara Jackson: This food is absolutely delicious. The customer service is always inviting and the drive through line goes very fast. The breakfast is one of my favorites. I like to eat here at least once every two weeks.

christopher Pintado: Was relatively hard to find at first. Even more difficult to find parking. End up finding it in what seems to be the basement college cafeteria. The food was good and had other restaurants like sushi and Mexican food. Having multiple options at the same spot made it worthwhile for a quick bite to eat

Daniel VanDeKerkhove: Most authentic, genuine, delicious, and real-tasting (because it clearly Is) chicken I've had from a fast food restaurant. Chicken nuggets already to be genuine hunks of chicken meat - tender, juicy, hand battered and deep fried to crispy golden perfection. Soft and moist. Delicious. The spicy chicken sandwich was ungawwwdly soft and moist - my teeth literally cut through it like Butter (no exaggeration). Nice kick - a bit above average heat compared to most other fast food chains (a Good thing; most place's "spicy" chicken sandwiches totally aren't at all spicy). Amazing taste and texture. Awesome. Fries were average or perhaps slightly below average; unique cut, average texture, warm but not nice and hot, sorta bland taste - needs some sort of special seasoning. BUT... The food was overpriced. And the portion size of the chicken nuggets was small - definitely smaller than competitors; was Definitely disappointed by that. Not sure if the high prices were due to them being on a college campus, or just in general. But $27 for one sandwich, one medium fry, a drink (whatever), and one mediumish-sizedish box of nuggets (30... Lol. Would be 20 anywhere else)... I'm sorry, I can't give 5 stars. Not even 4. Too expensive. Though YES, YES, Absolutely Delicious!!

SGP Versluis: Awesome chicken place with loads of choices. Nothing to fancy, it's still a fast food place, but a good one.

Sam Odle: It’s an express location so it’s a Chick-Fil-A that’s been shrunk down to fit in a food court. Long lines at peak hours is the only negative and you’ll quickly see why - fast and friendly service and delicious chicken sandwiches and nuggets!

Paxton Patey: Poor customer service. Dirty tables. Charged me 50 cents for each chick fila sauce. And didn’t get us forks for our grilled chicken, which was actually more like shredded chicken. The 12 piece and 8 piece we ordered had the same amount of chicken. And when we asked for forks the employee looked like we inconvenienced her. I love chick fila. But won’t come back here again.

BrANdIe LyNn: Love the comfy environment. Food tasted great and fresh. Staf was very nice and respectful.

Katie Johnson: Great CFA, open to the public. Check for hours though and avoid noon during the semester to avoid VERY long lines of students.

Matthew Ostin: Amazing food, always busy so that makes it a little tough to go here when in a rush. Employees are really kind and make quality food. Personally recommend the spicy checker sandwich. Also make sure to get sauce or you are missing out.

Whole Foods Market: what do users think?


Clark Higgs: far the dirtiest whole foods store that I've ever been in. Some of their staff seem to have an "I don't care" attitude. After shopping, I stood in the coffee line for 15 minutes before I was waiting on by the only attendant working who made the following comment to another customer "there needs to be three people working at the coffee stand at all times". A new management team is suggested for this place, I will not return.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed on your recent visit, Clark. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Hilda Kroll: I think it's great to have a supermarket across the street from the Foggy Bottom Metro. I usually get something in the bakery before heading for home when I'm in the area. Today I met a friend for coffee before going to the nearby Textile Museum. I got there first and didn't have a problem getting a cup of coffee. My friend came later, stood on line for fifteen minutes to get a cup of decaf, and refuses to go back. If you have the time, coffee and the choice of so many good pastries is a good deal. If you're in a rush, go somewhere else and pay twice as much.

Jeff: I'm stuned a whole food with a line wrapping around the store? Are you kidding me unreal. Never again to this very sad of an excuse to have this hanging. Can see the line on one side of the store and registers on the other. Freak show.

Win Anderson: This great review is solely because of the wonderful barista at the coffee shop. I was in town for a conference and went to whole foods three days in a row for coffee in the morning. Each day Tom provided wonderful coffee and friendly service. He is polite and personable and efficient. (This was in stark contrast to some of the register checkout clerks, who were downright rude.). The police officers were very friendly!

Cyndy Nguyen: I came here for the coffee bar and had a wonderful experience. The barista, Tom, was friendly and helpful. He gave me some information about the decaf coffee (doesn’t contain any chemicals). He gave me a sample of one of their green smoothies and made me a delicious brown butter cookie latte. I’ll come back for the great customer service.
Response: We truly appreciate you sharing your feedback with us, Cyndy. We are thrilled to hear of the amazing experience you received at the Foggy Bottom store, and will gladly share your feedback with the appropriate leadership so Tom can get the kudos they deserve!

Kevin Russell: Is a big store. I can buy my whole octopus here which makes me happy. Great seafood and meats department. Used to be really long check out lines but now the converted many to self check out and it seems much faster. I'm not the guy who loves Whole Foods but as for the stores I have been to, this one is a good one
Response: We appreciate your support, Kevin. We are delighted to hear how great your experience was and we hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Barry Bub: I am usually willing to pay more at a Whole Foods market because I generally enjoy the shopping experience there. This particular store not, for a number of reasons. Here’s one. When I asked the checkout person, politely, to tape the lid of the soup container to prevent it coming off - I had a long walk home - she yelled at me and stormed off. She was replaced by male who told me they no no longer tape or rubber band lids. I guess the few seconds it takes to do so eats into their profits. And what has happened to customer service? I agree with the previous reviewer, it’s a management or corporate problem.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed on your recent visit, Barry. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Melissa Colón: I love stopping by the coffee bar for my daily fix. My drink is always perfectly made and the conversation is great! I’m hoping that eventually the hot bar breakfast will work its way back up to how great it was pre-pandemic.
Response: We're pleased to hear you enjoy our coffee bar, Melissa. Thank you for shopping with us!

Natalia Delgado: Had a really had experience at this location. We were accused of stealing by the manager just because we had our own cart with groceries from trader joes. The grocery store is 15 minutes from where we live and we go walking so we have no other option than to go to both stores in one trip. He made us feel very uncomfortable the whole time and followed us throughout the store. Another person had their own cart and was putting groceries in there but it didn’t seem like he said anything to them while we had our whole foods items in a separate basket. He approached again at checkout (after making it very obvious that he was talking about us with another employee) and said we couldn’t bring our own cart because “it confuses the employees”. I explained that we had a receipt for the groceries we had in our cart but he didn’t seen to care. We don’t have the luxury of a car or leaving nearby the store and we had never had any problems with going to two stores in one trip with our cart.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed with your recent visit, Natalia. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Caroline McGuire: Tom makes the best smoothies at the coffee & smoothie bar! The whole staff is amazing and the store is always so well organized. Cannot recommend this spot enough!
Response: We appreciate your support, Caroline. We are delighted to hear how great your experience was and we hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Purple Patch: what do users think?


India Lindsay: We LOVE this restaurant. Recommend catching the happy hour that’s until 7 on weekdays Every dish and drink is so yummy. Waiters are friendly and offer great service. Atmosphere is nice but relaxed. You don’t need reservations and very affordable with big portions. My Filipino friend said it was some of the best spicy fried chicken he’s had Celebrated my birthday here and they gave us a delicious serving of ube bread pudding, best bread pudding I’ve had!

Cary Michael: Purple Patch DC was a delightful dining establishment that definitely lives up to its name: most of the menu items are adorned with a garnish of purple (Ube ice cream, orchid, etc.), and the restaurant is tucked into a "patch" down a small set of stairs. The menu consisted of hearty, American food with a fancy Filipino twist, and my party tried a variety of food options that we all found delicious (as presented in the photos of this review). Some of our favorite beverages were the Spicy Calamansi Margarita, made with their house-infused roasted jalapeno tequila, and the Purple Patch Hot Cider, which paired well with our meals on this cold, snowy winter afternoon. Some of our favorite food items were the Fried Calamansi Wings, Crispy Eggplant, Crab Fritters, Fried Red Snapper, and their signature Ube Waffle & Filipino Fried Chicken, in which the chicken was braised with soy and vinegar and the Ube Waffle was served with a scoop of Ube ice cream and a side of macapuno (coconut) syrup. Also, because it was my birthday, I was gifted with the most delicious thing to ever grace the surface of my taste buds - the Ube Bread Pudding was by far, one of the most heavenly things I've tasted, and was the absolute perfect way to top off this amazing brunch experience. The bread itself was warm and lightly sweetened with condensed milk, while served with a caramel drizzle, granola and a scoop of Ube ice cream. Overall, between the superior customer service, low-key, homey ambiance, delicious entrees and divine cocktails, the entire brunch experience was absolutely splendid! While they don't take reservations, I highly recommend Purple Patch and encourage you to call in advance the day of your planned visit. No matter what you order, be sure to try the Ube Bread Pudding and you won't be disappointed!

Pedrom Rejai: Incredible food!!!! Can't give it enough stars. Sizzling sisig is very meat heavy and very well done. Bread pudding was excellent and the other few things we tried were great. Service was excellent, good vegetarian options, and I like that they automatically add 20% gratuity to your bill. Will definitely come back!

Betsy W: First off the staff here is AMAZING...when dining in ask for: Jose, he will definitely take good care of you. Alex, their General Manager, is super knowledgeable especially with the history of the restaurant. I ordered the Pancit Mahal to go and me and my husband enjoyed it so much that for my birthday ( Dec 16) my husband surprised me with a delivery from Purple Patch. Plus, Jose made sure I enjoyed my birthday with a dessert and a personalized note to me with best wishes. I highly recommend Purple Patch if you want to try authentic traditional Filipino food. 👍👍👍

Jacqueline Telljohann: My husband and I love Filipino food, but there isn't much of it in Charlotte (where we're from). A Yelp friend recommended this spot to me and it was only a block from where we were staying, so coming was a no brainer. They do brunch every day, but the best part is, you can order from the dinner menu during brunch hours too! So if you want the most options, go for brunch. My husband and I shared: - Ube Waffle & Filipino Fried Chicken with Ube Ice Cream - Sizzling Sisig - Ube Bread Pudding - Ube Cheesecake Between the entrees, the Sizzling Sisig was my favorite. I love this dish and this is the best version of it that I've had. The Ube Waffle wasn't bad, but I couldn't taste any ube flavor. As for dessert, I LOVED the Ube Cheesecake. The Ube flavor was strong in this one. It wasn't a dense cheesecake either which I liked. I was disappointed about the Ube Bread Pudding. The menu said it was supposed to come with caramel sauce, but instead it came out covered in chocolate sauce. I don't like chocolate, so I didn't eat it. I wish the menu had been accurate because I easily could have ordered it without the chocolate sauce if I had known. I'd love to come back sometime because there were many other things I wanted to try.

Alexis Colon: Went to the Purple Patch after a day at the zoo! It was so great! We sat outside and the food was very flavorful with good portions. Our waitress was super nice and the service overall was great

James Wang: A quaint little restaurant that makes the most of its space in a small underground hallway. The staff are very attentive and caring and go above and beyond. They are known for their hot cocktails (their hot apple cider is incredible) and their brussel sprout starter that is superb. I quite enjoyed their pork belly adobo, however the portion size was smaller than I had expected and the sauce slightly saltier than I would have liked. However, the meat was very tender and the rice was well cooked. To end the meal, I would recommend their Halo Halo dessert (Filipino version of a shaved ice) or any dish served with Ube ice cream since it tastes delicious. Overall, great dining experience but the main entree left me wanting more.

Josh Axelrod: Purple Patch is a vibey outdoor spot in Mt. Pleasant, perfect for grabbing lunch or drinks with friends. Servers are beyond friendly here. The food itself is nothing to write home about, but there are several good options on the menu, and you'll have so much fun people-watching from the heated patio that you likely won't need to pay super close attention to your food.

Jonathan Ng: As a tourist to DC, I had heard of the famous Purple Patch restaurant from many of my fellow Filipinos (or kababayan), and I sought it out on my last night at DC. It took a moment to find the restaurant in the dimly lit streets of suburban DC, however I was pleasantly surprised to find Purple Patch well-staffed. As a Filipino food traditionalist, I decisively ordered Arroz Caldo (as an appetizer), Pork Belly Adobo & Garlic Rice (as a main), and Brazo De Mercedes (as dessert), paired alongside a Frozen Dalandan shake. Without a shadow of a doubt, I was thoroughly delighted by the wonderful tastes of home as I completed my meal. The Arroz Caldo was a perfectly calibrated recipe that accentuated the ginger and the meat stock. The Pork Adobo was a fantastic callback to my home with its generous serving of cubed pork and vegetables. And finally, the Brazo De Mercedes was a creative innovation of traditional Filipino dessert and a fruity presentation.

LJ Aranda: It's a popular Filipino restau in DC. We ordered bistek and bicol express. My husband really likes the bicol express. The bistek was just okay for me - it was too sour at least for me. My husband also enjoyed the brazo de mercedes with ube ice cream on top.
