Blues Alley Club: what do users think?


Laetitia Monnier: Awesome club ! We went there for a date night and it was a great experience. There is little table around the stage where you can get close and cozy. The atmosphere is dark and felted which is perfect for a romantic date. The music was awesome too. It was a mix of jazz, blues, hip-hop and it was definitely perfect. The food was good too with choice from southern cuisine which we love. I think it’s a must do in DC and we’ll definitely come back and recommend it to our friends and family !

Tom Williams: This spot is dope and laid back, I like the location also. The drinks and food were good, this is a must go I will return for sure. They do ask for your vaccination card so don’t be surprised about that. Give it shot and enjoy yourself.

Michael Goodman: Good little historic jazz club in DC. Good space, nice acts coming through. A bit stuffy for my taste, as I usually prefer walk-in casual spots, and this requires tickets in advance. But forcing ticket sales does at least encourage active listeners rather than a raucous, drunken bar crowd. Pretty good layout, good view of the band from most seats in the house. The food is something awful. Get dinner elsewhere.

Carol F: LOVE Blues Alley! Great venue and line ups always. The drinks and appetizers I've had were all very good. I just wish they had a membership. You know... Something like: pay x amount a year and get go to go x number of shows with a simple click. I'd probably go more often.

Adam Galazka: Decided to try this place out for our first jazz experience in DC. It was good. It does get very congested in there as the tables are very close to each other. There was a minimum of $15 order. You can QR code order everything and even check out online. I thought that process was very smooth. Music was good. You are close to the stage. It did take us asking 3 times for some water. It is also warm in there. Can't imagine how it would feel on a warmer day. They also require to see vaccination card. Photo of one is fine.

Anne Schumann: Blues Alley is open and putting on great shows. Vaccinations are required to enter but masks are optional (as of this review). Expect to pay a cover plus a food and beverage minimum. Tickets can be purchased online in advance and there are shows most nights of the week ranging from school bands, local up and commers and national talent. There is a parking garage right across the street or on weeknights you can usually find street parking.

Kelly Smith: The atmosphere was excellent the music had me on the edge of my seat. Paul Taylor and Michael Lington were awesome 👌. The only thing I didn't like was not getting my drink i ordered. They were slow if they have a drink price minimum we should be able to get what we want. Other than that a Great place to visit

Shantell Hartley: The music was great. However, the service was terrible!!! The show started a little after 10pm. I didn’t get my drink until 11:30pm. Right after I got my drink, the show ended!!! They continually got our drink orders wrong and didn’t have any of the mixers we ordered. They even sent a mixed drink to our table in two different glasses, unmixed. It was a MESS! I finally had to ask for my drink to be mixed with a coke since they didn’t have anything else. It was not delicious. I couldn’t even drink it. I had to ask for extra soda because it was so strong. I am really disappointed by this experience. I should have gotten a refund! The two stars are only because the music was good.

Terri Miller: Blues Alley never disappoints! The pefect venue for enjoying live music. The staff is friendly and professional. I saw one of my favorite artist Kim Waters. It was an amazing performance and outstanding band. I looking forward to going back soon.

J D: Wonderful jazz music in a historic carriage house. The quality of the music and musicians was equal to what we hear at our local concert venue. Owners are hospitable and service is quick and efficient. We enjoyed beverages but want to try the food on our next visit. Check this place out and do your part to support live jazz music and a lively venue.

Jojo Restaurant and Bar: what do users think?


Fernanda Lanzagorta: The live music is definitely the best asset of this restaurant. Its 10 dollars for the the music. We were expecting more on the food, the fries and apple tart were the best of all. The ambiance is so cozy and inviting. I’ll come back for the music and the desserts.
Response: Thank you!

Ev B: This place was PERFECTION! Shot out to our waiter we called him DK (I can't remember his real name sorry) who was GREAT‼️ Excellent Customer Service and the food was AMAZING! THE BAND WAS PHENOMENAL! The Lady at the front door who greets everyone was so sweet and nice. Oh I can't wait to go BACK❤️
Response: Thanks Ev, see you soon!

Victoria Little: 20% gratuity added to check, $2 fee to per person because we brought a cake in. Oh and $10 added to tab for the band, was removed since they weren't playing before we departed. It was a little disappointing since none of this was mentioned when I reserved a table for five. Food and drinks were average. Do yourself a favor and go to a better place for the price.
Response: Thank you, and please take a look at our reservation notes, it's mentioned so its clear to our guest.

mletts423: This is a great spot! The Jazz was incredible. It is a small bar with great sound. The bartenders work really hard and make great drinks! I highly recommend this place!
Response: Thamks, you are the best. Check out our happy hours daily from 5pm-7pm.

Vicki J (MylifeMystyle): Jojo’s a vibe ! If you like jazz / live music then check it out when in DC . There’s a $10 cover for the nights the band is playing live for downstairs seats. The food is tasty as well .
Response: Thank you Vicki, we hope to see you soon.

Anita Molina: What a little gem. We came to enjoy some late night jazz. Cozy inside, atmosphere was fantastic. Loved the ambiance. Excellent food, excellent drinks and most importantly excellent music. We will be back.
Response: Thank you

Emerson P. Daniel: interesting. food is great! the bartender pictured here touched my limes with his bare hands… and he kept going to the side to eat like taking chomps,,, i guess he was really hungry 😂😂😂overall— unsanitary and friendly in a fake way. oh and he didn’t know what the menu pictures were.. like what🤣🤣🤣 do you want me to get something?? and i kid you not my friend was asking about the picture and i literally figured out myself so you would THINK the bartender could do the same let alone know off bat—
Response: Thank you.

Tiffany Frazier: Loved this intimate spot on our weekend visit to DC. We didn't eat but everyone around us was and it looked yummy. We enjoyed the generous drinks and the Sol Roots Trio band. Will visit again on my next visit. Don't find many spots like this anymore.
Response: Thank you, see you soon!

Alex Moore: Came for the jazz and will probably only come back for the live jazz. The drinks were pretty standard, maybe a little too sweet on their fruit based cocktails. We had a reservation but had to wait ~20-30minutes for the table, despite arriving on time, since the party before us took their time to gather up and leave. The food was ok, and took a very long time to come out. Ordered the lamb chops rare, but only one of the 3 were rare. The chops varied in thickness too, which added to the uneven doneness. The dish was supposed to come with garlic mashed potatoes but came out with a few potato wedges instead, the spinach side was good. They add 20% gratuity to your bill and $10/head for live music.
Response: Thank you.

Charlene Bermudez: Bar seating, unless reservation for a table has been made. Food was probably exactly one notch higher than bar food, which is not bad at all. As for drinks, I ordered the ellington, which is worth trying out for it's originality and bold taste. The live music was great. The Keith Butler Trio was playing on the night I stopped by. Definitely recommend stopping by when they're scheduled to play.
Response: Thank you!

Takoma Station Tavern: what do users think?


Selinda Boyd-Graham: Had A Blast!! Great Vibes,Great Band and Great Food and Drinks. Deja Vu was experienced since I hadn't been here since College 😍

Janice Temple: So happy to hear 🎵🎶🎼that Jazz Music is back at Takoma Station Tavern on Saturday Nights. I saw the amazing Antonio Parker 🎷🎷😍 Jazz Quartet. Incredible raw emotions! Jazz that moves your soul. The drinks are 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾 good and so are the Mombo Sauce Wings 🐔🐔🐔

Antoinette Nue: Not at all happy overall with my experience. My rating is 1-1/2 stars, not 2... and that's for the fries 😐 1. I just wanted Wings, shrimp and fries - - wanted to place an order by phone and pick it up around 5:30 before it got busy. There was no way to reach someone directly by phone - no 'press zero' option. I had to go in. 2. Even though they have 'Add shrimp' as a menu option for Caesar salad, I could not add shrimp to my Charlie Parker basket. The manager tried to mansplain why that was the case, but as with all mansplanations, it made no sense at all. He did agree to discuss it with the owners. 🤨 3. Lastly, the old menu is on the website with the price of $12 for what I wanted, and I had to twist the manager's arm to get him to honor that price. In the end, he gave me the $3 difference between what the register rang and what the online menu showed as the price, but having to twist his arm to honor the price dampened the experience. 4. What ruined the experience completely was that the wings were burnt. That's my fault though; I saw that before I left, but I didn't have any fight left in me. I had just finished an acupuncture treatment and was floating and didn't want to ruin my acupuncture high. I reasoned that maybe it was time to change the oil, but the wings would probably taste good. Once I got home, I found the wings to be tolerable - - with hot sauce on them - - and the fries were as good as they've been on past visits. Will I travel the distance for more of their wings? Nope, probably not. My acupuncturist gave me the name of two places that serve soul food. I think I'll try those instead.

Donald “Bulldog Forever” Sullivan: Been going here for years. Went recently on a Friday night and it was great. Nice crowd, great music and a mature setting. Would recommend to anyone. Be advised parking will be a challenge.

Marketta Hoskins: Went here for a bday sip and paint really nice establishment. Food was good they have a $5 happy hour until 8 p.m. only thing is that the chicken wings weren't done after sending them back twice. Other than that I would definitely recommend for a cute night out. Deserve area 420 friendly overall DOPE spot

Sincere Smith: Really enjoyed my visit! Although I'm vaccinated, I remain cautious; I must say that i was able to enjoy my food and beverages feeling comfortable and covid safe. The manager and bar tender were extremely nice gentlemen. The wings and shrimp were scrumptious!

Dresia Vaughn: Don't care 4 one particularly Ethiopian woman with short blonde hair that works at the bar, definitely not a people person. Personality and self attitude is all about self not the customer. Now overall Club 10 Stars

James Greene: Great place to relax after a long day at work at go chill.

W.Y B: Nice spot. People were kind. Drinks ok. It would be great if the food menu was better. I wish them well. Because that place could really really be a cool hang out.

Duncan Bishop: Great atmosphere to watch games and place bets. Wings were fantastic and service was friendly and quick. No complaints.

Alice's Jazz & Cultural Society: what do users think?


V Webster: Walking into Alice's Jazz and Cultural Society, is like walking into a jazz hall of fame. This place is a must see...and don't forget to enjoy the music! I will return!

Lasana Akachi: I checked out the place on one of the off days for performance. I was impressed with the mural and easy access of entry. The mural greatly encompassed the history and feeling of jazz from it's people oriented organic feel. The folksy vibe was definitely authentic. During it's hey-day, I was largely out of the DC area, so I didn't get to catch the performances as I would have liked, but I knew the manager DeAndrey Howard who is a consumate musician who has a love and appreciation for the music that I have witnessed first-hand over many years and countless venues. If anyone could insure the viability of the music and the place, I knew it would be him. The closing of Alice's place is a lost for us all.

Jadon Marianetti: What a lovely homie place to enjoy local jazz and culture. Every Wed and Sunday night from 6-9p. It's a 501(c)3... Alcohol free, $10 cover. Great artists. Great mission. What else is there to say... This is a low-key gem of Brookland and 5 minutes from the metro, right next to a delicious pizza place (menomale) and a great neighborhood gastropub (Brookland's finest) :)

Ashantie L. Taylor: I love this place. Particularly because it’s alcohol-free, but especially because my son, who is a toddler, is welcomed. Very warm and inviting establishment to enjoy some good music.

Patrice Douglas: My guy friend and I adore this place! We don't drink so it was awesome to find a jazz spot that doesn't serve alcohol! The food (fried fish & salad) is delicious! and the music is a feast for our ears. It's $10 to get in and another $10 for a plate. $40 date night in DC is great for the budget :) The staff there treat you like family. I miss it and can't wait for them to open back up after COVID. I can't say enough good things about this place!

Cynde Thomas: Personable staff, gracious host (DeAndre), excellent fish dinner, and great jazz, jazz, jazz in a livingroom set.

Jerry Lowell: Warm, intimate nin-alcohol club to see good local jazz. Diverse audience with love if music in comm.

Dennis Meizys: I am looking forward to the re-opening once it's safe again.

Laurie MJ: The place was like stepping back in time. Where people came to play because they enjoyed it. This night Pepe and Imani Gonzales was the entertainers

Angie Whitehurst: Great music. An old fashioned "hole in the wall" small cozy ," jazz club. A real treat and they only serve sodas, juice and snacks. There are performances scheduled throughout the week. You have to go on line to see who's performing. On Sundays around six the music is on. Go early to get a parking place, seat and or a table.

Columbia Station Club: what do users think?


Ayaz Khan: A fantastic jazz venue. Had a great experience. The owner, Mahari, personally checks on all the guests. The bartender Lena is lovely.Great service, relaxed atmosphere. Real Jazz start kicking off around 9pm. Great performers. Will certainly be frequenting this place regularly.

cristalebella B: The owner welcomed us in immediately andmade us feel at home. The Jazz was what dragged us in, and it progressively got better and better. I sipped on my dirty martini and enjoyed all the ambiance this place had to offer. Meoowwww all that was missing was Eartha Kitt 😉 😘

Allison Lau: Reliable establishment for good live jazz & blues. Columbia Station is iconic on 18th street - their unadulterated presence breathes life into the streets. Warm atmosphere with a welcoming hostess, and no cover. We usually just order drinks here because food service can be slow. Stay however long you want - you won't be disappointed with the show!

U.B. Abalu: Ha! I should have read the reviews before coming back here :p The jazz music is great. This has always been a favorite spot of mine, until recently. Had the worst dining and service experience. First of all, when you show up you seat yourself, which is fine. The waitress/bartender brought me a menu and didn't even come check on me again after I placed the menu down and was making eye contact, obviously ready to ask for something, while she was chit-chatting with the other waitress in the corner. I was waiting for my partner to arrive, and when he did, they came to take our orders. He ordered wine, and I wanted to start with water with a lemon. They brought his wine but not my water. Took them 10 minutes to get me a simple glass of water (and the lemon was missing by the way) and I had to ask them for it a second time. Then we ordered the seafood pizza, but they brought out the seafood platter (50 minutes later). We said seafood "pizza" very clearly, but the waitress was not listening. We didn't want to be late for a comedy show next door, so we told them to cancel the order and we'd eat somewhere else, yet they insisted that they would bring our order to us next door and even had the audacity to ask us to pay in advance. Pay for what?? We didn't receive any food yet and service was terrible. We ended up receiving the seafood pizza (a full 1 hour and 10 minutes later by the way) which was delicious. It took additional time for them to bring us small plates. The wait staff don't seem to care that much. The place had been picking up and they seemed oblivious to their bad service, and they seemed slow, under-trained, and overwhelmed. My partner usually always, always leaves a generous tip, but this is the first time I've ever witnessed him leaving ZERO tip. The service was that bad. It was such a terrible service experience. And you know what? There are plenty of jazz/dining options in DC, and we simply won't be coming back to this place.

YT White: This place has great music and very cool vibes. The menu is limited but it's not about the food.

Ellie Twigg: Ugh. Great potential in this AdMo spot but unfortunately, the service from bar staff and ownership is so bad. Horrendously overpriced drinks and rude bartenders in a place that hosts amazing live Jazz music and the occasional comedy night. Diverse crowd and a packed house with little to no service to the seated tables or those sat at the bar. Didn’t keep proper tabs on our bill so we were charged a seemingly random amount. We might be back but only for the jazz and comedy.

Genny Henry: Hello. I have been to this establishment three times and all three times the server has been incredibly rude. Once she charged us for a drink that she tossed when I had simply went to the bathroom. This time was the last straw. We came in and sat down, she greeted us by flopping the menus on the table without a word. Then she comes back three minutes later to ask if we're ready, without recommending anything on the menu, in which we replied, telling her that we were waiting for some friends to park before ordering. Five minutes later, she comes back, and places the promotion card on the table, pointing out the fact that it's a $10 minimum to stay, without saying a word, she just pointed and stared at us. Our friends weren't even here yet and 8 minutes into this place, we already feel unwelcomed. At that point, we called our friends back and told them to not even bother. We asked her to speak to a manager, in which she replied with a face of discuss and anger, and said "What?! Why?" We told her that she was simply being rude. Then she replied, "So! I'm busy!" and snatched the menus off if the table. It was a Sunday night, there were maybe five tables and one person at the bar, she was obviously not busy. When she refused to even retrieve a manager, we walked out. We're never coming back. I just want to let someone know so that others won't have to go through what we went through. The Jazz is amazing, and I don't think it's fair to the talented musicians to see someone drive business away.

Keith Lopes: After we sat down, it took some time for the server to get to us. She was the only waitress on a very busy Adams Morgan Festival day. Also we had to wait for quite some time to actually get our food. The food was okay at best. Please don't get the chicken wings they were bready as hell, not crispy. We spent $50 on not so good food. Besides that, there was some pretty great live music, however it was too loud for the tiny space. If only we had walked two or three restaurants further we would have enjoyed our lunch.

Dwayne Evans: Laid back comfortable atmosphere with no pretense. Good service and music

Elizabeth Goodrich: Sat outside while the jazz band played. Highly recommend. Had the calamari for an app. It was SO good, lightly fried. Then we had a chicken pasta, delicious. Lots of vegetables and seasoned amazingly. Then my partner in crime had a steak that was Pittsburgh style. Sooo good. Came on a Sunday night! Jazz until 1am.

Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club: what do users think?


Cory Laws: Four stars for a nice venue and a good variety of performers. Good acoustics. Food is ok. Not great, not horrible. Acceptably decent. Drinks are expensive, but I guess that goes with the situation. Staff was nice, friendly and attentive, especially considering the crowd. I was a bit turned off with the bill. A 20% gratuity was added, with a supposedly "custom" tip. The custom part was on top if the already claimed 20%. Regardless, the music was good, and we had fun. Will be back.

Sassy Sauce: This is a nice club to see performers and enjoy an evening out with friends and family. The tables on the main floor are close together so get there early so you don’t have to navigate through so many people. The food and drinks are pretty good and the prices are reasonable. There is stadium styled seating in the back with approximately 8 rows of chairs. You can order drinks and food from the bar area and bring it back to your seat if you sit in the back stadium seats. The sound quality and acoustics of the musical performances is good as well.

S B: Nice venue and show - we went to a Sunday evening Stokely show and sat in the non-main area and was satisfied. Next time we'll try the table top area. The food was delivered in plastic take-out containers, so it isn't the usual dining experience, perhaps because of the pandemic. Highly recommend.

Dr. DeBo'rah Williams: The venue was nice, however sitting in seats off the floor, at a cost of $75.00; I thought it was inappropriate that we couldn't be served. In order for us mature adults to have to climb stairs and then desend from the Gallery to purchase food and drinks, I was astounded. I drove from Delaware to DC in order to observe the show, I will reconsider in the future.

Charita Mayo: I have been to Bethesda Blues many many times for so many events : live concerts, comedy shows and more. I enjoy myself every time. I love the options of artists they showcase. The tickets are reasonably priced. Now post Covid they changed management or food vendor & their food prices has increased ALOT! I do think that is ridiculous. You could eat before you arrive, but you still have to purchase something like drinks or dessert. Overall I always have a great time and enjoy the performance.

ange nance: I thoroughly enjoyed the show. This is a nice small venue. You get an excellent view of the stage whether you get a table or sit upstairs. The food and drinks are overpriced for the quality and quantity. I suggest eating before you go. But the entertainment was awesome. I will definitely go back again.

T O: We decided to go to a concert here and made a weekend getaway out of it. We drove 4 hours to get here so maybe my expectations were too high but I don’t think so. To start, the venue is ok but old and needs updating. We had two less than great mixed drinks that came in small plastic cups. With tax and gratuity, the total was $45. We ate before we arrived so didn’t order the food. Thank God we didn’t because a lady next to us ordered a $25 salad that came in a plastic container with a lid on it. All food came in a plastic container with a lid on it. If I’m paying this kind of money, there are expectations like a certain quality, glasses to drink from, dinnerware, and silverware. I previously bought tickets to another show here later this summer but am going to think hard about whether I’m coming back. The vibe was completely off and the cost of the tickets may be sacrificed. If you’re going to call yourself a “supper club”, you need to up your game cause this ain’t it.

Stephanie Bullock: Only giving a 1 star because of the Performer . I am in healthcare, and they DO NOT ask to see proof of covid- vaccine as the website stated. We went to see Stockley last Friday evening . The website stated that the doors open at 5pm but the rude security guard peeked his head out the door and said “Well the website is wrong, doors open at 5:30pm” Seeing that it was raining outside , I asked the security guard if I come inside just to use their ladies room, and he stated “ There is a bar across the street that may have a restroom”. My friends and I walked across the street to a beautiful bar owned by the Marriott , where we had the best bartender and the best drinks . We walked back over to the Bethesda Jazz club just in time for the show . Stockley put on a great great performance, but the staff was extremely rude, and I will say eat before you arrive because the food and service was not worth the cost . I will definitely revisit the bar across the street located at the Marriott for happy hour , but will never return to the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Club.

Theressa “T” C: This was my first time here and I had an awesome experience. Bel'a Donna performed and they did an AMAZING job!! I ordered the southern fried wings and it was yummy.

Krista: There's a public parking garage behind the venue with 3 floor so keep driving down if it's full, you'll find something. $20 minimum at the table, which is fine because you'll only have to order one item to achieve. I came to see a comedy show. The tables were reasonably spaced. We sat in front on the lefthand side. Very vintage inside, which I love. The food was a little pricey for what you get. I didn't mind the plastic ware but it was $17 for 6 wings and the same for a small salad. The crew seemed to be organized and attentive to the best of their abilities. I will return... maybe after eating a filling meal 😁

Madam's Organ: what do users think?


Brad Badger: My girlfriend and I made sure to stop here after she had been here years ago and loved it. Our bartender Deborah was 10/10. She made some amazing drinks and was incredibly great to us. We got an appetizer sampler and the fried fish bites were absolutely killer. Live music was great as well. Cool vibes and great service. I will definitely stop by Madams Organ again the next time I am in DC!

Eve Breier: Lovely atmosphere! The music is good, bartenders are friendly, nice mix of club-like dance floor upstairs, seated area on the middle floor, and a bar/performance area downstairs. It has it all. Also pretty funky decor all over.

James Bladen: I really wanted to try this place and menu sounded good, but waited over 15 minutes or more for someone to take my order and never did! I asked the bartender if someone was going to wait on my table and I could not hear what his response was, he just mumbled something. I was being as patient as possible and understand places are short staffed. There was a big table of around 10 people upstairs and I was by myself downstairs, I guess that explains it. The bartender was more interested staring at his phone than making sure his customers were taken care of. I was going to order a large order and I do tip good, but sorry, you just lost a customer and me recommending a place if you ignore solo diners like that.
Response: Sorry it didn’t work out for you. We are having labor issues but that is no excuse

Stacy Walker: Awesome spot, easy bar, and amazing entertainment! Check them out on Tuesday nights for great live music

Marieke Kooymans: Worst service we've ever had.. We were a group of 4 and came for dinner and to perform at the open mic. We were completely ignored when we came into the bar, even though it was quiet. At some point we just sat down and when the waitress finally came we asked for cocktails.She threw (literally) a crumpled stained cocktail menu on the table that looked as if it was taken out of the trash. She later explained they don't serve cocktails anymore which maybe explains..? We felt pretty invisible during dinner, it took a long time to order food/drinks and our plates weren't cleared away. We made a pile ourselves of the dishes and napkins ,and when dessert came the pile was cleared away, but the waitress took off the used napkins and put them back on the table for us to reuse. We ordered 2 desserts and got 1, but decided to let it go and just ask for the bill. We tried to get the attention of the waitress but failed. After 20 minutes we walked around to find her and asked her to pay. She looked at us and then ignored us and walked away. it felt very disrespectful. We considered leaving cash on the table and just leaving (risking the cash to be taken by someone else in a now crowded bar). The kitchen porter then came by to clear the rest of our table and we asked him for the bill as a final attempt. He was very friendly and helped us. The waitress then told us the price to pay but we asked for a receipt. She seemed very annoyed and finally arranged a receipt. It took us in total at least one hour and a lot of effort to pay! At this point we did not feel welcome and just went home without playing at the open mic.

Ieshia E. Butler: Food was just ok. Nothing to write home about. I am from the Caribbean and was expecting the soul food to be a bit more flavorful. The waitress was really nice and the menu was affordable.
Response: Maybe you wanted Caribbean food and not Soul food

Amanda: Great dark chilled atmosphere. Multiple floors with a partially covered roof top bar. Live bands. Friendly speedy service. Reasonable food and drink prices. Pool table available.

SHIKATSE KPANYAA: Great Place to have fun in DC. Live bands, hip-hop and country. Three different dance floor at the same place. Judy go to where you wanna have fun. They don't have meals so get something to eat around

DiiJay Victorious: Great place. Bouncer is cool and ppl are sociable. Bands are cool. Beware atmospheres change momentarily and without notice (not for badly, just different crowds)

Alison Scott: Loved the live music, bartender was so friendly! Amazing vibes - so glad we stopped in here. One of my favorite stops while visiting DC

Mr. Henry's Restaurant: what do users think?


Giovana Cianciarulo: My boyfriend and I came to visit the DC area and were recommended to visit Mr. Henry’s. As music lovers, we absolutely LOVED the musicians and Dominique Bianco‘s performance! Our server, Pat, was incredibly sweet and offered a dessert at the end when the food took some time to make (which we didn’t even notice because the jazz show was that good!) I recommend the steak, it was delicious! Mr. Henry’s, we will definitely be back!

Kristen Mehr, Truly Fine Homes: Went back for old times sake after 15 years...used to live around-the-corner from it on Capital Hill. Still same atmosphere but the nachos were not as I remember... too many beans...but their other food was good. Great neighborhood joint!

Nik Kei: Got the seafood platter which sounded good on paper but when it was brought out….. It was underwhelming to say the least. It was missing the fried oysters. It’s old dark and dingy to me and was just not impressed. Waiter was great though. I honestly don’t know why this place gets great reviews. Felt it was misleading.

Arash E: We went here for the jazz night on Wednesday and immediately fell in love with it, most of all for the staff's hospitality and the lively vibe. The food was great and the drinks were formidable. We asked them to pack the rest of the food and they gave us a fresh portion to go! Amazing! Just try to arrive early for the jazz night, otherwise it gets really busy.

Bhavik Sharma: Visited this place for the first time in 2018. Visiting again today. Love this place. The food is awesome and the people are so courteous

t mac: The food was great for my first time. But the waitress we had was not attentive and did not check to make sure we good or offer specials or what try out being though it was our first time.

Karen Abdulrasheed: Crab cake sandwich and spicy crab dip was delicious and was capped off with brownie sundae Service was excellent and food served hot. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Will definitely come back to dine again next trip to DC

Emily Lumley: My husband and I live nearby and this has become our go to spot. We come here every few weeks for Rita Tuesdays, amazing old bay wings, great service and HH deals you can’t beat in this area. Favorite Dish - Old Bay Wings and The Reuben 😅 Atmosphere - chill and family friendly, highly recommend!

Caleb Tacuri: Music was great. I was able to find a parking spot in front even though we got there a bit late, which was convenient. Waiters were polite and helpful. Only problem was our food was given to us with a dead fly on it which was a turn off and we ended up leaving. You might have a better experience if you don’t eat here.

Faith Mitchell: Was disappointed with my visit here as I always hear good things. Drinks were good, but the food was not. One item was clearly not made correctly as the taste was so off i couldn’t eat it. Fries undercooked, The burger and the fish sandwich I had tasted like they had no seasoning at all and the wings were fried way too hard. I couldn’t recommend.

Vegas Lounge: what do users think?


Hezekiahsmom: They charged $15 dollars to get in. The band was ok but the singer was awful. He couldn't carry a tune at all. There were white people everywhere and I prefer more diversity. The only people of color was the band, the people that worked there and myself and friends. The bartender poured me a drink and it was literally half a shot. I switched bartenders and went with the black chick with locs and she made my drink much stronger. I hope they change bands and it's not always the same because i could have forgiven everything but the guy singing was just awful although he wouldn't know because there were drunk people dancing all over the place smh

Morgan Pearman: This place is absolutely disgusting. We paid the $10 each cover as a bachelorette party, had fun talking to the bartender then went to a bar next door after staff told us we should come back later when it was more lively. When we attempted to reenter the bar as we had been told, the bouncer was rude and called us expletives when we questioned why we weren’t allowed in. The bouncer then threw my friend’s phone into the street as we attempted to escape into an Uber. I am from NYC and have literally NEVER seen behavior like this.

Brian Washington: Had a great time....great atmosphere. Everyone was in a great mood and the band gave it all they had and then some. Played some BB KING, FRANKIE BEVERLY, JOHNNY GILL, to SWEET HOME ALABAMA and took requests!

BOOM BLACKA: Great place for the blues.The outside facet is red hot and so is the music.The blues has been apart of of Americana since before it's founding.Many of our fore father's where either slaves or slave owner's. Out of this history of oppression came what we know as the blues.@ it's heart the blues is a historic narrative of the African American's struggle to survive in a inhuman excistence not of their own choosing.Any one can feel the blues but only those who's historical narrative founded and grounded in slavery can clame it as their own.That trial by fire is the badge that can never be appropreated.That being said:"What happen's in the New Las Vegas Lounge stay's in the Lounge. Thank you very much.Viva Las Vegas.BoomBlack has just left the building.

Maria Vargas: I regret not having a minus rate, so my one is way over rated. The doorman didn`t even allowed my wife and I to get in arguing that my wife had too many drinks!!! I guess the guy was drunk, I am glad we did not go !!!

Brent Bjorkman: $10 cover to hear Loverboy covers and $9 drinks with zero booze. These kids are too stupid to know any better. At least on this night, this was NOT a blues bar.

Phil T.: Good for one night.... bathroom smelt like vomit veryyyyy bad. Seemed to be an accepted aspect of the bar.

Jerome Jackson: Cover was well worth it. Play the old school jams with the live music. Can't beat it!

Michele Raglin: Harrassed by members in bar and management did nothing to accept accountability- would not recommend

Nick Depaolo: What a blast. Awesome live music!

Black Cat: what do users think?


Nick Pascale: performed there with my band, The Missing Peace (check us out) and the staff was extremely nice to us and treated us with utmost respect despite opening for a huge artist. Also music venues normally carry a stigma of being stingy with their alcohol in their drinks but Black Cat served great tasting, well mixed drinks - best venue i’ve experienced in the DMV area!

Tom Burke: I've been to this club a few times over the past 15 or so years. Always liked it. It's a long haul for me (~1.5 hr drive), so I don't go often.

Tom Mole: Covid testing requirements were listed clearly and visibly written on the venue's website. The venue was pretty clean and the restrooms were surprisingly kept up which is rare.. The front desk/counter lady was extremely polite and nice. I will definitely return for another awesome musical performance! DC music shows! :)

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Saw Boy Harsher here on April 10th (2022) and it was the first time seeing this duo. Dark, early new wave-inspired songs, very synth-heavy with pounding minimal beats made for a great show at this raw venue. It was my first time back here in about 20 years, still has a great vibe if not the best acoustics. If they had better sound here and some better vantage points for the folks that aren't 6 feet tall, I'd definitely give it 5 stars.

Ramiro Pena: My past two experiences have been dreadful. They pack the place so full of people it is really concerning. I straight up got panic attacks from just how many people are packed in post pandemic. God bless them but I guess it’s just not for me anymore. It’s so hard to ascertain when the events held here arent packed with a huge huge group of people because besides that I’m sure there are worthwhile acts to watch. I remember one group that did a really cool interpretive dance I’m sorry for the low score but thats me and I think I’m going to add some keywords so that a certain audience can understand. If you have autism or anxiety this might not be the most accesible place for you. The last two times I have been here getting a drink or even approaching the bar has been impossible. The place was so packed inevitability people were rubbing up against me CONSTANTLY. Personally I can’t stand that. This place has pinball which is nice but last time the one machine had a flipper broken. I wish I could enjoy being inside this place but theres no where to sit most of the time I feel awkward walking in and just standing around, I can’t feel comfortable dancing because theres no room to move without brushing up against someone. I just can’t stand that. This is a personal problem but if you have sensory issues like that consider this an advisement

kevin jenkins: Had a great time seeing Flobots. Bartenders are great. Tip them. Well.

JW Francis: I played here on 4/19 and had a wonderful experience! Very cool room with checkered floor. Very kind people behind the bar and working production. Two thumbs wayyyy up!

Jeffrey Hearn (he / him): Limited but welcome seating for a big guy who can't stand for 3 hours at a stretch

Robert Cardoni: Mid size music venue hosting indie and punk acts. Space is long and narrow - so sight lines and sound can be off near the back but it’s still a great space. They recently downsized from 2 levels to one. Kind of sad but at least they weren’t forced out of the neighborhood due to gentrification. Bring cash. No credit cards accepted They no longer have food :(

Marissa Frank: Love going to shows at the black cat. The bar upstairs is no longer cash only, but they will not keep tabs. Drink prices are fine. The bathrooms need some help but it's a small fun venue, it's fine.

The Crown & Crow: what do users think?


M planetmike: Decorated a bit like a bar from Harry Potter's world, this bar is both cozy and spacious. Hook and the rest of the staff were awesome. Even for a Tuesday night, it was surprisingly busy. This is a bar. Food can be brought in. There is a small stage with a large screen where events are televised or can be used for karaoke nights. Thankfully, this bar minimizes the use of televisions, which are unneeded distractions. This is conveniently located near Thomas Circle and at the Southern end of the 14th Street scene.
Response: You can always count on us for a good time. Hope to have you back for another round sometime soon! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Christopher Yuen: I was in town for a business meeting and I took a few friends out to this bar on a whim and we had a blast! The bartenders were friendly and the drinks were unique and delicious! I had so much fun I ended up leaving my blazer at the bar. I called the manager Graham a few days later and he mailed it back to me all the way to Connecticut. He’s awesome and this place is too!!!!!
Response: Thanks Christopher, it's our pleasure to host you and your friends!

Melissa Hough: This might be my perfect bar. So warm and cozy, the staff is incredible, the drinks are good. It's never been packed (at least on a weekday night) which makes me feel better about the VID. I'd been here a few times before but last night went for the first time on my Dry January stint and they were awesome. Bartender made a tasty mocktail AND they have non-alcoholic beer! So glad I found this gem.
Response: We're thrilled to be your perfect bar, Melissa. You can always count on us for tasty drinks, even during Dry January! We hope you'll be back to see us again for round two sometime soon. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Chablis owens: It's the best bar in the city. The owner is an incredible person and if you get the chance to be served by him your night is going to be a thousand times better than you thought it would be. It is legitimately the best experience at a bar in DC you can possibly find. And it's not even a strip club. That's rare.
Response: Thanks for coming by, you rock and were lucky to have guests like you!

Annie: Cool bar with a chill vibe. Came here on a Monday night at 630 and there were only 2 other groups. Not the typical DC bar. There are a few tables and the bar to sit at. The cucumber mule was really good!
Response: You can always count on us for good vibes and great drinks, Annie. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your cucumber mule. Come back and see us for more cocktails in the future! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Noah Wahquahboshkuk: Aesthetically pleasing atmosphere and 2 sides to choose for your pleasure. The first side is more of an elbow-to-elbow-packed environment with loud music. The second side is a more relaxed spread out environment to hold more intimate conversations with friends. Being new to the area, ordering a beverage similar to the drink of preference (Weiser) was difficult due to the unfriendly bartenders. Kinda gave me the you-don't-belong-here vibe. The suggested brew was not the best, but the gin and tonic was great! Bathrooms clean as well as the main areas. Would come back and maybe study up on what is offered on tap.
Response: You can always expect good vibes from our place, Noah. We’d never want you to feel like you don’t belong here, and we’re sorry if that was the case. Next time you swing by, we’ll make sure to find you a brew you’ll love. Hope to see you back soon so we can impress you with our friendly service and unique tap selection. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

David Benjamin: Booked a private event in their larger bar area and cannot say enough good things about Lindsay and the team as well as the space. The drinks were great, we received numerous compliments from our guests on the venue, and Lindsay was a huge help planning the whole thing. By far the best, most professional experience I've had booking an event space/bar in the DMV!
Response: We’re so happy you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you so much for the kind words.

Corey Nolan: Always have a great time in this nostalgic Bar. Brian "Bar Man" has done an outstanding job building his dream. Staff is super friendly and they have stepped up their cocktail game since I last visited. Glad I was able to ring in 2022 in such good company! Thanks C&C team! Stay safe!
Response: We're glad to hear you always have a great time with us, Corey. Our friendly staff is always here to take care of you and treat you to a cocktail. We hope you'll be back to celebrate with us sometime soon. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Adriana Cortés-Buelvas: I absolutely love the Crown and Crow. Great cocktails and a huge offer on drinks. Great indie rock music, feels like an Irish experience.Graham is the nicest!
Response: You can always count on us to show you a good time, Adriana! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your cocktails and the music. Hope to have you back again sometime soon! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Adam Adam: I went there for the first time last night I had the worst bartender in town. First he didn't even greet me or anything he walked up to me and asked me very rudely what do you wanna drink didn't, but I seen him greeting other guest properly so if I had to guess it might have to do with the fact I have an accent. I wasn't very familiar with the beers so asked him what's the lighter beer you have he laughs and said Guinness. I never been treated this way in this city.
Response: Adam, very sorry you had that experience, The Crown and Crow's staff represents cultures from 3 continents. One of our core values is that "everyone is invited to the party." I'm Brian, the owner/manager and I bartend on Fridays, please come by and let me buy you a drink and show you the hospitality that we are known for.

Union District Oyster Bar & Lounge: what do users think?


Vanessa Blackwood: A group of us went to celebrate a friend's birthday on 4/22/22. We chose VIP seating. We were escorted to our seats, and waited for at least 20 minutes before we saw the employee who seated us. We advised him that a waitress had not come by our table to take our drink or food orders. He got a waitress quickly and she took our drink orders. She informed us that the kitchen was behind and that there was a pause on taking food orders. During that wait, we did enjoy the DJ and the live band. We were given the opportunity to order, but it seemed as though just about everything was sold out. We were told that there was no more chicken, nor pizzas. We opted for fried oysters, and truffle fries. The oysters had absolutely no seasoning whatsoever. Additionally, tables next to us got wings after we were told that the chicken was finished. (that group arrived significantly later than we did.) TLDR: The music was great, but the food and service left a lot to be desired. Go and enjoy the music, but have dinner somewhere else first.

Michael Anderson: Enjoyed the food and enjoyed the service from the bartenders. My friend and I had never been here and decided to give it a try. The food was great, excellent bartenders and very courteous staff however, management(short Hispanic woman) tonight was horrible. She approached my friend and I tonight while we were at the bar spending a lot of money and reached in to grab a seat at the bar. We kindly told her his wife was on the way in from the car and we were told by her the seats at the bar had a reservation even though we had been sitting there eating and drinking over an hour prior to her coming up to snatch the seat. Who reserves seats at a bar? She had a very nasty attitude and when we kindly said this seat is taken and that my friends wife had walked out to the car, but was coming right back the manager said she was the owner and she had the right to take the seat. I paid our bill and tipped our awesome waiter and then we left. I made sure to tip well tonight, but we will not be back. Again the food is great, but the lady/management on the staff tonight was absolutely horrible with customer service. I really feel bad for your bartenders. They lost a lot of money tonight.

Arlene Fleming: I really didn’t want to post this due to the pandemic and businesses need to stay afloat however, my husbands birthday event was straight out of a “pranked” episode. The only good thing was the drinks. A one hour dinner turned into four hours because of the food. I worked with the chef for weeks preparing for the dinner for ten. The menu was wrong, the orders were wrong. The dessert was burned so the chef offered sugar rice. Then tried to charge full price. I continue to have nightmares about the event and finally decided to leave a review because as much as I want to support businesses, businesses should work to receive support!

Iris Odor: I patronized this business for the first time post covid and it was disappointing. I have visited previously and it was always great drinks, food and hospitality, so I had expectations. I invited friends for happy hour and there was a bartender who did a poor job of conveying the happy hour menu and bamboozled us into spending $35 for 1 plate of food (fish n chips) and got everyone's order wrong. I understand that businesses are still making up their losses, but that 20% gratuity should cover it. I'm not sure if it's under new management, but I will not return and will spend my dollars elsewhere. I gave 2 stars because the fish was good. $60 for 2 drinks and 1 plate during a happy hour

Keshia Wideman: We celebrated here on Karaoke Wednesday. What a fun, entertaining, and sociable setting. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and the band was lit 🔥. Kareem, and his wife where very nice to us with our 101 year old uncle. Yes, he was so excited about the women , and the music. We felt so good to be among our dmv people. Will definitely be returning.

Melissa Bostic: It was my first visit for a good friend's birthday party. The atmosphere was great and the staff/ DJ/food was on point!

Rachel Haywood: I think this might be the worst meal I’ve had in my 8 years living in DC. There’s a reason this place was almost empty at 7:30 on a Saturday night in the busy union market neighborhood. The shrimp and grits were comparable to Waffle House, the wine was room temperature (and it was about 80 degrees inside), and the cocktails were watered down and overly sweet. Oysters were fine but some of them were really small. Everyone working there was super nice, except for one guy who, when asked if there was soup available, laughed….it’s listed on your menu - this is not an absurd question to ask. The menu was also pretty pathetic. Several people came in and left after looking at it. This place would be a fantastic candidate for Bar Rescue. It’s got potential but there’s no way in hell I’m coming back given the million other options in DC.

kelli johnson: This place used to be amazing.. but apparently going down hill fast. They cut the amount of food down, however the price stayed the same.. the food didn't taste as good as I remembered it. The charbroiled oysters were just ok.. the wings were over cooked & instead of getting 10 like I was supposed to, I only got 7 & the only explanation I got for it was "oh we cut down ".. I guess the cut down on the raw oysters as well because I was only able to get a half dozen, but again the price was the same. In addition, the bathrooms we dirty.. urine everywhere! Highly disappointed

HersheyKiss Shelton: Great ambiance! Gives grown vibes! If the club is open then so should the kitchen. It's always closed. I ordered chargrilled oysters, it was more like they heated the oysters,then sprinkled cheese and served them. No seasoning no taste oysters very small yet over priced. Do better!!!

D Harper: Great Food. Very Friendly service. Atmosphere was welcoming. 1st floor is great for dinner or watching the games at the bar. 2nd floor gives a more Intimate, chill, lounge feel. Excellent vibe.

9:30 Club: what do users think?


Brian Copes: I believe it was my second time at this club and it was a great time! Context - I went to a pride/DJ/ drag show event, but I believe it’s a concert venue in the DC area. Security - I believe they have a metal detector and they check your bags so be prepared and consider that from a time management standpoint. Venue- it’s huge with multiple levels including bars, bathrooms and places to stand/dance/watch. I heard there’s a lower level, but last night I was just on the balcony and main floor near the stage. Vibe - loved the mood and energy. It was packed around 11PM EST even though it started at 10PM. There’s was free water, disco ball, alcohol, lights, go-go dancers and people in the mood to have a fun night. Overall, I would recommend this place for a night out.

Ian Pitts: Cozy venue with multiple bars and some food options. Parking is only a block or two away and there are options for food right nearby within walking distance. The ticket checking process was smooth and they even checked a camera that was deemed "professional" for free during the show.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: First time I went to the 930 Club was the one on F Street in 1990. I was a senior in high school and went to see the Ocean Blue perform. They encored with the Smiths' "There is a Light that Never Goes Out" that night. The experience was incredible and indelible. The energy in that small crowded space embodied everything about live music that I enjoyed and was such a milestone for me in my young musical journey. When they moved to their current location a few years later, I was dubious about how it would be. But it didn't disappoint. I saw countless shows there from Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Morphine, and so many more. It somehow had the same intimate energy even in such a larger space. Now back after 2 decades in California, I have come to appreciate it even more. Recently saw Caribou and the Midnight and both shows were epic. Great sound, and always can get a good angle on the stage. Look forward to enjoying many more shows here in the years to come.

Anna S: I just took my daughter and her friends to this venue for the first time for an all ages show last night. I am so glad that I did! She and her high school friends had a great time! My friend and I had a nice view from the balcony bar and were able to enjoy ourselves and have our eyes on the girls at all times. We called the club earlier in the evening and the woman who answered the phone gave us great instructions on where to park as well! They take the mask and vaccinations proof seriously as well, which made me feel more comfortable about safety. Bathrooms were clean at the beginning and f the night. Overall, for a place to get 4 decades of people all enjoying the same music and scene, the 9:30 Club did a great job.

Michelle: What an awesome venue! I recently saw one of my favorite bands here and was blown away! The sound in this club is amazing! You can feel every beat and note. Also, great staff! Keeping it safe, but fun. 👍🏻👍🏻

Tori Barker: We barely waited in line and we showed up 15 minutes before the show began which in my opinion was fantastic. When I say barely waited I mean the staff greeted us immediately, looked at our vax cards and IDs and because my boyfriend had lost his mask we had to wait 1 minute so the staff could grab us one. The staff were so kind and even though it was super cold they had such a great attitude and welcoming vibe. So thankful for everything at the venue. The people inside were also great and of course the Bartender, fantastic. I could not ask for more from this venue. The set up inside is stunning and our show was amazing! I am from NC but came up to D.C. to see Misterwives and I am so glad it did. A night to remember from start to finish, thank you 9:30 for all you do to keep entertainment alive during these times.

Kevin Fiol: Great venue! Sound was awesome. Stage allows for great views etc. However... I was charged $2 for a 6oz cup of water. They do not sell bottled water (or intentionally sold me a TINY water) There's no place to smoke or vape once you enter the venue so you have to go outside and then go through the entire line again.

Nathan Faneuf: Amazing venue, been here twice so far. Would definitely see a show here. Bring ear plugs, very loud, but good sound. Drinks are expensive, 9 dollars for a shot of Jack Daniels. Friendly staff.

Osaurus G: This is a pretty good venue. Love all the bars and the openness of the floor. The balcony area offers some great views of bands (Bob Mould for me)

Aida mary: Absolutely fantastic venue for a live show! I watched Saint Paul and the Broken Bones plus Thee Sacred Souls play here. The energy was lit! Great location. Great customer service! Would definitely go again. Highly recommend

Nicholas Stephens: Had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner here. A party of 8, we were seated in the back by the kitchen. Ambiance was vibrant, music selection was great throughout the night and our server was very attentive. Got the fried snapper fish, came with a full body fried fish! Skin was crispy and flavorful, and the meat was tender. Rice and side salad came with the dish, provided good balance. My partner tried the Carolina Gumbo, to her liking! Will definitely return for date night or just a nice random dinner outing. Enjoy!

Warman Hall: This may be one of the funnest times I've ever had dinning out while out of town! The restaurant is beautiful and they've done a great job of decorations. The menu is an interesting and varied offering based on Southern soul food and New Orleans cuisine. I was able to join a large group of people and the restaurant was able to accommodate us wonderfully. The live music was also fantastic. I highly recommend the chicken fried steak!

Drea Dawson: The food was decent. The atmosphere was nice, with the exception of the large homeless area across the street which is very sad. However, it deterred us from sitting out side. Service was horrible. The restaurant was pretty much empty and still took 30minutes to make our meals. The server rarely checked on us. The bread was cold and super dry. The drinks were really good. Parking was of course horrible in the location it is placed. The valet is $20 cash only, the man was nice enough to let me cashapp him. The worse part is that they added Gratuity of 20% to a table of 2 people. It's like they forget that people earn tips not demand them. The prices of the food is too expensive honestly for what you get. I hope they are paying all of their staff extremely well outside of tips with the cost of everything and automatically adding Gratuity. I was going to tip the young lady well anyway, due to being a server in college, but the auto Gratuity that she said is their policy total turned me off from the place. For Salmon, spinach, fries, and fried green tomatoes it was roughly $88. Yes you read that correctly. I will say the salmon was large and Cooked well.

Florence: Georgia, oh Georgia! Scrumptious Southern fare. With a last-minute reservation, I came here on a Tuesday night with 6 other people (2 children) and we were seated right away. Service was extremely friendly and fast. I highly recommend the Appetizer Sampler which is good for 4-6 people or 2 people as a decent meal. While every item was great, the standout, hands-down were the Devils on Horseback (bacon-wrapped dates, goat cheese, and oil and vinegar). Then I super enjoyed my Carolina Gumbo- a rich stew full of spicy andouille, okra, duck, shrimp, chicken, lump crab meat, and rice- WHAT?! Leftovers reheated well the next day. For dessert, though we were all full af, we all took spoonfuls (or more!) of the Brioche Bread Pudding. Their food packed with heart and soul keeps Georgia Brown's on my mind. NOTES: **Wheelchair-accessible, clean restroom **Street parking mildly available, several parking decks close by.

Dan Larson: Friendly and attentive service. Our waiter was awesome. We had 5 people at our table and the food was a mixed bag - some dishes were fabulous and others not so much. Surprisingly the fried chicken was dry and tough. Dishes did not come out all at once, with a 15 minute delay from the first dish to the last. Overall atmosphere was very nice with live music. I'd try it again, hopefully next time the kitchen will be doing better.

Jon Kemp: The wife gives it 5 stars. It's no Mike's American when it comes to service but I've never NOT seasoned food after tasting it. They ran out of the extremely delicious according to Jose our waiter. So I had to settle for the stuffed shrimp which was very good. The others in our party loved ❤ the food. Sweet peach tea as good & sweet as it was Wasn't as good as Mike's. The fried chicken was great according to the wife. Catfish appetizers crunchy but even with the dipping sauce can be a pass even though we cleaned the plate. WARNINGS the bill total includes a 20% tip. Pay the tax and the subtotal not the suggested amount. I double tipped. My mistake, don't let it be yours. Dessert was brioche bread Pudding and not as sweet as the hot peach cobbler and I got the ice cream separately.

Laurie Saunders: Enjoyed Sunday brunch and music. The whole experience was wonderful. Creative food pairings we would never tried on our own. Last day for the current band. Hoping they will be back soon. Such a talented bunch. 🎶

Misty L. Smith: So this is Georgia Browns in Washington DC!!!! It is a must try when visiting Washington, the food, decor, atmosphere and service professionals were excellent! Johnathon was our server and was terrific!! Now the food was incredible, we ordered 4 entrees, the lamb chops, Devil shrimp, country friend steak and Crab cakes, let me tell you the food was amazing!!! The jalapeño corn was amazing!! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

Sharon Nichols: Love going to this black owned establishment. The brunch is always good. Ryan @ the bar is Great, his customer service skills are phenomenal and as a mixologist his cocktails are always on point! Best Paloma I've ever had!

Crystal Gaskins: I don't even know where to start. Over all great experience!!!! Diamond is the best!!!! The people that mentioned her in the reviews didn't lie.... She is great!!!! The food was good also. The Greens and Mac and cheese that I ate off someone else's plate was awesome. We will definitely be back!!!! Oh the peach martini from the bar was perfect!!!!

State Theatre: what do users think?


Daniel W: Lots of fun. Comedy show. Service was good. Show was good Got the grilled wings and blue moon beers. Doors opened at 1900 show started at 2030. Got there at 1930. Place was setup for comedy show specifically. Tables on first floor (half reserved (2 days in advance) half first come first serve with food minimum purchase) upstairs had balcony, movie theatre seats and high chairs with drink rail. The balcony had about 20 seats along rail but is mostly for standing. Bathrooms clean and venue were old (1920s movie theatre) but clean. Will definitely be returning. Configuration is different for different show types (like concerts). Parking was easy (hospital parking garage across street).

N. Moore: Nice Venue! Friendly staff. Enjoyed food and drink, plus comedy show a little over 20 bucks.

Chloie French: I was having a great time. Then a waitress yelled at me to be quiet during a comedy show…….. the people behind me were also laughing very loud. Then when I went to the bar to order a drink she gave me very ugly looks. I felt very uncomfortable and will not be coming back. I really do not understand what I did to deserve this behavior. Other than that the drinks and food were having good. I just felt so uncomfortable from her being nasty to me I will not be coming back. I will also be posting about this on all my social media.

Sally Hamilton-White: The staff was very friendly. They were however UNDERstaffed. My food was cold and took about a hour to get my appetizers, definitely not worth the wait. Parking on weekends is easy,-free at the Kaiser, the drinks were reasonably priced and the talent is subjective. Not sure if I'll go back tho.

Tracy Morris: I attended the $5.00 comedy show on 032522 and it was a bargain for quality entertainment. There were 16 comedians and each was hilarious. Thus was my first attendance at the The State theatre but it won't be my last.

Anthony Shoraka: Good food ... full bar ... attentive and friendly service ... and FREE live music in an outdoor setting ... what more can you possibly ask for?

Ronda Bernstein: It is an interesting venue in that it is a mix of tables and standing area. They could definitely fit more people in if it wasn't for the tables. But it is small enough to have a good view from anywhere (except the tables since people are standing in front of you). Seems to be *the* place to go if you like tribute bands. Parking is free on the Friday nights and the weekends in a garage across the street. Also, staff at the venue are quite pleasant and do a great job helping out and keeping aisles clear.

Ramiro Marquez: We had our wedding reception here and are absolutely thrilled with how everything turned out. The staff was super helpful and really went above and beyond. The communication was great during planning. For the event, we really felt like they were happy to be there. Everything went without any issues whatsoever. If you’re considering this as a venue for a reception, I would highly encourage you to do so.

Adam Grafton: Visited during the Demonatized Tour.A thoroughly excellent venue with a variety of seating, a fantastic menu and wonderful service! I do advise getting the steak & cheese with fries~

Dustin R: Surprisingly spacious inside. Food was good, we has the loaded tots with chili and the tots were crispy even though it was covered in cheesy chili goodness, was definitely enough for 2. Also had the chicken tender and they were good also. Mixed drinks were like $8 but considering the location and that its an entertainment venue i guess thats not too bad. Would definitely attend events here again

Barcelona Wine Bar: what do users think?


Eva Milstein-Touesnard: This food was SO good and the bread is house made fresh and complimentary! 😉 so you know we got LOTS of bread. Also, the price wasn’t too bad for dine in! The wine was also really good. And such an amazing vibe inside and outside. Overall loved it!

Nik Rama: Barcelona is always an amazing chain of restaurants to get high quality drinks and tapas. The four of us were quickly seated and ordered several tapas and drinks. The tapas were incredible (I forgot to take photos and only got one…). Empanadas were super tender and savory on the outside while encased in a crispy exterior. The other crispy fried appetizers with with cheese and meats were unique and delicious in their own ways. The view of the street from this restaurant is also great. You can watch the bustle of the city go by while enjoying the cool and shaded seating of this restaurant. The only reason for the 4 stars is because it’s a zoo here. So many people trying to come eat here leads to long lines and people loitering outside. Make sure to come during a non-peak hour to enjoy this experience itself!

Анжела Четина (Сексолог и психолог): Visited Washington from DC for two days and I am happy o could come to this cozy restaurant. In December I could eat outside thanks to heaters which is amazing, food is good quality, big variety of choices. Amazing ambiance, small piece of Spain 🇪🇸 tasty, stuff is friendly and smiling, wine is also high quality with an incredible smell. Highly recommend that place !

Erick Vivas: The food is very good! The place is beautiful but too loud! I was very happy with the tapas. All of them simply delicious.

Jay Law: Although we got seated immediately, on a Saturday nonetheless, service was slow. Now, that doesn’t take away from quality of the food but it’s definitely hinders your experience some. Which the said, the tapas style menu items are perfect for someone who like to taste and try different foods. The drinks were great and vibe was on point.. plus, it’s patio is great for afternoon eating and people watching in DC.

Alex Gonzalez: Amazing atmosphere and the Sangria is by far the best we have had. For food we had the charcuterie and the meats and cheese we had were absolutely amazing. It seems to us that they have very fresh ingredients. The staff was very friendly and service was top notch. It’s worth checking out if you live here or are from out of town and want an enjoyable dining experience. We highly recommend it. Edit 1. I forgot to talk about the bread. The freshest bread I have had at any restaurant.

Mica Ann: I’ve tried Barcelona Wine Bar when vacationing in Denver and our experience was rather intimate. It was definitely a shock for me to not only have an extremely crowded bar but also too loud of a music you cannot even hear yourself giving the order. Server recommended two to three tapas per person which is about right. We ordered ten tapas and the only ones I remembered are: patatas bravas, shishito peppers, boquerones (sardines), mussels, ham croquettes, shrimp in garlic, and half paella seafood. We just came back from Spain two weeks ago and all of the tapas we ordered are very much comparable in taste, quality, serving size, and price. So I am very happy about that. The place is extremely packed when we came in at 10:15pm with a reservation. The service is rather slow. I think our waiter has way too many tables for him to handle. The manager actually served our first round of tapas and got our order drinks. I was very impressed that he remembered our drinks without writing them. Got me a little bit worried that he got them right because it took a very looong time before our drinks came. But hey, he got them 100% right! Five stars for the really great tapas and good but not great paella. Five stars also for the cocktails and wines we ordered. I’m normally empathetic coz the world is short-staffed. But I think since this is a franchise, they had a choice not too accept too many customers or to hire more help and whatever their choice was, it was not displayed right the night we visited. Less one star for the awful service. This is a wine bar, not a nightclub. Less another star for the too loud music. Make sure you make a reservation especially on weekends and holidays.
Response: Hello, my name is Emily and I am the general manager at the Barcelona wine bar on 14th st. Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your dining experience. I would love to chat with you more, at your convenience. My email is ekunda@barcelonawinebar.com- please let me know when you are available to connect. Thanks again- Emily

Rebecca Kert: Virtually everything was a 10/10. The server had super helpful recommendations. The drinks were creative and delicious— especially the guns and rose and bourbon spice. All the tapas we ordered was delicious and the bread was wonderful. Fun atmosphere but still family friendly.

Ivy Chan: You’re paying for the environment. Pricey dishes. I went for brunch and their tapas dishes are small and overpriced. Taste was good but not worth the price. The braised pork was barely 2 pieces and cost $9. Lots of alcoholic drinks to choose from.
Response: Hi Ivy, My name is Danielle Miranda and I am the Assistant General Manager at Barcelona Wine Bar. I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your dining experience. I would like the chance to talk to you and hear more of your feedback. My email is dmiranda@barcelonawinebar.com and I hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Danielle

Miguel Curiel: Popular place with delicious food and drinks. This may not be the best place to have a deep and intimate conversation, but it is a great pick if you’re searching for a youthful ambiance, party-like vibes and some good Spanish meals + wine! Due to its popularity, it is strongly advised to reserve beforehand (tried to walk in once, estimated waiting period was 45 minutes which actually ended up being 2 hours i.e. it is VERY popular and entails lengthy stays).

Dani Weissman: I love this place! Monday night jazz is absolutely rockin'! Super friendly staff, great food, and cool art on the walls. I also love hanging in their back patio during the set break. The pizzas in particular are superb. It's the kind of place where you walk in and feel immediately welcome. The whole place has a very intimate feel.

Teanna Abraham: The Husband and I went on a whim looking for a place to dance. We drove by and I was immediately turned all the way off. It looked like a scary, whole in the wall time forgot from the outside. Man was I so wrong! It was vibrant and lively . The drinks were decent crowd was cool and DJ on FIYAH! We found our new spot on Saturday nights. We are over 40 and house music heads. Most of the folks there fit the same description. However anyone would feel welcomed.

Alexandra Wisbiski: I am rarely in this part of town, but when I am, Simple is the perfect place to relax and grab a bite and a drink! The people are so welcoming and take good care of you. I love the salchipapas and quesadillas, but you can't miss with anything on the menu! I also loved the mango margarita. I definitely recommend sitting on the back patio- in the age of outdoor dining, the large tables and umbrellas make it easy to relax and stay a while!

Sharon Jackson: I really enjoyed myself....I don't do a lot of comedy shows especially on a Sunday evening! I had a great time along with my Beautiful Cousins! I Will differently visit the place again! The ppl and vibe was really nice!💋

Tania Briceno: This is the best restaurant and best bar in this section of Georgia street. Unexpected to us. Their cocktails are all made with fresh, top quality ingredients and so is their food. We had the carne asada sandwich and the pizza and they were delicious. Great service, great atmosphere (lighting and music) and a fun patio for kids to hang out

Ivy Pearson: This place is a hidden gem. The food was delicious and the restaurant has good vibes and delightful staff.

Jenifer Golson: It is a great place! Delicious fresh food! I love the mussels in marinara sauce. They have several big screen TVs where you can watch any sports or even any program you want. The owner comes out to personally greet you. A jewel in the DC Brightwood neighborhood!

Aarti Bansal: The name describes the bar perfectly - Local Watering hole with decent drinks and food. My fiancee wanted to catch a football game (there are 5 screens!) and grab some food. I enjoyed a glass of the house red and nachos with guacamole. I sampled the mysterious sangria in the large pitcher and it's as good as it looks, skip it. Mustafa, our server and part owner, was friendly and nice. Although the place isn't fancy and doesn't have very nice seating or decor, I can see why the locals like to come here.

Hugh Lawrence: Went here on a whim. I was very pleasantly suprised. Ping pong, good music, etc. The owner, Will, is super cool, the food is good, the artwork on the wall is amazing (even the bathroom is cool) and the customers are cool. Seriously, you'd be insane to give less than 5 stars. Not paid to say this. Just a fact. It's solid. BTW, the beer selection complaint? They literally have 40 beers.

Angie Whitehurst: Day or night, a great place to get away from the daily grind.Handicapped accessible. Simple easy stress release: color book sheets and crayons are at each table to help one, Chill and cool out before placing an order. The menu suits both vegan and non vegans. The salads are savory and beautifully presented. Open and airy inside decor, with a wide open spaced bar and what grabs you is the music, the friendliness of the staff and the camraderie of local patrons, friends and groups congregating. If you are a night hawk, and want to dance the night away, this is the place!

Busboys and Poets: what do users think?


Mozart Jimenez: Pretty neat joint with books + delicious food. Their Dining area is a bit small which is why we made a reservation in advance just for them to still make us wait about 30-40 for a table, their reservation system is very pointless. The wait staff were super tentative and on point when it came to our refills and overall food satisfaction. I was able to try their sweet potato hash which I feel was a bit too small of a portion, nonetheless it was very delicious! French toast are a 10/10 recommend so soft but also crunchy. Definitely would love to try this place out again if I’m ever in the area.

Pat S: I’ve been to this location several times, the service was horrible tonight. They sat us down but don't show up for a long time. Busboys has a large menu with a great variety of meat, vegan-friendly, and health conscious options! Fair prices and great vibes, nice bookstore collection you can come here for any occasion. The brunch is tasty as well, please check out the events for open mic/poetry night. Dope free spirited spot!

J M: Out for Sunday brunch with my friend and what a great experience with our server Asha! We will be here every seek to enjoy more great Sunday vibes! The salmon benedict , grits and french toast were all amazing!

Galen Oettel: Large menu with a great variety of meat, vegan-friendly, and health conscious options! Vibes are great whether you’re with a date, friends, or family. Friendly staff. The vegan “egg” wrap was amazing; very flavorful and the fake sausage was a great touch. Multiple side options but I recommend the grits. Can’t wait to come back to try more menu items!

Dhruv Jaiswal: Great fooodd amazing drinks ! The bloody Mary was so good that we ordered one too many. Definitely recommend trying the bloody Mary. The cauliflower wings were amazing and a must try as well. The hummus was okay.

Jamila Abdulkadir: First of all the service was super quick and really great overall! The sandwiches are on point 🙌🏾🥪🍟☕️. I had a nice time sitting outdoors with a friend. It’s a busy area so park at the metro nearby or at the CVS adjacent to the restaurant.🍹

Claudy S: Prior to our visit, we had to leave another B&P location because no one got to our table in less than 12 mins. We left and came straight to this one and the difference was obvious. A minute after being sat, we were greeted by our waiter (Dee) with a smile, waters and etc. Our food and beverages was brought to us all in great timing and presentation was on point. Even during our service there were other staff that checked in on us and made sure we were well taken care off. You can tell that this Takoma location really devote their time to give stellar service to customers and I’m sure that come from management on down. We don’t know why we tried the other location because we come here a lot. It’s just great to know that every time, we’re here, it’s always a good experience. Thank you again and we will be back!

Cami Rose: What a delightful restaurant/book store! If you dig Langston Hughes and great eats, GO HERE.

Janie T: Fantastic spot. The atmosphere is relaxing and wait staff provides attentive service. Would definitely go here again. had the new delicious, beautiful roasted vegetable sandwich and it was to die for. The portions were perfect and saw the hamburgers were huge and quickly eaten. Would Bus Boys consider bottling their citrus Salento dressing? Mayo?

Tyler Witman: Great food, good service, and even better events. The sangria and dc tap water are great cocktails. The brussel sprouts are a great starter and I always love the shrimp and chorizo pasta!

21st Amendment Bar & Grill: what do users think?


Fer: Went here because the title made it sound like a nice drinking bar. When we got There we saw it was a holiday in bar.. like you have to go into the holiday in to Use the bathroom kind of bar. Not what we expected Service was great though.. atmosphere was like of a bar at a holiday inn

Joe Hughes: We were a bit disappointed with this restaurant as well as the Holiday Inn that it was in. We wanted to pay with cash and our server talked us into putting it on the room which we didn't want to since there was four of us sharing the bill. The food was just OK and the bill was very high. We didn't go back.

Anthony Raynor: We overall had a good experience with the bar and Grill. it really helped that by staying there, you receive coupons which allowed the children to eat for free. I found the food to be pretty good, Except for the grab and go pizza, which I wasn't really a fan of. I'm not sure what the COVID fee is that was charged extra, and lastly, to charge $10 for such a tiny piece of cheesecake was a bit much.

Pastor Carlos De Lay: The waiter wasn't sure of items on the menu, the wings I had weren't buffalo (taste like a mild sauce). $12 for 6 wings, $3 for a the Mac, $3 for a small order of fries. The waiter only check to make sure we were good three times in the close to 90 minutes of us being there. Also their was anyone to bartend so other's could order what all drink they wanted. This was my first and last time coming.
Response: Mr Pastor Thank you for your feed back I appreciate you making us aware of your negative experience We strive to provided excellent customer service in a timely manner and I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. I would like to invite you for a complementary drink on us to give us one more chance to serve you Thank you

madison coyne: Tonight my mother and I were to have dinner here and in all of our trips especially with Holiday Inn, this has to be the worst restaurant we have dined at. First it was good, we got our drinks the soda didn't have ice but we chose to overlook it because who cared right then. As we looked at the menu we were highly dissatisfied with the choices (and the prices). Once we were finally ready to order the waitress, who was nice at the beginning, started getting really snarky when my mom had asked for things off of her burger. Eventually she walked up and a minute later a new waitress comes up, very professional. After our food came out, my moms burger looked horrendous, while my spicy pasta looked decent. As I started to eat the chicken from my pasta, the texture was off and so was the taste... Making me nauseous in the middle of our meal so I didn't even finish my meal. $71.00 dollars for pretty mediocre food. 3/10

Sancha: The chicken tenders are not tender. They are dry and subpar at best. The service was derelict. The place is understaffed the staff undertrained and the kitchen struggles to execute simple food orders. The servers are kind but it’s a disservice to them to handle such a large number of tables. It took over 10 minutes to get three glasses of water. I do not recommend. Hop on the train at Union a few blocks away and just go anywhere else.

Corinne Harvey: Have a drink....skip the food Bartender was great. Drinks were as expected. Dinner however was another adventure. Server sorted her tips from her pocket on our table. DC charges a 5% covid surcharge, to help offset extra sanitation costs.... watched server reset a table with the unused glasses and silverware from the previous guests (that was on their table the entire meal). Crab fritters smelled overly fishy, ribs had the quality of premade "heat & eat" ribs, burgers were dry and tasteless.

Karen George: Not sure how to begin with how disappointed we were. Service: exceptionality bad. No offer to refill drinks, and there were maybe 2 other tables sat. Limited menu and food was way too expensive and not that great. $65 for lunch for 2 is a bit ridiculous even in DC. We were there over an hour, most spent waiting on service.

Savannah Gibson: We got this delivered to our room via Butler at like 11pm. Honestly the food was better than we expected given the reviews. My husband got the burger and I got the fried chicken sandwich. Both were trending on the "delicious" category. Knocked a star because portions weren't that big for the astronomical price we paid for *decent* food lol. We're from Texas. That meal would've been $25 in texas... $50 here.

Carolyn Newman: Spent $50 not counting tip for a serving of Mac and cheese, chicken fingers and fries. Oh and one Diet Coke. Was charged a Covid fee whatever that is. Very slow, but food wasn’t too bad.
