The Pub & The People: what do users think?

Ethan Z: Great Restaurant!! This Restaurant is in the city area and offers indoor and outside seating!! The menu is rather small but the food and drinks were great!! The wait staff were friendly and professional!! The restaurant was also clean and well presented. The bathrooms are coolly decorated too with people sending pictures in of there family pets in to be featured on the wall. Overall great!

Becky Gomez: Such a great spot for a lonely, taveling vegetarian! 😂 Bar service was superb and a delightful vibe. Great beer selection. Perfect shishitos 🌶️ and tempura cauliflower!

AJ Hendricks: Pub and the People is our favorite outdoor spot in Bloomingdale. The beers they have on tap are great, and the food (specifically, the Black Bean burger and "The Heidi" Fried Chicken sandwich) is very solid. The tempura cauliflower sauce is also amazing. Matt, the manager, is very friendly and just a welcoming face to see when you come in. This radiates through the whole staff. The happy hour specials are awesome, and run for most of the day on the weekends. Enjoy!

Parker Kelley: Very great experience here ! We’ve passed this place numerous times and I’ve always said I wanted to try it. So, we finally did ! I ordered the Heidi chicken sandwich which was very tasteful. It came with a side of fries which were also very good. The service was great - 3 or 4 people continuously came to check on us. I’d definitely eat here again.

Bobbi DeAnda: Such a great brunch spot! The outdoor patio is pup friendly (and the bathroom inside is a must see for dog lovers haha). The biscuits and gravy with fried chicken was TO DIE FOR. So yummy! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

Callum Wayman: A great local pub for people in Eckington and Bloomingdale. The pub offers a great selection of beers, wine, and cocktails as well as an excellent food menu (try the tempura cauliflower, chicken sandwich, and the fries). In the winter they offer group seating around large fire pits for small gatherings. I found that to be a huge boon when trying to gather friends outdoors while being mindful of COVID during the winter. The staff are nice and helpful.

Amy Burdon: Had dinner and played trivia - food menu was fairly short but with lots of tasty items - I enjoyed the curry wings and gazpacho. Staff were friendly, happy hour drinks were a good deal. All positives!

CIRCA at Foggy Bottom: what do users think?

Kelly Crenshaw: We were going to another spot and one of my group said "what about here" as we came out of metro. They had a large party cancel so we were able to get in. Everything was great. Food was fantastic and we all were happy leaving. The mac and cheese might be there best I have ever had. I been thinking about and I can not remember a better bowl of mac and cheese... it was that good.

Jessica R: We decided to come here on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We came for more of a late lunch/early dinner and even though we did not have reservations they still were able to seat us. They did have to seat us in their outdoor area, which was a little chilly but perfectly fine. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The food was great! I got the blackened chicken mango salad and my mom got the barbecue chicken flatbread. Both were very good

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

Ron Milkowski: Stopped in for a quick drink. Great bartender. Seems like a college crowd. Would definitely be back for dinner. Recommended.

Jessica Morales: This lovely corner is perfect, the menu is not big, but it has a good selection of different options. We had as an appetizer tuna poke nachos, the flavor combination and the fresh tuna was so delicious, and as a entree jambalaya, the spicy was on point and the penne pasta cooked to perfection, my husband ordered a braised short rib, the meat was so tender, the mash potatoes has this smooth texture so perfect. Thank you Michael, great service.

Canopy Central Cafe And Bar: what do users think?

Ciara Kalf: The inside is just beautiful. Upscale, but cozy, with lots of light and great view of the waterfront. But you’re definitely paying for it. We made a reservation on a Saturday at 11 AM for brunch, and were surprised that we probably didn’t even need one since they were pretty empty (which was nice honestly). We all agreed our meals were very good (French fries were specially were bangin). Chicken sandwich was super crispy and flavorful but it was dark meat chicken when you bit into it. I prefer a thicker whole white meat. Mimosas were good, they definitely don’t short you on the champagne! Service was great. Our server was very nice, even took some great pictures for us :) Its unfortunate that it’s so expensive (you can see the steep prices on their menu). But it’s a quiet space to have nice conversations in a great ambience.

Jim Haynie: The staff is outstandingly nice here. They are kind and great people. The menu is a bit odd and a few expensive breakfast options. The eggs and chicken sausage is very good. The fruit plate is big! I enjoyed breakfast.

Rachel U: Amazing staff! Sunday brunch was great, the bottomless mimosa were a plus! We had the kale Caesar salad, creamy pesto pasta, and fish tacos.

D. Suazo: The best of this experience was the view! Service was OK, and at times very slow. Waiter was nice but seemed overworked - too many tables to attend. Food was not worth the price and very understated. Only food item that was good was the District wings & fries; cooked perfect & tasty. Mahi mahi tacos had maybe one bite of fish in each taco & mostly flour tortilla. Ordered margaritas and since not on drink menu we were charged $29 per drink😲, we spoke with manager and he did remove the charges. Parking is horrendous and expensive $35 for 3 hours

Jace J: Amazing views, great personable staff. I was made a special cocktail and it was great ! Only thing is they do not accept Apple Cash . Just came for a quick drink and some computer work . Definitely a vibe . Great for lunch and dinner dates

Aya Medhat: Our hostess Tantalia suggested the pizza and chicken wings for our dinner and they both were great. The pizza is a must try was one of the best We’ve ever had. My son insisted on saying thank you to Jason the pizza chef.

Rod Thompson, MD: Awesome view. Brunch selection was good but not great, BUT the food was really good. Deb really was an outstanding server and made our brunch an incredible experience. The bottomless mimosas are definitely worth a try, especially since they have different flavors. I will most definitely eat here again.

Ria: The atmosphere of this place is great! It’s located right by the water and is just the perfect spot for the summer. I’m not sure who the bartender is the day I went but MAN, give them a raise. I asked the waiter to tell them to make me a sweet and strong drink. The first was a pineapple mint margarita and it was sooo good. The second was a strawberry margarita, with fresh strawberries! So awesome. I had chicken tenders and fries. The fries were good but the chicken tenders were a bit dry and underwhelming. At night, if you’re sitting outside they have a beautiful fire pit. I’d definitely visit again!

Avinash Maniam: Good place, great veggie burger and amazing fries. Little more expensive than I expected but it was a nice time. Have to talk a bit loudly but that’s to be expected in a bustling place on a Thursday night. Would recommend. Also, clean bathrooms.

Preston Edge: Great beer, great atmosphere. Excellent service despite being packed! Several Weihenstephaner’s to choose from. Appetizers (fries and fried pickles) were delicious and came with a delicious curry ketchup.

Johnny “Johnny's good life tips” Even: Amazing placeGreat vibeLathe verity of beersGreat German bar food

Vanessa Phillips: Dacha was so cute! Outside, but under gigantic tents with lots of fans. I tried the Duclaw and would recommend it. My friend and I enjoyed our food, the atmosphere, and the service. Lots of dogs. Be aware of the blanket service fee though!

Ryan Boucher: Good atmosphere, but overall pricey bar food. The beer is German but do not expect any German food. Good place overall.

Jamila Jenkins: Great place to bring your dog and try different beers, even hard liquor drinks and tasty food. Can get kind of pricey and crowded if you don’t come early enough. All the staff was very friendly.

TAKODA - Rooftop Restaurant & Beer Garden: what do users think?

Katie Hallock: This place was perfect for a casual date night with some friends. I loved the vibe and decor and definitely loved the seating on the balcony. It’s a busy part of town so parking can be nearly impossible and it’s not unusual for your time there to be filled with lots of sirens and ambulances passing by or even loud people on motorcycles. We all decided to go the appetizer route and get one of everything to share. The boneless chicken wings have an amazingly flavorful and crunchy out exterior which is fantastic! The inside is pretty darn juicy, too! But it wasn’t unusual to find a good amount of chewy fat or something going on inside. The truffle fries were super delicious! The old bay tots weren’t overwhelmed by the seasoning, but they were nice and crispy and perfect for dipping in the yummy garlic aïoli. Of the sliders and sandwiches, I personally thought that the barbecue pork was way better than any of the other options. The burger looked pretty boring and I was disappointed in the lack of flavor and the short rib sandwich.

Maalik hutchinson: Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely rooftop restaurant in DC. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing, everything we tasted especially the chicken biscuit. Absolutely the best brunch experience I’ve had while in DC. Highly recommend!

Rahul Panchal: Great place to hangout in downtown with best part they have rooftop sitting area. Rooftop section is little small so you need to come early or wait little longer. The best part is their name of the cocktails, we tried Pfizer gang and Fully vaxxed. 4 star is because they add too much ice to get the taste of cocktails and all cocktails were premixed from tab. We liked the ambience and rooftop section to enjoy few drinks. Worth visiting.

Hector Zarate: Good and affordable place for lunch (awesome brunch deal). Great location for bar hopping after brunch. Food is good. The rooftop views are nice. Fast service and friendly staff. The drink selection was good but most of them tasted like they may have relied a lot on flavored syrups perhaps? so some of them were on the very sweet side. 4 stars overall!

Kimberly Stamets: I had a fantastic time at bottomless brunch thanks to our server, Ramon! If you can, ask for him! The food was tasty and the mimosas were flowing. Great time!

Kirwan’s on the Wharf: what do users think?

Abhinav: Food: 3/5 Ambience:4/5 Service: 3.5 /5 The patio of this place on the wharf is pretty cool. We went there just because of that. The food was very mediocre for the prices they charge. We went around 9:15am, we had to ask for the menu twice, ask the waiter to bring cutlet after food was served. We were give only one menu card for a table of three. I guess the waiter was tired for the day but nevertheless expected better than that.

Kyle D: Cool place at the Wharf. Nice atmosphere, however the food was just okay. I’ve had better fish and chips before (the breading fell off the fish and didn’t seem to be seasoned as well as it could). The crab cake appetizer was very good, however.

Paul LaVigne: Kirwans on the wharf is located right at the waterfront and is a good place to go if you have a hankering for Irish pub food. The location is excellent, and the interior is decorated very nicely, but the back room Bar area was exceedingly warm. That would be ok on a cool evening, however it was 90+ degrees when we went in and they’re looking to get relief from the heat. The bartender/waitress who served us was very nice and did a great job of making us feel comfortable. The food was superb as well. I had the bacon and cabbage meal which consisted of pork loin, bacon, cabbage and I opted for the sweet potato fries. It was one of the best pub meals I’ve had. My wife had the lamb burger with colcannon mash. She said it was the best burger and mashed potato dish she’s ever had.

catch_hug: Great for beers and a quick bite. Waiters seem all very good trained and attentive. Food was spiced dezent and authentically, even though the tuna poke (wich btw is not what you are serving) was way too much sesame. Local craft beers on tap, try the sour.

Sam D: Stopped here to avoid the humid day. Great atmosphere and cool a/c. I grabbed a Chicken Pot Pie and it was the best crispy crust and chicken was on point. Highly recommend 10/10

Elizabeth T.: We stopped in here for a few drinks after a free concert and we’re happy with the prices considering the area. We stayed for a few appetizers and I honestly wasn’t that impressed. It did it’s job with curbing my hunger but it was enough for us to choose to go somewhere else for dinner. They sat us quickly and the waitress was very attentive to our needs and brought out the food quickly.

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!

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 :)

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

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

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

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

garden district: what do users think?

Britt Van: Garden District always delivers: consistently excellent food, beer, wine, service, and atmosphere. Also very dog-friendly. They serve up some of the best BBQ around. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but their fried chicken sandwich is phenomenal (a constant craving). They have a thoughtful, intriguing, well-balanced offering of beer, and perhaps unexpectedly, a delightful and unique selection of wine, and they make an effort to secure some limited releases and other special, novel, or somewhat rare items. You can also find cider, liquor (including some approachable, good bourbon), hard seltzer, and non-alcoholic beverages on the menu. GD are good people: the staff are welcoming, knowledgeable, and on top of it, and provide excellent, no-frills service that keeps the food and drink moving and the vibe laid back. They give a damn about their business and about you. Also, even at their busiest, the bathrooms are clean and stocked, which is a testament to their diligence and care. With the prime location, ample outdoor space, and wide appeal of beer garden fare, GD doesn’t have to go as hard as it does. Garden District would be my go-to spot just from the dependably excellent food, drink, and convenience alone, but above all, it is their diligent and friendly staff and the easy, convivial environment they work so hard to provide that keeps me (and basically everyone I know) coming back. That, and my apparent addiction to their fried chicken.

Shankar Kulumani: Great beer garden in heart of 14th Street. Lots of outdoor seating. Very fast service. Pretzels and burgers are great. 1L beers are reasonably priced as well

Denise Nunez: garden district was a little place I found as I was roaming the DC area. We’re from NY, so we were so pleased to find GREAT, AUTHENTIC southern BBQ. we had the brisket sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese & onion rings. 10/10. Also had some double shot drinks🍺 great vibes, and atmosphere. will be coming back next time 😁👏🏼

Café Riggs: what do users think?

R. Michael Burns: The pancakes I had here were perhaps the best I have ever eaten, due in large part to the lavender honey butter, a truly unique flavor that I absolutely loved. The pancakes themselves were large and lovely -- fluffy inside, nicely caramelized on the outside. A bit pricey, but worth every penny and then some. I was less in love with the Italian chicken sausage, which was a bit dense and ever-so-slightly gamey somehow. Not bad, really, but based on the pancakes I expected better. I also wish they had a greater variety of non-alcoholic drinks. The atmosphere has a sort of old-school elegance with some really nice art deco accents and high, molded ceilings with large windows, giving the place a nice openness and making it a very nice spot for a fancy-but-not-too-fancy breakfast.

Muniba Khan: My friend and I came to Cafe Riggs on a Monday night while we were in from out of town. We were able to book a same day reservation, which was really convenient. The place is really elegant and beautiful, and the service was also stellar. I got the salmon and my friend got the halibut and both were incredibly delicious! We also got the cherry blossom sundae from the seasonal dessert menu and it was really great! I only wish that it had more cherry blossom and less vanilla. My friend tried some of their drinks- they had a special on Martinis for Monday, so she tried the three minis and said her favorite by far was the Vesper. Also, there was a cherry blossom vermouth cocktail off the dessert specials menu that she really liked.

Food Enthusiast: Gorgeous place! I tried the happy hour menu, the drinks were very good and the bartender was a very kind and thoughtful man. If you want to bring a friend to a beautiful place with great ambiance and good food/drinks, look no further! I will definitely come back to try their breakfast menu.

Bethany: Beautiful and delicious experience. This place was amazing. I had the Cafe Royale? It was eggs benedict with smoked salmon and it was absolutely perfect. It was more expensive than I would normally go for for breakfast but it was so good I would do it again. The room was beautiful, the tables were very modern and chic and the food was delicious.

harrisonaslami: Honestly the atmosphere alone is to die for. Went for an early lunch/late brunch on a Thursday. Was seated immediately - lots of seating. Ordered drinks and food and all of it arrived to the table within 5 minutes, presented well with fresh ingredients. Not exactly cheap but not outlandishly priced. Great service. Will come here at least once every time I visit.

Erica Ortiz: This transformed bank space wows with decor, satisfies with food, and stuns with service. The menu could benefit from more raw bar selections, or light fare for after work and happy hour crowds (dinner starts at 5:30), and some additional entree selections. That said, everything I have had here has been delicious and straightforward. A great place for a business lunch, or cocktail hour.

Adam Riemer: Ok TL:DR top ten French fries in the country. They’re right up there with the potato pillows at Arnauds in New Orleans. That’s why five stars instead of three and a half. The fries are crispy on the outside, salted perfectly and melt in your mouth. The server and hostess are incredibly fun and friendly. They’re also professional. Once small issue we had is that we wanted to use our coupon from open table, but it didn’t work because I messed up the date. I asked the hostess if I could rebook but she said it would be fine and was more in a hurry to listen, she just wanted to seat us. To be fair she genuinely didn’t understand why I wanted to rebook, but it’s no big deal. She did her job and when I requested a different table she was very professional and made it happen. She was fantastic, friendly and wonderful. It would have been nice to use the coupon though. I fully enjoyed the Cabernet Merlot blend from Markham and my friend thought the Rose was good. He likes sweet wines and they don’t have any, including in the sparkling section so this was a great alternative. The mussels were delicious, but the fries are the show stopper. My burger came out dry and overcooked to the point where I shoveled it all down as quick as possible so I could just get through it. The lobster ravioli was over cooked and tough. But it is what it is. I would absolutely recommend this place based on the atmosphere, fries and cocktails for a business happy hour or networking event. The atmosphere is perfect for date night, but the food wasn’t prepared right so I would not go here for an actual date. It was likely just an off day. If you’re looking for a bachelorette party, brunch spot or drinks with the girls, this is a definite yes!!!

Georgia Craig: Best coffee I’ve had in DC, good milky got chocolate. Good array of baked goods. Could make the food menu clearer as I didn’t realise there was a food menu until I was served. Good bagels. Could improve cleanliness. Very busy. Rather expensive~ $45 for the food in the photo.

Joy R: Inside and outside space as well as a 2nd floor party area . Very cute. Serves coffee and drinks. The double cheeseburger was very good.

Joe Joe: A fast paced grab-n-go or sit down breakfast eatery that has phenomenal staff service and great avocado breakfast burritos. Went two times while visiting in Washington DC and it’s a must!

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

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

Mariia Sarlayan: Wonderful food, amazing service, beautiful interior, pleasant vibe. A bit pricey for brunch but worth it. I wish more tables outside had umbrellas for shades but even then the experience was memorable.

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

Khadija Khan: The restaurant has changed a lot since the last time I was here! Really friendly staff and nice ambiance! My favorite was the peanut butter and jelly French toast with the jalapeño honey! It’s an Interesting combo but I really liked it. Our server recommended a really yummy mocktail! The food was a little pricey so I’m not sure if I’ll be visiting again any time soon, but the dishes were innovative and delicious.

Andrea Betances: This place is cute and the drinks are really good. Our server was very nice and helpful. The star of the show was the mini gyro. The pasta was eh and the burger was good but not the best we’ve had. I would come again just for drinks and the mini gyros. It seems like the menu changes often which is refreshing so I would love to come back and try new things.

Ardavan Tookaloo: Wow, wow, wow! If you are looking for a “WOW” factor, this is your place. This place is beautiful, romantic and cozy . So if you are with group of friends or you are on a date it is a great place either way. Drinks are unique and generous! Food taste good and delicious! It is really different from typical bars and restaurant. 1000% recommend it.

TexCat: Fabulous in every way. Definitely sit outside if the weather is conducive. Drinks were heavenly - had the ‘Wild Strawberry’.Ordered the sea bass, it was truly wonderful. My friend had the mini gyros and fries. The soft scoop with mango was the perfect light dessert to share after.

Layth Baheej: The food was amazing, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. On top of that, Gustavo, our waiter, have done an excellent job recommendations for drinks, explaining the minute and food sizes. All in all, my birthday and my best friend’s birthday ended up with an amazing customer service and great food. Thank you

SUE: A super cute restaurant in Washington DC that you MUST visit🙌🏻 To be honest I didn’t have any expectations that meals and drinks could be good in such a “fancy” restaurant. The truth is I was so wrong and their food is not only pretty but also delicious. Moreover, the drinks are really nice. What could I say? They just nailed it! I really had a great time and certainly recommend here! You MUST come here when you travel to DC next time. You would enjoy the chill atmosphere and have wonderful drinks and meals here. However the restaurant is quite popular, so I suggest that making a reservation in advance is definitely necessary. ✨One of 2021 Michelin Bib Gourmand Winners in Washington, DC More travel & restaurant recommendations in instagram @itssuechen

We ordered charred octopus, bowls of fries, cornish hen, grilled fish, fish burgers, and a smash burger. Everything was delicious, and we can’t wait to dine here again the next time we pop into D.C.

Miguel Curiel: Delicious food with a lot of vegetarian options and great vibe for bigger groups. Have gone twice, once with a party of 10 and then with a party of 6, and have had the best service on both occasions. The dim lighting and the nice decoration also sets the mood for a great night out with friends. Lastly, all of the drinks and dishes are superb, but especially enjoyed the fried cauliflower.

Ashley Smith: This place was top tier. The cocktail pairings and large/tapas shareable dishes were thoughtfully crafted and delicious. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The ambience was light and decorated added to this elite experience. I sampled quite a few dishes, even a non alcoholic beverage.

Timothy Torres: Perfect for a summer day on the rooftop…which has a retractable roof cover. The food was amazing, the wine glasses were really cool and the staff was friendly. All around great spot for dinner or drinks in the heart of 14th street. My MUST pick are the lamb chops - very tender and the cauliflower.

Rachel White: My goodness, what a great experience! Food was all amazing, as were the drinks. A bit on the pricey end but worth it for the experience. They have smaller plates that can be ordered, sort of family style where a group can order many smaller plates and share it all for variety. My group of four enjoyed everything we ordered. Service was also great.

Nisan A.: Everything is so good in Gypsy Kitchen. The drinks are top notch, the food is hearty, the staff is friendly and professional, and the vibe is fun. One of my favorite places in town.

RITA LIN: Our server Wes was amazing and so attentive. Food is beyond scrumptious. Everything is delicious . Upbeat environment and very casual .

Pinar Ozcan: Solo dinner for me after a busy day filled with meetings. I picked two small plates; the beef kebab with couscous and the crispy chicken briouat. Portion was good, I could just finish because I am not a big eater. But if you are hungry take three.

Matthew Mai: Great food!! We only went for drinks and apps but I was thoroughly impressed by how good the food was, how creative the drinks were, and the internal decor of the restaurant! Will definitely be coming back.

Dan Mou: Generous portion for Tapas, we had 4 dishes split between two people and it was filling. Food quality was very good overall.

Dirty Habit: what do users think?

Olivia M. Wilson: Went to Dirty Habit for brunch and it was good! The fruit was really fresh and the potatoes were crisp. However, the service was decent and they only have bar seats available. Maybe that’s because we arrived an hour before they closed for the afternoon. Either way, the food made up for it. I would definitely like to try their dinner menu.

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

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

Martin's Tavern: what do users think?

Jeannie Hill: We both love historical sites and on multiple occasions have gone to Martin’s Tavern when visiting Washington DC and the Georgetown area. We’ve been privileged to converse with the owner and his daughter to say thanks in person for the food and service. I would guess they do a great job of making each individual dining feel special. The quaint great atmosphere, fantastic food and excellent service add to the fun experience of “stepping back in time”. The individual booths and tables are sufficiently intimate enough for a wonderful dinner and the feel of private conversations. It is remarkable at Christmas time in the midst of festivities; the images attached here are from two years ago. They decorated superbly for the holiday which makes it very homey and celebratory! A lovely mix of people of people groups and whole families dine here. Give yourself enough time to look around and take in dessert, too. The staff was friendly, professional and busy. The menu offers a great selection and everything that we’ve tasted has been enjoyable! Martin’s Irish Coffee, Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas, First Lady Cocktail with a nice raspberry twist, Hot Chocolate, Lobster Risotto, Crab Cakes, Martin’s Shrimp & Gritts, Shepherd’s Pie with Lamb, and Grandma Martin’s Meatloaf are all items that I can recommend. I highly recommend visiting – even during the lunch hour, it may be best to make a reservation as the place is a favorite for locals as well as a destination for out-of-state guests. With its BIG history, it’s rather small in size and tucked on the street corner. It’s not easy to find parking, but definitely worth a good walk.

H D: Delicious turkey dinner with sweet potato purée and green beans. Fair salad and French onion soup. Good service. Decent prices for the portion size. And a very nice, classic atmosphere with interesting history. Does not feel stodgy.

Gerald Brown: We had a proper breakfast here: challah French toast with sausage, bacon, home fries and hot chocolate. Everything was good.

Mica Ann: Make sure to make a reservation as this place gets packed quickly. With its rich history and good food, this is a must visit for every tourist. Like me. There’s no guarantee you will get the historic table you are eyeing. With a reservation, you just might. If there’s a special occasion, include that too in your note. We went for brunch and everything we ordered are good. They offer typical American fair but it’s so tasty. We ordered the corned beef hash and two orders of eggs benedicts (I forgot which one). One order, my mother in law and I split coz we just came from breakfast. lol.

Jacqueline Schillinger: Such a charming spot to grab a drink and a bite to eat! Very delicious onion soup and if you’ve never had a hot brown it’s a great place to try it!

chparatrooper88: Famous Martin’s Tavern. Restaurant of choice for President’s and the powerful. Try the espresso martini. Local dark beer is worth a look. Pricey, but, worth a look. No veteran discount…fyi.

Dan Yu: Best brunch restaurant I have been to in a while!! Their french onion soup and shepherds pie are amazing!!! Bread pudding makes me feel like I had an American grandma. 10/10
