The Palm - Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Janice L: Things started put rocky initially because we weren't greeted by anyone on the front, we went around looking for an employee. But after that, our waitress was amazing! I forgot her name, but she was a very tall female with blondish brown hair, loved her! It was our first time there and she was amazingly helpful with the menu. The oysters, steak and salad tasted amazing. It was the first steak I've ever had at a high end restaurant that WASN'T chewy!! We ordered the NY style cheesecake and chocolate cake for dessert. The cheese cake was a bit too sweet for me, but my fiance loved the chocolate cake. Really glad we decided to stop by here during our weekend stay in DC.

Cindee Sheeler: First time visiting for a friends birthday..Was absolutely amazing. Reggie and the staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very personable. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Upscale dining with an old world vibe, but not stuffy and pretentious. Reggie and a staff member sang to my friend for her birthday and they were wonderful..

Ryan Arnt: Great food, eclectic atmosphere a Steakhouse that sets the bar high. If you get a chance make sure you eat here.
Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It means so much when our customers share their experiences. We are glad we were able to meet your expectations! We hope to see you again soon!

rob santiago: It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing wines, food and service. Kylie was extremely knowledgeable and made great recommendations. She understood exactly how I wanted a monkey shoulder rusty nail and that nailed the night for me. I will be back.

Marie A Smith Robinson: The atmosphere of the restaurant is pleasant. The walls are filled with cartoon sketches of notable people. I would not recommend the seafood dishes, we had the calamari and lobster bisque, they were subpar. We sent back the calamari and the lobster bisque was barely warm. Raisin bread was phonmenal. The steak was excellent mashed potato and asparagus accompanied it well.

Jessica Kelley: Requested a high top, and mentioned a true dairy allergy.. aka anaphylactic shocked and they didn’t Acknowledge either.. even though I made a reservation & made sure to mention this. Also was told to bad we are busy for my high top. My drinks took 20 minutes to get as well! Not a good place for date night unless you want disappointment

Nicole Deloney: The chicken parmeson is probably the best I've ever had. My friend had the steak medallions and they were a little spicey but good to me because I love spicey food. Service was good and prompt.

André Hentz: The service, food, and ambiance is fantastic. We recently celebrated our anniversary at The Palm, and will dine there again for sure.

Andre Monette: Zero stars, very disappointed with my experience here. Called at 8:30 to get a reservation and arrived at 8:45 to be told they close at 9:00 and they could not seat 4 people because they are closing. Really not what I would expect out of a place that bills itself as a go to steak house. Food is mediocre at best, will not return. Bummer because I used to enjoy it pre-Covid. This is the worst review I have ever given.

Gentle John: Good food as you would expect. Our waiter seemed a bit distracted
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Carmine's Italian Restaurant - Washington D.C.: what do users think?


feranda smith: The portion size of this place is HUGE! Good thing is they serve lunch sizes all day for certain items. Lasagna wasn’t one of those so this was definitely dinner and lunch for the next day. Food wasn’t bad, however, you could taste that everything basically comes from a can. Taste a lot like chef boyardee. Drinks were a bit too sweet but not terrible. The highlight was their garlic bread! Now that was amazing!!!! I could just sit, eat that, and be extremely satisfied

Albert Jonathan: Looking for an Italian food in the downtown area, and found this decent Italian restaurant. Overall, we had a great dining experience. The server was very friendly and professional, she started by explaining a few things about the restaurant and told us that the food is supposed to be shared by 2-3 people per portion. Foods taste great and the price is reasonable.

Mark Michael Blue: Great food, however for less than 3 or 4 people not well suited. The only regular tables are available for a menu that only serves family-sizes. So if you go there alone as I did, you either have tons of leftovers or ruin every diet you’re on - also, whatever you order apart from drinks comes multiplied by 4 basically and costs accordingly. So ordering a simple garlic bread sets you back 15 USD and you get like 9 pieces. No issue if you sit at the bar to get human-sized portions, however it tainted the experience a little. Nonetheless, the food was gorgeous and the staff great!

Shad Kearns: Excellent Italian restaurant! We had a great dining experience. The server was very friendly and professional, she started by explaining a few things about the restaurant and told us that the food is supposed to be shared by 2-3 people per portion. Foods taste great and the price is reasonable.

Luke Meyers: Restaurant had a good feel to it. Located in heart of DC. Food was very good and the size of portions family style. Family of 4 and we just did sides, glad we did, plenty for the empty stomachs after walking the Mall and plenty to bring back to the hotel. Place was packed and full of people. Meatballs and eggplant made the family happy. For post dining though not on the menu, a few glasses of limoncello, only the Italian might ask. Food was priced for area.

Mike Olson: First time dining and didn’t realize it’s family style but luckily I’m old enough to sit at the bar where smaller portions are offered. Ordered the Rigatoni with Broccoli and Sausage with a Red Sauce. It was a busy Saturday night and the food took longer to arrive than I’d have liked but once it did I was instantly impressed and very satisfied with the meal. Also worth mentioning that the service at the bar was exceptional and truly professional.

Kim Nguyen: Carmine’s offers family style dishes. By family style, I mean big portions. We ordered a shrimp scampi with linguine for 2 of us. We couldn’t finish half of the portion. It was huge as you can see in the photo (the knife for size preference). Carmine’s is perfect for a family of 4 or more because you can get the most for the value. Reservation is recommended.

Karoline Melo: The place is nice for a family gathering. The dishes are HUGE, really HUGE, it easily serves 5 people. Just a tip: they serve half portion of the cannoli, but you have to ask because it’s not written in the menu. The food is tasty, the chicken parmigiana is one of the best I had. The cannoli was good too!

Kali “KK” Harris: Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! We went for a bday dinner and there was not one dissatisfied person at the table. Before I rave on the food, I must pause and give a huge shot out to our waiter, Morgan. This was customer service at its finest beginning with the hostess staff upon entrance. His service deserves a 22 percent tip so if you get him don't take him for granted, especially now and days were excellent service is hit or miss. Now as far as the food goes, you can look at the pics all day long, yet your eyes will still light up the moment they place those huge portions on your table. (Shot out to those guys as well carrying two arm length plates at a time 😉.) Drinks were delicious and not skimpy at all. No watered down drinks here. Aside from the big portions, everything tasted to perfection! I really could go on and on but I will end by suggesting you try it on your own. Special occasions should definitely be celebrated here 💯.

Joyce Griffin: So much food. Serve many portions. The courses were a great variety, salads, muscles, shrimp, fish, pasta, lasagne, fresh fruit, dessert, beverage. All you could eat. Went as a group to celebrate graduation. Servers were awesome, attentive and made sure we had extra portions if we wanted. Would highly recommend even though price per person was $70. It was worth it.

Clyde's of Gallery Place: what do users think?


Rodney Ibrahim: We were from out of town and decided to catch a hockey game. Unfortunately it didn't occur to us that finding a place to eat before the game would be so hard. We walked into Clydes and it was mobbed. At least an hour wait and we had 2 young children. However the manager on duty saw our struggle and managed to seat us right away. Amazing customer service and I'd give 5 stars just for that! Food was delicious and service was top notch. Go here.

L. H.: great!!! loved it here, our server was so sweet!! great menu for selection and everything was so fresh, highly recommend the oysters rockefeller!! the patty melt is just amazing, it’s like fancy comfort food - perfect for a cold day. fish tacos are also great, portion sizing is on the smaller side, but still fantastic.
Response: Thank you so much!

Ebone Cruz (The Entrepreneur Plug): Where do I start. I swear this place reminded me of Cheers! Literally down to earth bar tender, wish I could remember her name. I ordered the fish tacos and they were seasoned to perfection. The beans and rice weren't the best so I'd suggest fries as your side but you be the judge. Inexpensive stop for a quick lunch the bar and conveniently located from several hotels in the area. Stop by check it out and if you're not a fish person try the chicken combo 1 I think it is.
Response: Thank you so much, Ebone!

Paris H: My friends and I had an okay experience. Our waiter was cool. Our food was good. My only complaint would be the host. Apparently she gave my friends a hard time about the reservation and had a nasty attitude with them. As a waitress myself, hosts are the first people guests communicate with. If their first encounter is greeted with rudeness, that bitterness follows the remainder of their time spent at your establishment.
Response: Thank you for your feedback and review, Paris. We hope to see you again soon!

Sasha Lee: Not bad for a first time visit. I like the overall setup of the place. The food was alright. I had a jumbo shrimp cocktail which was really good for my appetizer then a Reuben sandwich with fries for the entrée. The sandwich was a little dry but it was decent.

Saad Noaman: Great food and amazing service. I had one of my best meals in Washington DC. Atmosphere was amazing. Highly recommend the Nachos, Burger, chicken wings and crab dip.
Response: Thank you so much, Saad!

Monica Fair: 2 stars. Staff seemed to be running away, from the young lady who tried to seat me in the dirtiest seats in the place. The server also ran off, when we asked him for ketchup. Actually Ran.. the food was not a full course meal. Sausage in the Rigatoni was salty. Meal came with no sides or bread. Double crab cake came with tatter tots no veggies. Chef should be ashamed of himself for letting this come out of his kitchen. For the price at this restaurant the seats should not look like this. I do recommend the nachos we're amazing the rest. S.M.H...

Mike Loewenthal: Always a wonderful meal and great service. Excellent late night menu with entrees available instead of typical deep fried bar food.

Emily Smith: Wonderful experience here! We had a large party and there were very accommodating. The no kick kentucky mule was delicious and the steak was phenomenal. Awesome server and great atmosphere. Check it out!

Safiya Parker: Had a reservation Thursday at 3p before an event at the arena. The service was quick since we got there before most of the crowd. The food was okay and got the job done.

Birch & Barley: what do users think?


Jade Stylistics: This place was absolutely perfect! Came here for my SO birthday and everything was fantastic. The prefix menu was exactly what I was looking for. Each dish was delicious and well thought out with the beer pairing menu. There were some dishes that tempted me to visit from NY more often. Romantic atmosphere and very attentive service. Would absolutely visit again if in DC.

Manuel Cruz: What's good? The brunch ... The chicken & waffle was excellent! Not too sweet. The devil eggs were tasty. The drinks were good. I think the brunch was moderately expensive for the portions. $15 for two alcoholic drinks when ordering an entree is not an amazing deal but not bad. I wish the devil eggs appetizer came with more than 2.

Alison Warth: Great restaurant! The oysters are AMAZING - definitely worth the money to get for a starter. The birch burger was delicious and came with small crispy fries. The “Crispy Hen of the Woods” was an interesting appetizer but not anything special. It’s basically just a very thinly sliced piece of chicken battered and fried. The garlic butter that comes WITH the crispy chicken is great with the bread though! Service was friendly and fast.

Ashlina Chin: I loved this place when I came here with my sister and friend. We had so much fun trying a ton of different beers and ate amazing food. The pictures are pretty outdated, but I will definitely be returning soon!

Alice Koerner: Great food and staff. Adorable assistant waitstaff brought out unexpected appetizers with bright fresh flavors. Nicely adorned petite filet and fantastically dressed mushroom sauté. Nice Gluten free menu selections, bread substitutions, and accompanying beer options!

J Rose: The food is cool. Chicken and waffle sandwich is good, but steak and tot hash is just OK, a Sunday healthy option. The brunch donuts are a little dry for my taste, not very moist. Bloody Marys are cool, but I've had better, but that sweater weather was delicious. Service child have been better. We asked for syrup, coffee, and to cook the eggs harder, and the waitress asked that we"remind" her of our request. Pretty much we should do her job for her.

Chris Taylor: They have a great beer selection, a decent cocktail menu, and some pretty cool decor. There is plenty to share and enjoy. The menu isn't very large but everything we had was delicious. It's a well known establishment that has earned it's place as DC mainstay.

Heysteve: Top notch! Food was excellent and the beer menu was extensive. I am a big beer nut and they had beers I never heard of. We were recommended to this place and it was our first stop after checking into our hotel. Our waitress Emma was not only delightful but helpful in picking out beers to go with our food. This will be a must anytime we come back.

Paul Krzych: Not only is this DC's premier destination for delicious craft beer but the food is top notch, too. Check out my photo of pastrami hash and sunny side up eggs. It was even better than it looks.

Haru: The food and service here was incredible! The brunch menu was delicious, and food came out very quickly. Would recommend to anyone!

Old Ebbitt Grill: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sequoia DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fiola Mare: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Occidental: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Syerra Carigo: My husband and I came here for our Valentine’s Day dinner and we were pleasantly surprised! The food here is so delicious! I can’t believe I never stopped in this restaurant before! The spinach dip was amazing! Like we were (shamefully) scraping the plate 😂😂🤦🏾‍♀️ The steaks, equally delicious and cooked perfectly! It was extremely busy, but our waiter remained attentive and served us pretty quickly considering how crazy it was. I’m definitely coming back to this restaurant for dinner again. Very, very good!

Edward Parsons: This was my first time visiting the CH&B and it was worth it. I sat at the bar and the service was better that sitting at a table. The bartender was knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. Do not let the prices scare you away. My meal was worth every penny.

Safiya Parker: Went here for a birthday celebration. It served about 20 people at one time. Service was as good as it could be serving a number like this. The cornbread skillet was delicious. Everyone reaved about the lamb. I got the burger which was filling. I would return to try this place again.

Adrian Alonso: Very good steaks particularly the bone-in rib eye. Loved the corn bread. The cheesecake was a bit too sweet to my liking. The staff was professional and friendly. Definitely a place I'd come back to for dinner when in Washington.

Mischa: Very nice place with very nice and classic vintage decor, as well as nice food and a few nice house-made beers, but the hamburger was much too expensive in my opinion. Otherwise, all else was great!

Mary Martinez: New from LA and attended a lunch here. Holy moly how can I snag April for my company’s customer service role?! What a server! Great personality, recommendations and a little holiday humor to compliment the meal. The citrus salmon was yummy. I will be back! Check out the holiday decor pic ❤️

Danny Mike: One of the best steakhouses in town. The food: Me and my wife had a New York and a Sirloin stakes with baked potato and mashed potatoes as sides. The meat was medium done and it was very very very succulent and tender and delicious 😋 I highly recommend this place. Bonus: We've received an on-the-house special cornbread kinda pie, which was interestingly delicious The place: Atmosphere was also intimate and not at all crowded (Monday evening) The staff: Our server, Francesca, was spot on with the recommendations, and helping us with what we needed throughout our dinner.

Julius Goros: Hands down had a wonderful experience dining in. We had Lauren as our waiter she was absolutely fantastic.. thank you for such a nice evening making it special for me and my lady. We had the calamari, porterhouse steak and the ribeye.. all were amazing 👏 dinner was really so nice definitely enjoyed it and will be back next time visiting DC.

Edgar Jones: Worth every cent. The steak, the brews, and the ambiance! Had the 18oz BONE-IN RIBEYE black angus, steak butter.

Lincoln Ward: Great food and pretty good service. Great atmosphere.Wife found a piece of glass in her chicken parm sandwich. Manager on duty didn’t seem too concerned. Probably won’t be back.

Sandeep Wilkhu: Excellent experienceWe sat in the bar because we did not have reservations. But our waitress Addison was so very excellent she made it an excellent experience. I would go back to the bar seating.

Charli Knows How To Eat: A very good friend of mine treated me to this very fancy dining experience. It was so amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for special events or celebrations. It is quite expensive however the service is great and the food is even better. I convinced my date that I’d like my own steak however I did not know they give you such large portions which is a first to see in a upscale restaurant like this. Nonetheless it was so tender and evenly cooked I ate every single piece !

raymond burgos: The service and hospitality are on par with the best in the world with amiable and capable staff. The presentation and food are excellent. The decor is well-suited to a high-end establishment and will make you break into a smile as soon as you walk in. The portions are good, not more significant portions - this is a tasting restaurant. Quality over quantity!

Kyana Shelton: Ambiance was stunning. Very classy and modern I love the simplicity of the place. Valet is cash only! Bread for the table was delicious. I ordered the shrimp scampi and my boyfriend ordered the chicken parmesan both a 10/10. My shrimp scampi was a small portion but besides that I had no complaints and actually left feeling pretty full. Can't remember the name of the wine I had but I believe our waiter said it had a hint of oyster. Overall, amazing experience with a sophisticated look I will be back!

Des KF: My boyfriend and I had reservations for this restaurant for my birthday. When we arrived we walked in and was greeted by the hostess and she sat us. The tables were super close to one another which was the only downfall. Tim was our waiter and he was so nice and attentive. We started with drinks and I got the Spritz and Giggles, it was weak but it was tasty. For my entrée I got the king crab with squid ink pasta and that was good. My boyfriend got the shrimp scampi pasta and he really enjoyed it. Tim gave us a cheesecake because we waited for a while to get drinks and that was so nice and it was so tasty. I also slid in that it was my birthday and he gave me a small, cute dessert to sing happy birthday. I really enjoyed my time, the ambiance was great and so was the food and service.

Lin Dinh: dim, upbeat ambiance with upscale cocktails— perfect spot for a bourgeois night out. plates were tapas size but the perfect portions. the mushroom pizza was by far the best pizza I’ve ever had. the short ribs were also superb. love it here!

MADDART: It was my first time dining here. I ordered a New York strip which was about 16 ounces.(a lot bigger than I expected from an upscale restaurant. It was cooked perfectly and had lots of flavor. The server was a bit forgetful about a couple requests I had made for pepper and silverware. I had to ask several times. Other than that the setting was great and I enjoyed my time there.

H. Ibdah: Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere. We went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The waiter was theatrically impressive. The food was outstanding. We tried many dishes, I only took a photo of the main courses. I highly recommend the octopus for a starter. For the main we had the lobster pasta, meatballs, steak and side dishes. Great for romantic dinners and for outing with friends.

john Dickerson: Reservation required, proof of covid vaccination with ID valet available $20. Service was outstanding John was our waiter, and he did a great job everything was swift and on time. The food was delicious, for appetizers we Truffled Garlic Bread Parmigiano-reggiano, 1/2 dozen half Shell oyster, truffle and parmesan cheese pizza, Big Eye Tuna Bruschetta Basil Aioli garlic toast, the main was Lobster Fra DiavolobCalabrian chili & tomato and Short Rib Bolognese Pappardelle, Rosemary. For dessert we had Tiramisu Whipped mascarpone & coffee.

Imani: The decor was nice. We liked our dishes but were not a fan of how soft the meatballs were. The plates were also small. We started off with a spritz for our drinks but sent it back because it was very sweet. We ordered a Paloma instead which was very delicious. The reasons for the star decrease was the hostess. We asked if we could move our table and she tried to explain the seating arrangements but made a condescending remark by saying “does that make sense” with a slight attitude which was very noticeable by the both of us.

Mastro's Steakhouse: what do users think?


John Darden: The steaks were cooked just right. Our waiter was polite and make our evening more enjoyable. The lobster mash potatoes had plenty of lobster meat; however, it was oily. If you like lemon drops then you should definitely try theirs because of the taste and presentation. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were huge. We had added crab meat to one of the steaks; however, we felt as though the restaurant could have included more meat relative to the cost of the dish but it was good. You can pay your bill using your phone. That was a nice touch (no need to wait for someone to come back to you) We plan on coming back.

Jaela Ford: This review is strictly for the waitress named Nicole. We would have given 5 stars if she did not taint our experience in the beginning. We were told by the hostess that she would be our “wonderful” waitress. She also came over to bring us menus and ask our water preference as if she was our waitress. However, for some odd reason the waiter was switched. When she was acting as our waitress, she was extremely short when answering our questions & seemed as though she did not want to be bothered. She also never introduced herself. We had to ask our new waiter for her name. There was absolutely nothing positive about her. It was as if she had pre judged us just because we were a table of young black women. Thankfully, our new waiter Phillip came over and saved the night. He was super welcoming and helpful. He answered all of our questions with a smile. His customer service was top tier! The drinks and food were also amazing! Thank you Phillip!

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

Jennifer Driggers Driggers Group Real Estate: Our family ate here for New Year's Eve 2021 on our trip to D.C. We thoroughly enjoyed the food the atmosphere and the service. The Wagyu steak was definitely worth the money. The lobster mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes were great along with the Bacon and sau'teed shrimp appetizers. For desert definitely must try the warm butter cake. Wish we had a Mastro's closer to home. We will definitely go back!!
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. Your satisfaction is our priority, and as affirmed by your review, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. We sure hope to see you again soon!

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

Michaela: Service is the strongest aspect of this fine dining experience. We reserved a private room for a birthday party, the ambiance was very nice, but the fees are a bit much. The birthday girl had a glorious seafood tower, that came out in a cloud of fog. Great insta moment!I ordered a medium porterhouse that was over cooked, I had to send it back but the waiter was great about getting me a new steak. I will say, I prefer Morton's porterhouse. The star dish was the warm butter cake at the end of the meal. Do stop by and get that at a minimum.

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

D P: I had a blast at this place. DC establishment. It's hardly any parking but Madtro's does have valet service. In house music. The wait staff is like there and attentive. The food was good. Lobster Mac and cheese, swordfish, steak asparagus and shrimp scampi. All was so good. The drink list is extensive but good. The bourbon. Jet setter was a great choice. The dessert don't get me started on the seasonal butter cake 🍰. Bomb 💣💣. Go and enjoy this place it's definitely worth it. Dress nice. Don't go in there looking homely.

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

Renee M: Sooo...the wagyu steak was delicious and the seared scallops were the BEST I have ever had! The sear on both dishes was perfect, the flavors were on point, and the meat melted in my mouth like butter! The drinks were CRAZY good, like strong, but made with appreciation for the full flavor profile vs just the liquor. Our server, Rice, aka the Tony Baker look a like was on it. He was very attentive and gave us great suggestions. We have 4 sides, 2 were bomb and 2 were not. The roasted brussels a sprouts and the cream spinach were tasty. The cream corn was gross and the lobster mac was under whelming. For $40 a side I would like more flavor. The atmosphere was cool. The live singer was entertaining and awkward. I would go back just to chill at the bar.
Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It means so much when our customers share their experiences. We are glad we were able to meet your expectations! We hope to see you again soon!

Charlie Palmer Steak: what do users think?


Swastika Nohara: Great fillet mignon center steak! Awesome oyster, so fresh and I particularly love the sour red sauce that comes with it. I think it is tomato based. We asked for medium for the new york stripe but it was a bit too dry. Asparagus was splendid, perfectly cooked. Atmosphere was nice too.

Michael Garcia: I decided to try CPSH and to my delight it was amazing! The staff truly make the experience memorable. You must try their trio crème brûlée ExceptionalOhhhhhh and the French onion soup…… on point

Adrian Nagle: Excellent meal, excellent service, and friendly staff. My party visited Charlie Palmer Steakhouse in D.C. as a celebration during our trip and late birthday for my daughter since missing it last year during covid. Being visitors to D.C., we were not sure what to expect or where to go for a celebration dinner. We were treated very well with friendly staff. Our waiter was patient with us to help us with the menu and style of service Charlie Palmer provides. We all ordered steaks which were cooked to order with several sides we all shared. Desserts were awesome and were a nice unsual splurge for us. Overall, we had an excellent time and really felt great after our dinner. To top off our evening, we were treated to a special location to view the Capitol and Mall. We left the restaurant impressed and very happy we visited. We highly recommend Charlie Palmer Steakhouse in D.C.

Trevor John: Very non-assuming venue within a minutes walk of the Capital. Good food vibes and aperitif menu. Glad I stopped in and had dinner.

Freddy Vega: REFUSED SERVICE, STAY AWAY. If I could give 0 stars I would. These folks do not deserve any star! While visiting DC and after an exhausting walk through the L.O.C. at 3:25 PM on Apr 27th we (my wife and two kids) stopped by this place to enjoy some succulent steaks on our way back to our parked car. The experience went something like this: As soon as we entered there is a reception desk to the right so we went to it. There were two females and one male behind this desk. The male asks me: "May I help you?" - ??? May I help you? what does that even mean? I'm at a restaurant we want to eat, right? Either way, I said (sounding a little confused by the questions I'm sure) "This is a restaurant right? We want to eat." he then asks me if I have a reservation, I said no. He typed something into the computer and then one of the females said, the restaurant is closed. My wife and I looked at each other and left. I took this picture on the way out to remind me to write about this on social media. WE WERE REFUSED SERVICE for some reason unknown to us. Could have been that we had a 8 month old and a 5 year old with us? I don't know the reason, but these folks in the front desk were insensitive, unprofessional and just down right rude. All done in a passive aggressive way so very covert. If you are a family save your time as you are probably not wanted here.

Ryan Rhodes: Classic steakhouse; menu is small, but everything is delicious. The service could be more attentive - they may be short staffed due to the pandemic. The burger and steak are good portion sizes for lunch.

Robert F Jr.: Amazing food and service. Excellent atmosphere. Definitely will return

Laura Molinares: One of my favorite spots in DC! The team at Charlie Palmer is always so welcoming. The manager, Mike, is always friendly and accommodating with reservations and private events. The team at the bar is so professional and kind, I can always count on Lamar to create amazing drinks and he always has incredible new suggestions. Danny, Lewis and Alfredo are always at the bar with a warm smile and providing exceptional customer service. The waiters/waitresses and hostesses are always on top of their game too! There are many restaurants in the DMV, but Charlie Palmer has a was of making you feel at home while also providing an exceptional dining experience with delicious foods and drinks and the best customer service. Definitely recommend checking them out!

Krissy Coles: I love this restaurant and the staff was great. This wasn't my first time here, and I love coming here. However, this was my first time ordering the crab cake. I have never been so disappointed in my life. As a Maryland native, crabs and crab cakes are something you learn how to make at 9 years old and can tell the difference between lump and backfin. As soon as the sat the plate down on the table, I knew this was not a real crab cake. You saw no lump crab meat at all. It looked burnt at the top, and the covered it with garnish. This was the worse crab cake I've ever had in my life. It tasted like someone ethnic grandma that never had on decided to add every spice in the cabinet to try and make some leftovers the own together in the shape of a patty taste good. There was no crab meat inside and looked like they added carrots and peppers which is an abomination. They need to immediately take this off the menu. I was ready to go in the kitchen and fire the chef myself. DO NOT order the crab cake absolutely awful. The lobster corn dogs were good though.

Deborah Whaley: Enjoyed my birthday dinner, food is awesome, waiters waitresses and servers were all very polite and attentive. Service was excellent!!

SUCCOTASH: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Hamilton: what do users think?


Anny Khaysavang: We made reservations at 6pm and were sat down right away upon arrival. Food was delicious and all came out quick! The Mac and cheese was a little cold but other than that, all of the dishes were 5/5. On top of the fast service, our server Courtney was super nice and knowledgeable of everything on the menu. Loved our server and the food! Highly recommend as a dinner spot for friends and family!

DJ G: I have nothing but positive things to say about my most recent dining experience at The Hamilton. Every member of the staff was as courteous and classy as the next. The food was prepared exactly as my dinner partner and I requested. The service was prompt and each course evenly spaced. As an added bonus, when I requested coffee with dessert, not only did we receive a French press with three cups' worth of the stuff, but it was gratis! It was truly the perfect way to start our night. This was not my first time at The Hamilton, but it was my first time since the madness of the pandemic. It will not be my last.
Response: Thank you so much!

Tina M: A little delayed getting seated as someone came in the middle of our vaccine cards getting checked, and they helped them first. Once seated was helped fairly quickly. The food - impeccable. The Best beef stroganoff I've ever had! My partner had sushi; he couldn't stop talking about. Decor was geared towards a manly hunting vibe. The lamps on the table gave a nice intimate touch. I will DEFINITELY return.

Joyful Biodun: Beautiful building! The atmosphere is so soothing and welcoming! You want to sit there forever. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional, the hostess and host were incredible and amazing. I had a great time dining here for lunch with work colleagues.
Response: Thank you so much!

Natalie Caldwell: Massive restaurant. Very attentive and kind management and wait staff. We had the single banana bread loaf with the whipped honey butter - don’t skip this. It’s awesome. The fried chicken sandwich was fantastic especially with the extra mumbo sauce (the two pieces of chicken weren’t overly crispy but I imagine because of the extra sauce). The truffle rosemary fries were great, but nothing there wasn’t enough “stick” for the rosemary and pecorino cheese to stick to them which was frustrating. Otherwise, great meal. Excited to go back.
Response: Thank you, Natalie!

Madeline Maldonado: The Hamilton is located by the White House. It serves American food. The food was really delicious and the dessert did not disappoint. We didn't have reservations but were seated very quickly. It has a huge seating. Server was very kind and polite and made tasty recommendations when I asked. Highly recommended!!!
Response: Thank you, Madeline!

Julian Fishov: Customer service here is excellent. The decor does feel like you're in some 1800s hunting lodge with all the pictures of the ducks and heavy wood. But the food here is delicious. Calamari was crispy and well flavored, the sweet and spicy dip paired well. Highly recommend the smokehouse brisket sandwich with cabbage. Very juicy brisket, excellent flavor. Fries are ok, could have been better.

P. B.: Great atmosphere. Friendly attentive staff. Prompt service and tasty food.When you see a restaurant attract children dining out with their parents, business dinner groups, single diners and couples you know its good quality. all overseen by the pleasant Irishman John Grace. Pictured is the tasty Hamilton Burger.
Response: Thank you!

Denise Primus: Service was amazing. Servers were very attentive even thpugh the place was packed. Food was delicious. Must try the boozy milkshakes. Carrot cake was really good..it was a busy night but they accommodated our party of 25.

Jessa 4Peace: This was my first time at The Hamilton Live. Went to see a Led Zeppelin cover band. The venue is easy to find and clean. Quite a pleasant small venue for a more intimate show. There were 2 bars and my cocktails were good...a bit pricey but good. The restrooms were clean and the COVID vaccine screening process was quick and thorough. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely see a show there again!

The Pig: what do users think?


Sam M: One of My favorite BBQ restaurants in DC. I visited this place several times and really had a great experience. This place could get pretty busy during the weekend dinner service, so I would definitely recommend making a reservation ahead of time. Inside of the restaurant was relatively clean and had enough seating for big groups. Pretty much all the dishes I tried here were delicious, but my favorite was pork chops and smoked ribs. They also have an extensive drink and dessert menu. I really loved their strawberry shortcake. It literally melts in your mouth. Servers were very friendly and attentive during the whole dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant for some good BBQ!

Lord Edwin Carreon: I really like The Pig. I’ve been 3 times (once pre-COVID-19 Pandemic and twice in the Pandemic) and have consistently enjoyed my experience. At its core, The Pig is a barbecue joint. It does offer some upscale and fancier items, which I like. The hi-low effect is well done at The Pig. The dining room is dimly lit and cozy with its wood booths and industrial finishes. The addition of the patio offers a more casual outdoor experience. Some of my favorite items include their St. Louis Smoked Ribs and Brisket Ragu. The ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and perfectly smoked and sauced. Honestly, the side dishes are nice accompaniments, but don’t necessarily augment the dish. The Brisket Ragu is a perfect hi-low dish offering tender chunks of smoked brisket in a delicate, unctuous tomato and red wine sauce that beautifully coats chewy tagliatelle pasta. My favorite item on the menu is the Heritage Shank. (“12-hour confit pork shank, Yunnan potato puree, leafy spinach, roasted garlic and ginger gastric [sic].”) It’s a special dish that offers a generous portion of tender and juicy pork whose taste is amplified by the side dishes. The ginger gastrique is exceptional and balances the fatty richness of the pork. I will say, like many restaurants after these past two years, The Pig’s menu has shrunk. I really miss some of their signature items, like their bone marrow appetizer. They were unique, exceptionally delicious dishes that should return. Moreover, the portion sizes have definitely gotten smaller. Lastly, service 2/3 of the times I’ve been have been stellar, with attentive and kind wait staff. The other time I’ve been, our server was nice enough, but forgot several things we asked for (an alteration to a dish, ordering another drink, and bringing us more napkins).

Beverlyn Salva: Okay, here me out. If you or your partner haven’t eaten anything since breakfast and HAS been walking around DC ALL day and you’re looking for some food to eat? I’d recommend the Pig! My boyfriend and I have made a list of food places to go before going on our trip and so we can just pick and go.They have some great appetizers and entrees, drinks are delish, dessert is also delish… but what really amazed me is our server Kima. She was super knowledgeable, blissful, great personality and her customer service is on point. That’s what I usually look for when eating out. We love to eat but we also like to know what the front of house can do to make our dining experience better. :) Thank you Kima and the Pig (DC).

Anna: It's simply ok BBQ place. We tried the chicken and the BBQ platter - especially the second one was a good idea to see different options.

Joel Pagett: I enjoyed a fantastic meal in The Pig, and I would have no hesitation recommending it to others. The Bao Buns to start were incredible, and the Pork Shoulder steak was sensational as well. Certainly worth a visit if you’re in Washington and looking for a delicious dinner.

Rae Elle: The saddest excuse for bbq I've ever seen. My "smoked brisket" was neither smoked nor fresh. The server said the cornbread was great and fresh. Two big lies. Suffice to say I'll never return. My meal was so upsettingly disgusting I only took one bite. Other people at my table tried it too and confirmed it was rubbish on a plate.

Chrissy Hernandez: The food here was amazing...we had a lil but if everything. They could use more variety in the drinks menu but not a big deal. 2 must haves, the sticky wings and the cornbread!!! The cornbread is by far the best I've ever tasted!!!!

Ben Multak: Good flavors but not my favorite BBQ I’ve ever had. Federalist Pig has better BBQ but the ambiance of this place is much bette. Drinks were also very good and they are able to accommodate large groups.

Columbia City Bouquet: We come here every time we are in town. The cocktails are delicious. The food is super tasty. And we always have a blast with our waiters/bartenders- this time Michael was especially fun. Don’t go in thinking it’s going to be the best barbecue you’ve ever had straight from Austin, but it will surely be delicious. Eat the Brussels sprouts.

Tom P: I guess I'd call this place upscale BBQ. There's a medium sized dining room and a big bar. They have a huge bourbon and whiskey selection. We sat at the bar, and Mallory was super nice and gave us top notch service. We had the smoked ribs platter, and the smoked brisket platter. Both were delicious. The cheddar cornbread with honey butter was amazing, and the peach habanero BBQ sauce served with the brisket was insane. For the two of us, with no appetizers or alcoholic beverages, the check came to $60, so it's not cheap. In terms of quality, the food wasn't much better than a chain place, like Mission BBQ, but in terms of flavor and creativity, it's so much better. Would definitely go back. Parking in the area can be hard to find, especially on weekends. Reservations are highly recommended.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Charles Leftwich: My first visit to this establishment was a party of two for a special Valentine's Day Menu. The maitre d' was kind and had a full smile, she promptly asked if they could take our coats followed by a swift pass to our waiter for seating. The ambience is nice, an open dining room concept allowing you to view most of the dining room. The lights are dimmed and give a candlelight style vibe which was nice. Service for the table was spot on, the waiter was amazing, giving great wine recommendations and proper service the entire night. I started with the bang bang shrimp appetizer which was honestly, the best I've had (definitely better than Bonefish). The flavor was rich and texture was a bit more creamy with a larger shrimp size than most places serving the same app. The main course of Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass was cooked well, the firm texture of the fish went well with the sundried tomato risotto. The mac and cheese was lackluster, it had a great velvety cheese texture but lacked the sharpness I think defines a "good" mac. The cheeses chosen were too mild in my opinion. The creamed spinach was good. The Lemon Crunch Cake dessert was darn tasty, not too acidic or lemony but well balanced, not a great deal of crunch but the flavors coming from the dish outshine the need for "crunch". Great overall experience, I would recommend going when it is not so crowded to truly enjoy your experience (some tables may be a bit close to other guest, but this is to be expected during a holiday/high volume day)

Gerald Brown: Our waiter was fantastic and the food was delicious and visually appealing. We had Caesar Salad, Chicken Noodle Soup, a Crab Cale Sandwich with fries and onion rings (fantastic!!!), Filet Mignon and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Very satisfying meal.

Jennifer Garrett: The sea bass here is the best I have ever had!! It melts in your mouth! Nice, romantic atmosphere with great service

Binky's Vapes & CBD Warrior: Yes yes yes, I love lamb and this dish was excellent. I had cream of spinach with this that I used as a dip the next day. It was more than I could eat at one setting. We were vendors at one of their social events, very friendly, food excellent and atmosphere is great. I would recommend and I will be back. The appetizer portions are just right for me.

Reka Davis: This place is amazing. Our server Timothy was so friendly and made sure we were well taken care of. And the FOOD!! When I say melt in your mouth, please believe me. Highly recommend. (We had a Groupon offer as well)

ALEXXXANDRIA 1313: NICE DIM LIT SPOT. I CAME IN TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY WITH A COWORKER AND I REALLY ENJOYED MYSELF. OUR WAITER “WILL” WAS BEYOND AMAZING. HE WAS SO FUNNY AND WE DIDN’T HAVE TO WAIT LONG FOR ANYTHING. SUPER ATTENTIVE AND GOOD LOOKING TOO LOL! WILL TOLD US IT WAS HIS FIRST DAY BUT HE COULD’VE FOOLED ME!!! HE WAS GREAT AND SO WAS MY MEAL. I ENJOYED 2 ORDERS OF THE CHILLED LOBSTER, THE BONE-IN RIB EYE WITH A SIDE OF BROCCOLINI AND CALAMARI. EVERYTHING WAS FANTASTIC. NEXT TIME I WANT TO SIT IN THE BAR AREA. SEEMS PRETTY LIVELY WHEN ITS PACKED

Renita Lake: I knew it would be good, but HERMAGERD! The steak was like butta. I got the steak and cake (fancy surf and turf). It was a steak and a crab cake. The cake had too kuch filler and not enough Old Bay, in my opinionation, but otherwise delicious. The wine was fab-o, and our waiter was wonderful, knowledgeable, and had a great wit and sense of humor. Imma go back~

Brittany Sample: From placing the reservation on the phone for our party, to the customer service in person, I have nothing but great things to say about this place. The food is phenomenal and very tasty. The wait staff and all workers we encountered went above and beyond. Well worth the price.
Response: Thank you Brittany!!!

Oil Suebsiri T.: Premium steak with long history. Beef quality is superb but the service was not impressive.

Susie Lim: The steak salad is a must try - gave me a new meaning of this menu after trying it at BV Washington DC. My rating is based on this menu only - value for money and my desire to return again. I am overlooking the busy servers service.

Keysmash: Delicious food, and the staff are smart! Staff here can remember large orders with many alterations, and the food still comes out fast. I wish they had more non-alcoholic drink options, though. Also, the vibes in here are great! Lovely decor, low lighting is good for a date. Try the 5$ take-home dinners! You can get your parking ticket validated here, there is a direct elevator entrance from the parking garage. Highly recommended!
Response: We are proud to hear that you had an overall enjoyable experience. We look forward to your next visit!

Lani: I ordered the lobster carbonara… it’s something I’ve ordered it a few times at the location in a different city. This first time ordering here. The pasta sauce has a very chalky, bitter taste, the lobster was chewy and flavorless and there was not the same amount of bacon. It just didn’t taste as good unfortunately.
Response: We aim to exceed expectations every time, and we regret very much that we didn't do so in this case, Lani. We will be passing this feedback along directly, and we would like to connect with you personally to get more details about your experience. Please share your contact information at https://www.maggianos.com/contact so we can reach out. Thank you.

Richard Lapaglia: Some of the worst food I have ever had! I don’t know how you screw up something as simple as a baked penne. But they figured it out. The sauce was grossly sweet and otherwise unseasoned. There were only a few little fragments of Italian sausage and barely an cheese. Plus it took over an hour for delivery. Stay away. Enclosed is a photo of this sad sad meal.
Response: We are sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your visit. We would appreciate more details about your overall experience. Please share them at www.maggianos.com/contact so our teams may follow up. Thank you!

Markita Murray: The food here is DELICIOUS!!!! We enjoyed our first time here our waitress was a doll. She was very friendly and informative because it was our first time. We will be back

Joshua WT: Ricardo the Server is one of reasons you should visit Maggiano’s aside from the most amazing entrées. His customer service is exceptional, Impressive, and most importantly genuine! As the district Manager of T-Mobile our sales Team can learn a lot from him….
Response: We are proud to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, Joshua!

T. D.: Though they didn’t have neither soup nor calamari (oh, my☹️), we were very pleased with the service and food (amount and quality) and went there twice. Food made deliciously and we enjoyed every bite of it! Thank you for amazing food and service

Edward Harris: My go to for a Great Time!! If you ever want great service, great food and good drinks... this is your go to. Management is totally engaged with customers. Food is always good and fresh. Always a great environment. Never too loud and even when its busy, you always feel attended to. Cash is one the best bartenders there. Highly recommended👍🏽

Symea Johnson: Busy holiday weekend but was able to make a last minute reservation for dinner. Greeted by a very friendly host and our server was awesome! The menu has changed due to COVID but our server was able to get the kitchen to recreate the Tuscan shrimp &chicken (my favorite) it was soo good; they still have the take home pasta entree for $5! Ice cold water, fresh hot bread and main dish was all great and all for good price

B.J. K.: Went to Maggianos to meet Santa Claus. What a fabulous experience!! Food was excellent (definitely for an adult palate) santa was spectacular but most of all, the restaurant was beautifully decorated. Definitely had that Christmas glowing spirit inside this beautifully holiday themed restaurant, nice picture spots inside the restaurant (Christmas tree, fireplace) and I can’t wait to go back. Gave me the warm fuzzy feeling. Five stars ⭐️

Surbhi Kanotra: Cash is a great bartender and the Happy Hour has great drinks and 2 flatbread options.

Unconventional Diner: what do users think?


Zeyu Hu: Went to Unconventional Diner for both brunch and dinner and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint at all. Brunch: Got three different items to share for brunch, and each was unique in its own way but complimented each other so well. The shrimp and grits were perfect. The BBQ shrimp had an amazing smokey smell which really made it stand out. The biscuits were also amazing, nice and crispy and the house made sausage was great. The blueberry pancakes were the fluffiest I’ve ever had, a great sweet treat to end the meal. Dinner: Came back for dinner a week later and it blew me out of the water again. As the name suggests, the menu has a large variety and when the waiter tells you you can’t go wrong with anything, they ain’t lying. We got such a variety of food - from French to southern, Chinese stir fry to Cuban. It just all works so well. Bottom line: A must visit if you are in DC. The best wait staff and service. But remember to book ahead!

Claire Mizutani: Went out to dinner with my family and a friend from school. Great food! I really enjoyed the mezze and the Mac n cheese. Speedy service and great labeling on the menu for those with dietary restrictions. I wish that the outdoor seating area had heaters but now that the weather is getting warmer that may be less of an issue

Christopher Guarin: Was in town to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival. We made a point to stop in for some brunch before walking all over town. We were definitely not disappointed. Everything we tried was delicious! From the drinks, to the Everything Lox, and Chicken and Waffles....every bite was amazing. We will be back for more on our next trip!

Eric Lee: Got the cheeseburger and fried chicken. Both were phenomenal. Simple dishes but everything was cooked and seasoned so well. Price for these dishes were affordable. Great vibe as well, pretty large space. Will be back to try more!

Queen Melissa: Wonderful for family outing , a date and friends brunch. Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness was good. The customer service and server was really nice. My kids loved everything and they are usually picky eaters. This was my first time eating shrimps and grits all I can say it was amazing. Overall,we were a satisfied family and will be back again.

Ben Multak: Unconventional diner dishes but delicious flavors. Everything I’ve tried here has hit and the restaurant itself is a well oiled machine. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area. Really enjoyed the Crab Fritters and Fried Chicken

Sirius Fidelity: This was one of my favorite food places on my trip. The place was a pretty good size, clean, and bright. There also appeared to be outside dining as well. I ordered the kid size portion of the Blueberry Lavender Pancakes as pictured, and the Shrimp and Grits. Nothing short of amazing. Prices were reasonable and the portion sizes good. I highly recommend this place.

Christal Young: I love a place that has vegan as well as non-vegan options. This place was so good, I came back two days in a row. Their kale nachos were just superb and their cauliflower salad with falafel was also delicious and filling. The colors and ambiance are also nicely done. There are several dining spaces, including indoor and outside seating, each with its own vibe.

ReCreate Artworks: I found this gem about a 20 minute walk north of the mall. I cannot recommend it enough. There was plenty of seats, the staff was quick and efficient, and the restaurant itself was stunning. It makes you feel luxurious without having the price tag that usually comes with it. It’s very affordable but the quality of food is beyond the price. I got a double shot of espresso and the Brussel Sprouts with Fried Egg. 10/10.

Chunhee Hong: We had buttermilk pancake, corned beef hash, cappuccino and rise & shine. All delicious! The customer service and server were really nice. Overall,we were satisfied and will be back again to try other menu!

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

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

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

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

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

Ed Tracy: Wow! First visit and it was quite memorable. Jambalaya entree Most Excellent. The chef worked some magic to get the best of the shrimp into the sauce. Butterflying the shrimp was also great for bit size. Brussels sprouts app, Most Excellent. Maybe best I've ever had. We got the bacon on the side. Crispy yet surrounded by soft blue cheese and a slightly sweet vinaigrette sauce. Vegetarian wife loved it too. Pumpkin ravioli were really good, a bit too sweet for my taste. Mash potatoes were good. Ask for table bread and butter. OMG, their house herb butter is fluffy and delicious. Also loved their custom concoction drinks. The Black Manhattan and the Maple Old Fashioned were smooth and delish! (the Maple OF is girl-friendly)

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.

Tran Kim-Senior: My husband and I came here with some friends before going to a show at the Kennedy Center. The food was good--he had rainbow trout and I had blackened salmon and our friends each had burgers. The ambiance is energetic and on the louder side which was fine for our purposes but if you're looking for a romantic, more quiet ambiance, I wouldn't recommend this spot. The bar menu looked good and varied though we're not big drinkers so we can't provide any feedback on the drinks. There was also a nice patio if you're looking for good outdoor seating.
