Blue Duck Tavern: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 :)

Kingbird: what do users think?


Alvaro H. Torres: Exceptional customer service. One of the best French toast I had. Luckily for me, I had two days to try as much breakfast meal. I highly recommend it and it exceeded my expectations. The price is high but you are paying for great quality. After your breakfast you can take a stroll at the water front. I think this is a great selection and you will not be disappointed.

Sydni Hagens: The waitstaff was lovely. Nothing bad to say there, but the afternoon tea left much to be desired. My friend and I have been to many teas around the world and always enjoy trying new ones. This is not an afternoon tea I would recommend to anyone else. The black tea was more gray (like a decaf twinings) and tasted like watery milk. The sandwiches were very basic (although they graciously accommodated a vegetarian request for one of us). The scone tasted like a blueberry muffin, and not like a scone at all. The crepe brûlée was watery and not brûlée’d. Ambiance in the restaurant was awkward and the tables and chairs reminded us of office furniture. The tea service looked like a child’s tea set. This is very overpriced for what it offered. Again, nothing against the staff, just not a good afternoon tea in our opinion. Others in the place raved about it, but we’ve just had so many wonderful afternoon teas, and this wasn’t one of them.

Adam Galazka: Tried the restaurant for a dinner one night and couple of breakfasts while staying at the watergate. Not quite a 5 star experience. For dinner the food was well seasoned but the temperature was luke warm. Not quite what we expected. Service was great. For breakfast, service was great and very fast but again latte was very luke warm. They made it up the 2nd time around. We will definitely come back at some point to give them another try.

Katie Cahill: Made a reservation for a large group (15) for lunch. What a disappointment. The waiter was the only positive part of the experience. Waited for more than an hour for our food, many of which were salads and soup of the day. The salads were wilted, the soup so salty it was nearly inedible, the burgers cooked to death (even though medium was ordered), and the salmon was marginal at best. Being practical, most of us made an attempt to finish our food as to not waste, but terrible. What was worse is the place was nearly empty with only a few other tables occupied. A waste of what was supposed to be a nice lunch at a historic venue.

Viviana Shanks: If you are staying at the Watergate (or just considering eating there) avoid at all costs, for breakfast or dinner. The restaurant looked nice and fancy, so we decided to give it a shot! What a disappointment. A HUGE comedy of errors. Our starter took 20min to arrive. Which ok is fine... they probably made it from scratch? We ordered the chicken (that would comes with purée) and scallops. It took 35 min after the starter for our main courses to arrive. Meaning, almost an hour after we ordered it! My chicken came with French fries, to which I was told that they ran out of purée, but no one thought it was wise to inform me before the meal arrived. - they tried to make it right by giving me ratatouille and broccoli. I started eating, my chicken was not baked, but yes boiled a couple or more days ago. They probably put it on the microwave as the chicken was stone cold on the inside. When I point that out, I’m told « they were probably waiting for the scallops to be ready » doesn’t excuse it. They took my chicken away for an extra 10min to warm it up. Same thing, still cold but I went with it. Our waiter took it out the bill, but the entire experience was miserable. Table next to us had a 21st birthday, and same, they almost all ordered the chicken too and they left the restaurant with their plates untouched. So my case was not isolated. To make the matter worse, the next morning we head there to have breakfast, we are rudely told that there is a 45min wait for breakfast. We look inside the restaurant and it’s half empty, and is a buffet. They apparently couldn’t manage to turn around the few tables they were seri I quickly enough. Pro tip, room service is way quicker. They should seriously think of changing chefs as I feel we were lied to. Would definitely stay back at the hotel but NOT go back to the restaurant.
Response: Dear Viviana, Reviews shared by our guests always provide us with magnificent value as they allow us to fully appreciate what guests most enjoyed and how an experience can be elevated even further. While we are happy to read that our dining room looked so inviting, we are sorry to learn of your delays in service. Our approach to a typical dinner service is to let each course settle while allowing our guests to visit with one another between the serving of courses. We appreciate that there is also value in understanding the desired pace of our guests and in this situation it appears that we did not do so. Your added comments regarding your meal leave us concerned and while we assure you that each meal is prepared to order, I would like to extend a more personal apology and I am hopeful that we might be able to connect with a call later in the week. As your time allows, I encourage you to email me at the address provided below, perhaps including a convenient time that I may be in touch and the best way to reach you. Once more, we thank you for your feedback and I look forward to speaking with you soon. All the best, Pascal Forotti Managing Director Pforotti@thewatergatehotel.com

DeMoN85 “DeMoN85”: As you can see from the pictures this is a very beautiful place to go. The food was freshly made and very delicious! Bar tender was friendly and attentive along with most of the staff. The reason for the three stars was the snobby inattentive waiter. He didn't pay attention to our party when we asked him to keep checks separately. Then proceeded to tell us at the end that he would not do that for us an could only take up to 4 different payments. We had a party of 12 eating there an after getting the manager involved he did his best to accommodate us as we previously requested. However this was not the only reason for this rating. The restaurant was not busy yet the waiter felt the need to take a table away from where we were sitting while we were eating. He was also quite rude to us when asking if we wanted dessert stating "the kitchen is closing so if you're going to want dessert you better get it now!" If we minus the snobby attitude of that waiter everything else was great!
Response: Dear James, Our team is always appreciative of guest reviews as they allow us the opportunity to learn what guests most loved about their dining experience and where there may be opportunity to elevate the experience even further. While we are pleased that the talents of our culinary team captivated your attention, we regret that other aspects of your visit did not shine as brightly. Should your time allow, I would like to extend a more personal apology, perhaps with a telephone call. I am also hopeful that during that conversation I can learn more about your visit so that we can ensure future guests are not left to form similar impressions. On behalf of all of us at Kingbird, we so enjoyed hosting you and we look forward to doing so again in the weeks and months ahead. Before that though, I invite you to reach out to me with an ideal time that I can be in touch, using the email address provided below. Warm Regards, Sami Katrib Director of Food & Beverage skatrib@thewatergatehotel.com

Alex Holston: The best place to have dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. I go back all the time. The cocktails are my favorite part, as well as the priced fix menu.
Response: Dear Alex, Our Prix-Fixe dinner menu is a worthwhile experience for those visiting The Kennedy Center and we are thrilled to read that your experience was so perfectly orchestrated. On behalf of all of us, including our talented mixologists who have created an innovative cocktail menu, we thank you once more and we invite you to hurry back just as soon as you can. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

Jessica M: Excellent dinner here, worth a try. Came to eat with a couple of friends before a show at the Kennedy Center. Wait staff was attentive, engaging, and helpful, we had plenty of time to eat 3 courses and get to our show. Not only was the food delicious, but the price was reasonable for what was served. Among us we had the pork belly, rack of lamb, and rack of pork. I appreciated the manager on duty, Hope, taking the time to talk to us about the hotel's transformation and willingness to entertain our questions. I will definitely return very soon! Oh, and if you're interested in non-alcoholic drinks, I recommend "Cinnamon", a refreshing cinnamon tea concoction! I'll need to ask for the recipe!
Response: Dear Jessica, Being so close to The Kennedy Center, we have the delight in welcoming many pre-theatre guests and we thank you and your friends for allowing us to acquaint you with Kingbird. Our culinary team is thrilled that you enjoyed each of your courses and we are elated to read that Hope and the service team took such great care of you. Once more, it was a pleasure to host you and we trust that you will be back for another “Cinnamon” and dinner one day soon. Warm Regards, Kingbird at The Watergate

mingyue Liu: I’m from Boston. I checked online and try to find a good place to eat breakfast. And I’m kinda disappointed because the food was less and cold. And didn’t filled up when the tray was empty. The tea and coffee u need ask for. This buffet cost 25/per person and will charge 18% tips. I didn’t feel happy about that. Not good breakfast choice.
Response: Dear mingyue Liu, Warm greetings from Kingbird. It was a pleasure to have you join us and we appreciate you passing along your comments. Our new Executive Chef, Sebastien Giannini, is in the process of crafting new menus for each of our meal periods and the valuable feedback highlighted within your review will certainly be shared with him. We apologize if your experience fell short of delighting and we hope that we might one day see you again so that you can explore the new breakfast dishes. Until then. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

TRS- Private: It’s hard to write the review for this place. The service was not bad, in fact the team were all extremely professional and very pleasant. However, it was tediously slow, despite an abundance of staff. It’s almost like there are too many people working here, I’ve seen Denny’s wait staff handle 10 times the number of customers and do so 10 times more efficiently. It is a shame because it does detract from the experience. It’s just docile here. Like many of the other reviews about the food, Ours was excellent but the portions were pitifully small. I happen to like small portions but here they have taken the philosophy to a ludicrous level. And given the prices, it’s hard to leave satisfied. As I say, it’s hard to write this review without being influenced by all the factors. The food is good, you just have to order a little more than you normally would, the service is good, if you are patient and the ambiance is lovely. I would certainly recommend this place, but with strong caveats of these factors. If wonky management would take note of the consistent reviews of this nature and just make things a little more snappy and up the portion sizes by a few percentage points. Then Kingbird would be a top venue in Washington which definitely needs more options like this, especially over in this part of town.
Response: Greetings, It was a pleasure to have you join us and we thank you for sharing your thoughtful and thorough review. On behalf of all of us at Kingbird, we want you to be assured that details like those you have written do provide us with great value as it’s always helpful to gain insight as to what guests most enjoyed and how the experience can be further enhanced. We hope you can accept our apologies for any service delays and have trust in knowing that your feedback will be shared with our culinary team. Our Kingbird team appreciates your confidence and any recommendations you might pass along and we look forward to fully impressing the next time you visit. All the best, Kingbird at The Watergate Hotel

Le Diplomate: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teddy & The Bully Bar: what do users think?


Liz R: Finally made it for brunch here. I've been wanting to check it out for a while. More of a fine dining experience. Less laid back. Appears that customer service is prized very high here. Food was good - smaller servings than necessary. Nice ambience.
Response: Hello Liz, Thank you very much for the detailed review. We look forward to seeing you again. Appreciatively, Alan

Kathy Moore: Fantastic service and a nicely designed setting made our visit memorable. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food was delicious and beautifully pretended. Would like to see more appetizers that are less like side dishes you'd have with dinner. The ladies bathroom gave me a couple of chuckles.

Julleny Wain: Food was really good but pricey. They do have unlimited mimosas if you do the all you can eat which is $50 per person. The portions as small buy again its all you can eat. The chicken and waffles was amazing, they have a waffles station, omelet station.

Alita brown: I came here for the Christmas dinner. I’m giving it a 3 because the service was good. Unfortunately the food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. $70 buffet style. The meat was absolutely dry and tasteless. I tried both the salmon and chicken , but couldn’t bare to eat either. The sides were good but not worth $70. I don’t think I’ll ever have this type of dining experience over the holidays. I will cook my own.
Response: Hello Alita, My sincere apologies on your experience with us on Christmas Day, I wanted to learn more if you could please send me an email at Justin@prghospitality.com I would most diffidently like to invite you back in. Thank you for your feedback and for helping us improve. Thanks

Hyun Kwak: I had a burger with fries along with sparkling water. the quality of service was ok. the burger was great but the fries were not that fresh. I still give them 4 stars. they have a happy hour menu, but the prices were not too different from the full menu. so, please check both menus even if you go there during their HH. happy dining! :)
Response: Hello Hyun, we will work on making sure our fries are fresh and hot. I apologize and hope to see you again. Be Well, Alan

Amy Rosenquist: The food at this place was absolutely delicious! We ordered an omelet, avocado toast, chicken & waffles, and chocolate chip pancake. The mimosas are small but they have a “bottomless” option if you’re looking to have a goooooood time ;) We sat outside and the umbrellas didn’t do much while the sun was still rising, but once it was overhead it was much shadier!

M B: Bottomless brunch offered a variety of foods and consistent pours throughout the duration of our 2-hr table reservation. Some dishes were less impressive than others, but the pricing and overall experience were unbeatable.
Response: Hello MB Thank you for the great review. We appreciate your business. Kindly, Alan Owner

Jason Wallach: Went there for lunch. Excellent food, but a little slow on the delivery if you are trying to grab a "quick" bite, so be sure to tell the staff if you need speedy food delivery. I ordered the pumpkin soup to start, and it was smooth, rich, and sweet with a dollop of olive oil ricotta that added a fantastic touch of savory saltiness. The portion size was not very large, but the soup was very good. For my lunch entree, I ordered the mushroom risotto. Although the portion size was not large, the risotto was exceptional and very filling. It had blue cheese crumbles all over it, some other cheeses that left strings hanging from my chin, and something like honey that added some sweetness to everything. I cannot wait to return for happy hour or dinner to try their cocktails.
Response: Hello Jason, We thank you for your review. We will work harder at getting the food out to our customers as expeditiously as we can. Appreciatively, Alan Owner Teddy & The Bully Bar

Christopher Kenneth Young Jr: Good service. Thank you Olivia. Food could’ve tasted better for brunch. Lots of small portions during brunch, if the portions were larger, we would’ve ordered less plates. I don’t recommend going for brunch with parties more than six - can be very hectic. If you want an unlimited brunch, I would recommend this place.
Response: Hello Christopher, I am glad Olivia was able to deliver the service that we are always aiming for. I also appreciate your honest feedback in regards to the food and the portions. I would really like to know more about your experience so that I can correct these issues. You can e-mail me at justin@prghospitality.com. Thanks again.

C Simpson: The restaurant atmosphere was beautiful. The brunch options were great. However the food was just okay. George, the manager, was great at accommodating our group and making sure that we were all taken care of. The servers appeared to be overwhelmed .
Response: Good morning, I am sorry that your experience was not up to your expectations. We work hard to provide the highest level of service and food that we can. If there is something we can do for you to make this better, please let me know at alanpopovsky@prghospitality.com

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)

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.

Coach Aundre Blasingame: The service from the hostess to the servers was beyond exceptional. They were willing to clear tables that they weren't serving. We asked a different server for a to go box...she took our dirty plates and brought us boxes back to pack our food (She didn't just pass it our server.) Food was good. Chocolate chip cookies were 🔥. Great atmosphere. Worth it for the time it takes to prepare scratch food. The Fishers Fryer and Bourbon Sour in the picture.
Response: Wow! Thank you so much, Coach! We appreciate your feedback and kindness! :) -Kerry

Ardavan Tookaloo: It is a very cozy restaurant and bar. There is option to seat inside or outside with heaters for winter. Servers are so nice and friendly. The atmosphere is good. The food is fresh and tasty. Drinks are good too. Just remember it is always crowded and packed. Even if you make a reservation you might still wait for another 45 minutes and that’s what has happened to us however the hostess was so kind and offered us a couple starters on the house to cover for the delay. Update: the more I go here the more I love it, specially the crews and managers! They are the best! Last time/night we were there late to celebrate a birthday and we ordered burgers with fries, after 15 min our waiter came back to us informing us they are out and offered us free desert to make up for it! The food is great as always but these kinds of attitudes and kindness is something we love and respect. Thank you guys we had a great night with great deserts! The chocolate ice cream which I believe is home made is a must to try! Super delicious!
Response: Thank you, Ardavan! We are thrilled that we have been able to turn around your previous impression! Also, we appreciate you dining with us and look forward to your next visit! -Tiffany

Kenzi LA Toy: A beautiful environment, the ambience was amazing. The server informative, but the orders compromised and wrong. I ordered the Honey Pot Chicken with fries as ah replacement but had the remind the server of my request because I received the original order with grits. Once I did get my fries there was hair added to my order. It was irritating! They finally brought out my fries and ah manager. The manager comp. Us dessert but part of the dessert order was wrong. All in all, in patience and understanding we had ah great time! Please note - everything here is made fresh. So ordering a soda means canned and no free refills! Just saying... #ᑕᕼOOᔕEᕼᗩᑭᑭY !
Response: Thank you for your feedback, Kenzi! I am glad the manager took care of the issues during this experience and I hope we will knock it out of the park the next time you join us! :) -Kerry

byron subero: This was on tiktok for brunch but I decided to try them out prior to. They didn't disappoint in service, food portion, drinks and delicious food all around. Everything fresh and allot to choose from. I wanted to try 3/4 of the drink and food menu! As you can see the inside is relaxing home on the modern day farm vibe.
Response: Thank you so much for dining with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed everything, and look forward to your next visit! -Tiffany

Kent Brackin: Great food and drinks. Everything seems to come with a mint topping so if thats not your thing might want pay extra care to the menu. There was plenty of seating when we went for brunch but i would suggesting making a reservation because it started to fill up over the two hours we were there. Breakfast stops promptly at 11 AM so make sure you plan according if you want try their amazing waffles! Bathrooms only have 3 urinials/1 toilet for male and two for the females so a line can quickly form trying to go. Waitresses/waiters seem really knowledgeable about the menu items but sometimes their response time can be less than ideal especially once the restaurant starts to feel up, but overall o had a great experience and look forward to going again!

Sun Family: We made advance reservations to have brunch at this beautiful restaurant in the Georgetown neighborhood. Make sure to book early! We were seated rather promptly but server took a while to show up at our table. We did not wait and got started at the buffet. The spread is amazing and make sure to pace yourself as you collect your food. I loved the fried chicken, the amazing artichoke and crab dip, their breakfast items, pulled pork, prime rib and ham, as well as the lovely spread of desserts! They came around with fried coconut shrimp and sushi.You can also request it if you don't see the server around. The hot chocolate was supposedly very good, according to the kiddos. I did not post any food photos because, there are way too many on their review site. Would definitely visit again!
Response: Amazing! We are thrilled you all enjoyed your brunch experience! We look forward to you all dining with us again soon! -Tiffany

Tina Marbury: The atmosphere was pleasant and the decor was admirable. The server arrived with a smile and an eagerness to assist and please our first visit here. The food although amazingly plated arrived tepid and bland. However, the alcoholic drink served was very good.
Response: Thank you for sharing, Tina! We hope to have you return to give us another try. We would love the opportunity to guide you to a meal you will truly enjoy! -Tiffany

Y Li: This is a nice and vibrant American restaurant. We opted for the outdoor lunch. Highly recommend the Mussel Pot in White Wine & Garlic, serviced w. their specialty rustic white boule bread, fluffy and lightly chewy, perfect balance dipping in the wine sauce. Shrimp fries and biscuits are tasty. Our lady server was warm and considerately brought one extra pot of hot water for the green tea pot to be shared.
Response: Thank you for your review, Y Li! Eating outdoors is always a great experience with the view and fresh air! Please come again! -Xenia

Jessica R: I was really excited to eat here based on several recommendations. However, I was a bit disappointed. We had breakfast here on a Friday morning and it wasn’t very busy when we got there. We still had to wait awhile on a table which we were okay with. I got the chicken and waffles and I felt as though for the price I was paying the piece of chicken was rather small and I maybe received a teaspoon of gravy. The chicken was also mostly breading and not a lot of meat. I also didn’t get any butter for my waffles and the waffles were just room temperature at best. The service was rather slow throughout the meal and unfortunately when you are waiting on something for your food (like the butter), then your food gets cold. I also got a Bloody Mary which was mediocre and slightly watered down, but I am kind of picky about my Bloody Mary’s so it was just one I didn’t like as much as others I’ve had. I am still giving three stars because my mom enjoyed her meal and didn’t have any complaints about her food. She just did the “build your meal” option and thought it was good.
Response: Hi, Jessica. I am very sorry to hear we delivered a less than stellar experience to you Monday morning. I do hope you will try us again and let us deliver a much better experience. -Kerry

TexCat: WONDERFUL lunch here. This is a great spot. Trendy restaurant with a cool vibe. Great service. Wonderful food and drinks. Ordered the mussels in wine and garlic sauce. Truly one of the best dish of mussels I’ve ever had! The accompanying bread was marvelous also! Couldn’t resist the bread pudding 😋 Highly recommend

Kinship: what do users think?


Andrea Bindewald: My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary dinner here this week. We had an awesome time. The service was amazing, and the atmosphere was perfect. Great lighting, good background music, and the restaurant was cozy but not overcrowded. The food and drinks were top notch. Paced well. The plating was beautiful and the various combinations of flavor profiles was really interesting and delicious. Highly recommend making reservations as they book up sometimes a week out. Only open Wed-Sun

Guilherme Montassier: The ambiance is very modern and light. It feels like you are in an art gallery waiting for new paintings to arrive, in between exhibits. The food is definitely above your average restaurant, with well thought flavor combinations and lovely presentation. Most of the dishes did not dazzle me, but the kinship roast chicken is a delight. Roast chicken done to perfection. I was also very surprised by the black forest cake. Overall a good experience, but am not planning a return for now.

Shannen: One of the best dinners I’ve had in DC to date! My boyfriend took me here for my birthday, and there was a little handwritten birthday note at the table when we arrived. Food was amazing; we truly loved everything we ordered (the potatoes served with the ribeye were too salty, though). Drinks were good too. Service was awesome, and I wish I could remember our main server’s name, because he was incredible. In summary, I highly recommend this spot for your next special occasion!!

Caroline G.: Maybe we came on a bad night? We came here on a Wednesday and overall just didn’t meet expectations. Presentation was always nice but the actual taste fell short. Drinks were underwhelming. The wait time between courses was excessive. Can’t remember all the names but we got a salad, ravioli, lobster French toast, lamb, halibut, peanut butter and pistachio desserts. The salad was odd and aside from the sauce not very appetizing. Pasta definitely fell short. Lobster French toast, as odd as that sounds, was the star of the night. Lamb was very dry and the toasted bread on top was soggy on the underside which ruined the texture they were going for. Just poorly planned dish all around. The halibut was confusing because yes, it was delicious and poached perfectly… but then it was 100% over staged by the curry. I enjoyed the dish I just can’t understand why they would choose to drown out such a beautiful piece of fish. I might as well have been eating potatoes, all I could taste was the curry. The desserts were hands down most disappointing. The peanut butter looked like a Kind bar was cut in half then they paired it with a spoonful of ice cream that just didn’t go. I think I would have rather ate a Kind bar. 3/10. The pistachio one was even worse as literally nothing alone or together was appetizing aside from the red sauce which we got 4 drops of. We were trying to figure out if there was something gone bad in the white sauce or if that was the taste they were going for. Our server insisted the pistachio was their best dessert so that was alarming. Speaking of server he was nice but just incredibly awkward and I felt like I was at a car dealership instead of a fine dining establishment. Everything here was just strange and missed the mark for me. Definitely wouldn’t return but given the other reviews I’m just thinking we might have come on an off night with B staff.

Shannon T: 2.5 stars. It’s just a regular fine dining place. Soup lukewarm. Bread soft and cold. No butter selection ( not Michelin level). The shrimp appetizer was odd - it was bland. The duck breast- we had way better one in Baltimore. The prime beef and foe grais were great! The lobster toast was delicious but texture wise was just sloppy. The overall presentation of food was very very normal. Only the server was smiling but none of the other waiters or waitresses were; one even sighed when serving us soup. In sum, service wasn’t even at fine dining level. This place is just okay for a regular fine dining and pricing, but certainly didn’t get a passing grade for a Michelin star restaurant for its food presentation, quality and service.

Kaitlin Wolfford: We were beyond pleased with our experience at Kinship. We were promptly seated upon arrival and the menu was explained to us. Drinks and food all came out in a very timely manner. We ordered the following: Puree of Brussels Sprouts Soup Lemon Crusted Filet of Halibut Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder Unfortunately I can't remember what the other dishes were called because this was a few months ago and the menu has been updated since then. Everything was excellent but the soup, the lamb, and the dessert were the stars of the night. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice night out.

Manda B: Best dining experience of my life. We had an incredible amount of fun. And if Matthew is your server, consider yourself incredibly incredibly lucky Lobster French toast 👌 Duck dish. 👌 Carrot cake... Killed us ♥️👌♥️👌

luci wang: Appetizers are amazing. Entrees are good but not as good as the appetizers. The roast chicken for the table is very big. If you're planning to get that for the table, skip out on entree so you'd have room for dessert

Andrea Martin: I’m not sure where the Michelin star came from- plating was beautiful the food fell flat. The seasoning on the food items was either way too much or not enough and they only seem to have salt- the duck breast was bland- the ribeye was a great cut but still not cooked to perfection. I am probably most impressed but the thumb fat asparagus tips that were tender. Left feeling underwhelmed and as though I overpaid for the meal and experience. The service was also underwhelming- I had to fill my own water glass the entire time and we ran out of water on the table and were never brought more. I also had to ask for a drink menu.

Rebecca Kaufman: One of my favorite places to eat in DC. Is it expensive? Yes. Expect to spend about $100-$150 a person if eating well and drinking cocktails or glasses of wine. However this is one of the few places that you will never be disappointed with the quality of food, service, and general atmosphere. It is absolutely worth every penny spent.

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.

Ambar Capitol Hill: what do users think?


Maya Bryant: I’ve been to this location for brunch twice so far. It’s a great place to go if you want to try multiple things. I went last time for my birthday brunch, which was on the rooftop floor. It was beautifully decorated and spacious for my party of 9. The food is always really good especially if you want to try new things. The crispy cheese slider really impressed me. Other great menu items include the mini burgers, beef prosciutto Benedict, and pecan and maple waffles. I would honestly skip the mac and cheese and bacon and grits, but it’s still worth a try being that you pay one price for everything. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I definitely wouldn’t mind coming back for dinner one day.

Scott Nguyen: Came in with high expectations based on recommendations from friends and certainly was not disappointed! The food was so delicious and the service was top notch. We ordered a lot of small dishes with plenty of options for meat and vegetarian eaters. Our servers constantly had food orders taken and delivered, and we walked away very stuffed. Highly recommended.

arun varughese: One of the best restaurants in DC. The price is high but you get unlimited food of premium quality. 45$ for dinner and 35$ for lunch. The food quality is of the level of a good high end restaurant with normal ingredients. All items are small plates but it’s not an issue as you can order them again. My favorites are rainbow trout, lamb lasagne and slow cooked beef. Almost all their items are good. I did not like salmon as it tasted very bland.

Leighton Smith: Our experience at Ambar was phenomenal. One of my top 5 favorite dining experiences across the world. For only $45 (plus drinks if desired), you get 2 hours at a table to sample anything on the Balkan / Eastern European menu. Everything tasted fantastic. The service we received from Tamara and others was 5-star. I cannot believe how flavorful everything was. What an awesome cultural experience. Thank you Ambar!!

Doris Becerra: I enjoy this place... I love it. All the food was great!! I would recommend! The lunch was amazing and very quite place. I went with my baby, my mother and husband and all was perfect! The waitress was phenomenal and very nice!! She explained how its works and she brings to us every plate that we want it repeat! We love it the place. Some photos of the lunch.. but I must take more photos!!

Stefan Tobler: Wow, this was my first bottomless brunch experience in DC and I’m glad it was. Ambar is a hell of a deal with some delicious food and exciting atmosphere. The photos below are from breakfast but their dinner is equally as fun! HIGHLY recommend, one of the only places I find myself at time and time again bringing all my new guests!

Gina Abrams: Me and the crew had a great time! We went for brunch. We were seating as soon as we arrived! Melissa was an excellent host! She kept the food coming. Everything was good (except for the bacon was too salty, I typically eat turkey bacon). Make your reservations today!

Aaron Phillips: Very cool place. Small plates but lots of them, great way to taste around the menu. The sausages and mustard were great, really enjoyed the mustard. A nice selection of wine out of Serbia, Bosnia, Slovenia etc. which was fun. It's nice inside too, perfectly casual with prompt service and a helpful waitress happy to answer menu and broader cuisine questions. Will absolutely be back next time we're in Washington.

Brittani Spaulding: My absolute favorite brunch spot ever. All you can eat food and drink for under $50 pp. Can’t beat it. Everything on the menu is tasty and the drinks are good. Make a reservation ahead of time. Make sure you come hungry and thirsty, the service is always great and plates and drinks are refilled quickly.

Viraj Patel: Great $35 unlimited plates brunch on the weekend. Be sure to get here at least an hour before closing so you have time to order all the plates. Best items: cheese pie, salmon Benedict, veal soup, kale Caesar, Balkan salad, grilled steak, fried chicken slider, pecan and maple waffle.

MI VIDA: what do users think?


Ben Vance: The staff (especially the hostess) were extremely nice and accommodating. We originally sat outside but realized it was getting too cold for us. So she found us a spot we could move inside which was an excellent, warm spot. The food was very good as well as the margaritas. Recommend checking it out.

Shriya Amit: We were planning to get some appetizers and landed in this restaurant accidentally. Happy hour is served only at the bar and it was full. So we ended up at the booth. Great ambience but okay food. Had ceviche and fish tacos with a cocktail. Our server kept saying you must try our “MOST DELICIOUS Guacamole”, don’t fall for it. It was freshly made but I make much better guacamole. My husband loves guacamole so he always orders it but $14 for a small bowl, not worth it.

Joe Hughes: Mi Vida was exceptional. The service was great as well as the food. This is the first place I have ever seen a hand blow dryer actually in the sink of the wash room. Outside on the wharf was beautiful. Don't be shocked at the bill, you kind of expect it to be a bit high in such a beautiful environment and for what you get.

DEZAREE JOHNSON: Mi Vida is now my favorite place to dine. I honestly have been there 3 times in the past week. The staff is always amazing and very patient with me lol. I can’t remember my first waitresses name but the last two times I had Wendy And Louise with his fine self. It sits right on the water. So there’s an amazing view. I will forever be a customer at this place.

Jim Haynie: This is my favorite lower cost food for happy hour. The prices on Taco Tuesday can't be beat! I love the food too. The also offer 3 floors of dining with a bar on the 3rd floor as well. Happy Hour is 4-6pm and lunch specials are great too!

CLAUDIA Arroyo: Could've been 5 Star but Mr Nestor was very rude when I was asking him a question first time here travel from Chicago and wanted to know about the restaurant and he shush me and ignore my question although never bother to come back and ask me if everything was fine gave other customers more attention and he completely ignored me and my party also another lady was very rude when I ask her where the bathroom was..... Food was amazing but unfortunately the service you get from the waiter Mr Nestor P kill the mood People this restaurant has an amazing shrimp cocktail 😋 I wish they can work better in customer service specially the waiter personal. There was a busser girl by the name of Maria she is the only person that gave us quality customer service and attention she should be the waitress 😉

Eric Lee: Prompt Seating, waiter very attentive. Food from, appetizers to dinner, very fresh. Food was tasty, guacamole fresh, chips and salsa also no complaints. Price average+ (pp) for location. Won’t be disappointed in taste, service and wait.

Tahoma Lewis: Had an excellent time at lunch. Our waiter was prompt, courteous and knew the protocol for removing flatware and dinnerware. This place has proven itself again to be a nice place to go for a fantastic meal.

Angel Fross: Pretty good! I definitely enjoyed my experience, but it wasn’t the absolute best food I’ve had, especially for the price. This is a good place to try once, but I don’t think it’s worth a second visit. Just not super notable, but the food is alright!

Leah Underwood: Yummy Mexican food with Happy Hour if you sit at the bar. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t serve happy hour for dine in. Beautiful scenery along the wharf. Known for their margaritas and guacamole. Everything is pretty much ala carte including the chips and salsa. Large bar when you enter with many delicious food options including a children menu.

Marisa Ramon: This was a really cute place to have a both creative and comfy buffet brunch on the weekend. They had a wide range of breakfast and lunch options. Everything was cooked well, the areas were kept clean, and didn't seem to sit long. Their dessert buffet was delicious and cute. Guests were respectful and wore masks at the buffet. As busy as it was, it was a nice dining experience. The espresso machine was broken and $4 for plain coffee seems like too much however everything else was great. They serve brunch until technically 2pm however it's not a hard time as they still serve buffet a little after for the late comers. The $30 brunch buffet cost might be a little high if you are running low on time so I would suggest arriving early and making the most of the experience. Also, it's very popular so I recommend making a reservation as well.

Courtenay O'Connell: We were staying at Hampton across the street, and decided to try their happy hour at F&D. Prices were good. Staff was excellent & really hustling. We didn’t have to wait long for food and drink. The spicy pork riblets were just okay - not much meat. He really wanted the hot dog ($6) and tater tots ($4), but they didn’t have them. Huge disappointment. I enjoyed my shrimp spring roll & Margarita (wanted it sweeter, though). The Margarita packed a punch! Or I’m a lightweight. Or both! I would have tried the other Spring Rolls, but hubby wanted something more to eat, and nothing on the menu appealed to him. Oh, well. Can’t please everyone.
Response: We hope you all will return sometime to explore more of our great menu! -Tiffany

Corey: A bit high end but the prices reflect the quality. We stopped here for dinner Saturday the 18th around 730. Our server Justin was great providing suggestions for cocktails (made with their own liquor) and food. We ended up doing appetizers for dinner and drinking a few rounds of delicious cocktails favorites included the bread platter, the barrel aged old fashioned and the bourbon maple smash. After it was all over we wished we had ordered from their excellent dinner options and hope to come back and try more of their excellent food.
Response: Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica

Bobbi DeAnda: Love this place! My husband and I went here for our anniversary and then again for his birthday! It’s definitely a treat. The half pound Louie is AMAZING! Drinks are pricey but tasty. The food is SOOOO good. Will definitely be back for special occasions!
Response: Thank you so much for the amazing review and celebrating your anniversary and your husbands birthday with us! We look forward to having you join us again! We can not wait to serve you! :) -Najjah

Weekend Warrior: Overall it was a positive experience. I thought the burger was good as was the tequila with egg whites. We reserved the outside area with the plastic around it and on the website it was $20 per person. It did come with the popcorn, but we DID NOT get the flights of whiskey which was promised on the website. I'm guessing the owner realized this because he gave us the desserts for free after we ordered them, but never mentioned the flights himself.

Simple Life Keekee: The restaurant overall decor is the BOMB, so clean and the workers are so informative and The drink I attempted to drink was their Strawberry and ginger Margarita (You have to love Ginger) overall the drink was good and I loved it. The crab and Artichoke dip was good wasn’t hot like in favor but was good. the burger was good as well need a little more seasoning however it was a 9/10 recommendation

Teresa Simmons: Incredible food and service. Interesting menu choices, very unique. Loved the cherry blossom dessert. The noodles in the cumin lamb dish were so good. Large variety of wonderful cocktails too!! Definitely get the dumplings appetizer, it is so good!
Response: Thank you so much, Teresa! You named all of our favorites too! :) -Kerry

Harry Irvine: Had brunch on a Saturday around noon, place was packed. Gotta make reservations ahead of time if you don't wanna wait 30 minutes. The brunch buffet was great, especially when the food came out fresh. Some dishes were better than others, but its a buffet so just get what you like. Value is okay, drinks is where they'll get you. One and done epitomizes this place!
Response: Thank you, Harry! We hope you will return soon for another great brunch! -Tiffany

Arn Heggers: Service has always been stellar, no question. The food was good, but for the price point, there is a higher expectation. The bread on my Reuben was dry and the meat was slightly overcooked, giving it a very chewy texture. Fries were cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of saltiness. Overall, it was a good diner experience.

M Lopez: This restaurant was highly recommended by friends, and I made sure to make reservations in advance. Was our 1st stop in DC, unfortunately it was a huge disappointment for us. Dinner started well, we were seated fast, ordered a drink, and bread basket which arrived fairly quickly, but after that, our food took more than 30 minutes, waitress never acknowledged us again and when the food finally came, she only said that the kitchen was busy, nothing more. Menu stated the pasta was homemade, not impressed. Fried green tomatoes were awful and their signature dish, fried chicken with mac and cheese was ok, Bojangles is better and much less expensive, lol. The only good thing was the drink and the corn bread.
Response: Oh no! I am so sorry we failed to impress this time. I know our team can do better and the dishes you mentioned- are so good! I would love to have you come back so that we can turn this around. Please email me at Hospitality@FRG.farm with a copy of your review, date dined, and location. -Kerry

Mintwood Place: what do users think?


Cheyenne: Delicious food, yummy cocktails, and kind staff. The Florence Benedict was the only just okay meal that we got. Everything else was stand out! The spinach was a little mushy. The homemade ricotta dish was absolutely worth it! The salmon toast was yummy. My fiance really loved the burger and it's highly loved by many!

J P: Excellent cocktails and food. New chef from Jan '22. Worth the walk, or drive if you're far. Inventive seasonal food that's reminiscent of classics you've had before but with a modern twist keeping you on your toes.

Ido Simyoni: First I’d say that Micki, our waitress was the sweetest and most caring ever. She clearly knows how to provide an excellent service. Following her recommendation, i took the LEG OF LAMB - (grilled leg steak, zucchini, hibiscus yogurt, mint + cumin relish) which was very rich and tasty s My colleague took MINTWOOD BURGER - (bacon, cheddar, pickled lettuce roulade, marie rose sauce, house cut fries or frisée salad) and said it was fantastic. My other colleague, took The MUSSELS (salt cod, smoked lemon, bacon, fennel, house cut fries) judging by how quick he finished it, clearly that he loved it to . My friend who took ROASTED HALF CHICKEN (roasted baby vegetables, jus de poult) says it tasted good however it didn’t looking very appealing (especially The chicken actually hand . The only thing we didn’t like was the CHOCOLATE TART - strawberry bubbles, puffed brown rice, smoked sweet cream. We felt that the smoke cream flavor was too dominant and overtook the flavor of the chocolate.

Charlie Wall: Amazing food, great atmosphere and impeccable, quick service. If you’re looking for a good place to eat in Adams Morgan look no further. Sergio was amazing and took care of us, made amazing recommendations, made our entire trip! Would give it more stars if possible.

Monil Pathak: Excellent stop for us on our short DC trip! Very glad we chose to come here. Excellent service—very friendly! We ordered the arancini—so good, very crunchy, special mention to the arancini sauce—think hummus but much much better! Great green salad, loved the fresh pears and pecans. For my main, got the pappardelle with truffle butter and mushrooms—pretty solid, just hoped it would be more creamy and little less chewy (I’ll give this specifically a 7/10). Last super special mention: ricotta cheese, I’ve never had better cheese before! That paired with the beets and the bread—so scrumptious!!

Sidney Binks: We went for Easter brunch. I'm always a bit worried when eating out on a holiday as it seems some restaurants either can't handle the crowd or take advantage by reducing service to make extra money. NOT the case here. Our family of five was greeted graciously. The staff was very attentive. Everyone loved their food. My Eggs Florentine was the best I've ever had...truly. My appetizer of bread with fig/ricotta spread was absolutely delightful. The experience was quality from start to finish. We are looking forward to returning.

Josy Skaf: Had a great meal with friends at Mintwood Place for Sunday brunch. Even though it was raining, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the food. Service is also good. The food is great, especially the fries!!

Alex Chapman: I had a solid brunch experience here on Sunday at 1 pm. The brunch special is a nice deal - $26 for an appetizer and entree, with a large drip coffee or juice. A mimosa or Bloody Mary is an additional $6. It's a good ratio of sparkling wine to juice as well. My friends and I all enjoyed our meals - I ordered the fried chicken sandwich and compressed fruit salad (so good, wish it was larger!). The atmosphere was nothing spectacular and indoors it does get rather warm and noisy. They do have a great outdoor setup with extensive seating under tents for shade. My friend who lives in the neighborhood and has been a few times says it's consistently good.

Cindy Mąka: The service was amazing. I've NEVER had my water glass stay this full. The bar drinks were excellent. The food was fantastic. My husband is garlic and onion intolerant, and they accommodated him with flavorful options.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Great selection of starters, entrees and cocktails. The burger is just OK, everything else we tried was very good. Service was a bit scattered, we were left waiting a bit at different points in the evenings.

Tiger Fork: what do users think?


Melanie Smith: Great spot for dinner- the food, drinks, and atmosphere are all on point. On weekends reservations are key! But if you’re a party of 2 you can probably easily grab a seat at the bar. All plates are designed for sharing and there were more things on the menu than we had room for! Service was great. Courses came out as they were ready and were perfectly timed. We never had too many things on our small table for 2. The restaurant was also quite busy even at 9:30 on a Saturday evening- the dining room was completely full. Highly recommend the Pork and Mango Bao, the dumplings, combo fried rice, and char siu. They also do take out and I’d say that all of these menu items would easily stand up well as takeout/delivery!

David Brenton: We headed to tiger fork for dinner on a Thursday night. Getting a reservation was harder than a COvid check (for most). They got a ton of pork on the menu, I like pork so it was solid. The buns are really tasty, pork belly was good, not overly fatty, properly fried, roast pork had great flavor, not that weird Chinese restaurant pork that you know deep down is going to hurt later. Fried rice was super fishy, lots of fish on the menu I had to pass on. Service was ok -- sorta weird, seemed kinda rushed but then no attention. If they expanded the menu I'd go back.

Laetitia Monnier: Good restaurant and great food. The atmosphere is really nice with the big bar and they have a nice outdoor area too. The food was good even though it was a bit expensive. Our waitress was really nice and helpful too. We had a good time there and we’ll certainly come back.

Matthew Mai: One of my favorite places in Blagden Alley. Amazing food and great, distinct drinks! All the dishes I had tended to have a slightly sweet aftertaste, which was definitely new to me in terms of Chinese/Hong Kong restaurants I’ve been to. Also love all the Baijiu drinks and am quickly trying them all.

Lisa B.: 3/1/2022. Wonderful atmosphere great food I had combo fried rice, smashed cucumber salad, pork ribs, every food item was AWESOME! (Note: 20% gratuity added on all checks regardless of size of party) Great waitstaff. Only downside parking (nothing restaurant can do about that)

Karina Perez: The food was amazing. The ambiance is very welcoming and the service is great. Though the cherry soda wasn’t the greatest, the food came really fast and we were up for seconds. I would definitely consider coming back.

Kennith “Conley” Coleman: Hong Kong style street food in sharing sized plates. The dumplings were amazing and the pork ribs were some of the best ribs I've ever had. The pan fried noodles were so good as well.

Urbashi Zaman: Love love this place. The atmosphere is great at this restaurant. My go-to dish is always the combo fried rice, quite honestly one of THE best fried rices I’ve had (if you like spicy, ask for their chili oil too on the side). Drinks are also great, although pricey, but definitely strong. Get a reservation if you can! Place is busy, or go early to sit at the bar (still a great experience to eat/drink if at the bar)

II LL: # I am keeping my rating but just want to add that the tables are so close to each other in the booth area and one guy sitting next to me keep cursing loud while talking in his group, errrrrrrrrrr.# Having been trying different including Michelin restaurants lately in DC area. Went there with high hopes since I love Asian food, Chinese food especially, but unfortunately left with some disappointments. For starters, the beef tendon salad came with a combination of traditional chili beef tendon-kind of Sichuan style and western salad made with the choice of reddish. Neither of each nor the combination taste good, actually too much reddish makes it really tasteless—no taste almost. Dumplings came with steamed or boiled style and it is just so cringe to me that it is not wrapped well—with openings (not good if you ever wrapped dumplings with any Chinese friends lol), in addition, the taste was not so appealing. Main course of the fried chili fish accompanied with white rice is a major turn-away for me. After the few fried fish topped above the Napa cabbage (I guess the chef might want to do it in a western salad combined with eastern rice style) it has nothing to go with rice. Raw cabbage as a salad with rice....errrrrrrr, not something that give good comfort as food in general. The Cha Siu pork is the only dish I would consider semi-good that would bring up the tasting experience better so far. As for the Hong Kong Milk tea, since it is a Hong Kong kitchen, I would expect it would be somewhat authentic Hong Kong style, but most bubble tea shop I tried would make it better. Also if the service in a Michelin restaurant is excellent, I would consider the restaurant being considerate for saving some brain cells to calculate the tip and include it in the bill, however if the service in the restaurant didn’t standout or even less from an average one, then the 20% service fee pre-included in the final bill gave a bad “taste.” Finally, who would put the mint candy in the bathroom?!?! This restaurant has some good google review ratings, I do like the cool interior design and I really wish I would have had some good comforting tasting experience there. Maybe it is the specific dishes I ordered didn’t turn out to be that good, but only one of four dishes I ordered was somewhat satisfying, I don’t think it is compelling enough for me to come back and try the other ones. Still wish the restaurant would excel...All the best!

Anieleen: After researching for the best Chinese Food in the DC Chinatown, I've ran across a review for Tiger Fork. Unfortunately, the hype didn't live up to my expectation. The reviews had glorified the famous Fried Rice and having been on a low carb diet for over a year, I thought I would splurge on my vacation and order it. The plating was great but it was glistening with oil. Left me with a free lip gloss for the rest of the night. The special fish entree for the night was slightly better. Unfortunately, it had a thick sugary sauce and oily as well. We reserved a table using Resy and had texted us an hour, then 30 minutes before our reservation time. Then received another text from the restaurant reminding us to cancel if we aren't going to make it. The received another text stating that to please remember to adhere to the 90 mins maximum time allowed for dinner. I know this restaurant must be very busy for them to keep reminding us. As you can see from the photo this was not the case for the Saturday evening we dined.

Deborah Altman: A wonderful place for a special occasion. Outdoor patio dining added to the ambiance. Food, wine and service were all wonderful. Did an excellent job with gluten and dairy free. Server asked if cross contamination was an issue. I greatly appreciated that. We will be back!
Response: Thanks for joining us at St. Anselm, Deborah! We’re glad that you had a 5-star experience and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to follow us @stanselmdc to keep in touch on Instagram!

andrew: Super cute place, spacious and fun! Had dinner here with some friends on a Friday night. We made reservations for 630pm and was seated inside at one of their booths. We started off with biscuits, cooked Oysters, deviled eggs, and giant prawn as our appetizers. The biscuits are a must order item. They’re fresh and warm, and comes with a side of polenta spread. Every bite melts in your mouth. The Oysters were good and had a nice flavor. You couldn’t “taste” the sea. Both the prawn and deviled eggs were pretty standard. A bit boring and standard in taste. I had the steak as my main course, along with a side of broccoli and baked potatoes. Steak was medium and full of flavor in every bite. The broccoli was just okay, and worked as a side going along with something that had more flavor. The baked potatoes are much like fries, seasoned with herbs. There’s plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, but i still recommend making a reservation. They have some great large, private booth areas outside to accommodate guests during the pandemic. I sure hope they get to keep it all up for a while. Parking can be tough in the area on busy nights and weekends, but the Union Market parking lot should work. Service was fast and friendly.
Response: andrew, 5-star experiences are what we strive for day in and day out here at St. Anselm. Thank you for the great feedback and we'll hopefully see you again soon!

Evita Pass: I took my nephew here for his post-prom brunch and we loved it. He had the Bodega breakfast sandwich and I had steak and eggs which had a perfectly cooked medium steak that came with a side of their deliciously crispy potatoes. Get the heritage bacon when you order becasue it's thick salty goodness is worth it!!!
Response: Thanks for joining us at St. Anselm, Evita! We’re glad that you had a 5-star experience and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to follow us @stanselmdc to keep in touch on Instagram!

Mike Ragsdale: Incredible steak in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Feels like a neighborhood bar where I wish I was a regular, yet packs the punch of a 5 star steakhouse in the menu and wine list. The grilled mushrooms are the best I've ever had, and I don't like mushrooms.
Response: Mike, thank you for such a wonderful review. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience at St. Anselm. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another 5-star experience!

Cyriac Edappully: The service and our server were excellent. However the food was just okay. Came here with high expectations after going to La diplomat. The ribeye was good but not great. We also tried the skate wing which was something we've never tried before. Unfortunately we could only taste the seasoning on the skate wing. So I couldn't really say how it's supposed to really taste like. The Bobo chicken was also just okay. Same goes for the New York strip. The best dishes there were probably the lamb steak and the biscuits. The sides were also quite good.

Bryan Webb: Delicious food in a relaxing yet lively atmosphere. Everything we had was perfectly prepared and highlighted the protein while pairing it with unique sauces. Excellent local beer selection.
Response: Thank you for such a complimentary review, Bryan. We’re excited that you found our food and service to be five-star worthy. We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future at St. Anselm.

Melanie Smith: Consistently great food. We love bringing friends from out of town because we always know the food will be outstanding! Everything on the menu is a home run… but we especially love: Ax Handle steak, salmon collar, the biscuits and pimento cheese, and pan fried potatoes. Reservations highly recommended- especially on weekends. They also have outdoor seating.
Response: We seriously have the best guests out there! Thank you so much for the shout out, Melanie. We greatly appreciate the 5 stars and look forward to seeing you again!

Jean Ng: The atmosphere is great. Lots of outdoor booth tables and inside decor is a mashed up of someone’s luxury cabin with a touch of industrial. While the decor is interesting and the service was good, the food was just ok. I read that other patrons was raving about the butcher’s steak but mine came out a little chewy although cooked to my request of medium rare. We both find that the pan fried potato was a little too herby for our taste. One thing for sure we both love the rich ice cream cake that put a sweet note in the end of our meal. I do believe in second chance, we will be back next time. Theres some dishes I would like to try like the baby iceberg and ax handle ribeye.

Bobbi DeAnda: Oh my gosh. So glad we went to this place! Such a cool vibe. We were able to get in with no reservation - sitting at the chefs counter - which totally worked for us. Our server was very attentive and the service was very quick! The food…OH MY GOSH! That ribeye is up there with one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Such a fun date night. We will be back! Also, each plate is unique and you get a postcard with the check!
Response: Courtney, 5-star experiences are what we strive for day in and day out here at St. Anselm. Thank you for the great feedback and we'll hopefully see you again soon!

ESB NYC: Cool place in Union Market. Kind of an old school steak house with a modern vibe. Excellent service. I had the draft Vieux Carré cocktail, $14, pretty tasty. We shared the blue crab deviled eggs ($14) and the oyster appetizer at $19 for 6 cooked oysters. My husband had the butcher steak which was $34 and flavorful but pretty tough. I had the rockfish entree (also $34), nice piece of fish in a mussel cream sauce. A little fishy for my taste (freshwater fish) from the Potomac, lol?! We shared the fried mashed potatoes and creamed spinach sides. We shared the ice cream cake dessert, I think it was $11. Tasty but just a little rich after a fairly heavy meal. All in all, expensive but pretty good.
Response: ESB, thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent experience at St. Anselm. We're happy to learn your visit was an enjoyable one and we look forward to welcoming you back soon and earning that last star.

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.

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.

CUT by Wolfgang Puck - DC: what do users think?


Nadia Pinto: Dinned here on February 15th with my husband. Excellent service, the food was nicely prepared and the ambiance was cozy yet bustling. We were originally guided to a table by the window but it was receiving a draft from outside so we were moved to a booth. Everything was delicious and the level of service always makes an experience so much better. We really enjoyed the roasted cauliflower, filet mignon, a fish dish (cant remember the name), my fav was the macaroni and cheese. Hubby had a few glasses of wine and for dessert we had a yummy slice of blueberry cheesecake.
Response: Dear Nadia Pinto: Thank you so much for your very kinda review and rating! I hope we have the chance to welcome you back in teh near future. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Ron H: Good food, great cocktails, very nice atmosphere. Could do better with the try-hard service, esp at this price point. Starters and appetizers were good, meat in the mains was done to perfection, just the right temp and just the right cuts. The tartar was disappointing, as well as the fact that despite ordering the starters together, they were served staggered with no real attention to the pace or order. The deserts were fine - cheesecakes and the hot chocolate fudge (?) The cocktails were amazing, we could have drank way more unless the place completely shut at midnight.
Response: Dear Ron H: Thank you for this rating and your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your meal with us and appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on areas that could have further enhanced your experience. This review will be shared with the team. We look forward t your return. Sincerely, CUT DC/ Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Juan vera: Amazing service, atmosphere and presentation. Cauliflower appetizer was excellent ! a must try. Steak entrees were very good, but honestly was expecting a bit more at this price point. Even had to mention mine could have been warmer, staff offered very nicely and insisted on replacing it, which I appreciated but declined. Still a very good steak. Since I had mentioned it was an Anniversary celebration they offered complimentary sparkling wine and cake slice. Very nice.
Response: Dear Mr. Vera: Thank you for your very kind rating and honest feedback. It is truly appreciated! Sincerely, CUT DC and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Craig Herrick: Six stars. I’m spoiled for all future steaks. Served by a wonderfully professional staff in a beautiful environment. Bring your AMEX
Response: Dear Mr. Herrick: Thank you for the amazing review and the additional star! We look forward to having you with us again in the future. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

sam adam: This restaurant is top notch. The food was excellent, the decor was superb, and each was only surpassed by the highest level of service by our food connoisseur engineer “Pink” who doted on us in a perfect combination of supply and demand. It was really an excellent night for my two children and me. Wonderfully done! Thank you
Response: Dear Mr. Adam: Thank you very much for this wonderful review of your experience with us. We particularly appreciated you highlighting, Pink. She is a true gem on our team! We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Sincerely. CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Jose Alvarez: Very nice and beautiful spot in Georgetown, from the hospitality of the hostess to the quality of the food, everything very nice. Unfortunately, our server was not exactly up to all the high standards of the place. I was going with a much lower rate because of this, but Luke, the manager, who was asking about our experience, received my comments and he REALLY cared about it and made real efforts to compensate it and made it right, he is definitely way above even the standards of that place, easy to understand why he is the manager. Thank you!
Response: Dear Mr. Alvarez: Thank you so much for your feedback and rating. It was great to read that Luke was able to turn your experience around. We are hope to welcome you back in the near future! Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Kadee Exploring: Amazing food, amazing service, just plain amazing! Valet parking is available at 15. 00 dollars and well worth it to avoid dealing with the areas tight streets! Valet staff was punctual and over the top friendly! We had reservations but were early, there was no problem seating us right away! We ordered truffle fries, Louisiana prawns, steak tartar, Colorado lamb chops , white & green asparagus, caramelized cauliflower, charred half Amish chicken, and the kardinal schnitte (tastes like the best strawberry shortcake ever). Service was beyond exceptional and the prices were spot on for this style of dining. A small pop in bathroom is located just off the dining room and a larger restroom is downstairs. Both were well kept. Location is convenient to shops and great for an easy stroll. Give this place a shot for a tailored to you evening!
Response: Dear Kadee - thank you for this wonderful review! We hope to see you again soon. CUT DC - Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Andrew (Noh Leftovers): Collaboration Dinner - Amuse Bouche: Virginia Striped Bass Ceviche - Charred Leeks | Hazelnuts | Lemon | White Truffle - Veal Sweetbreads | Apple | Onion Sauerkraut - Bone-In 11 Oaks Farm Wagyu Sirloin | Potato Tartine | Lobster Fried Rice | Eggplant - Kaiserschmarren | Black Rock Apple | Fromage Blanc
Response: Andrew - thank you for your kind rating and photographs! We look forward to your return. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Sherman C: Excellent service. Steak options with some Asian flavors. I thought the food was good but not special. The crab fried rice was a bit too salty and the rock fish wasn’t particularly flavorful or flaky. Dessert was freshly baked and nice. Nice wine selections. Server was very friendly and was wearing mask and gloves the whole time. Dined here December 2020.
Response: Dear Sherman: Thank you for your review - we hope you continue to dine with us and try our new items as they are added to the menu.

Don Shah: Have unfortunately never been to the renowned Wolf Gang in NY yet, but this particular location in D.C was nothing short of spectacular. From the ambiance, to the exquisite execution of the menu items. I live in Tampa, FL, and often have projects In the D.C area. Will definitely be revisiting this fine establishment.
Response: Dear Mr. Shah: Thank you for your very kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us and hope it was the first of many. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Logan Tavern: what do users think?


Nomad USA: Super chill neighborhood tavern. The host there is generally pretentious and cold. I’ve had this issue getting seated at the LT in the past. Their hosts is is far from friendly as is imaginable. Even with the place completely empty, getting a booth probably requires a some type of cash payoff. The servers are super chill and helpful. Menu is great. Wide variety of appetizers and entrees. I had the BBQ Korean wings and the LT burger with truffle fries. The LT burger was just a buck more, truffle fries 2 bucks more, all super tasty and perfect medium rare. They have little alcove by the bar, great for people watching, and the requisite long bar for a casual lunch or dinner. Bathroom. 6/10 for cleanliness.

Kiffa Shirley: Wanted to try something new and made our way to Logan Tavern over the weekend. We ordered the empanada appetizer, and the figgy burger with truffle and B.A.B Grilled Cheese. Everything was delicious but I may have overdone my taste buds with the truffle. They were tasty fries but next time I will just get to enjoy the burger with regular fries. Can't wait to return.

Matthew Cook: Very good food. Plenty of menu variety so everyone should be able to find something. Including some decent vegetarian dishes. Good cocktail and beer selection. Extremely friendly staff and very efficient.

Hong Hanh Dinh: Amazing service here. Our waitress was very sweet and friendly, giving us all the best recommendations and attentive to our needs. The food was amazing. I loved the steak and eggs, it wasn't an aggressive portion but the right sized to be full and comfortable without the discomfort and regret afterwards that you've over eaten. The bloody Marys were awesome! They offer different kinds of bloody Marys and you can choose which topping you'd like. There is also a huge boot sized bloody Mary but i went for an easy individual size. The dessert options are so great. I love the Mango key lime pie which I think is the restaurant favorite. Would come back again and again!

Jay Vizcarra: LGBTQ+ friendly with great eats! I had one of the famous cheeseburgers on the menu which was super tasty. Usually hopping with great people eating there. Centrally located with a pleasant neighborhood walk surrounded by other places to eat in the area.

Darnice Ward: Logan Tavern was a great choice for an after graduation celebration. None of us had ever been to Logan Tavern as we are from out of state. In our party of 14 only 2 of our party members were from the area, and they had never been either. The did not have a table on Open Table to seat all of us so I reserved several tables and hoped they could seat us near one another. I called and talked to someone who said they would and they OVER delivered and seated us together!!! Our food was delicious and each person was happy with their selection. Although the menu is not extensive it has something for everyone. We had everything from wings, burgers, dip, salad and seafood pasta. Drinks were tasty and the alcohol in them was of average amount. Our waiter. He got every order correct and was consistent with checking on us. He brought found out in a timely fashion and waited for me because I was sitting between both tables. He seemed to have another big party as well. However, the only thing is that he seemed slightly annoyed NOT rude just bothered. We would definitely return again if back in the area. Right now it is tough to service the public so I understand our waiter may have been overwhelmed, please be kind to our service workers.

John G: Logan Tavern, an old favorite over the years, haven’t frequented there as much as I used to. However, I’ve stopped in recently for the greatest drinks made by bartender John. Logan has a great fried chicken classic, with wonderful homemade mashed potatoes and generally Swiss chard… I prefer the asparagus, though, so make sure you ask if you want something different. Chipotle chicken sandwich is wonderful as well, and more recently, I have fallen in love with the pulled pork barbecue sandwich, minus the bun… and a couple extra pickle slices! Bartender John is fantastic at getting your order right, your food tasty, even while I subtract a few calories with a few changes! Thanks John for keeping Logan, local, lovely, and (de)licious!

Patty Cannon: Excellent food & service! The chef came out to meet us and to be certain we were happy! Such a wonderful adventure for us! A large group of 10 and there were several couples enjoying dinner around us...as well as bar seating. Excellent choice for dinner!

courtney mims: Nice place but parking can be a challenge. My husband loved the burger and my sister enjoyed the asparagus salad. The garlic and parmesan fries are yummy but I wasn't a fan of the Buffalo shrimp. It was swimming in sauce and too rich with the blue cheese added. The drinks are good and we love that it is pet-friendly.

Michele R McConnell: We had a great experience. I have a food sensitivity / allergies and they were very accommodating. Aubry was a fabulous server and kept up with our drinks and food. The chef came out and discussed food options for myself and delivered!
