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.

RPM Italian: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Corduroy: what do users think?


J Taylor: We held a wonderful surprise dinner last Friday. The food was delicious and prepared nicely, compliments to the chef! The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for our birthday celebration and the staff was phenomenal, especially Natasha!!! Everything was amazing! Thanks to Corduroy for making Friday a special night.

Tatianna Barrett: My family and I ate here for Christmas Eve dinner, and I have to say we were disappointed. While I appreciated the fact that the chef was able to have vegan options (called ahead, of course), in NO WAY did I think it was worth the same price as the regular prix fixe menu items. It was good, but definitely not for the price; should have paid half. The sorbets, unfortunately, tasted like freezer burn. The rest of my family enjoyed their food, so that's good. The big reason why the 2 stars was the service and quality of service. It took an incredible amount of time in between meals to get our next meal. Literally took almost 25 MINUTES to just get our drinks. Additionally, you couldn't really tell who was a server and who wasn't. You could completely tell that the restaurant was really understaffed that evening, and it just showed across the board, and seemed a little chaotic and unorganized. And unfortunately, our "main" server kept blaming other people, circumstances, etc. for the wait time, and ended up having a little bit of an attitude and quite defensive when we brought this up nicely. Listen, we completely understand we're dining in a pandemic and that people call off sick, don't show up, or don't want to work; however, if you're a HIGH END restaurant, despite the circumstances, you must deliver the same quality. And if not, then changes have to be made, such as limit the amount of reservations. And then, when we went to get our coats, the hostess was nowhere to be found; and when found, she was in the kitchen doing dishes. We spent well over 3 hours here, and it wasn't us just enjoying long conversation and the ambience. Unfortunately, it's an "enter at your own risk" type of review.

Morgan Fykes: Had a fabulous time back at Corduroy. The food was delicious and the service was good (poor guy was flying solo cause it was a VERY quiet night) - definitely enjoyed the meal and was glad to be back!!

Scott Plunkett: We just dined here for the Christmas Eve and I thought the experience overall was good with some areas of improvement. The service was acceptable but for the price I would have expected a slightly higher degree of attention to detail. Our waitress couldn’t really describe any dish in detail or how it would be presented when asked, and timing of service was a little odd as well. The first course came IMMEDIATELY, and I mean immediately after ordering before we had even time to butter our bread or take a drink of our cocktail, fine- but then afterwards the second course took a very, very long time to come out after we were done with the first course- just seemed a little odd, nitpicking maybe but I felt a little more continuity in timing would have been nice. We were about half way done with our dinner when someone came and asked if we were done- clearly we weren’t- again maybe too picky of me but there were leftover butter plates and other silverware on the table which weren’t taken away at the same time, just a little odd. Overall slightly slower/less attentive/aware service than I would have expected. But that may just be me using the high bar of DC restaurant service as an unrealistically high expectation. The food I thought was quite good, the tuna tartare and red snapper bisque were delicious. The sauces for each entree were amazing and the cuts of meat were perfectly fine but nothing to write home to mom about. Dessert was also very good. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to a friend and the combination of food and service was reasonable for the price point. Waitress could have known more about food and wine options and service could have been a bit more cohesive/attentive.

Zoe Burger: Best meal I've had in a LONG time. I already want to go back. We had the tuna. I also had the red snapper bisque- amazing. My friend had the beet salad and she enjoyed it. Oh, but that tuna! Perfection! Waitress was helpful and nice but she let us sit a bit too long once we finished. I noticed a faint cigar scent from the shop next door.

Boulder Skywatcher: We were a party of 5 who came to DC for a once in a lifetime celebration. I very much regret having chosen this restaurant for our family celebration. The food was good, but the service was beyond terrible. We waited to be seated (NOBODY at the door to greet guests), we waited 20 minutes for water and menus, our wine glasses stayed empty, our meal service took forever, and we skipped dessert because there was nobody who could be bothered to attend us. Yes, the food was good, but not so good to tolerate such bad service. I am sick of being told restaurants can't get help. Then don't open your doors. You very nearly took the special out of our special occasion, and there is no excuse whatsoever for taking so much of a customer's money and delivering such a terrible experience.

Keren Daniel: An absolute pleasure!All dishes are made from scratch, using the best ingredients, including desserts.

Jeff: So here is the deal. I got a dinner for 2 valued at $120 thru Verizon up program. After making the reservation I took my wife and we went to the restaurant. The restaurant is very nice and quiet with low lighting, it has a modern look to it. The lady who greeted us was super nice and gave us our Verizon up menus. Then came the server. When she saw we had Verizon up menus she looked not so happy. She never introduced herself. She took our order. I ordered green salad that was great. Then Flat iron steak with mushrooms for main course ( she never asked what sides I wanted when the plate can it had potatoes and green beans on it). I did not want to make a scene but anyway the food was excellent. Kudos to the Chef. Then came dessert it was Pistachio bread pudding, which was delicious. Other then the server being standoffish and not coming to check on us the restaurant was beautiful and the food was great.

lynda wright: There were 8 of us All LOVED the food and service. Only down side was the cigar shop next door. The smell was coming into where we sat. Several of the group were absolutely appalled. We do not SMOKE!! Understand the restaurant is trying to work out a solution. But next time we come we will change where we sat. BUT ABSOLUTELY 1 of the best restaurants in DC.

TYG Handyman: One of the best gems in DC. Wine list is great, service is excellent and food is awesome. Never had a bad meal. Chocolate tart, tuna with rice, all the soups just eat everything.

The Oceanaire Seafood Room: what do users think?


Anna Sumner: I was a member of a party of 5 for my friend's birthday. We were able to reserve a table in advance which was very convenient. Our server, José, was impeccably warm and attentive. The food was beautifully plated and delicious. I tried the chicken-fried lobster and would totally recommend. No part of our meal or experience was anything less than great. It's pricey, but I'd definitely dine here again.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Maya Bryant: Went here for dinner to celebrate my birthday with friends. They were really great at accomplishing a large group of 11. Service was a little bit slow, but that is okay since there was so many of us. Everyone really enjoyed their food and drinks. I ordered the king crab and creamed corn, both were very delicious. The sangrias were also a hit if you like sweet drinks. Just be aware that cake cutting is $5 PER SLICE. yikes. At least they gave me the slice with my name on it.
Response: Hello, we appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6260bSjCO

Kyle Lennon: Oceanaire is certainly a class act in fine dining, our meal was absolutely superb. The cocktails were very strong handed and delicious, our server even made one himself. He was an incredible and attentive server that I will certainly be requesting next time. The swordfish, outstanding. The baked Alaska was truly a moment to remember to top it all off. Valet parking was spot on too. 👌🏻🥂
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. Your satisfaction is our priority, and as affirmed by your review, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. We sure hope to see you again soon!

Kenyetta B: My husband and I treated my mom to dinner her for her birthday. My husband had been here many times before and it was my mom and I's first time. She and I are from Louisiana and he thought she'd love the seafood since we eat a lot of it there. I have to say it did not disappoint. She and I both had a mixed grill for our entre and my husband had the lobster fried rice. For apps we had calamari, shrimp cocktail, clam chowder and escargot. Everything tasted really good. I wasn't a huge fan of the escargot, but we ordered it b/c it was the opportunity for me to try it. It didn't taste bad, but it was more of a texture thing. The mixed grill, everything was cooked to perfection! The butter sauce, I had to get extra because it was soooo good. My mom loved everything so we were very happy about that. And they even bought out the flaming baked Alaska and she was over the moon about it. We left well fed and well taken care of. The ambiance was nice and oceanie and it's a great place for special occasions or just a great seafood dinner.

Christopher Gillespie: We had an amazing dining experience thanks to Carlos and the support staff. No glass was even close to empty and attention to detail on every dish. I got the whole fried snapper and it was as tasty as it looks. Great oysters, even had west coast options.
Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It means so much when our customers share their experiences. We are glad we were able to meet your expectations! We hope to see you again soon!

Fallon Valentine: I really enjoyed this place, the oyster omg they were amazing, the mussels were so delicious only disappointment was my steak temperature I asked for medium rare and got a well done steak it was still tasty and tender. I love how the servers take really good care of you.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

m weston: Loved the food! Loved the setting and ambiance! Awesome service … BUT super pricey. If you have money to burn then this is your place. Once is enough for me. Lol

Sandra: The place was 5 star service, from the valet to all the staff. Everybody treated our party like VIP. We sit at the bar waited for all my guest to arrive. The bartender treated us like VIP. That service was superb. Who ever trained the staff, has done a magnificent job. The drinks at the bar and the food at the table was excellent. I was celebrating my birthday. This was a excellent choice. I felt like royalty. Prices were expensive, but well worth it. The side choices could be expanded a little bit more of a variety. Seafood choices, I expected a bigger selection, but everybody has cut their menus down. Overall the menu was good. I will definitely go back. It was a delightful pleasure. Thank you, A Birthday Charm Saturday 12/18/21

Aurora Martinez: One negative thing, we were seated next to a table that had loud people and kind of disturbed us a little. Like they were no more than 3 feet from us and they were REALLY loud. Another table had to move because the other table was loud. Not something you want to experience when you're trying to enjoy fine dining.
Response: Hello, we appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6266wbtjo We hope to see you again soon!

Bill A: While the service was good, I would not recommend this restaurant‘s food. I had to send my steak back twice and they still couldn’t get it right. The crab Cobb salad had very little crab and the side of crab Louis was a bunch of gooey whatever. After spending over $300 on “dinner” for 3, I had to go to The Hamilton for dinner. Highly recommend The Hamilton but make reservations in advance. Food is great and surprisingly good value.

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.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab: what do users think?


Teresa Simmons: Amazing food, impeccable service. The ambiance is so relaxing and lovely. A true gem in DC. Oysters Rockefeller was so good, best I have had in years!! The sangria was flavorful and refreshing. We can't wait to visit on our next trip to DC!!! The chocolate fudge pie was decadent and delicious! This was just 1/2 a slice, more than enough to share!!!

Alexander Staufenberg: My parent took me here for their anniversary dinner. I was sort of nervous about the vegetarian options — but I was very pleased with stuffed mushrooms, the potatoes lyonnaise and the steamed asparagus. The portions are very generous. After hearing we were celebrating an anniversary the house gave us a complimentary brownie with ice cream and whipped cream. It was divine.

Konstantin: Great restaurant. Atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and food is really good. Oysters were fresh and fried chicken was simply delicious. This place is very popular so reservation is recommended there.

Luke L'sk: The one seafood restaurant that is repeatedly being recommended as we search online for dinner it is located very close to the White House so if you're tourism then may as well go there for a night view of the front of the president's home. if you're driving to have a file a talking for $20 right in the front so that you don't have to worry about finding a location to park your vehicle. I would highly recommend that you make reservation a few days ahead as there is hardly any space for time slot when I was booking my reservation; we were seated very quickly after entering the restaurant. It is a large selection for drinks on cocktail and wine. Maturity of the food selection is based on Seafood. We chose to have some raw oyster as well as a sample of the seafood selection for appetizer with entree as the seafood pasta and a flounder on the market price list. We had some question on the wine selection, the supervisor or the manager on the floor came to advise and give us the recommendation for the wine that we would like to have, he was very knowledgeable. Our waiter Kurt is splendid, he was very friendly and attentive, making sure our needs are met. It was a lovely dining experience to spend my friend's birthday dinner there. it was a nice touch that Kurt could gave us a complimentary ice cream brownie with a candle to blow for his birthday wish of the night

James Marable: Had the filet & lobster tail both were cooked perfectly. The lobster Mac could benefit from the addition of a more bold cheese to add flavor as it was somewhat bland. Service was great and loved that they kept my sparkling water on ice! I also had the crab bisque but it lacked crab, it was mostly onions/shallots (nothing like the crab bisque as Jeff Ruby’s in the Midwest).

Swastika Nohara: The best stone crab there is! My favorite was crab stuffed shrimp because it was creamy and delicious! Perfectly seasoned and crunchy at the same time. Creamed spinach and broccolini was also nice. We spent 156 USD for those meals as seen on my photos.

Maryam Sherbaf: We went to Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone crab for our anniversary. The service is excellent, atmosphere is nice , the restaurant is pretty packed. The food is good but it’s a bit overrated and overpriced.

Allison Williams: Wow this place is gorgeous, really nice ambiance, I want to start there. The food is delicious and fresh as well. It is pricey so if your going and you have a party of more than 2, expected to spend like 100$ a person. The drinks were good but not strong enough for me. It was my birthday and my first time there and I enjoyed every moment.

Melissa Flaminio: Our waiter Jeffrey was fantastic. We were looking for a good seafood spot close to our hotel that we could celebrate my recent graduation and it totally hit the spot. Got the seafood pasta and the crab was buttery with citrus, and the little slices of asparagus was top notch. Loved it and definitely worth the trip

Tarek Paige: It was my husband and I 24th anniversary a magical night at Joe's, it doesn't matter what you order the food and Service are Superb and all the desserts are made in house I suggest that you make a reservation valet parking Is available, Joe's is a great place you won't be disappointed

Ocean Prime: what do users think?


Steven Dominguez: Steak is top tier, dare to say quite possibly the best steak in the city. The sides, service and calamari appetizer left MUCH to be desired. It's a shame you have to make this trade off to enjoy such a good steak. Didn't try the seafood. Value? $250 for two with no alcohol seemed slightly overpriced, especially with a comped dessert.

Solana Cox: We celebrated our 5 year anniversary here all the way from Pittsburgh and let me tell you, Ocean Prime did not disappoint. It was well worth the start of our road trip to DC. Everyone who came to our table went above and beyond. I ordered the teriyaki salmon and it was scrumptious! When I told the waiter that it was our anniversary, they made sure it was going to be a night to remember. Highly recommend this place.

Syerra Carigo: We visited for happy hour on Wednesday and it wasn’t too crowded. I tried their delicious steak tartare and my husband had their oysters. I also tried their “berries and bubbles” cocktail which comes with dry ice, Belvedere citrus vodka, marinated berries, house made sour, and Chandon Brut. This drink was so sweet and very cute! The staff were all friendly, and all the bartenders attended to you whether they were serving you or not. We had a very nice time. I’m looking forward to returning for dinner.

Danovel Tolli: This was my first time Dining at Ocean Prime. Taking my lady out for her birthday. It was nothing more than a top tier experience. The waiter Briyan was awesome..extremely friendly, warm, and you just knew he enjoyed serving us and you felt it everytime he visited the table. The first thing I tasted was the Surf and Turf Scallop, and prime rib..Amazingly tender and full of flavor. Nothing more than immaculate. The Lamb Chops were the best I have ever tasted from anywhere. Prepare to be here for a while as they do take their time to give you an experience. I will be going back for the Private dining experience for sure.

chris chadwick: Oceans Prime was truly a great experience. The service was friendly and on top of everything very impressed for a busy place. The food was amazing. I had a 10 filet cooked medium rare minus....tender, juice and delicious. The peanut butter chocolate cake thing out of this world! Great food and wine excellent service.

eriko p: Ocean Prime was the BEST meal we had during our visit to DC. Hands DOWN the BEST!!! We were exhausted after another day of walking around the Mall and the museums and needed an oasis to sit down, relax and hydrate. We stumbled into Ocean Prime without knowing what to expect. We were seated immediately to a beautiful quiet booth. The booths on the perimeter face the street and those booths are beautiful deep blue velvet ones! ( next time I might request those! ) Our server ( tall Chinese woman) was spot on perfect! She asked if we wanted water: still, bubbly or tap. We chose bubbly and there were free refills! We drank a lot of water! She was helpful and polite in her suggestions. We started our meal with steak tartare and it was spiced and flavored beautifully! It was the best steak tartare we have had in a long time. I ordered the scallops over risotto and my husband ordered the chilean sea bass. Both dishes melted in our mouths and we were relishing each bite. The food was beautifully presented. The staff all seemed to work extremely well! That takes a lot of training and good leadership. Bravo! I saw a few business men having their lunches as well as older couples. We were not dressed in business attire, but it didn't seem to matter. Service, food and presentation were SPOT ON Amazing! Thank you Ocean Prime for making our DC lunch a wonderful relaxing delicious experience.

Love Chan: Back at it AGAIN…my Fav❣️😋

Francina Thomas: My family made reservations at this Restaurant for my birthday celebration. I loved it, felt like a Queen for the evening. Everything was wonderful from start to finish. The check in crew were friendly and professional- found our reservations and table was ready on the spot. Our waiter Alexander was superb !! He was friendly, knowledgeable on the menu, wine, sprits and dessert. His recommendations were excellent. He truly made my birthday special by treating me to my dessert. How sweet. The Food was Delicious 😋 😍!!! The prices were upscale but so was the service and food- definitely worth it. The portions were large. The variety was awesome. We tried a bottle of Resling wine from a California venue which was light, fruity and semi sweet - just like i like it. There were 6 of us coupled off with a meal price around $150.00 to $250.00 per couple. I will definitely keep this place in mind for a return visit.

Ron Paige: Amazing Experience. Sofia was an amazing Server. Professionalism personified❤ Dining Manager Ebony was amazing and checked on us along with the Sou Chef. It lives up to the hype. BEST Calamari EVER! Platter Up the snapper with a lobster tail and filet mignon. Thank me later.❤💯 The East Coast Oysters are Amazing. Thank you. Worth every dollar spent and wonder staff. THANK YOU for a great BDAY and sublime Dining experience.

Monica R S: Berries and Bubbles cocktail was soooo good and it was fun to watch the bubbles. The Prime Roll was delicious, good texture, fish was fresh. The Lobster Tails were perfectly cooked and it’s a big portion! The carrot cake is good but it’s a tad too sweet for my taste, it is a big portion so it’s good to share. Our server Derek was very attentive and friendly.

1789 Restaurant & Bar: what do users think?


Stefan Tobler: Absolutely superb. Delicious food, excellent service, warm and cozy dining room. We were a bit under dressed, definitely a sports coat kind of restaurant. If you are looking for a nice meal this is a place I would go back too. Great job 1789.

Andrew Bogdan: Had an excellent time grabbing dinner here! The food was absolutely amazing, and the art on the walls was fun to look at and made for great conversation. I ordered the eggplant and butternut squash soup. It was literally the best soup I have ever had in my life, absolutely amazing. The wine list was excellent as well. Really recommend for a private romantic date night!

Georgia Hensley: We had such a great experience visiting 1789. The food was delicious, the waiters were pleasant and the manager was so knowledgeable. He knew all the history and even about the Exorcist house and steps directly across the street. We enjoyed short ribs and sirloin, my brother in law had the halibut, we also tried the lobster and the octopus starters. They were so good. They even called our cab for us. We will def. return on our next visit to Georgetown. 1789 is located at 126 36 St.NW 20007

Norma Del Carmen: Last night in Georgetown and we wanted to try this Michelin star restaurant as a treat To end our thanksgiving weekend and 1789 Restaurant did not disappoint, it blew our tastes buds away! The butter squash soup we started out with was so amazing that we knew the rest of the dishes would get better and better. Be sure to take a video of how they present the soup…it happened so fast, great presentation. I had the brioche halibut and My tastebuds were just in heaven. Our bellies were full but we still wanted to enjoy the evening w deserts and it did not disappoint as well! Service was excellent ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ And the food was delivered quick. This is my new favorite restaurant in Georgetown by far and looking forward to coming back again!
Response: Thank you so much, Norma! We appreciate your positive feedback about your experience. We take pride in serving our customers and hope to see you again soon!

Gabriela Frank: One of the best fine dining experiences available in DC. Do not hesitate to visit for one of the best dining experiences of your life! Every single bite did not disappoint and you just can't go wrong with whatever you order. We started with the first round of drinks (Cardamom Bee's Knees & Brown Butter Old Fashioned) and knew in that moment we would be in for a special treat. We split the Ravioli dish, which had exceptionally seasoned mushrooms you could almost mistake them for beef. We ordered the Halibut and Duck dishes for main courses and every aspect of the dish was just pure slices of heaven on a fork. To top it off, we finished with the chocolate dessert and wished we had more room to eat more and drink more! High recommend for someone celebrating a special occasion, or want to impress someone with exceptional fine dining.

Tucker Jones: Excellent food and fabulous service. Such a great dining experience, one of the best in DC!! Desserts topped off an amazing dinner snd they were off the charts!
Response: Thank you, Tucker!

Wendy Reynolds: Great food in this restaurant. Staff was very polite and cooperative.
Response: Thank you so much, Wendy! We hope to see you again soon.

Marilyn Breedlove: For over 20 years I have enjoyed the 1789 restaurant. It had been about a year since I had dined here last. I'm very sorry to say they are not what they once were. My husband and I took my daughter for her 21st birthday dinner. At the end of the meal my husband and I agreed it was the worst $400 meal we had ever had. The plates looked lovely.. The best part of my meal was the bread and the very delicious butternut squash soup. The menu said sea scallops. And I was served bay scallops. The sauteed mushrooms were completely uncooked.

Katie Greener: Food was amazing and perfectly portioned! So much that we had to take home leftovers! Wonderful date night spot. Drinks were phenomenal as well…combinations complimented each other so nicely. We ended our meal with sharing the cheesecake with some coffee and couldn’t have been more satisfied.
Response: Thank you, Katie!

Ines R: This restaurant is located in Georgetown a couple of blocks up the hill from the main M street. The restaurant is quaint with low beamed ceilings and cobblestone floors. The walls were covered in hand drawn pictures of the Washington monument and other historical figures. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu. I had mine with the wine pairing for $165. Without the wine pairing it was $105. The food was good however I can't say it was great. None of the dishes really wowed me that is the reason for the 4 rating. I expected the food to wow. On several dishes I had to add salt and pepper. My favorite part of the meal was the ice cream topped with gold flakes. The wine pairings were very good. I would go again but I would order from the main menu versus the tasting menu. The service was impeccable!!!! From the valet to the servers. This is a romantic restaurant, a place for an intimate dining experience.

Estuary: what do users think?


Allison Giddens: Hotel food can be hit or miss. This place (inside the Conrad) was impressive. (And the Caribbean Sunset and Smash Burger are both delicious!) Service great. Ambience good. They don't treat "Party of one's" like piranhas. :) (Although, I suppose with random travelers, they're used to it)

Abi Maghamfar: Very nice atmosphere. The restaurant is located inside Conrad by Hilton hotel. Enjoyed cocktails at the restaurant and ordered room service for dinner.

Agnes Hermoso: Best place in DC, or probably one of the best in US. Staffs are very attentive too. Dinner - lamb chops and ribeye Brunch - French Toast and Benny We’ll surely come back here!

Justin Sison: The food was merely okay. For the price, I was expecting to be a bit more impressed. The bigger issue however were the oysters. My girlfriend was particularly interested ordering a half dozen, but we were told they had ran out for the night. That's disappointing, but understandable. A table of four diners were then seated next to us and proceeded to order the same. When they were informed of the lack of oysters, one of the ladies expressed her disappointment and stated that was one of the reasons why they specifically chose this restaurant tonight, exactly as my girlfriend did less than 10 minutes prior. The waiter said he'll ask the chef if anything can be done. Towards the end of our meal, the waiter appeared with oysters for their table only. What the hell? Where did these "out of stock" oysters magically come from and why weren't we offered any? Definitely never going back.

Greg Weiss: Not too great but not horrible. Would normally give 3 stars but the price brings it down to two given the cost cutting measures I'll describe below. Their quality seems to have gone significantly downhill. I wish I took a picture of my burger because it's amazing how much worse/cheaper it is than the old one which is pictured in a review. It's one patty instead of two, has bib lettuce instead of an interesting green, and has thin microwavable bacon instead of a thick slab of pork belly / face bacon.

Mahsa Lotfi: Great service and amazing bar. The food good too. We had the Bobo chicken, the seabass and clams and a range of appetizers and all were tasty and well cooked. Kudos to the chefs.

Crystal McNeill: Absolutely wonderful!!!! One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in DC in the short 4 years I’ve lived here. This coming from a girl who’s first job at 15 was working in a 5 star restaurant. Staff are very attentive and can answer all your questions. You can tell they want you to enjoy your experience. I came in as a solo diner because I love enjoying elevated restaurants whether there is or is not a friend available to join. I told the hostess I don’t mind sitting at the bar and she said “oh no honey you deserve a table!” Food was great! I enjoyed the lamb chops and crudo. Followed by the peach 🍑 dessert. All was delightful! I will be back,…next time with an elastic waistband.

Nara K: The taste is not bad but nothing I’ll talk about. Food presentation is not the same as you’d see on Social media. They leave out a lot of the garnishes and details that you see some of these bloggers are posting. For someone like myself, I go after seeing these posts excited to try these dishes- but when they come out looking different from what I see as advertised, I get a bit disappointment. Every customer should have a chance enjoy the same attention to detail- especially for price we pay for these foods.

George Junca: Outstanding food, had high expectations going in being Voltaggio brothers and they were met if not surpassed. Beautiful space, friendly and helpful service although a bit slow (lunch service). Want to come back for dinner. The crab roll was tasty and definitely the prettiest one I’ve ever ordered.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, George! We hope to see you again soon!

R Gee: Are here 3 mornings in a row. Absolutely fantastic in every way! Thanks for the stellar service and fantastic gourmet food! Top notch! Guillermo was A+++! Definitely a 5 star experience.

The Occidental: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kiffa Shirley: An amazing foodie experience. The personal experience from ALL the staff from the moment we walked in made for the start of an truly special anniversary dinning experience. Well worth the $$$. Jackets are not required for gentlemen, but I was also one of the very few without. The food was delicious and the photos don’t do them Justice. The neighboring tables were engaging and open for menu suggestions back and forth. And I think we saw a notable or too if your into the DC scene.

Andras Heczey: This is an outstanding restaurant within the heart of Washington DC. The venue was renovated during the pandemic, has a brand new interior with nice noise dampening ceiling panels which certainly keep the ambiance. Service is exceptional with knowledgeable waiting staff. The food is Italian inspired modern dishes including refined selection of pastas, octopus with apple puree, perfectly prepared beef tenderloin, squid ink infused risotto with grilled calamari etc. Their wine list is dominated by an Italian selection complimented with Californian wines. From their deserts, the panna cotta is exceptional. Not cheap, but for this experience, it is worth it.

Naile Ruiz: 10/10 Service is solid, the waiters are very attentive and want to make sure you're always content. The dry-aged ribeye was delicious, the sauce was full of flavor. I wish it would have had more of the potato puree to add to the steak, but overall really enjoyed my dish. Inside decor is very pretty. Great location!

Stefan Tobler: A wonderful dining experience, excellent service and atmosphere. Food is delicious, you can’t go wrong with whatever you choose. A memorable spot, highly recommended.

Gregory Leung: This was the best meal in recent memory. Risotto squid ink and grilled calamari was sublime. Roasted cauliflower amazing. Jay was fabulously knowledgeable about the wine and food selection. Truly an impressive and memorable evening.

Scott Matus: Needed a place to go for a pre-show meal and TOSCA did not disappoint. Everything from the food to the service and ambiance was excellent. The grilled Bronzino was especially delicious and perfectly cooked.

John Whyman: Took a chance on the short rib Agnolotti pasta dish and it was way better than expected. ☆☆☆☆☆ Tasty. Rich. Can't say enough good things about it. Tosca is the greatest restaurant in DC. ☆☆☆☆

Michelle Alcanter: Great service, great food, great portion! Overall very pleasant experience. The ribeye steak was fantastic, very tender with a great onion sauce. I also like the half pasta portion so that you have room to try other things!

Grace Vi: Ate here, at the bar, on our last evening in DC. It was a nice end to a great visit. Tosca is run like a tight ship. The food was exquisite; the wine selected by our waiter was excellent. The Garganelli was divine. Craving it as I'm writing about it now! Thank you to the staff for such attentive and friendly service. We felt pampered. We shall return!!

Agustina Fainguersch: Absolutely one of the best meals I have ever had. We ordered the prosciutto appetizer, the spaghetti, the agnolotti, and the tiramisu. Left absolutely satisfied with the food and service.

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

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

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

Jennifer Driggers Driggers Group Real Estate: Our family ate here for New Year's Eve 2021 on our trip to D.C. We thoroughly enjoyed the food the atmosphere and the service. The Wagyu steak was definitely worth the money. The lobster mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes were great along with the Bacon and sau'teed shrimp appetizers. For desert definitely must try the warm butter cake. Wish we had a Mastro's closer to home. We will definitely go back!!

Mary McKay: We couldn’t have chosen a better establishment to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. From the food to the service, everything was exceptional. The service size of everything is huge! You could definitely share every course and spend half the money…or if your like us, we enjoy the left overs the best day 😍.

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

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

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

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

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

Charlie Palmer Steak: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Firefly: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rose's Luxury: what do users think?


Mikayla Rose: This was our first time at a Michelin star restaurant and it was the most delicious and romantic dinner I’ve ever had. My husband and I went for my birthday dinner and it was so special. Our waiter, Ramsey, made the experience so personal and he was amazing! This was hands down the best service I’ve ever received at a restaurant from the moment we walked in until we left. Since it was my birthday, we were given a gift of a recipe and the ingredients we can make at home, as well as a raspberry tart with a candle! I’m incredibly impressed and will be returning. 10/10 recommend. Also, for the meal and service we received it was so worth the money and very reasonably price.

Jessie Castner: Amazing experience! All the food was delicious! We had 4 people and got one one of each dish. We were given a gift of the "Strawberry Spaghetti", which to be honest if I saw it on the menu I wouldn't order but it was one of the best dishes I had. My personal favorite was the Asian- Italian fusion spaghetti. My dessert was the Vietnamese Coffee Caramel Coconut Crumble Mochi Brown Butter Cake (I am in desperate need of this recipe, so good!). The service was amazing and all of the servers were so knowledgeable about what they were serving. It's definitely a great place to impress someone.

HK: Enjoyed all of the menus we ordered. Rose’s Luxury is a smart creative restaurant- not using any unheard or arcane ingredients or recipe, it effortlessly creates a new combination of tastes. The way it’s priced is hard to understand ($85 per person prefix for dinner regardless of what you order) and may make it relatively more expensive for some combination of dishes. Other than that, food and service was fantastic.

Kenny: Very nice dining experience. Only negative is the lack of ability to walk in. Orders: - soft shell crab: awesome combination of fried soft shell crab with lettuce wrap. Soft shell crab was fresh and well fried which is sometimes hard to find in the states. - steak and egg: unique presentation of tater tot in a 'race car' box. Steak is well cooked and seasoned simply. Nothing really special but this is how steak should be. - strawberry cake: good overall. Would prefer a more egg based cake. Sample: - movie theatre soup? : It was too salty. Not a big fan. Service was great overall. Would return when I'm in the area.

N -: It was my first time going to a Michelin star restaurant. The food is definitely unique, but not for people who like simple food. Not worth the price, despite its rating. The desserts are not adequately sized for a meal that big... Did not finish the dessert that served "2.9" people. The service was exceptional, with attentive staff. The upper level has a quaint dining space and the bathroom is very nice.
Response: Hi Nathalie, Thanks so much for your feedback. We would love to further discuss your experience with us and get a little more information from you. Could you please contact me directly via email: misha@rosesrestaurantgroup.com. Look forward to hearing from you!

Andrea Bronstein: This was my first time at a Michelin star restaurant and it was an amazing experience. I booked the garden bar area mistakenly thinking it was just for the garden area in general and I’d have a table so I was disappointed when I was seated but it ended up being a great experience. Josh, the bartender, was really personable and knowledgeable and my fiancé and I really enjoyed chatting with him. The food was really good, especially the steak and eggs dish.

Ryan Montoya: This meal was incredible. The English pea cake was maybe the highlight for me and I can't believe how well it traveled and presented. All the instructions were crystal clear and we had fun putting the food together. We chose this menu as we were fasting but I am very curious to try the non vegetarian option in the future. My wife and I haven't been able to get out to restaurants so this option was amazing, but I really do hope someday to experience Rose in person. Absolutely incredible service, from the responsiveness to my request to have the food delivered early (we were traveling that day) to the very friendly, accommodating and personal service of the delivery person (my wife didn't know it was a surprise, mistakenly sent the delivery person away to my work, and the delivery person followed up and realized my wife's error and still delivered the food!). I really can't ask for better service, and it makes this restaurant a true standout among our experiences dining during the pandemic.

Megan Martinez: We loved Rose’s Luxury! Our waiter was extremely nice. The whole staff was super friendly. We got to try 6 dishes since we were a party of three. The lychee salad is a must. The cabbage and chicken were also extremely delicious. We got two deserts and a single coffee French press. They brought us a special tart for my sister since it was her birthday! At the end I was so touched to get a gift at the end of the meal which was a pasta and spice set to make at home!

波。真秀ᶘ oᴥoᶅ: We reserved a table two weeks in advance, because we know how popular this place is. We enjoyed the refreshing change to casual comfort food, compared with our previous experience of haute-cuisine in Michelin star restaurants. Our server, Dominic, was very friendly and attentive. My wife's favorite dish was Seth's Fancy Fish Camp, while I liked the Cacio e Pepe Souffle. The Steak and Eggs was perfectly cooked, medium-rare, and the sidecar was a fun addition. At the beginning of the meal, we were served freshly baked madeleines, which are the best we have had in the USA.

Carolyn Zacharias: I came in nervously as a solo dinner and ate at the bar - I was immediately greeted by a warm and welcoming staff - from the host to each server explaining the dishes. John and Harley at the bar took excellent care of me through the creation of delicious drinks and perfect recommendations for food. I had the lychee and pork salad which at first glance seemed like a creation of mismatched ingredients, it was both refreshing and hearty. In addition I tried the leek pasta and the soy glazed chicken, both dishes I highly recommend as they are both comforting and creative!

The Lafayette: what do users think?


Laura Xu Chen: Second time back in DC for a weekend and we are in Hay Adams again after 10 years. The food never disappoints and in fact everything was superb! Rack of lamb and Crab gnocchi were excellent. You have to order the soufflé! The ambiance was fine dining yet the wait staff are so warm and pleasant! We stayed for a 3 hour dinner and it was a beautiful and elegant experience

Adam Galazka: Amazing restaurant located in the Hay Adams hotel. Reservations were done via Google and confirmed by the restaurant a couple days in advance. Table was ready 45 minutes in advance. Their customer service from initial greeting through the whole dinner was amazing. Very good wine menu and you also have a cocktail menu as well. We tried a mushroom soup and octopus for appetizers. Ordered chicken breast and bronzini for main course. For our dessert we had creme Brule. Everything was amazing and tasty. We will definitely come back.

波。真秀ᶘ oᴥoᶅ: We went to the Lafayette for breakfast. Our waiter, Emmanuel, was extremely friendly, humorous and attentive. The French Toast came with hot maple syrup and the Lafayette Eggs Royale were accompanied by hollandaise sauce, which blended well with the rich salmon and eggs.

Shawni McGraw: We decided on this restaurant to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary because of the spectacular views and ambience. When we found out that the view we were seeking was not available, the manager went above and beyond to get a private tour of just that view. He wanted our day to be special and he did just that. The food was fabulous and everyone is so customer focused. The mood was romantic with the live piano player and decor. I highly recommend this restaurant for your special day.

CRPARK LLC: Fine dining at its best. After graduation dinner with great down town DC vibe. Service was superior and the environment, on point.

Jenovie Yoka: The food was really good and tasty. The prices are also fair but I did not like the service at all. Furthermore, it was simply awful! The servers that had us that night( a man and a lady) were just not professional and welcoming at all. The were working like they were forced to take care of us. We reserved the private room for a special occasion (my sister engagement) and those two servers made us have a very bad experience. Especially the lady when it can to the moment to pay the restaurant bill. In the other hand the meals and the drinks were simply amazing!

Michael O'Reilly: **FUTURE VISITORS: THEY NO LONGER DO ROOFTOP DINING** This is a fantastic restaurant in a fantastic hotel, but they no longer do anything on the roof. The roof is now reserved for events and such, which is truly disappointing. What’s the point in going anymore? The ambience of the restaurant is nice, but not nice enough to justify going. The food is great, but there are better, cheaper options throughout DC. It is all fairly expensive as well, and for what? One of the main reasons to go was for the wonderful view, but if I no longer have access to that, then the Lafayette is no longer a #1 choice.

Stacy: Good but too expensive. The servers were all so friendly and helpful. It was unbelievably fancy. You are clearly paying for the experience.

Eduardo Rukos: Beautiful & very well executed French inspired menu with a lot of highlights. The staff was amazing and the desserts are pieces of art.

Mark Blanchard: Hands down the most beautiful venue in DC (at least when it was up on the top floor through the pandemic). Great food, great view from the top floor, and friendly staff.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We then had the lasagna and shrimp & scallop risotto. Both were cooked to perfection. Finished the night with an amazing teramisu. Don’t even question if this place is worth it. Just go!
Response: We are overjoyed to hear that you had such a wonderful experience! We hope to see you again soon so we can contribute to more memorable moments for you.

Gary Smith: restaurant was very pretty and service was good. Came with a large group and we shared somethings so ended up trying a large portion of the menu. the mozzarella and tomato appetizer had very mediocre mozzarella. The lasagna was okay, but not significantly better than a frozen oven ready lasagna. the sweet gnocchi and rabbit gnocchi were good, and the portions for the rabbit gnocchi were very generous, but not out standing. the calamari was good, but not exceptional in anyway. The brussel sprout appetizer was better than other dishes. The filet filled tortellini was by far the winning dish for the night. in the deserts we tried coffee ice cream, tiramisu, and the chocolate mouse. the mouse was very good, and on the thick side which I enjoy. the tiramisu and ice cream were good, but not noteworthy. there was out door dining as well as two floors of indoor dining. bathrooms are on the second floor only accessible by stairs that were moderately difficult to navigate so not a handicap friendly location. I would come back for a moderately nice dinner event, but would not go out of my way to eat here.
Response: Gary, Thank you for leaving us a review. We are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy a few items from our menu. At Floriana, we are dedicated to making finely crafted dishes and are proud of what our team has created.

Ammar Nahari: The location, service and restaurant in general are all wonderful. Maybe we were just unlucky with our orders. We got the Burrata appetizer with cold sweet potato soup and truffles, I didn't like it much to be honest, and I couldn't taste the truffle flavor. The waiter is really nice and he brought a balsamic glaze which made it a little better. We also ordered lamb gnocchi, it was delicious but different from any Italian food I've had. It had some bitterness to it that can be balanced with some lemon juice. The shrimp and scallop risotto was really really good. It reminded me of a restaurant in Fano, Italy. The truffle flavor is just perfect. Lastly, we got a pistachio Gelato to go. It was creamy and delicious. In general we were happy with the visit, but next time we want to try their lasagna, whole fish, and caprese. Those were the waiter's recommendations.
Response: Ammar, We greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave us this review. It is wonderful to hear you were happy with your experience overall and we will absolutely take into consideration your comments in regards to your dishes, as guest satisfaction is our top priority. We hope to serve you again soon! -The Floriana Family

Heather Walker: Excellent food! Our server, Kyle was great and very attentive! A bit cramped inside and noisy but otherwise all was great!
Response: Heather, Thank you kindly for the 4-star rating! We're glad to hear that our wait staff did an excellent job. We hope to serve you again! -The Floriana Family

Hayden Clay: I came for a Sunday Brunch. A lot of us ordered the chicken biscuit because I remember it being yummy pre-pandemic. Either I have short term memory loss or something is going very wrong in the kitchen. All of our biscuits were burnt black on the bottom and lacked all flavor. The "fried" chicken was not breaded and so over cooked that it was hard to bite through. The piece of chicken was absolutely tiny (see picture). The "fried egg" was scrambled eggs thrown on the tasteless biscuit. So disappointed. Truly inedible. See pictures for tiny overcooked, not fried chicken. And burnt bottom.
Response: Hayden, We greatly apologize that your brunch was not as enjoyable as you remember having previously. It is a priority to serve fresh and delicious dishes to each guest on every occasion they dine with us. We would appreciate hearing more about your experience and discussing how we can make this right for you. Please send me an email at jamie@florianarestaurant.com at your earliest convenience. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again. -The Floriana Family

Timothy Jackson: I recently visited Floriana to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was my first time visiting but it won't be the last. Everything was perfect from the ambiance, the service, not to mention the food. I especially loved the mussels. They should seriously take the mussel broth, add some ramen noodles and they would have a great starter. You won't be disappointed.
Response: Timothy, Thank you for the feedback and for letting us celebrate your special day with you! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your birthday experience with us and we hope to serve you again very soon! - The Floriana Family

BOURBON STEAK: what do users think?


S. Renee Weaks: Great service from Aaron and the entire waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. The steak, duck fries and Cocktails were superb; the shrimp cocktail was good, but a bit overcooked prior to chilling. I would pass on the Mac and cheese. I would definitely return in the future for other menu options and the ambiance.

Mike P: Great steak and the sides like the truffle macaroni and cheese as well as the asparagus were perfect compliments. Expect to pay the price for the food you'll get here, but worth it if you're looking for a good cut of steak. The service was also very friendly and patient with our group while we met with customers. The only thing I feel they could improve would be the atmosphere. Seems a tad dated, but overall great location being in Georgetown. Also though, that means you'll want to come on a weeknight for parking close by, valet, or ride-share.

Tamara Lee: My brother celebrated his birthday at Bourbon Steak. With the help of Jose and Dillon I was able to coordinate a bourbon flight experience for him to enjoy. I highly recommend this establishment. With Dillon and Jose’s help you will not be disappointed with the experience and service you will receive at Bourbon Steak.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Had an incredible dinner here, and the entire evening was epic from start to finish. We grabbed a couple of drinks at the bar. Highly recommend the Yo, You Got Beef: Wagyu fat-washed bourbon with Cocchi vermouth, served smoked (it's a high end Manhattan). Their duck fat fries with a trio of seasonings and sauces are great to nosh on, too. When we sat down at our table, we kicked it off with the tuna tartare, smoked bone marrow, shrimp cocktail, and the Caeser salad as starters and then for our mains, we indulged in 4 oz of the sanuki A5 (epic) and the 7x ribeye and the snake river farms filet, seared, sliced and served to perfection. Incredible.

Mark Blanchard: Good steaks and great service. Fries were pretty average at best. Our steak knives were dull as butter knives. We asked for replacements, and we got equally dull knives. Good thing the steaks are tender, but not a good steaks for a steakhouse not to invest in new knives or at least sharpen them. Dessert was amazing!

Tim Smith: Went here for a special dinner and wasn't disappointed. The staff was overwhelmingly friendly and provided truly next level service and care. I loved and appreciated the extra complimentary side's that were delivered with our meal. The food was prepared exactly as ordered and was delicious. I will return and not only when it's a special occasion. Do note and be prepared that this is not an inexpensive experience. You will pay for top quality food and the wide selection of liquor and wine. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

R W: One of the best brunches in town. Professional and attentive service. If you can think it, they will prepare it.

Moises Romero: I brought my wife for her birthday. Truly a lovely evening. There was an unforeseeable incident that required a lot of attention from the staff that held our dinner back a bit. Even though it’s understandable to focus on someone’s health aside from serving a table, the staff took responsibility for the delay on our food and service and offered a great amount of remedy. We were surprised with complimentary appetizers and enjoyed every bite. The steak was amazing, we both had the Australian Ribeye. We left stuffed and happy. A great restaurant with extremely attentive and helpful staff. The cocktails were also great. I had two of the autumn cocktails and they were both great. We will definitely return

moshix: Went to this incredibly noisy (and very dimly lit) restaurant around 8pm. Good service. A bit presumptuous at the maitre d’ station (not sure why..), but the waiter was very nice. The steaks are very good quality. The fois gras appetizer is really good. What kills this restaurant for me is the incredible noise that makes it hard to have a conversation, the speed at which they want you in and out, and mostly the crazy crazy prices. $400 for two people with only a glass of wine each. It’s not worth it. Go somewhere else to eat a good steak and pay normal prices instead.

Jassett M: I have only gone to Bourbon Steak for their cocktails, but never for food. So this was a first for me and it did not disappoint. I had brunch with a few of my friends and everything on the menu sounded delicious. I decided to order the King Crab Benedict and it was absolutely delicious. My friend had the burger and it was very hard not to order that for myself because I heard so much about in the past. But that gives me another reason to return. Even the side dishes were great, truffle macaroni & cheese, sauteed kale & broccolini. Finally, we decided to share the desserts..the Brioche Doughnut & Pecan Sticky Bun and they were both out of this world. I was extremely pleased with the whole experience ...from the ambience, the wait staff & the food. 5 stars.
