Roof Terrace Restaurant: what do users think?


Jeff Luttrell: RTR is a pretty good place for dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center. The restaurant has the classic aesthetic of the Kennedy Center with beautiful views from the terrace outside the restaurant. The staff were friendly enough though our waiter didn't talk with us too much. Food service was quick which is to be expected for those going to performances. The quality of the food is okay. All of our entrees were hot but just okay taste wise. Pretty good selection for vegetarians and the fish choices are nice too! We'll come back and try it again as we go to the KC often.

Ron Milkowski: I have never been to the Kennedy Center and had no idea that there even was a restaurant. What a very nice dining experience. Santo our waiter was very knowledgeable with the food and drinks. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Even if you are not going to an event I highly recommend checking it out.

Anusha Chatterjee: Wonderful bar service! The food was so good. Had the tuna carpaccio and the salmon. Both were absolutely perfect! Lovely seasonal Cocktails. Perfect stop before or after the show. The bar has the full menu, so no reservations were needed. Lovely intimate vibe.

Craig Herrick: We’ve been here a number of times over the years though this was the first visit in two years. The Terrace has upped their game. My lamb chops and wife’s fillet would go over well in any finer local venue. The service was prompt and professional and based around our show time. Terrace maintains most of its vintage (60’s) vibe which is what I like about it.

Stu: Read some negative reviews before going to the Roof Terrace restaurant, and had some concerns. I will say that this was a lovely place and a rather elegant atmosphere. The food was fine- especially the seasoned fries. Delicious! We each had a fish dish, which at nearly forty dollars each I found to be drastically overpriced. Even at ten dollars less it would have been overpriced. Yet the meals were tasty, though not very filing. They came with the tiniest bit of vegetables. The service was excellent, and my concerns about inattentive service or being rushed were proven false. In all, it is a very nice place to go that is the ultimate in convenience if you are going to a Kennedy Center performance. But you pay for that convenience in very high restaurant prices. Would I return? Probably, but this is not a place I'd be able to afford very often.

Myrna Linzy: Very good. Waitress was very good in helping me with which meal. Picked my drinks. Awesome place.

Catina Carter: The food and service was outstanding. Wonderful place to have a beautiful experience of class. The views were wonderful as well.

Mary Robinson: Wonderful dinner before a show. Cant beat the views! Professional service throughout the meal.

Veronica Coleman: Wonderful evening at the Kennedy Center and dining at the Roof Terrace Restaurant. Great food. Great music.

Phil Cooke: Great setting at the Kennedy Center, ideal for pre show dinner. Service was excellent; overall, food was very good. Our party of four got fish, with the bass being the best, by far. Others, trout and salmon, were just okay. It is a little pricey, but the setting, service and convenience make it worth it.

Sequoia DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CIRCA at Foggy Bottom: what do users think?


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

Kelly Crenshaw: We were going to another spot and one of my group said "what about here" as we came out of metro. They had a large party cancel so we were able to get in. Everything was great. Food was fantastic and we all were happy leaving. The mac and cheese might be there best I have ever had. I been thinking about and I can not remember a better bowl of mac and cheese... it was that good.
Response: Hi Kelly! Thanks so much for dining with us and providing your feedback. I am happy that you stumbled upon us and even happier that your group enjoyed everything - especially the mac and cheese. I hope that you will find us again in the future! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

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

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

Jessica R: We decided to come here on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We came for more of a late lunch/early dinner and even though we did not have reservations they still were able to seat us. They did have to seat us in their outdoor area, which was a little chilly but perfectly fine. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The food was great! I got the blackened chicken mango salad and my mom got the barbecue chicken flatbread. Both were very good
Response: Hi Jessica, We are so glad that you found us and even happier to hear that you enjoyed your experience! Hopefully we can host you inside next time! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Ed Tracy: Wow! First visit and it was quite memorable. Jambalaya entree Most Excellent. The chef worked some magic to get the best of the shrimp into the sauce. Butterflying the shrimp was also great for bit size. Brussels sprouts app, Most Excellent. Maybe best I've ever had. We got the bacon on the side. Crispy yet surrounded by soft blue cheese and a slightly sweet vinaigrette sauce. Vegetarian wife loved it too. Pumpkin ravioli were really good, a bit too sweet for my taste. Mash potatoes were good. Ask for table bread and butter. OMG, their house herb butter is fluffy and delicious. Also loved their custom concoction drinks. The Black Manhattan and the Maple Old Fashioned were smooth and delish! (the Maple OF is girl-friendly)
Response: Hi Ed, We are so happy you found us and enjoyed your first dining experience! Thank you for your support; we look forward to hosting you next time. Cheers! Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

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

Ron Milkowski: Stopped in for a quick drink. Great bartender. Seems like a college crowd. Would definitely be back for dinner. Recommended.
Response: Hi Ron! Thanks for stopping in! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our bartender. We are looking forward to your next visit for dinner! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Jessica Morales: This lovely corner is perfect, the menu is not big, but it has a good selection of different options. We had as an appetizer tuna poke nachos, the flavor combination and the fresh tuna was so delicious, and as a entree jambalaya, the spicy was on point and the penne pasta cooked to perfection, my husband ordered a braised short rib, the meat was so tender, the mash potatoes has this smooth texture so perfect. Thank you Michael, great service.
Response: Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for your rating! We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with us. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon. Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

Tran Kim-Senior: My husband and I came here with some friends before going to a show at the Kennedy Center. The food was good--he had rainbow trout and I had blackened salmon and our friends each had burgers. The ambiance is energetic and on the louder side which was fine for our purposes but if you're looking for a romantic, more quiet ambiance, I wouldn't recommend this spot. The bar menu looked good and varied though we're not big drinkers so we can't provide any feedback on the drinks. There was also a nice patio if you're looking for good outdoor seating.
Response: Hi Tran, Thank you so much for dining with us and providing your feedback. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your experience. We hope that you will visit us again soon! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)

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.

La Vie: what do users think?


Olivia M. Wilson: I know there’s mixed reviews about this place but I had a great experience. Our waiter took very good care of us and overall enhanced the dining experience. - The food was a 10/10 - The atmosphere and ambiance was amazing. - The view of the water gave it a very elegant vibe towards fine dining. Would definitely recommend for a date night or special occasion

Asim Soofi: Every single dish we ate was absolutely delicious. I would trust the executive chef at La Vie with any meal. There is something completely unique, yet so familiar with the variety of ingredients in each dish that transports you back to reminisce the first time you experienced it, wrapping you in a maternal blanket of bygone home cooked holiday meals. It has the luxury of comfort food with an eclectic mix transported from Mediterranean, Latin America, French, and Italian flair. Blends of sweet and spice came together in each rich bite. Vegetables and meats were perfectly prepared and plated. Fast on the day you go...you will enjoy every bite and leave happy.

Arvind Prabhu: Nice views, cool vibe, good drinks and decent sides. But you'll pay for it. The sangria was great and so were the brussel sprouts; charred and doused with a sweet and slightly sour honey based sauce sprinkled with pomegranate kernels. That dish is likely THE must have at La Vie. Unfortunately when we went it was over crowded and stuffy, seems like their AC was on the fritz

Leemu Kufuor: Cute and Instagramable! Make sure you dress up! I enjoyed the food and drinks at La Vie but the customer service left more to be desired. The staff at the front when overwhelmed are not friendly or welcoming and they seem to need more attendants to serve the volume of guests that arrive around dinner. I would go back though, the food is good and the drinks are strong.

yelena antonela: Beautiful place, stuff Is very friendly Igloos is very creative warm and cozy! Food was delicious 😋 I order La Vie Caesar salad , Atlantic salmon and cauliflower couscous, Brussels sprouts it’s was so delicious you can feel so much love that food have 👌🏼🙏🏻 Dessert is yummy my favorite was a custard light and crispy. whole experience was Amazing !!

Kev- keepingitreal: We love the hospitality at La Vie. Our hoist was very generous and attentive, our food was hot, tasty and flavorful. We ordered shrimp, Lamb Chops, Truffle Mac & Cheese, Roasted Chicken with Mashed Potatoes. Underground parking garage is available for a fee.

Tasha Fuller: Overrated. When you pay more you expect more. The ambiance was amazing but the food wasn’t on the same level. The lobster was overcooked and the Risotto lacked flavor, no matter how much salt and pepper I added. The best part of my meal was the French fries and Brussel Sprouts.

Amanda (WhatsDaHype): Beautiful restaurant! The view of the wharf is very pretty on a sunny day. Friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant is pricey but the food and drinks weren’t over the top amazing. I truly appreciated our waiter making sure we enjoyed our meals but the items we got were just good. The presentation of the drinks were nice. We didn’t like the salmon and the waiter exchanged that meal for the lobster ravioli. It was tasty. We also tried the roasted chicken. The combination of all the ingredients was flavorful and hearty. The fried cauliflower was lightly fried but lacked flavor.

Anakaren Cruz: The service is really great and the aesthetic is beyond expectations. The restaurant is on the higher end and pricier side. We spent around $450 for 3 people. I highly recommend the lamb chops and the cotton candy baked Alaska for dessert.

Boss Marius: Mixed feelings about this place, it’s good but I do not think the price is justified. The ambiance is lovely, it’s by the water and the brunch is good, but…You reserve your time slot in advance and still have to wait to be seated. The cost of the brunch if you decide to go for bottomless food and mimosas for two people comes up to $275.

Café Riggs: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

Наталья Устименко: very nice interior, the atmosphere has a good time while eating, the hostess was very nice. the pros end there. we ordered Eggs Royale, I really wanted to eat hash brown, in the end they brought us a dish with overcooked potatoes (there were fewer potatoes than fried crust), very salty salmon ( there were a lot) and a salad with CHILI PEPPER. I can’t eat spicy at all, this ingredient was not indicated in the description of the dish. when I mentioned this to the waiter, he replied that in the US everywhere it is better to ask if there is a spicy dish, especially in Mexican restaurants. But this place is not a Mexican restaurant! I did not receive an apology, only a mild response that they say it was my fault that I did not know in advance. in my opinion, when you pay $21 for a dish, you can hope that after it you will not have heartburn and feel unwell (I had). too bad breakfast in such a well appointed place could have been very nice. but he wasn't

Christina Zizzo: Love the vibe. European feel with European service... Slightly slower so don't go in a rush but the staff is so accommodating and the food is delicious and fresh and you get great portions. Favorite cafe in DC! Inside and out is Instagram worthy too 📸

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

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

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

Eean Levin: A beautiful property and close location to all of the major DC attractions. You won't find and cheap eats or drinks here but the food is fantastic and wonderful service and ambiance.

QDior: I had a great experience here. My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary. The around the world food package was great. It was a new and fun experience. I recommend sitting outside during good weather. Our server was knowledgeable and very nice. At the end of the date my boyfriend and I were full and satisfied. I would come back here again.

Rebecca Kaufman: One of my favorite places to eat in DC with an ever changing menu filled with foods from all across the globe. Always some new and interesting to try here. Not a place for picky eaters but if you love to try new foods you've possibly never even heard of, this is the restaurant for you! Also, they have some really good and interesting cocktails, one of which was a dill infused vodka martini.

Natasha Hansen: We did the around the world breakfast for $30 a person. So good! Very generous portions. Not pictured was the delicious chicken that comes as part of the breakfast and fantastic French press of coffee we enjoyed. Great service. Excited to go back and try more!

Nichole B: This place is such a vibe! My husband I were just passing by and saw the outdoor seating. We didn’t see the name of the spot but when we went inside the decor, music, and aroma was just perfect! So we sat at the bar and ordered the Spicy Bag and a few drinks. Food was delicious and E the bartender kept the drinks flowing! Great day vibe and I can only imagine if at night! Can’t wait to go back!

Fiorella Hidalgo: Coming here was one of the best meals I ever had but one of the worst experiences I ever had since I moved to the DMV area. Went a Wednesday around 7PM to celebrate my birthday with my mom and grandma. Our server was amazingly friendly and attentive and so the front desk people. I’m taking a star because of security reasons, that day we sat in the outdoor tables. When we were about to get the last part of our Vegetarian Tour of the World course (couldn’t taste the dessert hahah) a guy came to our table and stole my grandmas purse like it was nothing, I ran with high heels in order to catch him screaming for help but nothing really (besides another guy that was eating with his girlfriend next to our table). The server told us the check was going to be for free, which we were thankful because it wasn’t really the server or the chefs fault for security reasons. Everything was delicious! No complaints on their food. Their butternut squash was so creamy and flavorful! Their hot cocktail was out of the world!! Please add some security cameras around, at least for the people that dine outdoors during night! Or close the space so it’s harder for robbers to step in your cart area please m!! Personal recommendation, please dine indoors!!!!

Sadhana G: We got a gift coupon from our friend for our wedding anniversary at this fine dining restaurant. We were excited to try out the brunch menu named ‘Flavours of the world’ which had a unique mix of food. We were very tempted to try out the Georgian famous dish ‘Khachapuri’ and the waitress mixed the eggs in the dish in front of us on the flatbread. It was a different art form to experience. I also enjoyed the Shakshuka as part of the four course meal. The chicken kabob was juicy and delicious and the cutlery had beautiful patterns. We finished it off with a chocolate cake dessert. The food was flavorful but we were slightly disappointed with the available options on the menu for brunch as it was not customizable. The seating & ambience was average as it was just a tiny building converted into a restaurant. Vibe was good though. A place for a different feeling for food!

Megha Fernandes: I love Compass Rose — I used to come here monthly, if not bi-weekly. The dishes are so interesting, and the concept is really cool. The atmosphere is unique and funky yet cozy, and the service is always genuine, friendly, and fun. But the past few times I’ve been a little disappointed with a few food items (this hurts me to write!). While some dishes like the khachapuri will always be a knockout, the patatas bravas tasted off and the chicken skewers were just so so — previously two of my favorites. I’ll still come back because the changing menu leads to getting to try new dishes, but unfortunately the last couple times haven’t measured up to what this amazing restaurant used to be.

Christian Homme: The Tour of the World is an amazing experience. Each dish was better than the last and it all came together in a stunning sampling of food from all over. Great portions, almost counts finish some dishes but they were so good we powered through haha. The music and atmosphere was perfect too. Highly recommend.

Lawrence Whitney: Tried the world tour dinner option and the food was phenomenal! Had a couple things that didn’t make for a completely amazing experience though. 1. Hidden 8% service fee. If you’re going to have a fee for the back of house, totally fine, but at least tell me about it. If I didn’t look at the itemized receipt behind the signed bill I wouldn’t have known about it at all. I’ll happily pay more per meal if it means the BOH gets more! But don’t try to sneak in this fee. 2. Maybe our server was just having an off day, but he did not seem pleased with us or any of the other tables he was serving, totally stoic face and would just put the food on the table. Whatever, didn’t really think much of it. Until I the table next to us ordered the same multiple course meal and their server talked about each food as it was brought out, giving it a little background. Maybe that wasn’t standard and their server was going above and beyond, but maybe at least a little something between these two extremes would have made this “world tour” really pop.

Josh Axelrod: Boy, do they know what they're doing at Compass Rose. Delightful and quirky ambiance aside (absolutely perfect for a more adventurous date night) the food is spot-on. The around-the-world menu and accoutrement is no gimmick. Diners are truly made to feel like they're on a journey, with Georgian-style filled bread (khachapuri) and an Irish "spice bag" of fried chicken thigh to boot.

Iron Gate Restaurant: what do users think?


Tai Tran: Let me first start off by saying I came to this restaurant from my stylist that morning who hooked me and my date up when I asked, "what's a romantic dinner spot you'd suggest in DC?" And after ordering the delightful meal for two we were given a diverse selection of plates from the first course offerings and additional tasty extras from the chef throughout the dining experience. My hot date and I were celebrating a 6 month anniversary which in some queer relationships is either a really long time or a really short time still worth celebrating (they gave us that cute ice cream at the end). This was a wonderful meal and we were even seated right next to the inside fireplace. Bison tartare, the salads, chef extras, and of course the company of my cute partner made it one of the best meals of my vacation thus far. A great place for a classy romantic dinner.

thomas green: I absolutely loved my experience at Iron Gate last night. This was my first time dining here and I was blown away by the ambiance, service, quality of food and overall amazing location. I would absolutely recommend this as a special or romantic dinner location.

Saeed Mohebbi: Amazing service by John and even better food. The drinks were amazing and the food was absolutely incredible. We went for brunch and we were not disappointed. We can’t wait to come back for dinner. This is a must visit!

Alex Lewis: Went there for a group event. Absolutely amazing food and staff. We had the three course meal and they were hyper conscious about food restrictions and accommodated accordingly. Staff was also super personal and continuously checked on us to make sure everything was taken care of. Also highly recommend their outdoor eating option. It was very warm and beautiful. Cannot wait to come back...

Tony Bliss Taylor: 🙌🏻💥❤️💥🙌🏻 Support local!!! Iron Gate is outstanding and a MUST stop when in the DC area! The atmosphere is romantic and dimly lit! The food is incredible- the photos speak for themselves! Whatever you do in DC - eat here. “Iron Gate chef Anthony Chittum's menu is inspired by his travels through Greece and Italy, and pay homage to many of the incredible local farmers, makers and artisans that hail from the bountiful Mid-Atlantic region. “

Madelon Christiaanse: Great food. Cute location. The chefs menu is actually a great value for money, you get so much food (come hungry)! We loved everything. We requested veg and they brought out fish twice, so that was a mix up.. they were apologetic.

Bianca: This spot has me gasping for air! Last night a GF and I were on the prowl for evening dinner and stumbled upon this enchanting establishment. After passing this spot up for another restaurant up the block, we decided to come back after being mesmerized by the dessert menu. I ordered the Strawberry-Rose Semifreddo, and my pal ordered the Ode to the Opera. Both were divine, and the staff were charming. We felt like we were in a fairytale, how the team engaged with us and how well the food tasted. I am excited for my reservation later next month!

Antoinette Levon: Lovely place to eat. Limited but well crafted menu. Delicious cocktails accompany creative dishes that pair well with the season. We are outside in the courtyard. Even during the winter it's beautiful. The over arching vine must be gorgeous in the summer. The food was absolutely delicious and I would go again.

Tqteacher Peet: What a wonderful epicurean fantasy fulfilled! Just made a reservation based on Fodor's description. Expected nice, maybe "good." Walked in suddenly we were being pampered and cared for like few places know how to do. Do not even look at the menu, just experience the Chef's Table! Each serving will surprise and then delight you. This team of professional dream weavers will never allow your water glass to empty. They will change out your plates and utensils between each course so your palate is able to focus on each exciting nuance of the next course. Be sure to request the whimsical patio and enjoy your own flame 🔥 feature at each table. So romantic. So unexpected, so much more! The food is so well prepared, the presentation perfect, each bite a delight. Make this a must have meal any time you are within 100 miles!

Stacy Walker: This was such a beautiful night! We did the chefs table experience and it was SO good. They respected my dietary restriction (no pork) and made a different dish, which I really appreciate! Dessert was super good, and they brought a special treat for us since we were celebrating a birthday. I'm not a fancy food person, and they answered my questions with no judgement! Loved this place.

Le Diplomate: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Admiral: what do users think?


Salvador Robledo: Great outdoor seating, food was on point. I had tacos but wished I got the soft shell crab sandwich which was delicious!! Prices not bad for being around dc area. Had a blast with friends here!

belen D-M: Really good atmosphere in the Admiral. We enjoyed it a lot and the service was wonderful.We ordered margaritas and they were really delicious, 100% recommend it. And it is also pretty close to many night clubs, so a great place for pregame 🤙

Rosalind Ward: This place is awesome !! Food is awesome!! Drinks awesome!! People are awesome!! Music is awesome!! It was a beautiful Saturday we were seated right away I think it was timing… but the service was top notch!! And the food was so yummy!! Ten Stars

Kayla Hamburg: We had an amazing experience reserving a space at the Admiral for our engagement party with about 25 people. They were extremely responsive to my emails and helpful at answering questions. The event space was very well put together and sectioned off for us. They were attentive to our guests and the drinks and food were amazing! They were especially helpful in kicking out people from our reserved section that were not in our party. Thank you for an amazing event!

Emma Jarczyk: The Admiral is a great place for events - Kati was a pleasure to work with and very responsive with scheduling and finalizing details! The staff were all very welcoming and the night was flawless. Will definitely be recommending The Admiral to my colleagues if/when planning events in DC. I was also offered bar/food deals for my guests without even asking. Overall great experience!

Russ Dean: Spoke to Charlie on the phone about adjusting to a 10:30 reservation for 4 the night before the actual reservation and he confirmed. We were celebrating a birthday. Arrived to find no host or manager to be found whatsoever, and the bartender said reservations stopped after 10 and good luck finding an open table, that it was more club style. Charlie said nothing of this. Why make a reservation adjustment for me and not mention that it means nothing after 10 and your kitchen also closes? Finally found an open table and seated ourselves after some time had gone by. Asked bartender to have a manager sent over to our table twice and no one ever came. If we didn't approach the bartender we would have never been served or aknowleded. They should genuinely investigate who was working and answer for why no one was their directing customers at all on Saturday night. Horrible business. Would love to have management reach out to make it right.

Alicia Menendez Brennan: I worked with one of the event managers, Tyler, to arrange a large office Happy Hour at their outdoor tables. The experience was seamless, and the happy hour was delightful! It was great to be able to order from their outdoor bar, and everyone was happy with the food and drink. Would definitely recommend for both small and large outdoor event needs.

Janna Sheets: I always have a difficult time finding a good brunch spot that’s willing to accommodate a larger group of people, but I had such a good experience here. The events manager, Tyler made it a really stress-free and fun experience because he was very accommodating. The drinks were also fun and 10/10 overall.

Andrew Carothers: Went to the Admiral for bottomless brunch on Saturday and had a great experience! The food and drinks were tasty and our server was prompt and attentive. They also did a great job accommodating our large group of 14 people. Would definitely go back!

Shomik Das: I came here for an event and only had the drinks. While sugary, the drinks are well made. At least the specialty drinks I had. The patio was large and had ample space for a lot of people. I plan on going back to experiencing this place fully and from what I saw, I would recommend to others in the area looking for drinks. The prices and service are reasonable as well.

Mintwood Place: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heriberto Gonzalez (Heri): Had an absolute lovely time! The food was on point and the staff was super friendly from the get go. We were celebrating our anniversary and they were very accommodating. We had the seared tuna and a very tasty beet salad. The fry cake dessert was scrumptious. Of course you go for the bourbon and they didn't disappoint. Some stuff we were looking for were out, but Matt was able to suggest similar bourbons that were awesome! If you want to have a great time and try hard to find bourbon, stop by!

Oceanie De Silva: What an Amazing Whiskey Collection!! We had a night out of drinks here with our friend who was visiting us and we absolutely loved the place and the collection of whiskeys and bourbon and so many other stuff! The bar tenders are so friendly and knowledgeable about everything! I said I love fruity cocktails with either Gin or Vodka and instant cocktails were created! Must visit in DC

Meg Salocks: One of the best collections of Scotch Malt Whisky Society on the east coast, along with lots of other unique bottles with a real range in prices. The staff are eternally nice and thoughtful, and will happily help you find the right pour for your tastes. A date night favorite if whiskey is your thing.

Jasen Covert: Amazing selection of bourbon, whiskey and scotch. What made the night was how great our service was. Very knowledgeable on all things whiskey, and recommended phenomenal drinks. Can't wait to be back!

Anindita Barman: This is a very popular place I could tell from the crowd that was in the restaurant even after the kitchen had closed. We had the "Jack Rose Barrel Picks" flight, the "Time in a Bottle" cocktail, whiskey Wings and fries. The whiskey selection in the flight was great, the cocktail and the wings were good as well, however, the fries were not seasoned or salted at all. Service was good but the host could have done better. He just stood there without greeting or anything so we were not sure if he was part of the staff. Upon asking if he worked there, he said he did after which we asked for a table and he led us to one. :/ Parking can be a hassle as the restaurant is in the heart of DC. There is street parking but finding a spot is up to luck.

Gregg Caldwell: Have been here two times and the service has been excellent and the bourbon knowledge has been on par. Not sure how long it would take a server to know what liquor they have and the ability to speak about each bottle? Place gets loud as it gets later in the night. Make sure to check out the upstairs area.

Kevin Raisch: As a whisk(e)y fan, I had to visit Jack Rose while in DC and it was awesome. Kyle, our whisky advisor, perfectly crafted a whisky flight based on my preferences and provided very detailed and interesting facts about the story and science behind each bottle. In addition to the 3,000 unique bottles of whisky they have food, beer, cocktails and two floors of space (including outdoor space) so it’s perfect even for those who don’t want whisky.

Larry Miller: Over 2600 different Whiskies in their inventory. Great selection of rare whiskey. Great cocktails, service and food. This was a busket list bar for me. Itcwas the worth the trip.

Michael McDaniel: Truly a must-go place for bourbon and whiskey lovers. For starting at only $28, you’ll get to experience 3 bottles tasting with an excellent background on each bottle by well-knowledgeable and passionate servers.The second floor is open air with different corners to experience.

Nick Lethbridge: A whiskey lovers dream! The list of rare bourbon and Scotch is phenomenal. It's an absolute must for Bourbon lovers with a long list of options. Bar staff are incredibly knowledgeable.

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!

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.

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

Ambar Capitol Hill: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Del Mar: what do users think?


Genesis Marrero: I was truly impressed with this dining experience. We flew to DC for my birthday week and had my birthday dinner here. Luis served us and he was definitely one of the best servers we have ever had wait on us (and we are huge foodies so that is saying something). He was so attentive and just knew exactly how to guide the dining experience based on what the guests is wanting out of their night whether they know specifically or not. We let him take the wheel with all of the knowledgeable recommendations and we were so happy from start to finish. We came back for our last meal in DC and again, Amber served us, and again we were not disappointed. She was so sweet and also had wonderful recommendations and made sure all of our needs were met before we said goodbye and hopped on a flight. Luckily Luis was also there and he remembered us which made us happy because he was also so memorable for us. He was so nice and sent us our new favorite drink that he enlightened us to - the carajillo. I don’t think you could go wrong with a single thing on this menu. The rest of the staff was also very efficient and everything just seemed to flow so smoothly with the teamwork here. I can’t wait to go back someday!

R: This was my first time going to Del Mar and the food was phenomenal! We went as a group of 8 to celebrate a birthday. It was my first time trying octopus and it was really good. The parking in the garage was $45 since I stay for 4+ hours which was a downside for the night so it might be better to find street parking.

Dondré: I rented an igloo and I took my family here for my Mother's birthday and my experience was incredible. The bubbles aka the igloos are nice and incredibly warm. The service is five stars absolutely fantastic, the waiter was nice and patient explaining the family style ordering style. The whole restaurant is extremely nice and well decorated it's like a huge mansion. Lastly this is not a cheap restaurant by any means, but the experience is worth it.

Jack Jiang: It's a bit pricy, but the food and service are worth the penny you spent! I love how the chef perfectly blends flavors together (like pepper+crab+uni sauce). The Sangria Roja cocktail is also a highlight, mixing the richness of wine and the sweet/sour touch of fruits/flowers - one of the best cocktails I've had in a while! Would recommend to everyone

J. Ivy Smith: Food was AMAZING! This should get. Michelin Star. There paella is the best I have had. I want to say there paella and cheesecake is similar to José Andre. Service was excellent and our waiter reminded us of actor John Mulaney. I def recommend this place and def Michelin Star worthy.

Black Star Dust: Absolutely stunning place. Great service. Top tier experience. Everything was a ten. The Seafood Paella is delicious. Highly recommend that dish. It comes in different sizes for sharing. It was my bday so they brought out gratis champagne and this cheesecake that was literally the one of the most delicious desserts to grace the planet. Don’t even get me started on the churros! Amazing! I also did come in with a VIP who goes there regularly so that surely may have enhanced the experience to 10 stars!!

Jo Han: If you are looking for high quality food and drinks then this is the place to be. I love their octopus and eggplants with drinks. There are so many selections but if you want to eat a lot then I'll go for paella. If you are going for drinks and chat then small plates are awesome and very flavorful. We come here multiple times when we come near here and never had bad experiences. Service is great too. So when you are at wharf then come by and try this place =)

Eli Samuel Bermudez: Beautiful restaurant, beautiful location and delicious food. Only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because is very expensive. Maybe ridiculously expensive for the food. Still a great experience for me and my wife for our anniversary !

Alya's Aura: The food was SO delicious and of course the service was top notch. Our waiter (I believe his name is Michael) was so nice and helpful and made some great recommendations. I definitely suggest leaving space for dessert because their little dulce de leche dark chocolate cakes with the horchata ice cream was beyond amazing! The perfect end to a great meal 👌🏾

Daisy Gutierrez: Food was good. Not great but good. The service was great! This wine was my fave. A little overpriced only because I feel at those prices the food should taste better. They have a great selection though! I had the seafood paella it lacked flavor. My friend had some green rice thing, neither of us raved about our main courses. The patatas bravas are good but could use more of the brava sauce.

Logan Tavern: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kingbird: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Calico: what do users think?


Natasha Shokouhi: A group of us came in one rainy Saturday for my girlfriend's post birthday brunch that we had in the neighborhood. Located in the trendy and popular Blagden Alley. This bar has both an indoor and outdoor space with their own separate bars. They have a cute patio space that is great for hanging out. Unfortunately, the weather didn't permit us to utilize this great space! They have a fun cocktail and bar menu. I love the adult juice boxes! We didn't order any food, but the food menu looked good. Next time around, I will have to try the eggplant parmigiana sticks. Service is excellent. Comfortable and chill space. Prices are reasonable for what it is.

Rachele Clegg: I was super excited to try this spot for cocktails and was extra disappointed. My friends and I ordered one round of drinks and all three of them were downright terrible. There are so many other spots in Blagden and the surrounding neighborhood that are better than this. The one saving grace was the service — 10/10 even though the place was completely packed out and even their door guy left a great impression. Hoping to return once the cocktail menu is revamped!!

Ken Whittaker: Nice space to kick it with a group. Outdoor and indoor area more than ample with bars. The outdoor space is very comfortable as the night cools. Add a DJ, band, or whatever and it's a good time. Cool things: Adult "Capri Suns" Separate indoor and outdoor bars Attentive and fast bartending The weather could enhance or depress the night... or both.

cassandra bierworth: Fun place to hang out with friends. Ordering drinks was super easy using the QR code and they were super tasty. Loved sitting under the lights in the bird cage section!

Lydia L: Love the atmosphere here, the friendly staff, and the tomato pie (though, all the food is good.)

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

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

Michael B: This place is super cute! Generally really nice atmosphere, good service and good crowd. I had the grain bowl and really did not enjoy it. Other reviews say food is great so perhaps it just wasn't to my taste. Was also disappointed they didn't have all the beers on draft listed. For these reasons I felt a dock in rating was needed.

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

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