St. Anselm: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mastro's Steakhouse: what do users think?


John Darden: The steaks were cooked just right. Our waiter was polite and make our evening more enjoyable. The lobster mash potatoes had plenty of lobster meat; however, it was oily. If you like lemon drops then you should definitely try theirs because of the taste and presentation. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were huge. We had added crab meat to one of the steaks; however, we felt as though the restaurant could have included more meat relative to the cost of the dish but it was good. You can pay your bill using your phone. That was a nice touch (no need to wait for someone to come back to you) We plan on coming back.
Response: Hello, we appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6263boU0Z

Jaela Ford: This review is strictly for the waitress named Nicole. We would have given 5 stars if she did not taint our experience in the beginning. We were told by the hostess that she would be our “wonderful” waitress. She also came over to bring us menus and ask our water preference as if she was our waitress. However, for some odd reason the waiter was switched. When she was acting as our waitress, she was extremely short when answering our questions & seemed as though she did not want to be bothered. She also never introduced herself. We had to ask our new waiter for her name. There was absolutely nothing positive about her. It was as if she had pre judged us just because we were a table of young black women. Thankfully, our new waiter Phillip came over and saved the night. He was super welcoming and helpful. He answered all of our questions with a smile. His customer service was top tier! The drinks and food were also amazing! Thank you Phillip!
Response: Hi Jaela. Thank you for choosing to dine with us, as we know you could have chosen anywhere to enjoy your meal. We are always looking for ways to improve, and would appreciate any feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. http://ms.spr.ly/6260wuAhs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

Central Michel Richard: what do users think?


Adam Riemer: I’ve been here a few times for dinner and this was my first time for lunch. The service is always perfect. The French onion soup is delicious and the burger was as expected for lunch. The sauce on the top bun was tasty too. The chicken nugget appetizer was tough and not good texture and mouth feel wise, but the sauce was nice. Each dinner has been as expected. If you want consistency with French food and amazing customer service, Central is for you.

Mary Brown: Excellent food. Friendly, professional service. We had onion soup, shrimp burger, tagine, branzino, fish and chips and tried the majority of the desserts, as well as some of the beverage list. It's somewhat hard to hear for conversation, acoustics are a bit rough. Lovely place and we'll definitely be back.

W Vanessa: I was overwhelmed! First time in DC, my first meal here…. I felt so lucky!! Found you!!! Awesome services 😍warmly! Delicious food! Un-expected price!( Thought more expensive in this area and with this good quality service and fancy restaurant) We have 3 adults and 2 kids. Boys looooove spaghetti and Mac and cheese!!! Me222! Believe me! They are not like regular spaghetti and Mac and cheese!! If you have kids! 💯 try it!!!

Robin R Johnson: The food is unique, yet familiar (not like a menu of things so foreign you’re afraid to try). The wine, excellent ( they’ll give you a taste if you’re not sure). But be sure to save room for desert, and be prepared to be amazed. Note: it’s loud here, so not the best first date location. Second date, sure!

Craig Herrick: It’s always a pleasure to dine at Central. The food is perfect with a variety of items and price points. Same for the wine list. The atmosphere is vibrant. Outdoor dining is fun on the right day

Cristina Guidi: Ok…..this restaurant did it AGAIN! Central has a new Chef’s menu with four courses and it was out of this world. The meal started off with an amuse bouche of a gougeres with pate. Yum!!!! The blintzes were stuffed with truffled goat cheese and golden beets with arugula. The main was a braised beef short rib sitting on top of ancient grains. Lord have mercy that was delicious. And dessert was a sweet potato cheesecake. All for $70! Well worth it!! Heavens! This was one of the best news I have had in a long time. The chef’s menu for some reason is not on their website. I just happened to see it on Instagram at @centralmrdc. Do yourself a favor and enjoy this meal.

Anna: Good, not amazing. We enjoyed the staff, food was good. We tried the shrimp cocktail and hanger steak.

Daniel Rosen: Every single time I visit this place, its perfect! The amazing fresh and delicious food, the attentive servers, they consistently deliver quality. Just look at the plate......devoured...great job to the team and Boris.

Yacin Loraoui: Great ambiance, great food. Love the fried chicken every time I have it! Menu is random for a “French” restaurant (Pasta, fried chicken, tagine, schnitzel) It’s Not cheap

Chyrl Jones: The food was amazing! Everything from the appetizers, main course and desserts was incredibly delicious. Particularly loved the banana split. The manager was very friendly and spent time with us sharing the cooking process for several of the items we had for dinner.

BOURBON STEAK: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chloe Hunt: I wish I could give 0 stars. Unfortunately, with a party of 8, this restaurant's service was absolutely terrible, and we paid a pretty penny. The waiter was sloppy, forgot to bring plates out, we waited over an hour for appetizers when only 6 or 7 tables were set up in a restaurant that could seat double that, they forgot to bring out an adequate number of wine glasses, etc... the list goes on and on! This was really unfortunate in many respects.

Ukiyo: Superb service and an even more super food, which was different than any other food I tried before. My favorite dishes turned out to be the mussels in the white wine sauce and the marinated eggplant. The scallops were really nice too. This restaurant is perfect for a business dinner as it does not get too loud. I would recommend to anyone who wants a nice unique dinner in a peaceful environment.

nivethitha jayaraj: Impeccable service, impressive taste. The menu is just a single side and what they say about restaurants that have small menus is true- almost everything is bound to taste good. I saw just one chef in the open kitchen and he was doing an amazing job on the dishes. Nutella French toast was really light and flavorful French toast with Nutella on the side- heaven! The Belgian waffles were outstanding and barely needed the syrup on the side. Crab cake Benedict was a good size dish- the crab cakes were crisp and the eggs were poached right, but the vinaigrette served on the side salad stole the show. The frites were excellent and there were three aioli choices- the Thai flavored one was yummy!!The egg skillet was great with crisp potatoes, onions and cheese and really good bread. Hot chocolate was decadent and we had a cheesecake dessert- this was not exactly a cheesecake but whatever it was, it was delicious !!

Margarita Pineda: We went here for brunch to celebrate our anniversary and were so happy we picked this place. 1) Service = The service was great. A few mentioned that service wasn't so great but we did not find this to be the case. Ralph was extremely attentive. The bread was brought out warm and the butter was very easy to spread. 2) My husband ordered the classic mussels and biscuits and gravy and he says both were VERY good. 3) I ordered the steak frites and it was also very good. The steak was tender, the sauce was tasty, fries were crispy and the watercress was good. 4) Ambiance = Everything was nice, we sat outside for the lovely weather and had an umbrella for shade. 5) I recommend getting the bottomless mimosas!

Arash E: Great experience having dinner in a restaurant after 3 months! The patio seating was used, no indoor seating. The servers (as well as the customers!) were a bit confused about the situation and you could not be sure what to expect in the service vs. safety balance. But the food tasted great as always and the hosts did their best.

Jacquie Beveridge: We enjoy a meal here every time we visit DC. The service was great! I was disappointed the octopus wasn't available, but enjoyed the modules, as always.

Jacquie Beveridge: My mouth was watering as I made the reservation for dinner here with my cousin. We'd eaten here five years earlier and were excited to return. The octopus was the best I've ever had and tonight was no exception. Our server, John, shared just the information we wanted to hear to select several plates to share. The octopus was as good as we remembered. The eastern oysters were not too briny and the mussels with wild mushrooms and truffle cream were excellent! My cousin has now converted to become a mussel and oyster lover! We look forward to returning!

Brown Bear Life: I didn't know what to expect based on the name except for French based cuisine and Brasserie Beck did not disappoint. You have a lot of options on the menu, nice wine list, and the cocktail menu was pretty extensive also. Knowledgeable wait staff, the presentation was well done, and the atmosphere was cozy and relaxing. Bon appetit!

Erik Johnson: Brasserie Beck was great both times I visited. Happy hour offers a half dozen oysters for $9, and is more than worth it. The beer selection is small but exactly the right beers for the place. A dinner of mussels was more than I could eat after the oysters - the mussels were both large and delicious. Service was a tad slow in the bar on an early Friday evening but very friendly. Will return soon!

Nikolaos Moropoulos: Great food, great atmosphere, great service, good value for money. Do you want more? We had oysters from california, octopus, steak tartare and a salad with smoked salmon. All were of great quality, well prepared and served. The atmpsphere of the brasserie invites you to enjoy the eating and drinking experience. Service is great, the people serving the drinks and the food know their wares and truly help with selections. Finally, the price is right.

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.

McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks: what do users think?


Tracey Robinson: So we went here for our 4 year anniversary because I'm a seafood lover and when I tell you my Lobster was so fresh and so well prepared (shout out to the chef)! the waiter that we had wasn't as great but the food was so good you kind of forget about her forgetting everything. My margarita that I ordered was different it came with a hot pepper in it but it was still good and strong I guess that's a thing in DC because a couple of restaurants I went to had peppers in the margarita.

Jason Jonathan: Coming here with my partner during our trip to D.C., and it was one of our best decision. Our waitress, Jessica, was very friendly. We ordered the stuffed salmon and their top sirloin, both of which were very tender and reasonably seasoned. Somehow we love their mashed potatoes very much! It's smooth and creamy, perfect!
Response: It was a pleasure serving you! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We hope you'll come and see us again soon!

Tiffany Smith: Went here with a friend and everything was outstanding; from our waiter (only wish I could recall his name) to our dessert. The wine list was exceptional, the oysters were delicious as was the Seabass that I had and the lobsters that my friend had. We even finished up with some cheesecake. Service was A++

Warman Hall: I got the chance to visit while I was in Washington DC for a conference. The other folks in the group wanted to try this place. I'm very glad we went. The steak was outstanding! While the stalks of asparagus I ordered were larger than I was used to getting it was perfectly cooked. I was told to try the lobster bisque and it was one of the best choices I made on the whole trip. I highly recommend this for a special night out for anyone in the area.
Response: Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!

Craig GroveRealtor: Had an excellent experience. Our waiter AJ was super friendly and made great suggestions. He made us feel extremely comfortable and laugh. The steak and sides were delicious. Highly recommended! Ask for AJ!

Monique Jackson King: I had a long travel day and was really happy to finally sit and enjoy a meal! I came in and when the hostess (African-American woman with blonde hair in a bun) walked up, she didn’t say hello or ask how many would be dining. She looked at me awkwardly for a moment and I then asked to be seated. She told me they weren’t taking any more walk in guests (the dining room had available seating). She didn’t offer an alternative. I asked her if the bar was open and she asked another host, or host manager, who was standing there. I seated myself and enjoyed my meal, but was disappointed in that being my first “greeting.” It lacked hospitality and professionalism. The server at the bar was great and made up for the earlier experience.
Response: We are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6269b6G3W

Courtney B: My first time here and I loved it! It was a friends 35th birthday, they gave the 5 of us a private booth, that we could close the curtain for more privacy if needed. Bella our sever was amazing from start to finish. I got the crab and shrimp stuffed salmon and it was really good with the lobster bisque mashed potatoes! I will definitely be back!
Response: It was a pleasure serving you! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We hope you'll come and see us again soon!

Dani Elle: Very good food. Cosmo drink was one of the best I've ever had. Service was attentive but slow (the norm post-COVID in my experience) so be prepared for a leisurely meal. I'll be back!

Phillip Bulger: Food was good, but not great value for price. Service could have been better, a few orders for a group of 10 were missed. Steak needed to be sent back. Overall still a good experience.

SuJin Choi: Made a dinner reservation for 5:30pm through opentable, we had to wait for the waiter to sit us at 5:50pm and the restaurant was clearly empty and even made few eye contacts with a few of the servers walking around in the back). The woman's restroom ran out of soap and had an odd odor. At a time with the COVID19 going around, you would think a restaurant would stock up on soap for their customers. We ordered the fried calamari and arugula salad. Fourth of the calamari was fried veggies/jalapenos. The lobster tails were alright. We got the C.A.B NY strip with bone in at medium rare but it came closer to medium/medium well and some burnt edges. Truffle fries tasted like normal fries. Nothing too special and truffle about it. Not sure if I'll make another visit (at least at this location).

BLT Steak D.C.: what do users think?


Jennifer Baxter: Everything from ambiance, service and food - all exquisite. The filet mignon,(not in the pic) melts in the mouth. It was a pleasurable dining experience that we had. We will definitely be back.

Yongdo Lee: Food is top notch. I came for steak but was pleasantly overwhelmed by the fine dining quality of the dishes. However, I did go in for porterhouse steak, which I've been advised to order later (after finishing the appetizer) and been told that they were out of them. That was ok, inventory management is not easy. However as we were walking out of the restaurant, we saw other tables enjoying their porterhouse. Surprise! I'll definitely come back for the food (kudos to the chef) but hope to be able to improve the rating on my next visit.

jasprit Singh: Hi guys. Just tried BLT steak house for a formal business dinner. The restaurant was quiet impressive. Staff was friendly. Ambiance was good. There food was very good and they serve a very nice table bread too. Prices were in the higher range as expected from at a good steakhouse. The only reason they will not get a 5 Star rating is because they were not carrying any Single Malt whiskey above 12 years, generally a 18 year single malt is expected at a high end restaurant. The several round of alcohol that were ordered to the table were messed up and sent back twice. On the whole a great experience and if you are willing to spend top dollars for a good steak I would recommend you try it out.

Ed Weaver: Great atmosphere, delicious food, and exceptional staff. I would have given this 5 stars, but my aged bone in ribeye was a bit dry and over charred for my taste.

DeJuan Price: I wanted to love BLT. I did not. It’s unfortunate because the food was tasty — and more or less consistent with other fine dining steakhouses I’ve been to. However, I was sorely disappointed by the quality of the service. Our waiter seemed to disregard us and was very disconnected from our table and our needs. He never introduced himself; he rushed through answers to questions, made no note of specials or recommendations, and averted eye contact for most of the service. Similarly, the manager was happy to speak to and check in with other guests and patrons but never came to our table. He spent over an hour talking to one guest and never glanced in our direction. I want to believe it was not discriminatory, but for the cost — the level of service to Black patrons in my experience was lacking. Though I enjoyed the food - I will not be going back. Tonight was supposed to be a celebration for a younger cousin and provide her exposure to a high-quality dining experience - it did not meet my expectations or accomplish this goal.

Domenick Grieshaber: Everything was great from start to finish. Service was second to none. More importantly, It’s not just about eating it’s about your dining experience. Marco and his staff made us feel like family. They anticipated our every need. It’s hard to get good service these days, Marco and his staff were on point!

Betty: Food was great. No complaints there but our service was terrible. Our server Lajuan was not attentive. Took us absolutely forever to order dessert. And almost 30 minutes to receive the bill after everyone was clearly done, looking around, waiting. We were here for some birthdays and the table next to us got a special experience where as he just dropped our desserts with a candle and left. Also had some major attitude.

J Mac: The Yorkshire Pudding and Rack of Lamb were FABULOUS. Those foods paired with the locally bewed Hazy IPA made for a marvelous combination that I will certainly recommend and enjoy again. The service was outstanding, even in the face of a crowded "special event".

Chrissy Doe: I love this place and we go here often enough. I was super excited to go after they renovated. The food was amazing as usual and our server was excellent. However, the America wagyu ribeye I ordered medium rare came out medium-med well. I did not return it because we had an even afterwards and I’m just not a return food sort of person. I will go here again, but to spend 90+ on a steak that’s over cooked felt like a waste. Everything else was exceptional as usual.

Jillian Woods: My friend and I just ate here with her 6 month old in tow and we could not have had better, friendlier service. Lajuan was our server and he went above and beyond, catering to our needs before we even had to ask. Thank you BLT for an outstanding experience!

Bobby Van’s Steakhouse: what do users think?


Aislinn Nyx: The service was very prompt and attentive. We tried out the seafood tower, the jumbo shrimp were delicious but the cold lobster with no butter was off-putting. I ordered the filet mignon and it was dry but well seasoned. My husband had the ribeye and a baked potato and mushrooms. The sides were very generous and delicious. The lava cake was standard. Overall, it was an okay dinner but the lack of ambience and quality of food makes the bill seem ridiculous.

Tonia Scott: The steak was really flavorful. I enjoyed it a lot. Was surprised by the limited menu items (what's with that lil paper menu). Went there because I heard about their lobster diablo, wasn't even on that menu. Did I get there too late(reservations were at 7:30pm)? The chef did switch out the shrimp fettuccine for lobster but it was lil baby ones. Had a good taste so I was satisfied. Might go back. Would like to try the porterhouse steak.

Yolanda P.: Bobby Van's was a nice and classy experience! We had jumbo shrimp cocktail, Asian pear salad, Chicken marsala, shrimp fettuccine in garlic wine sauce, creamed spinach, seasonal vegetables (broccolini), cheesecake, and carrot cake. The salad and shrimp cocktail were very delicious! I was not too pleased with the shrimp fettuccine. It could use some added seasoning (very blan). The chicken marsala was reportedly good. The restaurant is nice but somewhat old-fashioned...very classy though! I suggest getting an early reservation or you will feel rushed by your waiter lol! Overall it was great experience and I might recommend it to others.

Rachel Murphy: Went for the first time with a Groupon. It was a ton of food. The filet was well cooked and the sides - mushrooms and sprouts- were very good. Saturday half off bottles of wine made this a very affordable night out.

Amber B.: Attended a work event here. They were easily able to accommodate 20 people. Service was fantastic and food was phenomenal. Everyone enjoyed what they had. We all ordered appetizers, salads, entrees, shared sides and enjoyed their lovely wine selection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for a nice steak/seafood dinner.

L J: Went here for an early Father's Day dinner, used a Groupon voucher. All of the food was delicious! Didn't have anything either one of us wasn't thrilled with. Beautiful atmosphere, I will say the booth was a bit tight. But that's only because I'm 7 months pregnant and well, big old belly. Will recommend going back and plan to take more family members. Valet parking across the street is very convenient and made everything easy.

Charles Davis: Sorry, but the filet was a bit old, dry, and average at best. At 3:00 am I woke up with, let’s just say, “gastrointestinal distress”. Not fun. Great atmosphere and service, and I left a good tip because it isn’t the servers fault. However, I’d avoid the Filet. Very disappointed: I had brought a kid who I’ve mentored for 12 years as a special treat because I’m so proud of him: awesome guy. Sorry to say the steak was sub-par at best. The only reason I didn’t send it back is because I didn’t want to sully the moment. Maybe it was a fluke: lots of good reviews on here. Maybe we were judged because he’s a blue color kid, and they felt they could pawn off an old cut. But really? You either have integrity or you don’t. On the bright side, the fries, bread and asparagus were great. 😂

Bill Farmer: Went to Bobby Van's recently on a Saturday night for the first time and has a great experience. The service was top notch and the filet mignon was cooked and seasoned just right.

Charlie: My wife and I found the restaurant through groupon. Paid for a prefixed 3 course fixed menu, great food. I got a filet mignon it was great. The service was excellent, our servers name was David. If you can get David I know your night will be wonderful! The restaurant will not rush you out like a lot of other seem to do, which made me very happy. My wife and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. :)

Thao Huynh: With the Groupon for the prix fixe dinner, this was a lovely experience for our anniversary. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. The music choice was interesting though, not what I expected from a fancy restaurant; I thought there would be classical/jazz music but it was modern pop. The sauces for the filet mignon were an extra $6, which was not told by the server so we had no idea. Make sure to ask. Other than that, it was a lovely time.

Ardavan Tookaloo: We went there during restaurant week for brunch. Everything was good, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was great. Our server was friendly and on time. I love it there and would go back for sure. The only reason I gave it 4 was because our server told us the champaign is $40 and he would give us some orange juice so we can make mimosa for ourself, however when the bill came, he charged us $56! When we asked why $56, he said $40 was the bottle the rest was the service for the Champagne and glasses and orange juice! I didn’t argue just because he was nice and the food was good otherwise I would have asked for manager.

Priyanka Dangol: We had the $25 prix fixe menu for restaurant week and it was amazing! The staff was very kind and the indoor decoration felt very luxurious. The service was quite prompt as well. We had made a reservation in advance so we didn't have to wait.

Andrea Black: Had an amazing time here! The food was delicious and definitely had great portions. I had the duck and friends had other entrees - everyone loved what they ordered. Beautiful atmosphere and decorum here. I will say, my visit was extra special as two young people decided to spend forever with each other. The man was definitely happy the woman said Yes and the restaurant shared in their happiness. Beautiful scene, encourage others to come by. Parking will be on the street - stop by a few minutes early just in case you have a small walk.

Mehdi Zamanipour: Delicious fresh french food. The place was almost full when we visited on Sat for brunch. Although it was because of the restaurant week fest. Servant was friendly and on-time.

goklt: Cute little place for frozen drinks on those hot summer days. They have a good variety at both locations. Of course it could use more alcohol but that could be dangerous!

Michael Gaster: On a 4day trip that started in New Orleans where I expected to start with amazing food and was greatly disappointed; then on throughout my journey nothing did it for me until I finally landed in DC and came to Bistro Bis! I ate more than i should have and it was worth every bite from every course I had. Started with the Billi Bi soup, followed by the Salad Pinache, then the crab cake and finished with the Gateau Opera dessert, delicious!

Peter Babida: I was a bit apprehensive about going to a restaurant in a hotel but Bis proved me wrong! The French onion soup is spot on, the lychee martinee had a real lychee (!), and their mac 'n cheese gratin very addicting. Service can be a bit spotty when busy but otherwise pretty good.

Janelle Evert: We wanted a relaxing meal after seeing many Washington DC sights, Bistro Bis, a French restaurant, was the perfect setting. The atmosphere was chic & fresh, and the staff was very attentive. Yaneth and Mohammed were our servers, bringing us each a hand selected French wine along with a delicious sample of soup & baguette slices I ordered Mussels Marseillaise with a mouthwatering fennel & tomato broth, while my husband ordered the classic and highly recommended Beef Bourguignon in a rich wild mushroom red wine sauce. Both entrees were delectable. We ended our evening with a scrumptious tarte au citron. It’s lemon & blueberries-what’s not to like? If you are in the Capitol area, please stop at Bistro Bis, on E Street, you won’t be disappointed.

Cha Vang: Had the Branzino fish and it was a revelation. The fish had a crispy skin with a walnut crust that was absolutely delicious. The seafood bisque was very delicate yet very good. The ambience was low key and very modern chic. Loved it and great for dates.
Response: Thanks Cha for taking the time to write such a nice review. We really appreciate it!

Dan Castor: Many people who travel to DC look for the quintessential go-to fine dining restaurant. If that is you, you must try Bistro Bis. Very professional staff, culinary staff that has been in place many years. These are the factors that make a great fine dining establishment. Give them a try. You won’t be sorry that you did.

Primrose: what do users think?


Heike Yates: We celebrated our anniversary in this welcoming restaurant. Everyone was very friendly and the restaurant had a neighborhood vibe but big city menu. We enjoyed a delicious dinner of French onion soup with a fantastic crust and no sogginess, steak and halibut were cooked just right. They also made sure to accommodate my allergies. Dessert was yummy to finish out the meal. Plus they offer a nice variety of tasty wines. Highly recommended and it was so relaxing.

Josh Jankot: We came for the Primrose Burger & Frites based on reviews from Eater DC and it didn’t meet expectations. We ordered medium rare and it was served medium well. The fries were crispy and far superior to the burgers quality. We bumped up the review based on tasty appetizers and cocktails. Overall wouldn’t recommend a burger at this restaurant.

India Lindsay: Lovely restaurant. Dined here with a friend. It’s a beautiful space. We loved the open air, French bistro atmosphere. The decorations are cute and have a classy Versailles theme. Food was yummy! It’s a bit of a French fusion. We ordered the champ burger, zingy wings, and the cauliflower. All were delicious. The cauliflower was our favorite. A very fun and creative pairing of roasted cauliflower with a hoisin/ginger based sauce and pickles, jalapeños, and a soft tart cheese. Menu is creative enough that I would love to come again and try out a completely new flavor.

Scot Fishman: Several weeks later, I still am forming my opinion about Primrose. I enjoyed it, but I found the food to be average, hence the tentative three stars. The space is cute, and it's a low-key neighborhood restaurant in Brookland. The brunch menu needs to be expanded a bit, as the options simply didn't speak to me. I ended up getting a burger, which was solid...but I've had better in DC. I also felt driven to the burger given that I wasn't feeling the other options. I might give this place another shot because there was a lot to like about it. To be continued...

Marisa Sterling-Abram: Lovely neighborhood spot. We went for brunch in Feb and were able to get a reservation 2 nights prior but it looked like they could take walk ins as well. They have heaters outside but still plan to wear your coat if it's under 40 degrees. French toast and shrimp and grits were delicious.

John Rutledge: Must say that we were very disappointed in our brunch experience today. Took my wife for her birthday brunch and the food and service were not up to the high marks our friends had shared when they recommended we go here. We ordered the Salmon Benny and the Pork Hash plus a Bloody Mary and a Mimosa. As you see from the pics, the chef can't cook a poached egg, let alone two of them. I would have sent the food back but no one ever came to ask how our food was. On top of this, we never got the biscuits with honey butter we ordered and had to ask to remove it from the bill. They apologized for the biscuits, but considering there was a $15 service fee already tacked onto the check, the meal was definitely not worth the $99 it cost us. There are so many good brunch spots in DC, unfortunately Primrose isn't one of them.

Dana “DS” S: I almost hesitate to write this because this is the kind of place you want to keep all to yourself! It’s beautiful, the food is amazing, and the customer service was fantastic. I highly highly recommend!

Virginia Inzeo: Let me start off with wow!! The food was so succulent and delectable. The environment was exquisitely quaint and relaxing. Great for a special occasion or night out. Call ahead because it can get busy really quick. Your best bet is making a reservation. If seating is available they take walkins. You won't be disappointed and it is worth every penny. I will be returning most definitely.

Jeff Wilson: Primrose is a FIRST CLASS RESTAURANT!!! John-Lee was so polite and engaging! Sebastian was also making sure that everything went smoothly — the whole wait staff is sooooo accommodating! Fantastic outdoor seating that is comfortable and surrounded by plants (see photos). Everything we ordered was excellent — Bronzino, Seared Scollops, Heirloom Tomatoes and Watermelon, Duck Mousse, Fried Oysters. Wine selection was also very good — we had a nice Austrian white to go with the seafood. The decorations and lighting inside are interesting and unique — the windows fold open to give a lot of fresh air. This place is expensive, but they meet your every need AND the clientele in the restaurant is sophisticated, elegant, and stylish. People travel to this hot restaurant from around the city for the first rate experience — make reservations well in advance — they are usually fully booked a week out.

Kiara C: Beautiful restaurant with wonderful service! We ordered a bottle of Le Vasche by Caprera and I had the mushroom gnocchi. The gnocchi had a strong bite to it which I think was from the cheese. I did not care much for the gnocchi but the French onion soup was AMAZING! I would definitely go back to try something else.

Rose's Luxury: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FIG & OLIVE: what do users think?


Julie: My family was here a couple of years ago before the pandemic and had a wonderful experience. My husband and I came back here last Saturday for Valentine's day. From making the reservation, everything was done with ease. When we arrived, the photo ID and vaccination card were checked 👍. Every dish we had was very pleasant to our palate. Some menus definitely got us curious that we kept referring back to the menu to read descriptions! Any small potential issues were addressed by such attentive + friendly managers Sofia and Ian 👌even before we said anything. Keep up the great work the team members at Fig and Olive! Thank you for being there and providing us a safe and phenomenal place to make amazing memories.

Yubin Kim: Each plate is contemplated. It is not hard to note the chefs here have a complete understanding of each ingredients used to make their dishes. Every bite was a harmonic perfection. Not to mention the interior and exterior of this restaurant is matched to concept. Had a lovely lunch dining!

Chioma O: Delicious experience! Beautiful restaurant and excellent service. It's a bit pricier than your standard brunch but well worth the $. I ordered the steak and eggs which was amazing and came out promptly..also ordered the truffle fries..yum! . I was not a huge fan of the Rosselini as it has a heavy syrup taste but otherwise everything was fantastic

Ruben Costa: Beautiful place, nice ambience, good service. The food was delicious and well cooked, nice presentation. Even the drinks were wonderful and everything was full of flavor.

Jonathan French: We decided to try here after reading about it online. The food was delicious and the ambience was just as good. We chose to sit outside because we came without a reservation and the inside wasn’t available. Outside worked well, though because the weather was perfect. I ordered the grilled tuna sandwich and it hit the spot. Seared well and the seasonings complimented the fish. The bread was also nice and crunchy. We also ordered a Mediterranean egg dish…I can’t recall the name but it was also fantastic. The sauce the eggs are in were full of flavor…honestly, it exceeded our expectations. Finally, I ordered the signature cocktail that was nice and cold. Perfect for starting the day… The waitstaff was super friendly and courteous, as well. Really happy with the whole experience. It’s located right in the middle of CityCenterDC. So if you’re in that area, worth stopping by.

Amik Maytesyan: Mac and cheese was super good hundred percent recomend, and the atlantic salmon was amazing, the truffle fries were the best fries we had.

Soraya H: I highly recommend Fig& Olive to DC visitors, service is always consistent. I went for brunch, I liked that the menu wasn’t overwhelming with options. I had the cauliflower salad which was delicious, I ordered a side of salmon because I thought the salad alone wouldn’t be filling - I was wrong, salad was very fulfilling. My partner got the fig & olive burger and said it was great. We had the Spanish octopus as a shared appetizer and it was also very tasty. Speciality cocktails were also a hit.

Riccardo Renna: would suggest to have the host at the entrance to get a bit more organized. The reservation online is used to avoid to have people getting clustered at their arrival, avoiding "traffic jams" at the door. But overall nothing than positive words about the rest

Abi Maghamfar: We had lunch at Figs & Olive this past Friday. We're chose to seat outside but the atmosphere inside is very cool and stylish with comfortable seating on couches and sofas and coffee table height tables in one side of the dining room. We ordered the Figs & Olive burger ($28) and Branzino sea bass ($36). The burger came with truffle fries and the fish with choice of a side from about half dozen sides. My wife told the waitress that she did not want the bun with her burger but she couldn't understand. Finally I told her no bread and she got it. My wife also unsuccessfully tried to change her truffle fries with parmesan fries but the waitress could not understand due to language barrier and we have up! The burger and the Branzino were cooked properly and presented nicely. The truffle fries were good but my wife would have enjoyed the parmesan fries more had the waitress understood the request. Overall, service was pleasant and friendly

Quenita Simms: The Salmon was decent, but I’ve had better. The environment was pretty mellow. The decor was pretty. Unfortunately, they had mosquitoes and I got bit up pretty bad on the top floor. You can dress up or down. Their cocktails are also pretty good. Especially the lavender one. The service was great as well. Id give it another try.

La Piquette: what do users think?


Alisa K.: We picked outdoor seating on a cold and windy April Sunday... That was our mistake, I guess. We eventually switched the tables and the heater effect was better there. The place is not too big inside and feels noisy when fully filled up. The food is good although pricey. Eggs Benedict is $17. Excellent brunch choices for main dishes and cocktails. Apple tart dessert is really good.

Cynthia M: Great food! Loved the steak frites and duck a l’orange. The meats were cooked perfectly and the flavors were spectacular. Only minor complaint is that the frites were way too salty, but they were still enjoyable in small doses. We also got the escargot and they are prepared differently than most other French restaurants we’ve been to but it wasn’t bad. Overall lovely experience and good ambiance, would go back to try other dishes next time we are craving French!
Response: Thank you Cynthia for your review. I will definitely talk to the chef about the French fries being too salty. Enjoy your day and see you and your family soon!

Jenna DeFosse: Lovely! Food was great. Came here to celebrate a birthday. And they set us up outside with accommodated seating since we had one family member in a wheelchair.

Joel Rosch: If you want an authentic French bistro experience this is the place. Nothing stuffy or pretentious about this place . Just tell your server what you want. Authentic carefully prepared food food, fine service, great wine selection. Don’t pass on desert. Just ask your server for descriptions, then enjoy a great meal in a great setting.. You can pay more for less at other better known places, but the food is better here, and you can hear more people speaking French, the embassy is not far away. We had appetizers, salads, a small plate an entree and a desert. No Misses

Chris Koehncke: Neighborhood place always bustling for a reason. On point service, no messing about. Solid food offering and good portion sizes, keeps people coming back.

Cole David: Service was lovely and felt very authentically French. All of the staff we interacted could speak French, not sure if they were all from there. The food was excellent, I got the steak and tried some of the fish dishes. The callimari is not fried like you might expect from an American restaurant—so just know that before you order—but I would still recommend it. Enjoy!

Lili M: If I could give this place 6 stars I would!! Food is exquisite. Staff is so friendly and professional!! They know what they are doing. They are there to make your experience unforgettable and they work hard on it.

Jeff Moore: Just a wonderful experience. Great wait staff. No rushing us out. Able to linger over wine and a great meal. Authentic. Friendly. Excellent food and service. Will be back. And the $8/glass house red is awesome.

Kenneth Ngo: Had high hopes based on reviews but was quite disappointed. Foods were quite salty. Mussels were very bland (sauce was salty but not flavorful). French fries were wayyy too salty my 6&9-year old wouldn't even eat it (what 6 or 9 year old doesn't like fries?!). Steak was also salty. Rabbit was OK. Canard was OK as well. Service was attentive and non intrusive. Bottom line: would not go back again (even at half the price of what we paid $500 total for 4 adults and 2 kids).

Manu Menéndez: We loved our dinner last Friday in La Piquette! Very good French restaurant and not too expensive! David and our server made us feel at home since the very first minute. The beef tartar was probably one of the best we've ever tried and the duck a l'orange was delicious! We wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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! 😄😄

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!

Stephan Herard: Had a really good brunch. The burrata was unique with a crispy shell on the outside and the soft mozzarella inside. The Burrata, Spring Begins dessert and Bomboloni are probably the highlights of the course.

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.

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.

Hanna Ozbeki: came here for brunch and it was great! we did tapas style and it worked out for us even with the larger plates. we got the brussels sprouts, caluflower, patatas bravas , arugula salad, chorizo hash and hanger steak and eggs the star of the brunch were the steak and eggs everything else was good, but the patatas braves were not my favorite compared to everything else on the table service was great! quick, respectful, and mindful of our requests!

Da-Wang Wu: Some dishes are good (e.g., cauliflowers, shishito peppers, shrimps, cheesecake, churros), but others are just okay (e.g., steaks with blue cheese, fried potatoes, mussels). Since it’s tapas style, it’s better to order dishes by batch vs. all at once. Outdoor dining space is available. It can be a bit pricy for a casual Friday dinner.

Shalini: Perfect place for the first in person meeting with my team! The food here is fantastic. I loved the Bomba rice which is a rich but not too heavy and has umami-ness from the mushroom, truffle and manchego cheese. The corn was my next on my list of favorites followed by shishito peppers (decadent pepper aioli on the side), crispy cauliflower which was good. The churros were amazing- they were served with dark chocolate sprinkled with sea salt on the side, were perfectly crispy on the outside soft on the inside and not cloyingly sweet. Good service and recommendations as well!

Genesis Christina: First time eating here and YOU have to go, the ambiance is so welcoming and warm. The food is to die for! Great prices and you are able to try so many different plates because of the sizes! If you are looking for smaller plates snacks you have to go here. If you are a fan of butternut squash, you need to try their butternut squash soup! The customer service was also amazing, our waitress was so sweet and accommodating. 100% recommend!

Martha M. Castro: Food is on point. Food is spectacular and fresh, with plates for every taste. Service is very friendly and very helpful. Drinks exceeded expectations.

Emily Crisan: Amazing food, drinks, and atmosphere! Do yourself a favor and get the grilled octopus and the braised short rib! Wonderful dinner and will definitely be back!

Colvin Will Do It: This is such a great restaurant!! The little portions are how I think American portions should be as well. I took my wife out to eat a great dinner and we were not disappointed. It was expensive but we knew that walking in.

Kaylun Draughn: Food and service were impressive. We ordered the octopus, mussels, arugula salad, duck, and crispy pork belly. Everything was cooked to perfection and came out pretty quickly. The churros were good but crispier than I typically like. I can’t wait to go back!

Jacob Fitzpatrick: Estadio has an outstanding menu that is small enough to navigate, but large enough to find something for all tastes. The unique tapas range from vegetarian flavors to unusual meats - but all with roots to Spain (and Basque Country). The vibe is hip and fun, but not overpowering or too loud. A definite DC gem!

Brandon Richardson: Yummy Tapas place. Indoor and outdoor seating. Mask required. The crispy cauliflower and chicken tapas were great! Well seasoned and delicious!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Monocle Restaurant: what do users think?


Trevor John: This Rustic gem is a great diamond in the rough. Gives off speak easy vibes reminiscent of Old financial district NYC.

Justin McKenzie: Absolutely delicious food! Historical venue! Friendly service! A must do on a visit to DC!

Xenon Booth: Lovely ambiance and great cocktails. The food was great, but not exceptional. I had the lobster linguine (which was fine) and my husband had a steak (which was good). We really enjoyed the oysters. We felt that this restaurant, overall, was great value for money.

Nicole Jamila: My boyfriend and I are very picky as he is a chef and I just love food in general. We’re visiting DC and the bar tender at our hotel suggested the Monocle. And boy are we glad we listened!!! We had 4 entrees; Crab cakes, made with JUMBO lump crab with a delicious sauce; Salmon, cooked perfectly and served with perfectly cooked veggies and a beautiful sauce; clams with linguini. We ordered two sides of onion rings (which they are known for). I’ve never had onion rings like that and I’m glad we ordered two because one wouldn’t have been enough. EVERYTHING was superb!!! Our server Joel was attentive and polite. He took such good care of us. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! When we’re back in DC, this is where we’ll be!

Carl Pruschowsky: I wish I took photos! Our experience was 11/10. Our server was fantastic and the food was wonderful. I got the Special which was a NY Strip cooked perfectly. The other people in my party got the crab cake, Ribeye and a Pasta dish and they were all ranting on how good everything was. Definitely order the soup!

LISA HANEY: I didn’t eat at the restaurant. We had a gathering upstairs. The staff was awesome. The bartender was extremely nice and funny. I’ll be back.

Kathy Moore: We chose The Monocle for our anniversary night out. The food was amazing, but the service was truly stellar. If you're looking for a great dining experience in a low key traditional ambience, do yourself a favor and make your reservation.

JOSE EMILIANO SOTO VILLANUEVA: . Unique menu, fresh food and the ambiance is incredible. Beautifully renovated and designed. Every time I come to DC I will be sure to pay this amazing restaurant a visit!!

District Daily Eats: I’ve worked on Capitol Hill for ten years and heard so much about The Monocle, but I’ve never had the chance to experience this steakhouse until this week. The Monocle is family owned and operated. You can find it steps away from the Senate Buildings. You never know who you might be sitting next to here whether its an ambassador or your very own elected official from the House of Representatives or The Senate. The menu is fairly standard as far as steakhouses go. I got the Ginger Manhattan to drink to start, followed by The tuna tartare. Next, I got the jumbo crab cake and a bowl of the jambalaya. For dessert I got the chocolate triomph cake. Everything was incredibly good! I can’t stress that enough!! I had the chance to talk with the owner and some of the staff. Everyone could not of been anymore friendly and hospitable. My orders were brought out to me quickly and correctly. As for the restaurant itself. It’s kept impeccably clean. Definitely check out The Monocle!

Nala Sloane: Coming to the taste of the food, I felt it was worth and the value for money according to me was amazing. Overall I would say the restaurant was great. Wonderful experience!
