Roof Terrace Restaurant: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vue Rooftop: what do users think?


Elizabeth T.: Awesome location for a rooftop - only issue is that the best views are by the standing bar which seems to be an odd placement considering the food is expensive and you would think that they would seat more people by the windows. Drinks are on the pricier side with beer starting at $11. We ordered the burrata and lobster mango to start - by far the highlight of the meal. For dinner I got the lamb burger and it was okay but I’ve had better.

Elliott Schellinger: The views of the Washington monument are absolutely unparalleled from the booth at the Vue Rooftop. This was my first time at the establishment and I must admit I am quite impressed. The staff and the management were extremely accommodating, even though our demands were somewhat obnoxious. They were willing to open up the private dining area just for the two of us, and let us experience the D.C. skyline at its absolute best. The food was quite delicious. The appetizers in particular were truly scrumptious; “calamari” and “Parmesan fries” are the absolute must, along with the “olives and bread” starter. The must have cocktail for me was the “power to peaches”, divinely smooth and summery fresh. All-in-all, it was a perfect bon-voyage evening before we headed back to NYC. Thanks to the staff and the management for wrapping up our Washington D.C. visit in a ribbon with a luxurious bow on top.

JR Franks: Definitely worth checking out for the views of the WH and Mall, and the rooftop itself is quite spacious with a good amount of seating. The drinks were (unsurprisingly) on the pricier side so I probably wouldn’t come back often. Didn’t try the food but the burgers looked excellent, I’d probably try one if/when I come back.

Pat S: We had a table of 13 guest for a dinner party. My calamari was hard and overcooked my entree the seafood linguine was distasteful. Our entire table didn’t enjoy their entrees. Beautiful views of the White House and Mall, and the rooftop it’s spacious with a good amount of seating and upscale. Good vibes and ambience for drinking and dance only, dine somewhere else. The drinks were on the pricier side my cocktail was $22, overall so I probably won’t come back as often.

Robert Klara: Eggs Benedict was divine 🏽 Mimosas were definitely key 🥂 You can't beat the ambiance and the view. Reservations required for brunch and dinner. Worth the experience.

JD: This is a great spot for the social fare and view. It was packed on a Tuesday evening. Food was okay. Service okay. Drinks are great. Service gratuity is included in your bill, so tip extra when warranted

Robert Chang: If you want a great view of the White House, definitely check out this bar. Definitely worth spending the price for a drink just to check out the view. The drinks are definitely on the pricier side and my Old Fashion was a tad small but once again, the view was worth it.

PGAmos: Fantastic view. The White House is hidden because of the trees but I’m sure it’s in plain view during the winter. I attended an event and everything I ate was tasty. The drinks weren’t bad either! I’ll be adding this to my list for out-of-town folks to visit.

Susan FG: Food was great, as were service and views. One drink from the outdoor bar was not good, indoor bar drinks were definitely better. We still had to wait about 20 minutes for our table but that was not too bad

Christopher king: The view was pretty great. I ordered the lobster and rice because the bartender recommended it. The presentation was great but it tasted really dry. My friend got the crab cakes and those were delicious! Dont get the rice, it’s not worth $54. Probably wouldn’t visit again.

The Rooftop at The Ven at Embassy Row: what do users think?


farida popal: I was there on Saturday the 25th. We wanted to go to the rooftop bar. As soon we were at main entrance, the door man greeted us and guide us. When we went to the bar the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were a bet pricey and bar food was great! I’ll defiantly go again.

chrisy edme: The stay was wonderful! The staff at the front desk are amazing ! Specially Lyle at the front desk, he was just a sweetheart to us. We booked our stay prior to them implementing the daily amenity fee. He waived it off of our stay and informed us that he will be more than happy to still provide the perks ! We received some sent sachet of jasmine and lavender which were amazing :) In addition to that he provided us with late check out because our flight was later in the afternoon. He also gave us some great tips of how to get around since it was our first time in DC. Also my room was provided with daily housekeeping and my housekeeper was just a sweetheart too but forgot her name unfortunately. My only Con was the bathroom size, as it was super small and there was no ventilation.

Kimberly “ ” Watson: Excellent! Love the space! The art exhibit in the hotel was wonderful!

D Nguyễn: This bar on the top of the hotel with a pool has a nice view of the city. Not that DC has much of a skyline. The pool is nice to relax after a day of exploring the museums. We went during the day for a couple drinks during Pride. We also came back in the evening before dinner for pre-drinks. It wasn't crowded. A couple people in the pool. The bar as a selection of food and cocktails. The bar service was friendly. Drinks are about what I expect from a hotel roof bar.

Neil Osment: Our review is split between the cocktail bar and the rooftop bar.....because the rooftop is actually closed for the season!! Not very helpful that this fact isn't advertised on Google or TripAdvisor by the hotel. However, the cocktail bar is very good, and Jorge (The Guru from Peru!!) is excellent. Friday evening (10/20/17 USA not GMT!) in the main bar was lively, vibrant and a great place to be 😊

Don Robinson: The bartender said it was a "soft opening" for the season. The drinks were very limited. No regular Red Bull (but lots of flavors of Red Bull), no Coke- only Pepsi, and not diet, and many other limitations. He gave us a free drink because he started to make the Jack and diet Pepsi but couldn't finish when he realized no diet Pepsi. The service was very good, and presumably they will have more options when they "really" open. The rooftop area was pretty basic, as I expected from the reviews, but the views of the city were nice. You could hear a little of the street music from Dupoint occasionally. This is not a destination, but was a great hour stopover between dinner and our Improv comedy show.

jo n: Visited on a Saturday late afternoon. When the bartender was asked about happy hour he claimed there wasn't one. Although the sign at the hotel lobby clearly stated there was one from 4-7pm. Based on quality, the drinks are super overpriced. The rooftop itself is small, an okay view. Don't waste your time visiting.

Reuben Wauyo: This is a beautiful venue and would seem to be all great but terrible customer service. Called for a reservation and information on restaurant and was referred to main line. To which someone picked up after I waited on hold, heard me then hung up. This is the most disrespectful and frustrating thing I can think of when trying to get things set for events. Calling back no one picks up and I have now been calling main line for 30 minutes to be assisted and again no one to answers. You would have to be crazy to work with these guys on anything important for you will receive absolutely no clarification or answers on any questions you have. I was very surprised to even see positive reviews at all. I really hope it’s an isolated event, but if I can help anyone else not deal with my issue I’ll be glad to steer you away and onto another location. I will update with location and name after my reservation is set with our new venue. Also to be noted, not even the central main line can reach these guys and are unwilling to even try. I believe we’ve definitely dodged a bullet.

Walter Hunt: Friendly staff , great location, very accommodating

Ariel Abramson: Nice view and plenty of seats, but they close early and there isn't much of a drink selection. My beer selection tapped out the keg but the nice bar server gave it to me at no charge.

Ellipse Rooftop Bar: what do users think?


Morris Jones: The good - This is a nice place to enjoy time with a friend...great views. Food offerings were on par for a roof top bar. The "beef" - The bar area is small...enough for hotel guests to enjoy and groups of two. The bar size and the bar service are not satisfactory for handling a group or a table with more than 3. Do not go expecting table service (none). You must go to the small bar to order everything...paying for a table or a round of drinks was a challenge. Paying for a $40 shot of whiskey served in plastic glassware (?)...I did enjoy my table guests, the view and the weather. I expected better service...

Donovan Craig: Nice rooftop with a bit of a view, the atmosphere was very relaxed, just wish they were open to the public more as we saw multiple days where they were closed for private events.

Rich Opalinski: Weather was perfect while we stayed, both bartenders were attentive,great views

M planetmike: (Update 2022 June) Arrive early if you want a seat. Conveniently located to McPherson Square. There is a happy hour. However due to its relatively small footprint and its connection to the hotel it is often reserved and unavailable. Recommend calling ahead to verify it is open. It is a refreshing spot on summer days.

Casey D: Drink selection wasn't that impressive. View was nice but we left after one drink. Was a bit crowded too, a party was talking up a lot of seat space but weren't actually sitting there. If we were starting at this hotel I may go back if I didn't have plans but not otherwise.

Rachel Cipkins: Perfect place to unwind after a day at the national mall

Adara Ney: A perfect place for an after work drink to watch the sunset and soak up nice weather. Great for group events too! I hosted a team happy hour with 20-30 and had a great experience. Great food (and prices!) on the catering menu and Brittany did a fantastic job coordinating the event.

David Cuevas: they never used real tequila on my tequila cocktai, I got a headache before I finished it.

Brenda-renee Vance: I enjoyed myself. The bartender was amazing. My drinks was good beginning to end.

Mike Rucki: Overpriced drinks, very limited bar selection, and not enough bartenders on a cramped rooftop. A decent view earns an extra star, but I cannot recommend this spot.

Top of the Gate: what do users think?


Alvaro H. Torres: Amazing view and I would highly recommend it. The sunset was amazing and the food was delicious. I had a memorable experience and enjoyed it spending it with my wife and first born. If you are in the DC area, this is a must stop for the Watergate scandal and for the rooftop bar.

Austin Graff: Top of the Gate is the quintessential D.C. experience. On the rooftop of the Watergate Hotel, there's history (Watergate Scandal) and rooftop views. After going for drinks on a Thursday evening, here's my experience: 1) Space: Walk through the Watergate Hotel lobby and take the elevator to the top floor. The rooftop is spacious with tables, couches, etc. It's a great place for drinks or a date night. 2) Views: 360 views of the area, you can see Georgetown, the Washington Monument, Rosslyn, etc. Go when the sun is setting after a good rain. The sky s stunning! 3) Drinks/Food: They aren't bad. It won't win awards, but it's decent enough, making it a fun spot for a happy hour or dinner.

Adam Galazka: Amazing views at night. Service was great. Drinks were great as well. Definitely a little pricey on drinks but probably expected in a hotel. It did close at 1115 on a Friday which seemed a little early for a Friday night. We will definitely come back.

Claus R B: The view of this place is just AMAZING! Perfect for special occasions, we had a wonderful lady helping us to choose the appetizers and she was right...the shrimp is great and if you are hungry order the pizza. Drinks are expensive but worth it.

Zeeshan E: Booked a table for 3 a few months in advance to make sure we get a good view as we expected experience. The issues are simple but shocking. Started a boys weekend off by visiting this embarrassing place. 1) We were seated somewhere around the side towards the back on old wicker seating with no cushions. Be warned not all seating is good. The chairs are low and you have to stand to get a view. Some towards the front bar area seem nicer. 2) We waited 50 minutes for one round of simple drinks. @$20-$25 each for vodka and ginger beer or rum and coke. Our reservation was at 5PM hardly a crowd. 3) Waited another 40 minutes for food. Basic pizza and fries another $1xx. Total was over $200 and auto gratuity lol what a joke. We will NEVER ever come back. Terrible service, grossly understaffed and over priced. We will personally go out of my way to make sure everyone knows NOT to waste a second in this place.

Denise: I felt the previous views were unwarranted. This one of the best rooftop bars in DC. The view is amazing, service was professional, and drinks were on par. The prices are about right with other high class rooftops. I will be coming back here again soon.

Matt Ryder: Had the audacity to cancel a reservation we made weeks in advance the day of “due to a private event”. Note to management: if you’re going to be so bold as to tell all reservations they will be charged $50/pp cancellation fee for any reservations cancelled within 24 hours - you should do the same should the tables turn. Will you be paying me $100 now due to your lack of proper scheduling and communication to your guests?? 🤦🏻‍♂️

Maxwell D.: Frankly, really disappointing. There is so much potential here to be a destination bar and they absolutely squander it! The cocktails are $18, served in thin plastic cups, and of the same quality that you’d get at a cheap late night college bar. The food, which is hilariously overpriced, is also average at best. $29 for two pitiful skewers with overcooked steak on them and a $26 7 Eleven pizza with some olives and banana peppers thrown on it. The service was below average as well, with servers disappearing for long periods of time, employees literally throwing drinks off the roof, and an otherwise pleasant hostess that waved us through and advised us to sit anywhere despite having a reservation. The ONLY redeeming quality of this bar is the stunning views of Georgetown, Arlington, the Kennedy Center, and the low flying aircraft on approach to DCA. DO NOT come here expecting quality concessions and cocktails, or even decent service.

sdgainesdc: Limited menu, pricey, staff seemed pretty helpful. Not a place I would go too often but it was a special occasion.

Will Normand: The rooftop was practically EMPTY, and it was just 2 of us and we wanted to get a drink at the bar. They insisted we "check in" at the host stand prior to going to the bar, which insanely took around 8 minutes per group. Literally took 15 minutes of standing in line at the host stand with barely anyone in front of us to be able to get a drink at the bar. The host had zero sense of urgency, handled everything as slowly as possible. Very disappointing experience. Once we got to the front, they said we needed a reservation just to have a drink at the bar. Horrible, will never be back

C F: This venue is absolutely stunning. It’s been several months after our wedding and we consistently still have guests telling us how beautiful our ceremony venue was. It has a breathtaking view of the Capitol and is extremely well maintained. We fit our 160 wedding guests under the provided tents for our ceremony with room to spare. Suzanne and the entire staff were a delight to work with and they really saved the day by accommodating us by scheduling a tour and our event very quickly after having our original venue cancel only 5-weeks before the big day.

Mark Vallaster: View is fantastic. Food is good but slow

The Capitol View at 400: what do users think?


Remembered Events: We just had a fabulous wedding at this venue. The view is beautiful. They have a parking garage underneath the building and you do have to go through the lobby of the new stations to get to the reception spot but well worth it. We had around 100 people which fit the space perfectly. Delmy the venue coordinator is so wonderful to work with. The space offers multiple options for your cocktail hour set up. The restrooms are far from the space just something to be aware of. I would suggest making signs it is downstairs or have a designated person showing guests where to go (this was something our planning team did).

Colby Shomaker: This place has great views of union station and the capital. Not the best location and set up to host an event but overall it’s ok.

Michelle with Lieb Photographic: I HIGHLY recommend The Capitol View at 400 for your wedding day! You get so much more here than most DC venues. A longer day, a wider space, a spectacular view AND staff that go above and beyond to make your day incredibly special! It's the perfect location for a fine art DC wedding!

ALANA VAUGHN: What an amazing venue to have any event. It felt like you were on the deck of a cruise ship with the beautiful black drop of the Capitol in the background. It was open air... it was beautiful but when it started to drizzle there was a beautiful canopy that still allowed you to enjoy the beautiful view.

Travis Hyams: We had our wedding of about 100 guests at Capitol View. Our experience was amazing, and we would recommend the venue to anybody that is planning their next event. The view speaks for itself. So, if you are on the fence, just go see the place. Delmy the venue coordinator is a true champion. She is experienced, organized, well-connected, and when the anxiety of planning an event becomes too stressful, she draws on all of these to keep you calm and make sure things go as planned. The day of went off without a hitch and our guests continue to rave about our event! Delmy handled all the décor and the venue looked truly stunning. We hope others get to experience how truly magical Capitol View is!

Kiedra E.: Unfortunately this rating comes from an inability to receive a date to even view the venue. We absolutely adored the space from what we saw online. I reached out to the venue the beginning of January and received little correspondence and after confirming a date finally but, not a time , I waited over a month for a time confirmation email that was promised and never came.This was extremely disappointing. I’m not sure why we weren’t valued or given the usual business etiquette or decency many others have in the past from the reviews I read but, I hope that this experience is isolated and not common practice of this venue.

andrew strycker: I was here for a conference dinner on the rooftop. The food was lackluster and ran out multiple times. the event was by reservation only so it was not as if Capitol View had no idea on how many patrons to expect. The two bars that were on the rooftop were cash only and hard to navigate towards. The bathrooms were also located a fair distance away. After a bit of socializing (like an hour), many of my peers decided to go to another venue.

Katie Hensel: Delmy is a true professional. She manages Capitol View with such grace and patience. When we first looked at the venue, we just knew it was the one. It had that "It" factor we were looking for. We looked at over 20 venues just in DC, including converted yoga studios, hotels, museums and art galleries. The roof of Capitol View, with the air conditioned pavilion and breathtaking views is just in a different league than the other places we explored. Leading up to the wedding, in the year of planning, Delmy was always so quick to reply to our emails and give us helpful tips throughout the process. She encouraged us to come to the venue multiple times to get ideas for our big day and took extra time for our final walk through to ensure everything ran smoothly day of. For the few days leading up to the wedding, Delmy had such patience with us as we made multiple trips to her office to drop off the alcohol, centerpieces, guest books and decorations. We didn't hire a day of coordinator and honestly, we didn't need one with Delmy and her team on site. She ensured everything ran smoothly and checked in with me and my husband multiple times to make sure we were happy and healthy! To put it simply, Delmy knows what she's doing and she does it so well. She brings years of experience which makes her brides at ease and focused on what's important on the wedding day!

Michael Gerardi: Great venue for people who are political advocates and/or patriots

Megan Muñoz: Delmy was very nice but myself and other guests could over see and hear her being unfriendly to the staff and taking down about the wedding party. Otherwise fantastic venue and a wonderful time.

Megan Martinez: This place is perfect for celebration cocktails and happy hour. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and I took my sister here for her birthday. Both times the view was spectacular, it wasn’t too crowded, and the service is just amazing. Each time the waiter brought a couple celebration shots and it made the occasion even more special! Deon was so friendly and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back!

Jason Saville: My company rented out the place for a night and we all had a blast. Very beautiful place, lots of room, great drinks and fast service. The view off the roof top is really nice. I would love to go back.

john Dickerson: The spot was dope, if you want a table or something to sit please make a reservation, and there's a 90 minutes time limit on reservation from the time your orders arrive. The staffs there are on their job, the DJ was great. Food and drinks was wonderful.

Black Star Dust: As you enter it looks like a hallway to no where but once you take the elevator ALL the way up, you’ll definitely feel like you’ve arrived. The rooftop vibes are on point. Great outdoor patio seating with panoramic views of the Potomac and Potomac golf course/Haines Point. I had the delicious salmon and kale salad and an old fashion. Both were delicious. The music and vibes are top tier. Great for a date night or night on the town with friends.

Donna Thompson: Came here got a quick pre-show meal. The menu was very limited but it made due. The grilled shrimp and the lamb steam buns were top notch. Also service was great. The place was empty but they made sure to make us feel welcomed.

Nia Bright: Very limited menu option. Beautiful restaurant + vibe but I wasn’t very satisfied with the Turkey club sandwich. Not sure what kind of sauce the put on because the menu don’t state it. The bread on the sandwich tasted terrible so I didn’t eat it. The po boy is good when they don’t toast the bread too long. Crab tacos 4/5 tasted good but I wish it had more than just cheese and crab. The crab dip was very tasteful. They should up the chips portion. So anyway the experience was good. I just wasn’t satisfied. Very good service for everyone. Also love that it’s a 21+ location. Thank you for bringing out our friend cake with candles

DeAndra Holmes: The view, vibe and ambiance was amazing. The menu is quite small but they make the best crab dip I've ever had. If crab dip isn't for you, get the PoBoy! Their drinks were great too. Customer service is top notch

Trena Briscoe: I recently celebrated my birthday with some close friends at 12 Stories at the Wharf. Everything from planning the event to having the party was easy and enjoyable. I reserved the Cove area of the club for my event, and it was perfect: The staff was attentive. The food was delicious! The music and the atmosphere were chic and elegant. I want to thank Judy Ava, the event planner, especially - she made me feel welcomed and handled everything with excellent care. I would be thrilled to host another event here.

Tina Beale: I was disappointed that we had a $75 minimum per person for bar food and was required to dress up for a lounge setting. The crab dip had mostly cheese and the drinks were water down. The Po Boy, chicken tenders and truffle fries were good. The View was spectacular but not sure it was worth the $500 dollars price tag for 90 minutes. That’s right you get only 90 minutes to enjoy the view. But at least I can say I tried it.

Candace L: Beautiful outdoor seating. It was cold outside but the heaters outside made the weather bearable. Our server was great, quick, and friendly. I tasted the chicken and burger. Get the chicken! It was delicious. My friend enjoyed the crab dip. Drinks were made quickly and tasted great. We made reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. Parking is a beast so arrive early. They stick to their 90 minute times on reservations.

CUT Above: what do users think?


Laetitia Monnier: Beautiful view of the Potomac river. The rooftop is really nice. We went at night and we could see the Potomac river and the skyscrapers in Virginia. We took desserts and it was so good ! We had the chocolate soufflé from the famous restaurant just below and it was one of the best cake that I had !! The basque cheesecake was good also but the chocolat soufflé was definitely the star of the show for me.
Response: Dear Laetitia: Thank you so much for you kind review of CUT Above. I am delighted that you were able to enjoy two of our signature desserts as you took in the view from above the hotel We look forward to having you back with us. Sincerley, CUT DC and Rosewood Washington D.C.

Manda B: Beautiful rooftop. Pretty small, chill spot so a good place to have a stop-by on a date night.. The cocktails were pretty good!
Response: Dear Manda B: Thank you for this delightful review! I hope we can welcome you back for more date nights! See you soon, CUT DC and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Cc C: Terrible service, terrible experience. We sat for an hour and we’re never served water. They didn’t bring us any menus for 90 minutes. The drinks are dramatically over priced for rail whiskey and tequila - at least $20 a cocktail. To add insult to injury, it took 15 minutes before the bartender even acknowledged me but served the woman who sat down after me. The ambiance inside is incredibly dark and they refuse to turn on the lights even at our parties request - we paid for an entire section in the restaurant. Ridiculous! The absolute WORST part was that the table we were supposed to sit at was left dirty for 45 minutes and they let us stand around, refusing to clean and adjoin the tables for our party. We ended up doing it ourselves! I would not recommend this place to any of my friends. I hate being that guy, I really do, but I honestly feel we were being discriminated against for our race! I wanted us to go to Flavio instead so bad!
Response: Dear Cc C Thank you for your note and comments. I am wondering if you can please reach out to me directly with more specifics about your experience so that we may address these with your personally. I can be reached by calling the hotel at 202 617 2400. This will then allow us to offer a more detailed public response to the above review. Many thanks, Timothy Edgecombe Director of Sales, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Rene Hugentobler: Limited expensive selection. I expected more from a 5 star hotel and especially from Puck. Food, drinks and ambiance. Additionally maybe a minimal dress code would be beneficial. The Graham seems to be the better choice.
Response: Dear Rene Hugentobler: Thank you for the feedback. As you can appreciate our rooftop lounge, which is adjacent to our rooftop pool, is used by both hotel guests and those from outside - so there will always be a variety of casual attire in this space. Given our kitchen set-up at CUT Above our Temaki Sushi program best allows us to provide an experience unique to the offering of CUT Lounge (on the main floor - which also has outdoor space). We have ensured that given our unique program and setting, our pricing is very competitive with others providing similar experiences. I hope we have a chance to welcome you to one of the other venues we offer in the near future. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Nisan A.: Went there for a drink with a friend and loved the Cut Above. Artisan cocktails and a good menu. Took great pictures for the full moon while there that night. The only thing is that it’s just a bit overpriced.
Response: Hello Nisan: Thank you so much for your review and the great picture! I hope we have the chance to welcome you back. Rosewood Washington, D.C. and CUT D.C.

Ronjon Ray: Beautiful venue, decent drinks. The tiny taco "sushi" appetizers were extremely overpriced. Would go back for drinks only.
Response: Dear Ronjon Ray: Thank you for your recent visit to CUT Above and for the rating. We appreciate the feedback and will review our menus accordingly. Hopefully we can welcome you back in the near future. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Scott Heldman: Fantastic view!Drinks were great.Service just a little slow.
Response: Dear Mr. Heldman Thank you for you kind review and your note on your service experience. We have made note of this comment and hope to welcome you back in the near future! Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Harry Fang: Nice rooftop bar and lounge with good food and drinks. A pool is accessible for hotel guests.

J: Went for a drink on a Friday night at 9:30 with two friends. Was told by the hostess that they were at capacity and there was a 15 min wait. We get up there at 9:45 and the bar is almost completely empty. Server doesn't come by until 10 and tells us it's last call and they're closing. Drink menu only has gin and tequila cocktails. Overall a sad experience for such a nice hotel.
Response: Dear J: Thanks for your feedback and for allowing us the opportunity to reply. Please understand that we were fully committed when you arrived - not being completely full is not the same as us limiting the number of guests we allow up at one time. We appreciate your comments about being a delayed greeting and you can rest assured we are working diligently on staffing levels. Our menu does highlight our Gin and tequila offerings; however, you can ask the server for just about anything you want and it can be served to you - our offerings are vast - we wanted to keep the actual menu as focused as possible. I hope we can welcome you back and you experience will be what it should be. Sincerely, CUT D.C. and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

D “D”: Newly opened hotel will generally pay more attention to their guests and high end hotels will pay attention in all areas to their guests . Rosewood DC recently opened in last October , and I visited recently their rooftop bar. Geo was our bartender who paid great attention while there were few couples, and then large group came and Geo all by himself.. tending the demand of that group. Food comes from the kitchen but there is no host to ask if everything is okay, Geo did when he got free time, but it's not bartenders job. And if I wanted something extra with my food, who do I go to? I have been to many rooftop bars , and Rosewood needs to kick up its service few notches up..
Response: Dear D: Thank you very much for your feedback. You can rest assured that we are working diligently to ensure that your next experience will not be a repeat of this past one. Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C./ CUT

La Vie: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hive Bar: what do users think?


Eric Stander: Great bar. Cozy and welcoming. Good food. Affordable. Friendly staff. Inside and outdoor seating. Unfortunately the rooftop bar is closed

Kelly Gmazel: Very attentive service in an intimate seeing. Very cool exposed brick. Good drinks. Small space, so not perfect for large groups.

Donna Carroll: Great pizza. Good vibe. Laid back atmosphere fireplace is a nice touch. Good breakfast.

Chase Williams: We visited this place over the weekend and had a poor experience. They have an elevator but do not use it! In fact, there is a sign on the upper level to not use the elevator. But, no sign on the ground floor. The staff at the bottom floor made no mention of the faulty elevator to our group, even after telling us to use it and watching us get on the elevator. We got on the elevator and it slowly went up, then 5 floors up it stopped and the door would not open. We were trapped for at least 5 minutes before the elevator slowly descended a few floors and the door opened. We used the emergency call button to contact the staff but they placed us on hold and hung up on us once. Thankfully we were safe and got out of the elevator. When confronted about this as we were leaving, the staff member could not have been more rude. Instead of apologizing about the incident, he proceeded to blame us for using the elevator (after he told us to). I’d recommend you take your business elsewhere, and whatever you do, stay off the elevator.

Rick Roll: I really liked the bar but I thought the prices were a few bucks too high for what they were. The staff was great though and the pizza was delicious. For a hotel bar this place hit the spot and then some. I'll more than likely go back given the chance.

dipika: Decent spot for a pre-KC show drink and quick bite (&pizza!). They carry a few local beer but certainly don't have a huge variety. There's enough seating for small crowds but very few options for big groups. Anyway, I'd be back if I end up in this area.

Aaron Wright: Luis made my whole day. We were new in DC and thought we’d do some bar hopping to see what’s around, and this is the only place worth being, hands down. Especially with Luis behind the bar. The vibes were 💯 the drinks were priced realistically, and my husband and I had an excellent time (they are definitely LGBTQ friendly, as advertised).

Tim: Fantastic bar situated in a cozy hotel. I strolled up to the bar and asked for a glass of bourbon, and was met with a smile and glass with two cubes. Definitely recommend - the rooftop bar is perfect during the summer months.

Erik Durant: I had a great time at the Hive Bar (Basement). The spot is clean and the service was great. My bartender Ms. Mo was cool had me laughing the whole time and her drinks were just right

J. D.: really enjoyed the pizza and drinks! Excellent food and service

Rosewood Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


C. Pine: Best hotel in Georgetown. I love the charm of this hotel right in the heart of everything. The friendliest staff and impeccable service and luxurious accommodations while steps away from shopping and more dining options. The library/reception area is a cozy and elegant pace for a nightcap or to lounge. The rooftop offers a fantastic view of the cityscape and is a great for private functions or if you need a peaceful place to hang out.
Response: Dear C. Pine: Thank you very much for this delightful review! We look forward to having you back with us in the near future! Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Mandy Jacqueline: The Lobby Bar in the Rosewood was amazing. Great service and wonderful drinks if you’re looking for high-class
Response: Dear Mandy: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are delighted you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you back with us. Sincerley, CUT DC and Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Shana Acquisto (Luxury Realtor): Stopped in for a drink on the rooftop. Beautiful atmosphere. Drinks were pricey and honestly a bit too much sugar for our liking but some may prefer that. Very friendly staff once we got up to the rooftop and great service.
Response: Dear Shana Acquisto: Thank you for your kind review of CUT Above and for your honest feedback. We have shared this with the team. We look forward to having you back with us soon. Sincerely Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Jay Gif: Staff were friendly and helpful. Valet offered to keep Tesla charged overnight which was great! The room was THE quietest hotel room we've ever stayed in (no HVAC noise at all). Bed was comfortable, bathroom nice although some paint bubbling in ceiling. The rooftop spa and bar looked amazing but too cold to enjoy. Deducted a star for value, was very expensive and just didn't quite deliver what I felt it should at that price...
Response: Dear Mr. Gif: Thank you for your kind review of our hotel, much appreciated! I have made note of your comments and am grateful for those. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the meantime. Sincerely, Gabor L. Vida Managing Director Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Tania Ferguson: The Rosewood DC is remarkably disappointing. More expensive than comparable rooms at the Ritz or Four Seasons, there are essentially no luxury amenities. The pool is the size of two hot tubs. Sadly, Cut the restaurant had a kitchen fire and therefore there is no way to get anything to eat at the hotel. I had to go grocery shopping. They did not offer any discount for this inconvenience. The did make the minibar complementary except for liquor….and there is essentially nothing to eat in the minibar. The room is incredibly small and the bathroom hard to manage in its size. The “partial canal view” is just a brick wall. One must stand to look out the window if water is to be seen-and only then with great focus. More accurately this is a brick wall view. There is no spa, the fitness facility is smaller than a bathroom with no modern equipment in it except a single peleton bike with bad pedals. The fitness facility is a really big disappointment-I’ve had to find a gym to go work out at. So I’ve had to leave the premises for food, workout, spa services….It’s a travesty to the Rosewood brand. They should close the hotel and renovate, modernize-or drop the prices to reflect the current facade.
Response: Dear Ms. Ferguson: Thank you for posting your thoughts about your recent stay with us. I am very sorry that it did not meet your expectations. We, too, are very sad that the incident in the kitchen has resulted in us not being able to occupy that space and provide the In-Room Dining you were hoping for - we hope to have this matter rectified shortly. I do hope that you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast we had set up in the lounge for all our guests. I also hope that the fresh fruit bowls that we delivered to you helped the situation. The room you occupied (about 420 square feet) does have unobstructed views of the canal, I believe the brick wall to which you are referring is the exterior wall of the building on the opposite side of the canal. As you know, there is no reference to a spa on our site but we do offer in-room massage services - one of which was offered to you with our compliments. We shall review the verbiage regarding the fitness center but the listing of equipment on the page is accurate. Overall, I am sorry that we didn't meet your expectations and hope that the reduction of your room rate that was offered helped to ease this a bit. I hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the near future and be able to deliver the experience you expect. Sincerely, Timothy Edgecombe Director of Sales

Mohsen: Enjoyed one week of stay at this hotel. Everything was perfect and felt personal. Fantastic staff.
Response: Dear Mohsen: Thank you so much for your kind comments - it was fantastic having both you and your fellow travellers with us. I sincerely hope we can welcome you back in the very near future! Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Kelly Smith: Great hotel. Near everything in Georgetown. Service is amazing. Nicest place in the area.
Response: Dear Ms. Smith: Thank you very much for your lovely review of Rosewood Washington, D.C. We sincerely hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the very near future. Sincerely, Timothy Edgecombe Director of Sales

Andrew Carmichael: Amazing hotel experience in a wonderful part of DC. It’s a smaller hotel that does a stellar job of balancing the finesse of a larger hotel with the intimacy of a boutique one. The team remembers everyone’s name and does to whatever they can to make your stay a memorable one.
Response: Dear Mr. Carmichael: Thank you very much for this wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the intimate experience that makes "The Gem of Georgetown" such a favourite among its guests. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Sincerely, Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Lisa Morin: This lovely, small hotel was well located in Georgetown. The room was nice, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The service from all staff was exceptional. They attended to every detail to make our stay a great one!
Response: Dear Ms. Morin: Thank you for your kind review of our hotel, much appreciated! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the meantime. Sincerely, Gabor L. Vida Managing Director Rosewood Washington, D.C.

Sequoia DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Crimson DC: what do users think?


Tahoma Lewis: Love the casual atmosphere! Our server was polite and attentive. The food was good. The pickled deviled eggs were esthetically pleasing and delicious. I had never had them before, and was not disappointed.

Arielle H: I have only had experience on the rooftop. We actually stumbled upon it one day. We walked in looking to just sit at the bar and one of the employees said why don’t you check out the rooftop and we said heck yeah! The views are great, the service is fairly fast, and the drinks were even better. - Will definitely be returning in the midst of summer.

Jenna DeFosse: Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience here. The service was extremely slow. Had to wait one hour for food! I have never had such a poor experience at a restaurant, this was very unfortunate. We just sat waiting and waiting for food…It was incredibly hard to flag someone down so after waiting one hour went up to someone and asked how much longer for the food. We deduced that the order was never put in originally because the food then arrived 20 mins later. Other patrons seemed to be having similar experiences. Food not coming, other customers left because food was taking so long. They seemed short staffed but the service was not good. It was expensive for these sub-par burgers. I’ve heard the rooftop bar is nice, so I’ll hold out for that.

S. K. Hill: Finally, I was able to visit Crimson and I loved it. From the awe-inspiring rooftop view of downtown DC to the very cool Whiskey Bar on the lower level, Crimson hit the ball out of the park. I loved their old-bay wings, kettle chips and ciders (apple and pineapple). It is in a great location in Chinatown. I will definitely come back here again and again. Easily FIVE STARS.

Nikkicole8890: I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for my trip to DC and we visited the rooftop bar while we were here! We loved the views and the drinks were good! He ordered a charcuterie board for us to share and it was amazing aside from the hunk of hard Parmesan they served us (it would'vemade more sense if it were Gouda or Munster)... they didn't give us any utensils originally so I had to go to the bar and ask and they only had plasticware which it was almost impossible to cut through the hard block of parmesan cheese we were served.. so that's why I took a star off. Otherwise, our experience and the ambiance was amazing!

BA R: Chinatown in D.C. Lucky for us the only place opened after 9 P.M on a Tuesday night. Great ambience. Good food. And they have a Whiskey Bar downstairs w/ live music. 10/10 we’ll be back.

Matthew Copper: When other dining establishments in the neighborhood had at least an hour wait, we stumbled upon Crimson. The seated us quickly and the service and food was wonderful! Will definitely be returning!!

Jack Kelly: A very busy venue with an exceptionally odd policy of confiscating water bottles of patrons in case they contained alcohol. I have been to countless bars, clubs, restaurants, taprooms and so on and have never ever encountered such a bizarre policy. We were a small group (4 adults) joining a small group (4-5 adults again) plus an infant which made the confiscation even more bizarre. The elevators are more protected than Fort Knox. The top floor was closed for a private event, but the host accidentally pressed the top floor button. She asked us to step out of the elevator (reminder, with infant so it was more of a nuisance than just adults) so the elevator could run up to the exclusive top floor party empty (because we weren’t even allowed near it let alone ride the elevator directly up and directly down). When it returned the host had to swipe her card and press the correct button to send it down to the basement. Again, countless bars, restaurants, venues and heck even corporate offices and have never experience something like that. Two truly bizarre incidents that soured an otherwise pleasant venue which leaves me with no desire to return and no reason to recommend to others. The food is good but the service messy and slow.

Lavada Walker: Well well well, how I just stumbled upon Brunch on The View. I was very undecided between Shrimp and Grits or the Brioche French Toast. I decided to go with the Shrimp and Grits, Wow!!!! It was sooooo darn good. If you want some good eats and drinks with a beautiful view hit up Crimson Saturday and Sunday 12pm-3pm

Dhruv Jaiswal: Great whiskey bar in the heart of DC ! A must try if you love whiskeys, they have all kinds of collections from all sorts for regions in the country and world ! The food is great as well ! Do try out the place and the rooftop in the great weather

The St. Regis Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Lisa: You will hear the food and beverage director before you see him. During our trip, he raised his voice multiple times quite angrily - it was quite concerning to hear him speak to guest service staff in such a way and that he was comfortable enough to do it in front of guests, too. Otherwise, my husband and I had an absolutely lovely stay. Our room was amazing and there were lots of friendly faces. I also especially enjoyed the pillows, and I wish I had thought to ask what type they were as they were super comfy.

Hampus Engstroem: Don't forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a hotel. This website will compare thousands of booking web sites and usually will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in this area. I have been staying here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure won't regret it. We went to St.Regis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn't disappoint. The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing. It's a set menu. I personally enjoyed the savory part more. While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the scones. I highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I'd like instead of having little of everything. They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though.

Sade Smith-Edwards: The hotel is amazing and me and my husband went here for the afternoon tea this passed Friday. It was our 5 year anniversary and we were thinking of staying the night after a fun day of hanging out in the city. Our opinion had changed when the person servicing us essentially never addressed me, even when I was the one asking questions. When my husband asked to have champagne, only HE got to taste it and I was blatantly ignored. She had her back to me as often as possible... That is until I was the one paying the check. I have NEVER, and I do mean never, been treated that way in any service capacity. This completely deterred me from book a night there. I'm sure the staff and hotel is wonderful but this was not a good look. And this was our 5 year anniversary. Probably will think twice before considering going here for a stay.

Squirrely: Five stars all around. The rooms are elegant, updated, clean, and comfortable. Each staff member I dealt with went above and beyond to help. I was especially pleased with the front desk employee who grabbed me a cup of coffee in the middle of the night when I had to catch an early flight. The location is excellent and there are plenty of restaurants and attractions within walking distance.

J. Jasmine Villanueva: My husband and I took a last minute trip to Washington and decided to take my parents to this facility and couldn't be happier. Rooms and service were nothing short of amazing. The staff at any St. Regis property NEVER disappoints. Oh, and it's literally a 3 minute walk from the White House and restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone who is visiting Washington DC.

Sarah Morris: Unfortunately this was a disappointing and underwhelming experience. The hotel is pretty but lacks 5 star service. I have dust allergies and spent most of my time here with a clogged nose which miraculously cleared up when outdoors!! I assume this was to a lack of cleaning of their filtering system. The staff did their best and offered complimentary breakfast but I really cannot excuse having a poor night's sleep in a hotel? Certainly not worth the price ticket and I would choose elsewhere if I return.

Liem Huynh: We stayed for one night in the Metropolitan Suite in June 2022. The room desperately needs renovation and service was nonexistence. Disappointing experience overall. No prearrival email, no response when I emailed the butler service for restaurant reservation, zero communication from the butler during the entire stay. Unfriendly lobby staff, no greeting, had to open the door on my own at times. The Metropolitan Suite was old and in need of a renovation. Dirty pillow cases, worn out carpets, water from faucet smelled a little punky and we even found pieces of shattered glass on the floor. Only positive experience was the check-in, after that everything went down hill. Recommend trying something else while you’re in DC. Much better experience at the Ritz Carltons if you’re a Marriott fan.

Joe J.: Amazing tea experience in DC, probably the best in terms of service, flavor, presentation and selection of teas. The cherry blossom touch is a nice and pleasant surprise. Although it is on the pricey end, definitely recommend!

Ayesha SH: I attended the Whimsy event on April 1. Pros and cons below: Pros: Wine was good. We ordered a Napa cab so it was costly. Ambiance was decent. The best part was their waiters who were super friendly and hospitable. Cons: I was told parking would be validated prior to attending the event. On the day of they refused. We spent upwards of $600 and they wouldn’t validate the parking. Food was ok. I didn’t feel that great later at night. The princess thing was childish, hilarious, and unnecessary. Adults attend these kinds of events not kids. Overall not worth the money they charged us.

Dacian Reece-Stremțan: We've been living at PPT since 2000 and currently raising three children here. We like our neighbors and the neighborhood. We are located short walking distance from two excellent grocery stores, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, short walking distance from the Foggy Bottom Metro stop, within walking distance from the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. The kids walk or bike to the neighborhood school, School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens.

Idaho Terrace Apartments: what do users think?


Kriss Wagner: My daughter and I have been residents at Idaho Terrace since 2006. When we knew we'd be living in D.C., she said the only place she wanted to live would be I.T. I see why. The apartments are spacious and well-tended. When there is an issue, the building staff are easy to reach and punctual and thorough. There are building staff members who have been here upwards of 20 years! We highly recommend making this your home. The leasing office staff is fantastic. No matter the issue, or just stopping by to say Good Morning, you will be well-received. The professionalism is great, they are friendly, well-informed, and anxious to help. With all of this, plus a security building, utilities included in the rent, onsite laundry facility, next door to a small market, and a safe neighborhood just four blocks from District 2 police department, there is no reason for us to be anywhere else!
Response: Kriss, thank you for your kind words about our on-site team and for leaving us a review. We're so happy to read that you and your daughter have enjoyed being a part of the Idaho Terrace community since 2006!

Zara M: I moved here last year from NY and have had nothing but good experiences! The management is really kind and good about communication. Maintenance requests are always completed timely. The location is perfect; close to cute coffee shops and restaurants as well as grocery stores, and only a short walk to the beautiful National Cathedral. The units are older and not fancy or anything, but clean and functional. I don’t regret moving here!
Response: Zara, we're so glad to hear about your experience calling Idaho Terrace home. Thank you for the great rating!

Sean Murphree: I really enjoyed staying there! The staff are great, the events are fun, the facilities are clean and the move-in and move-out processes are efficient and easy. The rents are competitive, especially for the area, and I would definitely give them a look if you're planning to move to Northwest DC/Cathedral Heights.
Response: Sean, it's great to read that you had a positive experience calling Idaho Terrace home! Thanks so much for the kind words and rating.

Natalie Hill: I've lived at Idaho Terrace now for over four years, and the experience has been amazing. The building and the grounds are extremely well-kept, clean, up to date. The management is kind, reliable, and available, from those working in the office to the maintenance workers on site. They are so quick to respond to any question or request, and all work orders I've submitted have been taken care of same-day. The location is in a beautiful neighborhood and conveniently located near grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, bus lines, and the metro, not to mention parks, trails, and the National Cathedral. Such a wonderful experience, community, and place to live -- I very highly recommend it.
Response: Natalie, thank you for extending your recommendation and being a part of the community for over four years! It's so great to know that you've had such a positive experience calling Idaho Terrace home.

Laura Kuhlman: I lived at Idaho Terrace for a little over two years. Like many people during the pandemic I spent more time than I ever wanted to in my studio apartment in the past year and I have to thank the wonderful staff (Olivia, Matt, James, Adil, Amy, others I'm sure I'm forgetting) ​at Idaho Terrace for making my time living there a pleasant experience. The front office and maintenance staff are friendly, professional, responsive and communicative. The building itself is well kept and clean, and the neighborhood is great (my favorite thing to do was walk the Glover-Archibold trail that's close by). You can get a little more for your money in terms of amenities outside of DC (i.e. MD/VA) but if this is the area you want/need to be in, you will feel at home at Idaho Terrace.
Response: Laura, we're so glad to hear that you've been having a great experience living at Idaho Terrace for over two years! Thank you so much for shouting out our team and leaving us this amazing review.

Nathalie: This apartment is such a wonderful place to live! I’m in my mid 20’s and have lived here for 5 years and I couldn’t be happier. The staff is so responsive and helpful. If you have any questions or need any help with anything, they are always at your service. Especially the maintenance team. Overall, just a wonderful staff and a comforting place to live. You won’t regret it!
Response: Nathalie, thank you for leaving Idaho Terrace this amazing review. It's so great to hear that you've been loving being a part of the community for five years!

Stephanie Best: I lived here for over 2 years and was truly happy to call Idaho Terrace my home. The team in the management office were always friendly and very helpful. The maintenance supervisor, James, always went out of his way to help the residents with whatever they needed. The entire team was always professional and did a wonderful job at communicating any information to the community. The building was safe, clean, and it is in the most perfect NW DC location. I highly recommend making Idaho Terrace your new home!
Response: Thank you for your kind review, Stephanie! We are so glad that you are enjoying your time at Idaho Terrace.

Abebe Mengistu: Great management, Great Staff, Great Service. The Bernstein management COVID-19 Emergency Fund Has helped many in need like myself at this unprecedented difficult times. The Manager Ms. Olivia Fitzgibbon is attentive and has great communication skills. The property management Amy has extraordinary personality in reaching out to tenants.
Response: Abebe, thank you for taking the time to shout out our team and leave Idaho Terrace this great review! We couldn't be happier to hear that you've been loving being a part of our community.

Scip Barnhart: The building is very clean, and the lobby especially is very welcoming to visitors and residents. The staff is very quick to respond to requests and support. Life near major universities can be trying when students have to meld with working class people. But the staff do there best to keep noise and commotion in check. The laundry room is clean, the gym is well stocked and clean. The trash shoots are kept as well as can be expected. I am very glad to live here.
Response: Scip - Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are happy to hear you are enjoying your experience at Idaho Terrace. Thanks again!

Anastasiya Gulak: I came from another state last year and was warmly accommodated by the Idaho Terrace management staff. It is very important when you reach out and receive prompt feedback or help especially when you are coming for afar. That personal support and care was necessary at the time. The facility is maintained well (despite its age), and the management finds creative ways to engage and help its residents.
Response: Anastasiya - Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and share your experience with our team. We are so happy to read that you have enjoyed your experience at Idaho Terrace. Thanks again.
