Firefly: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Madhatter: what do users think?


Tariro Chimhandamba: I really liked the Alice in wonderland vibe. We were seated immediately. They had a Wednesday drink special. The food was good definitely would recommend this place for people looking for great food stop in DC.

Jeffery Montgomery: Nice, popular brunch spot. Hangover Bowl was a very filling and hearty portion of food. The decor was "Alice in Wonderland" theme, the other guests all seemed friendly. Would recommend for a nice dive bar with friends for a hot meal with cold drinks.

Halimat Oduye: Madhatter was truly amazing! Top tier experience, our group hosted a Women's History Month Brunch. Missy (Manager) was amazing, she created a menu with our organizations name on it which made our experience wonderful. Hannah was our server and she was kind, responsive, funny, charming. I can't say enough, thank you for making our event so special.

Ryan: Wonderful service at the bar. Delicious good and good cocktails. Great location

Jas L.: I want to start by first saying I usually do not write reviews, especially the bad ones but after this experience, I felt it was necessary. First, the food, it was unseasoned and unappealing. I ordered the crab benedict, BIG MISTAKE. It was literally bland crabmeat on top of an english muffin with the poached egg, it wasn't even in a "crab cake" form. My boyfriend ordered the steak and eggs, another mistake. The steak was bland and tasteless, the "toast" was rock hard, and the brunch potatoes were unseasoned. The mimosas were fairly priced for bottomless, but they too, were disappointing. The juice was watered down and full of pulp with barely any champagne. Then to top it off, the bartender, Freddie got into a loud argument with my boyfriend when my boyfriend asked him for plastic cups for our table because ours were dirty or had gnats in them, yikes. Lastly, our server, we had many missing pieces to our orders and our checks were wrong and had to be corrected twice. Not sure if it was a comprehension issue or a staffing issue as our server was the only one working the dining room during our visit. I hope to visit again soon because I always heard good reviews but I will not return for brunch.

Un Utilisateur Google: Tried the Thursday 1$ beer offer. And even if it tasted like water, the atmosphere was incredible. Kind staff. HUGE shoutout to the DJ that despite playing only old and new HITS music, mixed them perfectly to never let the dance floor down. Total blast 💥

Alok Sinha: Stopped by here for a quick lunch. It was a middle of the weekday so there wasn't many people but I enjoyed my time here. I had the chicken parmesan lunch special and it was delicious. The price was fair, and the staff were fast and friendly. Would recommend stopping by here if you are in the area.

Usman Ahmed: I purchased 2 bottles of corona at the upstairs bar and the total came to $18. I wanted to socialize so I asked the bartender what his name was. He responded “I don’t give my name out to people who don’t tip”. The rest of the staff is usually friendly so I was surprised. Their boss is not paying them enough and it translates to poor customer service if you do not pay their wages yourself. This is not the great depression anymore. Pay your workers living wages

Hannah Collins: food was good! atmosphere and cocktails were lacking. my partner and I both had sandwiches and onion rings, pretty tasty. the vibe was very odd - the bar seemed ok but we went in the dining room where we were the only guests and it was oddly upscale compared to the bar area. the cocktails were lame, we didn’t have the mad hatter hat maybe that would have been better, i had a frozen margarita which was ok. my number one issue was that it was very dirty. my cup was dirty. the water glass was positively stuck to the table. the paintings have obviously never been wiped down.

Jéssica Bittencourt: The place is great, they play all kinds of music and me and my friends would love to go there. Their hat drink is delicious and pretty big and fair. It’s really worth it.

Rewind: what do users think?


Ladee Jay: Ok where to start, they said you would get an experience.. it definitely was an experience a HORRIBLE one, we made a reservation and still waited 40 mins to seat. Ordering food was horrific we waited 25 to 45 minutes for this bottomless brunch food to even arrive at our table. Smh and when the food came it was cold. The food was decent but cold once arrived. we had to ask several times for our food and yet still didn't get it or we got the wrong order 3 times. This was our 1st and absolute last time coming to this place. The manager offered no discount except he offered drinks. How can you drink on an empty stomach? .. I'd prefer the food over the drinks if it had ever come. Yup we won't be back terrible service unattentive and waited entirely too long for food and service.

Alethea Smith: Food is great but space is really small. We went for brunch and was given seating with no real dining table. The French toast and wings were amazing.

Patricia Gills: Great food. Great music. Great service. 10/10 recommend.

Clarissa Martinez: This place is whatever. The food is ok but the service is very mediocre. The hosts are literally there for decoration. All they do is stand there and point at where to sit, they don’t even walk you to the table. People pay in the front and none of the hosts take care of them, the servers do. They literally stand there staring at people. I had never seen hosts as decoration. One of the hosts was cleaning our table (bc the waiter asked her too, he was busy. Otherwise she wouldn’t have moved a finger) after we waited 10 min to have it clean and we were repeatedly saying “thank you!” And she literally rolled her eyes at us and didn’t say anything. The servers are not attentive at all, and they bring you the wrong things. I asked for salt and they brought me an empty shaker ??? See pics for reference. I asked for water when I asked for the shaker and they never brought me anything. We wanted to get dessert but after this treatment, we didn’t want to give this place any more money. The quesadilla is whatever. Nothing special honestly. The chicken and waffle is good though. The chicken has a weird spice to it. The waffle is really good though. The fries are good too. We came at night and saw two fights break out outside the restaurant. This place is located in a very shady part of town. It’s probably good during the day when the clubs are closed I guess. Don’t come at night. The ambiance of the place is nice, the decor and music. It’s a shame that they have such bad service.

Soroyah B.: Chicken was a bit dry. The person that I was with ordered the sliders & she mention they was also dry. Drinks were really good though. And the decor was really cute !

kelli johnson: Rewind was ok. The service was pretty good. I had the Cap'n crunch french toast.. best I've ever had! Everything else I tried was just ok.

Tyé Grays Real Estate: Food was yummmmy!! BUT Service was subpar. Slow and unattentive. Was Double charged twice, we asked for it to be removed, one of the servers said, and I quote "we're too busy to adjust and remove items from the bill. So instead, order a drink or dessert, free of charge " let's just saw were we're beyond taken back!!

Val Sheppard: Really good food!! I had shrimp and grits, daughter had Quesadillas. Place could use some updating..decor is kinda of all over the place...but it's a cute spot. Good music. I didnt like plastic cups with my dinner though..other than that..its cool!

Mayra Galeana: The food was extremely tasty, I didn't leave anything on my plate. The staff are all spectacular and for the ladies that go in by themselves to just enjoy a good beer and meal, they got your back.

Honest Guide: Monday night date. Not crowded and great ambience. Super friendly staff and tasty food.

Unconventional Diner: what do users think?


Zeyu Hu: Went to Unconventional Diner for both brunch and dinner and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint at all. Brunch: Got three different items to share for brunch, and each was unique in its own way but complimented each other so well. The shrimp and grits were perfect. The BBQ shrimp had an amazing smokey smell which really made it stand out. The biscuits were also amazing, nice and crispy and the house made sausage was great. The blueberry pancakes were the fluffiest I’ve ever had, a great sweet treat to end the meal. Dinner: Came back for dinner a week later and it blew me out of the water again. As the name suggests, the menu has a large variety and when the waiter tells you you can’t go wrong with anything, they ain’t lying. We got such a variety of food - from French to southern, Chinese stir fry to Cuban. It just all works so well. Bottom line: A must visit if you are in DC. The best wait staff and service. But remember to book ahead!

Claire Mizutani: Went out to dinner with my family and a friend from school. Great food! I really enjoyed the mezze and the Mac n cheese. Speedy service and great labeling on the menu for those with dietary restrictions. I wish that the outdoor seating area had heaters but now that the weather is getting warmer that may be less of an issue

Christopher Guarin: Was in town to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival. We made a point to stop in for some brunch before walking all over town. We were definitely not disappointed. Everything we tried was delicious! From the drinks, to the Everything Lox, and Chicken and Waffles....every bite was amazing. We will be back for more on our next trip!

Eric Lee: Got the cheeseburger and fried chicken. Both were phenomenal. Simple dishes but everything was cooked and seasoned so well. Price for these dishes were affordable. Great vibe as well, pretty large space. Will be back to try more!

Queen Melissa: Wonderful for family outing , a date and friends brunch. Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness was good. The customer service and server was really nice. My kids loved everything and they are usually picky eaters. This was my first time eating shrimps and grits all I can say it was amazing. Overall,we were a satisfied family and will be back again.

Ben Multak: Unconventional diner dishes but delicious flavors. Everything I’ve tried here has hit and the restaurant itself is a well oiled machine. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area. Really enjoyed the Crab Fritters and Fried Chicken

Sirius Fidelity: This was one of my favorite food places on my trip. The place was a pretty good size, clean, and bright. There also appeared to be outside dining as well. I ordered the kid size portion of the Blueberry Lavender Pancakes as pictured, and the Shrimp and Grits. Nothing short of amazing. Prices were reasonable and the portion sizes good. I highly recommend this place.

Christal Young: I love a place that has vegan as well as non-vegan options. This place was so good, I came back two days in a row. Their kale nachos were just superb and their cauliflower salad with falafel was also delicious and filling. The colors and ambiance are also nicely done. There are several dining spaces, including indoor and outside seating, each with its own vibe.

ReCreate Artworks: I found this gem about a 20 minute walk north of the mall. I cannot recommend it enough. There was plenty of seats, the staff was quick and efficient, and the restaurant itself was stunning. It makes you feel luxurious without having the price tag that usually comes with it. It’s very affordable but the quality of food is beyond the price. I got a double shot of espresso and the Brussel Sprouts with Fried Egg. 10/10.

Chunhee Hong: We had buttermilk pancake, corned beef hash, cappuccino and rise & shine. All delicious! The customer service and server were really nice. Overall,we were satisfied and will be back again to try other menu!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Town Tavern DC: what do users think?


Jessa L: So excited to find that not only the Giants/49ers bar is in my neighborhood but also that the staff is absolutely fantastic and the comedy night is great! Great vibe. Friendly bartenders.. Can't wait to catch a game there!! Gotta love the Harry Potter theme too
Response: Thank you for the awesome review, Jessa! We appreciate you and can't wait til you visit us again soon~

Louise Gretschel: Classic, slightly sticky bar with wood paneling all around and a bartender who can sing like Usher. Its not a dirt cheap dive, but it's a good place to enjoy some trivia or comedy nights with a chill, local vibe.
Response: Thanks Louise! We’re so glad you appreciate her just as much as we do. You’re a real one- come visit with us anytime… 🎉🎉🎉

Aminah Imani: I come here for the comedy shows upstairs its always packed and a good time! Seems like a great bar for sport events as well. Definitely recommend.

Gigi Dacis: Thursday bartender Bianca was amazing!! The other hosts were nice as well! A welcome change from the impersonal manners of most DC interactions! Parking is sooo bad that its a disservice for all businesses on 18th st. A 20 story parking lot is desperately needed. Comedy night was nice...dress casually and get there early for parking and seating.
Response: Thanks for the review Gigi! Please come visit again soon~

Felipe Vicente: I'm very happy to learn that the Giants/49ers bar is not just in my neighborhood, but also that the service is wonderful and the comedy night is terrific.

Stephen Ly: This is an amazing place to be at on that Friday night where you wanna have a fun time. I was thrown a surprise birthday party here and the owner was nothing but gracious (pun intended) and easy to work with. She made sure that all of the details, supplies and everything that was needed was in place. The prices are fair (especially being in Adam's Morgan), the food is great, and the service is top notch. I would not hesitate in going here. Book your uber/lyft and head there ASAP! Throw your parties! You won't regret it.
Response: Thank you, Stephen!! You all were wonderful :)

Seth Klass: Ordered a grilled sandwich and salad on grubhub. My god, the worst food I've ever had in DC. The chicken was dark meat grilled to be unto like a thing of charcoal. And tasted like something out of chernobyl. The pics on the site must have been taken from another site, because THAT food looked delicious . Even the roll tasted bad and had the consistency of a boulder. How can you make a roll taste bad? If i could give negative infinity stars I surely would. Next time i want a pigeon sandwich I'll just go to a park and cook it myself. Ugh.

Darius Moulton: Had a lovely night outside with some apps and euro beers. We came on a Sunday night where they had canvasses, a muse and paints for everyone to use. Also, a great kava cocktail!

Kyle del Rio: Great bar with very friendly staff and good prices

Lora Mitchell: Came out for a hosted event by Paint Nite abd had a fabulous time! My friends and I had a great time the drinks and food were delicious

Dirty Habit: what do users think?


Olivia M. Wilson: Went to Dirty Habit for brunch and it was good! The fruit was really fresh and the potatoes were crisp. However, the service was decent and they only have bar seats available. Maybe that’s because we arrived an hour before they closed for the afternoon. Either way, the food made up for it. I would definitely like to try their dinner menu.
Response: Hi Olivia — Thank you so much for the kind words and for the feedback! We take all feedback seriously, so we’ll be sure to discuss ways to make our service more efficient. We're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please let us know. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Austin Graff: Located in Penn Quarter close to the Chinatown Metro Station, Dirty Habit makes for a great date night or group dinner. It's a spacious restaurant with several beautifully-decorated dining rooms, bars and a heated outdoor patio. Here's my wife and my experience going on a February Saturday evening: 1) Food: The food menu is organized first courses, mains and sides. My wife and I love little courses so we each ordered our own French onion soup and then split the beets four ways, watermelon tartare, burrata, crudo and whipped butter potatoes. For dessert, they brought over the churros and an innovative banana split. All the food was excellent and well presented, but th watermelon tartate takes the cake. It's entirely vegan and the flavor combination is out of this world. 2) Drink: They have a full cocktails, beer and wine menu. If you don't have the wine, you can bring your own if you call ahead. (They'll charge a corkage fee.) Off the menu, they make mocktails if you tell them what flavors you like. My wife's citrus mocktail was well made. I ordered the Amazonian and it was excellent with the coconut whip. 3) Service: Our service was on point. We were seated the moment we arrived for our 8:30 p.m. reservation and our server was efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable on the menu. 4) Experience: From the service to the atmosphere to the food, it was a great dining experience. They follow all pandemic protocols. Despite being full of all kinds of people, we felt far enough away and covid-safe. 5) Parking: This can be a challenge being in downtown, but we found street parking for $3 by the Rice Bar along 9th Street NW near Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Blvknative: Going to dirty habit for Valentines Day was top tier! The ambience was everything I was expecting! The deal as far as food and drinks were top of the line! Truly a captivating experience for my company and I.

Shannon A. McGhee: Top tier restaurant/ bar atmosphere. Food was very delicious. We had a private party in one there spaces. Food and alcohol was served. The staff were more than exceptional. Everything was jaw dropping that night. The bars was fully stocked, the outdoor seating Area was a magical scene setting the tone for the evening. I'll be back as this has become my favorite spot now. See ya soon.

Heather Walker: Amazing beautiful place, food was great. Our server unfortunately wasn't the friendliest or most attentive. Prices are pretty high for what you get. 20% Gratuity was taken out automatically.
Response: Hi Heather — Thanks for stopping by, and we appreciate the kind words! But we’re sorry to hear there were certain aspects that we didn’t deliver on. We’ve noted your comments for the next team meeting, but if there’s anything more you’d like to mention or talk to someone about, please email stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.com and she’ll be happy to help!

Katlin B.: Best French onion soup I ever had! The vibe is trendy and the crowd is very eclectic. The food and drinks were amazing! Will return for soup. Thanks to the awesome host and staff! There is also a nice outdoor area as well.

Christina Hollimon: My husband took me here for their valentine's day special. It was a 4 course menu. 95$ a person and the food was subpar. I ordered filet mignon medium and it came out rare twice. We frequent placed of this caliber and don't expect to pay this amount for a under cooked steak three times, including the one they sent me home with. The soup and tuna tar tar dish were subpar as well. Honestly while I appreciate my hubby's efforts we were both disappointed with the food for the 360 dollars spent after tax and tip. The 2 stars is for the service

Aisha C: I will never spend money at this restaurant again. Absolutely ruined my NYE experience with sub par service and below average food. My group of 4 opted to do the NYE 3 course meal with a wine/cocktail pairing and it was a complete mess. Service was 1/10 as the waiter had to come back to "double check" our order minutes after writing it down. Every single order came out incorrect and we found ourselves super disappointed and unamused by the 2nd course. I had to call the manager who listened to our complaints and rewrote our order for a third time and even still the orders came out wrong!! At this point our night was ruined and already downhill but we were given purfuse apologies and a measly comp of our 2 of 4 cocktails and a water ($100 value) The bill was still around $600 including a 20% automatic gratuity forthe 4 of us and it was absolutely not worth it for the horrible service, mispaired food, incorrect drinks, and condescending waiter (who later apologized) we had to endure. Though managers really did try their best to restart our experience it was extremely disappointing for the seeming high end meal experience they advertised. Definitely not how I intended to spend my last meal of the year and definitely won't be back.

c clark: Good food, classy spot that I felt not dressed to par. I had just got in town and had on nike shorts and t shirt. But it was cool. Service was great. I'd definitely go back again
Response: Hi C Clark — Thanks so much for the kind words, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Lamina Richardson: I was a little disappointed when i visited dirty habit. It’s aesthetically pleasing but i wasn’t impressed with the food. I got the district chicken and the black rice that’s paired with it was very gritty. The dish was also paired with okra and string beans. The veggies weren’t sautéed at all and had no flavor. They literally tasted like microwaved veggies that were previously frozen. The chicken was actually good but the parings sucked so it wasn’t filling. Nice atmosphere though. Really good espresso martini! If i go again it would only be for drinks.
Response: Hi Lamina — Thank you for the kind words as well as the feedback. We hope you had a fun time overall, and we'll be taking your comments about the district chicken into our next meeting with the kitchen team. We take all feedback very seriously and we're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please contact stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.c o m and we'll be happy to continue the conversation. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Cynthia M: Absolutely phenomenal experience!! Husband took me to celebrate my birthday here and not only did we have amazingly delicious food, but the service was impeccable. I also appreciated the fun atmosphere they created for everyone and thought it was really nice being able to sit all around the kitchen and being able to observe the chefs create the dishes. We didn’t do the wine pairing but did order some cocktails, which were also spectacular (they do give you a few for free too!). For my birthday, they served me a cheesecake at the end and were very kind to help us take a Polaroid photo for us to keep! We were also sent home with a delicious milk bread. Absolutely enjoyed this experience and adored this Japanese inspired menu. Thank you for a memorable night, minibar!!

Ashley Evans: The cocktail experience was phenomenal! Such a fun experience for two people. We got the black truffle grilled cheese as a snack - delicious!

By Night We Can Be More: It was awesome! I had no idea that I can taste so much flavors! I am sure we will come back in there. Atmosphere is great, you feel like part of the kitchen, having fun, enjoying the food... It's wonderful experience!

Yolanda Zhou: Everything was beautiful at minibar, even the bathroom. The service, presentation, and overall experience was amazing. The pacing was a little slow but was made up by the chefs plating the dishes right in front of you. My favorites were the corn and caviar, soy chicharron, nori senbei, and strawberry milk. We tried the gin and juice cocktail from barmini, which was wonderful as well.

Jesse: Japanese-inspired chef counter experience. Very elegent and minimal; inventive preparation; and unique and surprising.

Douglas Anderson: Best dining experience in the US. From the staff, to the facility to the food. OUTSTANDING

Angelique Garcia: Such an awesome experience! By far one of the best restaurants in D.C... The only thing is I wouldn’t gave gotten the wine pairing if I had known what I’d be served. Only one red, fairly sweet whites for my palate, and the pours were more of a tasting than a pairing. The food and service were impeccable though. Thank you Minibar chefs and José Andrés!

George Junca: Amazing food and totally fantastic experience, service is totally on point and elevates the dining experience overall. The wine pairings were perfect and really liked some if the playful elements like the bahn mi that looks like is served on roll but is actually made of apple, the chicharron that has no pork, etc.

Matt Watier: Second time here and it was a treat. The real standouts was the lobster and duck egg, and the forest floor mushroom dish. A great example of how modern gastronomy can bring together flavors texture and temperatures that traditionally cooked food can not.

Victor Wang: An out of this world experience with some of the most whimsical and delicious food. Service was very attentive and watching the chefs create art in front of your eyes was magical. Be sure to make reservations as soon as they release them online. The wine pairings all worked perfectly and everyone was extremely knowledgeable.

Arash Tavakoli: I had one of my best dining experiences in this place. The breakfast is easily enough for two people. The staff are super welcoming. Try their tarts and that tastes like heaven. Been very happy with the pancakes and hey they bring you a whole container of coffee. I also really liked that when we ordered one breakfast for two, they put it in two different plates. Thoughtful! So enjoy!

Calvin Thumma: My wife and I went here after a recommendation from a co-worker of mine. The area we are from has a number very good bistro and brunch locations but this meal blew them out of the water. My French toast was by far the best I’ve ever had, the bacon was crisp, potatoes were perfect and the eggs yummy. My wife’s meal was equally delicious, she order eggs, potatoes, toast and sausage. Nicole was our server and made sure every was perfect and never left our drinks get close to empty

Paul LaVigne: Enjoyed the bakery treats we had the other day so much we came back for brunch. Be sure to call ahead for reservations as this is a very busy place with longer wait times. The food was excellent. I do recommend you come and enjoy this place when you’re in town

Angelica Norman-Beltran: Walked past this restaurant on my way home and decided to stop and have dinner. I'm so glad I did. My waitress was very nice and sociable. I ordered their Lavender Mule from the cocktail menu, Loaded Tater tots to start and decided to go with Avocado toast for my dinner, and finished everything off with their seasonal Cherry Blossom Churros. Every thing tasted amazing, I'd caution on using too much of the ranch sauce on the tater tots. It added an extra salt flavor that my mouth didn't like, use it sparingly. The Avocado toast was worth it the price. The poached eggs were made perfectly and there was a lot more avocado than I expected so that was a pleasant surprise. (Note it can be spicy with they peppers they use). All in all I'm happy I found this place while on a walk. I'll need to stop by again and try out a nother dish!

Jessica Zheng: Pretty good brunch location! For drinks, we just got a caramel iced coffee and a vanilla milkshake. Coffee was okay, didn’t really taste the caramel flavor at all. For our meals- I got the Big Mark Breakfast. The sausage was very tasty but the eggs and hash brown were pretty bland, I ended up using dipping them in ketchup. Boyfriend got the salmon toast, that was surprisingly tasty! I was just weirded about eating raw salmon as my first meal of the day but it caught me by surprise!

Tilak Kalaria: Absolutely spectacular dining experience at Tex’s Bulletin for brunch. Service was awesome in this spot with a great ambience and location in DC. The food was excellent too so much to choose from. Their avacado toast has such great attention to detail. The S’mores tart was special! To better enhance our awesome experience someone kind patron paid for my party of 5’s brunch!! Highly recommend Ted’s!!

Amanda Pokrzywa: Friendly service, great atmosphere, insanely delicious food! Highly recommend the BBQ & Bacon Bloody Mary! There's something special about their homemade tarts. The Huevos Rancheros hit all the flavor profiles I was looking for.

Fiorella Hidalgo: Went to get the special cherry blossom dessert during the Cherry Blossom Festival! Smoked Salmon Benedict is one of the best I ever had before! (I like it better than Kramer’s!). It took a while to get seated on a Sunday morning, so try to make a reservation in advance!

Hannah: Okay. I’m excited to review this place as an avid brunch food lover. To begin: we were told that the wait time was 40mjn and given a buzzer. Great. No problem, totally understand. To be fair, we hadn’t made reservations that morning. We wait 50min. They then tell us to wait another 30 minutes. My pregnant and hungry friend got it changed to 20min. Still. Once inside, the vibes were great. Our server was fast and attentive. Huge food portions and cute decor. Definitely not worth the weird waiting times, but will definitely make reservations next time!

Jacob Grice: Breakfast was awesome!!! Staff was super nice, restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was uplifting and calming at the same time. Food was very good and filling , you must try the cheese cake!! Defiantly will be back again!!

Ryan Arnt: I found this place about 20 years ago. I love german food and drinks and they do a very good job. The Hunter's Schnitzel, sausage plate, red cabbage cucumber salad are all great. Kind of a hole in the wall place but I always enjoy eating here on every trip to DC.

WABBA: A good around tasty menu, with well cooked traditional meals including Pork or Chicken Snitzel. Fair priced drinks 🍸 adds to the enjoyable experience. A good dinner choice 1 night whilst you're here in Washington DC.

Vasyl Zhepikov: Hands down the best german food in US. 🇩🇪 It is not cheap imitation , but really good authentic food. Hand made sauercraft. 🤤 On pics: Sausage combo with authentic mustard. Baked brie with jam and fruits. And of course German beer. The interior is the most pleasing to say the least.

Landis Rojas: My first time here! I felt very comfortable. Also I forgot to take food pictures because the german food it was super tasty! The service is super good and attentive. Yo need a reservation in this restaurant and you really feel in s German restaurant! I really Recommend it!

Devin Nguyen: I enjoy Old Europe restaurant for its service, antique atmosphere, and certified-authentic German food! As someone who has visited Germany and Austria, I can confirm that the food is cooked according to traditional German flavors and preparation. The images I have included illustrate the restaurant’s quality and art of German culture and cuisine. My experience at this family-owned business makes me feel as if I entered a time capsule into history.

Mohan Sun: This is one of the best German restaurants in town - excellent food, great beers, and friendly owner and staff. Back before Covid, there was this old gentlemen in suspenders that would always play piano on weekends. That’s always one of my fondest memories. I had my birthday celebrations there a couple of times and they were always a blast. This restaurant veteran opened its doors in 1948 serving local customers, so please come and support them! Plus, you really can’t go wrong with a schnitzel and boot of beer!

K K: Wow! Why haven't I been going here every week? Great food, elevated flavors, friendly service, nice German beer list, bus boy that plays showtimes on the piano...c'mon you can't find this anywhere else in DC! Treated me like a king for Father's day. Wish they had a patio... but that is minor. What a hidden secret.
Response: Hi K K, thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. Please come back and visit us soon!

Sam Chin: A long time local business with good authentic food and warm atmosphere. Amazing steins, cuckoo clock, and crests. They actually speak German and are good people. Support local!!

Darren H: I have been going to this place for about 18 years and love it. The desserts have recently gotten better. I always complained that the Sacher Torte was a tad dry, but this no longer seems to be the case. The appetizers, beer, and dinner are all so good that I have a hard time ordering sometimes.

Rinat Hadashi: We ate dinner: April treat, potato pancakes and schnitzel. Beverage and wine. Paid 92$.The food was tasty and very beautifully placed on the plate. The service was super nice and helpful.Recommended!

nakea fountaine: BEAUTIFUL PLACE!! I would never recommend! Everything was nasty to me and my friends. None of us enjoyed our food! And the service was terrible! Banana pudding taste like the box and not in a we hooked it up kind of way but straight bland and almost chalky. Steak and eggs was nasty eggs bland, shrimp and grits nasty, bread pudding was like someone messed up baking and just served it eggs Benedict w salmon nasty They didn’t bring condiments and the server would walk away so fast and be gone for so long. AND TO TOP IT OFF MY FRUIT WAS NOT RIPE IT WAS ROTTEN! not to mention I ordered fresh fruit with yogurt and honey, I wasn’t informed when I ordered that they had ran out of yogurt! Oh and my salad didn’t come w the croutons either but I seen them on other salads. Very dissatisfied, and we paid a pretty penny too. I would suggest you all hire more staff on your really busy time of the year or whatever I think if you had more staff a lot of this would’ve been avoided. Also I love my Hispanic people but it’s difficult to get help from them when I can’t communicate w them so the server needed to come back but I couldn’t find her. Very frustrating!

Tikesha Ross: Belly was the best server ever she made our experience so great! The food was good the music was good. Me and my friends really enjoyed ourselves….. Thank you Bellly ❤️❤️
Response: THank you so much! Please come again!

TeQuila Carroll: This place is cute. Like IG worthy but that’s it lol Went here for brunch on Sunday, of course, and it was just OK. No valet parking. They take reservations but I think b/c EVERYBODY has been here it was not packed at all. Suitable for all ages (21-50). The food was subpar. Bottle service was a joke to me. They have hookah, electric, which was very different than your standard coal option. It’s a set menu for brunch. $35 for a appetizer, entree, and dessert. You can order Mimosas by the glass or opt for the “bottle service”(6 mini bottles of champagne) with a complimentary juice. If you want extra juice it’s $10. Don’t let the camera guy fool you. It’s $20 a photo. They do have a DJ but they seemed inexperienced. I’m glad I went b/c it was so hyped. But I’m wouldn’t return.

Briana “Bre” Williams: A very nice and chic lounge. The decor is amazing and the seafood mac n' cheese is delish. Plus, the drinks were on point whenever they arrived. The downside, the wait staff was a little slow. Overall, it was a great time and we were celebrating a birthday so if you're thinking about a birthday gathering this is a great place to start. They also serve smokeless hookah (that's the first time we had heard of it but we liked it) that you have to order from the hookah girl.
Response: Thank you so much for taking your time to write a review and support our business!

Shavon Alicia B: I enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere. The food not so much. Our waiter was super sweet and nice. This more of a vibe, smoke hookah spot and a light meal like wings. Not a really Brunch ,due to the food being just ok.
Response: Thank you Shavon for sharing your expeence with us! We are working hard to get better on every level!Please, tell us what exactly did you order?

Brittani George: I will continue to support this business and make sure to come back. I went here to see my first drag brunch for my bachelorette party (part 2), and the place, food, staff, and performers were all top-notch.
Response: Dear Brittani! Thank you so much! We work hard to get that reaction from our beloved customers! And we are very happy it’s noticeable! Thank you for your support!

Misha Hill: We were there for Frequency Fridays and I'd give the party 4 stars too. Great venue, the downstairs is spacious with good seating for bottle service and plenty of space to dance and mingle. Cheeky decor set the vibe and the bottle girls and bartenders were great. We had an issue with management or the promoter around bottle prices, but they were somewhere accommodating. Just be wary if you book for Frequency Friday on Eventbrite, the bottle prices listed may not be what's available.

Carla Ferguson (Your Bon Viveur): I attended a birthday brunch here. The atmosphere was great, especially with the beautiful decor. Our server was excellent and so attentive to all of our needs, requests, etc. The brunch was excellent, shout out to the chefs. All of the food that we had was great! So, it was all good until....we tried to get drinks from the bar. Service was slow, there were 2 bartenders but 1 was mostly working. The one bartender was also rude as she seemed very overwhelmed. Then it went downhill with the promoters and management....We spent over $1,300 on brunch and hundreds at the bar for additional drinks. We tried to pay for a table for the Birthday Girl, and received incorrect information about what was required. Instead of kindly explaining to us what was required they rudely came over and asked us to get up. Now, I'll be the first to say that if I want to spend any amount of money, I will, and that wasn't a problem, but what I don't condone is rude customer service! It was all good up until that point. Please work on that management because if a promoter is in your establishment they represent you and your establishment. Also if you don't respect your customers through their entire experience then you will eventually continue to loose faithful, paying customers. Sometimes we all need an attitude check. Giving respect, earns respect! Great Food + Atmosphere + Good CUSTOMER SERVICE = Repeat Customers

Ryan Morton: I would not recommend this place. My boyfriend tried to surprise me for my birthday to come here. We were running a little late because we were looking for parking. They did not inform us that we had to be on time or you will lose your reservation. So we lost our reservation after 15 minutes. Once my boyfriend spoke with the people at the door, they told us to go online to request a refund and reschedule. We try to request the refund online, and then received an ignorant response. “Unfortunately you were late, no refunds.” The people that work there in front of the door advised us to go online and request a refund and reschedule. I would never come here, I would never tell my friends to come here, I would never recommend this place. Definitely went somewhere else for my birthday and had a ball. I hope y’all step your customer service game up one day, because if not, y’all would definitely lose business.
Response: Dear Ryan! We are very sorry, that you had a bad experience with your party. We do put our reservation policy and 15 minutes grace period in confirmation email and remainder email. Unfortunately, to be able to accommodate all the following parties on time - we have to stick to our rules and show the same appreciation to all of our guests. We always ask our guests to tell us if they are running late. There are options to do that right from your email with confirmation. All our team sends you Happy Birthday wishes and we are happy you enjoyed your party anyways!

Vocalbeast AJ: It saddens me to have to give this place such a low rating. I’ve passed this place many times on Sunday and wondered how their brunch was. I took a friend for her birthday, and I was very disappointed. Firstly, their website stressed the important of being on-time, however, we waited in line and didn’t get in until after our reservation time. The line was cramped and people also were being allowed to just walk in the front of the line because their party had already been waiting...causing a further delay for us to give our contact into and do the temperature checks. The server was anything but pleasant. She kept forgetting our order, and got an attitude when I ask for a manager considering after well over an hour my food had not arrived. Both dishes were done incorrect, but more importantly my own which came finally well after my friend finished eating hers. I ordered a MW steak which came out WellDone, and fried hard eggs that came out over easy. When the first plate came out...like I said well before the second plate but still about an hour after the order was placed, the server made a guess that it belong to my friend. We order the same thing with a few differences. Here had an item on it that I specifically told the waitress I was allergic to. The manager on duty was polite and attempted his best to resolve it, but unfortunately his efforts feel extremely short. I was totally dissatisfied and turned off by the experience. The food I received came as they were transitioning into their next phase of dinning, clearly exceeding two hours. We stayed to finish our drinks we purchased, paid for the bill, and continued on to another spot nearby so I could eat. I thought about giving them another shot because the decor is amazing and the music was right on time...however this is not a solo or duo type place. You need a group of 4 or more to get seating that won’t be by the bathroom or in an area where staff including management can stand. I dealt with three guys above 6 feet who worked there including security standing right by me so they could watch the game. Clearly violating the six feet rule. I asked if they could move and they ignored me until I asked a staff member to ask them. This caused people to but my table trying to pass them and my person. I love football, but also like being in good health. I can’t recommend this place for food, but it def attracts a nice young adult crowd where the majority are pretty well put together if you’re looking to network.

Chaplin's Restaurant: what do users think?


Ephraim Fields: The ramen, appetizers and drinks here are excellent and filling! I ordered the Tori Karaage, Shrimp Gyoza and Stamina Spicy. The Stamina Spicy had the perfect amount of heat for my Louisiana taste buds. The restaurant provides an 80s vibe with the music and the atmosphere was bustling during our visit. The service was quick and accommodating as well. We will definitely be back again.

A S: Wow, great ramen, drinks, and service! Our server and bartender were both very kind. The ramen was delicious! I will definitely come back to try their cold ramen during the appropriate season.

LoMo: During our sibling trip we decided to visit Chaplin’s. Open late for a weekday-while most everything around us closed at 10pm. Great indoor and outdoor patio dining environment. Nice bar seating too. Stephanie was awwwwesome! She picked the pork gyoza, fried wontons, and Chaplin buns for us to start. I had a ginger beer which was nice and spicy. Siblings had the Chaplin ramen and Shoyu ramen with stamina egg and bok choy. Stephanie surprised me with the Chaplin A.S.S. (Asian Spicy Sour) with butter corn! Fantastic balance of bold flavors! Ramen was perfect texture in every bowl! Will be back!

Corey Goode: This was not good. We had two different ramens both of which tasted like instant ramen with double the packets. The drinks were... Don't get the cocktails. The gf made me mention the decor is pretty..

Marc L: I am generally not impressed by anything around Shaw, but this incredible Michelin-worthy restaurant is a diamond in the rough (literally the rough because some of Shaw leaves a lot to be desired). We were here last night and were immediately impressed by how clean and well-lighted the restaurant is. Fourteen of us had reservations at 7, and those who arrived early sat at the bar to take advantage of their happy hour (up to 50 percent off on certain drinks). The bartender was incredibly helpful and friendly. We were then ushered upstairs at the start of our dinner. From the very beginning, our server - Mikela - was extremely helpful, going so far as to rearrange the tables to ensure none of us got trapped in a seat during the course of our dinner. For such an upscale place that serves incredible food (I got the miso ramen with extra pork belly), Chaplin’s is surprisingly affordable. With appetizers (which I highly recommend), food and copious amounts of drinks, our bill came out to about $750. I highly recommend this place (although maybe not because I don’t wan others to know it’s a hidden gem in Shaw. I want to come back!) whether it’s for a business dinner, a get-together with friends, or date night. To the manager: Mikela is a rock star and should be the lead trainer for others on how to provide top-of-the-line service. Please ensure she gets a well-deserved recognition and thank you.

James Corney: Excellent. Nice atmosphere, and wait staff was attentive. I ordered the shoyu ramen with a fried pork gyoza add-on (on the side). It was terrific. I am accustomed to my shoyu ramen having a predominantly soy sauce flavor. I usually like that. This one was much more subtle, making a strong emphasis on the pork and pork broth. I split pork and pork up here not because of the chashu but because of the ground pork that had a surprising depth of flavor, reminding me of a broken up Chinese lions head meatball. The noodles were cooked well and all together really hit the spot. The pork gyoza add-on provided three plump fried gyoza which were delicious on their own. Fried crispy with a thin skin and stuffed with a lovely pork filling that had no unnecessary large or stringy bits. Perfect for biting in half to enjoy the texture of the fry. I got them served on the side rather than letting them soak in the broth, which I recommend.

Elias Chelala: Amazing food and delicious drinks. Some of the best fried Gyoza I've had so far in DC. Make sure you try the Tokyo Tea and Devil's Pass frozen drinks. I also ordered the Edmame, Pork Shumai and fried wontons. The service was good and I'll definitely be coming back to this restaurant again to try the Ramen.

India Lindsay: A casual eatery for flavorful ramen. The outdoor seating options are great and they also offer cold ramen for the summer months. Offer gluten free options for those gluten sensitive, no options for those highly allergic / celiac due to use of soy sauce. We ordered tan tan men, the Chaplin, and the Kakuni pork belly as an appetizer. Everything was delicious Kakuni is a slightly sweet marinated pork belly dish. It comes with 4 sections of meat. Tan tan men is a flavorful bright ramen with crumbled pork. It has the signature spicy and oily flavor in many East Asian dishes and contains depth of flavor. The Chaplin is a creamy black sesame broth. It’s rich but still on the lighter side.

Justin Tholl: Amazing pork ribs and the Chaplin ramen was fabulous! They also offer a side of spicy sauce to mix in, so good! Service was on point, thank you for a wonderful meal!

Felicia: Random spot I went to and the pay off was great. Had the Tan Tan Men (vegan) and vegetable gyoza (steamed). No drinks but I’ll definitely be back.

Kelvin Ofula: A typical Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of DC. Strategically positioned. Loved the interior deco and their food. The staff were once again as amazing as always and very helpful. The lady at the souvenir shop was very very helpful and friendly. I loved every single bit here. The ambiance was great and so was the music. Hard Rock is just pure positive vibrations and I always try to visit one when in an area with one. I would totally recommend.
Response: Thank you for the thoughtful 5 star review Kelvin! We hope to welcome you back to the Washington DC cafe soon!

Matt Daniel: A classic Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of DC. A great layout within what appears to be a old fashioned restaurant or bar. The rock n roll decor is seamlessly integrated into the Art Deco along the walls. The staff were very hospitable and I recommend making a reservation as you can ask for better seating up stairs or in the back. There was one tv above the bar featuring music videos of various famous rock n roll bands. The pricing was reasonable for the area and the options for food were good with large portions. I’d recommend to stop by if you haven’t been, hope this helps!
Response: Thank you for the thoughtful 5 star review Matan! We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!

Yogis Dogie: Nice place to visit in DC. Extremely busy but very nicely decorated. Unfortunately the food is very mediocre. Looks great, tastes bland and almost always served cool or cold. The hamburgers have an odd seasoning in them that can be off putting. Fries are good but the portion is pretty small (in relation to the price). The gift shop is well stocked. The rewards program changes its guidelines too frequently and dumps points out too often to be useful. Basically, it’s a nice place to visit, but one visit is plenty.
Response: Dear Yogis, Thank you for visiting HRC DC and taking the time to provide your feedback! Please accept my apologizes for not delivering a 5 star experience, if there is ever anything we can do to assist on your next visit please do not hesitate to reach out to the management team at Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Adam: It's just your typical Hard Rock Cafe. Good food and drinks. No wait. Our waiter, Terry, was very attentive and polite. Great place to grab a bite when touring DC. *please note* you get more onion rings than pictured!
Response: Hello Adam, Thank you so much for your recent review of the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington D.C. We appreciate the 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

Bailey Alexander: This was my third time eating at this particular Hard Rock Cafe! This location really stands out. It’s in the heart of the city so it’s really nice to tour monuments an things and then ride electric scooters to here and park them. Then you can relax and unwind, ride scooters back around to tour more things in DC. The food is always very flavorful and good. The drinks are always perfect. This location has an excellent modern style with lots of arts and things on the walls. I highly recommend checking this place out while in DC.
Response: Hello Bailey Alexander, Thank you so much for the 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

David Arrimadas: Very good Hard Rock restaurant. I have been in lot of them all over the world and this is a very good one. I love the open kitchen concept and the kindness of all the staff. The brownie is delicious and soooo big. Difficult to finish it even when sharing!
Response: Hello David Arrimadas, Thank you so much for your 5 star review! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

WorldofDaph: I try to go to hard rock in every city I visit and usually it is a pleasant experience but not today. I came to this location and sat down in the bar area waiting 10-15 minutes for someone to take a drink order. Considering how tired and hungry I was I had no energy to even leave. One of he waitresses at the bar looked at me and my fiancé multiple times and never came over. She was behind the bar scratching her back under her shirt and didn’t even wash her hands. When she finally came to our table she pulled out her cellphone to text someone. Having been a service manager in restaurant for years I was completely dumbfounded at the disrespect. I’m a pretty mild mannered fair person but this Waitress was awful. I will say the kitchen staff was doing a great job. They were pushing food out but the servers just weren’t running food which caused it to just sit in the window. The receipt said the waitress name was Sara. All I know is Sara needs to be demoted to hostess or let go. Upon leaving I brought these things to the managers attention but I could tell she didn’t really care. She offered to give me her card. That’s won’t do much at all. I watch the manager stand on the expo line and watch plates die in the window. Saturdays can be quite tough and she was probably tired and over it herself. All in all I will never return to this location.
Response: Hello WorldofDaph, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent visit. What you experienced is absolutely not the type of authentic Hard Rock atmosphere we strive to provide. I apologize that your concerns were not addressed when you brought them to the attention of the manager on duty, we will make sure they are addressed immediately. If you have the time to discuss your experience in further detail you can reach our management team at: Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com I do appreciate your recognition of the Kitchen Staff and will happily share your praise with them! I hope that we can connect further on email. Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

gary becker: We had a party of 16 people. We went to Hard Rock Cafe because my previous experience at other HRCs was exceptional. Great customer service, but not at this location. We only had one server that rarely attended to our table. Drinks were empty most of the time. I asked 4 times for artificial sweetener and still never got it. I asked 3 times for a ice tea refill and it was refilled only once. Others in our party had the same experience. Tables around us were messy with food on the floor around us from previous customers and it was never tended to. The experience was so disappointing that I spoke with the manager on shift. All she said was that every restaurant was under staffed and service everywhere was impacted. Rather than take responsibility, she only verbalized excuses. Without even attempting to make the situation right. My hamburger was satisfactory, but the French frys were ice cold. I informed our waiter and all he did was say that due to our party size, some food had to sit awhile while waiting for other orders to be filled. Absolutely ZERO customer service. I even apologized to each member of our party for the poor experience they received because it was that bad. Saddens me that a HRC would allow it's service to get to this degraded level. Update: Connected with Sara Lester, Hard Rock Café Sales and Marketing Manager. Sara reassured me that all the issues I brought to her attention would be immediately addressed. As with any business or organization. There will be times a product fails or a process / service does not meet expectations. It happens to everyone. But what they do next is what really matters. Sara detailed the steps they would take to correct the situation to ensure future customers receive “Best In Class” service and food. Sara has regained our confidence in Hard Rock Café and we look forward to our next visit.
Response: Dear Gary, I really appreciate you taking the time to share about your experience. This is not the level of service Hard Rock aims to deliver. The details you shared will be very helpful in coaching our team to improve so that this does not happen again. Are you still in the DC area? I would like to invite you back as my VIP guests so that I can ensure you receive the service you deserve. Please feel free to reach out to me at Washington_DC_Social@hardrock.com Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Arthur Hurlburt: We would give it five stars but we ate so much that it upset our stomachs. I suppose I can't blame them for that! The burgers are good, the chicken fingers are better. They are real chicken, battered beautifully. Very, very good. Their t-shirts are pricey, but that's too be expected. The brownie sundae was amazing! Big enough to share.
Response: Hello Arthur Hurlburt! Thank you for your feedback! Best regards, Erik Bolme General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Washington D.C.

Rachel Cook: We had a very large group with reservations. They were not prepared. Some of the staff was great, but others were not. The food, for those who actually got food, was mediocre. If this continues, the DC Hard Rock will suffer the same fate as others around the country...permanently closed. It is disappointing 😞
Response: Dear Rachel, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I hope that you can accept my apologizes for not being prepared and delivering a 5 star experience. I am glad that there were a few staff members that were great. We are grateful for your patronage and will continue to strive for improvement so we can better tend to your group on the next visit. Thank you, Sara Lester - Sales & Marketing Manager

Logan Tavern: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pinstripes: what do users think?


Raja Haider Hussain: Went for dinner with family this evening. This location is perfect for a weekend drinks,lunch and dinner. One of the best spots near Georgetown waterfront. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and both options offer a lively ambiance. The staff is very attentive , efficient and courteous. They have carefully selected menu and the food we ordered was served fresh and the quality was above par. Their Calamari, Wings, Pizza, Ceasar Salad, Lasagna and chicken sandwiches were really good. However the grilled chicken with Caesar salad was very dry and not that great. We were also offered dessert on the house ( Brownie and ice cream) which was delicious. Over all a nice hangout spot and highly recommended for a casual friendly outing with good food and surroundings.

Benjamin W.: Went here for bowling. Reserving a lane means a server will periodically come by and take food + drink orders. The only thing is their happy hour menu isn't valid while bowling. I'm already spending money to bowl, why can't I get some cheap beer and snacks. Food and drinks were good and staff was responsive. Bowling was fun, so I'd go back. Maybe offer bowling only food and drink specials and clearly state where the happy hour menu is valid up front. Overall solid experience.
Response: Dear Benjamin, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and feedback! We are so glad you had a wonderful time bowling at Pinstripes. Hope to see you again soon!

Khoi Nguyen: Great place for happy hour. I've dined here multiple times. Stopped by on a busy Sunday. My family and I ate some truffle fries, flat breads and wings. The wings are a must order especially the spicy calabrese. Prices are reasonable and on Sunday HH is between 6-10 pm. The drinks weren't bad either. You can get mixed cocktails for around $6. Fun place to celebrate something or enjoy some happy hour food and drinks. Service is always at a high-level

Mark Orebiyi: My project team had out quarterly engagement activity at Pinstripes recently. We had a slot from 4-6pm. They give you a 15min grace period which is nice. We started bowling and 30 minutes in our lane started acting up. The lane mechanic came to fix it while me and my team ordered food. The food is fantastic. From the wings to the pizza we really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, our lane was never fixed. After an hour from when it stopped working we were offer to go play Bocce Ball for 30min prior to use leaving. The Manager (Leo) was very accommodating and cover our bowling cost as we well as you bocce ball game. Although they had issues the food was amazing and they took good care of us.

Fredrik Otter: Generous portions and innovative kitchen. Happy Hour prices are fantastic and the location fabulous. Slow service, but when the weather is nice that is only a plus!

Stephen Balza: Just enjoyed a nice meal outside along the C&O Canal on a stunning July evening. Our server was friendly, efficient, and attentive. The food portions (Baked Lasagna and Chicken Sandwich) were on the small side, but tasty and moderately priced. It’s a unique place in a great location (Wisconsin Ave a couple blocks from M St and a couple blocks from the Waterfront). We didn’t try the bocce or bowling but it was full of folks who were enjoying it.
Response: Dear Stephen, Thank you for the five star review. We are thrilled you enjoyed our delicious selection of dishes on our patio. We are glad you enjoyed our Lasagna and Chicken Sandwich. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you again soon for bowling and bocce.

Judy Gordon: I couldn’t be more impressed with this experience in DC. From the minute I walked in with my 2 young grandsons until we left I found the staff to be professional and caring. They certainly care about cleanliness and sanitizing which I appreciated. The food was just delicious- we shared a pizza and scrumptious warm brownie with ice cream for dessert. Do not miss it. The boys loved having the bumper rails automatically pop up when they took their turn. They also loved being able to create various scoring games using animated characters. It was so kid friendly. I felt that the each employee went out of his/ her way to make our experience a terrific one. There’s no other reason to go to any other bowling facility to have a good time.

Bri M: It was my first time bowling at Pinstripes. We had a great time. I will definitely return. The food was awesome and the staff very friendly and attentive. Found that the music was a little loud at times but overall it was a great experience. Parking is underneath and accessible off of Wisconsin Avenue which is very convenient if you are not one to look for street parking. Highly recommend if getting together with family and friends interested in experiencing an upscale bowling activity.
Response: Dear Bri, Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed the food, service and bowling! We hope to see you again soon!

Lucie Lautenschlager: Waiter were very kind they know how to do their job. I loved the food. All of it the desert especially I loves going bowling their and from being somewhere not luxurious then this is taking it 2 steps up and I'm in love with this place. I'd recommend to stop and dine in for good food. Have to come again when I visit again. The price and flavor of the food is perfect.
Response: Dear Lucie, Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with fun bowling, delicious food and service! We are so glad you enjoyed the desert as well! We cannot wait to see you at Pinstripes again soon!

Thomas Weber (halifax9): Very good bloody Marys. Not overly done. Just right. The lobster and egg bruschetta is delicious. Although I would say the bread is unnecessary. Service started slow but got better. A very nice place. Oh by the way, they have bowling and bocce too!
Response: Dear Thomas, Thank you for the feedback. We are glad you had an amazing experience and enjoyed our Lobster & Egg Bruschetta and Bloody Mary. We hope to see you again soon for bowling and bocce.

Ollie's Trolley: what do users think?


Patrick Young: Outstanding food that is affordable! I loved their burger and the fries are so delicious!Seriously, if you come here you have to get the fries! I couldn’t believe how inexpensive the food was while being this close to the capital! The inside reminds you of a burger joint from better times. Do keep in mind that they only accept cash, but that also keeps in theme with the hand written signs and the nostalgic feel of the place

Mary Brown: Yep, cash only. Don't assume they have everything listed on the menu. (No crab cakes, rootbeer or bacon tonight.) Service started out not terribly friendly, but warmed up a bit by the end. We waited about 15 minutes for an order of 2 fish sandwiches, a veggie burger, 3 pops, and an order of fries. The food was very good, and a good amount, too, one fish fillet was split onto 2 buns.

Shana Cheney: Ollie himself takes your order! Not the most personable guy but he's old and probably tired of everyone's $#!@. The food is absolutely delicious! We came yesterday for the 1st time and it was so good, we came back today. The fries are probably the best I've ever had. Try it...you won't be disappointed!!

Samantha García: The Ollieburger and french fries were great! Old fashioned style, and all the place looks very retro. I'm giving it 4 stars because they only take cash, however, they have ATMs inside the place in case you didn't bring any cash with you. Highly recommended! They also have a veggie burgers.

Zoey :D: Amazing food! I had a turkey burger with just provolone and house sauce, my father had the steak and cheese sub and we shared fries. We have no complaints on food! It was delicious, they give good portions and the fries have an amazing spice. The house sauce was super good, a bit tangy, can’t get enough of it. If I’m ever back in town I will definitely suggest this! And I suggest it to you to! Only complaint is the place needs some fixing up here and there. Besides that it is a clean, cute, quiet, tasty place!

Corey Scott: There are a hundred hand written signs here, but none of them mention cash only. They also have an ATM if you're into paying an extra 5 bucks to pull cash for your meal. The food was okay. The steak and cheese sandwich was good, the fries were very good, but the burger and hot dog were not very good. Do not believe the sign that says it's their specialty, it ain't. The antiques They have out are worth a look.

Dominic LA St name: The location does not serve crab cakes any longer. The fries are shoestring fries with a five guy style seasoning. Pretty good meal but for 20$ not sure if I'll be back until the crab cakes are available.

Carmen Cather: It was very busy at the time I went but they handled it well. The cheesesteak was delicious, burger was very medium rare,jeep in mind the sign states that is how they cook it unless specifically different. Yes this is cash only, but there is and ATM. The prices are so reasonable especially for location!! Great amount of food too. 2 people could split the cheese steak and fries. I loved it.

George Soliman: Best steak and cheese in the history of United States 🇺🇸Cash onlyOld style authentic

Aaron northcutt: Food was very good. It was greasy and had large portions - just what I wanted and knew I was getting. They only accept cash, which wasn't an issue for me at all. It's a pretty cheap place too, so don't expect something super fancy. The atmosphere is unique and nostalgic. Definitely not a cookie cutter magazine restaurant type place.

byron subero: This restaurant was great! The maitre d was very nice and informative about the restaurant and the art work. Food was delicious and the drinks was amazing. The peach moonshine was fantastic. Definitely need to go back to try their brunch.
Response: Hello Byron, Sorry for the delay but thank you so much for your review. Be Well, Alan Proprietor

Amanda Long: We stopped for dinner because it was close by, but it was a wonderful experience. We had 2 appetizers and 3 entrées, and loved all of it. The steak was perfectly cooked, and we couldn't have asked for better service (thanks Karen!). We'll be sure to come back next time we're in the area!
Response: Hi Amanda, Thanks for the great review. We are lucky to have customers like you. Appreciatively, Alan Owner

Klara Cheung: Downtown DC and there's there's street parking around. Cute little place, masks are required indoors but there's a cute outdoor sitting area. For those who get a lot of mosquito bites, make sure you spray up before you go! Good service and great food. We ordered the House Cut Fries which came with 4 different sauces which were all very good. Fries were also very good and well seasoned. I ordered the Cornmeal Fried Softshell Crab Bahn MI Sandwich. The Crab was a great size and really crispy and the Bahn mi was very flavorful. I ordered the Gettysburg Cooler for a drink which was very refreshing. Definitely recommend it here!

Faith Mitchell: Enjoyed brunch at Lincoln yesterday morning. Loved the vibes as the restaurant is cute and they play good music. It is very clean and I felt comfortable enjoying a meal here. The menu had a lot of options and $50 for bottomless mimosas and food is a great deal. Definitely had some unique flavor combinations that we surprisingly enjoyed. The service was a bit slow as we waited for awhile to be served and didn’t get checked on as much as we would have liked. However, everyone was nice including the manager and, when we did get a server, we were well taken care of. Would go back.
Response: Hi Faith, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your business and hope to see you soon. Kindly, Alan Owner Lincoln Restaurant

Gina S: Cool place to visit due to it being linked to the historical figuer Honest Abe. Small space, a bit of a wait, but the menu offers good southern/homestyle food. I wasn't wowed, but my appetite was satisfied.

Mikayla Ramirez: Nice atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Great food. Decent price.

Nonie Fields: My friend and I stopped by the Lincoln yesterday for lunch. The food was amazing and the ambiance and decor was aesthetically pleasing. Our server Brandy took great care of us she made our experience a million times better. I definitely will be back to try the dinner & brunch menu!
Response: Hi Nonie, Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate you dining with us. Kindly, Alan Owner

Bobby A: Got there for "Happy Hour". They have a wonderful appetizer selection as well as wines, beers, and cocktails. We enjoyed glasses of wine, beer. And a couple of scotches! The deli platter was good as was the fish taco. The romaine ceaser was really tops! Excellent waiter though they were busy. We sat outside but the inside is very nice. Also, clean restroom. Will come back.
Response: Hello Bobby, Thank you for the kind review and your business. Appreciatively, Alan Owner

Madison Garcia: I went to Lincoln last Sunday for their Pride brunch with a group of girlfriends and had such a fun time! The bartender, Nico, served us and gave us the best experience. The drinks were great and he was so fun and friendly. The food was delicious and the service made our time there even better. I will definitely be going back soon!
Response: Hello Madison, Thank you for the kind review. I will pass it along to Nico. I appreciate your support. Appreciatively, Alan

Patrick Baber: Delicious brunch and incredible staff. Highly recommend. Cool vibe and decor as well.

Stray Cat Bar & Grill: what do users think?


Sam Dey: Very good & attentive staff. Menu has a good variety. The ambiance is nice and the walls are covered with colorful "Cat-art". All items on the menu are even named keeping felines in mind. Great place to meet up for a low key appetizing meal. There's a full bar also. A fraction of the $$ the restaurant makes, goes towards rescuing & caring for stray cats. The restaurant group also organizes several adoption events throughout the year. Tag->Also check out a sister restaurant: "Stray Dog Cafe"👍👍

Katherine Elrod: I love this place! So, for the uninitiated: The Lost Dog has a pizza oven, and The Stray Cat has a griddle. So if you want a pizza or an open-faced deli sandwich, go to the Dog. If you want a burger, go to the Cat. They’re equally good, down-home greasy spoons that fit the neighborhood perfectly and have great atmosphere. The Cat has gluten free buns available. I WISH they were open for breakfast - walking my kids over for pancakes would be awesome!! - but still, it’s a great casual place for lunch and dinner.

Robin Lukacs: I stopped by for lunch, first time. The cat decor was artsy and fun. I was impressed that they donate to cat rescues. Laid back atmosphere, with a bar, but I was comfortable taking my granddaughter to lunch. I had a delicious apple/beet/pecan salad, topped with a piece of fried feta cheese. So good! Friendly server too!

Scotty ST: I love getting the tacos or the chicken enchiladas here. The staff must have to pass a personality test to get a job here because they are all friendly and easy to talk to. If the Lost Dog is too crowded come by their sister restaurant, the Stay Cat Cafe. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is tasty. They have a wide selection of draft beer. There is not normally a wait here and it's easy to sit groups of four with their booths.

Geoff Baker: Part of Lost Dog; very good food, service, and bar. Tasty food and easy on the pocketbook. Place to go...if want pizza or sandwiches with large on tap selection of beer, go next door to lost dog. Fun place to eat and talk.

Carla Cox: Overall, we were really disappointed with our experience at the Stray Cat Cafe this evening. Our waiter was friendly and the food was good enough, but the manager’s rude and aggressive response to my query if the restaurant had an allergen menu totally embarrassed me and really spoiled the experience. It’s surprising because Stray Cat’s sister restaurant Lost Dog Cafe (which is located a few doors down) has a detailed allergen list with a ton of options for people with different food allergies. Plus Lost Dog’s staff has always been very nice and accommodating. If you want a good meal save yourself the trouble and skip the Stray Cat Cafe.

Chris Walters: This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is primarily sandwiches, always well made and tasty. It's a neighborhood place, it supports a good cause, and it never disappoints. If you're looking for fancy, this ain't it. If you want good, affordable food in a non-chain restaurant, this is a great place.

Craig Perkinson: Nice atmosphere and good food.

Penny Royal: The Stray reopened today after redecoration, with a new menu, including greater variety and plenty of their usual cat-themed quirkiness. The pretzel bites were tasty, the burgers were cooked perfectly, and the wait staff was super friendly. I recommend the Tabby-tini off the drink menu. Will be coming back to this Westover haunt.

theoldcoat L. G. Fitzgerald: Although their previously impressive giant sandwich list has shrunk dynamically, the food is still the same excellent quality. So is the service. One of my favorites in Arlington.

Archipelago: what do users think?


Philippa Hughes: A favorite neighborhood spot to have a great (and well garnished!) tiki drink on the patio. I love the Dan Dan noodles.

Hannah Dantrassy: Archipelago is the only bar in the DMV that makes true tiki cocktails we've found so far. We ran the gamut and ordered a ton of drinks and food. Pearl Diver, Banana Daiquiri, and Zombie were ALL drinks I would get again in a heartbeat. Truck Bed Funeral is good if you like mezcal, but was too smoky for my personal taste. (That's on me for ordering - they made it very well.) I love that the drinks were also served with the classic garnishes and in each of their own unique mugs. A lot of their merch is unavailable online, but you can pick some up in-person. For the food? Szechuan spice was a lot more toned down in the Dan Dan noodles, wonton, + chicken, but those were still tasty. Nachos were really tall + very satisfying. I would skip out on the brussel sprouts since they were really over seasoned/salted. Hotdog bun was alright. Our fav plate was the eggplant. 😁🍆 TL;DR: if you're into tiki cocktails + have been to well-known places around the US, then this place will definitely scratch that itch for you. It will probably be a must-go place for drinks when we are in DC.

Bryce Holliday: Really fun drinks! It had a nice ambiance both inside and outside. Food and drinks were good, service could have been better. We asked for recommends and didn’t really get any. Our food was coming out at all different times, some of it didn’t come for over an hour so we had to ask about it. We were told they forgot to put it in, but did then. Then they brought it out and forgot some of it a second time. Oh actually there was a really annoying part. My review was 4 stars until I remembered this. The hostess was pretty rude. When we told her there would only be 5 of us instead of 6, she rolled her eyes at us. 2 hours later as we’re waiting for our second round of forgotten food, our 6th friend stopped by since we were there for so long. There were two open tables so we borrowed a chair. The hostess instantly comes out and asks if we want to change our reservation for 6 and move tables. We said we can do that but didn’t want to move tables, we weren’t staying much longer. She said our friend had to sit inside at the bar by himself because she has reservations that she needed those chairs for reservations. So we quickly finished our food and drinks, but then one of our friends left, so the friend at the bar joined us and we got one more round of drinks. Over the next half hour, there were no new reservations at that table; they didn’t even clean it off because they knew there were no more people coming. So she pretty much just wanted to come over and make a big deal out of us changing our reservations and making us jump through hoops for no reason. I would actually wouldn’t go back due to the overall service.

R. Austin: Cute tiki bar with a low-key vibe. Nachos are a huge serving. Drinks were great, the Mai Tai was quite strong but delicious.

Jordan Zaner: Awesome ambiance. If you are looking for the most authentic tiki experience in the DC area this is the place to go. They have all the favorites, zombies, mai tais, painkillers, daquaris. Stephen was a great host for the evening, very cordial, took us down the tiki rabbit hole. Cannot stress enough how relaxing but engaging the evening was. Can't wait to go back! 5/5 will be back soon...

Maybell Elizabeth Varillas Maza: a very pleasant atmosphere good attention I really like their drinks and everything

L R: Love this place!!! Awesome drink!!! Food is good.. hot spicy chicken buns... Are hot! The only problem with this place is 22% added on as a service fee on your bill.

Sophocles Grafas: Love this place so much. I happily order more then I initially thought i wanted because there was so much to choose and share. Very tasty drinks and food and the best staff!

David Voegtle: I don’t ever leave reviews, but this place is the exception. Of all the bars I’ve been to in DC, this is my favorite (and that’s after just one visit). From the second I arrived to the moment I left, the amazingly chill and friendly staff made us feel right at home. The drinks are superb, with names as colorful and unique as the establishment that serves them - the ones we had were as delicious as one would expect from a bar owned and operated by seasoned bartenders. I’ll be telling my friends about this place, and I will most certainly be back very soon.

Rachele Clegg: I have been wanting to pop into this spot for what feels like forever and it did not disappoint. The tiki cocktails are phenomenal and the food was out of this world. We had a lot, but I loved the cold sesame noodles, the Dan Dan, and the ham and cheese slider buns. Can’t wait to pop in for more mezcal cocktails + noodles!
