Everything about the dining experience was great. We were celebrating a birthday and the food was great plus the wait staff could not have been more attentive. I would highly recommend the restaurant, especially for a special occasion

Several people have recommended Filomena to me for years but I was never able to get a reservation. Finally got in and very much enjoyed the food, the service and I appreciated the sanitary measures they have put in place due to COVID.

If you like pasta, seafood and flavor you must try the “misto” dish. It’s out of this universe.

Great experience as always. My wife have gone for every anniversary, but this time it was our 1st wedding anniversary. They made us feel very welcome and the food was excellent. By far, my favorite restaurant in the DMV/DC area.

I really love Filomena. The ambiance, food and service is always spectacular but when I went to dine this past weekend, it was extremely busy and our table was quite close to other tables so I did not feel comfortable while I was dining there.

Very disappointed after having read so many positive reviews. I am French with Italian blood. My granny used to cook us very Italian-oriented dishes, pasta, where simplicity and tastefulness were beautifully blending into our palates.
When I read all the reviews and marketing materials from Filomena, I thought I could experience this warm feeling again.
How disappointed I was when I saw my plate coming: a huge amount of food, with no delicacy, where pasta were soaked in ounces and ounces of tomato sauce. I then thought the taste must be better than the look, but I was sadly wrong... The tomato sauce was not so tasty (I was looking for the taste of the meat who would have melted slowly into the tomato sauce), the pasta were okay, the meat around was good but still not authentic to a genuine traditional Italian dish.
Then I realized, “of course, I am in America”.

PS: I indicated in my booking that it was my birthday celebration. The staff seemed to have completely missed that element 😂

From appetizer to desert, hands down one of the best meals ever! Lobster pasta is amazing and packed with lobster. The lasagna elevated this dish to a new level of delicious. And the cannoli!

Dinner was great, huge portion sizes. A really cute cozy spot. The only “issue” we had was our waiter rarely checked on us and took forever to bring us anything. Would come back for the dessert above anything else

Food and service is always top notch and they have stepped up and are providing safety measures that rival their food/service.

Thoughtful but not overbearing protocols are in place. Simply fantastic all around.

Just our 2nd time dining in since places have begun to slowly open, so we were a little worried how this big and bustling restaurant would handle things. Well, we were impressed! Moveable partitions, spaced seating, and hand sanitizer stations everywhere (as well as mask reminder signs). We visited for Restaurant Week lunch and while a few of our favorite appetizers and entrees were not on the menu this year, it was still GREAT! Leftovers enough for another dinner! And totally wonderful service, from beginning to end. We are SO pleased we went!
