This was my fifth time earing at Espita, and my boyfriend were easily able to remember each of the four times before: where we sat, who we were with, and what we ate. We love this place. ALWAYS order the ceviche. Every time we've been, they've had a different take on mole on the menu, and it's always delish. And the tacos are always great. I'm writing this review after drinking two flights of mezcal (Mezcal Mondays are the new Taco Tuesdays), but I promise the sentiments are true. More

Vegan | Downtown, District of Columbia

I was visiting DC and found this restaurant on Opentable because I needed a vegan friendly restaurant for my friend and boy was this a find. They are only open for dinner reservations on Friday and Saturday night and I was lucky to snag a 5:30 pm slot on a Friday night. The prix fixe menu was probably one of the most well presented and tasteful experiences my fiend and I have had. We took the wine pairing and our meal courses were also accompanied by an excellent selection of fine wines. Loved everything about the meal, the friendly service and the room setting. A highlight of my trip to DC and this will be on my list every time I have the opportunity. More

French | Georgetown, District of Columbia

I came here to eat the other night with a party of 5 people for my birthday. The restaurant is very quaint and gives a really intimate feel. A hidden gem for sure! The restaurant was packed at 7pm on a Saturday night so I highly recommend reservations. We ordered escargot and foi gras for appetizers. Very falvorful. For dinner, I enjoyed my salmon meal. My boyfriend ordered the duck confit. We placed our order, but later on the waiter came to apologize that they ran out of his duck confit. The service recovery here was absolutely amazing!!!! My boyfriend ordered another meal off the menu (the duck breast) and they gave him his meal on the house. When the table all got our meals, they gave him a salad so that he would at least be eating same time too. After all our meals were done, the waiter came over and also poured the table another bottle of wine. I have to say I would definitely be back because this restaurant truly cares about their customers... and every dish my table ordered was excellent. More
