I would definitely come back again!!! Ms. Tiffany was very friendly and helpful with anything we need! Great place.
Such great service & good covid precautions.
Food was really salty, had to return it.
A fine hotel restaurant with an interesting menu of well prepared elments. A warm hipster atmosphere - just like the rest of the hotel.
The team does a very good job of handling pandemic restrictions. A standout was the calamari with lemon.
Great little indoor/outdoor open dining for brunch. Very good! Highly recommend.
Delicious brunch and great service! Ate outside on the patio and it was nice for covid-times because they have garage-style doors so tables inside felt airy as well.
Extremely limited menu, food was tasty and cooked with care, wish the menu was larger. Service was prompt and engaging.
The vibe was perfect and the staff was super nice. Food was also excellent.
Good service, Good food, Despite bugs bite when eating outside. No sun umbrella neither.
My group & I dined at American Son 3 times during our stay at Eaton for the March on Washington.
We had dinner twice, brunch once & the pre-made box lunches prepared for the March.
We must have ordered all the dishes on the menu! Although some dishes weren’t to my personal preference, all were consistently delicious with excellent presentation, fresh ingredients and flavor profiles well balanced.
The staff was always friendly, attentive & accommodating.
As far as CoVid precautions, the restaurant & staff are taking & upholding all the safety protocols to the highest degree.
The ambiance & design of the restaurant is superbly curated and beautiful without compromising comfort.
If you’re traveling to DC or a local, I can’t recommend this place more. You won’t be disappointed!
The biggest issue here was that there is absolutely no signage on the outside of the building or the inside of the building to see what the name of this place is. Inside is sparse and the menu is very limited. I wouldn’t go back here.
The restaurant week brunch wasn’t really worth it..I wanted to like the place but the chocolate croissant was a bit raw the chicken sandwich was over brined and not very appetizing
American Son is definitely on my revisit list. The restaurant is inside a Hotel and there is very little signage, so be careful not to pass it. Great decor, cozy and the cocktails are simple but tasty, ALL the pastries are excellent, but the Duck Confit Hash was a tad salty and the French Toast a tad sweet. Minus sitting inside and constantly being bothered by flying insects I have no issues, the staff was friendly and constantly checking to make sure Our needs were met.
Love the place it was beautiful. The food wasn’t worth the price in my opinion both quality and quantity haha. But the staff was great and the atmosphere was great. I’d give it another try for dinner or something. (I went for breakfast/brunch)
Great Restaurant Week Brunch menu. Lots of choices. Recommend Avocado Toast and Ricotta and Lemon Pancakes.
Very hard to find, there is very little signage to know where you are. It can be very loud.
Thank you for the review and feedback! We are looking into getting additional signage for the front that lights up. We hope to have this soon.
Slow service. Uninterested server. Food ok.
Hi Pelican! Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry to hear about your experience at American Son. This is by no way that we train our staff to treat our guest. We understand in DC, you have plenty of options to choose from. A manager will be reaching out to you.
On the day we went, they were booked for a private event an 1.25h after our reservation, so the restaurant was pretty empty and the service was a bit rushed. That being said they had amazing food— Benedict and burgers were amazing and good drinks as well. The place was nicely designed— would definitely go back just not when they had an event.
The food was overpriced for the quality and quantity
Very slow service.
The Snapper was very good, as was the scallops and shrimp! Will definitely be back!
Great place for a lunch. Nice location, service is good and the food is very good.
I have been here 3 times and the service is consistently slow. The server tonight was unattentive and I had to flag him down every time we were in need of service. Will not be coming here again.
My friend and I both thought our meals (scallops; crab potato gnocchi) were lacking in flavor and the wrong temperature. This was a recommended restaurant from a colleague but missed the mark.
Went for dinner. Food was fine. Prices are high.
The tables were too small to hold all of our food. The plates were too small to share the food. The tables were too close to one another when there was plenty of space. The food was very good. The Brussel sprouts were a generous portion and very good.
Hostess was friendly and welcoming. The manager was nice enough to check on us as well as other tables just see how we were enjoying everything. Flick was great super knowledgeable and made great drinks. The food was amazing the rabbit rigatoni and scallops were exceptional and cooked perfectly. The winter green salad was yummy. The desserts I could go for the pan cotta right now! Can’t wait to go back and try brunch.
In town for the weekend
The food was awesome. Very inventive cuisine.
Great Valentines Dinner!
Valentine’s Day meal with my significant other. The drinks and service were amazing. The food was good - highlight was definitely the brussel sprouts and fried rice + kimchee that came with the fish. The duck was underwhelming and the fish felt like it was missing something. Wish we tried the quail and rabbit rigatoni instead.
Food was cold, atmosphere cold, this is a hotel restaurant. We left Mid-meal on Valentine’s Day. Ruined our evening.
It was fine. My salmon / pastrami smoked sandwich was clearly pre- prepared- toast was cold- very little salmon on it. The service was good- coffee fresh.
Very good food - very big portions , the waiter should have warned us. The wine was slightly corked, the waiter did not check . We discovered only later
Such a great, chic spot. The brunch foods is always great, and I tried the pork belly hash this time. Delicious.
It's a great place for brunch. The food is tasty. Only one thing - If the pork belly can have less oil at the bottom of the bowl it will be better. It now seems like the chef forgot to filter the extra oil.
Great vibe and good good.
Service was terrible. We waited a long time to place our order, get food, and the check. Waitress barely cracked a smile. When we tried to flag down other servers it felt like everyone was trying to avoid eye contact. Won’t be back again.
Nice little restaurant, perfect for the boutique Eaton. The restaurant has a section in the back with booths and the front bar area has a full bar, high top tables and smaller table settings with half booths decorated with throw pillows. The food was tasty and the service was good. The quaint and quietness of the restaurant provided the perfect setting for my godson and I to catch up.
Wonderful spot to have a romantic dinner for two.
