    Food was absolutely amazing. Anyone who complains about “price” not equaling value. They clearly do not eat out much at fine establishments. This food was amazing. The lamb and short rib entree were to die for. Dessert was absolutely amazing we got the black cherry cake desert. I couldn’t recommend here enough.

    The service was great. I had the 4-course meal and every part of it was amazing. My only regret is not doing the wine pairing with the meal. I even got a tour of the hotel and the wonderful amenities it offers. Great experience.

    Best meal we have had in DC. The crab cake and tomato soup were outstanding as starters. The salmon and yellowtail were exquisitely prepared. The cinnamon fritters were fabulous as a dessert. Service was impeccable. Setting was relaxing and beautiful. Could not provide a higher recommendation.

    For an elegant brunch the service was horrendous. Never got my water glass refilled. Nobody ever came over to ask if I wanted another cocktail. Either understaffed or discriminatory because we were a young couple, but for an expensive brunch the service was extremely subpar. Would not recommend

    The service and food was lovely. It is a bit on the pricey side but we had a great brunch in a lovely dining room and they even brought us complimentary macarons for my husbands birthday unprompted. We stayed at the Jefferson (also amazing) so we wanted to try this restaurant. After eating here I would recommend coming here even if you are not staying here. I would recommend adults only based on the atmosphere (we have 3 kids but they weren’t with us).

    Outstanding experience! Had a business dinner for three of us who regularly eat at Michelin star restaurants and we were all very impressed. The service is impeccable, starting with the wait captain mixing smoked old fashioned drinks at the table side. Food was very good with fresh ingredients well-prepared and elegantly plated. Wine list is filled with gems and bargains- I’m a Californian wine chauvinist and was amazed at the availability and pricing of Scarecrow, Schafer, and Bond among others. Even had some solid choices from Paso Robles!

    Rude waiter, he rushed us out of there, did not even offer or ask if we want anything else. We were there for our bday celebration and requested on the booking. It ruined our birthday plan, no cake offer. Too bad we love the place but too afraid to go back for this kind of service.

    The Greenhouse Benedict was incredible. Even my wife who avoids bread said they were very good. The pancakes and French toast were great as well. They sat us in front of the gas fireplace which was very welcome on a chilly January Sunday. Service was super attentive and professional. Great place for brunch. Cappuccino was excellent also.

    This place has by far the best breakfast in DC. It’s classy, has amazing architecture, it’s reasonably priced, it has great food variety, and the food is amazing. Combine those few things with the fact that the service was impeccable and you have the best breakfast in DC.
