Met a date there to celebrate the election count finally being over the 270 for Biden so the city was celebrating! It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Of course, because of the location and views, drinks and food were a bit high but that’s also DC. We weren’t on the side with the best views but it was still nice though a bit squished. This is the first place I’ve been in D.C. where the rules are that the customers must put their masks back on each time the servers approach the table - to take or deliver orders, refill waters, check on you etc. - or they stand back 6 feet and wait. That’s probably a good rule. I’ve just never seen this done.

The ambiance was great . food selection soso.
Wish there were more options !
We ended up grabbing dinner downstairs at the restaurant . But the food there was ok .
Wasn’t worth the price in our opinion small portions . Maybe it was Covid cost savings but felt that there could have been a bit more per plate .. l

Thank You TheodoreD, We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us & the outdoor patio space, We did recently add a flatbread to the food menu to give it more density. We also have heaters that we have added to keep the rooftop patio season going as long as we can. Look forward to having you back with us soon!

Fantastic, new rooftop spot with magnificent view, friendly staff, and great drinks. I was expecting a broader food menu, but if you’re just in the market for drinks and a snack, this is a perfect option. Will return.

I had the most wonderful time at Rooftop at Riggs my family was in town and we wanted to experience it for ourselves. I made a reservation through open table and the staff was very accommodating trying to make sure we were happy with our seats. I ordered a Rhubarb Daisy (which may be my favorite cocktail of all time) and we also enjoyed at the table an old fashion, wine and creamsicle ice cream sandwiches. Everything was timely and delicious. My dad liked the ice cream sandwiches so much he nearly ordered a second round. I can’t wait to come back and try more of the menu.

Wonderful evening on the roof of the Riggs hotel. Interesting and fun menu with bites of food and delicious cocktails! They also have wines and beer available. Nice attentive staff with socially distanced tables with a view of downtown DC
