Teddy & The Bully Bar Ratings and Reviews
Delicious but pricey for the amount of food to share. The zucchini blossoms were only two tiny ones--difficult to share. I was just expecting at least 4 blossoms. The decor was super--reflective (figuratively and literally), modern with traditional aspects.
Great sounding menu; disappointing execution. Out of three diners most choices fell short and were expensive for what was served. And none of us are opposed to spending money for great food. This was not great. The flatbread was the only win. Will not be returning.
Great food and attentive service. Only drawback was the presence of a dj who started at 11 and made it almost impossible to hear the person sitting next to you. Hard to catch up with old friends with dance remixes of Rod Stewart and Madonna blaring in the background.
Dining environment is good in contemporary setting. Comfortable seating. Food was mostly good, although restaurant week dinner menu not good value, as the desserts had no presentation and not worth the money. Service left much to be desired. Good luck getting anyone's attention. Waiter seemed to be specially trained to ignore customers. And this was when the restaurant was almost empty.
This was our second visit to Teddy and the Bully Bar and another fantastic experience start to finish! We absolutely love the nod to our 26th President in the theme that runs throughout this establishment. The drinks are on-point, creative and perfectly prepared. Some menu hilights: lobster deviled eggs (ambrosia!) and the watermelon salad which is the perfect compliment to many of the main dishes. Probably our new favorite restaurant in DC - keep up the great work!
Went for restaurant week lunch. Was pleased with the options available including many vegetarian and seasonal items. Food was delicious and generous without feeling too rich or too much. Service was attentive though not very open or friendly. Two people in my party ordered a sandwich but neither the menu or server mentioned that a side was included. While we enjoyed our side salad, we saw other tables getting other options and wish those had been offered/explained to us.
The food was fantastic! I went during restaurant week so I was able to have three courses. The lobster deviled eggs were so tasty, the zucchini risotto which was so creamy and delicious, but very heavy, and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Save to say, I went all out. But it was all 100% worth it.
I went during Restaurant week so it might not have been the most normal of meals. The food was all tasty (all three of us enjoyed what we chose) but the service was a little bit slow (it was restaurant week, so take that with a grain of salt). It was about an hour and a half for the whole meal, not a problem for dinner, not ideal for lunch. That being said, service was polite, food was delicious. I'd be happy to go back.
Great service here ☺.....The unlimited mimosas, dj and ambiance are the draw to the restaurant. Sadly, the food is just ok. They really want you to spend 40 bucks hands down. But the messed up part is you're not allowed to take a doggy bag home, even though you just shelled out $$ for bread eggs and Andre sparking wine..... I wanted to just get the unlimited drinks and a few items of food but they said I couldn't only get the drinks. The food plates are small, you have to order 3 to be full. Over all its a pricey beautifully decorated restaurant with a young hip crowd on Sundays. So I'm not against the restaurant, but won't make it my usual place. TIP: you want unlimited mimosas with less glitz and glamor, go across the street to Irish Whiskey.
