Diner Reviews
  • "Our out-of-town friends were staying at the hotel, so we thought 12 Ria would be a convenient place for our pre-theater dinner with them. The food was good - not great, but good, service was excellent and the noise level moderate, making conversation easy. And the cost was quite reasonable. Moderately priced valet parking was a plus. Overall, we were very satisfied."

  • "Entering the restaurant, there was no hosts to greet us. We were about to seat ourselves when the manager came out and sat us. Only after I gestured to him for attention. The table was ok, though small for 2 people. There was 1 server and 1 assistant for the whole place, odd for a Saturday night. After a short wait he came to get our drink order upon which I replied that we needed a drink menu. Ten minutes go by and we place our order. The main reason we went to 15RIA was for the local, fresh ingredients. My wife's seafood smelled rotten, my entree came out with a burned crab cake and was missing a key ingredient, chimichurri on my chimichurri steak. The sides were bland, the bread showed up late, the service was blah. Overall disappointed."

  • "The service was absolutely awful...with drink order not coming for 25 minutes...the salad made it out before the drinks. The food was served lukewarm to cold and the table received meals at staggered times rather than all at one time. The food was not very tasty either. Sorry that we wasted a meal on this place."

  • "Ok, buffalo wings delicious but service a bit slow."

  • "It was ok. Nothing special. He got the steak, as thin as a chicken cutlet, I got the salmon. Yes nothing crazy but good. Weren't feeling too adventurous and the prices were a bit higher than we were expecting. Food was good but nothing special. Service was acceptable. They kept the waters full though we rarely saw our waiter. No need to make a reservation, it appeared no one else thinks the place is special either."

  • "While this restaurant may not have been the hottest, trendiest place to go in DC, it was by for the most pleasant meal we had during our 4 night stay. It was a nice, quiet, relaxed restaurant. There was a fireplace, which was perfect for the mid-March snow we walked through to get there. I had the roast chicken which was very tender. My husband had the rigatoni and enjoyed it very much. There was a slight error on my order. I asked for the curry sauce on the side. It was plated with the sauce rimming the plate, but on the rice. I didn't complain, as I could eat the chicken and most of the rice. The waiter noticed it (the runner brought the meal out) and gave us a complimentary dessert for the mistake. The chocolate lava cake was delish!"

  • "Let me say up front that we were looking for a locally flavor place with a wide menu of Fish and vegetarian selections. The fish selection was good but only one item was vegetarian. The atmosphere was a bit stuffy and very hotel looking - good reason - it is located in a hotel. We left after reviewing the menu. The food could have been great but needed a larger vegetarian menu."

  • "The food was not good at all, service was so so and the locale is totally worn out. They promised valet-parking and this was non-existent when we got there so I had to drive around for 20 minutes at 20 degrees looking for one. Will never come back."

  • "While it wasn't very crowded early Tuesday evening, the food and service were all spot on. I tried both the chili baked salmon and the pan seared halibut. Both were perfect."

  • "I went here for brunch because I had a restaurant.com gift certificate. It was absolutely nothing special. The service was poor, the waiter messed up our order twice, the brunch, although decently price, had no flair, and the dining room was bland. They did have a nice fire though."

  • "Service could have been more attentive, however food was great and good place to try for restaurant week!"

  • "It's your typical hotel restaurant. The food is just ok. There were hardly any people there for lunch and the service was pretty good."

  • "This was my second time going to 15 Ria and I had another great experience. The drinks were great and the food was wonderful. I am already thinking about my next visit."

  • "Ria 15 feels a bit like a hotel restaurant. But that is to do it a great injustice. The setting is more like an upscale resort hotel, plush and quiet, lovely chairs at tables placed at a very comfortable distance from each other around a homely real fire. The service was faultless and, while I did not order haute cuisine (steak frites with arugula salad and a side of grilled asparagus), everything was cooked or prepared excellently. And all this at a very reasonable price for such a pleasant environment. Certainly good for business lunches where the focus is work rather than overpriced food."

  • "The tomato basil soup tasted as if it was poured directly from a can. The Cobb salad was 90% made of white lettuce core."

  • "The food here was edible and I had a fine time but it was nothing extraordinary. The Salmon steak I had tasted like a salmon steak that I've made at home a number of times. I will say though that the table bread was really good as was the cheesecake brulee."

  • "It was a great place to meet some old friends, my steak was cooked perfectly and the frites were very yummy. Wine list is mediocre at best but I would go back."

  • "Entering through the hotel lobby was a bit noisy and distracting and I was surprised how OPEN the dining area was to both the bar and lounge area as well as the hotel hall way.The service was professional and prompt.We got an exceptional value due to the certificate from restaurant dot com. The crab dip was delicious, the trout looked superb, my meat loaf was a bit mushy but I could really taste the fresh ingredients. The dessert was exceptional. All in all it was a good experience and as good as the food was, If they keep stocking their certificates, we will likely return when looking for great value in an expensive Dupont Circle location."

  • "The food itself is the only reason I gave 3 stars. The service was horrible- they messed up our drink orders several times and we were constantly chasing our server down to order things. He messed up our order, didn't apologize, was extremely slow moving. The crowd there was very noisy and rowdy and we could not hear our own conversation over theirs. Very disappointed- will never go back"

  • "The "Simply Grilled" red snapper special and the salmon were both very good."
