The food was excellent (crab cakes
and duck). We loved the assortment of bread before the meal. We were going to National Theatre that evening so the convenience of being located next door was perfect . The best part of our experience was the excellent service that Liscome provided . We knew with his first words that he was going to live up to Marriott's quality service . He was professional and excellent in every way. We definitely felt like we were valued as diners . He really made our evening . He represents Marriott well ! Worth going just to have Liscome as your waiter!"

We dined at this establishment
because of its proximity to The National Theatre. The food was fair, not great and not horrible. The service was slow though the staff was quite friendly. For the cost of the meal we expected much better. Next time we will try one of the other partner restaurants to the theatre. "

25. Brunch, not including booze.
Had a Bloody Mary that was all bloody; no Mary. Food decent. Not great. Atmosphere nice. Great location. Step it up, Marriott! Could be terrific"

Can't say I would go back but if
you just want to stay in, sure you may have dinner here. There was nothing wow! about the food except price. One person ordered the three cheese pasta, which was not appealing and looked dry. It was described as being just ok. I had the lamb shank and though tasted well it appeared to have been previously frozen. It was ok. The mashed potatoes were lacking on flavor and were dry. Kids Mac and cheese was also dry and just ok. This was a $200 dinner, not worth at at all that kind of money."

Went in to grab a bite to eat and
relex after a long day of walking. Menu selection is limited, but also all over the place in regards to theme or speciality. Service was very poor. Took nearly 45 minutes to just get our bill."

We chose this restaurant because
it's right by the National Theatre, but we'll be back because the food was good and, mostly, plentiful. I especially loved the grilled artichoke. However, if service had been a bit faster, there might have been time for dessert."

The service and food were
excellent, but if you're a local like me you may not appreciate the restaurants layout. We felt like we were in the lobby hotel. Highly recommend the food; and if you enjoy a well made cocktail, do order one of the martinis."

Great experience before seeing Hal
Holbrook doing Mark Twain, but the locale is perfect before any. Show at the National Theater"

My only negative comment relates
to the wine list. Outrageously overpriced. A $13.99 bottle of Pinot Noir was $48. Very limted selections under $40. Service was great and food was good."

It's the restaurant for the hotel.
We sat in the bar area where there were tables. The fireplace was very welcome and warm. The food was good. The ambiance was a little corporate. Good for a low key dinner."

That should be one of your choices
on the "recommendations". We take our clients out to a variety of restaurants in DC, and many of them are just too loud for pleasant business conversations. Avenue Grill really works to accommodate our party and any necessary changes in size, to cater to our specific food requirements, and to keep a calm pleasant environment conducive do doing business."

I enjoyed the experience I had at
the Avenue Grill. It is always a pleasure to eat at an establishment that has excellent service. The food was delicious and the service was great!! I will return."

For the Washingtonian crowds and
out of towners, this is a chic and friendly spot. Food might be considered pricey, but the service and atmosphere is great!"

I walk with a walker now, and
don't get downtown to a show very often, so I decided to splurge and go to the Avenue Grill before going to see STOMP. It was so convenient. Close to the theater and we even found parking for free out front! The food was delicious and the wait starr superb."

I was looking for a great
restaurant to enjoy a night out with my wife. We had a great meal before going to the ballet at the Warner Theatre – DC. Needless to say the service was friendly and the waiter made great recommendations. They made me look like I really knew what I was doing. My wife was very pleased."

My partner and I visit Washington
D.C. once or twice a year for a transportation conference that I attend. Over the years we became acquainted with the Avenue Grill in the J.W. Marriott Hotel, just north of the Treasury. The restaurant has excellent service, very fine food, and is good value for the service and quality of food. The dining room is lined with upholstered booths on one side and we believe that keeps the noise level low for people seated in the booths. The wine list is extensive. The dinner menu offers a variety of meats and fish. Unfortunately the profiteroles on the dessert menu vanished a couple of years ago, leaving us with fruit tarts. This place is highly recommended but please bring back the profiteroles."

The MD was at first absent then
cold and distant. Then it took too long to get just water on the table. We had Sazeracs to start. Potent, but cheap bourbon instead of rye. Waitress was attentive and the food, when it finally arrived was good. It's close to National Thester, its chief virtue."
Dined on 12/28/2013
We arrived at Avenue Grill, only
to find that a private party had rented out the entire restaurant. Even though I had a reservation, we were not allowed in. We had to eat at the bar."
Dined on 12/11/2013
Husband and I ate here before
seeing If/Then at the National Theatre next door. We both steaks that were huge and expertly prepared. As a bonus, if you show your theatre tickets, you get a special bonus that is definitely worthwhile. Highly recommend."
Dined on 12/6/2013
We tried the Avenue Grill for a
pre-theatre dinner mainly because it was right down the block from the National Theatre. Our expectations were not high because the restaurant is in the nearby Marriott. What a nice surprise! The food and service were really outstanding. We both ordered steak, one rare and the other medium rare - each came perfectly cooked and very tender and tasty. The asparagus and potatoes were also excellent and cooked just right. And the Meyer Lemon crème brulee was likewise perfect. The service both at reception and at table was attentive and courteous. This is a nice find, and we will be back."

went here before a show at the
Warner Theater. good selections, everything was fine. it took a little longer to come out of the kitchen than expected but we were plenty early for the event."

It was nice to find this quiet
restaurant after traveling all day. The food was good, the crab soup especially, very hot and nice for a blustery day outside"

A very convenient place to take
pre-theater dinner, and the food was good; service excellent."

Host was exceptionally nice and
personable. Sat in room with fireplace--very cozy. Food and service very good."

We ate at this restaurant because
of its proximity to the National Theater and it was recommended by the National Theater in the valet notice. However, despite the 20% discount because we had tickets for the National Theater, I would not recommend this restaurant. Their service was poor. Everything arrived late except the bill. The bread did not arrive until after we had ordered and had our drinks for awhile. They never refilled the water glasses. The timing between courses was too long. And then the server gave us the bill without letting us order dessert or coffee. We had told the restaurant it was our anniversary dinner. They did present us with some chocolate dipped strawberries in recognition of our celebration."
Dined on 11/8/2013
While the food at the Avenue was
fine, several items on the menu at the restaurant did not match the one online. More importantly, the service was incredibly slow. The waitress was courteous, but my party waited for over an hour before receiving our entree. They ended up giving us a 20% discount for the inconvenience. I would not recommend it if you plan on doing anything else that night."

This is a really good restaurant
for a hotel restaurant. The bone-in Ribeye was as good as it gets."
Dined on 11/3/2013
Food was okay, very loud and not
conducive to conversation."
Dined on 10/23/2013
Food was so-so and menu was not
the same as the on-line posted menu. We were disappointed in the limited fish/seafood options offered."
Dined on 10/10/2013
Not an impressive array of food,
but ok for a hotel-based establishment. Service was pretty slow - the hostess had to offer us drinks. And it was not busy by any stretch of the imagination. The dessert tart that came to the table was cold - should have been warm. Probably wouldn't return to eat here - plenty of other options in the area that have better food."

This restaurant inside the
Marriott near the White House looked great online...but the actual menu differed greatly, with fewer offerings. It took more than a few minutes for our waitress to arrive. The place was eerily quiet. Every once in a while we'd see a server go past but not sure where they were going, maybe delivering room service. We were the lone guests. After our waitress took our order, she didn't come back. Angus burger was not cooked to order, was dry. Waitress offered to get another. Second burger basically the same, but I ate it. After another extended absence she returned. Willnot recommend this place."

Good breakfast buffet, service

The cervice was good,but my
partners salmon had to be sent back as.it was undercooked. My crab cakes were full of pieces of shell. I had 7 pieces on the side of my plate at the end of the meal."

Nice place for a quick bite before
a show at the National Theater or Warner Theatre. Prompt service and awareness of getting you out in time for your show is a huge plus."
Dined on 4/13/2013
Avenue Grill is too convenient for
dinner after an afternoon show at the National Theater, which is exactly why we went. I used Open Table to make dinner reservations after Spamalot last Saturday. My wife, her 22 year old birthday girl, and my teenaged daughter & her friend loved the evening. Avenue Grill capped it off nicely. We ordered a great variety from burgers to the rib-eye my wife & I shared and thought everything tasted super. Since our reseervation wasn't until 7:30, we ended up in a near empty restaurant when the 4 pm show let out around 6:30. By the time we left around 8 pm, the place was packed. 20% theater ticket discount was a pleasant surprise."
Dined on 4/13/2013
This is a lovely setting for a
quiet reunion. We had a lovely time, were able to spend several hours chatting long after having paid the bill and the service was perfect. I definitely recommend this restaurant for larger groups. There's plenty of space."
