A word from Lost Society - DC
Perched a top the intersection of 14th and U Streets, Lost Society offers food, drink, and a killer view from its roof deck. The kitchen, run by Executive Chef Joseph Evans, serves up dishes that do justice to the restaurant's qualification as a 'boutique steakhouse.' Steak selections, in addition to other meat, fish, and vegetarian entrée options, render Lost Society an excellent destination for even the pickiest eaters. The bars (there are four) feature wine, beer, and cocktail options that complement a meal, a night on the town, or both. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Four of us had a later dinner at Lost Society on Saturday. The food got mixed reviews: the two steak-eaters were happy with their meals; the two seafood eaters not so much. Cocktails were sub-par. The atmosphere was fun and energetic -- but the food was just not worth the $$$."

  • "I had heard great things about the steaks, and not-so-great things about the service. While the steak wasn't the "best in DC" as some have claimed, it was remarkably good considering the final check was about half what you'd expect at a traditional steakhouse. The service was superb, so I guess all the complainers just had bad luck. I got the strip and my wife got the country fried steak. The breading-to-meat ratio on the latter was too high, so stick with the broiler. House wine is also a good value; nothing fancy, but it's nice to have a little wine with dinner without breaking the bank. The covered roofdeck was a really nice place for an early nightcap. The scene there is hip yet relaxed and not too pretentious. Would visit again."

  • "I just to go to law society celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We were originally supposed to be a large party ended up only being six of us. The hostesses were very gracious and accommodating with all the changes. The service was great. The food was wonderful. Their whole menu, esp the steaks, can rival any high end steakhouse in the city. We definately want to return just to sit out at the fooftop bar."

  • "Food was good. Unfortunately, with many newer restaurants the staff is not professionally trained in table service ettiquette. Like DO NO stack the dirty dishes ar the table in front of the customer. They should be moved to the serivce areas for this. Despite a full bar, I asked for a Bloody Mary which they only serve on week-ends????"

  • "Really good food. The nightclub half, upstairs of the restaurant, was a little noisy- but we were there at 9:00-11:00 on a friday night. Loved the brussels sprouts, but the chips they bring as a sub for a bread basket were really lame. Not worth it! Otherwise, all the food was very good."

  • "My friends and I absolutely LOVE the happy hour deals here. Great ambience, energetic and friendly staff, and a trendy setting make for a perfect night out! If you're really lucky, you'll have Reece as a your server - who is so fun!"

  • "The entrance is actually on U Street, next to Subway. Not sure what I would find when I climbed the stairs to the second floor, but what a surprise and a delight! Amazing atmosphere, wonderful ambience, excellent food! Looking forward to my next visit to DC so that I can return here!"

  • "Lost Society provided great service from the moment we entered. The hostess was very accommodating to our needs as well as the waiter. We had a group of eight and everyone was impressed with the food, view and service."

  • "My girlfriend and I were in for dinner and we had a great meal. We dined on a Wednesday night and we did not realize it until we were told by our servers that they had a special wine night and we got a free bottle of wine with a purchase of two entrees which we were going to get regardless so it was a nice surprise/treat. Great food and Great Service."

  • "My friends and I decided to do have a night out and came across Lost Society. Definitely a place I'd go to again. Great ambience. Our waitress was fantastic."

  • "Next time I'm bringing my Bose noise canceling headphones. So I can Enjoy the Brussels sprouts from heaven, the waitress from back home, and the steak (worth a special occasion). Sadly it was like being trapped on the housewives of Atlanta all the shouting and craziness. I would truly suggest private rooms that are soundproofed for the restaurant patrons. You have the best location, concept etc. But the noise sucked"

  • "This was my second visit to Lost Society and I enjoyed it as much as the first. My friend and I both started with the Ahi tuna and Lobster Quinoa appetizer, which were delicious and well presented. The star of the show was their bistro filet, which was accompanied by roasted brussels sprouts drizzled with a hollendaise sauce. The quality of the filet was outstanding. Lost Society has a nice wine list. Be aware, however, this restaurant is also a nightclub and it gets very loud with large groups. However, the food is excellent and stands on its own. Give this place a try!"

  • "Nothing bad to say at all, its about our sixth visit to this local special spot! Our server took great care of us and the drink specials were very unique, flavorful and strong enough! The dinner special was great and huge, had to take half of it home and it made for a great follow up meal the next day! And we topped it off with our favorite bread pudding desert - as in, its nothing like other places nasty stuff - here is a fluffy, high quality very tasty wonderful from bite to bite only to miss it once its gone!"

  • "So, we first arrived and sat for 9 minutes before anyone every came to see us. UGH! The only reason we know this is because we checked in on Foursquare when we sat down. So, just as we were about to leave a waiter asked if we had been helped and felt so bad that he jumped into help. Reese was his name! And his is awesome!! The rest of the night was amazing.... food is delicious. Drinks are strong and yummy! The brussels sprouts are so good!! Creamed spinach was rich and creamy! Great wine list! Our steaks were perfect! And, that damn smore dessert thing with charbroiled marshmallow on top - I could swim in that thing! Holy cow is it good!"

  • "The food was great, but the servers were slow, bad at taking food orders, we're way to attentive at the beginning and then not good at following up with US after our food arrived. The music was too loud to have any conversation without yelling. "

  • "Great food and the waiter was very personable and energetic which made for a good experience. There was a draft by the window but it was tolerable. Food was delicious. Great choice for a date."

  • "We dined at Lost Society for an out of town friends birthday. The food was amazing and the drinks were suburb! I love the macaroni and cheese, but the short ribs can be left behind. They were very short on the ribs. "

  • "Lost society is the place to be! The food is amazing, the service is great, everybody I talked to there was very nice and welcome and all for a great price!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The staff at Lost Society are delightful. Energetic and friendly. They were particularly enthusiastic about the Brussell Sprouts which I found to be soggy and greasy. The "petite steak frites" was well cooked but the frites were sparse and greasy and the accompanying carrots disappointing. The highly-recommended Kale salad was over-dressed and over-raisined (if such a word exists). The table near a TV and the bar was difficult for a party of elders (i.e. over 50 and clearly not the restaurant's demographic) The cocktails, however, were sublime so would recommend as interesting place to have a drink to watch the hustle and bustle of 14th and U Streets. "

  • "Found this 1000 point table place on Opentable and chose it over many places in Georgetown and Dupont Circle. The reviews were great and I wanted to check out the U-street corridor; Glad I did!! My friend from out of town, who preferred georgetwon really loved this place. That is saying alot because she has high standards. Being from California and living in Tahoe, she loves the water, but this place was really a surprise. Although it doesnt appear that way when you first walk in, the food more than makes up for the simple ambiance. We had the Tuesday dinner for two, and for the price it exceeded expectations. The steak was excellent and the sides very tasty. This is the place for Tuesday nights with buy 1 get second drink free."

  • "I had heard so many great things about Lost Society for dining that I finally made reservations for my dad's birthday. Unfortunately we were all dissapointed on the actual quality of the food. The place is really nice, has a great scene, very hip and it does have great service. The drinks are phenomenal!! By far some of the best mojitos (passion fruit and regular) that I have had in while. But considering their specialty is steak, it left a lot to be desired. I had the medallions, which were ok, but not great. Do not get the Country Fried Steak, it tasted like it had been boiled it was soggy and was bland! There are still other cuts we did not try, but considering our initial experience, will not be going back to eat, only for drinks."

  • "This was my first visit to Lost Society. I'd classify it as a really good restaurant disguised as a nightclub. Upon reaching the door outside, I was somewhat surprised to encounter a doorman checking ID's. After sitting down for dinner, any concerns went away. My server was delightful and I had her select 3 courses with wine. The first, a rabbit terrine was delicious, followed by a beautiful dry aged filet. It was accompanied by flashed Brussell Sprouts that were crispy and lightly topped with a blue cheese. Finally, dessert was a rich and gooey Smores tart, which was served in a Graham cracker crust. The wine pairings were well selected and I was very impressed. This place gets hopping as a nightclub late night, so be ready."

  • "My wife and I decided to check out Lost Society after seeing it on a reality show. Knowing that U Street is a trendy area in DC, we thought it would be nice for a dinner date night spot. The Hostess originally sat us right next to the bar where awaiting parties were hanging out at and we immediately requested a seating change and they quickly accommodated us which we were thankful of! Appetizers looked great but wasn't satisfying and we went with the recommendation of our Waitress for our entrees. The entrees completely made up for the appetizers! We ordered the 18 oz steak and stuff lobster! We are still talking about how good the entrees were! Can't wait to return for an encore of our entrees! "

  • "I selected Lost Society because my out of town guest had a business "happy hour" event already scheduled there and I thought this would make travel a non issue for her. I liked the atmosphere, view of the street and the wait staff. The noise level was "energetic" and it was difficult for us to catch up and really visit. The food was not great. I had the arugula salad with bacon and apples and it was tasteless, I left half of it there. I also ordered lobster stuffed with crab and it was more lobster shreds mixed with crab shreds in a lobster shell. It too was not great. My guest ordered a salad as she is a vegetarian and she said it was good."

  • "The setting was very nice. The servers were very energetic. Unfortunately, my friend's salmon was VERY undercooked. And our dessert, a s'more pie, was a miss for us. The table chips were great though!"

  • "I visited after seeing an open table ad. Was greeted warmly. My waitress Regina was excellent and attentive. The selection of craft beers is limited, but adequate. They provided house made potato chips, super! The meal was provided quickly and properly presented, good size and appetizing. Portia, the manager, stopped by to check on my meal and unlike the typical manager who flashes by took time to chat. The food was outstanding. For dessert, I enjoyed the warm bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream, Fantastic. This restaurant is now on my preferred list. It is a perfect place to take a date or significant other, quiet environment suitable for conversation. I gave it five stars because that was all that there were, definitely 5+!"

  • "This place has one of the best locations in DC. The ambiance is very nice and it is always crowded. The food is trying hard to be fantastic and almost gets there. The one thing that I can't get over is the staff. The bouncers always have attitudes, the hostess will never seat your party unless everyone is there(even though there is no where to wait), and they autograt everything weather getting a drink or eating(I would always tip more if they wouldn't do this). I will continue to go here every once in a awhile, but would not ever consider this place my favorite spot."

  • "I want start off with the fact that our waitress was fantastic. She was busy but always made a note to stop by offer recommendations and suggestions, and was simply pleasant to talk to. The food was great and very appealing looking. The strength of this place the ambience. Very well apotnted unique styling. The loung up stairs overlooks a large portion of the city. Great place a drink or romantic night out."

  • "The place wasn't bad; however, I wasn't quite sure of its identity. The menu was very limited, and even with its top shelf entree its was a little over price and not really good. The staff, though, were pretty good."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We both ordered the steak special that came with jumbo lump crab, Bearnaise sauce and chopped asparagus with two sides, mashed potatoes and flash-fried brussel sprouts drizzled with Caesar salad dressing and Parmesan. It was all INCREDIBLY delicious. We really didn't have many complaints -- other than we'd expected more crab and asparagus on top of our steaks. It was more of a light garnish of crab and asparagus (I'm almost positive it was one chopped up stalk and a few crumbles of crab.) Other than that, we loved it! We ate all of it! We wanted to lick our plates! It was pretty great."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We were seated at the entrance, across from the bar, potentially a loud location, but noise was not an issue. The specials of the night were very appealing and I choose a monkfish entree while my wife ordered a ribeye. The beet, chevre, and Arugula salad with champagne vinaigrette came as sliced beets sitting on top of dressing and surrounded by Arugula. Any chevre in the dish had to have been incorporated into the dressing. The beets may as well have come from a can. The hair that I picked off of the salad was also not inspiring. As for the main course, The steak had been ordered medium rare and was just barely holding on as medium. The monkfish was delicious, but the portion was miniscule, two wrapped bites of less than 3 ozs."

  • "Went with a friend for a pre-show dinner and even though we had early reservations, they took their sweet time in seating us. Not a very good first impression. Service was just fair because it took awhile to give our order to a fairly dis-engaged waitress who apparently did not want to be working on Saturday night. Decent food for the money, but not a great experience."
