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.

    Shrimp and grits were great, the fried brussel sprouts were tasty but quite salty. Nice wine selection, including a reasonably priced Joseph Carr Cab. Nice atmosphere, but we dined quite early so can't really comment on noise level as restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived. Only complaint was difficulty finding entrance!

    I was new to DC and wanted to try something new for my 27th birthday. Everyone was so nice in accommodating my group of friends and made the dinner go smoothly. Ashley called me to make sure the reservation was correct and was very helpful in setting up the dinner on the rooftop. The food was great and our server Elizabeth was excellent. She was very nice, timely and very efficient. So hard to find in any restaurant nowadays. Loved everything.

    Enjoyed dinner with the family and my UMD student! Once we found the door and stairs to the second floor restaurant we were greeted by a pleasant hostess. There is a large bar in middle of the space and floor to ceiling windows overlooking U Street. The menu has some unique items and everyone in my party had a hard time deciding what to order. Standouts were the fillet with Brussels sprouts and the stuffed lobster. The lobster quinoa appetizer was excellent as well. Overall a funky fun spot with delicious food and drinks. Try the Sangria!

    Took my wife here for her birthday dinner. What a great find! Food was fantastic as was the service. We had a table by one of the windows so were able to look out at the busy street-life below. One of the best steaks I've had. Also had a really good tomato soup that was lighter than most but full of great taste. We'll go back!

    I got a Gilt City voucher and could not the deal. It's not an unreasonable priced restaurant (the deal made it that much sweeter), and I will be going back without one in the near future. And unlike other places we've used vouchers, they treated us like kings. The server was one of the best we've had and we really loved our steaks (and my bf is a serious steak person). My favorite part were the Cesar parm brussel sprouts and the excellent tempernillo wine. Thanks Lost Society!!

    My monkfish was cooked perfectly and my boyfriends steak was cooked to how he like it. (He is extremely picky when it comes to steak) Service was attentive but not annoying. The down side to this resturant is the nosie level. You have to talk very very loudly over the music. Also the tables are so close together that since everyone was talking louding over the music I could hear the converstaions on either side of me and I am sure they heard ours. I'd would probably not go back in less for some reason I had to sit through a dinner with someone I didn't like. Than I could get good food and blame not talking to them on the music...

    We went on a Thursday evening and the place had a decent crowd. It was WAY too loud and I found everyone was YELLING at each other. I think I may have some hearing loss after that dinner. We sat at a booth and pulled the curtains but that really didn't make much difference. Then we had a server who would open the curtain to bring food and then walk off! If you found the curtain closed shouldn't you close it back? The food and drinks were FABULOUS! The fried brussel sprouts are delish! We will go back but hopefully it will be WAY less noisy!

    Ore meal was good; it is a cool atmosphere, but the price of entrees, particularly as it fashions itself as a steak house, it not at the level of a Mortons or other steakhouses. Please the food or steak is too well done, and it was a la carte style/ It was not worth a 125 restaurant tab sans tip It has a cool atmosphere, etc. . Our server was great and very attentive.

    Lost Society is a great location to meet friends after work or to celebrate a special occasion. Service is excellent, food selections were yummy especially the specials and great drinks. Even though the noise level is energetic, you can still have great table conversations. The quiet corners provide just the right amount of privacy for a special dinner.

    This was our first time dining at Lost Society. Our waitress, Elizabeth was very nice, knowledeable and friendly. We dined and they had a special Free Wine with two entrees, really good. The rib eye steak was tender and seasoned well. The cajon seasoned t-bone had a little bit of fat around the edges which the chef should have trimmed off a little more. The only down side is that mini cup with a pinch of fries. The restaurant should implement a larger portion of fries with the expensive meal. I feel I could have swallowed the fires down in one gulp that was the only down-side.

    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.

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!
