A word from M & S Grill - Washington DC
The M&S Grill offers a classic, traditional American grill menu featuring an extensive selection of steak, prime rib, pot roast, roasted chicken and seafood specialties. With the high ceiling and stained glass-accented bar, it is a popular spot for casual dining or to enjoy cocktails made the old fashioned way. Located across the street from the Metro Center in DC's theater district, M&S Grill is three blocks east of the White House, one block off Pennsylvania Avenue, convenient to major museums, and just 5 blocks from the MCI Center. The Washington Times says "...the restaurant has a friendly feeling ...the service is on par with more upscale restaurants..."

M & S Grill - Washington DC reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Lack of attention to detail

    My guest was brought the wrong lunch order and then had to wait while they prepared what he had wanted. When it was delivered, it still was not exactly what he had asked for.

    started off great. hostess seated my wife and I and our four kids. they gave us kids' menus complete with pages to color - only NO crayons? I am okay with restaurants with no crayons, but the service was so slow the kids got bored and wanted to color.

    There was only one person at reception desk and it took so time for her to seat me. The waitress wasn't as professional as one would expect at this type of restraut. Plus, on top of this, they ran out of the main steak - what type of "grill" is this?

    I came to M&S with some clients and we had a great night. I had reservations and we were sat in a little cubby with just our table. It was unexpected but provided us with the opportunity to provide the personnel attention I was looking for. The food was great! We had the shrimp/bacon/barbeque appetizers and I have to say, it was one of the best things I have ever tasted. Service was great. He was attentive but not bothersome. The only bad thing about M&S is that you are in Washington DC and I'm from Wisconsin. Rest assured that if I come back to DC I will stop in again.

    We were in and out in under and hour, and that has not always been the case at M & S Grill. Our food was promptly delivered and the server was not over-bearing. We both had salads and they were delicious. I'm glad to see that this restaurant has figured out how to get people on limited time schedules fed and on their way in an hour.

    We truly enjoyed dining here. It is a bit cramped as far as space. But luckily, we had a booth and that is to be expected in the D.C. area. Our server was knowledgeable and extremely energetic. He was able to make great suggestions on drinks by the limited information I gave him. Yusef was great. We would definitely return and suggest to others.

    My wife and I both ordered the Filet and crabcake. Eventhough the quality of the dinner was above average the price was high. They price them self in the same range as a Mortons or a Ruth Chris Steak House , however they are a step below. Overall the evening was still enjoyable. (I would go again)

    Despite having seen underwhelming reviews, we came to M&S Grill because it was convenient to the Warner Theater. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice of an experience it was. The service was excellent, the facility was clean and in excellent condition. The food was good and the price was fair.

    At first, I was delighted to be seated next to the front window, however, the server's station was right behind me so there was constant noise. Then I was disappointed again when I realized I had pulled up menu for the F Street location instead of the 13th street branch and none of the items I came for were on the 13th street menu (Fried Oysters and Swordfish Casino). I will give the Maine Lobster Bisque props for presentation and flavor, but that's where the flavor stopped. I had the Mixed Grill; beef medallions requested medium came out well done and bland; salmon portion was about a 3x3 inch square, 3 tiny shrimp rounded out the meal. Server must have been new; he never told me about the specials that server Carlos informed his tables.

    t8teVIP
    Dined on 4/13/2013
    What happened to this place? No more white table cloths, service is much more casual, and you can't even get a baked potato anymore. Add to that they no longer have valet parking, and we don't have much reason to go back. We mainly went there when going to the theatre, but the key attraction was the valet parking where we could leave our car until after the show. Food wasn't great. I strongly suspect the "filet" they served me was actually a sirloin. It was cut thin and seemed too large to have been sliced from a tenderloin. Service was VERY slow. We were seated at 6:30 and rushed to finish our entrees to leave by 7:45. I hope these changes aren't showing up in other M&S locations. We used to enjoy them, but maybe no longer...

    We dined at M&S last week pre-theater. The service was great and she delivered on her promise to get us out on time. The food, however, was lacking. My salmon was overcooked and dry, and the mashed potatoes gluey and lifeless. The green beans were the best part of the entree - fresh and crisp. The other three in our party had more positive dining experiences, and the crab soup was lively and full of taste. The overall experience was okay, but I won't hurry back.

Convenient location, right next to Metro Center. Seafood was excellent for me and my wife, and kids were happy with their mac and cheese. Service was prompt as well. Good place for families.

    Overall pretty consistent with other visits. The service is ok, got better as the night went along. My salmon was overcooked and my sides were not how I ordered them; they were out of one entree by 7:30, but my friends enjoyed their Caesar salad and blackened tilapia. I'll go back because I've had better visits there and it's a great location for work. Great happy hour!

    Since reopenining after fire damage, M&S Grill has more reasonably sized (smaller) portions, but higher prices with fewer menu options. We were disappolinted to find many of our favorite dishes were no longer on the menu and only salmon as the fish. What a shame. We work nearby and would eat here once a week if only the menu were what it once was.

    I made a reservation for 12 people (most of whom were from out of town attending a conference nearby). We all showed up ON TIME and we were seated. But it took over an hour to be served! The wait staff never came by the see if anyone needed another drink, did not fill up our water glasses and did not even bring any bread/rolls. Guess we were a 'captive audience' because the wait staff was going to get a 18% tip (automatic for parties over 6 people).
