Diner Reviews
  • "This was my first time at Odeon Café and I am now a huge fan! We had a reservation for 9 pm on a Saturday and when we went in we were immediately greeted and seated. Our waitress came right over to explain the menu and take our drink order. We ordered Bruschetta as an appetizer, it was good. My fiance ordered Manicotti, I ordered Scampi E Granchi with Angel hair pasta, and my friend ordered Scampi E Granchi with tortellini. We all loved our meals! Our only issue was that for it not being crowded in there, it took a while for us to get our food. And we did have to ask for bread. Other than having to ask for bread and having to wait a while for our food, we had a great evening with delicious food. I will definitely be going back!"

  • "Great atmosphere! My girlfriend is a huge fan of mozzarella sticks, and Odeon Cafe had some of the best ones we've had together. Our plates were delicious too, but my lobster ravioli portion size could have been bigger. As delicious as it was, I was left hungry."

  • "Food was delicious. Had seafood linguine and sauce was exquisite. Serving was just right. Hubby had spaghetti bolognese seasoned well and plenty of meat. Service was very good, we could have a conversation easily and very convenient location for travel.Had a large room upstairs which would be good for groups and events. We prefer the main floor and window seating makes for interesting views. Have great selection of entrees, salads, appetizers and desserts as ell ad a full bar . Never had a meal we didn't love."

  • "This was a great find. Our group loves Italian food and it was superb. The sampler platter hors d'oeurve was a great start. Took care of us with an 18-month old child!"

  • "The food was average, but nothing I would eat again. The prices were really good, but no one at my table loved their meal. Service was moderate, but the food took over an hour to come out and they weren't even very busy. Everyone in there was extremely nice though. Not bad, but wouldn't return."

  • "The food was ok, nothing special. But the biggest issue was that they wouldn't split the check up. We had a large group and this made it more difficult than it should be."

  • "They had no idea how to use my Capitol Deal. I called ahead twice before I arrived and they kept putting the onus on me to figure it out. They did not try to help me or be customr conscious. The brunch was nothing special. Blueberry pancakes were made with a mix and did not have fresh fruit in it. There was a cheap melon mix on the side."

  • "I've been to Odeon many times and found the service to be consistently fantastic. The food is always tasty and presented attractively. This is a great "go to" Italian place like a favorite bottle of wine."

  • "Have eaten at Odeon Cafe for years and been to Italy several times. It's always consistent, very comfortable, has the feel of an Italian bistro. Very welcoming staff who go out of their way to make sure you enjoy the experience."

  • "The food is always even a little better than you remembered, and they treat you very well. It's lively and fun, but not overly so."

  • "My friends and I purchased a Capitol Deal for a brunch entree and bottomless drinks. We arrived too late for our original reservation and our server suggested we come back the next day so we could have the full experience. She gave us complimentary bellinis anyway. We did return the next day for brunch which was delicious. The atmosphere was great for conversation because the place wasn't crowded or busy. Service was excellent. Our server made sure our glasses were always full. Overall, great."

  • "Food was not worth rhe price. We ordered garlic bread which although was reasonable at $2.95 they give you only 3 slices Of toasted bread and there were 4 of us. It was served with a cilantro oil -- not what I expected . Our entrees were just ok --- and we should have skipped dessert - waste of money. Even with coupon it was not worth the price"

  • "This restaurant has a nice ambience and is nice for brunch. Their food is good - nothing jaw-dropping but if you're looking for good breakfast food, this place has it at a reasonable price. Their brunch drinks (mimosas, bellinis & bloody marys) are also very cheap (~$3 each). The service was great - We had a reservation at 12:30 on a Sunday and asked that we could watch the Redskins game, and the staff were happy to seat us at a table with a clear view of the TVs and changed them both to the game for us."
