Fun times with friendsI had brunch at Policy on Sunday at noon. There was hardly anyone there for some reason, and that was fine by me. My friend I did not have to shout to hear each other. She ordered bottomless mimosas and the tuna tartare. I ordered a juice mix and the steak with eggs and potatoes. All of it was very good. Every part of my meal was cooked just as I ordered it. The potatoes were the real surprise. I don't know how they make them so crispy without being greasy, but they need to keep it up! I would definitely come here again. This is now on my list of favorite places for brunch in DC.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMsurprisingly goodI wasn't expecting too much, but all in our party were generally pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Everything that we had was done wonderfully.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Happy Hour FoodWe were at Policy early, before theatre, so hard to say what the scene is like later. Food is fantastic, notables are the skirt steak, the short rib sliders and the green papaya salad. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and very good service.Good food and very good service. Good for pre-theater.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMchic diningVery hip and eclectic. Tapa style dining. Awesome flavor!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was great!I've been for brunch and drinks, but not for dinner. The food was great! It is important to go with an open mind as the dishes are very different.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodI enjoyed this place on a Friday night. I went with two others and all of us enjoyed our meals. We had the chicken, the shrimp and the ribs. The chicken fly was very juicy and tasty. I enjoyed the shrimps, they were made to perfection. No one complained about anything. I recommend the vignnets for dessert, they were light and fluffy. The creme brulee was not bad but very very tiny portion.
The service was prompt, professional and friendly.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!This was the first time I was at Policy for dinner. The food was great! Service was very good. Two of the small pates were a good dinner size. My brunch experiences have been very good but dinner was surprising. Open table did not have the time I was looking for but the restaurant was almost empty.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing (theThe food was amazing (the beignets were delicious - crispy on the outside, warm and soft on the inside, served with a wonderful creme anglaise that was not too sweet; the breakfast skillet was well seasoned without being over-seasoned, the truffle mayonnaise and arugula were a great balance on the breakfast sandwich sliders), the french press coffee and loose-leaf tea were to die for (smooth, flavorful, not bitter), the mimosas were strong, and the bloody mary's (homemade mix) had a delicious kick and were not too thick. Our waitress was fabulous, familiar, but she gave us space. Awesome brunch!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party had a most enjoyableOur party had a most enjoyable evening at Policy. The food was excellent; the service superb. Glad we had a reservation on the early side, as it did become noisier as the evening progressed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCreativity reigns at PolicyEnjoyed our recent dinner at Policy. Very interesting, well-prepared and for the most part, delicious food. The green papaya salad, mussels and short ribs were wonderful. The sauce (cream, broth and Andouille sausage) with the mussels needed more good bread for mopping up, which our server graciously provided. The short ribs -- what can I say----yummmmmy. The fried brie and peach salad and the crab cakes were good but not outstanding. The beignets were a nice finish to the meal with the fantastic French press coffee. The wines recommended by the server were perfect with the food. Just a little disconnect between the overall very nice dining experience and the atmosphere -- sports bar/retro/hip with rap music.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLimited on wines…and minimal outdoor seating. But food was unexpectedly good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food. Very inventive.Fabulous food. Very inventive. Way under-appreciated.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food I'd go backThe food was very good. I even liked the Brussels sprouts. The waiter was courteous and knowledgeable about portion sizes and food on the menu. The only issue was that my friend twice ordered a drink special and each time the waiter had to come back and let him know it was out that night.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWent on a Thursday night andWent on a Thursday night and the chef special of herb crusted chicken with mashed potatoes was like eating in a 4 star restaurant. Highly recommended.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
