I'll be back soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch spot in Cleveland ParkPulp is a wonderful neighborhood brunch spot in Cleveland Park, DC. The patatas bravas, chorizo frittata and salmon crostini were especially delicious. The bottomless mimosas included in the prize frixe brunch is added bonus. I'll definitely be returning.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBridal Brunch - Beautiful!I made brunch reservations for a group of friends celebrating a friend's upcoming wedding. The staff at Pulpo was SO accommodating, greeting us at the door with drinks. The manager on duty (whose name I didn't catch, but he was great) chose food for us and just kept the dishes coming, and kept our glasses full, for more than the two hours we were allotted. They were kind, attentive, but never felt like they were crowding us. If I could brunch here every weekend I would!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTapas for Two?or not, I often eat alone due to work-related travel, and dine late in the evening (pass 9:00 p.m) For me, it is early, as I am from California. This is a great restaurant that serves Spanish cuisine: tapas, small portions, almost appetizers size, and healthy. I love pulpo (octopus), so I definitely had that, plus sea scallops, delicious! The restaurant is new in the community, open only for dinner. Their store front is basic, but the ambiance makes up for it. While I was there, Spanish wine makers were dinning, offering their best wine collection, and as per their recommendations, I indulge a glass of Vino Zaco, (Tempranillo) from Rioja Spain.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch optionAt $25 for an order as much as you want in two hours with all the mimosas, bloody marys, etc. you want is a great deal. The food was good - no bad dishes. Some dishes stood out as excellent. The service was fine. When you order a bunch of small plates, you don't need constant attending.
This place can get a bit noisy when crowded but nothing impossible.
Would definitely recommend this for brunch and for other meals based on the quality of the food.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine list is notable inThe wine list is notable in that there are only five bottles under $50, so having dinner with a bottle of wine ends up being far more expensive than one expected. The food is very good and service attentive without being intrusive.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Pulpo -- asked for aLove Pulpo -- asked for a quiet table upstairs and could actually have a conversation while eating Pulpo's really interesting fare. I'm a fan!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday lunch a nice way toFriday lunch a nice way to start the weekend. Food is delicious although the tally sneaks up: $200 for five incl. tip (no drinks in that). Nice feel to the place.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for brunch lastWent here for brunch last Sunday and was very impressed! We had a 6 person party and were served very promptly and by the manager himself. We basically got to try everything on the tapas brunch menu and it was delicious as as well as the drinks were flowing! Service fabulous. (Great Bloody Mary's by the way!:D)
Definitely will make this part of the Cleveland Park Breakfast Club in the future!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Everything about this restaurant was amazing.From the food to the service and ambience. Whats more I personally didnt like a desert I ordered and the manager took it off our bill just for commenting on it. Thats great service!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived for a 6:30 reservationWe arrived for a 6:30 reservation and the bar was filled with many regulars, who stop in after work. The tapas showed the creativity of the kitchen and were not the usual ones you find in many tapas restaurants. There were a few new dishes, that had just been aded to the menu, i. e. the shrimp, and they were excellent. it is also a restaurant that can accomodate a large group, which is hard to find. I would highly recommend this restaurant.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI came here for brunch withI came here for brunch with a big party and I was very impressed with how well we were received. We were asked to wait at the bar until everyone had arrived, but they let us start our bottomless drinking right from the bar. We were seated as soon as our entire party had arrived. Then, for several hours, they brought us dish-after-dish of delicious tapas. Our drinks and our plates were never empty. $25 for bottomless food and drink is an unbeatable price, especially for food and drinks this good. The service was also spectacular. I can't say enough good things about it.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for brunchThis place was a lot of fun for brunch--different from the usual fare. The food was good--the one thing missing was a Spanish tortilla--the perfect breakfast food. It was not crowded, the service was very pleasant--a lot of fun for our large group.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience at PulpoWonderful experience at Pulpo last weekend. They were just rolling out a new menu for spring and we were happy to be one of the first to try it. The food was delicious and the service was attentive but not overbearing. Stand out dishes were the brussel sprouts, eggplant terrine, flat iron steak, and whole prawns. The curry sauce the prawns were in was amazing. They could serve that with just a side of bread and I would have been happy. Nice selection of wine and beer and the specialty cocktails looked great. We were just drinking wine but I will be back for sure to try some of the drinks. Another thing to note was even though the place was packed, every table full and a booming bar, it was not too loud. Great vibe and energy!!!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCleveland Park gem for tapasDelicious tapas, which is my preferred way of eating. Love the brussels sprouts with bacon, mac 'n cheese with serrano ham, mushroom bruschetta. Service is attentive and I love having my water glass refilled without asking. Cocktails are inventive and seasonal, wine and beer options plentiful. The bar is busy during happy hour and is a great option to a table.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
