Adams Morgan's Major Upgrade
Nestled toward the north end of AdMo, the newly renovated TomTom sports a much more stylish feel. Oak paneling and rustic lighting gives a much more adult vibe, and the quality of food and service matches the more sophisticated decor. I found my new go-to Adams Morgan location for great prices and quality food and drink.

Unique new spot in AdMo
Fiance and I have lived in the neighborhood for 3 years, and were excited to try out the Carriage House. Our expectations were tempered because the spot is still new, not yet crowded (except outdoor) and the sign out front doesn't really draw you in. However, inside the space is really nice, the exposed brick warms up the place.
Servers were sharp and attentive, food was great. Unique on the 18th street offering "american" fare but decently healthy. My fiance is a vegetarian and she found many choices. We had the carriage spread (very good), she had the carriage salad (loved it) and I got the brick oven chicken, delicious.
Definitely check it out. A great new addition to the block for an affordable but "grown up" Adams Morgan dinner.

Great food, friendly staff
Went with some friends and had a great dinner. When I booked the reservation did know it was a bar but staff was really accommodating, made chicken fingers for our friends kids.
Next time we are near here, we will definitely stop in again.

Not only was the food delish, but the service was great! And it didnt hurt that our waiter was a cutie... Lol! Great space for large groups. The owner came and chatted with us. I really loved this place and would def go back.

A definite Neighborhood GEM!!!
I've been to the Carriage House twice now and every experience just got better each time. They have great selections on their menu like twice cooked calamari which is flash-fried with cherry peppers and lightly sautéed in a spicy cherry pepper sauce (this has just the right tinge of heat to whet your appetite) , crab cake sliders, grilled beef skewers, crab and avocado salad with spicy pasilla vinaigrette, bacon wrapped shrimps on a bed of risotto with fresh corn, maple glazed pork tenderloin and the rib eye we ordered was perfectly grilled to the right temperature. I'm looking forward to tasting other items on their menu (their home made brick oven gourmet pizza for sure) during my next visit to Adams Morgan!

Great Food and Atmosphere But...
Great place to go and share a number of great dishes...beer selection is pretty great too. I would NOT recommend the crab cakes though. They are very bready and mayonaisy.
