Trio of Risotto was delicious. Took a bit too long to have our drink/dinner order taken though.

Not what you remember
We went for a pre-Hockey game meal and enjoyed the food; this has gone from a high-end steakhouse to a place for good, reasonably priced appetizes, salads, burgers and beers. The service was a bit scattered (particularly since we were one of only four tables in the restaurant.

This was a great oasis from
This was a great oasis from the 7th St and E St NW eateries in WDC. It's just a block away but the difference is enormous. We'll be back - the food was very good; nice drinks menu - fun but not too complicated. Service was overall prompt, but one server was helpful with food and drinks tips, and another ("we work as a team") was not. A response such as "All the beers / wines / appretizers / desserts are good" is not enlightening or engaging.

Worth going back......
I had lunch there once many years ago but had not been back after the name had changed. But, we really enjoyed it. Food was wonderful and service was very good. I would go back again.

Social reform in April 2013
Nice place to get a bite to eat prior to a show at Fords theatre. Offered discount on parking which was an added bonus. Nutty Irishman for after dinner drink is fabulous!

We were a little late arriving
We were a little late arriving for our dinner reservation and had to be at a show in an hour. Our waiter understood our predicament and did his best to get us served quickly. Food was fantastic. We had a few drinks with dinner so our bill was rather expensive. But it is always a treat to come here.

Big & Juicy Burgersa
We had lunch at Social Reform before a Matinee at Ford's theater. They had a good business crowd and service was very accommodating. We had the burgers - big, juicy, quality meat, and messy! I had to ask for an extra napkin. That is a good thing when you eat burgers. It was nice to have the salad substitute rather than potatoes. It was more than we could eat, so we did not have dessert.

Service was great at first,
Service was great at first, had a blip of 45 minutes where we were ignored, and then he came back and all was good. There weren't a whole lot of people there for a Saturday night, so I don't know why he was so scarce for a while.
Regardless, food was wonderful and the beer selection is pretty darn good.

Great Night Out
Our party of 6 had wide and varied requirements that the new menu satisfied. From salads to sandwiches to meals to desserts, all enjoyed their food choices. The dessert sampler of sorbets & gelatos was excellent! The service provided by Cooper was great as well as relaxed and fun. The staff even went out on the street to hail a cab for one of our party and did not give up until a cab stopped. Everyone enjoyed the evening very much! I will go back!

Staff was great. Bartender
Staff was great. Bartender makes a great Old-fashioned, which I hold as a barometer for a bar program... Burger was delicious. Bar crowd is non-existent after happy hour, definitely better to visit Mon-Thurs if you're feeling social...

Out of town visit
While visiting DC we had dinner before attending a musical at the Ford Theater. The proximity was one of the reasons we chose The Caucus Room. Great service, and wonderful ambience, although my steak was over cooked it was still edible and my guests loved their dinners. When in DC again I would definitely go back again.

A Great Find
We came to Social Reform on March 19 because it was on the "recommended" list for Ford's Theater. We have been back three times since. It is a great location; easy to get a reservation, good service, good food -- and a great bar. My husband is especially impressed with the martinis.
My only complaint is that is difficult to remember the name of the restaurant. I keep going back to the Ford's Theater website to find the link.

Great lunch venue
Excellent atmosphere for a lovely lunch. Excellent food and there is something for everyone. Good for taking guests.

I planned this for a work dinner. They were very accommodating as I had to alter the reservation a few times and once we arrived were very attentive. We had our own room, took our time and they were great. I felt bad that the place was pretty dead but we really enjoyed it. The food was delicious as well. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly.

Amazing food, atmosphere lacking
One of the best meals I've had in DC in quite sometime, however, the ambiance needs to be revisited.

We all really enjoyed our dinning experience. The wait staff was helpful and very informative. Food was timed perfectly. Everything was excellent considering we made reservations only 20mins before arrival. Highly recommended to visit Social reform Kitchen (aka Caucus room).

Great for special occasions!
We visited prior to a show at the Shakespeare Theatre Company, and the entire staff was so lovely and accommodating. We were also celebrating an anniversary, and everyone was lovely - the dessert they brought was spectacular and made our evening so special! Excellent oysters, knowledgeable staff, great wine list, made for a great night. We will be sure to return!

Style and Food
This is a wonderful venue for a group lunch. Great food and drink. A little lively with clientele, yet quiet so you can discuss business as needed.

Great Business Lunch Spot
This place is always a great choice for lunch. Its dining area is seperated by "rooms" which gives it a cozy feel and lets you get that quiet type place where you can actually have a nice business lunch and hear all your guests. The menu has a wide variety of options, so it's sure to please everyone. I love their burgers, but my favorite has always been the various salads with steak which has been cooked just right. The service is also great and paced well, so you don't feel rushed. I have taken several guests there and it's always my go to place.

Good food, good service, a calm and inviting place

classic place re-done
was formally the Caucus Room (which moved to G'town). Very American-style menu. Braised ribs, seared scallops, crab cakes, a pasta, and mussels. The specialty of the house is steaks. I had a NY Strip which was cooked to perfection. the garlic green beans were fresh and had a nice snap. Also tried the short rib, which was tender but a little dry. Also tried the scallops which were perfectly cooked as well and had a dcent black rice on them. good portion of rice. Service was friendly and the MGR was fast to assist. Would eat there again, perhaps lunch. If you're in the Chinatown area, try it, bc it isn't a tourist place

I took a young person to celebrate her 22nd birthday. She was so very impressed with the restaurant and all that it offered. Our meal (the braised ribs) were delicious. They melted in our mouths. Fantastic selection. The service was very attentive. They made the birthday girl feel very special and I was most appreciated (which was reflected in my generous gratuity).
I highly recommend this restarurant for great food and especially for special occasions.

Always a pleasant experience
We had a group of eight and were able to be seated in one of the back dining areas where is was quite enough for us to hear each other talk and celebrate an anniversary. Great wine selection and the food was outstanding as always.
