Stopped there for dinner before
Stopped there for dinner before a lecture at the Carnegie Institution of Washington across the street and down a block. Arrived about 5:30PM on a Tuesday night and found not much of a crowd, nor much noise. Server was excellent--graciously accommodated a request for table change (to the lounge area, for happy hour) and a small menu substitution, served beverages and food promptly, and processed the check promptly when so requested. Veggie burger was significantly larger than the bun upon which it was served, and came with a small leaf of lettuce and a small slice of tomato, but tasted pretty good. Caesar salad with anchovies was tasty, as was my selection from what's on tap. Enjoyed the free (but slow) WiFi while waiting for food.

Server was wonderful, even asked (after ordering) if there were any allergies to be aware of. My go-to spot for casual client lunches in that area.

Good food at good prices
The Commissary, like its sibling, Logan Tavern, is a great place for a casual dinner. We usually stop by before going to the Studio Theater. The restaurant can be noisy, so an outdoors table is best if you want to spend time conversing.

The atmosphere is great. The noise level is perfect and the lighting is really warm without it being too romantic or sleepy. I tried mac and cheese and the veggie burger, both were delicious. Drinks were excellent, they have a great list. Dessert- wasn't too impressed with the brownie sundae honestly but the ginger cheesecake was great.

The food was simple, but it was good and comforting. Great options for everyone.

The food is fresh and delicious! Try the housemade veggie burger--it's amazing!

I really enjoyed dinner at the Commissary! They had a decent list of craft beer, the food was delicious, and the prices moderate. Service was friendly, helpful, and well instructed about the various dishes available. I'll make it more regular for dinner!

Reliable neighborhood restaurant
Commissary's a very steady neighborhood restaurant: good to great food, fresh and interesting, not too expensive, and a range of choices on the menu for both heavy and light eaters. It opens early and stays open late, is suitable for everything from breakfast to a late-night nosh, and has competent bartenders and friendly waitstaff. There are some comfy chairs for people who want to lounge (and they don't mind), but if you want a serious meal, the food can be quite good. I've eaten here more times in the past couple of years than at any other restaurant in DC.

Food was good, but...
This is my second visit to Commissary. The food is good and the decor is really nice. However, I ordered two different mixed drinks (a watermelon margarita and a southern lady) and both were seriously watered down. I don't drink hard liquor often and I didn't feel a thing from two drinks? Next time, I will stick with beer.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Casual but nice atmosphere. Goos lighting. Good healthy & vegetarian options. Friendly service.
Horrible sound system which at least was turned low.

Great food and drinks
The menu has a lot of options at very reasonable prices. I got the short rib grilled cheese and it was awesome. others in the group really liked the pizza. Definitely is a cool spot to hang out and have dinner/drinks.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
We'll go again!
Went with a group of nine and had a GREAT time! Dishes are larger than tapas and smaller than entree size -- perfect for sharing. There's not a thing I wouldn't order again! And we sampled at least half of the menu. Outstanding: brisket sliders, green papaya ssalad, roasted brussel sprouts, quinoa salad, brie and peach salad, blackened catfish sliders, tuna tartare. Had a great waitress, very attentive. Why are there not more people here??!

Really great place
The food was good. Bar selection was good. Overall a great dinner for 3 friends catching up. I highly recommend.

Dependable food and fair prices
I always like the Commissary. The space is pleasant and -- usually -- not so noisey that you can't talk to your dinner companion. The menu is a sort of odd collection of offerings, but everythng I have had is prepared well. Also important, the prices are fair and reasonable.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always A Great Pick
I've been to Commissary a couple of times and the quality is always consistent. Great food, good drinks and friendly service, without breaking the bank- a rare find in DC.

We had a great time at commissary
We had a great time at commissary for my girlfriend's birthday brunch! They were able to accommodate our group, and were very flexible when I added a person to our party the night before. The food was delicious, and everyone was ale to find something they really enjoyed! I would absolutely come back here for brunch again, and hope to stop in for dinner some day soon as well! Thank you for a delicious memorable brunch!

Great for vegans
This place is great and they had a lot of vegetarian and vegan options.

Another reliable Dinner
Like commissary a lot. Always seasonal specials and it is not too pricey for the neighborhood. Had braised brats which were fantastic. Only issue is that they squeeze you in on the patio.

good local and healthy food
good local and healthy food opposite WholeFoods. Mostly saldas, sandwiches, and burgers.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a young family there for linch. It was quiet enough so we could have conversation. Kid friendly menu for 2 and under.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Met a friend we haven't seen is about a year food was great service was great and we laughed all night long! Loved the Mac n'Cheese

Great Brunch spot in Logan
I've always been a big Logan Tavern brunch fan and wound up at Commissary this weekend for Sunday brunch.
The wait was mere minutes. The hostesses and the wait staff were incredibly friendly.
Our food was delivered promptly and everything was delicious. Both the coffee and espresso drinks were great. We ordered the potato pancakes, the egg white sandwich and the breakfast quesadilla. All were notable and we would get them again. The atmosphere was very cozy and our server did not rush us out the door. We were welcome to sit and relax and take our time which is not a guarantee with restaurants in this city.
Overall a fantastic experience. We'll surely be back.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have great food and decent (to great) service (depending on you waiter/waitress). They have great vegetarian and other food options that are always tasty. We love to bring friends to this restaurant if we are in the Logan's Circle area!

I love coming here when I visit DC. If there were an expansion to NYC, I would change my opinion about chain restaurants.

I'm not a foodie, but my meal was Very good, friend had the buffalo burger and said it was outstanding.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Commissary it is just few block away from my home, which makes me regular (a lot) there. Service is +10 in any way. Mario bartender, on the other hand is one of unique service provider. Even if you don’t him, come see him, you will love him.
Also, even in seating area you’ll be able to enjoyed happy hours with amazing service.
Thank you for great and warm welcoming any time.

Perfect before theater evening
Great to eat outside with attentive waiter, excellent food, then to walk 1/2 block to Studio Theater.

Great Neighborhood Spot
Have been to The Commissary several times now and always enjoy it. The food is great and there is always plenty to choose from at a wide range of prices and appetites. It's a nice low-key place where the servers are always cheery (and very patient with indecisive people!). The whole EatWellDC group of restaurants always seems to get it right. This is a great place to come if you're just looking for a dinner or a lunch out with friends in Logan/14th Street and not looking to shell out the area's standard prices.

Perfect Casual Neighborhood Spot
I love Commissary. The menu has a little something for everyone, it has a fully stocked bar, the prices are reasonable, there's a patio, and you can either have a full-fledged meal or sit with coffee and read for hours. My favorite neighborhood restaurant.

Great Casual Dining
Had dinner there with my wife and found the food and service great. The dress was very casual.It was definitely a neighborhood eatery with a college hangout flavor. Jeans and a Hawaiian shirt was dressy! I had the braised brats and it was very good.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Casual But Good Logan Circle Eat
Has a wide variety of american and eclectic dishes on the menu including burgers (Bison!), salads, entrees, pizzas. Great variety of beer and wine as well. Went to this place on Saturday night with a group of 5 and was seated immediately which was great. Service was great as well. The chocolate chip bread pudding is awesome btw.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Comfort Food & Good Service
A group of very different diners enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the Commissary. From vegan to carnivore we had an opportunity to select from a wide range of dishes. Edamame, portabello mushroom, Thai ribs, nachos, pizza and salad all were sampled with good results.

Excellent experience at Commissary
I came here on a date, and had a great time! It helps to have a reservation. Our waiter was great, and attentive. The food was delicious! I would definitely consider dining here again.

Wonderful place for breakfast/brunc
Wonderful place for breakfast/brunch. It's best to have reservations if you're going on Sunday around 9. The place fills up fast. Food and service is top notch!! This is one of our "must do's" when in DC.

Great for groups
Our server was on point. He suggested a great Brussels sprouts starter (which while I was not a fan, the table loved.) I find this to be one of the better values for money in the city. I am never disappointed, and I always have fun when there.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really impressed with the fun menu
I really enjoy trying new combinations of food and Commissary definitelydid not disappoint! Loved the Burger Salads and the Quinoa, Veggie, Black Bean burger. The Brussels Sprouts with Peanut Sauce were amaaazing. Can't wait to go back again!

Good drinks but skip dessert
Good food and good drinks, especially the seasonal variety, but my dessert was less than desired. I think they went across the street to Whole Food for the pumpkin pie.
