We were a group of 10 including a 5-year-old wanting a place to meet after a matinee performance at Studio Theater. Logan Tavern was close to perfect. They seated us in a relatively quiet corner. The food was quite good. The ginger fried calamari is excellent. Burgers are very good; crab cakes are as good as any. We had some "veggie people" and one vegan (I only just now learned what that is) and they were also pleased. We'll go back if we get an opportunity.

never had a bad meal there, and spend at least one night there any time I am in DC.

Will not disappoint!
My husband found a review on Open Table for Logan Tavern, and decided to make a reservation for dinner with friends after the Pride Parade. Logan Tavern was along the parade route, and while outside the outside was hopping, inside was cool as a cucumber. The bar was full, but that helped create a lively ambiance. The rest of the restaurant is candle lit and romantic. There are a couple of large tables by the bar for large parties of 8-10 and booths along the walls for parties of 2-4. The calamari was delicious and the watermelon cocktail was awesome! The menu isn't long and overwhelming, but it has a nice variety that will please just about everyone. We will definitely be back for a date night!

We held a surprise party for a graduation in the adjacent/back room. The staff was super friendly and accommodating.
I felt the food was overpriced and mediocre compared to sister restaurant, Grillfish.

Lovely neighborhood Gem
Great dining experience. Ben was the perfect waiter; very attentive and knowledgeable about menu and neighborhood. Would definitely return.

Logan Tavern is Back!
Ah, one of my favorite restaurants for years was Logan Tavern, but then it hit a bump in the road - something seemed to go off a bit, the service and flavors were not what it was, but alas, it is back! I have been there three times in a row and have had very good service and consistently good food. Trust me, it was never bad, but with so many places to go and spend your dollar, it is great to see that Logan Tavern is back to being the Hot Spot it deserves to be. Between their selections of flavorful foods and great service, it is not to be missed, whether for a fun lunch with friends or a great night out - and then of course there is Brunch - yes, get there soon - you will not be disappointed - and now, neither am I.

Large Birthday Crowd
I had made reservations for 17 people for a birthday dinner, this past friday (6/17) at 7:30. I had called multiple times beforehand to add more to my party. The people I spoke with on the phone were always so polite and helpful. During the time of our reservation half of my party show up 40 minutes late and the hostess and our waitress were so great and willing to work with us, even though members of my party had held everything up. Our waitress was amazing and recommended wonderful appetizers and entres. She handled our large crowd great and never showed being overwhelmed or anything. We had to do separate checks and she handled that great as well. She did a wondeful job and should be told so.

Just what we needed
We had a table for 12 in the bar area before going to a Dwight Yoakam concert at the 930 club. location was fairly convenient (cabbed easily over to 930 afterward), food & service were great & atmosphere for a group of friends to hang out before a concert was perfect! Had lots of fun and will be back. Menu is perfect for casual dining - much better than a "burger joint."

great before theater
This is a great spot before theater. We let our waitress know we were on our way to the theater and things moved along but we never felt rushed. Nice choice of food for everyone. The room next to the bar is a better choice if you want to have a conversation.

Good pre-theater dinner spot
Had a delicious meal before going to Studio Theater. Salmon entree was cooked rare per my request with generous portions of tasty vegs. There were enough choices for a non meat-eater.

Freshly Sourced Means Something
Logan Tavern might be a run of the mill neighborhood restaurant, but for the fact that everything seems to taste better here than in similar casual but fairly expensive Bethesda restaurants such as Redwood, Food Wine, and Redwood. Let's chalk the differences up to "freshly sourced ingredients" carefully chosen and prepared. Portions are large.

Neighborhood favorite delivers
Always happy to dine here. Great service, food and ambiance. When the weather cooperates, outside seating provides great people watching time.
Loved a new appetizer on the menu, chilled cucumber soup. The chef (only there 3 weeks) came by the table to describe the recipe. We welcomed him and shared that we hope that he's with the restaurant for a long, long time!
7/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
went for after dinner...
drinks and desert. Great way to end the night. They were busy so we lucked out and were seated outside. great time.
7/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
We came for drinks and desserts and fully enjoyed our evening. Will go back for dinner.

Logan's Tavern - Great Dinner Spot
Great dinner choice if headed to the Studio Theater.
Parmesan Grits are outstanding!

Everything U want for Fri night
Logan Tavern offers fresh and healthy food, as well as fresh and fried, friendly service, very reasonable prices (especially happy hour), and great convenience to Studio, and an outdoor location perfect for urban people watching, We had salads, mussels, a burger and taquitos, which were all very well prepared and generously portions. The wine and beer were ok, and the mixed drinks were strong. Our waitress Rachel was charming and knowledgable. This is our second visit to Logan and we are amazed each time by the unexpected emphasis on fresh foods they grow on their own farm. They were very responsive to our dietary questions and preferences. This is our go-to place now for pre-theater dinner in this amazing neighborhood.

Dinner for 10
We celebrated my husbands 30th birthday here. Service was great and everyone enjoyed their food. The appetizers and salads were all good. I especially love the bacon wrapped dates here. My husband enjoyed the wedge salad. Friends commented that the pork was amazing, while the fish dish was undercooked and bland. My husband and a few other guests got the steak with potatoes, however the potatoes were undercooked. Our wonderful waitress quickly brought out some new potatoes, but they were still undercooked. Besides those few issues everyone seemed to enjoy their meals!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for the first time and received excellent service and the food was very tasty. Would recommend.

Took a group here for my best
Took a group here for my best friend's birthday -- the food was delicious, highly recommend the calamari, bacon wrapped meatloaf, and chicken wings! The service was truly spectacular. Not only did our waitress ask about food allergies (my friend is allergic to peanuts), but because we just mentioned quickly that it was her birthday, the waitress brought out the most amazing red velvet cheesecake (peanut free of course) with a sparkler at the end of our meal! We didn't have to ask or plan, and it was so delicious we couldn't believe it was complimentary. Finally, she was attentive enough to split our bill, making sure our friend didn't pay for her dinner and that we all had the appropriate entrees/apps/drinks charged. Will definitely return!

Logan Circle Favorite
Being in a mood for southern fried chicken, the meal pleased greatly. Fine service. New chef on board with a great soup added to the menu. When we shared a complement with the wait staff, the new chef came over and shared the recipe. Love iving in and dining in Logan Circle.
8/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
They went out of their way
The menu at Logan Tavern is eclectic and creative, but also very well implemented by the chef. We were meeting friends from Antigua. Our reservation for 8 was at 7:00 and we were driving from Baltimore. But, just as we were leaving Baltimore for the one hour drive, the skies opened up, causing the usually one hour drive to take two. When we finally arrived, our guests had been seated at the prime table I requested on Open Table and been made to feel very comfortable while enjoying the energetic street scene. While most restaurants might have had two out of 8 people wait at the bar, they recognized that our guests were not from DC and needed to be made comfortable.

Good food, good cause
Dined there for the City Dogs Rescue fundraiser. Food was delicious and our server was fantastic. We had a great time.

Logan Tavern hosted a Dining
Logan Tavern hosted a Dining Out Event for City Dogs Rescue and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and it was BUSY! The food was great and it's just a perfect spot for casual, neighborhood dinners!

Relaxing night with Friends
started at the bar waiting for friends and we all had great service and drinks. Wings and salad ere the choices for starters as we moved to the table. Dinner was Mai mai, eggplant sandwich and lamb burger. This is one of my fav places and its always good all around.
8/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
the opposite of horror
dinner before seeing rocky horror at studio - perfect! food and service topnotch. we'll be back
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for an easy night out
We have never gone wrong at Logan Tavern. It is consistently welcoming and comfortable with great adaptations to classic dishes like Meatloaf and Caesar Salad. Their drink list is great and we have gone there a few times just to sit at the bar and get an appetizer. I would recommend the Logan 75. The Mac and Cheese is amazing and you never need to order more than the side portion. Most importantly, the wait staff and front desk are really helpful and very aware of dietary restrictions- they will help you adjust any meal to fit those needs. Our waitress Katie was incredibly nice and made sure to be attentive but not annoying which is harder said than done. We will definitely be back!

A great local restaurant with moderate prices and wonderful ambiance. Menu is varied and everyone can find good options. Great place for group or family. Plus Logan Circle is a great location to visit.

In DC for the weekend dropping
In DC for the weekend dropping our son to college. Chose Logan Tavern because of the menu on line. 2 Adults, 3 teens. We will definitely return on future trips. Best Calamari we have had in a long time.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great outdoor people watching
Service may get spotty when busy but overall a great experience.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must go to restaurant
We are from Pennsylvania, but frequent come to DC. We love Logan Tavern and eat there frequently. This time, rather than a full dinner, we were in the mood for burgers. They were awesome and cooked just as we requested. We've also been there for brunch, and love this restaurant from morning till night!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Solid restaurant in vibrant hood
It's a nice place with outdoor seating, good light and sizable inside. Service is basic, but totally fine. They don't rush you to leave which is nice. Have been there twice, but only for brunch. They have a nice menu and the neighbor hood is vibrant and growing. Would recommend it for a group looking for a nice brunch.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I selected to dine here for brunch because it was conveniently located and the menu looked good. I like that it is in a thriving neighborhood but not situated in a way a that is overwhelmingly congested. The menu had a decent variety, and I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor of the food and a unique French Toast topping. There a a decent sized bar & a small outdoor seating area. I chose to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Good lunch spot
Friend and I wanted to try somewhere new for lunch, decided to try Logan Tavern. Food was good, service was good, we will add it tto our "list."
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently doing its job well.
Logan Tavern delivers consistently very good food and drinks in a homey, buzzing, neighborhood atmosphere. It is an excellent place to linger over drinks in the evening, and superb for pre-theatre dining. It has become, over the years, an inherent part of our theatre-going in the Logan Circle area.

Bloody Mary Menu is Great
I have never been to a place that let's you customize bloody mary options. It was rather unique and amazing. This is no doubt the work of the amazing Peter Eskra....
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great evening
Found this place as a recommendation from a friend and let me tell you it was a great find. Every where I go, I compare meals that I have had in different cities and let me tell you that this ranks right at the top with my favorite restaurant in LA. I had the Crispy Chicken Paillard, but normally with mashed potatoes. This restaurant served it with grits and it was fabulous. When I get back home, I will tell my favorite restaurant that they should try making theirs with grits.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Logan never disappoints. The food and the service are fantastic. The ginger calamari alone is worth the trip!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'd never been in for brunch before, but I will certainly be back!! I brought some family in from NY and everyone had a wonderful time! Extremely impressed with their Mighty Leaf Tea, and the pick-your-own bloody mary. Be sure to try the french toast sticks! Our server recommended them as an appetizer- they were amazing!! Thank you for a wonderful family get-together!
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a nice brunch here on Saturday and will return again!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely cafe in Logan Cicle
A very good find in one of our favorite neighborhoods, Logan Circle. The bunch menu is extensive with a few nice twists on a some classics. The crispy brussels sprouts as a starter were excellent as were the bloody mary's.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service great food
My wife and I ate hear on a Wednesdsy night. She has a food allergy that makes restaurant dining difficult. The server (Rachel) was super! She checked with the CBC who came personally to our table to describe the meal he would make.
The meal turned out as promised, good serviceable choices on a moderately priced wine list.
Thanks Logsn Tavern and Rachel!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure!
A comfortable neighborhood community experience with excellent American food choices.

Good bacon-wrapped meatloaf, nice carrot soup.
Service was a little slow to take drink order. Recovered nicely.
Cozy feel with nice sidewalk view from front tables.

Everytime we have come to Logan Tavern the good has always been spot on! You don't ever have to worry about inconsistency because you get the same great service, amazing food, and wonderful atmosphere every time you go! They are accommodating for families, so I recommend this little Logan Circle Gem to just about everyone!
