    Stopped in after a reading at the Washington Stage Guild and was offered a table on the roof. Since it was well past sunset, that was less impressive than it would have been earlier in the day. Wasn't too hungry, so got the day's soup -- a delicious potato-leek -- and five items from the cold cuts/cheese selection in addition to the goose egg, which the waiter recommended. None of the meats was as outstanding as the ones I had recently at Partisan, but all were tasty. The domestic camenbert was just the right temperature. The Basque sheep's milk cheese was a little dull. The star of the evening was the goose egg. Liked the red and white wines found on the By the Glass list. I intend to return to explore the menu further.

    It feels almost like a pop-up restaurant. The waiter was quite scattered. The bass was very good, but it didn't come until after the wrong dish was delivered - delaying our entire meal (nothing was offered for the mishap). The NY strip had lots of sinew.

    The food really was great, but sadly the service was significantly lacking. Our server did her best, but the gaps in service went beyond what one person could control. The service was uncomfortably slow and there was literally something wrong with every course. Most interesting, many reviews contain similar feedback which makes me think that management doesn't know how to fix things, or simply doesn't care. The restaurant adjusted our bill (without us asking) due to all the trouble, but even this accommodation may not be enough for us to return. I share this feedback from a genuine place of wanting this restaurant to succeed, but some important changes need to be made in order for this restaurant to compete with all of the DC options.

    First time visitor to the restaurant. Really interesting decor. Looks like a furniture store on the outside so it's deceiving. Food was incredibly tasty and seasonal. I cannot wait to go back. My only gripe was the seating, we were placed next to the server station where they store the wine they were by the glass in a big tin barrel so that was incredibly distracting. I didn't want to ask to move so that is my fault and I will be more selective next time. They were out of the duck prosciutto which I really wanted to try so I'd go back just to have a taste of that honestly! Our server was accommodating and very friendly. Love that they use local items.

    Hipster town.... Great for foodie bloggers, instagramers and other yelpers ... Great food but the setting/decor/ambiance was more of a nicely painted garage than a hip restaurant, beside the fact that the open garage door was making the space particularly cold. However food was good, minus the lack of salt. The gimmicky sunchoke "ganache" was just a purée thickened and piped on the plate. Nonetheless very tasty. The large cast iron pan with the goose egg was a nice dish. But $19 for one goose egg, a little frisée and shiitake mushrooms is a bit much. The sweetbread were excellent. The prawns were quite gritty. Overall a great food experience. The service was attentive even though a bit inexperienced and young. But that's fine.

    I wasn't impressed with Table's brunch. The ambiance is great. Service was great. I am underwhelmed by their brunch menu. I've given it two chances. I'd rather spend $50 on a brunch that will leave me satisfied and full...unlike the half Chicago dog we had or the melted half scoop of lyche sorbet for dessert. Boo!!!!

    We dined on a Sunday for brunch and were struck by only being able to order a pre-fixe menu, and that the price was $35/pp. we thought: OK, maybe it will be memorable. the food portions were small but the ingredients were interesting; however, a number of items, such as the omelettes, were overcooked, and the house sweet rolls were no better than Betty Crocker makes. add to this difficulty getting our server's attention for more drinks, and it became a forgettable experience. I wish it were different, and with thought and effort the owner can make it so.

    I saw a review of Table on DCist and decided it was worth trying. So, my fiance and I went to Table during restaurant week, and we can't wait to go back for our next date night. Not only was the food delicious, the plating was so beautiful; it looked like art. The rustic and modern decor was fun and welcoming. I'd recommend asking to sit upstairs.

    This was our first time at Table and it was clearly the star of our restaurant week outings. The setting is very charming and the service warm and attentive. We ordered a good variety of dishes among the 4 of us. The presentations were beautiful and there was not a weak dish among the group. The standouts were the tiger shrimp, the beet carpaccio, and the lamb entree. Desserts were all excellent. We look forward to many future returns.

    It was restaurant week. We had a pre-fix 3 course menu which was pretty tasty albeit underwhelming in size. The wine selection is outrageous-nothing under $50 a bottle! We ordered a bottle and they brought out a different bottle. They apologized and brought ours out. Then some members of our party ordered beer which they brought out warm! The worst part was that event though our reservations were at 5:30 PM and the restaurant was almost empty, we were seated at a huge round table by the front door, kitchen, bar area and it was FREEZING. We asked to change tables twice and were told that it was restaurant week and they couldn't move us even though there were only 4 of us in the party and there were plenty of other 4 tops empty.

    We were skeptical about going in during Restaurant Week, but Table didn't disappoint. It was slightly busier, but dinner was excellent and the atmosphere just got a little more energetic (in a very pleasant way). The RW tasting menu served up some top notch, flavorful options; very pleased! Our particular waiter seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the activity but managed to provide decent service. It should be noted that -during other visits, service here is always excellent.

    My roommate and I finally made it to Table to take advantage of their restaurant week menu and were not disappointed! Starting with great selections off their wine list, we were seated at the counter to watch the action in the kitchen, which was mesmerizing. We both loved our selections, the wild boar tagliatelle being my personal favorite. The desserts were better than expected - we were a little unsure what we were getting, based off the description, but the deconstructed cheesecake with blood orange sorbet blew us away. And the ricotta donut-hole-thingies tasted like the fanciest, most tender funnel cake I've ever had - so good!

    I had made a reservation through open table for 8:15 and was informed upon arrival that my reservation was listed in the system as being at 8:45. After showing my reservation confirmation to the hostess I was told a table would be ready soon but no accommodation was made and I was not seated until after 8:45. Table does not have an adequate waiting area (either you sit in front of a drafty garage door or you're pushed up against hanging coats right by the front door, which is also drafty) so the wait for a table was unpleasant. Once seated, the food and service were top notch, but unfortunately it was a poor start to an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend.

    My first experience at Table was for Restaurant Week in winter 2014. The restaurant was serving a restaurant week menu along with a couple of items from the regular menu. My friends and I all enjoyed our meals, though we all wished the portions had been bigger. I am inclined to say that the average person needs three courses to feel full for dinner. The ambiance was chill and unpretentious. This place is definitely a simple fare sort of place. They serve wine and beer only and from what I could see after skimming through the menu, they have an interesting wine and beer list.

    We had the pleasure of sitting at one of the tables right next to the food prep area. I didn't think I would enjoy it, but it was a great learning opportunity. The chefs were more than happy to engage us with regard to questions we had. Overall, it was probably the best part of our experience - next to the ricotta fritters!

    The wine by the glass was good. I had the escargot for the first course, it was tasty, but not swimming in butter like I was expecting it to be. Second course was the venison stew, which was a little sweet, but it blended well with the other flavors in the dish. The dessert was the cheesecake mousseline, which was probably the best dessert I have ever had. It was kind of the reverse of a normal cheesecake, with most it actually being the crust.

    This is our third time at Table and our previous excellent experiences were overshadowed by our most recent experience. The restaurant lacked all the energy it previously had (and on a Saturday night too!), the service was lackluster, mediocre, and unprofessional. When asked to recommend a wine, the server recommended the most expensive one on the menu. Our food came out warm (not hot) indicating that it had been sitting around waiting for the server to pick it up. We sent two dishes back because of the temperature and, to its credit, the restaurant's manager did his best to make it up to us, which was much appreciated. But overall, the experience was disappointing. Table has lost its luster.

    We had dinner there with a couple who were visiting from the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was a great taste of American culinary flare. The food was delicious with nuanced flavors that really made each bite worthwhile. The desserts were delicate and refined. The venue was a great neighborhood choice for us and the style of the restaurant fits really well with the wave of gentrification and rehabilitation.

    For Brunch, it was a 5-course meal at Table--some of the food was excellent and some was either okay or not as exciting. Overall, good value for $35. If you are going to get a drink, would just recommend doing the bottomless brunch as most of their drinks are > $10, so it doesn't make sense to go a la carte

    Nice meal the Saturday night after New Year's. Our 7.5 year old joined three adults and the staff could not have been more accommodating and efficient. Eating upstairs was akin to the comfort of having dinner at home, but without the effort.The Pad Thai Mussels and the Coq au Vin were great and the Chocolate Bombe was a great way to end the meal. Next time I would like to try the more energetic downstairs.

    Table is on of my favorite restaurants in DC but this new year's eve they dropped the ball a little bit. While we had a great tasting menu, service was bordering on rude and the micro climate at our table next to the entrance was freezing as guests coming in frequently forgot to shut the door. We wished we had a heat lamp next to us.

    Had heard this was a fun restaurant with good food so was very happy to have gotten a reservation for New Years Eve. The sparse interior was fine to me but my boyfriend couldn't stop commenting that it looked like the whole place came out of Ikea. The menu was a set 5 courses--none of which were anything special. Food was average at best. And we barely saw our server. Since it was a fixed menu he disappeared after we choose our entree and only reappeared when we asked for the check--which he dropped off at the table and then simply walked away--no "thank you," no "happy new years." That was moment I realized my boyfriend was right and that we would never be going back. Waste of $230.

    This restaurant is just the best - the food is very creative, well executed and delicious.
