  • Not Worth the Hype
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    After much anticipation I finally checked out Table with my girlfriend. We had heard many good things and were looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately, it fell far short of expectations. They were unable to keep our reservation. I understand these things can happen, but do expect something to make up for the inconvenience, we were not offered as much as an apology. The food is good but nothing special. I expected to be wowed but was left unimpressed. The beer service was pretty bad. I'm not qualified to comment on the wine offerings. The service was mediocre. Not outright bad, but not good either. Overall I can't reccomend it. Nothing to distinguish it from the many places in DC with similar concepts.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 5/19/2013
    We arrived on time for our RSVP but waited 10 minutes to be seated. They offered us coffee which was nice. While our server was very pleasant, she was not very attentive. We received bread (delicious) about 15-20 minutes after we ordered, and we were never offered a second helping while we waited endlessly for our food. It took 50 minutes from the time we were seated to receive our first course of food and we got a coffee refill only once during the wait. The preparation, portion size, & taste of the food was quite good, but my short ribs were beyond fatty & I'm not generally picky about fat. We noticed a neighboring patron had an issue about her food & she had to get up because she was tired of waiting. Hoping to give it a 2nd try.

    We had a great time at table! Beeing from Europe I can tellI - it really has this european touch. Beautiful, simple furniture, delicious food and - I highly appreciate the possibility to have a conversation there as a larger group! At most of the -some also good american Restaurants- this is not possible because of the annoying high acoustic level. Will have brunch/dinner at table again!

    This was my first time at Table and I was nervous because the people I brought arent ones who usually like to step out their culinary comfort zone. We had a large group so they put us on the patio, which was awesome. Gorgeous night to be dining outside. Our waiter was on point. Offering suggestions, making recommendations, very attentive, and really just overall great customer service. The menu changes seasonally but I will say that everybody enjoyed their meals. We had a wide variety of dishes so we pretty much got to taste all of the menu. I will definitely be back and I can't wait to try his new Italian restaurant, Azur!

    I went here for dinner and the place was "fine". I wouldn't suggest it to a friend. It's just another new spot that kind of has nothing memorable about it and is pretty pricey for the quality of food and level of attitude. Again, nothing bad except the fact that everything was just ok. I don't spend my money on "ok" especially at those prices.

    Upon arrival, to a reservation I had made a month in advance, i was told we would be at a communal table on the second floor...when i inquired as to why, when there were clearly two 2 tops available on the first floor, she said they were overbooked and that we would love the communal table. We walked upstairs and she tried to seat us at a four top that already had two people dining at it...seriously. When i said this was not acceptable ( to the delight of the other diners at the table as well).she told us to wait. She came back 5 minutes later and took us downstairs to the table in the corner. For the rest of the night the service was mediocore at best. On a positive note, the food was spectacular.

    I enjoy a good meal out, have worked in the industry, and work alongside the industry now. I'll admit, I like to think I've got a decent eye for a well-run restaurant. Table had many mixed reviews on yelp but I have to say I stand by my 5 stars across the board. Modern aesthetic, terrific vibe, knowledgeable yet warm and relatable staff, and truly extraordinary food. It's clear that the menus are assembled with great intention, experience, and skill. Brunch was a pre-fixe menu, and on the pricey side, but well worth it for a special occasion. I would feel comfortable recommending Table to chefs, hip execs, and fellow food lovers.

    I would absolutely recommend you check out Table, but not for brunch. The restaurant itself was excellent: interesting decor, delicious food; but $34 for a prix fix brunch (two dishes with no beverages included) was not quite the value we were looking for. I would absolutely try Table for dinner where the menu offers a little more choice. The service was okay, but I'm sure they are still trying to work out some kinks since the restaurant are still relatively new.

    Really great and creative food and drink, awesome atmosphere, but there are many service kinks yet to be worked out. Our waiter was brusque and on the verge of being rude. Cared more about socializing with a table of 8 next to us than paying attention to us. Was annoyed if we weren't ready to order when he wanted us to. Actually rolled his eyes when we asked for a split check. If they can fix the service-related issues, this would be a really cool place to eat.

    Dined on 5/3/2013
    I had high expectations of table and maybe that ruined it for me. It is small, there is nowhere to sit as you wait. Maybe there is some charm to that, but waiting on your feet in the walkway is taxing when you're hungry. All tables are really close to one another so be prepared to dine with your new found friends to your left and right. And if you're not social, that may make for an awkward experience, same goes for if you have a tendency to talk to loud or about your personal life. They were out of half the menu and that is no exaggeration. I wanted the steak but it was sold out. The sea bass was sold out. The veal was sold out. The substitute fish for the sea bass was way too oily. The substitute beef cut was good, not amazing. Just ok.

    Went to Table recently to see what all of the hype was about & honestly came away disappointed. The hostess was rude upon arrival, not greeting my date and I but asking immediately "do you have reservations?" reasonably early, mid-week (we did). When we were seated, it took legitimately 20 minutes for us to see our server, who was hurried all evening. The tables are packed pretty tightly together which would be fine for a French Brasserie but seemed claustrophobic for what appears to be a converted row home. As for the food - the chef's did a great job on presentation but for upwards of $40 for a very basic steak with a lot of fat on it, I felt quite overpriced. If you're looking to spend $150+ for dinner and wine for two, go elsewhere.

    Loved the atmosphere. I dined downstairs for dinner last time I came and food was excellent. So I had to come back second time to try their brunch menu. This time we dined upstairs and sat outside, which I didn't even know they had outdoor seating area. The brunch menu didn't impress me too much and found it was a bit expensive for what they do have. Still, I love their concept - handwritten menu in composition book and minimalistic dining furniture and seasonal food items. Ordered the duck salad and beef short rib, which I thought was pretty good. I would come back just for the ambiance.

    There is a meatpacking district NYC something about it. I am happy with the restaurant and think it's a good addition to the city: the location, the fun looks, and the vibrant feel. Yet, I'm not sure what the furor over the food because it was just ok--and frankly thought it was a bit overpriced for the quality. Certainly was not the diminutive wine list and the uninformed "wine experts." A solid B.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/27/2013
    I've been for dinner twice, which is outstanding. This was my first brunch experience and it was a good one, however I have one simple complaint: the price for the prix fixe brunch was exorbitant. $34 and that doesn't include juice or mimosas, etc... I understand they use top quality ingredients you can taste and appreciate, but $34 for 3 oz of yogurt, 3 tiny patties and a small pot of baked eggs is just too much. Even $28 would have felt less painful, but really $24 is appropriate. We didn't even order drinks beyond our tiny coffee cups but you can imagine how quickly expensive this could have been if we had. I'm only hoping they reconsider the prix fixe price, or let you order al la carte so that we can enjoy this more often.

    I was very excited to try Table, but that excitement quickly disappeared. One of the wines our waiter recommended was not good. Two appetizers arrived lukewarm, and the third had the wrong charcuterie on it. Our entrees took at least one hour to arrive, while the table next to us (seated AFTER us) was already eating dessert. No explanation from our waiter, in fact he went missing for a while, and WE had to ask HIM what was going on. We got some lame excuse about them just opening the patio, making them very busy (there were only 2 parties seated there!). The entrees finally did arrive - COLD and unappetizing. Needless to say, we passed on dessert because who knows how long that would have taken. Not sure if I would return.

    Open kitchen and modern industrial feel with an open front wall, along with constant high activity provides a vibrant atmosphere. The food was expertly prepared and presented. Plenty of wine choices at all price ranges. Extensive beer and non-alcoholic beverages. They must have a pastry chef based on the dessert quality. Service was knowledgeable and attentive, as well as it seemed like we had 2 or 3 waiters, as which ever was closest would help you. Great evening and a really relaxed and fun time.

    We had reservations for four at 730 pm. We were not seated until 8pm, and there was nowhere to sit down while we waited. The noise was deafening. The food was very spotty, a real disappointment after the big hype. It was supposed to be Belgian but it wasn't. The food took a long time to arrive. My dish was small in quantity at $32.00 (and I don't have a big appetite). I left feeling unsatisfied and will not go back or recommend it.

    This was one of the best dining experiences I have yet to have in DC. If you go with just two people, make sure to make a reservation and specify that you want a kitchen side table. You are seated right next to either the chef or the sous chef and can watch and talk to them as they prepare all of the amazing dishes. Unlike most chefs/kitchens, the chefs at Table are friendly and warm; it is clear that they are really proud of the food they put in front of you, as they should be.

    I went for opening brunch and had pretty high hopes for this place. The restaurant is gorgeous, really nice space and well decorated. Nice open kitchen, bright and airy feel. But the food was just good, not exceptional. The duck salad was a tad too salty, the buckwheat crepes needed something to bring them together and the eggs en cocotte was delicious on the bottom but dry and overdone on the top. Everything was good but just slightly off. The service was a bit lackadaisical and not super attentive but again not bad.

    I made a reservation here to treat my mother, visiting from Arizona, to a nice dinner. I was extremely disappointed after hearing so many good things about Table. I had made a reservation for a party of three. On our way up to our table, the hostess mentioned there was another couple sitting at our table, but they had a finished their meal and would be gone soon. The vitriolic couple sat there for the next twenty minutes shouting at each other about various political topics and while heated debate is great, we did not appreciate being forced to share in the experience. For $60-$100 diners should get their own table. Additionally, we were seated at the table closest to the busing area, which seemed to be design to make customers perfor

    I do not understand the buzz. This was our second, and last, visit. There seemed to be an age bias when it came to seating folks--those of us older (with reservations) were told to wait until the full party was there whereasmid-twenties types were seated when only one person was there. The seats are dreadful. The vent system is not working as well as it was on the first visit (and the fish is pungent). The menu concept is cute (curlicue handwriting in pencil in "school books"), but dificult to read in the best of light, and there is not the best of light. Even when you can read the menu, it does not necessarily provide you with enough information to make an informed choice. But one goes for the food. Salt lovers, by all means go.
