A word from Cashion's Eat Place
When New York Times writer Jan Benzel described the ambiance at Cashion’s Eat Place in 1997 as “funky-elegant,” she was right on the money. That combination, a just-right mixture of laid-back neighborhood conviviality and serious (and seriously good) food, has defined Cashion’s since it opened in 1995. Even now, over a decade after it first welcomed diners, the restaurant remains true to its roots, serving interesting and fresh food in a relaxed way. For the past 18 years, Cashion’s Eat Place has combined refinement and relaxation better than anyone else.

    too many of the dishes had a strange twist that did not appeal to me. for example,many of the appetizers had a duck egg or organ meats which I do not like. I am not very adventurous with food. It was a special occasion. It isn't a restaurant for me.

    Casion's has had a re-birth since the long-time Chef took over the kitchen and a young enterprising recent college grad took over the front of the house from the previous manager. The food is consistently superb and the service is spectacular.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/13/2008
    Food was okay, I expected to be blown away based on "word of mouth" and reviews I have seen. I wasn't. Waiter was terrible, he had a table of 6 who were doing a full dinner with wine so he didn't have much time for us. He was slow, not very friendly and offered no help with what can be described as a complex menu. He response to the question "which would you recommend, the tuna or the pork?" was "whichever you like". Thanks for the tip a*^hole. Anywho, great interior, main course was good, appetizers were shaky (squid and a salad). Salad looked liked I threw it together at home and did nothing for us. Not what you would expect out of a $10-12 salad. The pump-ups were so good that I will probably give it another shot

    Consistently great food in a cozy neighborhood restaurant. The service is always wonderful. My wife made a special request through Open Table and we it was accommodated flawlessly. We have never been disappointed with this restaurant and are happy to find it now on Open Table. It receives our very highest recommendation. It is our favorite restaurant in the DC metro area. It delivers great food and great service every time.

    Another nice dinner at Cashion's--though the time between our salad and main courses was rather long. Also, the server was a little too hands on with her interst in how we were enjoying our meal. She actually asked my dining companion whether she had gotten to a specific flavor in the rissotto! Aside from that silliness, like I said, another nice (not spectacular, not great) meal at Cashion's.

    We love Cashions! Try to eat there at least once per month, coming from Alexandria. The transition has gone well. Staff was very helpful when I lost an earring there a few months ago. In addition to the food, kudos to Susan who waited on us on Saturda, and to the very nice man (I forget his name) who helps with valet parking, clears plates, etc. Our only concern is not being able to have our car parked if the small lot fills up. Thanks, Peggy Morrison-Curtis

    Always a very memorable experience. I have eaten at Cashions off and on for nine years and whenever I am back in DC I try to eat there. Cashions can be characterized as sophisticated funky. Regulars generally outnumber first timers which bespeaks much. The menu changes everyday and should sate the most demanding palate.

    A waiter/waitress can make or break your evening. Although the place is small, we found ourselves without help when we needed it (like getting some spoons so we could eat our dessert). I like someone that can give helpful suggestions from an unfamiliar menu, yet our waitress tried to be overly descriptive without saying anything very substantial. The food was good- but nothing to write home about. Overall it was an OK experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/6/2008
    Our dining experience left us greatly disappointed. The food was not accurately described when the waitress was asked, resulting in curiosity of what we had received. The pace of the service was very slow and not particularly attentive. TWO of the entrees were unavailable by as early as 7:30 in the evening. This has happened multiple times. One item selling out is excusable, but two, out of perhaps a total of 8 main courses is 20 percent of the total choices. This is especially a nuisance when the order has been placed and the table has been waiting and has made other menu choices to complement the selection of the main course. Should the diner be required to change his or her entire order? Lastly, it took TOO long to pay.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/29/2008
    We had reservations for 8:30 pm and were seated at 9:15 pm. The staff did apologize and we were offered some small appetizer, but still. The appetizers were of great quality; the main dishes were fair to good. I loved the ambiance; great atmosphere. However, the tables were way, way too close together; my neighbors commented on my dish - they just leaned over a bit and took a peak. They also could completely follow our conversation. There is no privacy at all when dining. I loved the bar and the bartender was superb.

    Dined on 3/28/2008
    We had a really good service during the whole dinner. We know about the prestigious of the chef in DC (that is the reason why we decided to go there), but it did not work out well. We had an appetizer (Goat chesse with croutons or some like that), which it was not bad, although it was hard find the taste of the goat cheese. It was accompanied by only 3 pieces of croutons. Then, my wife ordered a bison, and we specially emphasized that she wanted the meat just rare cooked. Well, it came well-done. So, she gave the meat back, and the second time, it came medium-rare, so we just took it, otherwise, we were not be able to enjoy our dinner. The potatoes with the bison were awful. The best thing was the ice-cream.

    We dined here during restaurant week last year. It must have been an off night or maybe the dinner rush had cleared out as the outdoor space was virtually empty! We were seated outside immediately. I noted I was vegetarian in the reservation - the waitress noted each of the veg options for me and made recommendations. Although I don't remember specifically what my husband and I ate, I do remember that her recommendations were wonderful for both the food and the wine. Overall a pleasure to dine here; we plan to return.
