  • Meatless Monday

    Dined on 10/20/2014
    The sour-dough bread to start was warm and delicious, but the dipping oil was over salted for us. The texture-filled corn soup was creamy and full bodied but surprisingly not hot, lukewarm at best. Disappointed. The autumnal salad was delicious, small portioned. The main course, cauliflower, appeared to be served in uneven portions, some larger than others. It was expertly burnt-cooked on the edges, creating a delicious frond, with nuts. We ordered a bottle of wine but never saw the bottle at our table, instead, 4 glasses appeared filled up. Odd. Nonetheless, I applaud the chef for making a veggie offering, and hope Table continues Meatless Monday with varied menus. We'll be back (we live in the 'hood.)

    The food was fine, not great, and over-priced for the portion size/quality. It was clear that the restaurant was under staffed. Our waitress was not very service oriented, making us wait 10 min to take our order and making mistakes. People rave about this place, but I think it's just OK and over-priced for a just OK service offering.

    My husband and I decided to try the tasting menu because it was our first time at table. We were not disappointed. The meal was exquisite and i can't recall the last time I had scallops that were prepared to perfection! Not an everyday place for us due to the cost, but will go there again to celebrate a special occasion.

    Outstanding meal that just blew us away. Fresh seafood presented in a simple, clean and tasty manner. Execution of the menu was top notch. We had the lobster and fresh whole fish which were done just right and we would have them again. The corn chowder with the salmon belly was perfect. The spectacular food was complimented by the fine staff who were attentive jovial and made it a truly top notch and fun experience. We will be back.

    Everyone upstairs was complaining that it was too hot and the server responded that it was because the kitchen was downstairs directly below the dining area. We were all stripping off our clothes! Portions were very small; when I pay that much for a meal I want to leave with a full stomach! They also only had wine and beer; no full bar. Finally, the police action all night out our window view provided us with lots of live entertainment! I will call this experience a "one hit wonder". We will not be back.

    I liked every dish that I ordered. I and my boyfriend ordered mussle salad for appetitzer, 1 italian cheese, and 4 meat, it was amazing. We got duck dish and lopster for entree (I don't remember its name) they are unforgettable, duck had crispy skin and tender inside, we love duck at Le' diplomat but duck at Table makes us forget it, also lopster was not overcooked, it was perfect! However, we spent $110 for 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. It was quite expensive but we definitely come back and try new dish!!

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Table. The restaurant was not full on a Thursday evening, so the noise level was great for a quiet romantic dinner, and we had just that. The food was delicious - highly recommend the Octopus and the corn soup. The oysters were excellent as well. The appetizers were reasonably priced. But on to the main course. It was good - don't get me wrong - but the cost of the (delicious) cauliflower was way off the charts for what it was. The lamb also was a very small portion and very overpriced. The wine selection was good - but glasses of wine were expensive. Don't leave without trying the beignets - quite tasty.

    Seating is cozy - you will be close to the table next to you. The cheese and charcuterie selections were excellent, as were the first courses. The entrees were presented very well, and tasted excellent. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that of the 10 options on the menu, only 1-2 appealed to me. My fault for not checking before dining. I ordered the beef, and it was excellent. I understand that menu offerings rotate with the season, and I would plan to go again, but will check the menu before making a reservation.

    I trust Open Table for recommendations when visiting a city and looking for lunch places that are unique and rated highly. Table was a short walk from the Washington Convention Center so we decided to try. The neighborhood is under consturction and smelled less than pleasant. At noon we arrived at Table, and the down stairs dining area was dark and had delivered food sitting around. We asked to sit upstairs on the patio. Service was terrible. There was only one service person, we did not get food until at least 45 minutes after arriving. we order the pizza as a shared starer. While the taste was good, the waitress could have mentioned that the "pizza" was not a traditional pizza. Food was great, service was less than acceptable.

    Good, fairly simple food with some inventive combinations. Who would have thought of the octopus salad combination?! And the fennel ice cream was quite good with the strawberry dessert. Seating needs to be rethought, however. There are quite a few tables upstairs with only benches for chairs, No backs. This makes for progressively more uncomfortable seating as the evening continues, unless you snag a bench with a wall right behind you to use as the "chair" back.

    Excellent attentive service by the single waiter/host at lunch; accurate and imaginative descriptions of each item from the "mouthful of peaches" Sancerre to "hint of seafoam" fresh oysters and other items. The menu was imaginative, the items nicely coursed, served promptly, the food (oysters, salad, green gazpacho, fois gras mille feiulle, deconstructed pizza, beignets, passion fruit "Napolean) fresh, flavorful, beautifully constructed and served.

    I get some of the criticism about portion sizes, prices, but I am willing to live with them when the ingredients are sparkling fresh, the mix of color, texture and taste is spot on, and there is so much care in the preparation and presentation. A shared mussel salad featured perfectly cooked and sized mussels with an uni dressing, a few little necks, a sea flan (lovely), and what I think was tiny bits of pickled salsify. A lovely veal sweetbread, lightly crisp outside, creamy in, came with smears of charred eggplant sauce, cherry tomatoes, and summer squash. My companion's wild bass had roasted cauliflower, pearl onions, and a vibrant sauce. And don't forget to try the rose lemonade.

    We absolutely loved finding the rooftop patio for brunch- had been here previously before the patio was open- the food was again spectacular but the ambience of the patio added so much! We have been dreaming about one particular dish... Googled how to make "peanut butter cream" that they paired with peaches and mint on their waffle- can't find a good recipe so we will have to come back for the original!

    I found Table when I was looking for a restaurant near Bohemian Caverns that was open on Monday nights. It was the perfect spot for a summer evening dinner. We had a 6pm reservation, so it wasn't crowded, but it felt intimate and homey, not awkward. The kitchen staff was still doing last minute prep work and it was fun to be so close to the kitchen and see our meals as they were prepared. The food was great - green gazpacho appetizer and chocolate crème dessert were my two favorites. Portions were just right and the menu was handwritten and charming. I appreciated that the it was simple - no arcane descriptions that required googling. Loved that our server had a charming French accent. I'd definitely come back to dine on the deck.

They got our firsts wrong- and my guest had an allergy so she was a little off put. Had to wait for her correct order. Server wasn't busy- restaurant was not nearly full. Maybe our order didn't interest him? I don't know- if I order a 67$ bottle to start that usually screams "hey!sell me something next!" Didn't happen. Boo!

    We went during Restaurant Week 14 to try this place for the first time. Value wise, this was one of the better deals for dinner this year. We decided to order a charcuterie plate before our meal. The duck prosciutto was so delicious. My first issue came when we decided to order a bottle of wine. Our server had NO knowledge of the wine list, which is particularly heavy in French wine. We asked for a recommendation between 3 bottles, but he couldn't tell us anything about the wine, or even choose. Food was great. Small portions, but that was expected. When it was time for dessert, our server complained about having to go downstairs to get it. Then he complained about how he had to work instead of watching True Blood. Disappointing staff.

    We went for the last day of restaurant week Aug 2014. They only had the RW menu; it was a good selection and the food we had was delicious. The ground floor level looks like one long table against the wall. The other side of the skinny room is the food prep area. The rest of the chef "theater" was good fun to watch. The chef was energetically cracking lobster at one point; our table was so close that hubby was hit by debris! Not much, but was surprising. They only had one dessert, ice cream. By the time our dessert time rolled around they apparently only had one kind left, salted caramel. It was delicious but extremely melty. (They were storing it in a gelato cart outside.) Portions are not huge so we weren't overstuffed from 3 courses.

    Went to Table for restaurant week, when they had implemented a cancellation fee for canceling reservations less than 48 hours in advance that was hidden in the opentable confirmation email. The hostess called to confirm my reservation within that 48 hour period, and even though I wanted to cancel I decided not to in order to avoid the fee (75% of the cost of the menu) since the hostess wouldn't waive the fee. After essentially being forced to use this reservation, I wished I had just paid the fee. The appetizers were the best part, but we're just ok. The mussels entree was very low on flavor, and the "dessert" was a small bowl of half-melted overly-sweet ice cream. Not worth the price, and not an experience I will be repeating.

    We went friday night during restaurant week. We sat on the roof which was lovely. The whole meal felt very romantic. We started with a cheese & charcuterie plate. Phenomenal. We also ordered a St Emilion Bordeaux. SO GOOD. my partner started w/ salmon, I had the green gazpacho. Perfect. My partner had the hanger steak w/ risotto, I had grilled artic char w/ summer vegetables. Everything cooked perfectly, flavorful, delicious. For dessert we had ice cream (chocolate + strawberry). My partner said it was the best ice cream he'd ever had and he's eaten ice cream in Italy. It was a perfect, romantic dinner sate. Service was impeccable.

    This place is another addition to the food conscious restaurant scene. We came for Restaurant Week so the food was good, but the menu was limited and the portions were on the small side. They have a great wine selection. We sat on the first floor and didn't realize there was an upstairs patio. The regular menu is pretty expensive, but might be worth another visit. I might come back for the brunch special.
