    This is a small, cozy neighborhood restaurant very close to the Washington DC convention center. The food is clean, simple, health conscious, with high quality ingredients, i.e. "local food" cooked to perfection. Ambiance is good for small groups. Service is excellent. Would definitely go again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. Loved the oysters, the sweetbreads, the beignets and the peanut butter panna cotta. The service was wonderful. The tastes were delicate and harmoniously came together. Portion sizes were perfect. The design is quite pretty: Wood tables that can be pushed together for multiple diners and wood benches. Nice hanging ceiling lights. The kitchen is right in front of the dining area so you get to see the magic happen. It is a small restaurant in DC standards. Wonderful cuisine. My favourite in DC by far.

    After looking forward to eating at Table, we were very disappointed. It was a 35 degree night outside, and it felt exactly that cold inside too. We were never able to take off our heavy winter coats while eating. When we asked about the heating, or lack thereof, we got different answers from different people, which is a sign of dishonesty. While one person said the heating repairman never came, another said they didn't have heating set up because the space is an old garage, and a third said that the heating just wasn't on full speed yet because it was early winter. It took them over 30 minutes to even get a small space heater near our table, which barely helped. Both tables next to us complained as well, and we barely got a response out of management or the hostess. The food was great, and our waiter was perfectly nice, but the lack of heating and the subsequent dishonesty in answering our questions ruined the night and negated any good food. I would not recommend eating here.

    We dined here on a recent trip to DC on the recommendation of a local friend. Service was excellent -- attentive but not obtrusive. I had mushroom tart, followed by a Branzino, cooked whole with julienne vegetables.The fish was fresh, moist and piping hot. For dessert, ricotta beignet with honey.

    Really excellent experience. Started with a nice bottle of wine, the duck prosciutto, as well as the entree of the roasted cauliflower as a second app. Both were really good. I really wanted to try the foie gras and the beef tartare, but two of the four in my group were not adventurous foodies, so I had to keep myself in check. The table next to us had both and I was a bit envious, as they both looked amazing. For my entree I had the beef tenderloin. It was prepared perfectly, although it was a couple of ounces smaller than my hungry self wished for. Dessert and coffee were both outstanding. We couldn't decide, so I ordered three desserts and none were left. I will most definitely return when back in DC. Service too, was just spot on.

    Love the farm to table concept, but so much more could be done with the food. The food was really fresh tasting, but I can't say there was any course that wowed me and would get me to return. Nothing wrong with Table and maybe my expectations were too high. I was just looking for more flavor. If you want good, Table is the place. If you want amazing, find a table at another restaurant!

    I have eaten at Table before and I have found it better and improving in the past. Based on my most recent experience, I would say the food is interesting, but not nearly enough so to justify the price. We have a dearth of restaurant in the area that care about food--as opposed to an entertaining factory like most of the places on 14th Street--and it is clear that Table aspires to quality. Table can be better than it is. I hope it will be. Our server spoke so quietly (or the noise was so prominent) that those of us on the opposite end of the table from her could hardly hear her. Noise has been a problem there on past visits. Service in general seemed disorganized.

    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.

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.

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.

    Group of 8. Waited over 30mins for our table. Seated on the roof, where the wood deck was very wobbly & lighting overbearing. I never received the soup I ordered. Those who received soup had a cook come up & drop a piece of salmon into their bowl. After, she went to laugh about it with another server in plain sight. My scallops were very sandy, portions very small & others had mixed feelings about their order. One person at our table spoke with the maitre d' about our experience, simply to make them aware of our disappointment. They asked about dessert, and we all declined, wanting to leave. Instead, they brought out every dessert on the menu. I had very mixed feelings about their reaction to poor food & service. We will never be returning.

    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!
