Diner Reviews
  • "I was excited to try this place, but after going there, I wouldn't even recommend it. The food was ok. My skirt steak was basically raw so I didn't eat it. They didn't have the dish I had initially ordered (even though we were the first group there for lunch). They didn't have two of the summer drinks in the menu so we ordered the next best thing (iced tea). It took about 45 minutes to get the iced tea. The place also smelled like BO...oh and there was good in one of our apps. They did take off the app from the bill and bring another one. I would never go back and I would not recommend this place."

  • "octopus was unforgatable, great fish and the soup of the day very origina and delicious!. Great place with completely open kitchen to enjoy "the show" during your dinner. We loved it!"

  • "I went to Table with my boyfriend for a long overdue date night. I had heard good things and was eager to try it. The negative comments I had seen about service were unwarranted on this night. Everyone was friendly and overall attentive (though our table never received bread at the start of the meal). We ordered a cheese plate, wild boar rilletes, and two entrees (the rib eye and the Bronzino). All of the food ranged from good to great. I admit I likely missed out on some of the flavor of the fish because I was picking out bones (it comes whole). The ambiance is cool. While it would've been nice to sit on the upstairs patio, I enjoyed watching all if the chefs work right in front of you. Overall, worth going at least once!"

  • "We got a table on the roof deck - recommended on a nice night even if it is a little noisier. The second floor also looked like a nice place to sit. All the food was exquisite - their homemade chicken liver mousse was the star of the charcuterie, all cheeses were very fresh, and the special Thai pea soup was very refreshing. The sea bass was perfectly cooked, and the Peruvian flavors in the octopus were spot on. Dessert (beignets and chess pie) were also fabulous. Our waitress was friendly and not overbearing at all. All in all a great meal."

  • "While the bench style sitting looks great, it was extremely uncomfortable considering we were dinning v eating at a quick service restaurant. I thought our server was overworked and it felt rushed every time he came to our table- it appeared that he was the only server in the area. A little overwhelmed at the check amount considering yelp states it is $$."

  • "Went for our anniversary. First visit to Table. Service was outstanding. Food equally was excellent. Being form Baltimore and raised in a family that loves seafood especially crabs I had to try the soft shell crab appetizer. Typically I'm a little disappointed by how restaurants prepare soft shells but this was spot on. Not over cooked, little breading allowing you to experience the full flavor of the crab. We will definitely be back"

  • "Great ambiance, but the service was poor. Maybe it was an off night, but it was my birthday so it was disappointing. I had a friend with me that had dietary restrictions, and I let Table know in advance. Our server knew nothing about the restrictions, and we spent a lot of time figuring out what my friend could eat, which was very little (a bowl of plain lettuce). This was unfortunate as we had to discuss her situation at the table, and - I had thought - that my notifying the restaurant in advance would have meant that she could at least have something for her to eat. Our food took a long time - the server shared that the kitchen "did not get the ticket." The A/C was freezing and my friends were cold the whole night."

  • "I was disappointed in table. It has a very hip feel and I wanted to like it but the food was average, for a moderately pricy restaurant. The grilled avocado was great but the vegan entree--grilled vegetables was disappointing and unimaginative. The service was very slow. The server wasn't rude but he was a bit terse. The setting is nice though. Outspokenly hipster, but the place pulls it off, and there's plenty of natural light, which is great in the evening."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food was fantastic (even had some delicious vegan options for my daughter)! We sat on the roof deck on a lovely evening, great ambiance. Interactions with the waiter were very good, very professional except that the food was very slow to come out. I had the sense that they were short-staffed, the waiter did what he could to stay on top of things but felt like we had to flag him down at times. I've been there once before and did not have the service/food delivery issue. And it was such a nice environment it didn't feel uncomfortable to have to wait a bit."

  • "Cool spot, very unique feeling to it. Liked the open kitchen too. However, the prices were very high given the small portions and quality of food. Nothing really stood out."

  • "I went with my mother and we had a cute little table on the patio in the back. It was pretty quiet and we were right next to the beautiful wall of plants. We mostly ordered and shared a bunch of appetizers - all of which were delicious - and shared an entree: the octopus. It was incredibly tender and flavorful!"

  • "We loved this new low key casual restaurant. Food was excellent with a varied menu and highbrow aspirations (foie gras, sweetbreads, squab). Table advertises "Seasonal and Casual Fare". But the food is not casual at all but is well selected and prepared with attention to detail. The atmosphere however is very casual and comfortable. A great combination for a relaxed enjoyable meal."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was absolutely excellent for a very affordable price. The food was extremely light and tasty and the portions were European sized, so unlike most restaurants in the states I didn't feel full afterwards, which is great. The service was very friendly, however, we were seated on the upstairs outdoor patio where there was only one waiter. We got our bottle of wine after the starters had arrived which was less than ideal. I will definitely eat here again!"

  • " Hostess nicely asked us to leave for 5 minutes and look at a menu while they were not 'open' yet. We arrived at 10:55 for a 11:00 am reservation. Taken upstairs to the impressive and intimate covered outdoor dining area. Nice, but why on hot day with reservations were we up top with an empty air conditioned downstairs with a great view of the chefs available? Server was nice but not confident with menu, which made sense b/c last week's menu was in some of our menus, and chef changed items last minute w/out notice. Almost 2 hours for mediocre 5 course menu. Coffee cake was very good. Salmon was on menu as smoked but received pan seared with overly acidic salad. Pasta very good but cold, steak entree good and sorbet ok pre fab..."

  • "Our table of five found the restaurant to be lively with a fresh and natural interior. Every detail had clearly been a considered choice. Our food was also fresh and delicious and perfect in serving sizes. We would recommend that the music be turned down a notch or two because it was difficult hearing others in our party. All in all, we had a great time and will recommend Table to others."

  • "My husband and I had a lovely evening at Table recently. The food was very good - all dishes were delicious and presented very nicely. The service was good, but we had to ask a few times for additional bread with our charcuterie platter, and it was bit difficult locating our server at the end of the evening. That all said, it wasn't such bad service that I'd never return, and the food was certainly worth a return trip - or two. We were able to sit on the outside patio, and the ambiance was lovely. We will certainly be back."

  • "Love this place. Food is on point. Had the soft shell crab app and veal sausage app, both were fantastic. Oysters on the half shell were shucked perfectly. For main courses we had the grilled octopus and the wolf fish and I'd easily recommend either. It was hard to choose from all the delicious sounding desserts, but we went with the chess pie and strawberry compote and were beyond happy with our selection. Very friendly service and a nice wine selection. Looking forward to returning!"

  • "This was my 1st introduction to Table; the friend I was with had been there 3 other times...she loves Great Food. I am so so glad she introduced me. This is one of those rare blends where exquisite down to detail food is served in casual and clean-line sophisticated place. I would come again....many times...for lunch, brunch, and also dinner."

  • "I've been to Table twice for dinner and have had a wonderful experience both times. The food is always superb, but it's the service that makes Table shine. I sat at the chef's counter the first time and chatted with a sous-chef while he plated food and recommended wines. My family just had Father's Day dinner here and no one was disappointed--not the vegetarian, not the picky eater, and not the foodies among us!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I went to Table for the first time for brunch with a group of friends. The courses came out perfectly spaced and we never felt rushed. 4 of us got the over easy egg and it was beyond wonderful. Our other friend got the steak and eggs. His scramble wasn't wonderful but the steak more than made up for it."

  • "I've been here twice now, once for restaurant week and once for dinner. The food during restaurant week was spectacular (and at a great price). When I went there they had a set brunch menu with only two entree options for $35. Maybe this was because it was father's day, but I like to have more than 2 options to choose from and wished that they had told me this in advance. The menu consisted of a breakfast pastry (just one and it was not very good), salad (which was just ok), a small pasta dish (which was good), a choice of sunny side up or steak and eggs (both of which was good), and a sorbet. No drinks included. The main course was delicious, but the whole meal was not worth $35. On top of that the food came out agonizingly slowly."

  • "We enjoyed our food at Table -- great fresh ingredients, tasty preparation, lovely presentation. However, the service was in a word, horrible. We were seated promptly, but then waited for someone, anyone to notice we were there. Even though the restaurant was half full, our waitress kept disappearing so it took a long time to order. The appetizers came promptly, but our entrees arrived before the charcuterie platter we had ordered for the table (at the waitress' suggestion). When we told her she seemed surprised, but isn't it her job to know whether our food has arrived? I had a lovely fish dish, but the service, or lack thereof, negated the good food."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The service was poor. The server never asked for our drink order and there was a long time before we received the pastry course (which only had one option) and all the other courses. The one of the options for the main dish was no longer available and the other option was only available for two (even though there was no mention of that requirement on the menu). Everything was tasteless with the exception of the salmon course."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The server was not very attentive, the ambience was very utilitarian. Right where a bar should be, they have an open air kitchen, so you can see the chef/expeditor sending the food out. Not very nice if you're trying to have an intimate dinner. My wife and I were there for our anniversary, and it was not romantic. The food was good! But the ambience is lacking."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We selected Table for a special birthday dinner based on positive reviews and recommendations of the restaurant from friends. Therefore, our expectations were high. We requested a table on the outdoor patio, which was not granted. The food was average at best. The cured mackerel was bland and the grilled octopus lacked imagination and more importantly flavor. Service was biggest flaw with a 45-minute wait between the first and second course. Overall, it was very disappointing. Far better restaurant choices in Logan Circle and Shaw."

  • "This is a small restaurant in a converted garage, with tables close together, the atmosphere is a little frenetic, but the food is terrific. I had the sashimi appetizer with salad, the squab, and the lemon curd dessert. All were well-prepared and delectable. My husband ordered the boar rillettes (you really have to love meat), and the branzino and piperade, also very good. "

  • "Last minute reservation on Open Table for sunday brunch. They only serve a 5 course menu for brunch so we went with it. Food was excellent but 1st and 2nd course were too close together. Then we waited a very long time for 3rd course. All very tasty but small portions (as it should be). On the way home we remarked that we were still a bit hungry -realized they never gave us our first course of breakfast pastry. Sent an email to the manager but never heard back."

  • "Last weekend we visited DC and found this restaurant on Open Table. It looked like an unusual choice and so it was. The people who work there are nice and friendly and I found the service to be attentive. The restaurant is in a converted garage, with the roll-up garage door incorporated into the decor. While I had fun watching the kitchen staff work, my guy watched the expression on people's faces as they walked in and saw the space. The menu is interesting if you are looking for the latest in dining techniques but definitely for foodies. Everything tasted great but the amount of food was small. We were in and out in about an hour and maybe due to an early-ish seating it felt a bit rushed.-"

  • "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. "
