A word from The Daily Dish, A Restaurant & Catering Company
At the Daily Dish, the focus is on comfort food that is seasonally inspired, sustainable and locally sourced. We believe that the Farm to Fork experience benefits everyone from small farmers to our diners. We visit local produce markets to purchase seasonal, fresh produce. Our pita, focaccia & pizza dough are made daily. Our salmon & chicken are organic. We use fresh, pasture fed beef. We make our mozzarella, pickles, sauces, dressings & vinaigrettes in house from scratch. The cocktail bar has local tap beer, fun cocktails and a varied wine list. We follow these principles to cater your special event.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We have been to this restaurant 3 times previously and really liked it. But this time we weren't told that there would be a birthday party of about 40 people and we (4 of us) would be the only non-party table in the restaurant. The shouting, laughing and total chaos was unbelievable. And we were in the middle of it. We couldn't hold a conversation and the service was slow. I fault the restaurant for not closing to the public for this private event. It was a ruined evening."

  • "We have been many times, for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The restaurant always gives you a personal feel, and the quality is something you can count on. this was my first brunch there. I was not disappointed."

  • "The food is high quality, source regionally and well prepared. The noise level on a Sat evening was high (90) Not so romantic as is modern chic."

  • "The food was yummy but the portion was on the smaller size. I had the salmon and although the salmon piece was an OK size, the accompaniment was very small. Would have liked more veggies."

  • "The Daily Dish is a great find in the neighborhood. Give it a shot and I am sure you will not be disappointed. Dishes are interesting, balanced and the proportions are just right. The tap is always fresh! The cocktails also are very good and make use of local/ regional offerings which grounds the place to the area."

  • "went for its Valentine's Day 3-course dinner for $38. Oyster stew started the meal. It was creamy & came with several oysters. The half duck was nicely roasted, but disappointed because the skin wasn't crispy. my friend's steak was overdone, so the waiter quickly & without a problem, replaced it with one that was just grilled to the right degree of doneness. The flourless chocolate torte was not too sweet & very chocolaty."

  • "OMG - the scones alone are worth going back for! Buttery, slightly sweet, elevated by the butter and raspberry jam - my friend and I not only had them before our mains, but decided that we needed to each take some home! The cranberry scones (and I'm not normally a cranberry fan) were flaky and light, with the appropriate amount of denseness. I think our eyes may have rolled back into our heads in delight at the first bite. Our server was very nice, but a bit scattered. I had the egg sandwich on challah with bacon and smoked gouda - the egg/bacon/cheese components were delicious, but the bread was dry. It needed some moisture, whether some tomato slices or a light dijon spread of some sort - something! But, I will be back!"

  • "Last Saturday was the first time I dined at The Daily Dish. I met some friends there for brunch. The service was great and the food was awesome. Everything was fresh and hot. I would recommend this restaurant for brunch on the weekend. We weren't rushed like you are in some restaurants when you are there for brunch. It's a very low key, funky place with local art on the walls. They also have a make your own bloody mary's bar on the weekend which was kind of fun. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to folks and I do plan to go back there for other meals in the future."

  • "The staff was overwhelmed and service was sub par. I won't be going back. The food was fine but not worth the aggravation"

  • "I rarely venture outside the District to dine with friends but brunch at The Daily Dish was definitely worth it. Perfect ambiance. Not too formal, not too casual. The service was efficient and the Eggs Florentine were divine. All for $18 including tip (without alcohol). Great deal. I will come back. 11 AM sunday was a great time. Noon was more crowded"

  • "I recently stopped by The Daily Dish after hearing about their delicious vegan soups, and I must say I was not disappointed. I started with a bowl of the butternut squash soup. I can't even begin to describe how amazing the flavor was, I wanted to lick the bowl it was so perfect. They change their soups frequently and often offer multiple soups daily. I then ordered the veggie pizza with no cheese. The Daily Dish offers a soy cheese for the pizza but I prefer more toppings to cheese. The dough on the pizza had a great flavor and they definitely don't skimp on the toppings like most places. I had two glasses of wine, and was definitely impressed by the diversity and depth of the wine list. Great service, great food. I'll be back!!"

  • "My hubby and I had a wonderful dinner on Saturday night - we started with the beef sliders and caesar salad, then I had the butternut squash risotto, and he had the pepperoni & sausage pizza. It was empty when we got there around 6:00, but it picked up and was about half-full when we left - my guess is because of the holiday weekend. Staff was very attentive and responsive. Not exactly a warm and fuzzy type of place, but good spot for tasty and different food. Would go back again. :)"

  • "The Daily Dish is a delightful local restaurant with good ambiance and food. But the noise level was so high that we had sore throats from shouting at each other by the end of the evening. Don't go here if you are planning to catch up with old friends."

  • "My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere to have a quick breakfast and found this place on Yelp so we gave it a try. It was a beautiful morning and they had the "garage door" (which makes up a wall of the restaurant) open, but we just sat outside under their little covered patio. It wasn't very busy and service was good, and we both enjoyed our meals. They have a nice full brunch menu with all the go-to meals, as well as brunch drinks, although we didn't try those since we were just there for a quick meal. We were also delighted to find that dogs were allowed on the patio!"

  • "This is a great neighborhood find, a gem tucked away in a residential area. The service is always friendly and attentive. The food is made fresh for each order. They buy from local farms and waters, and you can taste the difference. Portions are just right."
