A word from The Front Page - DC
The Front Page DC, opened in 1985, has been serving DC's socialites for decades! We pride ourselves on prompt, friendly service, excellent food, long happy hours, and bountiful brunches. We have won DC's best happy hour and voted TOP 10 spots to Brunch. We have been known for our affordable pricing, including our famous $9 lunch specials. We offer insane specials including our half priced burger nights with trivia on Tuesdays and our biggest night of the week...Taco Thursday's with a free taco bar starting at 5 pm and $2 Coronas. The Front Page has always been family owned and operated, and we have always treated our restaurants like our home. We welcome you to our restaurant, and we hope you feel like you are home while you are here. Cheers, Alex HeidenbergerContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "We went with another couple for our first visit to Front Page. The staff was very friendly and we got our table as soon as we walked in. The booths in the back of the restaurant are so small and very tight for 4 people to sit at . We didn't feel like we could relax at all. Our food came out cold and had to be sent back, but the waiter immediately fixed the problem. I don't think we would go back to this restaurant, nothing really stood out to us."

  • "The deals at The Front Page cannot be beat, college bar prices for a sophisticated crowd and environment! I am looking forward to dining here again ASAP!"

  • "Service was just ok, they were out of Salmon of all things! Never like it when a server pours iced tea into my coke!"

  • "I normally love Front Page, good happy hour vibe. Went for lunch with my hubby last week and every other song was a Christmas song...it's MARCH! Kind of funny at first, but then got annoying. Also, one of their delivery trucks hadn't arrived so none of the salmon meals, including the special, could be ordered. Not enough of a deterrence to keep me from not coming back though."

  • "Front Page-DC is an amazing place to dine. The staff is always friendly and the food has never disappointed me taste-wise."

  • "Meeting over lunch was great. Food was good, server was responsive to our needs, but aware of the fact a meeting was going on."

  • "I've been here for happy hour on two occasions and it's always been packed. The back part of The Front Page tends to be more quiet. The food was ok. I had the fish and chips. As much as I love talapia, this is not the right white fish to use for fish and chips. Also, i was thrown by the breading rather than a beer batter. It made the fish too heavy."

  • "I grew up in MD and have worked in the DC Metro area all my life and just cannot believe I didn't know about this place. Our server Javier was the best. The food was well presented and tasted yummy! My faforite drink "mojito" was also good. I will defenitely revisit Front Page....hmmm can I get over there today?! I'm making myself hungry just thinking about it."

  • "This is a place for comfort food shared with good friends over stories about your day. For those who live near Dupont Circle it is a neighborhood place that must be tried at least once. The good mood and the good food stave off the blues of a bad week bad weather and perhaps even a broken heart. Save room for the chocolate cake, it'll make you want to call home to speak to mom!"

  • "Worked flawlessly. Great stress reliever to find available space when I needed it for a small group meeting for viewing National Christmas Tree. Very accommodating for early arrival. Attentive staff with good food at reasonable(for DC) prices. Comfortable atmosphere for conversation. Great experience & our out-of-town relatives were duly impressed."

  • "A friend tipped me to Sunday Brunch at the Front Page, but I had never gone there for lunch. What a great find for lunch. The menu and food is excellent, service is courteous and efficent for lunch. Now I will highly recommend not only for Sunday Brunch, but Lunch as well!"

  • "I needed a restaurant that would suit my visiting family, which meant it had to be reasonably priced, conveniently located, and able to offer a certain amount of variety in its Thanksgiving menu (including flexibility for the celiacs among us). The Front Page's Thanksgiving buffet was tasty, well-staffed, and very reasonably priced. We especially appreciated the wide variety of dessert options (pumpkin cheesecake, yum). Some items ran short from time to time, but they were always replaced quickly by the staff, even towards the end of service. The food was well-cooked and tasted fresh, except for a couple of minor temperature issues--but that's par for the course in a buffet. Overall, a solid choice!"

  • "Very wide array for menu options for the Thanksgiving buffet maintaining a traditional style to the menu. All of the I sampled was extremely tasty and plentiful. Had very good wait service attending to the patrons' needs. A wide variety of tasty desserts as well. The noise level was reasonable and holiday festive. Appreciated the seating request accommodation for my disability. Reasonably priced for seniors. Will definitely return And bring friends."

  • "Met friends there for dinner after work. Food and service were very good. The noise level is high due to all the hard surfaces of décor."

  • "I've been to Front Page before and had excellent service. Today, our server didn't put in our order a full 30 minutes after we arrived. Even though it took a long time to get our food, it was good, and they did compensate us for our inconvenience. It was just unfortunate I was so late getting back to work."

  • "I had only been to The Front Page for happy hour or late at night before and was surprised how good their food was! We had a free appetizer and I got the sirloin with mashed potatoes. Overall, a good meal!"

  • "And that's a good thing. Good food, quieter and not crowded like it used to be. Good to catch up with former work colleagues."
    Dined on 10/22/2013
  • "We liked that the bar and dining room were separated enough to give the overall place a vibrant atmosphere and yet allow for dinner conversation. The restaurant was hip and at the same time conveyed tradition. Food and service a bit disjointed. Our salads came out at the same time as the entre and the waiter didn't understand our frustration. My roast chicken was overcooked and dry. We had to ask for ice for the room temperature table water."
