This energetic Thomas Circle restaurant serves innovative American cuisine, with influences from our Chef Quang Duong. Because we use locally grown ingredients, our menu changes frequently, keeping the choices fresh and seasonal. The ambiance is inviting at any time of day; watch the "early birds" at Thomas Circle in the morning, sunbathers taking a dip in our pool after lunch, or a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. Sip a glass of champagne or a cocktail by candlelight on our Poolside Terrace and make a wish while watching the stars over Washington, D.C.

The Thanksgiving dinner ham was overcook and many of the side dishes taste the same. The salad and desert was nice. $45 per adult and $25 per child! Not many children eat $25 worth food. Completely overpriced and we still paid $10 for parking! Why do we need a validation if you still pay for parking?

Food was horribly dry and salty, desserts seemed store bought and tasteless! Was sat in a meeting room with no ambiance and poor service. Manager stated they had over 700 reservations, clearly the business model here represents bottom line over a quality product.

I felt this place did none of that. While nothing was horrible, nothing was great either. The food was bland, the service was just average, and the atmosphere was empty. It appears this place is past its hay day. I’ll pass on a return.

We arrived to discover that the traditional Sunday brunch had been discontinued three months earlier. When I called to make reservations, I was told that the brunch had changed but the buffet was still there. I made reservations for an 11 am brunch and arrived to learn that the breakfast buffet actually ended at 11 am. Why the person who took my reservation neglected to explain that fact is a mystery.

Didn't eat breakfast but it smelled wonderful.

I've been to many better brunches and definitely WILL NOT come back. buffet was clearly old food and not fresh. look for somewhere better.. food was just not fresh. asking for things (like coffee, and then cream) from most servers felt like an inconvenience. nobody explained the brunch buffet situation to us and we didn't have an official waiter introduce him or herself to us. it was awkward. we won't be coming back and I wouldn't recommend to friends

I learned of 10 Thomas through Washingtonian Magazine -- they were recommended for Easter Brunch. So I made a reservation and looked forward to it. The dining room has a very aged look to it. But I wasn't there to eat the furniture. The Easter Brunch was buffet style with an omelette station, a hand carved prime rib station, and a hand carved ham station. The omelette was very good. So was the ham. Everything else was disappointing. The food in the chaffers was cold and hard. The spring rolls and edamame potstickers were cold, hard, and had no taste. The mashed potatoes were overcooked and disgusting looking. The champagne in the mimosas is not good quality -- immediate headache inducer. I wanted this to be a good experience, but, sad to say, it wasn't. Between the cold, hard food and the chaotic parking experience (tight spots, poorly directed by hotel staff, and $17 for self park), it was an awful experience that happened once... only once... because it will NOT have a chance of happening again.

However, just an FYI, the parking garage is NOT FREE!! It’s a $17 fee to park there and the guards will not let you know until you try to exit the garage. We were pretty upset and voiced our opinion, especially after paying $100 bucks for brunch. The manager reasoned with us after arguing for a couple minutes and comp’d our parking. All in all, it’s a nice place and we will definitely return.

The front desk of the hotel told us the restaurant was closed for the night. I didn't get any notification before hand that my reservation was no longer valid.

What was supposed to be a 4 1/2 hour trip... turned into 6 1/2. We finally found the Hotel. Was famished! I tried to book the nearest place to eat, since we weren’t familiar at all with the D.C. area. I was absolutely PLEASED! The setting, ambiance, food and service definitely made up for what we went through on that highway trip down! A definite go to!!!
