15 ria - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good. Unfortunately the restaurant is too much a part of the hotel and has the aura of a fancified hotel dining area. Wait staff wearing the very typical hotel name badges didn't help. Good wines on the list, and the bar manager was first rate. Wait staff needs to engage. Overall a nice evening if unspectacular.
Janis McClean is a gem and her food is outstanding. She was there until all the diners had finished. Great food and her hospitality was wonderful.Her use of local foods make you feel like, not only are you receiving a great meal, but that you are doing something for the larger world.
It was the day before the inauguration, so I was willing to cut some slack, but the service was still well sub par. The waiter, while very nice, neither spoke nor understood english well. The restaurant was crowded but not full, so I am not sure why everything took soooooo long. The orders were not correct, not served timely, etc. Menu was ok, but a bit odd. Everything had the one ingredient that did not seem to match. The setting was pretty, the only thing that exceeded expectations, but that did not make up for a bad experience.
Wow....what a find! Couple excellent food served with panache and personal service and that sums up the dining experience at 15ria. Every dish we ordered was outstanding in flavor and presentation, and each was distinctive and anything but commonplace. And all for a moderate price!
While we have long enjoyed dining at 15 Ria over the years, when we made our reservation this time, there was no mention that the hotel in which the restaurant is located was undergoing renovations (which included the restaurant); thus, rather than an enjoyable evening in the regular lush setting of the restaurant, temporary tables were set up in a makeshift "restaurant" while the renovation was underway. We certainly would have appreciated some notice about the renovation, because we really would not have bothered making a reservation for such "ambiance." Overall, a very disappointing return visit.
The only thing good about this place was the food. The restaurant was under construction, so they moved a few tables into one of the hotel ballrooms and called that the restaurant. The services was terrible. After we ordered are drinks and food we never saw our waiter again until the food came out, anywhere from 30-40 minutes later. That meant no drink refills or bread basket seconds while we were waiting. Like I said, the food was good, but it wasn't worth the $20+ spent to sit in a hotel ballroom. For that amount of money, I'd like to at least be able to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant.
15 ria is one of DC's best kept dining secrets. It deserves, but doesn't get, the crowds that populate the better known eateries. 15 ria's food is always superb: the ingredients are first rate, always fresh and properly and pleasingly prepared. A sablefish entree, nestled in artichoke mashed potatoes and glazed with a lemon-caper cream sauce, easily rivaled recent meals at The Source, West End Bistro, Brasserie Beck and Central. On the down side, the dining room is currently under renovation (to be ready by late December), and the restaurant has taken up temporary quarters in a dreary hotel conference room. If reliable, top-tier food is more important than surroundings, 15 ria can be counted on to deliver.
The main dining room is under renovation -- that should be mentioned on web page when making reservation. Of course, we would not go there during the renovationi period. Instead of using their conference room temporary dining room, we moved to the bar area and had a good meal.
Everyone else must know of the renovation 'cause normally the bar is hopping but not Fri night when we where there for dinner.
The menu is very exciting and so is the food. Everything we ate was creatively cooked and spiced. Lots of great tastes.Portions were just the right size. Wine list was also terrific --and prices were moderate. The restaurant is about to remodel, which should improve the ambiance. Definitely a find in Logan Circle area.
Salads were excellent and perfectly dressed (not swimming in dressing). I was reminded why NY Strip steak is one of my least favorite cuts of beef... it was done properly, medium rare just as I ordered it, but it is not the tastiest or the most tender option for serving beef. Sides were delicious. I'd got there again but not order the beef.
When I was looking for a great restaurant to take my friend, I didn't realize I had made a reservation at a hotel! This place is really in the Doubletree hotel...kind of a let down. We split a great salad that had pecans, gorgonzola, and tomatos. We ordered the eggs benedict and it came out barely warm with little flavor. The roast potatoes were old and cold. I didn't finish my meal. I wouldn't go back.
This restaurant is inviting and cozy. From the minute you walk in, the decor gives you an intimate yet sophicated taste of ambiance. Come in and enjoy "the jewel of the city". The cuisine is remarkably good with a variety of american choices presented in a haute-american style. A very good value.
The atmosphere and the food were phenomenol. The seating was so comfortable that you never wanted to leave and with food so good that it melts in your mouth, you won't want to leave any time soon. The Eggplant Appetizer was absolutely delightful and delicious. All of the staff was professional and courtetous. They made you feel at home and they were not afraid to interact with those in the restaraunt on a more personal nature. A great place to eat any time of day. Highly recommend this restaraunt for a date night no matter what stage your relationship is in.
Although the restaurant is listed as one of Washington Post's top 100, it was pretty bad. We ordered the calamari for our appetizer and it was actually very good. Unfortunatly, that was the only highlight of our meal. My wife order the iron skillet steak and it was overcooked, although she asked for it to be medium well. I order the "Blue plate special" which was jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab served with a mushroom risotto. There was barely any crab stuffed in the shrimp and the risotto was way overcooked. We will not be returning to this restaurant and would not recommend.
This restaurant was located in the hotel in which I stayed for a week. The service was always prompt and the food was very good. If they could have served the pancakes twenty-four hours a day, it would have pleased me well. Everyone in the restaurant was very friendly and accommodated your every need.
We were there at 5:30, and, as requested, out by 7:30 in time for the play at the Studio. We'd planned to eat outside but it started to rain; the staff was great about moving us indoors to a table we liked. Being that it was early, the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation. The food was good except for an inedibly-sweet dessert; the waiter took the cost of that item off the bill. Overall a good experience and we'll probably be back during next years play season.
We were five for a business breakfast with foreign guests. I had no expectations. We were impressed by the unconventional choices, particularly a number of interesting healthy options. Everyone enjoyed the food. The restaurant was quiet and we could talk. Service was timely and unobtrusive. The only mishap was that one guest did not get what he ordered. Although the waiter offered to replace the plate with the correct order, the guest preferred not to wait. My previous choice for breakfast in this neighborhood was the Jefferson, or a bit further away, the Madison. I would come again and would recommend the restaurant to others.
