OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
5.0  Dined on June 3, 2016

We were in for a family wedding and the 17 of us not involved in the rehearsal had dinner at 15 Ria. We had 4 small children and one person in the wheel chair. They took care of everything and made sure all our requests were met. We were very disorganized since we had not been together as a group in a while. The staff was wonderful -- very patient with us and accommodating. Everyone loved their food. I know in particular the mozzarella sticks, small chicken tacos, flat bread pizza with shrimp and Shrimp Avocado was very good. They let us get appetizers from the bar menu. We brought a birthday cake and they stored it in their refrigerator for us and brought it out with candles (which I forgot) at dessert time.

They put together a long table for 17 people at the edge of the restaurant which allowed us to walk around the table an speak to various people during the dinner.

There were only two patrons in the restaurant when I visited for lunch. Yet, service was incredibly slow. It was also generally bad. I ordered soup and an entree. Before I'd had four spoonfuls of soup, the entree arrived. Really bad timing. And although I ordered the meat medium-well, I was served a well-done hockey puck that was brunt on the edges. Terrible time and I don't plan to return.

This restaurant is set up to take advantage of travelers. I don't know how this restaurant has so many stars, nor why the description doesn't mention that it is the restaurant of the Doubletree Hotel. I should have read the reviews, which would have told me that it was the Doubletree restaurant, but the description sounded good, and it had four stars, so I made a reservation. When I met my friend there, I discovered that it was a hotel restaurant. Giving the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, we ordered. The food on the basic menu was was uninspired and not particularly fresh. It was the same quality as an average lunch buffet, but in a city with a number of good-to-great lunch buffets, average is disappointing. For the same price my friend and I could've had fresher, more inspired food at many, many restaurants in DC.

Nice setting; buffet (although on restaurant site it showed menu for Sunday). Choice of food; however, food was uncovered then covered, so food was not warm at it should have been; including pancakes). Plates were not cleared from the table after we went back to the buffet to help ourselves to some more food.

Out together a last minute birthday brunch and found that 15 Ria could accommodate. They were great about our last minute additions as our group continued to grow. People had a range of more breakfast and lunch entrees. Everyone said they liked what they had. Nice service.

While I found the food sufficient, I was a bit disappointed as they advertise the local farms that are suppliers. I was hoping for more uniqueness. I guess they must have to consider the hotel guests and that is why it was uneventful.

THIS THE DOUBLETREE. It's a fine experience, but it's a hotel restaurant like most others.

I met four colleagues for a business meeting and we got a lot done! We discussed our business over a few drinks, continued over dinner and wrapped up our evening! Valet parking and outdoor dining making this upcoming outdoor season an amazing opportunity for 15 Ria!

The food was really good and we received great service. We didn't have to wait a long time for our food either. The ambiance was great, we sat right by the fireplace. Happy hour prices are to die for!!

Service was delightful, and salmon was exquisitely prepared. Nice pasta dish with mushrooms and spinach

There was no host to greet us. We had to find someone working (1 waitress and 1 bartender) . It was 20 degrees outside and felt like 21 degrees inside. This was after the blizzard 4 days after the last last snow fall. However l don't know how you have two people working, NO HEAT, and children yelling the entire time. The food was good but l would never go back

Based on the menus and reviews it looked like a nice small new restaurant. Food was great but it was inside the Double Tree hotel and definitely had the feel of a hotel restaurant. There was hardly anyone there yet our service was still very slow and disorganized.

Did not know this was in a hotel when i made the reservation. Met an out of town friend for late breakfast and tho the food was fine, it was nothing special. We were the only ones in the place! Would have preferred a standalone restaurant but this one got such good reviews...cant figure it out.

I had n early Thursday dinner. Host and wait staff were great. As was the food. It's pretty obviously a hotel restaurant but otherwise nice. I'll be back.

We ended up at 15ria when busy lunch spots downtown could not accommodate a party of 5 for lunch. It ended up being a much better choice, mostly because it was blissfully quiet and allowed for easy conversation across the table. Everyone was very happy with their food, which included entree salads, wraps and a vegetarian pasta dish. One of our party even asked for an item not on the menu - a turkey burger - and said it was excellent. Service was friendly, efficient and non-intrusive.

I've been to 15 Ria several times. The food is usually pretty good. On this particular occasion (my birthday) , I enjoyed my meal (fisherman's stew), as did my two sisters (ribeye and shrimp scampi rigatoni), my friend however, was disappointed with the steak, which was one of the evening's specials. The ribeye is a far better choice. We ordered the crab cake appetizer and the prosciutto flatbread. The crab cake was pretty good, lots of crab. The prosciutto was ham and not prosciutto, there is a difference, but it was still good none the less.

The restaurant was pretty empty; our table and one other. The waiter was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed ourselves and I know I will certainly be back again. That said, I always use a gift certificate, which makes visiting the restaurant worth it.

The food was good and waitstaff was very pleasant, albeit a little slow. We weren't in a hurry, so it was no problem. For those in a hurry, I recommend the buffet. Looked good, though we ordered off the menu.

The crab fritters is the only item I would order again. Steak salad needed seasoning; Mac and cheese had a odd, off-putting taste; rib-eye steak needed to bet rimed - 1/3 of it was inedible; and grilled asparagus was bitter. Nice selection of drinks that were good.
