An excellent (but expensive) meal. The service was outstanding, each entrée and appetizer (and dessert) was perfect. We were in the front room, and the little café-style chairs were very uncomfortable if you ever wanted to lean back -- it felt like you were reclining on a bamboo rack.
We will be back!
My girlfriends came to visit me from Miami for a girls weekend. We enjoyed our meal, ambiance and wine .. our waitress was amazing! Highly recommend.
Classic Georgetown restaurant with great food
Amazing, I went with my boyfriend for our 1-year anniversary and the food was great, service was great, and they even gave us a personalized menu, a card, and a take-home dessert gift to celebrate our anniversary.
It’s nice experience. Good service and food in general. The tasting menu is great, totally worths it . We had the oyster, foie gras, scallop, and duck. The oyster was little bit not as well as I expected. But all the others were perfect.
I reserved 1789 but was seated next door in a sports bar with paintings of football players on the wall - not very romantic!
We love 1789 and we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a very special dinner. We tried the seven course tasting menu and it was the best meal we have ever had. Each course contained superior ingredients and new flavors. The presentation was amazing as well. As always the service was attentive, warm and welcoming. Congratulations to 1789’s new chef.
Food, service and environment is always amazing every time we go!
This was our Valentines Day celebration. We had dined here many years ago in our youth. The meal was delicious, and service was superb. It was perfect. We will definitely return.
I was told that “all wine bottles would be 50% off, however, I was informed just as they were opening a bottle of Opus One that all wines over $250 would be full price. I was extremely disappointed with this, but the food was delicious.
Manager was not friendly. I asked to move our table, since it was really dark, they didn’t respond to my request. I couldn’t see my food and my bass had fishy smell. As general they did not give good service so I didn’t enjoy my dinner which cost us $200 for 2. I can’t recommend it as before it was my favorite place.
Except for the valets great
Very old fashion decor. Quiet place, the food was just OK. Not worth the $180 we spent on two people. The staff is very attentive.
The reservation comments sent back after making reservation in Open Table specified a jacket "required" for men, however a lot of men showed up wearing jeans and casual clothes (that alone spoiled my night). Don't specify a jacket anywhere if you are NOT going to follow thru!!
The bread was very good. I ate the recommended duck dish and it was just OK, nothing to rave about. The portions are small which I liked but at the same time I wonder how much smaller are the portions if you choose the pre fixe chef recommended menu (the waitress said portions were smaller if you chose that option). The food is served on a big plate, which is OK IF THE PLATE is super shiny and new, however the plates at the restaurant are showing some tear and wear stains so in that case it just made food look bad. It's just a white plate, go and buy new ones please.
I loved the fact they have complimentary valet parking and coat check-in.
Liked the renovation, new bar in the old F. Scott Fitzgerald area a nice touch, Sean is an awesome bartender. Server was knowledgeable, patient. Food (Cod and bass) good but not spectacular.
My wife and I went here for her birthday and the staff presented her with a card after our dinner. Excellent service.
