    Probably one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to. Once seated it took 15 minutes to even be Acknowledged and get coffee, another 15 to place an order. The coffee is the worst I have ever had, like they were actually trying to make bad coffee (I usually take my coffee with 2 creams and for this coffee 6 sugar and 4 cream later it still looked and tasted like butter Mississippi mud). The orange juice tasted expired or pungent and the food was barely okay (for a bill of $80 for 2 people I would have expected much better). Saved yourself a lot of money and a huge disappointment, skip this place.

    Article One - American GrillResponded on May 17, 2022Thank for leaving a review. Although we strive to be the best hotel near the capital we can miss our mark sometimes, that's why your feedback is much appreciated because it helps provide ways we can improve. Waiting 15 minutes to be acknowledged and served is a challenge that can be fixed. I would personally like to apologies if we failed to accommodate you during your stay with us. I will definitely talk to my team to insure our service is much better in the future. Have an amazing week.

    The restaurant host did not honor our reservation. He said that Open Table was not linked up to their computer system and he didn’t understand why I was allowed to make a reservation. He further berated me about how I shouldn’t have made a reservation and needed to wait in line when I had no idea that they didn’t honor it. After being treated in such a way we decided to go eat elsewhere.

    The restaurant was not set up for reservations. There was no hostess and they were very short staffed. After waiting over 10 minutes, we ended up seating ourselves. The actual menu did not match what is advertised on OpenTable. Our waiter did a great job, despite having way too many tables. When we eventually got our food, it was good. I think the experience is misrepresented on OpenTable. We were expecting a full restaurant experience, not a hotel lounge.

    Article One is perfect if you want to have a quiet business lunch. The tables aren't on top of each other, the service is terrific and it never gets very loud. The food is good, some items are much nicer than others. It does feel like hotel food, but for the aforementioned reasons (in particular the outstanding service) we like to have business luncheons there.

    At the start of a busy day we opted for in-house breakfast. Service was fine, Ambiance is comfortable, it's a hotel lobby yet manages to feel restsurant-ish. I had smoked salmon Benedict, which was outstanding. The salmon was salty/Smoky and the hollandaise had a citrus note. My Better Half enjoyed his French toast quite a bit. The coffee is strong and delicious (full disclosure: I am a coffee fanatic) and the servers keep it coming. With a shared plate of fruit (it was gorgeous, and fresh) these 2 entrees and coffee were $55. Not an economy breakfast, but an excellent one.

    Just a couple blocks from the Capitol Building, this was a great place to have a breakfast before checking out the Capitol and the Library of Congress. My spouse had the waffles and I had a asparagus omelet. Service was attentive and the food delicious. If/when back in D.C., we will come back again.

    Just be prepared to wait...for food that comes out wrong. We were forced to order breakfast, 10 minutes before they closed breakfast, so we made choices and ordered. We sat talking for a while, finished our cups of coffee, then sat a while longer. After 30 minutes, we flagged down the host to see if he could find our breakfast. He exclaimed "Breakfast! We are serving lunch!" We explained we had ordered 30 minutes ago, and were still waiting, without even a coffee refill. Then we waited another 10 minutes, and flagged him down again. Finally, the manager came out with our food, which must have been sitting a while because the cheese on the plate had melted, congealed, then sort of the melted in a pile of oil. One thing to note. When we ordered, one companion had specified no tomatoes because she has an allergy. Before any of us took a single bite, we looked and there in her omelette were tomatoes. We flagged down the host once more, since the manager had disappeared as soon as the plates were set down, and let him know we were leaving. The cap on the whole experience was his reply. He told us, "well, I tried to get you some food." Not even an apology. We went across the street and only waited 10 minutes for a table without a reservation. Yes, I had reserved a table at Article One.

    From start to finish, we had a delicious meal! I highly recommend the fried shrimp and calamari, and the deviled eggs. Both were delicious as starters. The staff was very attentive and everything was served hot. They were also great in suggesting a wine that would go well with my meal...they have a great wine selection. We dined here while staying in the hotel and loved the ambiance of the restaurant. It was very convenient, especially when we were too full to finish the desserts and they packed them up along with disposable utensils to take back to the room with us. We also had breakfast here the next morning. We loved it all!

    In a word...terrible. Coffee was cold, fries undercooked, etc. I’m not sure how you can screw up a salad, but serving it on a narrow wooden plank and dousing it in dressing is a recipe for disaster. Don’t waste your time or money on this one.

    The restaurant had a special three course Xmas menu. I’m thinking of making this an annual tradition it was so delicious. The pumpkin ale bisque appetizer was unique and so tasty. Then two of us chose the breast of turkey slices, buttermilk mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy, and green beans, beautifully seasoned. And one friend had the prime rib entree perfectly cooked with mushrooms, polenta and Brussel sprouts. We took pictures; the dishes were so gorgeous. And each of us had the pumpkin and apple pie dessert with a dollop of cinnamon cream - again, just beautiful and delicious.
