Washington, D.C., has a restaurant for every preference—you name it; this city’s got it all. With no shortage of spaces to explore, D.C.’s culinary scene features one highlight inside Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, set within a five-story atrium. Taking its name from the Constitution, newly refreshed Article One – American Grill blends an unforgettable atmosphere and world-class cuisine, from the lavish breakfast buffet—host to an omelet bar, meats, flaky pastries, and fresh fruit—to the gourmet dinner options including meat dishes and freshly caught seafood to the special holiday brunches.

If you’re looking to host an event, our restaurant has two private dining rooms, available to host parties of up to 24 guests.

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!

We had a very positive experience at the restaurant! Food was prepared perfect. Service was fast and attentive. Desserts were delicious. I was staying at the hotel with a group who convinced us to stay in and give the restaurant a try. DC has many offerings so we rarely go out but I’m glad we chose to eat in this time!

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.

The restaurant menu has a lot of variety and delicious options. I was dining with my parents and we all have different eating styles/preferences. I was able to find a few different dishes I wanted to try and my parents were happy to have options, too.

I arrived promptly on time for my reservation and was greeted immediately. The restaurant is open in the lobby of the hotel, which has vast ceilings and noise was bouncing off the walls. There are no privacy walls for the restaurant so the lobby noise is shared with the restaurant. Open concept.

Our server was on top of it, which is always a great thing. My mom, who is an adamant Diet Coke drinker, did not see the bottom of her glass. My water was constantly filled. Food came out promptly and dishes were cleared quickly upon finishing our food.

The food was delicious and met expectations. Mom had the crab cake sandwich - which the slaw was not a favored addition in her opinion. My dad got the ribeye which was cooked perfectly medium well. And I got the crab Alfredo, which was good and filling. The apple pie a la mode was the dessert of choice to be split, and we were content. It’s a large slice so it was perfect for sharing. No complains about the food but also nothing to rave about.

Overall, I’d come back and try a new dish. I’m happy to know it’s a safe bet for my family and all of our preferences.

After a morning of exuberant t tours, we were looking for a family friendly lunch. Article One saved the day! We took an uber and we're surprised it was in the Hyatt Hotel but not disappointed. The server and chef were accommodating to our picky eaters. It's off the mall so not as crowded or noisy. It was just what we needed to refresh for the rest of our day.
