American
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.

Excellent service. Located in Hyatt. Great staff. Good food, reasonable prices. Not crowded at lunch, but reserve if want main dining area, not bar area.

The food was delicious and the portion sizes were substantial. We did not get up from the table hungry. The staff provided us with wonderful surprise dessert, for we were celebrating the 51st anniversary of our first date.

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.

The breakfast buffet was very good. There are various options of food. They serve bacon, eggs, home fried potatoes, cereal, fruit, bagels, muffins, etc. I look forward to eating here again in the future.

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.

Our server was sweet and kind. Problem was is that she was the only one! The restaurant was severely under staffed! Sat at 6:40 and finished at 9:30. Food was not good. All in all, disappointing.

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.

Good chain hotel food service. Not a bad value considering its location. Breakfast off the menu is quick even though they offer, and/ or encourage the buffet.

Hotel dining. Brisk, easy. For some reason, that day it was about 65 degrees inside. Too cold for comfort. Not fine dining. Excellent buffet breakfast the next morning.

The service was very good and the brunch was delicious. We had been looking for a good place for a Mother’s Day brunch that really understands what a brunch should be, and we finally found it. We will made this a favorite for a family event.

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.
