'To those of us who work a few blocks away, the opening of Barcode, in the former Fourth Estate Grille space near 17th and L streets NW, qualifies as big, huge, stop-the-presses news (at least as far as our happy hour options are concerned). Gone is the casual bar-and-grill vibe of the old place; in its place comes LED lighting, brushed steel surfaces, dark-wood paneling, lounge seating and communal banquettes. A set of turntables stand by the front door, as if waiting for a passing DJ to set them in motion. It makes sense to see them, because the bar is run by the DC Hospitality Group, which also oversees Lima and UltraBar.' - Washington Post. Come enjoy an after work drink, stay for dinner and enjoy the scene.

Great restaurant after work or anytime. We were there on a cold wintery night and it really met the need for a warm meal!

The food is always great and the servers are very cordial. However the food takes an extremely long time to be delivered. It is not a good spot for a lunch hour but great for after work happy hour when time is not a concern.

The women's restroom was disgusting. The service and food were just okay. I wouldn't go back.

My friend and I drove from out of town to enjoy a night here. We called 2 hours prior to reserve a table and was told that we could not reserve after 10pm because there was an event going on there but she said that we were still welcomed there. 5 minuets after arriving and paying a cover charge, we both noticed that the place was full of individuals of the same gender. This sparked a concern for us so we asked one of the workers what type of event it was and he replied in a laughing manner “it’s a gay event”. No shade to the LGBTQ community but as two single women, a gay event was the least of our expectations. You would have thought that the young lady on the phone would have considered explaining exactly what type of event it was or even the bouncer could have said “Ladies are you aware of the type of event this is?”.. NOPE, there was no consideration at all. They just took our money and let us be bamboozled. After asking for a refund of our cover charge and our drinks that we were unable to finish, they told us no we could not have a refund. We were so annoyed smh. I am giving this establishment a bad review because there just was no consideration at all and they did not assure us that this would not happen again. All we wanted was to enjoy good food, drinks and music smh.

Barcode is always the go-to place in the area for a quick lunch bite with friends. It's consistent food, the service is great (my glass is never less than half full) and the service is prompt.

Nice casual dining experience - food was surprisingly good (steamed mussels in wine particularly delicious)! Beer & wine at reasonable prices! Lobster role was very good - they claim to get fresh seafood daily and it tasted like it! Overall nice experience - not too flashy but good stuff,

It was a mix up with the table, but the food was Bomb. Worth $40, unlike a lot of these "brunches".
