We had a reservation for Brunch on Sunday May 15. Someone from Cashion's Eat Place called me on Saturday night and told me it was permanently closing. I appreciated the call and wish all who worked there and may have lost jobs good luck finding new ones!
Great place with amazing service!
We went for Saturday morning brunch and it was great. I had a hard time choosing what to get because the whole menu sounded awesome. I went with eggs Benedict with pork shoulder and was very pleased. The restaurant was nearly empty at 11 AM on Saturday which was weird. Definitely a good alternative for the super busy/loud brunches in Adams Morgan. The ambiance/decor of the restaurant was pretty cool too. It's not the cheapest brunch in AdMo but it's still a pretty good value.
Even if we had reservations, and there were multiple free tables in the restaurant, we were made to wait 20 minutes at the door without any explanation. After waiting all this time and trying unsuccessfully to get a staff member's attention, we just called it quits and left. We felt really unimportant and snubbed. If that's the sort of service they provide at the door, I don't know what sort of service they provide inside. Very disappointing and there's little chance I'll go there again.
My wife and I have been going to Cashion's off and on since the late 1990s, well before we even knew each other. We even went to the restaurant's 20th anniversary dinner. The food was very good as usual, and the restaurant is really still a good value to boot, but the service this time was mysteriously lacking. Our server, whom I believe is also the manager, was friendly, but he seemed to be the only one working in the dining room on a Saturday night. As a result, there were extreme delays in bringing out our appetizers, main courses, and wine, even though the restaurant was oddly only half full. Maybe some or all of the staff had quit or something similar, but we never received an apology or even an explanation. We'll chalk things up to a bad night and give Cashion's another shot at some point out of loyalty, but we'll make sure to leave extra time for the meal, just in case.
Really enjoyed the meal, in a comfortable setting
The service made me sad and uncomfortable. I asked questions and the responses from our server were rude and sarcastic. I never wanted to speak again. He was inattentive and made me feel embarrassed. The food was good though...
I have eaten at many of DC's best restaurants and I keep coming back to Cashion's whenever I come to town. It is definitely one of the best restaurants in the District. It is a "secret" place that locals frequent. I feel a bit "bad" writing such a positive review on OT, because this is the kind of place you don't want to have discovered by the "masses!" Our entire meal was fantastic, but the exceptional dishes included the Beet Salad, the Duck Breast, Hanger Steak and "J1" Sauce, and the truly crazy good Clafoutis desert. Ymmmmm. The wine list is small, but excellent, and the management and staff are incredibly nice and accommodating. I could eat dinner here every night!
Met a friend from way back who was in town on business for dinner. We had reservations, but the dining room was empty on a Tue. night, and so we sat at the bar. That was a fine place to be, and the bartender took good care of us.
So the place was kind of dead, but the food was very, very good. And I didn't care that the place was kind of dead, because I was catching up with my buddy.
The food was perfect brunch food, such a shame that their expresso machine was broken but otherwise a great brunch experience.
great food and service, good value. enjoyed the pork breakfast bowl
The ambiance was great and our server (whose name escapes me) was quite courteous and friendly, despite the fact that he was the only waiter avaiable among the 8 or 9 tables in the restaurant.
The food was creative and well prepared. The wine list was also nice, except that they ran out of the wine we started with. And the waiter was less than friendly. Perhaps he just had a bad day.
I am not sure why the restaurant was not more full. Everything we ordered was so good. I would not hesitate to return!
Get the honey butter biscuit b4 brunch, so good! Great food, high quality, nice ambiance. Looks like they have a cool bar, too. Would be a good date spot.
The restaurant was FREEZING. Literally someone at every table was wearing a winter coat and/or a scarf. We ordered the risotto for an appetizer and it wasn't fully cooked. The pasta was crunchy and hard in the middle. My mother ordered the fish (cod) for her entree and is was literally so salty she could not eat it. I like salty foods, and even I couldn't stomach it. I ordered the fried cauliflower and it was soggy and gross. Again, couldn't eat it. We have lived in the neighborhood for five year, and used the enjoy Cashions. Unfortunately, it has gone down hill and we won't be returning when there are much better options on the block.
Exceptional every time!
Post Theater, Valentine's Day dinner --- what a terrible way to end a night out. This formerly fine restaurant failed, top to bottom. The fixed price menu was uninspiring, without highlight, and (for $65) quite stingy. Worse, this restaurant as freezing -- cold enough that it should have been closed for the evening. Clearly they were having an HVAC problem, but you'd think management would off words or concern. Every diner was wearing top coats and jackets. We all just wanted to leave, but felt locked in by the fixed price commitment. Did management offer free wine or cocktails? No. Free coffee or tea? No. Apologies? Not from management, though our waitress did her best. The highlight? Knowing we need never return.
Valentine's evening dinner. Billed as a $65 per person chefs tasting menu but in reality, a choice of one of two appetizers, three main course choices and two desserts--no much if a "tasting".
One of the worst dining experiences we've had in years. Beginning with the fact that the restaurant was freezing cold--most diners were wearing their winter coats hats and scarves. While I understand that the weather was unusually cold, at least an acknowledgment from the host or server would have been appreciated.
Our first contact with our server was about 10 minutes after being seated, when he rushed up to the table and asked if we knew what we wanted to eat. "How about a drink first" we asked. "Um, ok" was the reply. It was downhill from there. Upon opening the bottle of wine we ordered, he immediately asked again if we "knew what we wanted to eat?" After ordering the steak,he turned to my companion--"medium rare" I said, "yes" was his one word reply. Did that mean that was how the chef was preparing the steak, of that he approved of my choice? I'll never know...
The very small appetizers were served, or should I say dropped on the table as the server rushed by to attend to another table. As for the main course, perhaps the food was hot (or at least warm) when it left the kitchen,but by the time it made its way through the dining room, everything on the plate was cool to the touch. And speaking of the plate, picture two small pieces of meat with a brown sauce, two brown potatoes each a bit smaller than a golf ball, and a smear of brownish purée that was gummy and slightly bitter--and cold. That's a whole lot of brown, I thought upon the plate being dropped in front of me. The parade of plates being sent back to the kitchen should have been an indicator of what I was in for--but by that point, I just wanted to get out if there and go find a fireplace to warm up. Dessert, thankfully, was supposed to be served cold.
I have been here for dinner a few times in the past and was impressed so felt comfortable booking a brunch on Valentine's Day. Boy was I wrong. Place was freezing cold. Patrons were all wearing their coats. Menu listed bottomless Bloody Mary on Saturday and Sunday but was told it was only Saturday. When I pointed what menu said was then told I had the wrong menu and that it was a holiday. Again pointed out it was on my wife's menu and it wasn't a holiday. Was told ok after a conversation with the manager. Turned out the Bloody Mary was almost tasteless. From then on food was ok and service was fine. Although wait staff kept dropping dishes and silverware while clearing and setting the table behind us. Will not be back.
