Everything about Chaplins is incredible. Great vibes, incredible service, super safe, and the ramen is delicious. Highly recommend for a chill happy hour on the patio.
This restaurant was terrible in so many ways, including ambience, service and food. Starting with drinks, one drink (just a martini) wasn’t made right and the second came out after dinner was served. The « cure » cocktail looks like a a college party punch drink with a flaming tree of rosemary sticking out the top. I wasn’t sure if we should drink it or use it to scare away evil spirits! Food was just awful. How do you screw up edamame? Pork items had so much fat you had to have mining gear to find the meat. We paid (unfortunately) and left after taking a few bites. Very very disappointing.
There’s no place like Chaplins… With spacing of the tables you feel like you’re in your own private area yet you can feel the energy of others around you. And everyone who works there is always accommodating.
My mom had a great time on Morher’s day and that’s all that mattered at that time.
Paul and Jake are very good at their jobs
I heard about Chaplain’s about a year ago and finally got here last week and loved it. The selection of food, the way it was prepared, the vibe and service were all great and I plan to go back.
Chaplin's serves delicious, authentic ramen and the cocktails are excellent. The food and drinks are cleverly named, and the theme of the restaurant comes through in the physical restaurant and decorations, food, and drinks. The Chaplin ramen is dark due to the nori, giving it a black and white look, just like the Chaplin silent films. The staff are very friendly and provide excellent service! If you sit inside, it can get a little loud, but outside is quieter and still has a great atmosphere!
Always excellent noodles and great service. Plus pet friendly patio with water & treats.
We loved Tim!
Excellent ambience and service! Really enjoyed my time.
Good for a drink and a snack. Not dinner or lunch
Good food and good vibes. Little slow on service but it was crowded.
Great happy hour specials and delicious food! The Cure cocktail is a favorite.
Always delicious, and great people watching from the patio!
We always have an awesome experience every time we dine here
Love this place every time!
Great place to meet friends for a yummy meal and good cockstails!
The food, service, and ambiance was wonderful. I will definitely go again.
Great food, service and vibes!! I love coming to chaplins. The Chaplins A.S.S. Is the best And also the fried dumplings! Yummy
very efficient covid procedures that made us feel safe
A lovely date night and even dog friendly. Nice cocktail that was large! (I got The Cure). The fried chicken was awesome - wish they served it with more sauce. we got two bowls of ramen. Both were quite good. The Soyou was nice but wish it was more flavorful or had more salt. The Tan Man was quite good too.
Nice outdoor seating and each table has its own heater.
Wontons were decent. Service not the best. Good outdoor ambiance.
Overall good experience
I like the food at Chaplin but did not enjoy myself this time: I came there on a date and they sat us by an open door on a cold night. When we asked the waiter if he could kindly close the door he said “No”, and when we asked for an explanation he said “just because”. That left a bad taste in my mouth, particularly in these times when we are trying to support restaurants by dining in.
Great ambiance and service
Amazing server! Gave us great recommendations so the food was amazing, and above and beyond customer service. Seated right away even though we showed up an hour and a half before our reservation so the hostess was very accommodating on a busy night which is impressive. Overall 10/10
Great atmosphere, the food was incredible!
Interesting cocktails, great food and fun staff. Can fully recommend this place for dinner.
Best ramen I’ve had in DC this far
Great food..music is a touch too loud making it hard to socialize.
Good food!! Heaters!!
If you like ramen you’ll love it here. Cocktail named “The Cure” is deadly good
Good meal, good service
The food is chaplains was so delicious. I enjoyed my time and I took my roommate who Was trying Ramen for the first time in DC. I had an experience at a Ramen place the other day and I did not like it. I knew I had to be remedied so of course I want to chaplains to get the taste that I was looking for, in which I did. The service was OK, I have had better service, but given the pandemic I guess I would say most waiters have to stay away from their tables a bit more than usual just because of what’s going on. Other than that, it was fantastic.
My only recommendation is blinds. We sat at the window near the front and the sun was painful. Felt myself becoming overheated.
Great cocktails and some creative twists on ramen. Great outdoor space in on a cozy corner.
One of my absolute favorites. The service staff let us put 2 tables across from each other to stick with covid protocols, but we were still able to feel like we were all together. Food is great. Drinks are great. The server even gave us complimentary shots because it was my birthday. 10/10
Made a reservation in the morning. Got sat quickly for an evening dinner. All dishes were served hot, quick and flavorful.
