Had dinner with a cousin while in DC for a conference. Saw the reviews for Commissary on Trip Advisor and decided to try it. Great service, casual atmosphere. Had the cocktail special which came with a butternut squash tart- delicious! Chose the sides with a salad for dinner- wish I had known that “root vegetables “ were mostly potatoes. Other than that- super.
This is my favorite restaurant in DC. Never disappoints.
Everything here was spectacular! From the food, to the prices, to the ambience and the service (our waitress Natalie was great!). We had the breakfast for 2 deal which was $55 & included coffee, a bottle of champagne + 2 juices, & an entree each. I had the breakfast tacos & my girlfriend ordered the huevos rancheros... SO GOOD! You pretty much make your own mimosas, which we didn't mind at all given that we prefer more champagne over juice in our mimosas anyway. Overall great experience, & I can definitely say I'd be a regular here if I wasn't from out of town.
This place was awesome for the family. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The kung pao sprouts were to die for. They were very accommodating of one of our party who is gluten free. Their soup special was a chicken stew which was perfect for a cold night. Kids meals were great. Would highly recommend.
I was intrigued because The Commissary got a high average review for breakfast and it was pretty close to where we were at the time . We were a group of seven on a Friday for brunch. We were able to get a table which was great. It was not that busy at that time 11am-12pm.
Staff were was great. Service was very good. Food was pretty good but not necessarily best for breakfast. The fall frittata could have used more seasoning and the veggies were a bit under cooked in it. Same for the potato latkes, a bit undercooked.
Gluten free blueberry pancakes were pretty darn good I have to say.
Chorizo breakfast tacos were pretty good also.
Great brunch spot! Healthy and comfort foods avsilable. Cozy with great service!
Love the ambiance! Our waiter Zack (?) was attentive and super sweet, made great recommendations and was an all around great server! Food delish, we’ll def be back! 👍🏼👍🏼
Great food but slow service
Service was fantastic! Food was really great! The samir cocktail was also very yummy!
Great brunch spot. Love the overall food and atmosphere. Current management is spot on. Bloody Mary's are on point! This is officially on my top "go to" spots for weekend meet ups with the besties. Can't wait for the Brittany Brunch in December!!!
Great option when absolutely nothing else is available.
Very crowded and very noisy. We have come here several times before going to studio theater. We had a 6:15 reservation and our order was taken about 20 minutes after we sat down. We ordered an appetizer and mail course and the waitperson said that the app would be out on a te minutes. 20-30 minutes later we had received neither app nor main and we spoke with a manager. We again were told that everything would be out shortly and they would bring it all together. I said that we were told that our app would be served first; about 20 minute earlier, but since it was getting late, to bring everything together. We had lemon honey chicken—too sweet, and the pork chop entree, which was vercooked and not very juicy, as requested. The Brussels sprouts app was also cloyingly sweet. To their credit,!we were not charged for the late-delivered sprouts. Not a great dinner. That said, the waitperson was don’t the best that she could. As I told her, she wasn’t dong the cooking.
Great food and experience as always. Be mindful that service can be a bit slow on weekends as they are often quite busy. Brunch/breakfast are their strong suits. Advisable to take taxi/Uber/Lyft as parking can provide difficult.
We spur of the moment chose Commissary and were not disappointed. For starters we had hummus and it was good... Our entrees though were amazing! Both sandwiches were gone & the sides -salad and fries- disappeared quickly too. We were in a cozy romantic corner and were still able to view the warm and inviting restaurant. Definitely a hip place and I felt slightly under dressed (it was a Saturday) but that’s what you get when traveling! Ten out of ten would recommend. My only tiff was that for being a higher price point place the service felt Applebee’s-ish.
I was very disappointed with their Sunday brunch. While our server was very friendly, our group of 6 had to track him down several times to order. Their drinks were very watered down and the food was mediocre at best- honestly you could find better food at IHOP. I'm not sure if this was a fluke, but again, we were highly disappointed based on other ratings.
The Commissary was really great! We had a great meal! The ambiance is very chill and cool. Very comfortable with a good menu and wine selection. Our waitress was so sweet and knowledgeable. At her recommendation we ordered the Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts. They were amazing! I would definitely go back. It was a really good time.
We ate at Commissary twice on our visit to DC. They had a varied menu and a friendly atmosphere. Food was well prepared and tasty. They only got three stars on service because our first table service was excellent but our second time our waitress was non-existent.
Great food and service! Would definitely recommend!
Slow service on every item. Mixed up billing. Restaurant was only one third full. Took 90 minutes for dinner for 5
The risotto was delicious and so was the Mac and cheese 😊
Cannot fault the food and the gentleman who seated us and came over was most helpful alas the waitress could have been better. Also mains came while still eating starters!!!!
Is this an American habit? Although it’s never happened before and we visit USA every year.
We sat at the bar and the service was great! Our burgers and sweet potato fries were fantastic. We just moved to the neighborhood and will definitely be back!
Best place for breakfast. Omelettes are excellent and service was spot on.
Very noisy. Food was ok/ average but the service was very slow - one appetiser arrived seconds before the entree and the other -soup!- had to be cancelled as it had not appeared before the entree was served. The waiting staff did apologise though and gave us a trio of dessert tasters on the house.
We had a nice family dinner here during a recent trip to DC. The mixed drinks were tasty. We all enjoyed our dinner, but we especially liked my husbands dinner, the steak frites, we especially love chimicurri sauce, so it was the dish we all enjoyed tasting. We shared the dessert called sugar rush. It was a sampling of a brownie ala mode, cheesecake and peanut butter pie. It was delicious!
I loved that I was able to make a large reservation for 15 people on the app
The drinks weren’t that great, they tasted funny to me I brought two drinks and didn’t finish either of them
Great menu and fantastic service. Coffee was burnt and stale. For a place this good the coffee should be equivalent to the high quality of food.
Was at Commissary on Saturday night with my husband and 2 children, under the age of 15. We were visiting Washington for 2 nights and decided to try Commissary. The food was fantastic! The ambience was amazing! And our server BLAKE was simply the best! Can't wait to go back the next time we are in town!
Nice food and service, but too noisy for families.
The servers were amazing and took such good care of us. We came for brunch after a bachelorette party weekend and everything was perfect.
My wife and I had a wonderful time. The food read delicious and the waitstaff was phenomenal. I will definitely be eating here again.
Commissary was a great place to brunch with friends. It’s open and comfortable. All of dishes were delicious and I appreciated healthier food options. It’s perfect for hanging with old friends.
I just loved the over all feel, the service was great along with the food and drinks!!
Nice brunch spot. The pancakes are fantastic. Definitely a fun spot to meet up with friends and family. Service was prompt and friendly.
We always try to meet out of town friends there. Perfect Sunday brunch
Good breakfast...fun atmosphere. Good location. Good place for our large group.
Went with a big group and the server was great. Food was solid and it had a nice ambience.
The food was excellent. Service outstanding. Over great experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended when visiting Washington DC
Nice food. Excellent service . Great atmosphere. Easy to find. Reasonable prize
