Great service and truly good food. I can see why it is ranked as #1 in Washington DC by TripAdvisor. We will definitely return and definitely recommend to friends. Lots of good comfort foods on the menu. Great desserts.

Everything was good but all the tables were sat right next to each other. We had kids right next to us. We swear, it is inappropriate to sit kids next to us. Also there is Covid, the whole restaurant was seated in one corner of the restaurant the rest was empty. :-(

I love coming to the Commissary DC. Your host Danmeran or Daniella (sorry can't remember her name) was outstanding. She made sure she kept us informed about our wait time, was friendly, helped other people, grabbed menus, delivered orders and etc.

Had dinner Friday night with a friend from out of town. The service was really slow, it took about an hour to get our appetizers. The food was good though, although they didn't want to make any substitutions for sides / accompaniments.

Good food and A varied menu. The atmosphere is cool but not too loud. Our appetizer and entrée’s came out together after a long delay. The waiter apologized and they fix the situation by not charging us for the appetizer.

Burger overcooked. Special was missing green beans as advertised, though server was kind enough to allow a replacement side salad after the meal. Small-ish portions.

Inside the restaurant was very loud. Made it difficult to have a conversation. The brussel sprouts were tasty. Had the crispy skin salmon as my entree and was underwhelmed. Small portion (too small for the price) and not much flavor. Our server seemed overly busy and somewhat annoyed.

It was an enjoyable night out with the family but I was left wanting more from the ambiance and vibe. My expectations were maybe too high based on reviews. Maybe breakfast is the thing; however, dinner at 6:30 was low energy. It was a Sunday after all but still wanted this to be a better night out. Food was good but also low energy. Service was good.

Our waiter was the best; we loved her, and it was delightful to sit outside on P Street which was bustling with people. Salads and appetizers were delicious, mains were just adequate. NY strip steaks were pretty mediocre. Probably shouldn't order steak at a place like Commissary. My bad.

Service was fine. There were four of us. Entrees included pizza, chicken sandwich and burgers. Wings for an app. The wings were tasty. That’s where the tastiness ended. Entrees were bland. I only the fries. Left hungry.

Been here once before and it was great. Yesterday we had two people wait on on us and we weren't sure who was our actual waiter. Waited 15 minutes for anyone to come up to our table and get a drink order. Husbands old fashioned sat at the bar for about 10 min before making it to our table. Had to call them over to put a dessert order in for our daughter, then those sat for a bit before someone finally brought them over to us. Food was good, and came out hot which was good.
