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.

Dined at Commissary DC last week for the first time to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. Marcus was attentive and took great care of us! My husband had a Spring salad, Crusty Salmon and a peach cheesecake. I had a Caesar salad, Chicken Milanese and a brownie with ice cream. Everything was tasty!

We enjoyed it so much, we went back tonight and brought 2 friends with us. Again, we were fortunate enough to have Marcus as our waiter. He was very busy tonight, but he still managed to take great care of us. His service was impeccable. And the food was again delicious. I had the Caesar salad again, but had Shrimp Scampi for my main course and it was amazing...even better than the Chicken last week! We all shared a tasty, creamy Mac N' Cheese and I topped off my meal with a double chocolate cake. One of our friends is Vegan and he found a good selection to choose from! We all enjoyed everything!

We will definitely be back!

My friend and I made a last minute reservation on a rainy day - it ended up being during happy hour! I got the grapefruit rose sangria and my friend got a beer, and we got fries to share. Service was great, my cocktail was delicious, and I would definitely come back here!

Wonderful meal! I had the jumbo wings, wedge salad, and we shared the king pao brussel sprouts which are my favorite. We rounded it off with the warm brownie banana split. It was the perfect evening and our waiter, Marcus, and Derek made sure we had a great evening

So lovely to be back at one of our favorite neighbhood haunts. Our server Devon had been working since 9am (we arrived at 6) and was professional, friendly, and full of great vibes. The Happy Hour menu was delicious and generous and drinks strong and tasty. Even though the capacity limit has been lifted in DC, the Commissary decided to be cautious in filling the indoor dining area for the comfort of guests and staff alike. This is what a real community-based, caring establishment looks like.

I came to Commissary for a meeting with a friend to go over some contracts. I was worried that I would be overstepping by asking for a quiet corner table but I was immediately accommodated. I had wonderful food, tasty cocktails and stayed for about two hours with no interruptions besides the wonderful server, Mariama, who took great care of us with a gentle touch. It was a great experience all around. I will absolutely be back!

I ordered scrambled eggs and politely asked several very specific questions to see if they would be truly scrambled or more just poured and ROTHE moved a couple times or cut up to look like pieces. I was assured they were truly scrambled. They were not. They were just chunks of cooked eggs.

If you go on Tripadvisor you see great reviews for the Commissary. Maybe I went on an off day but I was very disappointed. When we first arrived there was no hostess. I literally had to walk near the kitchen to let them know a line of people were waiting to be seated.

When our food arrive it was lukewarm at best. Our waitress looked overwhelmed. I really wanted to like this place because of the great reviews and brunch to me is one of my favorite meals, however my wife and I left very disappointed.
