The food was great, and we really liked the atmosphere at Commissary DC. It was our first visit and we will definitely be back! Our dishes included the pork chop, crispy skin salmon, veg. rissoto, and lamb shank and all were delicious!

Was looking for multiple places across DC to host 18 people without having to pay a $2000 food and beverage min. This was the perfect place. The food was really good. Definitely recommend if you're looking to host 0-18 people.

Very casual-looking place but great food, great service. Not somewhere to take your boss but a fab place to go with friends. Or a date. Comfortable, with a great menu. Attentive service.

Good food but service wasn't great. Appetizer was brought to another table then wasn't brought until after our meals came. The food took forever and server didn't come by often.

It was nice. The fish and chips are amazing. I have really bad depression and have thought about ending my life. I enjoyed the staff.

Good food but be prepared for a loud crowded environment. We were seated along the edge in an area adjacent to low center seating. It was crowded and loud with a large group of friends. Made it difficult for anyone to get by without frequently bumping into my poor husband.

This was my first visit to Commissary DC and 2 friends joined me. We ordered and shared the Mambo wings for a starter. Then Fall Risotto, the Crab special, and kale cauliflower pizza for our meal. Everything was delicious, nice and light... well the crab dish was a little salty. The group could talk without yelling at each other, because the music was at great level. Ms. Natalie was attentive and pleasant. I'm glad the group agreed to try Commissary DC.

We had a great meal. They were accommodating to our food allergies and also recommended a very yummy mimosa juice mix. The pancakes are the best around! Definitely a place we'd go back to and recommend to others.

Cross contamination, they get fish in the same oil/container as everything else (non-seafood, fries, Brussel sprouts, etc).

Our server, Nat L., helped us out and she was awesome! She made some great menu suggestions for our group, was super attentive, and incredibly friendly! We had a great time and would be sure to recommend her when suggesting Commissary as a dining option. She deserves all of the gold stars!!! The food was delicious and there was a great vibe! We host group dinners in D.C. every now and then and we will be sure to return and look for Natalie L!

So happy to have found this cozy, friendly, and happening neighborhood spot for dinner. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Our server Natalie L was amazing. She was outgoing and welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the menu. We took her suggestion and got the brussel sprouts (which are to die for!) and she helped us navigate the menu as we have a few dietary restrictions. She handled our questions easily and knew how specific dishes were prepared which helped us choose our entrees. Everything we ordered was delicious. We hope to return soon to this great spot!

The breakfast taco eggs were dry

The Shakshuka was way too spicy to the point it didn’t taste good. I buy hot sauces online with ghost chili peppers and I’m saying this.

The huecos rancheros weren’t really seasoned either

There were several large groups and too few servers. Our reservations was for 6:30. We were both there by 6:40, couldn't order until after 7. We had an 8pm curtain and had to gulp down our food. which came close to 7:30.

We were a party of three, tried the salmon which was very good, fish and chips, good but both the fish and chips could have been a bit crispier, and the lettuce wraps, the stir fry chicken was very tasty, just a bit messy trying to wrap it with the lettuce. Our server was amazing, she was able to get up popcorn even though it is only on the bar menu, the popcorn is amazing! She checked back frequently, poured on wine.
We tried the cheesecake and the special dessert, a tre leche cake with cinnamon and raisons both were yummy. Over-all a great experience, perfect before a going to Studio.
