I've gone twice in the past month and it's been great both times. Great food, nice service, and a comfy atmosphere.

As usual Commissary food was delicious. Tasty bloody mary too :) Highly recommend it for brunch or breakfast any day of the week. Love the vibrant atmosphere they have and the patio seating. The server was a bit distracted it seemed but overall great experience.

Enjoyable, casual fare. Great for lunch. I have some food allergies and they were very accommodating as the server came back to tell me something had gluten in it and we found a replacement.

Third time we’ve been there, my wife likes the gluten free pancakes, and the things I’ve had are mediocre at best. Had the potato pancakes this most recent visit and I found them tasteless and probably made prior and re-warmed.

The food was delicious especially the pancake platter with gluten-free pancakes! Our waiter was slow and pretty much nonexistent but the other wait staff stepped in and helped! Great brunch spot.

It was very good but not “excellent.” I enjoyed it for a large party because of how expansive the food menu is, the very reasonable price point, and location — but I think there are better restaurants in DC. Neither the food nor service blew me away. I would come here again with another large group or for happy hour. But I would not go here if my parents came in town or for a date night.

We had a large group of 10+ people - including kids - and Commissary was super patient and accommodating. People coming from all different places and at slightly different times. We had a relaxing (believe it or not with 5 kids and an infant) and enjoyable meal.

My friends and I had a great time at Commissary! The food was excellent, and the manager even came and gave us a free glass of Rose. The space is very comfortable and we were taken care of well. We will definitely be back!

We visited Commissary before a movie and were very happy with the quick service and fun atmosphere! We originally picked the spot because of the fair prices and plenty of vegetarian options. The risotto was delicious and I strongly recommend adding salmon to it if you eat fish, very flavorful. Overall would highly recommend as a upscale casual spot with great drinks and fairly priced food!

Commissary has a great brunch vibe- nice size space, good food (perfectly cooked potatoes), good Bloody Marys, very diverse crowd.
In other words, wish I lived in DC!

The only thing I did not like was it took 2 hour for dinner with a party of 12 and 2 Servers. The Servers were very nice and kept the drinks full. The Chicken was good but some people in the party got the Lamb and the Pork Chop and said both were salty.

I dined alone at a corner table, a great vantage point for watching people come and go. The server was very attentive but not overly so. I had the veggie burger patty melt style and side salad. The food was fresh and the portions were big. I took half of the sandwich home.
I appreciate the warm ambience, comfortable to dine alone and definitely great for gathering. I’ve done both.

The food here is good, but the neighborly atmosphere is what makes it unique. It is warm and welcoming and feels like a familiar place to return to.

Seated right away. Loved the decor and the seating. Dim but not dark. Great food for a great price. Filet medallions were cooked perfectly; highly recommend! Also, a good app is the hummus and grilled pita. Good service, food came out quickly but not too quick so we could enjoy our appetizer. No rush to leave either.
