Average food. Cool place.

I had chicken sandwich. It was a small chicken breast, piece of lettuce, one thick slice of tomatoes, and a bun. $12.

Went for the Beyonce themed brunch and had a great time! They gave me the wrong meal at first but were then very apologetic and gave me my correct meal quickly. In addition to that we got a free drink on the house which we didn't ask for they just gave to us which was nice.

Overall great staff and the themed brunches are an amazing idea especially for a fun girl's brunch!

The food was not amazing but was reasonably priced for a DC eatery. The Beyoncé themed brunch was a fun idea and ensured many customers will be back for the next event. Did not like that we were asked to leave our table to make room for more customers and nobody sat down after us. Tacky move by the management.

They also have a bar and special coffee available. We ate breakfast at this place 2 times.

The Restaurant is supplied by a private farm in Southern Maryland. The Kung Pao sprouts were outstanding as was the Red Curry Chicken Stir Fry (if you enjoy spicy). Servers were very attentive and friendly. The entire dining experience was great and we will visit again.

We were a family party of 8, all having just arrived, to celebrate my daughters wedding for that weekend. We needed something close to our hotel. This restaurant was a great choice! The food and the service were wonderful. I had made the reservation 3 weeks ahead of time online. We were very pleased!

Last week we had a large party of 12 people for a birthday get together. The manager Heidi was extremely accommodating and personable, we were able to have a fun night filled with wonderful food and delicious drinks. The staff went above and beyond with their service. I would recommend Commissary to anyone looking for a genuine restaurant with a happy hour menu that is unbeatable, we cannot wait to go again!

This was our second visit to Commissary. We really enjoyed the food the first time. Our meal started off great. The lentil soup was yummy, the kung pao brussel sprouts were delicious. My husband and I split the beet gyros. Unfortunately they came without any sauce. Just cold beets and arugula in a pita. They said they would bring out the sauce, but that never happened. When we asked about it they said making the sauce was a low priority since most people have gyros for lunch not dinner. We asked for any readily available sauce and selected a lemon vinaigrette. It too never arrived. The waitress brought us a free dessert which was great, but if the restaurant couldn't prepare the dish correctly, they should have told us in advance and we would have selected something else.

Food quality mixed, very good to average. Brussels sprouts, fries and salmon very good, but veggie burger and pizza poor. Most impt breaded chicken bone found in fries served to our vegetarians and waiter didn't seem concerned at all. No accommodation offered.

Good menu options, especially good for vegans and vegetarians. Food and drinks were pricey, and just ok. The burger we ordered as medium, came out well done. Our server seemed very annoyed to be serving us from the start; however, the server helping the table next to us seemed super nice and welcoming. Seems like we just got a bad one. We might give this place a try again, but not at the top of our list.
