Commissary DC Ratings and Reviews
A great place for brunch and easy dining. I took my mother who has a more traditional palate, and both she and I found things that we liked - she got an eggs benedict, and I got a spicy chorizo breakfast bagel - we both were happy. It's kind of a boisterous place - so not quiet - but it wasn't so loud she couldn't hear. All in all, a good pick.
My first time eating at the Commissary. Had dinner before fireworks on July 4th. Everything was wonderful from the first interaction with the staff when we walked in the door, to the service (extremely friendly and helpful - her name was Delaney) to the food (we ate it all). I would definitely recommend The Commissary for any and every occasion.
I love this place! The fact that for $55 you can get 2 coffees, 2 breakfast entrees and a WHOLE bottle of champagne (and 2 juices) is just happiness! The have about 4 different juices to pick from but my favorite is the mango! I recommend the Open-Faced Sourdough Sandwich which is an open face sandwich with 2 eggs, pesto, ham, Swiss and arugula with home fries.
Fun, delicious and great atmosphere! We brunched there as the last stop on a fun birthday weekend celebrating our son's 21st birthday. We had the best waiter - sarcastic in fun, entertaining way - he got us! Location is perfect, the vibe is great and the food is really good! I've only had sunday brunch there, but will plan on returning when we visit again for other meals. Definitely a place to put on your list! Thanks!
Great gnocchi in a delicious cream sauce. I added a salmon for protein, nice cook on it. My colleague had the pork loin which was good too. Wine glasses are really small, they felt awkward and meant more for juice rather than wine. High energy place, fun and quirky wait staff, Peter was a trip. One complaint was it really warm in the restaurant. Crank up the A/C please.
our waitress was nice, but the service was very slow. I ordered salmon to be cooked well done and it came out almost raw. The waitress was nice and took it back to the kitchen, but as stated earlier service was very slow-I finished the rest of my meal before I got my salmon back. It was my first visit. I would give it a second chance.
We took the family to Comissary DC after a day at the Smithsonian Zoo. What a great place to unwind. We went early (the zoo closes at 5:30) and they easily seated us. The food we had was tasty! The sweet potatoe fries are great,, the fried chicken is delicious, and the salad one person had was other worldly! There is a great salad selection. The only thing that was not top shelf was the mussels special for the evening. The mussels were fine, but they were served with chorizo and the flavors didn't meld.
Overall, the food was excellent and the experience was great. Surprised that our reservation wasn't in their system, given that I had a confirmation call from the restaurant earlier in the day, and I called the restaurant myself to confirm. Plus, it was on the Open Table app! Odd. Luckily they were very accommodating and seated us anyway.
A little crowded and loud on our visit, but literally every good DC restaurant was crowded after the National Equality March. The menu was very fun and festive, and the food was great. Service was a little slow, but with how busy it was, that's completely understandable. All of the order was correct, and we were never left without refills or attending to for too long. Definitely great for brunch, they have a great selection of brunch drinks.
My friends and I went for a brunch before the DC Pride Parade and festivities. I was lucky enough to get one of the few remaining reservations at Commissary (which is located on the parade route). Despite being packed to the gills with patrons, our server was lovely, competent, and never rushed us to get extra turnovers on her table. They were festively decorated, had fun drink specials, and as per usual delicious food. Commissary is definitely at the top of my list of go-to spots.
This place is a hidden gem in DC. About 1.2 mile walk north from White House is well worth it. Small frontage so look carefully. Food was amazing and staff very attentive. My wife, a self acclaimed food snob, was giddy over this place. Will be on my D.C. List every time I visit!
The wait staff are pleasant, attentive and helpful. The restaurant was busy on Saturday morning but staff were readily available. They have a vibrant outdoor seating area that's busy with lots of passersby. The breakfast was ok. I didn't find the turkey sausage to be flavorful. My blueberry pancakes were not as done as I'd like and my husband found his plain pancakes to be dry. It may have been an off day for pancakes. Entrees ordered by people sitting nearby looked delicious!
WE were some of the oldest people in the place but they took that into account and seated us in a little nook that allowed us great views of outside and the other diners but out of the middle of busy night spot. The food and cocktails were outstanding and a great value for the prices which by DC standards were very modest.
Would go again any time I am in DC. Was worth the metro ride to this neighborhood. Fun to walk around before and after a 7pm summer dinner.
