Dinner before the Kennedy Center performance, and walkable, with valet!
I knew I was in a good place when I bumped in a colleague, known for good taste, dining with their friends.
The hospitality was warm, welcoming, and gracious. Truly made the experience enjoyable. I think this is going to be my favorite! Thank you so much for a terrific, gentle ending to a busy week.
Great for pre-opera. Always get great service from the wait staff.
Two of the parties were pretty loud, but when they left, it was quite pleasant. Excellent food and service.
DISH is my favorite restaurant and venue to see friends over a nice meal.
It has a simple menu, consistently good, great wines, low key settings.
Amazing dinner nite. Service was over the top and the food was amazing: Lamb chops and ahi tuna over avocado, and great wine selection. Location Specially useful if you are attending the Kennedy Center.
We had a wonderful meal. Carlos was a fantastic waiter and also found some great wines for us to enjoy.
Great service, lovely food and ambiance, valet parking!
Absolutely made our evening at the Kennedy Center perfect instead of stressful.
Always a nice experience
Tables were small. waiter didn't know the menu that well. Food was ok.
Carlos and Dish consistently hit it out of the park when it comes to customer service, great food and convenience for theater goers. Great neighborhood venue with valet parking. Can't say enough good about it!
Food was delicious and the service was great! Our server was very friendly and attentive.
We have been going to DISH for over five years. We can not say enough about the service, and they go above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The recommended wines, and never hesitate to have us sample something new on the menu.
The chef always has great specials, and there is something on the menu for everyone. Its a great deal, with a prix fixe dinner menu and perfect when seeing shows at the Kennedy Center. They always ask if you will be seeing a show so you can get out the door in time, but now feel rushed.
Very quick walk from the Kennedy Center, and a great place to go before a show. This small restaurant is inside the The River Inn hotel, and has a great pre fixe dinner menu that is the perfect amount of food before a show. They have a good wine selection, the food is very good, and their prices are reasonable. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We went here years ago before a show and decided to come back, we were not disappointed. They open at 5pm, so if you are early for your reservation (like we were), you may have to wait in the lobby, or find a place to go for a spell before sitting down to eat!
Love this place!! We’ve been here twice before attending shows at the Kennedy Center. Both times the restaurant was super busy...but both times the staff handled everything beautifully! Lots of personal attention and great wine/food suggestions. Highly recommend!!
Good decent sit down food. OK adult restaurant—instead of the many, many takeaways, prepared dishes and sandwich joints.
perfect!we had a private table that was quiet and we were able to transact business over delicious food. I hope this is 50 characters!
Always great! Good place to have conversation and good food
What a jewel! The food and service are consistently outstanding, and the casual atmosphere is welcome. The regular menu is varied, and there are always interesting specials. We often go before the theater, and the staff always gets us out on time without having to rush at the end. I would recommend DISH+drinks for pre-theater dining and a lovely quiet dinner any other time.
Enjoyed our supper with a friend before the Kennedy Center. Food was very good. It got noisy and hard to talk but we still would recommend going and the bar tender introduced us to a delicious cocktail made with Leopold Bros aperitivo. Not too sweet and a great replacement for Campari.
This was our second stay at the River Inn and 2nd dinner at the restaurant. We loved our stay and dinner as much as we did the first time. Hotel staff are excellent, rooms are spacious and comfy, and dinner was absolutely delicious. Very convenient for us to walk to Kennedy Center and Georgetown which is why we select this hotel. We will be back!
Everything we had was fabulous! Very small restaurant but great menu. Walking distance from Kennedy Center.
Great service. Very decadent food and the ambience of this little restaurant will leave you feeling very relaxed
Had such a lovely time at Dish tonight. Keith (I think the owner) recommended a great wine we wouldn’t have normally chosen and absolutely loved it. We just noshed on appetizers and they were delicious and the tuna tartar and ceviche were particularly fresh. Would recommend to anyone!
Everything was just okay. The host doubled as our waiter and would ask how was our dishes before we had a chance to try the food. Nothing was memorable.
Excellent service and nice food before theater. I wish they did something to make the place a little less noisy - I understand the concept of 'energetic', but it makes it hard to have conversations.
Great food, valet parking, owner/operator very fun and engaging. Pre theatre dinner and quick service to be on time. Thank you!
Delicious food and lots of it. It's a small space and it was very noisy. We were seated at a table near the bar, and thus were sitting on high chairs, which I didn't like. Personable and attentive server. The apple beignet dessert was amazing. Highly recommended!
Have been going to Dish and Drinks for several years.
delicious & excellent service and considerate/efficient staff. Since we were in lunch-meeting we needed a quiet table to hear one another, which is not always easy in Dish's available space, but your staff directed us to a good table - we were able to hear one another!
Excellent food and kind service. Lovely people. Asked to charge my phone, no problem.
We very much enjoyed the service, wine, meals, and ambience. Also I had forgotten to print my tickets to an event at the Kennedy Center and the registration desk at the hotel kindly printed it out for me and brought it over to our table. Date nights are few and far between, so a good time is definitely appreciated (and so needed!). We'll surely be back!
Food was good. The drink I ordered not done especially well. It had a funny taste
Memorable dinner and evening! Carefully crafted cocktails, sumptuous red, delicious starters (ceviche, Greek salad and tuna tartare stood out), perfectly prepared mains (ahi and char were exceptional), and lovely desserts, all professionally served by Carlos and D+D team! We look forward to our return!
Bartender and waiter were both very friendly and knowledgable. Food was great, drinks were great, fun atmosphere
A perfect spot for dinner before going to the Kennedy Center. Service was divine!
Good food. Service of food a bit slow, but we were a group of 8. Burger ordered medium rare came medium well.
A neighborhood gem! Keith will help you find a good bottle of wine at an affordable price, which is rare in the current restaurant scene.
Great service by Carlos and Keith! The food was amazing.
Excellent food, friendly, accommodating service. The gazpacho soup was wonderful - nice flavors and texture.
Sat at our favorite table and enjoyed excellent service. Whether choosing fixed price or ala carte, the meals are delicious and great value.
