Love this place- only wish they had a brunch on the weekends.
We found Dish last year and have come back several times since for a good pre-theatre restaurant within walking distance of the Kennedy Center. The valet parking is good until after the show. Restaurant staff is very attentive and the dinner menu offers a fixed price or a la carte. I always enjoy the mussels!
Great little place in Georgetown/Foggy Bottom. Food was delicious and service was terrific!
Excellent food. Great staff. I had the duck and enjoyed every mouthful.
The food was very good (we had the branzino special) and the service was great. They were very busy but our waiter was very attentive and checked on us just enough to makes sure each course was to our liking. Definitely recommend this place!
Wait staff was great. Very welcoming and made some excellent suggestions on both food and wine
The food, ambience and service were perfect at this great, neighborhood, intimate spot. Walking distance to the Kennedy Center!
The service was extraordinary and the food and wine very good with a nice variety of dishes. And, if you’re trying to make a curtain, the wait staff and kitchen will make sure you are served very quickly.
We were staying at the River Inn so this was super convenient. But also a place I’d go to anyway - delicious breakfast, attentive service, reasonably priced.
Had a delicious and quick meal before attending a show at the Kennedy Center. Service was great and my daughter thanks you for the apples (which were complimentary) from the hotel front desk right outside the restaurant. She’s a vegan & decided on apples for her dessert while the rest of us devoured our chocolate lava cake. Thank you!!!!!!
The food was very mediocre. They used the wrong rice in the risotto and the duck confit salad tasted like it didn’t have fresh ingredients in it.
Very good. Delicious Duck spring rolls. Fetuccine and chicken: also delicious. As were the beignets andj coffee.
Always a pleasant time eating dinner here prior to the Kennedy Center. Good food, terrific service.
Took out of town guests pre Kennedy Center. Steaks were very good as was the salmon. The only mediocre entree was the crab cake. Enjoyed the service,enjoyed the ambience of the dining room and loved the fact we could leave the car and walk to the Opera. Will definitely be back.
A regular venue for on Kennedy Center days but this visit was with a friend and no rush.
A great place for conversation, attentive but not intrusive service, and comfortable surroundings
Attentive great staff. Food is decent and fresh, but nothing to go out of the way for.
Need a staff/greeter to sit people or put a sign upfront to let customers know to pick their table. Jose did a great job as a server. Food was excellent. I like that the tea was served with a small teapot to keep it hot, not directly on the cup. Hotel reception staff were very cordial and helpful.
This is our go-to place for Kennedy center. The food is consistently good. Noted that the prices have been increased this last visit-still have a pre-theater menu, but that was also higher. Service is important and this visit there was definately a delay in getting our food. And we are talking salad. I think the server was new. Still a nice pre-theater experience and chance to relax and catch up.
This place has truly outstanding food and an excellent wine list. It has a neighborhood pub feel and half of the clients seemed to be regulars. The staff is very attentive and welcoming. Recommended very highly.
We went for a dinner with another couple. The food was a all excellent and the service was friendly. We had steak, risotto, pork chops, and pasta. It was all really good. Two of us had the pre-theater special, which gets you an appetizer, main course, and dessert , all for $40. The appetizers included a very nice butternut squash soup, and for dessert they had apple caramel beignets. And pre-theater is valid until 10:00. A very nice experience.
Good choice for dinner before a Kennedy Center performance.
This restaurant served very good food at a very reasonable price. We were able to grab a table right by the fireplace which bolstered the ambiance of the establishment, enabling us to have a very cozy dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends.
This is an excellent choice for anyone dining pre-theatre at Kennedy Center. The food and service were excellent, and prices are reasonable. Rom is nice with decent ambiance. It's hard to find good dining choices near the Kennedy Center, but this is a great find!
Once we found it (it's in a hotel and there was no sign for the restaurant visible on a rainy night) it was easy to use valet pkg. Service was excellent and got us to the Ken Ctr on time and meal was very good. I ordered the swordfish special and my friend got the prix fixe house salad, veggie risotto and choc cake. Everything was delicious including the recommended wine. Entrees alone are a little pricey IMO but the prix fixe was a good value.
I'm a regular at DISH for several years now and love everything about the place. It's understated, but has great food and service with a smart, attentive wait staff. Love going there and suggesting it to others.
Lovely before show dinner. Prompt and very good service.
The host was professional. We had a server who literally told us to hurry with ordering because she had to attend to other guests. I was taken aback by this and it made it harder to enjoy the evening.
I've been eating off-and-on in Foggy Bottom for nearly 40 years, and it has always been somewhat of a wasteland. No difference here. Service was friendly but seemed not to be familiar with the menu. We had the a prix fixe, so not that much to know, but itt got rung up as a la carte (for 50% more) which which prompted a 10 minute cancellation/re-do as we were rushing off to the Kennedy Center. The food itself was unremarkable; overall OK, but the fish and chips were thin fillets in a heavy batter, so the whole thing was rather dry after its time in the fryer.
We go to this restaurant very often for several reasons:
1. You can hear yourself talk (very rare in DC restaurants).
2. Good food reasonably priced.
3. Very good wine selection and knowledgeable staff.
4. Good location -- walk to Kennedy Center and Metro
5. Valet parking
6. They're usually very good at seating you on time
Quiet before the storm! Very nice quiet atmosphere and excellent service before 6:30 -- then it became really busy and louder. Nice find with good food!
This is our favorite restaurant for a pre-theater dinner. The food is consistently well prepared, the wines are well chosen, and the service is always attentive, to get us out on time. It is a hidden jewel.
The waiter was amazing-funny, charming, warm and inviting! He gave me a free glass of red wine that I loved (and I don't even like red wine)!
Awesome food, great service, 10/10 would recommend!
Great place for a pre or post dinner meal. Very diverse menu with a nice wine list and handcrafted drinks. The $40 three course pre-show menu has plenty of options and is a nice value. Food is prepared perfectly and the wait staff is friendly and helpful.
Dish has improved in its cuisine. We dined prior to a Kennedy Center performance and then took a short walk to the theater.
My boyfriend and I went on New Years and had a lovely meal, great wine, and awesome service. Would go again!
I was looking to try someplace different before a night with the wife and kids at the Kennedy Center. The restaurant had good reviews; so I thought we'd try it...and I'm so glad we did. The food was delicious -- large portions and tasty. My son and I had crab cakes; my wife had the scallops and my other son had the salmon. We are very satisfied with dinner (we did not get appetizers), wine/cocktails for me and my wife and the chocolate souffle. What also made for a memorable experience was our waiter, who was friendly and responsive and the ambiance -- we were happily seated near the fireplace on a cold night. We're definitely coming back.
Great place to eat before the Kennedy Center events. Excellent and well priced pre-theater menu. Small place- reservations required. Everything we ordered was delicious and the server was very attentive.
Wanted a light lunch before a performance at the Kennedy Center. Two of us shared the mac N cheese with bacon and the chef's salad. Greens were fresh, good balance of ingredients. Mac N cheese had cheese mostly on top, not much bacon. Perfect light lunch before a theatre matinee performance.
