Lively bar atmosphere with very good food.
Waited over 15 minutes for anyone to show up at the table. Was not busy- just poorly managed.
Outstanding burger and fries -- would definitely return.
It was a birthday lunch, and the Edgar Bar brought the birthday lady a surprise dessert that was small seeming until she and the rest of us dug into thick chocolate heaven, plus a strawberry as a nod to our five fruits and vegetables a day. Marvelous unhurried service. Just what you would expect at the Mayflower.
Service and food here were great. The only disappointment was that we may have been dining during a shift change, because we were rushed through our meal and checking out. I took half my sandwich to go because I felt so pressured to leave. The meal started well, but I did not feel like I could have a relaxed experience.
I was meeting a friend who was staying at the hotel for a conference; Edgar's was a great choice for lunch (very nice, wonderful salmon), but if you are driving there (which I realize, most people don't ...) the PARKING is your main issue. I made a creative payment deal with the bellhop to avoid a $34 charge to park there for lunch for 1.5 hours.
Great service and environment
Beautiful surroundings and good food here.
We were seated at a table by the window. The ambiance was lacking. It would be nice if they had lights on the candles and maybe some drapery by the windows. Just a very cold setting.
We only went there because it was close to DC Improv. The food however was very nice and service was good
We were staying at the Mayflower Hotel so ate at their restaurant twice during the visit - on a Friday evening and on an early Sunday afternoon. In both cases the food was fine and the service pretty indifferent. Friday evening happy hour crowd was vibrant and pretty loud. Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere was more laid back and relaxed.
The menu has very few options for those with dietary restrictions. My wife has a seafood allergy and cannot eat many of the dishes on the menu. Likewise a vegan or vegetarian diner will have sparse options. She did like the ravioli dish she had for one meal.
The salad I ordered on Sunday, they brought me the wrong one. I asked for a cobb with no bleu cheese and no tomatoes. What they brought me was basically a salad with grilled chicken I didn’t ask for, and some shavings of cheese like you might find on a Caesar salad. The second time they brought it back, it looked like the same bowl but they had just added some items to it - hard boiled egg, etc. still had the chicken it shouldn’t have had. Now it had tomatoes. Still don’t think it had bacon. They brought me the ranch dressing with the first salad, took it away, then didn’t bring me any dressing for the second. I asked for some ranch dressing when they came back to check, what they brought me might’ve been ranch, but it was chunkier than I expect ranch to be - more like bleu cheese. I didn’t feel like dealing with it, so I picked at it a bit, but was unimpressed. Kinda ruined my appetite dealing with an uncertain dressing that was either bleu cheese or spoiled ranch with chunks in it. In any case, I expect better from the fine dining restaurant attached to a high-end hotel in a major city. We’re going back in a few months for another visit and I expect we’ll find other dining options.
