EDGAR Bar & Kitchen at The Mayflower Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Located in The Mayflower Hotel, Edgar's is a nice surprise. The menu is not extensive but has very good selections. We had the crab cakes and the seafood risotto - both were excellent. The apple galette for dessert was also excellent. The dining area is well separated from the bar, snd therefore has a very pleasant atmosphere. Pricing reasonable. Recommended.
The service was so bad I don't know where to start. There were only 2 other tables occupied on Saturday night at 8. No one noticed us until a Barback went looking for the server. Ignored once we ordered. To get water we had to go get the pitcher from serving cart in the other room and no one noticed it on our table. Couldn't find a manager until the next morning. Food was ok. We had salads and cheese tray and 1 glass of wine each ($75). I struggled with leaving a tip because it really was a server issue but gave in. I thought that the reviews were skewed but they're not. A shame because this could be a real gem inside the mayflower.
Very strange. Another party and I waited at the host stand for over ten minutes without a hint of anyone who might seat us. We finally sat ourselves, which seemed to confuse the waiter. At the end of the meal, asked for the check five times before it was brought to us.
We had dinner here our first night in Washington as we stayed in the Mayflower hotel. We had the calamari to start which was delicious and a very generous portion. We ordered the veal, chicken, and bass. While the flavour of the bass was good, both my mother in law and I ordered it and both pieces were very dry and over cooked. Would still recommend to others as we had an enjoyable experience.
Requested to be seated at a quiet location for a business meeting a day before the lunch. When we got there the place was empty except for one table where people were drinking and talking out loud. Of course, we were seated right next to this table. Barvo Edgar!
The hostess had a bit of difficulty finding our reservation. She was not very welcoming. We were seated at a table that wobbled from side to side. No wine list was provided, so we borrowed one from a nearby table. Service was acceptable, but the place was very noisy, so much so that conversing was a bit of a challenge.
We had wine, a cheese plate, and a crab cake appetizer. Food was good.
Went to dinner here before a magic show in the hotel. Our server was prompt, but not very friendly or personable. Dinner entrees are on the pricey side and portions are small for what you get. I got the veal chop and hubs got the rib eye. His rib eye was the smallest I've seen served in a restaurant. Overall, the food was just ok.
I ate at the Edgar Restaurant several times over the course of my recent stay at the Mayflower Hotel. The food was actually quite good- fresh and always well-prepared. Presentation was attractive and the portions were more than adequate. I had the mussels twice. They were done in a red sauce and were excellent and fresh. Their Spring Pea Risotto entree was a huge portion. The rice was creamy and well-seasoned with Asiago cheese.
Breakfasts were great. I had French toast and bacon, and the bacon was top quality. The brioche bread for the French toast was delicious., although I feel it could have been soaked a little longer as it was fairly dry in the middle. The breakfast buffet, while expensive, had a wonderful selection of favorite foods that never looked "tired"or old.
Service in this restaurant was always courteous and prompt. The various seating arrangements allowed for privacy. The acoustics were excellent!
It adds a great deal to a hotel stay if the in-house restaurant consistently serves good quality, tasty food. The Edgar is solid in that regard and I had five meals there during my four days in DC.
I should mention that the Edgar is also open to the general public.
Unfortunately, the noise level from the bar, which was packed several rows deep, was horrible. It was impossible to enjoy our food; we couldn't wait to leave. The restaurant needs to keep the people who are dining only in one area of the premises and not allow just the drinkers to spill over into the eating area. They should be in the front of the restaurant near the bar.
