Filomena is perfect for the business luncheon or the elegant candle light dinner.
I'm not a local but wish i was... what a wonderful place! Old school Italian food that is excellent, friendly and great wait staff, and the most festive restaurant ive ever been to!
Perfect way to celebrate the holiday season! The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful!
Commemorate birthday of husband who passed away
The restaurant is crowded and noisy. Must make reservations. The food is authentic and the experience is exciting especially around Holidays. The decorations really impressed my children!
The food was excellent, the servers very good, but they were running significantly behind on reservations and seated us 30 minutes after our reservation.
I have been coming to Filomena for the past eight years. It never disappoints. Food is excellent and generous, and I love it when they decorate.
We have made a traditional holiday outing Filomena each year for the last 17 years! The decor is outstanding and the food is wonderful. This year I was a little late on making our reservation but the 3 pm Saturday worked out just fine because it lined up perfectly with the Holiday Boat Parade down at the Wharf. The only complaint was the lack of greeting we received upon arrival. We waited for 10 minutes until someone acknowledged that we were there and took our name, checked our reservation - very unusual for the normally attentive restaurant.
This was such a magical beautiful place to eat. The Christmas decor was heavenly. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Large portions of hearty very good food with excellent sauce. A must for anyone who loves Italian cuisine.
I have eaten at Filomena’s restaurant for the past 20 years and the consistency is still there
We always enjoy the family atmosphere 👍👍👍
First time dining in, the food was delicious and hit the spot. The portions were large and very filling. Be prepared to wait to be seated since its a full house during the holiday season.
They blew us off for almost an hour before sitting us in a seat with wooden beams in the wrong place. The food wasn’t good enough to out stand the rest. Mediocre food with awful service
My wife and I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. Everything was fantastic! We'll be back!
Delicious meal. Loved the atmosphere and the Christmas decor. Wonderful first time experience.
Great place for holiday outing. Crowded but very festive.
Always a superb experience! The food, atmosphere, and service were outstanding!
You will not be seated until your party Has all arrived. A great experience overall.
Always delicious - especially the gnocchi. And the decorations for the holidays are not to be missed
I’ve been to Filomena’s a number of times over the years and always look forward to it. We live out of town now and go out of our way to come back and enjoy the homemade pasta, etc. Everything on the menu is delicious, particularly the meatballs!!
Not a place for quiet conversation, but my favorite place to eat whenever I get to visit DC. Love the ever changing decorations. I try to come as seasonal events change to see new decorations. So fun!!
Great food and great ambience.
Wonderful. It’s a really cool experience and the food is delicious.
My favorite restaurant period. This is 3rd year in a row I've come here while visiting DC and am never disappointed.
I ordered the manicotti. Nero, the server took the order without any hesitation.
Meal was served and I was given cheese ravioli. I told him I ordered the manicotti.
Oh. I have worked here a long time and this is basically the same thing. So just eat it.
I should have been notified at the time of ordering that manicotti is no longer served. He offered me mushroom?!?! As a replacement meal?!?
Amazing food, best italian ive had in dc. restaurant was pretty packed so it was pretty loud. food came quickly. got seated about 15 minutes after our reservation which isnt too bad.
Really nice food the plates are big so be prepared and enjoy
We came for Thanksgiving the restaurant was recommend by a friend who lived there and it did not disappoint. It was beyond fantastic. I highly recommend and will be back again.
I have been coming to this establishment for over 30 years and it is always the highest quality and a wonderfully experienced staff.
Fabulous food, decor and service!
Slow service and waiter forgot appetizer
As usual, the decorations for the holidays are over the top beautiful! The service is impeccable! they never rush your dinner. The food portions are very large, enough to share. The quality of the food is very fresh and definitely homemade. Always recommended to make a reservation or the wait time time can be very long!
Loved it. It is not cheap by any means, but the quality of the food and service makes it worth it.
Ambiance: tables are too close together, room is overloaded with plastic objects.
Service: slow, brought cappuccino long before dessert we planned to eat together.
Food; poor. The amount of Sunday cream sauce on the main courses was visually overwhelming and unhealthy and the overcooked and poor flavor of the Sunday sauce made each bite less tolerable as I tried to extract it from the sea of sauce. The mushroom sauce on the mushroom appetizer was tasty but again the amount of sauce was overwhelming and unhealthy. The chocolate cake was very tasty but the restaurant didn’t offer any ice cream to balance out the chocolate. I do not plan to return and don’t understand its relatively high rating.
Christmas time must, stunning! Desserts fabulous!! Service just okay but everything else so worth it.
One of the best Italian restaurants in the DC area. Excellent food, excellent service. So much fun, especially during the holidays!
The ambiance was spectacular! Maria, our server, was polite, poised, and very professional. She always made sure our drinks were filled and dishes removed as we dined. The Arancini is a must for an appetizer, my husband had the Fungi Manicotti, the boys and I had Ravioli alla Matrimoni. Our dishes were phenomenal! My only complaint, I wish we had room for dessert! Thank you Maria, and Filomena’s y’all never disappoint!
Third time we have been here... always amazing! Ambience is second to none, service impeccable, food beyond delicious!
The mozzarella Caprese with burratta cheese is amazing. Also the Agnolotti (spinach ravioli in cream sauce) and lasagna can not be beat!
Very good food. Very good service. Great ambiance.
Always a pleasure to visit Filomenas! The next visit is being planned before I leave every time. :)
The stuff was great, the service was great, and the food was excellent. I am putting Filomena’s on my favorites list.
