Just a boring and uncreative hotel restarurant. Food was fine -nothing to return for-, but the decor and settings are boring, outdated, unremarkable.

Our meal was delicious and the service was good. I had the BBQ Chicken and my husband had Fish and Chips. The waitress was familiar with the beer list and was able to offer suggestions when we asked.

This is a restaurant that is part of hotel and sorry don't remember the hotel chain but it was probably a 3 star hotel. The menu is basic bar type food but what we had was very good!! The calamari, wings & jambalaya & my snobby husband even enjoyed it! Waitress was very friendly!

I had the beet salad with chicken, it was very very good. But everyone else in our group of 5 was let down by their meals. Both the burger and chicken sandwich were poorly received. We did order the flight of fries appetizer and calamari. Fries were unanimously enjoyed but calamari was not fried long enough and the batter was not completely cooked. Wet calamari=eww.

Went for Happy hour, drink selection was fair. No food offerings for HH, but you can order from the menu for American staples. Hotel bar scene at best, good in a pinch. Nice staff, but didn't come by frequently enough.

Simply wanted a steak salad and still don't understand what went wrong. People generally anticipate getting a cut of steak with a salad, like you would with any other protein. The server asked five times how I wanted the steak and I said I want a piece of steak cooked medium rare. The salad came out with chunks of well done steak. Inconvenienced at this point and asked to speak with a manager. The chef came out, don't know why since he's not the manager, and apologized for the miscommunication. Why would I be charged for this salad and unpleasant experience? Won't be coming back.

I walked in for a weeknight meal and was immediately seated and my drink order taken. My drink and food came quickly. The server was friendly. I had a salad with chicken and was very satisfied with food quality. The chicken was tender and moist (I suspect it was brined). I would eat there again.

We came here at the end of a late meeting. Even though a reservation had been made and confirmed, the restaurant had already "logged off" and we're not ready to take us. It took almost 30 minutes to get seated. While the staff was very nice, it was terribly slow. The food was not bad, we never got to have dessert because the kitchen closed up without notice.

This was a typical hotel restaurant, not too crowded, with large booths and coloring pages for kids. The food was a little on the expensive side, but was good and portions were good. There were kids' meals available for $7, which was nice and didn't cause our bill to be unmanageable. This is a good place to eat if you are staying in the hotel and want to eat and go back to your room after dinner.

Always love the ever-changing menu. Being served our appetizer by Executive Chef Nathan Wakefield in person is such an honor when special guests are present, as was the case on this lunch occasion. Gabriela, our server and a definitive professional, is eternally full of smiles, helpful suggestions & serves very attentively without hovering or interrupting conversations. Thank you, Chef Nathan & his astute culinary staff & Gabriela for making our rare visit so memorable. Greeter Leslie always sets the tone on a high note with a radiant personality and contagious laugh.

If you need a last minute place to go on a special occasion i.e., Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc... Finn and Porter will fit the bill. Nothing fantastic, however, food is pretty decent. Chicken and Waffles were good (tender white meat tenders). Located inside of the Embassy Suites and no good sites to see while dining in there. Waitress was nice and food came out at a decent time.

My wife and I came across Finn & Porter when looking for reservations before a Washington Capitals home playoff game. All of our regular spots around the arena were booked. We were able to get a reservation at Finn and were surprised to see that they were not crowded when we got there. Finn is only a few blocks from the arena, the food is good and the service was friendly and efficient. Finn is a good alternative to the crowded restaurants around the Verizon Center on game day.

I was a little hesitant when I realized that the place was attached to a hotel. My Fiance and I met a friend for dinner and while everyone was satisfied with their meal, the service was lacking (at best) and the place was mediocre in general. Nothing at all stuck out. My drink did not come with my food. The server was not attentive and interacted without any enthusiasm whatsoever. Food wasn't bad. Not sure how to explain the ambiance except sterile. Perhaps we were dining too early (6:30ish) but it did not feel like we're were taking our friend out for a decent meal. I would not recommend a friend eat there unless they were very hungry and standing directly next to the place.

P.S. I got the shrimp tacos; don't get the shrimp tacos. Salmon dish with red beans and rice was much better and our friend's burger looked delicious as well.

The design of the place felt more like a charter or buffet but it was like they were trying to be a fancy restaurant so they blocked that area off and made a kitchen.

Ended up here on Christmas day for lunch. Not much was open so we relied on open table to guide us. It might be helpful to note that Finn & Porter is attached to the Embassy Suites. We walked right by it thinking it would be right after the hotel. Anyway, we had great service and great food. Honestly no complaints.

F&P has been frequented quite a bit by our office and will continue to be a neighborhood gem in my book. It is also a great happy hour hub that can accommodate any large group. The food is good and the service is quick, which keeps us coming back.
