Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
District of Columbia's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The dining room has a clubby, timeless elegance that is calming in and of itself. Service is quiety attentive. Our starters were excellent; we were both appropriately enticed by the octapus. I ordered as a main course the haibut which could have been more assertively flavored; my dining companion enjoyed the Dover sole, an indulgence that the Lafayette's traditional version measured up to The sole was artfully filleted tableside, accompanied by the superb playing on the piano of Tom Vogt. In fact Tom is the primary reason we dine a few times a year here. Many diners stopped by to tell Tom how much they enjoyed his music. We did, too. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Marcel's never disappoints - I only wish we could go more often. On this occasion, we did the pre-theater menu before a show at the Kennedy Center, and the service was efficient yet did not feel rushed at all. The food was, as always spectacular - the lobster flan was a delightful new treat on this occasion and well worth the upcharge. The car service to the show is fantastic, and I would say that it sets Marcel's in a class its own, but the food and service alone honestly deserve that merit. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I'm a vegetarian, and have tried top vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, New York City and Philadelphia. Hands down, Elizabeth's Gone Raw tops them all. From the exciting ingredients, to the beautiful plating, and from the impeccable service to the exhilarating culinary experience, there is extreme thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and dedication towards quality. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the amazing and healthful cuisine. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The restaurant was stylish and quieter than I expected. Our server was warm, friendly and efficient. You can't ask for more than that! Portions are not hardy, but the ingredients are rich enough to satiate one's appetite. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly. Thank you Kinship for a lovely experience.

We want you to have a different approach to dining: one that’s about the food, but also the love, respect, and traditions that go into each dish. Our food tells the story of our own travels, from Tangier to Tehran and Batumi to Beirut, but it also tells the stories of voices that often go unheard. Hope to see you tonight, walk-ins welcome!

The Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C. is known for being a hub of international restaurants. Running from Mt. Vernon Square to U Street, this trendy area is packed with eateries and hosts everything from Thai and West African cuisine to French-Asian fusion food. These multicultural restaurants frequently entertain throngs of students from Howard University as well as business professionals meeting for lunch before heading back to the Mt. Vernon Square Convention Center. If your taste buds prefer more classic American-style food, try the half-smoke hot dog, one of D.C.'s most iconic dishes. This hot dog is smothered in french fries, cheese sauce, meaty chili and raw onions. You can grab one of these hearty hot dogs just east of the African-American Civil War Memorial.
