We had an amazing President's Day meal here! The food was incredibly good and the service was very friendly. The atmosphere here is really cool and we will definitely be back.

Great food; our party had peanut soup, French onion, Hessian beef, Reuben, hamburger, and prime rib sandwich from their lunch menu. All were fantastic! The service was excellent! And the atmosphere was a joy to be part of. Wish we had gotten dessert - will definitely go back when we are in town again.

My husband and I went to celebrate Valentine's Day. The atmosphere was very intimate and romantic. The special menu was a good value for the amount of food we received. The food was superb. I will definitely go back.

This is the resteraunt that I go to for Valentine's Day and our anniversary. It is quiet candlelight dinner and a bit of history, too.

The food, the service, and the atmosphere in Gadsby's was fantastic! Exactly, what you're looking for if you want a quiet evening out with a special someone. The authenticity of the restaurant and menu really make this a fine dining experience. There is even an older gentleman, in full period-specific garb, who wanders around and personally engages each table in small talk, flattery, and (for a nominal fee) will even light up the room with love song customized to your Better Half.....keep an eye on him, he is QUITE the smooth talker.

We dined there on Valentine's day just after landing at Washington National. That evening had a fixed menu with 3 choices, and was rather pricey considering the limited selection and modest portions. I had sea bass that I enjoyed, while my wife had duck that was very fatty yet tough to get into. She only tackled about half of it before giving up. So the fixed menu wasn't very good for us, and we can't comment on the regular menu. The restaurant was genuinely historic and charming, the atmosphere was delightful, service was good, and the strolling entertainment was fun. But the food (at least on that night) was somewhat of a disappointment.

We had a wonderful time at Gadsby's Tavern. The food was wonderful. The atmosphere was great. The staff was over the top accommodating. A return visit will be a must when we return to the area!
