Greenhouse at the Jefferson Hotel Washington DC
Great brunch! Staff was very accommodating for our 9 month old.
Lovely restaurant in an even lovelier old hotel has terrific service and is very quiet for easy conversation. Food is okay on the whole but nothing to write home about and certainly not a good value for the money.
We were eating from the brunch menu which is mostly comfort food. I thoroughly enjoyed the fried chicken and waffles. My wife had the avocado toast and it was delicious. The atmosphere is light and airy with istoric Jefferson memorabilia and the room is delightfully quiet - perfect for catching up with a friend who you haven’t seen in a long time. We had a delightful meal!
Most elegant dining environs in the DC area. Great coffee/ latte. Pumpkin soup delicious but should be served with bread.
Would appreciate if restaurant would put more effort into offering Gluten Free dishes.
It was a delightful experience but perhaps suffered slightly from setting expectations a trifle too high, because of the Michelin factor. Were it not for that, the rating would more likely have been 5 Star. Also, the wait staff, while exceedingly gracious & friendly was not quite as attentive as to be expected. Several times, the dining room was sans staff-for example, no way to catch an eye & ask for more coffee etc. because no one was even in sight. Nevertheless it was a delicious meal , a delightful experience. We’ll come again.
Usually love this place, but was a bit disappointed with lunch. Really expensive and the food was not that good. I would definitely come here for brunch again (which is great), but I do not think I would come back for lunch.
Beautiful historic hotel. Great holiday atmosphere and service.
Staying as a guest of hotel
Great location for a quiet lunch. Service was outstanding and the ambiance was pleasing and relaxed.
Impeccable service, beautiful setting and low noise; perfect place for a business lunch.
My favorite spot for a special breakfast or important meeting over breakfast. Elegant, impeccable service and lovely food. This has become a tradition to start the celebration early in the day for my birthday. Classic Washington!
Staff was attentive, friendly and professional making this a pleasant experience. Food was excellent!
Breakfast in the Greenhouse at The Jefferson is a treat that all visitors to Washington DC must experience. The beautiful dining room, the elegant decor, and the outstanding service make this one of my favorite spots in DC.
I'm delighted to write this recommendation!
The restaurant was beautiful, much like the rest of the hotel. Excellent service, however, the food left much to be desired. The major disappointments for me were the burger and hot chocolate. The burger was not prepared to my liking and the flavor was unimpressive, while the hot chocolate was very weak. Beautiful venue so I might return and order a lighter meal.
Great food and setting. Nice for treating yourself or a business meal.
The Greenhouse continues to live up to past expectations. As a special brunch, it is superb.
Such a cute place with a great atmosphere! We loved it and the service was impeccable. If we are in DC again, we will be returning. Things that set it apart for us; it was a rainy day and they warmed our wet jackets so we could leave comfortable! They also made sure my purse had a place to sit, so it would not need to be on the floor. Great attention to detail! I highly recommend:)
An excellent breakfast and the service is superb!
Everything is incredible- the best coffee we have ever had!
Brilliant, as always. I go to the Greenhouse often and the service is impeccable and the food delicious.
Great food and service second to none!
Peaceful. Lovely to look at. Remarkably well priced. One of my favorite places to treat myself and friends.
Love this restaurant. It was be far my favorite restaurant in DC!
It was a baby shower brunch and the hospitality was amazing!! Thanks for such a beautiful ambiance and delicious food!
Quiet, attentive service. Great destination for Sunday brunch.
We really enjoyed the high quality food. We would return again any chance we got. Loved every bite.
The Greenhouse feels like it’s plucked out of a past era in DC dining history, where lavish meals were paid for on lobbyist’s client expense accounts and service, quality, and ambiance were of the utmost importance. The beautiful setting, bright, natural lighting, and delicious food all contribute to a formal atmosphere that is perfect for small celebrations or a fancy meal for an out-of-town visitor. The numerous newspapers available for reading are a very nice touch for any breakfast or brunch.
Gorgeous breakfast in a quiet area. Impeccable and thoughtful service that even offered a stool for me to place my hat on. The food was fantastic
Had two brunches and a lunch at the Greenhouse as staying at hotel. The food was outstanding at each visit. Nothing to complain about. Great fresh juice and coffee as well. Good selection and again well prepared!
The service on the other hand was really subpar for cost. One day took over one hour from sitting down to getting served and I am pretty sure they forgot order as other tables were moving much quicker. Other days, you almost have to jump up and grab someone to come over. The staff however was pleasant enough otherwise.
They were very nice about writing off the 1h wait meal, but of course this was the day we were checking out and wound up checking out late because of it (which they didn't like).
Had dinner at Plume which was a completely different experience service wise.
Wedding Anniversary stay at the Jefferson hotel. The ambience is beautiful and the food was very good. I had the egg white omelet and lemon ricotta pancakes and my husband had the eggs and waffles. Both of our meals were delicious! Will return soon!
Excellent food in a bright, comfortable, and elegant setting with impeccable service.
Loved the delicious food, excellent service and beautiful, charming ambiance
Service was slow.
It was great!! We really loved it and it was a great place for a group of friends to get together. Would also be wonderful for a birthday party!
This is my favorite place in the city. It’s effortlessly elegant and delightful. The food is always delicious and the staff’s attention to detail impeccable
Breakfast was fast and hot. Staff was very attentive .
we were there for Sunday brunch. Our group had lemon ricotta pancakes, Belgian waffles, French toast, an omelette, coffee, tea and juice. The food was very good. The dining room is beautiful. Our service was amazing! It is rare to have outstanding service at any price in DC but the Greenhouse st the Jefferson is an exception. It doesn’t disappoint!
Delicious and reasonably price
I love this place! So relaxing and the food is good as well.
