Greenhouse at the Jefferson Hotel Washington DC
Good American food, good European service in traditional atmosphere.
I have one complaint. We had reservations for 1:30. I understand that this is the last time period available for brunch. At about 1:35 we were told that the kitchen would be closing down in a few minutes. We were still waiting for one guest (she arrived a few minutes after 1:35). If reservations are available at 1:30 you must allow enough time for guest to arrive and to view the menu. At that point I felt rushed and unfortunately it did mar our dining experience.
Jorge is a excellent server. He was very attentive!
Especially enjoyed David Bueno, general manager, taking the time to greet me and my guests.
Wonderful Sunday Brunch experience.
Ambiance is definitely 10/10. Great breakfast selection and excellent service!
We had a lovely time- the ambiance was amazing! I can’t wait to go back!
Beautiful atmosphere. Elegant, quiet and pleasant. Wait staff was superb. A tiny pricey but worth it. Food was delicious.
The atmosphere is fitting to the restaurant's name, "The Greenhouse": It was light and airy and decorated with plants and flowers. The table service (and the whole dining experience) is elegant and an indulgence: after being seated, the staff provided me with a cushion on which to place my purse! We had the Sunday brunch: the baked eggs and blueberry French toast were excellent. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. Would definitely go back the next time I'm in DC!
Everything was amazing. But the waiter was grumpy he did not smile
A lovely, elegant place to dine for lunch or dinner. I asked for a table in one of the alcoves and even though the restaurant was not full we were seated at a table in the main dining room - again since there was little noise we didn't complain.
The roasted chicken salad was delicious - the tomato quiche with feta was a disappointment: tasteless, and dry with a too thick crust. It was accompanied by a small bowl of baby arugula that had seen better days. Overall this is a really nice place to dine - so I"ll be back - I just won't order the quiche.
While I have been a longtime fan of the restaurant, the food today wasn’t as terrific as it usually is, there was a hair on my plate amidst my food, and $16 for an extra cup of coffee seemed excessive. Will pass next time.
The ambience, the food, and even the dishes were aesthetically beautiful. The food tasted excellent and the severs were top notch. This is a great place for a fancy brunch or afternoon tea. Highly recommend!
Great service and amazing food! The food was not only good but it came out really fast. Would definitely come back.
Breakfast was good. Wish they have more seafood on the menu.
Servers not attentive
Best breakfast in D.C.
Beautiful atmosphere. Great service, the food was delicious. Quiet and relaxing too
Will definitely come back again!
is a perfect place for business lunch or afternoon tea
I was very disappointed in the waiting staff, my party and I were waiting for our orders to be taken. I expected far more hospitality given the grandeur of the hotel
Beautiful brunch in an intimate setting, perfect for a date with my significant other.
Great food and atmosphere.
Love the Jefferson! Great food and always amazing service!
Excellent service, delicious food, and beautiful atmosphere. We’ll come back!
The food was delicious, the service excellent and the it was nice and quiet, so we could converse at a normal voice level. This is an excellent restaurant for Sunday brunch.
We love The Greenhouse! The food and service are excellent!
Love the Greenhouse so much that we are having three meals in 24 hours there! Always perfect food and service.
Father’s Day celebration and it was terrific!
We made reservations for the afternoon tea. When we arrived, we were informed that the restaurant at the Jefferson Hotel has discontinued the afternoon tea. We settled for a nice brunch but would have much preferred the afternoon tea or a notice before we arrived.
I'm tempted not to rave about this because I want to be sure to get a table the next time I want to go. But the food and service are terrific and it is a great place to have a serious business conversation.
The Greenhouse staff is accommodating, the food is delicious and the setting is lovely.
Wonderful food, service, atmosphere. A special treat!
Food was absolutely delightful and delicious. The ambiance was so beautiful and elegant. Service was kind and prompt. Had a lovely time with my mom for Sunday brunch in DC.
Beautiful setting with wonderful brunch and great service!
It was a nice experience. The ambiance was amazing.
The ambience, as always, was great; such a pretty place. The food, however, was not worth the price. I ordered the quiche. The piece I was served was very average in taste, and a very small portion for the price of around $20. One expects more from Greenhouse.
I absolutely loved this place. Every vacation we try to find a fancy restaurant to dine once during the vacation. This spot was beautiful and the service was phenomenal. Not to mention the food was delicious. I would recommend this to anyone going to Washington DC. Although if you don’t have a vehicle and you are using the metro- it is quite a walk.
Delicious! Fresh and tasty menu selections. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes with bacon. The coffee was excellent too. The cafe's atmosphere was very charming as well as romantic. Superb service from doormen, host and waIt staff.
Spent the week in DC with a friend & enjoyed a nice brunch here. One of the best experiences I’ve had. Food was amazing, service was very polite, accommodating, & respectful. The ambiance was incredible as well. Will definitely be back for a meal next time I’m in DC.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and the food, I felt a bit insulted when the waiter brought the check and commented about not wanting to be there all day; implying that I hurry up and pay.
