It was good
It was Sunday brunch, and the kitchen was a bit slammed. Our server was a bit over taxed, but did a decent job of making sure that we had what we needed, eventually.
Brunch was amazing!
First time at JPauls with out of town friends. It was a busy Saturday night. While loud inside the atmospheres was fun. Service and food were quite good. Portions were on the larger side and overall price value was excellent. Would come back again without hesitation.
We were looking for a mid-priced restaurant in Georgetown that was easily accessible and found J Paul's.
The restaurant Is located right on M street which is one of the main streets in Georgetown and in the center of the restaurant row.
This is a very busy bar/restaurant with two major sections with one side having booths in the bar area and the other have white table cloths and a bit nicer.
Unfortunately we were sat in the bar section which wasn't optimal but it was so crowded on a Saturday night we didn't want to have to wait any longer for a table and just accepted it.
Our server Luis was fantastic! He was really outgoing and friendly and exceptionally patient with us as we sat at his table for over 4 hours. He was never pushy or irritated and kept filling our water glasses and drink glasses without incident.
Dinner was really good, I had the Getty pasta dish with shrimp and mussels and my friends had the beet salad, jambalaya and a chicken sandwich. All really enjoyed our meal.
Prices are reasonable and the vibe is lively.
Food was fine; no complaints. Service was very good for a party of 10. Friendly staff. Seafood pasta was pretty good...would have been nice to have more "seafood". Shrimp and mussels only...could expand to include scallops and clams.
Great service and excellent wings. Nothing wrong with 50% off bottle beer.
The server was great - she made the experience. The chili nachos were outstanding. The sliders and crab cake sandwich was very good. The french fries could use work.
Excellent customer service with a friendly attitude. Broad menu with creative touches.
Well worth while.
We will go back again.
We use to be regulars here, but I was quickly reminded why we stopped. First, the service was horrendous. (10 minutes to be greeted, another 15 minutes to get drinks, appetizer was wrong), and on a freezing cold evening they didn’t have the heater on. Every person on the restaurant had their winter coat on during their meal! Even the wait staff had on coats or sweaters. With all the problems, no one made an effort to recifty or make the situation better. Then, when paying, they screwed up the credit card, charging the incorrect amount, which caused more problems. Sad to see such a staple restaurant to take such a nosedive.
We went for brunch on New Year's Day, 2017. That was a very cold day in Washington DC, and the restaurant was freezing ... nearly all the diners had to keep their coats on during their meals. More disappointing, it took nearly an hour from the time we ordered until our entrees arrived ... and we weren't the only diners who had that experience. Clearly the restaurant was unprepared ... for either the weather or the number of guests they elected to serve. Incredibly unpleasant experience.
My brunch was cold and mediocre besides. Noone at our table was too pleased by their order. Service couldn’t have been nicer. Back room very cold.
Very nice experience.....good food, service and ambiance....reasonable prices.
Unfortunately food was NOT good for the price, won't go back again
