    Our swinging sixties inspired high tea embodies the bold freedom & colorful fun of our 1960s origins with a distinctly contemporary spin. The result is so adorable and delicious, you can let your pictures do all the talking. Sip, savor, & snap, darling!

    My wife and I were in DC for a getaway weekend. Excellent meal at Kingbird - the salmon dish was outstanding as was the chocolate mousse dessert. Attentive and pleasant service. All of the staff members were friendly and service minded. Very interesting architecture and decor.

    Very tasty food, wonderful tea selection and great service. Excellent value for what you get. The only issue is the space is pretty ugly.

    This is a great dining option if you are at the Kennedy Center. You can find the restaurant easily if you enter the Watergate Hotel at the main entrance. Edgar was our waiter and provided a top-level, personalized dining experience.

    Can't do better than Kingbird. If you're going to the Kennedy Center, I highly recommend having dinner at the Kingbird. From a cordial greeting at the host stand to a "thank you for coming" as you leave. All kinds of cocktails and wine choices to meet your preferences. Appetizers as well as Entrees are large portions. You may want to share the Kale Caesar to begin your dining excursion. There is a prix fix 3 course dinner that I would recommend. Ask for Omar and Katie! We love them.
