We had a fabulous pre-theatre dinner! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Pre-fixe, pre-theatre menu had everything I would have chosen a la carte.
The staff was top notch- knowledgeable and attentive.
We’ve already made reservations to return.

We went to the Kingbird prior to the a play at the Kennedy Center. The bar, the food, and the service were amazing! We enjoyed elegant drinks and well prepared and served food. The convenient valet parking left me with no parking issues for dinner and for the show. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive - and friendly. Lovely evening!

The food was excellent. The service could have been better. We had to wait 10 minutes for our drinks and then we had to ask a second server. It was not quiet but that is expected in a hotel restaurant. Overall I would certainly go back

Great experience! Service attentive without being obtrusive. We were going to an event at the Kennedy Center; the staff asked what time our show was and handled drinks, appetizers and dinner so that we had adequate time without being rushed. The food was excellent.
