    Pearl Dive never lets me down. Food is always amazing and the lady who was assigned to our table was just an absolute sweetheart. What I love about this place even though it’s an oyster bar, for those who aren’t fond of oysters there are plenty of other options on their menu that is just as filling and savory.

    I and two colleagues had a fabulous dinner here. I was staying at the adjacent DuPont Circle Hotel and also had breakfast here all three mornings of my stay. The breakfast and breakfast service was as excellent as the dinner. Truly wonderful food, service, and ambience. The hotel itself, and as the onsite bar, Doyle’s, are also top notch, with impeccable, friendly, and attentive service. Stay and eat there. You won’t be disappointed.
