    The food was delicious. We had ordered the scallop and mussels with a side of brussel sprouts. They were soooo good. Our server could have been better. He took our order and he took our payment. Pretty much all he did. We had to ask someone to let our server know we were ready for the check as he did not check on us at all.

    Wanted to say big thanks. I have been wanting to visit your restaurant for a very long time - it’s been on the list! Thrilled that we got to dine and share lunch with our friend who are from the area and are frequent diners. Service was great and the food was excellent.

    This was my second visit at Barca and each time was enjoyable and memorable. Last night while I was waiting for my date to arrive, our server came over several times to ensure I had everything I needed, while waiting. We ordered drinks and several small plates which were excellent. The staff lowered the screens well in advance of the torrential rain. Our server continually checked on us. We ended up ordering more drinks, another small plate and splitting a sandwich, all of which were excellent. So, overall, the food, the service and the atmosphere (right on the water) are excellent. I hope to return soon.

    We ate here twice in our brief DC visit - once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the food was terrific. Complex compositions, tasty and well presented. I eat Caesar salads quite often and theirs was one of the best I’ve had. Both times we commented that the background music was enjoyable and not too loud for the room. Our waiter was familiar with the wine we wanted to try and it was delightful.

    Entertaining relatives from out of town, I knew Old Ebbitt Grill would not disappoint. Ambiance was great and impressive, and food was delicious, and wonderful. Although server was very friendly and pleasant, she did not refresh our drinks. That was the only downside of service. Otherwise, everything was great!
