We have recently opened The Magnolia Room at Macon to accommodate more diners during dinner time. The Magnolia Room at Macon is located down the hall from Macon in the Chevy Chase Arcade on the left hand side and affords guests a more intimate and spacious dining experience. Depending on volume during peak dining times, your reservation may be seated in The Magnolia Room, which affords the same great food with the same great service. If you would like to request to either sit in Magnolia or to not sit in Magnolia, please do so in your reservation notes when you make your reservation

Food is so good! Unfortunately, service was initially very bad--being ignored upon entrance to the restaurant, treated rudely when trying to order drinks, etc. This may have been because they were short on a server or something, because once our actual server (the one who took care of us for the rest of the night) came into the picture, everything was fantastic. She was prompt, courteous and helpful. I just love the food here. So flavorful and prepared with care. I think we just had one odd little anomaly with the service at first, because I've been here before and never had a problem.
Food too salty. Three out of four of us couldn’t get enough water for hours after. Our server was beyond perfect (if it’s possible to be better than perfect) and atmosphere is great. Lively not loud
A wonderful blend of French and American Souther Gothic-nice, very nice!
A Great find, and the best brunch in uptown, Washington DC -- perfect for after the Avalon Theatre! And I was a raised by a southern Mom, so I can attest that the food is genuine -- down to the fried okra, and extra thick bacon -- Yum!!/ Biscuits were excellent -- could be EVEN better. I'll be back, again and again.
Our server would disappear for a long time, we had to get someone to find her so we could place our order after waiting 20 minutes, and then throughout the meal she never came to check on us...
Very comfortable, great service, deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes delish! Only suggestion: skin on brick chicken needs to be crispier- but flavor was great! Oh- brussel sprouts outstanding!
Always a great place to meet friends. Food is always great! Menu changes seasonally. Great cocktails.
Great food. Pleasure to eat at a restaurant where you can speak with your fellow diners! Thank you for that.
Wonderful experience. Personable and attentive staff. Most importantly the food is fantastic.
We have been here many times and they never disappoint. Even with the seasonally changing menus, the food is always great.
place is nice and service was fine but food was not very good.
Outstanding service, amazing food, will return again.
I love this neighborhood gem. Wonderful atmosphere, cocktails, and menu
Had a phenomenal time. Food was terrific and so was the service.
My wife and I enjoyed a terrific late dinner at Macon Bistro on Saturday night. Having just returned from a plane trip across the country, we were in need of good food and drink. We found both. We both ordered the delicious burrata and tomato salad. I followed with the lamb chop entree, while my wife opted for a lighter second course of Macon's shrimp and grits. Both were excellent.
We love Macon! Amazing fresh food in a friendly, neighborhood spot. A real gem!
The food was great as always, and the service could not have been better. Thanks!
Had Sunday lunch with my family. The food was excellent as always!
Three of us ate in the Magnolia Room on Saturday night. We had a great dinner, with terrific service.
Great food and service as always! We've been coming here since the beginning.
Really love the ambience; the food so-so. Oh we'll be back because of location, but next time, we'll just sit at the bar and maybe have a biscuit or something for food, since there's not much choice in true apps. The menu needs work, honestly. If it's a brasserie? Then please add more appealing sides like fresh geens and better vegetable sides, and work on what it looks like on the plate. If southern? Shrimp and sausage dishes, fried chicken, creamy grits, corn anything are the wheelhouse. The chopped okra belongs in gumbo. (Whole makes much better presentation.) FInally, we were jammed into a two top and the seating people were... unwelcoming? We had such a great first impression a month or so ago at the bar, but the evening restaurant experience was sub par. A shame, because we're rooting for this neighborhood joint!
The chicken entrée was very overcooked. A big disappointment.
Delicious as always!
Very good experience
I live in the neighborhood and visit Macon on a regular basis. I like the restaurant because the food is consistently good and the ambience is pleasant especially if you’re dining with someone and don’t want to be in a space that is too loud to hear a conversation.
The menu is not expansive but I would rather have a list of a few menu items and know that what I’m eating is creative and well-prepared rather than a large menu of mediocre selections.
This last visit was with a friend of mine and I to have brunch. We both selected the chicken and waffle and were pleased with our choice. The chicken was boneless, well seasoned and tender and the waffle was fluffy and also tasty. I will now make it a point to visit Macon for brunch as well as dinner.
We had a nice brunch. Food and service were very good.
Terrible experience. Waiter could not have been less attentive, despite what appeared to be a surplus of staff. The food was absolutely laughable for what you expect. Not sure what was going on but it took about 45 minutes to order our entree.
Tired of the upcharges on cocktails that make a simple Manhattan $18.
I've eaten at Macon on several occasions, so was surprised by how disappointing the food was on this visit. The beet salad was flavorless, and the beats seemed like they may have been old. The lobster bisque had an unusual texture, in that it was very, very thick, almost like mashed potatoes. It also lacked flavor, other than the pieces of lobster themselves.
Great Sunday dinner. Delicious and hot meal and portion size just right. We didn’t leave stuffed, but left satisfied and happy. As it should be, and that’s how it has been the past several visits. They do it right!
Great food and service. Fine southern comfort food.
We enjoyed everything. The brick chicken was especially good, as were the fried green tomatoes. The service was also excellent.
Great food and recommended wines were good.
Enjoyed a excellent three course meal during restaurant week. Limited but very nice selection of choices. All courses were excellent as was service. Our first visit and look forward to coming again.
I like Macon a lot. It’s in my neighborhood, it’s charming and it’s quiet at lunchtime. The food is quite good; those Essie’s biscuits are sinful. But it’s unforgivable not to have ripe peaches in a salad in the summertime. Plus, there was a bare sprinkling of goat cheese. Otherwise, it was a nice, filling salad for only $12 with an excellent salad dressing. I’ve tried fish there and enjoyed it. I will definitely go back. The woman in charge offered a dessert because I mentioned that the peaches weren’t ripe, so they do care about their customers.
We gave it another chance after a long absence and it came through well, perhaps because outside dining took much of the noise away from dining room. Menu, food is good, but service has been erratic in the past.
Great food! Wonderful service!
We went to try a new place during restaurant week. We will go back because the food and the service was amazing!
Lovely find in the eclectic CT avenue corridor leading up to Chevy Chase Circle. Great service and the drinks and meals were very nicely prepared. Some unsolicited advice? Whatever you do, save room for the chocolate bread pudding dessert. It alone is worth the price of admission.
