Celebrating an anniversary. The food was delicious and the server really attentive without being overbearing. Love the ambiance there
Okay but took forever to get dessert (coconut cake) which tasted thawed and wasn’t good. Omelet and salad were good.
The restaurant is fairly new. Today brunch/lunch crowd taxes the servers’ capacity, so service was a bit slow and episodic.
The food was excellent and the ambiance and decor were very pleasing, to put it mildly.
We’ll be back.
Such nice service from Isabel
Enjoy a great brunch in their out door seating. The weather was perfect, we enjoyed the food. I highly recommend the biscuits.
My wife and I found Macon Bistro and Larder on a google search. We read the reviews and chose to venture out for dinner. We were instantly greeted and seated. Our server offered the specials and took our beverage order. The apps were amazing to see and taste. Our meal came in a very reasonable spacing so that we were not rushed. The meal was delectable. Our server, lovely tattooed funny and nice made us feel at home. I'm sorry I can't remember here name. (Laura, Larry or sumthin like that). She and my wife ganged up on me and had fun at my expense. Great time!!! We had no room for dessert but did see others enjoying theirs. YOU SHOULD GO...
Great for a quiet gathering with friends! Portions are generous. Parking in the area is easy.
Lovely wine list, great server, great location. Food unfortunately was too salty, and too rich. Brussels sprouts were far too greasy, Macon burger is a classic but this take on it is just waaay too salty, so you lose the fun combo of flavors. Mac & cheese was uninspired and dry. With a few tweaks, this place could still be fabulous.
Good place to go in the neighborhood. Food is tasty (though not on the healthiest side) and good atmosphere
All dishes tasty, well prepared & presented but portions rather small for the price. House ginger ale cocktails were great. Mathew, my server, was the best feature of the restaurant, friendly, gracious & knowledgable.
May have just been an off night, but the dishes were hit or miss and the service was off. Our last visit was much more enjoyable, but experiences like this one make you question whether to give a place another chance in such a crowded market.
We though the tables were too close together and as a result the waitress kept knocking into my chair...she was trying to be careful but it was just too tight a space.
The food was delicious.
Fun , great food.
Great Food and Great Service
Went for a last min birthday meal and the staff was Great! Thanks to the bartender with our own wine!
Great service, great vibe and amazing food. Great little quaint brunch spot. Hidden gem
It was terribly terribly hot! Only later did we learn the condenser was broken on the air conditioning unit. We had to ask repeatedly for water. Although it was steaming hot in the restaurant our first cocktails were not served for over an hour. We were celebrating my sons college graduation and we had 6 out of town guests who had arrived that day. What a terrible introduction to Washington DC and what an awful dining experience. Will not return.
Great across the board! Outdoor dining was very nice. Great selection of food and drinks.
Lamb shank was terrific
Great service and friendly staff that made us feel like regulars even though it was our first visit.
We love the attentive service & the elevated comfort food inspired by regional, seasonal produce.
Genuinely friendly waitstaff and food that is exactly what you'd want.
Easter Brunch. Outstanding food and service!
Great food and great atmosphere! Lovely bar and the service was fabulous!
Great service and seasonal menu.
Our server was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent!
Delicious food. Thoughtful service. It can be loud at night but lunch is quiet.
Food is always good and service very attentive and friendly
Excellent food and ambiance. Definitely recommend to a friend.
We moved to the neighborhood last year and thought Macon was a brand new restaurant, and when we walked in for dinner last weekend we were shocked to find out they have been open 5 years. The place still looks and feels brand new. It's very clean and modern with a bit of a southern vibe. We started at the bar and the bartender, David, was quick to get us menus and drinks as well as being easy to talk to about anything (a good quality in any bartender). We had an excellent cocktail hour before moving to our table for dinner. They seated us in the front window, which was lovely. Service was quick and attentive without being bothersome. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made fantastic recommendations. The meal was upscale southern and certainly fit the bill - delicious from start to finish. All the appetizers were particularly tasty - don't miss the crab hush puppies!
Macon is a lovely neighborhood gem. The brunch food was very tasty. We both had the eggs and grits. The biscuits were delightfully light with the honey butter. The space is cozy, but not cramped. The noise level does sometimes ramp up, but not intolerably. Recommend highly!
Classy place with friendly and knowledgeable stuff. Food is very tasty. Bacon is delicious. Coffee is good.
wonderful patio, attentive service, nice addition to the neighborhood. great desserts & drinks.
Great spot. Attention to detail. Excellent wait staff. 6-8 visits over past year.
I was there for lunch. They had a veru limited menu. Service was
good. Very few customers, so my rating of quiet was not actually
accurate. Would not recommend for lunch.
Great food and service.
Very tasty. Good food and good service. Great neighborhood place.
Lovely spot to enjoy a friend without being rushed through dinner.
Excellent waitress who even knew some sign language for our deaf friend.
It's all good, no, great.
This is our go-to place for excellent, innovative food. Adore the lobster grits, cheese grits, shrimp grits, steak, fish, okra okra okra, biscuits biscuits biscuits. Coconut cake is a Southern thing. Reminds me of Grandma.
It was really nice sitting outdoors. Our waitress was super nice. And people near us had dogs with them which was an unexpected and fun add to the evening.
