we were the only ones at the restaurant. It's a good bar, but not that fun for dinner.

Mad Rose is great for a large group brunch. The service is laid back, in a good way. Unlike many other places in the area, they do not hassle your group and allow you to enjoy a leisurely brunch. There is no set requirement in terms of how much to spend or a time limit. They do individual bills and are happy to serve whoever is there, whenever you get there. You do not need to wait for the whole party to be seated. We had a reservation for 10 and about half of our group was a no show. Our server never complained, was very friendly, and continued excellent service -- like I said earlier, laid back which is the perfect mentality for brunch. We've been going there for our bi-annual brunch for over 2 years and will continue in the future.

A group of us went for brunch and were pleasantly surprised. Don't let the appearance throw you off. Some of us had the buffet; others ordered from the menu. The food was great. The service was great. Will not hesitate to go back.

I didn't know making reservations for brunch includes looking up the DC Bar Crawl schedule. My boyfriend and I walked in for brunch but was stopped by a bouncer to check our ID. I was confused to why this big guy was looking at my ID for brunch?!?! The tables were pushed to the side and people were setting up for something. I asked the server what was going on and he informed me the check in for the Christmas Bar Crawl was here. Although there was a line outside to check in, inside it was clear of diners, only DJs, bouncers, bartenders, and staff. They asked us to wait while they set a table but we could barely him. my boyfriend and I could barely hear each other so we could only image how loud and awkward it will be when these "young adults" are standing around us drinking while we are trying to enjoy our brunch. We let the staff know we were leaving and left to go somewhere we can enjoy our meal.

Had a living social for brunch and was blown away by the food and service! The portions were generous and the grilled white peach garnish was a wonderful surprise! Highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.

Mad Rose is a pretty fun spot in Clarendon for people looking to bar hop. I decided to try there brunch for a change. The food was actually very good. I had the breakfast burrito. It was served hot and tasted delicious. The fresh fruit was also a nice touch. However, the service was just slow. It didn't seem all that crowded and it took at least 30 minutes for our food to come out. I think I would try it again, but I would order as soon as I sat down to avoid the hunger pains. Our waiter was very nice, and I don't think he was at fault for the slowness. I understand, sometimes things just happen.

They accomadated all of my 20 guest for not additional charge expect tip included, which was great for all of my individual guest needs. We ate, drink and smoked hookah. Im so glad i picked this location for my birthday.

My wife & I had a pre-show dinner, which was tasty and served promptly. We went early, so the restaurant was slow and the service was very attentive. The interior needs some updating, with old ceiling tiles and rocky tables, but the bar and outside dining look nice.

I brought my family here for brunch and wish I hadn't. There were very few people at the restaurant yet it took 40 minutes after ordering to get our food and one order was wrong. (Many tables were served before us, I might add.) When the waiter said he would get the manager, based on what we watched, the host was sent over rather than then manager so he could avoid confrontation with us. We weren't told why our food took so long and received very little in terms of an apology. On the way out, we heard another table of two complaining about service. The food was good and well priced - if only you can get it in a timely fashion.

After reading great reviews about the food, we decided to check this place out. We were anticipating them having more of a dining room than they did, looked more like a club that they stuck a few tables into, but given it is a Tavern, we probably should have known. Regardless, food was great, everything came out quickly and our server was very kind and attentive.

Very welcome surprise on a blustery, snowy Valentine's Day evening! Welcoming staff, very reasonable price for a fixed menu with plenty of variety for the occasion. Nice touch with red rose for the ladies. Filet, blue cheese soufle, and asparagus entrée was perfect. We will be back

Mad Rose Tavern is on the corner in Clarendon and at first when we walked in we thought oh no. It was not full of people BUT as it says on its web site. It is up and coming. The food was delicious. I had the char and it was grilled to perfection. My husband had the flat iron steak and it was equally as good. The sides are all farm to table fresh! We were very pleasantly surprised on the quality of food. I had the wine that was a happy hour special (and we were there after 7 PM) and it was good. However I did not investigate the wine selection fully. There were several selections of beer on tap as well bottled. My husband had a Dutch beer I had never heard of and he liked it. The atmosphere was fine. As I mentioned, not a lot of people so it was hard to tell if there would have been more people if it would have been different. It had a nice bar however the bar was part of the restaurant. There was no separation between the tables of the restaurant and the bar.

My friend and I showed up at 10am for brunch, and the restaurant had barely opened. However we were seated immediately and serviced while the staff continued to set up the restaurant. There's a variety of Benedict options, which I found delightful. My friend and I were really impressed with how friendly the staff was and the quality of the brunch food. I highly recommend this place for a laid back brunch.

Enjoyed a very tasty brunch. Good deal on Mimosas because they offer $15 bottles. The service awsa great as well but the ambiance was a bit off because it is very clearly transforms to a bar/club at night. However, they were showing the World Cup game on the projector so that was a nice touch.

Sat outside, table was wobbly, was fixed by placing a napkin under one leg (which was done by customer not establishment). Ordered and took around 20-25 minutes for food to arrive on Sunday brunch morning. Omelet order was incorrect after bringing out food, customer made them aware. Another omelet was provided 10 minutes later that was still incorrect. Blood mary was so-so. Bison burger and chicken sandwich were enjoyed by those that received correct food (however one item had wrong salad- not caesar which was requested). Overall, poor listening skills on part of server and overall service poor in regard to drink refills. Food was non-memorable.
