This is a restaurant in a Marriott hotel. Most hotel restaurants are function over form. This is actually quite a nice place. If it was a stand alone restaurant, it would be a nice place to eat as well. The convenience of it while staying at the hotel was very nice. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there once over the course of a 48 hour stay. We could have driven for something cheaper, and I would have if the food wasn’t as good as it was. The servings were generous. The food was creative. The service was more attentive at dinner and breakfast than it was at lunch. The manager was friendly and honest. More

I think this was my...fifth (?) time eating at Duck Duck Goose? It's become my go-to for bringing out-of-town friends or scheduling weekend brunches. Yesterday, we did the latter, and as always it was a delight. Food was excellent, coffee was strong, and the service was lovely. One of my friends ordered the shrimp and grits which apparently is extremely popular, so next time that may be on my list! More

We have been here several times before and liked it. I came here before my son and my wife arrived and was seated promptly and given water. My son ordered a rib eye steak which was very large and he liked it. I had salmon and sauteed spinach which I enjoyed a lot. My son gave me a piece of the steak and it was fabulous. Not sure what my wife had but she also liked her meal. The atmosphere is very pleasant, like a steak house but more reasonably priced. The service was excellent. We were not disappointed and we will return again. More

Discover Bethesda

Just a few miles northwest of DC lie Bethesda and Chevy Chase. This is a wealthy, sophisticated area populated by young, educated professionals exacting in their tastes, and an eclectic dining scene delivers. It’s become a dream destination for successful restauranteurs, with new arrivals raising an already demanding gastronomic bar. Like nearby Embassy Row, here, cuisine represents every continent. Szechuan Peking duck may neighbor Korean barbecue as easily as Greek shaved lamb and falafel. The smell of Indian chicken tikka masala may mingle with seared Peruvian chorizo, French coq au vin, Neapolitan pizza or Chesapeake seafood. With so many choices, you’ll find that tough competition delivers a variety of food worthy of a nation’s capital. It's no wonder DC was Bon Appétit’s 2016 pick for Restaurant City of the Year.
