A nice surprise to get such a good meal in an unknown hotel restaurant. A great and reasonably priced option

I like North Gate Grill for business lunches because of its ambiance, good menu choices, and excellent service. The restaurant is usually an easy place to get a table and an easy place for conversations. It fills up when the hotel (Capital Hilton) hosts a conference, but otherwise is spacious and open with a very pleasant street-level view of 16th Street NW from large windows that fill the dining room with light. The menu has salads and sandwiches which I have almost always found to be well-prepared and tasty. Many of the servers have been there for quite some time.

The Mother's Day brunch options could have been better. The food tasted ok. No decor for the holiday. Overall just ok.

Our server was outstanding!!! She was so personable and friendly which made our dining experience at North Gate Grill pleasurable. We had a party of 7, and all of us enjoyed the meal and venue!

This was a business lunch with an out-of-town vendor hosting us after our business meeting. They were pleased at the location; we were able to walk. The food was delicious, the setting was very comfortable, uncluttered and elegant without being stuffy.

The food is consistently good. The tables are far enough apart and the noise level low enough that you can actually have a conversation. The staff is exceptionally welcoming.

The main virtue of this restaurant is its convenience. The food is fine but pricey for what you get. The staff, however, is outstanding and does its best to provide good service.

first-service. The wait staff was so thoughtful to refill glasses and proactively provide to-go boxes-and so interactive/chatty w/our kids. We tipped accordingly.

Christmas brunch was great too. Kale and sweet potato mix-not bad! Bacon, turkey, prime rib (a little overdone but flavorful), waffles, eggs, fruit, French Toast casserole with pineapple run syrup...$10 bottomless mimosas/bloody Marys...Such a good last minute find on Christmas morning. Would like to try the regular menu.

Excellent host - erick and waitress. Our group dropped from 8 and no fuss suggested he temove a table to suit. Group of six - several took buffet and enjoyed it, others a la carte best of all super coffee!
