Old Ebbitt Grill
Book your next event with us
Definitely worth the stop if you are visiting the nation’s capital.
Met with girlfriends to celebrate a birthday. We were seated in the back where it wasn’t so busy. Service was excellent (Samuel W.) and food delicious. We had a delightful experience.
The food was excellent and service most attentive. The noise level, however, was most unpleasant. We were seated at a small table, squeezed in between two other small tables; with the general noise level and our loud neighbors, we couldn’t have a conversation.
My friend and I were very happy to come here for dinner on our last night in DC before we head back to CT tomorrow. I can honestly say; I have no complaints. We were seated quickly and smoothly given my friend being in his wheelchair. A young man was kind enough to walk us around to another entrance to get us to our table. That was much appreciated. Our waiter did an exceptional job. Very professional, yet pleasure manner and certainly knows what he is doing. Both of our meals were beyond delicious. The fried chicken rice bowl was easily my favorite meal here this weekend. Both desserts came out well-prepared and tasted fabulous. I can see why both this location and The Hamilton are such hopping places for dinner. Great spots! Hope to visit again soon. Thank you for your hospitality.
Old Ebbitt Grill was consistently good, as usual. Food and drinks were tasty and the service was excellent!
Outstanding service and food.
Service was horrible.
Great service, ambiance, food presentation and value - all was very good; especially the raw oysters from Seattle. Hope to see those more often on menu.
A must go when in DC
Great food, fantastic atmosphere, outstanding service
I don't know what was better...the service, food, or atmosphere. We ended up with an excellent table, phenomenal service, and the food was simply outstanding. We are coming back for sure!
Extremely busy spot; only go if you have a reservation. All dishes are tasty; steak was over done, and burnt...but edible. Drinks are on par.
Thoroughly enjoyed Old Ebbitt Grill. It was my second time going. The smoked salmon pate was delicious. I ordered one to take home. I also ordered the crab cake platter. It came with fries and cole slaw. I would have like more Cole slaw and less fries. Nevertheless, it was good. Ambiance was also nice. I will return.
Tony was absolutely amazing!! We love him and our brunch so much!
We had a pleasant late lunch with out of town friends. Food was predictably fine. Service was exceptional.
The service that Bob provided was excellent, very knowledgeable of the menu and super helpful.
Late late late. 5 pm reservation. “We are just clearing some tables”. We were told our table was ready at 5.30. Got to sit down at 5.40. Manager came to our table and apologized, and comped us a couple of starters, which I appreciate. But you can’t overbook or overfill you’re tables and not get negative reviews.
Nice atmosphere, upbeat with great wait staff and good food
This is a must if your visiting DC:) an up scale pub atmosphere
I thought overall the place was great! We only had a minor food issue, that was addressed
Not bad. Cook fast. Free Iced Water
It was fabulous. We have been there before, always great.
Great meal!! Loved the Parmesan Fish!
Even though it gets pretty loud in there on a busy night, the service is still fabulous. Quick and courteous without feeling like you are being pushed out the door. The food was terrific (I had the scallops and pumpkin cheesecake). I am glad I didn't find this place sooner because then I would be broke.
Food is amazing and a great value. Best food around. Ambiance was unparalleled, and location was perfect.
The crab and artichoke dip was to die for. I debate coming back to DC just for it! Great service and food!
Well, we had a reservation for 1230pm, but had to stand and wait 10 mins. till we were seated. The chardonnay I'd ordered was not the chardonnay that the server put on the table. He brought the correct chardonnay, but the glass smelled of dish-washing detergent.
My pasta was not served hot and had so much salt in the sauce, I couldn't eat it.
The server was very polite and empathetic.
Our server Calman was the best. He stayed on top of our order and made sure everything was exactly what done right..
A must visit when in DC. We've been several times and will return again
Our server Olah was outstanding on every level, she made our most recent experince all the better.
Attentive waiter "mike". Thank you, food was good, nice looking place. Worth a visit!
The Clam Chowder is amazing and the cheeseburger with american cheese is outbof this world. Even the fries are amazing.
Oysters are good too.
New crispy chicken bowl was an excellent addition to the menu. Will order it again. Flawless service, as always. A favorite must visit every time we’re in the District.
Candace was our waitress & she was awesome! She knew the menu inside & out. Made good suggestions and got us our food in a timely manner.
Of course, it was just as expected! Incredible food and service, wonderful ambiance. If noise bothers you, don’t go for dinner. We didn’t mind at all.
We’d decided to make this our special meal while vacationing in DC off the recommendation of another couple in our hotel. We went early in the afternoon as we heard the wait could be long. The food was good but not outstanding. The service was good but she came so often and moved dishes so quickly that it made us feel rushed. We were seated in a booth so I didn’t really get the chance to look around. Overall everything was fine but not the level of experience I was expecting.
You were on my bucket list for a visit and it was my 83rd birthday. Adrienne M was my wait staff and did great. Thanks for the memory.
The food is great and the excellent. Better to reserve for lunch.
Wonderful experience! The restaurant is beautiful and very well-maintained with a cozy feel. We didn't try any drinks, but the food was delicious. (Husband had the filet and I had the scallops. Chocolate chip bread pudding for dessert.) The best part was our waiter, Kalman. He was a pleasure - so gracious and attentive without hovering. A+ atmosphere, food, and service. Very reasonably priced for a relatively upscale place. We'll definitely go back next time we're in the DC area.
Great overall experience. Dining room crowded and noisy. Food and service excellent
Went for birthday celebration. Overall experience was good.
