We brought our 8 year old son to DC for the first time. I’d read previous reviews and was excited to try it. Our table was not in the actual restaurant but in some sort of atrium of a building. Part of the dining experience here is the history, architecture and overall feel of the restaurant. Sadly we paid $193 for 3 people and did not get to experience any of it. The food was good and our server was nice although we felt rushed throughout the entire dinner. I feel there are many other places to try other than this one.

We used to be regulars at Old Ebbitts but moved making regular visits impractical. We were surprised at the price increases with raw bar items and alcoholic drinks. Unfortunately fir D.C. this circumstance is more the normal.

The food was outstanding and our server was excellent. The menu provided many choices with both value choices and more expensive items. I had oysters and the steak frites and my wife had trout, all of which were excellent. The restaurant is huge with a great atmosphere, we had a window booth and were not rushed through dinner and pre-dinner cocktails. This lived up to its reputation!

My friend and I have been going to Old Ebbitt for over 30 years. The food has always been 5 star. I commented during our lunch yesterday that I felt like the ambience was the best I have experienced there. Our waiter was awesome. I will ask for him when I return. The food was, as always, phenomenal !!!

What a wonderful experience. Everything was amazing. The waitress suggested my partner get the swordfish and it was a dream. I had the meatloaf and it was so delicious. The mashed potatoes was my favorite part. But the STAR were the oysters. It was a fantastic date night experience.
