Old Ebbitt is my favorite restaurant in DC. I was a little disappointed this time. While there is a "kid friendly" menu, I think more healthy choices would be ideal. Unfortunately, the one child who picked the macaroni and cheese was horribly disappointed. (she was hoping more along the lines of Kraft mac-n-cheese. She was not happy.) The service was slow, but they were very busy. Other than that, I will continue to take family and friends there. Lunch is probably the worst time to go, however. Crowded and noisy. We were in the back patio area, and it worked great for a group of 5. However, if/when it's just two of you...be careful!!!You will rub elbows with the table next to you. Ridiculously crammed in, and forget about hearing anything the other person is saying.

One of the top tier restaurants in Washington, D.C. The appetizers might be a bit overpriced but the main course was delicious. The hot chocolate beverage taste superior and a lot better than originally anticipated. Certainly will come back and make a reservation again.

Food was good and the history and location of this establishment make it worthwhile. However, the service we received was what made this visit outstanding. I was there with my wife and three kids. We got drinks, appetizers, entrée, and dessert in about 60 minutes. Including the process of paying, and we were only there a little over and hour. I thought the fine and speedy service was worthy of mention.

I loved the decor of the place. I had the market salad with salmon and the salmon was cooked perfectly. We ordered the cheese platter appetizer which would have been better if the cheese had been sliced and if it had more of the apple butter. The cappuccino was great.

Old Ebbitt Grill was the perfect conclusion to a short trip to DC. A classic restaurant with a great old bar, dark wood paneling, historic paintings and comfortable booths. Excellent food, excellent service, and the "liquid desserts" are a great way to end your meal.
