Great experience on our first visit!
My family and I have a tradition of going to see the national Christmas tree and eating at Old Ebbit. It’s my favorite tradition! This was my boyfriends first time joining and he said “that wasn’t a meal - it was a culinary experience” and I couldn’t agree more. Every single thing was delicious and the staff was incredible. Thank you!
My wife and I had reservations and were seated immediately. The entire staff was very gracious and polite. The atmosphere was energetic and we had an excellent time.
Great service from Nick! Always so festive to stop in there during the holidays!!
As close to the White House as you can get. One of the haunts of lobbyists and govt executives. Very comfortable seating. Great decor. Staid menu, very well executed. Great staff. Extremely busy and very noisy. Reservations a must.
We arrived an about an hour early for our reservation and faced quite a crowd before us. Having confirmed our arrival at the reservations desk, we settled in for the wait. I was pleasantly surprised to be seated just five minutes later!
Our waitress was excellent, friendly and responsive. My pork chop was done to perfection. That Sam Adams seasonal draught beer set the meal off just right! I'll be back next time I'm in town!
Always a fun place, especially during the holiday season. Several bar areas, excellent food and overall great experience
Trip to White house
Definitely a dc hangout. Food and service are very good, but it is very noisy and crowded. The price of popularity and success?
Such a fun lunch - great for people watching - fun and lively. Fun servers and great food - we had a marvelous time!
Once again food and atmosphere are great . Great experience
Excellent lunch...menu fantastic, reasonable for DC, everyone in our party really enjoyed their meal and would order again. First seated us in bar area very noise so they were very accommodating and moving us. Servers very attentive and made good recommendations for our meals.
I try to make it here anytime I’m in DC. Has never disappointed in 20 years, which is quite remarkable.
Ordered wine along with oysters to start. I had a pork chop which was very thick and juicy. Our server was very attentive and offered to explain anything and everything. The ambiance is old DC and a great place to bring visitors or a place to grab a drink at the bar. Food quality was wonderful, I was there for dinner with work colleagues.
Great meal. We were able to eat in the rear dining room where the noise level was low. We had a fabulous server named Brad. Our food was very good and our service was outstanding.
Very busy and popular place however good atmosphere and ambience, our server Olga was great, very attentive and friendly, really enjoyable place for my wife’s 40th birthday while on holiday in dc.
Had an awesome time with our family for an early dinner before we went over to see the National Christmas Tree. They were very kind and conscientious about our son’s food allergies and the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu items.
4 stars for the food because the pasta was really overcooked (even the 2yo wouldn’t eat it) and my lunch-sized shrimp and grits (SO, SO delicious) just could have been rather a bit larger.
Not too fancy for our 3 littles but fancy enough for a special occasion and we were very glad to score a 4pm reservation because it gets busy quick!
We were very disappointed with the fried oyster stew, the white creamy stew has been replaced with what was a spicy sausage and it was reddish in color. We had a reservation for 12:30, we were both there and checked in at 12:30, we were told to step aside our table was being cleared, “it will only be a second” but we were not seated until 12:50! What’s the point in a reservation if you still have to wait a long time past your reservation time!?
Always outstanding. My regular when in DC.Looking forward to going back
The ambiance is amazing, but the service and the food make this place a must visit in DC!
Delicious, well priced, and overall awesome. I highly enjoyed everything about my visit
Server was capable in handling my son’s food allergy. However, I ordered a crab cake and it had shells in it- for $22 for a small crab cake, I would expect it not to have shells.
Great place for breakfast....good choices, good food, and a booth makes for a good atmospher for conversation and business-making.
Very nice food and meal experience, and have already returned. The price/quality ratio is good. Top marks.
The food is absolutepy amazing. Very pricey but worth the trip. The oysters lived up to expectations and hype.
First time visit, food was good, filet was as good as they get and reasonable pricing.
Loved your restaurant however I noticed two ladies next to me who had a cocktail but had no intentions of eating. They were obviously there to get out of the cold and sit on there phones. I just felt bad for the waitress who will lose out on tips and other people who would have loved to eat at your restaurant but could not get a reservation. They were there before me and still were not ordering after I left for dinner. The one lady even asked her friend if they would be kicked out. Something to think about.
We vist this very historic venue every time we go to Washington DC .
loved the oyster stew
thought it would be a tourist trap - it was not - just a lovely restaurant that lives up to the hype
We were accepted right on the time I had made a reservation for; excellent food; good ambiance, excellent service.
Awesome as always. Great attention to detail. Food high quality, well prepared. Friendly and attentive staff but not too present.
Best place we ate while we visited DC!
Great atmosphere, great food and outstanding service. Close and a little loud on a Saturday evening.
Great time, make reservations ahead!
We were there for a special birthday celebration that was indicated on the OpenTable reservation. When we arrived, we were taken to a table in a corner of the bar, the only open table in the restaurant. Disappointed, we sat, and planned to make the best of it. Without being asked, the maitre’d came back to our table less than 10 minutes after we had been seated, offering to move us to a table in the (quieter) main dining room. We were extremely grateful and appreciative of this gesture.
I have enjoyed many a dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill and the food and service was great. The only thing I disliked was the last two times being placed in the bar area which is noisy and ruined the ambiance. It is difficult to enjoy a great dinner when people are talking loud. It ruins the overall enjoyment of the dinner, but the food was still good. I may need to make a special notation not to place me near the bar.
This is a favorite of ours and as we are moving out of the area, we needed one last stop to provide us with our "fix" for OEG for a while - until we come back for a visit. Always great service, great food, great drink! Thank you for the years of special memories as well!
