This place was decent, but not amazing. I had a groupon for the restaurant, so it was a very affordable evening for my boyfriend and I. We stuck to the hot and cold tapas menus. The service was great, and the ingredients tasted very fresh, but nothing really stuck out to me as amazing. I would probably visit again if only they weren't closing their doors :(. I hope the waitstaff and chefs find luck elsewhere in D.C.

Please note that this restaurant closed on Aug. 31, 2016.

This use to be one of my go-to spots for lunch when I worked downtown, and I was so happy to have a chance to visit again for a dinner date! My family was in town and staying at the Mayflower right across the street. The food is delicious - they have hot/cold tapas as well as full entrees - and the service is always excellent. We closed out the restaurant but the servers never rushed us. Had a great time! Definitely recommend!

Service was great, food was good but we had a 15 percent discount coupon and they forgot to reduce the bill. After we paid and I called back at the hotel advising they did not reduce the bill they would not give me a credit so very disappointing they could not do anything . I spent over 200 so would have been nice if they could have done something....Make sure you check your bills very carefully if you are going to eat there .

Had a delicious meal of small plates, dessert, and wine with an old friend at Panache on 8/8/16. We sat outside since it was a nice evening. The food, service, and ambience were perfect. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you, Panache Restaurant!

We had a Groupon for Panache and went prior to attending a comedy show at the DC Improv. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. It was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night, but we enjoyed it! Will definitely be going back!

On the noise level rating, rather than "energetic" (too euphemistic!), I would re-label it as "overly noisy". I like Panache -- the lamb was excellent. But every time I've gone there, I've struggled with the noise level. As I'm hard of hearing, I reserved a table next to the entrance and the window, which the staff did. But at the peak of lunch hour, I still found it difficult to hear -- even my younger friend (who is not hard of hearing) commented on the noise level. It's the only reason I don't go there more often. Other than that, service and food were very good.

Came here for dinner with my mom. First note, there are no real bargains on the wine list--all wines were $10+ for pretty humdrum stuff. We were seated quickly, the restaurant was nice and quiet, and the food was decent. This is going to sound more negative than I really want it to, but this place is totally fine--if you are in from out of town and want a low-key nice serviceable meal (which is exactly what you are looking for sometimes!!), then this is a good pick, but it's not really anything super special. I do think that overall everything on the menu is priced a little too high.
