K Street, the road to the White House, is also the proud home to P.J. Clarke’s—the storied American Saloon with a history that dates back to the late 1800s. The original P.J. Clarke’s in Manhattan has stood beneath rows of skyscrapers for nearly 130 years, collecting famous and infamous regulars. Appreciated for the convivial ambiance and classic fare, P.J. Clarke’s is the quintessential American Saloon.
In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.

The skirt steak was very tough. I'd have sent it back except it was a business lunch. Everything else was the usual fine P.J. Clarke's quality and the service was superb.

A great ambiance. A great place to eat and relax. The food was great and the service was on point. It’s a must to eat at P.J. Clarke’s every time we are in the district.

First the "Dirty" martini came with no olives...then another cocktail was so watered down with the mixer, there could not have been 1/2 oz of crown in the glass at $12.
Small 8oz bottles of coke at $3.95, no refills.
$44 piece of steak and that was all that was on the plate!
$9 side of spinach was barely a portion for one.
and the food was bland and plain.
Worst $300 spent on a meal... Not worthy of Open Table in my opinion.

We were staying at the Hilton so it was great for P.J. Clarke's to be open before and after Christmas. The manager and waitstaff are very nice and great service all around. There is plenty to look at in this restaurant.

Food was good. Service was great. Chicken pot pie was perfect comfort food for a cold rainy evening

P J Clarke's is an excellent lunch option in the K Street corridor. Food, service, and ambience are nice -- but don't go expecting it to be a quiet venue -- it is a lively spot.

Picked this for a get together lunch for coworkers. Menu was not the same as on their website for DC location. Rather pricey but did get decent portions. The food however was unremarkable.
I’ll pass this place up next time we plan a group lunch.
