Very good food and service
The ambiance and service are top notch. Both our server and Nichola the sommelier were absolutely the best, professional, helpful and knowledgeable. I was disappointed with the food. I ordered bouillabaisse and it came with the blandest mayonnaise, no rouille, no garlic taste and the broth was actually so salty, I couldn't finish:(
Never been here before. But great atmosphere, good service, wonderful food, and a nice quiet place to talk with friends. The grilled octopus and lobster ravioli were spectacular. So was dessert - Yazu something? - though I have no idea what it was. And after lunch we retired to the comfortable St. Regis bar for more drinks and conversation.
Blueberry Pancakes were divine.
Ambience was perfect and my main entree, the braised lamb shank was Amazing....
Location, staff, ambiance is wonderful. Food is pretty terrible. Very salty and/or covered with butter. Not good at all. Pretty disappointed.
Amazing! In every way.
We had to request water, one main was wrong so we didn't eat at the same time, one drink was wrong, and sadly, they TRIED to automatically decide tip, $25.60 tip for horrible service and bad food and they knew it was our 10th Anniversary....
Food, service, ambience were all wonderful! Our waiter and the other staff made us feel like we were the only customers in the restaurant.
The most perfect brunch in DC! I live in NY and make it a priority to gather the girls for brunch here every time that I visit the District. There's so much opulence, top-notch service, delicacies... it is definitely a treat that I look forward to. The food is delicious, the service is excellent it is a true gem!
Great ambience. Great service. Great food.
Chose this restaurant for a work lunch. One of our colleagues is vegan. He asked for a vegan meal, but he was served a meal that was not vegan. Two of our diners did not enjoy their sandwich and burger. Overall, it is a quiet place for a work lunch, but there are better options in the neighborhood.
The food was memorable and the service was impeccable.
Tried this place a few weeks ago and was not thrilled. The food was very good, particularly the cauliflower and filet mignon, but it wasn't so incredible that it justified the high cost. You can get a comparable meal for a lower price, but no complaints outside of that. Our issue was largely with the ambiance (to be fair, it's a beautiful space) but children were screaming and jumping on tables, big parties (possibly a wedding) raised the volume of the place, and no one was dressed for a dinner out but rather a tailgate. It just really wasn't the date night we hoped for.
We went there for restaurant week and was disappointed that they did not open up the entire menu for the tasting. I understand the profit margin may be way less if they do this but they could always upcharge for special items like lobster or veal. The only thing that I liked was the cauliflower appetizer and the rest was just mediocre. My husband ordered the filet Mignon and that was good but many restaurants can do this with perfection as well. This did not stand out. I ordered salmon and it was poorly done because the fish was over cooked. It was not a busy night so I was expected to not have anything go wrong with such a simple dish. The skin not crispy on the fish not sure if that’s how it was supposed to be but what was disappointing was that the salmon was over cooked and my husband who is not a chef makes this dish better. I picked this restaurant because it was on the Washingtonian that it was one of the best restaurants and should not be missed during restaurant week. I am highly disappointed of this choice. The place however was absolutely amazing and beautiful for pictures. Service was good too. I cannot say the same for food.
Waited 20 mins for water and a menu. Food was OK, whole experience was subpar...would not return.
The best Filet Mignon I’ve ever had! Love the aesthetic of the dining room especially the ceiling, the wine wall and the booths. Service was fine at first but we felt that our server disappeared on us towards the end.
Loved the ambience. Alhambra is a classy, sophisticated, and elegant place. My Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly.
Truly elegant place, wonderful service with beautiful interior, amazing and creative French chef, and great quality HEALTHY food!
Highly recommended for dinner with someone very special, also works perfectly well with business partners, or for special occasions with friends.
We visited for Restaurant Week, the menu did not have many options, but the food we ordered was nice. Service was very kind, the place is beautiful but it was really quiet.
The two ravioli dishes were excellent (porcino and lobster), which matched the excellent service from Ana and her team!
I had the lobster ravioli which was amazing!!! As usual, the crafted cocktails, although expensive, are delicious and uncommon. Try the items with a star since they are house specialties. I live in DC and really enjoy the service here.
Great meal! Special dessert for our anniversary
We went for brunch. I had the lobster benedict and my husband the chicken and waffles. They were both outstanding. The hot starter bar, dessert bar, and seafood bar were all excellent as well. Bloody Mary's and Mimosas were also good. We will return.
Great setting for a delicious brunch!
The food and service were excellent! Porcini mushroom ravioli and cauliflower tanging - best meal all year!
Beautiful setting. Professional service. Delicate and delicious food. Lovely for a special occasion.
Wonderful Sunday jazz brunch experience. Having a discount from the Gilt City voucher makes this expensive brunch more accessible...lovely ambiance, high-quality food, and wonderful, not-rushed service.
Stick a fork in it, it's done. At one time it may have been a good place. That time is long gone. It's another place waiting too long to upgrade or change. Weak wines, the good ones horribly overpriced. I knew before I was told, no mussels, or Lobster to be careful. It seems that the neighborhood is in need of an upgrade, but hey, what do I know. I'm a tourist.
I would recommend with caveats. Nice location. Brunch was just Ok. Limited menu and seems like quality has dipped.
Ok to return with travelzoo price point not full price
Every staff member was friendly without hovering. We felt very welcome. The food was great. I had plenty of seafood in my bouillabaisse, but more importantly the flavors were well-balanced. My wife enjoyed her halibut (and so did I) for the same reasons. The truffle fries are a must!!! My only confusion is why the restaurant is marketed a Mediterranean place, when it seemed like there was only one dish from each section (app, entre) that seemed characteristically Mediterranean, but that could be due to my own ignorance. The food was good regardless.
great ambience, good food, varied choices, great service, entertaining waiters especially Sam
Food was amazing. The lamb shank was falling off the bone. The service was prompt and took care of us throughout our brunch. Excellent first time experience!
I actually was booking to have Afternoon Tea but reservation was for brunch but the staff was wonderful and was able to get me and husband in for tea. Which I would highly recommend. It came with tea and both savory and sweet treats. Very elegant and a treat.
It was amazing! The staff were all so welcoming and accommodating! Very pleasant evening and experience
Outstanding food & service. Highly recommend!! Every aspect of our evening and dinner was perfect.
Our dining experience was wonderful. Food & presentation first class. Our server was knowledgeable & friendly & we enjoyed talking w him.
We ordered a bottle of white wine that we would have preferred to be chilled & it took a bit of time to get it chilled on ice. Otherwise happy & will return.
Took over 10 after being seated to see our server. Service didn’t get much better after that.
Food was excellent. Good value on wine list. Attitude of staff borders on arrogance
Nice food, great service. Beautiful and intimate space.
They have a new Chef and menu! Delish.
