    Tapas sizes good for four people, a little too big for two if you want to taste many on the menu - they are all well prepared. When full, service can be slow and noise level high. Big tables can accommodate large groups. Nice selection of wines from Spain. Will go back if in town next time.

    Service is poor. Waiters disappear completely. It was a lucky moment when you could have a waiter to order something. They didn’t bring all what we ordered. They said when we ask, at the end of the night, they didn’t have what we order (they never told us). At the end they added it in the check, so we have to wait more and more time until a waiter appears to fix the check. Not recommended. Valet parking is extremely expensive even thought they validate a half.

    Went with a group of friends for a nice dinner in DC. Was attracted to Arroz because of reservation availability and strong reviews. Reviews do not lie! Great food that is fairly priced. Quantities are small but that makes you appreciate every bite a little bit more. Definitely recommend seafood bomba rice. Honestly more upscale than it gets credit for

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in DC, which is why I chose Arroz to celebrate my Birthday. As usual, the food was wonderful. I had a half order of the Pork Berkshire Pig Bomba Rice, while my husband had a half order of the Seafood Bomba Rice. They no longer serve the Duck Bomba Rice, which was delicious. It appeared that 1 server was handling all the tables. Given the workload, he did pretty good. When we made the reservations on Open Table, we were asked if it was a special occasion. We said it was my Birthday and we wanted a booth by the wall. They initially tried to seat us elsewhere, but quickly and pleasantly redirected us to a booth. However, there was never any acknowledgment of my Birthday. None! They didn’t even ask if we were celebrating something special, as many restaurants do. Pretty disappointing given we had just gone to Vinoteca for Happy Hour for the first time. The bartender (Pasha), upon hearing my husband toast my Birthday, totally surprised us by presenting the most beautiful and delicious desert for 2, with a candle! How special and what a wonderful surprise. We will definitely be going back.....to Vinoteca.

    I chose Arroz for a special occasion - meeting my significant other’s family for the first time, and it didn’t disappoint. Everyone loved the food, the decor, and we all had a lovely evening. His mom is especially crazy about the burnt eggplant dish and wants the recipe. :)

    Unhappy with my experience at Arroz -- dinner took nearly 2.5 hours for two people that ordered five tapas plates between us. Our server was horrendous; I've never had worse service at a restaurant, and that is not an exaggeration. I asked for menu recommendations and she said, "hold on I'll be back to explain the menu," and did not return for a solid 15 minutes. The restaurant was not busy, and I could see our waitress lounging at the bar chatting with coworkers. After several frustrations, I had to get up twice and find her -- once to ask for our drinks, and a second time to ask for the check. She ended up taking several things off the bill because they came out topped with the food I'm allergic to (that she offered to leave off the dishes). The food itself was mediocre but lacking depth/variety of flavor. I did enjoy the merguez sausage dish, but the rest was unmemorable at best. I would not recommend going here, even if you're staying in the hotel Arroz is located in.

    for a hotel-sited restaurant, it's a great place. It offers great appetizer/tapa sort of stuff....manchego cheese, pecans taste tinted with cardamom, gambas al ajillo, albondigas (the ones we tried) were superb.....my wife and I split the seafood bomba rice dish and were disappointed somewhat...it was way too salty (they admitted an error) and as fan of paella I was hoping this would be one, but no, it's more of a rice-based stew.....the wait said it is modeled after a Moroccan variant (I love Moroccan stuff) ....and my white wine sangria was to die for.....so, mostly yeah, very small boo, bit pricey...but hey this is central DC

    Burnt Eggplant is easily the best of the tapas we tried. And the warm fresh Mediterranean bread it came with divine. Grilled octopus a bit dry. Wonderful rioja. Will return to try their entrées. Service was perfect and dishes appropriately paced. Noise level was a bit loud, but being in a booth made conversation a little easier.

    A great tapas restaurant. Menu not too large. Favorites are the burnt eggplant and lamb meatballs. Prawns we're fabulous. Charred veggies good too but too large we couldn't finish. Large wine and cocktail menu. Noisy but we sat in booth kept noise down. Many convention goers no children. Service great too. Loved it!

    Decent food, poor management. We ate at Arroz on a Friday night when the restaurant was half-empty. We were served by a very sweet, conscientious server on her first night. Unfortunately, she was struggling, not shadowing a senior server, and there were hiccups (and one member of our party has a severe allergy). But that is not the reason for the poor review. The (male) manager came over and was decidedly rude. We eat in a ton of restaurants all over the world, I would never recommend this one. In addition to rude management, the food was bland and oily. However, our meal the next night at Blue Duck Tavern was delicious and the service good and informative. Go there instead.

    This is my third time going to Arroz and each tune it has not failed me. The service is great and the food even better. Also the drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic are great. Try them for brunch and just order a few dishes to share. For dinner we also had an amazing dish of paella which is good for two people. I highly recommend this place for brunch and dinner.

    Most inattentive service you could imagine. Ruined an otherwise good (not great) meal. The waiter ignored our group of 6 all night and the restaurant was not overly busy. There are many great restaurants in the area - this does not compete.
