Delicious food. Great service but the event happening at the hotel took away from the romantic atmosphere.
Great dinning experience with friends! The service was great. Food was delicious and made for sharing. The reservation was easy to arrange. The restaurant was lively but not overcrowded. The servers were very professional and cordial, thinking for the group when we placed our dinner orders, and leaving us to enjoy our meal without hurrying us out. The only thing to note is the menu is slightly on the pricy side, but personally I think it was well worth the overall experience.
Amazing service, outstanding food
For a restaurant called 'Arroz', you would expect the signature rice dish to be better. The best part of the meal was the ham, which they did not make, though the bread that accompanied it was also good. Basically just go to Jaleo.
Mother in law in town
Charred asparagus salad is exceptional... followed by the flat iron steak - a truly delicious meal. I tried a single order of their signature aged duck bomba rice dish last time I was here; it was good but not exceptional. I'm going to stick with the small plates in the future.
Wonderful meal! We liked sharing the small plates. The food and service was outstanding. We also liked the layout of the restaurant—especially the small booths.
Denise was an amazing server- def request her- she is the best!!!!! And the food was stellar!!!
Great food. Duck Romba was a big blast. Great creation by the chef. The duck breast was perfectly cooked. The rest of the food and service was also impressive
Food wasn’t great
It was a wonderful dining experience. However, the food is definitely overpriced. Worth the trip if planning to indulge/pay the price for it.
The pork rice dish was amazing! Way better than I expected.
Mark was our server and he was fantastic. He makes a great comedy duo with Ryan. The food was excellent. We had the cauliflower, eggplant, the bone marrow and patatas bravas.
When you have a great experience you want a restaurant to get everything perfect which is why i want to mention the room was way too bright and the music almost nonexistent. All ambiance came from service and the food.
Also the bartender remade my old fashioned (too sweet the first time)
Had a great experience. Food was fabulous. The cod was excellent.
Lovely room. Actually quite quiet for the number of tables and that is refreshing. However, the food is just ok; Kapnos Kousina is much better food. Prices are way too expensive for what is served. Lamb ribs very fatty and served with uninteresting salad; burned eggplant was tasteless; bombes were good but not nothing special; octopus had funny aftertaste. Dessert was good. One item we ordered did not show up at our table. Overall, energetic and interesting setting and location, but clearly not worth the money.
Great dinner! All very tasty!
Wow this was not a good place for lunch. The food was uninspired - some options greasy, some bland and the cheese and meat sides were so tiny, it was ridiculous. We were told to come back for a rice dish as the staff acknowledged lunch options were limited. I can’t imagine going back to pay those prices for rice.
Food was good. Service was not the best. But drinks were nice.
Great food! Enjoyed the octopus appetizer, arroz bomba and desert. The best "arroz" I have ever had. We will be back again. Our friend wanted to come back to bring his family. The server was great -very helpful and accommodating.
Arroz is a MUST in DC. Everything was spectacular! The food was unbelievable and the waiter's recommendations we're so helpful. Drinks and dessert are just fantastic too!
Mike Isabella's restaurants continue to underwhelm and lack luster in a city like DC with a flux of new and exciting restaurants burgeoning.
Food was quite priced and the taste and quality of the dishes left much to be desired.
The Gamja Ajillo which is usually a simple yet delightful dish lacked proper garlic and was far too salty.
The fried cauliflower with Pig's ear and the croquettas were so-so
The bone marrow was the only redeeming dish!
Certainly not a restaurant i would recommend given the price point vs. quality!
Quality food and excellent service
Food and service was excellent. Loved the mix of African spices with a tapas service.
It was my birthday and I had looked forward to eating at Arroz. We loved the food in Andalucia and Morroco and we had also read the rave reviews. We found the decor interesting but the food left a lot to be desired, service was good, ambience not special. It was overpriced. I will not recommend this restaurant.
Great service, great cocktails, and a variety of options for the foodies!
Great food. We did the testing menu, and there was nothing on the menu we didn't like!
Pricey but some of the best and most creative dishes we’ve had in a long time. Plus, our water was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely return.
All the food was too spicy to even eat. The value for what we paid was not worth anything. The wait staff noticed that we didn’t eat the food and still did not address the question how was your meal tonight?
Food critic Sietsema has spoken positively of this restaurant. This proves that even well -regarded food critics can make mistakes. The 3 of us who were there last night agree that it is overpriced, of unimpressive quality and definitely not worthy of a return visit even allowing for an "off night." The server was polite but not of the level one might expect for a restaurant that charges top dollar. Specifics are not needed here, but we had to ask for water. The good news is that they brought the various plates more or less to the right people. We had mostly small plates with the chicken large plate as an add-on. The eggplant dish was weird and hardly worth $15. The ribs were good and the potatoes were also good. The chicken for $30 or so was somewhat unusually presented but not special by any measure. Owner Isabella must possess some kind of low view of patrons, figuring that a place without even tablecloths (and with no soap dispenser working in the men's room), exceptionally expensive small plates and an otherwise very limited set of choices if one does not want a major (and expensive) rice dish (patterned on paella but apparently with a lot of fried rice included), and even desserts that do not impress is a formula for success in Washington, DC. The restaurant Sunday evening had only 4 tables filled, which perhaps suggests that the public is not so easily hoodwinked for long.
We went to Arroz for brunch to celebrate our good friend’s birthday, we had a wonderful time. Great food, great service, restaurant is beautiful, we all love it. I’m going back to Arroz with my husband!
This was my third time eating at Arroz. The food and service never disappoints. In terms of ambiance, however, towards the end of our meal there was a roving troubador/mariachi-type group. I purposely mix these otherwise distinct adjectives because, while the look and outfits of the band were of traditional, Spanish troubadors, the music was straight mariachi and poorly performed (think tonality of an air raid alarm in WWII London).
In addition to the musical cacophony, one member of the group went around to the various tables soliciting donations. While the entreaties were most polite, it reminded me of my days in New York City when rose peddlers would come into restaurants and zero-in on obvious couples to buy their wares. You were thus faced with the dilemma of looking to your date like you were a cheap cad, or looking like a schmuck who vastly overpaid for a cheap, wilting rose. No one needs that sort of pressure when you are already paying top-dollar for your food.
So, Arroz, keep up the amazing job with the food and service (the traditional bomba, not an early favorite of mine due to the burnt, crusty bits on the bottom of the obviously un-stirred paella pan, was markedly improved). Just lose the roving entertainment. Your patrons will assuredly thank you.
Spectacular menu. On a business trip. Ate here Saturday after colleagues raves about it from their Friday visit.
The food at Arroz is delicious! I stopped in for a quick bite at the counter, and was delighted by the quality. I had the house sangria and the grilled shrimp small plate. The shrimp didn't come with enough bread to soak up the divine garlicky sauce, so I ordered a side of a pita-type bread. Very good overall.
First in my life that actually liked everything in a MI joint. Food and service were great!!
Amazing tapas, perfectly prepared.
Creative and Tasty. Offering more small plate options would be welcome. Price was a bit high.
Muy buena alternativa en el Marriot Marquis. Recomiendo el menú degustación para probar la excelente cocina del restaurante con un buen maridaje de vinos.
The food and service were awesome, and our drinks were great too. The World Famous is an experience if you like fruity drinks. Overall, we liked the restaurant but it’s pricey.
Food was delicious. Some of the portions were smaller than anticipated, but overall a wonderful meal. Loved the burnt eggplant and cauliflower, and the Jamon and Egg Bomba rice was amazing. Look forward to returning.
My niece was in town.
