Art and Soul
Helmed by Executive Chef Douglas Alexander, Art and Soul exudes true warmth and hospitality. Playful regional elements such as hand-painted farm signs and traditional folk art are also used throughout the space in honor of the D.C. restaurant's regional influences. In warmer weather, an expansive front patio provides an al fresco dining option with a fire-pit and grill.

I am still dreaming of the food. It was stupendous.
Very dog friendly, great service and food.
Limited menu. Loud meeting in adjacent room No straws. A paper one would have been sufficient
Went at end of night on a rainy quiet night. Server/bar tender went above and beyond to take good care of us before kitchen closed. Food was excellent and nicely plated even at end of their day.
This restaurant has been on our must-dine list for awhile and we finally made it. Wow! The experience was outstanding. Our dishes were amazing but the treat was our personal waiter Vernon. He alone is the reason my wife and I will add this restaurant to our top-5 and return very soon.
Great service and location. Servers were superb. Highly recommend for events and super meal!
Great cozy spot. Food is good. Staff is extremely friendly and patient even funny. Flexible in regard to food allergies too. All was great,
The ambiance and service of the waiters was exceptional. The food was just good. Each entree had an interesting pairing. The duck was paired with smoked (very Smokey) apples and potatoes whereas the steak was paired with avocado, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. The lobster deviled eggs were pretty interesting too. It had more of a Mexican flavor with the lobster mixed with cilantro, red onions, and lime juice (lobster salsa).
Visiting DC recently a friend recommended Art&Soul for dining. We were able to get a reservation easily. The staff was very attentive. I had the Shrimp and Grits which were excellent! (Would have loved a little more in the bowl, yummy!)
Perfect martini. Tasty pate and warm bread. Awesome chicken. Great service. I’ll definitely be back.
We went to Art & Soul for a business meeting. The service and food were wonderful.
Very nice Thanksgiving dinner buffet. Food was good and buffet offered many choices. We arrived an hour early, and they accommodated us. Servers were super but stretched. Will try the restaurant the next time we are in DC.
We had not been to this restaurant for Thanksgiving in a couple of years and the quality and type of the food items were disappointedly inferior to that of our prior Thanksgiving visit two years ago. For a $65.00/person fee, we expected much better than the offerings typical of a "Golden Carral" which I am sure would have been much better. We also noticed that the restaurant was far from full capacity- contrary to our last visit - maybe that was also a sign!
I decided on Art and Soul for a Thanksgiving Dinner out in DC (no dishes) ! The food was outstanding they had plenty of choices and all were top quality. Turkey and gravy hit the spot with traditional spices. The hickory ham was juicy and sweet. All the sides from green beans to mac n cheese. Would definitely recommend for the price!
Art and Soul is a hidden gem in Capitol Hill with a great Southern menu and good wine list though it is a bit overpriced, it is rarely overly crowded. More DC locals should check it out!
Decent food; amibence has deteriorated, and prices are excessive.
Soup was good
The only misstep was the way they served the devilled eggs. Need to be on a bed of something so they don't slide around. However, everything else was exceptional. Loved the duck confit.
Great food and service!
Best swordfish I’ve ever eaten!
Cocktail not exactly right (I have been drinking and mixing negronis for years), burger was tasty but greasy—I had heartburn for the rest of the day.
The food was delicious! Service was very good, too. I️ was worried when we arrived because the restaurant was pretty empty for 7:30 on a Saturday night. But we were very happy with the whole experience!
My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Art and Soul. The food was truly unique, colorful and delicious without being too heavy. I had the scallops and my husband had the pork and kimchi ragu. In addition to great food, our server Kenya was fantastic!
Great place to while away time before catching the train. Unrushed atmosphere. Food was good not great, but coffee was unlimited!! Staff very courteous and attentive.
Poor service. This place used to be so busy and there was hardly anyone there this time. It has potential to get back to being the “place to eat” but not with service like I had tonight.
Convenient to our hotel and recommended by my son who lives in DC, it was a very nice meal with excellent service. The interior had a nice decor, but it was a little loud and quite cold inside. Overall an enjoyable experience.
Food was INCREDIBLE!! The staff was so sweet and attentive.
I did not enjoy my experience at this restaurant because my server was not the best and the food was not what I expected. The lemon pancakes were good but the menu implies the berries are included in the price but it’s 1.00 and this is misleading. Second the geechie boy grits were not good. The pork sausage was bigger than a corn dog and not cooked throughly.
Delicious food! It was a little dark sitting out on the patio, but overall a nice place!
Excellence food. Great ambience! Will recommend to anyone.
Up from Charlottesville for theater at Wooly Mammoth and some Capitol area sites. Great location for both and excellent dinner and breakfast prior to both.
Beautiful evening to sit outside on patio
Perfect amount of attention from server! She was exceptional! Food was good dessert really good and just the right amount. Cocktail was very refreshing.
Overall enjoyed the evening very much
What a wonderful restaurant! Food and service was spot on. Sat outside and it was a perfect evening.
Great food and atmosphere. Love that they’re dog friendly.
The experience at Art and Soul was amazing. The food, drinks and service were fabulous. I will definitely return to try another meal.
delicious brunch as always. Suggest you feature or recommend the chef-cured bacon.
Excellent food every time I eat there
Always great food and service
Excellent experience, surprised it wasn’t more crowded on a Friday night. Food was outstanding
Server was pleasant however I have a huge thing about putting my mouth on restaurant glasses and requested a straw but they no longer carry them in the restaurant. Also I selected this restaurant due to the s’mores French toast on their website but was told it had been discontinued for over 6 months. That was very disappointing.
