Our kitchen serves simple, honest food that reflects a devotion to quality and responsibility made possible by partnerships with like-minded farmers, artisans and growers who provide products that are sustainably sourced, whenever possible.

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. restaurants regional influences. In warmer weather, an expansive front patio provides an al fresco dining option with a fire-pit and grill.

Went to breakfast with my girlfriend here. She loves sitting on the patio and it was the most beautiful day for it. Our server was attentive and helpful. Everything came out in a timely manner. I had the lemon pancakes and they were nice and fluffy. She had the biscuits and gravy. Eggs were cooked perfectly and it was not drenched in gravy like some places do. Very impressed overall. Ambience was amazing as well. Loved the decor. Will be back with family members soon.

We had Sunday brunch outside on the patio. Food was EXCELLENT!
However, several of the patrons had dogs with them on the patio, which made for some VERY loud moments. Hard to have a conversation over top of dogs barking at each other. Next time: likely to select indoors. Also, there are no fans in the patio, which made it very hot under the umbrellas. Management should invest in a fan system, or misters, to make the patio more enjoyable.
Our server was excellent, as the the bar staff who took care of us prior to our table being ready on the patio.

The fact that I can bring my dog to brunch makes the experience well worth it! I enjoyed my time. Cinnamon roll and deviled eggs were to die for. The chicken and waffle was good but left me wanting more. If you’re not a fan of dense waffles- I do not recommend you order that!

Great brunch with beef rib hash and eggs Benedict. Outstanding food. Service was a bit slow and they ran out of espresso drinks.

Overpriced and underwhelming. Very small portions and marginal service. Incredibly loud and difficult to hold a conversation. Wine was very good, but I ordered a beer! The only plus was the location as our group was staying at the hotel.

The restaurant is not as good as it use to be. All night it felt and tasted like something was off or maybe the spring/summer menu is better.

We went to Art and Soul for a business lunch. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly on arriving the at the restaurant. The tables are well spaced allowing for private discussion and low noise. The menu is diverse and gives plenty of options and the food is delicious and well priced.

Definitely not worth the hype. Limited options - almost all meals had either chorizo or andouille so if you’re not a sausage fan you’re out of luck.

My husband and I are trying a vegan diet but it is hard to find healthy delicious food. We had brunch here and it was AMAZING best kale quinoa salad ive ever had, heirloom beets pistachio nuts sesame yummy. We also had lemon pancakes - light and fluffy. Service was friendly and stellar! They of course have other great looking options for meat eaters but with such great meatfree options we didnt feel wistful one bit! Thank you!

The meal was fantastic and so was the waiter! Only issue I had was with the ambiance, the lights in the restaurant were too bright from our table and we wished we were seated on the back wall where they would not have been directly shining in our eyes

I've been going to Art and Soul for years. It's nice to go to a restaurant where I am greeted warmly and always receive the best possible service. Yesterday, I chose a menu item and asked for a slight modification. They were able to easily accommodate the change.

Was there for brunch at 2 pm one Sunday. Overall the food was very good and well presented. However, they were out of the hamburger which is a first for my 30 plus years of dining. The espresso coffee at the end was terrible -- it tasted like molasses at best..

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.
