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.

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.

Art and Soul is a great spot for various dinner occasions. Our waiter was attentive and gave us time to be with our friends. Food was interesting and delish. You should check it out.

A quiet pre Super Bowl brunch at my home away from home in DC. The Chicken and waffles was just what the doctor ordered on a rainy Sunday. Delicious! My guest thoroughly enjoyed the Corned Beef Hash Benedict. Flavors were amazing! The service was great. Adrian was our main server but the staff worked as a team to ensure our experience was delightful. Can't wait to get back for another visit!

Food was tasty, but some of the staff were not especially hospitable and the service was incredibly slow. We had to ask for place settings and not all the diners received the items they requested. And almost $5 for a cup of drip coffee that was never refilled?

Three of us went to Arts & Soul for Sunday lunch. We all had different options of the Restaurant Week menu. The food was OK, deserts better than sour food. But service was bad. Inattentive, slow, distant. The place is well lighted for brunch/lunch, and the athmosphere really nice. I am giving the benefit of the doubt and will come back soon.

For restaurant week, the choices were not pleasing. I had to change my meal selection b/c the shrimp/grits were not good had no taste and the shrimp were infant sized shrimp. The menu needs to better.

I went to this restaurant many years ago and it was beyond delicious. I guess I had high expectations because when I returned, the food was dramatically different. I wasn't a fan and probably won't return because of the food but hey, we all have different taste buds.

Went to Art an Soul for lunch and I was pretty underwhelmed. The server was rushing us through the whole process and the food wasn't impressive. My French fries were wilted and over seasoned. My bun was drenched in butter. I was disappointed because I was looking forward to coming here.

Very good dinner, and surprisingly so since this is a restaurant in a hotel. Really nothing negative to say. Excellent fish and short ribs, very well prepared and presented.

My husband and I visited the restaurant on Saturday, Jan 6. It was a super cold night, right after the snow in the DC region, so it was very quiet. We got a great parking spot as result. The ambiance was great. The restaurant is cozy. The food was good. I had the Shrimp and Grits. Although it was very good, I thought the shrimp would be bigger. They were very small. Kind of like the frozen kind you get from grocery store. The grits also very tasty but the ratio of grits to sauce was off. Too much sauce and not enough grits. Again, while I enjoyed the food, it would only be a one time visit for me. Our waitress, Kenya, was outstanding - full of personality but not phony and very attentive but not intrusive. My only complaint was the booming bass from the club in the hotel. We were seated along the "bean wall". Suggestion, if you go at 8:30 or later, sit closer to the front of the restaurant.

Service was very slow even though we arrived early for lunch and the restaurant was not busy. Burger was well done when I ordered medium well. The fries were saturated with terrible tasting spices. It is hard to ruin a burger and fries but the did it. One companion sent back the shrimp and grits because she said the dish just tasted like tabasco sauce. Food took forever to prepare and the server forgot to put in the order for our appetizer. Would not recommend. I used to enjoy this restaurant and the food, but not lately.

I was very disappointed with food and the service. We had a business lunch today, the restaurant was not overly crowded but the service was extremely poor. We had a dairy free order which was delivered with cheese. We asked for a refill on ice tea which never showed up, we had to ask several times for water and condiments. In addition to the service the cost was over priced and the food bland. Not sure what has changed but will not be going back.
