About Beacon Bar and Grill
Designer Walter Gagliano's second visioning of BBG introduced a fresh, romantic feel to BBG. Vermeer’s portrait of “Girl with a Pearl Earring” was the muse in creating a new look. “Our original goal was to bring the space to a cleaner more contemporary vibe. When we discovered the over scaled Vermeer print, originally created by Philipe Stark, our fondness for bold romanticism found expression and led our fabric and lighting choices in a different direction" stated Gagliano.
Chef Edgar Melendez introduces a menu that balances his own personal flair and beliefs with the wants and needs of our guests. Clean lines, bright flavors, and unique combinations best describe his culinary style. Menu items are influenced by the seasons in conjunction with local farmers and purveyors. Just like our clientele, our cuisine represents a fusion between regional and global influences. Chef Melendez's goal is to give a truly pleasant and graceful dining experience in a casual, elegant setting.

Beacon Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
I've been coming here for years and the service and food remain a constant A+. The gentleman who resides over the front seating/reservation are took the time to accommodate our party when we had another person join our reservation. The wait staff also very attentive and high energy. Keep up the good work!
Guacamole- delicious. Caesar salad - ok. Steak - nothing special. French fries - soggy. Chicken soup with rice and vegetables- good.
Overall, not a fantastic experience. The service was good but there was a restaurant phone that kept ringing, making conversation difficult.
My girlfriend’s and I have made an annual tradition of coming here for Thanksgiving brunch. The menu selections are really good and for the past 2 years, we have had a wonderful time! The service is impeccable and the unlimited champagne is a bonus for the very minimal cost of the brunch. Will definitely keep the tradition going!
The Sunday Brunch buffet choices are phenomenal and the bloody Mary's are very good. I was stuffed after my first plate but I saw many people going back for more. I wouldn't want to over do it, but in a place like this it's easy to do so watch yourself.
Our hostess was great! I've been before and I'd go again.
The restaurant was a quick walk from the Mayflower. The waiter recommended the short ribs and we both decided to try them. We were not disappointed. They were very tender with a hint of kick from the red chili pepper. We also ordered a small plate of the roasted cauliflower which was outstanding as well. Service was very fast and very friendly. Would definitely repeat our dining experience there
Beacon Bar & Grill had a wide range of Brunch options, including a 3 course tasting menu with bottomless mimosas. Went with a few school friends on a Saturday (it's right next to the UC Center) and it was perfect because it was close, fast, and had good food. Would definitely recommend for families and friends. Cute restaurant in the hotel with great service and a wide variety of options! :)
Service was very good but the food was very marginal. Three of us had lunch here; I had the turkey burger with avocado and some other toppings (it's on the menu) and the burger was so dry I just left it after a couple of bites. My two colleagues ordered salads with salmon, which they said were just OK.
This was a great meeting place for Sunday Brunch with friends., There were six in our party and all enjoyed the food and the bottomless mimosas and the fellowship. We could tell that everyone there was enjoying their time at the Grill. It was our first time visiting the Beacon grill but it will not be the last. I highly recommend the Sunday brunch with friends. We had reservations with Open Table and was seating almost immediately.
The food was ansolutely deplorable and dry. The restaurant faced extreme overcrowding and soace was limited to even stand in line for food. I adore the beacon and have never had such a horrendous time while brumching there. The only saving grace was the bartender/waiter we had-Jim was outstanding. He made the brunch bearable.
We were so disappointed with the food! The. chicken was over cooked, out of American cheese for the omelet ( only had mozzarella), and young lady at waffle station bracelet was touching the waffles - mentioned to her as a courtesy and she rolled her eyes.
We were going to have a gathering this fall for brunch; however, now will look elsewhere. Going forward, when reading bad reviews about this restaurant believe it! Not worth the money - go elsewhere!
This restaurant was recommended to me by a family member for brunch. I suggested to my friends to take me there to celebrate my birthday. We had Sunday brunch the place was awesome. The brunch had a variety of food and unlimited mimosa's, coffee, bloody Mary's etc...My friends and I were able to find parking right down the street by the church for $5 which is exceptional for DC. I highly recommend this place and will be going back again in the near future.
