Waited too long to return to this DC institution. Went for a a birthday celebration and it did not disappoint. Stellar service, exceptional food, and perfect fine dining atmosphere. Nice to see most of the the people still dressed appropriately! Special shout out to Michale - the new Som - for great guidance with both food and wine!

How lovely to be able to hear your dinner companions! Quiet room although there were other diners in the room with us. Quiet piano music playing too. Food was outstanding and service was excellent. Cocktails were delicious. What was wrong with anything? Nothing really but a slightly more inventive menu would have been refreshing. Duck was especially wonderful. Highly recommend.

Lovely space... declining food selection... quality... and service. Over the years we really depended upon the Bombay Club for its reliable old school Indian cuisine and exceptional food quality. On two recent visits we were disappointed with the paired down menu and indifferent service. Maybe it's the pandemic. Maybe it's just Joe Biden's America. Whatever, we won't be returning anytime soon.

Party of four all anticipating a delightful experience. We ordered a wide variety of drinks, appetizers and main courses. The food was generally delicious, although not presented well (bowls of food covered in thick sauces of various browns, without garnishes or any distinctive flair, all tasting good but seemingly ladled from pots in a soup kitchen.) Atmosphere elegant, staff sharply dressed. Originally seated next to the piano--when will restaurants learn that nobody wants to sit right next to the piano? The Prime Issue: consistently disorganized and rudely intrusive service: We're a quiet pleasant foursome in our sixties, but were abused by the waiter for everything from looking up an Indian dish on a cell phone to not closing our menus to show we were ready to order (we hadn't even been asked if we wanted any drinks yet), to being handed three dessert menus, seeing one of us was without, and turning and walking away. Bottom Line: decent food, but no better than any other decent Indian restaurant, and certainly will not return for more abuse.

We have eaten at the Bombay Club for all of the reasons above. We’ve been here while we were dating; for dinner w clients; meeting friends my husband hadn’t seen in 30 years; and now sometimes because it’s today’s craving. Love the atmosphere and food. Service is the added extra.
Thanks

Excellent service. The management was happy to move us to a new table when the table at which we were first seated proved to be too small. The food was consistently excellent, as usual.

An enjoyable dinner at a favorite restaurant of ours but we cannot give it a 5* rating for one reason. I ordered a cocktail that I always order at restaurants which uses Woodford. The restaurant charged me $27 because they claim that Woodford is a premium bourbon. What?? The same drink at other restaurants is uniformly around $15. My wife’s Kettle One martini was $14. A major ripoff but I learned a valuable lesson. Disappointing.

This is hands down one of our favorite restaurants in DC. We have been coming here for almost 20 years and the food is phenomenal, the service is always, always outstanding and it is a beautiful space. They recently renovated the interior and it looks fresh and modern. When we moved from DC back to Atlanta, my parents were upset because they wouldn't be able to come to The Bombay Club for dinner on their visits.

We had an outdoor reservation for a night in November. The outside area was beautiful, with heaters and a plastic awning/walls but still had a door open for good ventilation. Our waiter was so nice and made delicious suggestions. The food and ambiance was outstanding.

I did look inside when we checked in and there was a piano playing and seemed a bit loud and formal. Our outside seat was the best and I much preferred it to the inside.

We are new to DC and this restaurant was a recommended to try as we are discovering our new city. Going out to dinner and trying new places is entertaining to us and Bombay Club was exceptional. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. Our waiter Hicham gave us the right amount of attention and had us covered. We will be back!!

Food is as fantastic as it always was. Updated decor has lost some of the history/gravity it used to possess, but is still nice. The piano remains and provides a nice ambiance. They were busy and perhaps the wait staff was slightly overtaxed, but still competent and thoughtful.
