Great food and friendly local spot. We were staying at a nearby hotel and happened upon it. Happy that we did!

The food is predictable and pedestrian. The service was horrendous. There were very few customers. We were seated upstairs and the waitress did have to keep running up and down to serve us. She made no extra attempts to see if we needed anything and when we were finished and waiting for the check I looked down to see her seated and eating. I had to call out to get the check.

This is a neighborhood gem! It is a place that serves great food, has wonderful and friendly staff and is in the heart of a great neighborhood. It is locally owned! You can come in and sit at the bar and have a small bite and a drink and watch a game or you can sit on the patio and enjoy the neighborhood around your or you can have a more cozy and intimate space upstairs for a special date or occasion. I am consistently happy with the food and service. We need to keep restaurants like this busy and in business!!

You must try this place out. You will make it a home!

Made a reservation, restaurant was not open despite taking Open Table’s reservation and business listings on Google and Yelp saying they were open. Showed up to the restaurant to find it dark and empty, Restaurant didn’t answer calls.

Their prefix menu for $30 includes soup or salad, any entree on the menu, a glass of wine, and dessert. A great deal and delicious food. The staff is super friendly.

I was not that impressed. My salmon was a bit charred and so was my friend's hangar steak. The bathroom was messy and the faucet was leaking. They really needed to get in there and clean it up, and also call a plumber to address the leak. Overall, it didn't seem that clean and was a bit noisy. I think they could've made a better effort at making this a more special experience and up their game with the food prep and presentation. It was okay or passable but I wouldn't go there again. I don't want to be mean but I was disappointed.

We live in the neighborhood and when feeling lazy but wanting a well-prepared, pleasantly served, healthy, flavor-filled meal in a pleasant setting, at a reasonable price, Brick Lane is just the place. We're never disappointed, whether its the mussels, the risotto, salmon sandwich, or just a salad.

The meal was one of the worst meals I've had in my 4+ years in Washington DC. I ordered the steak salad and the steak came out super rare after ordering it medium. They took the salad back and cooked the steak further, but once it came back, it tasted like chewy nothingness. My friend ordered a sandwich and fries, and the fries had hair on them.
I will never be going back to this place.

I have to give the least amount of stars available. Very disappointed that my son and I walked over for breakfast during a weekday and they were not open - although their website and open table said they would be:(

This is the most adorable restaurant on 17th Street! Our waitress Taylor was so sweet, really attentive, and funny. The food was wonderful. They had a great selection of mussels and we ended up getting mussels white, which were amazing. They were perfectly cooked, not too garlicky, had a lot of broth, and came with a ton of toast for dipping. His steak was awesome. The Malbec we drank was reasonably priced and great! The atmosphere is so cute and we can't wait to come back when we can sit outside on the sidewalk. We will be regulars here for sure.

Very nice atmosphere, great service, delicious food. I went there a Friday night for dinner, the bartender and the manager were very friendly and attentive. I recommend the hanger steak which was very tasty. The chef really knows how to cook a great steak ! I highly recommend it, it was an excellent dining experience.

The veggie burger was honestly one of the best I’ve ever had and my friend loved her Atlantic salmon entree. Very diverse, delicious menu with something for everyone. The atmosphere was super cozy and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. 100% recommend!

I frequent BL often. It's a wonderful neighbor bar/restaurant with an atmosphere that reminds one of "Cheers". Bartenders and servers are always very friendly and competent. The owner is often there, too, which ensures high food quality and great service.

Omar took great care of us. We were celebrating a birthday and they made it special. Great food, great value, but it’s the people who make a restaurant’s reputation. The owner came by to check on us. Wonderful service. Comped drinks. We’ll be back.

Saturday night dinner with friends for a party of 5. Two din ers ordered the hangar steak with mashed potatoes and spinach. Both the potatoes and spinach were cold. Wait staff shared that the beef dinners were prepared first while the salmon scallops didn't take as much time. Wait staff did offer a complimentary shot.

As always, the food is terrific. Great value and excellent service. A very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Like the back table upstairs section for quiet conversation. It's a gift to have this place in the neighborhood.

The service was horrible. Our waiter didn’t seem very interested in waiting on us. He actually went to the table next to us 4 different times before even checking on us. The food was decent but nothing spectacular, and definitely not worth the abysmal service. Bartender seemed welcoming when we first entered. Atmosphere was nice.

Food was decent but service was terrible. We were seated upstairs and our waiter neglected to come and check on us. When he actually did come by he smelled like a cloud of smoke. The restaurant was fairly empty except for a few locals. Weird vibe in general. Would not recommend.

Patrick was an absolutely amazing server. He was so friendly and helpful. He made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. I had the coconut shrimp salad which was delicious and we started with the hummus and the spinach and artichoke dip, really yummy. Everyone was happy with their meals and the casual atmosphere, but the service was the best. Definitely going back again and asking for Patrick.

We had a party of 8 and everyone loved the food. We had salmon, scallops, lamb shank...all were great! Someone ordered a watermelon salad to die for. When the staff found out we were celebrating my husbands birthday and my sons wedding this weekend they brought us complimentary desserts and a lovely bottle of champagne! I highly recommend this restaurant...we come to D.C. often and will definitely eat here again!
