The food and service was very good EXCEPT that they added nearly $100 in food and drink that we did not order. One cheese plate showed up on the bill as two and a glass of wine became a bottle. We were very disappointed overall because of the incorrect charges that did not seem to be genuine mistakes. I doubt we will go back.
according to the manager cafe dupont closes at 11am on weekdays. why they then accept lunch reservations is beyond me. we were sat in the bar area, but this is not conducive for a lunch meeting. service was terrible. food was so-so at best.
Both of our entrees were terrible. My superfood salad was watery and tasteless. His salmon with eggs was also tasteless. Our server was lovely, but we won’t be back.
Nice quiet spot (during the morning/early afternoon hours) and great view of DuPont. Service was great, food/beverages were tasty, no complaints, would go again!
Had a great brunch here. Good coffee, great pancakes!
Very nice! Food was good and service good.
The staff is always very professional and helpful- at breakfast, lunch or dinner and the food is always very good.
Service was not as good as usual. The meal was served before the cocktails arrived and an appetizer was never delivered. Could have just been an off day as it was a holiday, so we will be back.
Filet was one of the best I've had over past 10 years. Much better than Charlie Palmer steakhouse in NYC (bottom 5). Made top 5 list for me on Filets. Nice setting at night and large windows showing Dupont Circle. Great experience. Servers were very professional.
Awesome service !
went after a show at Keegan Theater. great experience.
Hotel restaurant but a neighborhood and personal favorite for a number of years because of the location, food, and architectural design of glass walls that allow one to enjoy the Dupont Circle location year round.
Lovely wait staff and bartender.
We were happy to connect with friends for my birthday dinner. The restaurant looked festive. The crab on toast appetizer with carmellized onions on the side was delicious. The rabbit stew with mushrooms was tasty but the dumplings did not add much and seemed heavy.
Nice quiet place to meet up with your adult children. Good variety of brunch food, including smoothies, in a clean, elegant setting. Warm service.
Jackson, our server was very personable and professional. Bar area help was full of bright and helpful souls
We had a great Thanksgiving dinner at Café Dupont. The food was great, and the staff was very attentive without being too intrusive. A great experience overall.
Excellent food and service, we will definitely come back!
My adult nephew was visiting from New York and I wanted to take him to a nice but comfortable restaurant in DuPont Circle. Cafe fit the need. We had eggs Benedict with smoked salmon- outstanding. Service was great as well.
The service and food were wonderful. The atmosphere was comfortable and inviting.
Host (maitre d?) greeted us with a very rude "we don't have any availability". Ok, that's great for your business, but I made a reservation. He made me say my name 3x, pull up the confirmation on my phone, and then consulted his system. And the hostess who was standing next to him the whole time was sympathetic to us.
They found the reservation but said it would be 5 minutes before a table opened up. In the meantime, we saw 2 tables open outside and another 4-6 inside. Which we had no problem pointing out. Eventually he said - let me get the [furthest table away] set for you. Ok great.
We sat and after 10 minutes had to go get someone to wait on us. The poor server looked stressed; he said it was going to be quite a wait b/c they had a couple of large tables. I'm sorry, but you're attached to a hotel/apartment building. If you can't have orders for ~20 dishes around the same time, you've got a failing system. We pleaded with the server and immediately gave him our simple (all eggs) order and asked to get ahead of the large parties.
From there on out things were fine. The food was good and delivered hot. The service was fine. Not enough to make up for the initial issues though.
