We had an outstanding brunch. Strongly recommend the kale salad with steak. The steak was perfectly cooked, much better than most any other restaurant we ever visit. Also loved the elk sausage frittata and the banana bread. Friendly service. Not noisy, so we could have a pleasant conversation.
We'll be coming back for dinner, soon.
This restaurant is by far the best I have ever had. They have 2 separate menus, one totally vegan and the other not. Very delicious food !! Staff is super professional and friendly.
Great service and food
We were looking for a restaurant with vegan options and found Cedar! We were so happy to see that half of the menu is vegan ~ there were delicious salads, we had the caesar, entrees and desserts. For our entrees, we had the tofu with vegetables (good but the tofu could have been pressed more), the spinach risotto with tempeh (delicious!) and the meatloaf. For dessert, we shared two tarts that were really tasty. We look forward to trying their vegan brunch menu sometime in the future. Thanks for a great evening for us!
We enjoyed a wonderful pre-theater dinner at Cedar on Saturday evening. The personable staff was familiar with the menu, and helpful in directing us to some delicious choices. I enjoyed the quinoa veg soup, and flounder entrée. My husband noted his beef was perfectly prepared. Worth mentioning is the graceful way a cocktail order mix up was handled. My husband chose a glass of wine instead, but at the end of the meal , the host came over with a specially prepared cocktail and apology for us. We appreciated the gesture and the professionalism with which it was managed. We'll be back to try more of this interested and delicious menu!
We enjoyed our meal with good food and fantastic service. The location to the portrait gallery made it an exceptional choice for us.
Food was excellent and service was good. It is a small place so it was hard to talk due to the noise level when we first arrived. Later, it was better. I think there were lots of noise coming from the bar, earlier on. I will return because food was great and not so expensive.
Pre theater 35 dollar 3 course meal
It was my first time there and had an amazing dinner experience with the manager and Lauren our server. We will definitely be back for the vegan food and service!!
Enjoyable meal and excellent service. The entrance on street level leads to a flight of stairs down to the basement. We will definitely return to this restaurant. The menu was varied and different enough to have basics and a more adventurous offering - wild boar chops - which were excellent.
The drinks were very well mixed and the bar staff knew what they were doing. The Service was excellent.
Great meal prep theatre. Have an amazing pre theatre 3 course menu for $35! Such a great idea!!!
Sorry, it didn't go well. We love to dine DC, first time experimenting at Cedar, fell prey to Zagats. Left as soon as we finished a ho hum dinner. No plans to return.
Very good food, central location.
Nice quite atmosphere, good service, and creative updates of traditional dishes. Good location in Penn Quarter and good for pre-theatre.
Food and service were fantastic. Everything was delicious. I had the beet salad and my husband had the Caesar. The Wild Boar chops were amazing, cooked perfectly and tasty. Best of all, after we left, the restaurant found our friend's credit card and called to let us know right away.
Very pleasant food, service, and perfect location for pre-theater meal at Ford's Theater. A little pricey but worth it. An excellent selection of moderately priced wine by the glass!
The soup was delicious. The banana french toast was not very good. It was banana bread with a little crunch. Very dense and to add syrup made it way too sweet. The potatoes were great as was the french pressed coffee.
I think the food was average, the portion was so small and the price was high
The food was very good, particularly the cauliflower/kale soup and the halibut. The service was excellent.
Proximity of main dining to the bar was VEry close making an otherwise pleasant scene loud and boisterous to the point I almost asked people at the bar to be quiet. Food was alright.
A surprising menu featuring both vegan and a few wild game dishes (such as elk or duck sausage, and pulled pheasant sandwich.) The duck sausage was delicious. Good French press coffee and an interesting selection of champagne-based drinks - perfect for brunch.
Great food, great service! Went as a bachelorette party and the entire staff was lovey and accommodating, plus the food and drinks were excellent!
Wonderful evening. Restaurant went above and beyond to acknowledge a birthday celebration!
Everything about Cedar was great. The vegan steak and cheese was divine. It is nice to have multiple options for vegans and non vegans.
Excellent service from Kacey. Great place for a quiet lunch. Wonderful menu with great variety.
Had a quick business lunch- food and service were very good. We were the only ones in the restaurant though which was a little strange...
Great vegan as well as non vegan. Great team Will be back
The restaurant was wonderful! So many absolutely delicious vegetarians and vegan options, I was blown away. Also, there was some miscommunication while ordering (there were two tagliatelle dishes), but once we told them we meant the other they immediately made the other dish for us, gave us the lower price of the first dish and then also gave us a free drink. To top it all off, we were celebrating our anniversary and they gave all four of us free champagne! The service was phenomenal and the meals were incredible!!
Hidden fees. I was charged extra on steak in brunch. I didn’t catch it until I already paid. Mediocre food as well.
Nice little restaurant tucked away on E Street next to the FBI buildikng Cozy downstairs dining and good sized bar. The service was perfect -- the chef made us rack of lamb for lunch even though it wasn't on the restaurant week menu! And it was delicious. I definitely recommend this place.
Had an amazing night. Great food. Very thoughtful and knowledgeable staff. Elegantly styled decor. Quiet space. Perfect evening.
Nothing to write home about.
Our meal was INCREDIBLE. The food was fantastic (and unique!), the drinks were good, and the service was amazing. I spilled on my dress and the host got me a Tide pen, that’s how good the service is. I’m amazed. I came here for restaurant week and I’m definitely coming back. Thank you.
Cedar was generally ok. Nothing was particularly good or particularly bad when we went for lunch.
The smoked salmon eggs Benedict is to die for! Great service!
We have gone to Cedar for family milestones. Our experience have always been exceptional.
Our experience at Cedar was superb! This was our 1st trip back for quite sometime and were received with open arms (and our favorite bottle of wine) by the owner and his entire staff. We had the 3-course Restaurant Week lunch offering - absolutely delicious!
Great food, drinks and an awesome staff.
We went for Restaurant Week. The food was delicious, and the wine accompaniment was fantastic as well. Our waitress Lauren was so pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Will definitely be back!
Had a great experience, food was good, service was excellent!! Will definitely go back..
