Upon entering the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and ambiance. Checking in was quick and the hostess showed us to our table. Our server Jeremiah was well spoken and very comfortable with the menu and answering our questions. During our dinner the manager greeted us and asked how we liked the food and if there was anything he could do to make our experience better. He was well spoken and dressed. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great experience with an amazing view of the water and a comfortable atmosphere.

As with most restaurants on The Wharf - beautiful views. Our server was upbeat and attentive. Unfortunately, as with many hotel connected restaurants, the food was overpriced and underwhelming - also a very limited and uninspiring by the glass wine selection. Also, be advised that parking (pre tip) is $55.00 at the wharf and is often full so be prepared to walk- not much street [metered] parking but it is a safe well lit area.

Wonderful big open room, with deck high above the Wharf. But: the sun shades were dysfunctional, and the midday autumn sun punishing. The salads were carelessly made and overdressed; the beef tacos, while well-designed, had strangely little beef. The wine list had four choices from mass producers. The restaurant feels like a tack-on to the offerings of a middling hotel trying to affect cool -- which, in fact, it is.

Service was on the slow side. Many wines were sold out. Coffee service was very slow. Food was good; portions huge (too huge, actually).

The restaurant was clean and had a nice ambience. The food was good and fresh and the prices are good . The staff was friendly and pleasant and most important they were wearing their face mask at all times and that’s a plus for me specially when they have to take your order and talk to the costumer I would really recommend this restaurant and also they have a nice view close to the marina

My wife and I ate there prior to an event at the Anthem. The creamy pesto pasta was tasty, but may have had a bit too much pesto. The "big mic" burger was done medium as requested; it was a bit messy with the special sauce. The service was prompt and did not hover. The windows overlook the Wharf which was nice as we had not spent much time in that area before. Overall, it was a good experience.

Canopy is a decent place. The food is delicious, prices aren't bad, but the service is lacking. Often takes a VERY long time to get your order in, get your server's attention, get the check even when trying to flag a server down.

Small restaurant located off the lobby of the Hilton. Limited menu but anybody should be able to find something they like. Cocktail was strong and the food was very flavorful and tasty. Good sized portions as well. I would return and try out their brunch next time.

Riley the server was awesome and saved the evening. The hostess however was on a power trip and wanted us to sit in the corner despite the rest of the tables not being filled for no good reason.

Overall a nice outdoor spot.

After being sat in the sun on a very warm day, we were forgotten. No service at all. No water, no we'll be right with you. Nothing. We waited over 20 minutes and got up and left. When we stopped to tell one of the waitresses why we were leaving, she remarked that if we would go back to our table she would try to see if she could find someone to take our order.

It took us an hour to get our food and out of seven of us, four of us had eggs that were not cooked properly. One avocado toast entrée was fabulous with lots of avocado and extra arugula, and the other two barely had any avocado spread at all and no arugula. I asked twice but the server kept forgetting my drink. This is my second time at the restaurant, and I can say I was very disappointed. The view are spectacular but overall I don’t think it was not worth the price.

Great restaurant located at the wharf in Washington DC which a perfect view over the area. We were welcomed close to 3 pm which is about the time when they don't take food orders anymore. They pointed out to us that we need to order before 3 pm and assisted to ensure we can place our order asap. We went with the Pepperoni Pizza and Pesto Pasta - we can recommend both of these entrees in combination with a nice Oktoberfest draft ;-)... The service was really great and you can enjoy the view over the wharf area.

Nice new restaurant with great views overlooking the Wharf. Went for Brunch and the Wings and the Big Poppa were great! Bottomless option is available and they keep the carafes flowing. Note the restaurant fully closes at 3 so nothing can be ordered after that time.

Beautiful views! Drinks were excellent, location perfect, limited food menu and service less than great. They have so much unrealized potential. The location and view are amazing but the drinks were expensive ($16 cocktails) and the menu is very limited. Service was very slow. Server was also the bartender and after waiting to get our check, we eventually walked out through the bar and dropped off cash for our drinks. Somewhat disappointed given the location and ambiance.

Let’s start with the good first, I enjoyed the ambiance of the Canopy! I also loved how there was a live saxophone player! The outdoor seating under the tent was gorgeous as well! The food definitely wasn’t the best for brunch. I ordered the French toast, bacon, and eggs. It wasn’t the worst nor the best. My friend ordered the mumbo wings and Thai chill wings with fries. The wings were pretty good! The service was not very good. We arrived at 1:45pm, it took 25 minutes for someone to finally come over to serve us. We didn’t get our food until 2:47pm, and still had to wait an additional 30 minutes after eating to receive the bill and pay.

Very Nice outdoor seating with a great view of the river. Service was good but slow as it is everywhere due to COVID staff shortages. Overall it was a good dining experience and would recommend anyone to try it out. It is inside the Canopy Hotel.
