I have been wanting to check this place out for a while as it's near my office, so a friend and I went there after work on a Tuesday. The service was very good. We had two pizzas and split the soft pretzel appetizer, which was very good. The waiter was attentive our drinks were never empty. I did think the food was a bit overpriced. There were several events going on there, a law firm one and a painting event, so the noise level was high, but surprisingly not as high as one would expect, you could still carry on a conversation without any issues. The only isusue for me was that this was a very warm day and they had the windows open, but they needed AC due to the temps being in the mid 70s and the large crowd. We would have stayed longer but it was so warm it was making us feel a bit ill. Definately would go back though.

Food was good, loved the corn dip and the brussel sprouts!!! Server was a bit on the slow side as we were on lunch break from works so it added extra time but it wouldn't prevent me from going back.

I was there for New Year’s Day brunch; Itwas awful. The waiter was completely overwhelmed. They ran out of champagne for mimosas, and the “poached” eggs on my Benedict were on the verge of being completely hard-boiled. The banana on my French toast was supposed to be brûlée, but it actually was just burnt. To top it all off, the awful waiter was so flustered that he (accidentally, I hope) switched my debit card with another customer in the restaurant. I had to cancel my debit card because by the time we figured it all out, the customer was already gone and we couldn’t find them. Nothing about my experience there rose to the level of even adequate. I’m very disappointed.

Slow strange service. Place wasn’t busy but staff stretched thin. Catfish way over cooked. Beer could have been colder. Didn’t leave beer menu which at a place with so many beers is a must. Pizza was light on cheese and the crab cakes were good but come with more fried green tomatoes than crab cakes. Should be called fried green tomatoes with crab cakes. Probably won’t return, so many better options nearby.

Had to request a waiter twice before someone arrived 10 minutes later. Although apologetic the mediocre service continued with additional bread request for an appetizer unfulfilled. Our server was handling a table of 14+ so our party of 5 was an afterthought. Baked brie and pizza were delicious and main meals tasty. Beer selection was amazing! Upbeat downtown vibe with live music later in the evening.

City Tap is one of my favorite places in DC for brunch. The food is always very delicious and the portions are quite large for brunch entrees. The Big Chick, Chicken & Waffles and Croque Senorita are amazing as are the pizzas. The service can be hit and miss, but the bottomless Mimosas and build your Bloody Mary bar make up for it.

The food is top notch and our service was exceptional. When we were seated a a small table, our server, Sheila, went out of her way and moved us to one that was more comfortable. She was attentive and even though it was her first week, found out everything so we could order appropriately. We were from out of town and glad we chose this restaurant.

The steak was perfect with fries and the simple salad is enough to share.

Should be noted this is a sports bar, we went on a weekend when a college football game was on. We were seated right next to the bar and could barely hear each other. No ones fault but take into consideration not going for an intimate evening or request to be seated farther back in the restaurant. We were seated and at the table for 15 minutes and no one acknowledged us or even brought us water. The restaurant area was not full and there appeared to be a lot of staff running around but we were ignored. We considered flagging someone down but since it was so loud we decided to just leave. No one noticed us leaving so we didn’t tell the hostess. Can’t comment on the food since we didn’t stay long enough to find out.

The atmosphere is refined with a killer location in Dupont. Our table ordered off the brunch menu and lobster specials. The lobster was tough, the potatoes were not cooked well enough and the corn was over cooked. The brunch offerings were great, except the bacon was not consistently cooked between the 3 different meals, some soft, some crispy.

The server was unresponsive and rude, she was unable to remember the specials for the day, she was not willing or able to refill drinks regularly and she made belittling jokes about any questions our party had about the menu. The manager did a very good job recognizing our table was not being taken care of and assisted with making sure we concluded our brunch and was cashed out properly. The manager cashed us out after we waited for our server to return for about 10 minutes. The server then returned to take our bill which had already been settled more than 10 minutes prior. This all would have been manageable for a diner, but definitely not what we expected for spending a couple hundred between a table of 5.

The service was amazing and managers were able to accommodate requests very kindly. Some of the food items were AMAZING like the seared tuna appetizer and the giant pretzel appetizer, but a lot of the entrees (during brunch) were REALLY disappointing like the pizza!!!! It was called "margharita pizza" but looked like a mini little ceaser's pizza and was chewy and just gross- I heard the table next to us who ordered that too complain about it as well (I recommend removing all pizzas from the menu) and I got the crabcake benedict- nowhere on the menu did it mention peppers or celery which I was really not expecting and don't like. Also, wasn't english muffin, was a huge piece of toast that got soggy from the toppings.

I had such high hopes for this place. Online, it said you could get unlimited bellinis.... something that, once there, the waitress said was impossible.

Food was decent, but the service was atrocious. Our server didn't understand ordering an appetizer and coming back for the rest of the order, and we waited for her to come back around for about 40 minutes. At one point, she made eye contact but kept on walking away!

The drinks were the best part of the experience. The strawberry basil lemonade was wonderful.

While the food was good, the service was terrible. The waitress mainly ignored us - looked over our heads when speaking to us and spilled our drinks all over the table when she practically threw them down on the table (which she also ignored- even though I said something and subsequently walked over to the bar to get napkins to clean up the mess she made). The only other time we saw her was when she handed us the bill. She then left my credit card somewhere (“oh, it’s over there”) when she brought back the payment slip.
