We came in with such a large party that no reasonable person could have expected to be able to be accommodated but the staff did an amazing job and got us all seated together. The food and drink was amazing but the service truly went above and beyond. Will be back to visit any time I’m in DC.

We were sat on time but the waitress did not arrive to take drink orders for 15 minutes. When she finally took our order, one of our guests ordered a bud light and she snapped back saying that they only take drink orders by number listed on the menu. The steak was decent but way too expensive. The noise level was insane. Felt like a sports bar rather than a sit down restaurant

Food was amazing! Drinks a little pricey for an average tasting beverage. Relatively slow service for what seemed like a slow night.

Seated quickly, waited almost 15 min for a server to greet us, finally went and asked the hostess to please assign a server to our table. They apologized but did not look shocked.

Was finally greeted quietly by a server who showed no remorse. After stating I had an allergy I was served a beverage I am allergic to.

We ordered the second we were greeted in fear we would not see her again. Received drinks 30 seconds before mediocre meal was served. Food was just OK.

Very disappointing. Go there for a drink only, but make sure you watch them pour it...

My last brunch visit was pretty disappointing in comparison to previous visits. The food quality was mediocre at best and condiments at the DIY Bloody Mary Bar were empty and never refilled. I will give it one more try in hopes that they were having an off day but I will refrain from recommending City Tap to others until I know the quality has improved.

I have been here a number of times and the food is pretty good. Usually the servers are very engaging and pretty much on top of the follow-up with checking-in at the table for drink refills, to see if everything was ok. My reservation was at Noon so before the total lunch rush. I received my drink as I was there first, had to flag server down when my lunch date got there for her drink. Our mistake was not giving the order right then because she disappeared and we had to keep turning out necks looking around to flag her down again. Our food took a bit long for a burger and a salad. We had to hunt her down again for extra sauces....finally asked another server for them. Then the food runner for to-go's. Basically, the server took our order and NEVER came back. No drink refills, no, is everything ok with your food, do you need anything...nothing. It was the worst experience yet! I always feel like service takes too long here in general, especially for work lunchtime, but still I come. This visit did it for me. I don't plan to be back until something changes, maybe more servers need to be hired. Then the host didn't check me in properly and I got a missed reservation email from Open Table, which I rectified, but just added to the disappointing experience.

I had brunch there with my husband and two young adult sons. The service was spot on and very pleasant, the food was very good and everything came out just right. There is a good amount of space between tables so when you're there during a not crowded (drinking) time, it isn't very noisy and we were there when it was fairly full but not crowded. I think we had COUNTRY FRIED STEAK & EGGS (good and the steak was prepared as we ordered, which doesn't always happen), VEGGIE BURGER (tasty and not too mushy), SHRIMP & GRITS & EGGS was really good. I would highly recommend it for brunch. I don't know about other times because that is the only time I ate there.

We were in town looking for a quick comfortable place for lunch. We found the menu for City Tap house and were sold at "Short Rib Fried Rice". We arrived at around 3 and found they were still serving brunch. The fried rice wasn't on the brunch menu. Our waitress checked the kitchen for us and said the regular menu wouldn't be available until 4. We were disappointed but went ahead ordering some apps and drinks, thinking we'd order entrees at 4. We got the elote corn dip and the pig wings. AMAZING. The elote dip was sweet and savory and served with warm tortilla chips. The pig wings were something like giant pork lollipops with a sticky sweet and spicy glaze. We ordered seconds of both ad made that our lunch. The drinks were a little small but well balanced and refreshing. Everything was so good we came back that night for dinner. Looking forward to many more visits to try everything on the menu. The pizzas coming out from the kitchen looked fantastic.

We had a very unpleasant experience with the hostes who said our reservation had been given up and did not have a comparable alternative other than to ask us to sit at the bar at high tables near the door. Her mannersim and lack of trying to fix the issue that was completely not our fault ruined our experience.

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.

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.
