Cold, mediocre food and slow service. No reason to go, pretty much.
We went for the Saturday drag brunch and had a blast!
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.
The drag brunch was amazing, the best in the city!! Fantastic atmosphere, the food will not disappoint, service is impeccable, and the Queens are Living their Best Life and are taking you along for the ride!!!
Very excited to check this out coming into town from South Florida- loved the urban coziness, food was ok, first waiter Riedls but disappeared after decided we wanted to take some time until we ordered the main food, second waiter very efficient and friendly; beer selection amazing- I would come again and recommend it
Great food. Customer service was great. Manager came over and turned the fireplace on for us. Nice night out.
Was catching up with friends and enjoyed a wonderful salad with a few beers and the football game! The waiter was very friendly and helped with drinks selection. Everyone in the restaurant was pleasant and it is very clean place.
We had a good time, looking forward to the next time
Beer selection is very good and the have craft cider. Food is basic pub menu. Limited options for those of us who require gluten free. Good location options.
Went with a friend this Saturday for the Drag brunch it was so much fun!
Celebrated friendsgiving here and it was absolutely lovely. The food was scrumptious and prepared to perfection.
My sister and I made a reservation for Thanksgiving dinner. The food was delicious, the inside of the restaurant is beautiful, and the service was very good.
Love love love the wings. Enjoy my birthday brunch
It ended up being a drag brunch which was INCREDIBLE and so much fun!! What an amazing surprise!
Our waiter was great! The service was great! The food was terrible. We had pulled pork nachos which came out cold. Would not recommend this place for food. Lots of beer to choose from for sure.
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.
It was fair. The pretzel was very good. Nothing bad but nothing special either.
Had a great time, very good bloody Mary’s.
Just happened across this place and it's great. We had appetizers and drinks at the bar, and then came back later for a meal. Really enjoyed both. Food is very good.
City tap has a great menu, but the quality isn't up to the price and the service was absurdly slow. If you aren't in a rush, it's fantastic.
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.
I met my girlfriends here for dinner and drinks. We ordered a bunch of different items for the table to share...everything was good but not memorable. My favorite was the honey and goat cheese pizza :)
Just ok. Could have been better
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.
My sorority sisters and I checked out the city tap restaurant! All I can say is AMAZING ! The lobster phenomenal! Key lime pie to die for . Bottomless mimosas BOMB ! Come check them out!
Appetizer was burnt, entree was cold. I felt very rushed, the waiter didn’t ask if we wanted a second beverage or dessert.
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.
Pizza was decent, ingredients seemed fresh. Wish they offered a bit more food variety but what they had was good. Super friendly bar staff, great local beer selection. I will
Definitely be back.
Many excellent beer selections. Service was excellent, food even better.
Had the wings and hamburger. Both outstanding.
Went to City Tap House for the summer Sunday drag brunch. I wasn't expecting much from the food, but it actually was quite good (even though my meal came out more warm than hot). Service was also outstanding, which I had not been anticipating based upon some reviews I had read previously. The drag show itself was fun and for free, an unbelievable deal for entertainment as you eat.
We were a group of 7 & tried almost everything on the menu together. Every item was delicious, service was excellent, and we love the vibe of the place. We had a great time here.
Great drag brunch!
Friendly well intentioned service.
Great beers on tap.
Food was all a bit flat.
Food was great. Bosco was the man. Service was fantastic
