This was my third time to have Sunday Brunch at City Tap House in Dupont. The food is excellent and quite tasty. The Big Chick, burgers and pizza are amazing! The service on our first two visits was also very good. Sadly, on our third visit the service was quite disappointing as our server disappeared for over 30 minutes and we had to flag down another server a few times to assist us. Hopefully this was just a one time thing and will be better next time.

Decided to dine here for Sunday brunch after seeing a sign advertising a Drag Brunch. Always wanted to attend one, so thought would give it a try. Wow! So glad we decided to go. Made a reservation for Sunday morning and when we arrived, the host wanted to confirm that we knew it was a drag brunch. Thought that was funny. We were seated along the wall on the far left. That was my only regret, as when the performers came out, they spent most of their time on the right side of the restaurant. We had a blast, none-the-less. The performers were great! Beautiful and talented (I wish we had taken photos, but weren't sure it was allowed) The food was excellent. I had chicken and waffles (yum!) my friend had the vegan burger (also yum). Even my lemonade was delicious! Large portions, nicely seasoned and wonderful presentation. Well worth the money. Very friendly and upbeat waitstaff.

I would definitely go here again for regular dining. Highly recommended. Restaurants in that space haven't had a lot of longevity. I hope this one stays.

Tough night. It was 90 degrees outside and the AC was not working properly. Our server - her first night working there- was overwhelmed by our party of 12. After some requests, they did send someone over to help, but it was more efficient for us to just go to the bar and get our own drinks. Food was good, though it took a while to get. Not sure I’d return.

Our waitress, Sarah, was extremely rude and inattentive. She clearly was not interested in serving our table. She chatted with other tables, but not ours. She took our orders and didn’t even take our menus with her. When my friend’s food took forever to come out, only to be cold, Sarah was unwilling to offer her any accommodation. The manager on duty was also rude and unhelpful. I am very disappointed as my first experience there was so pleasant. This time, it was such a let down.

Food was off the charts good. Service was great. Drinks were very well done. Downside was the seating. As a party of two, I prefer not to be squeezed into a small table when space allows. Given we made a reservation and were not a walk in, I was taken aback when we asked for a different table.

Please do not let the seating detour you from the wonderful fare. We will be back.

We came here for Mother’s Day and it was great. My sister took advantage of the bottomless Bloody Mary bar which had a good variety of tomato juices. My mom and I shared the mimosa flight (not sure if this is offered all the time or just on occasion) and it came with a tasty selection of juices. The real star was the dish of brussel sprouts, everyone at the table lovedddd them. Best I’ve ever eaten!

We had a business lunch for 18 people. Harry, the Manager, was very friendly, flexible and accomodating. They gave us a semi private area. Service and food was very good and it has a nice atmosphere. I love the Grapefruit and Avocado salad with added shrimp for a light lunch. It is a very comfortable place to sit at the bar and have lunch if you are solo. Also a great happy hour spot!

Server didn’t know beer list, couldn’t tell me which was which when he dropped off the samples. Brought out the wrong beer 3x. And the food I ordered steak and fries was just a giant slab of fat! No apologizes no manager visit. Just acted like it was another day! Place is too overpriced for poor service like that!

We had four for Easter brunch. The service was quite slow even though the restaurant wasn't very busy when we first arrived. My quiche was dried out and tasteless, but the accompanying salad was good and the breakfast potatoes were fine. I believe the others in my party were satisfied with their meals, though one other friend didn't get exactly what was ordered. I was disappointed but will try them again.

I made a reservation a week before we went and asked for a table near a TV since we were going for the final 4. We showed up to a fairly empty restaurant but was told there wasn't any table facing a TV. Long story short they ended up being able to accommodate us and re-angled our table for an even better view.
We ordered a bottle of wine for the table which they originally thought they were out of but the manager was able to track it down in their stock (we appreciated his extra efforts).
We were given tons of time before we ordered as our waiter knew we were there for the games. We appreciated his patience

Low key night with family, party of 5. Great food, pleasant enough server but slow follow-up after order was taken. Appetizer dishes sat piled up in middle of table until 3/4 of main meal was eaten, while server and runner dropped more food and took another drink order.
Wait staff seemed like they would rather be somewhere else on Friday night.
Kicker was 20% tip request was written out on our bill.

Although we had a reservation in advance, the host was unclear and confused about seating us (seating availability was plentiful) it was a very awkward first time experience. Once the host figured that out, the wait staff person who brought water to the table was not friendly at all. Even after we greeted him , he never said hello or welcome, not a single word or acknowledged the table. He was more interested in watching what was happening through the glass windows than greeting his table while spilling water on the table and missing the glasses. No apologies or acknowledgments. The beer and food were both good . No complaints there. But the hospitality was definitely lacking upon arrival.

Perfect easy affordable cozy gastro pub dinner experience for a family of out of towners on a snowy night. Great pizza, with unusually flavorful crust. The salads are full entree size. The cookie desert is fantastic - sweet, decadent, plenty big to share. But avoid the key lime pie desert - it's presented like creme brûlée except with toasted marshmallow on top. The proportions are all wrong - not enough crust and way too much marshmallow (actually, none would be just right).

First time here, and liked the setting and menu. We arrived at 6:30 and the restaurant was nearly empty, so service was fine. As the restaurant filled, though, our server all but disappeared. Was nearly impossible to order a glass of wine to go with my entree. Never asked if we wanted dessert. Getting and paying check took forever (and they put one of the cocktails on the wrong check). Lots of potential here, but not with that kind of service.
