The food was outstanding! From the plantation chips to the scallops and salmon to the Brussels sprouts. My girlfriend loved the Brussels sprouts!

Very good. I had the NY strip was delish! The lobster avocado wasn’t good but only because they basically cooked the lobster to death. I think they put it in the oven and left it in there...not a good idea. But overall very good.

Upon entering it was just before 2 pm reservation. Stand up near the hostess area and no one acknowledged my presence. Had to grab someone at bar area to be seated. Food was great but customer service could have been better.

Obviously, we didn't know that dinner at 6:30 is right in the middle of "happy hour." The noise level was unbearable for me and we were moved to another table. Our server was very upbeat, not intrusive, but new. We decided his winning personality overrode how we felt about the restaurant. The food was okay; nothing stood out and I wouldn't go back as my personal choice. For the price value, I'd rather spend my $$ at Capitol Grille where the service and food is impeccable. It wasn't bad; just not stellar.

NO- we come here at least twice a year, this was an awful experience:
1) ran out of forks so we had to use a spoon? (weird)
2) ran out of vanilla ice cream so dessert lave cake was with a sorbet...
3) steak was chewy, awful. bisque tasted like something else.
very very rushed,
awful do not go

Good bar scene and happy hour. Nice prices. The special August 35 dollar menu was sparse. We ordered a la carte. Food was fine. Lobster bisque not great as little lobster taste. Scallops were excellent.

I was surprised. I walk by this place every day and it looks sadly empty. Tried it for a friend who couldn't walk far from my office. The room has always been beautiful. The service was perfect and my seafood salad and my friend's salmon salad were wonderful!! I will be back soon

Booked based upon recommendation of hotel conceige when we asked for steak recommendations near the hotel. Initial impressions we're great and the service was outstanding. Unfortunately it appeared one of the entertainment staff brought their young children with them and we were seated at the booth in front of them. These children very much wanted to watch their Mum even if it meant numerous attempts to climb over the booth to our table, play with our hair etc. They were very noisy competing with the live music. We finally asked to move to a different table. A mix-up in the kitchen resulted in an order that was to be cooked to med-well arrived rare and the rare steak arrived cooked to med-well. The wait staff worked quickly to correct. However when the steaks finally arrived with the cuts correctly cooked (and they did taste good) the sides we're cold. Probably a good place for families however adults wanting less patron-based noise should look elsewhere for a more adult-tempered ambiance during dinner.

The menu seems to say steakhouse with a slight Latin flair. The décor is modern and bright but not overdone. The service was excellent and the food is exceptionally good. I took a business colleague there on my first visit and was pleasantly rewarded -- she liked it. I'd recommend Claudia's both for business and maybe a romantic date in the evening. I found it bit on the expensive side but the value is there.

Service was excellent, as our waitress was energetic and sweet. The food was very good and portions sizes are large, the quality of cooking was spot on. The only negatives I would suggest are that the open kitchen allows a fair amount of smoke into the dining area, and the restaurant was quite warm.
I would certainly give it another try on a day when it was not 95 degrees out.

Our table was perfect. Tucked in below window so it was private but still part of restaurant/bar atmosphere. Like the menu. The steaks were prepared well. The mushrooms were delicious.

As a single diner, and a female, there is the tendency by some restaurants to place me away from a desirable location. My request to not be hidden in a corner where I can be ignored or jostled by wait staff as they hustle to take care of larger parties was pleasantly received and I was placed at a comfortable table.
My server, Quinn, and her team, were very attentive and accommodating. My meal was delicious and worth every wonderful calorie.
The Spicy Pineapple Margarita was a great addition to the meal as well.
I believe you will enjoy your visit as well.

Waiter brought one incorrect meal out of four. The rest of my party had finished eating before the correct meal made it out. Food was good, but the filets were ordered med rare and came out rare. Bisque was fantastic and sides were delicious.

I hosted a business lunch at Claudias last week. It was my first time there. I chose the restaurant based on the location and the menu online. We were not disappointed. The service is excellent and so was the food. The menu is amazing. The seafood is memorable. The buildout is really charming too.

Phenomenal. Exceeded my expectations. We were given samples of the lobster bisque and it was divine. We couldn’t chose a wine so our server brought samples. Completely delicious food. The scallops were perfectly cooked and we loved the grilled octopus. It was the best I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to come back!!

Had another great dinner with my husband celebrating a milestone. Service was good and food was awesome! We were there early (6pm) during happy hour and it was pretty noisy.

Highly recommend going going on the weekend and after 7pm during the week to avoid the noise.

The food was great. This was my second time at the restaurant and it didn’t disappoint me or my dad who I took there for Father’s Day. He really enjoyed himself he told a friend about the food and the atmosphere and he called my sister for the location and to see if they are open during the day for lunch. I guess you will see him again soon. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking my childhood sweetheart and her sister to dinner at Claudia's. We started at the swanky and comfortable bar with cocktails while the kind hostess kept an eye on the availability of our preferred table.
Once we moved to our table, we were quickly and warmly greeted by the waitress. While I cannot recall her name, she impressively remembered my husband and I from our visit in February. (awesome customer recognition)
I would recommend this place purely based off the vibe and customer service; however, the food is fabulous. To start, we shared the octopus, large cheese board, and the empanadas. The octopus was portioned much larger than many other DC steakhouses, Thank you Claudia! I love octopus and was very pleased with the taste and texture. The four of us shared three entres, 32oz prime rib, scallops, and the red snapper. The prime rib was tender, but something I wouldn't order again. The scallops were like biting into a melting butter stick... Absolutely perfectly cooked and delicious. The snapper. The snapper. The snapper. Beautifully presented... Fried whole, we destroyed it... We loved it. We're already discussing when we're coming back for the snapper. Thanks for a great dinner, Team Claudia.
