The experience was amazing live jazz and perfect lighting. Our waitress Madison was very attentive and polite. The Drunken Ribeye in one word Superb. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a date or just a girls night out.

This dinner was suppose to be a celebration for my wife's 38th birthday and we drove down from Baltimore. The look of Claudia's is quite beautiful... I just wished the service matched. During our 2 hour dinner not once was it acknowledged that today was my wife's birthday though I requested it during the reservation. Our table was in a primo location allowing us to enjoy the nights musical performance. Once our waiter / the bartender took our drink orders we didnt see him for about 10-15 minutes. My wife and I also noticed that we had no silverware which took a few more minutes to get. Our appetizer was the Crab Croquettes and they were delicious... they had a little kick of heat to them. For our entrees I got the Negra Modelo Drunken Rib-eye with the honey bacon brussel sprouts and my wife got the scallops. The taste of everything were quite delicious though I asked for chimichurri and never received it. I asked for the carrot cake for dessert to go. When we got home I dont know what they gave us but it was not carrot cake. All in all I believe a 3 out of 5 stars will be the best rating I give only because the food was good and the live music was amazing. The service on the other hand was subpar especially for the price you are paying.

Too energetic for me. Steak and seafood off the grill some of the best. Salad awful.

Nice really white and pretty restaurant. Went to celebrate my husband's big 50th birthday on Sunday at 7:45pm. I mentioned that in the notes when I made the reservations. Arrived at the restaurant. No acknowledgement, no special....anything. Extremely disappointed in the service and the food. Ordered carne asada. Dry, chewy and did I say dry? The salad was very good. Very disappointed that our occassion was not even acknowledged!

this establishment is excellent across the board... atmosphere, food, customer service - the only negative has nothing to do with the restaurant - DC parking is deplorable!!!

I find it to be super great for happy hour. However, It’s too loud for an intimate dinner. Food and service was outstanding.

Beautiful atmosphere. Waiter was very friendly and engaging. Crab soup sample did its job - we both ordered. Beet and wedge salads very nice! Strip steak did not measure up- THIN and a bit gristly. Scallops were very good. Waited WAY too long for ordered cocktails. Dirty plates sat on our table longer than even at a lesser restaurant. I would come back however with cautious optimism.

They were short staffed when we dined but management was amazing about it and our server was great even though he was on the only one on the floor. I can't say enough about how hard the staff worked to serve the guests! And the food was excellent!

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.
