    Food was excellent. Upscale ambiance. We were missing a vape pen from a coat pocket. Hostess quickly retrieved and gave it back when we returned to restaurant. No explanation as to why she had it in her purse. That’s the only reason for knocking stars off.

    My family and friends have been going to this restaurant since 2017, and not once has it ever been anything less than a stellar experience from beginning to end! The entire staff and the owner treat you like family. The food is flavorful and always cooked correctly. Their vegetarian platter is my niece's favorite...one of the few places she can go and eat to her heart's content. The location is perfect in the heart of Georgetown...it's just a fabulous experience all around, every single time. Every time we have family and friends who visit us from around the world, THIS is the place we take them! Go visit. I promise you will love it as much as we do!!

    Food was outstanding! We ordered combination plates, but I wish I'd just done the shiro (everthing else was also outstanding, but was in a shiro, comfort-food sort of mood). Staff was cheerful, helpful, and efficient. Was a pleasant, relaxing evening!

    Cocktail was just ok as it was watered down and too expensive. Ambience is nice but loud when full. Service was very friendly and fast. Some of the dishes were great, but two of the dishes we had, a mixed meat and mixed vegetable platter is too little food for too high a price.

    I have walked by the restaurant many times and thought I would like to try Ethiopian food. Well finally went yesterday and it was so delicious I wish I would have gone sooner. The chicken and beef dishes were great but I loved the vegetarian dishes too. As it was our first time we ordered both a meat and vegetarian sampler plate. Everything was awesome. Highly recommend!

    The idea of eating Ethiopian food and not sitting on the floor took some getting used to, but the house the restaurant is in is very nicely decorated with soft lighting and the noise level would ordinarily be fine save for the table of 4 women close to us who were extremely boisterous. The food was very tasty although a bit drier, as in not much sauce, and a bit blander on the non-spicy items. We had the beef and chicken sampler entree and also the lamb tibs and the lamb tibs in particular were stellar. The limoncello cake was outstanding. Service was quite good although two or three times we had to ask another waiter to send our waitress over. She did help us find a delicious sweet wine, but we wound up refilling our glasses more than she did. Overall, a very good experience and we will return and we very much recommend this restaurant.

    We had a fabulous time and truly enjoyed the food. At first, it was difficult to get our drink order taken, and throughout the evening, although there was plenty of very nice staff, it was tough to get their attention at times, but overall, once an order was placed, the food and drinks came out very quickly and was delicious!

    I think our issue with our dinner was the placement of our table. We were by the door that led to the outside seating area, and there was a lot of traffic using that door. Because of that, and the resultant draft, our food got too cold too quickly. Hot food needs to be hot, and it was too bad that it was my wife’s introduction to Ethiopian cuisine. It did not live up to how much I had talked it up prior to our trip to DC.

    This is my second time dining at DAS. If you’ve never had Ethiopian food before, this experience is elevated without the high price tag. With Ethiopian food, they always come around with injera bread as your utensil, and I never felt that I ran out. I always order a few samplers to share among my peers. They are more strict about reservations on busy nights, so definitely make one. I had a glass of Ethiopian wine with my meal, which was a bit sweet for me, but the flavor was great. This is one of my favorite places to take people in the DMV.
