Great food, great service. We sat outside on a summery April evening, ordered the fish (x2), shrimp. and the vegetarian (x2) and meat samplers for a table of six and the proportions were perfect. Thanks!

Fantastic service! First time trying Ethiopian food and it was such a wonderful experience with absolutely delicious food. The server was very patient and helpful in explaining what she suggested we should try as I had no idea. One of my favorite dinners from my trip to DC!

Das had wonderful and delicious food although very pricey. They also had excellent service with great recommendations and friendly servers. My only feedback would be that their outside tables are very small which makes it difficult to fit all of the food on the table and everything is a little bit pricey compared to similar restaurants in DC.

The restaurant refused to honor my reservation from Open Table. I booked a table for the evening of Valentines Day. The person at the front desk said he did not have a reservation for me. Once I produced my confirmation text from Open Table, he just shrugged and pointed to the dining room and said, "We're booked." No apology ... nothing but a shrug. It was embarrassing to say the least because I had a date. Thankfully, the Taj of India restaurant down the street has a table available. Very, very disappointing experience.

Simply one of the best restaurants in DC. The food is fantastic. The service is off the charts and they have J. Lohr by the glass. Get the veggie combo and the fish!

Truly an amazing experience! From the food to the service it was truly unforgettable! You are warmly welcomed into Ethiopian Culture. The restaurant is intimate yet at the same time affords you the space to explore further explore Ethiopian culture for yourself. I will definitely be dropping in each time I find myself in GeorgeTown!

Realty loved the food. Wish tea came in a bigger size (like a carafe or pot) and can't wait to be able to eat indoors, both floors look very inviting!

Wonderful restaurant with great food and service. We ordered the chicken tibs (which were great but a little on the milder side) and the vegetable platter. Both were amazing and the vegetable platter was quickly devoured. We also tried honey wine for the first time and that was so delicious.

With COVID restrictions we were only able to eat outside and in 30 degree weather, that meant we were battling wind and eating in our full winter coats. I wish they could have made it a little more insulated, but they did have a patio heater. Will definitely come back in warmer weather to enjoy this great food!

We were finally able to return to Das after a long covid-induced absence. The occasion was my wife’s birthday and this is one of her favorite restaurants in the District. Few Ethiopian establishments deliver on the trifecta of food, friendly service and sophisticated ambiance as effectively as Das. We were thrilled to be back and cannot wait to return.

Excellent, small, elegant Ethiopian restaurant. The food (we tried the sampler) is very flavorful, full of different tastes served on top of the typical bread (sorry forgot the name). The service is very kind and courteous. I definitely recommend and will be back.

Not Authentic but more suitable for American crowd and appetite. Service was OK consideration Covid-19 situation but the food was not 100% Ethiopian as to the spices and the taste. I have had better but no complaints coz Im certain if the serve the "Real" authentic Ethiopian food, no one wud come and that's quite understandable.
