Dad Ethiopian has THE best Ethiopian food in the DC area. We would highly recommend the veggie combo and the special tibs together. Excellent food and excellent service.

Initially chose this place due to the outdoor seating option, but on the day of the reservation, it rained. However, the restaurant was prepared and the tables were spaced out (I didn't measure between each table, but I assume they were 6 feet apart).

Prior to entering the dining room, the hostess took our temps and asked for contact information for contact tracing purposes. We then received a squirt of hand sanitizer.

Food - very, very good. Ambiance allowed us to have a conversation. The staff were nice, wore masks, and very attentive.

From the moment we sat down the service was outstanding. Our server (apologies forgot the name) was amazing and happily handled every request. We had a sample of almost everything, my son having worked in Africa for many years, said the food and spices were spot on! We talked about the dining experience for the next couple days!

Wonderful food served by native Ethiopians that are justifiably proud of their food traditions.

Immaculate. Some of the best food I’ve ever had. The flavors were rich and potent yet well balanced. Hands down the best Ethiopian I’ve had the honor to taste. I wish I lived in Georgetown, I’d order or pick up every week.

I have been going to this restaurant perhaps once a year for about a decade. I have never been disappointed with the food, service, or atmosphere. It is one of those restaurants I love to share with out-of-town work colleagues.

I was so happy to try this place with my kids on the way to NC. The food was excellent. We eat Ethiopian food a lot so you can get equivalent food in DC for less money, but you can’t beat the people watching from the prime location. I wish DAS was a bit more authentic in its decor, but overall it was a great experience.

We were lucky enough to find Das and have lunch this past Saturday. We were an early seating.

The restaurant is wonderfully appointed with a beautiful and immaculately clean interior.

The service was excellent (we were given a temperature check at the door and our contact information was taken for contact tracing of covid if needed). The service was kind and professional and made great recommendations.

We ate the sambusas which were delicious, the appetizer cheese, the meat sampler dish and beef tartare. All was excellent. I put a lot of spice in the tartare and I mentioned this to the server who offered the chef to remake it to make it more mild. It was not necessary but it was a kind offer!

Would highly recommend giving this establishment a try. Everything was excellent and I would most certainly return.

The Kitfo (an Ethiopian spicy Steak Tar Tar) was fantastic with home-made cheese! The fish and ribs were great though the chicken dish was tasty, the leg was a little dry. Otherwise, everything was good, fresh Injera and even Tej from Ethopia itself and not from the US as you find in other restaurants. Beautiful restaurant in the Easternmost part of Georgetown so it is convenient to the Foggy Bottom Metro station.

Convenient location in Georgetown. We were staying at Four Seasons and it’s across the street from the hotel. We love trying new foods and enjoyed it. My only negative was it’s a little to spicy for me. Great atmosphere and service

Food was excellent. I had the vegetarian sampler and my friend had a beef dish. Service was excellent. Dining room is small so it was a bit noisy when all tables were full. Prices were also very good. Highly recommend.

I went to this restaurant during a quick trip to DC. I made a reservation but the hostess couldn’t find it, however she graciously got a table ready for us with little wait time. Our server was so warm and welcoming and even the owner came to us and asked how we were doing. The food was delicious and sooo filling. It was a great experience and I will definitely be back again!

I saw DAS featured on the PBS program, "No Passport Required". As promoted, the Ethiopian cuisine, service and atmosphere were excellent. The guest I brought, in celebration of her birthday, is from Ethiopia; she loved the experience. We had a great time and look forward to coming back soon.

Lovely evening, as always. Quiet ambiance - a charming dining room that looks out on the streets of Georgetown, and very friendly, but not intrusive service. Lamb is a nice new addition to the menu and the vegetarian sampler is always a good choice. One of our favorite restaurants in Washington - very consistently excellent.

We had a reservation for 9:30 pm. At 9:20 I called and let them know I would be 10 minutes late. I was then told that their kitchen closes at 10:00 and that I should order to go. We actually arrived on time and the waitress were clearly not happy to see us there. She guided us to order way too much food for our party, I guess to make worth having us there. Then, immediately after the food was served, they started very noisily organizing and cleaning the other tables. We were still eating and al the employers were ready to leave, with their coats and purses on, looking at us. It was not a pleasured experience.
The food was ok, but not fresh.
