We were seated upstairs which was a bit quieter than downstairs. Clientele was very upscale. Some wore jackets, some more casual, but felt very posh. Music was great and varied between jazz and electronic house. The host and service was excellent. If you've never had Ethiopian before, the culture is to share the meal with everyone at the table and eat with your hands. They give you the option I think for plates and flatware. The food was very tasty. Keep in mind there is a lot of bread (cold and thin and feels like a french crepe. Beef, fish, chicken choices were all very good. the spices and heat were really really tasty as well. Your hands and napkin will get very "involved". Recommend Uber as very little parking on the 28th and M location. We would definitely eat there again.

The food was very flavorful. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the restaurant. We have been to several Ethiopian restaurants around the area and enjoyed this one the best.

We arrived on time for our party-of-two reservation but the hostess sat another party of two that arrived after us before seating us. We were then ushered to the first floor dining area, which was noisy, even though the other party had been sent upstairs. After considerable effort, she finally seated us upstairs. The food was good but the portions were small, esp. relative to the price. We won't be back.

It was my second time at DAS. The first time was last summer, and was memorable. This time, I invited colleagues and hoped it was as good as last summer. There was no disappointment. Gracious service. Lovely ambiance. Linen table cloths. Excellent and unique cuisine.

Very good expression of Ethiopian cuisine. Beautiful location and dining room. Excellent wait staff and service. Decent wine selection. They also have Ethiopian Beer. They will give you a fork if you ask for on, which I did. Didn't really get the whole deal where you pick up your food with a piece of spongy bread. Taste good, though.

My wife requested Ethiopian for her birthday dinner and this place seemed to fit the bill. Oh, how wrong I was! Our server was rather curt with us and walked away even before we finished ordering, then was no where to be seen. I can forgive bad service if the food is good, but the chicken and meat sampler that we ordered tasted like it had been sitting around all day long. The chicken wing was dry and the beef stew with the hard boiled egg was practically inedible. The only bright side was the vegetarian sampler, which had some nice flavors. However, the portions were meager, even considering we got the samplers. Would not go back nor recommend this place to others.

A great neighborhood institution. Provides an excellent opportunity for people new to Ethiopian cuisine to try it in a friendly and familiar setting. I hope this place stays around for a long time.
