Das Ethiopian - Georgetown
Close to our hotel (Fairmont) in Georgetown, it looked full of atmosphere when we walked past on a Saturday night. So we booked it for the Sunday.
Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Food however was distinctly average in taste even though it sounded quite exotic.
Unique food, great ambiance, and attentive service. The eggplant dish was our favorite.
Excellent service and great Ethiopian food. We were seated upstairs and it had a great vibe and was quieter than the main dining area downstairs.
Celebrated a friend’s birthday and the waitresses came out to sing with a free lemon tart :)
For our last night in DC we booked into Das to try something a little different and boy were we blown away. Great food good wine and friendly service at every step. I’d go back in a heartbeat given a chance.
Love their food palette
Great food, great service and great ambiance. Can’t wait to come back and try more items on the menu!
This was some of the best food I have ever had. Can’t wait to go again!!
Fantastic service and delicious food. Would definitely go back. Perfect for a date night.
It was a wonderful dinner and wonderful food. Will definitely be back.
We have walked by this restaurant many times and it’s always busy so decided to give it a try. The ambiance is lovely and the service is excellent. The food was good but not outstanding and the menu seemed somewhat limited. Overall we enjoyed it however and will likely return.
Wonderful experience. Service warm, knowledgeable, helpful. Food amazing. Ambiance warm and lovely.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The owner came by and had a conversation with us which was especially nice.
Excellent Ethiopian food and a great variety of it, as well. Quite vegetarian-friendly.
Every single aspect of our evening was perfect.
It was a wonderful dinner. Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. Attentive and unrushed. Made birthday celebration extra fun.
Wonderful food so many things to try. Highly recommended.
Simply sumptuous! A must sample restaurant for any visit to DC.
The place is gorgeous and the food beyond amazing! Owner was charming and sweet - will definitely return!
Very delicious food. Good service. Excellent price-value ratio. You should try it. Enjoy!
Great food, lovely service, nice choices for wine--my party had a great time!
The food was so good! Service was friendly and very helpful.
My first time having Ethiopian cuisine and I liked it very much! Hard to not get full on the rolls though.
Absolutely great eating experience. We split the chicken and beef sampler and the vegetarian sampler because we wanted to try a little bit of everything. All of the food was really good, especially liked the beef dishes in the platter. I've eaten some Ethiopian street food before, but this was first time at a sit down restaurant. Be comfortable eating with your hands using the Ethiopian bread, which they'll continue to bring out fresh as you need it.
Delicious! Food was very good and it is fun to eat family style. Location right in Georgetown was also enjoyable.
Lovely service and decor. Have been several times in the last year or two. The quality of the meat in the tibs was lacking, tried the beef last visit and the lamb most recently. Would have been 5* with higher quality meats.
Recommend getting the sampler platters. We ordered a vegetarian platter, a chicken and beef platter and the Shrimp Tib. Shrimp was amazing!!
I love the patio and even though it was raining and we had to sit inside we had a great evening.
Great service and amazing food!!!
Wish they had a few options for typical Ethiopian desserts.
Fantastic experience. The food is amazing and the servers are super friendly. Only negative point would be that the room gets loud when it gets crowded
Delicious food! Friendly staff, great location! Will go back!
Das was wonderful in every way. The staff are marvelous. Thoughtful. Passionate about their food. Attentive without hovering. The injera was very nice. We had the vegetarian sampler, beef and chicken sampler and the lamb tips. The lamb was nothing all that special (but would be good for less adventurous eaters or those who don’t like spice). The vegetables were my favorite. Just wonderful. My guess is that if you want something really authentic, this will not be as spicy or sour as you’d expect. But I was introducing my daughter and her boyfriend to the cuisine and so this was perfect. The room itself is lovely. The linens crisp and bright. Classy without being formal or stuffy. A lovely place to bring friends or family. Highly recommend!
Delicious food and friendly service. We were here visiting from out of state and were not disappointed. Traditional recipes in a modern bright clean and quiet location.
We had an incredible meal. First time to try Ethiopian and now we’re hooked! Service staff were very helpful and patient. Best meal we had in DC during our 4 day stay. Hope to return again.
As lovely as ever. Quiet and comfortable main dining room and very nice small patio. Very gracious and warm service, without fail. Vegetarian sampler is an excellent choice and the new lamb dish was very tasty. Always a pleasure to eat here - never had a bad night yet.
Food was exactly as good as we had expected. When we told the waitress we would be splitting two appetizers, she cut them in half and arranged them beautifully on a platter.
Our first experience with Ethiopian food couldn’t have been better. Every staff member was welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our waitress guided us through the menu selections with excellent suggestions. Four of us shared 2 appetizers and 3 main dishes. Everything was delicious!
Outstanding food. The service is excellent in this attractive restaurant.
Fantastic food and more so an excellent honey wine to go with it! Service is stellar and the ambiance perfect! I’ve oft times passed this restaurant but I’m glad I stopped in today! You can’t go wrong! A first for me was flax seed or telba wat .... just delicious and highly recommended! Thank you!!!
Delicious food, great for sharing. Sat outside on a nice, sunny day. Great experience.
