    We had never eaten at an Ethiopian restaurant before, so the whole experience was new. Our sever was very helpful and personable. Of our party of four, three very much enjoyed the food and the entire experience. The other member of our party ordered the braised beef short ribs and was very disappointed (they were fatty and stringy). I would definitely come back if in DC again. Definitely vegetarian/vegan friendly. Just friendly in general, too.

    First time doing Ethiopian, the server was very helpful. The meal was amazing! Didn’t know exactly what to expect but my experience exceeded many prior dinners. I was here for vacation but plan to find an Ethiopian place back home. Dessert was European influenced and very good.

    Das Ethiopian is a charming place. The dinners, all, seem to enjoy themselves more than seems to be the case at most resturants. That may be due, in part, to the family style sharing. Cautions. 1. Make sure that your guests really like Ethiopian food as IMO, it is a rather acquired taste. For example, some people just don't take to the cold, soggy bread. 2. No access to the bathroom for those who rely on wheelchairs.

    DAS never fails to deliver. We had a party of 9 which included 7 adults and 2 toddlers. The food was served in a timely manner and the staff was quick to manage any possible need for the young children--both of whom LOVED the food.

    Exceptional Ethiopian food -- food for many palates, vegetarian to omnivore -- in a classy and appealing environment. Courteous, attentive wait staff. Fresh and authentic food -- truthfully, better than many meals I've eaten in Addis Ababa. My favorite Georgetown (DC) restaurant.

    Our first time having Ethiopian and at such a lovely place. Although they couldn't find our reservation, they graciously seated us at a lovely window side table. We ordered several appetizers and entrees, along with some wine. Our server accommodated us with gluten-free bread and explained everything we were served. Lovely family meal.

    Food is very good though we would have liked spicier—condiments on the table would keep it from tasting blandified for Americans. Excellent & friendly service. Ambience: more fabrics & Ethiopian artifacts would be great. It is not decorated to reflect the culture except for a few b/w photos on the wall.

    The restaurant is pretty and the serving staff was very nice and attentive. The food is expensive for Ethiopian food compared to most other Ethiopian places in Washington, DC. Unfortunately the chicken legs in both of our dishes were hard, dry and overall not eatable. We could not finish them because they were so bad (which I have never experienced in my life, including in Ethiopia), complained to the (very nice) server and got our beers for free as a compensation. We were apparently not the only ones complaining about the chicken that night.

    Took our granddaughter to dinner here. We shared 2 shrimp tibs and a cheese appetizer (would not order the cheese again), a vegetarian platter, a beef dish (very spicy), 2 chocolate desserts with a vanilla ice cream. We left feeling very happy and satisfied. Very pleasant room. Lovely, leisurely dinner.

    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.
