From a business breakfast to a family luncheon to an office meeting or cocktail reception, Declaration can provide custom catering for any occasion.
We enjoyed the pizza very much as well as our entrees. It was moderately busy but we felt ‘left’ by our waiter for far too long. Had to call him over to take our entree orders.
Braised pork Ragu was wonderful.
Went after Nats game with my family who loves pizza. Pizza was so-so and service was slow. It took several minutes for waiter to come to our table after we sat down, despite the fact that there were few tables full when we arrived. After we got our drinks, the waiter disappeared. Finally, someone who appeared to be a manager walked by and I was able to place our order. Then it took a while to get our check and pay.
If you are heading to a game, the location cannot be beat. It wasn't very crowded, but the bar was exceedingly slow. The brunch food was average, but it's a cute, casual spot right next to the park.
I love this place..
First time at Declaration. Food was very good, but the menu is somewhat limited, although the Gluten Free pizza was clutch. Great vibe for a Nats pregame. Service was very good. The drinks were good, although pricey. Overall, a great time.
Selected this restaurant to grab a bite during rain delay at Nats park. Reservation was honored immediately and service was good. Ordered wings, double cheeseburger, and margerita pizza with meat toppings. Wings were a little over cooked but good, double cheeseburger was just ok, and pizza had absolutely no flavor!
Good spot to get a solid meal before a Nats game. It's just around the corner from the stadium, but doesn't get as mobbed as the places around 1/2 Street. Good beer and cocktail list. I just had the pizza for dinner and it was very solid.
Outside of the pizza which is acceptable, nobody in our party liked the food
Wondering service and excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere
I LOVE THIS PLACE!! Marcus and Jasmine are great staff.. Thanks for the home town feeling.
One of my fave lunch spots in Navy Yard. Love the meatball and Brussels sprouts starters.
This was our first time at Declarations. The brunch menu was quite short, but had a lot of variety. The service was good and our server knowledgeable and attentive. The food looked very good -- all of the various dishes I saw coming out of the kitchen. I had the fried chicken and waffle. The chicken was well cooked and moist; however, it had NO seasoning -- therefore NO taste. There was no salt or pepper on any of the tables, so I couldn't add myself. So... the meal was disappointing. I will give it one more try -- want to test out the pizza.
The flies inside the restaurant really ruined the atmosphere
2nd time was just as great as the 1st. Servers are attentive and welcoming. my new favorite place.
the atmosphere is great. I felt welcomed at the moment I entered.
Went for restaurant week. They’re apparently known for their pizza, but didn’t have any on the prix fix menu. Food was ok, nothing special. Fruit flies and other flies around my food (melon and beet salad) was pretty offputting. I know it can be hard to control flies in the summer, but I’ve never experienced a restaurant situation with numerous bugs flying around and constantly landing on my food. They need to set up some traps.
The food was on point and the waitress was friendly
We went for restaurant week. It took almost 2 hours to get all our courses and 20 minutes to get our checks. The food wasnt BAD, but it was only okay. Spend your valuable Restaurant Week lunchtime somewhere else.
This was my first visit - took advantage of Restaurant Week and what a pleasant treat just around the corner from my office. Nice, casual atmosphere, excellent food, good service. Bonus - a really pleasant surprise when I was informed by the waitress that the Restaurant Week lunch included a glass of wine!
Will be returning again today.
Stopped in before a DC United game. The staff was friendly, the food was good, and the drinks were extremely reasonable ($8 cocktails!). You can't really ask for more from a pre-game spot.
I'd definitely come here again! Great, casual atmosphere with fresh modern-rustic décor. Solid cocktail menu and unique pizzas. Outstanding service. One of my friends ordered his pizza "extra crispy." The chef thought he overdid it, and even though my friend told the waitress he thought the pizza looked great and was happy with it, the chef wasn't satisfied with it so he made a second one the way he meant to the first time. We enjoyed both pizzas! Above and beyond on service,
Food was wonderful, great happy hour portions. Limited seating though.
Popped in after a Nats baseball game. Zucchini Chips and The Thomas Jefferson pizza w/added pepperoni. We shared both and they hit the spot. It was quiet and peaceful. Our waitress was spot on and attentive. Only negative is the cat that brought the pizza...didn't speak other than a mumble, had a tooth pick in his mouth(very unprofessional) and he didn't take away the empty zucchini chips bowl that was in the way on the smallish table for a pizza. Will pop in again.
We were just about the only diners after a Nats game. Inattentive servers delayed our ordering and meal. Additional drinks were not offered. Mediocre food.
Location is good, but we will not go back.
Declaration is pretty standard fare. I found the selection to be good and the pizza my table split was good. It's a nice choice if going to a Nats game.
Everything about this place was amazing... just a little uncomfortable with the amount of flys that was flying around while eating. It was also very hot in there. Besides that, I loved everyone who worked there and all the amazing food we had there... Them meatballs were freaking amazing!!
The apps were very good. For dinner we ordered a pizza and the raft. The raging came put and was cold. Our server, who was excellent, took it and apologized but it came back out barely lukewarm.
Had a good time.
Good food and service, very quick. We will definitely go to Declarations again when attending an event at Nat's Park.
This place would have gotten a higher review, but the service we received was pretty terrible. Food was ok, but there were major meal items that were not listed on the menu which would have impacted my choice had I known. I believe with a different server, the outcome would have been better. I did like the decor and the location to Nats Park is great.
I wish the pizza was crispier. A little on the soggy side!
Great service, food was very good. Very convenient location in a fun area.
It was right before the Home Run Derby held at Nationals Park and the place was absolutely packed. Sat in bar area but still had some trouble getting consistent service. Prices were great and food was amazing. Even other people’s plates looked great.
I understand the extra noise and excitement was due to the Home Run Derby crowd, but our service was poor from the beginning of the meal to the end. The food was mediocre at best, to include barely being warm by the time it reached our table. I might tell a friend to try Declaration but I wouldn't recommend it as a regular stop. It left me disappointed and hungry for something more.
Went with a group of 6. Server was not attentive. Entres came out at all different times. Also my fiancé’s salad had missing ingredients and the chicken was not cooked fully.
Food was awesome. Our food came out about 35 minutes after the order and the server gave us a free pizza because the wait was long :)
Typical food close to the ballpark. Unfortunately, fries over cooked and cold, calamari had enough oil on the plate to fry a whole chicken. Disgusting!!! Service was fine!!
Dinner before Nats game.
