The waitress and whole service was outstanding. Perfect place to bring your date!

A very nice bistro. Had the eggs Benedict with salmon. The end was superbly finished by the waiter when they gave my daughter two small stuffed animals.

We will probably return to this bistro in the future.

The food was good, but basic considering the price, without much selection. I'd recommend finding a restaurant outside the hotel.

The restaurant and bar are together.

There was a private event in the hotel and bistro was way understaffed. John and Michael did a heroic job trying to cover a large area and holiday crowd. Did not get any food for more than an hour!!

The is the second time I took clients to Degrees Bistro for lunch. The service, food, and ambiance were great. This restaurant will stay in my repertoire for entertaining clients.

Great service, food, atmosphere and location. (located in the Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown) I would definitely eat here again.

Made a reservation on Open Table and when I arrived at the restaurant, it was closed for a private event. Very frustrating!

It was outstanding! I was able to connect with a few friends and associates while enjoying samples of the new menu! I will surely be back soon!

Degrees is not really a restaurant....there was no one there on a Saturday night. We had good service but there is absolutely no ambiance. The TV was on in the bar so it didn't feel at all like we were having a special night out. The Ritz should be more transparent that this is not a full dining experience.

We enjoyed breakfast at Degrees. When we found it on Open Table, we didn't realize that it's the hotel restaurant of the Ritz-Carlton. Service was excellent. Our server Marija was very attentive and we had a nice chat with her. Food was pretty good. My husband got the chicken and waffles which he enjoyed. He opted for syrup on the side. Their version of this dish is a little unusual because it comes with syrup but the chicken is already slathered in a sausage gravy. Personally, I'd skip the gravy and opt for syrup instead. I had the biscuits with sausage and gravy. It was pretty good but I didn't care for the sausage. In terms of cost, the dishes were on par with many restaurants in DC that serve brunch. However, I felt that the cost of hot coffee was exorbitant. Why would anyone pay $6.50 for a cup of regular hot coffee? There was nothing special or different about it. A glass of orange juice was also $6.50. That is high but we're used to paying about $5 for orange juice in NYC. But $6.50 for coffee is outrageous.

Limited menu, good service. Bar, unless you enjoy American football , don't go on game nights

Update- They dont do their ramen burgers, which is why we were intrigued by this spot.
Their Sriracha honey chicken wings were pretty decent (their only saving grace), which was on the house, because we were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy doesn't like dessert. Very sweet gesture.
We got the small plates:
The fish tacos were dry and lacked flavor. The duck carnitas nachos- similar, meat was dry and the nachos just weren't tasty. Enough said.
I was surprised by the 5 stars given to this place. Maybe the entrees are better... hence the good reviews?

Ritz can adn should do better. Maybe we just happened on a bad night but it was not pretty and the darkness of the room was the only savimg grace. If you don't want to be seen, don't care about mediocre and over priced food and drinks (even by R C standards) and pock yousresel up to walk a couple o blocks to a plethora of more intersting venues, then this is the place for you.

The food and service were great, especially for Valentines Day. The appetizers were delicious but extremely over-priced. Four chicken wings cost about $10-12. Though the food presentation and quality were excellent, it's not quite enough bang for your buck for dinner. Recommend Degrees for drinks and apps but not much more.

The Living Room, the Georgetown Ritz Carlton's lobby lounge, is a delightful place to eat wonderful food, to be pleasantly watched over by staff and to have relaxed "old friends" conversation. The full dining room menu happened to be available the Sunday night I was there because of repair work underway in that main dining room. Couldn't have been more satisfying. Bite size onion soup/gruyere morsels, crab croquettes and fish cooked to perfection. And a subtle but perfect maple pie slice to share at the end. I've been there before, but this time it was all more elegant and somehow more satisfying.

A friend and I participated in Restaurant Week, and I was very impressed. For the first course, we had the cheddar ale soup (cheesy without being heavy), my lunch was the onion soup burger (medium well, it was the perfect amount of flavor; I didn't even need condiments), and dessert was a German chocolate mousse with fresh fruit (if I thought it would have been appropriate to lick the plate, I would have). The service was outstanding; all of the servers were attentive without being overbearing. I was please to find out the restaurant was close to my job; we will definitely be back!
