Had a cozy dinner for two here, -food was pretty good, limited menu choices but we both had seafood and it was done very well. Not as formal as we had expected.

Food was below average, there was no atmosphere, and it was a bar restaurant. I could not believe that the only restaurant in a Ritz Carlton was a less thn adequate bar restaurant. I was supposed to have a guest meet me for dinner. He called to say he could not come. I'm glad he could not make it because I would have been embarrassed to have chosen such a bad restaurant.

I was staying at the Ritz Carlton for the weekend. The restaurant was such a disappointment and the service was very poor.

We went for lunch, but it looked like a great place for dinner. Prices were reasonable. Be careful with parking on the street. You will get a ticket!

For a restaurant at the Ritz, I expected more. I went for lunch during Restaurant Week and while their normal lunch menu is small the restaurant week menu was tiny - only two relatively unimpressive entree choices - chicken and penne in marinara or salmon. They do give you a big bread basket with all different kinds of bread and salted butter, which were good. I got the butternut squash soup appetizer which was very good. The salmon itself was pretty good - moist and well-seasoned, but the mashed potatoes it came with were nothing special at all. The one dessert choice beside ice cream was a s'more french toast, which was tasty but not something I would go back to order again. It certainly wasn't a bad meal, but I'm not likely to go back.

Went there for Thanksgiving. We didn't realize that the restaurant is now solely contained to the bar. Food and service were great in Ritz style, but still extremely over priced. A normal Thanksgiving for two was over $300 with not a lot of drinks involved.

The food was okay, but the service was inexperienced for a high-end restaurant. The wait staff kept trying to take our plates before we were finished; we were especially shocked when our server touched a plate of unfinished food before asking if the diner was finished (she was not). Then the server took the bowl of soup (even though it was only half eaten). This restauarant has the potential to be good, but with service like this, I am wary of returning.

We had a very nice brunch before heading to the Kennedy Center, which on a beautiful Sunday is a pleasant 15 minute walk. The food was very good and the management staff was incredible. They could not have been nicer, checking to see if all was well and making us feel so comfortable. The atmosphere was industrial, but very calm and quiet on a Sunday in October. Big window let in incredible light. This is our new favorite Kennedy Center area restaurant.

If you want to enjoy a nice, quiet, romantic night out at an upscale restaurant, Fahrenheit should be on your list. The food is delicious, the wine list superb, the mood subdued.

The place was not crowded and reservations were easy to come by, but do not let this dissuade you. One odd note: they have no specials, only what's on menu. Their menu is short but covers everything that you would expect from a modern American restaurant.

The only negative I experienced was the vast expanse of the tables. I sat so far away from my date that our hands couldn't have touched if we wanted them to. The noise level was such that it didn't impair conversation in the least.

If I could have, I would have awarded Fahrenheit 4.5 stars instead of 4.

The restaurant has a very elegrant and upscale feel to it. Gorgeous setting and that set the stage for a great meal. Service was excellent throughout the meal. Our party got the sea bass, burger w/fois gras, filet, and veggie pasta. The sea bass was perfectly cooked. Other dishes looked equally fantastic. Veggie pasta arrived cold and had to be sent back to be reheated (veggie entrees aren't their specialty). Place could use a little background music as it was almost too quiet. Great location for a special occasion.

We went for Mother's Day Brunch and it was superb! I had the most excellent crab cake Benedict and my husband had the lobster omlet. Both were perfectly cooked and served and plated beautifully. Prior to the crab cakes, I had a delicious tomato salad. we love Fahrenheit and go back frequently - which we will continue.

This place seems to be under the radar. My one dinner there and one brunch both took place in a nearly empty dining room. The food is great and service accommodating. A hugh plus is that with an empty room conversation is easy.

Fahrenheit is our favorite restaurant for dinner-and-a-movie nights out -- the food and service are good, and the Georgetown movie theater is in the same building. We highly recommend the signature burger with foie gras and truffle fries -- it's as good as, or maybe better than, Daniel Boulud's burger at DB Bistro Moderne in NYC. Also, before or after dinner, and sometimes after a movie, we enjoy sitting down by the fireplace in the lobby lounge for a drink and/or coffee.

Since Open Table warned us that restaurants frequently have prix fixe menus on New Year's Eve, I went to the website to check. It said nothing, so we went to our 6:30 reservation. I should have called -- the prix fixe was VERY high for the slender portions served. We were not offered tap water and paid $20 for a bottle of "still". The server wouldn't leave us alone before she got our order. All in all, very expensive and quite a disappointment. We usually love Fahrenheit, not the least for the VALUE.

The food was just OK, nothing spectacular (given the cost and expectations). There was zero ambiance; the place was dead (so don't go on a Tuesday). Maybe it's better on the weekends? I hope the same is true for the food. Fortunately, the staff was friendly, professional and very likable.

The lights were so low we couldn't read the wine menu(print also very small)-all flashlights had dead batteries-wine steward very solicitous and so nice. Waiter also very nice. Most food very good although one dish seemed to have been under a heat lamp too long. Service extremely slow, not to due waiter, even though restaurant not full. Very nice about substituting sides. Very quiet which was wonderful as one in our party had a voice problem.

The atmosphere is so interesting in this boutique Ritz Carlton converted from an incinerator.The staff was exceptional. We were greeted personally by the manager who had helped us find the restaurant when we were lost. Then our waiter was so welcoming and attentive, he anticipated our needs. Starting with an heirloom tomato salad that was so sweet, we went on to have three amazing entrees: the sea bass was delicious, tender and buttery; the barbecue salmon had an interesting flavor, great sauce, and the rack of lamb was so generous and tasty. Our wine was the best Malbec we had ever had. It was a celebration of our daughter's move to DC and I now we will return to this restaurant.

Georgeous ambiance. V wry friendly yet unobtrusive service. Kitchen was mediocre. Fois gras was burned accompanied by what appeared to be smuckers apricot preserves. Cod w cherry compote was a bit dry but good flavor. Dessert was very generic probably sysco flourless choc cake tarted up with something advertised as a baileys marshmallow. Didn't workbwell for me. This plus charging $62 for a bottle of la crema Pinot noir added up to not a great value or experience

We really enjoyed our meal. We especially appreciated the accommodation of our 6 year with an "off menu" meal composed of various kid-friendly elements of different dishes. We were also happy to be served quickly so that we could make it to our show at the Kennedy Center with plenty of time. The only negative comments I would have are that I ordered my salad with dressing on the side and it was on the salad and my husband's salmon was a bit overdone.

My first brunch experience at Fahrenheit was lovely -- quiet, gracious and attentive service, good food. My second showed the strain of when things are busier. Several family groups with noisy children or crying babies lessened the sophisticated feeling of the room. After our entrees had been cleared we waited for a very long time, unable to get the attention of our busy waiter. Then someone brought us bread and butter -- meant for another table and which we had never received while waiting for our entrees! As a result, I'd say dinner is the more reliable experience.
