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.

Food was great. Wine list was good, though the champagne list was lacking. The service was much below par than what I was expecting. Though the waiter had great suggestions for wine, he was barely at the table, we didn't have silverware when they started bringing food, and my friend almost had her dinner in her lap when the food runner brought the food out. There were a few little things, such as not bringing sweet tea when asked (was unsweetened) or giving us the wrong food that I personally wouldn't expect from a restaurant in the Ritz. Also, my friend wanted to order a mixed drink instead of wine, but it seemed that ordering a drink that wasn't on the menu was a burdening task.

The food was great BUT if they're going to have such a limited menu, they should post exactly what the menu will be. For Mother's Day brunch, it was disappointing there were no kid-friendly options (my 3 and 4 year olds simply won't eat chilled asparagus soup or foie gras!), and there was no traditonal brunch fare (even the finest restaurants offer something that you can load up with syrup for brunch!). that said, the room was great, the service was perfect, and our food was very tasty - albeit not what we had in mind.

Great restaurant. Great place for a quiet environment, good food and good service. Also has a nice bar in the hotel that is great for a pre- or after dinner drink. It wasn't crowded or loud which is exactly what we were looking for. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, because the restaurant and bar are in a hotel, most guests are hotel guests. With rare exceptions, this keeps the restaurant and bar from being overcrowded and eliminates the weeks long wait for reservations which is commonplace for most great restaurants in the DC area. For some reason, people just don't tend to frequent hotel restaurants/bars except as a hotel guest.

Farenheit never disappoints! The food is always excellent, and we never tire of one of the best designed rooms in Washington. Dining in this room, with great food presented simply but beautifully is always a pleasure. The service is consistently good - attentive but never intruding.

The roasted tomato soup, which has been on the menu for some time, is amazing! The taste of both the tomatoes and the roasting process comes through, and the accompanying little grilled cheese sandwich is inspired - first class comfort food. My dining partner and I both had fish (salmon and tuna)for our entrees and they were prepared perfectly. Sauces are sparingly used, and enhance, rather than mask, the taste of the fish itself.

Go! You will love it

Food choices were disappointing, considering that it was for Easter Brunch. The lamb chops were good, but the other dishes that our group ordered were not. I'd give a thumbs down to their dessert buffet. It was supposed to be the highlight of their menu, but it was not.

We were the only ones in the restaurant for 45 minutes, and the service was still slow. Once some other guests arrived, we were not served at all unless we asked for something. Bizarre! Food was OK, but not wonderful.

I took my husband and son there to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. It was the first time for both my husband and son. I have been there several times with my friends and liked it a lot. But for some reasons this time was not a great experience. The service and food were not what we expected. And we were disappointed that the birthday dessert were included in our bill. My husband and son said they will not return. I might give it another try.

Fahrenheit falls short at the price point. The food quality is somewhere between good and very good by today's standards and the prices. The kitchen produces plates with little to no culinary creativity. The dining room itself is beautiful. The service is very good but not excellent. In terms of our specific meal... Caesar Salad was basic and unexceptional. The tuna tartare was very good and garnished with a caper berry cut in half. We both had the strip steak ordered medium rare... both came med well to well and had to be sent back.
We had the chocolate dessert which was definitely not house made (tasted like Sarah Lee)
The wine list is unexceptional with pricing at 2.25 times retail which is not too bad.

Great atmosphere and decor. They have made excellent use of the large open brick space in a historic building. Use of lots of black, red, brick and metal worked well with the building's original use as an incinerator. Plenty of space between the tables made it easy to carry on a conversation. The food was very good but not quite great.

My dinner and dining experience last night was was happily unremarkable. I am a 60 year old foodie and could find nothing wrong with this restaurant. My daughter was shocked and thrilled when I told her. The service was attentive, not obnoxious. Our table could talk in normal voice and be heard. The food, ah the food, flawless for everyone. We all left happily sated and felt our money was well spent. I am not Tom Seitsma but I hope he goes there soon.

This turned out to be perfect for brunch before scooting quickly to the Kennedy Center for a matinee which will probably be my regular practice now. The staff was warm and friendly and sure to get us out in time to make the curtain. And our food was yummy -- especially the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon.

Took my girlfriend to Fahrenheit for Valentine's Day. They had a special menu that was over $110/person and was certainly not worth it from the food perspective. The appitizers were fine and the soup was fine as well, unfortunately the entres were both way under my expectations. No taste and nothing special from any perspective. Desserts were fine, but again we are talking about over $100/person. The setting was pretty though with a completely empty restaurant they sat us next to someone and we had to listen to the entire time because it was so quiet. The service was very good however and he was helpful in picking out a replacement wine because the one we chose was out.

It was really disappointing for a restaurant at a Ritz Carlton location. It took someone over 5 minutes to come to our table and take our drink order. The furniture looked liked it needed to be replaced. In fact, the chair I was sitting in was coming apart. My wife and I both got the hamburger. The buns were stale, no bacon was on the burger as ordered, and the fries were lukewarm. It was not worth the price of the meal, and we think we would have had a better meal at McDonalds.

The folks at Fahrenheit were great. They read my OpenTable request for a romantic table for Valentine's Day Brunch and gave us a wonderful spot and wished us a happy anniversary. The menu was expensive but the experience was great. We always try to do something special on Valentine's Day and the Ritz Fahrenheit brunch plus a matinee at the Marinski Ballet was fabulous.

Making the reservation on OpenTable was a great experience.

It was a bit cheeky for Fahrenheit to charge $115 prixe fixe for a four course meal when four courses can obviously be assembled for les from the a la carte menu. I can't imagine this restauraunt is making any money, with unremarkable food and excessive prices.

My experience at Fahrenheit on Valentine's Day weekend was exceptional. The food was excellent and the ambience made it even better. The service was great and was always on point. I only wish the full menu was open that evening. We were only limited to the Valentine's Day menu (which was just a bit over-priced). Overall, the experience was memorable and would definitely recommend it to friends and family for special occasions.

Fahrenheit was a disappointment: The waiter had problems understanding our orders; the champagne we ordered (to celebrate our wedding anniversary) turned out not to have been kept cold so we had to choose another bottle than our preferred brand; the foie gras had no taste at all; the ribs, which we picked due to the recommendation from the waiter, were cold and not containing the actual rib bones contrary to what the waiter told us; the portions were small given the high prices.

With only three tables occupied we were surprised to see the kitchen/waiting staff struggle like this.

This was our second visit for Sunday brunch, with great choices of made-to-order breakfast and lunch items, satisying everyone in our party. The food was outstanding and the service was solicitous. They went out of their way to make all accomodations necessary for an elderly friend with a walker. We certainly intend to go again.

Food was pretty good overall. My steak was adequate, nothing special. The truffle mac and cheese was great! The service was nothing special. Our reservation was erroneously canceled, and no one acknowledged the birthday my guest was celebrating...probably because they didn't check the reservation. To the server's credit though, I did forget my credit card, and she called to let me know. All in all, not bad, but for the price, I was expecting a bit more.

Called to confirm my reservation for Christmas dinner and was told they were closed that day. He told me I had reached Fahrenheit and there was no way I had a reservation there. Panic! Called the hotel’s concierge. Called Fahrenheit back to get an email address. Was then told they were open on Christmas and they had my reservation. No apology.Dinner was prix fixe – food was not what I expected, but OK. Service was nonexistent. We saw our waiter three times. The sommelier was charming - we joked with him. Dessert buffet was fun. In a word “frustrating”.

The restaurant is visually stunning, with very high ceilings and dark decor. The seats are a little wide. The Crab Salad appetizer was very enjoyable even if the red bell pepper was more dominant than the crab flavor. Using the crab salad as a spread on the crostini resulted in a wonderful treat. The lobster bisque soup was heavenly, if rich. The sea bass entree had a curious vanilla sauce that would have been more appropriate for a desert, but the fish was expertly cooked. Our server disappeared 3/4 the way through the meal, but others we more than willing to bring coffee and tea. Our sever reappeared to present the check. As a nice touch, the restaurant will allow you to split a glass of wine if a whole glass seems too much.

Amazing, again. Impeccable service, excellent food, and warm ambiance and staff made our anniversary dinner a wonderful experience. The chef accomodated our request for a tasting menu (it was a quiet night, so we felt the request wouldn't disrupt meals for other diners) and truly surpassed any combination we could have done by ordering ourselves. We had high expectations knowing the restaurant is part of the Ritz-Carlton, but even those expectations were exceeded. This dinner experience moved Fahrenheit to the top of our list.

We dined here for our anniversary and were exceptionally pleased. I was somewhat leery considering the restaurant is inisde a hotel and sometimes the food is less than desirable and overpriced. However, we had no reason for concern. The ambiance is warm and romantic and the service was outstanding. I had informed the restaurant when we made our reservation that it was our 2nd anniversary and our first time there and they went out of their way to acknoweldge our anniversary and to ensure that our time there was enjoyable. The food was excellent and my husband even commented that it was one of the top 5 steaks he had ever had. We felt that it was reasonably priced for the quality and the service. We would definitely return.
