The cocktails are a wonder, the location couldn’t be better, and the ambiance is very nice in the small restaurant section. Service was good, too. Unfortunately for us foodies, a second visit confirmed that the food is just okay. The spring rolls were a bit greasy, the fish a bit over cooked with no seasoning though the accompanying sauce was very nice. The tiramisu was unlike any I’ve had before but was a wonderfully surprising and tasty end to the meal.

We went on a Friday evening so it was crowded. We were seated near the bar so people stood near our table while we were eating. Also, we had to find some one to provide us service. I definitely would have sat outside if I was only there for drinks. The outside area with the fire pits was nice. Because of the crowd and noise, it is not the best place for dinner on a Friday night.

Very poor service. Also, eight dollars for one small gluten-free corn muffin seems extremely pricey.

We had a great time here for Sunday brunch and were seated in the private dining room. The service was great and the food even better. A great spot to wow out-of-towners!

Was looking for a fun, interesting exciting place to catch up with an old friend. Dirty Habit delivered. Really enjoyed the place. I am typically a fine-dining person, and Dirty Habit is more casual dining, but make no mistake, it is a significant cut above “bar food.” The restaurant and the knowledgeable and attentive staff were firing on all cylinders. Will go back for sure.

Great space - great decor, good service. The dishes I had were a bit disjointed. Hamachi crudo was over powered by the creme - duck 2 ways- the mushrooms had zero flavor and the duck sausage seemed a throw away. Date had the pasta w lamb- it was excellent- the sides of truffle fries and Brussels sprouts were also great.

Hotel restaurants are hit or miss, but this one I would recommend even if you are staying somewhere else. Food is delicious and well prepared, with a nice choice of entrees. I especially recommend the Arctic Char and Chicken. It’s a long, narrow restaurant, so the ambience is a little weird, but would definitely recommend

When my guest and I arrived our table wasn't ready so the hostess offered us a glass of champagne and showed us to the lobby area to be seated. Our server was fantastic she was extremely knowledgeable about the drink menu. The food was delicious and hot when it came out. I have nothing bad to say about my experience. I will definitely be back.

Reservation was made to celebrate girlfriend’s 25th birthday. I am mixed on how to feel with overall experience because between the host and waitress there was no communication made or at least none that I could tell that reservation was for birthday as once we were seated was asked if we were celebrating anything in particular leaving my girlfriend to wonder if I had even shared information. That being said, girlfriend was given a dessert with happy birthday written out, but left to wonder had waitress not ask when being seated if she would have received one despite me sharing information during reservation details. While our waitress was very nice and attentive we had a tough time hearing hear from time to time as her volume when speaking was rather low for the moderate noise level in restaurant. The food (Appetizer: Grilled Octopus, Entrees: Duck Duo & Prime Ribeye) were good but not great. The highlight of the evening were the cocktails and the reason we would come back.

We selected this restaurant for a meal before a performance at Sidney Harmon Hall around the corner. The web site listed a pre-theater special. That's why we went there as opposed to others in the area. When we were seated, we asked about the special and the server told us it was only good before 6pm. I found no such limitation on their web site. We stayed because it was too much trouble and too late to go elsewhere. Food, ambiance and service were fine but overpriced even for this area. We could have raised a fuss, but did not. Note to management: If you intend such limitations, be sure to state them on your web site.

Outstanding Restaurant! I stayed at the Monaco and used OpenTable for recommendations, and I'm so glad Dirty Habit was one of the first suggestions. It's a fun, lively restaurant. The ambiance and atmosphere is inviting and modern and the service and food are incredible. I asked my server for recommendations, and he said the pork chop was the best in DC. He was not kidding. It was truly exceptional, as was the bottle of wine he recommended. It paired perfectly.

The meat was tender and succulent, served with a cremini puree that really added a great depth of flavor. The cocktails were great and the bourbon selection was spot-on. My server was fantastic, always there when I need something, never intrusive and had great knowledge of the menu.

Staying at the hotel, I also went for breakfast and had a top-notch meal. I will definitely dine here again next time I'm in DC. Thank you for a great experience!

Not a good meal. Strange menu for a hotel . Unusual food hamburgers with eggs on top. Grilled calamari
Very tough. Fish over cooked and sauce overwhelmed fish. Not a good place to eat.

I love this location for dinner and happy hour so I thought I would give brunch a try. The hostess was lovely and very cordial. Our service was not the best once we placed our order. We had to ask for refills quite a few times and also salt and pepper. I was also disappointed that there was a black hair in my egg whites, but I did not say anything as I know these things sometime happen. I will be back again for happy hour but not brunch anymore.

The restaurant was louder than what I expected. Definitely has more of an upbeat bar code versus a sit-down dinner place. Nonetheless, the food was amazing! Some of the best seafood I’ve had in DC.

Restaurant week during the week had a brunch menu. Overall ok. The items we wanted had a surcharge. Most rememberable from the menu we had was the tomato soup. Very good. Nice probably for happy hour. Nice ambience.

I really wanted to love everything about this place but our service was so terrible. We went for brunch just the three of us but we were never given a cocktail menu so when the waitress finally came to take our orders we already had our food orders ready so we just ordered standard mimosas and a Bloody Mary to make the process faster since the waitress didn’t seem to come around too often. Two of us got our drinks with the appetizer but one person didn’t get their mimosa until after we asked about it when the entree came. On multiple occasions we were sitting with empty glasses and no water with our meals but no one was even walking through our section to flag down to ask for refills. When we got our desserts one of the orders was completely the wrong thing. What we thought would be a quick brunch since we had such a small group ended up taking 2.5 hours. Beautiful atmosphere but I don’t know if I’ll be returning.

We had to wait for our food for very long time. Our server wouldn't even wait for a second to look up the menu for last time. We had keep asking to pour us some water. Two other tables who came in way later then us were served before us, our food was given to the other table. People like us with little children shouldn't be waiting that long. By the time our food arrived our kids started getting fussy and crying because they were all hungry. Our check and the list of items ordered had 2 different amounts. Overall we were very embarrassed in front of our guests. Next time will think before taking anyone there.
