We ended up leaving because after 2 hours our food had not come out. The restaurant was clearly not ready to reopen.
Hi Sadie, Thank you for your feedback and I would would like to acknowledge we took a very optimistic approach to this day. I do hope you will come back in the future after we have had some time to iron out our process and return to the service standard our guests have always enjoyed. Should you need any assistance with a future reservation, please do not hesitate to reach out. All the Best, Robert General Manger - Dirty Habit DC
We made a res last Friday and no one answered the phone we called over 8 times because the res was for 9:15 which resy accepted but it looked on google they were closed. No one answered to confirm so we didn’t go. We called MANY times. Very unprofessional
Dear Anonymous. I do apologize you were not able to reach out host stand through our phones - is it possible you called the Hotel phone number instead of the Restaurant? I also believe there may be some confusion in the platform from which we take reservations. RESY does not accept our reservation - Open Table is the only platform we use...as there seems to be confusion I believe this review should be amended. All the Best, Robert General Manager
Service was horrible. The waitress was nice, but rarely came around. Took about 15 minutes to get waters and put a drink/app order in. Took another 30 mins to get bread and an app that’s served cold (aka low prep time). We had to track her down for water refills. One of the servers took our food to another table and held it super close to their unmasked faces before realizing it was not theirs. Then attempted to give it to us (uh, COVID transmission anyone?).
The drinks were amazing. I’d go back only for those.
Thank you very much for you feedback. I very much appreciate the areas pointed out for improvement and the acknowledgement of our cocktail program. Being open for 2 days after a year of closure does lead to a learning curve. I look forward to seeing you on your next experience, and proving our status of a fantastic restaurant. If I can be of assistance with a future reservation, please do not hesitate to let me know. All the Best, Robert General Manger - Dirty Habit DC
Everything was amazing! The service, cocktails, ambiance.. everything! Would highly recommend.
Avoid if you want a casual visit for a conversation with food and drink if it’s before an event at the arena.
Nice Place - great service - good food neat ambiance
The short ribs were fabulously delicious!
Met a friend for lunch, they had a brunch menu and a bar menu available for the time we were dining. Beautiful atmosphere, there were a couple of pesky fruit flies which was annoying but the service was good and my rock shrimp and salad were great. I would definitely come again, probably for dinner next time.
Exquisite! Jackson was as good as has been noted here before. The beet salad appetizer was perfect in flavor, size and presentation. The added Brussels sprouts made it even better. The burger with a side salad instead of fries, was among the best I’ve had.
The chef and the prep team are to be commended!
We had the Sea Bass and it did not disappoint, it was delicious and the service was excellent!
Food was excellent and the service was unobtrusive and just the right amount of checking up.
Fabulous and fun, very energetic! Service was great, considering it was a very busy Friday night.
We shared the Tempura shrimp.. good but a little greasy, charcuterie board...fine, dinners were burgers (ok) short ribs(great!) and Sea Bass (fabulous)
Nice little hot spot!
Food was delicious. We were able to be seated early. Service was decent
Location was key for what we needed.
Food wasn’t great
The staff were friendly enough, but stretched a little thin. The food was fine, but not out of this world. The noise was significant.
Dirty habit is a great place to grab a drink as the ambiance is great and the happy hour deal is solid. However, in regards to dinner, it was very overpriced for the food that we received Portions were very small for averaging $30 a plate.
Somewhat limited menu but well prepared food. Interesting drink menu. We had a very nice waiter who helped us negotiate the offerings.
Went for brunch at 11AM on a Sunday - not my first choice but we were going to a 12 noon Caps game and it was convenient. We had a reservation. Service was terrible. We had to ask multiple times for drinks. I got up to serve myself water since there was no server in site. Food was pretty good, but the complete lack of service didn't make up for it.
Great brunch menu! Good service! Beautiful restaurant!
Jackson was amazing and welcoming and made brunch 1000x more fun. The Bloody Mary was especially delicious - it’s spicy, so if that’s your jam, it’s definitely for you.
Went with wife over Valentines weekend. The four course meal option was HORRIBLE!!! First course I chose came out and looked like a tuna fruit roll up rolled flat on a plate with two bread stick pieces... The second course was gnocchi which was good but portion size was so small, I think there was like four pieces of gnocchi on my plate. The third course was duck, which was cold, unseasoned, and just plain. The last course was there take on German chocolate cake. But far from it... it was a brownie at best. Left disappointed after spending $300 for a dinner that left us walking out and going to the closest fast food place to get something to eat. I wouldn’t recommend this place for dinner but if you’re there for a drink, it’s okay... Don’t waste your money!!! The hype is not worth it...
It was wonderful. Liz was the best.
The restaurant has a nice ambience. It was crowded but expected for DC. We thought the food was overpriced. However, the drinks were worth it.
It was horrible This entire experience. The advertising was very deceptive.
The food was very good and our waiter was excellent. However, there was a thirty minute delay seating us (8:00 reservation and seated at 8:30) and we didn’t get our main course until 10. The wait staff was very pleasant and did provide champagne for the wait but the delay was frustrating. We would like to give the restaurant one more chance because the food and staff were otherwise great.
Great special date night location. I enjoyed the ambiance and the food was absolutely fabulous.
I have very low standards when it comes to food and personally dislike food reviewers. But let me tell you. An $89 valentines deal for each person for a four course meal. Sounds great, but the food portions were very, very tiny. Good food, but maybe worth a $50 deal. I also got a call two days from an employee confining my reservation before Valentine’s Day telling me that the deal is the only option, so I was pretty much forced to paying more than double for what I originally budgeted for and keeping the reservation at that point since it was so late. Nice waitress though, although I can tell the hostess did not treat me and my girlfriend equally to other guests. We were barely acknowledged.
The food was way overpriced for the amount they serve you. My wifi and I left hungry after spending over $200 and went to another restaurant for more food. We are not big eater but believe two appetizers and two main dishes should be enough for two people.
This was our first time. We should have researched it better because we did not realize it is more bar than restaurant and we were seated right in the middle of it. The noise level - not surprisingly - was high because of that. As the bar started to empty out it did get quieter. We were there for Valentines Day and the menu was good. The food was also good but not great except my husband’s onion soup was not hot. The service was also good. I don’t think we will go back.
Food was absolutely delicious and the attention from the servers was superb. Will definitely recommend to friends.
I went here for an early Valentine's Day and birthday celebration, and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very attentive to our table's needs and questions to provide an amazingly welcoming dining experience, even going as far as offering a pairing of wines for meals we ordered. Very good service! Would HIGHLY recommend giving them a try.
Amazing lunch. Great place for a meeting.
Went for my birthday. the look of the place was great. Truffle fries were amazing. Burger was okay.
Extremely fresh food, highly attentive staff, great drinks, highly recommend for any date night!
Eating brunch before Caps game, and things moved at a brisk pace so we made it with time to spare. The eggs in my wife's benedictb were not as hot as they should have been, but the rest of that dish and my french toast were delicious. Server was prompt and friendly.
Excellent food , friendly and cert very polite service and the restaraunt is well designed for privacy
I loved the ambiance. I’ll be back during the hot months to enjoy the outside.
