Dirty Habit Ratings and Reviews
Not vegetarian friendly or accommodating. Asked the waiter what was vegetarian and was told the menu changes and there was no entree now, so fries. We spent over 100 dollars here-was asked to leave when I brought in a sandwich from elsewhere so I could eat dinner. Really disappointing.
The bartender was great. Revamped outdoor space aims for more sophistication, but is the same , if not worse. The new Indoor dining area is nice, despite a slightly over-neurotic manager. Unfortunately, the food is very heavy on deep fried. In the age of health consciousness it seems odd. I am not suggesting carrots and lettuce, but having that many items deep fried with no alternatives (I asked) seems odd. Overall, my impression is that they’re trying too hard to be. It’s hip and different from the old version - a recipe for failure . Won’t be back.
The ambiance is very modern, sexy, and chic. So when I saw that they had a brunch I knew it was on...I just hope they had reservations for the time-frame we were vying for. To my surprise they had the reservations and I was elated!
So, everybody meets a Dirty Habit and If you've never been then it's kind of hard to find (something I enjoy. lol) , but we were promptly seated. Our Server David was nothing short of amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and one of my friends had a Birthday and he made sure to make her birthday very memorable at Dirty Habit.
Appetizer wise we had the Truffle Fries and the Donuts. Both were pretty good. They really know how to make good truffle fries. I was pleased, because the last few places I have been with truffle fries has left me underwhelmed.
I decided on going with the Lobster Poutine and boy am I glad I did. I want to thank Yelp for the reviews as well as David. When they mentioned this is a hearty meal, they are not lying. You get your money's worth and it has pretty decent portions of Lobster. The majority of the group ordered this dish and everybody seemed to enjoy it. One other person ordered the Burger and mentioned it was really good as well.
I have to mention the bottomless Mimosas ( or punch deal). It was amazing. The punch of the day was a bourbon with lemon juice top with Prosecco. I did not even touch the mimosas, the punches had me feeling good. The manager I believe his name was JoJo (forgive me if i'm wrong, he's not hard to miss. It's the bald guy dressed really nice) was attentive and came over and introduced himself and gave us a little history about his background. Overall the service + food was amazing. I can definitely see myself adding Dirty Habit to my Brunch line-up.
My friend and I went to Dirty Habit pre theater and really had a delightful meal of small plates. The cocktails were unique without being kitchy, and were of good quality. For the going prices in DC, the value was good. The decor is fun. We would like to come back on a non-rainy day to try the courtyard bar and the fireplace!!
I read great reviews for brunch at DH so I was really looking forward to coming. While service was friendly and food orders were correct (nothing too special on the menu), it took about 10 minutes to get refills on bottomless drinks. Since I had organized the brunch, several people in my group complained to me that they did not think it was worth the price to wait. I personally had 5 drinks in just over 2 hours. That's about half an hour for every drink. Not good at all when you are paying for bottomless, and when you can go to another restaurant (Vinoteca, e.g.) that will set a pitcher at the table so guests don't sit with empty drinks. The drinks were also not very alcoholic, and a few of my friends complained they were going home sober. Take that for what it's worth :)
Jojo the manager saved the experience he was so warm and inviting and welcoming to our 2 Tots. He listened to our concerns (which were minor) and his customer service was stellar. We had a nice seating area and It was my birthday food and drinks were amazing .I love kimpton hotels and the ambiance. I would go there for for any meal and happy hour. Def will be my go to for upscale outings.
Beautiful restaurant -can't beat the ambience. Service is a little slow and good is nothing outstanding but depending on the occasion is good enough for most guests. This is my second trip on a Sunday brunch so not sure what dinner or other nights are like.
My lobster and shrimp poutine (brunch) was lovely but was mostly potatoes... Great coffee. Great bloody marys but a bit on the small side. Omelette was very very disappointing. Not at all fluffy and a bit skimpy. I can make a much better one myself and I'm no chef... Nice ambiance -- good service for the most part but it seems like everyone disappeared at the end (once things slowed)-- when it came to paying up plus they brought us the wrong toast and when we asked they said they gave us that because they ran out of what we ordered when surely they should have told us. They could use a bit more professionalism for such a posh spot..
The food was really incredible. We really enjoyed the experience. It was nice to be able to try several different items off the menu. It just was very pricy for the amount of food received. 19 dollars for 2 bites of halibut seems off the mark. The specialty drinks are very small as well paying 14 dollars for that little amount of alcohol was shocking. Overall we enjoyed our time there but the bill was 110 bucks for 2 people, two drinks and not alot of food. I am not inclined to go back. I would go back for a post show drink...but not dinner. Maybe that's what they intend.
Lively place, great décor, huge outdoor space with 2 fire pits. Bar tenders were wonderful, attentive and friendly. One of them was designing a new drink for the menu and gave us samples to get out opinions (interesting smoky tequila drink). The other bar tender created a drink based on what I wanted (sometimes you don't have a specific drink in mind, you just have a taste for something). Food (small plates) on the other hand was disappointing, especially for this price point. The food was just standard tastes; nothing to write home about.
To wrap it up - I'd definitely plan on going back for after-work drinks with friends, but I will not stay for dinner.
We've dined at majority of the nicer/trendy restaurants in DC and I can't recall a restaurant with smaller portions for the size. Drinks and entrees are really expensive for what you pay (I've been to Komi, Citizen, etc...). Would totally avoid unless you're just going for HH. BTW service really sucked too.
Went to Dirty Habit for a casual girl's night out. The ambiance was amazing. I ordered the "My Little Sunshine" which was delicious, but was literally about a shot's worth of drink. They brought it to me in a small glass and the glass was half full. This should be considered a shooter, not a cocktail, and was definitely not worth $14. Maybe that's a thing the waiter failed to communicate to me before ordering. The food was pretty good, and the atmosphere was perfect. I will definitely go back. I'll just order a different drink next time.
This was not a good experience. Anytime we wanted Service, we had to seek out the waitress. Though we saw servers chatting at the bar (clearly available to wait in tables). We did not even receive menus when we sat down. Then, if we did flag down a server and they were not our waitress, they abruptly advised us they were not our server, instead of kindly listening to our request (which was generally just to find our server). When we finally got our bill, they just provided the total cost, not the itemized receipt?!? The restaurant had beautiful atmosphere and good food, but the abominable service ruins the experience.
Interesting space and a good lunch menu - plenty of choices but not too large. The prix fixe lunch of $19 for 2 courses and $21 for desert was very fair for the delicious food, although the choices are really limited (two starters and three mains). My Caesar salad was delicious with a chunk of grilled romaine on one side and chopped on the other, with a tasty dressing - it would have benefitted from either more anchovies in the dressing or some fresh/pickled on top (or both!) The falafel and eggplant wrap was a generous portion and absolutely delicious with excellent fries on the side. Will definitely come here again when in the Penn Quarter.
My family and I had a great time at Dirty Habit for my birthday. Our waiter, Dave, was excellent and made sure we had everything we needed. I'm very impressed with the renovations. I'm definitely coming back again. We ordered a variety of items from the menu (steak and eggs, donuts, eggs benedict, veggie omelet) and everything was excellent. The manager, JoJo, greeted us as well and we had a great conversation. Thank you for making my birthday special.
