Christmas Eve Special Menus & Offers
Less time in the kitchen means more time with your loved ones. Spend Christmas Eve with the Dirty Habit family over a delicious prix-fixe, family-style dinner crafted from scratch by Chef Escalante.
This was the Thanksgiving dinner private event, and there was a set menu and price with choice of white or dark meat turkey and choice of sides and dessert. With three glasses of wine, it was $75 per person, which seemed reasonable for D.C. The tip is automatically added on, so $200 a couple. I would think most people would be generous and tip at least 20% or more on Thanksgiving, so felt that was unnecessary but okay. Our server didn’t seem happy to be there, not that I can blame her working on that day, but any question we asked about the food was met with a kind of “well duh” response, like of course they’re cooked this way! The glasses of wine were more like sips, tastings of 1oz. The turkey was very dry; the stuffing was burnt. I’m just surprised as usually this place is nice and the food and service are wonderful. That’s why I chose it over other places. Hopefully, it was a one-time thing - but maybe management needs to reward those working on a holiday better to ensure the higher standards are maintained?
Went in for a quick bite. Beets 4 ways always great, salad served with it is excellent and perfectly sized. French onion soup with short rib is an inventive and tasty take on an old recipe—the chef is a master.
Thank you Dino for a great evening.
Very expensive; average food. Service was great.
This was a great spot for an intimate dinner with family. The service was great and food was amazing!
Always had an amazing time at the restaurant. Beautiful decor. Friendly staff and guests. I love this place.
Ordered the steak and frites. The steak tasted great. Asked twice for two new garlic butters, both came out frozen and rock hard. Disappointed with the food quality was really looking forward to eating here.
I really enjoyed myself. I will definitely recommend to friends and family. I’ve listed the restaurant as one of my top five!!!!
Great place to eat, I would recommend for a date night!
A restaurant that is conspicuously full of itself. A rude greeting on arrival, waitress who knew nothing about the menu and neglected us for the most part. Food executed without any imagination, unlike the adjacent hotel which has class. Setting aside diners, probably the worst eating out experience since economy started re-opening in the pandemic.Very expensive for what it is. Used to be a lovely establishment but now needs a brain transplant
We were in a bit of a rush to make it to a concert nearby. Our waitress gave us good answers to all our questions about the cocktail and food menus. Drinks and food were first rate. She also made sure we were served in plenty of time to make it to the concert.
The food was varied and delicious. The portions were also quite large.
The ambience is fabulous but the food was very pricey for small servings.
The service was very poor and food was just okay. However, I believe they knew the service was mediocre and tried to throw in free dessert and Prosecco. Very unfortunate as this restaurant seems to have potential. Terrible use of masks as well. Our server kept pulling his mask down to talk to us when we could clearly hear him just fine with it on.
The restaurant was great. Good ambience, cool vibe, lots of people. Though they were very short staffed they took great care of us. The food was sooooo good! Desserts were great. Drinks were great. Everything was great!
Kimpton hotel restaurants are always top notch!
Quick service, good quality food, a little expensive and did not realize it is attached to a hotel. The ambiance was cool and I would recommend going here.
Dino was a fantastic server. He went above and beyond. Great experience! We will absolutely be back.
Poor food and service
Great drinks and vibe.
So good! Highly recommend the Monaco Sidecar as well.
Second time eating here. First time was for dinner and this specific time for brunch. Overall a very nice environment. I empathize with busy staff which can affect experience.
Amazing food, service & atmosphere. Everything was top notch!
Dino was our server this evening, and he truly was such a joy to be around. He was full of positive energy and attentive during our whole meal. The short rib and lamb ragu were both fork tender and flavorful. The lamb sliders were smokey and juicy. Our cocktails were expertly crafted and creative. We were so happy to see that menu retained its creative and indulgent flair and that the service remained to be top-notch, after not having visited since pre-pandemic times. Thank you, Dirty Habit. We’re so happy to be back!❤️
This is my second time visiting for brunch and I was so pleased with the service and atmosphere. The food was delicious. I brought some guests who have never dined here and they loved it!! I will be back!!
Food tastes old. Restaurant lacks refinement. Noisy due to open kitchen. It has a cheap boutique hotel vibe, meaning furnished with cheap items that look nice in photos, but are not meant for commercial use. Service was comparable to what I would expect at a diner.
The floor was filthy. Larges dust balls covered the carpet.
Service was SLOW and our server kept forgetting things we asked for.
The staff is very friendly and the food is good.
Reservation was at 9pm, got seated at 9:40pm. Had to rush dinner since parking closed at 11. Food was not that great. Most drinks on menu was sold out.
We went for a pregame dinner. Arrived and were seated in the "side room" since the main dining room was booked for a wedding reception. The room was narrow but comfortable. Server arrived promptly and after reviewing the menu we order wine, appetizer, and entree. Everything arrived in appropriate timing. The food was tasty and well prepared. Service was friendly but not "professional".
They automatically add 20% to the food/beverage total - so beware!
All in all, we probably won't be back.
Quality food and pleasant dining experience at Dirty Habit.
Yummy food. Great ambiance. Delicious cocktails. Great outdoor bar
Drinks and ambiance are good. Food is terrible.
Amazing service from host answering questions about my reservation to the friendly goodbyes on our way out. The beverage program is truly genius. Cocktails were well balanced, unique and fresh. The food was also a knock out. Hats off to chef.
Dirty Habit was amazing!!! The ambiance was outstanding and our waiter Dino went above and beyond to make my husband’s birthday special. The drinks were delicious and the our favorite food items were the fried calamari and lamb sliders. Dino was definitely the highlight. He treated us like family and made a genuine effort to make sure we were happy. We will definitely return.
We loved everything about it except unfortunately the service was a bit lacking. With what is going on with the short staffing we could definitely tell! I kind of feel bad for the wait staff. They are doing the best they can. It is noticeable. But we loved the place and the food!!
The service was okay. We had to wait for extended periods to receive our drinks. I requested some sriracha for my dish, but the busman agreed to get it after my wife asked for his assistance. I believe that the waiter had to attend to guests located in other restaurant areas to include the patio, thus the service delays. Overall, I would return but sit at the bar.
Every dish was amazing and well plated!
I hosted a business dinner for 10 people on Tuesday evening and we were set in a small private room and it was perfect for business setting. Staff was wonderful with appetizer recommendations and dinner was fabulous! Calamari appetizers,
