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.

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.

Very underwhelming. Checked in 10 minutes earlier than reservation time for indoor dining, but they had a table available so we were seated immediately, which was nice. Great ambiance for a date, the decorations were fun and trendy. Our server was friendly but barely interacted with us the entire night — the service definitely should have been a lot better considering the gratuity was already included. The food and cocktails were decent, the drinks came out fast but the food took a while, and it was not worth the wait. The only special thing worth mentioning was the restaurant’s cool location and the outdoor seating it offers in the courtyard. When we called to confirm the reservation, we were informed we would be receiving a complimentary dessert for our anniversary celebration but we were disappointed when we didn’t receive anythig. The experience wasn’t worth the price, probably wouldn’t come back.

Everything was great other than the server seemed like she wanted to turn the table and was overly attentive. Although the food quality was excellent, the portion size was small plate in quantity. Overall great food and ambiance.

Dino was a fantastic server. He knew everything about the menu and we also had a lovely chat with him. He was so personable and kind and genuinely cared that we had a nice experience. The food was incredible but very expensive. I highly recommend if you're looking for a splurge. I had the watermelon tartare appetizer and it tasted exactly like tuna, it was like a mind trick! For my main course, I had the Dirty Habit impossible burger (vegetarian) and it was amazing. The bun was the most delicious bun I have had in my life and the fried egg on top was brilliant. Situated steps away from the Capital One Arena, it is perfect for a dinner before a venue!

I’ve been to Dirty Habit in the past many times and I’ve always enjoyed myself. However, this time while taking someone on a date we were placed outside (upon our request) to dine and saw two huge rats run across our feet while eating there. We immediately moved away from the table not finishing our meals and I informed the staff. The only thing they would suggest is asking if we wanted to get the check. There was no trying to compensate and smooth it over with anything else. It was embarrassing and frustrating. Yet I didnt show it. I just finished the evening by going to get another drink at their outdoor bar n leaving.

Not sure if it’s been a rat problem at this Dc location in the past but after paying $200 I would have expected something better than rats running around outside within their dining premises.

We were very pleased with our experience at Dirty Habits! They remembered our anniversary by beginning the evening with two glasses of champagne and finished the meal with a molten lava cake.

The young lady who waited on us was delightful and very informative.

Both of our dishes were more than we expected (in flavor and portion). Can't wait to revisit Dirty Habits again.

I went for dinner here to celebrate my partner’s birthday. It was a Monday night, and a number of restaurants we had considered were closed on Mondays, so I chose Dirty Habit due to its unique and diverse menu of cuisines from all over. Let me tell you: it did not disappoint. We shared the wagyu tartare and paper tuna noodles to start, which were delightful. We followed them with the lamb ragu and miso glazed barramundi, both of them were also remarkable. My partner had the DH old fashioned to drink and I had two of the signature drink, Rice and Roses, which I highly recommend to anyone who loves sweet drinks. You couldn’t taste the alcohol as much but after two glasses, I realized that it really packs a punch. Our server, Trevor, kindly noted that it was my partner’s birthday and added the Golden Habit, which was the molten lava cake and a side of blender sorbet, with a candle as dessert at the end. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to go to Dirty Habit and would highly recommend it for a special occasion.

The restaurant is attractive and the service we received was good. The food was also of high quality although choice was a little limited.

It is not easy to hold a conversation here owing to the noise and there was a cooking smell from the grill which was unfortunate.

However overall, very good
