My daughter and I had brunch before we went to the Kennedy Center. The brunch menu varied and we were able to make substitutions to our meal. We splurged for dessert and had the chocolate velvet cake. It was decadent and delicious. I won’t hesitate to go back again.

First time visit and wanted to try before theater. Excellent service and food - from the soup to the trout and the portabello mushroom/quinoa entrees. Good wine selections. Highly recommend.

I am a regular diner of District Commons at Foggy Bottom. I like to bring friends and business partners here for lunch and dinner. The staff are always pleasant and accommodating. They have a great happy hour. The food is always good and fresh. Mixed drinks and wine are also very good!

I have dined at District Commons many times, and the service has always been outstanding. This was, unfortunately, not the case this evening. The food was as it always it, excellent, but the service was not. I was overlooked, passed from server to server, and generally not served well. This was a first for me. I'm certain just a bad night for them. I missed my regular server, Sammy.

Good meal but not wonderful. There are too many great places to go in D.C. to go back here

We can’t say enough about the awesome meal we enjoyed. Oysters were sweet. Flatbread with lamb sausage was amazing. The three of us who had the amberjack special were delighted. The pumpkin dessert was delish. The restaurant is now a fav of ours in DC.

We wanted a convenient, walk-able mid-range place at which to meet friends. District Commons hit all those marks. We’ll continue to “use” it as such.

Went for brunch on New Year’s Day. Pretzel baguettes were delicious! Coconut pancakes were ridiculously tasty. Highly recommend for quality unpretentious brunch or everyday meal.
