    The Chef's Table experience was worth every penny and more. I went to celebrate my friend's milestone birthday and were impressed from the start. The staff, Justin Weber, Chef Camacho, and our server Katya, made us feel so welcome and provided us with a fantastic dining experience! Each course was an experience in of itself and we had a hard time picking our favorite dish at the end of the night! Truly a symphony of flavors. I'll be back!

    Outstanding experience. Food was diverse in style and excellent combinations of so many ingredients. The curated wine pairings are a must as they were so good. Unique presentation of the food and final preparation of some dishes at the table added to the overall awesome experience. The table is in the middle of the action as well as secluded from the dining room. It was fun to watch the kitchen staff at work on the wood fired grills as well as the chef preparing our meal.
    dLeña - Chef TableResponded on February 9, 2024

    I found out about the Chef’s Table here through an instagram reel and just knew I had to try it! The food was amazing! Everything was presented beautifully and you can tell all the ingredients were fresh. The executive chef prepared the food where we could watch which was so much fun to see and he presented each course to us! The table also had a fantastic view of the kitchen. Everything was delicious and I can’t wait to go back again! The wine pairing was spot on so I highly recommend adding that to your meal.

    Great experience - we were seated by the manager and given a rundown on how everything would work and how they cook the food. We were served each course by the chef, who prepared them right in front of us and explained them as he served us. I also had the wine pairing which was excellent. Great food, great service.

    The Chefs Table experience was amazing! If you want an experience that makes you feel super special, with a unique and tailored menu, this place is for you. Chef Carlos was super attentive and the food he put out was high quality and extremely flavorful. If you enjoy a nice drink with your meal, the wine pairing option is a must with your meal. Our server, Deja, was amazing as well. She explained the drink pairing, with the courses, and ensured our table and utensils were reset in between. Overall, this was an amazing experience and worth the money spent!

    This dining experience requires a thesaurus - we need a better word than outstanding or incredible. We have been to a lot of fine dining and wonderful tasting experiences. This one offers something different! We were comfortably ensconced in our own extremely comfortable curved booth ‘inside’ the service area. This is a busy popular high end restaurant with a generous menu, and we got to see this amazing hard working talented group of people come together and put out gorgeous dish after gorgeous dish. Getting to see the marriage of technology with the traditional to turn out these dishes was just amazing. Our experience was perfection - from the moment we arrived and were greeted. The server assigned to us could not have been better. And CHEF”S FOOD, this is the only time I will use all caps :D you have to be there to understand how having someone of this quality, make your food in front of you, present it to you, and then you get to taste something really exceptional all comes together to make for a perfect bite - just does not get any better. Highly highly recommend!

When we checked into our reservation for the chef's table experience, we were taken to our private table facing the kitchen, and we then had the most amazing experience with us, the chef and the kitchen!!

It was definitely a wonderful and special date night. Thank you Chef, Josh, and all who participated in making this a truly exceptional evening!!

    We had a birthday celebration and our experience was exceptional! The chef and his support staff were fantastic, very attentive and engaging! The chef was answering our questions, providing some background stories, and making sure we were having a great time. Our server, Troy was fantastic as well / energetic, positive, very engaging and attentive to details. We left the restaurant happy, relaxed and impressed by food as well! We loved the fact that the most of the dishes were reflective of the chef’s background, brining authentic Mexican cooking into the mix. Long story short - highly recommended. Food, ambiance, service staff - everything was great!

    What an incredible experience. The GM and the Chef made us feel like we were apart of their very own family. The food was unforgettable. We will definitely go back. We actually finished the 8 course meal and wanted to try to signature dishes. The Wagyu Empanadas and the Short rib tacos. Definitely worth staying a little longer for. Can’t tell you how wonderful everything was. Highly recommend this experience to all

    Honestly, one of the best meals I’ve ever had in DC and maybe one of the best Chefs Table experiences I’ve ever had anywhere. Chef Carlos was so gracious and incredibly skilled with the menu - it’s clear he loves what he does and i loved hearing about where the recipes came from. My favorite ended up being one that was his mothers original recipe - just pure magic. Every course was AMAZING! Can’t recommend highly enough!
    dLeña - Chef TableResponded on June 27, 2023
    We're so pleased you enjoyed your Chef's tasting experience and wine pairing, as well as the "pure magic" shared by Chef Carlos. It is always an honor for us to share with our guests the inspiration behind every recipe and dish we serve. We hope to welcome you back soon for another amazing culinary journey!

    It was the best food journey that I’ve ever experienced. It’s like all of the dishes were evaluated, but the chef, Carlos, was able to keep it simple and clean. The hosted Cindy was spectacular, and the server provided excellent customer service and detailed knowledge of our wine paring. dLena is a great restaurant, and sitting at the chef's table was the best. The chef explained every dish and even spoke about his personal experience as a chef. I would but this as one of the best restaurants in DC.

    The dLeña chef’s table is one of the most delicious and memorable dining experiences I’ve ever had — and I’m including Michelin. It’s impossible to say which dish was my favorite, and I hate to spoil it for those who choose to indulge and trust the chef’s skill and curation. Don’t wait for a special occasion— make this the special occasion!

    One of the best tasting menu experiences I’ve ever had. Sitting at a table in the kitchen, watching the chefs work and having the chef explain each dish was truly incredible. The service was spectacular, chef Carlos, Isabella, and the GM Josh treated us incredibly well. If you are looking for a delicious, unique and personal dining experience this is definitely it!

    We were celebrating our 13 year Anniversary and the chef was amazing and the food superb! The Manager and Host seemed to pride themselves in customer service and we received VIP treatment, while attending the chef experience. While facing the kitchen in a secluded table behind the bar, facing the kitchen we were able to view the preparation of all the meals. The culinary team considered their presentation as an art and we agree it was exquisite. We will definitely recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a special place to eat and or chill downstairs and listen to some live music!
