By the time we were finished it was busy so things slowed down during dessert and coffee. Greek salad delicious, but dolmas minuscule and nothing special. Found entrees overpriced. Very lively hip crowd/bar scene. Indoor and outdoor seating.

The second time was so disappointing. We had to send back the shrimp bc it wasn’t cooked. I actually spit it out. The Churros came out cold. The chocolate dipping sauce was solid. We also had to send that back. They manager tried to make it right and discounted our meal. The lamb shank and Bronzino were delicious. We don’t plan to return.

Service was impeccable from start to finish, Paul our server in particular was very helpful; he gave us a lot of background information about the chef and the restaurant and everything he recommended was fantastic. The host and manager and runners were all very warm and professional as well. Ambience is nice and it wasn’t too loud. The brunch for 2 people is fantastic value. Definitely will come back again

This was an excellent dining experience on every level. Beautiful ambiance, welcoming, client-oriented staff, creative, highest quality food, beautiful presentation, everything fresh, fresh, FRESH. Beautifully crafted desserts, twists on old favorites. Wonderful wine selection. We loved the combination of Mediterranean cuisines: Moroccan, Italian, Greek and Spanish. And we loved our server, "Paul," who was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and made the best suggestions for enhancing our dining experience. We can't wait to return.

Food, service by Pavel and the atmosphere couldn’t have been better. Our party of 5 stumbled on the restaurant as we happened to be in the area, but we will be back and expect it to become a favorite! Highly recommend!

The many mezze selections alone would have made a great dinner, but the entrees (lamb shank, risotto and dorade at our table) were amazing. This is not an inexpensive dinner, but worth every penny. We will be back many times.

I think the best approach at this great restaurant is to order tapas. Only order one or two at a time otherwise you quickly run out of table room. Our waiter should have suggested this approach, but once we figured this out the execution was flawless. Save room for the flan for dessert - one of a kind!

Not much variety in flavor which was mostly sweet sour ish not much use of fresh herbs or not even very Mediterranean . Staff were too busy but not attentive and the hood was minesvuke in portion for the price . Not comparable to other med places in the dmv . Maybe the music also … try something g more soothing than euro tech .

They were backed up even though we had reservations, and the only place to wait was awkwardly in the doorway. The space design is odd with a large guest table at the front that felt like a bar with a large group congregating around. The actual bar is very pretty, but seems a bit too large for the space making the dining space cramped to the point that one person in our party was pretty much sitting with their backside in the adjoining table. Service was unremarkable. They seemed very frazzled, said the bar was backed up and that drinks would take 30 min+, service was choppy at best, food put on the table with no presentation or explanation, all around felt disheveled and chaotic. Sadly, the food didn't compensate for the lack of service. For the price there are significantly better options nearby, including from the same restaurant group. The bathroom line backed up awkwardly into the dining space frequently....likely because of the multiple parties occupying a restroom at the same time.

They were super accommodating and the service was outstanding. Shout out to our amazing waitress Bernice(sp)? We tried almost every mezze - all of them were delicious!! Favorites were the tuna crudo and the spanakopita but we loved every single one. Our entrees were amazing as well. I loved my truffle risotto. They have an impressive wine list to match their food. I had no problem finding a wine that I wanted to drink at a reasonable price point. It was truly one of the best meals I’ve had in a while and six people will now be heartily recommending it to all of their friends. Thank you to Dolce Vita for making my friend’s birthday dinner so memorable!!

The waiters are all super friendly, but some instruction on how to calmly serve would be helpful. Also, the bartender made us a special drink but I think it was missing the main ingriedient. Overall, this place is pretty good, but some slight tweeks would make it tops.

We could hear every word of the larger, noisy group next to us. It was so disruptive that we just wanted to wrap it up and leave. We went across the street to Le Diplómate, which was 5x more crowded and yet much more private and intimate than Dolce Vita… I feel like a well-placed speaker or two could’ve made a big difference. Acoustics are crucial to pleasant dining. You don’t want to feel like you are dining with the table next to you. Would not go back to dine.. maybe just to the bar for drinks, which is the same setup as Ghibellina.

We ordered a lot of meze (small plates). Probably should have specified some of the order of things because by the time my sardines (my favorite) came, I couldn’t really enjoy them. My spritzer was delicious but a bit strong ! I would go back. The only real negative was the service. Our waiter was very nice, but the crew bringing the items were like the Keystone Cops. They brought us someone else’s food about 5 times. And kept bringing us the introductory breads, etc. It took quite a while to get all our food. A bit too long actually. Maybe an off night for them? Short on help? But very good food. Worth the visit.

Beef Chop first class, Branzino the best I have had in DC in 30 years of going to restaurants here, the Truffle Risoto was given high praise by our French guests. The Meze was also delicious especially the beef souvlaki and scallops. Will return with guests and friends!
