So happy to have a vegan brunch. Thank you! Wonderful.
We will be back, Louise
Salmon and Shirt Rib special was delicious. Vegan options were subpar.
Equinox and Chef Todd Gray are outstanding. We had a menu tailored for us and it was just great. Also, bar mixologist made great drinks. Equinox is tops!!
Very creative recipes. Great taste. All were pleased.
Loved the food. The choices were great, especially the mid-week 3-course meal. I had a great margarita too! The service was a little slow but I attribute that to a meeting of the kitchen. I would return here.
We indulged in the Sunday plant-based brunch. What a treat! A bread course was followed by a soup course, followed by two different salads, two "mains" (one was a delightful pasta dish), pancakes and desserts. We added the bottle of Cava - which was served with one of two available juices (we picked the raspberry-pomegranate). We dined al fresco and had very good service. We'll be back!
On Sundays there is an all-vegan fixed price brunch. Soup, breads, salads, pasta, curry, pancakes, dessert were all included. The food was beautiful to look at and everything tasted delicious. Aside from the soup, dishes are served family style and the portions are plentiful. Chef Todd came through the restaurant multiple times to greet people, which added to this special occasion brunch.
Amazing food and excellent service! Their Sunday brunch is the best in DC!
Fantastic, fresh, flavorful, healthy, and thoughtful dishes that were as exciting and delicious as they were beautiful. The owner is kind and sociable to all the guests, and the service is attentive, professional, and accommodating. 10/10, and we go there frequently.
This restaurant has quickly become my new favorite place to eat in DC. Their menu is varied and easily accommodates both vegan and non vegan or vegetarian eaters. All of their dishes are thoughtful and flavorful, always leaving me wanting more. Both dinner and brunch are fantastic! Can’t wait to go back!
I do not live in DC but whenever we are visiting DC we ALWAYS make it a point to eat at Equinox. It is one of our favorite restaurants in DC. I would give it a 10 if they had that option. From the food to the service to the original creative menu they have never failed us. It is also a very comfortable atmosphere and they make you feel like family. A shout out to Chef Todd Gray and his wonderful team.
The fusilli mushroom pasta was great in the beginning but the taste began to be overwhelming. Perhaps a gluten free pasta for the future. Every bite felt like it was missing something. The bass was rubbery but the vegetables accompanying the dish made it bearable. The drinks were the highlight of the meal.
Still the best vegan brunch in the city!
Excellent food and exquisite service. A gem of a place that I will definitely go to again
All of the food was delicious. The fritters were my favorite. The chickpea fries were really good as well. The vegan cheesecake was the best I've ever had.
The food was good but the service was off. Courses came in the wrong order, which was odd as it was all a preset tasting menu. We had to ask three times for more bread as they served 1 slice of three varieties of bread for a party of three. Lastly found it the mixture of family style dishes and single courses didn’t work. One family style grouping was pasta with mushrooms and the other was pancakes with maple syrup- liked both, but you had to eat both off the same plate - with maple syrup running into the pasta. Hope they get the service sorted.
I've been to Equinox many times and service is always friendly and good and food excellent.
Service is amazing and the food is incredibly inventive
It was a wonderful ambiance and the food was outstanding! We are definitely returning soon!!
This was our first time and we were blown away by everything. The service was phenomenal, the food was extraordinary and the ambiance really made our evening. They even took us a half hour early when we arrived. Would definitely recommend.
Food was nasty and overly priced. I would not come here again.
Food was excellent. Special was a truffle pasta dish which was outstanding. Everyone at our table ordered different main courses and all were excellent. Can’t wait to go back after a year of no inside dining—this was our first time after being vaccinated.
Patio is so quite and relaxing with lovely view of city. Makes me happy to live in DC
The food and service were very good. The seating was well thought out and I was comfortable the entire time. I look forward to my next visit.
Great atmosphere and food
Amazing vegan brunch as usual. The service is excellent, the food is delicious, and there’s always something new and interesting to try! This is our go to brunch spot for celebrations - this time a birthday. In addition to the brunch, we ordered mimosas for the table, a bottle of champagne and raspberry pomegranate juice for $35 - really great value for the quality of this place!
The food was nuanced and delicious but the service really blew me away. They went above and beyond resulting in an exceptional experience.
The food is also outstanding. Seasonal fresh and inventive. Chef Is a master and his team the perfect accompaniment.
Love this restaurant so much! Attentive service. Amazing food. Great plant based offerings.
Once again, we had a superb meal at Equinox from start to finish. The menu is inventive without being the least bit weird, the cooking is superb, the service was perfect, and the ambience is delightful. The salmon Wellington was outstanding. Highly recommended!
Wife is Plant Based and had the jambalaya. I had a salmon Wellington. Food was very tasty although a bit overpriced. Service was extremely good. Very friendly staff was very helpful.
This was a great spot for my birthday dinner. The waiters were great and helped me make the most of my day!
We enjoyed our visit. While we enjoyed the shift to plate service, we look forward to the return of the buffet!
There to celebrate the birthday of my vegan wife with her and our two adult children. Great ambiance, great service. The only minus was the changing menu. I had hoped to have the beef which was on the menu at the time of making the reservation but was not there upon our arrival.
We had 2 evenings in Washington DC and felt really lucky to have chosen Equinox for our last evening. The food was delicious and the service was even better. It has a homey atmosphere while doing a beautiful job of safe distancing. I was my birthday and they made it extra special. Thanks Equinox!!!
Delicious food (some of which "happened to be vegan"), & attentive service!
We had the 5 course wine pairing dinner which was fabulous!!! Cheers to Chef Todd Gray- he never disappoints!
By(i)ron, was on point/knowledgeable/pleasant, he really took care of us and went above and beyond!!
The food was absolutely amazing!
Excellent plant-based food on Sundays, great service
