The Sunday vegan brunch is excellent, even for non-vegans. My dining group included two vegetarians and two omnivores and we all enjoyed the experience immensely. Good variety. Fun to have so many well-prepared items to choose from.
Absolutely terrific! The vegetarian options are superb.
My wife's "new favorite established restaurant." She loves it. She loves the plant-based dominant theme. I love it that you didn't forget those of us others who enjoy something that walks or swims. Beautifully appointed, masterful service...we will be back again.
Best vegan Sunday brunch ever!
wonderful food and lovely service! The food has essences of Middle Eastern influence, with good vegetarian options, fresh local food, good seafood. All was delicious and beautifully plated.
As usual, Equinox was an outstanding dining experience at our usual wedding anniversary dinner location. The tasting menu was well thought out and the wine pairings were spot on. Service from the time of arrival through departure was excellent. We'll be back!
I cannot imagine a lovelier dinner than our recent family celebration at Equinox. We arrived early but were seated without a problem at a table in a quiet corner. We could talk and hear each other easily, which was important to me. The service was completely professional from start to finish. And the food! From the amuse bouches to appetizers and entrees, everything was just delicious! We were just sorry we didn't have room for dessert. It was a lovely and memorable evening, and we will be back to Equinox when we next have a special occasion to celebrate!
Good healthy food options cooked well. Gazpacho and trout are excellent.
Another outstanding visit to Equinox, where the food and service are consistently excellent. This was perfect for a gathering of our colleagues and clients. The crab cakes were delicious and my colleague loved her scallops. Smiles all around. Many thanks!
We came here for a birthday dinner and it was outstanding. I had the grilled abalone mushrooms, one of the plant-based entrees, and it was absolutely phenomenal. The others in our group had the soft shell crab and the ribeye. Our waiter was very helpful and accommodating, and the entire waitstaff made our experience unforgettable. Fantastic meal and fantastic service!
Scallops were dirty and slimy. Food was mediocre at best. Waiter was smarmy. Staff was unprofessional.
Went here to celebrate a work promotion with my girlfriend. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were great.
Equinox was subpar at best. The food wasn't bad but definitely nothing spectacular. The ambience was nice but service was not very good. The waiter was not very helpful when answering questions and he grabbed the check the second it was signed.
Beautiful setting, the food was creatively presented...very delicious. Can't wait to visit again.
Great spot and the vegan dishes were amazing. Georgi was super waiter and made us feel comfortable for a nice meal and time there.
Wonderful in every way. Best meal we had in D.C.
Would highly recommend to anyone whether vegan or not.
Plant based tasting menu was incredible! Al fresco dining was amazing! Wine delectable! All in all perfect dining experience!
Innovative, tasty fried eggplant sticks with nice sauce. Excellent soft-shell crab salad, again with tasty sauce. Pleasant setting in airy indoor space looking out onto lower Connecticut Avenue.
After years of reading about Equinox, it was my first time there. Met a friend who is vegetarian. The Equinox menu is sophisticated and it has serious options for a vegetarian. The decor is understated, but refined (there was a beautiful flower arrangement in the room). The service is excellent - I didn't have to think about it at all, throughout the meal. It was professional, friendly and unobtrusive. Excellent food. Not a noisy room at all.
As always exceptional brunch for vegans and non vegans alike!
I requested the hostess to bring a candle with desserts to celebrate my wife’s birthday. she didn’t do anything about it. Bad service and experience. I will not go back again, food was ok. My steak dry to fast as cut it, poor quality of meat.
Selected the Tasting Menu with Wine Pairing. Food portions were small but wine portions were generous. Food was excellently presented with great taste
One of the best salmon I ever had in the DC area!!! All of us enjoyed our food. Customer service was excellent.
Great location and beautifly decorated.
Great food, well served. I had forgotten how nice it is. Expensive, but reasonably so.
Amazing vegan brunch. Had deserts that I could not believe were dairy free. Can’t wait to go back.
Exceptional! The food was delicious, the ambiance was perfect, and the service was outstanding!! Little expensive but the service and atmosphere of the restaurant were perfect for our special celebration. The food is absolutely delicious! Thx for a wonderful night!
Honestly one of the best meals all three of us have had. We already have plans to return. Exceptional!
I went with my son and his friends while I was visiting DC. The food was inventive and the wait staff was very helpful. The portions are not large, but "right-sized". The food that is good for sharing or eating solo. While not inexpensive, it tasted great and was a fun vibe
Food and service are always spectacular, and outdoor dining is a great option in fine weather such as we had this week.
my huge suggestion is to get rid of the tall stemwear! At brunch my whole glass spilled all over me before i could even enjoy it or my plate of food - my clothes were ruined and luckily a manager/owner was nice enough to have a hair dryer so i could attempt to dry myself off! Many others who i encountered in the bathroom while drying off my clothes had the same issue & all agreed for the small space and hard to get around tables - the stemwear should be much lower or even steam-less to avoid these issues. The glasses are too large and too heavy and are almost guantteer to spill on someone during your visit.
Vegan brunch was amazingly delicious. My daughter is vegan and I saw the brunch on Facebook and knew I had to take her. It was awesome. Tons of selection and soooo yummy. Very attentive service and the chef came out and greeted us. My daughter and I loved it and will return.
I had the Sunday vegan buffet brunch with a friend. The vegan food was excellent and there was plenty of it. The service was friendly and attentive without over doing it. Also, Equinox is a great location that is totally Metro friendly.
The Equinox was a really wonderful experience, from the time we enter and left. The food was incredibly delicious and served most tastefully, the dish that my eggplant was served in made the experience more relaxing and enjoyable. One can tell that every detail was we'll planned. We will recommend .
We had a fabulous Vegan tasting menu with the accompanying wine and enjoyed every moment that we were there! It was worth every penny.
My husband is vegan, so I really want to love this place. Every couple of years or so I try again, and every time I wish I hadn't. It's not that the food is bad -- it isn't. It's just that at the restaurant's price, I expect exceptional food, and it's never gone beyond "good" for me.
I tried the prawns this last time, and after removing their heads and tails, had approximately 4, one inch pieces of shrimp for my meal.
The bathrooms also leave a lot to be desired. There was a stench in the women's room, like you'd find at a bar, and the giant trashcan was full to the brim.
Great vegan options. Consistently excellent.
This was our second time there, and once again both the food and service were excellent. However, we feel the prices are too high and the portions too small. We certainly are not looking for quantity over quality, but dropping about $55 per person when we had no drinks (except water), no alcohol and no desserts, plus left feeling a bit hungry, gives us pause about returning there. Keep up the delicious cooking, but please bring your prices down to earth!
Absolutely fabulous! The dessert table was out of this world. I thoroughly enjoyed the King Mushroom dish and the Mango Salad. And I couldn't believe they were serving the Just Egg scramble. I loved it!
We went for a birthday celebration and the restaurant was quite accommodating for a part of 5. The bartender, Johnny, had great recommendations for specialty cocktails and the food was great. Best dishes were risotto starter, artichoke starter, The falafel salad, sirloin entree. The duck entree was a bit bland, but still quite acceptable. We will definitely return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Equinox. Food was excellent, and the wait staff were prompt, courteous, and knew the menu well; we especially liked that it was quiet.
