It was a wonderful place to go for authentic, and delicious, Ethiopian cuisine.
Good service. A couple of items on the menu were not available.
I would not recommend this restaurant for one primary reason. They padded the check. Very unethical.
The food and service were very good but it is way too loud
I love this place. I eat here usually once a week. However, this week my service was bad and my mom and I were the only two people in there. No one checked on us at all. We had to ask for the check after finally being served. I hope it is better next time.
Inside was a bit smelly( not sure if proximity to restrooms or certain food smells) but when seated outside, we had a better experience. Restrooms could use some work. Service could be a touch faster. Food was great
I thought the place was just charming. Very polite and courteous staff. Loved the collard greens and lamb dishes. A special place.
The food and the service is always outstanding. We love Ethiopic!
I would recommend it if they’ve had Ethiopian good before and like it. Otherwise, it would not be my first choice to recommend. It was everyone’s (in the party) first time eating Ethiopian and none of us were super impressed, but because we didn’t like the spongy bread. The food was too spicy for 2 of the people in the party, but we were told it’s not spicy. If you like Ethiopian then I’m sure you would love this restaurant!
Great atmosphere, wonderful food and attentive services. We'd never had Etheopian food before. It was a delicious and delightful experience.
We loved our first time here! Unfortunately it was our first time using Open Table and I had not noticed we were reserved for two instead of our party of five, the restaurant took no time accommodating us anyway and we’re so nice about it, although I felt horrible. We brought our three children and asked the waiter with help in a selection, thankfully he knew just what to recommend and even gave us the heads up that our younger two would not like much of the meal - he was right. They ate more than we thought they would but had a better time with the desert. Wonderful restaurant with a fantastic staff, do yourself a favor and go!
Good food and service. Great outdoor seating. Family friendly but also great for date night!
Love the food , service, and atmosphere. One of our go to places in our Capitol Hill/H Street neighborhood. Great for visitors, who often don't have access to Ethiopian cuisine.
The food is excellent and so was the service
Absolutely love Ethiopic! Best Ethiopian restaurant in DC!
As the floors and walls are bare, the sound is very loud and that is with only half the restaurant full. The fish to go with the veggie platter is fried and boney with minimal meat on it at best so avoid.
enjoyed this local gem very much. diverse eating experience was great. missed out on trying the fish as we ordered it but it was never brought, chicken legs were ok, but the vegie sampler was definitely the thing. I do recommend for fun different location and dining experience~
Good variety of curries - particularly liked beef ribs and ground beef and beets - pleasant and attentive server
Absoluetly love this place. The setting is fairly casual which I like but still interesting and cozy interior. It can get a bit loud during peak dinner hours. The food and service has been consistently good at this place. We ordered the beef tibs and vegetarian sampler I and both dishes were spectacular and full of flavor. I found the servings to be an average size and definitely filling because of the injera.
Great food and service!
All the things at dinner did not arrived at the same time the last dish came when I was almost done with the dinner..They have this special Shiro please don’t order it as it’s not that special.
The food is always good. We were bummed that they didn't have the outdoor seating open and got stuck with kind of a dark corner table, but the food more than made up for the less than ideal seating. This is the go-to Ethiopian spot, at least in this part of town.
Excellent food. They were short staffed so service was a bit slow but very warm and accommodating!
Ethiopic is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in DC. They serve quality food with sincere care and authenticity.
Ethiopic is a gem in the crown of the DC culinary experience.
Food was AH. MAZE. ING!
Our second time here and just a nice as the first. Lovely food, attentive service and simply a wonderful find.
I loved having our Easter Dinner here. The food was delicious - I especially loved the red lentils, the fish and the potato dish. And the honey wine! My boyfriend had the lamb too and he loved it. We will come again. The ambiance is also beautiful, from the art to the music to the arrangement in the restaurant.

This was a great place to have a date in Washington DC area.. the staff is very nice and attentive.. I will be back for a second date and would love to show it off to friends who never ate ethiopic.
Grest table service and reservation handled perfectly. Food very good. Slightly spicier than other Ethiopian food I've had. Great looking place . Classy. Comfortable and attractive. Loud and hard to talk. Overall would definitely return.
Great place! Lots of fun and personality, but very loud. Don't go if you have any hearing problems (at least on a Friday night). I would have like to see more non-spicy vegetarian options.
Whenever I come to dc I always have dinner here. I enjoy the food and the ambience of the restaurant
Will dine there again. Food was delicious as expected. Companion enjoyed also
Exceptional Ethiopian food! I’ve only had Ethiopian a few times and wasn’t sure I liked it. So our group ordered the most popular beef, chicken, and lamb dishes, plus the string beans. Everything was delicious - very flavorful and just the right amount of spice. The wine selection wasn’t much and they didn’t have enough people on the floor so the service was slow, albeit lovely. Great corner location and candlelight ambience.
Food was great but the service was really poor. Don’t blame the server who was doing her best - it was just too understaffed .
Delicious, good value, quiet, great staff
