Gatsby is a reimagined American diner by KNEAD Hospitality + Design in collaboration with Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery. With favorites like the famous monte cristo sandwich, fried chicken or today's blue plate special, Gatsby brings you back to the days of the diner, but from a fresh perspective. Whether you crave breakfast at any time of day or a smashburger & a milkshake, Gatsby is the perfect place. Our desserts were created by famed NYC Bakery, Mah-Ze-Dahr, and cannot be missed! Located at the corner of Half and N Streets, directly in front of Nats Park's Centerfield Gate, and overlooking the ballpark from our second floor dining room, Gatsby is the perfect pre/post game venue from which to celebrate.

    Gatsby is a super cute location right by Nationals Park-- went out for a date and had an AMAZING time! The ambiance is a vibe and the staff is sooo personable!! We had the delight of sitting at one of Gio's tables. He is an absolute delight and made sure we had an amazing time! The perfect addition to our night!

    The descriptions of dishes are more detailed than the dishes themselves. No detectable squash in the arancini. No detectable avocado or goat cheese in the eggplant sandwich (which had way too much eggplant). Disappointing.

    We stopped in before a nats game and had an excellent experience. The service was impeccable and they were very accommodating for our 2 yo son. The deviled eggs are a must try. We will definitely return.

    Our waitress was amazing and she also gave great recommendations. She suggested Greta’s Punch for a tasty alcoholic beverage, it was incredible. We had the artichoke and spinach dip, the monte cristo and a slice of baked apple pie. All of it was delicious. We will definitely be coming back on our next vacation here.

    The vibes and ambiance of Gatsby are awesome and the cocktails are super fun. Our waitress was very nice as all. However, I thought the food was sort of mediocre and overpriced for dinner. Might be more of a cocktail and small bites place as somewhere to go to dinner

    Our server was friendly knowledgeable and definitely went above and beyond to ensure that we had a pleasurable dining experience. An example of this was when he ran up to the kitchen to request that they not put cheese on smash burger because I failed to tell him at the time he took our order. If i had a complaint it would be that they don’t have sweetened ice tea. However, they provided us with simple syrup which was a quick and reasonable solution. We also asked for a bit of old bay seasoning on the side which took a while and a few requests before it actually made it to the table. Despite this, I would go again because not only did the food come out quickly but it was fresh and tasty.

    My family and I had our final dinner of our vacation here, and the food was fantastic. We had actually gone earlier in the week following a Nationals game and decided to come back a second time. The environment can be quite loud, but the food is outstanding and the desserts are the best. The Watergate cake and cheesecake are, themselves, reason enough to visit.

    Food and service were very good. Proximity to the ballpark was a plus. The only drawback was the noise level. It was difficult to have a conversation without speaking in a loud voice.

    Servers were flexible as we awaited rain delay at Nationals ballpark across the street. Checked in with us frequently. Happy hour specials on food and drinks were a good value. Decor was attractive and supported a relaxed atmosphere, good for conversation. Bathroom clean and modern, though a bit dark.

    It started off a bit rocky, but it quickly became one of my favorite brunch spots. Made a 12:30 reservation. At 12:15, as I was walking over I received a text telling me that my table was ready. When I arrived and spoke to the hostess, she said that my table would be ready shortly. I replied, telling her that I had received a text letting me know that the table was ready. She got a little snarky with me, but could see that I wasn't happy and she seated up quickly. Beyond that, the place is awesome and we had great service from Charles and the rest of the staff. Food and drinks were all awesome. Highly recommend!

    The bathrooms on the third level were very dark - black fixtures, black walls and dim lighting. Using the restroom was like walking into a haunted house. Otherwise, the food, service, and atmosphere were just fine.
