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.

    Service was extremely slow due to there being one waiter for an entire floor. Very unacceptable. Had reservations for 1:15 and wasn’t seated until 1:45.

    Food was good. 11:30am seemed too early for them for Lunch, not really ready and had to keep flagging service. Likely better when it picks up. Food was good. They were testing the fire alarm so that hurt the ambiance.

    This was my first time at the Gatsby restaurant and when I tell you I had a wonderful time. I mean it. My server Q was everything. His Communication A1, Service A1, got my drink right that’s a 1000. Just understand this you need to ask for Q he will take care of you and your party. On top of that he was training Ms. Micah who I know is going to be just as excellent as Q. So my overall experience was Great.

    Food was delicious, nice variety on the menu. Service was extremely slow, took 15 minutes to get our cocktails after ordering. Very cold inside the restaurant on the first floor. We had to wait 10 minutes to be seated even thought we had reservation.

    Didn’t know there was a limit for how long we could be at our table, especially after I made reservations and I didn’t order bottomless anything. Every other restaurant puts a limit for when you have bottomless everything but an employee came to the table and told us we had to leave which I felt was so unprofessional. Upon making reservations or before being seated they need to inform you of that because I’m sure not coming back to Gatsby if I’m gonna be asked to leave especially when I’m still spending money.

    This first time experience, was HORRIBLE!!!!!! Our glasses were dirty 3 of them had lip prints from the last person. The service was awful, our waiter had an attitude and never checked on us. The food was horrible, they ran out of what we originally went there for. It was also super loud where we sitting. It was just an awful experience!!!!!!! They're overrated.

    Server was lovely and the food was good although the all American was a little unimaginative. The ambience was good but the space was a little disappointing - the photographs of the space were amazing on the website so probably contributed to an underwhelming first impression. That said, the servers were lovely and the food was good enough to return and to recommend.

    Nothing special about this place. Mediocre burger for $19. Calamari was good but the dipping sauce still had some lime skin in it that made it taste bitter. I wouldn’t say the food was terrible but for the price, I was expecting a little more effort. Service was above average and the waiter was nice but overall I wouldn’t think of this place twice.

    Spinach and artichoke dip was awful. Seemed stale and didn’t have much flavor. Gf’s fries were cold, even when we asked for a fresh plate of fries, it still didn’t taste good. I had the spaghetti and meatballs which was okay. Didn’t try the drinks but we won’t be coming back to try them.

    I think this place needs some polishing up. Probably gets a bit of a pass as one block from baseball stadium. But service needs to be crisper (no mumbling) and food needs to be sharper (don’t overdress salad, deepfry lemons, over cook chicken etc).

    Made a reservation as we were in the area for the Christmas Lights at the Stadium. We were seated at a table that was very cold as the inner door was broken and every time the outer door opened the whole restaurant filled with a cold wind and it blew into our table. We ordered the chicken pot pie and the seafood linguine - the pot pie was amazing - their was not a big enough portion of pasta for the price.

    They were out of everything we wanted, wings, fish and chips, steak dinner, chicken pot pie and chein blanc. My boyfriend enjoyed the burger he ended up ordering, but everything else was just ok. We had to go get our waiter after 20 minutes of no service and they people next to us complained as well. Overall, it was an OK experience.
