Housed in a former tomato packing warehouse in the historic Ivy City neighborhood of DC, Gravitas is a tasting menu destination from chef-owner Matt Baker. The menu, which changes with the seasons, draws inspiration from local produce and products, while the industrial-modern space (read: original brick and steel beams) boasts antique, floor-to-ceiling windows, which provides for an airy and whimsical dining experience.

Guests can enjoy a four course ($135 per person) or six course ($185 per person) Chef's Tasting menu in our main dining room. Our three course Taste of Gravitas is offered from 5-6pm in our main dining room, or all night at the bar or in the Conservatory.

Enjoy our rooftop, the Conservatory at Ivy City, as an experience by itself or as a stop before or after your dining experience. Conservatory reservations are available to book through our website.

A gratuity of 22% will be added to all parties of 6 or larger.

    Vine a celebrar mi cumpleaños y me la pasé muy bien. El ambiente fue bastante agradable, aunque la comida me quedo a deber un poco en cuestión de sabor y presentación. No fue mala en lo absoluto, pero creo que mi expectativa era mayor para mi tercer restaurante Michelin. Aún así la amabilidad del equipo de cocina y de servicio me hicieron sentir bastante apreciado, el detalle del postre de cumpleaños y que la Chef se acercara a la mesa fue un plus a nuestra experiencia. Espero volver pronto para una segunda buena impresión.

    Every one from waitresses to waiters and sommelier were very courteous and accommodating. The beverage director Judy was very knowledgeable and creative about cocktails. We tried this drink called “liquid Gold” made with Safran and rose water which made it very unique. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made it special. I would highly recommend trying the food at this place if you are interested in a prefix tasting menu.

    We were seated upstairs because of condensation droplets on the first floor. The upstairs temp was barely OK. Bathroom was an inferno. All of the food from the canapes through dessert was outstanding both presentation and flavor. Our server was just OK. We had to ask to have the butter refilled 3 times. New silverware was not placed in a timely manner and the runners were waiting with our hot dishes. Not good. Sommelier was helpful.

    My wife and I had dinner at Gravitas to celebrate our Fourth Wedding Anniversary and the team hit it out of the park. We splurged on the six course tasting menu. I had the wine pairing and my wife had a non-alcoholic cocktail because she is expecting. The team accommodated a dairy allergy for my wife as well as the necessary accommodations for pregnancy without any fuss. The food was fantastic and we had a wonderful time. I particularly enjoyed the chicken main dish. My wife had the wagyu and after a small bite I can confirm that her rave review was spot on. The meal was a splurge for us on a special occasion, but we had an amazing time and found the splurge worth it. Luckily if you want to economize there are plenty of options, so even if your budget is tight I’d recommend Gravitas. What a gem! We’re so happy we spent our special evening with the Gravitas team. Highly recommend!

    Fairly disappointed for a Michelin star spot- food was underwhelming and uninteresting and portions were aggressively small. Ambience (especially the rooftop conversatory) is incredible thought

    Amazing experience. I cant recommend this place enough. It’s inspired, well done, a slightly refined flavor of edgy, and a great celebration of culinary art in a comfortable environment. Think Per Se light if it was in a warehouse and jeans were allowed.

    Excellent food/wine experience and service. I made a small request for a birthday “cake” for my partner - maybe it never got through; still, not to the detriment of the meal.
