A great experience. Sitting by the door was cold but the food and experience was amazing. Will definitely visit again
it smelled really bad, maybe a sewer issue. we got up & left before we even ordered.
We came to celebrate our 102 years of our Sorority being founded and we came for brunch. The food was delicious and the names were super clever and went with the entire vibe. The drinks were really good and the vibes were most definitely there. We will definitely be coming back!!
Vibes were great for brunch but they are lacking in customer service and quality food. I recommend going out for drinks here rather than brunch/dinner.
Overall the food was sub par. We ordered 3 entrees, each one had zero to little flavor. We took a few bites and could not enjoy the dishes.
Got placed in the atrium while it was raining. It was cold and definitely not good scenery. Food was wrong and sent to wrong table.
An Energetic and lively environment that never disappoints where Black Excellence is celebrated!
The food was everything!! I wish we had a few spots in Florida!
The brunch vibe is lit, the food was good, and mimosa were strong, and the price was right!
So much fun! Especially to come with friends. My food was delicious.
Bomb the whole experience I loved it
It was great.
I came to Half Smoked initially excited to support a Black owned business. The ambiance is cute and the menu names are creative! Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted with a horrible smell almost sewage like. It became hard to ignore throughout the duration of our stay. Our water glasses waiting for us on the table were dirty. We all 3 ordered the cocktail flight which costs $26. All 3 of us found the cocktails to be undrinkable. There were only 2 other people in the restaurant and it took 10/15 minutes to receive our drinks. Upon arriving they either had weird after tastes or tasted foul. We waited roughly 10 minutes for our waiter to come back as we hadn’t ordered food and wanted to discuss the issues with our drinks. Eventually a member of my party had to walk over to the other side of the (empty) restaurant to where our waitress was sitting down and eating with another waitress. While, I do not begrudge someone eating on the job I would hope that they would still be circulating and checking on their patrons (there were literally only 2 other people in the restaurant). Once we told her the issue she was gracious enough to remove the cocktail flights from our bill. But between having been at the restaurant 40 minutes not having our food order taken , the nasty drinks, and foul smell. We decided to take our business elsewhere. I have heard great things about this business and perhaps it was an off night but it makes me reluctant to ever come back.
Food is bomb as well as the music
Super dope place with friendly people, service was slow but food and drinks overall great!
Food was very disappointing. No taste at all. The food outweighed everything else. We went next door to eat afterwards. Would not recommend . The portions are way off. Charged $5 for one side piece of chicken that has NO TASTE. I barely had a handful of potatoes. For $18 plus the $5 side chicken I expected more. Never been to a DC brunch where food is skimpy and barely on the plate. I paid for two side pieces of chicken because one for $5 felt like robbery.
loved it! everyone was super nice and food was delicious!!
My Waitress took forever to bring my bottomless mimosas..
we literally finished our entire meal and was given mimosas AFTER the fact. I was extremely disappointed and did not leave an additional tip as gratuity was taken out at 20% percent. I definitely will not be returning anytime soon until they have some time to correct their issues.
Photos are very deceiving. I’m very go with the flow but it was so bad. The food was terrible. Had to get food sent back. Then paid and left after water and apps. Don’t recommend.
Service was great but food was pretty mediocre
Bartender seemed a little inexperienced with traditional drinks. The old fashioned that we ordered was not good at all. Other than that, it was good.
Had a great time with my husband, Our server Bri, was GREAT! The food was delicious we played games while sipping our Mamosa’s and the photo booth was the added bonus!!!
Love their brunch. You get a good selection and good price for bottomless brunch
The noise was overwhelming. The music was way too loud. I couldn’t hear my husband across the table
Excellent vibe. Food and service were awesome. Casual yet a good time.
One of our dishes had a hair in it, and the replacement dish took upwards of 20+ minutes to come out. Staff was not very attentive, service was subpar and the food was lukewarm.
Waitress was unprofessional and under the influence it was so noisy and unorganized the whole staff including manger was unprofessional worst place I have ever been
Our table was not ready at the reserved time. We weren't seated until about 15- 20 minutes after we arrived. The host and manager were scrambling to find us a table. They originally put us in the back near the kitchen and boxes. We requested another table and moved. Some of the food was well prepared and some of the food wasn't fresh. We were not charged for the food we did send back, The music was too loud. It was heard to hear my friends sitting next to and across from me. The waitress tried to rush us out saying the next reservation was here, which was unfair due to us being seated late. Some of the staff had masks and some did not.
I love how they offer different flavors of mimosas, I ordered The WAP and it was good. My only complaint is the infestation of gnats. The two other parties that were sitting next to us experienced the same thing. It was highly annoying and if I wanted bugs around while I eat, I would've asked for outdoor seating. They also offered a picture booth which was cute but it seemed to have a delay and their were gnats in there too.
Based on the Washington, DC location: Went there for brunch-ish (lol ok around 3pm) and it was an amazing time! They have games to play like Connect 4 and Jenga to play while there. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great music is KEY and they were bringing throwbacks and current hits. And we were seated before our time using this app. Will recommend!
Ate here while we were in D.C.Sausage was probably one of the best ever had. Loved how the check came in the VHS tape box.
. I went for a birthday gathering and the food was mediocre. The eggs were so runny and not cooked. My side of bacon was also undercooked. I won’t be back. I’ve experienced worse but definitely not a place I’ll return to. The music and atmosphere was nice though. But overall I wouldn’t suggest this place for an event or celebration. Waitress was nice but only checked on the table two times.
Food was delicious especially the sweet potato tots, the WAP including a crab cake wasnt a real crab cake but our only real food complaint. The picture booth in the back was a nice touch.
The vibe was nice. We went at an off time so we missed some of the brunch items and the dinner menu hadn’t begun being served. The vibe was nice but the venue is a little small so even with COVID I was a little uneasy.
I can’t wait to go back and enjoy the full experience.
Don’t come here thinking you’re going to have a nice dinner. The music is so loud you can feel it, the service is incredibly slow - it took 20 minutes to get a drink. The food was nothing I would want again - deviled eggs were over cooked and the eggs had a weird texture, the dough balls were undercooked and the flavor was not good, the chicken sandwich had the aftertaste of fish and the bread it came on fell apart immediately after picking it up. The ribs were decent, Mac and cheese was terrible. Fried pickles were good.
Great service, hostess and server. Second time here and was just as good as the first. Good music. Good happy hour deals.
Even though we got seated 30minutes after our reservation, the food was great and our server was attentive. Definitely coming back
Great experience! The bartender was perfect. We will definitely be back
I did not like dining where they have the to go station set up because when it's busy people are standing around waiting near your table while you are trying to dine. Otherwise I love halfsmoke and will definitely be back.
We did the bottomless brunch here, and it was a great experience! Our server was lovely and very attentive (especially on those refills bc we’re on a 90 min limit). I got the mac n cheese with crispy chicken which was pretty good, but I might try something else next time - the Netflix n Chill was definitely calling my name. Also, the music was bumping which just gave the whole place good vibes.
