    You won't get in w/out a reservation, but you must go if you appreciate whisky (snob or not.) A destination you will always remember.

    We LOVE Jack Rose (almost as much as we love our whisky). For any whisky-lover it is a must-go in DC. We shared about six different one ounce samples, and also had a huge juicy steak, which was amazing. It was a Monday night, so it was not crowded at all, but we've been other nights and it gets a nice group. You can even enjoy cigars with your tasting (which is a great experience if you haven't tried it). Definitely recommend.

    We ordered the “short rib” from the menu, and it was strange that the server kept coming by and saying “your pasta is almost ready”. When it finally arrived, it was not even short rib, it was brisket... the dish tasted fine but I wouldn’t have ordered that cut of meat if it were listed correctly on the menu. More generally, the service was extremely slow, and they took a long time to seat us even though we had a reservation and the table they sat us at was ready.

    To be honest, I am not a fan of sitting that close to a bar while I pay for fine dining. The bartender was overwhelmingly loud as she told stories about whiskeys. Also, our server seemed somewhat disinterested and another gentleman ended up helping us far more often. Our food was tasty but I felt a bit overpriced.

    Cool bar for sure. Food was good. Absolutely no complaints, but probably not a great value for the cost. We had the bone in ribeye and the short ribs. Also had some oysters. Sides were Brussels sprouts and cauliflower gratin. Shared some beignets after. Cocktails and bourbons excellent.

    Food was delicious and service was top notch. Had the scallops and braised short rib pasta. Tried 8 different bourbons and ryes - the selection is almost overwhelming. Perhaps most importantly, got the brown butter cake w/ salted caramel gelato - I could eat that every day for the rest of my life.

We didn’t go for the food, but turned out the food was wonderful as well. This was a perfect place for my bourbon-loving husband’s milestone birthday.

We went on a Sunday night so it was pretty dead but our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the whiskeys and we had a fun time. Highly recommend for a special occasion because it is pricey

    The charcuterie plate contained run of the mill cold cuts. The “crackers and cheese” consisted of broken up bread stick like things with a small dish of a cheese-wis substance. Small dishes of olives, nuts and a few pieces of popcorn. Also, the plate was for four people but only three deviled eggs were included. The main dishes were actually pretty good and all four of us did take the leftovers home. Service was sloooooooow and infrequent. Noise level was CRAZY LOUD. The owners should consider moving the dining area, (currently up against the bar railing) up to the second level. Talking across the table, amongst the four of us, required multiple repeats and clarifications. I did enjoy the vast bourbon selection though, I must say. Would I go back? Honestly, kind of a one and done experience.

    Our server Charles was amazing! The whiskey was out of this word with very knowledgeable staff and very friendly! The food was ok, we only had appetizers so I can’t speak for the main course but the hush puppies were out of this world! Wings were pretty good, but the crispy chicken skins were too salty not really our style but we were trying something new. Will definitely be coming back and asking for Charles!

    This is long, but I hope useful - particularly the DRINK part, if you’re a whiskey taster. FOOD - the biscuits, pork chop and short ribs were great. The fried oysters were juicy, but the cornmeal breading was too heavy and we didn’t finish them. DRINKS - we’re bourbon lovers and love doing tastings. A good way to try before buying a full - and often expensive - bottle. On our second round, the bartender Chris came over with five bottles, including two we’d ordered, but only one of those pre-poured. He suggested we may not like the other wed ordered and told us about the three extras he’s brought with him, then left us to discuss. We chose one of his rec’s and were quite happy. This is IMPORTANT because the one we ordered that he didn’t pre-pour was twice the price of the ones he brought as suggestions. Yes, he have us LESS EXPENSIVE options because he wanted us to like what we were drinking. Chris was not only amiable, but very knowledgeable about the bourbons, distilleries, history, etc. Hence the reason he made the suggestions he did, as he understood pricing vs actual value. SERVICE - this one was rated lower because our actual waitress was not particularly attentive. However, since we’ve been before and know one of the waiters who has been great (thanks, Christian!!) we were able to ask him questions when he stopped by. He also was the one to arrange to have Chris to the table. It saved the night.

    We came here NYE but it was also a joint milestone birthday. I don't remember mentioning those but we arrived to a card on the table, and were given free dessert. We were told to take as long as we needed and the recommendation of hush puppies went down very well! It was a little loud and dark but general ambience and music fabulous. Could have made more of the new year countdown. Will definitely go back if ever in DC again. Whisky selection is incredible.

    I took a close friend out for a birthday dinner. We had a great time. The food was terrific and out waiter, Ryan, really enhanced the experience with his attentiveness to detail and outgoing personality. I would definitely go back. Only one word of warning: The dining room is adjacent to the bar and can be very noisy. So, in between mouthfuls of great food, you'll need to speak loudly.

    Whisk(e)y lovers paradise. They claim to have over 2700 bottles of whiskey on hand at any given time. I started my evening enjoying one of their signature cocktails and then started trying some bourbons I have always wanted to try. What is really impressive about their service is they display the bottle when they serve you your drink. The servers were very helpful and informative. I really enjoyed the experience.
