Perched a top the intersection of 14th and U Streets, Lost Society offers food, drink, and a killer view from its roof deck. The kitchen, run by Executive Chef Joseph Evans, serves up dishes that do justice to the restaurant's qualification as a 'boutique steakhouse.' Steak selections, in addition to other meat, fish, and vegetarian entrée options, render Lost Society an excellent destination for even the pickiest eaters. The bars (there are four) feature wine, beer, and cocktail options that complement a meal, a night on the town, or both.

The restaurant wouldn’t let us in because my friend was wearing sandals. It was 90 degrees outside.

I was really looking forward to enjoying the restaurant and booked a reservation on open table for a going-away group dinner weeks in advance. A restaurant rep called me the night of the event to inform me that the restaurant was not going to open and that the rooftop bar was only available- first come, first serve. We had to deny the option as the group was large, there were multiple infants/children & a rooftop bar was not a suitable atmosphere, so I had to re-coordinate another option with all guests last minute. I gave an average review as the interior photos and menu options were promising- we just didn’t get a chance to experience them first-hand.

Went with my family. Great atmosphere and the staff were really attentive. On a Friday they have a 3 for $20 deal on some plates.l, which was good value. Food was good quality and they had a great key lime pie!

Went here for dinner with a friend and couldn't help to be disapointed. It is a very strange place with 2 big screeens in the bar showing sport - so not the relaxed atmosphere we thought it was going to be. Based on the description of the place we thought it was going to be more like fine dining but it was nothing like that. Service was awful - no attention to details and when we were half way through our starter they already turned up with over main. However when we got to the dessert we waited for ages. We ordered a bottle of red with the meal which they ended up not having but when we got the bill both the wine we didn't get and the one we got were on the bill. Food was OK but nothing special - so would not come back here.

Just a heads up, the menu listed on this website for this restaurant is completely wrong. Went there because it was billed on open table as a place for steak. It is not. The menu looked good, but it's most definitely not a steak place. We didn't stay for dinner because it wasn't what we wanted so I can't actually comment on the food. The wine was good and the place had a cool vibe. Definitely someplace I might go back to for cocktails and small plates.

Loved the food. Server forgot to enter our apps. Received main course first. No big deal. Apps were a great compliment to our meals. The kitchen closed at 9:00. Our reservation for six was for eight. We all felt a bit pushed out.
We asked to bring a birthday cake. The restaurant adds a $25 charge. We left the cake home. The birthday boy left without a birthday dessert with the group.

Went for dinner, seemed like more of a club than a restaurant. Most of the place was empty, which was a little strange. Food was pretty good, although I didn't like the radish on my avocado toast.

Don't bother... The drinks and food were terrible! Margarita was a premade mix and they had the nerve to put it in a tall glass to appear as if there was more liquor! I asked for them to remake it but this time use a short (rocks) glass... The bartender took the original drink and just poured into the new glass, watched it with my own eyes. Calamari was soggy with grease... The ceasar salad has onions in it... ONIONS... Who wud have known that since it was missing from menu as a list of ingredients! Terrible, if I kud give it zero stars I wud!

This is NOT the same restaurant it was 6 months ago. The menu is totally different and instead of fine dining steaks, it’s sandwiches and bar food. Totally not worth $100 for two. The server was surly, refusing to give us a booth even though there were literally 4 diners including our party of two. We don’t eat out often so this was special for us but a COMPLETE disappointment. Go to Del Frisco if you want a nice steakhouse experience and skip this joint.

We had read great reviews on Lost Society and we wanted to give it a go for our best friends Bachelorette night. We were very much looking forward to a great night with great food and dance but unfortunately it didn't meet those expectations.
Our night started off with our waitress who was very lovely and took great care of us through out the night - the first thing she mentioned to us was "do not have the fried rice - everything else is good".
That puts a bad taste in the guest mouth (no pun intended) - the food that we did order, which was a bunch of appetizers and a couple entrees. Nothing was outstanding, but nothing was terrible. The food is very average. Service was great the wait staff and bar keep were extremely attentive to us. Unfortunately I felt that was the only good thing about the place.

Limited menu. However, my food selection was good. Filet Mignon was tender to cut with a butter knife. Crispy Brussels Sprouts were delicious. Key lime pie was good.
The bathrooms are unisex and were disgusting. The bathroom should be cleaned throughout the evening. The second floor bar was lively but had a young crowd. I will not rerun due to limited menu items and cleanliness of the bathroom.

Food is great. Zara greeted us as we walked in, she is very nice and polite. I worked with Beth, who was professional and had great recommendations. Tiffany the General Manager is ALWAYS genuine and always checks in to see how everything is. This place has an awesome roof space as well. Definitely a must try on 14th and U!

Ordered the BBQ shrimp as an appetizer. For $15 I expected more than 4 shrimp. The bbq was more of a soy sauce concoction. My significant other’s steak was ordered medium and it came out more on the rare to med-rare side. Drinks were rung up wrong so I had I not double checked I would have been paying for a higher end bourbon than I was actually drinking.

Server was very nice and polite. Helped us with finding some other bars to go to after dinner. Ambiance was nice though and they do have a rooftop deck with a bar that seemed to be a hit.

Was recommended lost society by a friend and was disappointed. Thought it would have a relatively nice place to dine but was more akin to a sports bar. Very noisy and boisterous. Ordered the wings to start and I have to admit they were the strangest hot wings I’ve had and came straight from the microwave.

Fast, efficient and attentive service! Delicious food and drinks. Things started off loud as a group of ladies enjoyed Happy Hour very loudly but things quieted down as soon as they left. A nice, small, intimate restaurant with great views of 14th & U street to watch DC life. We had the Brussels Sprouts, fries and beef empanadas for appetizers - all were great. The sprouts were a big portion so my friend saved some to go with his ribeye steak. I had the Blue cheese & Bacon filet mignon - both steaks were delicious; cooked perfectly. The service was great - attentive but not hovering. My friend & I sat there for a looong time talking and the staff were kind enough to patiently wait for us to finish, without hinting that we were their last table and they were waiting for us. I appreciated that - not being rushed out or hovered over until we got the hint. Great food, great service - we'll definitely be back!
