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 overall service experience at the table was good and the food was delicious. However, when we arrived, there was an altercation on the staircase with a group of people coming down from the rooftop. It made for an unpleasant experience and none of the employees who were near the door addressed it or said anything until what looked like another altercation happened about 20 mins later on the same staircase. It’s unclear what the host said, but it was not a very stern approach to keeping peace in a restaurant. Also getting a pat-down at the front entrance was not exactly the type of vibe you want going into a restaurant for food and drinks.

    The restaurant charges a 20% service fee, for no service. We never receive a designated waiter. We basically order everything ourselves electronically through our cell phones.

    The food was good and so were the drinks. Went with some friends to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. Just keep in mind that a 20% service fee is added to your tab. We were only a part of 4 so I was surprised to see the service fee and then they give you an option to tip more if you want to. I thought the service fee was excessive.

    This urban venue was a great place to dine after a show at the Lincoln Theatre. While not a fancy dining spot, with great ambiance, the food was delicious and the price reasonable. We ate off of the happy hour menu, and the presentation favored Tapas, with small plates which were wonderful to share with a partner. We hadn't planned to eat my birthday dinner at Lost Society, but I am glad I did!

    Excellent dining experience. Poor sound system. They'll have to install a better sound system with better bass response with the music they play. This seems to be a theme in the District though: nice places with shabby sound.

    Dined here for brunch this past Sunday, February 20th. I really had high hopes; however, I was very disappointed. The Sunday brunch is 'buffet only' with no options for a la carte. I understood that going in; hence, I really expected the buffet to be amazing. Not close. With the exception of the french toast and bacon, everything on the buffet tasted like it was prepared the day before and barely warmed up. Additionally, it would appear as though the minimum amount of food per chafing dish is brought out and I felt like I was getting the tail end of what was left during the two times I visited the buffet. I went up for a third visit hoping to finally get a refresh and the buffet was being broken down at 3:30 pm. The brunch was not supposed to end until 4:00 pm. The bottomless mimosas were a bit laughable as they prefill the champagne in the juice carafes which tasted more like juice than a respectable mimosa. If you're hungover and need to eat indiscriminately, this is your place. Unfortunately, I couldn't recommend nor would I return for Sunday brunch. Perhaps a better experience can be had on a regular day.

    My husband and I were there for a buffet, all-you-can-eat brunch. The problem is that the web site did not indicate that was the deal for a reservation at noon on Sunday. That said, the buffet brunch was very good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Other diners seemed to be having a great time. This place would be a great place to meet friends and treat yourself to lots and lots of yummy, non-diet-friendly food, possibly with mimosas.

    This is really a happy hour/ hangout spot than a sit down restaurant. You order your own food on the app and it is brought to you. The rooftop is the draw I think. Our server was great, I would skip the cocktails and just order your specific favorite drink. The fish tacos were yummy. Knowing more about it, I would def hang out again

    Even though we made reservation for their Happy Hour, we were made to stand in a line that wrapped around the corner with patrons who only intended to go to the upper level club and not the dining level. The security was extremely rude and wait time for service was extremely long. Although the hostess and server were attentive, the overall experience was impacted by how long it takes to enter and be seated even though they have “availability” via reservation. We waited over 20 mins.

    Ambience was great, however the service was by far the worst I’ve experienced from Lost Society. I had to go to the bar five (5) times to request the waitress take our order, correct the order and get drinks. I won’t be returning to lost society for a while based off tonight’s service.
