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.

Our service was spectacular! We were celebrating my fiancé’s promotion and the greeted us with complimentary sparkling wine glasses. Also, the food was delicious. The steak was so juicy that I seemed like it melted in my mouth. Fantastic!! We will definitely be back!

I booked this reservation on OpenTable 45 minutes before we expected to arrive. 2 minutes before we were meant to sit down, Lost Society called me to CANCEL our reservation for 7. They said they did not have to room for us and we wouldn't be able to come. I pushed and they said they could accommodate in 1 hour. (Isn't this the point of making a reservation?!?) We arrived anyway because we were almost there and they barely cared, almost didn't apologize but could tell this was inexcusable. We ended up waiting more than an hour while seeing several large tables sit empty for almost our entire wait. They ended up comping us one round of drinks at the bar and 30% off our meal. The service at the table was sub-par and we didn't understand because the restaurant was not that busy.

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere on a Saturday night. Not sure it's the best place for an early date - it's a little loud. Each course was a bit rushed and drinks not rushed enough. Would have liked it if there was a little space between the salad course and the entree and if dinner drinks had arrived before the entree as well. Flavors were all fantastic!

Great food. Got in and out quickly so we could be on time for a show two blocks away at the Lincoln Theater.

Food, service, ambiance- outstanding! Music a little too hip hop but not overbearing. Will add Lost Society to our “go to” list.

We met up with friends and had a great experience. The bartender and our server were highly engaged and provided recommendations without being too forward. We shared apps and entrees. Oysters were fantastic as were the Brussels sprouts. For dinner the salmon was the hit.

I have never been disappointed at Lost Society. This was my birthday dinner and they did not disappoint and even gave me a bottle of wine with dinner. Superb....

I think it's probably great as a bar. The food was perfectly fine -- not exceptional, but fine. We needed to send one dish back to be reheated. The service was friendly but largely absent -- and the restaurant was nearly empty. Too much competition in the area for lackluster service and food.

Had a great meal, not inexpensive but good value for money and reasonable bottles. Great ambiance and was able to skip the long line to get to the upstairs bar.

The service was so bad the manager comped our meal. However, the food and ambiance was very nice.

Every time I eat here, I always get the Cajun filet mignon. It’s delicious and is always cooked to a perfect medium rare. Also, I don’t see this particular item on the menu at many other restaurants. Once, I did see it at another restaurant and was very excited. What a disappointment! The other restaurant simply put “Cajun seasonings” on the top of the filet. That is not how it’s done here. At Lost Society, the Cajun flavor is throughout the meat and adds flavor, as well as (not too much) heat.

This time, I decided to try the lamb chops because they looked delicious at a nearby table. There were at least 6 lamb chops in the serving and they were delicious. I’m not sure how they were seasoned, but there was a sweetness to them. I’m not a big fan of “sweet”, but I thought these were great and I would order them again. My only regret is that “medium rare” was not an option. However, the chops were moist and very tasty.

The optional sides are all good, but the mac n’ cheese is fantastic. The sides are meant to be shared, but I could eat this all by myself.

For dessert, the bread pudding is a must have. Lost Society is one of the few area restaurants that does this dessert very well.

The Happy Hour specials are great. Many of the drink and “small plate” menu items are half price.

Lost Society is one of those standards that may be starting to decline in quality because of a "people will come anyway" attitude. The food was okay, but this visit, the issue was service. Our server was either new or not mentally present for the day...

Menu in restaurant doesn't match menu on open table. Also no bottomless brunch drinks

Lost Society is on a regular rotation for us ... typically a "date night" without the daughter. The restaurant is simply great: great atmosphere, great food, and attentive staff. The only criticism that I would have is the wine list: it's lacking ... OK, if you're a wino, t's actually kind'a crappy. Nothing more than about $40 and acceptable wine but if you're spending $50 on a dry-aged steak do you really want to eat it with a supermarket wine? Got your own wine ... perfect ...Lost Society accepts BYOWine and charges a $25 corkage. Good excuses open-up a grand cru class Bordeaux from your own cellar. (If you're a mixed drink person ... you'll be happy at Lost Society: they get creative.)

Arrived and headed upstairs. We had a reservation and was seated quickly. The brought over chips and took our drink orders. The wedge salad was great (love the little slabs of bacon in it!!). I had the fork and knife burger sans a bun & it was delish. A colleague raved about their mussels and side of sweet corn.

It was a little loud and Infoudn myself leaning in to her the conversation at our table of three. Our waitress was fabulous and super attentive.

All in All - solid food and trendy decor made for a good dinner

Great Steak options. I had the wagyu skirt steak, and it was amazing--served with the best chimichurri sauce. They don't serve anything above medium rare, which I love. Everyone was a big fan of the Brussel Sprouts appetizer. Service was attentive. They do take a limited amount of checks, but that is pretty standard these days but makes it a little more difficult for a bigger group. Affordable wine selection. I wouldn't recommend the BLT (Unless you are strict paleo) because they serve it with parsley, a thick slab of Canadian style bacon and no bread. My friends enjoyed their salads.

The menu has changed since my last visit, but the food and the service continue to be great. Most importantly, my favorite items are still available: the Cajun filet Mignon, the mac n' cheese, and the bread pudding.

I highly recommend this place.

Absolutely amazing food!!! The dry aged ribeyes was tender and flavorful. The gnocchi was out of this world as well as the house made ricotta.

The ambiance was cool but the food was overrated. It was average for the price.
