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.

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.

Listed as steakhouse yet there’s only one steak on the menu. Good, but not as expected as a visitor to DC.

Took my family there. Food was ok but almost everything else was vastly below par from the doorman needing to scan my DL (not ok with that with all the identify thief going around). Drinks not made well, no coffee, no silverware for cutting steaks, credit card machine not working, it was cold where we were sitting, etc. I would not go back.

Overall, the experience was great, but the service was somewhat lackluster due to a busy environment. The drinks took long to come out albeit the bartenders just left the drinks at the bar for the server to get. The food came out really fast and was amazing. Would recommend this place again; however, maybe not on a Thursday evening.

Thank you for the review. We do apologize. Things can get kind of busy but service should not lack. I have sent your message to our management team to review.

We had reservations for 5:30 PM. We got there around 5:28! There was security at the door who said the restaurant is not open yet because he is waiting for his GM. Ok, cool. We waited, a small line started to form, people came and went. Some came back, others did not. It wasn't until after at least 6:20 when we were finally seated. No one apologized or anything. To make it worse, when we checked in with the lady at the front and I told her my reservation time, she looked at me and repeated "5:30?" as if WE were late checking in for the reservation. I hope she knew that we were outside standing in the rain for almost an hour before we could be seated!! The nerve of her!! This outing was for my son's 19th birthday. Having never been to this restaurant, I did not know the vibe or crowd and thought it would be suitable to bring my parents as well. Although the atmosphere was really nice and everything went well (after we were finally seated), it was not a crowd for my parents.

My boyfriend and I came for a date night and were very interested in trying their unlimited plate options they have on Saturday night. Unfortunately the service was so horrible, we weren't even able to order food. We were seated immediately for our reservation. Upon seating us, the server asked to take our drink order, but we needed a minute to review the drink menu. She never came back after 30+ minutes, and we decided if it took this long to order one round of drinks for two people, how much longer would it take to order potentially multiple dinner options. I saw the server loitering around by the bar on several occasions. There were open tables throughout the restaurant, however a large party was going on at the same time. I don't know if they had a lack of help or just poor staff, either way, unlikely to return. The bathrooms are also very gross.

Service was excellent
Food was very good
Mostly a bar scene with few people eating at tables
Bouncer at back door checking ID’s was a little strange

I can’t say much because when I got there I was informed the kitchen was closed, despite me having an 8:30 reservation for 3. Staff didn’t seem to care and just said “we made a call to close the kitchen.” I understand closing down early if it’s dead but if you have reservations that’s unacceptable, especially when there was no effort made to even contact those with reservations to let them know. I have zero interest in ever going back.

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!
