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.

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.

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...

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.)
