vipOpenTable Diner (Washington DC)
2.0  Dined on July 22, 2017

Menu was sub par and didn't reflect the menu on open table. Therefore we were very disappointed in the options listed. Everything was pretty basic. Service for bottomless drinks were slow. We asked for a side of bacon and we were told they couldn't accommodate this request.. which was odd. But the server came back and said they could after all.

They were under construction and we had an option of about 3 things,all of which I could make at home (sandwiches) so it felt quite overpriced for sandwiches.

This was a great place to entertain out-of-town friends for brunch. It was my first exposure to the restaurant POLICY; slightly ironic given that I work in policy. I'll come back again!

This place is way too loud. Food was good, but if you plan on having even the slightest conversation, avoid Policy.

Brunch was good! We got the bagel sandwich and the Churrasco & Eggs. The only copmlaint is that the place was very loud, and Open table would only let us reserve high tops, though there were many regular tables around. Otherwise, good food!

The food tasted so good and the champagne kept on coming. The service is really good and the servers are very attentive. Definitely going again.

It was too loud and you had this table talking and screaming the hold time.

The new look and redesigned menu is a far stretch from what Policy was once known for. My guests and myself were all blown away by the flavors and presentation. Good job Policy!

The arepas and French toast were great, the servic was slow even though it was quiet in a Sunday morning. Located in the heart of 14th street.
