Cute ambiance and good service with delicious food. Real, healthy portions as opposed to oversized portions but just the right amount to leave satisfied
cocktails, desserts, and service were awesome!! will certainly visit again to sit at the bar and eat a cookie!
the rest of the food was tasty but didn't blow me away
This place has everything you need for great dining experience. It is a cozy and friendly place. The food is superb. Great service with very attentive staff. Five stars all around. Only negative is it can be a bit noisy, but this is what you expect when the restaurant is completely full.
This place is great for brunch and the manager is very friendly! :) It is a clean, sunny, and pleasant restaurant and neighborhood hangout with good service. Look forward to doing brunch here again.
Dined here, on recommendation from a friend, with a group of five girls. We were treated like royalty, and every one who worked there was super friendly and knowledgeable, especially our waiter Mike. The food was outstanding. I had the salmon and the brussel sprouts, which were amazing. We tried all of the desserts. The beignets were to die for! The space itself is stunning: open and modern with some rustic/industrial nods. Will definitely be back.
Good brunch place nice atmosphere small but interesting selection
The food was excellent and the cocktails were tasty. This place can get a little pricey so brace yourself.
Amazing food and drinks and an incredible menu
Poor service and the restaurant was mostly empty. Entree was very small. Beautiful venue, but I don't plan on coming back due to service. I don't imagine this place will last long.
Decided to try Prather’s out for brunch. Heard it was good. Perused the menu online, food and drinks sounded delicious so off we went. I had the steak & eggs with fingerling potatoes while my daughter had the duck hash. Both were excellent. Had a couple of the different drink offerings. I had the Bittersweet while my daughter had a Harvey Wallbanger (a blast from the past circa the 70’s). Both were deliciously made with fresh squeezed juices. Definitely going back again and would recommend it for brunch.
Love this place so much. Everything is perfectly executed. Very intentional. Love it!!
The food was delicious - everyone in our group got different dishes and all loved what they ordered. Also, the staff were very accommodating. I made the reservation for 10 people, but only 4 showed up on time. The staff broke apart the table and dealt with it - AND when 2 additional people showed up 30 minutes later, the staff again figured out how to get them seats (the original table had been taken). Very professional, nice atmosphere, and above all - the food was delicious.
Was in DC for a week attending a convention. Ended up eating at Prather's three times. Each meal was delicious. Reasonable portion sizes, fresh ingredients, creative mixtures. Parsnip and pear soup was superb. Recommend highly.
Amazing food and service!
One of the Best DC restaurant experiences I’ve had in a while! And I eat out multiple times a week.
Not sure why the food took forever from one course to another when the restaurant wasn’t full- no flavor. Just bland. Great service tho. Very disappointing.
We had a great meal, like the small plate format, let us taste a bunch of different dishes
I heard about Prather's thru an online chat. We were in the area to go to a hockey game and it's close by and easier to get a reservation than many places around the Capital One Arena so decided to give Prather's a try. Good grief was it delicious. And the big cookie in the cast iron pan for dessert - wow. We'll be back.
Wonderful spot for lunch! Absolutely loved our Friday lunch at Prather's. The cocktails were just yummy, the food tasty and the atmosphere just great.
The salmon was over cooked and the pappardelle ragu was tasteless. The staff was nice and helpful.
We loved Prather’s on the Alley! This is s new DC favorite and when we are in town we will be back. The service was impeccable and the food creative and exceeded our expectations! The bar crowd was lively but separate from our dining area so the noise level was moderate. Everything we ordered was top notch!
Rarely does a new restaurant (open less than one season) combine the perfect trifecta of spot-on service, inventive mixology, and fine food. Prather's on the Alley hits all three. Aside from the hostess seeming perplexed about where to hang up coats on a cold night, there was nothing about this restaurant that does not demonstrate what it means to earn its role as a repeat destination for its customers. Clearly, Prather's plans to compete with the best.
The food was awesome but the service was lousy. Maybe the server was having a rough night but she tried to rush us through our meal which was unnecessary. Every five minute she was trying to pull our plates away and when we asked to see the desert menu she instead dropped the check.
Good spot but dining area loud like so many places these days. Eating at bar much better.
Amazing food. But as always—a pushy waiter ruins the evening. Ran out of there as fast as possible because we couldn’t have him asking us if we wanted another drink or another dessert. He was clearly more concerned with the amount of our tab than our experience. Spent an inordinate amount of time in the beginning of the meal explaining how we should order—sometimes helpful but so so annoying and condescending in this case. He made a face when I explained that we wanted to try a few things—a few pastas and an entree which was more than enough food for my boyfriend and I. Other than the server, the hosts were very courteous and accommodating, the bussers always filled our water glasses and cleared plates promptly and a manager was always at hand. Again, the food was absolutely fantastic but the service will make me think twice before bringing larger groups to this restaurant.
Food was awesome (as always)! Thanks for a great time.
It was great!
Nice place. The food was fresh but flavors and concept were a bit missed match. The service was excellent!
Food, service and atmosphere were amazing...as were the super carefully crafted and perfect cocktails! The Harvey Wallbanger and Oaxaca Colada were delicious. My smoked salmon dish was delectable and I tasted my wife’s steak and eggs and it was delicious and a perfectly cooked medium rare. We will definitely be returning in the very neat future.
Food was a little salty but overall good. Waiter was rude.
I thought my meal was delicious. I had tagliatelle with rabbit. My concern is that the menu is limited, as a result, one should view the menu before dining. I loved it
Loved their brunch and they were very accommodating for my food allergies. Friends of mine have also recommended this spot for happy hour/dinner.
First time to this restaurant and chose it from reviews online. Great neighborhood spot, friendly staff and cool ambiance. We started with the hummus which was great and then moved onto the chicken dish and bff got the gnocchi- all was fantastic. Not a huge menu but that’s fine with me when you do everything well. Would go back again for sure.
Great service. Fun drinks. Delicious food. Try the muscle toast! Fish cooked to perfection. We’lol be back!
Menu was small, over priced. Smoked salmon app was not good, very bland. Tomato soup was ok. Steak was good.
Fantastic bistro-style restaurant. Modern and clean atmosphere without feeling pretentious. REALLY good food. I'll be going back.
Bad acoustics made worse by blasting music over the high noise level.
It felt like Prather's is still getting its act together. Things just seemed to take awhile, included drinks at the bar as well as food. Had to send the burger back, a medium rare burger came out well done. Food was good and we'll be back but with the hopes that the kinks of a new spot get worked on.
This was our first time here. We will definitely go back. Great food and atmosphere.
Great bar, decor, and delicious food. The cocktails are pieces of art and the servers were perfect. I will definitely return for another wonderful experience at Prather's.
