Good food, nice service, I wasn't thrilled about the open door to the men's bathroom while under renovation. I hope that gets fixed soon!
The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The food was great and an excellent value.
The utensils were dirty!!, My salmon burger didn’t have any seasoning!
My birthday brunch was amazing here!
The crab dip was amazing!! The staff was very friendly
Sat in regular seating because it was less crowded but then they filled tables right beside us instead of spreading out tables for safety. Disappointed in their care and precautions for safe inside dining in DC.
Upscale, yet casual, sports bar with good food and a wide selection of drinks.
Easter brunch! Food was great, it was very loud where we were seated but probably fine outside or closer to the back. On a nice day, it’s nice to sit right near the open windows and the lighting is super pretty
I went there early, very quiet! Waiter was very attentive. Great baked feta dish, that churro waffle w/ ice cream, yummy.. Will be back!
The Smash Burger comes highly recommended if you like a little spice on a burger, the Churro Waffle is a must as well, everything was great.
This place was great first time there. The bottomless mimosas deals are amazing..
It was a beautiful day out and this was the perfect place to hang for some good food, drinks and "girl time." It was super busy so the kitchen was a bit backed up. We didn't mind as we were not in a rush. The manager was great and came by to check up on and chat with us often. He always made sure we were taken care of outside of our waiter. The customer service here is always amazing and today, even with a backed up kitchen, was no different. Always love it there.
Do not recommend the sangria, it was essentially juice. Also was disappointed by the food - some of it was burnt. Was excited to come here but unfortunately will not be coming back.
Get the honey bee chicken sandwich and churro waffle for dessert (which is super shareable!).
Overall great! Good food. Good experience.
Food was incredible
Great, safe service. Food was fantastic, I got the Brussels Pizza and it was the best thing I have eaten in a while. We went to watch a basketball game and really enjoyed our time.
Staff weren’t wearing masks at all times and weren’t enforcing patrons to either, people walking around massless.
Very beautiful restaurant with an amazing menu. Would recommend for any occasion.
I’m not sure if things have changed due to the pandemic, but the service was lackluster.
There was one waiter for at least 5-6 tables, we arrived 2 or so hours before the restaurant closed but were told the kitchen was closing in an hour, and were told there was no cocktail menu even though the tables around us were consuming cocktails.
Our food was cold on arrival, and an item we ordered was given to the table next to us. All in all it wasn’t the most enjoyable experience.
An absolute PERFECT brunch experience! Totally exceed my friend and my expectations. I cannot wait to go back!
Good food, great atmosphere, would definitely eat here again
The place was great, the food was great, our waitress was honest and amazing!
Food was wonderful as was ambiance and service. We will be back!
Not a great experience. Went recently, during the pandemic so naturally there aren't many people out, and that meant nothing. Maybe 15 people in the establishment. We weren't greated when we entered I had to speak first. The young woman sat us way in the back and not because of any 6 ft rulings. As we sat we were brung water by a gent who also didnt speak nor acknowledge us in any manner. And for the next 25 minutes no one came to introduce themselves or anything. We left. I don't attribute all poor service to me being black but I am pretty aware of the difference in service toward myself vs others and we were the only black people there and noticeably the only people not being serviced/acknolwedged. 0/10 will not be returning.
The food was okay but not great and the menu was a bit limited. It’s a shame when so many other places are closed right now - they could really use this opportunity to stand out.
Proper 21 is a great place for drinks after work and they also do brunch very well. I had the chicken and biscuits with strawberry berry jam, the combination of sweet and savory worked very on the palette, was excited to see the Proper Burger on the brunch menu as well. Unlimited Mimosa with the choice of a Rosé Mimosa finished with a churro waffle & Football!!!!!!!
*If your a fan of the Patriots Sunday’s here are a MUST
Service was great! Wilde was so good to us. Drink were great and food was OK, nothing to rave about. The environment was nice and clean and we enjoyed ourselves overall.
Loved this place! Service was amazing, social distancing and use of masks was in FULL effect. The brunch menu and specials gave a great variety. I had the homestyle skillet which was good. My friend had the chicken and waffles and they were AMAZING! The churro waffle was everything and more. I wasn't a huge fan of the batter the chicken was fried in but it didn't take away from the taste at all. I will be going back to try out their dinner menu very soon.
First time coming for friends bday! Would def come again!
Amazing food with incredible service! Cannot wait to go back again soon!
Service and food was very good. Bathrooms needed some work. Their appearance is not fitting the restaurant. The music was very loud. We had to talk loud just to hear each other. Not sure if the AC was broken but the restaurant was very hot.
This was a wonderful dinner stop during our mother-daughter road trip vacation. Unique, classy, upscale - just how we like it!
Thank you for a memorable meal!
Great place, waiter was extremely nice. Always made sure we had all of our food and drinks in place.
We all loved our brunch. Fabulous burger and scrumptious chicken. Will def be back. Was also very impressed with the service and the attention to cleaning during such an unsure time.
It was mixed experience. The service was a tad off in that the staff didn’t clean up dirty dishes on the small table which made eating in a cluttered space challenging but the manager and bus staff made it happen when we were overloaded. One of my pet peeves is having to remind wait staff about request and that happened more than I like here. But the food was good!
Excellent service and food!
Loud restaurant with tiny tables. Could not hear my dining companion from less than 3 feet away across the table. Kevin waiter was really great! Kevin was the only highlight. Music started and it only got LOUDER! (no disrespect to live musician who was very good) I was charged $23.45 for the brick chicken MENU PRICE IS $21.45 = Why $2 more? I did not catch that until after the bill was presented to me, but I wanted to get out of there. Crab "dip" was so/so nothing great for $13.99 and NOTHING ON MENU about WHERE crab came from. I assume from mealy, bland taste it came from Asia. My friend's "special" of "steak sammy" sandwich at $18.99 was barely edible. Fortunately, the "drink special" of $6 glass chardonnay held us til we could get out of there. Strange "decorating" with large mirrors propped against walls adding to some ocular confusion and perhaps safety issues.
