Great food, Great staff, Great freshly squeezed orange Juice! Just loud as it's a sport club!
Food was great and the restaurant was very clean…I will definitely be back
a little to loud - but food was very good as was service
I just had a terrible experience we spent most of the time just waiting for the food so we only got through eating appetizers they were understaffed or poorly organized
The food was average at best. The service was not very good and the music was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation.
Service was poor, other waiters/waitresses were attentive to our table because they realized. Maybe sitting at the bar is better.
The food and drinks at Proper 21K were incredible. We got BOGO crushers for Happy Hour and the Eggplant Katsu is to die for!! I’ll definitely be going back, there were so many other meals I wanted to try.
Food took longer than expected and was OK, excessively salty
Brunch is always amazing! The new menu was the perfect touch for a Saturday brunch. Paloma was perfect, the french toast with blackberry peach cobbler topping was mind blowing, and the chicken sausage topped everything off!
The food we ordered was excellent; however, the service and ambiance was not so great. The hostess did not seat us at standard tables as requested in our reservation. Instead, we were at bar tops. We told our server that we were there to watch a soccer match but was notified after receiving our food that we would only be able to view the game without audio. Had we been informed of this earlier, we would have found somewhere else to eat and watch the game. We felt that we were deliberately misled since the server mentioned that this was discussed among staff earlier in the evening, prior to our arrival. We asked to speak to the manager who was as unhelpful as could be.
My mom was in town for the weekend so I wanted to take her some place nice for brunch.
Yeah! 0 stars wouldn’t recommend! Pork tacos were BEYOND salty! Drinks weren’t good seemed like something was missing.
Great for Sunday late brunch
The add bonus is the free Parking🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Free flowing brunch was great. The only thing I didn't like was the order of the food. The sweetest it's came out first and the savory dishes were last. I think the reverse order would of made more sense for the taste pallet
Not sure about the food here, I started feeling sick after my good and drink. Also, the service took a long time not the best customer service
Good food and service for a sports bar type restaurant. We had early dinner on a Sunday and is wasn't crowded at all. We sat outside, which was MUCH quieter than inside (so if loud music is a dealbreaker for you, you may want to consider outside as well). The cocktails were all on the sweeter side. Not necessarily bad, just a head's up!
All but one course, the charcuterie plate, were fantastic. The food was all very interesting and tastes fantastic. Service was great as well, and with bottomless mimosas and 9 courses for $34, quite the value. The place was empty though, not hardly want people, but it was due to pandemic.
Great food, great drinks, and great service. I really enjoyed my visit. I’ll be back soon. I had the Proper Burger, which was incredible, and a few of the cocktails (I highly recommend Somewhere on a Peach). I’ll be back for sure.
Love this place, exceptional service
The food was incredibly good. The staff were very friendly. Honestly, this place is great.
Had a coworker’s gathering here. Enjoyed the patio. The orange crushes were enjoyed by the party. The burger was good but the bulgogi tacos were subpar/no flavor.
This was a last minute brunch planned. Loved the ambiance and we had great service. I would return to explore the main menu. I would note, however, that the brunch includes 20% gratuity so be careful that you're not tipping twice.
The concept is great. However, the execution is lacking. With the exception of the potatoes and quiche, the food was not fresh. We could tell the food items had been sitting out for a while. The drinks are okay. The service was mediocre. Our server was lukewarm and my table was filled with empty/partial emptied plates.
Flow brunch is a nice idea but the meal was rushed and the tables too small.
Food was amazing! The ambiance was chic as ever. Will definitely go back.
Went to their tasting brunch which might have been the worst thing I’ve ever experienced. They first served us potatoes and a small bread basket. That’s all we had for about 15-20 mins. The taste was fine, no butter or jam for the bread basket. Next came a very small breakfast charcuterie that consisted on 2 strips of bacon broken in half, o few noblest of sausage some grapes and a few slices of cheese. This was to serve 3 people who’ve only had potatoes. Then can funfetti pancakes. These were cold silver dollar size pancakes. At some point we were waiting for a protein, then came the crustless quiche. This was inedible. It was so dense and the flavor palette was off. We all took 1 bite and asked to have everything removed from the table. Finally the last course was bacon Mac snd Cheese. This was the only thing served hot. It wasn’t bad. At this point we began looking for a place to eat so we got our check and left. Biggest waste of $160
Was cute but not so much of the “experience “ as advertised. More of a bottomless brunch of specific platters. Great for the price.
The service was spectacular. Hannah was attentive and friendly. They lifted an umbrella when it got sunny outside and gave us a free tequila shot. The mimosas were delicious. But the food was mediocre. Lots of carbs to fill you up, but not up to DC restaurant standards.
A great value for phenomenal food! Ask for Hannah, she was very attentive and friendly.
Great brunch set up and Instagrammable space.
Very nice place I loved the location. The outside seating was great.
There are much better brunch options in DC. The menu says that the chef is going to take you on a culinary journey, unfortunately it's an extremely disappointing journey. The menu online is not the same menu that they serve. The Funfetti pancakes were flat as if the baking powder was expired. The pineapple mimosa was sour and tasted as if the pineapple juice had expired. The tuna tartare didn't have enough lime flavor, it was pretty bland (and looked like it had sat a while). However, the chicken and waffle friend rice was a complete and total miss. It tasted like maple syrup and was not a good combination, we sent it back. The servers were all really nice, and when we complained about the food we did receive a 50% discount. I will probably never come back.
The food was mediocre. Prob will not return.
The service was great,I had a chicken bacon ranch rice bowl And my wife had the sirloin steak. Both dishes will cook well and tasted delicious
One of my good friends and I wanted to go out for dinner one Friday after work. We had walked passed Proper 21K a few times and always talked about how one day we would eat there. This place is beautiful and quite cozy. We had seating options and decided to eat outside. The patio area was awesome as well. The food and drinks were amazingly delicious and we definitely plan to go back really soon. Our waiter was attentive to our needs, super nice and stayed on top of things. She made suggestions regarding the menu and super professional. This place definitely Rocks!!!
The burger here is delicious. The indoor dining is very loud music, so if you want to have conversation, sit on the outdoor patio.
Nothing special and the kitchen couldn’t get the order correct. One appetizer arrived with dinner, and the other appetizer was never brought out
My girlfriend and I booked the unlimited taco experience for taco Tuesday and when we got there we were informed that it only included beef and chicken tacos. The problem was I am a pescatarian so we couldn’t do the taco experience and they gave us no alternatives so we looked on the menu for something else to eat we ordered the pokey nachos they were very good. And we ordered a pitcher of strawberry lemonade sangria they ended up giving us a picture of lemonade filled with ice and we complained about it so she went ahead and refilled our pitcher for free which was very nice. When we got to the entrées I decided to order the crabcake sandwich because how could you mess up a crabcake sandwich, at this point we were at the restaurant for about two hours and it took so long for the waitress to come back and get our order after the nachos. They had a half off bottled wine special because it was a wet a Tuesday so we decided to order the rose she brought the rose over and then I asked her if it was 50% off she said “oh no we haven’t changed our menu but I’ll give it to you” which was nice. Our food came and I ate it but the next day I was sick all day. Definitely won’t be coming back. I typed this through voice text so apologies for any misspelled words.
Warning! They do not honor ANY of the advertised drink specials for Marg Monday or happy hour even though they have it printed on their in house menu as well. Food was just okay, service was great.
