Friends and I got together for brunch and they tempted up with bottomless drinks. These are top shelf drinks too, not just the standard mimosa and Bloody Mary and delicious.
The food was all you can eat and small portions which was great for sampling. We had more than enough to fill us up and every dish was great. It’s a pretty large selection of brunch food so nobody could go hungry.
Amanda was our waitress - excellent and fun.
The reservation was made for brunch. We were sat for brunch and handed brunch menus, then ignored by the wait staff for 10 minutes. The wait staff finally came to our table and said the kitchen was closed and only drinks were being served. They offered us pickles and olives instead of actual food. I will never be returning.
Lack of staff / slow service
Great atmosphere, great service!
I came here for happy hour prior to the theater. It was a nice evening so I opted for the patio. Unfortunately, despite the open air dining it was really loud, and they were playing loud, awful music--some sort of rock with a thumping beat that spoiled the entire atmosphere. My waitress was very good but it took a looooong time for my food to come out and when it arrived it was barely warm. It ended up taking over an hour and half for just 2 cocktails and 2 appetizers and I was disappointed there was no time for dessert. Food was good, large portions, and happy hour pricing was great.
Sad that we didn’t discover it sooner. Eager to go back again. Worried about the change in ownership comin up.
Ended up being more than pleasantly surprised at how incredible everyone’s dishes turned out- this place is definitely a hidden gem.
We went for Mother's Day brunch. It's a cute, little place in a hotel lobby. The food selection was limited and the restaurant was really, really chilly. The menu options, though limited, were tasty. Each dish we had came with an abundant supply of breakfast potatoes, so many that we swore off potatoes for the rest of the spring. We also had to sit at a high-top right next to the bar. This would be okay for a Thursday evening happy hour, but for Mother's Day it was kind of lacking. There was an empty dining room sitting off to the side that we should have been seated at.
Food was okay, very limited menu choices. But the food was average in our opinion. Drinks were very small and overly priced. When a drink is $17 and the size of a shot I have a problem with it. Noise level was extremely loud, we had to almost yell to hear the conversations with people at our table Bill for 2 people was $102. We found it rude when we paid in cash with $150 and rather than bringing us back our change when we paid she asked you dont want any change correct,before seeing the look on my face and asking how much change we wanted back. I then felt put on the spot and overtopped her nearly 30%, which the service was not that great. Overall average
A hotel restaurant that is essentially a loud bar. Would have rated it poorly if it were not for the fantastic entrees. We had the rock fish and lobster Tagliatelle and both were really good. Skip the appetizers and prepare for a poorly stocked wine list, if you can call it that. Never mind the small selection if they offered decent bottles or glasses of wine. I’ll go back for the food though.
We had a lovely dinner at Radiator, the food was delicious, the cocktails very good, and the ice cream sundae for dessert was a perfect ending. It was a quiet and romantic table, good place for date night or a special birthday celebration.
This was a very nice restaurant...tucked away and not crowded. the service was great, everyone very attentive and friendly. The food was ok, nothing spectacular.
I came here for Easter brunch with my family, and after reading reviews was excited to try this place out.
I was kind of surprised to find out how hotel-ey the restaurant space felt. The brunch area was in a hotel conference space, and you had to walk through the lobby to get there. We were seated in an area that was off to the side of the main bar area (which seemed to have a nicer atmosphere) and the decor seemed cheap.
The food was pretty good. Doughnuts were dense and would recommend to avoid.
This place would be really good in a city where exceptional restaurants didn’t abound, and also somewhere where it wasn’t common for hotels to have quality restaurants attached. There are so many other, better places in DC to eat- I’ll look somewhere else next time.
Easter brunch - lacking overall. Made to order eggs were good but the
Easter brunch excellent!
Excellent food, drinks and place! I would like to come back! And Recomend it to friends!!
I enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere food selection was minimal and the service was unpredictable the waiter explained to me that the reason she wasn't attentive was that she was helping out in the kitchen cleaning very unprofessional will go back to try their happy hour
10/10 would recommend!
The restaurant must be fairly new and we stumbled on it by accident on Open Table. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal. The only misstep was the restaurant setting up a beanbag toss game in the middle of the dining patio, but when we mentioned it after some children began playing with it, the server was quick to move it away.
I heard about Radiator because of their ice cream sundae dessert but the appetizers and entrees are also excellent.
Excellent service. The fish tacos were too salty. The rest of the food was excellent.
This was great all around; I'm happy to become a regular.
Loved this place— perfect for a friends birthday brunch. The drinks were perfectly strong and not watered down like other places and the food was unlike anything we’ve had before. Our waitress was so fun we wanted her to join us for the rest our birthday plans, she even gave our table a birthday plate of scones with a candle. Seriously what a great find, will def be back soon
Very nice vibe. Was cozy. Great music and excellent service.
Fabulous food, nice ambiance and incredible service.
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Radiator on Saturday, 3/2. The pre-dinner cocktail was both beautiful and delicious. We enjoyed the baby gem salad as a starter and had the Impossible meatball bucatini dish and the Rad burger with truffle fries. Both entrees were delicious! Billy, our server, did a fantastic job explaining the menu and being attentive to our table throughout the meal.
Innovative food at reasonable prices. Server was very easygoing and knowledgeable. We had some yummy disco fries and this crazy squash carbonara. Way better than pasta could ever do. And thank you for smartly featuring so many Pennsylvania beers.
One of the best brunches in the city without a doubt. My server, Ayla, was very helpful and explained everything there was to know about the menu and the food itself. $40 all you can eat and drink? Will definitely be coming back again.
Fun little neighborhood spot
We went for Sunday brunch and had a great time! There was a group of 8 of us doing the bottomless (food and drinks) and our waitress was very attentive. All of the food was delicious, the drinks we had were great. I loved that the bottomless drinks included mimosas (with fresh OJ), bloody Mary’s, orange crushes, and gin rickies. I would definitely go back!
Had dinner here before seeing a play at the Studio Theatre, which is close by. Nothing spectacular, but pasta with lobster and a burger were both good, and they got us in and out pretty quickly.
Great waiter and delicious food at affordable happy hour prices! We will definitely be back
Great little restaurant and bar tucked away off of 14th Street. They had a great happy hour that made for the perfect post-work Galentine's day get together. Would definitely want to come back for brunch or dinner since the snacks we had were excellent. Try the cosmic tater tots or the croquetas!
We received friendly service that was attentive, but not interfering. The 24 hr. Braised Short Ribs were excellent. We enjoyed the Kale Salad and Gem Salad. We recommend this restaurant for pre-theater dinner.
I loved Radiator. Mary was our server and she was MAGNIFICENT. I forgot my phone and she ran out to bring it. Sometimes the extra mile that people like Mary show make a good place amazing. The bonfire outside and lamb tacos were yum as we're the fries.
We were very pleased with Radiator. I typically don't expect much from restaurants in or associated with hotels ("the hotel restaurant.") Radiator was an exception. Welcoming atmosphere, enthusiastic staff, eclectic drink menu. Between the two of us we sampled most of the cocktails- great flavor combinations and we had to try them all. Our server guided us through the menu with accurate descriptions of what "small" and "large" plates were. Really enjoyed the potato gnocchi. The build your own sundae is a great idea. I want to return when the weather is warmer to try the outdoor seating.
Great time here. Very friendly service by Amy and Andy and they went the extra mile to make my wife’s birthday special, particularly with the amazing complimentary dessert! The butternut squash ravioli and vegan meatballs were spectacular! Fun atmosphere. The only recommendation would be to either enhance or lessen the price of the $18 cheese plate - kind of Costco-y cubed cheese and your money is better spent on the many other delicious entrees and cocktails. A perfect place to go before Studio theater too, or for drinks after. We did both!
Very accommodating waitstaff. I had had unexpected dental work and they let me have an item off the allowed list. I was surprised at the restrictions on menu items extending beyond those listed on the Travelzoo certificate. It said anything $18 or less, the waitstaff said no entrees or no mains, I don't recall which were off limits. The certificate included two cocktails, and both I had were excellent (helped with the tooth pain, too). This is a cozy chic place near enough to Studio Theater for convenience, just DON'T drive. There is NO parking anywhere near.
Radiator’s food and drinks were amazing. Great wait staff and fun atmosphere
Three of us were there near the end of Happy hour so we took advantage of the discount. Food was scrumptious. ..an order of gnocchi and two butternut squash ravioli and a shared salad. We sat in the bar, which was quite active and seemed like a popular meeting place. Mike, our server was accommodating and at the same time allowed for a slower pace, since we spent a lot of time talking. Very much appreciated!
