Normally service is very good, but waited 45 for our reservation and waitress was MIA most of night. Probably would have ordered more if she had bothered to visit our table more than two times. Could have been a diner.

We went for brunch because we couldn’t get a weekend nighttime reservation. It didn’t matter. The food and service were amazing. Love their Pisco drinks.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in D.C. Friends have been raving about Rasika for years, and this was our first time trying it. Amazing food and great service. Our very high expectations were definitely met.
