The service at RPM was fantastic - Najeen was so knowledgeable and accommodating with us, letting me taste various types of wine and describing various ingredients we weren't familiar with. The food was incredibly tasting, and the portions were perfect. The ambiance was very sleek and swanky and it made for a lovely night!

The entire staff was very friendly. Our server made great recommendations and was attentive without being obtrusive. I had my son who is 8months old with me and everyone came by and said hi to him which was great! I will definitely come back

Let me just start my saying that our waiter Tyler, was outstanding. We felt as if he was a friend we had always known. What. Incredible. Service. For example two hours from asking, what we were celebrating -he remembered and brought us a candle lit dessert plate. The food was heaven for any foodie, seriously everything melted in your mouth. Outstanding food and such an incredible experience overall. We can not wait to come back! Thank you for making our Anniversary a memorable one that we will never forget!

I have been here several times and enjoyed it. A group of us came here upon my recommendation and I was disappointed. The server was not as attentive as others have been. I do not believe there were any specials at least I was not told of any. We had to ask for more drinks. Despite the restaurant being relatively empty we were squeezed in a booth near the door. Also the food was ok—Very salty and nothing to rave about.

We made reservations and were seated upon arrival. Our server, Daniel, was training but he did an amazing job. All the staff was very engaged with their tables. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming but classy and glamorous at the same. The food is always outstanding.

RPM is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. The food is amazing - I highly suggest the spicy crab dish, the garlic bread, and the broccolini. Matt - one of the head waiters - is amazing, he always remembers my mom and I and he makes the experience that much better. I highly recommend for both locals and visitors.

Blew me out of the water. The octopus appetizer was the best I’ve ever had. I got the seabass as my entree and it was incredible. So much flavor! And excellent service.

I took my husband here for his birthday with a small group of friends. It was our first time, and we loved it. Everything was amazing, and we had a great time. The service was great, and the food and drinks were all wonderful. It’s a bit on the pricey side for us, but perfect for a date or special occasion.

This is not a place for business. Music was bad and so loud it was not possible to conduct business. And by the way, real Italians do not with LOUD disturbing music playing. It is very unhealthy.

The food was excellent, but the service was very bad, we asked for a booth or quiet table when we walked in, we were directed to the noisiest table in the restaurant even thought there were several open tables, we requested a move from the hostess and were told all the booths were reserves but moved us to quieter space. Out server was very inattentive, we sat with empty appetizer plates on our table for a very long time, and two hours later when it was time to leave there were still empty booths. Maybe we didn't look important enough!!!

Absolutely incredible. From the moment we sat down our server, Matthew, made us feel comfortable. Truly top notch service. Great food. The prime rib meat balls are to die for. Extensive wine list & our server had the knowledge to help us pick a great bottle. Will be back next time we are in DC & will request Matthew!

We enjoyed the food but the service could be improved. The first server was very pushy in trying to convince us to order multiple dishes- it was a turn off. But, I’d return if I was looking to dine near capital hill again.
