RPM Italian - DC
Great ambiance, knowledgeable waiter, delicious meal. I had the short rib, it was very tender and an excellent flavor.
The food was delicious. We will definitely be coming back.
I frequent RPM a lot because you can't beat the quality of the food and level of service!
Every year we come back during the GAC conference as it is my wife’s favorite
Next day and I am still thinking of my dinner last night. Excellent. Service is always excellent. Food always excellent. I love RPM. The garlic bread with Pomodoro sauce on the side is so good. The cesar salad is amazing. It has polenta croutons and the dressing is delicious. The meatballs are the best you will ever have. Mama’s Pomodoro is my favorite. I have actually asked for two helpings in the past. The Chitarra Cacio e Pepe was very good. It needed a bit more black pepper and parmesan. But I would get it again. The pasta has a bite to it. I used to get this same dish at Mike Isabella’s with a different pasta noodle. I never thought I would like anyone else’s but this came close. On to dessert, the most fabulous play on Baked Alaska. This is a beautiful show, Torta Meringata. It is wonderful. It is like a burnt marshmallow with chocolate and ice cream. It is heavenly. The table side prep is beautiful.
My wife said that it was “perfect”...soooo, guess I have to agree with the First Lady!!
We had a wonderful dinner - Sue was an amazing server.
RPM had amazing food and the service was pretty good. Our waiter and others were attentive and receptive to our needs all evening. I definitely recommend a reservation, the dining room was pretty packed and the noise level was high but all in all a great experience.
Always a great experience. Great food & service. Lunch last week was a lovely break from work! As always ordered the artichokes - which are the BEST - then Sea Bass which was so light and amazing taste. Ended with ice cream with Italian strawberries which were amazing. RPM is the only DC restaurant we have gone back to over and over again. It never disappoints.
Per usual, the service was impeccable and the food was out of this world. It never fails to disappoint!
Came here for a business meeting and was delighted with the service and food!
We ordered the meatballs and the truffle garlic bread as appetizers. Ohhhhhh the bread!!! I could sing a song about the bread! Simply delicious! The meatballs were moist and tender and therefore, gone in 60 seconds.
Our server was Najee and he was fabulous as well. He recommended the Waitlist as the most popular non alcoholic drink. It was perfectly refreshing!
I will definitely come back the next time I’m in DC!
Amazing!! Great ambiance no matter the occasion. Everything from food to service was enough to make me come back again and again!
Amazing experience. Wonderful cuisine, A+ level service from seating to wait staff to sommelier. Attention to detail, can’t wait to return.
Excellent service, food, ambiance...always! The Lobster Fra Diavolo was amazing!
Good food. Great dining experience
Outstanding! Food always impresses
Great place to have a good meal. Fathers bday went perfect.
The 2 stars is for the service. We were seated at 7pm and a server didn’t come back to greet us or get drinks orders until 8pm. 8pm! I don’t know if there was some confusion on who was serving our table but someone from the main room came over and asked if we were okay since he noticed we were sitting for awhile. He grabbed the manager and then another server - he was very nice about it. They did make up for it by giving us giving us free appetizers, which we appreciated and over all the food was delicious!
We were visiting DC for National Junior volleyball tournament. The restaurant was busy, yet the noise level was fine for individual conversations. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and make recommendations without being overbearing. Our appetizers were very good, we shared mozzarella balls and burrito with lobster. Entrees were excellent, we had 2 pasta dishes (tortellini and short ribs) and chicken - everything was excellent. House wine was good and reasonably priced.
Short Ribs- pretty tasty
Lobster app- super duper good
Meatballs app- awesome
One of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. The food is expensive but it was first class. The chicken Parmesan was amazing. We will certainly visit again when we are in DC.
Our experience was great, waiter was awesome and so friendly!
Food was very tasty. Our waiter was top notch!
One of my favorites! Food is always delicious.
Great food, great service with a nice atmosphere!!
Amazing service. First time dining there, but had been there for happy hour many times before. Food was amazing and came out very quickly. Our server Sean was very funny and was very convincing with the specials and we ended up getting 2 of them which were phenomenal. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy a fine dining experience. Will definitely be back soon.
Food was great. Service was slow despite being there at our reserved time on Valentine's Day. But overall, everything was excellent. Food tasted fresh and delicious.
Was good, had good service will have all my work lunches there from now on
I enjoyed my Valentine’s Day there, customer service was great and food was even better. Only complaint was the bathroom but it was still nice.
Friends and colleague get together dinner. Great service food and overall experience was superb. Will be back.
Foods are too salty and main dish had no sides. Lobster ravioli was good.
Wonderful! Best carbonara I’ve ever had!
Everything was amazing. The only area that I would not give 5 stars is the noise level. It was really hard to talk but we were there due the busiest time of the evening so ever table was taken.
Overall so good and would recommend to anyone who is in DC.
This place is great for a date night, families or out with your girls. Great food! My favorite is the meatball appetizer, the truffle garlic bread and the grilled giant prawns. I love to sit in their huge bar area because of the ambiance and the decor.
