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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
