RPM Italian - DC
Great hostess and excellent food.
For such an expensive restaurant, the service was terrible. Our waiter didn't pay attention to us, nor did he make us feel welcome. He had a stuck-up attitude, and was looking after tables that would tip him well. It was my first visit to RPM, and was a horrible experience. I do not think I will recommend this place nor go back. Get some better waiters that will take care of every customer equally.
Great service and food !
Great food and service
Gluten free Carbonara was AMAZING! Whole meal was solid and drinks were great!
Everything very good and well priced. I thought the meats and fish were overpriced. I had the sea bass and it was way overcooked. Was not expecting that for the money I spent. Sommelier very good and patient.
Our server was not thebest
Overall great experience. Our server fell short in offering us the chef specials and bread but everything else was impeccable.
Incredible service comes standard. Have to order the brussels salad and the carbonara- you won’t regret either!
Overall it was a great experience and would return! The service was outstanding! 90% of the food was great, one of the dishes lacked depth of flavor and was bland. We look forward to returning!
Good food overall. Good service. Average to poor experience. In the reservation comments I requested a romantic spot for conversation. Instead we were seated in the middle. Various waitstaff kept holding loud, long conversations with the person seated next to us. At one point they sat down at the table loudly laughing. I'm fine with laughter but not if I asked for romantic seating. We were celebrating a birthday with conversation but feel the waitstaff talked over us. I asked to be moved and was told nothing more was available.
Great food world class wait stuff. Definitely would go back
I have never had a bad meal at RPM. Their food and service is exceptional. And I always recommend everyone save room for gelato!
Despite having an 8 pm reservation, we ultimately accepted a table in the bar at 8:15 when they could not advise how much longer we would have to wait for a table in the main dining room. Service was inconsistent. Despite being seated in the bar, it took forever to get our drinks and to place our food order. Then a delay getting our appetizers was paired with an immediate serving of the entrees right on top of the apps. Suffice it to say, the service was not commensurate to their prices, and at one point we thought the server had vacated the premises as she was absent for at least 20 minutes after taking our drink order.
Great venue for both business and fun groups.
Service and food amazing.
Between the food and the service everything here is great! The staff is super friendly, knows exactly how to cater to your taste buds. Ambiance is amazing
Great restaurant. We went for our anniversary and had indicated that on the reservation. They gave us 2 free glasses of Prosecco as well as a free dessert for the occasion. The service was excellent and food was delicious. Would return.
Great food, service, and wine!
Normally I love RPM but tonight was underwhelming. The bolognese was thick and a bit chewy. The veal chop wasn’t bad but a bit boring in flavor, missing some saltiness or acidity.
Service was also lackluster. Just didn’t seem to have the same feel we are used too. My wife and I will still come back, but hope it’s a better experience.
As a last minute decision, we decided to go RPM on Saturday to satisfy our Italian food cravings. We started at the bar for a cocktail, all which were very good. Rather than sit in the dining room, we decided to sit at the high top tables in the bar area because we liked the vibe, hostess was accommodating. Our server, Jose, was so delightful and thoughtful...especially in terms of the food timing given that we didn't have a lot of room on the table. In general, service staff was great at filling water and taking completed dishes.
Appetizers - Lobster Caprese, Wagyu Beef Carpaccio and Mediterranean Octopus
Between the 4 of us we ordered - Prosciutto Toretlloni, Sardinian Gnocchi, Spicy King Grab and Veal special
Dessert - Bill's Chocolate Budino
Alexa, Sommelier was helpful and very passionate about her work.
Overall a wonderful experience and would totally go back.
I went to RPM for my birthday and I had such a great time. The ambiance is everything! I loved their gluten free menu. I loved everything about RPM. I recommend you try it out.
Dad ‘s birthday
For a special occasion, my wife’s birthday, it would’ve been nice if we had been seated at a small booth especially since I had made the reservation a month in advance and I am a repeat customer.
Our server Daniel, was very nice and attentive, but he could’ve brought the appetizers first and then the beet salad after the apps were cleared rather than bringing all three plates at the same time since the table for two was quite small and very difficult to maneuver two large appetizer and a salad plate.
Food was outstanding, but gnocchi portion a bit small.
Happy Birthday cones art the end of the meal was an awesome touch.
All in all, a 4.5 out of 5.
We Loved everything about RPM in DC.
The menu is well planned witb options for all in our group. Standards and new twists populate the menu with specials. Both the drink list and wine list are creative and offer many choices. Our server was exceptional and seemed to know when to appear wothout being intrusive.
