RPM Italian - DC
It was my husbands birthday. Great food and mostly great staff. I feel like we waited on service a tad long considering there weren’t any people there when we arrived. However, only a small annoyance, most of everything was really good.
Great service and food!
Amazing restaurant and it was quite crowded for a Monday. The food was divine and the service was great. We loved the ambiance and are looking forward to returning (without our 2 year old)!
The atmosphere is great and so was the experience. I food was good but I expected a little more interesting combinations.
Loved the whole theme. The food was amazing, our waiter was on point. If I ever go back to D.C I’d definitely go back to RPM Italian!
Everything on the menu looked amazing. I got a dozen of the oysters and they were small but good. I got the Pappardelle Bolognese and it was delicious. I also tried the Lobster Ravioli, and the truffle risotto (a special). All were very good and the portions were perfect. That being said, I wish there were a few more option on the menu. Our waiter Caleb was AMAZING--so nice and helped us all out since it was our first time.
Absolutely amazing dining experience. Food is excellent and the service is TOP NOTCH! Highly recommend the garlic bread and meatballs to start. Try to save room for dessert it’s to die for! Will be back again!
Amazing can’t wait to go back
RPM always does an amazing job. Mention that you are going for a special occasion ie. (anniversary, birthday, etc) and they will certainly take care of you and make it special.
Waiter brought us dessert. Very nice
Place is dope and serves dope food
Wonderful evening with out of town family. Beautiful room. Delicious food.
Best Italian in DC
Love this place! Food is always top notch and exceptional service! Great vibe also!
Great food. We have eaten at both RPM DC and Chicago. Both have great food. Yes, very pricey but so much excellence comes with the experience of one of the best restaurants around.
Service was amazing!
This was my first visit to RPM Italian and it won't be my last. From the ambiance and service, to the delicious food and quality of the drinks - I'm surprised I hadn't dined here sooner. My favorites included the fresh ricotta appetizer, creamy carbonara (I swapped out the spaghetti for bucatini pasta so every crevice would be filled with the amazing sauce) and aperol spritz (aka the "P"). I definitely will be returning for another wonderful dining experience.
We’re seated right away with our reservation. Waiter came over promptly and got our drink orders. Martini in chilled glass (of course), glass on small size - but delicious! Service was excellent and food amazing! I had the prosciutto tortellini, order of meatballs and split the slo cooked pork rib with my DH. Dessert was hot donuts with Nutella - WOW! Overall a great experience and hope to go again soon!
Had lunch here and it was excellent. Prosciutto appetizer and tagliatelle bolognese. I will be back for dinner soon.
Anniversary! Our waiter was spot on!! Made our experience memorable
Impressive service to go along with a thoughtful well executed menu. Wine list was excellent if a bit pricey.
I was unimpressed. The ambience was weird, open concept, it looked like something from a movie set. The dishes on which the food was served was better than the food tasted and better than the offerings on the menu. On the plus size, the customer service was great. Overall, it was just meh for me. I would not return. I thought it was pretty much a disappointment.
Outstanding! Delicious Food & Cocktails. Chic Ambiance
Exceptional service and delicious food! I definitely plan to return.
RPM is a family favorite. Consistently excellent food and service.
I would recommend even though I was not impressed by the meal and the value as it relates. Everything else was the reason for the 4 rating but the food was what kept me from suggesting a 5 rating. Servers, ambiance, hostess were all great but the food was simply simple. I consider myself a person who knows good food but to me it was nothing special. I would return to try other dishes with hopes that I’m wrong about the food but I ordered 3 totally separate entres, 2 appetizers, and desert and again I really was not moved. I truly did expect more from the kitchen since the restaurant was suggested for a special occasion but the price to me did not match up with the taste quality of our meals.
Excellent. Short ribs were outstanding. Wound up taking the Brussels with me given how much food. Was terrific the next day as well. Outstanding service.
Our server was excellent - didn't get his name! Meal was delicious!
The food was DELICIOUS and fresh and the service was impeccable!!
Great time. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Great size portions. Lovely evening
The food was beyond incredible. Our server was fantastic. The seating is close quarters so not ideal for a private conversation but overall it was an incredible experience.
While on vacation, we went for a nice meal. Our waiter, Matt, was fantastic, he made it fun!
And the food was phenomenal!
If we ever get back to DC, we’ll be back!
Food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful.
Our second time for dinner and it was delicious. We had Tyler as our waiter, who was excellent and very attentive. Will be back!
Our service was amazing, and the food was incredible, as always. Our server brought a few complimentary items for us to try, and each was delicious. It was unusually quiet due to the holiday and there were no disappointments.
Very good food, a bit on the pricy side for what you get. I'm not used to D.C. prices though, so it may be on par with other restaurants of the same caliber in the area. The atmosphere was great- the service a little on the slow side but it fit with the relaxed environment.
We all agreed that this was the best meal out we had ever had. From drinks to desserts, top notch.
Its a beautiful restaurant. The staff were very pleasant. The food wasn’t amazing honestly. I expected more as far a taste.
Started with a visit to the bar. I enjoyed 2 of the old fashions. Amazing. Once we were seated our server was Daniel. Could not have had a better server. Thank you Daniel. We ordered the meatballs and green olives stuffed. Order both if you go to RPM. The meatballs and sauce/gravy should be sold to the masses. Dinner came and i had chicken parm and the wife had the giant sprawns and brussel sprouts a d whipped potatoes finished the meal. Everything was amazing.
