Party of 3 people at around 7pm on a Sunday. We made reservations, but it was not necessary as there were only two other parties there.
We waited 5 minutes for a server to come over and greet us and provide menus.
It took another 15 minutes for a server to come take our drink orders and food orders. The service was absolutely awful. Despite there being over 5 staff members and only 3 parties in the restaurant, we waited over 20 minutes for service. The servers were just standing around the bar talking and completely ignored our attempt to wave them down.
We decided to order our drinks and then just leave because we were so frustrated.
Amazing view of the DC area at night with the Skyline in the background. Service was good & the food was delicious.
The View was amazing.... But, that's about it. The food wasn't all that good. I would recommend eating somewhere else and just go there for appetizers and drinks. You can get much better quality food for the same (if not less) price they charge. The salmon was very fishy tasting with no flavoring. The puree was horrible. The chicken was dry and you would need to eat with the skin for any flavoring. I'm glad we didn't get any steaks cause even the couple next to us had to request A1 sauce cause the steak didn't have flavor. (A well prepared steak doesn't need sauce when done correctly). For such a small place it does get pretty loud. Would I go back? Sure.. but just for drinks. Plan to park on the street or somewhere near as their garage at the Hilton gets full. We had to park a few blocks away and walk.
Great view. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The chairs and tables were basic cafe style. The food was better than expected. We would go back again. The reviews don’t do it justice.
Well... it’s by no means a fancy restaurant (food, tables, chairs, servers) with fancy prices. The view is good but the constant rotation makes no sense. It should stay still and then turn a little then stay still etc. in my opinion at least. Food was OK. Not bad but not the best.
Had a fantastic time there. Will definitely be going back soon.
Good scenery of the city. Not a lot of meal options and the taste was mediocre. If you place value on ambience, definitely the place for you. But if you place emphasis on food variety and quality, not sure if it is. Overall good rating.
Great service and view of DC.
Nice view of DC.
It made one circle in about 50 minutes.
When we got there at around 6:30pm, there weren't too many people.
However, when left at around 8pm (almost two circles), the place was full.
Food was good. Their menu is on their website.
They also have a kids menu (grilled cheese sandwich, and chicken tenders).
The negative was that there was a big group of people (attending some conference), who went near other people's tables to take pictures (because I guess their tables were not at the best locations at that moment of time). They should have just waited for their tables to be at the best locations, which would take less then 50 minutes.
Great atmosphere, wonderful service, amazing view.
Suggested improvements: food could use more refinement and flavour (although dessert was fresh and delicious and served with a birthday wish!); darker and softer chairs and a bit more of modern decor would create a warmer, more inviting ambiance and would better compliment the view.
Easy access, fast and professional service, helpful, friendly, accommodating staff.
Overall a great experience and definitely recommended. Thank you!
Very nice view, definitely paying for it but it’s a cool experience.
I tried to use a $25 credit and they said they couldn’t accept it.
Food was not impressive at all. The restaurant was very noisy and the only good thing was that it was rotating.
We had the best time. The food was excellent and our server was outstanding and attentive.
The view and setting was fun. Our kids loved that the floor moved!
It was a memorable occasion to surprise a friend. Thank you for accomodating us.
Very nice room and good service. Beautiful view of Washington DC in the evening with rotating room.
Spectacular view, flavorful food and excellent service. Definitely recommend!
I would recommend to a friend to visit at least once.
But be prepared the food wasn't that good as compared to the price paid.
The service was amazing as well as the view, this experience made my 8 year Anniversary one to remember, well done
Our visit was a very pleasant experience and surprise. The view was what I wanted for the wife enjoying her birthday. The food and service was the surprise. Our waiter was inventive, the food was well prepared.
We have gown up in the Washington metro area, married, moved in and out two times. We have always looked up to see the Skydome while driving into DC but never stopped in. Our loss, should have come sooner. Definitely on our list for future visits.
View was lovely. Suggest a light appetizer and drinks.
Only recommend for view. One dish we had was good. The salmon was Horrible. Service was mediocre.
Beautiful view, great service.
Great view!! Food was excellent and the service was good.
I will make it a part of every visit to Washington D. C.
Overall just an underwhelming experience. Will not return. They didn’t do anything wrong, they just didn’t wow us.
Excellent food, drinks, and service.
We were celebrating our 25th anniversary at this restaurant where we got engaged. We arrived and there was trouble with the elevator so we had to wait to get to the restaurant. As we were waiting to get served, they were still setting up for the evening. A large birthday party came in and they were noisy so we did not feel the service was great. The food however, was outstanding. Due to slow service and our timeline we did not get to enjoy dessert. We would go back for the food but would hope for better service.
We found the food excellent, the service as good as expected, although the staff was very busy it being a Sunday evening at about 7. Price? As expected because of the location, but a bit heavy on the drink charges. A shame that the apartment buildings built next door tend to block a lot of the view.
Great views and good food. It was a a pretty bustling environment on the Sunday evening I had a table. Only real complaint was my main course arrived as I was still finishing my starter but I was almost done so purely a timing issue I think.
Great overall experience.
Beautiful views, and I would rather go there for drinks than dinner. Very slow service and food just OK, with some entrees needing improvement (Spanish Rice)
The views make this a special place! Service was a little slow on a Friday (around 6pm-8pm), but the wait staff was friendly and the food/drink was very good! Overall, a good special occasion experience for the money.
The Food took one Hour to be ready if you order Well done steak
Food was very good but were still eating salad when main courses came out. Had to hurry so food wouldn’t get cold. But overall it was an enjoyable evening.
Fabulous location for local and out of town business dinner . Food , service and ambiance mAde for a great evening
The view is incredible! I had a blast with my girlfriend and she loved it , made her feel super special the atmosphere is great so was the food. Just wish there were more options but either way it was amazing. Anyone looking to impress for a date GIVE THIS PLACE A MUST TRY!
This is a lovely spot. My husband and I had date night here and I can’t wait to bring back my friends who will be visiting in June from Budapest. They will love this venue!
This was a wonderful experience and definitely a check on the bucket list. I wasn’t too impressed with the sauce that went with the chicken, it didn’t really go together. And I was there for my birthday and most restaurant acknowledge that with either dessert or something but nothing. The waiter was nice but we did wait 45 min for our food.
