Southern Hospitality Ratings and Reviews
The food was tasty and the serving sizes were plentiful! However one food order was incorrect so it had to be sent back and we had to continuously ask our server to refill our bottomless mimosa glasses. Our server also tried to rush us out by giving us the check after we finished eating (about an hour in) but bottomless mimosas lasted for 2 hours. We had to hide the check so she would stop asking for it. I understand you need to flip tables but if customers purchased bottomless mimosas with a 2 hour limit dont rush them.
So let me start by saying that the food was amazing! However the wait staff acted like I was inconveniencing them, odd for a restaurant with hospitality in the name of it. We were sat and left, then back to ask for drinks or anything to get started. We placed the small plate order and received the small plate before the server asked for our main entree. I sat there without water for quite a while and anytime she did manage to come over she had an attitude. I was a server for many years through college and would have been embarrassed for myself with that type of attitude. It would have been slightly more acceptable with a crowd but we were one of a few people in there. I spend a lot of time on business within my company, along with several coworkers and I would hesitate to recommend it just based on the service, sad since the food was so good. But I don’t enjoy sitting in a place where I felt like I was imposing on their evening.
I expected a better seasoned meal. Our food wasn't bad but maybe my expectations were just too high. Our crab cake poached egg brunch was just OK. Our waitress seemed a bit hungover as she continued to drink a bloody mary while serving our table. Nice enough, but forgot things and never checked to refill our water, etc. Clearly her body was there but her mind was not.
Came here for my bday 12.18 had reservations and was greeted and seated immediately with 2 of my friends! The appetizers were so good i got full but still ordered an entree. The waitress was very nice and pleasant! They even gave us a round of shots and cake and ice cream for my bday! Overall an A+ experience and definitely coming back and would recommend this restaurant. Southern Hospitality at its best!!!!!!
This restaurant claims that brunch is over at 4:00pm, but i got there at 3:30 and they would not serve me from the brunch menu nor would they even serve me and my guest mimosas. If i would have known i wouldn’t have came to eat there. The service was also lackluster and there weren’t many people there. Once food wa served our waitress didn’t even come to check on us. I was very disappointed.
My friends and I visited D.C. To celebrate my birthday and had brunch here. Everything was amazing. From getting a confirmation phone call for our reservation the night before which I thought was really nice, to being accommodated with a last minute time change, to the actual food, it was all spectacular and I would absolutely return! Thank you for your wonderful service and great food!
I ordered the fried chicken Benedict. While the biscuit was delicious, the chicken was very rubbery. I had a few bites of the chicken before I decided to take it off the biscuit completely. I felt quite sick a few hours later...I probably would not go back.
My husband and I took some visiting family members to this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. The staff did a decent job of adding a table when we realized we had miscounted our party, though we did have to ask them twice to move the table. Aside from that, our server was attentive (almost too much, as she took plates that weren't ready to be cleared a couple of times), and the food was great! Our entire group was happy with what they ordered, and we ordered a variety of dishes, so that says a lot for the food. My only other concern was that it was difficult for our elderly family members to climb the stairs, though I know that can't be "fixed". However, it would be good for others to know that if they have mobility problems, they should request to be seated on the first floor. Despite that, I would definitely return!
The restaurant wasn't crowded when we arrived for our reservation so we were seated right away. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer and drinks. Both arrived in good time. We also ordered our entrees when we ordered the appetizer and drinks and the entrees came our moments after we finished the appetizer. My husband orders the pulled pork with cheese and french fries and did not seem thrilled with his meal. I ordered the salmon which was very tasty and cooked to order. Overall, the restaurant did not "wow" us, but we did enjoy ourselves.
We were sat outside next to an incredibly loud table of 10. We politely asked to sit inside and the manager acted like it was quite an inconvenience for him. The food was fair- it tasted like a boxed frozen dinner, but cooked in the oven instead of the microwave.
Several areas within the restaurant offer different experiences! One loud sports watching fun area, other areas still lively but easier to talk, outside dining is lively with great people watching opportunities. Food was delicious. 1/2 price Thursday wine night offered two really good wines at an affordable price. Best was hospitality offered by our host Wilmont!! His attention and personality turned our evening from just dinner out to a dining experience! Thanks Wilmont!
Pros: Great brunch with endless mimosas. Had a reservation but didn't need it so that was great.
Cons: Food came out cold but was super hungry so no time to send back. Endless mimosas were great until about 3hrs later I had the worst headache which generally acco for cheap alcohol.
Arrived 20 minutes early for a 1:45p Saturday brunch. Patio and bar area were fairly full, but we were seated immediately. The shrimp and grits were excellent, definitely recommended. Also had the SoHo Breakfast. Traditional breakfast so nothing to brag or complain about. We sat in the patio, nice place for Adams Morgan people watching and the wait staff was very attentive.
We arrived and saw they won't split checks. I was traveling for work and needed my receipt separate. I also didn't realize they didn't have a kids menu. When I asked, she simply stated, no. I said, nothing? Her response was "no, am I putting the water down or not".....
The draft beer, collards, and mac and cheese were good but I would not call this an authentic Southern restaurant because of the fried chicken. It was a breaded butterflied breast. There were no bone-in options and no dark meat options. That's a chicken tender not Southern fried chicken. The menu also was lacking in Southern staples. But I will try brunch there some time because it gets very good reviews and the service and seating were good.
Disappointed in the way that the host treated our party: rude, unwilling to listen, made a person with walking difficulties move to a table on the upper floor. Makes it hard to recommend Southern Hospitality if this is the way guests are treated upon arrival.
Server, on the other hand, was terrific.
