Located in the Union Market neighborhood, the second outpost of Joe Carroll’s popular NYC restaurant aims to bring some of the laid back vibes of Brooklyn to Washington, DC. St. Anselm is an American tavern devoted to the pleasures of grilled meats and great ingredients simply cooked. While steak is a specialty, the creativity doesn’t stop there. Delicious food, eclectic wines (some on tap), and classic cocktails set the tone for a great experience. Paired with friendly service in an unpretentious setting adorned with quirky décor, dining at St Anselm is the total package.

    Took my fiancé here for his 40th and it was exquisite! From booking the reservation to the final plate, everything was perfection. The biscuits, the oysters, the RIBEYE, Bronzino, and of course the ice cream cake and corn ice cream! Just stellar. Couldn’t recommend more.

    This place was so wonderful. The service was so great and it’s a very cool place. The food was amazing! The tomato and whipped ricotta was amazing. Every single entree we had was amazing and the sides were just wonderful. Such a cool location in what seemed to be an up and coming neighborhood. So glad we made the reservation and had this experience.

    St. Anselm is one of our favorite places in DC to go to for dinner, this time we gave brunch a try for Father’s Day. It exceeded our expectations! We started with the monkey bread and endive salad both were so delicious that we ate most of it. The brunch entrees were so tasty (a couple pictures missing of the other entrees)! It did not disappoint and we ended it with bringing an order of biscuits home. One of the best places for dinner or brunch! Service is always excellent + the staff are always so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!!

    First time in this new neighborhood of DC - visiting for the first time in almost 3 years. Brunch was great - solid breakfast sandwich, awesome deviled eggs and monkey bread. My daughter had the chocolate chip pancakes and loved them but she could only eat about 1/3 of the enormous portion. We really enjoyed sitting outside on a beautiful day.

    The house special cocktails are different without being experimental. The biscuits with pimento cheese are a must, as is the collard green side. The steaks had great char and were high quality beef.

    Just love St. Anselm, this was our fourth visit and it didn't disappoint. The menu is varied and interesting with something for everyone. We couldn't pass up a lot of the small plates, and honestly we could have just done that--but of course we needed the ribeye too. From start to finish, it was a really lovely evening to spend with family.

    We enjoyed expertly prepared fresh fish accompanied by a lovely butter lettuce salad, grilled potato salad (with smoked trout!) and grilled broccoli. Service was great and the ambiance fun and relaxing - just what we needed after a long full day of sightseeing and walking.

    St. Anselm has such amazing steak, some of the best in town that I’ve found, not to mention all of their other entrees, sides, and appetizers are also delicious. Try the blue crab deviled eggs! The ambience is also great for dates, families, friends, or any get together. Expect to pay in the range of 50 bucks for something like a New York Strip - or 25ish for something like steak and eggs. Well worth the cost, favorite spot in Union Market for sure.
