Succotash - Penn Quarter DC
SUCCOTASH is named after the classic dish that has been a longstanding staple of the Southern table. While many know “Succotash” when they see it, the dish has been interpreted, modified and passed from generation to generation for centuries. While Succotash between families will share similarities, each family’s recipe is deeply personal and reminiscent of those special suppers that brings kin together. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

Went there for Valentine’s Day
We had a tremendous Valentine meal at Succotash.
Everything was hitting on all cylinders. I was amazed at how everyone smiled, everyone checked on every table, our server, Solo, was right up there in the ranking with some of the best service we have ever had.
The food was absolutely wonderful. We started with the cornbread muffins and the pulled bbq mushroom dish. BOOM!!! A little mostoco wine from the dessert menu as suggested by Solo, and OMG!
I could drag this review on for a few more paragraphs but for what reason.
5 stars go there!!
Lunch was to be a special event for my daughter and Succotash made it special from the service to the food!
Enjoyed dinner before the Caps game on Monday. Food and service never disappoint! Shared cornbread app- a must every time! We each had the pimento cheeseburger with bacon jam. I was nervous for the bacon jam but it worked so well with the burger! The hostess was very sweet and welcoming. Our server was very friendly and enjoyed sharing some of her favorites from the bar and dinner menu.
Excellent menu!! Food was outstanding.
Went for our one year first date anniversary. Food is delicious, drinks are outstanding and the service is perfect.
What could possibly be lacking in a Southern-style restaurant with 85 kinds of bourbon available? Nothing, it turns out. This beautiful restaurant in a remodeled, stately old building was a last minute choice after seeing its ad in a playbill at Ford's Theater, and we had a wonderful sampler dinner, titled "Taste of the South," served by an efficient and knowledgeable waiter. The first courses included tiny corn muffins served with homemade apple butter and a fried green tomato salad that was refreshing and seasoned just right. There followed courses of spice-rubbed spareribs that fell off the bone (accompanied by wonderfully spicy, acidic collards), fried catfish with spicy aioli, and fried chicken and waffles. Everything was skillfully prepared, spiced perfectly, and accompanied by inventive sauces, relishes, and side dishes. The finishing touch was a dessert plate of chocolate/pecan tarts, pecan cookies, and fresh berries. It was a completely satisfying tour through modern, Southern cuisine that we highly recommend.
Desi was amazing! Our party enjoyed her suggestions and she was delightful as our Ambassador to Succotash! It made my brothers birthday gather a great experience!
The food never disappoint!
Our server was the best! I can’t remember his name but he guaranteed he was going to take care of us and he definitely did! Busy Sunday brunch but seated right away. A great dining experience!
Delicious food, as usual. Lovely service, too. Such a pretty place.
Our dinner and service in the restaurant was outstanding. The only negative part of the evening was the bar. we had a cocktail there first. The bar was full of dirty glasses and dishes and it was hard to get a bartenders' attention to get served.
Real nice atmosphere good food took an hour and 45 minutes though to get our food but will try it again
I really, really loved the ambience and the service which was impeccable from the host, to the bar server to our dining server. We had the Belle's Punch which was soooo good!! For dinner, we had several appetizers , a side of succotash curry, dirty chicken and hummingbird cake. The succotash curry is to die for. I wasn't crazy about the dirty chicken but my dining partner loved it. Warning: the slice of hummingbird cake is large enough for at least 2. Overall, a great dining experience and will go there again.
Phenomenal brunch spot!
Loved the service, very hospitable and welcoming. Even brought out a little dessert for my mothers birthday. It was unfortunate that the food was not too great.
I thought the food was mediocre
It's wonderful to have a taste of the South in DC. The service was excellent and the food, very flavorful. The only downside was that it was rather loud and difficult to have a conversation among two people - maybe there is something they can do to absorb the sound. Otherwise, it's a wonderful establishment and I'll be back.
The food was excellent! We started with the friend green tomatoes, then moved to the following entrees: the chicken and waffles and the fried catfish, both of which were well prepared and tasted great.
We shared the hummingbird cake which was just ok. It seemed like it was taken directly out of the refrigerator. Therefore, it was too cold and dried out instead of moist.
So amazing. Hush puppies had a nice kick, corn bread was great, Mac n cheese was tasty. But chicken and waffles was the best. Omg. Ate too much but so worth it. Restaurant is beautiful and although packed with people could talk with folks at table easily. Service great. No complaints only complements. Will come back again and will recommend to friends.
My friend had the short rib. Wow, huge portion and yummy! The hot fired oysters are a must. Nice variety of cocktails and wines. Only negative is that is very loud
Had another amazing lunch at Succotash on Tuesday. In addition to the delicious fried green tomatoes, smoked wings, and catfish, the service was PHENOMENAL. Exactly what you want when your friend is in town visiting.
overall was good with 2 exceptions - One of the popular cocktails we ordered they said they were out of. we then chose something else and it took forever to get that drink. we had already had our appetizers and entree was served and we were still waiting for the drink. our server said they were looking downstairs for a new bottle as what we chose the 2nd time apparently they had none on the bar.
the second thing was I had the salmon - although was good was very salty.
Overall, beautiful restaurant and probably would give it another try.
Service was lacking. Poor menu knowledge and explanation made ordering difficult. As a chef I was very disappointed in the delivery of such amazing food. The table of unimpressed business men getting “complimentary” dishes and desserts left and right made it disheartening as a person who would’ve enjoyed the opportunity and will probably not get the chance to eat this food again.Overall not pleased with our dining experience.
Overall great experience! Food was very good, though service could have been a little better.
Everyone in my party was extremely happy with their brunch dish, those who had dessert raved about that as well. Every component was balanced and thoughtful. The portions were also larger than we expected.
Fabulous experience!! Amazing food and drinks. Overall good ambiance.
I had eaten here previously and the food was quite good. This time it was really off--no one liked their food out of the five of us in our group. Things were lukewarm, salty, and didn't taste fresh. The chicken and waffles was the best bet of the group.
It might have been an off night, but it was a big bummer. The service and ambiance were fine. Not sure I'll be back to try again.
the only major issue was the food was entirely too salty!
This was the first time dining here. The atmosphere was calm. While there was plenty of chatter throughout the restaurant the high ceilings seem to absorb it. the food was great, well prepared and presented. The only downside, it was pretty chilly upstairs. Definitely would dine there again.
Really enjoyed our meal. Food was excellent and atmosphere was wonderful. I highly recommend the shrimp and grits...best I’ve ever had.
Service was the best. Will definitely be back!!
Heard a lot of positive reviews. We went for Birthday brunch. The food left us a little disappointed; no real flavor. The fried green tomatoes were bland as well as the cheesy grits. The waffles were dry and almost cold upon arrival. No one had anything real positive to say about their selections. Maybe the dinner hour is better. All in all, for a 31 mile drive and cost of parking, it wasn’t worth the time and price so don’t think we’ll make another attempt.
The food was amazing! The service was by far the best I have had in quite some time. It was evident to me Succotash has a consistent training program for their staff. I will definitely be back to check out their happy hour.
The food and service was wonderful however your drink prices are almost as much as an entree
Excellent food, not too loud, great venue and service during brunch.
Everything about the place begs you to love it. It's beautiful, the food is great and the cocktails are fantastic. The service is terrible, though. We had a reservation and were seated on time but about 20 minutes passed before we got any attention, and even that was in the form on someone walking by saying "are y'all ready to order food?" The server was pleasant enough, but never greeted us, shared the specials, etc. nor did she ever check on us after the food came. Just weird, almost confusingly poor attention. Other tables' food was brought to our table multiple times and most staff just seemed lost. In their defense, the manager did come offer us free dessert to attempt to make up for it. (After the check was dropped off, we checked with the hostess to see if there was a dessert menu out of curiosity, which must have gotten passed up the chain of command) By that point, we had all spent enough time waiting that we were ready to leave and get on with the day somewhere else.
Victoria and team - once again - created a warm, welcoming and delicious experience. Thank you😘
We are from Louisiana ... and had been in DC for about 4 days. So while this is not branded in any way as "Cajun" it certainly had me feeling "at home" but with a flair of innovation and healthiness. Great tastes but not overpowering, basic ingredients used with creativity. And the drinks were the same. Quality Food and Service. A bit loud ... but not a deal-breaker at all.
Fun menu, great meal, lovely space. Recommend!
