Amazing service and great food. We went for brunch with a toddler and a 6 week old. They gave us a really nice private booth that was separate from the dining room. It was perfect. Really kind and attentive staff too!
Arrived for lunch in the blizzard. Could not have had better service! Not only did they take good care of us relative to food but called around to determine every museum’s status for the day and advise us what was open and what wasn’t. Food was awesome too!
This was my second time at Succotash and first at the Washington DC location. Both times I did the taste of the south menu and they really put their foot into it. Highly suggested.
Our runner, Paris, was excellent. He explained everything perfectly.
I love what they have turned Ultra bar into, it looks really nice in there.
The ambiance is delightful and the food even better! I'll definitely return many times as there are so many more items on the menu I must try.
Went to Succotash based on a reccomendation while in DC for a conference. Table of 6 - staff was laid back and friendly, but also efficient. The wine steward was knowledgable and helpful with selections. They have an EXTENSIVE bourbon list, but we did stick to wine on this occasion. The food was excellent - we had a variety of dishes, including multiple appetizers (I particularly enjoyed the Nashville Hot Fried Oysters and the teeny biscuits that come on the ham board) and sides (bacon mac and cheese was my personal favorite, though everyone else really loved the watermelon and fried peanuts). I would definitely return on a future trip to DC.
As always service, food and atmosphere was great. Love this place.
Everything from the food to the service was top notch. I went with a group of friends for a birthday dinner. I will definitely be visiting the restaurant again.
Wonderful atmosphere and excellent food! Service was incredibly slow, but the food was good. I would definitely go again, but would recommend not going for brunch as the service took a really long time. Might be better for a dinner spot or lunch.
I love this restaurant. But your very first interaction is with a snotty, rude host who acts like you are annoying him by being there. Get rid of him!
Went for brunch and got the Taste of the South family style menu. It was absolutely amazing. Our server Natasha was attentive and knew the menu well. Also the venue is just stunning, even the bathrooms are perfect decorated. I can’t wait to return to DC and visit again.
Phenomenal. Food, service, atmosphere - all great! Highly recommend the testing menu that was very reasonably prices and generous with its servings.
I’ll start by saying my husband and I eat out in DC a LOT. Love all things Aaron Silverman and Blagden alley...Ed Lee knocked it out of the park with Succotash. I’m a louisville native so I NEVER order fried chicken in this town. Lee’s dirty fried chicken is the best fried chicken I’ve ever had in my life. The grits were great, short ribs great...the sommelier - when I asked about a bottle of wine - recommended something better and less expensive. I will say it’s a ton of food. Portions are huge. Service was wonderful. The space is gorgeous. Will definitely return.
Their service and food was wonderful! Awesome vegan option, though mostly meat. Their watermelon and fried peanut side was very very good and unusual. I will definitely be going back. The inside of the restaurant is also gorgeous as an added bonus!
Excellent special for the evening... short ribs
Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Unique menu.
Ate here twice while in DC, with two different groups, 16 people altogether, and EVERYONE loved it. The 'Taste of the South' for two or more a terrific bargain: three starters, corn cakes, three entrees, two sides, two desserts, enjoyed them all. Favorites: smoked chicken wings, collards with ham, ribs, fried green tomatoes. Dining spaces spacious and comfortable; relaxed without being sloppy. Solid comfort food with lively and interesting touches: kimchi in the collards, shaved bonito on the green veg, tangy buttermilk dressing. Highly recommended.
Outstanding!!!! I made a reservation for my group before we arrived in DC and was impressed by the whole experience. Food was great and our waiter was even better. The restaurant is in an old bank building making for a unique and exciting place to dine. I would recommend this place to everyone I know visiting the DC area.
I picked the restaurant because I am a top chef super fan and loved Edward Lee. The shrimp and grits were the best I have ever had. My mom’s catfish was phenomenal. I am so glad we went there. Oh and the staff is so attentive and knowledgeable. A perfect meal.
Staff was so accommodating after I had to change the reservation twice to add more to our party. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the menu for family style presentation offered a wonderful way to taste a variety of food. The pacing of presentation was excellent. I recommend Succotash highly (and the variety of bourbon and whiskey available was astonishing).
I loved the decor and the friendliness of the staff. I was with two foreign visitors, and they had difficulty understanding one of the waiters who spoke fast and mumbled a bit (not an issue for me as a native speaker of English, but they struggled and I had to repeat each time). The food was great and we enjoyed the "Taste of the South" menu. I'd do it again but everything was so good it left us wanting more!
Would definitely go back again. Reasonably-priced and service was on point.
Succotash is a beautiful restaurant in an old bank building with lots of natural light. My boyfriend and I had the family style brunch so we got to try smaller portions of multiple dishes. My favorites were the chicken and waffles and the fried green tomatoes. We also had the smoked wings which were full of flavor. We also had a pitcher of the Belle's punch which is tasty with a kick. Would recommend Succotash for a lovely Sunday brunch.
The atmosphere and decor is absolutely divine - very bright, fresh, and beautiful. The food was delicious as well - I had the chicken and waffles with manchego and pickled okra (so good) - though choosing just one dish was super difficult...everything sounded amazing! Went here for brunch with two girlfriends after a late night out and it was the perfect choice for gourmet comfort food in a relatively quiet and low key environment. Just what we needed. Would absolutely recommend Succotash to a friend and will certainly go back!
We had a great dinner with friends celebrating their anniversary. We were seated in a small, quiet, private nook perfectly sized for 4. Hostess was extremely pleasant and accommodating. She toured us around two areas that can be reserved for large groups and made sure we got a great table. Waitress was friendly, informative and attentive. I ordered ribs, which were terrific, and as soon as I began thinking "I would love an extra napkin," the waitress arrived at the table with a warm, wet towel to clean my hands. All our food was great... wings, fried green tomato salad, octopus, duck schnitzel, salmon. They also gave us a huge complementary slice of "hummingbird cake" ... also great. Prices were reasonable. We will definitely go back.
Lovely setting with generous bankette booths. Low lighting with a gaslight ambiance. We were seeking a Southern dining experience similar to restaurants in Charleston, and Succotash did not disappoint. (No shrubs or fried pickles though) Our server Indigo was polite and helpful. We had pinot noir with a flounder fennel dish and a buttery soft short rib plate. Both were lick-the-plate-clean delicious served on eclectic grandma china. Dessert was hummingbird truffles and it was just enough sweet to end the meal. We will be back!
Great service, OK food, can share dishes but I would stay simple, hot brown sandwich exactly that. Server Jameel excellent but they should explain what they are serving. Also jackhammers outside are a noise problem. Good location in an old bank and former dance venue from 80s.
The ambiance is beautiful, the staff are professional, and the food options are superb! The bourbon milkshake really hit the spot, along with my chicken and waffles.
The Washington Post review couldn't be more off base. This was our second visit, and each was fantastic. Milk punch is inventive, the Old Fashioned very solid. Mint julep was a clunker - too much shaved ice. We shared the Southern Sampler, which was copious and delicious. Catfish, which is usually not a favorite, was hot(!), crispy and good. Fried chicken was good, although Dirty Chicken (which we had in other visit, but is not part of the Sampler) was better. Service was very good - knowledgeable and attentive but not overdone.
Fantastic and beautiful!
I loved how we were greeted and that the restaurant took note of my request for seating in the little nook, which is a beautiful quiet space. They even let us be seated before our last friend arrived. The server was visibly annoyed that we only drank water. Being in the nook must have prevented our waiter from seeing us because when we wanted to order food, we had to flag down another server. And sorry say, but he also smelled like an old Atlantic City smoking lounge--to the point where it was distracting. Is chainsmoking a "protected class"? He did help us wih ordering for our late friend, and keeping her food warm. He also took our picture when we asked. When we got the food--catfish, fried chicken and waffles, smoked wings and brussel sprouts--it was delicious! Loved the food;the service, not so much.
All around fantastic experience! Perfect environment for friends getting together! The brunch tasting menu was excellent!
Went here with a group of friends for Sunday brunch. The space is beautiful space, but food just average. I ordered the eggs benedict, which were over salted and turned to mush before I was half finished. The restaurant was pretty busy so maybe other things on the menu are good?
I absolutely LOVED the food!! I was at Succotash for the first time this past weekend and I've raving about it to anyone who will listen and its only Monday
What a find! The building is a gem, the staff friendly and the food is quite good. Even tho it is Southern, dishes don't go overboard in being unhealthy. So you feel you can have the fried green tomatoes or shrimp and grits without blowing your calories for the weekend.
Splendid addition to F Street's vibrant restaurant scene. Loved everything about the place from the impressive facade to the beautiful interior. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable and provided wonderful recommendations. My sincere hope is that it has many long years in the DC area.
We had a great brunch. Food was delicious, the building is beautiful and the management was very attentive, checking in throughout the meal. Looking forward to coming back.
Loved the food. Waiter was fun and so helpful. Get the hummingbird cake!!
Food and service were great. Lovely decor, comfortable seating. Felt special
I've been coming to this restaurant since they opened. I like the food, especially the dirty cobb, and decided to try something new. I ate the kalbi beef salad. The meet was incredibly fatty, gray, and under-seasoned. The lettuce was wet and limp. I cannot imagine I'll be coming back to eat any time soon.
The food was amazing. We went for brunch! Would highly recommend for brunch. I specifically loved the Belle's punch in which we were able to order a pitcher
