Succotash PRIME is a progressive perspective of classic Southern favorites. James Beard Award winner Edward Lee brings his Korean roots and Southern repertoire to a soulful Southern Steakhouse menu.

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. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

    The food was really good. The fried oysters were friend just right and had a good spice kick to them. It was a little noisy with all the people and a live duo band playing in the balcony.

    The management team here is amazing. This was my third visit but I’ll be honest there was a service hiccup tonight. However, a restaurant that has a management team that can jump on the issue, get it resolved and make it right is a restaurant that I will come back to over and over. Food is amazing, staff wants you to have a great experience and the location is amazing. Can’t wait to come back for another fried chicken and waffles.

    The food was delicious and our server was very efficient and kind. Unfortunately, I ordered a Prime Martini which came in a glass that was literally have full. They charge $18 for this martini. I make plenty of 2 ounce martinis at home and this was nowhere near that. I kindly asked the waiter if this was normal and he brought it back to the bartender, who sent it back as it was. And now it was warm to boot. Our server acknowledged that many people complain about their martinis, and had already done so that day. After five warm sips it was done and I switched to beer.

    The menu looks spectacular and combined with the design and theme of the restaurant, appears to be a great choice. The deviled eggs and wings were great. The steaks tasted like they were boiled instead of grilled; maybe that was the method, ut it was unexpected. The real issue was the lack of training in the service and host staff. They may have been hamstrung because the Kentucky Derby was playing on TVs in the bar, but everything took a lot of time to come out because of that. Lastly, take your masks off, we could not understand what any of the staff was saying.

We were greeted as soon as we arrived, enjoyed a delicious beverage while we waited for our table, and has the most amazing meal with the help of Kendal, our amazing server for the evening! Thank you all so much!

    The reservations were easily made and it seemed pretty busy. The drink options were nice and server was very attentive. During the mid of our meal I noticed others getting served before us that arrived after us, and was told of a computer glitch but when my food arrived half the order seemed almost cold. The food overall was still good and will consider it when in the city again

    The food was good and the space is beautiful. It's a little noisy because it's a big open space, so not a great spot if hearing people in an issue. The service wasn't very good. We were there for 45 minutes without water, and we had to ask for it again when our food was served. Additionally, a server asked if I wanted more coffee, but never returned with it. My dining companion had to flag down someone carrying a coffee pot. I understand that many restaurants have their B-team serving Sunday brunch, but service was disappointing. Then the check came with a choice of 20%, 22%, or 25% tip - for minimal/bad service. I probably would not recommend brunch at Succotash PRIME to a friend based on my experience.

    I just don't know where to start! The food was amazing -- we had the Southern Sampler, and frankly, there was enough food for four of us (we brought many packages home). Deliciously prepared, timing was perfect, servers were gracious and quite helpful, and the smooth jazz duo an extra bonus. Oh, my goodness, it was such a treat to dine here!

    They tried hard but missed on a few scores. Wanted a romantic evening but it was not because the server hovered trying to please. Tried recommended dinner and wasn't a hit with me. Given a drink on the house but it was on my bill. One of those nights the reality did not come close to the expectation. The manager gave us a few perks but the overall experience wasn't one of pleasure or satisfaction. The food quality was good but the dining experience was a miss. Should have followed my gut and left but I didn't want to disappoint my date.

    We ordered "The Taste of the South" and the food was excellent and filling. We wound up taking some of the food home. The meal is well worth the money. The only complaint I have was that the waffles were not hot. This also happened at the Succotash at National Harbor. One of the hostesses needed a bit more work on her people skills but except for that, the staff was excellent. I liked how the servers worked as a team with bringing food and clearing the table. They all worked efficiently and professionally. Our waiter recommended a drink that was positively delicious and was "supposed" to be sugar free. For the location, the price and the atmosphere, Succotash is worth a visit.

    The decor is great and the restaurant is clean. Service was great as well, except from one person at the reception who was a bit grumpy. I must say, though, the food left much to be desired. The cuisine is southern with a Korean touch and I was not impressed. My friend and I ordered the Taste The South and the only good things on it were the deviled eggs, the shrimp in the shrimp and grits (the grits themselves did not have that familiar southern comfort you'd expect), the truffle cakes we had for dessert were tasty as well and the smoked chicken wings were nice but a little salty. We were very disappointed with the taste of several of the dishes. The rib-eye steak is just sliced meat on a bare plate with nothing else except a sauce that does nothing to add flavor. The pecan pie that comes as dessert was so hard to bite into. I struggled with one bite and couldn't finish the rest of it. It's a no for me.

    Very good upscale southern food. We all very much enjoyed what we good (were with a group of 3 other friends). Very cool indoor space as well. Food took a little longer than we would have liked, but the restaurant was very busy and we probably wouldn't have noticed if we weren't rushing to be somewhere. Definitely give yourself at least 90 minutes to eat and drink though if you plan on going for dinner. Also, check out the happy hour deals - they are fantastic.
