Set in the Waldorf Astoria Washington DC, The Bazaar is the culmination of a 30-year dream for Chef José Andrés. Drawing inspiration from this iconic location, which first opened in 1899 and served as DC’s General Post Office until 1914, The Bazaar is a multi-level destination reinvented with avant-garde and Americana-inspired decor.

    I’m sad to say the food just wasn’t great. Zaytinya is always a favorite so I was looking forward to this so much. The ambience and service were wonderful.

    I will start with 5 stars for the service. I accidentally booked the wrong day and when I showed up 3 days early the hostess graciously accommodated my party within about 15 minutes. Next, our server Danny, was the perfect amount of attentive while leaving us to catch up and enjoy the scenery and food. The ambiance is bright and cozy, and its fun to sit upstairs overlooking the beautiful WA lobby. Despite the prestige, there was welcoming lack of pretentiousness in the space, which was appreciated. Thank you to Jose Andres for putting his restaurants on InKind to make them accessible to more people. I will certainly be back! My only feedback is that the cocktails are priced very high and did not impress me.

    We had an over-the-top experience at The Bazaar last evening. All of the staff were terrific. Our server was spectacular. The food was equally as great. The environment was beautiful and lively. I was wary about the noise level because two in our party wear hearing aids, but even at our table in the balcony overlooking the big open space of the floor below we were fine. We were ready for the prices because it was a special occasion.

    Artistic interpretation of tapas. Service impeccable although we were seated by the bus stand. Bao bun more like mini hamburger roll, although the porkbelly very tender and perfectly sauced. I was disappointed with the eggplant because it was a slice of either Japanese eggplant or something same sized. I did not ask but the vegetables were near the mains on the menu, so I made the mistake of assuming it was a vegetarian main option. Very well prepared and presented, it was tender and flavorful but not enhanced by the garnish of pickled onion or the smear of what appeared to be harissa. My husband had the vermicelli “paella” which was very briny and quite good. Desserts were divine. Interior design lovely and spacious for an urban restaurant.

    Food and presentation was excellent! We enjoyed everything and will be back again. The service was mostly good, but didn't match the quality of the food.
