Situated in the bustling heart of Dupont Circle is The Pembroke, a sophisticated dining destination. Featuring contemporary American fare with global influences, The Washington Post’s food critic Tom Sietsema described the experience as “cut from a different cloth." The Pembroke’s stunning design by Martin Brudnizki features plush velvet coral-toned banquettes around glossy marble tables, cream-paneled walls with playful artwork, and boasts panoramic views of the neighborhood, while a seasonal terrace offers al fresco dining from spring to fall. The marble-topped bar is a bright and airy nod to cocktail bars of the 1950s and features classic drinks with a twist and a selection of fine wines. Reserve your table today to see how “The Pembroke makes Dupont Circle a destination again.”

    The food and service were both excellent, as was the ambiance. Some of the dishes were a bit pricey, though delicious. The staff was very accommodating as we had six for drinks then only four for dinner. The candle for my husband’s birthday was a nice touch, though most restaurants provide a birthday dessert gratis.

    We were so excited to come to DC and experience brunch at the Pembroke. Unfortunately, we were given a table right next to the entrance and wait staff station which was dark and noisy. It took away from our enjoyment. We made this reservation weeks in advance so it was unfortunate. The food was tasty with large portions. Our waiter was awesome ( Jee).

    Excellent restaurant. Superb service from start to finish. We started off with the tuna tartare and some truffle pasta - both were so tasty. For our entrees, I had the salmon and my mom had the sea bass. We both agreed that both fishes were some of the best we ever had. Excellent wine list. Loved the decor of the restaurant. We were not rushed and our waiters were so gracious.

    Lovely spot in the Dupont Circle Hotel. I don't usually choose hotel restaurants but this was a perfect spot for a quiet lunch with a friend. Our server, Miguel, was fantastic - very helpful, thoughtful, and just the right amount of time spent at our table. The GM (don't have his name) was also very nice - funny and attentive from start to finish. The food was very good, I had a salad with salmon on it, and my friend had the crispy salmon lunch. Highly recommend if you need a classy, quiet spot in downtown DC.

    We had the most wonderful experience at the Pembroke! This was our first trip to DC in a while and we were celebrating our anniversary. The wine expert Michael was exceptional and entertaining. Our waitress Sarah was kind and made sure that we were enjoying our evening the entire night. We will definitely be back. This was such a wonderful experience.

    Our experience couldn’t have been any better- from the warm greeting as we entered, the superlative service we received (thank you Darko R), the most delicious and thoughtfully prepared meals- and the relaxing atmosphere- all made for a truly wonderful evening. It was our first time at The Pembroke- and as we rode home, there was no doubt that we had found the date-night spot we’ve been looking. Thank you Pembroke staff for a really memorable evening.

    The five of us (four who had not dined there before) had a wonderful time. The service (Drako?) was great. The food was outstanding! We ordered a meat dish, a chicken dish, the salmon; everything was great! I would highly recommend Pembroke. If you go, make sure to grab drinks in the hotel's Doyle bar before or as a night cap. It will make for a perfect evening!
