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.”

    While this restaurant is attached to a lovely hotel, the experience was rather average for our Saturday afternoon brunch. We had to wait a long time for the weight staff to address us initially, definitely they were not attentive to the food that we ordered I had to ask several times for them to come back with plates and coffee. The food was not creative or anything to write home about… Just the basics. I just don’t see why this place has any type of reputation.
    The PembrokeResponded on April 9, 2024

Your feedback is important, and we will address the issues you raised with our team to ensure improvements are made. We hope you'll consider giving us another chance to provide you with the exceptional dining experience we strive for. Warm regards, The Pembroke team
