The meals were excellent and the service was superb. We dined at Tosca before a play at the Ford Theatre. Most enjoyable.

The pre-dinner martinis were well crafted and served cold. Appetizer was shared with my date and was hot, tasty and a great dinner starter. My dates entrée and excellent grilled swordfish with seasonal vegetables. I enjoyed pasta served with a delightful no-meat red sauce. Our side dish was grilled asparagus. Two double espressos topped off the evening and the service and surrounding were delightful. Not our first trip to Tosca and certainly not our last.

Food and service was good. the place was noisier than I thought it would be. It was my husband's birthday and I had invited him and our daughter. When the bill came and I put my Discover card in ,the waiter said they don't take that card! I was very embarrassed because that is the only card I had. My husband paid.
It was not written anywhere that they do not take Discover card and What if I had taken some other people out? I couldn't have asked them to pay.
Them not taking Discover card should be mentioned on your site or on their site. It was very wrong and disappointing.

I have been to Tosca several times, and it never disappoints. This time, I took some business colleagues for a business dinner. The food was fantastic, as expected. The sommelier made some very good recommendations for wine as well.

I can't say enough how amazing the food was as well as the service. We had a table in the back which was perfect for noise level and out of the way of too much traffic passing by. Chairs were so comfy too.
We split four apps prosciutto (so awesome), tuna tartar, caprese salad and the short rib ravioli ( not listed in apps and waiter said it was the best on menu and was spot on).
Two of us got the scallops for entree and the others had fish and veal chop. Dessert I had chocolate mousse which was not only delicious but so pretty.
An amazing experience.

My husband and I have dinner at Tosca every time we come to DC. Each time is even better than the last, wonderfully and creatively prepared food, excellent wine list and warm friendly service in an elegant setting. This time we had a special veal bolognese pasta, the beef tenderloin entree, a delightful and delicious bottle of Sangiovese from Umbria, and the best chocolate mousse we had ever had bar none for dessert. Our waiter was from Bulgaria, has been in the states for four years, loves working at Tosca and the service was as gracious and impeccable as always.

Tosca still shines after the refresh last year. Perfect service let us enjoy but still make our theater performance. Wonderful Barbaresco by the glass. Meat ravioli could have used more acid, but overall the food was very good with larger portions than I recalled from the past.

Love, love, love Tosca. Always a warm welcome for friends and strangers alike. Service is prompt and efficient but never rushed—unless I request that. The food is memorable. And healthy options abound—as well as old favorites that I cannot resist. The kitchen works to please. I both highly recommend and want to save it for myself. Enjoy.

We loved the pasta. I would not recommend the burrata. It came with anchovies cabbage which we didn’t really like. I think burrata is amazing just by itself. We were also not thrilled about the tiramisu but luckily the waitress recommended another dessert that we loved.
We enjoyed the restaurant overall and if you’re looking for amazing house made pasta, this is the place.

Never understood why it is not included in the top restaurant list of the Washingtonian. A comment on that reviewer, rather than the restaurant!

Most disappointing. We had had nice experiences in the past, but they kept us waiting at least fifteen minutes before seating us. Then, the salads were mediocre, and the pasta Bolognese was sparse and poor. The pasta with seafood was equally not worth eating completely. Poor food and value.

Consistently delicious food and impeccable service. However, the music was playing much too loud, which forced all diners in the restaurant to talk over it, which added to the volume. This created a less-than-ideal environment and detracted from the experience.
