    My wife and I visited Trummer's restaurant for the first time for her birthday. The entrance to the restaurant into the bar area was clean and bright. Our hostess wished her a Happy Birthday on arrival and sat us in the room next to the open balcony. It was early in the evening, and the skylights added a natural light to the dining area. The service was impeccable, and the food was excellent. I had the Rockfish and she enjoyed the Short rib. Both dishes were reasonably priced. We have many times eaten at more expensive restaurants that did not provide the same experience. It will be a pleasure to return to Trummer's in the near future. Our thanks to the staff for a memorable evening.

    The good and beverages were excellent. The server was MIA for quite awhile though after we got our entrees. So, we didn’t order a second round of drinks and felt rushed through dessert. But, again, the food was very good!

    I love the Sage cocktail. This is the only place I order a cocktail actually and Sage is a winner. Yum lime juice. The locally grown beet salad was amazing, as was the tagliatelle with lamb. Rockfish was slightly disappointing and I was not a fan of the carrot hummus underneath. Overall, we really like Trummers, and I do like that the menu changes so we can try new things.

    Very disappointing . Surprised by the poor quality of the appetizer and entree. Stale bread and entrees were average. Not much flavor in either dish. Very small portions. Will not be returning anytime soon. Service was very good, though!

    If you are looking for a nice and pleasant meal, and are comfortable with a higher end priced (but not expensive for what you receive) experience, this place is recommended by me. Ps, the Bone Marrow appetizer is amazing!

    Tuesday is the new Saturday! Thank you to the team at Trummer’s for a perfectly prepared meal and a superlative dining experience. From the stunning and delicious first courses — more barbecue bone marrow and jam, please! — to the seared tuna floating atop a silky purée and kissed by succulent jus, it was special from the first bite to the last Viennese “donut”. The deft touch in the kitchen is never heavy-handed, but always just right. The beet salad with chevre created newly-minted beet lovers at our table and the pop of sour cherry with the duck sang out with a perfect tang. Lamb tagliatelle was an umami comfort bomb. Cheers to the mixologist for their award-winning cocktails to kick things off in style. A long and leisurely dinner with friends on a Tuesday is life as it should be, at last. Can’t wait to go back for more!

    Excellent restaurant with a wonderful, contemporary decor and exemplary service. I made my reservation on-line and simply checked "anniversary" as the special occasion. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted with many "happy anniversaries" which continued throughout the excellent service. Complimentary champagne and other items, which were special touches. Food was not outstanding, but still very good, and the service was superb. My only wish is that they had a more diverse menu.

    Salmon tartare on deep fried chips were terrible. Duck confit was dried out. Suspected it was deep fried not pan sautéed. Waiter was very good. We were sitting in an area off the main floor in front of a storage area.

    Underwhelming experience at Trummers. For the amount we paid, the quality and flavors of the dishes fell far below our expectations. Very pricey entrees that did not deliver the value we expected. Really disappointed in the desserts, with chocolate cheesecake that had an overly dense texture, and a pound cake that was incredibly dry. Unfortunately, the descriptions of the meals were far more interesting than the meals themselves. Ambiance was nice though…

    Food was very good and the happy hour prices and wine were a fantastic bargain. Service was good but a bit haphazard. I felt bad that our waiter seemed to be the only one serving but he had a few helpers. Will definitely go back. Food was very good and the combinations were interesting and delicious.

    Once our favorite restaurant in the DC area - no longer. Service: fantastic. What a great wait staff! Ambiance: good. we love the restaurant and bar - kinda quirky and fun. Food: it's just not that good. we didn't enjoy our meal. this was the prix fixe menu for Mother's Day and we tried a little bit of everything. We did agree that the short ribs were good; otherwise the meal was not up to the price (or what we had once expected of drummer's). I think Trummer's might be on borrowed time - living on a legacy established long ago. Clifton is adorable, but it isn't worth the drive for Trummer's.
