Excellent. I had (I cannot remember their name) roast beef with gravy over cheese and french fries. Very good, too big a serving. My wife the “Tip Top Chop”. A delicious salad with kale, quinoa, etc topped with cold smoked salmon. It was the best.
The service was very informative and prompt.
The only problem was I did not have enough room for dessert.
Good food, friendly service, reasonable portions. My only complaint was the noise level. High ceilings and hard surfaces make hearing people around a larger table very challenging.
Pozole was perfection, great artsy ambiance. Perfect for brunch with my college aged daughter. We shared soup and fried chicken sandwich, both amazing! Outstanding customer service, absolutely above and beyond.
The food here was delicious and just what I was looking for. Everyone in my party ordered something something different from the menu and we each enjoyed our meal very much and agreed we would come back again for more. The entrees we ordered were as follows: Chicken and Waffles, French Dip Poutine, Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich, and the Eggs Benedict which were all exquisite! The fizz drink options are also great!
Over priced and unhealthy food
Alll excellent except for you don’t have a full bar selection, such as Scotch. I had a beer instead
Food was good and arrived very fast. I would return!
Been hearing about unconventional diner for a while now and finally tired it. It was delicious! Split the burger and the chicken sandwich with my husband and it was amazing! We also had the blueberry pancakes and our friends loved their s”eggs”y sandwich and biscuit and jam”edict and they loved it! Cocktails were delicious! Will definitely be going back!
Great food options, they have something for everyone. The eggs and bacon dessert was AMAZING!!
The service and food were fantastic.
What an amazing experience trying Unconventional’s brunch today. Loved every minute of it. Blueberry pancakes and French toast were unreal. I’ll be back many times and will send many friends! Thanks chef Dave!
From the snacks to the entree, the food was really good. I had the French dip pappardelle and it was so flavorful and filling. Would definite get it again.
The food was excellent and service very attentive. Our daughter asked essentially for a deconstructed meatloaf from the menu and they happily obliged.
Here in D.C. on a business trip. Had some time before my conference started and saw this was located only a few blocks from my hotel. The online reviews were great so I decided to give them a try. Was not disappointed! Food was great and the atmosphere has a light and airy modern feel to it. Check these guys out if you’re in town!
I came in for breakfast - got the hash and a side of lamb sausage. Both were superb. Will be back for dinner the next time I’m in town!
My kids and I both love Unconventional Diner. The food is always good and they can adapt more dishes for kids/teens. You should make a reservation as to not have to wait because it can be very busy. Only drawback is the wait time on waiters.
Breakfast/Brunch was delicious, great menu filled with unique dishes. Incredible drink menu as well.
The food’s amazing and different. Brunch and dinner menus are great. Will bring new people there again
Too many things on the brunch menu to pick from so we just had to try a little of everything. All of them were great - although the Bloody Mary was WAY too spicy, even with the extra tomato juice they added to it. Of all the dishes, I would say the best was the french toast. Between the amazing bourbon caramel sauce and the toasted marshmallows on top, would have been all too happy just to eat that. The lebanese rice was also great
Great food! I found some unique dishes that I would definitely come back to get. The Moroccan grits and Caribbean grits were a hit!
Kelly was great in making sure we had everything we needed. The food was great.
First class from the moment we came til the moment we left.
Inspired plate presentation. Excellent Taste. Kind service. Great vibes. Well done. A person in our party said, "The food is Rich." Not a strike against. Quite tasty.
The food was very flavorful and eclectic. My wife had a nice birthday experience.😘
Server did no intro. Came to the table and said “what can I get you?” We ordered a bottle of wine and there was no presentation. We ordered an app and never got it. We’ve been a few times and the server just was not there mentally. Food is always amazing, but I do appreciate feeling appreciated. We be back, but....
Another fabulous dinner at Unconventional Diner!
All 3 of us loved our meals, and the service was attentive and friendly as always. Unconventional Diner keeps knocking it out of the park as a place with a fun high energy vibe, and consistent good service and fabulous food.
Lots of good choices on the menu for me (omniverous) and my guest (pescatarian). Our server was personable, knowledgeable, and the staff allowed us to linger beyond the dessert. The place was rocking on a Wednesday night, so reservations are a must.
George is a pleasant face to see as soon as you enter the restaurant. I loved the service provided by James. Thank you both for another good business lunch at the restaurant.
The food is very good, and I love the concept of elevated diner food. The service was okay, not as attentive as I would have liked, but no major issues. I’ll return, as I enjoyed my meal.
When in doubt, eat at the Unconventional Diner. Just the right amount of choice and always delicious.
Very nice staff and service. Food was very good and price was reasonable. Great location and happy they took reservations.
I'm planning on making a reservation in March when my college friend gets here.
Our server was not interested in making sure we had a nice experience. Bare minimum to take care of our table. Food was good and the restaurant is pretty so it’s unfortunate our dining experience did not match.
Modern take on diner favorites. Even the most picky of eaters will find something on the menu.
Great place for brunch! Great service too! Everything we are was very good
The food at Unconventional Diner is outstanding--and is the reason I keep coming back! However, almost every time I go to Unconventional Diner the service I receive is atrocious. While the food is good and the location is very convenient for me, considering how expensive Unconventional Diner is and how poor the service consistently is, I would not recommend Unconventional Diner.
After happily eating at UC numerous times in the past but not for several months I felt the table service slipped a couple of notches. The server seemed inexperienced, placing things awkwardly in wrong spots and over people's heads although there was ample space to deliver plates and tumblers alongside guests. In contrast UC used to have competent servers.
Great food. Great service.
Great place to eat
