 (Washington DC)·Dined 2 days ago

My family recently visited Walnut Grill for Sunday brunch to celebrate my father's birthday.
Pluses:
- The omelet station is decent, including the prime rib carved at the station. And the cook/chef making the omelets couldn't have been nicer.
- The fruit, including cantaloupe and honeydew, was surprisingly tasty for being out-of-season.
Minuses:
- The rest of the offerings were limited and average at best. For example, the French toast and pancakes were cold and dry. Our server was apologetic and offered to have the kitchen make fresh French toast and pancakes, but she didn't follow through.
- Gosh, the ambiance borders on depressing.
Bottom line: Though I can't say I'd recommend Walnut Grill, it's not the worst place. We walked away unsatisfied, but agreed that "at least it's not expensive."

Our waitress was really so distracted to the point of forgetting two people's soups and then when reminded she brought the wrong soups. Her service was slow although I think she was doing the best she could. All four of us agreed that our appetizers which were our meal essentially were not good but here again we ordered breaded zucchini planks which are not terribly healthy to begin with. I have had nice meals there before....this was just an off night.
I may not go back there again. Too many other choices of restaurants.

My wife and I are regular customers. We take advantage of the veterans day on Tuesdays which is very nice, but we come on other days, also. My wife and her girlfriends come for a girl's day lunch occasionally and are always pleased. Keep up the good work. There is always room for a nice neighborhood establishment like yours. P.S. the servers and the manager are always nice.

at first glance restaurant does not look impressive. HOWEVER, the food was excellent and the service was great. My husband had a great steak and I enjoyed a mixed grill. Wednesday is half price on a bottle of wine and we had a very good wine. If you live nearby, this is a great place to go for good food.

I've gone there many times and have never had a bad experience with their food until 12/13/17. My fish and fries tasted as if they had been soaking in grease all night long and my husband's corned beef sandwich was very skimpy on the meat. It definitely wasn't up to their normal standards.

We are a frequent customer to Walnut Grill and always enjoy it. This time they were very busy and we had to ask for a server since no one seemed to be assigned to our table. We still felt a bit forgotten even when we finally received our dinners. But our waitress made up for it by taking our beverages off the tab. I know every place has their off nights, but at least they tried to acknowledge it. It won't stop us from going back.

Overall enjoyed the food... steak was very good... wife had beat salad with crab cake... son had fish tacos... a bit disappointed with change in menu selection.... they took the lamb dinner off the menu. This was truely the reason I chose to dine there . The restaurant had an avg crowd... a menu I had had food stuck to it and was rather sticky and there was broken glass on the floor next to our table... which was cleaned when noticed by our waiter.

Have been here several times and never disappointed with the food nor service. Went out of my comfort zone on this visit and had a seasonal special, Pacific Rim. A nice blend of tastes and textures, and a lovely presentation (should have taken a photo). Glad I went out of my comfort zone. I know the seasonal dishes may not be unique to each Walnut Grill, but in any case, compliments to the chef on the interesting combination of tastes and textures, and the lovely presentation.

My husband & I had a really nice dinner. We both had the crab cakes, seasonal vegetables and a salad. We started with the stuffed banana peppers and they were tasty with spicy sausage but not too spicy and sauce and mozzarella cheese...so cheesy. The crab cakes were some of the best! Chunks upon chunks of real crab, delicious! Salads are a little small but the bread was soft and then crunchy on the outside. My only complaint were the side veggies, the squash was over cooked and mushy but the broccoli & green beans were barely cooked. Didn't ruin the meal but would have made it perfect had they been better. We'll be back, everything else, including Kimi, was great!

Normally this a lunch place for us. Slightly wider menu selection than most. Fresh ingredients, etc. This time we tried it for dinner. I had the NY strip, and wife had pork tenderloin. Both had the fingerling potatoes and the veggies. Great pieces of meat, done perfectly. Sides were exceptional. So was the house-made crème brûlée. We were pleasantly surprised. Just a notch or two better than expected. Jason was friendly, efficient, and helpful. Good meal!
