    Excellent value for a five course tasting menu. Will return again. Staff is a little-green, and have to make all the cocktails (no bartender). Chef pairs classic French technique with local ingredients. Some misses on incorporation of asian-inspired flavors, but overall excellent dishes. Did not try the a'la carte menu, but options looked tasty. Glad to see they survived the pandemic!

    One of the original fine food establishments in DC has weathered all challenges and is back with creative dishes using local ingredients. We forget the originals and in this case you will miss out if you do not return

    The entire experience was wonderful beginning to end! The food and service rivaled the most expensive of restaurants we have been to, at 1/3 the cost. My husband even had to look at the bill twice to make sure everything we ordered was on the bill, as he expected a much high tab for the food/service/ambiance. Absolutely everything was delicious. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We did have to wait a bit for our desserts, as that was their peak time and all the tables suddenly filled up. But the ambiance was so nice, and we were not in a rush, that we did not mind waiting. And the dessert was worth the wait! We will definitely come back here again. We went for our anniversary, and were made to feel very special. (Of note, the signage outside is very nondescript, and we had to look carefully for the restaurant name.)

    Third time we've been to this restaurant on our wedding anniversary. Very good service and very good food. A slight notch down for ambiance this time because the quiet niche we were in smelled like someone had been smoking there recently -- but could be a ventilation issue from the cigar shop next door.

    I was really looking forward to dining at Corduroy, but came away disappointed in both the food and the service. The menu states that they can accommodate food preferences, but all of the vegetarian options had some sort of meat in them which they could not remove. The waiter continued to tell one of us about meat options even when she expressed that she would not be eating meat. The tuna steak was riddled with connective tissue that forced a massacre in order to eat. It was not the right cut to be called a steak. The waiter was nice but forgetful and didnt check back until it was past time to rectify errors.

    Visiting from Seattle, so we wanted to choose some special dining places close to our hotel during our visit. This place was superb. Very interestingly seasoned dishes with real culinary excellence shining through every dish we had. The service was great. Highly recommend this place. Wish there was a place in Seattle like this. (And PS: For some reason my profile here says I am from London. I visit there often, but I really am from Seattle.)

    The tuna tartar was excellent with crispy shallots adding nice texture. The tonkatsu was new for me and very enjoyable. The cabbage could be a bit tart for some, but I tend to like the flavor.

    Quite possibly the worst service I've ever experienced especially for a more upscale place. The food was ok, but not good enough to be all but ignored throughout our entire time there. This was a special occasion for our family so I had to make the most of it, but they very nearly took the "special" out of our evening altogether. Disappointing doesn't even cover it, very very very unhappy.
