    set for 20 minutes and had to ask for a server. Food servings were small, after I specifically asked about portion sizes because the kitchen was closing and wanted to order enough, and not everything taste that great. This place is not worth the price.

    All our food was overcooked- we ordered risotto- too much butter, sea bass was over cooked, churros were too hard. Our waiter didn’t know the menu, didn’t understand gluten free options..when we asked what came with the impossible meatballs, his answer was a plate. They didn’t have good wine options and they ran out of some of their signature cocktails. I wouldn’t go back. Was very disappointed!

    Where should I begin, Let’s begin with I called to let them know I was running behind. The hostess said it was fine. But never told me that the kitchen closes at 3. So by the time we get their it was about 2:45. I walk in , checked in with hostess stand for them to then tell me the kitchen is closing. So I told them my partner is parking. Here comes my server trying to be understanding but still trying to rush me. So I ask to speak with a manager which was a joke because he tells me as long as I am here it’s fine. Then literally 5 minutes later tells the server to let me know the kitchen is closing. Long story short I very displease with how everything was handled. It definitely could have been handled better. The lack of communication from the front before hand needs to be dealt with. I was so excited to try the restaurant.

    The food was yummy however the tables in the first room ate too close together so you can hear your neighbors whole conversations. The 20% gratuity was not worked for at all. It took 30-40 minutes for them to just bring me a drink menu and another 20 minutes to ask for my drink order.

    I went for lunch during Restaraunt Week. It's an interesting design concept. That was nice. What I DIDN'T like was the AUTOMATIC 20% service charge and $7 charge for a CUP of tea. Not a big ole cup...not a Venti from Starbucks....a cup! AND I had to ask for sweetner. VERY limitrd choices and it wasn't lije it waa some special loose tea in a pot! Just two tea bags, and a cup of hot water. The food is very inventive...a fusion that seemed a bit odd, but isn't too bad. But by the time the bill came, I paid $58 ( I had a $12 glass of wine too)...for lunch. SOOOO not worth it. Because there was the automatic 20% charge, I feel like service was kinda forgotten. I've eaten there, I'm good, no need to go back.

    I felt like the service staff ignored us first, then rushed to get us out of there. Food was overpriced, but tasty. We made a reservation in the Glass House and then were rudely told there is a private party and were sent somewhere else. I thought this was a new trendy spot- but was disappointed.

    The food was good, but the service was bad. It took a long time to get the food, even though the restaurant was not crowded. The waitress was attentive at first, but then disappeared. I had to ask the busboy to get a cup of coffee with my dessert. Since a 20% service charge is automatically included, perhaps there is no incentive to provide better service.

    Not a happy camper. The risotto presented like a fried Chinese rice dish. We sat directly in front of the kitchen and we’re STILL served cold churros. The server treated us as if we were a total hinderance.

    This was my second time at Dirty Habits. This visit we celebrated my sister-in-law’s birthday. The food was delicious and the service was good. I started with the truffle fries as an appetizer (on the menu as a side), the grilled branzino for an entree (serves two) and cheesecake for dessert. I also enjoyed the Longevity cabernet. The ambiance is nice and the decor is chic. If I could change one thing, it would be the location of the restroom. Because the restaurant is in the hotel the restroom is on the third floor, which is a bit secluded with the men and women’s restrooms being right next to each other. As a woman I was uncomfortable with using the restroom alone (better safe).

    Very impressed with the service. We arrived on time but needed to add my son and his girlfriend to our table. They sat us immediately - no problem. Our waitress checked in on us all night. She was genuinely concerned that our dessert took too long to arrive so she sent the manager over to give us the dessert for free. Additional shout out to the support staff - our water glasses were kept full all night by a lovely woman. The experience was lovely. Food was good! Ambiance steller!

    Amazing brunch location. My guest loved their Chix Waffler. My Croque Madame had a fantastic reduced cheese sauce. The side of potatoes were perfectly crispy and garlicky. My only dislike was that there wasn’t any pepper on the table. The Brunch Punch was amazing. 9.9/10

    Served us raw chicken. Instead of taking of off our bill they still charged us for it then brought us champagne as an apology.

    Had to wait 35 minutes for our table (past our reservation time) Extremely slow service (manager was the one who actually got our drink order) Did not provide drink menu - had to ask Main courses came out before finishing apps Only saw our server three times (the entire meal) They don’t tell you tip is included, they highlight the section on the bill but don’t explain, had to ask a bartender for clarification as we couldn’t find the server

    We decided to have lunch here, and honestly it was like going to Disney land during the day. Two things made this experience pretty unpleasant for us immediately, the restaurant was uncleanly I could see many areas hadn’t been cleaned properly and the service was awful. Our waitress was very unfriendly and pretty lazy, she rolled her eyes often and set things down without a care no hospitality whatsoever. The restaurant was practically empty given the time of day we chose to go but for no reason that I can think of, the hostess told us she could not seat us where we requested to be seated because they had a 4 top coming in shortly, which actually never happened. That really annoyed us because where we were sat was right next to the kitchen and walk way. We figured maybe the food and at its ridiculous price point would make up for the bad service but the food was beyond terrible and my friend actually got really sick shortly after we left. I called the restaurant to let them know but no one has reached back out to me as of yet. It’s only been a day but I hope that they at least follow-up. So at best, I think it’s a place to go at night and only for drinks, I wouldn’t recommend it otherwise.

    We dined for their New Years Eve fixed course meal and it was incredibly underwhelming. Food was subpar for a meal that was $150 or more and service was even worse. I was served the wrong wine and after waiting to speak to a server, really any server, I eventually had to get up and just go to the bar to correct it. I think the server didn’t know what I was ordering even though I stated the wine two or three times and pointed at the one on the menu. Our main course was cold and super underwhelming. We had a great time at other restaurants in DC for New Years Eve and were expecting a similar experience but this was nothing close to that. Really regretted dining here, unfortunately. The table next to us chose the cocktail and wine paring that you can upgrade your experience with and they were served their drinks so much later than their courses that it didn’t even make sense at that point and definitely wasn’t worth the price and had to complain. This just wasn’t it.

    Seemed very rushed and disorganized. Not an enjoyable experience. Kept forgetting drinks. Nice enough people but just not worth it at all.

    The ambiance was nice and relaxing. The service was slow and our waitress disappeared several times. Our water never was refilled. The food had to be sent back due to being way too sweet. Flavors did not work well together.

    My daughter and I loved everything about Dirty Habit. Service was excellent, drinks and food was yummy. I only have a 4 star for food because the crab rolls were hyped up but we didn't care for them... no wow factor... just bland. But.... we luvvvved the French onion pho, steak with truffle fries, risotto with scallops.... so so good.
