Our kitchen serves simple, honest food that reflects a devotion to quality and responsibility made possible by partnerships with like-minded farmers, artisans and growers who provide products that are sustainably sourced, whenever possible.

Art and Soul exudes true warmth and hospitality. Playful regional elements such as hand-painted farm signs and traditional folk art are also used throughout the space in honor of the D.C. restaurants regional influences.

    We stayed at the Yotel Hotel and had several meals at Art and Soul including breakfast and dinner. It was a great dining experience with good food and a good service at a reasonable price.

    Easy walk from our hotel, Art and Soul is part of the DC Yotel. A great selection of starters the range from octopus to cheese plates and the main courses are a clever blend of southern cooking fused with newer indigents and techniques. Great selection of local beer on tap too. Note, if you are NOT a guest at the Yotel, you may need help accessing the restroom as Art and Soul does not have its own facilities and the lobby restrooms are locked down to guests at the Yotel.

    This was our first time here and we will definitely be back! Service was great considering it was Mother's Day. We got our food quickly and our server was attentive. It was very easy to get to and there was close street parking. All in all, it was a great experience.

    We came here for our puppy dog’s first birthday because they have a special menu just for dogs. We thought that was super cute and we wanted to do something fun to celebrate with her out on the town. Service was excellent! We sat out on the patio and they treated us and our puppy dog like VIPs. At one point it started to drizzle on us and they even moved the umbrellas over for us so that we didn’t have to leave (dogs can’t move inside). Will note though that even though they have a special dog menu, it didn’t really seem like many folks actually bring their dogs along. It is a little more upscale than we had initially expected it would be, so maybe inviting animals along doesn’t exactly jive with the restaurant demographic in practice. Overall we had a nice time, but the food on the people menu was a little too fancy for us and a little sad to say it was not 100% worth the extra fancy price tag flavor-wise—however the ambiance and service largely evened out the experience. If you want fancy fancy, this is a good spot.

    Great restaurant, great food. At little mix up with service (seated us but didn’t assign a waiter). Took us telling them and a 15 min wait for them to figure it out but once they did, the service was good. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food, very good. Only suggestion is to serve the syrup on the side for the Chicken and Waffle dish. Since they pour the syrup on in the kitchen, the waffle is soggy by the time it gets to your table. Couldn’t enjoy it.

    I ordered the bourbon with onions syrup, sounds weird but it was Devine. The cheese board was yum, favorites were the sheeps milk and blue cheese. The handmade spaghetti and mushrooms was so good and comforting. My friend had the crispy duck breast, she enjoyed it and ate every bite. I thought she was going to lick the plate. Sad we had no room for dessert.

    I’m still not sure how I’ve only just discovered this restaurant…The service was impeccable, every menu option was delicious and beautifully plated, and no detail was overlooked in making us feel welcomed. We opted for outdoor seating and the staff were super-accommodating in making sure we were comfortable, adjusting the torches and warmers. I’ll be back!

    Great food and environment. But i really dislike the seating concept, and being very close to the next table. So while the space is very nice looking there was no sense of privacy or personal space. But I would still return for the food.

    Very good restaurant with a creative menu. However, if you’re the least bit hungry don’t get the shrimp and grits. Three out of five us ordered it and agreed that a cat eats more. I had to eat very slowly just to avoid being finished before my colleague put ketchup on his burger.
