The food was fresh, tasty and enough to take home. It was also seemingly served with “love,”’I.e., concern for our happiness.

It wouldn't take much to make the food good, but that shortfall in effort makes a big difference.

The wait staff were friendly and accommodating. The salad was fresh and home made dressing was tasty. The entrees were amazing--shrimp entree and best spinach raviolo ever. Too full for dessert.

This was perhaps my 11th visit to Rosemary's Thyme. It is a premier place to take Hawaii's Congressional Interns with a guest speaker. The food is very different from that which we experience in Hawaii. The ambiance is perfect for our group. I plan to be back every year!

It calls itself a neighborhood bistro and .... it is!.. I found two dishes worth asking for the recipe - lentil soup and hummus - both of which showed an appreciative use of lemon to accent the food. The remainder of our orders shrimp and pizza were from a well-informed kitchen. A nicely done coffee-chocolate flan for dessert. Pizza crust was a little thinker than I like, but nicely cooked and good flavored ingredients. Wine was fairly priced with decent mid-range options. Our server was sweet and attentive.

We loved our dinner at RT. The service was outstanding and the waiter went out of his way to help us order from the Happy Hour menu as it ends at 7 PM and we arrived at 6:45. House cocktail menu is unique and refined. Tapas and dinner menu items were outstanding and well worth the price. I will be back again.

I recently had brunch there on a Sunday morning. The place was quiet and relaxed, which was pleasant and allowed for having a conversation. We sat at a table by the large windows. Food was good and simple. Service was excellent. It wasn't too pricey.

Has a reasonably priced and varied menu. All that we chose was prepared well. We opted to sit indoors unlike most of the patrons the evening we went, so we had the indoor seating area largely to ourselves. Conversation was easy under the circumstances, but that may not be indicative of what one might encounter if most of the diners were indoors. The staff was attentive and seemed eager to please. We will return without hesitation.

As always, a great atmosphere. You fell welcome. Tonight I had the bronzno with arugula. The fish was grilled and very flavorful. My colleague had blackened salmon on the Med salad. He said it was prepared very well, with good blackened spice. A very good meal for a good value in this neighborhood gem.

We went to Rosemary’s for a bachelorette party. The staff was incredible, especially our server Eileen! We sat outside and enjoyed the neighborhood. The food was fresh and perfectly portioned. I loved the artichoke and mushroom pizza. We will be back!!

We went for a Sunday brunch. It was very quiet and we got a nice outdoor table. The food was yummy. I had the Spinach Borek which was delicious and came with spicy breakfast potatoes and fruit. Others in my party had traditional eggs, meat and toast and were pleased with their choices. Attentive waiter and good coffee

We found this cute restaurant and decided to try it on Mother's Day since there was availability! Delicious! The service was great and the food was delicious! My wife even ordered off the menu and the chef was able to accommodate her request. The serving size was just right and the food was well-prepared. We will return to this restaurant on one of our next trips to DC. Make sure to try the bruschetta duo! Reminded me of Italy for sure!

Wonderful service, very good food. We loved the hummus and the dumplings (which are like a ravioli). We split a dual kabob (chicken and adana) and both were very good, though could have used a bit more veggies. We think we missed out by not choosing their flatbread, however, as it looked amazing! We'll be back to try.

My wife and I shared the calamari appetizer which was a perfect starter. Rosemary's prepares the calamari in a tomato based sauce and cooked with spinach and garlic. It’s both a delicious dish and a welcome change from the deep fried version served at many a restaurant. The branzino main course consisted of two large pieces of branzino, light broiled and served with kale. The branzino was cooked just enough to leave it moist and mouthwatering. I enjoyed my margarita pizza, a regular favorite for me. In addition, the price of an entrée is reasonable compared to some of the more expensive choices that offer food of a similar high quality.
