I’ve been going to this restaurant for nearly a decade. The food never disappoints and the staff is incredible. The new location is still close to the White House, and now has a much more space at the bar. Kudos to Todd and Ellen for their business acumen and kindness, keeps folks coming back for years. Here’s to 25 more!

Visiting our son in DC and took grandparents. After a weekend of sightseeing we enjoyed an amazing Sunday breakfast at The Roberts. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The Omni property is beautiful and we plan to stay here next time we visit DC.
