Sette Osteria - 14th St

Italian
Sette is Italian for seven, the traditional "lucky" number. The restaurant design is comfortable with a traditional Italian tone, exposed bricks, and with a great " warm feel and flow." Sette Osteria is a destination place for people as well as a place for people walking in the area to come in and enjoy.

Decor: Sette Osteria has an open pizza station viewable by guests.

The best decor in a restaurant is people. Windows give guests a view of the active passing scenes on busy 14th street. And, people walking by are able to view a very inviting and appealing restaurant. The decor is rustic and appealing but still carries a theme of sophisticated Italian culture and international buzz.

Pathetic that a business requires its patrons to be injected with a substance and doesn't even bother to mention it on their website.

Very, very slow service. We sat at our table for 35 minutes before a server greeted us and poured our water. Not the servers fault - there was only one waitress for the entire restaurant. It was a really terrible dinner experience!

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He would eat alfredo every day if he could. haha. He loved it! Restaurant was clean, everyone was polite. Both of our meals were amazing. I did order a drink on a whim that I wasn't thrilled with but that's likely just my personal taste. We would definitely come back! Thanks.

When I made this reservation I made a note that it was a special occasion, since it was the anniversary of our first date. Unfortunately when we got there there was only one table open, in the middle and right by the door, and it was very cold out. Unless every other table there was also a reservation I don’t see why a restaurant would put a reservation for a special occasion in what was arguable one of the worst seats in the house. It was upsetting that they did not have something better available upon our arrival. The meal overall was great and we appreciate the service once we were seated.

The service was okay. It was more than half empty and service was still super slow. We sat at our table for 15 minutes before being greeted. The food was bland, boring and honestly tasted like it was a microwave dinner.

The Cacio pepe was mushy and had no pepper in it.
The vodka sauce was also mushy and tasteless.
Bread was great.
Way overpriced for the quality of the food.

The service was awful. I know you are understaffed, but that cant be the excuse. It took 30 minutes to get our order. Never got bread. Never got water. Took another 15 minutes to get the check.

Sette is nice inside and out. We were a table of 7 in an empty restaurant at 10 am and they squished us in a corner table of 6 but at least they offered to add another table. The drinks and food were good especially for the price but I think they could have elevated the flavors of each dish especially the Uovo Cotto which was just ok. I had high hopes and it was good but wished it was a little better especially because of the great location and the ambiance. Would definitely try again

There was no air condition inside. Only one waitress to work the patio and the few people that wanted to deal with the heat inside the restaurant. If you are unable to staff your restaurant maybe you should consider just having takeout. It’s not fair to the staff or the patrons.

The food and wine were perfect! The only issue was that we specifically requested outdoor seating in our reservation, but were seated indoors - it was by an open window, but I wish that they were able to accommodate the initial request.

Went here for dinner on Labor Day. The food was great, but the restaurant had our waitress waiting on all(!) 7+ outside tables. I can understand that restaurants are generally understaffed at this time, especially during a holiday weekend. I’ve had brunch here before and the service was great - so I’m chalking this up to a one time anomaly.

We sat and waited for over 20 minutes with no one to acknowledge or take an order. When the server came towards our table and I attempted to speak … she looked and walked right by us to take care of a table sat 10-15 minutes after us . We left and went to another restaurant and had a great experience.

The food was bland and yet somehow incredibly oily. There was no air conditioning inside so we had to sit outside in the humid, summer DC heat. Way overpriced for what it was
