Sidecar is a semi-private (nonmembers welcome if space is available) dining room that exudes the comfort of an 'old boys club' and serves an upscale menu of steaks & seafood. The long banquets and elegant tables run the entire length of the room and Bank of England chairs immediately envelope one in a unique sense of clubby comfort. An extensive wine collection, personal attention and the quiet appeal of a unique refuge complete the experience. SIDECAR accepts reservations for lunch and dinner and accepts private event bookings for parties of 25 to 300.

The downstairs restaurant is an elegant, roomy, and quiet setting to conduct business. The concierge and wait staff were excellent. Broad menu selections. Chef will accommodate special requests. Be prepared for low lighting even at lunchtime; so bring your spectacles if you have any trouble reading menus. It was nice on a 100 degree summer day! My only criticism is it seemed a bit musty since the last time I dined there (a faint bar smell).

Food and service were excellent ! You have flavored teas, why not offer sweetened black tea? Visitors from the south would love it, and it is an easy addition!

we made a reservation at open table.com and we're well satisfied with the reservation process. Valet parking was used and we were satisfied with that process. Traffic on K Street, however can be gridlocked so recommend Metro access if possible. we had a crab cake appetizer and the calamari appetizer both were very nicely prepared and exceeded our expectations. For dinner we chose a filet, shrimp n grits, and the daily special which happened to be lasagna-OUTSTANDING. must ask for bread. no happy hour drink specials were available however the happy hour oysters seem to be a phenomenal deal. restaurant was not that busy hence the noise level was low; suspect it would be quite a bit louder had there been many more tables

great business lunch spot. solid food. they make sure your iced tea stays full but besides that they pretty much leave you alone which is ideal for a business lunch.
