Since our early days as a tea room, we’ve been a respite for locals and visitors alike, offering a haven for conversation and memorable cuisine. The tradition continues as our culinary team has curated an inventive and elevated menu through New American cuisine while paying homage to the beloved dishes that have been served at the Tabard Inn for years.

Executive Chef Matthew Zafrir came to the Tabard in 2023, bringing with him experience from various fine dining restaurants around D.C. such as minibar by José Andrés, Cranes, Revelers Hour, as well as Woodberry Kitchen in Baltimore, MD. He also shares the Tabard's longstanding commitment to sourcing ingredients locally.

Join us for a meal on our covered patio or one of our intimate dining rooms. Or enjoy drinks and light fare in our historic fireplace lounge, where you can enjoy our creative cocktails! A DC institution since 1922, we look forward to offering our guests all the comforts of a home away from home.

    This is such a gem. Every time I bring business associates here for dinner, they are so very pleasantly surprised, immediately love the place and start taking pictures to come back with their significant other. This occasion didn’t fail to accomplish the same tradition… haha Service is excellent, food is exceptional, drinks are great. The ambiance and the space are the best part! Thanks for another memorable night.

    While the food is really excellent — pan seared scallops - it is the service from servers like Gigi that earn the accolades. She is a superb representative — attentive but not intrusive. Well done!

    This was my first visit to the Tabard Inn. A friend had already arrived and was in the Lounge as we were all there for the jazz show. The entire experience (e.g., the food, the service, the ambiance and the show) was just wonderful. I love that they have valet parking, though many people were able to Metro or Uber.

    It’s always a great experience to dine at the Tabard Inn. We recently visited for dinner and we requested a table on the patio. There were only a few tables occupied so they were able to accommodate us. It’s a very nice walled-in garden with plants, overhead fans and skylights for a very pleasant ambiance. The service has always been excellent and our recent visit was no exception. Service is prompt, friendly and professional. The food was very good. I had the chicken which was cooked perfectly, bones-in but that was okay. My wife had the scallops wrapped in prosciutto and she exclaimed how much she loved them. The sides were more than enough and were very tasty. Parking is non-existent so we took Lyft from our hotel nearby that dropped us off in front of the restaurant. I inquired about valet parking and was told that it was $55! That seemed a bit too expensive for me. But, parking is quite a hassle and expensive in DC so not totally surprised. The food prices were a little more than moderately high but the quality and overall experience made it worth the cost in my opinion. It isn’t a place that I would do on a regular basis but it’s fun and enjoyable for the occasional special event.

    Very creative and delicious from start to end. Highly recommend oysters, tomato gazpacho, rock fish and honey cake for dessert.
