What Insiders Are Saying
Tabard Inn in Dupont has a reliable brunch, but the patio is a nice spot for dinner (and live jazz), too.
Restaurant was EXTREMELY noisy. Necessary to shout to converse. Service was very slow. Food was mediocre and menu was quite limited. I do not recommend this restaurant and will not return.
Historic building, with their own farm, great cuisine. Worth a visit.
Cozy fireplace area and good drinks. Food was average but fine for brunch. More about the atmosphere and the experience.
One of the best lunches/brunches in DC. High quality food at totally reasonable prices in a cozy setting!
Great wintertime spot. Thanks for the great service David!
The food was great, the service was too. The only reason I gave it a 4 star for the ambiance was because it was a lot louder in there than I thought it would be. Our table was on the larger side since we had 1 less person then we were planning so that may be the reason it was difficult to hear people. The room also seemed a little cramped but given the nature of the space, it made sense. Otherwise, it was a fantastic meal.
Old school atmosphere, great fireplace lounge area, expensive but delicious food. At only 7pm they were out of two of their starters and restaurant area is way too noisy. So go and you can tell your friends, you've been to the famous Tabard Inn.
The Tabard is always a gracious hospitality experience. Quiet, attentive service the is missing in many restaurants.
Excellent food service quality atmosphere! Great Sunday brunch:)
Food (breakfast ) was good but only barely warm. Servers were attentive and efficient, but the hostess was inexcusably curt.
Lovely food, romantic venue, and great service. We made a reservation for 9:15 and enjoyed the quiet.
It was my wife’s birthday, and the waiter and staff all did a great job providing us with a great dinner. Our table was nice, as requested, and the small dessert with a candle was a great bonus. We always love the Tabard Inn. We will definitely return again soon. Thank you for a wonderful evening! Tom
Simply FANTASTIC! Great ambiance, great food, great location. This is gonna be one of my favs forever
Tabard Inn is one of the most authentic spots to enjoy good food and great friends
Excellent food, nice location. Restaurant is a little cramped, but that is to be expected.
The food was well prepared, service was prompt and courteous.
The parlor area is always wonderful, but the excessive lunchtime noise level in the restaurant was awful! I had to yell to be heard across the table with my solo lunch companion, and I could only understand 2 out of every 3 words he said. Won't be back for lunch.
We had a delightful meal. The dining room was quiet with a pleasant atmosphere. Excellent service. The food was well-prepared and tasty.
Lovely Thanksgiving dinner. Great service. Pretty atmosphere.
A DC institution that's loaded in ambiance -- with consistently great food and drinks. Tabard Inn is our go-to for out of town guests and special evenings.
This was our 2nd Thanksgiving with Tabard. This buffet was excellent. OMG, I want to go back tomorrow. Service was very good, but not excellent. Don’t let that missing star deter you. Tabard is a gem.
Since it was the night before Thanksgiving the dining crowd was light. Service and food was good but the bottled wine was a little expensive. They were nice to bring a little birthday dessert and a couple of after dinner cello drinks. Our waitress was very nice and gave us the right amount of attention.
Love the Tabard Inn! Food is excellent! Noise level intolerable on Friday evening! Would need to pick another time !
Excellent Restaurant in every way. Can't wait to return!
Excellent! I love the Tabard, it never disappoints. Had an amazing risotto, fresh and delicious.
Great meal, great service, cozy dining room. Love this place, especially around the holidays. Reasonably priced wine list is really great.
I have been going to the Tabard Inn since the late 70's. Monday night we had an excellent server who said she had been working at the Inn for 20 (or more) years. Loved the music in the fireplace room.
The ambience is lovely and perfect for a special occasion or date. The food was good, nothing spectacular. The wine list was so overpriced it took our breath away and we considered leaving. We wound up having a very nice time but I would hesitate returning because I thought the prices were just too high. No wine bottle on the list under $40.00.
We were entertaining guests from the middle east and wanted to show them some of historic Washington. We had always loved the Tabard Inn and were excited to share it. However, we were seated right by the kitchen door, the noise level was deafening, the service was sloppy and they brought our first courses at the same time as some appetizers we had bought for the table. There was nothing about the hotel in the lobby or on the menu. Our guests were confused as to what was so special. The food was very good!!
Good food but would like lunch option on weekend
I met my husband’s parents for the first time at the Tabard 30 years ago and was so looking forward to being back in their cozy inn for dinner. It was a wonderful memory. We decided to go back for nostalgia’s sake and were sadly so disappointed in our experience there this weekend for dinner. The service was awful. The restaurant was full- yes- it was a Friday night but with prices that they charge you expect them to be able to handle a busy weekend night in their dining room. We had to hail the waiter down whenever we needed her and they just paid so little attention to us it was comical. The food was very good. No complaints there and I love the ambience on a crisp fall night but I would not go back.
Dining room was way too noisy. Detracted from the overall excellent experience
The Inn has what I would call a non-traditional food and wine menu which I found particularly enjoyable.
Very Good except for the mouse . The mouse was at the end of the meal. Thank gosh he didn’t appear till the end.
We had a great brunch at the Tabard Inn - recommend the cheese grits. Sit outside if weather permits!
Brunch was delicious, would definitely dine their again.
We always enjoy breakfast at the Tabard Inn, but as always, we wish they would incorporate sound buffering into the room. With only a few tables occupied, the sound can be crazy loud.
I love this spot. I think my favorite feature is the lounge area by the fireplace. The drinks are original and delicious (well thought out). The vibe is eclectic - you can dine in a smaller room for a quieter intimate meal or in the large dining area to be in the thick of vibrant diners. The food isof high quality as is the service. This place is a hidden gem that is always a pleasure in my opinion.
Lovely meal with great service - topped off with having tea listening to live jazz (Desafinado ++) in the bar lounge - very enjoyable evening.
It took over forty-five minutes to take our order. Our reservation was for 6pm and we did not have our entrees until 745. When we asked for the check early because some of our party had to leave, the waitress was rude.
Eclectic ambiance, many different seating areas each with a different vibe. Food was good, not exceptional. Service was slow at the start of the meal, but bc we were celebrating birthdays, they offered us on the house desserts which was a wonderful touch. Recommend for a special occasion.
