Food is really not as good as it used to be - not worth the price anymore
Great to have a meal at a restaurant after far too long. They have done a great job of separating the tables throughout the restaurant and the atmosphere in the courtyard was very pleasant though I did get attacked by mosquitos.
Great food, nice atmosphere. Hope the staff was coming to us more regularly, but under the situation, it may have been difficult.
My friend and I really enjoyed the outside patio and ambience of this place. The food was also very good! Definitely worth a visit
Wonderful spot for our anniversary dinner. Very good food, excellent service and perfect atmosphere on the patio.
Excellent adaptation to CV-19 and food as good as always.
The service and space was great! I have to return as the kitchen did not have an oysters for a po boy. But I enjoyed my BLT and gazpacho.
Thank you for a lovely lunch!
We had an absolutely fantastic time at this gem of a restaurant. The vibe is eclectic and artsy without being stuffy. The staff was attentive and kind. The food was delicious. Each plate was better than the previous- not sure how they kept topping themselves! We are especially impressed that it is an employee-owned company. You will not be disappointed for choosing the Tabard Inn for dinner.
Amazing place with great food and great cocktails!! Everyone in our group had a great time and liked their back patio. Friendly staff and the manager, Gris, was awesome!!!
The service and food were outstanding but the mosquitos made outdoor dining impossible. They were so accommodating packing up the entire meal to take home to eat. The pandemic makes indoor dining feel like a thing of the past...for the foreseeable future.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner sitting on the Tabard Inn's patio. There was just one other table occupied in the patio and it was a good distance away. We had the ceasar salad and arugula salad, the softshelled crab and NY strip. All was well-prepared and delicious. They also brought us complimentary prosecco and dessert for our anniversary which was lovely.
Fantastic ambiance, service, and food! Order the donuts and the corned beef!
It was excellent and very peaceful atmosphere and intimate
The outdoor dining experience was lovely..lifted our spirits
Ambiance and service was amazing! Request the patio seating if you are looking to sit outdoors. Thank me later lol.
Had a fabulous brunch at the Tabard Inn. The outdoor space feels like a secret garden with tables separated by chic wooden planters, much appreciated during COVID. Waitstaff was fabulous and the food was thoughtful and delicious! Don’t miss this special spot!
We're trying to support our local restaurants during this terrible time, but sadly our meal was marginal at best. The $18 burrata appetizer had dressing with so much dry oregano that everything was overpowered by the harsh raw flavor, and the $25 spring vegetable risotto was inadequately seasoned (maybe water was used instead of stock?) and the vegetables were tiny, overcooked = flavorless. The gazpacho was fine, but the vegetables were purified so the soup lacked texture. The soft shell crabs were fairly good compared to the rest. Overall, disappointing.
Great place to have small appetizers. But don’t go between brunch and dinner time. Dinner cocktails are $9 but same brunch cocktails are $15 or so. So when I wanted extra cocktails after 3 o’clock they still charged me $15. Also we asked for chips expecting homemade chips etc but came up real 3 different lays chips. Very disappointed:(
Nice outdoor venue with very nicely prepared food.
Among the best special spots in WDC. Always recommended. SCC.
Corned beef an eggs was awesome. Great gazpacho.
As always delicious food with seasonal offerings served by attentive wait staff.
LOVED the outside courtyard. Tien our server was very speedy and efficient. AMAZING FOOD. Huge shoutout to the catering Manager who was on the floor and touched our table multiple times to ensure PERFECTION. Means a LOT when the manager is on the floor touching tables. As a GM, I was pleasantly surprised by his warmth and grace. We WILL be back and we both WILL tell our friends. Maybe we will have our wedding reception here. BEAUTIFUL SPACE!
5 stars overall!
This is twice I have had lunch service during COVID times. such great safe protocols here! And eating on the terrace is so quaint and beautiful. The food, to die for! The service, impeccable! This place is 5 star all the way, plus a 6th star for safety protocols!
It was our first time going to a restaurant since the quarantine started. The staff were very helpful and made us feel save. All of them were properly using face mask.
They accommodate our party of 4 in one of the the tables that they have on the sidewalk. Tables seemed to me to be a good distance apart, we were the only people at lunch time.
Water came and they changed glasses, instead of serving on the same glasses, every time we were low in water.
Food came covered and as always it was delicious!! I’ll definitely I recommend this restaurant and the Peach Scallops 🤗
Thank you to the team!!
So charming and cozy - love that soft shell crab 🦀
So glad to see you again. Well done on social distance. Great meal as always.
Nice, rallying and cozy atmosphere staff very nice, delicious food!
The courtyard was awesome! Sat here for brunch & it’s not too hot thanks to ceiling fans. Everyone is spaced out & wearing masks. Great service & food.
The outdoor patio is beautiful, the service was great, would be ideal for a romantic date night or special occasion.
Great customer service and bellinis! Donuts are amazing !
Great experience - sat out on the patio and it was a hot day and it being enclosed made it rather hot. There was also a bit of miscommunication between the servers about who was taking our order but it worked out.
The Tabard Inn is the best. We decided to come out for brunch, and received excellent service, delicious food, all staff wore masks and hand sanitizer was abundantly provided. The management personally came by to check in on us and thank us for our support! Such nice people here.
The Tabard Inn did not disappoint! First time back since 2012 and food was amazing! Scallops and Peaches fish was A+
The restaurant is beautiful. It is part of a very unique, boutique hotel. The food was great. All of the servers and hosts were wearing masks and kept a safe distance while being attentive.
Tabard Inn is making the best of a terrible situation and doing about as good a job with social distancing and outdoor/ventilated dining as any restaurant can. The staff was helpful and courteous and prompt and the food was excellent, as always.
Had an amazing experience at Tabard Inn. The ambiance and scene was set perfectly! My fiancé and I would attend again . Thank you for an amazing experience!
This was a great choice for our last meal in the city. The menu was full of simple, well executed meals that were outstanding. Mary’s berries and the eggs Benedict were some of my favorite dishes I’ve had in a very long time. Will definitely be back on our next visit!
My husband and I visited the restaurant at Tabbard Inn in July for our anniversary. We were seated on the patio, which is beautiful. The ceiling fans also cooled the patio down, so even though it was around 90 degrees out, we were not too hot. The service was outstanding - the manager greeted us with complimentary glasses of champagne when we sat down, and we never felt rushed for taking our time deciding what to eat and drink. The entrees are a little pricey, but everything is delicious. It's a great special occasion restaurant.
Had lunch in the courtyard, masked, with a friend. It was 95 degrees out, but felt reasonable. There was only one other couple there, we were spaced far apart, and the staff all wore masks, which made it feel like a really safe environment. The food and ambiance was outstanding. Thank you for a brief and beautiful reprieve from quarantine Tabard Inn!
