Great. Really excellent.
Great brunch!!!! Food is wonderful, atmosphere great, the service manager came by twice to check on the service and food!!! Drinks great!
Excellent Service, Food, Fun! We loved everything about our dining experience...including our server and the hostess!
Would highly recommend!
Very pleasant evening out - fun vibe, great service. My husband loved the salmon and I loved the duck...
Really wonderful restaurant. Great food and atmosphere.
Great business lunch! The venue is bright and food is excellent.
This restaurant is always a staple when I visit DC. From the service to the food, to the di droppings hit after hit while I sip on my bottomless mimosas, it’s a win across the board.
Came here for brunch with a friend. I ran a little late looking for a parking spot, and when I arrived at my table, my friend told me that we had exactly 2 hours to dine from the moment the first member of the party sits down at the table. So at that point, 10-15 min was already gone. While I understand there are other reservations later in the day, I thought that rule was a little rude (and at the time of my brunch, the whole restaurant was empty). Our server was visibly displeased that we didn't choose the buffet and instead opted for an a-la-cart option. He barely came back to check on us. The food is really good and the vibe is great - the music was loud but awesome during brunch. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to friends if they want a leisurely meal.
We enjoyed ourselves and the food was very good. But the service was not stellar. They forgot my dessert (I ordered from the pre-fix menu). And they mixed up our doggy bags. I got my friend's leftovers and she got mine. It's a nice restaurant but the service should have been better.
Great service and a wonderful meal. The power lunch is a great deal.
Excellent location & awesome ambiance. Food was great, waffles were even better! Love DJ for brunch is a great touch. I will definitely return.
Claudia was our server, she was very friendly and professional. First time at this establishment, will be back in the near future.
Exceptional service. Never had to wait for more food or drinks. The servers seemed to know what we wanted but weren’t overbearing.
Food was just okay. We should have known when we asked the waiter what he would suggest, he said”well let me first tell you what not to get”...and then proceeded to name half of the menu. Great location but would have enjoyed more if the food was better.
My salmon porting was too small for an entree but would recommend anyway
I went for my birthday, and happened to check the open table box that it was my birthday. Wasn’t expecting anything to come of it and the waiter and (who I presume to have been) the manager were just absolutely lovely. The food was also perfect, but frankly the service and birthday love made my day.
Great experience as always! Great food, decent pricing, and a fun bartender.
I don’t have anything negative to say about this. I loved the food, environment, the service, everyone dressed up. It was beautifully designed and it was perfect. Made reservations for mommy bday weekend and it was EVERYTHING I IMAGINED AND THEN SOME!
We went for the Sunday brunch. Food is just ok. No taste to the waffles nor to their a la carte items. Founding Farmers has a much better brunch and way better tasting food. The server at the waffle station was not very customer friendly nor did he give any butter freely unless you ask. And when you ask, he seemed upset about it. The only plus is that the ambiance is lively and they have a DJ playing live music.
Poorly timed food. Entrees came out too fast and only two at a time for our party of 6. Had to keep reminding waiter for things we had asked for. Meal for 6 was fine in 1 1/4 hours. Not what we wanted. Went elsewhere for dessert to extend the night. Very unhappy looking host seating guests.
The food was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the history of Teddy Roosevelt- he was engaging. The decor is beautiful and interesting. All in all a wonderful evenings
A little loud but location great.
The restaurant came highly recommended by a former bartender at this restaurant. Although I did not go during happy hour, the happy hour deals are supposed to be good. I ordered from the pre fixe menu which was amazingly delicious. The waiter suggested I return for a Sunday brunch and I will. The wine pairing with the pre fixe menu was perfect. I really enjoyed the dessert as well. A great first time experience.
The food was meh. Ordered the cornbread (I've cooked Jiffy at home that was tastier), mac and cheese (nothing to write home about), and scallop entrée (scallops were good, the rest of the entrée was luke warm). Our server kept forgetting to items to the table - flatware, lemon for cocktail. Overall, I don't think I'll be going back.
Waitress was very pleasant and ensured that we were satisfied with our meal. She was able to explain the food choices and ingredients that I was not familiar with.
Teddys was great. Food was awesome and always came out hot. Waiter was attentive and present, kept our glasses full! The music was nice but it was just a liiiiittle too loud. Hope to go back soon.
Arrived on time for our reservation and were immediately greeted with “our kitchen is closing so if you want food you’ll need to order”. I said “we have a dinner reservation and we are 5 minutes early” and I was simply ignored and despite having a reservation which they offered as an option online the employees were clearly more interested in getting out for the night than fulfilling the reservations. Food was good, atmosphere was pretty cool.
Food was great, as always, but the service was off. Typically the staff is very attentive but Sunday brunch seems to be a bit more relaxed service wise.
Nice crowd for Sunday brunch! Cool vibes and music- food was good too! No complaints.
Excellent restaurant for business lunch. My guest and I had the Cubano and Salmon salad. Excellent! Service is always very good!
Great service and delicious food. You have to see the "Teddy" decor!
For a place that touts its aged bourbon and cocktails generally, the $14 old-fashions were very underwhelming. Serving pour was stingy and the presentation of the drink was poor. Our table went there for dinner and to try cocktails. We arrived expecting to order at least two rounds because the online drink menu looked impressive. Instead, we stopped at one round and we sent back the old-fashioned #1 drink.
We were seated ten feet from the bread/bakery station and yet bread did not arrive at our table until after the first course. Even despite three requests for bread from the time we were seated. Dinner itself was good. Overall, felt like another generic place with high prices that doesn’t live up to its billing.
I was looking for brunch on MLK day to celebrate my birthday. I called the restaurant and Tyler was very nice and welcoming about the brunch being offered that day. When I arrived at the restaurant he sat me promptly at the seat of my choice. Leslie, our server, was very sweet and knowledgeable about the menu items. The food was so great and the staff were all very welcoming and sweet! I will be back!
first time we tried brunch. We weren't disappointed, but dinner is definitely my favorite.
Had a really nice evening at Teddy & The Bully Bar with a friend going as part of the Restaurant week in Washington DC - so got a lovely menu for good value of money. The staff was really nice, the food excellent and the atmosphere lovely - so can only recommend this place.
Management service was very poor didn’t care for his demeanor. I asked waiter about a drink but it said happy hour he stated purchase at the bar . I go to bar bartender stated her manger said she couldn’t serve me if I’m a guess at a table . I explain I was sent to purchase my drink. Go back and tell the waiter what she said he apologized . So I placed order at table it took over 30 min to get drunk we had to keep asking where is my drink . There was only 4 tables and no one at bar , so what where we waiting for? My food came out scallops hot but spinach and squash was cold not warm but cold . So between the cold plate and drink matter manager decided to come on floor . He never came to our table to apologize , just walked around with a horrible look that no one should have working in Customer service , but 3 people that came in and didn’t have glasses of water he put a smile on for them and poured their water. I/we never gave negative response to our situation but to not be acknowledged by management and the mistakes happening , I would think he would have made it known he was aware and apologized. I want to hope that I/we didn’t get acknowledged because we were the only people of color there ,(2 females) it started to feel that way as more customers started to come in. Please correct the manger in his people/ customer service skills.
My colleague and I ate here for lunch during restaurant week. It was good. I had the brussel sprouts (yummy), grilled cheese (bread toasted a little too much), and pear crostada (a little lacking in taste with tough dough). My colleague has the squash soup and the branzino. She liked them. It's worth giving another shot with different food choices.
The three course meal during restaurant week was delicious. Crispy chicken, amazing brussel sprouts, and flourless cake with ice cream. Great service and atmosphere!
Good food, fun ambiance, tremendously loud. Hard to hear my companion from across the table.
