The food was average. Some people's dishes were really good, but others hated their meals. They also did not have any filets left, so several of my guests had to get the larger cut of meat. Additionally, when asked for a birthday dessert, they gave us their cornbread with ice cream. That's not dessert.

Waiter didn’t explain concept of smaller plates and shared food if typical. Didn’t explain that food came out as ready. Took forever to get bill. Peach crisp was really bad- no “crisp” to it.

Service not good. Second time coming to this place as a recommendation from client. Food came out wrong and server was snarky about it. They did take the meal off the bill but won't go back. The noise level was too high for a conversation.

Yummy, yummy! The waffle batter is so buttery, you don't need to add any extra. The brunch mimosas are mostly champagne and the Bloody Mary is spiced just right. Can't go wrong with Teddy's, unless you're on a budget. :)

Great service. The food was tasty, but the dishes maybe a little too complex. There was a lot going on with flavor and texture - seared scallops. The shrimp risotto was too smoky. Cocktail menu was adventurous - i tasted 2 , both of which i would not try again. It was good but not memorable

Love the food and service here normally. The waiter wasn’t that great on this visit, the last one I had was much better. I still like this place though. Will be back. Among the best tasting food amongst the bottomless brunch options in DC.

I would just like to say that our server (listed on the receipt as Maximill) was amazing. He had a wonderful personality, excellent demeanor, and is someone that I would want to wait on me each time I ate at Teddy & The Bully Bar. I cannot give him enough praise! The restaurant is quite good and we always make a special trip to DC just to eat here. You can't go wrong with the breakfast buffet and bottomless drinks. This is a highlight of DC!

Outstanding food made up for poor service. I will continue to frequent this spot as it is one of the best lunch places in DC and the menu stays strong and unique. This was the first time I've come for dinner in some time and the only time I have had an issue with service, so Teddy's will definitely get another chance.

Business lunch was incredibly loud - as designed, apparently. No carpet or soft materials anywhere. Food was OK, service was top-notch. Three-course lunch priced well. Great location. Be prepared to shout between noon and 2 p.m.

The food was pretty good but the service definitely was lacking. We waited for 15 minutes before anyone asked for our drink order. Mind you, the restaurant was dead (ie only 4-5 tables at the most).

Server brought out my plate first, and didn't bring out my girlfriend's plate about 10 minutes later (I had to ask the server where her plate was)

My food was lukewarm by the time she got her plate.

overall, it was good...HOWEVER, we had to wait an excessive amount of time for dessert (and our bill) because someone "dropped the cake." Then, when I asked for my main course and dessert to take home, I was informed that someone threw out my main course (per supposed language "problems"). It was Very Nice that the Manager gave me a full replacement of the main course, though.

We went for restaurant week. The brussel sprouts disappointed this time (oilier and soggier than usual), but the sea bass and the flourless chocolate cake were outstanding, as always!

Great ambience, great food, great drinks . . . Maybe a little louder than helpful for a business meal with 9 people. Definitely come earlier in the evening for that purpose.

The food was great as always, we had a new employee as our server and he wasn’t as efficient with taking orders and bringing mimosas as he could be so that caused for some increased wait times and less satisfaction with the overall experience for the first time guests I brought with me. I’m sure the employee will become adjusted as time goes on. The manager comped us 10% of the bill which is fine but it’s more so the principal of showing face and giving that employee a bit more support as an establishment. I know I will be back and hopefully my friends will too.

I've been here before & have loved everything I've had. Coinidentally, I ordered the salmon this time since it was part of the menu during restaurant week, however, this time, the piece of salmon wasn't a great cut and it tasted just okay---not cooked well like I prefer. I was very surprised, but again, this was my 1st time w/experiencing food that was lackluster here. I'll definitely go back but won't order the salmon.....or maybe it was a popular item on the menu and the best cuts of the fish weren't presented due to the volume of orders requested.

The food was delicious. Initially my group was underwhelmed by the portion size, but it was restaurant week and it was to be expected. But after we got through dessert the talk of “hitting the food trucks on the way back to work” had ceased entirely.

Small service issues. We got different menus. Some got the dinner menu while others got lunch. I had an empty water glass for my main course and dessert. Finally asked for a refill and got it promptly. When one of the bussers was removing an appetizer plate, a butter knife with a big glob of deviled egg mix fell onto the tablecloth and bounced around leaving yellow globs all around the table. The knife was not removed from the table until after dessert and the yellow globs remained as well.

Not the end of the world, and it didn’t ruin the experience. But there is room for improvement there.

The food was delicious, though. I’ll definitely be going back.

The “steak frites “ was pretty bland with a tough cut of meat . My guest had a Cobb salad that he didn’t get 1/4 the way through.

Service here is impeccable.

The food was great, but slightly overpriced. Also, a 20% gratuity is automatically calculated into the final bill. Great if you were planning on tipping 20%, but a little presumptive.
