Ted's Bulletin has excellence all around. The food was delicious and plentiful. The service person was attentive without being intrusive. The price was right on the spot. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were definitely excited to go back to Ted's Bulletin, but we were totally disappointed!! Seems they had a turnaround of their entire staff from bar tenders, servers, and cooks, even management. The salmon rangoons were overcooked. The ahi tuna burger had zero seasoning. The wedge salad had bacon bits instead of lardons, we had to ask for those although the menu says that's what comes on it. The truffle fries were cold and the drinks were terrible. All-in-all we are not coming back any time soon.

Ordered strawberries and blueberries on top of my pancakes received them cooked into the pancakes. Ordered a side of crispy hash browns received mushy hash browns. Ordered hot chocolate w/ dairy free milk received cold hot chocolate with whipped cream on top. Needless to say I do not plan to dine here in the future as the taste of the food was not good in addition to the mistakes made. They say the food is made from scratch but the food quality was not good. If you like farm to table or higher quality food, this place is not for you.

Disappointed with Teds this time around. Drinks did not come until the appetizers, which was not ideal. The main courses came out only 5 minutes or so after the apps which was a bit annoying. We felt very rushed to eat, drink and leave, which made the experience unpleasant. It’s too bad too because I have been to Teds several times and this is the first time I’ve had a poor experience.

The staff was clearly overwhelmed with serving the crowd. Our waitress was very nice, though. The food was ok. My friend's chilli arrived cold, but was replaced when asked for.

Such a pretty place! Such a shame the food was so disappointing and the service a bit hostile and defensive. My tomato juice literally bubbled— have to assume it was from bacterial contamination; have never encountered this before. Spit it out and sent full glass back.
My husband and I both ordered eggs over medium. Both orders came out cooked hard. Requested replacements; server not happy but complied. Replacements perfectly cooked, but rest of meal now cold. Husband’s French toast was golden on one side, but the bottom was literally burned black. He ate it anyway.
I’ve been writing about food and wine for 40 years. This was my second- worst breakfast experience in the U.S. I cannot remember the last time I sent a dish back to the kitchen; I’m no prima donna and understand the tough times,especially now, that restaurants are enduring.

We ate a late dinner at Ted’s Bulletin with our three teenage kids while visiting Washington DC. It was a perfect choice. Great food with fresh ingredients, and some thing for everyone! We will be back the next time we are in town.

So eclectic and fun. Went there for breakfast and everyone’s meal was over the top delicious. Don’t leave without stopping by the bakery counter on your way out. The homemade pop tarts are the best! Your family will love you if you bring some home to them.

Ted's Bulletin is always great, but I just wanted to specifically mention our server, Mike, who was very attentive and thoughtful - my dining companion wasn't feeling well (unrelated to anything there!), and he kept checking on us and tried his best to help her.

We finally made it to Ted's Bulletin! OMGosh everything was AMAZING ... we shared the salmon rangoons, fried cauliflower, harvest salad w/shrimp, and the mediterranean chicken sandwich w/truffle fries ... were to die for!! Last but not least, the service was outstanding and our cocktails...traditional mojito and the jalepeno pineapple margarita could have been stronger, but very tasty!!

Thank you for the lovely experience, we will be back soon with our family next time.

Best regards,
Ms. Brown

I made reservations and they had a hard time getting me suitable seating.
She told me to wait for five minutes so they could clear a table, it was not busy , no people in the lobby waiting. then when the lady came to seat us (3) I didn't like the circular booth where other people to hear your conversation . She told me to go back out front and wait another five minutes and I said no. We finally sat at a two seater booth with three people. Two adults and one child. That fiasco was irritating.

The service from the waiters was kind of lackluster. They got the order wrong a couple times, and with multiple visits. And took forever to come bring the check.

The environment was exactly what we were looking for..relaxed and casual. Food was excellent. Especially the chicken feta burger and truffle fries!! Milkshakes were only so-so. I really didn’t care for the boozy milkshake at all.

We loved the food but since we sat outside the service was really slow. Also we had to deal with beggars coming to our table and asking us for food and money. Next time we will sit inside. I really loved the homemade pop tarts and bought a box to bring to a party later in the day.

Our food was delicious as always but our server seemed a bit preoccupied. Had to ask twice for a ginger ale and asked three times for ketchup. Not a big deal as we eventually received those items but it did slow down our eating a bit.
