But, at this place and others in DC, you scan the QR code and you literally might not speak to anyone who works there the rest of the time. The water came without a word and the drinks and food the same. No one checked back to see if everything was ok. At the very end we flagged down someone to ask for a box and at that point told her we were unhappy with the minimal wine pour. (See photo)The bartender came over and said “it’s a standard 5 oz pour” at least twice. He appeared uncomfortable and obviously not skilled at a customer confronting him with a complaint. Since we had already closed out when ordering, we had already added the tip. The only thing that saved this dining experience was that the food was delicious. My husband got the burger and I got the half chicken. Both were excellent. Honestly, this place could be run by robots and I would feel no different. Ditch the QR scanning and bring back the server/diner relationship!

You order via an app, with no interaction with a server until your food is delivered. Food taking too long (ours took 40 minutes)…go find someone who maybe (in our case maybe not) can help you. Unless you specifically keep your tab open, you also have to tip ahead of time. I understand the restrictions of COVID and issues in the service industry, but this is a terrible service model for a sit down restaurant.

I hate that everyone has to order on their phones and you cannot create a tab for the table, doesn't work well for going out with your parents and trying to help them order and them not understanding they can't pick up the check because you have to pay BEFORE the food and drinks come out, plus you have to tip ahead of time.

You have to use an app to order even when eating inside. Not really any great explanation by the staff, when they actually show up. Ordered a second tasteless chicken dinner by mistake, didn’t see the confirmation text they sent because I politely had my ringer off. Had to pay for it anyway. Food was basically thrown on the table and staff left. Will NEVER tip again before finishing with my meal experience. Service was like going to McDonald’s and you don’t tip there. Staff did nothing to deserve a tip. Food was tasteless. The Porter was excellent but decided not to buy a 4 pack for $18 since I had an extra $20 chicken meal already. Super disappointed.

The food order was incorrect and it took half an hour for them to correct my order which by that time everyone else had finished their meal. I only recommend this place for beer, nothing else.

They require you to order all drinks and food via an online app. Which means no one is available to answer questions about beer type, pairings, etc. It also means that you need to order things one at a time or everything comes to your table en masse (in our case, appetizer, salad, and entree all delivered at the same time). Beer was warm, too. Wouldn't rush back, unfortunately.

Last visit was in 2014, to celebrate son-in-law’s Ph.D. graduation. The two dining experiences could not have been more different. The first was very personal. This time, everything was impersonal: pulling up the menu from a QR code, ordering from a phone then paying via phone. The only time we saw wait staff was at seating, to bring water and food. If this is the wave of the future due to post-Covid restaurant employee shortages, then tipping ought to reflect the downgrade in the dining experience. Food was good, but could not make up for the low-touch service.

Its all processed through your phone. But once ordered, food and drinks came out in a very timely manner.

Great sauce for sweet potato fries. The noise level was loud, making our table have to add to the din by talking loudly.

We were only brought our food. No one checked if we needed water refills, I guess we were supposed to do that ourselves? No one came to ask us if we needed our food boxed up, so we also just took containers and did it ourselves which felt odd. But the food was very good, and it’s a fun spot. They need to work on the service aspect though.

First of all, when I called to slightly change my reservation, the host immediately greeted me very warmly by name and made me feel like we would be very welcome. That extended into our arrival at the restaurant, which set the perfect tone for enjoying the meal. If we wanted a brightly lit, noisy experience, my husband and I could’ve had it on the bar side, but we got exactly what we were looking for in a cozy, candlelit dining area. Whenever I’m in the area, I will plan on stopping by Bluejacket. The vaccination screening wasn’t weird and the contactless ordering/payment was a breeze. It felt very safe. Even with these precautions, everyone on staff that we encountered that was warm and friendly - and we wanted for nothing. I was worried that we didn’t leave enough time for dinner before an event, but the service was excellent, the food came out quickly, and everything was delicious. Highly recommended!

The space is so spacious and beautiful, the food comes out quickly and the buffalo chicken dip is the absolute best.

The flavor of the food was excellent but the lamb sandwich had a huge piece of fatty lamb not chopped up so was impossible to actually eat.

We enjoyed the following snacks: Tostada and buffalo dip. The smothered tots were ok. Beers were good but the water taste horrible. I was disappointed that the people serving didn’t have a mask on but in DC it’s not mandatory.

We then waited another hour for 2 desserts and then in the end we cancelled them.

What happened to the fantastic steaks, double pork chops and all the rest? I’ll probably return at some point, but it feels like Bluejacket has just become any brew-pub with fairly standard and uninspiring menu.

And even on a Sunday evening it appeared that it was easy to walk up for dinner (without a reservation). The food was pretty good - the steak was tender but too salty, the risotto was creamy but had no flavor. BUT - the QR code-driven service was bizarre. One even had to request water/silverware via the website. When ordering for a whole table, creating a tab was not self-evident UNTIL one individual went to place an order. Ordering an appetizer was confusing too - yes, one can order an appetizer, but if ordered at the same time as the main meal, it shows up WITH the main meal. The ambiance of the dining room is cold and factory-like - not trendy industrial. It seemed that the bar (on the other side of the wall) was warmer. All in all - it was okay. Not sure I'd go back again except for drinks.

Had to ask a dozen questions before getting service and food. All orders including drinks and requesting service through a phone App. Imagine that! The Hostesses ended up taking my order (thank goodness). Drinks were pre-made and blah! What can I say. Don’t see a reason to go back.
