Enjoyed the Sunday brunch and the outside seating. Great omelette station. Kudos to the staff who were attentive, friendly and courteous.

The waiters were all hanging around, doing nothing (actually playing Pokemon). We had to ask someone to come to waffle station to make a waffle. We waited for 15mins before the waiter realized we were done and ready for the check.I knew we'd made the wrong decision when we sat down. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere better for brunch!

I ordered the fish tacos from the brunch menu and they were delicious and quite sizable. We were there for the UEFA championship and all the TV screens were tuned to that. Unfortunately, the place we were was rather small and they were playing music rather loudly which made me unable to truly enjoy the experience.

The service seemed a bit disorganized. Our entrees were good. Enjoyed dining outside once the soccer fans watching TV left.

My very favorite place for brunch in the country. Great atmosphere, great servers and exceptional food. Feels more like home than a restaurant.

Great service, good happy hour drinks deal, food so-so - crab cakes fine and tasty; flounder overcooked in microwave resulting in almost no taste.

I love the brunch with the mimosas. Great for groups. Will go back soon.

The food was okay, not great not terrible. The bottomless mimosas were not very good. Tasted like pure orange juice. In addition our waitress was never around so it took forever for refills! A 2 hour limit is set but you can barley get out of there in that amount of time because it takes the server so long to do everything. I asked 3 people for help and still waited. We were there before it was busy, around 10 people in the entire restaurant. So I can't imagine how it is once it gets busy later in the day!

The food on the happy hour menu was of poor quality and did not taste good. I was disappointed given the high reviews for this restaurant's happy hour. I probably won't return.

The restaurant was fantastic; great atmosphere; great food and great service. There was 25% off a bottle of wine and marvelous desserts. Quiet music in the background made conversation easy.

Great drinks! Great patio area! We had a nice time at The Front Page after walking around DC we even hit it during happy hour!!

I'm local and have gone to the Front Page often; however, this Saturday night, there was a "paint by numbers" class/wine party or something in the main room and it was LOUD! LOUD! LOUD! to the point that you could not hear anyone across the table from you. It was definitely something that should have been mentioned when making the reservation because I would not have booked a table had I known what a nightmare it was going to be that night. Usually, the Front Page is a good choice, but this time I just couldn't get it any higher than "Fair".

The Front Page's brunch is solid. The buffet has just the right amount of items to keep me satisfied. The waffles, chicken wings, smoked salmon (cold), and salad bar are my faves.

Cool Spring evening, outside table, old friends, good wine, $5 appetizers. Can't beat that.

I've dined at other locations for brunch and the food was always plentiful; however, this was not my experience while dining here. We constantly had to wait for the food to be restocked and it should never get to a point where diners are pulling for scraps before the food is restocked.

Not only is Front Page a fun place to drink on Friday night, but it is also a good for Brunch on Saturday morning.
