The restaurant is elegant, but it doesn't feel pretentious or stuffy. The service is excellent. This is the first restaurant where I tipped 30%! It was that great- they prepared something that wasn't even on the menu for me
Food was delicious. Extensive wine list. Great ambiance. Romantic atmosphere.
We have had brunch at The Grill Room several times and have never been disappointed. We always receive a warm welcome, the food is declicious and the service impeccable. This is a gem.
Upscale Contemporary American food and pleasing, subdued decor.
Dining alone, I chose the 4-course prix fixe with Tuscan-only wine pairings, evidently a special promotion in cooperation with a particular winery. The mushroom tortellini and salmon in a mild vegetable chowder were very good, though lamb medallions were only average. The third course was supposed to be squab, but I requested a substitution with hamachi, which I was happy with.
The Grill Room’s clientele that night seemed to consist mostly of out-of-towners like myself, but I thought it was much better than some other Georgetown restaurants that seemed popular with locals.
We came here for Christmas brunch. Excluding the drinks always taking a while to get to us, the service was impeccable. The food was delicious. We would definitely go back.
It was recommended as a place where conversation would be easy, and the ambient noise level low. It delivered on that promise. Food good. Price, way too high.
Overall wonderful experience. Food was beautifully prepared (and presented) and was most delicious: apps, mains and desserts.
Beautiful setting in Georgetown alongside the C&O canal.
Valet parking though the Rosewood was easy to use - and much appreciated on a busy Saturday night in Georgetown.
Service was friendly and attentive - although slightly off at times (for example, bottle of wine decanted before being offered a sample seemed off).
Value-wise, prices were definitely on the high side.
This is the second time I’ve been for Thanksgiving and it did not disappoint! The food, service and wine list is fantastic. I will definitely be back.
We booked our table for Thanksgiving Dinner during a family trip to Washington, D.C. for the week. The location inside the Rosewood Hotel in Georgetown just off of M Street was lovely. The service was just right, and the food was top notch. We ordered from the special Thanksgiving Menu, although the regular menu was also available. The turkey was perfectly cooked, moist and tender with flavorful stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. Pecan and apple pie with bourbon ice cream was the sweet end to the meal. Seasonal cocktails and an ample wine list kept us hydrated. ;)
Thanksgiving spread was very good! We were the only ones in the restaurant and I’ve had faster service at a packed restaurant, but every staff member was very friendly.
Rosewood customer that had not visited this property. A ‘compact” but attractive setting in keeping with Rosewood standards - enjoyable evening.
A great meal with great service. Started with a couple excellent seasonal cocktails (the bourbon/pumpkin one and the vodka/apple one), followed by the grilled octopus and the Tuscan Kale soup. The octopus was fantastic - charred just the right amount, and exactly as grilled octopus should be (but rarely is). The soup was good, too, but a bit over salted. Entrees (salmon and the lobster tagliatelle) were both delicious and beautifully presented. Potion sizes perfect. Every single person on the server staff was fantastic. Attentive, thoughtful and yet not at all intrusive. I’m looking forward to going back (and sadly probably won’t try a new appetizer as I’m already thinking of the delicious grilled octopus...)!
Great service and courteous staff. Food mediocre—fish Over cooked and paper thin fillet. The bright spots were the entrees, the bread, and the butternut squash soup, all of which were superb.
The service was very good. But the food was okay for the price. We ordered a bottle of white wine. They did not have it in stock. They offered another white wine but it was not chilled. It was expensive and we expected more. Perhaps, we did not order correctly!
Service was outstanding! Food was delicious. Let the restaurant know we were celebrating a special occasion and they did not disappoint!
Disappointing, to the extreme. We are travelers and familiar with Rosewood-London.
With all the excellent dining options in Georgetown, we chose the Rosewood's Grill Room purposely, wrongly assuming it would offer good food, good service in elegant surrounds.
The food was tasteless, boring and the service absent. We will not return, and will not now consider recommending this otherwise lovely hotel for an overnight.
One of the worst expensive dining experiences ever. We were the only guests at 6:30 p.m. I ordered a salad without nuts. It came 35 minutes later with nuts (the only order in the kitchen . . ). Main courses arrived after another long wait. They were good (chicken and steak) but served on very cold plates each with a bed of very cold mashed potatoes, which quickly cooled the main courses. The waiter needed to be summoned, from wherever he was hiding, for any need - drinks or water refill, salt and pepper, to clear, for desert, for the check, etc. when we left there were still only three other tables occupied; apparently word has gotten around. Will never return though we live nearby.
Amazing place for a Sunday brunch!
This was a very special occasion and I called the restaurant in advance to let them know. However, there was no acknowledgement of the occasion during the meal-- not even a Happy Birthday!
Wait staff was slow and inattentive. I was especially irked when, as the dinner plates were being removed, I asked if the wine we ordered was finished. Our wine bottle had been whisked away after the first pour. Turns out we had half a bottle left which was never poured! Oops!
Never going back!
Great service and good food and nice location!!! Love it:) a good brunch experience.
The ambiance is outstanding and so is the service.
We had been before to The Grill Room and had been very satisfied clients on all levels, food, service, ambiance
This time nothing was acceptable....table was not ready although it was empty with dirty glasses from previous clients. It took us 10-15 min to be seated. Another 10 to be attended to for water and cocktails. Cocktails were great but took forever. So long that we decided not to order a bottle of wine. At this level of restaurant and prices the attention we got was not acceptable. The oysters and halibut were good, thank goodness.
Very sad to experience this. Looked forward to visiting as we frequent when we visit our college student. Next time not on our list. Very sorry because we loved The Grill Room before
Being able to sit outside in Washington DC in August is a treat in itself, however, dining at the Grill Room on the Georgetown Canal on a beautiful summer day was exquisite. The pastrami and gruyere was excellent. Service just right for a business meal. The Grill Room is inside Rosewood, an elegant hotel off M street in Georgetown, but has wonderful outside dining.
Nice restaurant, good food but insane prices. Don't bother with the wine - prices really are eye watering. Value for money was an epic fail. Service / staff were lovely. I'm not sure how they can justify the cost for alcohol.
Great atmosphere and good service, but the food was sub-par. My wife had the Lobster Tagliatelle, that claimed to come with a Port & Cognac lobster cream. The pasta was cold, starchy and had no sauce and there was minimal lobster. The 'charred' vegetables were beyond charred and while the watermelon salad was visually appealing, that's where it stopped. We were so disappointed, as the ambience and setting was perfect and the server was very pleasant. We will not return to the Grill Room, but may return to the Rye Bar-Great service and drinks.
Expensive but the food was delicious. Lovely place to go for a date or a nice meal.
Food was good. Service was painfully slow.
Great Service. Great food with creative presentation.
I chose the Grill Room for a birthday dinner for my granddaughter. I mentioned this when I made the reservations and from the moment we came in from the moment we left all the wait staff wished her a happy birthday. The food was excellent, the ambience perfect, and the service above reproach! It was a perfect evening for a gran,other and her 20 year old granddaughter!
Beautiful place to dine with friends and enjoy a delicious meal
What a wonderful place. I found this restaurant on Open Table and was overwhelmed with the experience. The service and ambience were rich and pampering and the food was exquisite. I would gladly return to the Grill Room for any special meal in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.
Excellent food and service in a quiet and elegant dining room of a small Georgetown boutique hotel. Chef was flexible for a vegetarian and end the portions were just right. Highly recommend! Very romantic too!!!
Great food and great service
Great service, friendly wait staff, good food
Ate breakfast for mother's day. Selection was limited but food was great. Will definitely do it again
Amazing service and food. People need to discover this place
Went for early Mother's Day celebration. Great atmosphere, quiet, and relaxing
The Grill Room was a restaurant my wife and I liked very much, but it has changed for the worse. Before I would have said it was very good; now it is very mediocre. On a recent night we went for dinner and the food was so-so and the service was spotty; in the past, we always found the food and service very good to excellent. For dinner, we had the tuna tartar appetizer (good I thought, but more like poke than tartar); a halibut dish and a roasted chicken dish (both were OK at best); and yuzu cake for dessert (small, dry, bland, piece of cake with a little scoop of nondescript ice cream and a couple of berries: very disappointing). The wine person was clearly in the dark about the wine and offered up a guess or two instead of any expertise. Service at the Grill Room was one of its fine points in the past, but now, even with some of the same servers that we had in previous visits, the service was perfunctory at best (although they did note our disappointment with the dessert and did not charge us for it). Maybe this last thought sums up our experience: When making the reservation, my wife was asked if it was a special occasion and she told them it was our anniversary. However, nothing to note this occasion was done at the restaurant, not even simply saying to us "Happy anniversary." This detail, perhaps, speaks to a lack of interest in the clientele. Frankly, it seemed weird in retrospect. A couple days later we learned that the previous chef left the restaurant last October. The difference that this change has made to the Grill Room is significant, and in our experience, entirely negative. In spite of this experience, I am fond of this restaurant because of the great evenings I have enjoyed there in the past, and I hope they can get back to their former levels of ambiance and superior food and service.
A great experience, competent and friendly staff, good food and good value for money. That construction was going on in the lobby disturbed the atmosphere a bit.
