We really enjoyed our lunch at the Grill Room. My guests and I had never dined at The Grill Room before and we will highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be coming back. The Food, service and ambiance were excellent. Thank you.

We were at the Grill Room for a Friday night dinner for the first time. The restaurant is nestled in the Rosewood Hotel, right by the canal in Georgetown. My pet peeve at restaurants is that they rush you from the moment they sit you and to my delight the wait staff was pleasant and understanding that we aren't rushing to eat. We started off with lobster/crab roll along with crispy potato with rosemary, we enjoyed both. For the main course, I ordered Rye crust Nova Scotia Halibut (braised if I recall?) on top of cooked escarole, soaked in lemon butter, it was a bit bland, though had a clean taste. The other entree was their Sirloin Steak, cooked med well, yet was a bit tough for me. The best part of the experience was the wait staff who very extremely pleasant and courteous.

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

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.

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.

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. ;)

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!

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.

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!

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.
