Fantastic for brunch or dinner. If you go for brunch don't miss the bacon charcuterie board (particularly the country bacon and face bacon). For dinner the crispy pork shank is out of this world.

My party of three thoroughly enjoyed both the appetizers and the main courses. For appetizers - we had grilled pig tails and pork belly buns which were delicious! For the first time ever, I had the heritage hog burger which was very tasty - certainly exceeded expectations!

I've been to this restaurant several times and every time the experience is outstanding. We got the face bacon and the pork belly sliders to start, both of which were amazing. For the main course, I got the shank, and the meat was so tender that it fell right off the bone. Plus it was enough to eat for leftovers for lunch the next day! Truly one of the best cuts of meat I've ever had.

Only slight downside was that I wasn't a huge fan of the bananas foster. Normally it's one of my favorite desserts, but this one was very soupy - the bananas were drowning in the caramel-esque sauce, and the overall effect was too sweet for me.

On the whole though, amazing. Would enthusiastically endorse for a date night or any other type of gathering.

Great experience, The server John was excellent and attentive. The food was good, although the ribs are not worth $42.00. Everything else was fairly priced. The three pigs flight was also a good choice. Will save room for dessert next time.

We put the Pig on our agenda every time we visit DC. Pork offerings ranging from sold classics to decadent specialty dishes, they never fail to satisfy. Unpretentious and relaxed, which is how we like to finish a day. But the service is always prompt and professional.

What a great place! Lauren my waitress was excellent and the atmosphere was great, not to mention the food was amazing. I got the pork buns for appetizer and the fried brussel sprouts and pork chops for dinner. Highly recommend all 3! If you have room, definitely get the sticky toffee cake for dessert, it's the perfect end to a meal. All came recommended from Lauren and she was spot on.

“Energetic” is not what I would call the noise level. More like deafening. Even the teenagers in my party thought it was horrendous.

This restaurant was EXCELLENT! My family and I were on a quick trip to DC and I found this place on OpenTable because it was near our hotel. The food was great and the server Sean was fantastic! He was patient as we asked questions and he suggested items as well. I will definitely be back on my next visit!

The atmosphere is unique, fun. The food was OK-the porkchops were lean and tender, but could be seasoned more. The bolognese was not as expected. Didn't expect the meat to be ground. Not sure we would go back for the food. Maybe for drinks and light dishes.

Four of us are repeat offenders since discovering The Pig. Reservation process is easy with no waiting. Service and server were outstanding. Spot on recommendations on our selections. Food was great as always and there have been some changes to the menu that just make it better. Went back the next night for round two.

Definitely one of our favorite places to eat while visiting DC for the week! Every dish was delicious and the portion was quite generous. So much so that we didn’t have room for desserts...but next time we’re in town—we have a strategy to fit in dessert! And our waitress Lauren was fantastic to boot!
