Just wonderfully delicious, from our cocktails to the starter to the entree, all are a celebration of everything that is delectable about porky goodness! The roasted Pork Belly Bun starter held crispy pork belly with a tangy sauce that hit the perfect note to begin our journey, the signature cocktails were smooth and a perfect compliment. Our entrees of the BBQ platter (ribs, brisket and pulled pork) and Pernil Pork were just delicious, perfectly cooks that it all melted in your mouth. The Peach Cobbler dessert with peach gelato was about as perfect as a dessert could be. The Pig is a restaurant that will make any foodie incredibly happy!

My wife and I came here for dinner. I am a huge carnivore and all about the pig. The pork belly app was delicious. Everything came out in great time. The portions were ample! Corn bread was a bit dry. But overall food was worth it! We had Fausto as our server and he was training. They were FABULOUS. Loved them and were very attentive.

Service was friendly and quick, and the food was excellent. The twice-fried chicken wings were addictive, and the ribs were so tender. The deep fried apple pie was the perfect finish! The wood walls and sound dampeners on the ceilings provide effective noise control. We were there pretty early, so it wasn't that full, but even when more ppl came toward the end it was still quiet enough to have a conversation.

Great food. Good price for bottomless mimosas. My only "but" is that we had to call a few times to the waitress to get more mimosas.

Ate here with a group of friends Fourth of July weekend and it was a great experience. Our server Finis made the experience with incredible service and great recommendations. The oysters were fresh and the brisket was dope. Thanks Finis and the staff at the pig!

The food and drink were excellent! Look forward to returning to try other plates and drinks. Only complaint was the vegetable selection. Love meat and potatoes, but some, green, red and yellow vegetables would have been nice to accentuate the meal.

The Pig is inconsistent in every facet - food, drinks and service. It's typical of DC area BBQ places unfortunately.

Arrived when The Pig opened on Sunday for Brunch. Were promptly seated and given a card with the specials on it. We were instructed to use our phones to open the menu via a QR code and asked if we would care for bottled sparkling water or tap water.

Brian and Fausto took our drink order, appetizers and entrees in proper order, answered any beverage questions as well as gave food recommendations and inquired to any applicable food allergies anyone at the table had. They were attentive but not intrusive and continued to give my wife, friends and I a wonderful experience for brunch on Sunday.

Dinner out with our kids - aged 25 and 22. So just like going out with friends. 😉

The Pig never disappoints! Every item that came to the table was delicious. Seasoned perfectly, slow-cooked beautifully and presented artfully. It’s a must-do, every time we visit DC. If you’ve never been, you’re missing out! Their brunch is killer, also, and an excellent value.

Always one of our favorite places to dine. We were so happy to be able to enjoy The Pig again. Outdoor dining felt like a Paris cafe. A bit of road noise but easily tolerated in exchange for delicious food and beverages, stellar service, and spending time with friends (safely) once again.

Very nice experience and the food was really good. The only bummer was that I was told that the shank was ~2 lbs and had crispy skin. Mine was <1 lb and had no skin and was not crispy.

It was still very tasty just advertised totally wrong.

Everything else was spot on and we will be back and soon.

May 2021 and it’s the first restaurant I’ve been to that I felt appropriately set their indoor expectations, kindly kept customers to it, and truly limited their seating to maintain safety as opposed to maximize profits. Our waiter was incredibly kind and warmly facilitated our evening.
