The food here was absolutely amazing. My husband and I went in and split a few different menu items, and everything was just incredible. The Shank is well worth every penny -- the meat was juicy, smoky, and melted off the bones, and the greens served with it were delicious. Service was also great. Attentive without being overbearing, friendly without seeming fake.

Will likely visit again the next time I find myself in the DC area.

It was okay. For a restaurant that specializes in "pig" I would have expected more falvor. We got the tacos as an appetizer. Eh. I got the cubano for a meal. It was good, but not anything to write home about. 4 beers, an appetizer, and 2 entries for $88. Not super impressed. Had a very limited menu.

Food was good. We had sausages, shank, and pork chops, Face bacon stood out - it was fatty and tasty. The only complaint is that it’s a bit too dark. It’s not a romantic type of food or restaurant, so please turn up the lights a bit.

The dining room was pleasant and not overly noisy, which I really appreciated. I could hear the people at my table despite being right by the bar. The food was so good, especially the lengua barbacoa tacos - very tender! I appreciated the champagne to OJ ratio in the mimosas - this place actually gave you what you pay for. Oh the breakfast sammie was a table favorite as well. We were very happy with the portion size Our server was attentive and able to give us suggestions on the menu. I would definitely come back for more!

All our food was excellent. Our waitress was helpful in deciding what we wanted to order. We had charcuterie and the pork buns for appetizers and they were all fantastic. Out of the entrees, the pork shank was the best one we got. We also got cocktails which were unique and tasty.

The food was delicious starting with the lamb sausage and pork belly buns (the sauces were so savory), to the porchetta and pork chops, and finishing with the sticky toffee pudding. The coffee was excellent as well.

The Pig is a winner.From the service, to the food, to the cocktails, you can't go wrong. Since it is, after all, The Pig, we stayed with pork dishes. We didn't try any of the Charcuterie or sausages. Went right to the appetizers -- Face Bacon and Fried Pork Belly Buns. The face bacon was unctuous, tender, and addicting. I could have eaten 3 or 4 more orders of it. The Pork Belly buns were amazing as well -- tender buns, black garlic glazed crispy and juicy pork belly, and pickles. Another one I could have made a meal out of. For entrees, we chose the pan seared pork chop and the Porchetta. The pork chop may not be the best pork chop I've ever had at a restaurant -- but then again it might be. Perfectly cooked, juicy, with a tinge of rose. The porchetta was everything you'd want in porchetta -- an amazing pork sausage wrapped in pork belly. Pork Nirvana. We didn't leave room for dessert. The service was fabulous -- just right attentiveness and the servers recommendations were spot on. It didn't hurt that she was amazingly personable.

There was so much on the menu that I wanted to try, there is clearly one more -- or likely several more -- visits to The Pig in my future.

The appetizers and wine were literally jaw dropping. Fiancé had the face bacon and after first bite I thought he was having a spiritual moment it was go great! The baked Brie, macaroni and cheese, heirloom carrots, and ribs were all amazing. Dessert we got two classics and were not disappointed- sticky toffee pudding and banana foster. Highly recommend this restaurant and in-fact have already spread the word to friends and family it’s a must try!

It’s not my first time here, but it’s been a while and I’m thrilled that everything was 100% consistent with every other time I’ve been! Fantastic service from Ayla, fantastic food, fantastic cocktails! My best friend is in town visiting and his boyfriend is coming into town this weekend. He wanted to take him to another, more well-known place in town, but mid-appetizer he looked at me and said, “Make a reservation right now for Sunday!”

The pig is what you get! Fun little joint Nd great BBQ. I had the ribs which were excellent. House made pickles and slaw made it special. Went for dessert and had the toffee cake which was yummy. I returned the next Eve for the chocolate cake and mint ice cream which is to die for! Great place and great value. Good coffee too!

Great takes on classic food and drink. Casual enough to be comfortable for families, but innovative enough to be fun for foodies. Pig-focused menu is full of off-beat, delicious items and the cocktails list is also bold and original. Great service, which is rare.
