The Pig Ratings and Reviews
This was my favorite restaurant in DC, but they have dumbed it down since Michael Bonk left and it does not have the variety and innovation that we came to expect. The food was decent, the service was nowhere near as attentive and we will be looking for other places to go in the future.
The decor was nice as well as the location. We were split in our assessment of the food. The meatballs were over the top salty. The celeric coleslaw tasted bland and mayonaisy. The ribs were cooked perfectly yet lacked a bite. The pork tenderloin was amazing. The bacon wrapped peaches were great but 3 was not enough to share!
We thoroughly enjoyed our (casual, family) experience at The Pig Saturday evening. The service was terrific and the food was delicious -- and presented beautifully. The menu has something for everyone -- pork enthusiast or not. We will definitely go back; all of us want to try EVERYTHING on the menu. Thanks for a great dining experience!
This place came highly recommended by two friends originally from NC (like myself), who love pork!
Unfortunately, the pulled pork ITSELF was dry and inedible - even with sauce. The sauce was far too sweet and scarce. Somehow, the bad taste of the chorizo sausage (too much smoke when it's not supposed to have any!), pulled pork and initially the undercooked (almost raw) kielbalsi-esque sausage put us off the entire meal. Also didn't care for the very toothy (course-cut) grits with cheese and pesto - that was just weird. Maybe our tastebuds were thrown off by the off-putting meats. We couldn't finish our meal and didn't want to take it with us.
BUT! The wait staff was fantastic. Taylor (our server) was awesome. She helped where she could and got me a surprise dessert on a birthday plate. Taylor truly helped turn around a bad experience at The Pig into a much better one. We think we'll have to try the place again - if for nothing more than the beer selections that we couldn't enjoy because we had to go to a conference.
Wow!! This place was off-the-charts good!
If you love pork - this is the place! We had some cocktails to start. They have a wide selection of bourbons & bourbon-based drinks - all excellent. We started with a delicious charcuterie platter. Then a selection of appetizers -- including pork belly steamed buns and bacon wrapped peaches - unbelievable. Then, we split a full rack of ribs among us (4) and ordered some sides to split.
This is a great place for guys - bourbon, wooded rustic decor, and every variety of pork a man could ask for! Could it get much better than that? Great fun.
We went there for the pig/goat tasting menu. That menu was the best of both. Really creative, innovated used for all parts of both animals. Ingredients were seasonal, each plate was both beautiful and delicious. One of the best trading menus I've experienced - and at a price point that was beyond worth the price. Sunny forgot to sample the wines...well chosen for the cuisine.
Fantastic service on a busy Thursday evening! My server's recommendations were spot on and made my dining experience fun and delicious. Chose the Farm Stand salad on my own and shouldn't have. Hard beets and green beans which hadn't been blanched enough made up the bulk of the salad and rendered the dish difficult to enjoy despite the yummy dressing. Entree was excellent, my server's recommended favorite: grilled shrimp and pork belly with cheesy grits. The wine he suggested for pairing made me want to stay and enjoy the lively yet cozy atmosphere.
We made a last minute brunch reservation at The Pig for a group of out of town guests. While our waitress was great, and we enjoyed some of the items, our overall experience was nothing more than average. The poached eggs in the benedict were overdone, while the skillet hash had a few too many competing flavors. While the space is a bit larger than the average restaurant, there seemed to be a higher number of empty tables that one would expect for Sunday brunch. In a city with so many great brunch options, this is not a restaurant I would recommend nor return to.
Face bacon was great, but it's a lot of fat and a pretty small portion. The shank was also highly recommended so we tried it. It was a heftier portion but it was a struggle to get the meat off the huge bones. Food was good, meaty and not for the vegetarians, and quite greasy as some of the meats are inherently these parts of the pig. Food was served really fast! And the waitress checked in like 6 times in the half an hour we were there- which was fine to too frequent, which I think is always better than not checking in
