The food, wait staff (our wait staff was headed by Erica) were outstanding! Management made a point to come by the table as well. Just an overall outstanding experience.
Our party of 4 was looking for a quiet place to spend a couple hours after Jazz in the Garden. We had a few requirements. Walkable from the National Gallery Sculpture Garden. Beautiful ambience where we could talk at length. VERY good quality and outstanding dishes. Excellent wine selection. Creative cocktails. Stellar service. It just so happens that The Source fulfilled every single stipulation! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with joyful smiles, an offer to store our picnic baskets and blankets, immediately seated, and the service began with much attention to detail. Research on Yelp caused me to ask for the dumpling sampler. It was supreme! The presentation was pure art. I also requested sushi, not on the menu, but I was given 4 choices, and the dish was made as though a Japanese master resided in the kitchen! We will back next month after another visit to the National Gallery of Art.
Everything was top notch. The only reason for 4 stars was due to the length of time we waited for our food. The service was excellent. Great place, highly recommend for dates, business dinners, or special occasions.
AMAZING. One of my favorite places to eat. Impeccable service. Delicious food.
Outstanding as always, the food is perfect and the service is beyond any expectation, we go there weekly and have never been disappointed, each experience is better than the last
Love the staffs
We shared two of the dumpling appetizers (pork and shrimp). Both were delicious with just the right amount of heat.
I enjoyed my experience at the Source. They got an interesting take on Asian cuisine, which I haven’t really tried. The staff are extraordinarily courteous and the environment is ambient. I like this atmosphere when it comes to having a proper dinner.
This was one of the best dining experiences that we've had in the better part of a decade. The meal was truly a phenomenal dance of texture and flavor, the presentation was lovely and all of the serving staff were a delight. Absolutely recommend for a great date night out or special occasion.
Try the Patio. Manager a real professional with attentive care to every guest. Food outstanding
Never fails to be spectacular!
The staff at The Source made our birthday celebration a memorable one! The food was delicious and had great presentation.
Loved the entire experience food was incredible presentation picture perfect
Everyone was very accommodating and professional. The food was excellent and the prix fixe option was a great deal. The 3 delicious cookies at the end topped off a wonderful experience.
Great experience ! We loved the tasting menu every much
Truly a delicious experience. Some of the best food in town.
Simply the best... but be prepared to pay for it! We don’t mind the expense because the food is incredible!
Great dining experience!! The flavors were very one of the kind and interesting. We had a great south African wine. Our waitress was wonderful. I would recommend dining here.
Food was good but we felt like the tasting menu was not worth the cost. We did have a great time though and will be returning costumers! Thank you for making our anniversary special, service was exceptional!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The best service is always what makes us return, want to highlight that George is the BEST , extremely attentive , professional and make the dining experience a special one
Sommelier was very helpful and kind. Greatly appreciate the attentiveness if staff.
Every bite of food was amazing. Service was great. Fantastic brunch if you love dim sum, which we do.
Great atmosphere, nice selection of wines, and some excellent wait staff. Food was very tasty, but a bit expensive. Overall, high recommend for return!
Birthday, Mother’s Day and every special occasion we want to celebrate, we always think about The Source by Wolfgang Puck! And George Martinez is our favorite waiter and host!! He is very kind, attentive and friendly.
Excellent service and amazing food. The experience couldn't have been better.
We attended for Saturday brunch on our last full day in DC. Everything about the event made it a wonderful experience. We were advised to try eight dim sum plates between us and the selection gave us the opportunity to try a range of tastes and styles of cooking. Many of the items were unique I believe and made the experience. The service was outstanding and the ambience and decor lovely. Highly recommended.
I brought my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday. We’re both industry and understand when you’re trying to close up shop but please don’t offer reservations at 8:30 if you can’t accommodate a full dinner service. We felt rushed the whole time. The service was terrible. This was supposed to be an amazing 35th birthday celebration and felt like a rushed casual dining experience.
Great Peking duck.
We had an amazing meal and experience. The cooking and waitstaff were five stars and we love you all
Food was outstanding! Service was outstanding as well, waiter Andrey took excellent care of us, truly professional and caring! Thank you to All!
Mediocre food...grossly over-priced. Whst more can one say?
Extremely well pleased. Enjoyed celebrating my fiancé’s birthday. His name was printed on the Menu and the Manager called him by his name when he came over to wish him a happy birthday!🎂 ...and he was given a delicious carrot cake and ice cream dessert!! Had a great South African red 🍷.
We went there for my wife's birthday. I noted that the occasion was for a birthday when I made the res on Open Table. When we checked in the host greeted us with a Happy Birthday as did all servers and managers we interacted with. They even had Happy Birthday printed on our menus.
Server was very helpful and offered great wine suggestions.
Food was excellent.
Will definite be returning here on our next visit to DC!
Lovely experience—food, ambience, service. Definitely a place to return to and recommend
Our first visit. Food was well prepared and delicious. Service was attentive. A great evening meal.
Great food and service
Ericka waiter was great
We went for my birthday and the staff was absolutely lovely! So attentive and very delicious food. Highly recommend!
I have wanted to come to this place for a long time. The source did not disappoint. We ordered the two Person Peking duck dish and it was delicious, tender and tasty. The accompaniments were well chosen and could be sweet, spicy, crunchy as one wished. The service was attentive. We would
recommend it and will come again for try their dim sum
Great service and ambiance - excellent food, albeit a bit unoriginal and not authentic.
