I was disappointed. We got to the restaurant early because we had tickets to a concert starting at 7:30. The place was not very busy when we got there except for a reception on the first floor. After having to literally squeeze my way through a bunch of people we were seated upstairs where it was not very busy. The service was good until the restaurant started getting busy and it then went downhill. Had to get up and find our waiter to get our check to leave.

The food....the dumpling appetizers were very soggy. I ordered the Branzino and when the waiter set it down it was beautiful but before I could get a word out he started pouring a sauce all over it and drowned the fish in a sticky, sweet overpowering sauce that was awful. The meal came with a side of asparagus and peas that were in a bowl with another sweet teriyaki type sauce that left no hint of the flavor of the vegetables. I barely ate my food and my bill with tip was over $100. Would not go back.

We went for our anniversary. We had a great time, the staff was very friendly, and the food was excellent. We were not expecting anything but when the end of the evening was
approaching we had gotten a small anniversary dessert. It was unexpected and a wonderful surprise.

I haven't been in awhile and I was really excited that the food was as good if not better than I remembered. 3 of us split the 8-plate dim sum tasting menu and it was delicious!

Lunch was very good but we miss the former lunch menu and the “amuse Bouches” which the chef used to serve to lunch diners , including the tuna tartar cones and the green Beans with pecans . And the chocolate chip cookies weren’t the usual — still warm and gushing over with chocolate chunks —Also service was a bit slower than usual —- busy day I guess —

Drinks were creative and delicious. We ordered the scallops and the Amish half chicken. Both were well prepared and tasted great. Service was super slow. At one point it felt like we were forgotten. It's a nice place for dinner over all.

Bright, modern dining environment. Interesting dishes. Location convenient to the National Gallery. Quite pricy considering the very small portions. You will go hungry unless you have a $50 pp lunch budget.

So many delicious options! The table gave the dumplings a go and the shrimp were the winner. We had varied options across the table for dinner and everything was wonderful. Not a complaint amongst the five of us. The carrot cake won the dessert round.

Great drinks and great service. Highly recommended!

This one didn't quite meet my expectations. The service was spotty and we received dirty flatware...I expected a more attentive staff at a place like this. The food, we have mixed reviews, the lobster dumpling appetizer was excellent. Our fish entrees were fine but unremarkable. I'm not sure I will return here.

We stopped in for brunch, not aware that the menu was Dim Sum, (which I typically do not like*), with a choice of 5 or 8 selections. We were three people and chose the 8 dishes. It was nothing short of magnificent! So creative, so good and so unique. I highly recommend this restaurant for Saturday brunch (closed Sunday). In addition to the food being great, the service was excellent and the host and server were friendly. The server was knowledgeable as well. Can't wait to try it for lunch and dinner.
* I can no longer claim to not like Dim Sum.
This is one of the best Puck restaurants I have been too, although I've never been disappointed at any

We had a FANTASTIC dinner. 2 of us split the duck and the fennel and blood orange salad. It was so delicious. I had the flourless chocolate dessert and we all had a taste. Before dinner, the bartender made me a special drink based on my favorite flavors❤️❤️

The food here is exceptional. Uncharacteristically, the service this time was a bit inconsistent. The food more than made up for that, though. We started with potstickers and dumplings, both of which were superb. Then we moved on to scallops and halibut, equally delicious. Dessert was cheesecake, somewhat disappointing, and chocolate soufflé, wonderful.

Always a great evening out when eating at The Source. The food is creative and beautifully prepared, the service is very professional, and the atmosphere is calm but not too quiet. We were celebrating a big birthday, and they brought out extra desserts for our group, which we had not ordered. Very thoughtful service.
