My wife & I had Thanksgiving dinner at The Tavern, but I enjoyed my meal more than my spouse. I had the rack of lamb which was prepared perfectly (medium rare) & the accompanying asparagus & potato au gratin complimented the meal nicely. My wife chose the traditional route & had the turkey, stuffing, & mashed potatoes, all of which disappointed her. She said the turkey was dry, the cornbread stuffing tasted like it was out of a box, & the mashed potatoes did not have any gravy on them. Other than that, The Tavern is a beautiful spot & we both agreed we want to return & try their regular menu

We went there for the Thanksgiving brunch expecting it to be quite nice for the high fixed price. The food and service were good overall, but for $55/person they served us only 3 slices of white meat turkey and no dark meat at all, along with a few sides. The quality was decent but the men left the table hungry and when we saw the bill, it was: Wow! We can't believe they would have the gall to charge that much for less turkey than you would get on a sandwich!!

We travel to DC for an annual meeting and this was our second trip to the restaurant. We love the quaint atmosphere and the chance for relaxed conversation over a delicious meal. The pork chops were excellent, as was the salmon. Delicious soup! Very attentive--but never intrusive--wait staff. We'll plan to return on our next trip!

Got there in the afternoon and were told that High tea doesn’t start until 2. So they accommodated us in the mean time. We ordered a Eggs Benedict to share and tea. The tea was Luke warm and we didn’t get a refill on the water until our high tea was practically over. The water went from Luke warm to cold fairly quickly with the weather. The scones were made fresh, outside of that, the rest of the pastries were old. The crust on the tart was soggy. A cute location for a high tea, just didn’t meet the standard that was expected

Our meal was hot and delicious! It was close to the Newseum and we had no trouble finding parking on a Saturday. We will definitely be going back when we visit DC and we also checked into getting a room there the next time also.

Lovely place, nice food, poor service! While the food was fine, the Henley lovey & well appointed, the service was poor. Only one waiter was handling the bar and dining room, with the support of two "bus" employees. He had his hands full, and kept a good attitude but twice, customers came and stood by his work area to get the bill. We were given the bill before being asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. No wine list was ever provided. It took 10+ minutes and 2 requests to get lemon for our water. It's a real shame because the food was well prepared, the dining room is simply lovely, and even better, quiet enough so that conversation is easy. Management needs to pay some attention to staffing.

Loved the peaceful atmosphere. Can be hard to find a peaceful place at the end of the day when you are tired and want quiet.

Had the porkchop. Huge and tasty. Caesar salad was a little on the small side but fresh. Service was perfect. Juan was my server, but another waiter assisted when a drink refill was needed. Kind servers.

Will give back.

It was unfortunate that there was a speaker at a microphone I. The main bar area broadcasting in the direction of the conservatory room where we had pre-requested seating for the ambience - why subject diners who select a quiet looking room to have to hear an unwanted business pitch

The food was quite good but access to our convention hotel was key to reserving a table. The servers were inattentive and almost dismissive as if our party, waiting for a third, did not deserve their attention. Our request for dinner rolls elicited a perfunctory " still baking" and resulted in rolls for dessert. The rolls really were excellent and would have enhanced our dinner experience.

Honestly, it's a very nothing special restaurant in a boutique hotel. For the same money there are multitudinous places in this area or a short Uber ride away. You could have just as easily gotten a burger and salad at the Marriott across the street. All in all, not worth the trip

A quiet gem tucked away on Massachusetts Ave. across from the monstrous Marriott "Marquis". Warm, convivial decor throughout the public spaces. The Tavern restaurant itself is intimate, perhaps 16-20 places, with an adjacent room to expand when necessary. Refreshing break from sterile "zen" (which is also nice at hits own time) with lush table settings and fine service. Short, thoughtful menu with good attention paid to wines. Tab is very reasonable for this level and in loud, loud DC - the silence is golden.

lunch the next day. Everything was
so PERFECT except for service. Food
came reasonably fast but never saw
waitress again until we finished eating. In all fairness, there was a large event in the adjoining room.
Regardless, I'd go back often if I

The sandwiches especially the smoked salmon and egg salad were great... I was filled up by the time I had both scones and all the sandwiches... I had to save the desserts for later... just wish we saw more or the server as we were placed in a location of the hotel where it was difficult to signal a need to a server ... especially as the tea got cold... but they eventually came... will visit again!
