    Delicious and lively! We had a great time. Founding Farmers always makes a regular dinner feel like an occasion! For some reason our dessert was delayed (not even that much, but out of sync with our coffees) and our very kind server gave us a box of chocolates gratis in addition to the desserts. That type of touch is why we go back. Lovely evening!

    This restaurant is my favorite restaurant EVER. I come from NYC when I want it and it never disappoints. The staff is spectacular, super accommodating, and the food is top tier. Will continue to come back!

    This was my second time at this restaurant, but in a completely different seating area, by a wall of toucans. Luis was our server this evening and made the experience memorable. He was very attentive and offered wonderful recommendations for drinks, apps, and entrees. I had a delightful rose paired with a rich, buttery Japanese Hamachi for my entree. The calamari for the apps had a wonderful crunch, with a chewy inside, without being too greasy! Dessert was heavenly with a boozy cookies and cream milkshake. Will definitely be coming back!

    We tried the tasting menu along with Wine pairing and it is a lot of food and this is coming from a person who can eat. Talking about the food, there are 4 courses including the dessert and everything was great. However, the only disappointment I found was with the sesame coated Salmon, the Turkish coffee chocolate cake dessert was fantastic and olive oil cake is definitely worth trying. The wine pairings goes perfectly well with different courses and the red wine stood out for me, do give it a try it is deliciously different.

    Old Ebbitt doesn't disappoint for service and ambience - old DC politico haunt but mostly full of tourist families now. The food was good but not outstanding. My fresh oysters were plump and fresh and briny. My companions steak was cooked to order, rare. My trout was over-crusted with a heavy coating, leaving not much room for the fish itself to shine - and the fish was just this side of overcooked. Given the history of the place it's worth a stop. Just not good enough to warrant 5 stars.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
