French | Capitol Hill, District of Columbia

I and my wife have been dining at Montmartre frequently over the past 15 years. The food and the service have never failed to satisfy; this place comes as close to an authentic but modern French bistro as you'll find in the US. Tables are close together, conversational noise can be loud when the place is full. But the taste of the food and the wine, the intimacy of the place and the quality of the staff combine to make any noise seem like a comfortable background buzz. More

Fabulous dinner!!!! Not knowing where to spend Valentine’s Day in DC, we went online and chose an established, family owned option. I have to admit we were a little skeptical as sometimes older restaurants lose their sheen and don’t stand up to their reputations. We were very happily surprised, and my faith in reputations has been restored. The food was superb, and classically prepared. The flavors and textures were perfectly balanced. I am having a hard time describing just how good our dinner was. The staff was equally delightful. My compliments to everyone there. Thank you! More

American | Capitol Hill, District of Columbia

The food is always good, but on this visit the restaurant ran out of fish. I had to change my order twice in order to find something that was on the menu. This location is much smaller than the 14th Street location. We were also seated near the kitchen so there was so much traffic walking backing and forth by our table. My thoughts on Ted's Bulletin, get their early if you want the salmon before they run out and try not to get seated near the kitchen. The food is good! Try to the popcorn shrimp for the appetizer and you have to get the homemade pop tarts for dessert. More

Discover Capitol Hill

Since Pierre L'Enfant decided to build the Congress House at the top of Jenkins Hill in 1791, the enormous Capitol Hill district of Washington, D.C., has grown to symbolize America to many citizens. However, this neighborhood houses a lot more than monuments and politicians. In between the old rowhouses and various parks, you'll find plenty of food options. You can start out by heading to brunch and ordering some buckwheat pancakes at one of the many early-morning spots. Capitol Hill also offers a number of barbecue joints for those looking to feast on tender meats. If you're a seafood lover, hit up a raw oyster bar or sushi restaurant. And of course, America's capital knows how to do a classic burger that even a president would love to sink their teeth into!
