Went to Mari Vanna for my 30th birthday and had an absolutely amazing meal! The food is so great, the atmosphere is amazing and the guy walking around playing the accordion just adds to the awesome ambience. My Boyfriend had put on the reservation that it was my birthday and they came out with a whole crowd playing the accordion and tambourines and brought free dessert. It was so awesome I will be back soon! More

Sushi | Dupont Circle, District of Columbia

Exceptional omakase - leaves you full, but not at the point of explosion. Closest thing to Japanese first-rate sushi that we've had in America. Kudos to the Itamae. It was very quiet/near empty the night we dined - sincerely hope that was an aberration. We saw lines forming at Sushi Taro in the Dupont Circle region. They are different experiences, but we liked Ogawa perhaps incrementally better. The service at Sushi Ogawa was impeccable. Some of the negative reviews either: A) are one-off experiences, or B) written by customers who perhaps don't have a baseline for what makes for great omakase. More

Peruvian | Dupont Circle, District of Columbia

Totally authentic and unbelievable Peruvian food. Their octopus and ceviche was the highlight for me, but others in our party loved the lamb, short rib, Lomo Saltado and an incredible fish dish. They were all so good I honestly have never eaten so much. There was nothing we didn’t all thoroughly enjoy. And the service was absolutely 5 star. Priscilla was our waitress and she could not have been sweeter, more attentive or more helpful with selecting the most delicious food on their menu. The various flavors of Pisco Sours that they have were also incredibly delicious. This is easily one of our favorite restaurants in the DMV area after tonight. Could not give a more stellar review. Cannot wait to come back!!!! More

A busy plce, with a sense of humor, takes it food and drink seriously, and respectfully serves gorgeous fare at a sensible pace. Couples, loners, groups, all are welcome and treated equitably. SErvers and hosts bend over backwards to accommadate each quest. More

Italian | Dupont Circle, District of Columbia

I loved the Italian Food Walking Tour in Dupont Circle. Dave was very knowledgeable about the food, restaurants, and the area architecture. The food at each restaurant was simple and the courses complimented each other. The wild mushroom risotto first course and lasagna were my favorite courses. We had a nice variety of old established restaurants and one newer trendier place on the tour. I would definitely go back to each of them. It was a filling afternoon, but walking a few blocks between locations helped to burn off some of the calories! Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a leisurely afternoon of eating and meeting new people. More
