Amazing food, horrible service every time we come. Wait staff takes forever to get drinks. Had to have management get us our check after sitting there forever. Waiter didn’t even come check on us after food was delivered. Never saw him again. More

We were concerned about ordering dinner only and hour before the concert we were attending was to begin. The food came out so very quickly and, more than the speed , the presentation and taste were simply fantastic, much to our great pleasure. Our first time there, but not our last. More

Discover Foggy Bottom

This historic district's food scene is just as worthy of investigation as its reputation for the arts is. If you're not too busy taking in some culture at the Kennedy Center or checking out the Watergate complex, you should definitely check out some of the Mediterranean counter service restaurants and classic pad Thai spots. If you're around when the weather is nice, you might even prefer to grab something to go and hang out by the waterfront while you nosh. As you might expect from an area so steeped in history, there are plenty of comfort food locations that provide hearty American, Italian and Spanish fare. Many even offer farm-to-table options, classic tavern brews, and upscale dining settings that stand in refreshing contrast to the nearby National Mall and crowded memorial scene.
