Blue Duck Tavern
Blue Duck Tavern

American | West End, District of Columbia

Arrived early for lunch so had a drink in the bar in the left hand side of the restaurant. A quiet, clean and tidy area with an efficient, professional and friendly barman. When the time came for our reservation we walked over to the reception area and one of the two girls on the desk led us to our table to the right hand side of the restaurant. This area was much busier and therefore much noisier. We were sat between two tables which had not been cleared and were cluttered with dirty plates and uneaten meals. When we questioned this the girl just looked at us, sniggered and walked off. So we got up and returned to the seating area near to the bar and asked the server there if we could have a table in this area. He was only too happy to accommodate us and found us a table for two straight away. So after an initially bad start everything turned out well, our meal was lovely and so was our server Armand. We never saw the sniggering girl again and I doubt she even noticed we’d left as she hadn’t noticed all the tables that needed clearing ! More

An EXCELLENT go-to place for any meal... professional meeting, casual meal or especially brunch too on days it is offered. Valet parking comped to a very reasonable rate - and super convenient - is an added plus that keeps me coming back. More

We had an amazing server Brianna, who was very knowledgeable of the menu and offered her favorite drinks and menu items which we took her up on. It was free salsa lesson night, which has the energy and noise level to a high volume. The dishes are made to share and we ordered Several. The only small plate we ordered that we didn’t enjoy was the pork cubes and caramelized onions. The pork lacked flavor and the onions weren’t quite as caramelized. The empanadas were absolutely amazing. The bacon wrapped Maduros were Perfect. The pork ribs with the spicy rum sauce was also good, but could’ve been a bit warmer as it arrived to our table. Last but not least the churros were a nice touch to end our meal. A good date night spot and we will be back again for salsa lesson. More
