  • Yes, I love this place. Great cocktails and yummy steak tartare.

  • Haven’t been there in years, but I used to love it. It had the best cheese cart in town, though there is certainly more competition now.

  • I ate there just last night with some colleagues and really liked it. I knew the place years ago when it was the Tabard Inn and served yards of beer (this was in the early 90s) but this was my first time eating there under this set-up. Food and service was really good, although it’s not a cheap eats kind of place. Apparently the fries are the house specialty and everyone at the table really liked them.

    If you’re looking for a good table-sharing dessert, try the plate of petit fours.

  • I took my wife here Valentine’s Day 2011 and experienced the LAMBSHANK REDEMPTION… this entree was so perfectly cooked and sauced and SIZED… when you eat this thing you’ll swear you are hearing a John Williams score and Morgan Freeman narration.

  • Good restaurant, some movers and shakers to be seen at lunchtime. They make a good Arnold Palmer.

  • A couple of the most memorable meals I’ve ever had, and yes, the Lambshank is truly amazing. And even more convenient now that I live in NE.

  • My husband and I had our first date here five years ago and loved it then (big thumbs up on the steak tartare.) We hadn’t been back since so we went in Oct. to celebrate our anniversary and it was just as good as I remembered. He definitely reeled me in with that pick on the first date.

  • Ate there at a Board meeting. Expensive and the food was barely mediocre for dinner. It seemed as if the only spice they had in the kitchen was salt.

    I have heard their scallops are great however and they are cheaper for lunch versus dinner.

  • It is in NW.

  • One of the most consistently delicious restaurants in DC… the french onion soup should not be missed, and you can never go wrong with any of the specials. If you’re there for breakfast, the eggs florentine is out of this world.

  • Delicious. Had a pork chop entree. Cooked to perfection. I love pork.

  • Another reason to love it: The Quizmaster of Georgia Avenue works there!

  • mmm their Crème Brûlée was amazing!

  • hmm, maybe i’ll have to try again. my experience was less than stellar. i never send anything back, but had to send the salmon back to the kitchen, it was basically raw when served…

    Was there earlier this week. Please, if you go, order a side of the mac and cheese. This is the most delicious I’ve ever had, with a light creamy cheese sauce with the perfect touch of white wine flavor just oozing out of larger than normal macaroni noodles. It put the rest of my meal to shame (and the meal was quite good!).

  • They’re a great choice for restaurant week…they basically put the whole menu on there! Duck is amazing.

  • Haven’t been there for a while, but it’s never missed being wonderful in all the years I’ve been going there. Great cocktails and breakfast and French specialties for lunch & dinner. It used to be our escape on St. Patrick’s day from the noisy Irish places on Mass. Ave.
