Two of us arrived without reservations at 6 before going to Kennedy Center. Busy happy hour, full tables and bar. The hostess went out of her way to accommodate us and made sure there was room at the bar, even added 2 barstools for us....More

This is one of my favorite spots when I am in the city. Great solo, for a date, friends night or for business. The atmosphere, decor and food are fabulous and cannot wait to go back. Anything on the menu is worth trying!

Right off Dupont Circle at P Street NW, this little cafe offers better than average salads, burgers and sides. Service is quick and efficient.

Very good. Had the mac and cheese and it was great. Just a very small portion. It was on the “small plates” but at almost $11 I expected a little more. Very small location and got crowded quickly for lunch. Would recommend to others.

This restaurant is conveniently located right on DuPont Circle. The menu is varied, offering my favorite- pumpkin ravioli in a sage butter sauce. Nice selection of wine and beer. Monday offers half price wine bottles.
