Attended a birthday celebration here. Had a tomato based seafood soup and the wild boar chops. Both were excellent. Tried the wings and they were good as well. Great service and atmosphere. Definitely a hidden gem in DC.

My sister is a vegetarian (not quite vegan) and they accommodated her. So, I believe they would accommodate a vegan, as well. I would call the restaurant to double check that way there are no surprises.
