Brunch was delicious. They’re remodeling right now, but you would never know it. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was delicious and fairly priced especially for being right on DuPont Circle. Would visit again. Coffee was rich and dark brew.

Loved my Sunday Brunch. The atmosphere and staff were excellent. They had no problems accomodating my diet (I eat gluten, grain and sugar free).

We came after a bike ride for lunch and most of our party got entree salads. The food was fantastic and good service. Entree salads are a good size.

Stayed at this hotel recently and thought we’d try out the hotel’s restaurant, which is not normally something we do as we like to sample the tastes the city has to offer. We weren’t disappointed, my wife had a fantastic risotto and I had a...More
