There are not a huge number of choices on the menu but, they were all so good. Portions were just right. We had both meat and fish. The restaurant is one step up from casual and quite attractive. We saw customers attired from quite casual to quite elegant and all looked happy and comfortable. The place was packed and the... More

Overall this was a great dinner. The room was small but very well laid out and the food was very good. Like that they have the option of half portions. However, the service could have been more attentive. Must have walked past my table four time when I had an empty wine glass and did not come by until out... More

I actually have mixed feelings about Unum. On the one hand they serve creative and healthy food with many options to please everyone at the table. The restaurant is nice and cozy, and the service prompt and friendly. On the other hand I cannot help being a little bit disappointed. Every dish we had was prepared perfectly, nicely arranged on...

Went for dinner on New Year's Eve. Delicious food but slow service, tiny portions, and loud for an intimate setting. Would not go back again as there are so many other choices in Georgetown

Unum is a small, sophisticated restaurant with excellently prepared dishes. The chef knows his way around pure concentrated flavors, fresh herbs, and very flavorful combinations. The menu is varied, and thoughtfully designed to please any appetite or budget. Many DC restaurants are copycat; ordinary and overpriced but Unum stands out as unique.

One of the staff from the Ritz Georgetown suggested that we go to Unum, and I'm so glad we did! There is no shortage of restaurants in this area, so what sets Unum apart? Wonderful food ... we loved the branzini and the brussels sprouts. Fresh and amazing taste. And the staff ... I have a number of eating restrictions,... More

Lost in town, with all these fancy restaurants busy on Friday night. Came in here and sat at bar, super nice bartender, fantastic and speedy food. Can't complain. Saved my night, 5 star

Great little restaurant - super attentive waiters, tables far enough apart that you don't hear them and a really nice wine list, to go with their very tasty. Our favorites were the gnocchi and the cauliflower. Plate sizes are perfect for sharing with friends.

Located close to the Four Seasons, we walked over for a quiet dinner. Food was delicious. We shared the roasted cauilflower starter and then I enjoyed the roasted organic chicken (Shenandoah Valley Farms breast and herbed leg medallions with jus of olives, capers, dried fruit with roasted fingerling potatoes. My husband ordered sesame crusted norwegian salmon risotto with edamame, shiitake... More

We chose small portions and enjoyed to heritage tomato salsa, gazpacho , braided beef on pasta and clams with cod. We also had the roasted olives. Dessert was a bit plain, but overall we were...
