Lovely elegant restaurant. Very comfortable seating, well spaced tables, soft lighting, sophisticated muted toned decor. Moderate noise level. We did the tasting menu with wine matching. Our server was a character and took great care of us. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented....More

The food was excellent - especially the tuna - with very nice accompanying wine. Ambiance relaxed and a semi-formal decor. Really good for a group dinner - staff helpful and informative without being too keen or over bearing. Would happily go back when in DC!

Had dinner at Corduroy bar after attending a nearby conference. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Had the three course dinner: very tasty tomato soup, soft shell crab, and chocolate cake. Highly recommend.

The surrounding construction is ignored in Corduroy. The spot goes overboard on highly professional over the top service. You pay for it, but dining is made easy for those who may not choke on some prices.The offerings are somewhat unique and tasty, but lacked seasoning...More

Outstanding customer service, outstanding food. Wear something fancy. We told a corduroy joke and the waitress didn't get it, but in all honestly the joke wasn't all that good.
