There were four of us and we ordered several things and shared. Atmosphere is casual. For desert, order the waffle with strawberries and whip cream....delicious.

While visiting from NYC we had the pleasure of dining at Rumors twice. The waiter who we were lucky to get was very polite and handsome! He recommended the crab cakes special and it was amazing! The crab tasted very fresh. They even made green salads for us that weren't on the menu. The second time we ate there was... More

Stumbled across Rumors tonight after a very long walk around Washington. Each had a couple of drinks and ate clam spaghetti and jambalaya. Really attentive service, never waited for another drink. Food was excellent, extremely tasty. Check it out!

Was told by the front desk staff about this place. We asked for a pub /somewhere to watch a baseball game. And this was her suggestion . Walked in and was seated quickly at 7pm . Server was friendly and gave a few recommendations. Food arrived quickly and was quite hot. You could tell it was made and brought out... More

The restaurant disappointed mainly because of the service and inconsistent food. Our waitress was friendly enough. Lacking was knowledge of the menu and a reasonable command of the english language. Clearly she had little on site. In addition the tacos and the wings were not very good, rather mealy and lacking freshness. The location itself is ok and the interior... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to have lunch and we stumbled upon Rumors. After looking at several restaurants in the area which were definitely Millennial type establishments, we found Rumors to be our kind of place. The food had a variety of things to choose from brunch to sandwiches and entrees. The wait staff is very... More

We have bought a groupon for brunch at this place and were very much disappointed. We didn't save at all and ended up with paying full price for a very casual and tasteless meal. Nothing special, no ambiance, a very poor and even shabby interior. We didn't like it at all. We chose it for location and left very disappointed... More

We had a nice dinner after a long day in the office on the terrace of Rumors. I tried the Chesapeake Crabcake, which was actually quite delicious, light and well presented, with fresh fruit on the side and nice dips.

A fabulous evening. Buffalo wings were mind blowing. And the daiquiris well made. Having a young child with us was well accommodated by the restaurant staff. Courtesy and hospitality was outstanding. Strongly recommended.
