The worst service ever. I warn you not to go. The service sucks. They sat us by the door and all you smell is weed. Asked to speak to the manager and she was non chalant. I guess that's because she was young. You will regret it if you go. I've warned you you.

We became hungry in our hotel late at night. The only place open for real food was TGIF's. The food was fast, hot and fresh.

You can see the reviews I write and will notice I am not one for writing bad reviews in general. When I do, it's because the place was horrible. My level of tolerance and acceptance is above average, and I try to be understanding. So know that when I write a bad review, the majority of people would have had... More

Situated between George Washington University, the World Bank and the IMF, you'd expect this place to be buzzing with activity at lunchtime. The fact that it was nearly empty should have been a clue as to what was to come. The greeter didn't even acknowledge us; her first words to my group of four was "follow me". Our server took...

The place was filthy, they didn't have a single draft beer available, the food was overcooked deep fried crap. A horrible experience from start to finish.

I've been to a few TGI Fridays and this shouldn't even be on the list. As the heading states, nothing good. We waited to be seated, table was broken, moved to another, server was not there and we were eventually tended to periodically by other servers and a manager who were walking by. Sadly the restaurant only appeared to be... More

The place was dirty service was terrible and the employees have had enough. I talked to many employees during our visit and found most were fed up with managements constant under staffing. I talked to so many because I basically waited on our table of four. Talked to the hostess when I went to station to get a wet cloth... More

It was our last day of our trip to DC and we just wanted a familiar place to eat so we decided to go to Fridays. We got seated and had to wait a little over 10 mins for the waitress to show up. This happened because a gentleman in red long sleeves I suppose manager or supervisor came to... More
