Late dinner at Blue Duck Tavern, great cocktails and wine collection. The bone marrow appetizer is a must. Had the duck, wild mushrooms and the brussel sprouts, everything was done just right without any disappointments. Apple tart/pie for dessert, served with vanilla ice cream on the side (EXCELLENT). Overall would love to go back.

This was the first time to Blue Duck Tavern for my wife and I. Friends and family gave it rave reviews and it has ranked high on the Washingtonian Magazine Top 100 list for at least the past two years (#17 in 2016, #28 on the recently released 2017 rankings), so we were enthusiastic to try it. We lucked into... More

Robert was fantastic in his service to the table. The menu was creative - unique benedicts, best sticky buns ever and a great rib hash. The french press coffee was "clean" - strong, bold, yet not acidic - so smooth. This is one of my favorite breakfast spots (first time we went).

We had no idea what to expect prior to going to this restaurant. We were beyond impressed. Service was great and our food was to die for! I tried bone marrow for the first time because it was their specialty and it was delicious!!! I had the tuna for my main course and that was wonderful as well, very different!!

This DC restaurant is located in the Park Hyatt hotel. This is not a Hyatt , it's a Park Hyatt! The hotel is beautiful. Modern. The blue duck has great workstations where chefs prepare individual parts of your meal in plain site. The beef short ribs were my favorite! So tender they fell apart with a fork.

Really enjoyed the house-smoked pastrami sandwich, and I'm something of a connoisseur of this sliced meat. The bread was perfectly toasted/grilled, the sauerkraut seemed to be homemade as well, and the meat was perfect, and there was not too much of it. There really is no reason to pile it high, especially when it's this fine.

I have been dining at Blue Duck for years. It has become a family tradition to have Thanksgiving supper at BD. The food is always amazing and the service is superb. This past Saturday we were lucky enough to have the Chef's Table for 17 to say goodbye to a friend moving to Singapore. The room is perfect for a... More

Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.
