We decided to try Open City during our most recent trip to the area for business. We were very happy with our choice when it was all said and done! The food was very high quality and cooked perfectly! I highly recommend the pizzas on...More

After being seated, we waited at our table for at least 15 minutes, with no wait staff showing any interest in taking our order. We eventually got up and left, and they didn't seem to register any interest in that either. They clearly didn't want...More

We eat here every time we’re staying in DC @ the Omni Shoreham. It’s across the street. Food is pretty good & not overpriced with one caveat: refills to warm up your coffee are $1.50! In all my life, I’ve never paid for a coffee...More

I've rarely left a restaurant prior to dining, but this place made the grade, thanks to the manager's ungracious attitude towards our party, one of whom committed the horrific act of carrying an unfinished bottle of beer from a reception across the street into the...More

We were greeted by a host that had no expression and no enthusiasm for his job, which did not bode for a welcoming feeling. This was very convenient to our hotel so we got a take out sandwich one afternoon, which was very good. We...More

This place seems to be very popular - it was crowded on a Friday morning. Although the service is nice, it's slow and not really attentive - we first good the food and way later the coffee. The food is very average (breakfast).

A lot of people go there on Saturday morning but they can handle quite a few. My experience has been 30-40 minutes. If you can you can send somebody ahead to sign in so everybody doesn't have to wait.
