Came here for dinner with a few friends on a business trip to DC. I didn't know what to expect from a "Chinese" restaurant run by Wolfgang Puck. Surprisingly, the food was pretty decent, not all authentic but good. We got a few appetizers, some good some mediocre. For the main course, we ordered the Peking duck (2 ways) and... More

This was our second time here with two couples, and so we thought we knew what to expect. Each of us had a cocktail and starters, and then a main course. The food is extremely tasty but also extremely rich. I had the calamari, but also tasted the dumplings and the kale salad as a starter. I had the chicken,... More

Two of us came for Saturday brunch and selected 8 tasting dishes which were perfectly portioned to share. My favorites were the "dan dan" dumplings and duck bun. Enjoy!

This is Wolfgang Puck's restaurant for Asian fusion and it lives up to the Wolfgang Puck name. Unlike a lot of weirder, out-there Asian fusion, this one delivers satisfying, delicious food with good flavors every time I've been there. What do I mean by flavors? Some Asian fusion restaurants pair really different flavors together in the name of experimentation, but... More

The plates are made to be shared. Delicious Bloody Marys with bountiful garnishes. Dinner The Hot Pot table is also fun and beyond delicious ..you can only... More

Has wine, dumplings and 'lions head " dish at the bar downstairs. Wine was fine, dumplings were minimal and overpriced, lions head was disgusting. Not like real Chinese lions head (which is a huge tasty meatball), this was some crazy white chef invention. But it was gross, super hot sauce with massive garlic taste. I got sick that night, and...

For a family birthday, we visited a first-rate DC spot. Although it's part of chef/entrepreneur Wolfgang Puck's empire, the Source has its own respected chef, Scott Drewno. The restaurant premises and the food are Asian-inspired, but no one particular cuisine dominates. My spouses and I skipped starters because our entree sounded as if it might be quite filling, and we... More
