A perfect Thanksgiving dinner! The inn was decorated; the tables spaces far apart and the service was exemplary.

Pearl Dive is always great…the staff are all friendly, sincerely helpful and welcoming, unlike some other restaurants on the street. We always feel like Norm walking into Cheers! The food is extremely consistent and the drinks are on point. And if you’re looking for THE neighborhood bar scene in Logan Circle, you’ve found it.

Everything was amazing!! I highly recommend making a reservation, we did, and it was very busy. Our server was very attentive and was able to answer all of our questions and give us suggestions. Everything came out in a timely manner and was delicious. The bread was hot and I am just melted in your mouth. I highly recommend the spicy marinara if you like spice. We will be coming back!

We were there for brunch. The food was delicious. Highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros and Shrimp and Grits. Flavor explosion. It is a little of a challenge when everyone in your party doesn't order the same courses. If someone orders the set 3-course brunch and another orders just the a la carte items there can be a significant delay in the arrival of a la carte items. No big deal but just something to be aware of when attending brunch as a group.

The staff are so welcoming and the restaurant is beautiful. Our server, Eric was very helpful in walking us through the menu. The appetizers were delicious- bone marrow escargot and mussels! We all had different steaks and sides...everything was phenomenal, especially the truffle Mac and cheese! Dessert was chocolate bread pudding...so good!! We will definitely be back!

Excellent meal. Being picky 1) stuffing with Thanksgiving meal was overthought, too fussy. Everything else was delicious. 2) dessert menu should have had a chocolate option. 3) waiter should ask if we wanted to take home leftovers- there was a lot of turkey left over and while appreciated the huge portion, I think it is a sin to waste food but in a fancy restaurant I was too embarrassed to ask for a carton but if asked would have said “yes.” Especially for thanksgiving the leftovers are the best part. 4) for close to $500, for just my husband and me, I would think we would have both been given a goody bag of 3 caramels. 5) menu lacked “mock tails” and other soft drinks. Espresso coffee drinks would be welcome. These are my thoughts because this is my go-to for a an amazing D.C. dining experience. I will definitely be back for another great meal. Thank you. Nancy

Love this neighborhood place. Second visit recently and brought friends. This time we were in the back room which was relatively quiet despite being full. Service was great at 6:30. I had the special tomato soup and a delightful goat cheese salad and a glass of prosecco. I shared a slice of Alex's cake which was superb...a square of sweet and crunchy. One friend had Moules Mariniere and the other had baked mussels and a beet salad. We were all stuffed when done and all agreed our entire meals were top notch. Will be returning. We are all recommending this place to foodie friends.

Nostos is hidden away off Leesburg Pike….but once you find it, you are in for a treat. The menu is diverse including both vegetarian and carnivorian fare. The waiters are very attentive. All choices by our table of five were excellent. It was Greek food at its best.

The 1789 remains one of the great restaurants in the DMV. Service, food and atmosphere stand out as hallmarks of this warm facility. Richard McCooey started a great tradition and Clydes Restaurant Group has continued this wonderful attention to details. Always a fun and enjoyable experience at the 1789.

Located in Georgetown along the canal in a beautiful, old building. The interior is welcoming and worth a walk around to view its decor. We were there over the Christmas/New Years holidays and Filomena's is sure to impress with the holiday decorations as well. The food is Wonderful with Generous portions. "Doggie bags" are a must. Everything is homemade, fresh, mouthwatering, and delicious. Filomena's is reminiscent of going home to dine with an Italian family devoted to authentic regional cuisine served in a welcoming atmosphere. A wonderful experience and not to be missed ;)
