We dined here since it was close to Fords Theater where we had tickets for a performance that evening. The hostess seated us in a private nook which was quiet and made conversation easy. The server was very friendly and helpful with explaining the menu. The calamari appetizer was very tasty with a nice cocktail sauce accompanying it. We both enjoyed our entrees. We got seafood and found it delicious and well prepared. No room for dessert. We hope to go back. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Malik was our server and absolutely was the best server we have had. He was attentive, helpful and very personable even with being sat with several tables at the same time. I have dined in other restaurants in the harbor and at McCormick’s several times and have had sub par service that impacts the enjoyment of the meal. I will be back again to specifically be served by Malik. That’s how great he was. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The waiter served our wine in warm glasses. When we questioned him, he said they just came out of the dishwasher, and he didn't offer to get alternates. He obviously has not been trained well. Not the quality you expect form a top steak and fish house. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Washington DC's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The dining room has a clubby, timeless elegance that is calming in and of itself. Service is quiety attentive. Our starters were excellent; we were both appropriately enticed by the octapus. I ordered as a main course the haibut which could have been more assertively flavored; my dining companion enjoyed the Dover sole, an indulgence that the Lafayette's traditional version measured up to The sole was artfully filleted tableside, accompanied by the superb playing on the piano of Tom Vogt. In fact Tom is the primary reason we dine a few times a year here. Many diners stopped by to tell Tom how much they enjoyed his music. We did, too. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Marcel's never disappoints - I only wish we could go more often. On this occasion, we did the pre-theater menu before a show at the Kennedy Center, and the service was efficient yet did not feel rushed at all. The food was, as always spectacular - the lobster flan was a delightful new treat on this occasion and well worth the upcharge. The car service to the show is fantastic, and I would say that it sets Marcel's in a class its own, but the food and service alone honestly deserve that merit. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Discover Washington, D.C.
An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
