    Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing, the omelette and waffle stations were on point, our server, Moses was incredibly attentive, as was the rest of the staff. What an incredibly pleasurable experience on a dreary Sunday morning. My only complaint of anything was it was a little loud once the DJ arrived, but did not take away from the experience. Definitely coming back.

    The Greenhouse at the Jefferson Hotel has retained its character and ambiance over the many years I have had the opportunity to dine there. None better that I've experienced in DC except a few and those that were (sadly) lost to Covid impact.

    Our food and service was absolutely incredible. The recommendations our server made were amazing, and the quality and value were top notch. Went for lunch with a group of 5 people and loved everything and the food came out perfectly and quickly. Can't wait to go again!

Discover District of Columbia

The District of Columbia is a place where eating out can be an adventure. Caribbean, Italian, and Pakistani cuisine can be found in the area. You can also dine on classic American fare, seafood, and barbecue. Try the Jamaican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin or the steak churrasco for a taste of the Caribbean. If you plan to eat Italian cuisine, sample the gamberi, cannelloni, or the pollo parmigiano. The District of Columbia’s Pakistani fare is traditional with dishes like Punjabi boti chicken tikka, goat dum biryani, or the butter chicken. For breakfast, you might like steel cut oats, organic cottage cheese and fresh fruit, or French toast and beef hash. This is a destination where the food is almost as good as the sights.
