A classic continues to impress. Food and service was excellent, as was the atmosphere. TuTu was great as our server.
The actual experience didn’t live up to the very favorable reviews. The server was very nice, but it took over 45 minutes to get our entrees delivered, and they were lukewarm when they arrived. The food was OK, but not great. Nice, bubbly atmosphere with lots of noise, but nothing special in terms of food or timing. Seems like a place living on an old, positive reputation but not still earning it.
Great experience! The service and food was fantastic
Old Ebbitt has always been quite good and this was no exception. Food and drinks were quite good and the service was excellent. The ping on the ambience was because we were in the very back of the restaurant and we looked out over the lobby of the office building.
Old Ebbitt’s has been one of my favorite DC restaurants since finding it 7 years ago and tonight’s service and meal were no exception. We started with oysters & drinks, then great entrees ranging from swordfish to meatloaf (I had the swordfish but had pork chop envy—it was at least 6” tall and very juicy), followed by apple crumble for dessert—all really good. I am glad they were able to accommodate the 5 of us with short notice and I am hoping work or play brings me back to DC soon so I can eat at Ebbitt’s again.
The food, ambiance, and service were outstanding. It was the best dining we’ve enjoyed in quite some time. Our waiter, Ronnie, was professional, warm, and friendly. It was a wonderful evening.
The only place to be and be seen is you are a power broker
Love this restaurant, a must visit when in DC. The service is amazing as is the food. Great place to go late at night also.
Didn't find the menu to be very special. Service was good and they had a lot of staff.
Good food, timely service, good value for the quality and portions
The service is amazing, Sam gave great recommendations. The bread budding is to die for so definitely recommend it.
Delicious food. The homemade pastas were amazing. Highly recommend the oysters as well as the artichoke crab dip as appetizers.
It was great.
This place was amazing! The food is probably the best I've had in DC. Our server was phenomenal as well. Would definitely recommend.
The service was excellent to include asking right up front about food allergies! The food was absolutely delicious! The shrimp cake got 10 stars! Most refreshing was you were fully staffed! No apologies for being understaffed . Staff was polite, friendly, and helpful! Wish I lived closer as I would be there often!
From reservation to checkin to the service and meal our 34th wedding anniversary was elevated by the staff at Old Ebbitt Grill.

Great food, great drinks, friendly staff. Sam the bartender is the absolute best!
Food and ambiance was perfect. Great place to take family when visiting DC!
Exceptional dining and food. Would highly recommend.
Party of five — dinner was nice
Would recommend . Food was great
We brought our 8 year old son to DC for the first time. I’d read previous reviews and was excited to try it. Our table was not in the actual restaurant but in some sort of atrium of a building. Part of the dining experience here is the history, architecture and overall feel of the restaurant. Sadly we paid $193 for 3 people and did not get to experience any of it. The food was good and our server was nice although we felt rushed throughout the entire dinner. I feel there are many other places to try other than this one.
Been there several times over the years.
Excellent food and service. Old Ebbitt Grill is one of my favorite restaurants.
We used to be regulars at Old Ebbitts but moved making regular visits impractical. We were surprised at the price increases with raw bar items and alcoholic drinks. Unfortunately fir D.C. this circumstance is more the normal.
Wings nor calamari were good
Amazing location! Everything about the restaurant was beautiful. Service was prompt and made us feel very taken care of. Food was great. Must try if in DC and love seafood!
Nice to eat here after living outside the DC area for years. Loved the Bloody Mary with the prawn!
Place was amazing. Oysters were fantastic. Kurt our server was the best. Great overall experience
As usual, good and served impeccable
Great history about Old Ebbitt grill. Horseradish glazed meatloaf is awesome.
Our meals were exceptional, service was excellent. Price was fair for the quality.
Our server was excellent and I wish I remembered her name. She definitely made us feel special. She was a GW student...
Eric provided excellent friendly service-and stimulating conversation!
Great food, great service, and great ambiance!
Food was fantastic. Can’t wait to come back.
Good food and a nice booth. Great selection of menu options. Historical place.
