Contemporary American

K Street, the road to the White House, is also the proud home to P.J. Clarke’s—the storied American Saloon with a history that dates back to the late 1800s. The original P.J. Clarke’s in Manhattan has stood beneath rows of skyscrapers for nearly 130 years, collecting famous and infamous regulars. Appreciated for the convivial ambiance and classic fare, P.J. Clarke’s is the quintessential American Saloon.
In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.

The bartender Jim was also exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. It was one of the best dinner experiences I’ve had during my time in DC.

Ordered Vichyssoise soup for an appetizer and it had turned sour (spoiled cream), which didn’t seem to surprise our server. I had one spoonful then sent it back. The server (who did not visit our table at all initially for almost 15 minutes) said our sandwiches were coming right out (lobster roll and club), as there wasn’t time for another appetizer. I had no problem with that and waited for our sandwiches to be forthcoming. 20 minutes later the server said “oh, I held your order do you can order another appetizer.” You have got to be kidding me? I said politely “just bring out the sandwiches”. When they arrived, the lobster roll was so chewy I had to use a knife snd fork to cut each piece of lobster into M&M size bites to get it down. My friends club was extremely dry. So he asked for a side of Mayo and another Coke….20 min later neither came. We were now over an hour and 15 min dealing with this abc waited and waited for the server to come to our table. I finally went to the bar area where he was watching a game and I said I need my check please. He brought the check over and said proudly he had taken the Coke off the bill (that never arrived), in addition to the soup. When he saw me examining the bill, he quickly grabbed it out of my hand and “realized” the soup had not been removed. All in all it was an awful experience.

I ask this question because it was very clear that my order was subpar to the person siting at the exact same table with me. Our nationality is not the same and I would like to think that this is not the reason for the difference but what else can I think? What is your opinion? Signed Not sure I will eat here again

We do not discriminate and value all of our guests equally - unfortunately mistakes can happen even with the best of kitchens. We hope you enjoyed your experience otherwise and that you'll give us another chance to do better. Sincerely, The PJ's Team

We turned around, walked out and then made a reservation for 15 mins later on Open Table. She was very rude and not welcoming. We clearly had 2 kids with us, not providing kids menus. Food was good, front service not.

He went out of his way to ensure that my vegan needs were met. Ed the older waiter stopped by to make sure that I was comfortable. The seating manager would not rest until all my needs were met. The main manager that evening was so great and came to table with personal touch. I was treated like royalty. I only wished that I had brought several hard copies of Happiness Digest by Ellen White now online for free to pass out to these great public servants. Looking forward to returning.
