Appealing to both visitors and locals, AMITY & COMMERCE is a unique American Bistro and Bar with international flair. Curated signature dishes rotate daily to complement the delicious modern mainstays, which form the backbone of a menu that feels both bold and familiar.

Located just a stone’s throw from the District’s emerging Southwest Waterfront and the iconic Jefferson Memorial, AMITY & COMMERCE features soaring ceilings and a relaxed, yet lively atmosphere. Diners may choose to sit at the 20’ wood-topped COMMERCE bar, a comfortable table in the AMITY dining room, or at one of our communal tables.

Amity & Commerce’s contemporary menu is best enjoyed paired with a hand-crafted cocktail, local brew or wine chosen from our highly curated list.

    Excellent location for lunch: easy parking and quite close to many of the mall museums. Menu offers both light and more substantial fare. Delicious quiche.Staff are attentive and courteous.

    I went for my best friend's birthday and wanted somewhere with good ambiance. The restaurant itself is quite impressive looking, nice lighting, and a fire spectacle by the bar. My main issue is the quality of food for the price. I ordered the sea scallops ($39) and my friend ordered the salmon ($32). The portion of fish was quite small and a few of my scallops were gritty. We ended up ordering $8 fries to help fill us up. For the price, I expected more. I ordered a specialty drink ($25) which was a bourbon wood old fashioned and comes served in a smoking cage. While it was an ok photo op, I can't say it was worth the money. They just need to come down on the prices.

    The service provided by James, our server, was extraordinary and we would go back just because of him. Our appetizers (lobster bisque and duck liver parfait) were delicious and the drinks were good. Service was prompt but our main courses were disappointing. My husband’s steak was “horrendous,” dry, chewy, flavorless and over cooked. My burger was fine but nothing extraordinary. The truffle fries were tasty. The restaurant was wonderful about crediting us back the cost of the steak but we will not be ordering either of those entrees again.

    I am a international traveler and a United States citizen and resident. This restaurant and meal was recommended while we stayed at hotel for valentines weekend 2020. The venue while nice did not equate to good food. The 4 course meal was tasteless except for the filet mignon. The setting was ok but the meal was very overpriced at $230.00 for two persons including one complimentary “sparking wine”. There are many other restaurants in DC who serve better tasting food for much better prices. I would sacrifice the ambiance of the restaurant for better tasting cuisine and certainly a modest 50% decrease in price. Food served needed to be more flavored less impressive on dishes we cannot pronounce and certainly less expensive

    The vibe in the new space is good- clean, open. I ordered the Steak Frites and my colleague ordered the Mushroom Risotto. For food, I would say that the plate was attractive but the steak tasted like charcoal on the outside and was under seasoned. The risotto was good as expected. Our server was missing for very long periods of time which became annoying when we needed a condiment, a refill, or the check. We did have others jump in when they saw us looking around. Overall, I think the place has promise and I would try again!

    Decided to try somewhere new during Restaurant Week for dinner with friends. Food here is excellent. Service is polite and attentive but not fussy. Pricing is extremely moderate and well balanced.
