  • Neighbourhood gem

Since our early days as a tea room, we’ve been a respite for locals and visitors alike, offering a haven for conversation and memorable cuisine. The tradition continues as our culinary team has curated an inventive and elevated menu through New American cuisine while paying homage to the beloved dishes that have been served at the Tabard Inn for years.

Executive Chef Matthew Zafrir came to the Tabard in 2023, bringing with him experience from various fine dining restaurants around D.C. such as minibar by José Andrés, Cranes, Revelers Hour, as well as Woodberry Kitchen in Baltimore, MD. He also shares the Tabard's longstanding commitment to sourcing ingredients locally.

Join us for a meal on our covered patio or one of our intimate dining rooms. Or enjoy drinks and light fare in our historic fireplace lounge, where you can enjoy our creative cocktails! A DC institution since 1922, we look forward to offering our guests all the comforts of a home away from home.

    The food was amazing. The combinations of taste and texture were phenomenal. Compliments to the Chef Sandra Kwong. The atmosphere was cosy and romantic. The live jazz music just made it even better.

    The wine was delicious, food portion was yummy, but lacking for the price, preferred a whole steak instead I’ve been served sliced steak, with some greens, but all in out 4 stars for ambience and drinks

    This is such a gem. Every time I bring business associates here for dinner, they are so very pleasantly surprised, immediately love the place and start taking pictures to come back with their significant other. This occasion didn’t fail to accomplish the same tradition… haha Service is excellent, food is exceptional, drinks are great. The ambiance and the space are the best part! Thanks for another memorable night.

    While the food is really excellent — pan seared scallops - it is the service from servers like Gigi that earn the accolades. She is a superb representative — attentive but not intrusive. Well done!
