The Pig is a great all around place. The food is always very good, especially the fried pork belly buns! The service at The Pig is very good (both table service and bar). Happy hour at The Pig is a good deal as well. Overall, a great place!

Came in on a Monday for a dinner date when I was visiting my girlfriend in town. Never been to The Pig, but when we arrived it was cozy, smaller spot in DC and not busy at all at the time (also very clean and sanitary). From the jump, we got great service and attention. Ordered and received our Meat buffet quickly. The food was delicious, and the sweet tea was fantastic, along with their homemade BBQ sauce and coleslaw. Would highly recommend and for a decent price!

Tables spaced out, you scan qrs code to view menu and then order at counter—all new due to COVID. Great service and food.

Great meal! This was everything we wanted after getting into town. Yummy food, great drinks, great service. It was during covid and we felt safe, QR code for menu, very good distance between tables, masked servers, good ventilation. Really happy with our choice t eat at The Pig.

This was our first time here and we were beyond impressed and pleased. We are definitely going back and bringing people with us.

We were the only people there, for the most part, because it was early (5:30 PM).

COVID precautions were in place and they were on top of it, sanitizing as people came and went, masks required when not eating or drinking and providing only counter service.

Highly recommend!

Great experience. Our server was thoughtfully engaged and knowledgeable. The hostess was very accommodating, we made our reservation for the wrong day and she was very polite and got us seated a little before the quote.
Food was delicious!! We opted for tapas style. Great presentation, hot, delicious, innovative with a delight of flavors, textures, meats and sauces. Do the face bacon, and the marrow, and the pork belly, and the pig feet, and the pig tails, and the sausages 😊

Had a fantastic experience at The Pig! The service was spot on and the craft cocktail drink menu was just right. We ordered the pork chop and the piccata, both of which i would order again. A definite must for a nice night out

We went for brunch and very happy we did. They have a great special which includes a nice selection of mimosas and bloody Mary’s of which I chose the Bourbon Bloody and it was the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had!! Then came the face bacon which was so different and really good! I am glad I did my 10k steps that day thou;) fun place I plan to return for a dinner soon!

The pork chop was by far the most amazing chop of my life! It was moist and tasty and perfectly cooked.

The name of the restaurant was too much to resist and I am so glad we went. I will definitely go back next time I am in WDC.

The food was great. The drinks not so much. A “jug” is 30 bucks. It easily the same as 2 glasses of water. Great place to take family, but not the greatest for a a Sunday Funday before returning to work on a Monday! I’d bring granny and Moms here:)

We had a very pleasant brunch at The Pig. Entrees were excellent, biscuits and gravy especially tasty. The starter cinnamon roll was ok, but not worth the calories. The Bloody Mary with bacon is a winner. Nice that we were not rushed. Will be back.

What a fantastic place! The atmosphere was perfect for a place focused on pork. The decor from the barn wood walls to the porky pig wall paper in the restroom set the scene for the perfect ambience. But don't be fooled by the seemingly informal look, the food is amazing. We had the face bacon burger, the pork tenderloin steak and the Shank. Tender and perfectly seasoned, matched sides and excellent presentation made each meal an experience. Our server was very knowledgeable and extremely patient and polite. Overall, a great experience!

We went to this restaurant with high expectations. When you walk in, the ambience is pretty amazing. Good music, incredible decor. And the smell, absolutely fantastic. We were seated at a table by the front of the restaurant, just in front of the main windows. Our waiter at first seem pretty great. Unfortunately, that was the end of the great experience. It took about 15 minutes to get water, it Was double that to get a Diet Coke. Our appetizers took 35 to 40 minutes to arrive. Our total experience is one hour and 45 minutes long, it took forever to get our food. They asked about food allergies, mine was to garlic. They were two things on the menu that I could eat which did not contain garlic or where the garlic can be removed during the preparation. He brought me the burger, with the sauce that contain garlic. Fortunately, I asked if that was the sauce that should’ve been removed and of course, his answer was yes. They did not charge me for my meal but to be honest, by the time it arrived I wasn’t hungry anymore. Everything simply took too long. I do highly recommend the pumpkin pie with this Moore’s. It was pretty tasty. It wasn’t very busy, I was very disappointed that it took so long to stay there and eat.

Seven gal friends went to The Pig for the first time, and seven fans came out! Superb food from the brussels sprouts starter to the on-theme bacon-garnished cannoli, and superfun cocktails. Plus, our waiter John kept things moving at just the right pace, never rushing anything, but never keeping us waiting, and handled a couple special requests in the best possible way. The scene here is lively, but not overwhelmingly noisy...perfect for catching up over such great eats. Even the host was great—when I called ahead to see if they could add a person to our reservation, he followed up with a quick email to confirm the change. Terrific experience all around...can’t wait to go back!

I am sure the place is better when it's not Restaurant week. Also I felt that the Porchetta entree could have benefited from an acid component like a drizzle of apple cider vinegar glaze/reduction.

Also the bar seats are not comfortable for long term sitting.
