I stopped by this new chic restaurant for dinner because of Tom Sietsema's Washington Post review. I must say I was pleasantly surprised from the door with the warmth of the hosts. They were very inviting and welcoming. We were led to the "Club Room" and the decor was amazing; very comfy feel. My husband and I ordered drinks; Prelude to a Kiss and the best Bulleit Rye manhattan I've ever tasted! Lemar, our bartender, made AWESOME drinks. He was very entertaining and professional. Jose, our server, followed up with impeccable service and guided us through the menu with ease. We started with the Escargot and the Crab Deviled Eggs. Both delicious! (I need the recipe!!) For my husband's main course, He ordered the Bourguigon. I ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu because it was all the rave in the Post. BOTH PHENOMENAL! Wonderful flavors! For dessert, we had the Chocolate Cake and the Creme Brulee. They were both amazing. We will definitely be back. Such a lovely experience. Great job!
Don't sleep on this place! The food here is outstanding!
Service on point! Very clean! Decor on point! This is the
perfect date and chill spot! We will definitely return!!
Stop wasting your time going to brunch on U St or
anywhere else! This is it!!! Come here and get your
brunch on!! The lobster Mac and cheese is everything!
Lemon pepper wings Omg! Shrimp and grits! Listen you can’t go wrong here!!!
Great food! We went to Velvet & Rye, but have been to Wood-fire before too (also great food, a little louder than velvet, more family atmosphere). $134 for 2 entrees, 4 (alcoholic) drinks, and one appetizer (not bad, worth the price). I got the penne pasta, AMAZING. My date for lamb chops, he was skeptical ordering them, but they ended up being really good. Definitely recommend for a little date night.
