You know how "nice" is a general term for mostly good and fine but not great or special? That was my impression of Corduroy. After hearing so much praise over the years, I finally went. The good parts are the serene environment - easy to...More

Ate here for dinner a rainy May evening and had a truly exceptional meal. Love the building, love the ambiance, love the food. I had scallops over grits which was an evening special, perhaps the best scallops I've ever had anywhere. The salad I had...More

Nothing wowed me. Went alone and was seated in the lonely person's /or romantic couple's table, a 2-top built into the wall. Felt a little on display. Food was not at all remarkable. For the price I would not go back. Service was nice enough.

The menu is small, but most varied, service is attentive and impeccable, and prices most reasonable for such a fine restaurant. I had LePuy lentil soup as a first course, my husband had the carpaccio: we tasted each other's choice, and all we could say...More

This was the first time we've had dinner in Corduroy after so many years. The ambiance is still lovely and the noise level low enough to have a conversation. The food is good but not spectacular; the red wine list pretty pricey. Service was good;...More

Six hungry people entered. Six supremely satisfied people left. Everyone ordered a different starter and main. The word of the evening was mmmmmmm; easily spelled, but not so easily achieved. The setting is charming. The service was polished, poised, and friendly. The wine list is...More

You probably haven't heard of Corduroy, but it is one of the best restaurants in DC. French technique with nuances of Japanese ingredients and flavor profiles, truly exceptional cuisine. For starters we had scallop tartare which came with a side of Norikos shiso salad, baby...More

Hi, I had my 12 year old daughter, absolutely no issue. If the children are younger, the place is not deathly quiet so I think as long as the kids are well behaved, it will be fun. And I am a big believer in exposing... More
