I like to dine in hotel restaurants when I know the food is wonderful and the atmosphere is pleasant. The food is American continental, freshly prepared and very nicely presented. The convenience is great, makes it so easy to dine in a leisurely tempo and...More

Now it's just a cafeteria for the two start hotel it occupies. Food has sunk to the level of the hotel. Of course the prices have not sunk. Welcome to DC. Like the corrupt federal government, most DC restaurants deliver mediocrity at a high price.

This is a modern decor restaurant nested in the lobby of a hotel. Food is nice and unpretentious and service is attentive. I liked my steak and frites and my wife is a lover of mussels and frites and was pretty happy about it.

We had a delicious dinner with great service and fun drinks (try the bee's knees). Have not had breakfast there, though it was crowded for that meal when we were staying there. Enjoy!

Small, cozy place tucked inside the River Inn. There is a small bar and fireplace that makes the place warm & inviting. We sat at a small table by the window with a nice view of 25th Street. The menu isn't extensive with prices typical...More

The ambiance at Dish lends itself to quiet and relaxing conversation: lighting is subdued yet ample, the fireplace is warm and glowing, and the servers are attentive without being intrusive. The butternut squash soup is reason enough to visit, and was absolutely delicious on a...More
