This Michelin-starred eatery features lovely presentations, a friendly and informative staff and a vibrant atmosphere (yes, can be noisy). Oddly, some of the dishes are disappointing while others are captivating. Lychee salad is purely excellent, tasting of SE Asia, tangy enough without the habanero. As...noted by bikenutva, the sea bass is superb: juicy, tasty, perfectly prepared. But our pasta with fusion cream sauce was over-sauced, tasty but cloyingly rich. Dover sole was bad: overspiced, over-fried, dry; too much effort to be fancy. Gateau St. Honore dessert was over the top: too much, too rich. In contrast the optional coconut gelato was a delight: fresh, easy on the palate. Wine list was shallow and very expensive. Gruner veltliner and base-level Burgundy were up to 4x retail price (3x Total Wine cost). Servings are 2 dishes per person. It seems petite, but it comes out to be a lot of food. The chicken itself is take-home quantity. Yes, figure on $300 for two.More

Such a joy when a restaurant with a fabulous reputation meets expectations of the diners! Customer service is second to none. Food was off-the-charts delicious. Server, Naomi, was delightful and like all staff we encountered, so hospitable. Super fun to be at counter and watch...the kitchen in action.More

So good! We are here on a road trip out east to New England and DC and this was the best place we ate! The pork and lychee salad was freaking amazin. It sure was one of the best salads I’ve ever had.

This was our first time here. The place was full with a high noise level. The good: Some of the food was spectacular: the nobu sea bass in particular and my wife’s truffle pasta. The wine list while small was very well thought out. The...greeter person was able to reseat us at a table more to our liking without any fuss. The bad: Some of the food was disappointing: the whole chicken and the chocolate soufflé. The ugly: the waiter taking our order told us that there was an additional item on the menu, the truffle pasta, but didn’t bother to tell us that there was a $35 up charge; the whole meal was way too much food. The bill came to $300 before tip including some cocktails and a few glasses of wine. The service was spotty at times. I guess you have to do everything at least once but I can’t imagine a second trip.More

Wow. We have heard about this restaurant for years as one of the best 10 in DC. Finally made it and it is all and more!! Every course is absolutely fresh and perfectly prepared. We are very experienced diners and we need to say that...this place is the best restaurant we have ever been to ! Hopefully, you will get Kendal as your knowledgeable server. She will explain each dish perfectly for you. And she is very personable. Definitely put this place on your bucket list!More

After trying for several months, I finally got a reservation for this restaurant and dined here this past Saturday with my husband. We had a menu with 10 options and for two people, we were able to choose 4 of those options. Along with those...four, you also get bread and dessert. The bread came with cheese and was delightful. Our first dish was icecream and caviar. The salty and sweetness combined together well. Our second dish was the oxtail birria which was tortillas dipped in a sauce. They were nice, though, compared to our other dishes, I found it underwhelming. My husband really liked it, though. Our third dish was a housemade tofu with some vegetables and dipped into a soy sauce. It was delicious. Our last dish was a sea bass with a potato puree. All the food was amazing. The waitress was pleasant. For a higher priced meal, they have a more laid back style and dress code. The staff was more underdressed than the patrons were. The restroom had a lot of nice signs to look at. What brought this restaurant down a star was the dessert. We ordered the soufflé and the chef messed it up twice, so we had to choose a different one. The 5 star rating went from a 5 to a 4 after a messy dessert service, but I'd definitely love to go back here and give them a try again especially since they change their menu frequently. Aaron Silverman is certainly in the right business.More

Wonderful tasting menu over Valentine’s Day weekend with the luxury beverage tasting. All dishes were delicious and the wine pairing was perfect. The lychee salad is a tried and true staple.

We were excited to finally make it to Rose’s to celebrate a big birthday. Having heard much of its reputation, we were surprised by the far from luxurious patio setting. The Covid precautions were impressive; that was reassuring. The pris fixe menu had a first...listing and a champagne with a price in parentheses. Our server asked if we’d like the appetizer and we agreed. He asked if we wanted champagne. After hearing that it “comes with the appetizer”, we asked for it. The tiny scoop of caviar was so small, my wife asked if this was for both of us. It was. Next, half way through the touted lychee salad, my wife asked if I could taste the lychee, I realized I could not. We queried a server. Horrified, he brought two small bowls of canned lychees. Despite advance notice of it being a big birthday, this was forgotten by Rose’s. Later that night, I got my bill online. The appetizer + tax + tip added about $60. Perhaps partly our misunderstanding, but the deal was not presented clearly. I’ve twice contacted Rose’s about the above. No response.This is not a restaurant worth raving about.More

Rose’s summer menu is absolutely delicious. Service is perfect. Parking easy across the street with ParkMobile app. Consider skipping wine and going for the divine summer drinks including something called a Banana Slushy. Don’t forget your mask. Temps taken on arrival.

My daughter wanted to go here for her birthday dinner. She said we had to wait in line outside by 4pm to talk to the hostess who comes out at 5pm and will then give you a time as a reservation. Lucky for us, we...were not too far back in line and she asked if we wanted to stay and eat then (at 5pm) Yes! we were happy. We went to our table upstairs. Everything is very charming. We decided to do the Chef's Special for $89/each. All three in our party had to do it. It was a wise choice. I believe there were about 9 courses. You share the dishes. Since I am gluten free I was reluctant to try the special, but our server was very helpful and brought out a few alternatives. Most of the dishes I could eat, but the alternatives were also amazing. Have to say the Lychee salad was a favorite of us all. Each and every dish offered such a unique mix of flavors . I will be spoiled forever. The wine was a bit expensive for us old suburbanites from Pennsylvania, but to be expected in a large city. We were there for nearly 3 hours. Normally, my husband would have been bouncing off the walls with that length of time, but he thoroughly enjoyed himself. Even a trip to the bathroom was a delight. So cute.More

I am probably too late, but I recently visited and vegan seemed rather challenging for them to accommodate. Vegetarian would be no problem! If you give them advance notice, maybe they could do vegan.

We got a reservation since we had six people. I think they now take reservations if you have less. May only be same day though, but I would call to get details.
