Was not impressed with my meal at all. The others in our party stated the same. Expected a little better from a Hilton property. The waiter was not engaged and appeared to not be focused on his job. Very impersonal interaction. The food was barely average - really only filling. I'll not return and would recommend that you not waste... More

Arrived on a Sunday at 5pm. Only people at the restaurant (located inside Embassy Suites hotel). Left about 6:15 and still the only people in the restaurant. Only chose to go there due to location and time constraints for the evening. Prices were reasonable for DC. Regardless, too many other good options to choose from. Probably better to turn this...

Enjoyed a great meal with good food and great service. Very good Italian food and very easy to get to within the Embassy Suites.

The food was ok, the presentation of the plates was poor, the server screaming all the time.... I don't think I'll return

We ate here recently - we had a pizza and were not really impressed. It seemed undercooked and doughy. I think the mushrooms were canned. With some many other dining options in this area, I wouldn't eat here unless we were tired and couldn't leave the hotel. (The restaurant is attached to the Embassy Suites.)

A great place to eat if you are staying at the Embassy Suites and too tired to walk around after a long trip to Washington. Pasta is excellent as is the pizza. They often have soecials which generally are very good. Service can be spotty BUT if you want you can order and take your meal up to your room.

This restaurant is in the same building as the Embassy Suites. In all my years of staying at the hotel, the restaurant has never disappointed. The pasta, pizza, fish, salads, and soups have all been good. There is a great selection of wine and liquor from the bar as well. The staff is friendly and service is good. Many times... More

We walked to this restaurant from One Washington Circle Hotel, where we were staying. It is located in the Embassy Suites Hotel. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and the wait staff/servers are great. I was disappointed with the selection on the menu - had my heart set on canneloni, but there was none to be found. Had chicken parmigiana,... More

Trattoria Nicola's is in the lobby of the Embassy Suites Hotel on 22nd St. Enjoyed outstanding pizza and salads a few times during the nightly reception at Embassy Suites. Helped us to grab a quick bites on nights we had an evening engagement to make. The pizza reminded me of Dom Demarco's , here in Las Vegas, really good. Service... More
