Drinks were fairly price, heaters and music were a plus. The place was bumping with people and there was still room for us to catch a seat at the railing to watch the sunset over the white house. memorable!

OMG, the pancakes were to die for. We also had the waffle balls which were delicious. My husband had been there previously for pierogi night and he brought me back to try the food. The service was a bit slow, but the place was nicely...More

Very disappointed in the service and portion size in relation to the cost. On one plate, the latkes were over-cooked, Other dishes could have used a side of fruit or something else to justify the $15 or $16 cost. While we had a reservation, it...More

I've been here a couple times because it is a very cute, trendy restaurant. Restaurants serving northern European food aren't very common in DC, but this place knows how to do it (I'd say). That being said the food is filling, but they have great...More

Domku was different than I was expecting. It had been on my "to try" list for a while. It was off the beaten path for us, in Petworth. I expected white, contemporary, sleek decor - but it was homey and casual, with brick walls and...More
