This place has been around for years, and I’m not sure how. The bar is very small, and the whole place feels kind of like the place you’d take your secret loved when you don’t want to be seen. That being said, I’ve come back again and again when friends need a quiet place to grab a drink and a few bites.

Our group of 40 liked this restaurant. A prepared menu in advance and a cash bar worked out well. Even a coat check for this private dining experience. It was about 1 mile walk back to the Hyatt from the restaurant so not too far away from where we were staying. The salmon appetizer and the rock fish were both very good.

Menu: Pre-theater menu offers choices in each category: Butternut squash soap, roasted beet salad (generous, good flavor combinations), dining with four and each had a a different main: pork tenderloin moist, filet with mushroom risotto (high quality with small portion), rock fish, rutabaga and sweet potato gratin; dessert choices were chocolate mousse and cheesecake. Selected a pinot gris, but recommend choosing wine pairing which may be more interesting.
Server: Professional and helpful. Staff is welcoming.
Location: Convenient central location, even for a short drive to Kennedy Center. Easily found on-street pay parking ~5:30 pm on Friday (no sporting event). By 6:45 restaurant seemed full.

Boxing Day! I had the wild boar: superb. My wife is vegan and raves about the choices and her choice. What a great combination. Then add great service, a very cool decor and you have a unique experience in Penn Quarter, DC.

If you try it you will go back.

Cedar provided us with a private room - not requested but greatly enjoyed. There is a vegetarian in our family who appreciated the full vegetarian menu and some serious neat eaters who loved the steak. The butter lobster and crab cakes suited others as well. All in all, Cedar met our varied tastes. Service was pleasant and helpful. When my family comes back to DC during Christmas vacation we will certainly return. Priced are fair
