    Food was good, restaurant was very nice, although tables for two are small & packed closely. The overall experience was spoiled by the poor service. Generally a lack of attention to detail. We felt rushed by the staff the entire meal, my plate was taken by staff with food still on it without asking if I was finished. General feeling they wanted you out ASAP to get next customers seated.

    It's easy to understand why Old Ebbitt Grill is such a popular place to dine in the D.C. area. The ambiance, food and drinks are always spectacular. Given its popularity, reservations are highly recommended.

    This place never disappoints. It’s always lively with good food and drink. Our server was outstanding, probably one of the best we’ve had yet. He was knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. The service was amazingly fast for how crowded it was. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good, everyone enjoyed theirs. I wouldn’t come here if you’re looking to be wowed by the food but it’s tasty average American fare. They do have an incredible raw bar though if that’s what you like. It’s an extremely popular place so it can be very crowded and hard to get a reservation. Overall I loved it and will certainly go again.

    It had been several years since I had visited the Old Ebbitt Grill. It was as special as I remembered. the food was amazing and our waiter was wonderful. Very attentive and made sure that my birthday dinner was wonderful. I so appreciated that. Those joining me for dinner all raved about the crab cakes and scallops we had ordered, but I have no doubt everything was just as scrumptious.
