They screwed up my reservation multiple times in spite of my checking and double checking AND communication with the bar. The food was super tiny so two appetizers and 4 drinks were $175 ?! On top of the headache. So disappointed

DO NOT BOOK THE "IGLOOS." These things are at bars all over the city but the Watergate will charge you HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS for them and hide the true cost until they give you the bill. One of the most deceptive business practices I've encountered in DC. Stay away.

Our waitress, who was really kind, even apologized for the practice. Will never be going back.
