The 2 stars is for the service. We were seated at 7pm and a server didn’t come back to greet us or get drinks orders until 8pm. 8pm! I don’t know if there was some confusion on who was serving our table but someone from the main room came over and asked if we were okay since he noticed we were sitting for awhile. He grabbed the manager and then another server - he was very nice about it. They did make up for it by giving us giving us free appetizers, which we appreciated and over all the food was delicious!

We were visiting DC for National Junior volleyball tournament. The restaurant was busy, yet the noise level was fine for individual conversations. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and make recommendations without being overbearing. Our appetizers were very good, we shared mozzarella balls and burrito with lobster. Entrees were excellent, we had 2 pasta dishes (tortellini and short ribs) and chicken - everything was excellent. House wine was good and reasonably priced.

One of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. The food is expensive but it was first class. The chicken Parmesan was amazing. We will certainly visit again when we are in DC.

Amazing service. First time dining there, but had been there for happy hour many times before. Food was amazing and came out very quickly. Our server Sean was very funny and was very convincing with the specials and we ended up getting 2 of them which were phenomenal. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy a fine dining experience. Will definitely be back soon.

Everything was amazing. The only area that I would not give 5 stars is the noise level. It was really hard to talk but we were there due the busiest time of the evening so ever table was taken.

Overall so good and would recommend to anyone who is in DC.

This place is great for a date night, families or out with your girls. Great food! My favorite is the meatball appetizer, the truffle garlic bread and the grilled giant prawns. I love to sit in their huge bar area because of the ambiance and the decor.

I love RPM this was my second time visiting and another great experience! I went with my girls for our Galentines Day and we loved it. Our server was great he made sure to check on us but wasn’t over bearing. The food was delicious I had the lobster ravioli. I highly recommend that dish. The drinks were great. I love the ambiance there! A lot of restaurants are super stuffy but not there! It’s great for a crowd that’s about 25-40 which is great! Overall I had an amazing time and I will be back!

The atmosphere was really nice and the vibe , but my friends and I ordered a few of the pastas and the oysters for the appetizer. The pastas weren’t really different from any other pastas we’ve had before. The oysters were amazing ! The drinks were also really good!

An enjoyable, well-served meal. Food had some really good highs, eg Amalfi King Crab Bruschetta and the Eggplant Parm, but the Zucchini Fritti was much too much fritte and too little zucchini, and we had to hunt pretty hard to find the salami in the Giuliana's Italian Salad. As always, the service was terrific and the atmosphere vibrant.
