Absence de service. Absence de couverts pour manger. Plats fades servis tièdes. Le filet mignon ressemble à du rosbif. Belle vue de Washington en soirée.

The staff was very nice. Did not rush us to order. Very relaxing for my wife's 50th birthday. Unfortunately, I ordered the New york strip medium but it was well done. They took it back and unfortunately the 2nd was medium but not hot enough to melt the cold butter on top and no seasoning. So I had to take it home and doctor it on my own grill. Smh. Great place. Just don't order the expensive steak.

I would say the food is not as good as the view. We went on an anniversary dinner and it took 2 hours to finish a normal 2 course meal. Wait staff barely followed up and it took forever to get the check.

Great dinner but was looking forward to the tomahawk steak unfortunately they did not have them the evening I was there, I come once a year and was looking forward to that steak. Filet was still extremely flavorful and cooked right just not what I was looking forward too

I would recommend this place only for the view. Go there, get a bottle of wine and enjoy the view. The rest is not worth it.
The reservation was confirmed with the note that it will be held for 10 min. We arrived 7 minutes late and were informed that it’s canceled due to the lateness. OK, the manager reinstated it and seated us. We asked if we could be next to the window. He said, that since we reserved the table on the same day, he can’t do it. We spend about 2 hours there and MORE than half of the tables by the windows remained empty. I wonder if they were for “an additional cost”?

Food was horrible you have to pay for window seats. The price for the food was ridiculous for the food to be that terrible

Everything was almost perfect to our satisfaction. One point needs to be clarified. The bill was somewhat confusing and created the impression that THE TIP was included, although a "gratuity" paragraph was available too. It would be practical if the patrons are somehow advised (for all practical purposes maybe in advance - when they do the reservation) about "the system" in a timely fashion without finding it out through itemization and elimination. This is just a suggestion.

We incurred another type of billing situation with a new electronic portable pad at a different place ("Texas of Brazil"), where the patron has to indicate (by manipulating physically the device in semi-darkness under the eye of the waiter breeding in my neck) the tip through a menu of options. The way the options were lined up was so confusing that it resulted - for several people including our party - in a double billing and follow-up time consuming unpleasant steps to resolve it.

This was not the first time we dine happily in Sky Dome and bring each time friends from out of town, out of State or from Europe. We will be definitely back.

They have a beautiful view but their service and limited menu makes it not worth it.

Pros: Unique experience in DC. Very friendly staff, excellent views of the city. Tasty food. Cons: Kitchen is elsewhere in the hotel. Servers have to navigate hallways and two separate elevators to deliver your food. Our food, while tasty and professionally prepared, was less than luke warm when it arrived due to the time it took. Neutral: Portion size is typical for a 5 star restaurant - small portion with a larger price attached. But very tasty. I would still recommend.

The view was outstanding. The moving platform gave me a bit of motion sickness so if you go I recommend either taking motion sickness medication or just being aware that's a risk.

The service was great. Very friendly staff. The food was a bit disappointing. There are very limited options and not a lot of vegan/vegetarian options. The price was more than the foods quality. With a price tag of $42 for a 14oz New York Strip Steak you'd expect more than what you'd get at Outback Steak House. The flavors we're good but it wasn't somewhere I'd go back again.

We enjoyed our visit for the experience and the view.

Great for spectacular views of the city. A lot smaller than I expected and it was tricky finding how to get up there. Menu was small and the food was average, not exactly worth the price, but I guess they can charge more because of the scenery? Also, the service was very slow. It took 15 minutes after asking for the check to actually get it. Nice waiter but it just took a long time to get what was asked for.
