All four meals were excellent. Our first visit.
Consistently delicious. Highly recommend.
Looks like things have gone downhill a bit since Edelle left. Still good, but nitice the difference.
Unfortunately, table next to us obnoxiously loud with screeches, cackling laughter and just very loud. With music we couldn’t hear ourselves talk so lunch not enjoyable. Food good.
Service was a bit slow.
Ted's Bulletin is an institution, particularly the Eastern Market / Capitol Hill location. Always straightforward, tasty fare that satisfies my itch for some good old homecooking when away from home.
We had heard amazing things about Ted’s Bulletin so we had made a reservation two weeks in advance for brunch on a Sunday. We arrived on time and was told that it would be an additional 10-15 minute wait as they were waiting on some tables to leave. Our wait ended up being 40 minutes in total. In addition to the wait, the drink that was brought to me was not the one I ordered. They offered to bring another drink but we had finished our meal at this point.
All in all, disappointed and will not be returning.
Our second time here and the food is incredible! The wait staff is pleasant and our server was wonderful.
I took my parents out for lunch to celebrate them as new great grandparents 🥂!! Thomas was our host and server! He has impeccable service and taste in knowing how to suggest/select different cuisines and cocktails. Thomas was amazing 👏. Every dish we ordered was delightful 😋.
This is the perfect way to start your day or week! I always feel welcomed as soon as I enter the restaurant. The staff always says good morning. My server, Karen, was excellent! She took my drink and food order and everything came out exactly as ordered. I was offered refills on my iced tea without having to ask first.
Anita, the general manager, stopped by all the tables to check on the guests and welcome them. Trey, a new manager in training was friendly and a good host.
I always have a great day when I start it with breakfast at Ted’s!
The food was good and ambience and server great. I did not like our entrees arriving shortly after our salads. Also, the salad dressings, while good, were not as ordered. Limited white wine selection- not may were chilled. Our server recommended a white blend was was very good.
They need to draw the music down a bit but otherwise- really nicely done!
This was a fun find! Such a classic east coast breakfast place. The staff was warm and friendly and the manager was exceptional. She gave us the history of the restaurant and how their specialty is homemade pop-tarts. Fantastic pastry with delicious filling. We ordered traditional breakfast which was outstanding. Took our pop-tarts for desert to go! Gotta go - wonderful.
No movies. Management said it wasn’t working. It looks like a prop. Strange odor in restaurant. Not a clean restaurant as seen in the picture. Lots of food, but doesn’t taste good. Best were their French Fries and coleslaw . Waitress was very nice and understanding of our disappointment. She did her best to make our time there pleasant. It wasn’t crowded. Some people appeared to be enjoying their food.
Very good food and a reasonable price. Excellent service.
Always great good and service
Very cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Great food. We ended up having breakfast for dinner and the french toast was fantastic. Also had a cold brew martini with it, and it was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We ate outside later in the evening. Our server was so kind. Fun night!
Very quiet Monday evening at Ted's... which I'm not used to, but service was great and the burgers and shakes top notch!
Always enjoy going to Ted's - excellent food, tasty milkshakes, nice people. Not cheap but worth it.
We were traveling with our four kids ages 18, 17, , 13, 10. A few blocks from the metro. The neighborhood seems to be up-and-coming with lots of diversity and a nice mix of local with a few (but not too many) chains. Our waiter Thomas was the star of the show—a gentleman who served our family like we were at his home, as did all the whole staff, honestly. Food was too notch. Fish and chips. Home style meatloaf. Omelette. Pancakes. Mac n cheese. Hot chicken. All washed down with milkshakes. I wish we had room for their homemade pop tarts but we rolled out fat and happy!
Great staff and service. The food is mediocre and they didn't have what I came to the restaurant for - Crabcakes. The restaurant was quiet, should have some soft sounds playing.
The service was excellent!!! We had a large party and they were very accommodating. Will visit again soon.
Noise level was high but it’s the location. The service was sub par and the food was just okay
Great food and atmosphere. Service was good. Would definitely go back again with my family.
Shirette was a wonderful server. She was welcoming and was attentive at just the right level.
The reason the food score was 4 star was the Huevos Rancheros comes out luke warm. The flavor is excellent but even the fried eggs weren’t hot. I’ve tried this multiple times with the same result.
Ambiance was great. Everyone is very welcoming.
It is a great way to start my day!
Always enjoy Ted’s
This was a GREAT find! Variety of dietary restrictions in the family makes finding a place a bit of work and this place met all of them. Great food, milkshakes, and worth the price.
The food was great and our server was amazing! We will be back each time we visit DC.
I ordered a garden omelet which I liked. The other three people who I came with also liked their meals. I wasn’t a fan of the loud music. I prefer restaurants with no music because it is much easier to hear each other talk. There was also a lot of noise from people talking in the restaurant. The waitress was very nice and we had brunch there on a Saturday. The whole meal took less than an hour.
My server Barista Nancy did an excellent job as my server. She was attentive at just the right level. The restaurant was packed so the noise was a little louder. Great place to start your day. The steak breakfast burrito is excellent!
This was my second visit to this restaurant, and it was enjoyable by all measures.
Portions are huge, service was great, cool atmosphere. Definitely worth a try!
Very cool place. Very friendly staff. Food was great.
As per usual the food was delicious and the wait staff was helpful, speedy, and friendly. Love those tots!!!
Great time and great food as always! I love this location over the other DC locations.
We ordered the Heuvos Rancheros and the Chicken & Biscuits. Both were very good. Portion sizes were a little bigger than expected. We both also go their poptarts: one strawberry and one brown cinnamon sugar. Very, very sweet, but good! Lastly, there's plenty of parking and we didn't have to wander around trying to find somewhere. We plan to come here again!
The staff despite being short on servers was incredible. Because of them being short staffed, the restaurant wasn't outstanding as it has been in the past,but that did not affect the quality of food we received!
The avocado toast and poached eggs was the perfect way to start the day. The service from Yecenia was excellent. She checked back to make sure my food came out right. The entire team from Anita to Gustavo and all of the host and serving staff always make you feel welcome! Great place for breakfast!
