Amazing halibut and house special fettuccini . Was a last minute reservation and food this good shouldn’t be available as a last minute reservation but thankful We stumbled upon it. A memorable night..that included comments like “best halibut I’ve ever had”. Waitress was delightful.. attentive, playful and great fun. She was a memorable part of the night.

Tosca is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. From the time you enter the restaurant until departing you are treated s a special guest. The Maitre D' is extraordinary and the food and service beyond compare.

Went for dinner before a show at Warner Theater. Selected from the "Dine at Dusk" menu with limited selections for a 3 course app, main, dessert dinner for $45 each. Paired with an excellent bottle of wine a bit more expensive than the meal. All in all, a great value for the quality of food and experience.

The waiters were professional, but very aloof. The food and drinks were delicious, and I really appreciated that the portion sizes weren't obscenely huge. But the prices were unexpectedly high.

Superb eating in an elegant setting. Should be considered among the top-tier restaurants in DC, and certainly one of if not the best Italian restaurant. Excellent choice for a special occasion or celebration. Quiet, elegant, excellent food and attentive service. Highly recommended.

The food was phenomenal and we are very likely to go again. The service was interesting. The waiter came often but seemed to randomly leave as if he didn’t want to talk to us and seemed annoyed when we didn’t decide on something but he got better as the night went on. He was very good with presentation and knowledgeable of all items on the menus.

Tosca is a true dining experience. One of the finest
Italian restaurants in DC currently. Expect fresh seafood with creative preparations. Love the pasta
Specials and great appetizer options. The service is the best in town. In short very deserving of Michelin stars.
Would highly recommend.

I have been dining at least 4 times a year as I travel in from Houston. My group was meeting with of blessed memory Justice Scalia and recommended Tosca to us. That was abut 13 years ago I recall the pasta dishes and special pasta dishes were outstanding and delicious. Each year I would take charge of ordering for my group and typically I would select most of the pastas to share. Sometime around 4 years ago things changed the pastas were very good but not great. This week I noticed a dramatically slimed down menu offering and the pastas were good but not remarkable. I will continue to return but for the first time I will look ahead of time for a new chef owned if highly influenced venue. The consistency of the folks greeting me is very commendable and wait staff top notch.

Met friends for a long awaited get together. Fourth visit here based on previous excellent food and experience. This time, service was, as usual, outstanding. Excellent recommendations and accommodation of requests. Top notch. Big disappointment was the kitchen. Ordered the veal chop, which arrived so undercooked that it bordered on raw. First time in over 40 years of fine dining that I sent a dish back. Took an additional 20 minutes to get the new chop, during which the remainder of the table hesitated to enjoy their meals. Negatively impacted the whole experience. Our server apologized and was clearly bothered. No apology from manager, no offer of anything to accommodate.

A place like this that charges top end prices in a highly competitive market has to be better than this. Tosca has always been an automatic reservation for us when in D.C. Will probably explore other places next trip.
