Happy, friendly staff and a great atmosphere as long as you go for a drink and bar snacks. I don't really think of it as a place to go for dinner. They have loads of events so it pays to keep an eye on the calendar. It's a fun and friendly bar.

Vendetta is a place I wanted to like: friendly staff trying hard. It's popular but unfortunately for brunch the food was not good. Waffle was hard and lukewarm at best, brisket in eggs and brisket was skimpy and not very tasty and also lukewarm. Eggs were good. Breakfast potatoes OK but only OK. Too bad.

Lots of craft beer choices, zucchini fries and chicken wings were just hearty enough to hold us until dinner! This had a good dive bar vibe.

This was a really cool and kind of unique bar. It's a very comfortable atmosphere with really friendly staff. If you're into bocce ball, they have a court in the middle of the bar. They have a decent beer and liquor selection at reasonable prices. The food menu is not very extensive but what it lacks in diversity it makes... More

Went to Vendetta on a weekend night hoping to enjoy a bocce match with the advertised glow in the dark balls and found that was false advertising. There were two bartenders and one seemed put out to be working, maybe had some personal problems which was interfering with her night. The other server made up for her though and was... More

So we had tickets to a play at the nearby theater and decided to stop in for a taste. Boy were we surprised. This was no small bar food spot. The food combinations and menu items offered some real excitement. You can tell the chef is serious about his craft. I mean even the home maid catchup was good! I... More

So were in there on a rainy afternoon at around 4pm and place was slow, with only a few bocce players in. Cool decor and very cozy. But the waitress told us since it was not yet dinner time, they only served the bar menu - a very limited selection. We tried to make the best of it and make... More

Six of us went for drinks and dinner on Sunday. Some of the menu items were no longer available because they ran out. The waiter did not start with "sorry but the following items aren't available" but waited until we ordered an item to say it was not available. Even after we ordered and 10 minutes later he came back... More

Met a friend for dinner at this wonderful gem on H Street. They have a great happy hour including wine, beer and small plates. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. We shared the carbonara which was delicious. I then had the chicken parmigiana and my friend enjoyed the steak. An aside was that a large group arrived asking for a... More
