As a group of 14 we dined here and had a nice time. I was intrigued about the history of the place and it was once an old saloon. It was busy and they managed to accommodate us, albeit at different tables. We had a variety of meals and they were all excellent. The only thing was that the waiter... More

Late lunch after doing tours. We love Oysters on half shell but rarely get them it was half price so tried two from each region they offered that day. Also had a great salad - fennel and fresh oranges and a lemon vingarette

Simply love this restaurant. The staff is really attentive and the food is unique and tasty. It's a little pricy to eat here so be aware. 2 people will easily spend over $100. If you are visiting D.C., this should be on your list.

My family has continued a tradition of going to Ebbitt's at Christmas time each year. We make reservations for a late afternoon lunch, then visit the National Christmas Tree site nearby. Ebbitt's has a uniquely festive atmosphere with a diverse menu. Portions are more than adequate and service is always pleasant. Never disappoints!
