Corduroy is a beautiful space. The service was terrific and the food was very good. You'll enjoy it. The chef at the dinner we'd gone to the night before eating said "You'll love Corduroy -- they paved the way for all of the new, good restaurants in DC." And that's what it feels like: comfortable, elegant, knowledgable, dependable. Kind of... More

Went here with some friends for dinner. It was great. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted, someone takes your coat and you are escorted through a very lovely restaurant. The wait staff was just wonderful, my glass was never empty and they were ready to help with anything they could. We were there with some... More

I ate a corduroys on a Wednesday night with 3 colleagues. We ate early so were the first guests to arrive, but by the time we left 2 hours later, the place was full, so reservations would be appropriate. The general area around the restaurant is what I would call "in transition" but don't let that put you off. Once... More

As noted by others, one could easily miss this restaurant, but don't! The ambience, service and food were very good. This is exactly the sort of gem that makes TripAdvisor so valuable. So good but so unlikely to find unless given a steer by TripAdvisor members. Thank you for steering me here.

We loved the upscale qualities and food here. Very nice decor. We had the beet and goat cheese salad, soft shell crab, scallops and flourless chocolate cake.

Ate here during a recent trip to Washington D.C. Had dinner with coworkers. The food was excellent and service was exceptional. Prices were kind of expensive but it was upscale and was a decent value overall. Would recommend for anniversaries or business dinners.

Went there for a business dinner. The dining room was small, but quite enough for a conversation. The food was good, but the wine list better.

The food and service here are consistently good. The dining rooms are small but comfortable and tables are not crowded close together.
