Best restaurant we have been to in DC yet. The food was fantastic. We had never tried bone marrow before, but are so glad we did-- absolutely delicious! And our waitress, Adrienne, could not have done a better job. We will definitely be back.

We had an unbelievable dinner tonight at the Blue Duck Tavern. We had the smoked trout to start followed by the fabulous cauliflower salad. We topped that off with the whole fish which was magnificent. The only thing that was better than this wonderful meal was the service and attention provided by Adrienne who could not have been more attentive... More

We ate at the Blue Duck tavern last month for a wonderful birthday dinner. Right from the start...it was nothing but a delightful evening with a few surprises along the way! Started in the bar for a drink....the bar tender created a wonderful concoction from hand pressed pomegranate juice. He explained the spicy/sweet concoction and to my surprise...it was delightful!...

The first thing I notice about this restaurant was the decor. Instantly welcoming and warm. Typical amazing, friendly, casual and welcoming Hyatt service. This hotel chain really gets service and treating their employees right. It shows at every Hyatt property I visit. Adrienne was no exception to this whatsoever. Our server was incredible. Friendly, warm and everything else that take... More

My relatives and I are from D.C. and NYC, and recently dined at Blue Duck for dinner to see if it was up to the one star awarded to the restaurant by the Michelin Guide. While I would love to tell you the restaurant was worthy of the accolade, unfortunately the meal fell short. While our server was very pleasant... More

I was really excited to eat here because so many people had said such great things. And, honestly, I'm completely willing to admit that my experience may have been a bit of a fluke. But I found it a little underwhelming. I was there for brunch and I had the brussel sprouts with a side of bacon and a bagel... More

This very popular restaurant looks nice, but not extraordinary. In fact, we commented that in appearance it reminded us of a "typical" nice hotel restaurant. Appearances can be deceiving! We are in DC for a quick visit with our adult children, and our daughter made dinner reservations for five of us. Wow! The celery soup, poached pear salad, and cauliflower... More

All the dishes here were impressive. Try their oysters, brussels sprouts, duck, and grilled mushrooms.

Description
Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.
