I enjoy high tea, and it's hard to find a good one in the DC area. The Jefferson has an excellent High Tea, with outstanding service and wonderful tea/treats. If you are staying at the hotel or from the area looking to do a tea service - this is your place.

Dining for breakfast at the Greenhouse reminds me of having brunch at Tavern on the Green or tea at The Plaza Hotel in New York. Both are icons in the big apple and I have now found a new favorite that should be in the icon category! The breakfast was incredible, the ambiance is a combination of french, traditional with a modern edge. The staff could not be kinder and more helpful. I highly recommend the Greenhouse for a special occasion or for no reason at all!

This place is just about perfect. A colleague suggested it for an early morning business breakfast. We arrived early and let the staff know that we'd need a place where we could eat and talk privately. They were VERY accomodating. The menu is great and everything was prepared to near perfection. We will definitely be back.

Good service,quiet surroundings.
Food was OK but the crab cakes were small and dry.

On a girls weekend with my young daughter, and she wanted to have tea. The Greenhouse is beautiful, great atmosphere, and the wait staff was very nice and attentive. The prices, however, are outrageous. My daughter is 7, and she was $39 for afternoon tea, and she barely ate anything. She didnt like the sandwiches offered, and they did not offer to do anything else for her. I had tea, and a glass of champagne, and I was $55! It was over $100 for 2 people!! The sandwiches, scones, etc we all decent, but nothing memorable. I've had better at Ritz Carlton, or the Drake in Chicago. It was beautiful to sit there, but for the price I would not go back.
