“Fabulous! Sublime! Perfection!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We ate here with our 3 young children age 2, 6 and 7 in the early evening at 6pm. The restaurant is small and intimate with outstanding service. I am a classically trained chef and I could not flaw the food....not even the seasoning!

Unum offers a small seasonal Italian menu cooked with passion and to perfection. We all loved our meal! Our toddler had the truffle infused home-made Mac&cheese and loved it! The dessert was also excellent! The winelist was small but excellent and our charming waiter was very knowledgable.

We thought our meal was very affordable and one of the nicest meals we have ever eaten on our travels of the USA (and certainly far better than most we have eaten in Italy) and certainly the best meal we had on our 3 week trip exploring NYC and DC.

Thank you Unum for a sublime meal and service that was in our opinion...perfection!!

“Hidden secret in Georgetown, Washington DC”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

In an idyllic place,downtown Washington DC you'll find the great Belgian restaurant from master chief Bard Vandaele. Good balanced menus, à la carte food and good wines makes it the place-to-be today. It's a charming place with an excellent service.

We were 8 to a casual business dinner. Menu is excellent, good wine and very good service. Good atmosphere. Crab cakes were excellent. Reasonable price given the location.

“Nice Touches ”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

We visited the restaurant on Father's Day and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful decor. The food varied from delicious, the French fries, the pasta with short ribs, to an eggplant appetizer that was only fair. The menu was limited which meant each selection should be outstanding. The owner stop by our table and was very gracious. The service however was fair. Overall very good dining experience we hope the restaurant makes it.

“Excellent flavours and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

My meal was excellent. Top class food preparation. The portions are quite small perhaps, but I was happy with that and would rather have top quality cooking like this in small doses than otherwise. Service was friendly, engaging and not pushy - even for my European expectations.
