“Worst Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Celebrating my nieces birthday-party of 7-the only positive thing that can be said is it was a nice building physically-from start to finish this was the worst dining experience of my 68 years-only in a metro area such as the District of Columbia could an establishment of this survive!! The only waiter was unbelieveably incomptent! Could not even keep the water glasses filled betwenn trying to impress us all with his lack of knowledge of-well everything related to the dining experience we were to endure--the menues were put together wrong but the least of our concerns-had to ask for a beverage menue and then again for another for a party of 7!! He convinced us to try the Chef's Choice at $49/per for seven!! It was as bad as you can imagine--I was too embarassed to even address the situation and my brother-in-law was footing the bill-my nieces father--and to cap it all off after serving sub par courses in total the desert was nothing more than cinnamon sticks from Taco Bell-the only item outstanding was the bill-over $700 including tip!!!!!!!! Do not-I repeat-DO NOT frequent this establishment!!!!! As I said I am not an expert on dining experiences but neither am I a fool without recognizing those who have more money than sense!!!

“Elegant Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

The menu has a large selection of traditional Italian dishes, steaks, and tapas. We enjoyed the Chef Giovanni Carlo's stuffed zucchini blossom and soft shell crab. The desserts were scrumptious. Panache is elegantly decorated and has comfortable seating. They have an extensive cocktail selection. Panache is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.

“Not recommending”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

We went here for a dinner with a client. Started off with the waitress screwing up the cork on the bottle of wine, not once but twice. Then service was very slow, then the food came and it was bland and not very good.

Then came desert, a large menu and comedy of errors by the waitress. They didn't have half of the deserts on the menu coming back and forth.

When deciding to order a scotch the same issue, all 6 on the menu, nope. So settled for something else.

Embarrassing....

“You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

The food and service in this restaurant was phenomenal! The restaurant is discretely located in an office building and can be easy to miss at night.

The price is a little higher than what the usual chain restaurant have to offer, but the quality of the food and the service is also beyond what you would find at the normal "chains."

This is definitely a restaurant I will be returning coming back to.

Enjoy!
