Because of the local events we had trouble getting in to a restaurant for dinner one night and the JW Marriott suggested this place which was across the street and they went out of their way to accommodate us and the dinner was fantastic.

Stayed at the JW this past weekend. Dined at the Avenue Grill for breakfast and dessert. As far as the breakfast, I felt that the buffet was pretty much average. They had everything that typical hotel breakfast buffets have, nothing was unique or special (which was unfortunate for such a nice hotel). The buffet breakfast is obviously more for your... More

So we decided to give Avenue Grill a try. Much to our pleasant surprise was how outstanding... More

I are here while staying at the JW Marriott on business. I've eaten here before and the food has always been good. Tonight I had the crab bisque (wonderful) and the crab cake sandwich. The crab cake was the biggest I have ever had and was full of lump crab meat without fillers. I left off the top bun and... More

This is a hotel restaurant. The food was good, but very overpriced. Get out and experience the city instead!

On our first night in DC, we decided to try this place because of OpenTable and the reviews. We kept it simple and ordered burgers. The burgers were cooked well and the server was fantastic. We were pleasantly surprised by the service and food of the staff. I would encourage anyone to visit this place for lunch or dinner. Lastly,... More

When I explained to server that I could not eat raw onions, Meseret, my server, promptly removed the dish, brought a selection of breads during my wait and had the... More

We were here during Cherry Blossom festival about 2 hours after the parade broke on Saturday. Place was very busy and staff seemed to be having trouble staying on top of the service. Some of our items we ordered were forgotten and we had to ask to get them. Food was okay, but compared to other places we went to... More
