Outstanding Service - Food Quality was Great - Value...not so much

The service made this a 4 rating. Otherwise, based upon quality and value; it would be rated a 3. My family and I stayed at the JW and were looking for a quality meal after traveling. There was no wait involved and we were seated immediately. Our server (Linscom) was fantastic, attentive, and... read more

We were looking for a quick bite after a Sunday night show and were staying in the hotel so we decide to give this one a try. The service was excellent and the club sandwich and Caesar salad were very good. A nice bread selection was offered as well. This was a step up from the usual hotel restaurant fare.

We reserved a table here weeks in advance through Opentable for the 4th of July. Just hours before our dining time, the restaurant cancelled our booking. They made no effort to inform us of this. We only discovered this when we went on to Opentable to confirm the booking and saw it had disappeared that morning. We called the restaurant,... More

My family is staying at JW for a trip and my son has life-threatening allergies to seafood and pinenuts. The servers and head chefs were so accommodating plus the steaks were awesome. Ask to sit in Grant's section.

I was staying at the Hotel and wanted a lunch break during a busy day. This place was not busy, it took 10+ minutes for someone to come to our table. It took another 5 to get water. The waitress was extremely disinterested in her job. Food was average at best. Purposly did not go back

Stopped at the Avenue Grill inside the Marriott Hotel along Pennsylvania Ave. fast attentive service. Ordered a 20 oz ribeye and a New York strip. Both steaks were done to perfection! The sautè mushroom with goat cheese were the perfect complement to our steaks. Our server was fabulous!!! Highly recommended. !!!

Visiting the JW Marriott for an awards dinner. Checked out the Avenue Grill located inside for breakfast. The staff and service were great and kept my coffee full. The eggs benedict were great, made fresh. They also have a breakfast buffet that looked decent. Meals seem reasonably priced for upscale DC hotel. My breakfast was $20 total.

We enjoyed dinner at Avenue Grill. Service was good and you get 20% off your bill with a ticket stub (between 5:00-6:45 pm). The lobster mac and cheese was excellent. It had lots of lobster in it. Burgers are big and the turkey club and home-made potato chips were good.

We were pressed for time to get to a show next door at the National theater (Blithe Spirit) and this turned out to be perfect. They had good food, great service (Helen), and accelerated food-to-the-table time. Nice setting with quiet booths or tables. I had a nice glass of wine, tasty corn and clam chowder, and a delightful lobster mac... More

We ate dinner at Avenue Grill before a performance at the National Theatre which is right next door. Sadly, convenience is the only thing going for Avenue Grill. The food was mediocre at best and the service was very slow. The wine list was overpriced. Even with the convenience to the National Theatre, I will not be returning. If you... More
