Antique-like wood and carpets make this feel like a hunting lodge in the middle of the DuPont Circle area. If you want breakfast, you might consider getting there a little before opening time for a good seat (without a reservation). The counter is a little cramped for space, but the amazing menu makes up for that. The Eggs Benedict is... More

The outdoor patio area is a treat - very European feeling - and with parachutes (I think) used as umbrellas! Unique. The interior dining areas are too dark for my liking. Our meals were really good and the portions are large. Service was a tad spotty but all in all the experience was quite enjoyable.

A local sent us here, said this was one of her favorite places. Wow, not sure what happened between her last visit and ours, but what a wreck of a place! It looked cute at first glance, but as you get settled and look around more, cute evolves into tatty and not very clean. Not sure if the staff was... More

The atmosphere is comfortable/classy/happy. The clientele is upbeat and the place is full of laughter and toasts. The waitstaff are attentive and hard working. The menu selection is great and the food is prepared with perfection. You don't want to miss this place.

yesterday I had the most humiliating experience at Tabard Inn - I asked for a table solo, the guy helping me asked for a couple of minutes - no worries - after 15 minutes while service staff including the guy who asked for the couple of minutes totally ignored me, walking buy not even offering me a drink, I decided...

Wow this is one of the best restaurant in DC. It was very close to the hotel we were staying at. The food was amazing and service was #1.

Worst service ever. Never got to taste the food as they left me waiting - standing - for 1.5 hours, without ever giving me a table.

Always happy to return for dinner. However this year I called at least 10 days before to make a reservation for two. Called the main hotel number and was told I should use the web site for dinner reservations. I gave it a really GOOD try --several good tries and good never get their site to work. Called the main...

Good morning, Tabard Inn. My partner and I, on a recent trip to DC decided to pass up on one of our reliable haunts, Bistro du Coin, to have dinner again at the Tabard. We hadn't had dinner there in a year or two (we've had breakfast and brunch there on occasion in the last year or so) and looked... More

On January 29, 2014, the Tabard allowed me to reserve a special events room for my wedding rehearsal dinner that was 10 months out. On April 24, 2014, I met with their Special Events Coordinator to plan the layout of the room for the dinner and to discuss the menu. Yesterday, July 7, 2014, the third Special Events Coordinator the... More
