Our first visit to Corduroy in Washington DC. What a find..WOW!..every aspect was exceptional..service was professional and personable with precise, knowledgeable and passionate descriptions of menu items and specials. Food was just extraordinary. Ambience was classy, perfect for couples or small groups to enjoy a remarkable dining experience. Reservations a must..Dress is business casual or better..it would be inappropriate to... More

Friends had recommended a popular restaurant near the hotel where we were staying as a spur-of-the-moment getaway but I was disappointed when I read the reviews of that restaurant and started searching the internet for alternatives. Corduroy looked good in print and we set out on foot on a bitterly-cold night. Located on the second floor of a row house... More

Every aspect of our meal was special for a special night of celebrating two birthdays. Great service and great food.

When I moved to Washington I had heard about Corduroy and the impeccable menu. In all honesty, the scallops were delicious. In fact, if I were to go back to Corduroy I would order them again. If you are looking for somewhere quite then this is your place. It was just a little too quite for my taste. In my... More

My partner had told me about Corduroy when we were in DC a while back, and so when offered the opportunity to select a restaurant for a business dinner here, I chose it. This is a beautifully decorated modern space inside an older DC townhouse. The service was attentive and thorough, and the food magnificent. I had the wild mushroom... More

Our best meal in Washington - ambience, food, service was all spot on. Restaurant itself is situated on a rather run down street so would suggest you know your directions or arrive by cab. We were sat upstairs which seemed a little quieter but that suited us. They have a lovely modern bar which looked good. All 3 courses were... More

A large group of us ate here recently and we had high expectations. It was very good but I wouldn't say it was amazing. It also isn't cheap! After some deliberations we decided on the Chefs menu, which at $70 isn't too bad. The food was very good, well presented and original. The 5 courses were small but we weren't... More

I had heard nothing but good things about Corduroy and was looking forward to having dinner there during a recent visit to Washington. For some reason, it's hard to find a good restaurant that's also quiet enough that conversation can be carried out at a reasonable volume. I'd heard Corduroy fit the bill, and selected it for that reason since... More
