A group of 5 friends/colleagues ate here after a busy day at the convention center. It was pleasant, not too noisy, with a seasonally appropriate menu and attentive service. Definitely recommended.

Well in last minute effort of scouring DC restaurants my wife cam across this one and the winning reason we choose it was..... Valet parking. lol However the parking was far from the top 10 things to love about corduroy, from the moment we walked in to the last pour of the water the experience was fantastic. The Menu was...

We chose this well reviewed restaurant for dinner for my wife's birthday. Like many other reviewers , I thought the service was top notch without being over bearing. Heirloom tomato salad topped with arugula was excellent . Many for the meat dishes are served rare to medium rare , that's just not for me but others in our party enjoyed... More

We had a perfect meal at Corduroy. The service was great and the food was over the top fantastic. I would highly recommend the heirloom tomatoe appetizer and the lobster carpaccio (rich with interesting flavors). The scallop entree was fantastic. I would a little disappointed in the big eye tuna. Would have preferred a little more seasoning, but overall it... More

From start to finish, everything was superb. I dined alone, but was treated as if I was buying dinner for 10. From the person who seated me, to the bartender, to the person who cleared my plates to my server, everyone made me feel welcome and special. I had the Chef's Tasting menu and was not disappointed. It was said... More

I have dined at Corduroy at its previous location and recently at the new location across from the DC Convention Center. The service and food were both excellent. Our waiter knew the menu, the ingredients and was very helpful in helping us order. The menu was somewhat limited - but that is a plus as only the best ingredients available... More

If you are looking for an intimate meal, with unobtrusive service that is always there just when you need it Corduroy is for you. The food is delicious; interesting without going over the top so it is still food not merely entertainment. Recommend the lobster carpaccio or heirloom tomato as a first course, antelope or guinea hen for an entree.... More

We were looking for a great dining experience within walking distance to the Washington DC Convention center and the Marriott Marquis. We were not disappointed. My colleague and I enjoyed the Chefs Taste Sampler along with the Wine Pairing. It was a wonderful meal we tried a little of everything. We started with a cold split pea soup that was... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. We both ordered the Five Course Tasting Menu which the Chef tailored to avoid shellfish for my husband. The flavors were exquisite and the service impeccable. I highly recommend dining at this restaurant for a special occasion.
