We reserved here using Open Table, a feature I really appreciate. Dinner was outstanding. Food is varied and interesting, almost eclectic. Service is bang-on right. I would definitely go again. $180+ for a nice selection! with drinks, for two.

We had lunch here. The food was terrific. We highly recommend the shrimp and grits. To die for. The staff was attentive without being invasive.

My husband and I ate here during our 9th Anniversary celebration in DC. From the moment we walked in I knew it was going to be a fabulous night. The ambiance in the room is wonderful. Lighting, noise levels and seating are perfect. We were initially given a drink menu for which I found a martini that looked very appetizing.... More

We came for lunch in a weekday and we had the pre fixe menu (19,90/ 3 dishes). As appetizers we had fried short ribeye and mussels. The mussels were flavorless and overcooked. I recommend the ribeye, it was tasty. Then we tried pork ragout and artic char. Since I'm not a huge fan of pasta I preferred the arctic char.... More

We ate here on our penultimate night in Washington.. We chose the 5 course tasting menu which is half portions of anything from each of the five courses on the menu.. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We had never had, buffalo, bison or shrimp and grits before so it was truly interesting and fulfilling. Definitely one to... More

My top pick for our stay in DC, unfortunately I was a bit under the weather on our visit. My companions were quite happy to dine on a vast array excellent dishes. Both had fish, Monkfish for one and Fluke for the other. Both raved about them. An assorted cheese plate of your choices was a nice selection as well.... More

I'm no restaurant critic, but when we go on vacation my wife remembers the good hotels and I typically remember the good meals for years. I can tell you I will remember our experience at Vidalia many years from now. It was simply outstanding. The decor was modern but subtle and warm, it was quiet enough that you could have... More

Excellent recommendations by the staff and by far the most attentive service I've ever had. Spectacular food and wonderful ambiance, a great treat in D.C.

Loved the Vidalia onion. The food was spectacular. Loved that they split one foie gras order and gave us each a beautiful plate. Very attentive service. Beautiful and comfortable ambiance. Recommended by a friend-so glad we went.
