Had an amazing brunch buffett here on the weekend when I was in DC. Lots of people come so definitely be early. Food was good. Lots of sexy guys to look out while eating this good food. Not cheap though.

The hubs and I wandered in for brunch and were pleasantly surprised. The place is much larger than it appears from the outside and walkable from Dupont Circle. We did the brunch buffet and $10 bottomless mimosas (you could also just do champagne). The buffet is a classic brunch buffet. Nothing ground-breaking or gourmet about it but it's good. There...

After spending a day sightseeing, we headed to the DuPont area for dinner. Walked and walked and finally decided on The Front Page. Little confusing with the dual entries on both side of the restaurant, but so happy we stopped here. We got seated quickly and our server was prompt and courteous. Our food came quickly and was cooked perfectly.... More

Boisterous but good value $10 bottomless champagne or mimosas are hard to argue with. Excellent reliable food. Eaten here many times. Never had a bad meal.

I did several happy hours with my friends here in The Front Page Restaurant and Grill. Try their bruschettas! They are truly classy. They have a small selection of wines but I tried an Argentinian Malbec that was excellent. I haven't tried the restaurant yet but soon I will. For the happy hour you have two free tacos; but try...

My husband and I stopped by The Front Page yesterday for lunch. We sat outside, since it was so beautiful. The service was friendly, but a bit on the slow side -- we didn't get silverware or napkins until a full 5 minutes after our food had been delivered and we finally were able to ask someone. The food was... More

The sidewalk cafe atmosphere was a great place to catch up with an old friend. The food was pretty much average. To their credit the lamburger was an interesting item for the menu and certainly was decently prepared. At the same time the fries were typically mass produced and mostly cold. The margarita I had was watery to average and... More

The menu isn't the fanciest, the atmosphere isn't the most posh, but if you want good food at a reasonable price, with friendly service, this is the place for you. Nestled about half way between the two DuPont Circle Metro exits and within easy walking distance of several hotels, the location cants be beat. There were decent Happy Hour drink... More

The service was friendly but slow except the hostess didn't smile once. The food was warm at best and tasted good. It was better than bad but not great.

I was in town for a conference and this was nearby. The menu looked great and I was in the mood for a really good burger and this place had one on the menu that it was renown for. So I ordered it. It was average. Burger itself was cooked perfectly, but I've had better buns at chick fil a... More
