We went to Wolfgang Puck's The Source for brunch this past Saturday and it was to die for! The menu was even reasonably priced, with the choice of five or 8 small plates and huge cocktails. We actually lucked out because the wait staff brought us three dishes we had either ordered and already consumed (the incredible chicken wings) or... More

We have tried a lot of different restaurants in DC, but had never ventured out of our French-cuisine/American-fare comfort zones until tonight. Wolfgang Puck's perfectly crafted dishes offer the perfect blend of Asian-American spices, sauces, and pairings. We split the Crystal Garlic Chive Dumplings for our appetizer. This dish was way more than enough for our party of 2 as... More

If you are in DC, be sure to plan dinner or lunch at The Source, by Wolfgang Puck. You won't be sorry. It's right behind the Newseum.

We went for a snack but had more than enough for dinner (plus take home!) The appetizers are great--very imaginative and quite delicious. And the happy hour prices provide an unbelievable value, especially the sushi. We make it a point to visit here every time we're in Washington. The ambiance was also very pleasing. Even the location is great, just... More

This is one of our favorite Washington, D.C. restaurants but we had never been with anyone with multiple food alergies. She said that no restaurant had ever been as painstakingly careful about what they served her, even cleaning the grill before preparing her pork chops. Because of her alergies, food is not that important to her. The Source has gone... More

I've been to The Source several times for dinner and the food and experience has always been excellent. I recently went with a group of 4 for the Dim Sum brunch, and was pleasantly surprised (despite reasonably high expectations) by the menu and the experience. I ordered 8 plates instead of 5 (small up-charge) because there were so many dishes... More

I was surprised to see some other "underwhelming" reviews of The Source because we had an absolutely fantastic experience here. We had multiple small plates, two entrees, and dessert here. The service was great and the tuna tartare appetizer is addictive. Dumplings were great as well. Hats off to the Sommelier for the wine recommendations. Only downside to this place... More

My review is most relevant to those who are coming in not as asian fusion lovers or particularly adventurous eaters. Clearly this restaurant is beloved by many and I'm sure fans will say that my tastes are not refined enough for this cuisine. To that I say whatever. I'm sure there are others who will feel the way I do,... More

I wish they offered better happy hour deals but the food is great. Try the beef sliders. Wine selection is good. It's quiet I think because it's expensive.
