This is a very nice restaurant, great menu and a nice bar too. I only had appetizers at the bar but enjoyed all of them!

Not a traditional dim sum. No cart, more like Chinese tapas. Went for "brunch". There is a menu of about 20 Chinese tapas. Either order a la carte, or pick 5 or pick 8 price. We were party of 4 and did 2 of the "pick eight". Tasted nearly every thing on the menu. Some of the plates were easy... More

There were four of us who had dinner here- two were disappointed, two thought it was fine. I thought it was fine. I had the lacquered duck which I thought was great, but thought the "tiny dumplings" were just average. Another dumpling dish was also just average. The first half of dinner had good service, the second half was very... More

Saturday Dim Sum Brunch was upscale and delicious. You can choose five items from the menu for $30 or 8 for $40. You can also tack on individual dishes for $7.50 Our very pleasant server said we could order as many dishes at a time as we wanted, even one at a time if we'd like. The two of us... More

We had a lovely at this Wolfgang Puck restaurant before going to the Newseum (it's next door). The meal and service was excellent. The environment in the restaurant was really relaxing, just what we needed after a weary morning sightseeing.

Wolfgang Puck has a jewel in Scott Drewno, his chef at the Source in Wasington. Scott has been seen wearing a coat and tie and visiting with diners to sample their experience from a front of the house perspective. When he is cooking is food is amazingly good. His Asian touch makes the restaurant even better. Best kept secret is... More

We arrived about11:30 on a Friday. No wait time. Took the elevator to the second floor and waited to receive the menu although our waiter clearly saw us being seated. Wolfgang Puck had an excellent vision when he created this modern Asian-fusion cuisine. We enjoyed the lobster springrolls, pumpkin-miso soup, glazed salmon salad and the Wagyu burger. Everything was done... More

Beverages were, one white wine, one red wine, tea, soda, and beer. NO MIXED COCKTAILS. The water was on the table, the... More

Great place for drinks and appetizers after dinner. Very clever drink menu, and the bartender was great with surpising us with mystery drinks and shots.

No a business trip I got the opportunity to eat at Wolfgang Puck Resturant. Wow, an excellent choice. A bit noisy, trendy, up and coming and delicious. I read several reviews about the steak and drunken noodles. Why mess with success. I did the steak and a side of drunken noodle. Perfectly cooked, medium rare. The noodles were spicy tender... More
