Great compliment to the museum next door. Excellent asian type cuisine by Wolfgang Puck. Excellent service and courteous staff. Well worth paying a bit more.

I was expecting a great deal from this restaurant given the positive reviews it has received. We went during lunch in December 2014 and each ordered from the set menu plus some additional items from their a la carte menu (dim sum). The taste is okay, but nothing to write home about. The problem was that they didn't have the... More

I plan my trips to DC with dinner at The Source. But this trip was different. It is always loud there and I can live with that. But we were celebrating something special and given a special menu but where they say us had holes in the seats. And the servers knew! They didn't even pretend it was the first... More

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
