Good Breakfast

The breakfast buffet spread is amazing and on weekends there are special eggs and waffle counters. The lunch and dinner menu is limited thought. The wine and drink selection is good and the bar is decent.

I had a 10oz rib eye steak. It was very tasty. The service was also good. The steak came with fryers which I don't like so much. I told the waiter and he brought me a plate of asparagus. Very nice. It was dinner time. The waiting time for the food to come was very long.

Decent Atmosphere. Mediocre buffet breakfasts. Frozen pastries. One day no nuts for Oatmeal and when I asked about it, I was brought the peanuts from the bar. Difficult to find dinner as I am allergic to garlic and lots of their meats, etc are already marinated in garlic. Very standard food and preparation.

We were staying at the Marriott without a car and only had one option for a late lunch. Fortunately, the hotel restaurant provided a good lunch with friendly service. The Caesar salad with grilled chicken was good and my wife enjoyed the fish tacos. It's not a 5 star restaurant but you knew that already.

Stayed at the Marriott and had breakfast, lunch and dinners. Standouts were the salmon, Brussels sprouts and Cobb salad. The pizza dough was too thick for my liking. Service was prompt, kind, and efficient. Highly recommend!!!

The staff are friendly. But that's where the positives end. The restaurant is on site at the Bethesda Marriott hotel. This super nice hotel needs to dump their entire menu or get rid of their cooks. There were four of us here last week on business and we literally ate up to three meals a day at this restaurant. There... More

The food at the bar is very good. I especially like the burgers and fries but the salads and various bites are very good. Guinness on tap and a decent selection of Scotch rounds out the Democracy Grill well. So in a hotel which is a bit out of the way it is good to know that you can eat... More

This restaurant is located within the Marriott Suites Bethesda. Atmosphere is typical of a nice Marriott restaurant. Service was good. I had the Cesar salad with grilled chicken. It was excellent. The chicken had a true grilled taste. However, the highlight of my meal was the dessert – the Bread Pudding Bites. I’m sure they were filled with calories, but... More
