“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Got taken here by some very special friends on a one night trip to DC
Highly recommend - Caesar salad with white anchovies ( not the nasty tinned ones you get in UK) was wonderful - entree had the pork dish - very tasty albeit the crackling not a patch on what you'd get in UK - celery root mash surprisingly good
Highly recommend

“Solid restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed a solid yummy meal here on our last night in town. Wine menu was decent. Devil egg app was good. Mains were well executed with a fair decent portion. We didn't have desert as we picked up some cupcakes and had them back at the hotel. Service was good - food was fairly fast for a higher end restaurant. I'd say this place is a good safe bet if you're looking for a good meal that won't break the bank.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

701 is a very nice restaurant, but somehow it just didn't catch my fancy. The food was fine, but not as spectacular as I had hoped it would be. Even so, the corn was delicious! Service was--frankly--only fair for a restaurant of this caliber.

“Fantastic dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We had reserved for 7pm and arrived and were quickly ushered to our table which was perfectly located. The service from there on out was again quick and without fuss. Food was great and just the right amount and great value

“Celebration Restaurant All the Way! Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

During our visit to Washington D.C. we decided to treat ourselves to a romantic dinner. Be aware that this will be a Benjamin (around $100) depending on your order. We opted in for a $50 bottle of white french wine to accompany our 3 course meals. We visited during the restaurant week they have locally there and chose from that menu. I had Salmon and the wife had scallops for the main course. For dessert we chose the peach cobbler and she had the chocolate. Excellent Food and the portions were perfect. Definitely recommend this place to romance anyone! Just be prepared for the pricey bill... But it's worth it once in a great while! :) Thanks for reading.
