The buffet, while pricey, is the quickest way to get a non-fast food lunch. The Chinese dishes are my favorite. The salad bar is extensive. The desserts are amazing, so I try not to over indulge! 😃

Had the lunch buffet, good selection of tasty food. You pay by weight. Had coconut shrimp a beer in the bar, shrimp was quite good and the beer was cold. What more do you hope for with bar food. Had a small pizza for lunch that was pretty good and could have maybe served 3 people. The prices are maybe... More

For a cafeteria style eatery, this place is top notch. The food is fresh, variety is large, and seating is plenty. This works out perfectly as a one-size fits all cafeteria. Students have room to eat and study, hospital workers have a large selection of grab-and-go food, and everyone can find something they like. Prices aren't that bad. Soup is... More

A friend was having cancer treatment at the Hospital nearby and I was directed here for lunch. They have a lot to choose from and I went to the hot bar. The choices are wide and I found that I could have a Caribbean-style meal, complete with sweet plantains. The food was really pretty good. Flavorful for a buffet. But... More

If you're not living in a dorm -- ok, especially if you are -- this is the best place for food (and drinks) on the Georgetown campus. It has easy access to the Georgetown Hospital, as a bonus. Made to order sandwiches (hot or cold), extensive hot bar, long salad bar, good soups (especially the hot and sour), are all... More

Epicurean is located on the Georgetown U campus. The food is good, the quality is good.. it's expensive. An average sized salad off the salad bar can end up over $10 if one is not careful. It can get crowded. It is convenient.

Hospital stays are always stressful and often scary. The Epicurean offered a quiet place to recharge, with lots of food options. Pete, the sushi master, welcomed us at the bar and prepared a beautiful assortment of sushi--exceptional personal attention. Super fresh salad bar! We really appreciated this place when a family member was in the hospital.

We visited Epicurean and Company for dinner because it was the only place close to our hotel. The experience is like being in a huge college dining area - wide open seating and different stations for different types of food. We chose a table in the bar area. This isn't a place where servers come tend to you. We had... More

I would not have believed that the best salad and buffet bar in the Washington DC area is on the Georgetown Hospital and University campus, but it's true. The only good thing about being at the Georgetown hospital is being able to get fresh and tasty food at the Epicurean. They have very good sandwiches, too, and sushi, and a... More

A great place with so many choices. It will definitely satisfy most appetites. A buffet style atmosphere that weighs your food, so be careful because this place is a bit pricey.
