I had not been to the Madhatter in more than 20 years. It has not changed except for the menu which is much better. My wife and I were with friends. We were in a partying mood and the waiter got into the jive. We...More

While the free spiced tea plays to the theme this is not really much of a wonderland. That said, the good isn’t at all bad and it is plentiful and good value for the middle of DC. The crab soup was better then average and...More

We went here with a large group of friends, later in the evening, solely because of the name. We were not disappointed. Our server was very patient with our shenanigans, and even joined in. Our food was good, drinks were great, atmosphere was comfortable and...More

The good was decent and the prices were good. The service wasn't the best. My boyfriend ordered a beer with dinner and had to ask over 15 minutes later for it.

Great atmosphere, great bar food and good drinks! That's all I require in my bars. Had the fajitas and wife had crab cake. Both great. Great beer selection too.

Visited here thinking it was a themed restaurant. Apart from a few pictures on the wall it was just like everywhere else. The food was good but a little over charged. Sorry but not a place I would go back to.

After taking 12hrs to get from California to Washington DC, all I wanted was an unfussy meal and a glass of wine and that exactly what The Madhatter provided. The bar staff were friendly and the menu exactly what you expect from a bar catering...More

Very disappointing service. I read the reviews saying the service was poor, but went there anyway and it was as bad as the reviews. I had only one drink and the bartender never returned to me and asked how I was doing. I had to...More

DC is a town of underpaid millennials and Madhatter is one of those places that caters to them. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know it going in. Madhatter is Alice in Wonderland themed (get it-Madhatter?) and consequently the decor is mildly fun,...More
